Reggie Bush hopeful to play, but will retire if he can’t find a team this year

Seattle has a need at defensive end and an open roster spot after placing starter Cliff Avril on injured reserve with a neck/spine injury.

Freeney has 122.5 career sacks, which is third among active players behind Julius Peppers (150.0) and DeMarcus Ware (138.5). The seven-time Pro Bowl selection and 2005 AFC Defensive Player of the Year spent his first 11 NFL seasons with the Colts and has also played for the Chargers and Cardinals during his 15 NFL seasons.

After Sunday’s win over Cincinnati, Bryant commented on an Instagram post defending himself against fellow Steelers wideout JuJu Smith-Schuster. Bryant caught just one pass Sunday for three yards, while Smith-Schuster, a rookie from USC, had two catches for 39 yards and a touchdown.

That’s a play off a quote from Mike Tomlin about having “bigger fish to fry” than discussing Martavis Bryant’s social media habits. Bryant said in an Instagram comment late Sunday night that Smith-Schuster is “nowhere near better” than him, while reaffirming his desire for a trade.

Smith-Schuster said Monday he didn’t take Bryant’s comments personally. A day later, he has no wheels.

Arians was hospitalized in August 2016 in San Diego with symptoms of diverticulitis during a joint training camp practice with the Chargers. In November of that same year, he was rushed to the hospital with chest pains to be evaluated but was later released.

With Dan Bailey expected to miss time with a groin injury, the Dallas Cowboys will sign veteran kicker Mike Nugent after he won a competition with Jason Myers and Sam Irwin-Hill on Tuesday.chargers_006

Mike Tomlin Jersey calls Martavis Bryant Jersey situation ‘somewhat of a distraction’

Steelers coach Mike Tomlin is trying to get his team ready for a tough test Sunday on the road against the Lions, but wide receiver Martavis Bryant is making things difficult.

Bryant told ESPN’s Josina Anderson that he wants to remain in Pittsburgh, but would have to leave if his role fails to change. Bryant has just three receptions in the Steelers’ last two games.

The Steelers (4-2) have won their last two matchups and hold a two-game lead over the Ravens in the AFC North.

Rex Burkhead returned from injury and totaled six carries and one target on 13 snaps Sunday against Atlanta. This is clearly a four-man attack, which limits the fantasy appeal of each player. White is a fringe RB2 in PPR formats, whereas Lewis should be considered a flex option. Gillislee and Burkhead aren’t seeing enough volume to warrant a spot in your lineup and are borderline rosterable.

But it was hard to tell if it was just optics. Shortly after 1 p.m., Goodell and Smith stepped out of the session to tell Lockhart and union spokesman George Atallah to craft a joint NFL-NFLPA statement, a symbol of rare cooperation.

Players were still skeptical that the owners and league executives beyond Goodell were motivated to act — a week later, Chargers tackle Russell Okung would label the league’s lack of urgency disappointing and said the players-owners Igor Larionov Youth jersey meeting appeared unproductive at best and disingenuous at worst.

Before everyone left the room that afternoon, Davis made one last point: how important it had been that acting Jets owner Chris Johnson, the brother of Woody Johnson, now Trump’s ambassador to the United Kingdom, had visited with every player in the locker room to hear their concerns.

He’s turned that into 10 touchdowns against just three interceptions this season. He’s also good for sixth in the NFL with 1,362 yards passing, just 5 yards behind Aaron Rodgers for fourth, 3 yards behind Philip Rivers for fifth.

Nelson Agholor is having a nice comeback year as well, as he’s second on the team in receiving behind tight end Zach Ertz. So there’s no shortage of talent in this game. Hopefully it’s closer to what we Patrick Beverley Jersey saw between the Rams and 49ers as opposed to the Packers-Bears blowout.

They look like a bunch of fierce Smurfs running around the field in our sport that’s often referred to as modern day gladiators. Could have sworn those things looked more cuddly than violent.

Charles had played nine seasons, Hodge said. He said Charles could have easily been satisfied and concluded it was enough. That his career had plenty of sparkle.

After what he did to Rodgers, to the NFC North race and to the entire NFC portrait, Barr shut that down.

It will be fascinating to see what Packers coach Mike McCarthy does with Hundley and with this offense. McCarthy and Rodgers throughout their long union have had their squabbles, their different preferences on how to attack teams offensively and on play-calling. On what the Packers offense is and how it should be orchestrated.
Deatrich Wise Jr Authentic Jersey
Now, with such a green quarterback, McCarthy will not have to deal with so much pushback. Surely McCarthy would rather have the supreme talent of Rodgers, but there is something vibrant for a coach, a creator, a leading offensive mind at the NFL level who believes in his design and prefers its implementation following his specific imprint.

McCarthy offered me a window into how he views young quarterbacks last March at the NFL owners meetings when he discussed the college read-option ones entering the NFL and how some NFL offensive gurus are hesitant to embrace them:

Nelson Agholor Jersey juked Budda Baker Jersey into oblivion for Carson Wentz’s 4th passing TD

Carson Wentz has thrown a career-high four touchdowns against the Cardinals in only three quarters. More impressively, he’s thrown those scoring passes to four different targets.

The fourth, and arguably most impressive, came when Nelson Agholor shook rookie safety Budda Baker to his core with a spinning, juking dash that capped off a 72-yard reception in the end zone.

It’s great, Zimmer said. He’s worked extremely hard. Obviously not only him but the training staff, the doctors, [head strength and conditioning coach] Mark Uyeyama, all those guys have done a great job with him to try to rehab him and get him ready to practice. It’s a great deal for Teddy and we’ll take it one day at a time just like we did for the last 14 months.

Elite Mens Tyler Bozak Jersey Bridgewater injured his knee in practice on Aug. 30, 2016, and has been on the physically unable to perform list this season.

Bridgewater has been present in team meetings throughout the past 14 months. Zimmer said he is caught up on the playbook and receives the game script every week to run by himself.

He’ll be ready, Zimmer said. Teddy’s smart.

When Bridgewater practices, it opens a 21-day window for the Vikings to decide whether to promote him to the active roster or place him on injured reserve.
Max Unger Limited Jersey
During his time with New Orleans, Brees hasn’t needed a great defense. He hasn’t even needed a decent one. When Sean Payton gives Brees a remotely competent defense, Brees delivers him to the postseason. I’ve mentioned this before, but the numbers are staggering. Check out the chart on the right.

The Saints have ranked in the top 25 of the league’s 32 defenses four times in 11 seasons with Brees. They’ve made the playoffs each time and won an average of 11.3 games along the way. Again, the Saints’ defense doesn’t even have to be good.

Harper, Zimmerman HRs lift Nats past Cubs 6-3 to even NLDS

Things were looking bleak for Bryce Harper, Ryan Zimmerman and the rest of the Washington Nationals. They had accumulated one run and four hits through the first 16 innings of their NL Division Series against the Chicago Cubs.

I think that would be an unfortunate decision if [a mandate in respect to the anthem is] all that came out of it, if there was no effort to replace the platform that guys have been using to draw attention to issues in our country, said Jenkins. If there is no effort to assist players in that, I think it would be very, very unfortunate, and I don’t think that would go over well.

Do you have the work habits and skills to be successful? I believe if the players and coaches respect my viewpoint of the game, then fans will as well. And full credit there goes to the NBA and to ESPN. They are willing to put people like me in a position to do this. It’s pretty cool to have a greater role and the chance to continue to cover a sport that I love with the best players and coaches in the world.

He’ll replace Hopkins, in his third season as Washington’s primary kicker. Coach Jay Gruden said he learned Monday that Hopkins had possibly been dealing with a right hip rotator muscle strain. Gruden called the injury “pretty significant for a kicker.”

Because Hopkins will be on short-term injured reserve, he must miss at least eight weeks. He will be eligible to return for a Dec. 17 game against Arizona

Hopkins is 9-for-11 on field goals this season and missed one of his 13 extra point attempts. After making all but three of his 28 field goal attempts in 2015, he slumped last season and was 34-for-42. But his strong leg has helped on kickoffs: 20 of 27 have resulted in touchbacks.

Marcus Mariota Jersey is yet another indirect reminder of the Browns’ QB cluelessness and listlessness.

The Broncos’ defense won’t get punctured every week the way the Giants surprisingly did. But their offense is always going to be hit-or-miss. Trevor Siemian got hurt in last week’s game, and now Emmanuel Sanders is injured. The Chargers have finally broken through on close games the last two weeks, but now they’re back at their home with their non-home-field advantage.

The Vikings are your new leaders in the NFC North, and thanks to their defense, they’ll beat on a mediocre team from the AFC North. The Ravens used to be new people eaters in purple, but Minnesota has done everything it can to reclaim its old name under Mike Zimmer. Sad to say for Baltimore, but Case Keenum, not Joe Flacco, is the best QB in this game.

The Browns are even more terrible on offensive than anybody could have imagined. Their defense is starting to wear down as a result and will get run over in the second half by DeMarco Murray and Derrick Henry.

Jameis Winston might be able to play through his injury, but he’s got to play much better and get a ton of help from Doug Martin, because the defense isn’t making any impact plays when it counts. They’re not a team breakout this year.

Andy Dalton and A.J. Green are headlining the offense, but they need to get their running game going post-bye with rookie Joe MIxon to better support their defense.

We are grateful to the Dallas Cowboys Jersey

Philadelphia raised the bar by taking the Draft to another level, and this new opportunity in Dallas will enable us to continue the event’s evolution and grow it even further, NFL commissioner Roger Goodell said. We are grateful to the Dallas Cowboys, the cities of Arlington, Dallas, and Frisco, and the Dallas Sports Commission for their leadership in turning this vision into reality.

It marks the first time an NFL draft will held at a stadium and the first time it has been held in Texas.

Zack Wheeler Authentic Jersey Last year, the Philadelphia Museum of Art hosted the event, which earned rave reviews for the fun atmosphere and the backdrop of fans cheering as their teams made their selections.
Walt Aikens Authentic Jersey
Knowing Cowboys owner Jerry Jones, he will want to ensure the upcoming draft is bigger and better than past events.

The Bengals looked different in their two wins before their bye, on the watch of new offensive coordinator Bill Lazor. That shouldn’t be enough to overtake the Steelers in Heinz Field, except the Steelers have been on a rollercoaster the last two weeks, a wretched loss to the Jaguars followed by ending the Chiefs’ undefeated run. If the mood Ben Roethlisberger is in is positive, that should be good enough.

Sean McVay should be considered the favorite for coach of the year after revving up everything as Jeff Fisher’s rookie replacement and upgrade. He wasn’t too young for the job, and his team isn’t too young to make a jump to the playoffs.

The Saints are rediscovering a strong running game and a sack- and takeaway-oriented defense to try to prop up the championship window with Drew Brees. The scary thing is he hasn’t yet played his absolute best.

Chiefs coach Andy Reid says ‘gut’ told him to not attempt field goal

The Chiefs sustained their first loss of the season Sunday, to the Steelers, because of questionable choices and interesting clock management by coach Andy Reid.

However, one play that has stood out took place early in the fourth quarter, when the Chiefs were down 12-3 and Reid decided on fourth-and-2 at the Pittsburgh 4 to go for a touchdown, not a field goal.

It backfired. Instead of taking the three points and putting Kansas City within a score of the Steelers, the Chiefs got nothing.

But this is a team game, it’s the ultimate team game, and we need to be better. We need to be better with the 11 players we have, with the phase that we’re in, and ultimately that’s my responsibility.

Limited Jamaal Williams Jersey Brett Hundley is my quarterback, Joe Callahan is the backup, that is the direction we’re going, that is the focus and that’s where we are as a football team.

But wide receiver Jordy Nelson helped illustrate how difficult it will be for the Packers without Rodgers, underlining the importance of a player regarded as one of the best quarterbacks of all time.

Asked what Rodgers means to the Packers, Nelson replied: Everything. He’s our leader, he’s our quarterback. Great person on and off the field, great guy in the locker room, old guys, young guys, best quarterback in the game.

Alex Smith Kids Jersey Next up for Hundley and the Packers are the resurgent New Orleans Saints (3-2).

They move on to the American League Championship Series and avoid the same fate as 2015

The stakes: You have to love how the narrative can change so quickly. It went from the “Red Sox are dead,” to “Man, the Astros’ bullpen is kind of crappy and if the Red Sox can steal Game 4, they have Chris Sale going in Game 5.” This has been the blowout series so far: For the first time, the first three games of a playoff series were all decided by five or more runs. The Astros won 101 games, but they’re one loss away from having to beat a guy who struck out 308 batters to keep their season alive.

If the Astros win: They move on to the American League Championship Series and avoid the same fate as 2015, when they led the division series against the Royals but lost Games 4 and 5.

Quinn became the first quarterback in Browns history to throw three touchdown passes in one quarter during a 2009 win over Detroit.

What happened? A prolonged contract holdout crippled Quinn’s chances to start as a rookie and opened the door for Derek Anderson to claim the position. The regular rotation of Anderson and Quinn over the next two seasons by two different coaching staffs did neither quarterback any favors. Quinn was traded to Denver in the 2010 offseason.

That juice surrounding their marquee matchup years ago now flows to when Stephen Curry faces Damian Lillard or when Russell Westbrook plays against James Harden or even when Lonzo Ball goes up against De’Aaron Fox. Circle-the-calendar Cavs games this season will be about James vs. _______, not whomever Wade and Rose battle with.

Wade is 35 now. Rose turned 29 last week. They’ve both strayed from the franchises that drafted them and turned them into stars — Wade had a drama-filled Chicago homecoming last season; Rose had an ill-fated stint with the New York Knicks — and have settled in with Cleveland as supporting cast members behind James, whose star, nearly seven years later, still hasn’t diminished.ravens_126

Lamar Miller Jersey and D’Onta Foreman Jersey at running back. Houston’s offensive line is playing better than expected

Patriots owner Robert Kraft is still intrigued by the prospect of buying a Premier League club but has concerns about the absence of a salary cap.

Kraft, 76, has overseen five Super Bowl wins since purchasing the Patriots in 1994 and also founded MLS side New England Revolution.

The billionaire came close to buying Liverpool in 2005 before the takeover by Fenway Sports Group, which also owns the MLB Red Sox.

The 23-year-old QB was injured in the Titans 57-14 loss to the Texans in Week 4. Mariota injured his hamstring and missed Tennessee’s matchup with the Dolphins in Week 5. The Titans lost 16-10 to move to 2-3 on the season.

Mariota’s 2016 season was ended by a broken leg, and with the injury this year, he has now missed games in each of his first three seasons.

However, when Mariota is on the field and healthy he looks like one of the quarterbacks of the future for the NFL. He has completed 61.4 percent of his passes with 48 touchdowns and 22 interceptions.

Give Houston general manager Rick Smith and coach Bill O’Brien credit for identifying Watson as a game-changing talent and trading up in the draft to get him. He fits in nicely with a fine group of skill players, including DeAndre Hopkins and Will Fuller at wide receiver, plus Lamar Miller and D’Onta Foreman at running back. Houston’s offensive line is playing better than expected, with Watson’s ability to escape pressure certainly helping the cause.
