Jameis Winston injury update: Bucs QB ruled out for Falcons game

Posted on by

Buccaneers quarterback Jameis Winston has been ruled out for Sunday’s game against the Falcons after doctors re-examined his right (throwing) shoulder Monday, coach Dirk Koetter announced.

Kenny Stills caught seven of nine targets for 180 yards and one touchdown against Tampa Bay’s struggling pass defense Sunday. He has now handled nine-plus targets during four of his past five games. Stills sits third at the position in fantasy points during that span and is up to 20th on the season. As noted last week, the Dolphins run a ton of three-wide sets, which has allowed Stills to see the field on 97 percent of Miami’s pass plays this season. The fifth-year receiver was over-reliant on touchdowns (nine on 42 receptions) en route to finishing 46th in fantasy points last year, but he already has 40 catches (and five scores) in 10 games this season. Stills is a flex option against New England this week.

Also Wednesday, Baltimore acquired outfielder Jaycob Brugman from Oakland for cash or a player to be named. Brugman made his big league debut in June with the Athletics and played in 48 games, batting .266 with three homers and 12 RBI.

Wade was Colorado’s seventh-round pick in the 2013 amateur draft. The 6-foot-3 right-hander was a reliever and starter over the last two seasons for Double-A Hartford. The 25-year-old is 29-35 with a 4.05 ERA over five minor league seasons. He has 354 strikeouts in 137 games.

Baltimore has traded all but $500,000 of its 2016-17 international bonus pool, which originally was $5.75 million, and has spent $340,000 on four prospects: Venezuelan outfielder Ricardo Castro ($150,000), Dominican shortstop Hector Vizcaino ($80,000), Dominican outfielder Josue Cruz ($80,000) and Dominican third baseman Oscar Olivares ($30,000).

Bengals linebacker Vontaze Burfict was ejected in the second quarter of Sunday’s game against the Titans.
Giants Jersey
Elite Mike Schmidt Jersey A day after Outside the Lines reported that, in an owners-only meeting in New York, Texans owner Bob McNair said, We can’t have the inmates running the prison, McNair released a statement insisting that he was referring to league executives as inmates, not the players, drawing skepticism. According to sources, McNair asked Goodell to publicly back him up. Goodell refused.

Game Ben Bishop Jersey If Goodell does re-sign, nobody knows exactly how long he will serve. There’s always a risk that people stay too long, and I don’t want to be in that category, he said at a Bloomberg conference in early November.

Goodell is already beginning to duplicate his most valuable contribution to the 2011 CBA deal: unifying the owners en masse against the union. Pash has advised the owners in meetings to prepare for a bloody and bitter battle in four years — a fitting possible capstone to the tumultuous Goodell era. I’m here for you through that, Koa Misi Jersey Goodell has told some owners. After that, you guys should start having a conversation.

Chicago Bears linebacker Leonard Floyd damaged his MCL and PCL in his right knee, coach John Fox announced on his weekly radio show on WBBM-AM 780.

Floyd avoided injury to his ACL, but Fox conceded that the second-year pass-rusher may still have to undergo season-ending surgery.

It’s going to be some time until he can come back — if it all, the rest of this season, Fox said. It’s good to hear it wasn’t the ACL. … It was MCL, PCL. We’ll require some work to get him fixed, but it’s obviously better news than a total reconstruction.

Floyd injured the knee in the fourth quarter of Sunday’s loss to the Detroit Lions when Bears cornerback Kyle Fuller collided with Floyd’s knee while attempting to make a low tackle on Lions running back Theo Riddick.

Elliott was caught on camera pulling down a woman’s top during a St. Patrick’s Day parade in Dallas.

The woman’s bare breast was exposed in public. No charges were filed, but the NFL reviewed the incident and spoke to the woman. In its letter to Elliott, the NFL said your behavior during this event was inappropriate and disturbing, and reflected a lack of respect for women.

Richard Rodgers Limited Jersey Although the incident did not factor into his suspension, the league told him it suggests a pattern of poor judgment and behavior.

Keanu Neal Game Jersey On the way into a football game, two grown men were dressed as American flags, their faces striped alternately white and red, with a blue panel on their foreheads with white stars. American flags waved Detroit Red Wings Womens Jersey from tailgates, Bob Seger and Aerosmith and other classic rock blasted from speakers. Scores of flag T-shirts and patriotic apparel, almost as many as Joe Flacco jerseys.

Twenty minutes before kickoff, to loud applause, Lee Greenwood’s God Bless the U.S.A. played inside M&T Bank Stadium, followed by a short crowd chant of U-S-A! U-S-A! U-S-A! A short while later, with each team on its sideline, the PA announcer asked minutes before the kickoff of the biggest rivalry game on the schedule锟斤拷the hated Steelers were in town锟斤拷for the crowd to pray for kindness, for unity, for equality and justice for all Americans. Most of the Ravens on their sideline kneeled and bowed their heads.

The early results have been auspicious, as the Lakers enter the week ranked 11th in defensive efficiency. The offense remains a work in progress as Luke Walton tinkers with lineup combos and the young’uns adapt to the read-oriented scheme.

It’s a joke, and it’s proof that we are living way too much on Twitter and in the internet world where this is a big deal. But in reality if you just judge Donald Trump, this is nothing. This doesn’t crack the top 100 things he has ever said.

All two dozen people in the room are silent. You can hear the air conditioner struggling. Everyone is thinking the same thing, which is that this must be exactly the type of speech Ortiz delivered hundreds of times, before big games, at the center of the home clubhouse in Fenway Park. It is undeniably rousing.

Cameron Artis-Payne Womens Jersey Not throwing a pity party for the Giants at 0-4, but losing two straight games on field goals on the last play of the game 锟斤拷 kind of a brutal way to live.

The Knicks then followed it up by crushing the Cavs. They enter one of their most forgiving weeks of the season, and a chance to pick up a couple of wins with four games at MSG. To do so, they’ll need to shoot better. They rank 27th in true shooting percentage entering play this week.

It’s early in the Langford sweepstakes, but Miller is no stranger to recruiting splashes. He steered Courtney Lee to Western Kentucky, and Lee wound up the school’s all-time scoring co-leader with 2,238 points.

There will always be good and bad, says Ebarb, Prescott’s uncle, who had driven the five hours from Orange, Texas, to AT&T Stadium for the loss to the Packers, as he does for most of his nephew’s home games. It’s how you recover and move forward. And he’s really good at that.

Rob Scuderi Elite Jersey His well-rounded game and time with seven different franchises makes it more difficult to encapsulate his career, but he has 435 home runs, 1,587 RBIs and 1,582 runs scored. He’s one of just 33 players to reach 1,500 in both categories — a list that includes the elite of the elite. His career WAR of 70.0 ranks seventh among center fielders since 1900. Womens Todd Helton Jersey Add it up and he should be a Hall of Famer.

Schmidt remembered Neal’s struggles last season.

Posted on by

Atlanta has the kind of roster that will prove popular for finding fantasy free agents early this season; an infusion of youth and untested veterans earning more minutes fosters statistical potential. Prince is a key example of how opportunity rates can drive value, as he’s averaging 1.5 steals, 1.5 3-pointers and a nice rebounding rate from the wing in 29.3 minutes (32.7 over past three).

Over his past four games, all starts, Richardson is proving his awesome finish to last season wasn’t an aberrational stretch of success, but an enduring trend, as he’s averaged 13.8 points, 4.3 boards, 3 assists, 1.3 steals, 1 block and 2 3-pointers as a key combo guard and glue guy for the Heat. Even when the scoring production isn’t present, a rich blend of defensive metrics supports steady value for Richardson.

“When we played against James Neal last season, he was on the fourth line in Nashville. Now, it ended up better for him at the end of the year, but he’s come here and played really well for us because we need him to. We rely on guys that rise to the occasion,” he said. “It takes the pressure off a lot of guys, to have guys like Neal and David Perron and Reilly Smith that are proven goal scorers in this league. It takes the pressure off of guys who played lesser roles in other cities.”

Trending: Nick Saban’s team has scored more points than all but three teams in the Power 5 and allowed fewer points than all of the others. After three straight appearances in the College Football Playoff, the Tide are assured of a top-two spot in the initial rankings as LSU comes to town.

Kershaw vs. Keuchel could swing the World Series

The players who populate the Houston Astros and Los Angeles Dodgers postseason rosters don’t have the luxury of sitting back, taking a deep breath and Nicklas Backstrom Jersey enjoying their involvement in what could turn out to be a classic World Series. They’re too immersed in individual confrontations, the inning-by-inning strategy and all the other minutia that makes October baseball such a challenge and a joy to relive and dissect.

The Jets could actually be in the hunt still if they could close out games late. They’ve been outscored by 56 points in the fourth quarter, second worst in the NFL. Josh McCown has a Total QBR of 12 in the fourth quarter this year (and a 69 Total QBR in first three quarters).

Murray finally made good use of his playing time on Sunday with a 26-point outing in Brooklyn, and it’s not like the Knicks are doing a better job defending point guards. In fact, they’re kind of awful at it. Murray might not be the point guard so many of us envisioned, but his price remains depressed and, at the very least, he should be in for another 20-point night.

After having 19 and 10 against Washington, Brandon Ingram was a nonfactor for most of this game, with nine points and two rebounds. The Lakers just didn’t have enough offense down the stretch when Toronto took over the game. Kentavious Caldwell-Pope also struggled offensively with only two points to go with seven rebounds.

Julius Randle had another strong game and appears to be getting comfortable with Womens Thaddeus Young Jersey his new role off the bench. Playing angry and inspired, Randle gave the Lakers energy and hustle on both ends with 18 points.

Quote-a-Ball: I think he’s been good. I think him figuring out when to be aggressive and when to get guys the ball is obviously going to be an ongoing process. But the way he rebounds the ball and passes the ball, even if he is not scoring, he still helps our team win. The thing I have been most impressed with Lonzo is the way he has been playing defense.

Has Paul George ever come off the bench and given his team 23 points on 6 of 7 shooting from three? What about Carmelo Anthony? While everyone was playing checkers this offseason, the Warriors were playing a game that is still light years away from being invented. Young is obviously the most important free-agent signing of the summer. While Irving is too busy playing buddy-buddy with his old teammates, Young looks ready to take Zaza Pachulia’s spot in the starting lineup, hitting open threes and exposing his tongue with the same joie de vivre as a Miami Dolphins offensive line coach.

Results have been mixed. The Vikings were 7-8 in his starts, even as Bradford set an NFL record by completing 71.6 percent of his passes. His acquisition took on greater value when Bridgewater’s recovery extended into the 2017 season. But wear and tear in Bradford’s chronic left knee has limited him to two starts. His future with John Jaso Womens Jersey the team is in doubt.

That’s what made the win even sweeter.

It doesn’t mean (anything) if we don’t get the win, Waiters said.

Trail Blazers: Portland’s lowest point total for any quarter is five points. … It was the last of a four-game home stand for the Blazers. … Meyers Leonard is currently out because of right lateral ankle sprain. … It was the 76th 30-point game of Lillard’s career.

QUOTABLE: The first quarter was really nice and the second quarter was really bad. –Stotts.

Wentz was 18 of 32 for 211 yards and one interception. He threw a 53-yard TD pass to Alshon Jeffery and 1-yard TD pass to Zach Ertz. The second-year pro leads the NFL with 19 TD passes, most by an Eagles quarterback through eight games.

The Clippers were drubbed 141-113 by the Golden State Warriors on Monday, a game in which the reigning NBA champions shot 58 percent, smothered the shooting game of the Los Angeles guards and holding Griffin to 16 points and just 10 field-goal attempts

With Chris Paul gone, Griffin is now the leader of the offensive attack, and Rivers does not want him to be the least bit shy. However, other teams know that, too. The Warriors chose to double-team Griffin early and often, and then they beat the Clippers severely in transition.

They came pretty early, Griffin said. Some teams wait for the first dribble, some teams wait until you have a foot outside the lane. They doubled pretty early and pretty consistently throughout the game.

Road trend, talent favor No. 16 Auburn at Texas A&M

Posted on by

Neither Auburn nor Texas A&M has been able to win on its home turf since the schools began playing each other as members of the SEC West in 2012.

Before that, the Tigers and Aggies never met in either program’s home stadium. They played in Dallas in a 1911 regular-season game and in the 1986 Cotton Bowl.

The Pelicans made only seven of their 28 3-point attempts, hitting only 3 of 18 from deep in the second half, when they scored just 35 points after leading 64-40 at halftime. They also turned the ball over 20 times, leading to 25 Magic points.

Check out the team sites for the Orlando Magic and the New Orleans Pelicans for more game coverage.

It was a crucial bounce-back win for the Chiefs, who had their 12-game AFC West winning streak snapped 10 days ago in Oakland. The Chiefs had won five straight to start the season before losing to the Steelers and then to the Raiders on Derek Carr’s last-second touchdown throw.

It started just like old times, too: Jamaal Charles with a run, the Chiefs with a touchdown.

The only difference was Charles, who went to four Pro Bowls with the Chiefs, was back in Kansas City with the Broncos. And the TD came when the opportunistic Peters stripped him, picked up the loose ball and returned it 45 yards for the opening score.

When the Chiefs were on offense, they went right to Kelce, who also had success against the Broncos in both of their meetings last season. He beat Darian Stewart for a 29-yard TD catch and a 14-0 lead.

The Reviews: From 9/6/2017: You wouldn’t know this place existed unless you actually looked for it. I was out walking around one night by Progressive Field when I noticed a rather dark bar playing some music from speakers above their door. I will definitely be going back. It’s such a low key bar but the booze is great and the help was fantastic. From 10/9/2016: Great spot to get a drink! I found this place to be more relaxed.. quiet.. and hip than a lot of surrounding places. From 7/7/2016: Depending on your mood, this is the place. Best non-sports bar to swing by before or after any sporting event.
