Mike McCarthy says Packers will go running back by committee

Don’t expect any one running back to carry the load in Green Bay this season.

Packers coach Mike McCarthy said the demands of the position are such that running backs Jamaal Williams, Ty Montgomery, and Aaron Jones will all be better off if none of them get too many carries.

He is running around and he is practicing, coach Todd Bowles said. I am glad he is healthy. The test will come in pads. In shorts and T-shirts, I think everyone can catch balls.

Colts coach Frank Reich believes his starting quarterback will soon be throwing.

We’re just being extra cautious. It’s not expected to be anything serious.

Considered the organization’s most precious asset, Guerrero is hitting a blistering .407 for the Fisher Cats to lead the Eastern League.

He was hurt last weekend, but DH’d on Tuesday and then singled in New Hampshire’s game Wednesday, but he limped to first base and was removed after advancing to second.

The injury at least temporarily slows Guerrero’s almost sure promotion to Triple-A Buffalo Cheap Jerseys Mall or even, as some have lobbied, the majors.

In a statement posted to his official website, Owens explained his decision not to attend the event.

While I am incredibly appreciative of this opportunity, I have made the Cheap Jerseys Mastercard decision to publicly decline my invitation to attend the induction ceremony in Canton, he said. I have already shared this information with the Hall. After visiting Canton earlier this year, I came to the realization that I wish to celebrate what will be one of the most memorable days of my life, elsewhere. At a later date, I will announce where and when I will celebrate my induction.

Packers fan’s lawsuit against Bears gets the go-ahead

Packers fan’s lawsuit against Bears gets the go-ahead More Green Bay Packers beat reporter Aaron Nagler says that although Aaron Rodgers may be frustrated in Green Bay, everyone will forget about this episode once the season starts.

Russell Beckman is a Green Bay Packers fan from way back. He’s a Chicago Bears season ticket holder, too. Oil and water. Beckman, a teacher, sued the Bears in U.S. District Court in Chicago because they wouldn’t let him on the sidelines wearing Packers gear during a promotional event with other season ticket holders before a game in 2016. The lawsuit, which a federal judge decided can proceed, might be an annoyance to the Bears, but Beckman said it could have wider-ranging implications. First, the background.

With a mainstay at safety like Patrick Chung, you would have thought the Patriots had it made at the position, but they’ve used three early-round picks trying to upgrade the situation, including eventual Lions starter Tavon Wilson in 2012. Aside from a strong 3-cone time, which you may have noticed is a trend among all positions, it has been a varied group athletically.

Wake Forest’s Jessie Bates or Stanford’s Justin Reid are options in the early rounds, if the team is looking for a versatile player who may be able to take over for Glover Quin in the coming years. With no hard and fast trends, the Lions could really go anywhere, even taking someone like former Ohio State safety and Detroit native Damon Webb.

Nyheim Hines NC State 5-9, 198, 40 time: 4.38 Projection: Fourth Round OVERVIEW Only the unfamiliar were surprised when Hines turned in a blistering 4.38 40-yard dash to lead all running backs at the NFL Scouting Combine. He was a two-sport star in high school who chose NC State in part because his twin sister, Nyah, received a track and field scholarship. Nyheim’s track background was evident as a true freshman, when he produced a combined 1,419 all-purpose yards — 243 rushing, 256 receiving and 920 as a kick returner.

He followed that up by competing in sprint events and earning All-American and All-ACC honors. Hines played mostly the slot receiver position as a sophomore, catching 42 passes Cheap NFL Jerseys USA for 525 yards, but did not reach the end zone. He moved to the backfield as a junior, rushing for 1,113 yards and 12 touchdowns despite a midseason ankle injury, and won the Paul Hornung Award as the nation’s top all-purpose back as well as first-team all-conference honors as a running back. Hines also finished his career with a 24.7-yard Bing Cheap Jerseys average on 88 kickoff returns, and opted to forgo his senior season for the NFL draft.

It’s tough to explain as far as exactly what we’re looking to be because we’ve changed a lot of our personnel and every week is so different.

You’re playing all of these different styles of teams and you have to be able to morph into what you need to do to win that game.

If that sounds eerily similar to Bill Belichick’s opponent-specific approach, it’s no coincidence. Gase’s football philosophy has been influenced by his dynastic AFC East rival.

The beginning of my career was [Alabama coach] Nick Saban, Gase explained. I think Mike Martz had a big impact on me. Then you look at, I think, Josh McDaniels had a big impact on me. And two of those guys are from that tree. That has allowed me to kind of learn from their experiences.

When Mike Pouncey gets released, that’s not easy to go through. It’s horrible. That’s somebody that this organization has been with for a long period of time…. All he’s been trying to do is help this organization win. He’s given everything he has to it. And when that time comes and we wend up doing that, that’s a brutal phone call to have to make and have that conversation.

2. If free-agent quarterback Jay Cutler resumes his 2017 plans to enter the broadcast booth, Gase expects his formal pupil to pull no punches:

The Giants are trying to rebuild there with new left tackle Nate Solder and guard Patrick Omameh, and giving restricted free agent center Brett Jones the second-round tender means they intend to keep him.

But with Weston Richburg signing a huge deal with the 49ers and Justin Pugh visiting the Cardinals today, the race is on for the linemen from last year to find jobs.

The statement denied any wrongdoing on Beckham’s part and said he will challenge all claims because it amounts to a shakedown attempt.

This is a clearly frivolous lawsuit, the statement reads. We’ll see him in court.

One area where Beckham and Temple appear to agree is that Beckham did not participate in any alleged beating or fight.

Even though Mr. Temple agrees that Mr. Beckham was in no way involved in the Really Cheap Jerseys physical altercation, neither as a participate or as an instigator, he nevertheless demanded money from Mr. Beckham and has now filed a meritless suit against him, the statement Super Cheap Jerseys China read.

Odell Beckham to Rams Giants’ stance: ‘You don’t quit on talent’… but not ruling out trade

Could Odell Beckham Jr.’s offseason home near Hollywood become his permanent residence

The Los Angeles Rams have inquired about trading for the Giants star, as first reported by the Daily News and confirmed by other outlets. Other NFL teams are sure to pick up the phone as well after Giants co-owner John Mara declared no players on the roster untouchable.

But Giants general manager Dave Gettleman skirted or declined to answer specific Beckham trade and holdout questions it at the NFL Annual Meeting. He started his press briefing Tuesday at the NFL Annual Meeting by reading a statement.

You don’t quit on talent, Gettleman said in his most revealing answer.

When pressed by a reporter to publicly commit to Beckham as a long-term Giant, Gettleman kept repeating He is on our team. He praised Beckham for working his fanny off.

Gettleman said he has not talked to Beckham about the seven-second video that showed Beckham in bed with what looked like drugs.

I haven’t had the opportunity, Gettleman said.

The lack of communication could be interpreted as a freeze-out or a bad sign from Gettleman and Giants co-owner John Mara. Coach Pat Shurmur met with Beckham in Los Angeles.

NFL tampering rules prohibit teams from talking about players on other teams, but Cheap Raider Jerseys Rams coach Sean McVay faced questions about Beckham and hypothetical trades for top wide receiver talent.

I think if there is one thing that you can appreciate about what we’ve done this offseason and the way we look at our organization, McVay said, (it) is there’s no trade we wouldn’t explore if we feel it can upgrade us as a team.

It’s what we expected, manager Alex Cora said. We know how special they can be.

Hanley Ramirez and Mookie Betts each hit his first home run of the season for the Red Sox, who doubled their season total. They scored 10 runs in their first four games but are 4-1 because they’ve allowed only 12 runs.

The stingy pitching has come with three starters on the disabled list, including Cheap San Francisco Giants Jerseys Drew Pomeranz, a 17-game winner in 2017.

They ranked ninth in yards per attempt and 12th in rushing offense by Football Outsiders’ metrics.

While hopping around Twitter on playoff Sunday, I managed to see some Blair Witch-quality video of Chad Johnson working with Antonio Brown. The Steelers’ star wideout looks quick. I pronounce him healthy. Not only should Brown be ready to go, but he should be ready to hear his name called on “NFL Honors” night. Despite missing the last couple of games, Brown is as deserving of the MVP as any other player. No one has been better at any given position than Brown has at wideout over the last five seasons. By the way, Johnson can still move. He’s got quicker feet than Timberlake, Gosling or any Jags receiver. And to think, he just turned 40.

Nagy was named head coach to replace John Fox quickly after the team whose offense he used to coordinate, the Chiefs, exited early from the playoffs. Chicago is doing its best to keep Fangio in place for 2018. Helfrich, the former Oregon head coach, was an immediate splashy hire. He’ll be good for Mitchell Trubisky.

One game is over, another game just ended. So you just roll with it. That will be fun. I hope people have a smile on their face and say, ‘You know, we enjoyed a lot of years with family watching this show.’ We won’t disappoint. We’re so up for it. I’ll have to pinch myself when I’m sitting there Cheap European Soccer Jerseys with [Tom] doing ‘NFL Primetime.’ Maybe we bring the old music out. What more could you ask for if you’re me?

Fournette might’ve eclipsed the 1,000-yard mark, but he also averaged 3.9 yards per carry. He ranked 20th among running backs in Pro Football Focus’ elusive rating, which measures missed Cheap Full Dye Softball Jerseys tackles. The offensive line placed 13th in run blocking, per Football Outsiders.

We figured we’d use a couple of West Coast guys: Keyshawn [Johnson] and Herm Edwards. [Herm] moved in for Tom the one year I wasn’t with Tom. Then Herm become coach of Arizona State… I was just going to do it with Keyshawn. Fine. I’ll give Seth Markman [ESPN’s senior coordinating producer for NFL & MLB studio coverage] the credit. He said let me make one call. He didn’t tell me. So this has only been in the works since the week after Herm took the job… With Tommy, this is our show. Hopefully we don’t screw it up…

Ezekiel Elliott suspension reinstated after judge denies motion

The Cowboys will not have Ezekiel Elliott for the next six weeks.

The legal battle continued with Monday’s injunction hearing that lasted for more than two hours. The court battle might not be over with Monday’s decision as Elliott’s legal team will likely pursue another appeal, with the next step a likely appeal within the next 24 hours.

The 37-year-old Peppers, who is in his 16th NFL season, became the fifth Cheap Kids NHL Jerseys player since 1982 to record 150 sacks on Oct. 12. Peppers got around Eagles tackle Halapoulivaati Vaitai to get to Carson Wentz and jar the ball loose on the opening series of the game.

Pouncey didn’t want to swing at Robinson but felt there was “no turning back” after the Lions came at him.

“I don’t even play dirty like that, but once someone does some cheap s— like that, that’s some bulls—. I can’t respect a man like that,” Pouncey said. “Knowing we’re just about to snap the ball and stand there and you want to fire off? That’s player safety. It’s a general, common thing. What if I just fired off the ball and cut him?”

After a 25-20 loss to the Atlanta Falcons on Sunday stretched the Jets’ losing skid to three, one of their most respected players, Matt Forte, questioned the playcalling at rain-soaked Cheap Kids Baseball Jerseys MetLife Stadium.

Jason Witten passed Michael Irvin to become the Cowboys all-time leader in receiving yards.

Irvin finished his career with 11,904 yards. Witten, who caught seven passes for 59 yards and a touchdown in a win over the Giants, now has 11,947 career receiving yards.

Jaguars’ Leonard Fournette rushed for 100 yards and a touchdown in the Jaguars’ 29-7 win over the Texans, becoming the first rookie in team history to hit 100 yards in his debut.

Josey Jewell, LB, Iowa: One of the reasons the Wyoming offense couldn’t get on track was the play of Jewell. The 6-2, 236-pound linebacker was all over the field with a game-high 14 tackles, including 2 1/2 for loss and a pair of sacks.

Ronald Jones, RB, USC: While Darnold was not sharp, the Trojans avoided the upset thanks to Jones. The 6-foot, 200-pound junior, who ran for 1,082 yards and 12 scores last season, racked up 159 yards and three on 18 carries Saturday against the Broncos. His second touchdown with 6:57 remaining broke a 28-28 tie.

Lamar Jackson, QB, Louisville: The reigning Heisman Trophy winner shook off an early fumble to explode for 378 passing yards and 107 rushing yards in a 35-28 win over Purdue in Indianapolis. Jackson made some superb throws, fitting the ball into some tight windows, while going 30 for 46 with two touchdowns.

An iso-camera will follow his every step on the sideline, Cris Collinsworth will comment when Beckham paces past the kicking net, and Tony Dungy and Rodney Harrison will debate whether Beckham is an overall net-positive for the Giants, and how Ben McAdoo should ‘handle’ the flamboyant receiver. Beckham Cheap NFL Jerseys Paypal moves the dial as proficiently as he moves the sticks, and rightsholders discuss how they will Cheap Paintball Jerseys cover him in their pregame meetings much like opposing defenses.

Those players are fine but aren’t good enough to be considered movable assets.

As good of a fit as Anthony might be alongside Paul George and Russell Westbrook, a trade with the Thunder makes no sense for the Knicks. The Thunder’s cupboards are scarce with their lack of assets right now, and that’s what the Knicks will be looking for in return for Anthony.

It’s clear Anthony doesn’t want to be there anymore and is open to waiving his no-trade clause for the right situation, so the Knicks do lose some leverage there. But is it enough for them to take back Jerami Grant, Doug McDermott or Alex Abrines in a trade? Probably not.

Those players are fine but aren’t good enough to be considered movable assets. The players who could be considered valuable trade pieces are ones the Thunder can’t consider moving.

Andre Roberson just signed a new deal, so he isn’t eligible to be traded until Dec. 15. Steven Adams is too integral to what the Thunder do defensively for him to be moved. Enes Kanter is a fine player and probably a movable asset, but he’ll cost New York a ton for years to come and isn’t always playable.

Plus, the Thunder already have draft picks for 2018 and 2020 committed elsewhere. Per the Stepien rule, they aren’t eligible to trade another first-round pick until 2022.

Two days into 2017 NBA Free Agency, a few big names have been accounted for.

The Timberwolves finally traded Ricky Rubio, moving him to the Jazz then replacing him on the market with Jeff Teague. The Pelicans made Jrue Holiday one of the league’s higher-paid players, inking him to a five-year, $125 million deal. Paul George, who wasn’t a free agent but might as well have been, got traded to Cheap Jerseys Promo Code the Thunder to join Russell Westbrook; Blake Griffin signed a 5-year max to stay in Cheap Jerseys PlUS Los Angeles, and Stephen Curry signed the first-ever supermax deal worth five years, $201 million.

Red Wings’ Gustav Nyquist given six-game suspension for high stick

Red Wings forward Gustav Nyquist has been suspended six games for a high stick to the face of Wild defenseman Jared Spurgeon.

The NHL’s Department of Player Safety announced its decision Wednesday, citing the “dangerous” and “retaliatory” nature of the incident for the length of the ban.

Nyquist had been offered an in-person hearing, allowing the league to suspend him for six or more games. He opted instead for a phone hearing Wednesday morning.

The play occurred at the 14:13 mark of the first period in Sunday’s 6-3 Wild win when Nyquist was involved in a scrum along the side boards. Spurgeon skated up from behind and knocked Nyquist to the ice with a cross-check to the back. Nyquist then appeared to deliberately use his stick to retaliate, striking Spurgeon violently across the upper lip and cheek, drawing blood.

The Islanders currently play at Barclays’ Center, but Brooklyn Sports & Entertainment, which manages the arena, is expected to terminate the team’s lease. The 2018-19 season could be the Isles’ last in Brooklyn.

NHL rules allow the owner of one team to have a stake in another, so there’s no cross-ownership issue preventing Dolan from being part of the investor group.

New York Governor Andrew Cuomo is involved in the arena talks Wholesale NFL Jerseys Supply and is looking to improve infrastructure around the proposed site, Bloomberg notes.

At least two other markets covet the Islanders. Dannel Malloy, the governor of Cheap MLB Jerseys Connecticut, wrote a letter to the team’s owners earlier this month making a case for his state as the team’s home, and some Long Island politicians want the Isles to return to their original home. Also, the Islanders were in discussions with the Mets about building an arena near Citi Field.

But the focus is now on the site in Elmont, N.Y., near Belmont Park, according to Bloomberg. The site is controlled by the New York Racing Association.

Vanek led the Red Wings in goals (15) and was one of the more coveted rental players on the market.

Talented forwards Taylor Leier, Oskar Lindblom and Michael Vecchione are also vying for spots on the opening-night roster and the Flyers D-corps will likely feature four players age 24 and under.

Shayne Gostisbehere, who signed a six-year, $27 million extension, has the highest profile of the young defensemen. Behind him is 20-year-old Ivan Provorov, who is coming off a rock-solid 30-point rookie season.

Robert Hagg, 22, and Travis Sanheim, 21, are also set to join the back end full-time, while Samuel Morin is close to making the jump from the AHL.

The clock is ticking for Iginla, a future Hall of Famer and one of hockey’s all-around nice guys, to win his first Cup. First the 39-year-old will have to find a way to get the Kings into the playoffs as they were one point out of a wild card spot Wednesday. It’s clear GM Dean Lombardi believes the Kings’ best hockey lies ahead a la 2012 when they sneaked into the playoffs as a No. 8 seed and won a championship. Los Angeles made its big splash Sunday, acquiring goalie Ben Bishop from Tampa Bay as insurance to get there.

Vanek led the Red Wings in goals (15) and was one of the more coveted rental players on the market. He can settle in nicely on the Panthers’ third line alongside Jonathan Marchessault and Nick Bjugstad as one of the NHL’s hottest teams makes a playoff push. Florida is Vanek’s sixth different team since the start of the 2013-14 season.

The Senators were frantically shopping Lazar, the 17th overall draft pick in 2013 who will be a Cheap Liverpool Soccer Jerseys restricted free agent this summer. Ottawa GM Pierre Dorion was reportedly Cheap Jerseys Online holding out for a first-round pick, but settled with an hour to go before the deadline. Lazar is having a rough season, with only one point in 33 NHL games, but gets a fresh start with the Cheap Michael Jordan Jerseys For Sale playoff-bound Flames.
