GREEN BAY, Wis. Chris Wormley Ravens Jersey . -- The Packers offense has changed a little from the last time center Corey Linsley snapped a football to Aaron Rodgers.More passing. Less running.It is in large part by necessity as the Packers adjust their plans following the spate of injuries that have sapped depth at the running back position.It looks different and we operate a little bit different. But its the same stuff that weve been going through, Linsley said Wednesday. Although ... for us, as O-linemen, its adjusting to passing as much.Linsley, the starting center the previous two years, hasnt played this season because of a hamstring injury. But he could be activated from the reserve/physically unable to perform list for Sundays game against the Indianapolis Colts because of a knee injury to Linsleys replacement, JC Tretter.Yeah, if that happens, obviously were going to have to get resituated there. Im not worried about Corey, though. Corey has been a center his entire life, Rodgers said.Still, it will be yet another personnel change to which the Packers will have to adjust because of their lengthy injury report.At running back, Eddie Lacy (ankle) is on injured reserve. James Starks is coming back from a knee injury, but did not practice on Wednesday.Receivers Randall Cobb (hamstring) and Ty Montgomery (illness) were both limited after missing last weeks loss to Atlanta . Cobb and Montgomery can also take snaps in the backfield, a role that Montgomery especially had excelled in this season .Green Bay also has running back Don Jackson, elevated from the practice squad a few weeks ago; and fullback Aaron Ripkowski, who had an impressive 34 yards on six carries against the Falcons.At Atlanta, Rodgers was the leading rusher with 60 yards on six carries.Im deceptively fast. Thats what I like about it, Rodgers joked.But hes usually not making keeper calls. If Rodgers is on the move, it is usually because hes trying to extend plays.Its been a good weapon for us on third down (at) times. But again, its a secondary thing. Extending plays ... where Im hitting guys on late-timing stuff and second-reaction stuff. Those are tough for the defense to stop, Rodgers said.Against Atlanta, the Packers used spread looks at times by necessity. Rodgers was 28 of 38 for 246 yards and four touchdowns in one of his best outings of the year .In the 26-10 win over Chicago the previous week, Rodgers was 39 of 56, setting a franchise mark for completions in a game. He threw for 326 yards and three scores.The offensive line, for the most part, has played well. But it looks the Packers may have to prepare for a change there, too, because of an injury.Linsley has come full-circle after taking over as the center as a rookie in 2014 after Tretter went down with a knee injury. When Linsley got hurt this preseason, Tretter was ready to step in.Now, it looks like Linsley will be snapping the ball again. The Packers have an open spot on their active roster following the release of running back Knile Davis earlier this week.On Wednesday, Rodgers ran Linsley through the cadences and adjustments that have been made on offense.Everything that he can possibly throw at me, he threw at me, Linsley said. Im thankful for that.INJURY REPORTThe cornerback carousel continued on defense. Quinten Rollins returned to practice for the first time since missing three games with a groin injury. He was limited. But Demetri Goodson missed practice with a concussion. Starting cornerback Damarious Randall remains out with a groin injury. ... LB Clay Matthews (hamstring) was limited after missing the Falcons game.TRANSACTIONRB Brandon Burks was signed to the practice squad. The 5-foot-9 rookie initially signed with the Packers as an undrafted free agent from Troy in May before being released after training camp.---AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and http://twitter.com/AP-NFL---Follow Genaro Armas at: https://twitter.com/GArmasAP Chris Wormley Jersey .C. -- Al Jefferson joked that he feels he can score from anywhere on the court. Tim Williams Jersey .com) - The Chicago Blackhawks aim for their third three-game winning streak of the season when they host the struggling Edmonton Oilers in Sundays battle at the United Center. http://www.ravensauthoritystore.com/Authentic-Nico-Siragusa-Ravens-Jersey/ . Canada is now down to its 22-player limit, although but players wont be registered until Christmas Day. Changes could still be made as a result of a suspension or injury. England ended their decade-long wait for victory over South Africa with a resounding 37-21 victory at Twickenham that extends their triumphant run to 11 Tests.After 11 defeats and a draw in their previous 12 meetings dating back to 2006, Eddie Jones men put the Springboks to the sword through tries from Jonny May, Courtney Lawes, George Ford and Owen Farrell.May marked the conclusion of his injury-enforced spell in the international wilderness by finishing a slick score originating from a line-out, while Lawes celebrated his 50th cap by using his athleticism to complete an opportunistic counter-attack.Elliot Dalys full debut at outside centre mixed good with bad after the Wasps man initiated the move that led to Lawes crossing and landing a long-range penalty, but he was also thrown around on occasion.Head coach Eddie Jones branded South Africa bullies in the build up to this Old Mutual Wealth Series opener and described their rugby philosophy as chess with steroids, but these Springboks are a poor team who finished the match a disorganised mess.The rope-a-dope tactics Jones had said would be required to absorb the pressure from the tourists big ball carriers were only necessary for half an hour, by which point England were in full control. It was an ugly spectacle at times but the Grand Slam champions, who have amassed nine wins under Jones, were able to bring Twickenham to its feet with flashes of brilliance, among them two dummies from scrum-half Ben Youngs.Indiscipline resulted in England making a poor start as they conceded three penalties inside the opening five minutes alone, enabling South Africa to take a 6-0 lead through Pat Lambies boot.An attacking line-out provided them with the platform to hit back, however, with Marland Yarde roaming infield to create an overlap before combining with Mike Brown to send May racing over in the left corner. It was a slick response from England given tthe damp conditions, but for the second time in the opening quarter they allowed South Africa to surge through the middle of the ruck with Vincent Koch rampaging in the footsteps of Tendai Mtawarira before him. Nico Siragusa Womens Jersey. Combined with a scrum that came apart at the seams, the Grand Slam champions were coming under sustained pressure and Lambie was able to land another three points.A bulldozing run from Billy Vunipola generated momentum and with South Africa producing two poor kicks, England were able to spend a significant spell in the opposition 22 until Ford sent a drop-goal wide.Now there was conviction about their play as Ben Youngs made a forceful break that established field position under the posts and in the process a head on head collision between Billy Vunipola and Eben Etzebeth ended the giant Springbok locks afternoon.A collapsed scrum allowed Farrell to land a penalty and the lead was extended to 17-9 following a sharp counter-attack that started on the 22 with Daly kicking into space and May and Brown hacking on before Lawes arrived to touch down.Daly landed a monster penalty from close to the halfway line to create more daylight between the rivals and with half an hour remaining the outcome was beyond doubt.Youngs was almost at a stroll as he exploited a gap at the breakdown, easily duping flanker Pieter-Steph du Toit with a dummy before supplying Ford with the scoring pass for their third try.After a period of meandering, England were stung by seeing Johan Goosen link with Willem Alberts for the Springboks first try and touched down for a fourth time with Youngs selling another dummy with Farrell on hand to finish on this occasion.South Africa had the final say when Willie le Roux dotted down in the corner, but the contest had long since been decided. Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '

I cant pinpoint a date, but I do remember a player from my youth. Brian Downing was with the Chicago White Sox at a time when I listened to every game I possibly could on the radio. That particular season the late great Harry Caray was calling the White Sox games. http://www.nbanetsproshop.com/womens-timofey-mozgov-basketball-jersey/ . Tevez, who has had conflicts with coaches in the past, has not been called up since Sabella was named coach in 2011. Argentina boasts Lionel Messi, Gonzalo Higuain, Sergio Aguero, Ezequiel Lavezzi and Angel Di Maria. Texas coach Charlie Strong said following the Longhorns 31-9,?season-ending loss to TCU on Friday night that he expects to meet with school athletic officials Saturday.The Longhorns (5-7, 3-6) finished with their third consecutive losing season under Strong, who is 16-21 in three seasons at the school and 12-15 in Big 12 Conference play.At his postgame news conference, Strong was asked if his Longhorns tenure is over.Ive not been told, he said. I just told our players that I look forward to coming back and make sure we get this thing on track.Strong made a nearly four-minute-long statement to open his news conference Friday night, urging his players never to quit on themselves and expressing frustration about the pressure theyve endured the past two seasons while he has been on the hot seat.I just felt like every year it turned into being all about me, and it should never have been all about me, Strong said. It should have been about those guys being given an opportunity to enjoy the game. It never happened for them. They felt it. Thats whats so disappointing, is they felt they had to defend me at every turn.DOnta Foreman, the nations leading rusher, was in tears as he walked off the field at DKR-Texas Memorial Stadium on Friday night. He said Strong has meant a lot to him and that seeing his coach go through this really hurts me.Ive invested so much into this program, so much into the team, and to come up short like that and for him to have to go through the stuff hes going through is very emotional, Foreman said. Hes a great guy, and he doesnt deserve it, honestly.When Strong was asked how he would want fans to remember his legacyy at Texas, the coach said he hopes to not be judged solely on wins and losses. DAngelo Russell Swingman Jersey. I know thats the way we are all judged, Strong said, but its also about the impact that you make on young peoples lives.Strong said he intends to point out Texas potential to win big in 2017 when he meets with university president Greg Fenves and athletic director Mike Perrin. It was something Strong stressed during Mondays news conference when he defended the programs progress in his three seasons.I was told three years ago, when I came in here, to build a program, Strong said. Just look at the positives, look at where we are with this football team, how young we are. The wins and losses, they dont add up. But still, its more than just that. Its all about the total development, taking the program and moving it in the right direction.If Strong is fired, Texas is expected to pursue Houston coach Tom Herman.?LSU also had zeroed in on Herman, but the Tigers have removed the interim tag from Ed Orgeron and have hired him as their new coach, sources confirmed to ESPN on Saturday.?Texas players, meanwhile, rallied behind Strong on Monday and expressed hope that a win over TCU would secure Strongs job for another year.

The Wallabies will face France with a starting lineup which barely resembles their opening Spring Tour fixtures, with coach Michael Cheika making 11 changes while handing Kyle Godwin a Test debut. Takkarist McKinley Falcons Jersey .Only flanker David Pocock, who moves to his preferred openside flanker role, halfback Will Genia, winger Henry Speight and centre Tevita Kuridrani have been retained from the starting XV which sealed a late 23-22 win over Scotland last week.But far from swinging the axe following a lucky escape, Cheika has chosen the new-look lineup to give his weary starters a rest ahead of the key grand slam clashes with Ireland and England - while also handing fringe squad members a chance to press their case.All five Wallabies to have started all 12 Tests this year - captain Stephen Moore, vice-captain Michael Hooper, Israel Folau, Bernard Foley and Dane Haylett-Petty - have all been relieved of their starting duties while prop Sekope Kepu, who came off the bench once, has also been given a rest.In Folaus absence, Luke Morahan is given a chance to shine at fullback - while the highly rated Godwin will make his first appearance for Australia.Ive been impressed with him from day one, Cheika said.Hes a player (France) wont know either so its something different for them to look at.Australias first-choice No.9, Genia, retains his place ahead of Nick Phipps after returning to the starting lineup last week following his release from French club Stade Francaise for the international window.Genia will get a chance to play in front of his adopted home fans at Stade de France on Saturday, and will rekindle his partnership with the enigmatic, but experienced, Quade Cooper who returns at five-eighth.Pocock headlines an exciting backrow made up of World Cup favourite Scott Fardy and rising talent Sean McMahon, who returns from an ankle injury suffered in Pretoria six weeks ago.The Wallabies will also test out an inexperienced front-row, with hooker Tolu Latu making his first start after debuting against Wales a fortnight ago, while rookie prop Allan Alaalatoa will partner veteran James Slipper.But Cheika insists there are no token selections among the team.You dont give away a starting jersey for Australia lightly, he said of the new front row.Weve said that we want to give lads experience and Allan hasnt started or been in this type of firestorm before.I wanted to try to get a blend of (youth and experience). I dont just want to go, here you go young guys, have a game.I want to give them the opportunity to play with experienced players.Team: Luke Morahan; Sefanaia Naivalu, Tevita Kuridrani, Kyle Godwin, Henry Speight; Quade Cooper, Will Genia; Sean McMahon, David Pocock, Scott Fardy; Rob Simmons, Kane Douglas, Allan Alaalatoa, Tolu Latu, James Slipper.

Sebnem Kimyacioglu is a member of the Turkish national womens basketball team. Born in the United States, Kimyacioglu has dual citizenship. A shooting guard at Stanford in 2001-05, Kimyacioglu has played internationally for much of the past decade as well as earning her law degree from Santa Clara University.Kimyacioglu and her Turkish teammates open the 2016 Summer Olympics tournament on Saturday against France, the 2012 silver medalists. Kimyacioglu talks about her teams ups and downs related to the recent tragedies in Turkey following its qualification for Rio.***After I graduated from Stanford in 2005, I went overseas to play basketball in the Turkish and European leagues and I played there for three years before I hung up my sneakers and returned to the United States to go to law school. I graduated from Santa Clara School of Law, took the California bar exam and I really didnt think Id be playing basketball competitively again.But my Stanford teammate Kristen Newlin and her husband, who coaches basketball in Turkey, were visiting me and we were playing in a pickup game with my law school teammates and he asked me, Have you thought about playing again?He encouraged me to go to a club tryout in Turkey. Nobody believed I was in basketball shape -- I didnt believe I was in basketball shape -- but I figured I was going to make the most of the opportunity and trained my heart out while simultaneously studying for the bar exam. I made the Galatasaray roster. The previous year, basketball stars Diana Taurasi and Tina Charles were on this team. That year, it was Lindsay Whalen and Sylvia Fowles fresh off of a gold medal at the London Olympics. For me, it was exciting to maybe play on a team that would contend for a Euroleague title, and I didnt expect that I would get a minute of play.I carved out a role as the intangibles player on the team. I would do whatever was needed of me, be that cheering my butt off for 40 minutes or D-ing up the best wing player on the opposing team. My contributions were not going to be on the stat sheet, but I was also prepared to take big shots if that was required of me. That requirement came in the biggest game of my life up to that point, the 2014 Euroleague championship. I subbed into the game and hit a couple of critical 3s to seal the victory. I was dubbed the hero of the game by FIBA. For me, it was what dreams were made of.I played there again in 2015, but honestly, I thought that Id achieved all I could, and I was already researching jobs back in the States in sports law, doing some networking. Id worked for a couple of months at a firm in Santa Barbara in the offseason. It was building toward my career. With all of this going on, I got a job offer to play two months for a team in Northern Cyprus. It intrigued me because Northern Cyprus is a conflict zone. Its split in two -- Cypriot Greeks on one side and Cypriot Turks on the other. I had attended a Sports for Good camp there the previous summer where they brought the two sides together and I thought that was something I would want to be a part of because it dovetailed into the kind of work I wanted to do.Honestly, I had no idea that would lead to my being called up to be a part of the Turkish national team. My coach from my Euroleague championship team, who became the national team coach in May of that year, asked me what I thought about being on the Olympic hopeful roster.I just felt like the stars were aligning for me to keep playing for a little while longer. At that point, Id been in and out of the game for more than 10 years, Id left basketball twice, but I had this chance to be on the Turkish national team and I couldnt say no. And then we qualified for the Olympics on June 17 in France with a top-five finish, the second time Turkey has competed in the Olympics in womens basketball. The whole thing is unbelievable because if you had asked me how my life would pan out in this stretch 10 years ago, I could never have thought this up.June 28, 2016We were about to reconvene for our month-long pre-Olympic camp when the terrorist bombing took place at the airport in Istanbul. It deeply affected me. It felt very personal because that is someplace that I fly into and out of all the time.I never would consider it a place to avoid. These days you think about the attacks in popular places and think, Maybe I wont go there. Ill go someplace else instead. But an airport, you cant really avoid going there. And that made it really personal for me.I flew into Istanbul two days after the attack. The remnants of the attack were there as soon as I got off the plane. The ceiling tiles were gone in the terminal and crews were out doing repairs to the floors and the ceilings. As I was exiting the international baggage claim area, there were large areas tarped off where they were working.It was a very strange feeling to think about the fact that just two days before that, people were running for their lives in that same area.Our team has handled all of thiss pretty well. Cole Hamels Rangers Jersey. Our manager and staff are pretty sensitive to that. We enter the airport through VIP areas as we travel. I know the hope is that we can just focus on basketball and the Olympic tournament. We appreciate these efforts, and I believe they have helped us. We are proud of having the hopes of a nation attached to us, but at the very least, we also want to make proud those whose efforts helped us get to this point.I was born in the United States, but I spent every summer in Turkey growing up. My parents live in Turkey. Im fluent in the language. Since I graduated from college, Ive lived in Turkey for a total of six years. I love it, and Im hopeful for it.July 15, 2016Wed been in training camp for the Olympics in Slovenia for the past 10 days, and we had only a couple of days left before we were going to return to Istanbul.I was on FaceTime with some family members in the hotel when I heard people running back and forth in the hallway. I went out into the hall and asked one of my teammates what was happening and she said, I dont know.I started to hear that people thought a military coup was happening in Turkey. I walked over to our treatment room, which is the place where players always convene. Its a big room, with four or five treatment tables and everyone was in there, sitting on the tables and on the floor with their iPads turned on, streaming live TV.At that point, all we could see was that people werent sure what was going on. The bridge in Istanbul was blocked. People were questioning whether this was a terrorist attack or something else. It was all just developing, and it was hard to figure out exactly what was happening. Our staff got a projection of live TV in our meeting room, and we all moved in there to watch as things unfolded.The room was eerily silent. People were quietly digesting, thinking about the things and the people that were important to them and what this could mean. I didnt want to freak out my family and friends, so I was texting them to let them know I was fine.My dad is in Turkey. My mother is in the States because my sister just had a baby.I was on the phone with my father and he was trying to comfort me, telling me everything was going to be fine. And I just kept thinking, I dont know about that.At one point, some of my teammates got up and went to the nearest ATMs to get some cash, because once we thought it might be a coup. We were afraid everything was going to shut down. We would find out later that a neighbor of one of my teammates was killed making his way home from work that night.From our hotel, we saw on state television, one woman was held hostage at the television station and read a note the coup was successful. I had a sinking feeling in my stomach.It was scary. We didnt know whether we were going to be able to go back to Turkey at that point, whether any of our future plans were going to be a reality, including the Olympics.July 16, 2016It was past midnight when we left the team meeting room in the hotel in Slovenia and went to bed. It was becoming clear that the coup wasnt going to be successful. There have been previous coups in Turkey and there had always been a contingent of citizens supporting the military and that wasnt the case here. All of Turkey stood up for democracy. People from opposing parties, with different ideologies, all rejected the attempt to intervene with Turkeys democratically elected government. It was an important moment in history for the nation.When we returned to Istanbul two days later, the city was back to its usual, bustling self. We saw people celebrating in the streets every night that democracy won out. We saw it in front of the airport, people waving flags. I think its a sign of how far Turkey has come and the strength of the democracy we have here.July 30, 2016We are about to leave for the Olympics. Despite the excitement I feel, it has been a trying time. I think we all feel a heightened sense of responsibility to show that we are representing Turkey, that we are still on our feet, still standing tall. Our success as a team will not only be a sign that Turkey is a democratic nation where people of many races, nationalities and religions live together, but I believe it will be a glimmer of hope for the people of Turkey.We are proud of our country. There are a lot of Turkish people who have been living through some dark days and losses recently. Turkish people have a lot of pride, and we want to make them proud of us.I believe the story of whats happening in Turkey is worth telling. I dont want this moment or the feeling I have in my gut to pass without speaking about it. After the Olympics, the moment will have passed. In the meantime, hopefully, we will bring smiles to the faces of the people who see us walking in the opening ceremonies and representing them in the pinnacle of competition for sport. Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '

NEW YORK -- Philadelphias Ryan Howard and Washingtons Ryan Zimmerman have been cleared by Major League Baseball of allegations they used banned performance-enhancing substances. Brad Evans Seattle Sounders Jersey .Pharmacist Charlie Sly claimed in an Al-Jazeera America documentary The Dark Side: Secrets of Sports Doping, which was broadcast Dec. 27, that the two used banned performance-enhancing substances.In a brief statement Friday, MLB said its investigation did not find any violations of the Joint Drug Prevention and Treatment Program by either Howard or Zimmerman.MLB said the players cooperated with its investigation and Sly did not.Howard, a three-time All-Star, and Zimmerman, a one-time All-Star, denied the allegations and in January sued Al-Jazeera America, Al Jazeera reporter Deborah Davies and former hurdler Liam James Collins, who was said to have assisted in the documentarys reporting. The suits, filed in U.S. District Court in Washington, D.C., claimed defamation and false light invasion of privacy.The accusations from Al-Jazeera came out of nowhere, and I was shocked and outraged by their false claims, Howard said in a statement. I welcomed the investigation by Major League Baseball as an opportunity to clear my name. I was fully cooperative and transparent in the process, and MLBs findings validate what I have said publicly.Al Jazeera America at first claimed in a text report the two may have used human growth hormone, then changed the text report to the banned steroid Delta 2, conforming with the broadcast documentary. Sly, who worked as an intern at an anti-aging clinic, later recanted his claims.The three defendants asked the court too dismiss the suits. Stefan Frei Seattle Sounders Jersey. The parties in the Zimmerman suit last month asked U.S. District Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson to hold a hearing on the motion.I understand why Major League Baseball found it necessary to explore this matter, and I appreciate that MLB, after a thorough investigation, was able to publicly affirm my innocence, Zimmerman said in a statement.Throughout my life and career, I have been true to myself, my family, the Nationals organization and my community. It is not right that a so-called news organization and its personnel can publicly make false accusations that damage my reputation and call into question my integrity without any consequences whatsoever.Both players reiterated they would press forward with their defamation claims, filed in U.S. District CourtThe whole point of the lawsuit was to not allow people to basically smear your name without any evidence or without any proof, Zimmerman said before Friday nights game at Atlanta. So that will go on.Former major league catcher Taylor Teagarden, another player implicated in the Al-Jazeera report, was suspended for 80 games in April.The report also implicated NFL players Peyton Manning, Clay Matthews, Julius Peppers, James Harrison and Mike Neal. Manning, now retired, was cleared by the NFL after an investigation. The NFL is still investigating Matthews and Peppers, who play for Green Bay, Pittsburghs Harrison and Neal, a free agent.---AP freelance writer Amy Jinkner-Lloyd in Atlanta contributed to this report. Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '

CLEVELAND -- Barkevious Mingo couldnt catch his breath and didnt think much of it. Bruno Caboclo Raptors Jersey . Then, the rookie linebacker coughed up blood and realized he needed help. The Browns are thankful he asked for it. Mingo was released from the hospital Saturday after a two-night stay at The Cleveland Clinic because of a bruised lung. After watching his teammates practice, the first-round pick discussed his ordeal and the unusual injury he believes happened on the opening kickoff in Thursday nights exhibition win over Detroit. "Im perfectly fine and my ribs are perfect," an upbeat Mingo said, flashing his usual smile. "I had no pain and no bruising, which kind of surprised the doctors, as well. Honestly, if it wasnt for the shortness of breath I was having, I probably would have still been out there playing." Following his release from the hospital, Mingo went to the Browns training facility and visited with defensive co-ordinator Ray Horton and others at lunch. Later, he walked onto the practice field about 15 minutes into the workout and briefly met with Browns owner Jimmy Haslam and coach Rob Chudzinski. Mingo tried to downplay an injury that could have been worse. "When I couldnt catch my breath, I went to my coach, who sent me to the trainers," the No. 6 overall pick said. "They made the decision, which was the right one, to be extra cautious and send me to the hospital. I appreciate that, obviously, but Im fine. Im really fine." Mingo said nothing happened on the opening kickoff to make him think he was hurt. "I ran down and didnt feel right," he said. "I didnt feel like a hit was delivered that hard. I would think (a bruised lung) itd be serious, but I feel fine. They told me to take it easy for a couple days, and when the coaches and doctors tell me Im able to come back, Ill be out there." When he got to the hospital, Mingo said he was given precise instructions. He also coughed up blood after he was admitted. "They gave me a bed and a TV, and they said, Watch this and dont move, and youll be OK," he said. "All I have to do now is just rest up and let it heal." The former LSU standout likely will be kept out of practice for the next week, and its possible he will sit out Clevelands final two preseason games at Indianapolis (Aug. 24) and Chicago (Aug. 29). Horton isnt too worried about Mingo missing time. "For a young guy, he needs every rep he can get," Horton said. "He is very smart. He is on page. For us, its just reps. Its seeing a different look. Its seeing (Colts QB) Andrew Luck. Its seeing different fronts, what they have and how they want to block him. It will retard a little bit, but he is pretty gifted in what he does and he picks things up fast. How much? I cant give you a quantitative answer, but it will hurt him a little bit." Mingo played only on the kickoff-coverage and punt-return teams against the Lions. The 6-foot-4, 240-pound Mingo has been primarily playing special teams and with Clevelands second-string defence. However, Horton has been working the speedy Mingo into some of the Browns pass-rushing packages in order to use his ability to pressure the quarterback from the edge. Fortunately, the Browns have others who can fill in while Mingo recovers. "We have a lot of players at a lot of positions who can play for us," Horton said. "Depth is a key for us. We have quality players at a lot of quality positions. A lot of people use the mantra, Next man up. We believe in that philosophy that it doesnt matter who the starters are, it is give me 11 guys who want to go out and play and can play. "He is one of our 11, so will it hurt our team? Yeah, it will hurt our team because of our depth, but we will get him back soon and we will plug him right back in." Mingo was one of five Browns players to suffer a significant injury in the 24-6 win over the Lions. Running back Dion Lewis broke his left leg and is scheduled for surgery. Its not known how long Lewis will be sidelined, and Chudzinski said the team will wait until after the operation before deciding whether to put him on injured reserve. Lewis, acquired in a March trade from Philadelphia, has been a pleasant addition for the Browns, who were hoping to use him as a change-of-pace with starter Trent Richardson. Lewis injury will further test Clevelands depth in the backfield since Montario Hardesty is expected to miss at least one month after undergoing arthroscopic knee surgery Thursday. Starting right guard Jason Pinkston (high ankle sprain) left FirstEnergy Stadium in a walking boot and on crutches. Chudzinski said rookie Garrett Gilkey, a seventh-round pick, likely will move into the starting spot. Tight end Gary Barnidge (sprained shoulder) and rookie kicker Brandon Bogotay (groin) were also hurt in the preseason game but are not expected to be out long. Patrick Patterson Raptors Jersey . -- If Henry Burris has his way, he will be the starting quarterback to lead the Hamilton Tiger-Cats back to the Grey Cup next year. Raptors Hats .Y. - New Orleans forward Anthony Davis was chosen Friday to replace the injured Kobe Bryant in the NBA All-Star game that will be played in his home city. http://www.authenticraptorsauthority.com/lucas-nogueira-raptors-jersey-c-21/ . The No. 1-ranked Nadal tweaked his back warming up for the Australian Open final, which he lost almost four weeks ago in a major upset against Stanislas Wawrinka. His first stop after the layoff is the clay in Rio as he tests the back and tries to stay healthy for the French Open in three months. EDMONTON, Alberta -- Opposing players are starting to take note of what could finally be significant improvement from the Edmonton Oilers.Connor McDavid had a goal and an assist as the Oilers won their second straight game in a strong start to the season, defeating the St. Louis Blues 3-1 on Thursday night.They are not the Oilers of the last few years, Ill tell you that, Blues goalie Jake Allen said. They are a good hockey club and obviously made some good additions to their team.Tyler Pitlick and off-season free-agent signing Milan Lucic scored for Edmonton, which improved to 4-1-0 on the season.Starting 4-1, we couldnt ask for a better start, McDavid said. I think were feeling pretty good about ourselves, but I think its about keeping it on an even keel.Beating one of the best teams in the league was definitely a boost, according to Lucic.Its a huge win, he said. We talked about getting off to a good start, having a good first five games to get our team rolling and build some confidence before the Heritage Classic. It was great that we were able to play a really good game against a really good team.Nail Yakupov replied for the Blues (3-1-1) in his return to Edmonton since he was traded to St. Louis earlier this month.Blues coach Ken Hitchcock felt his team let one get away.Weve really wasted some great goaltending displays by Jake. Hes been outstanding and given us a chance to win both of these last two games, said Hitchcock, who watched his team lose 2-1 in overtime to Vancouver on Tuesday.Its unfortunate with the way he has been playing to only come out with one point from these last two games.There was no scoring in the first period, with the Blues getting 10 shots on Oilers goallie Cam Talbot and Edmonton directing eight shots on Allen. Kyle Lowry Raptors Jersey. .The Blues got on the board 3:37 into the second as a scramble allowed Joel Edmundson to feed it in front to Yakupov. It was the second goal of the season for the former Oiler.The Oilers pulled even three minutes later as Pitlick made a nifty deflection off a shot by Andrej Sekera while being knocked flying to score his third of the season.Edmonton made it 2-1 just 36 seconds into the third period as McDavid broke out of a two-game scoring drought by threading a pass through to Lucic in front. It was the big wings second goal of the year.Both goaltenders made big saves before the Blues came close to tying it up midway through the third. Yakupov had Talbot beat on a backhand shot, but hit the post.McDavid put the game away with his fourth goal of the season into an empty net.Tonight was a huge test for us, Talbot said. Any time you can beat a powerhouse like St. Louis, it goes a long way for the confidence in this group and moving forward thats what we need to have.Game notes It was the first of three meetings between the teams this season. . Yakupov spent four seasons with the Oilers, recording 111 points in 252 games. . Blues F Jaden Schwartz played his first game of the season after recovering from a hyperextended elbow. . Talbot made his fifth start of the season one day after his wife, Kelly, gave birth to twins.UP NEXT:Blues: Conclude a three-game road trip in Calgary on Saturday.Oilers: Are off until Sunday, when they play the Jets in the Heritage Classic outdoor game in Winnipeg. Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '

SPOKANE, Wash. -- Jordan Mathews missed a couple of shots early in No. 14 Gonzagas game against San Diego State.The guys said keep shooting, Mathews said.So he did.Mathews scored 17 points, going 5 of 7 on 3-pointers, and the Bulldogs beat San Diego State 69-48 while holding the Aztecs to 28 percent shooting Monday night.We executed our game plan, made them do what we wanted them to do, Mathews said.Zach Collins added 15 points and Nigel Williams-Goss 10 for Gonzaga (2-0) in the ESPN College Hoops Marathon game.Trey Kell and Jeremy Hemsley each had 14 points for San Diego State (1-1).The teams, which last played in 2010, have been among the most successful in the West in recent years. But on this night the Aztecs had trouble scoring, making only 16 of 56 shots and going long periods without a basket.Weve been working on that zone for a while, Mathews said about Gonzagas defense. It makes it really hard for anybody to score on us.Gonzaga won despite shooting just 39 percent.The defense was awesome, coach Mark Few said. They were flying around and anticipating, helping each other.Mathews is a graduate transfer from California who did not arrive on campus until September.On game night he raises his game up, Few said.San Diego State coach Steve Fisher thought the Aztecs hurt themselves.We lost our mental capacity to think at the offensive end, Fisher said.Everything we did was too fast, he added. It looked like we were trying to score 10 points in one possession, and you cant do that. We helped do ourselves in.The Aztecs made only five of their first 21 shots and fell behind 23-12.Mathews had a dunk and a 3-pointer during a 9-0 run to lift Gonzaga to a 344-17 lead. Rafinha Bayern Munich Jersey. Gonzaga led 36-21 at halftime after holding the Aztecs to 20 percent shooting. They did not have a field goal in the final 6:27 of the first.We played a team tonight that is just as good as any team in the country, Fisher said. So in order for us to hang tough, you have to be able to shoot better than 20 percent.After San Diego State got within 10, Mathews sank a trio of 3-pointers in the span of a couple of minutes to push Gonzagas lead to 45-29.The Zags followed that with a 16-0 run, getting three baskets from Collins, for a 61-31 lead.

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. -- Tennessee believes its passing game is good enough to complement an exceptional running game.Now its just a matter of proving it.We have to do a better job of catching the ball as an entire offensive unit and putting the ball where it needs to be as well, Tennessee coach Butch Jones said. I do see progress. Weve worked very hard on it all summer, and we worked hard on it in this stage of the game in training camp through five practices.Tennessee should be able to run the ball against just about anyone. Jalen Hurd, Alvin Kamara and quarterback Joshua Dobbs are all back after combining for 2,657 yards rushing and 30 touchdowns last season. But the Volunteers must pass effectively to keep defenses honest.Dobbs has 22 career starts to lead all active Southeastern Conference quarterbacks, and many of his receivers were highly touted recruits.But that hasnt translated to a consistently potent passing game. Tennessee ranked 64th among Football Bowl Subdivision teams last season in passing efficiency. Dobbs completed 59.6 percent of his passes, down from 63.3 percent in 2014.Dobbs said improving his accuracy has been a major point of emphasis as he prepares for his senior season.You look at statistics and everything, and a great completion percentage in the SEC is 65 percent and an extraordinary one is 70 percent, so thats what were aiming for, Dobbs said. Every ball you throw, you throw with a purpose. At the end of the day, you want to take care of the football and get the ball in the playmakers hands.First the Vols need to identify the playmakers on offense aside from Dobbs, Hurd and Kamara. The receiving corps still has plenty of questions after being decimated by injuries last season.Tennessees top returning wideout is junior Josh Malone, who caught 31 passes for 405 yards and two toucchdowns last season. Phil Jones Jersey. The Vols also return junior Josh Smith, who had 23 catches for 307 yards and two scores.The Vols ought to get more production from sophomores Preston Williams and Jauan Jennings. Williams, a former five-star recruit, wasnt declared eligible last year until late August and spent the rest of the season playing catchup. Jennings started six games at receiver last season even though the former high school quarterback was learning a new position.Jason Croom moved over from wide receiver to tight end and has seemed to adapt well to the switch. Croom, who redshirted last season with a knee injury, should team up with returning starter Ethan Wolf to provide multiple options at the tight end spot.This years group, weve got more veterans and weve got guys whove been here, so we can show the younger guys and bring them along faster than we could in the past, Malone said. Im pretty sure back a couple of years ago you all were still calling us a young wide receiver corps, and the next year we were still a young wide receiving corps. So this year I guess you can say were a veteran receiving corps.Not necessarily. Although Smith and Malone give the Vols a couple of experienced wideouts, Tennessee also has plenty of newcomers. The group includes junior-college transfer Jeff George plus freshmen Tyler Byrd, Marquez Callaway, Brandon Johnson and Latrell Williams.Tennessee may need some of them to contribute immediately.You can see they love football and they want to make an impact now, Dobbs said. Thats exactly what we need from them. Theyre going to have to step up and make some plays this year for us.---AP college football site: http://collegefootball.ap.org Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys ChinaCheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
