Pete Carroll says RB Chris Carson suffered broken leg

Seahawks starting running back Chris Carson suffered a broken leg as well as high ankle sprain Sunday night against the Colts, coach Pete Carroll said Monday.

“Last night when they did the initial X-rays his ankle was fine,” Carroll said on ESPN 710 Seattle, via the Seattle Times. “He’s got a fracture that’s way up just below his knee. It’s not a displaced one and all that, but because of the torque of the way it happened it was not in the area they were focused on, so I told the team he didn’t have a broken leg and everybody was excited about that for him. But he does. … It was not in his ankle, it was in his upper leg. We don’t know that means yet.”

When police discovered the vehicle, it had been abandoned. Boyd, a second-round pick from Pitt in the 2016 NFL Draft, tweeted Thursday that he did not have anything to do with the accident; it was just his car. Boyd reportedly told police two days after the wreck someone else was driving his car and he was not in the vehicle at the time of the accident.

Pittsburgh television station WTAE reported Boyd, who faced DUI charges in 2015 while at Pitt, admitted one vape pen and the unopened vape cartridges were his, but said “they don’t get you high or anything.”

The Bengals said in a statement they are “aware of the media report Cheap Jerseys Sunglasses and working to gather more information.” After catching 54 passes for 603 yards and a touchdown as a Cheap Jerseys Sale rookie last season, Boyd has four catches for 37 yards in three games this season.

Elliott’s attorneys released a statement after the suspension was announced.

Belichick isn’t the only one who gets anxious ahead of Week 1. Patriots quarterback Tom Brady said he “absolutely” wakes up with the proverbial butterflies in his stomach on game day.

“I think everybody does,” Brady said Monday. “Everyone works hard and it’s very unpredictable. You never know what’s going to happen.

“We, as players, feel like that, too. We’re prepared, we’re confident, but you’ve still got to go out there and do it, and you’ve got to do it against a team that you’ve studied but not much this year. You know they’re working on stuff, we’re working on stuff, we try to execute at a high level and they do, too. Yeah, there will definitely be nerves and being anxious, but that’s part of football. And, once you get out there and start going, those things calm down.”

According to the Star-Telegram, Elliott and the NFLPA are aware of Roberts’ situation and plan to exploit it if they have to go to federal court.

They called the NFL’s investigation “replete with factual inaccuracies and erroneous conclusions.”

Goodell appointed Harold Henderson, a former league executive who has heard many cases involving the NFL’s personal conduct policy, to hear the Elliott appeal. Henderson has the final say on whether to uphold the six-game suspension for Elliott.

Six rushes for 18 yards for Adrian Peterson, seven for 17 for Alvin Kamara Cheap Goalie Jerseys Soccer and six for 18 for Mark Ingram in Monday night’s loss. Possible overreaction: No single Cheap High Quality Soccer Jerseys running back stepped up for a New Orleans team that wanted to emphasize the run in 2017, and if no one does going forward, it could be another losing season for the Saints.

LSU’s pitcher bounced a pitch 10 feet in front of the plate

If LSU and Florida state can top the level of crazy they displayed on Saturday night, that’d be a remarkable feat of human will. FSU committed three errors ON THE SAME PLAY to lose, 5-4, and Wednesday’s rematch is showing trickles of the same.

Well, there’s no shortage of college baseball weirdness in Omaha on Wednesday, and LSU’s starter Jared Poche is here to continue the funhouse show. How about a big bad pitch straight into the infield grass of TD Ameritrade Park? You got it.

So, that one bounces around 10 feet in front of the plate and still makes the strike zone. Whatever the case, Poche forced a pop up to center to end the at-bat, then retired the next two batters he saw and got the hell out of there. He’s still dealing, and the ‘Noles are having trouble moving men around the base paths.

There’s still plenty of time for this one to go off the rails.

Spectacular. Hilarious. LSU would eventually eliminate the ‘Noles to advance to the final series with Florida, but not before FSU totally screwed themselves in the rematch a few days later.

Specifically, LSU shortstop Kramer Robertson experienced the world’s worst brainfart once the final series commenced. He was a .413 hitter on the season, but his bat fell totally asleep Cheap NFL Jerseys China after the bracket round began. But that’s the worst of it. For some reason his fielding took a nosedive as well.

He started off a horribly blunder-filled game in a bad 13-1 loss to Wholesale Jerseys Usa Oregon State, for instance.

Clippers will acquire Danilo Gallinari in three-team trade for 3-years, $65 million

The Denver Nuggets have agreed a three-team deal including a sign-and-trade that sends forward Danilo Gallinari to the Los Angeles Clippers, according to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski. The deal would be a rare double sign-and-trade that also sends Paul Millsap to the Nuggets and Jamal Crawford to the Atlanta Hawks.

Gallinari’s contract will be worth $65 million over three years, according to Wojnarowski, and the Hawks would receive a future first-round pick as the third team in the trade.

“I will say Indiana could have done better than they did,” Gilbert said, unprompted, as Altman concluded his comments about trade discussions with Indiana.

The Pacers dealt George, a four-time All-Star, to the Thunder in late June in exchange for Victor Oladipo and Domantas Sabonis. Oladipo disappointed in his lone season in Oklahoma City and is on an exorbitant contract worth $21 million over each of the next four seasons. Sabonis averaged 5.9 points and 3.6 rebounds in Cheap NFL Jerseys Good Quality 20 Cheap NBA Jerseys From China minutes per game as a rookie with the Thunder, shooting just over 32 percent from downtown.

The deal came as a head-scratcher after Indiana reportedly had several more attractive offers on the table. The Celtics held a host of picks and young players, including the No. 1 pick this year and multiple potential top-5 picks next season that Indiana could have recouped in a deal. The Pacers also had a three-team offer on the table, according to ESPN, that would have sent George to Cleveland, Kevin Love to Denver, and Gary Harris, along with the No. 13 pick and other assets from the Cavaliers to Indiana.

Instead, the Pacers eventually pulled out of the deal and settled for Oladipo and Sabonis, two young players with NBA experience who project to contribute immediately as the team builds around budding big man Myles Turner.

NBA trade deadline: Paul George not leaving Pacers, Nuggets offered ‘monster deal’ for SF

In the end, the price was just too high.

Multiple teams inquired about Pacers star Paul George, but no one was willing to meet the lofty demands to acquire his services by Thursday’s 3 p.m. ET NBA trade deadline. Now, the four-time All-Star, averaging 22.3 points and 6.2 assists per game, will have to attempt to lead a 29-28 squad the rest of the way without much help other than budding second-year player in Myles Turner (15.6 ppg, 7.2 rpg, 2.1 bpg).

The Celtics and Nuggets were the most aggressive suitors in the race for George, one of the NBA’s best small forwards along with LeBron James, Kevin Durant and Kawhi Leonard, but, in the end, Celtics Legend Larry Birds simply wanted too much to part ways with his talented 27-year-old.

It shouldn’t have taken that, though.

The NBA was trending away from candidates like Ewing. More coaches without head-coaching experience. More without even assistant experience. More without even NBA playing experience. A Hall of Fame center with 14 years on the bench as an assistant? There was no place for him.

His place, as it turns out, is back where he began. Patrick Ewing is a novice head coach who’s as ready for the job as anyone could be.

Not this college job. The one in the NBA that he never got.

For Hinkie, this would be a shocking endpoint; the league has warmed up to his philosophies, and surely any other job would be more appealing. The Sixers are still going Cheap Game Jerseys through “The Process” years later; the Kings, meanwhile, appear to be in the midst of a decadelong ordeal. Without much to trade, and with the rest of league distrustful of the current front office after the Cousins Cheap Green Bay Packers Jerseys trade, free agents will be hesitant to sign with them. The solutions for this franchise aren’t evident.

Panthers coach Ron Rivera says Cam Newton working to improve flexibility

Cam Newton is working to redeem himself following the worst season of his career.

The Panthers quarterback has been focused on improving the flexibility of his throwing shoulder with strength and conditioning experts in his hometown of Atlanta this offseason with the hope of getting his team back to its dominating form in 2015.

“You expect to go in there and talk about your offense or learning their offense,” Feeney said, via MLive, “and then here’s a guy with a deck of cards, and I’m like, ‘Hey, man, are we playing Blackjack or something?'”

This wasn’t like a trip to Atlantic City. According to Feeney, the card tricks were to test his memory, which sounds like the game of concentration. One person shows the other what’s on the card before flipping it over and moving it around then asking which cards are which.

The test doesn’t prove much about his football skills, but the Browns were likely testing Feeney’s brain following the concussion he suffered during his last season at Indiana. The brain injury kept him out a month before he returned to the team.

According to, playing cards can help with traumatic brain Cheap Replica Jerseys injuries and Cheap Qpr Jerseys help determine “the cognitive function of athletes.”

Mets’ Noah Syndergaard exits game vs. Nationals with apparent injury

Mets starter Noah Syndergaard exited Sunday’s game vs. the Nationals with a lat injury.

The injury comes after New York decided to skip his start Thursday due to a tired arm. Mets brass called the injury a case of biceps tendinitis, and Syndergaard compounded the issue by deciding to forgo an MRI late in the week.

He has thrown a lot of innings during his prime years (a major league-high 698 2/3 over the past three seasons, including 230 in 2016), and showed slight signs of decline in his first season with the Red Sox. By his own admission, his fastball command was off. Perhaps that’s one reason he threw his fastball a career-low 48.8 percent of the time. He filled the void with his cutter and changeup.

In addition, Fangraphs’ stats say his average fastball velocity was 92.9 mph, down from 94.2 mph in 2015 (but not far below his 93.2 mph average in 2014).

Those issues with the fastball contributed to him allowing a career-high 30 home runs last year. He needed a strong second half to get his ERA down to 3.99 (3.60 FIP).

As the risk of breakdown grows with each pitch, there’s a reasonable chance Price’s performance will further erode over the next two seasons. That will make it much easier for him to ride out a contract that guarantees him $31 million a year on average.

That’s not foremost in his mind, naturally; as he Cheap Long Sleeve Soccer Jerseys told The Globe, being part of a perennial contender is. But if everything turns out right and Price is still an ace heading into the 2018 offseason, he shouldn’t hesitate to become a better negotiator and use his leverage.

That’s why normally you’d want to put a guy that size outside.

Out there he will see more favorable opportunities to make big plays against offensive tackles who are, again, further off the ball in general and where the double teams are usually done by a smaller tandem of a tight end and a tackle rather than having to take on two 300+ pounders at center and guard

My gripe isn’t just that he played inside, but more so that so much of the time it was as a 4-3 nose tackle on the center or a 2i (inside shade) of the guard, rather than as a three technique.

You couldn’t possibly put a guy that size, with McDowell’s physical gifts and tools and his athleticism and his array of power and finesse pass rush moves, in a worse position than having him line up in the A gap play after play.

On the rare occasion when they actually did stick McDowell out on one of the edges to pass rush, the guy looked amazing at times. When Michigan State matched him up against an offensive tackle, he was opening up cans of whup ass all over the place.

Why yes, that was probable first-round pick Ryan Ramczyk that McDowell beat like a drum, why do you ask?

The Blue Jays have had an awful start to the year, and blew one of their best chances to erase it last week when they dropped series to a pair of division rivals. This week presented a chance to undo at Cheap Zach Parise Jerseys least a little of that, as Toronto was facing the also-struggling Cardinals in a three-game set. The Jays took game one, 6-5, and then had the second matchup rained out, setting up a doubleheader for China Cheap Jerseys Wholesale Thursday. That doubleheader managed to right the Cardinals’ metaphorical ship while further sinking that of Toronto.

This fan’s idea to keep Blackhawks in playoffs would erase Cubs’ World Series win

The Chicago Blackhawks, winners of three Stanley Cups in five seasons, met an early end in the 2017 NHL playoffs.

You know the story by now. The Nashville Predators held Chicago to three goals all series in a stunning first-round sweep. Some fans are handling this more than others.

For instance, this Reddit post:

No disrespect to the preds, I’m a firm believer that Nashville sweeping them is a huge fluke and robs the Hawks of truly accomplishing what their capable of. I’ve spent the last few days in pure disbelief and it just doesn’t make sense to me. I’ve spent the entire regular season watching the Hawks play great hockey it’s just not fair.

Even without Crosby, offensive-minded guys like Evgeni Malkin, Phil Kessel, Jake Guentzel, and Patric Hornqvist (a heckler for Braden Holtby) are elite players who will undoubtedly take Crosby’s workload and spread it out amongst the bench. Hell, even Chris Kunitz is turning heads and making tough plays. It’s that kind of attitude that will lessen the stress of losing Sid.

From that aforementioned list, Malkin is a powerful player that really stands out. Tonight’s bout will be only the second time he’s played in a postseason game without Crosby in the lineup, dating back to the 2013 playoffs. The good news for Head Coach Mike Sullivan and the Penguins is that the Russian forward enters Nike NFL Jerseys 2014 beast mode in Crosby’s absence and has played some of his best hockey when Pittsburgh is desperate New York Giants Cheap Jerseys to fill the gaping hole in in the team’s top forward line.
