Do not read much into Andrew Luck Authentic Jersey being present at the last two Colts’ practices

Kids James Carpenter Jersey
Do not read much into Andrew Luck being present at the last two Colts’ practices, Kevin Bowen of Colts.com wrote in an email update, via Pro Football Talk. Chuck Pagano threw up the red flag on if Luck’s recent practice attendance means his return to participate is definitely coming soon. The Colts enter Week Two of Training Camp with Luck still on the PUP list. Until Saturday’s practice, Luck had been isolated from the media for the bulk of camp.

Kids Tavon Young Jersey Where is Luck in his throwing rehab schedule? Will his return to practice come in the next week or so? Those questions remain unanswered as the team’s regular season opener is less than five weeks away.

Both teams’ coaching staffs were diligent about limiting on-field scuffles and potential injuries during these joint practices.

We kind of just made sure nobody was getting any cheap shots taken on them if the guy wasn’t looking, just making sure we weren’t blowing anybody up, Gase said, via The Phinsider.

Philadelphia hasn’t had quite the same issues with injuries. Carson Wentz is still standing strong in the pocket and the trio of rushers (Wendell Smallwood, Darren Sproles, and LeGarrette Blount) avoiding the same fate as Ryan Mathews, who has had injury problems and was recently released. They have faced a couple of scares, though. Brandon Graham and Jordan Hicks both left practice earlier this week, and Paul Turner could miss more time than expected.

Dolphins-Buccaneers won’t be played in Miami Sunday as Irma looms

The Miami Dolphins will not play their regular-season opener against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers at Hard Rock Stadium on Sunday due to the threat of Hurricane Irma, the NFL announced Tuesday.

Mike Nugent, Josh Lambo and Marshall Koehn all worked out for the Raiders on Monday, a source told ESPN’s Field Yates. All three kickers lost position battles over the weekend.

Price, who is 6-3 and 318 pounds, is viewed as a run-stopping defensive tackle. He played in just one game last season for the Packers and spent time on the practice squad. The Indianapolis Colts attempted to add him to their active roster last year but he chose to remain on the Green Bay practice squad after the Packers upped his salary.

Brady, addressing his wife’s comments in August, did not confirm he suffered a concussion in 2016.

“I don’t want to get into things that happened in my past, certainly medical history and so forth. I really don’t think that’s anybody’s business,” Brady said last month. “What happened last year — I’m focused on this year and improving and working on things I need to get better at. So that’s how I approach everything.

“I’m not sitting here worried about last year or five years ago. There are other people that do worry about that — my wife, or my parents, or my sisters, people that love me and care about me. But I do the best I can do to be prepared to play — mentally and physically — and I give the game everything I can.”

Kirk Cousins Jersey is getting a ton more money from the Redskins

Kirk Cousins is getting a ton more money from the Redskins, but with all the focus on that in the short term, they are adapting to some big changes around him and still have some real defensive deficiencies. His likely last season in Washington will be better for him than the team.

New coach Sean McVay can’t be expected to save the day in L.A. right away, because Jared Goff showed last season that he’s far from a finished product. As McVay works on fixing Goff and Todd Gurley with an upgraded offensive line, the Rams will hope Wade Phillips can get the defense to keep them in more games.

Brian Poole Kids Jersey Tampa Bay tendered Ryan Griffin with the intent of elevating him to Jameis Winston’s top backup in the wake of Mike Glennon’s shockingly lucrative free-agent deal with Chicago. Geno Smith was intriguing for that role with the Bucs before he signed to be Eli Manning’s understudy with the Giants.

Kyle Long Mens Jersey Rather than the Bucs going with Ryan Fitzpatrick or Jay Cutler as what they see is what they’ll get, Kaepernick would give coach Dirk Koetter someone he can use his offensive acumen to re-mold. Kaepernick can work well in the vertical passing game and is set up to bond with both Winston and his go-to receiver, Mike Evans.

Kaepernick at one point looked like he and Russell Wilson would have many epic duels as strong-armed, mobile passers with championships on the line. It’s hard to believe the 49ers-Seahawks classic NFC title game was played only three years ago, given what all has happened since.

Wilson led Seattle to a ring after the 2013 season, something Kaepernick fell just short of the season before. While Wilson and the ‘Hawks have remained a conference contender, Kaepernick faded hard right along with the Niners’ post-Jim Harbaugh freefall.

Chiefs’ Alex Smith Authentic Jersey may be changing game with addition of Patrick Mahomes

Elite Mens Sam Steel Jersey Alex Smith may be showing more aggression this training camp and preseason because of the Chiefs drafting their heir apparent at quarterback in Patrick Mahomes. That according to the Kansas City Star.

I’ve heard from some in the organization who think Mahomes’ presence has helped push Alex to be more aggressive, given the rookie’s gunslinger tendencies, Chiefs reporters Terez Paylor wrote.

He doesn’t get a pass, Bowles said. I’m not saying it was not all his fault. You got to throw the ball and get rid of it as well. The offense as a whole, we didn’t start out well with the first group. We got to play better. That’s him, that’s the O-line, the receivers, the tight end, the fullback and the tailback.

As if Hackenberg didn’t suffer enough Saturday against the Lions, a prankster altered his Wikipedia page.

As the Daily News’ Mehta noted, It’s way too premature to pour dirt on Hackenberg’s future — he has talent — but the present is an altogether different story.

Kaepernick, who has been mired in a quarterback controversy with Blaine Gabbert to see who would lead the 49ers, opted not to rise to his feet for the anthem before a preseason game at Levi’s Stadium.
Elite Mens Tyler Ennis Jersey
His action prompted the 49ers to issue a statement acknowledging that he sat during the anthem and defending his right to do so following the 21-10 loss to the Packers.

NFLPA president: I don’t care if NFL ‘dies out in 20 years’

NFL Players Association president Eric Winston said Monday players don’t care whether a potential work stoppage harms the sport.

Obviously, it makes perfect sense why the Warriors declined the offer, and it really isn’t a difficult one. They’re reigning champions, and they signed Kevin Durant to a team that won 73 games. They’re probably the favorites to win the next, what, five championships? People argued they shouldn’t mess up their core to sign Durant, but they did and got even better. But they might have reached the break-even point. Do they really need to even bother getting better when they’re seemingly this far ahead of the rest of the league?

Authentic Womens D.J. Alexander Jersey After all, Kuzma wasn’t the first-round pick heralded as the greatest floor general of this basketball era. Lonzo Ball was. In fact, Kuzma was the late first-round pick the Lakers landed as part of the Brook Lopez trade. He was only a footnote on a Summer League team headlined by Ball and Brandon Ingram.

Authentic Womens Matthew Dellavedova Jersey It was heartbreak for the Jazz to lose Hayward, someone they slowly groomed into the lead role over the past seven seasons and who was a cornerstone to their plans. But for everything Utah could offer, they couldn’t offer him an easier path to the Finals in the Eastern Conference. They couldn’t offer him a near shoe-in chance at an All-Star team. They couldn’t offer him his old, trusted mentor in Brad Stevens as head coach.

There will still be participation by top players in the big events. The stars will come out for the FIBA World Cup in the summer of 2019, and again for the Olympics in 2020. In Europe, there will even be some big names participating in this summer’s EuroBasket 2017, a continental tournament that no longer has World Cup or Olympic qualifying ramifications. Pride is at stake, and it appears players like Giannis Antetokounmpo and Pau Gasol will participate.

Patriots believe top draft pick Derek Rivers has season-ending injury, report says

The Patriots believe defensive end Derek Rivers, their top draft pick this year, will miss his rookie season with a knee injury, ESPN reported Friday.

NFL Media later reported an MRI showed Rivers tore the anterior cruciate ligament and sprained the lateral collateral ligament in his left knee.

The Dolphins quarterback jumped at the opportunity to help the team after Ryan Tannehill got hurt and recently told the MMQB that he didn’t prepare for the broadcasting job with Fox he had agreed to take before opting to resume his NFL career.

“I mean, I’d be lying if I said I did,” Cutler replied when asked if he practiced his television skills.

Then again, Cutler doesn’t exactly take his workout routine too seriously, either.

“The good thing is I play quarterback so I don’t have to be in that great cardiovascular shape,” Cutler said at his introductory press conference.

Cutler signed a one-year deal worth $10 million with Miami on Aug. 7 following a season-ending injury to Tannehill and made his preseason debut last week against the Ravens. The former Bears quarterback had retired in May, but was optimistic about joining the offense of Dolphins coach Adam Gase, who served as Cutler’s offensive coordinator in 2015 while they were both with the Bears.

The Timberwolves roasted Dave Chappelle with a 4-year-old video of him bricking shots

Authentic Cory Harkey Jersey The Timberwolves are renovating the Target Center and crediting the rebuild to one man: Dave Chappelle.

Chappelle visited the arena is 2013 for a little shootaround, and evidently it didn’t go so well. We can assume this from the endless string of bricks captured in this video. Evidently the Timberwolves didn’t forget, because they waited four years to surface this video, just to tease Dave.

A look at the Nets’ Summer League starting lineup is eerily reminiscent of the roster that posted the NBA’s worst record last season.

Without Jeremy Lin, who missed the bulk of the season with a hamstring injury, Brooklyn’s young players finished 20-62 with their arena cheering opposing players more often than not.
Authentic Chris Jones Jersey
Still, Brooklyn saw growth last season, especially on defense. They went from dead last in defensive efficiency prior to the All-Star break to No. 8 after it, thanks in part to installing Caris LeVert and Rondae Hollis-Jefferson as the starting forwards.

Playoff contention is still miles away for the Nets, and they know it. Owner Mikhail Prokhorov learned that the hard way when he mortgaged Brooklyn’s future — or present — for an aging Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett years ago.

Kasim Reed, Atlanta’s mayor, attended that concert. Hayes attended a meeting days before to go over the mayor’s security detail, according to the suit. When Reed’s security detail asked to drop off the mayor at the media entrance, Parker denied the request. The lawsuit details that white guests had been granted those privileges.

In a meeting following the exchange, Parker explained that Reed thinks he’s a celebrity, according to the lawsuit. Parker went on to allegedly say that the mayor has this attitude that he deserves special privileges and that he thinks he owns the place.

I got Hill and Miles and this is now my favorite team.

Malcolm Smith Kids Jersey Kristian: Seattle went with a hometown pick at 15 and I went to Hampton. The only Pirates to play in the NBA were Devin Green and the honorable Bad Boy himself, Rick Mahorn. I didn’t have any Pirates to choose from.

So, I went with a hometown guy in Whitehead, who’s from Brooklyn. Nets coach Kenny Atkinson likened him to Marcus Smart, and if he reaches that level, there’s no way Whitehead’s not in my rotation.

Whitney: That’s fine with me. I got Hill and Miles and this is now my favorite team.

Kristian: We needed a big man, but I didn’t want someone who could only play one position. I wanted someone young who was developing a versatile skill set.

Lyles is a 21-years-old, 6’10 forward who can step out and shoot threes. He hasn’t played much, but there’s no reason to believe he can’t develop into a legitimate inside-outside offensive threat in the future.

Authentic Tim Williams Jersey Whitney: Like Kristian said, we got a good leader in George Hill to start, so we wanted to keep this team young. Little does Kristian know I’m getting all the guys with Indiana ties. Shoutout to Arsenal Tech in Indianapolis.

We played fast and loose with that mock draft — it was a thought exercise more than a 100 percent realistic simulation of what would happen. The reality is that expansion, while inevitable, has some enormous variables that need to be worked out before any expansion team bids can be taken seriously.

If the NBA opened up the league to expansion, it would find investors. The NBA is incredibly appealing from a business sense — it’s extremely popular in the United States and globally; it doesn’t have a huge issue like head injuries looming over it like football; it’s socially aware; and its demographics trend much younger than other sports.

Dwyane Wade, Bulls expected to reach buyout agreement ‘at some point in the next few months’

Authentic Youth DeMario Davis Jersey
Dwyane Wade’s homecoming may be cut short.

Wade and the Chicago Bulls are expected to reach a buyout agreement in the coming months, according to ESPN’s Nick Friedell, who writes that the 35-year-old guard isn’t long for the organization’s future.

Today, we are collectively freaking out over Kevin Durant, and Lil Dicky, a moderately famous rapper, having a civil conversation about a hot-button sports topic: LeBron James’ future. Just like us! Sometimes we talk about sports!!!

This is an extremely normal conversation that a million people have every single day, but obviously, it stands out because the two figures involved have a combined 16.9 million Twitter followers. (OK, yes, 16.6 million of those are Durant’s.)
Authentic Kids T.J. Lang Jersey
More and more, this is becoming the norm for Durant. He has been using his Twitter to interact with fans, sometimes even asking them questions or debating a topic they bring up. Durant is in a unique world of his own where people are probably tweet at him almost every minute of every day, but he can still use Twitter like a normal person. Let’s not freak out and make it into a bigger deal than we need to, otherwise you’ll scare other celebrities scared away from doing the same thing.

We took a look at some of the acquisitions the Clippers have made since Rivers became coach to see for ourselves.

June 28, 2017: Trade Chris Paul for Patrick Beverley, Sam Dekker, Montrezl Harrell, Darrun Hilliard, DeAndre Liggins, Lou Williams, Kyle Wiltjer, cash and a TPE.
Chris Paul made it clear he wanted to go to Houston and this move was more magic pulled off by Houston than Los Angeles, but Doc got plenty back in return. It will take time so see how this play out but it’s hard to imagine the Clippers being any better next season. Although, they may not be any worse either.

Eddie Lacy failing to stand out in crowded Seahawks backfield

The Seattle Seahawks made it clear in the offseason that they wanted to beef up their running game. Injuries and a poor offensive line made for an ineffective ground game last season, so Seattle signed Eddie Lacy, hoping the free agent would be part of the solution. Through two preseason games, however, Lacy is starting to look like the odd man out.

Lacy was already running behind Thomas Rawls, who’s been practicing exclusively with the first team for most of training camp. In the Seahawks’ first preseason game against the Los Angeles Chargers, Lacy played with the second team and had a middling stat line of four carries for 10 yards, getting stuffed at the goal line at one point.

The second preseason game, against the Minnesota Vikings, raised even more questions about Lacy’s spot on the team. Rawls sat out with a sore ankle and C.J. Prosise also missed the game, so Lacy got the start and an opportunity to pull ahead of seventh-round rookie Chris Carson. Instead, the opposite happened.

Lacy once again wasn’t too inspiring, rushing six times for 20 yards and looking like just a guy out there. Meanwhile, Carson got snaps with the first team and made the most of his chances, running with a purpose and aggression that Lacy simply hasn’t shown. Carson finished with 44 total yards on seven touches, showing that he’s not going away any time soon.

Now the Seahawks have some tough decisions to make about their backfield. Rawls appears set as the starter, while Prosise has a prominent role as the pass-catching specialist. Behind Lacy and Carson are Alex Collins and Mike Davis, with the latter two possibly fighting for one roster spot.
