Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Mike Wallace was ruled out for Thursday night’s game against the Miami Dolphins, marking only the second game he has missed in his nine-year career.

Wallace suffered a concussion in the first quarter of last Sunday’s 24-16 loss to the Minnesota Jake Bean Womens Jersey Vikings. He was later ruled out, though he appeared to be arguing with coaches on the sideline in an attempt to come back into the game. He remained in the concussion protocol and was limited in practice this week.

Jason Witten caught all four of his targets for 54 yards and an incredible, one-handed touchdown against San Francisco on Sunday. It’s Witten’s second straight competent fantasy performance and continues a bizarre roller-coaster season for the 35-year-old tight end. Witten was fantasy’s No. 1 and No. 3 scoring tight end in Weeks 1 and 2, respectively, but was limited to a total of two catches for 12 yards the following two games.

The NFL did fine Mitchell $9,115 for that late hit on Smith, which came below the knees after Smith had delivered a pass. However, the Kansas City Star reports that the NFL slapped Mitchell with a $48,620 fine for a helmet-to-helmet shot on Chiefs running back Charcandrick West. The hit landed West in the league’s concussion protocol, and he missed Thursday’s game against the Raiders.

Yet it’s the hit on Smith that created the most controversy. After watching a replay, Smith himself said the hit was as flagrant as it gets. Mitchell drew a 15-yard penalty on that play, while the head shot on West did not get flagged.

Limited Womens Colton Schmidt Jersey Mitchell denied intentionally going low against Smith, saying he’d been tripped and then shoved by another player.

But one of the biggest tests came his junior year of high school, when Cousins injured his ankle in the first game. He was hit while throwing a pass and hobbled through the rest of the game, throwing three touchdowns in a win.

The Kansas City Chiefs look unstoppable right now. They lead the league in scoring with 32.8 points per game, and they’ve taken down tough opponents 锟斤拷 including the Patriots, Eagles, and Texans 锟斤拷 on their way to a 5-0 start. That’s just part of the reason Alex Smith is our frontrunner for league MVP through the first five weeks of the season.

The Steelers reasserted themselves as AFC contenders with the win. Up until Sunday afternoon, most storylines surrounding the Steelers involved Alejandro Villanueva accidentally going out for the national anthem, Le’Veon Bell’s slow start, and Ben Roethlisberger questioning if he had it anymore. Sunday, they simply outplayed the Chiefs, narratives be damned.

Patrick Wiercioch Limited Jersey Le’Veon Bell proved once again that he was back. He had 32 carries for the Steelers, with 184 yards and a touchdown. Antonio Brown also showed out for Steel City, with eight catches for 155 yards and a touchdown.

Brown also had one of the most breathtaking plays of the weekend with his one-handed catch that was tipped by a Chiefs defender. It was a game that we knew the Steelers were capable of winning, and they finally put it together.

For one, 25 years ago, Nortman would have been three years old. I don’t care how talented a toddler he was, there just would not have been a lot of people talking about his punting ability. And second off, even if there Adam Lind Jersey were people talking about his punting, I would not have been able to gauge the temperature of the discussion unless I, like, commissioned a survey of his preschool. And I don’t even know where he went to preschool. I wouldn’t even know where to begin to look that up.

Chris Long is donating the rest of his year’s salary to increase educational equality. The Philadelphia Eagles’ defensive end already gave his first six game checks to provide two scholarships for students in Charlottesville, Virginia. Now, he’s giving the rest of his pay to launch the Pledge 10 for Tomorrow campaign.

Said Goodell after the meetings concluded: “We spent today talking about the issues players are trying to bring attention to. Issues in our communities, to make our communities better.”

Goodell and owners moved on to other league topics after the portion of the owners meeting concerning the demonstrations around the anthem had concluded.

Many players came away from their meeting with Goodell thinking it was beneficial. A group of 11 owners and more than a dozen players met at the league’s headquarters. Among the topics discussed was enhancing players’ platforms for speaking out on social issues.

Miami Dolphins owner Stephen Ross said the NFL’s policy on the national anthem “did not come up” during the meeting with the players, and Indianapolis Colts defensive back Darius Butler said he doesn’t think there will be any change in the rules regarding the anthem in the near future.falcons_137

Shilique Calhoun Game Jersey The Miami Dolphins’ owner, Stephen Ross, speaking in New York at a business meeting of the 32 owners, said that the league had made no changes to its policy and that players would be free to protest again this weekend.

I can’t really tell you what people are going to do, Ross said when asked if players would continue to protest. The league has a policy. It hasn’t changed.
Elite Kole Calhoun Jersey
The league’s rule book never required players to stand for the anthem but says they must be on the sideline during the song and should stand for it.

The percentage of people of color in team professional administrative positions substantially increased from 22 percent in 2016 to 27.3 percent in 2017. Women in these positions also increased significantly from 33.2 percent in 2016 to 35.9 percent in 2017. This was the highest percent of women in professional administration positions since 2007.

Teams need to follow the example set by the league office, as percentages for women at the team level remain significantly below those at the league level. The NFL continues to make progress on and off the field regarding racial and gender hiring practices and I am sure that athlete activism will help even more as the NFL moves its teams to follow its example as it embraces diversity and inclusion.

Owners have expressed to players that they would like for the players to stand for the anthem, according to Mara. But the league’s support of players’ social programs should not be interpreted as a trade-off to get players to stand for the anthem, he said.

Encarnacion wasn’t even available in Game 3, Francona said. But the defending AL champions have chosen not to pursue replacing him on the active roster because that would make the three-time All-Star ineligible in the next round.

I think we’re making the right decision, Francona said. Because to not have Edwin — and it hurt us [Sunday] night — to just write him off if we can move on, that would be tough to do.

Francona was initially skeptical when pitching coach Mickey Callaway and former Indians bullpen coach Kevin Cash, now the Tampa Bay Rays’ manager, lobbied him to plug Carrasco back into the rotation in August 2014. But Francona gave it a shot, and Carrasco shut down the Yankees in New York in his first outing and logged a 5-3 record and a 1.30 ERA in 10 starts down the stretch. In hindsight, his exposure to relieving gave him the mental skills he needed to get over the hump as a starter.

Authentic Jamaal Charles Jersey I think when he went to the bullpen and took that mentality of just going as hard as he could from pitch one and not worrying about getting deep into the game, that’s when we saw things click for him, Chernoff said. He carried that approach back into the rotation, and he’s been that same way since.
Elite Kids Marcus Johansson Jersey
Regardless of what happens Sunday or the rest of October, Carrasco’s emergence is another tribute to Cleveland’s pitcher development approach. Francona, Callaway, the Indians’ front office and the organization’s development staff have shown a knack for recognizing pitching talent, nurturing it and showing the requisite patience to achieve big results.

That’s still a shock to me, said Smart. I’m 23 years old and you guys are calling me the longest-tenured Celtic. I never in a million years would have thought about that.

Or as Terry Rozier III (the Roman numerals added to his jersey this offseason) more bluntly put it: To remain on the Celtics after a tornado happened is crazy.

To sign Hayward to a max contract, changes were necessary. Familiar faces such as Avery Bradley and Kelly Olynyk were lost to make a free-agent splash. It turned out that was only a warm-up act, as Ainge dropped jaws around the NBA by dealing Isaiah Thomas, Jae Crowder, Ante Zizic, the Brooklyn Nets’ 2018 first-round pick and the Miami Heat’s 2020 second-round pick to Cleveland in exchange for Kyrie Irving.

It’s definitely different than any other time I’ve been here, Walton said of how it felt to be in Las Vegas this weekend. … It’s definitely a little strange [walking around] after what happened. I think it kind of shows why our country is so amazing and why our country needs a lot of help at the same time. You see both sides of it.

You know what? I love to pitch everywhere, Carrasco told reporters Saturday. Home, here, other stadiums. It’s the postseason. There are going to be a lot of people [watching]. This is going to be my first time, but I always say, it’s the same baseball.
Chris Harris Jr Authentic Jersey
While Bauer is a work in progress at age 26, Carrasco’s r茅esum茅 reflects the volatile and often unpredictable nature of player development. He was a perennial top-10 prospect in the Philadelphia system after signing for a $300,000 bonus out of his native Venezuela in 2003, but the results didn’t quite match the physical gifts, and he was tagged with a label that came to define him in his formative years.

A man who was left blind in one eye — at least temporarily — and may ultimately lose the eye after a foul ball struck him in the face at Wrigley Field this summer has filed a lawsuit against the Chicago Cubs and Major League Baseball, alleging that they have failed to install enough safety netting to protect him and other fans.

At a Monday news conference 60-year-old John “Jay” Loos said he has undergone three surgeries to repair his severely damaged left eye and the five bones in his face shattered by the foul ball that struck him as he sat down the first-base line during a game between the Cubs and the Pittsburgh Pirates on Aug. 29.

One more: In Game 4 of the other ALDS, Astros DH Carlos Beltran doubled off Red Sox closer Craig Kimbrel to drive in a crucial insurance run in the ninth inning. Kimbrel is one of the best relievers ever, but at that moment he was probably compromised. Beltran hit Kimbrel’s 38th pitch of the game, his 23rd of that inning, and his eighth of that at-bat. The wear of the previous 37 seemed to show: Kimbrel’s first five fastballs of the night were 99, 101, 101, 100 and 100; his final five were 98, 97, 98, 97, 98. Still hard to hit!

Adrian Peterson, RB, Arizona Cardinals (47.5 percent): Peterson, traded to the Cardinals on Tuesday, gets the chance to show one more time whether he still has the goods to be a starting running back in this league. The opportunity is there, as Arizona’s run game has been a none factor since David Johnson’s injury. While Peterson has minimal passing game impact, he seems likely to get 12-15 carries per game right away. In a non-PPR league, especially one with 12 or more teams, he’s an add for an owner with limited options. Is there upside? Much of the recent empirical evidence says no (since the start of last season, he has 153 yards on 64 carries, 2.39 yards per carry), but this presents a chance for AD to get on track.ravens_005

The Red Sox and the city of Boston have increased security at Fenway Park for Game 3 of the AL Division Series against the Houston Astros.

A Red Sox spokesman confirmed that the police presence was in response to news reports that Las Vegas shooter Stephen Paddock had looked for a hotel room overlooking Fenway before killing 58 people and injuring more than 500 at a music festival.

Fans were asked to arrive early because of additional screening to enter the ballpark. Law enforcement officers stood guard on the ballpark roof, scanning the neighborhood through binoculars, as the game got underway.

Alex Bregman Elite Jersey Red Sox spokesman Kevin Gregg said the team was not responding to a specific threat.

Throughout this offseason, the fantasy hoops staff at ESPN has been discussing the historic combination of depth and quality in the first round this season; you can net league-shifting superstars at the turn with regularity. You might be surprised to see so many centers mixed into the same tier as elite gravity guards like Stephen Curry and James Harden and preeminent play-making wings such as Giannis Antetokounmpo and LeBron James.

As I explained when anointing Karl-Anthony Towns my top pick in points leagues this season, it’s all about the valuable volume the emergent star delivers –Towns was sixth in boards, fifth in minutes and 12th in points per game in just his second season.

For some added context for this center-centric top tier, consider that six players averaged at least 12 boards last season and a dozen players cleared at least 10 per game. There were 24 players with at least eight rebounds per game last season. Only six players averaged at least eight assists last season, while just three topped 10 assists per game. Even if the real NBA doesn’t value centers in the small-ball spacing climate, you should covet them in points formats.

Clemson quarterback Kelly Bryant left Saturday’s game against Wake Forest with an ankle injury, and his status going forward is uncertain.

Bryant said he injured the lower part of his left ankle on an 8-yard run in the third quarter of the No. 2 Tigers’ 28-14 win when a defender hit him high and another rolled into his leg. Bryant stayed in for the next play — a 1-yard touchdown by running back Travis Etienne — but limped to the sideline and didn’t return.

Nazair Jones Jersey I didn’t want to force it and make it worse than it was, Bryant said after the game. I tried to run on it on the sideline, and it just wasn’t feeling too good.

Hawaii (2-4, 0-3) took a 14-7 lead when Dru Brown connected with Kade Greeley on a 42-yard touchdown pass with 3:55 left in the first half but, on the first play of Nevada’s next offensive possession, Moore ran 43 yards to the 28, setting up Gangi’s TD run . The Rainbow Warriors were called for three penalties and lost 9 yards on their ensuing possession and then were called for two more — including targeting on linebacker Penei Pavihi — as the Wolfpack went 66 yards in 26 seconds to take a 21-14 lead when Gangi hit Wyatt Demps for a 2-yard score with 18 seconds left in the half.
Kent Bazemore Mens Jersey
Moore added a 22-yard touchdown reception and, after a 75-yard scoring run by Hawaii’s Diocemy Saint Juste, Demps scored on a 32-yard catch in the second half. Demps finished with seven receptions for 111 yards.

Saint Juste finished with 24 carries for a career-high 241 yards for Hawaii, which has lost four in a row. The senior moved into third on the program’s career rushing list with 2,484 yards, moving past Travis Sims (2,311).

I know there’s going to be some discussion about the Chargers’ uprooting (from San Diego). Could that have had any effect on his play? It sounds like lame excuse-making, but it has got to have a negative impact on him playing in a small venue that’s working completely against the Chargers with 20,000 of the 25,000 fans rooting for the other team. Of course, that doesn’t explain his whole career, because so much from a statistical standpoint has been Hall of Fame quality.

The same goes with Eli. The numbers point to him being an elite-level player. But the question is always asked: How good is he really? Why is this guy winning Super Bowl MVP awards and people still have questions about what he’s all about? That in itself makes you wonder.

Still, it’s hard to fathom him not eventually getting in the Hall. I’m going to say the same for Rivers. It just might take a little longer for him because there are no championship victories on his resume.
