Packers’ Jordy Nelson out with rib injury after taking sideline hit

The Packers are without their top receiver after Jordy Nelson left Sunday’s game early in the second quarter with a rib injury.

The injury occurred on a first-down pass to Nelson to start Green Bay’s fourth possession against the Giants. Nelson leapt to catch the high pass from Aaron Rodgers and was hit on his left side by Giants defensive back Leon Hall.

He was initially charged with three misdemeanors but saw Cheap Hockey Jerseys For Sale a felony charge added on when police said he spit at a jail nurse who was attempting to take a required blood sample.

At a court hearing Tuesday, Jones’ lawyer said his client vehemently denies the charges against him, and the 33-year-old echoed those sentiments in a brief interview with reporters as he left the Hamilton County Justice Center on Wednesday.

I’m sorry that this happened, Jones told reporters as he left jail (via WCPO). It’d be different if I was beating people’s ass, but for touching someone Come on, man.

The Cincinnati Enquirer reported Jones also said he expects the charges to be dropped.

Jones has a lengthy history of arrests, mostly from early in his career. The NFL Cheap Hockey Team Jerseys suspended him for the entire 2007 season and six games in 2008 for various off-field incidents.

San Diego moving companies refusing to help Chargers move to L.A.

If the Cowboys can be as effective in the postseason as they were in regular season, with league rushing champ Ezekiel Elliott running behind the NFL’s best offensive line, it will take a lot of pressure off rookie quarterback Dak Prescott. Dallas is the only playoff Cheap Game Jerseys team that ran more than it passed this season. (50.8 percent of its plays were rushes.)

It’s interesting that on the AFC side, Patriots ran the ball more than any other team (482 rushes, 46.7 percent of their plays). With New England hosting a Saturday night divisional playoff game, a heavy dose of LeGarrette Blount will be expected.

A group of moving companies in San Diego have banded together in protest of the Chargers move north to Los Angeles.

At least two dozen moving companies from the San Diego area have vowed not to Cheap Google Jerseys assist the team relocate from San Diego to L.A.

Still, at this point in the season, a fumble can end your Super Bowl dreams, so Belichick made a note of Lewis’ loose grip during practice Wednesday.

As rain falls at practice, Bill Belichick shouts, Great day to work on ball security, right Dion?

We all know Belichick isn’t afraid to quit giving a running back touches if they cough up the ball a lot. Stevan Ridley would sit out a lot due to his fumbling issues, and even Jonas Gray never saw the light of day, despite providing success for New England.

Lewis should be fine, but Belichick is clearly trying to send a message before the AFC title game against the Steelers.

Julio Jones promises to keep refs updated on Seahawks’ uncalled penalties

The Falcons begin their postseason journey Saturday against the Seahawks, who have become notorious for their physical play.

Atlanta’s star wide receiver Julio Jones is ready to make sure the Cheap Elite Nike NFL Jerseys officials are aware of the Seahawks’ penalties, especially in the secondary.

Developed by YinzCam, a mobile technology company that works with dozens of big league teams, fans can download or update the Seahawks mobile app and tap the virtual 12 flag raising button featured on the home screen.

After choosing one of three flag options, mobile users position the flag on a flat surface, point the device’s camera toward the flag number and it appears on screen. At that point, the device’s volume button is turned up and down to raise the 12th Man flag. Flag photos and videos can be shared on social media using hashtags #Seahawks and #WeAre12.

The Seahawks are asking their fans globally to raise their virtual flags together at 12:12 p.m. PT on Friday as part of the team’s Blue Friday celebration.

The 12th Man is a key part of the Seahawks’ in-game presentation, recognizing the raucous crowds attending games at CenturyLink Field, which stands as one of the NFL’s loudest stadiums. The Cheap Fishing Jerseys facility typically ranks No. 1 in the league among false starts by the opposing team.

Cowboys’ Dan Bailey will likely retire lucky cleats after this season

Dan Bailey’s cleats have seen better days.

The Cowboys kicker has been wearing the same cleats on game days since 2011, but the cleats likely won’t last too much longer.

He will have his chance to push the Cowboys further into the playoffs when the Packers come to town on Sunday.

Moving the game from the original 1:05 p.m. ET start time will provide local authorities more time to clear roads in the area as the weather is expected to improve throughout Sunday, the league said in a statement. The decision to make this time change was made in consultation with state and local officials as well as the Chiefs and the Steelers.

The team has been prepping for a cold, icy game Sunday. Even though the field at Arrowhead Stadium has a heating system underneath, the grounds crew took extra precaution to make sure it was in peak condition.

Chiefs head groundskeeper Travis Hogan told his crew resodded the middle of the field to add some extra thickness.

We felt like we could have gotten through it without resodding, but we wanted to make sure we put the best possible surface out there for this playoff game, Chiefs president Mark Donovan told the site.

Enter Rogers, who has parlayed his strong preseason to a valuable Cheap Cycling Jerseys role working the slot. He was a big factor in winning three straight division games to stamp the Steelers’ AFC North title. With the attention going to Brown and Le’Veon Bell most in the passing game, Rogers Cheap Donegal Gaa Jerseys is built to take advantage of favorable single coverage.

Sean McVay doesn’t even look like an NFL coach, according to Wolfgang Puck

Rams coach Sean McVay had better play the part come fall, because he certainly doesn’t look it.

The former Redskins offensive coordinator made NFL history on Thursday, becoming the youngest head coach in NFL history when the Rams named him to the position, replacing career loser Jeff Fisher.

Along with grooming 2016 No. 1 overall pick quarterback Jeff Goff into a serviceable starter, McVay will also have to battle to make believers out of a fanbase that hasn’t witnessed its team produce a winning record since 2003.

He certainly won’t get over on his good looks. He got a taste of that on a visit to popular Los Angeles eatery Spago’s, where the he and owner Stan Kroenke encountered world famous chef Wolfgang Puck, during his interview Tuesday.

Checkout ESPN senior writer Arash Markazi’s account of the incident, as told to him by Rams VP of Football Operations Kevin Demoff. The Giants immediately make the Packers pay for their fourth-down mistake. Tavarres King caught a 41-yard touchdown pass from Eli Manning on a post pattern, and New York just like that, on the second play after the turnover, turned the game around. 14-13, Packers.

Green Bay knew a run was coming, and the Packers’ defense still couldn’t get a hand on Tevin Coleman as he strolled into the end zone on a three-yard pitch to Cheap Bike Jerseys For Men the left. The Cheap China Jerseys score was icing on the cake that was a complete performance by the Falcons’ offense. 44-15, Falcons.

There is still a ton of talent on this defense.

The defensive side of the ball was particularly hurt by free agency. Calais Campbell, Tony Jefferson, D.J. Swearinger, and Marcus Cooper all departed for other teams, leaving the Cardinals without key role players. Their only major additions in free agency were safety Antoine Bethea and linebacker Jarvis Jones, but general manager Steve Keim did a good job replenishing the unit in the draft.

First-round linebacker Hasson Reddick and second-round safety Budda Baker should be immediate contributors, with Baker in particular bringing some position versatility just like his new teammate Tyrann Mathieu.

There is still a ton of talent on this defense. Patrick Peterson remains a top-level cornerback, while Chandler Jones revived the pass rush with 11 sacks after coming over in a trade with the New England Patriots. The Cardinals smartly gave him a big extension in March.

Gates, a potential Hall of Famer, is entering his age-37 season and hasn’t played a full 16 games since 2014. Gordon found a way to shuck off a disappointing rookie season by springing for 997 yards and 10 touchdowns in 13 games, but he missed the final three games after being carted off the field in Week 14 with hip and knee injuries.

Even the team’s newest star acquisition — No. 7 overall pick Mike Williams — has a troublesome past when it comes to getting hurt on the field. He missed the 2015 season at Clemson with a broken neck that threatened to end his football career. He’ll miss a chunk of the team’s preseason workouts Cheap Jerseys Made In USA due to back problems as well:

Mike Williams is dealing with a mild disc herniation in his Cheap Jerseys Online Free Shipping lower back, and will be held out the last two weeks of the offseason program.

Saints’ Nick Fairley has a heart condition that could end his career, per report

Saints defensive tackle Nick Fairley is coming off the best season of his career. Now he’s absent from OTAs because of a career-threatening heart condition, according to Jennifer Hale of FOX Sports.

ESPN’s Josina Anderson spoke with a source close to Fairley, who said Fairley’s heart condition was first diagnosed during pre-draft medical testing.

At first, it looked like Spike Lee had broken the news that Kaepernick was going to sign with the Seahawks on Instagram. We later learned that was not the case.

It was just last Friday that Pete Carroll told reporters that Kaepernick was “a starter in this league.” Looking back, Carroll tipped his hand when he doubled down on the statement, adding, “We have a starter, but he’s a starter in this league and I can’t imagine that somebody won’t give him a chance to play.”

Carroll also said the Seahawks were working to “develop it and make sure that we’re making the right decisions” for their backup quarterback situation. For Seahawks defensive end Michael Bennett, he felt that Kaepernick would have been a perfect fit.

Davis joins Trevone Boykin behind Russell Wilson in the Seahawks’ quarterback depth. Boykin was Cheap Jerseys In Bulk the passenger in a car that crashed into a bar in Dallas, where he was arrested Cheap Giants Jerseys for possession of marijuana and public intoxication charges.

As for Kaepernick, the job search continues 10 months after he started his protest.

I’m sorry that this came out of this building

Going into free agency, Kaepernick should have been seeking a competing starter contract. This tier through the years has featured players who were either journeymen starters or high-potential players who flamed out for whatever reasons in their last stops.

Contracts for these players are generally one or two years in length, with the first year of the contract being guaranteed. Most players have high-end incentives in these contracts that allow them to double their earnings if they play well, make the playoffs, make a Pro Bowl, etc.

“I want to put that to rest,” Lynch told the show. “I’m sorry that this came out of this building.”

More important, Lynch continued, he actually told Kaepernick that — a player who had never played for him, but who he treated with more respect and with a higher sense of obligation than the rest of the league seems compelled to do.

“That was what was most important to me,” Lynch said, “to talk to Colin directly and let him know that I was sorry that that did (come out) and that nothing else like that will come out of this building if I have anything to do with it.

“That’s where that is. We wish Colin the best and I can tell everybody out there he very much is sincere in his interest to get back in this league, and I hope it works out for him.”

For what it’s worth, that’s been clear since last October, when under the previous management, he had restructured his contract to do exactly that, and to allow the Cheap DUKe Basketball Jerseys 49ers the same option. Going back even further, his 2017 status had been a factor a year Cheap Euro Jerseys ago when he asked for a trade and the 49ers shopped him around … before thoughts of a protest had ever surfaced. Memories got very selective during the rumor-spreading of the last three months, though.

Thieves who stole DeMarcus Ware’s Super Bowl ring sentenced

DeMarcus Ware has his Super Bowl ring back, and the two men who stole it are going to jail.

Williams has not officially retired from the NFL but is also not on a roster. He played the first nine seasons of his NFL career with the Panthers and his two most recent with the Steelers. He was injured for much of last season and played sparingly in just nine games for Pittsburgh.

Lynch, a first-round draft pick of the Bills in 2007, was a Pro Bowler in 2008, but was traded to the Seahawks in 2010. The former Cal running back was selected to four more Pro Bowls while in Seattle and helped the Seahawks win Super Bowl XLVIII and return to the championship game a year later. He ran for 1,306 yards and 13 touchdowns in 2014, but injuries limited him to just seven games in 2015.

Considering the Jets went 5-11 last season, and have now gotten rid of, or lost, several valuable players, it leaves fans wondering what’s going on. Even people in the league want to know the deal, as one anonymous NFL executive told NFL Network, “I think the Jets might have the worst roster I’ve seen in a decade.”

The names mentioned above aren’t even the only departures. Safeties Texas Rangers Cheap Jerseys Calvin Pryor and Marcus Gilchrist are gone, as well as kicker Nick Folk. New York is hurting most at quarterback, wide Reebok Cheap Jerseys receiver, linebacker, and defensive back positions, which is most of the team.

The three quarterbacks on the roster are Josh McCown, Bryce Petty and Christian Hackenburg and their top receiver is third-year veteran Quincy Enunwa, who caught 58 passes for 857 yards last season. The Jets did draft former Alabama receiver ArDarius Stewart in the third round and take Cal’s Chad Hansen in the fourth.

Kirk Cousins won’t sign long-term deal before Redskins apply franchise tag, report says

The Kirk Cousins contract saga appears destined for Chapter 2 this offseason.

Cousins is set to become a free agent March 1, meaning the Redskins have a little more than a week to place the franchise tag on their starting quarterback before possibly losing him.

Fans were so proud of themselves for choosing a scoring play, they decided to storm the field, with 4:47 remaining in the first quarter. The first quarter. It cannot be stated enough that this occurred in the first quarter and the extra point was delayed for several minutes. The team’s sideline reporter used the opportunity to do an on-field interview with Lauderdale, who said he was proud to be part of history after scoring the team’s first-ever touchdown.

Once fans were finally cleared off the field, the snap for the extra point was bounced back to Lauderdale, who was the holder. There was a penalty called against Nebraska, so the Eagles got another opportunity for the kick, which was then missed.

By the way, those fans who were so excited at the beginning of the game were long gone by the time the Danger completed a 78-47 victory.

The entire game was live-streamed on Sports Illustrated and included Cheap Hockey Jerseys Canada commentary from comedian Norm Macdonald. The ridiculous fan storming occurred about an hour into the broadcast. If you go to the 3:30 mark, a camera spanning the remaining fans spends about 20 seconds on a young boy with his finger up his nose.

It’s classy stuff, folks.
