Bucs’ Jameis Winston day-to-day with sprain in throwing shoulder

Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Jameis Winston has officially been diagnosed with a sprained AC joint in the shoulder of his throwing arm, according to coach Dirk Koetter. There is no structural damage, and he’ll be day-to-day.

In 2016, the rule kept Green Bay Packers defensive lineman Kenny Clark and Jacksonville Jaguars linebacker Myles Jack, both UCLA products, away from OTAs.

The exception to the rule was to graduate early — something that 2016 first-round picks DeForest Buckner and Joshua Garnett both did — to participate in OTAs. But now, players will be allowed to choose for themselves when to begin practicing with their new teams. And it’s about time.

After it wrapped up just before 2 p.m. ET, the sides issued a joint statement in which they said, in part: “Everyone who is part of our NFL community has a tremendous respect for our country, our flag, our anthem and our military. In the best American tradition, we are coming together to find common ground and commit to the hard work required for positive change.”

The Seahawks have been particularly vocal about social activism, in part, Sherman said, because of the team’s makeup.

“Our team is as loosey-goosey as they come,’’ he said. “Got a very, as the politicians would say, liberal team and ownership. Because those things matter nowadays. You are liberal or you are conservative. You are alt-left or you are alt-right. Whatever happened to human beings? But whatever. Story for a different day.’’

Many involved in Tuesday’s meeting called it a positive step, but Sherman pointed to one player who wasn’t present, beyond Kaepernick: teammate Doug Baldwin, who co-signed a letter with NFL commissioner Roger Goodell that was sent to the Senate Judiciary Committee expressing support for a bill that seeks criminal justice reform.steelers_007

Refs penalize Cowboys for barely touching Aaron Rodgers Jersey

The Cowboys appeared to have the Packers pinned deep in their own territory in the third quarter of Sunday’s long-awaited showdown when Demarcus Lawrence grabbed hold of Aaron Rodgers leg at the two-yard line. Instead, Green Bay wound up with a 15-yard gift from the officials.
Jordan Bell Kids Jersey
Game Tyson Alualu Jersey The Jets shut out the Browns in the first half, with Kizer going 8-of-17 for 87 yards and an interception. Kizer lost a fumble in the half as well.

Hogan came in for Kizer last week, but head coach Hue Jackson said it was a precaution as to not get Kizer hurt in a blowout.

What does this mean for the Browns? It’s not great that Kizer hasn’t had a good showing to start the season, but there are still clearly issues on the Browns’ offense. You can mainly point to a lack of talent on the roster, and asking a rookie quarterback to work with them isn’t exactly easy.

However, upon coming into the game, Hogan led the Browns to a lead, going 5-of-5 on his first drive with 52 yards and a touchdown. It’s the first lead the Browns have had all season at 7-3.

Hogan has yet to start a game in his NFL career but had 6 appearances coming into Sunday’s game. He’s got a career 53.3 percent completion percentage with 287 yards and a touchdown with three interceptions.

Mike Gillislee, RB, Patriots: As is often the case, when Gillislee fails to find the end zone, he lets his fantasy managers down. On Sunday, he managed 10 carries, but on the three offensive plays the Patriots ran within three yards of the goal line, Tom Brady threw twice and Dion Lewis got and converted the team’s only rushing attempt. The latter development was most frustrating in fantasy terms; he was started in 65.4 percent of ESPN leagues, but any doubt about his goal-line role would severely lower his value.

Packers aren’t done but have got to be different with Brett Hundley Jersey at QB

With just one hit, the Packers’ hopes for the 2017 season were put on the shoulders of a largely unknown quantity.

Game Mens Paul Martin Jersey Brady on setting the record for most regular-season wins: I wish we would have done better, but we won.

The key ingredient there is moving the ball. Carmelo has been a guy the past 10 years where the ball comes to him and it sticks. He now has a team where he has Paul George, [Russell] Westbrook and Steven Adams at center. If things are done the right way these guys can make a lot of noise. At some point of your career, especially when you are older, you have to say, ‘Do I still want to get my mine or do I want to win? How to I want to be remembered? As a winner, or a guy who put up big numbers?’

We’re back for the second half in Kansas City. The Chiefs will start the period’s opening drive at their own 25 following a touchback.

Hundley has the arm to push the ball downfield and demonstrated some chemistry with top receiver Jordy Nelson, hitting him on a perfectly timed back-shoulder throw to the sideline.

For all the positives, Hundley’s glaring failing one that inhibits many young quarterbacks was evident when he stared down his target on a pass intercepted by Harrison Smith, who took advantage as Hundley failed to scan the field and look off the safety.

Kyle Shanahan returns to where he and his father once dueled Robert Griffin III (exactly what a team wants, of course). Their last four losses have been by a total of 11 points, including last week’s overtime defeat in Indianapolis. This is likely their fate this season: not close enough because their talent isn’t anywhere close enough. Washington has coughed up two winnable games, to the Eagles and Chiefs, which isn’t as encouraging as it sounds.

Former LB DeAndre Levy Jersey testifies Lions implored him not to talk about brain injuries

Former Lions linebacker DeAndre Levy told a congressional subcommittee Friday that the team tried to stifle him from publicly discussing the issue of brain injuries in football.

The Lions deny Levy’s claims.

Game Mens Brandon Finnegan Jersey Levy said that after the Detroit Free Press published a letter he wrote, titled Scary that I may have CTE, in March 2016, the Lions implored him to say no more.

The moment I said anything about it, I had two calls telling me that I shouldn’t talk about it, Levy told the subcommittee, per the Free Press. I wrote the paper and I was told not to talk about it the first day that it was out and I’m just like, it could have been just because locker room culture is nobody wants to talk about anything other than football, but it didn’t sit well with me when I’m talking about a brain injury.

The TV partners flushed players’ historic social justice protests down the memory hole in Week 6.

Protests? What protests?

There were virtually no live shots of NFL players sitting, kneeling or standing Sunday during the playing of The Star-Spangled Banner, much less footage of fans booing players.

Instead, CBS, Fox and NBC chose to stay in commercial breaks during the pregame presentation of the flag and anthem. Once they returned from commercial, network play-by-play announcers and analysts paid little or no attention to what players did on the field.

Love shot just 1-for-12 on Tuesday, and the Cavs shot only 40.5 percent as a team.

Giannis Antetokounmpo solves a lot of problems, and if he takes another mini-leap, the Bucks could exceed expectations. Parker’s eventual return will beef up their depth, and give Milwaukee a little more data on how all the pieces fit; Parker and Middleton logged just six minutes together last season. Parker has defended so far with a poisonous combination of cluelessness and hyperactivity. It was not surprising that Milwaukee fared better without him.

Extension talks for Parker will likely go to the Oct. 16 wire, and any deal would nudge the Bucks close to next season’s tax. They have discussed dumping John Henson and Teletovic, but teams are squeezing hard, sources say.

Cleveland is going through an adjustment period as it tries to fit three new players into its starting lineup — Dwyane Wade, Derrick Rose and Jae Crowder — on top of the position shift for Love. Another new addition, Isaiah Thomas, is recovering from a torn labrum in his right hip and will need to be worked back into the mix when he returns in late December.

“We’re going to get better as the season goes along, of course,” Lue said after the loss to Chicago dropped his team to 0-4 in the preseason. “But we will be better than we were tonight, for sure.”

“Didn’t make much of it at all,” Love said. “Preseason. A lot of bad stuff out there. It looked ugly, but we’re fine. … We’ll look at some stuff, clean it up. As long as we play hard, good things will happen.”ravens_009

Facing Deshaun Watson Jersey: a brutal reminder of Browns’ latest NFL Draft whiff

I have a few questions for Sashi Brown and Paul DePodesta, the Cleveland Browns’ alleged football brain trust. What in the world were you thinking when you passed twice on Deshaun Watson (at No. 1 and No. 12) in the 2017 NFL Draft?

How about the year prior, when you traded out of the No. 2 spot in which you could have selected Carson Wentz?

Have you ever heard the term franchise quarterback?

Paul Konerko Womens Jersey In case the Browns are oblivious to how sensational Watson has played over the past two weeks, they will see him in person when winless Cleveland plays in Houston on Sunday. And the passionate Browns fan base likely will be seething after another loss as they think about the bad decisions to pass on Watson and Wentz.

Cam Fowler Womens Jersey Not to mention team owner Jimmy Haslam, who has to be wondering once again about his football operations leadership.

After LeGarrette Blount was stopped a yard short on third-and-3 from the 5, Wentz picked up the first down on fourth-and-1 with a quarterback sneak. That set up a 1-yard pass to tight end Zach Ertz to tie things at 10-10.

After violating the league’s substance abuse policy Snead was suspended in September, but says he has learned from his mistakes and is ready to move forward.

It’s been a learning experience, he said. This is something I’ve never been through. So I’m just trying to take it day by day, keeping my family close, keeping my faith strong.

Hunter Henry Jersey is having what can only be described as an odd start to his second professional season.

Authentic Chris McCullough Jersey
The 2016 second-rounder has gone without a target in two of his five games but has been targeted seven-plus times in two others. Henry has scored in back-to-back games, which is nice, but his inconsistent usage in the passing game makes him an extremely risky fantasy play. One reason for optimism that Henry’s career could be turning a corner is the fact that he ran more routes than Antonio Gates on Sunday. It’s only the second time in his career in which that has been the case, and the other was when Gates was returning from a two-game absence in Week 5 last season. Ignoring those two games, Henry set career highs in snaps and pass routes on Sunday. He should, at least, be on benches, and he could be on the verge of rejoining the TE1 discussion.

The Cowboys have a few key players who they hope can either play through minor issues — like offensive tackle Tyron Smith’s back tightness — or get over strains, like linebacker Sean Lee, who missed the past two games with a hamstring injury. By resting Lee for two games with a bye in Week 6, the Cowboys believe that should be enough time for their weakside linebacker to heal. Without Lee, the defense has given up 63 points and allowed two 100-yard rushers over the past two weeks. In the five games Lee has not played since 2015, the Cowboys have allowed three 100-yard rushers. For the defense to do its part, it desperately needs Lee. Note: The Cowboys have allowed 70 points in the past two games, but one touchdown came on a pick-six. — Todd Archer

I’m breaking my 20 percent ownership guide because I am all in on Seferian-Jenkins, not just as a weekly substitute but as a steady option moving forward. Since returning from a league-imposed suspension, Seferian-Jenkins is seventh among tight ends in targets, fourth in receptions and is catching more than 83 percent of his opportunities. He’s rostered in about a third of ESPN.com leagues, and with the Jets not having a clear star wide receiver, the opportunity for Seferian-Jenkins to finish as a top-10 option for the season definitely exists.

Myles Garrett Jersey sacks Josh McCown Jersey on first NFL snap

Myles Garrett wasted no time having an impact in his first NFL game.

The Browns rookie defensive end sacked Jets quarterback Josh McCown on his first play from scrimmage in Sunday’s game at FirstEnergy Stadium.

The Jets were facing a third-and-5 from their own 31-yard line on the opening series when Garrett blew past Jets guard James Carpenter and dropped the veteran quarterback.

Following the Jets’ opening three-and-out, the Browns also punted after three plays to put Garrett and the Cleveland defense back on the field.

Garrett got another sack late in the second quarter, but the Jets held a 3-0 halftime lead thanks to Chandler Catanzaro’s 57-yard field goal as time expired in the first half.

Authentic Mens Doug Baldwin Jersey Kenny Golladay, WR, Detroit Lions, hamstring: Questionable, then inactive for last week’s game, Golladay has remained sidelined in practice all of this week. The Lions made it easy for fantasy owners this week and ruled him out in advance of Sunday’s game.

Corey Davis, WR, Tennessee Titans, hamstring: Davis has not played since Week 2 and remains out again this week with a hamstring injury.

Andrew Luck, QB, right shoulder and Jack Doyle, TE, concussion/neck, Indianapolis Colts: Luck is back in practice! But at least a couple of weeks likely remain before he returns to competition. Doyle was placed in the concussion protocol postgame, but is also listed with a neck injury. After limited work Wednesday and Thursday, Doyle was out of practice Friday and was subsequently declared out for this week’s game.

Eagles face Cardinals looking to go 4-1

The Philadelphia Eagles will look to strengthen their position in the NFC with a matchup against the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday afternoon at Lincoln Financial Field.

Palmer has thrown for 1,282 yards with five touchdowns and five interceptions while under heavy pressure most of the time. Their offensive line has allowed 17 sacks this season.

It started Sunday in the immediate aftermath of their dismantling of the Tennessee Titans and lingered Wednesday as Houston Texans coach Bill O’Brien continued shifting the focus from celebrating that win to preparing to face the lone undefeated team in the NFL.

O’Brien essentially entered his postgame press conference with a wet blanket in hand, poised to smother the hoopla surrounding the record-setting performance of rookie quarterback Deshaun Watson.

Three days later, when asked if the team recognized Watson for claiming AFC Offensive Player of the Week honors following his five-touchdown performance in a 57-14 victory, O’Brien was quick to stamp out that bit of enthusiasm as well. What had passed was past.

“No. I think it’s a great honor, but no,” O’Brien said. “We’re definitely focused on Kansas City. I think, at the end of the day, I think those awards are great. I really do. I think it’s a great honor for him to get that as a rookie, but I think the goal of every week is to make sure we’re focused on the task at hand.”magic_042

Mike Tomlin Jersey, Ben Roethlisberger Jersey take issue with Antonio Brown’s Gatorade toss

The Steelers won pretty handily Sunday against the Ravens, but the win didn’t come without drama.

Elite Kids Matt Moore Jersey Receiver Antonio Brown threw a bit of a tantrum on the sideline when he tossed a Gatorade cooler and proceeded to yell at offensive coordinator Todd Haley. He also appeared to be upset at Ben Roethlisberger after the QB missed Brown on a play in which the receiver was wide open, a third-and-2, which resulted in the team having to punt.

On Tuesday, Big Ben spoke to 93.7 The Fan about the incident, and he made it pretty clear he doesn’t want to see that kind of thing from Brown again.

I don’t know [if] he needs to react that way. He’s superhuman on the football field, and when that happens it almost brings him back to being a mere mortal, if you will. Because it gets in his head and it just messes with all of us a little bit, Roethlisberger said. I’m not trying to call AB out. I just think this is causing a distraction that none of us really need.

The quarterback clearly doesn’t have a problem with Brown himself. He was praising the receiver in the interview, saying, AB is the best receiver in the world, maybe one of the best to ever play the game. I’d like to think him and I together may be one of the best quarterback-wide receiver combos to ever play the game.
