The Arizona Cardinals released running back Andre Ellington on Monday, a day after he was a healthy scratch for their game against the Houston Texans.

Arizona’s official release did not cite a reason, but Ellington was in the Cardinals’ locker room after the game.

When Arizona signed Chris Johnson in 2015, Ellington’s numbers took a sharp dive to just 289 rushing and 148 receiving yards, as he was limited to 10 games because of injuries.

Last season, as one of Johnson’s backups, Ellington ran for 96 yards on 34 carries.

This season, Ellington saw his touches go down after Arizona traded for Adrian Peterson. He was averaging 8.2 touches per game in the Cardinals’ first Patrick DiMarco Jersey five contests and has had seven since.

Joseph announced Monday morning the team had parted ways with offensive coordinator Mike McCoy. He added that Bill Musgrave, who joined Denver’s staff this year as quarterbacks coach, will assume OC duties. Musgrave has handled the OC role for several NFL teams in the past.

These are tough times for the Broncos, mired in their longest losing streak since 1993-94, and general manager John Elway, who called the team soft last week, isn’t one to stick with the status quo. Joseph is the team’s third head coach in four years.

But the foundation of the changes to come in 2018 will be in the implementation of a pitch clock, sources say, and MLB is intent on using the same limit used in the minor leagues the past three seasons — 20 seconds between pitches when there are no runners on base.

Jalen Ramsey on fight with A.J. Green: I told him he was ‘weak’ and ‘soft’

Both Jaguars defensive back Jalen Ramsey and Bengals star wideout A.J. Green were ejected for fighting during their Week 9 game on Sunday. After much speculation as to what led to the brawl, Ramsey told his side of the story.

“As a player, as a man, and a father, that’s a reflection of me,” Green said, according to USA Today. “I should have walked off in that whole situation. I definitely learned from this experience. It’s never going to happen again.”

The NFL decided against suspending Green or Ramsey, but the two could likely be fined a minimum of $30,387, which is given to players who commit their first offense for fighting.

Although Olsen is on the Panthers’ injured reserve list due to a foot injury, he could potentially play in the Vikings-Panthers game Dec. 10. Minnesota fears that Olsen could gain a competitive advantage, but he won’t be in production meetings or at Vikings practices as members of broadcast teams commonly are.

“We are excited for the opportunity to make this Sunday’s broadcast fun and insightful with Pro Bowler Greg Olsen,” FOX said in a statement to Pelissero. “We fully respect the Vikings concerns and will limit the amount of pre-game access allowed to Greg. We look forward to welcoming him in the broadcast booth and giving viewers a unique perspective this Sunday.”

Although it is unusual for an active NFL player to broadcast a game, this would not be the first time it has happened. While Matt Hasselbeck was quarterback for the Colts in 2014, he called a Rams-Cardinals game, and in 1994, the Chiefs’ Marcus Allen called a game between the Lions and Buccaneers. A key difference is Hasselbeck and Allen did not play the teams in question during those seasons.

Vote: The best and worst of Week 11 in the NFL

Week 11 in the NFL is nearing completion, with only the Atlanta Falcons and Seattle Seahawks left on Monday Night Football (8:30 p.m. ET, ESPN/ESPN App), and there were plenty of standout performances.

Despite coach Mike McCarthy’s comment that this did not appear to be a log-term concern for Montgomery, he is not a lock to return next week. Jones suffered an MCL injury in last week’s game, and ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported a projected absence in the range of three to six weeks, suggesting a moderate sprain. In the meantime, it will be Jamaal Williams garnering the starting role this week.

Chris Hogan, WR, New England Patriots, shoulder: Hogan remains out of practice since originally injuring his shoulder in Week 8. While the team stayed in Colorado in advance of the trip to Mexico City this weekend, Hogan remained behind in Massachusetts to rehab his shoulder.

Jets cornerback Buster Skrine was fined $48,620 by the NFL for a hit on DeSean Jackson last week that resulted in an unnecessary roughness penalty, according to ProFootballTalk.

The play occurred in the third quarter of last week’s 15-10 Bucs’ win. Skrine has already been flagged 11 times overall this season, most by any Adam Foote Jersey defensive player.

Skrine, selected in the fifth round of the 2011 draft, spent his first four seasons with the Browns, racking up six interceptions during that time. He then moved to New York, where he’s had one interception in three seasons combined in a Jets uniform.

Limited Kids Chris Baker Jersey The Jets (4-6) are on bye this week having lost four of their last five games.

Chris Thompson Jersey exploded out of the gate this season with four touchdowns in his first three games.

Since that point, he has managed one touchdown in four games. Though his touchdown rate has obviously regressed quite a bit, it still has a ways to go. The 3.4 gap between Thompson’s touchdown total and OTD is highest among running backs. Thompson has zero carries inside the opponent’s 7-yard line and has been targeted only once within 7 yards of the goal line. His rushing scores came from 7 and 61 yards out and he needed 8-, 17- and 24-yard post-catch runs on the receiving touchdowns. Thompson, who entered 2017 with eight career touchdowns, sits eighth at running back in fantasy points, but his declining touchdown production renders him as no more than a fringe RB2 option.

LaFell has handled four end zone targets this season, which trails Green by only two. LaFell scored six touchdowns with a 5.4 OTD en route to finishing 35th among wide receivers in fantasy points last year. He has exceeded his OTD at least slightly during five of his past six seasons, which provides even more optimism for second-half improvement in that area.

Ortiz fills in the gap. Sometimes one of the things that people hate is you being the best at something, he says. On top of it, people believed that the way A-Rod handled himself wasn’t the right way, I can tell you that. Players always expect you to be humble, to be agreeable. Yes, I know A-Rod from way back there. At some point, things got kinda weird.

First, we’ve talked ad nauseum about Womens Chris Carson Jersey the robust 2018 veteran quarterback market, and given the above, the Jaguars may wind up being a pretty attractive landing spot for a Drew Brees or a Kirk Cousins or a Jimmy Garoppolo or a Sam Bradford.

Second, I’m not sure the Jaguars should wait. There are two-and-a-half weeks between now and the trade deadline. So why not call the Giants about Manning or the Chargers about Philip RiversThey currently have around $40 million in cap space to play with, and now seems like the time to strike, since they’ll have young stars to pay in the next few years.

They could have walked that free-agency path with Paul instead of Griffin; Paul is a more attractive magnet for the Banana Boat generation. They had chances to trade one cornerstone big man for picks and players who would fit with Paul. Teams called regularly about Griffin. The Clippers have explored DeAndre Jordan trades, though perhaps only one proposal — a deal which would have sent Jordan to Houston at last season’s trade deadline for Clint Capela, picks and players — ever gained semiserious traction, league sources say.

Elliott’s accuser also filed an incident report against Carl Davis Authentic Jersey Elliott for simple battery with the Aventura (Fla.) Police Department in Feb. 2016. That case was suspended, and Elliott was not charged. The league did not consider that case in its investigation because it happened before he was in the NFL.

In looking at Garoppolo’s possible landing points, though, San Francisco was one of the best-case scenarios. He’ll join an organization that is seriously committed to its coach and general manager, with the Niners having handed both Shanahan and Lynch six-year deals before this season.

Goodell admitted he didn’t get it right with Rice’s discipline, and the league revised its domestic violence policy as a result and instituted that six-game threshold for players who violate it.

Hopkins then took the game in his own hands with a blazing 72-yard touchdown from Watson that put the Texans up 38-34 with four-plus minutes to play. His handiwork was nearly overshadowed, though, by Fuller’s two-touchdown romp, giving the deep threat an NFL-leading seven scores off just 13 catches this season:

That bodes well for the fantasy scoring prospects of the Redskins

The Seahawks improved upon their pass rush totals against the Texans by posting a 33.3 percent PPR, but that was actually a lower number than the 38.7 PPR Houston had allowed in the five weeks prior to the this contest. The Seattle defense also did next to nothing to keep the Texans from posting the second-highest YPA of 2017 (13.4), second-highest yards per completion (19.3) and third-highest air yards per attempt (14.8) of the 2017 campaign.

Add it all up and it shows that the Seahawks defense may be the most overrated platoon in the NFL, Cardinals and Falcons (Seattle’s next three opponents), so be sure to keep that mind when weighing start/sit decisions in those contests.

“Think about it: It’s the first time since LeBron came back that we had that many new guys,” Thompson said. “It’s the first time, so it’s going to be a process. It’s going to take some time. It’s a long f—ing season. We’re going to play a hundred-and-some f—ing games. I’m not worried about it.”

Because the major league players were otherwise occupied, Team USA was made up of collegians — good collegians, such as Jason Varitek, Charles Johnson, Jason Giambi and an 18-year-old shortstop from Georgia Tech named Nomar Garciaparra. “It was like boys versus men,” says Garciaparra, a six-time All-Star who now broadcasts for SportsNet LA. “But it was an experience I’ll never forget.”

There still isn’t a clear timeline for Milos Teodosic Jersey return from injury

Adding an important player from another team who can actually contribute typically raises the question ‘Why didn’t the other team just keep him?’ There’s usually a long answer for that, but a huge salary is typically the crux of the situation.

The gigantic contract Dareus has is the biggest reason why the Bills sent him to Jacksonville. Brown’s discontent with his contract with the Texans is a huge part of what sent Authentic Mark Streit Jersey him to Seattle.

Garoppolo is cheap but due to become a free agent, and that was about to become a giant pain in the Patriots’ ass.

What do the Vikings have to worry about after winning four straight? Case Keenum really hasn’t been tested that much, and who knows if and when Sam Bradford or Teddy Bridgewater could return? Keenum is 2-2 against opponents who entered the game with a winning record, including a win over the Packers when Aaron Rodgers was injured.

There still isn’t a clear timeline for Milos Teodosic’s return from injury, which affords Rivers a good bit of short-term value amid an increase in usage and minutes. Over the past three games, Rivers is averaging 17.3 points, 2.3 steals and 3.7 3-pointers. The most important metric might just be the 34.2 minutes Rivers is netting per appearance over this sample, revealing an entirely worthy streaming option for the week ahead.

I have a feeling that everything is possible, Champ said. I’m not going to say they have it, but I’m just going to say they will find a way. Aside from a 4-1 loss to the Anaheim Ducks, they’ve been in every game they’ve played. In their other two losses, they still scored four goals.

Martinez, 53, served as the bench coach under manager Joe Maddon for the past decade, starting with Tampa Bay from 2008 through 2014. When Maddon became the Cubs’ skipper before the 2015 season, Martinez followed him there, where together the pair helped lead the Cubs to the 2016 World Series title, the team’s first championship in 108 years.

I am excited to bring Dave into our family, said Nats GM Mike Rizzo via statement. As we went through this process it became clear the type of manager we were looking for — someone who is progressive, someone who can connect with and communicate well with our players, and someone who embraces the analytical side of the game. We came away from the process feeling like there was absolutely no one better suited — who matched up to what this organization needs right now — than Dave.

Martinez has been a candidate Abry Jones Jersey for several managerial openings in recent years. After the 2014 season, he interviewed to be Washington’s skipper, but the job ultimately went to first-time manager Matt Williams.

Radulov scores OT winner, Stars edge Canucks 2-1

Despite firing 39 shots on net and generating multiple scoring chances late in the game, the Vancouver Canucks couldn’t quite break through against a Dallas team that’s dominated them lately.

After wearing No. 40 in his debut Monday for the Coyotes, Wedgewood opted to switch to No. 31. … D Niklas Hjalmarsson was out for the Coyotes with a lower-body injury sustained Monday at Philadelphia. … Detroit D Danny DeKeyser (sprained ankle) missed his 10th straight game.

Coyotes: Host the Buffalo Sabres on Thursday, their first home game since Oct. 21.

Red Wings: Begin a four-game road trip through Canada on Thursday at Ottawa, where they won 2-1 in a shootout on Oct. 7.

“We need to be more explosive,” Nittany Lions coach James Franklin said. “That game we were not explosive. We didn’t have the big plays we had in the past that, over the last two years, has been kind of our eraser for some of our issues.”

They had major issues on defense, surrendering 529 yards. Buckeyes quarterback J.T. Barrett completed 33 of 39 passes for 328 yards and four touchdowns.

“The best teams in the country have issues that they need to work on and get better, and we’re one of them,” Franklin said. “Do we need to get a more consistent pass rush on defense? Yes. We need to consistently be able to get more turnovers on defense. We need to more consistently stop the run.”

The Spartans are not as dynamic as Ohio State, but quarterback Brian Lewerke passed for a school-record 445 yards against Northwestern. Michigan State normally relies on its running game, led by LJ Scott (511 yards, four touchdowns).

“They’re a hard-nosed Big Ten football program,” Franklin said. “They’re built on defense, with a defensive head coach. And they’re a smash-mouth offense.”patriots_125
