Cheap Atlanta Falcons Jersey China

CHICAGO — The fear is that Bears wide receiver Kevin White broke his collarbone and will have to undergo season-ending surgery, league sources told ESPN NFL Insider Dan Graziano.

White exited Sunday’s 23-17 loss to the Atlanta Falcons at the 9:43 mark of the fourth quarter after catching a short pass for no gain. The former first-round pick immediately walked off the field following the play and went into the Bears’ sideline injury tent for further examination. White was later taken to the locker room and officially ruled out for the remainder of the game.
White was observed after the game in a sling and holding his wrist to stabilize the injured side of his body. He left Soldier Field in an ambulance.

White, the seventh overall pick of the 2015 NFL draft, appeared in just four regular-season games in his first two seasons in the league because of two fractures in his leg.

Last year, White was placed on injured reserve after he suffered a severe high ankle sprain that resulted in a fractured fibula in his left leg in Week 4. As a rookie, White developed a stress fracture in his left shin. At the time of that injury, he had a steel rod inserted into his tibia to stabilize the left leg.

“When you’ve been through that and he’s done it, and it’s happened again, it’s happened again, done it, and it sucks,” Bears tight end Zach Miller said. “You can’t control that stuff. Kevin is such a good football player. He’s had unfortunate stuff happen to him early in his career. It won’t derail the kid. It won’t. I mean, if I can do it, he can do it.

“I mean, I’m from a little town of 300 people and came from Division II and have been in this thing for a long time. Bounced back from a lot of injuries. Kevin can do the same exact thing. Hopefully it’s not terrible. That’s a blow to our football team. It’s a blow to him, but it’s a blow to us, too. He’ll bounce back. He’s got to. He doesn’t have a choice.”

With Cameron Meredith already on injured reserve with torn knee ligaments, the Bears hoped that White would emerge as the club’s No. 1 wide receiver.

White finished the game with two receptions for 6 yards on four targets.

Cheap Washington Redskins Jersey China

ASHBURN, Virginia — There won’t be any decision for Washington Redskins quarterback Kirk Cousins to make. If his wife goes into labor and the Redskins have a game, Cousins will be playing.

Cousins’ wife, Julie, is due with their first child on Sept. 18 — a day after the Redskins play at the Los Angeles Rams.

Redskins QB Kirk Cousins doesn't plan to stop playing no matter when his first child is born.

Redskins QB Kirk Cousins doesn’t plan to stop playing no matter when his first child is born.

The Redskins host the Philadelphia Eagles on Sept. 10, but at least in that case he’d be near the hospital and could drive there after the game. But if they play in Los Angeles and she goes into labor, he’ll need to make a cross-country flight to join her.
“If I’m available, I’ll be there,” Cousins said. “Or if we’re in L.A. or playing Philly, it is what it is and I’ll get there as fast as I can.”

Last season, Colt McCoy’s wife had her baby induced six days before her due date of Thanksgiving — and the Redskins were playing at Dallas. Julie Cousins did not want to have their baby induced, and the couple was comfortable with that decision.

“She’s really supportive,” Kirk Cousins said, “and knew from day one that she would rather let the baby come when it comes and we’ll react accordingly.”

The couple revealed via social media in March that they would be having a boy.

Cousins, 29, will enter his third season as the Redskins’ starting quarterback — and his second playing under the franchise tag. He has thrown for club-record yardage totals each of the past two seasons, including 4,917 yards.

Cheap Washington Redskins Jersey For Sale

Washington Redskins safety Su’a Cravens told some within the organization this weekend that he is planning to retire, but a meeting with the team’s coaches and executives has changed his mind for now, according to league sources.

Cravens, 22, who was nursing a knee injury, was put on the team’s exempt/left squad list later Sunday. His roster spot was taken by offensive tackle T.J. Clemmings, who was claimed off waivers from the Minnesota Vikings.
Cravens informed the other defensive backs in a group chat Saturday night that he was going to retire and then exited the session by saying “Peace out,” a source said. They were upset with him and what they heard.

Cravens is one of the league’s youngest players, a second-round pick last year, and is struggling with his transition to the NFL. Washington officials want to help him through his issues rather than have him walk away from the game, which would make him one of the youngest NFL players to date to retire.

One person who had played with Cravens in the past and considers him a friend said he was not surprised when he heard the news Sunday. He added that you never know if a player loves the game until he faces adversity.
An article on SI.com this spring stated that Cravens left teammates wondering about his desire by not pushing through harder with a bruised biceps injury. In training camp, linebacker Will Compton was miked up for CSN Washington and was heard prodding Cravens about his motivation for being on the field. Compton told him, “I haven’t felt it from you. The last two [practices], you haven’t gave me anything.”

Compton wanted to know what helped him push through the tough part of camp and Cravens later told him, “I can’t fake it, though.”

Washington did not respond to questions about the safety.

Su'a Cravens surprised the Redskins this weekend by informing the team of his plans to retire before being talked out of the decision. N

Su’a Cravens surprised the Redskins this weekend by informing the team of his plans to retire before being talked out of the decision. N

“Shocking,” Redskins safety D.J. Swearinger said upon hearing the news. “He has to handle what he needs to handle, whether mental or with his family. We’re here to support him. That’s tough. I’m not in those shoes, so I can’t speak on him, so whatever he’s dealing with I’m praying for him and hopefully he’ll be back.

“If it’s family issues, personal issues, whatever he’s dealing with, I’m supportive. Hopefully he’ll deal with what he has to deal with and be back out here.”

Linebacker Mason Foster said he was surprised by the news.

“Definitely. He’s a great player, a great person,” Foster said. “People have lives outside of football and sometimes you have to handle that first. Hopefully he gets that resolved and comes back and helps us win games this year. I’ll try to talk to him later on, tell him I’m praying for him, but I’m going straight to the iPad and watching Philly.”
“You never know what’s in anyone’s life so you make sure that’s fine first and foremost before you get back to your job,” said Redskins corner Josh Norman.

“This game tests your wits in every form, every facet of your body, your mentals. Everything. If you’re not ready to come back and play and give it your all and your heart isn’t in it, then you’ll seriously go out there and get hurt.”

After practice, multiple players said coach Jay Gruden addressed the players about Cravens’ situation and said when discussing it with the media to stay focused on the season opener. Gruden did not address the media Sunday, but will do so Tuesday.

Several days ago, a source close to Cravens said he was anxious to return from his injury and that he was confident he’d be ready for the opener against the Philadelphia Eagles. Over the last few weeks, there had been some unease in the building about Cravens’ missed time and what the team could expect from him. Indeed, the Washington Post reported that he had been talking to some members of the coaching staff over the last few weeks about retiring.

Cheap Teddy Bridgewater Jersey

Quarterback Teddy Bridgewater, one year removed from a horrific knee injury that some thought would end his career, is “all-in, trying to get ready to play,” Vikings coach Mike Zimmer said Tuesday.

Bridgewater is rehabbing daily at the team’s practice facility, and Zimmer said the quarterback has “progressed a lot.”

“I don’t watch him every single day because he’s over there off to the side while we’re practicing,” Zimmer said. “But the reports I get are all positive. And he knows where he’s at and where he’s got to get to. I think he’s progressing well.”
On Aug. 30, 2016, Bridgewater dislocated his knee and tore several ligaments, including the ACL, when he went down during a noncontact drill at practice.

The injury ended a 2016 season that had been full of promise. In 2015, Bridgewater had led the Vikings to their first division title since 2009 and had been selected to the Pro Bowl. He led the league in completions in the red zone.
If Bridgewater starts the season on the physically unable to perform list, he would be eligible to come off after six weeks.

When asked what Bridgewater would have to show to be able to come off the PUP list, Zimmer said, “He’s got to be able to protect himself on the field and be able to do the movements that are required by his position.”

“When he’s there, he’ll practice,” Zimmer added.

Zimmer also talked about the team’s move in the aftermath of Bridgewater’s injury, trading a first-round pick in 2016 to acquire Sam Bradford from the Eagles. Despite a 5-0 start, the Vikings finished 8-8, third in the NFC North, and missed the playoffs.

Zimmer said he believes the trade for Bradford was a good move.

Vikings QB Teddy Bridgewater is working his way back after he dislocated his knee and tore several ligaments, including the ACL, during a noncontact drill at practice on Aug. 30, 2016.

“I still think the trade was the right trade for us,” he said. “Obviously, it was a freak thing that happened with Teddy, but I don’t know, I guess you always handle it the best way you can and try to figure it out.”

The Vikings will start the season with Bradford, backed up by Case Keenum, who was signed in the offseason. In May, the team declined the fifth-year option on Bridgewater’s contract, so he’ll be a free agent after the 2017 season.

indianapolis colts schedule 2017

PITTSBURGH — Steelers wide receiver Martavis Bryant says he took an “intentional” late hit from Indianapolis Colts safety Matthias Farley while on the ground during Saturday’s 19-15 loss.

While discussing how he bulked up in the offseason to prepare for NFL physicality, Bryant referenced a screen play early in the second quarter that resulted in a gang tackle. Cornerback Vontae Davis brought Bryant down by his right ankle, and with his left knee down, Farley flew in for an upper-body hit.
“I feel better about my body and my ability on the field. I don’t have to worry about taking so many injuries from different plays like yesterday where he tried to hurt me,” Bryant told ESPN. “Just making sure my body feels good and I stay in shape.”

Asked about the nature of the hit, Bryant said it was “definitely intentional.”

“I was already on the ground. It is what it is,” Bryant said. “My foot was already bent. … [Farley] just came in and hit me.”

Replays showed Bryant getting bent backward on the play, but he got up on his own.

Bryant, who is under conditional reinstatement after missing all of 2016 for multiple drug offenses, lost 3 yards on the play and finished the game with 23 yards on five catches.

He is the Steelers’ starting No. 2 receiver after recording 15 total touchdowns in his first 21 NFL games.

discount new york giants jerseys

New York Giants coach Ben McAdoo wasn’t willing to reveal a detailed timetable on injured wide receivers Odell Beckham Jr. and Brandon Marshall, who were both knocked out of Monday’s 10-6 preseason loss to the Cleveland Browns.

“Odell has an ankle [injury]. We’ll see how he responds to treatment,” McAdoo said Tuesday during a conference call. “Brandon has a shoulder [injury], and again we just have to see how these two guys respond to treatment.”

Asked if Beckham had a high ankle sprain or a low ankle sprain, McAdoo again decided to play it coy.
“It’s an ankle,” he said.

Initial X-rays on both players were negative. McAdoo said both players will be evaluated day by day based on how they respond to treatment.

McAdoo also didn’t directly answer a question about how Beckham felt Tuesday after he took a hard hit to the leg from Browns cornerback Briean Boddy-Calhoun.

“He’s going through treatment. Got a scan. Has an ankle,” McAdoo said.

Even though Beckham was optimistic after the game, it wasn’t reassuring listening to McAdoo the following day with the regular-season opener against the Dallas Cowboys 19 days away. Beckham was “very sore” on Tuesday morning, a source told ESPN.

McAdoo was slightly more expansive on Marshall, who was injured after being exposed on a hit from Browns rookie safety Jabrill Peppers in the first half.

“We just had him in here for a treatment session, and we’ll take it day to day,” McAdoo said.

Beckham left the game early in the second quarter. He walked off the field and jogged into the locker room before hunching into a ball in the hallway of FirstEnergy Stadium. Beckham returned to the sideline out of his uniform and in a hoodie for the second half and jogged into the locker room after the contest.

The Giants’ next preseason game is Saturday night against the New York Jets. McAdoo doesn’t intend to alter his plan with the Giants starters despite losing several key players to injury against the Browns.

“I think you have to play the game to get better at the game,” McAdoo said.

McAdoo said after the game Monday that Beckham would play if he was ready.

san francisco 49ers roster

 NEW YORK — A former New York City police officer, whose claims of police corruption in the 1970s were chronicled in an Al Pacino movie, joined dozens of current and former officers Saturday at a rally in support of getting quarterback Colin Kaepernick a job in the NFL.
Kaepernick, the former starting quarterback of the San Francisco 49ers, became a controversial figure last year after he refused to stand for the national anthem in what he called a protest against oppression of people of color.

He opted out of his contract in March and became a free agent, but so far no NFL teams have signed him for the upcoming season.

The gathering in Brooklyn featured about 75 mostly minority officers wearing black T-shirts reading “#imwithkap.”

One exception was retired officer Frank Serpico, whose exploits were featured in the 1973 film “Serpico.”

He admitted to not being a football fan but said he felt it was important to support Kaepernick for his stance.

“He’s trying to hold up this government, up to our founding fathers,” said Serpico, 81.

Sgt. Edwin Raymond, who said he was heading to work after the rally, spoke of the need for racial healing in the country.

“Until racism in America is no longer taboo, we own up to it, we admit it, we understand it and then we do what we have to do to solve it. Unfortunately we’re going to have these issues,” he said.

Marquise Goodwin paused: out of the track a year ago, so there is no information to the USADA

The United States Anti-Doping Agency suspended Marquise Goodwin on Tuesday for one year for failing to provide his whereabouts for drug testing, but the San Francisco 49ers wide receiver said in a statement that he is no longer competing in track and field.

USADA said in a statement that Goodwin received three whereabouts failures in a 12-month period. USADA requests the information from a select group of athletes for out-of-competition drug testing.

USADA said Goodwin’s suspension began on April 1, the date of his third whereabouts failure.

Goodwin, however, said in a statement provided by the 49ers that he decided to stop competing in track and field so he could focus on his football career and therefore did not supply his whereabouts information to USADA.

“Never in my life have I failed a test,” he said. “I have never been opposed to testing and, in fact, have always been compliant with each and every protocol and policy associated with my competitive career in track and field. More than a year ago, I decided to cease competing in the sport in order to concentrate 100 percent on my NFL career. Therefore, I discontinued all practices associated with competing in track and field, including submitting my ‘Whereabouts’ information.

Marquise Goodwin says he has given up on competing in track and field so he can focus fully on his NFL career.

Marquise Goodwin says he has given up on competing in track and field so he can focus fully on his NFL career.

“It appears that because I did not inform USADA of my plans, my name was inadvertently included in their 2017 testing pool. I greatly appreciate the support of the San Francisco 49ers and the National Football League as I work to clarify this matter,” he said in the statement.

The 49ers confirmed that Goodwin had given up his track and field career in order to fully concentrate on football. The team also said that the NFL will not discipline Goodwin under its policy against performance-enhancing drugs.

“Marquise informed our organization quite some time ago that he has no intentions of competing in track and field and has been entirely focused on his football career for more than a year. We have been in touch with the League office regarding this matter, and understand that Marquise will not be subject to discipline under the NFL Policy on Performance-Enhancing Substances as a result of USADA’s decision,” the team said in a statement.

Goodwin, 26, failed to qualify to compete at the 2016 Summer Olympics, when he finished seventh in the men’s long jump at the U.S. Olympic team trials in Eugene, Oregon, last July. He jumped 27 feet, ¾ inches, more than a foot short of Jeffrey Henderson’s winning jump of 28 2¼ inches.

Goodwin, who was with the Buffalo Bills when he competed in the trials, signed with the 49ers as a free agent, receiving a two-year, $6 million contract with $4.45 million guaranteed.

After the playoffs, Martavis Bryant returned to Steelers

LATROBE, Pa. — Martavis Bryant is not yet back to his old, explosive self after his first padded training camp practice in two years. But he vows to be very soon.

Bryant, who’s under conditional NFL reinstatement but was cleared for preseason work last week, said after Sunday’s session that he’s still getting his timing and football conditioning down. Bryant and quarterback Ben Roethlisberger missed on a few potential connections but got a big gain over the middle late in practice.

“I’m working on getting ready — I’ve still got a lot of work to do,” Bryant told reporters. “When the time comes, I’ll be ready to go … It’s been a long time. I’m just happy to be out here with my brothers.”

Both Bryant and the Steelers had expected the playmaker to start training camp with the rest of the team July 28, but the league hadn’t graduated the receiver to preseason work as part of his return from multiple drug violations and suspensions that cost him all of 2016.

Martavis Bryant, who's under conditional NFL reinstatement but was cleared for preseason work last week, said after Sunday's practice that he's still getting his timing and football conditioning down, but "when the time comes, I'll be ready to go."

Martavis Bryant, who’s under conditional NFL reinstatement but was cleared for preseason work last week, said after Sunday’s practice that he’s still getting his timing and football conditioning down, but “when the time comes, I’ll be ready to go.”

Bryant spent the first two weeks of camp attending meetings and catching passes on an auxiliary field during practices. Bryant said he has “no clue” what the holdup was, but but said he has done everything the league has asked of him.

Bryant, who has 15 touchdowns in 21 NFL games, received a warm reception from Steelers fans attending practice at St. Vincent College, but Bryant said if there’s any resentment from fans, he’s not sweating it.

“I’m out here to get better with my teammates and play football — outside of that, I’m not worried about it,” he said.

Bryant is confident the league will clear him for regular-season action, as he plans to “just handle my business, do what I’m supposed to do, maintain my sobriety.”

The Steelers’ quartet of Bryant, Roethlisberger, Antonio Brown and Le’Veon Bell (who’s under the franchise tag and hasn’t reported to camp) has spent a total of 21 minutes of game action together since 2015. Injuries and suspensions have affected the group.

Bryant, who said he recently had a “great conversation” with Roethlisberger to clear up any misunderstandings about his time away from the team, is expecting a big return for the big four.

“We’ve definitely got something special,” Bryant said. “The more work we put in, the better off we’ll be … When Le’Veon gets back, we’re going to put him to work as well.”

Martavis Bryant was cleared by the NFL to participate in the Steelers preseason game

LATROBE, Pa. — The NFL has cleared wide receiver Martavis Bryant to participate in preseason practices and games, according to the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Bryant is still under conditional reinstatement and hasn’t been cleared for regular-season games, but Bryant has done what the league has asked of him since serving a yearlong suspension for multiple drug violations.

“[Bryant] will continue to be evaluated as to his readiness to participate in regular-season activities under the terms of his conditional reinstatement,” Steelers general manager Kevin Colbert said in a statement.

Bryant participated in offseason work but was benched for training camp practices until now. Recently, he has been working out on an auxiliary field during those sessions.

Bryant is unlikely to play in Friday’s preseason opener against the New York Giants since he hasn’t logged a practice and the team travels on Thursday.

Bryant is an enormous talent, scoring 15 touchdowns in his first 21 NFL games. He has also missed 20 games for drug violations. Bryant said in the spring that he has been clean for a year and has redirected his life.
