Cheap Green Bay Packers Jersey Near Me

GREEN BAY, Wis. — Aaron Rodgers has been medically cleared.

The Green Bay Packers quarterback made it official on Tuesday night, on the eve of the first practice in advance of Sunday’s game at Carolina. Rodgers made the announcement in an Instagram post after a long day of discussion with medical personnel led by team physician Dr. Pat McKenzie.
One day earlier, Packers coach Mike McCarthy said Rodgers underwent tests to determine how much his surgically repaired right collarbone had healed.

“It is now in the evaluation stage,” McCarthy said late Monday afternoon. “Dr. McKenzie is reviewing it. There’s a number of medical opinions that will be involved in a decision, so at this time, I do not have a clean decision for you or an update. That’s where it stands.”

The matchup with the Panthers is the first game for which Rodgers is eligible to return, according to injured reserve rules, since he broke his right collarbone against the Minnesota Vikings on Oct. 15, when Anthony Barr hit him and landed on him following a pass.
It had been an on-schedule recovery for Rodgers following his Oct. 19 surgery in California, where he had screws and plates inserted into his right clavicle. Rodgers was placed on injured reserve the next day, ensuring he would have to sit out at least eight games. He returned to practice on Dec. 2, the day he turned 34.

From the first time he was seen doing some drills off to the side a month ago to his first public throwing session before the Nov. 26 game in Pittsburgh to running the scout team in practice last week, Rodgers has impressed his coaches and teammates along the way. Clay Matthews even joked that Rodgers looked so good during the rehab process that the Packers shouldn’t have put him on injured reserve.

“Well if he comes back, like I’ve been saying, arguably the best quarterback in the league, back to your team, everyone is going to get better,” Matthews said after Sunday’s overtime win at Cleveland. “Not only him being out there, but also the shot in the arm as we talk about him coming back. Watching him in practice and what he’s been able to do these past couple weeks, getting more and more reps in practice and throwing on the pads, I think it’s a good sign. I’m not going to speak on his behalf, but we sure hope he’s ready and if he is, we’re going to expect the Aaron of old.”

Rodgers was off to one of his best starts before his injury at Minnesota. Through five weeks, he led the NFL in touchdown passes (13) and had thrown just three interceptions. He engineered a comeback victory in overtime to beat the Bengals at home in Week 3 and did it again with a last-minute touchdown pass to Davante Adams at Dallas two weeks later to lead the Packers to a 4-1 start.
The Packers lost at Minnesota when Brett Hundley took over following Rodgers’ injury, but Hundley won three of the next seven games to keep the Packers alive in the playoff race at 7-6.

“My No. 1 thought going into it was keep our hopes alive to make the playoffs and we’re still in it,” Hundley said.

Rodgers missed seven games when he broke his left collarbone in 2013, and the Packers went 2-4-1 in his absence. He did not undergo surgery that time and returned for the regular-season finale at Chicago, a game the Packers had to win to make the playoffs. Rodgers threw the game-winning touchdown pass to Randall Cobb in the final minute to win the NFC North at 8-7-1.

“We’ve got a chance,” Packers left tackle David Bakhtiari said. “We know what the magic number is. We still have everything in front of us, so when he comes back, we’re in playoff football. We’ve already talked about that, and these games matter. It’s go time.”

Cheap Indianapolis Colts authentic jerseys

Hall of Fame coach Tony Dungy said Monday that Indianapolis Colts owner Jim Irsay has said that quarterback Andrew Luck’s injury is “inside his head.”

Dungy made the comment during a live look-in at Dan Patrick’s radio show during its television simulcast on the Audience Network.

“I don’t know what’s going on there, I really don’t,” Dungy said during the look-in. “Is he going to play? Jim Irsay made a comment about six weeks ago, ‘You know, it’s inside his head now.’”
Patrick followed up by asking the former Colts coach: “Wait, it’s inside Luck’s head?”

“Yeah, he said that I guess when I was up there for Peyton’s [Manning's] ceremony,” Dungy said.

Dungy on Tuesday clarified with ProFootballTalk.com that Irsay didn’t make the comments to him privately.

“I never had a conversation with Jim Irsay,” Dungy told the website. “I never said I had a conversation with Jim Irsay.”

The only time Irsay has publicly talked about Luck needing to overcome mental hurdles, however, was on Aug. 31, following the Colts’ final preseason game, when he addressed approximately 10 to 15 reporters.

“It’s a great question, because it’s been said before by one of the greatest athletes and competitors who’ve played any sport — the quote was this: ‘These games, all games, are played on a four-inch field between your ears,’” he said that night. “That’s where it’s at. You have to be able to deal with this, not only physically, but mentally. I have no doubt that Andrew Luck, the person we know that he is, he’s going to come through this thing — and he and I have had long talks about it — not just as good as he was, but a better quarterback. When is the question. That timetable is gonna be more on, really, the football gods and Andrew’s gut feeling on how he’s feeling,”

The Colts honored Manning last month by unveiling a statue of him outside Lucas Oil Stadium on Oct. 7 and retiring his No. 18 jersey at halftime of their game against the San Francisco 49ers on Oct. 8.

Luck had surgery in January to repair a torn labrum in his right shoulder. He practiced multiple times last month before being shut down and given a cortisone shot. When the soreness in his shoulder didn’t subside, Luck was placed on injured reserve by the Colts last week.
“The consensus from all the doctors is to continue rehab, to be patient and continue rehab,” Colts general manager Chris Ballard said last week. “The shoulder is subjective and after a surgery everybody’s different, everybody rehabs at a different way. So we’re going to shut his throwing down and we’re going to continue to rehab. We’re going to continue hard rehab.”

Luck originally injured his shoulder during the 2015 season in Week 3 at Tennessee. He missed two games because of his shoulder and then missed the final seven games of that season because of a lacerated kidney. Luck missed a game last season with a concussion and all of this season with the shoulder injury.

Cheap San Francisco 49ers Jersey UK

Former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick has been shopping his story to book publishers in recent weeks, sources told ESPN.

Kaepernick is being represented by agent Carlos Fleming, who also represents Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton and tennis players Venus Williams and Nick Kyrgios.

The New York Post reported Tuesday that Kaepernick already had signed a book deal with Random House, but a source told ESPN that no deal is in place.

Sources told ESPN that the Kaepernick team strategy was to wait until the first month of the NFL season had passed before considering his options. Once September went by without any team signing him, Kaepernick took two actions: He sued the NFL and shopped his story to publishers.

Kaepernick started protests during the national anthem last season, when he refused to stand for it during a preseason game to protest racial inequality and police brutality. Other players across the NFL have followed suit, and the topic has been a major storyline in the sport.

Kaepernick, meanwhile, has remained unsigned. He has filed a grievance under the collective bargaining agreement for collusion against the owners, saying they and the league “have colluded to deprive Mr. Kaepernick of employment rights in retaliation for Mr. Kaepernick’s leadership and advocacy for equality and social justice and his bringing awareness to peculiar institutions still undermining racial equality in the United States.”
