Dion Jordan out 6-8 weeks after knee surgery

The Seattle Seahawks have a good news, bad news scenario on defensive end Dion Jordan.

Coach Pete Carroll revealed Thursday that Jordan underwent offseason knee surgery, which was categorized as a cleanup, and will be out 6-8 weeks, per NFL Network’s James Palmer.

Jordan, who signed a $1.9 million restricted free-agent tender in April, being down represents the bad news. The projected timetable of his recover, however, lands squarely at or near the start of training camp in late July, so the Seahawks should have Jordan available before the regular season.

The rivalry grew deeper in the 2000s, with former Met player and manager Joe Torre still at the helm of the Yankees, and former Yankee Willie Randolph taking the Mets managerial job in 2005.

Less than two weeks after Randolph’s firing in 2008, the teams split yet another, day-night, twin-park doubleheader. Mets first baseman Carlos Delgado took advantage in the first game by recording nine RBI, the most ever by an opposing player in the old Yankee Stadium.

The dwindling pool of unsigned draft picks is about to get even shallower.

According to a tweet from his agent, the Dolphins have signed sixth-rounder Cornell Amrstrong.

The cornerback from Southern Miss is the first of their picks to sign.

The Dolphins and Rams were the last two teams with all their picks unsigned, as the vast majority of picks are already taken care of.

A bounce-back year is needed, and Mariota’s pass-catchers will have to take that step with him, but don’t expect the former Heisman winner to make it back to the playoffs until that box is checked off. Lightning won’t strike twice, even in the AFC’s wild-card race.

Royals: RF Jorge Soler was held out of the starting lineup for a second straight day after fouling a pitch off his foot Friday, although Yost noted Soler is feeling better.

Athletics: Opening day starter Kendall Graveman continues to rehab in Arizona but Melvin doesn’t expect the right-hander back any time soon. … 2B Jed Lowrie was given the day off. Chad Pinder started in place of Lowrie. … Jake Smolinski was called up from Triple-A Nashville before the game. RHP Chris Bassitt was optioned to Triple-A Nashville.

Royals: Following a day off Monday, Kansas City returns home to host the Cincinnati Reds on Tuesday. RHP Ian Kennedy (1-6, 5.76 ERA) takes the hill for the Royals seeking to end an 11-start winless stretch.

In the lineup for the second consecutive day against his former team, Culberson hit a run-scoring single to right to tie the game at 1.

Wood (1-5) pitched better than his previous start in which he was pulled after allowing six runs in two innings at Colorado.

Wood allowed nine hits and four runs two earned in 4 2/3 innings Saturday. He struck out six and walked none but had to work out of jams much of his outing after putting so many runners on base.

It’s been a tough three starts for me, probably the toughest of my career, Wood said. It’s one of those things where you’re just grinding really hard. You’ve got to think one of these next few it will start to turn. There’s definitely some frustration for sure.

According to NFL Network, Irving has been dealing with an off-field issue and the team is trying to get him into camp this week.

The report also stated there are multiple layers to the situation, though it is unclear what they are at this point.

Will Kam Chancellor be on the field in 2018? ‘If my body says I can play, I’m playing’

For years, Kam Chancellor has been a stalwart on the back end of the Seattle Seahawks defense. Over the last several seasons, however, Chancellor has increasingly struggled to stay healthy. Last season, Chancellor suffered a serious neck injury that put his career in jeopardy. Chancellor’s injury occurred around the same time as that of Cliff Avril, who was released with a failed physical designation earlier this offseason.

I don’t see myself as old,Chancellor said. I feel Carlos Martinez Authentic Jersey like I’m still in my prime, so it’s not an age thing at all. It’s just a matter of structural issues in the neck and if they change or not.The Seahawks protected themselves in case Chancellor’s career is over by re-signing free-agent safety Bradley McDougald on a three-year deal this offseason.

McDougald had been widely expected to be a sought-after free-agent, but the Seahawks were able to secure his services on a slight discount before the market ever opened. Whoever winds up being the team’s starting strong safety will have the benefit of playing next to Earl Thomas on the back half of the defense, which should help that player have success.

My show was canceled and I was having difficult relationships with my BFFs, Union continued. It was everyone’s fault but my own and I literally found myself under my bed with my dog.

Union considered herself a troll and a hater until she came face to face with her issues and worked with a life coach to help her change her ways.

I hate the high road, Union said, laughing. It’s like getting on the 405 at 4 o’clock on a Friday. I get the attention back on me because I’m talking s–t about the hot girl.

Though the Bring It On star has evolved in her personal life, her friendships and her career, she admitted she was typically the problem in her relationships.

In Jacksonville, there are no issues.

Dareus played well last season for the Jaguars, and in his first offseason in Jacksonville, he’s drawing praise from coach Doug Marrone for his work ethic.

I’m very happy with the way he’s worked, the way he has come into camp, Marrone said, via Mike Kaye of First Coast News. I think those are things he has done a much better job of than what maybe he had done in the past. I can appreciate that and see that in him.

Marrone and Jaguars front office boss Tom Coughlin are known for believing in tough summer practices, but Dareus said he’s enjoying it.

I just want to do the best we can, Dareus said. We just push each other and let’s go. Give me what you got, I’ll give you what I’ve got and when you’re tired, just let me know and I’m right there to pick up where you left off and vice versa.

Youth Robert Covington Swingman Red Nike Jersey: NBA Philadelphia 76ers #33 Statement Edition
After the former Dolphins receiver ranked Parker third among the team’s current receivers behind Kenny Stills and Albert Wilson, Parker responded on Twitter.

Nobody cares about his opinion, Parker wrote.

Barring a surprise in which someone like Notre Dame guard Quenton Nelson falls to them at No. 9, it’s a good bet that the 49ers will use their first pick on a defensive player. While the Niners have needs on both sides of the ball, they need difference-makers regardless of position. The way the first round is shaping up, the Niners’ best options will mostly be defenders — linebackers such as Georgia’s Roquan Smith and Virginia Tech’s Tremaine Edmunds, defensive backs such as Ohio State’s Denzel Ward, Alabama’s Minkah Fitzpatrick and Florida State’s Derwin James or even a pass-rusher such as Boston College’s Harold Landry or UT San Antonio’s Marcus Davenport. If the 49ers stay put at No. 9, someone from that group is the best bet. Depending on whom the Niners draft in the first round, they would still have needs at corner, linebacker and pass-rusher, which means they could follow a similar script to 2017 when they used their first three picks on defenders. — Nick Wagoner

As explained by Andy Grimm of the Chicago Sun-Times, a 2017 lawsuit filed by a Packers fan who had purchased Bears season tickets could potentially open the door for a First Amendment-based attack on the anthem policy.

Russell Beckham argues that the Bears violated his First Amendment rights by preventing him from walking the sidelines while wearing Packers colors during a pregame event for season-ticket holders in 2016. Beckham, who represents himself in the lawsuit, has survived a preliminary effort by the Bears to have the Womens Jason McCourty Jersey case thrown out of court.

To ultimately win, Beckham may need to show that the Chicago Park District, which owns and operates Soldier Field, had a role in the team’s decision to prevent Beckham from wearing Packers gear on the sidelines. Which means that NFL players may need to show that local stadium authorities had a role in the rule that requires players to stand for the anthem.

Packers GM expects Aaron Rodgers to sign contract extension soon

Game Mens Quandre Diggs Jersey Aaron Rodgers could soon be signing a new contract with Green Bay.
Nike Men's LaDainian Tomlinson Elite Navy Blue Home Jersey - Los Angeles Chargers NFL #21
Packers general manager Brian Gutekunst said Thursday morning in an interview with NBC Sports that Rodgers and the team have made progress in their extension talks.

Both sides are working towards it and we’re confident we’ll come to an agreement soon,Gutekunst said in the interview.
Elite Cameron Wake Jersey
Rodgers signed a five-year, $110 million deal with Green Bay in April 2013. He is set to make about $42 million over the last two seasons of that contract, according to NBC Sports.

Gutekunst told NBC Sports that Rodgers and the team are waiting to see if other marquee quarterbacks sign new contracts before agreeing to an extension themselves. But, he said he believes the sides are headed for an agreement soon.

Kaaya, a more traditional pocket passer who was drafted by the Lions, will battle Walker, an athletic playmaker, to be the third quarterback.聽

But not even an element as embedded as the kickoff can be so sacred in a sport defined by perpetual change. Keep in mind the forward pass was illegal through the first few decades of football’s existence; so what exactly is this fabric of the game?

The kickoff elimination conversation is not about a safety-related slippery slope that could lead to an avalanche of rule changes 鈥?if such a slope even exits, one could argue the NFL is already sliding downhill, anyway.

League studies showed that concussions are five times more likely to occur on a kickoff than an offensive or defensive snap. Such an increased risk on a single play has forced the league to question whether Womens Tony Romo Jersey the kickoff can survive in a sport that’s under increasing pressure to eliminate unnecessary dangers.

Such pressure is not unprecedented.

Brandon Marshall, Doug Baldwin react strongly to President Trump’s comments on NFL anthem stance

Shortly after the NFL announced changes to its national anthem policy, President Donald Trump gave praise to the league while taking another jab at those who choose to protest, and it didn’t take long for some NFL players to react to his comments.

Seahawks wide receiver Doug Baldwin also had some strong words in response to Trump, calling the president an “idiot.” He added, “the NFL really missed it this time.”

“He’s an idiot, plain and simple,” Baldwin said, per The Seattle Times. “I mean, listen, I respect the man because he’s a human being first and foremost. But he’s just being more divisive, which is not surprising. It is what it is. But for him to say that anybody who doesn’t follow his viewpoints or his constituents’ viewpoints should be kicked out of the country. It’s not very empathetic, it’s not very American-like.”

Penny joins a backfield already populated by 2017 draft pick Chris Carson, 2016 selection C.J. Prosise, Mike Davis and J.D. McKissic. But none of those runners led the Seahawks in rushing last season. That honor belongs to quarterback Russell Wilson (586 yards).

I feel like how they run the same offense, it’s gonna be the same thing as San Diego State. Stretch plays, the inside zones, Penny told Ruiz. I know the other running backs, we all got to compete to do our job. It’s an amazing feeling. I love being here because I feel the same tradition as San Diego State of running the ball. They’re a run-oriented team. You got to stop the run, and if you stop the run, we’re got to throw the play action over you.

If Penny can replicate his SDSU production, the Seahawks will welcome it. Penny led the nation in rushing last season with 2,248 yards and 23 touchdowns.

For something closer to bang-bang, a foul will be called, akin to the penalty for hitting a defenseless receiver in the head/neck area. For something that entails more time for the player to line up and attack with his helmet, it will be both a penalty and an ejection.

It won’t be a penalty, as Vincent has confirmed, if the player lowers his helmet not to initiate impact but to brace for it. That could make the rule even harder to officiate, with players colliding their helmets and a real-time decision being made regarding whether one was initiating it and whether the other was bracing for it.
