Packers inactives: LBs Ahmad Brooks, Joe Thomas return vs. B

Příspěvekod Angel92 » 14 lis 2017 07:19

The Green Bay Packers made six players inactive against the Chicago Bears, including two starters already ruled out for Week 10.
Safety Morgan Burnett (groin) and offensive tackle Bryan Bulaga (torn ACL) are both inactive, as expected. They’ll be joined by rookie running back Devante Mays, rookie cornerback Donatello Brown, veteran defensive lineman Quinton Dial and rookie outside linebacker Chris Odom.
Linebackers Ahmad Brooks and Joe Thomas and right tackle Justin McCray are all active. Brooks hasn’t played since Week 5 because of a back injury. Thomas has been out since Week 4 after hurting his ankle in Green Bay’s win over Chicago. McCray injured his ankle on the final drive last week, but he’ll play and likely start at right tackle for Bulaga.
Dial is dealing with a chest injury and won’t play.
The Packers still have an open roster spot after releasing tight end Martellus Bennett, so only six inactive players were required. Bulaga hasn’t been replaced on the roster, although his spot will likely go to second-year offensive tackle Jason Spriggs next week. Spriggs was designated to return off injured reserve.
The Bears made starting linebacker Danny Trevathan inactive.

Adrian Colbert joins ranks of injured 49ers safeties

Příspěvekod Angel92 » 14 lis 2017 08:42

Like Jimmie Ward, Jaquiski Tartt and Eric Reid before him, Adrian Colbert suffered an injury that could force the 49ers safety to miss time.
Head coach Kyle Shanahan revealed on Monday that Colbert broke a bone in his thumb during the Niners’ Week 10 win over the New York Giants. The seventh-round pick in the 2017 Draft flashed impressive speed while making four tackles during the first start of his pro career.
That’s been the life cycle for the position this season: Impress coaches before sustaining an injury.
In Colbert’s case, though, he may be able to avoid missing games thanks to the fact he suffered a less severe injury than his fellow safeties and the bye week.
“We don’t believe he’ll be out too long,” Shanahan said. “… But, it’s something you have to get fixed right away. You don’t want to play with it or it could heal wrong.”
Colbert suffered the injury early in the first quarter, according to Shanahan: “It was extremely tough of him” to continue playing.
If Colbert isn’t able to suit up against Seattle, the 49ers will turn to Antone Exum Jr. — who was signed last week.

Tim Benz: All together now — Steelers, fans agree NFL games

Příspěvekod Angel92 » 15 lis 2017 02:34

Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger isn't the only one who hates Thursday night NFL games.
It seems like the fans do, too.
That's something for NFL owners to consider as they try to decide if they should give commissioner Roger Goodell a private plane, health care for life and $50 million a year.
Allegedly .
It appears the league's fans want less of its product. Not more.
Not more in terms of more often per week. And not more in terms of more often per season.
We'll get to that in a moment. First, let's get to a Big Ben “hot take.”
As the Steelers prepare for a Thursday night contest against the Titans, Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger ripped the existence of Thursday night games during his weekly radio show on 93.7 FM on Monday.
“It's miserable. It's terrible,” Roethlisberger said. “They've got to get rid of this game, I think. Just play on Mondays and Sundays. It's so tough on guys. You are beat up and banged up. It's a very violent, physical game we play.
“You have to give your body a chance to recover a little bit. Even over a week, you aren't fully recovered Sunday to Sunday.”
Roethlisberger is by no means the only player to speak out against Thursday night games. Offensive lineman Ramon Foster called them “widely hated” with locker room neighbor Vance McDonald standing over his shoulder nodding in the affirmative and echoing “WIDELY hated.”
Undoubtedly, the owners won't want to yield the revenue associated with broadcasting Thursday games just because the players hate playing in them.
I mean, come on. They are just players — right?
A rumored potential tradeoff when the next collective bargaining agreement gets debated in 2021 is owners might offer to drop Thursday games and two preseason games but instead play 18 regular-season games.
“Just no Thursday night games would be nice,” Roethlisberger said with a laugh Tuesday.
But that idea isn't exactly going over great with a lot of his teammates.
“Give me a Thursday any day over adding two more games,'' linebacker Arthur Moats said. “Adding two more games is going to be harsh.''
Said offensive lineman Chris Hubbard: “I like how it is now. Why change it? It's a short week. If you get a win, then maybe you get Friday through Sunday off. So that's another way to take care of your body.”
While there may be a debate about the Thursday issue in the Steelers locker room, there isn't much among the fans.
This is where the league might want to pay attention.
Because it seems like fans want less football, not more. Via Nielsen reports posted at, viewership for NFL games is down 5 percent from last year. And in a much less formal study via the magic of Twitter, I sent out a poll question to followers asking what they wanted from the NFL schedule. After 1,500 responses, only 6 percent wanted to see an 18-game season with Thursday night games.
Also, just 17 percent wanted to see an 18-game slate without Thursday games. That was the same amount of people who said to leave the schedule the way it is.
But a dominant 60 percent claimed they would like to see the NFL stay at 16 games while dropping Thursday games entirely.
In other words, when it comes to football right now, less is more.
I tend to agree with the masses on this one. The NFL has 99 problems, and supersaturation is one. Too much ancillary programming leading up to gamedays. And, frankly, too many gamedays as well.
Back in 2006, the NFL began Thursday football at Thanksgiving and through the end of the season with the “Run to the Playoffs” package.
Foster, who is a player representative, already might be in bargaining mode.
“Do Thursday games all the way until Week 8 or 9,'' Foster said. “That way you still get them. But you aren't oversaturating people.
“I'd rather play a Thursday night game in Week 4. Anything beyond that is pushing the envelope when it comes to health and recovery.”
OK. Not bad. But what about that idea of 18 games?
“I don't see it unless you are going guarantee every guy a million dollars every year,” Foster retorted.
That's going to be tough to manage, what with Goodell's new jet and all.
But if I was Goodell, I'd ask for a jet, too. And on it, I'd rather watch a movie than “Thursday Night Football.” Because the games are usually bad, and I get enough of it already.
Roethlisberger and the rest of the players are right. It's miserable.

Why T.J. Watt feels right at home chasing 'greatness' with S

Příspěvekod Angel92 » 15 lis 2017 03:17

PITTSBURGH -- The drafting of T.J. Watt has largely paid off for the Pittsburgh Steelers, whose first-round pick is tied for second among NFL rookies with four sacks.
But his all-around game has engendered the most optimism in the Steelers locker room as the team kicks off the season's second half Sunday at Indianapolis. Despite missing a game with a groin injury, he's in the top five on the team in tackles (28), passes defended and sacks, and he has one interception.
Perfecting his pass rush will take time. Mentality-wise, though, he seems to fit the description of what the Steelers (6-2) desire from a defender: insatiable drive. Linebackers coach Joey Porter cited Watt's visible disappointment after a leaping near-interception in zone coverage glanced off his fingers at Detroit in Week 8.
"That’s the natural competitor in him and I love him for having that," Porter said. "When you stop having that, then it’s not even fun for you as a player. He’s always going to have that competitive nature in him of always wanting more, and that’s what’s going to drive him to be great."
Watt was tasked with stabilizing the outside linebacker position opposite Bud Dupree while keeping James Harrison off the field. Harrison, at age 39, showed with his Week 6 sack in Kansas City that he's still effective. But it's clear the Steelers want the young Watt and Dupree to supplant him.
That those players couldn't beat backup Lions tackles for a sack was a bit curious. But overall, Watt's instincts and range have been assets.
Watt is taking a broader view of his career than just one game, or even the Steelers' No. 2-ranked scoring defense.
"That’s why I feel I fit so well here, because I’m always trying to chase greatness," Watt said. "Yeah, we put together a few good performances, but we’re always trying to look for that next level."
After the failed Jarvis Jones experiment, the Steelers couldn't afford to miss on Watt, the seventh outside pass-rusher taken in the draft. One question about Watt's game coming out of Wisconsin was whether he had the quick-twitch athleticism to bend the edge.
Porter isn't worried at all about Watt's physical abilities.
"He’s a better athlete than I expected when I got him, period," Porter said. "There’s stuff that he can do that ... it surprised other people. It doesn’t surprise me because I’ve been around him for a few months to see some of the stuff he does in practice."

Notre Dame Football: 3 reasons Irish will never make playoff

Příspěvekod Angel92 » 15 lis 2017 04:10

If you are a Notre Dame fan, the sky might feel like it’s falling after Miami beat down the Fighting Irish 41-8 on national television. I’ll give fans some comfort: at least the game wasn’t in South Bend.
With that being said, I’m going to give you a few reasons why Notre Dame won’t ever make the College Football Playoff due to their designation as an Independent.
3. Recruiting parity
Notre Dame is a prestigious school; the Irish have a rich history of winning football. As of late, they have been a good team. Besides the 2016 season, everything has been on the uptick for the Fighting Irish.
In the 1980s and 1990s, they were getting top recruit after top recruit. If you look at the history books, they snagged countless program-changing players from Tim Brown, Joe Montana, Rick Mirer (don’t base this off of the NFL, please), Jerome Bettis, Rocket Ismail, Ricky Watters and many others. Notre Dame was one of the top schools to go to and a lot of players dreamed of players for the Irish.
As of late, Brian Kelly has been reeling in quality classes to come play for the Fighting Irish, but the young men now are looking at Ohio State, Clemson and Alabama first before giving Notre Dame a chance. There’s not much they can do about it, it’s just a change in the times, those programs have it rolling right now and can pursued almost any young man to come to their school.
South Bend still has a top-tier program, but a lot of others have gained ground or surpassed the allure of Notre Dame.

Could Alabama or LSU alumni form a 'super team' in the NFL?

Příspěvekod Angel92 » 15 lis 2017 06:45

Philadelphia Eagles cornerback Jalen Mills said the current pro alumni of his alma mater, LSU, would "be a super team in the NFL" if brought together on one club.
Mills said on NFL Network's "Good Morning Football" that he calls LSU "NFLSU" because of all the pro football players coming out of Baton Rouge.
Tennessee Titans running back Derrick Henry was asked on a later program to give an Alabama response. The 2015 Heisman Trophy winner had no desire to compare alumni, but said of his alma mater: "I feel like we're a factory to the NFL. We run everything at Alabama just like the NFL, so when you get to the NFL, it's nothing new. It's everything that you learned at Alabama that they all prepared you for, and we have guys in the league that make a lot of plays that look like they have been in the NFL for a while when they get here."
Alabama has 38 players and LSU has 37 on current NFL active rosters. LSU has 11 players on practice squads and the various reserve lists, and Alabama has nine. Since an NFL team can use only 46 players in a game, each school would have enough alumni for a full squad if all its players were eligible.
But could either team fill out a team with its alumni on current NFL rosters, let alone form a super team?
If they had to play only defense, the answer would be yes. But LSU has a big hole on offense -- no quarterback. Alabama could fill all the positions, but its lack of specialists means the Crimson Tide always would go for it on fourth down.
Here's a position-by-position breakdown of the players from Alabama and LSU on current NFL rosters:

SEATTLE (AP) — In the grand scheme of what the Seattle Seahawks are trying to accomplish this season, a failed physical could end up becoming a huge benefit.
The Seahawks began taking inventory of their injury situation Friday, a day after a brutal 22-16 victory over Arizona kept Seattle on the heels of the Los Angeles Rams in the NFC West at 6-3. Yes, it was an important win. It was also a costly victory after cornerback Richard Sherman was lost for the season with a ruptured Achilles tendon in his right leg.
Sherman first injured the tendon a month ago against the Rams and it finally popped against the Cardinals. After never missing a game in his career due to injury, Sherman will now be a spectator the rest of the way.
That’s where a failed physical suddenly becomes so important. Cornerback Jeremy Lane was supposed to be a member of the Houston Texans at this point after being included in the trade where Seattle acquired left tackle Duane Brown. Except the trade had to be modified after Lane failed his physical with the Texans and returned to the Seahawks.
Lane will now play a significant role in how the Seahawks move forward without Sherman. Rather than having to scramble to find a veteran on the open market or put undersized nickel cornerback Justin Coleman in an unfamiliar role, the Seahawks can lean on Lane and his experience playing on the outside as Sherman’s replacement.
Lane was the starter opposite Sherman when the season began. Eventually, rookie Shaquill Griffin took Lane’s spot, precipitating the trade. But now it’ll be Lane, Griffin and Coleman as the primary cornerbacks.
“If it was anything I could play with, I would be out there,” Sherman said. “J-Lane, (Coleman) and the rook, Shaq (Griffin), they are all capable, and they will do a great job. I will stay in the room and make sure they get all the coaching points and give them everything I got.”
Sherman represents the second major loss this season for Seattle’s defense. Cliff Avril is on injured reserve with a neck injury suffered in Week 4 against Indianapolis and all indications are he will not return this season. Standout safety Earl Thomas has missed the past two games with a hamstring injury.
Seattle signed veteran Dwight Freeney to help make up for the loss of Avril. While former Seahawks cornerback Byron Maxwell is unsigned after being released by Miami, there may not be a similar immediate move for the secondary.
“At the end of the day, you have to continue to play our ball. We can’t dwell on what’s going on,” Griffin said. “You just know (Sherman’s) going to get back as soon as possible. We’re going to continue to prepare everybody else. Like the people that stepped up today, they’ll be ready for the next game.”
The Seahawks were battered in Thursday’s victory. On top of the loss of Sherman, several others — Brown, C.J. Prosise, Michael Wilhoite — left the game with injuries and didn’t return. Normally upbeat even in the most difficult circumstances, head coach Pete Carroll was noticeably somber after the victory.
At least Seattle will get extra rest. The Seahawks don’t play again until Nov. 20 when they host Atlanta.
NOTES: The NFL said Friday it was reviewing whether Seattle followed concussion protocol when QB Russell Wilson was told to leave the field after a hit in the third quarter. Wilson was on the sideline briefly and missed just one play. The team could be penalized if it is found in violation.

Who should replace Butch Jones on UT Vols' video board at Ne

Příspěvekod Angel92 » 15 lis 2017 08:32

Butch Jones is out as coach of the University of Tennessee football team. However, his image remains on the back of the 4,580-square foot Mitsubishi video board facing Neyland Drive.
There are three images on the back of the video board along with names of three sponsors. Jones, who was fired Sunday after almost five seasons as coach, is on the left with former coach Gen. Robert Neyland in the center, and former defensive end Reggie White on the right.
The images on the video board were switched on Oct. 2, 2014.
Previously the three images were, left to right, former quarterback Condredge Holloway, Neyland again in the center, and former coach Phillip Fulmer holding the national championship trophy won by the Vols in 1998.
When the new video board was installed in time for the 2009 season, the images, left to right, were a non-discrete player, a different image of Neyland, and players putting their hands on the "I will give my all for Tennessee today" sign.
So who should replace Jones when UT decides to make a switch? The Vols have a home game Saturday night against LSU on ESPN.
Former UT coach Lane Kiffin endorsed putting Fulmer's image back on the video board.

Second Virginia county bans hydraulic fracturing

Příspěvekod Angel92 » 15 lis 2017 09:13

A second Virginia county has banned hydraulic fracturing, the process of injecting water and chemicals deep into the ground to loosen trapped gas and oil.
The Free Lance-Star reports the Richmond County Board of Supervisors voted unanimously last Thursday to not allow any type of oil and gas drilling. The board's chairman, F. Lee Sanders, said the county's water supply was the primary impetus for the ban.
The county is bordered by the Rappahannock River, which advocacy group American Rivers ranked as the fifth-most endangered American river, citing fracking's threat to clean drinking water. A small portion of Richmond County is in the Taylorsville basin, where more than 84,000 acres (34,000 hectares) have been leased for possible drilling.
Augusta County became the first Virginia locality to ban fracking, in February.

Star receivers Dez Bryant, Julio Jones active

Příspěvekod Angel92 » 16 lis 2017 02:34

The Dallas Cowboys and Atlanta Falcons will have top receivers Dez Bryant and Julio Jones, respectively, active for the NFC matchup.
Bryant (knee/ankle) and Jones (sore ankle) missed practices on Wednesday and Thursday before returning on Friday.
Jones was not included on Atlanta's final injury report, while Bryant was listed as questionable.
The Cowboys are without kicker Dan Bailey (right groin), leaving Mike Nugent as the starter, and starting left tackle Tyron Smith (back/groin). Falcons linebacker Duke Riley (knee) is out and kicker Matt Bryant (calf) is active.
Rams linebacker Robert Quinn is sitting out for the first time this season after missing the past week of practice with an unspecified illness. Matt Longacre will start against Houston in place of Quinn, who has 2½ sacks.
San Francisco left tackle Joe Staley is back two weeks after breaking his orbital bone. Staley got hurt in Philadelphia on Oct. 29 and was expected to miss at least two games, but is back early to give a needed boost the Niners struggling offensive line against the New York Giants.
Niners rookie defensive lineman Solomon Thomas is out with a knee injury after being listed as questionable.
