Aaron Rodgers Jersey injury update: Packers QB to undergo surgery

Monday didn’t bring any positive news for Packers fans.

After losing Aaron Rodgers to a broken right collarbone in Sunday’s loss to the Vikings, Green Bay coach Mike McCarthy announced Monday that the veteran quarterback will need surgery and likely be out for the season.

Kyler Fackrell Limited Jersey While stressing that the emphasis is on getting Rodgers better, McCarthy also made it clear that Brett Hundley is the team’s starting quarterback and Joe Callahan is the backup after being signed to the active roster from the practice squad earlier Monday.

Seferian-Jenkins was headed to the end zone when he briefly bobbled the ball before falling into the pylon. He landed out of bounds with the ball securely in his grasp and the play was initially ruled a touchdown. Officials ruled following a replay review that Seferian-Jenkins fumbled the ball out of bounds for a touchback, negating the score and giving the ball to New England.

It was a head-scratching call and one Jets receiver Jermaine Kearse described as BS.

Controversy aside, Brady’s record as a starter is phenomenal. For Manning to reach 200 total wins, he had 92 losses. Favre’s teams lost 123 times in 322 games. Brady’s 212 total victories have come with just 63 losses. His Patriots are now 187-54 during the regular season with him at quarterback.

Even with the record, Brady was not impressed.

I wish we would have done better, but we won, he said after the game. With a game like this, 24-17, some good plays we made, a lot we left out there. We could have won 50-0 and it would be the same thing. It’s just about getting a win and finding a way to win each week.

The big question is what kind of player will Smart eventually be?

These outings, far more than the 14-pitch innings that Miller or Allen work in the regular season, are exhausting. They’re exhausting the day of, and they can be prohibitively exhausting for the next day or days. The pitch count watch is back!

We’ve seen some great, potentially series-changing plate appearances this postseason, which had the potential to matter not just in the moment but in the innings and days afterward. In Game 1 of the Yankees-Indians ALDS, New York DH Chase Headley faced Miller with one out and nobody on in the eighth inning. The Yankees trailed by four runs; they were 97 percent likely to lose, and even a home run by Headley wouldn’t change that figure much. But Headley worked Miller to a full count and fouled off six two-strike pitches, including five more or less perfect sliders:

What happened? With two other quarterbacks absent (Derek Anderson and Brady Quinn), Dorsey started three games for the 2008 Browns before getting injured himself. He was released by the Browns after the season by new head coach Eric Mangini.

He covets his experience and ballhandling abilities off the bench but has also said the Celtics must be flexible, and there could be matchups in which Smart makes sense with the first unit.

Is he the sort of player that can start opposite Kyrie Irving in Boston’s backcourt or will he live in that Sixth Man, energy-giving role?

Tilman Fertitta, who bought the Houston Rockets in September, says that nothing compares to owning a hometown team, especially walking into “this situation with James Harden and Chris Paul.”ravens_132

Pittsburgh had running back Jerome Bettis Jersey and coach Bill Cowher

Hines Ward thinks he knows exactly what the Steelers’ problem is, and it has everything to do with the team’s leaders.

The talent is there, but if you have a lot of ‘me guys’ out there, you’re not going to get to where you want to get, Ward told 93.7 The Fan in Pittsburgh (via the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette). Someone has to take the leadership role.

When Ward was drafted by the Steelers in 1998, Pittsburgh had running back Jerome Bettis and coach Bill Cowher. When those men spoke, teammates listened. Right now, the Steelers have a lot of guys talking that may not be listening to each other.

I mean, we ironed out everything that we needed at this time, Prescott said.

Jones made headlines Sunday when he said players must stand for the anthem or be benched. He said he was fine with the demonstration the Cowboys did in Week 3, in which they kneeled before the anthem, but stood arms linked during the actual song.

Garrett said he knows players are more than football machines and that they are trying to figure out the proper balance between their jobs and activism.
Bradley McDougald Mens Jersey
I think like a lot of things in life, a lot of people say, ‘just focus on football,’ Garrett said. But as we all know in our lives, there’s a lot of other things going on in our lives. So, sometimes as a player, a coach, as a football team, you have to focus on this particular thing to address it, to solve it, to move on, so you can get back to the business of football. And that happens with our players and our coaches each and every day — situations they have with their families, whether they’re health concerns or some of the off-field issues that we all deal with in our lives.

Sometimes you have to focus on those things so you can get back to the business of focusing on football. I think our team’s done a really good job on that.

Leon Hall Jersey signs with 49ers

Veteran cornerback Leon Hall signed with the San Francisco 49ers on Tuesday.
Mens Kyle Juszczyk Jersey
Hall, 32, played last season for the New York Giants after spending the first nine seasons of his career with the Cincinnati Bengals.
Limited Mens Delon Wright Jersey
He had one interception and two passes defensed in 12 games (two starts) last season. He has 27 interceptions and 114 passes defensed in 133 career games.

You see both sides of this, even on Sunday. Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce left the game with a concussion. He signed his extension in 2016. Watt’s teammate Whitney Mercilus tore a pectoral muscle and is out for the season. He has two years left (non-guaranteed) on a four-year, $26 million contract and was hoping to position himself to cash in with a big extension. Go back to Week 1, when Jaguars wide receiver Allen Robinson tore his ACL in the first game of his free-agent year.

It’s a rough line of work, one of the roughest, and each week brings fresh and painful reminders of how fleeting it all is. The next time one of these guys gets a big contract extension, remember what an accomplishment that is in this league.

But now that Watt has had consecutive seasons ended by injury, his 2014 extension looks far more worthy of respect. By the end of this season, he’ll have made $43 million over the past four seasons, and his current circumstances illustrate the sad fact that he might have cost himself millions by not waiting.

Going against the Patriots’ sieve-like defense this week is an added plus. They’ve allowed at least 60 receiving yards to at least one of their opponents’ tight ends in each of their past three games. They’ve also surrendered four touchdowns to tight ends this season. Seferian-Jenkins is all but guaranteed for a top-10 finish this week, so get him before it’s too late. — Daube

Browns bench DeShone Kizer Jersey, immediately score but still lose

DeShone Kizer was part of two turnovers in the first half against the Jets. He stayed on the sideline for the second half.

Browns coach Hue Jackson benched Kizer after halftime with his team trailing 3-0. Kevin Hogan started the third quarter and led a 10-play, 75-yard scoring drive on his first series.

At 5-0, they’re the NFL’s last remaining unbeaten team.
Marqise Lee Limited Jersey
We’re lucky enough we have enough depth to do that,” Reid said.

Garrett suffered a high ankle sprain during practice Sept. 6 and has yet to play in a game, but last week the defensive end returned to practice. Browns coach Hue Jackson said earlier this week he would be on a pitch count in his first NFL game.
Albert McClellan Limited Jersey
Am I at my peak? No, Garrett said. But it’s good enough for me. I can move. I can run. I can bend. If I can do that, I can be out there and I can make a difference.

There has been speculation as to when Garrett would actually return, and according to defensive coordinator Greg Williams, he wanted to play against the Bengals last Sunday but the team held him back.

He is not going out there thinking that I am going to go halfway, Williams said. Myles is going out there with an attitude that he wants to play and he wants to play really, really well.

That’s what Saban said the year before when we lost to LSU, and we ended up playing in the national championship

Cornerback Xavien Howard missed Wednesday’s practice because of the shoulder injury he suffered in last week’s loss to the Saints. Howard’s potential absence could put veteran Byron Maxwell back in the starting lineup after he was recently benched. — James Walker

“That’s what Saban said the year before when we lost to LSU, and we ended up playing in the national championship. … I gave that same speech and the same thing ended up happening. We had one loss, we went back and won the SEC championship game, and got to play Notre Dame in Miami.”

Sumlin: “That whole year had an impact. [That] one game was a big deal. But the season — for what people thought would happen with the move to the SEC — I think that entire year was really a positive situation for the football program. … There’s pluses and minuses that came with that, too, and we all know what those are.”

Nico Johnson: “[Manziel] had a great season to that point and then he pretty much solidified his Heisman Trophy by going to Alabama and beating us in our house. It was crazy. And then we continued to win throughout the year and it made his performance even greater that day.”

Texas A&M radio play-by-play announcer Dave South: “I still say it to this day … I’ve seen some great players in those 47 years [of calling football], but I don’t think I’ve ever seen anybody like Johnny Manziel.”

And, as always, Dallas has to find a way to slow down Rodgers and the prolific Green Bay offense.

“Hopefully, we’ll make our share of plays and hopefully derail (Rodgers) and that offense,” Garrett said. “You feel like at times you do a really good job of defending him and somehow, some way he gets outs of it and makes a play anyway. You’ve got to tip your cap to him and keep going.”yankees_1543_10982fb137faf5ef-180x180

Dolphins coach Adam Gase defends Jay Cutler Jersey lack of movement in Wildcat

Miami Dolphins coach Adam Gase on Wednesday defended quarterback Jay Cutler’s role in the Wildcat.
Ben Bishop Game Jersey
Womens Jim McMahon Jersey Lined up outside as a receiver during Sunday’s 20-0 loss to the New Orleans Saints, Cutler was mocked heavily on social media for not moving on the play and keeping his hands on his hips. However, Gase said Cutler did the right thing, and he wasn’t concerned about the quarterback’s body language.

The good news for New Orleans is that it has a proven backup in veteran Craig Robertson, who started 15 games for the Saints (primary at middle linebacker) last year and started 37 games in four years for the Cleveland Browns before that.

But still, this is obviously another hurdle for a young Saints defense that was starting to turn things around before the Week 5 bye.

Anzalone was one of three rookie starters on the Saints’ defense, which ranked 32nd in the NFL through two weeks before making a stunning turnaround with wins of 34-13 at Carolina and 20-0 vs. Miami in London.

Anzalone (6-foot-3, 241 pounds) also battled shoulder injuries early in his Florida career. And he suffered a broken forearm last year. As a result, he played in just 31 games in four years — a reason why he slipped to the third round of the draft. It’s unclear if his latest injury is a recurrence of past issues.

The Saints have filled four vacant roster spots over the past two days by re-signing defensive tackle John Hughes and fullback Zach Line and adding guard John Greco and linebacker Gabe Martin.

Bears safety Quintin Demps Jersey out indefinitely with broken arm

Bears safety Quintin Demps is out indefinitely after suffering a broken arm on Sunday, coach John Fox told reporters Monday.

Demps fractured his left forearm while tackling Pittsburgh Steelers running back Le’Veon Bell in the fourth quarter of the Bears’ 23-17 win. Bell kneed Demps in the forearm after catching a pass and running full speed while Demps tried a low tackle.

This is the fourth injury to a Bears’ first stringer that will cause significant time on the sideline. Demps joins receivers Cameron Meredith (left knee) and Kevin White (shoulder), and inside linebacker Jerrell Freeman (left pec).

Authentic Kids Matt Garza Jersey Demps has 12 combined tackles and one assist so far this season and has a career total of 312 combined tackles since 2008.

Adam Gotsis Authentic Jersey Kyle Rudolph, TE, Vikings: While Diggs and Thielen thrived working with Keenum on Sunday, Rudolph’s day was almost completely quiet, as he caught 1 of 2 targets for 1.4 PPR fantasy points. It’s especially troubling for Rudolph, who was started in 78.1 percent of ESPN leagues, that the Vikings have been targeting wide receivers at a greater rate than usual. Keenum threw 19 of his 33 passes to Diggs and Thielen alone, and 23 of his 33 passes total to his wideouts on Sunday.

Philip Rivers, QB, Los Angeles Chargers: For only the eighth time in his 183-game NFL career, Rivers was intercepted as many as three times, resulting in a ghastly 3.5-point fantasy score on Sunday. That was the 11th-worst single-game effort of his career, and it was yet another stinker against the division-rival Chiefs, who certainly seem to have had Rivers’ number during his 14-year career. Rivers has managed only 39 career games with fewer than 10 fantasy points, and nine of them have come against the Chiefs. He has averaged just 12.78 fantasy points in his 24 career games against them.

Firing Marvin Lewis and ditching Andy Dalton Jersey would be a good start.

Scoring touchdowns is important. The Cincinnati Bengals haven’t done that and — surprise, surprise — the team is now 0-2.

At least Andy Dalton recognizes the issue.
Authentic Womens Mike Wagner Jersey
If you are going to win in this league, you have to score touchdowns, and we haven’t done that, the Bengals quarterback told reporters after a 13-9 loss to the Houston Texans.

The first step to recovery is admitting you have a problem, so at least that’s out of the way. But fixing that problem may be a tad more difficult.

Game Rishard Matthews Jersey Dallas has the best offensive line in the league. They were the unsung heroes of Prescott and Elliott’s spectacular rookie season. But they didn’t look the part on Sunday.

That aggressive Broncos 3-4 front sacked Prescott twice and hit him seven times. And the stifling defense wouldn’t give the Cowboys’ run game any breathing room. Denver allowed the Cowboys to convert just three of 14 third-down attempts, and two of five fourth downs.

The Cowboys’ inability to sustain drives and keep up with the Broncos was bigger than just the offensive line, though. It also led to Prescott being forced to pass more. He threw the ball 50 times, completing just 30 passes.

It impacted Garrett’s play calling as well. He chose go for it on a couple of fourth downs in Broncos territory out of desperation to narrow the gap in the score, and the attempts were unsuccessful.

The Packers play in the NFC North and have Aaron Rodgers chucking the pigskin around at quarterback

The Atlanta defense did a nice job keeping Aaron Rodgers and his friends in check, and the whole game was about as encouraging as it could’ve been.

I’m kidding. The Packers play in the NFC North and have Aaron Rodgers chucking the pigskin around at quarterback, so they’ll be just fine.

That’s not to say this result isn’t concerning. Atlanta’s the best team in the NFC until someone demonstrates otherwise, and to whatever extent this was a measuring-stick game, the Packers came up way short. That they didn’t figure out how to even contend with this Atlanta nucleus over a long, cold offseason is at least a little concerning.

Still, though: NFC North and Aaron Rodgers. There are no guarantees about these things, but a January rematch on this same field is entirely possible.

His elation came right after Jalen Richard took a pitch 52 yards to paydirt, putting the Raiders up by a score of 35-13 with 12:49 left in the game. Essentially it was the nail in the coffin that gave the Raiders the win.

As you might expect, he was a man of few words after the game, saying of his dance and the crowd reaction “It felt good.” But his teammates would put into words what he put into motion on the sideline.

No one understands what Marshawn is feeling right now than Donald Penn, who was also a fan of the Raiders growing up in Los Angeles

“If you grow up cheering for a team and you get to play for them, wouldn’t that be something?,” said Penn. “I know I feel it. If the Raiders were in LA where I grew up watching them, I’d be like that too. I’m just happy for him, living a childhood dream, a lot of kids don’t get to live that. That’s just him being him. Marshawn’s a good fun guy. . . I’m happy the fans got to see that excitement. It felt good.”

Yeah, it’s just Marshawn being Marshawn. But this is Oakland Marshawn. It’s a side of him you don’t see anywhere but ‘The Town’ he loves.
