Tom May played for Toulon from 2009 to 2011 -- here he gives the rundown on what is in store for Chris Ashton at the three-time European champions.?So what waits for Chris Ashton at Toulon? There will be early difficulties but plenty of thrills.He divides opinion. Some say he should have stayed at Saracens and some see exactly why hes moving on to Toulon. Im in the latter party.The spotlight is very different from the one he experiences now. For different reasons, it was the same with Jonny Wilkinson when he left Newcastle. Its a relentless glare and sometimes it can be hard to live under.Whatever the reason, he cant get away from it and its tiring for players. He will be largely left alone in France. He will merge into the melting pot of galacticos that Toulon have and be able to get on with life -- probably what he needs after the last couple of years. He will be able to breathe again and just be.It will be a difficult move for him. Taking a young family to France will be tough. Simple things we take for granted when moving house takes forever to get sorted -- internet, phone lines, TV etc. -- and it can be excruciatingly frustrating to get your life in order.My advice is just go with it even if it does bring you to tears at first. It takes ages to get most things done in France -- even drinking an espresso -- and no matter how hard you try, you wont change it. If you buy into the way of life though, hell love it as much as I did. But fight it and hell be on the plane home from Nice sooner rather than later.Learning any language is hard and getting started sooner rather than later is advisable for Chris. Mike Ford and Paul Stridgeon will offer familiar faces and mean the Wigan accent isnt lost on the other players at the club and it will be some comfort to a new arrival. It will almost be a home away from home.He will need to make an effort, that will be expected. The French dont take it lightly should you not make an effort to speak their language and rightly so. Its embarrassing whhen an Englishman expects everyone else to communicate in their tongue. Jurickson Profar Jersey. Have a crack, everyone makes some howling errors which get some weird looks but thats what its about.Match day will be a completely different experience for him. Saracens are doing a good job at generating a growing crowd but Allianz Park is nothing compared to the sensational Stade Mayol.The stadium is packed to the rafters with Toulonnais fans, tossing the local newspaper in the air week in week out. Its something he will love as a player, perhaps similar to the experience he would have had in the Super League. No doubt Ashton will be loved by the fans there but more importantly for me, he will love them and what they give to the whole experience.Another piece of advice is: dont forget the handshakes. Every day, on arrival at work, the players go round and shake everyones hand. Its a superb way to show respect to those you see each day. You dont forget anyone, thats rude. Should you start speaking to them without having shaken hands and said hello, well look out! Even worse dont forget that you have already shaken someones hand. Youve had a shocker if you do. I only did it once and I didnt do it again as it got a brutal response. It really didnt go down very well.Overall, its a great move, I dont blame him. Clearly the money will have something to do with it and who would turn down the offer like that if it came along. If a big contract offer arrives at the age of 30 youve got to think about taking the opportunity, it might not come round again. The same happened to me. Perhaps not as many sacks of cash -- no perhaps about it! - but its something you cant turn down.When you combine all of that with the truly memorable three years ahead of him, then he will be a happy man.

A week before everyone else kicks off, Cal and Hawaii meet Aug. 26 in Sydney, Australia, a city that has never hosted a college football game.If a historic trip Down Under isnt unusual enough, Hawaii then travels nearly 9,500 miles to Ann Arbor, Michigan, to play the Wolverines.

The return match will take place next Wednesday. Udinese leads Fiorentina 2-1 in the other semifinal. Napoli staged a second-half comeback from two goals down after Gervinhos opener and a stunning strike from Kevin Strootman. DENVER -- Nolan Arenado won the game with his walk-off homer and saved it time after time with his work at the hot corner. So, as Joe Thatcher, the reliever who gave up the game-winning homer, succinctly surmised, "Tonight was his night." Indeed, it was. Arenado hit the winning homer to begin the ninth inning and the Colorado Rockies beat the San Diego Padres 10-9 on Friday night after squandering a six-run lead. The 22-year-old rookie sent a 1-1 fastball from Thatcher (2-1) over the wall in left field. Arenado sauntered around the bases and then tossed his batting helmet as he rounded third base. He was mobbed by teammates once he stomped on home plate. "It was cool," Arenado said. "Hit a couple in the minor leagues. Hitting one up here is special." But his homer was only part of the story. He made one diving snare after another, including one that ended a bases-loaded threat in the seventh to keep the game tied. That play was what had everyone talking. "The home run is going to be the one on the highlights," said Matt Belisle (4-2), who pitched two scoreless innings to earn the win. "To see him get a big hit like that, youre just so happy for the kid. "Defensively, he was stellar. Hopefully, hes going to feel real good tomorrow and keep it rolling." Carlos Gonzalez had two triples and drove in three runs before leaving with a left knee injury in the seventh. Dexter Fowler returned to the lineup after sitting out with a migraine and finished with three hits, while Todd Helton drove in three runs. The Padres trailed by six runs early in the game and 9-4 heading into the seventh, before rallying for five runs. Chase Headley began the inning when he was hit by Rob Scahill, possibly as retaliation for when starter Edinson Volquez plunked Troy Tulowitzki in the second. "Just got away from me," Scahill said after the game. Carlos Quentin then hit a two-run homer and Jedd Gyorko followed with a solo shot. After a double by Kyle Blanks, Cameron Maybin made it a one-run game with an RBI single. That was all for Scahill, who faced five batters and gave up five runs without getting an out. Everth Cabrera tied it when he beat out an infield single. After Headley -- batting for a second time in the inning -- struck out with the bases loaded, Quentin laced a liner to third. Arenado snared it and threw a strike to first to end the inning. "Defence is a big part of my game," Arenado said. "A lot of people didnt think I could play defence. Its funny, Ive been showing more of my defence than my bat lately." Gonzalez wasnt around for the finish after slipping in the sixth when he was trying to scramble out of the batters box. He gingerly ran dowwn the line before limping into the dugout. Kerry Wood Jersey. He trotted out to left to start the seventh, only to be replaced by Jonathan Herrera on a double-switch. Michael Cuddyer usually wouldve gone in, but hes sidelined with a rib strain. Gonzalez downplayed his injury, saying the knee has been bothering him since spring training. "Its all right. Just sore," he said. "Right now, I feel good." After scoring three times off Volquez in the first, Colorado broke open the game with a five-run second -- a big inning set up by another debatable call at first base. Fowler put down a one-out bunt and appeared to be out by a step, only to have first-base umpire Jim Joyce rule him safe. Gonzalez followed with a two-run triple. Soon after, Helton, Arenado and Yorvit Torrealba added RBI singles. The night before, the Padres scored the go-ahead run in the 12th when pinch hitter Yasmani Grandal was called safe at first on his bases-loaded fielders choice grounder. Replays seemed to indicate he was out by a step. Blanks, who nearly didnt join the Padres in Denver for this series, had a big game for San Diego, hitting a two-run homer in the second and adding a run-scoring single in the fifth. With Maybin set to come off the disabled list, the Padres were planning to send Blanks to the minors. Instead, Yonder Alonso went on the DL with a bruised right hand and Blanks had to catch a plane to the Mile High City. Jorge De La Rosa didnt have his best stuff and he surrendered four runs and 11 hits in five shaky innings. Volquez never got on track, giving up career highs in runs (9) and hits (11) while lasting just 2 1-3 innings. He was let off the hook for the loss with the Padres late surge. "It was tough. Thats the first time thats happened to me in my whole career," Volquez said. "Ive got to be able to make adjustments, throw quality pitches." Fowler returned to the field after dealing with horrible headaches that had him pulling the shades down inside his house. He even had a CAT scan just to be safe and said everything checked out fine. "Every time I put my head down, I thought I was going to pass out," Fowler said. NOTES: Headley left late in the game with tightness in his right calf. ... The Padres will send LHP Eric Stults (4-5) to the mound on Saturday. The Rockies havent announced a replacement for RHP Tyler Chatwood, who has a triceps injury. The top candidate to fill in appears to be LHP Jeff Francis, whos eligible to come off the 15-day disabled list. Francis said his groin injury is 100 per cent. ... It was the Rockies fifth walk-off win of the season. ... The Padres outhit the Rockies, 17-16. ...

GREEN BAY, Wis. Tremaine Edmunds Jersey . -- As the yards and points allowed add up at a huge rate, Green Bay Packers coach Mike McCarthy is staying the course.McCarthy reiterated Monday what he said after the Packers latest crushing loss the previous night: now is not the time to make any drastic changes, especially with a defense that is low on manpower and high on allowing big plays.Theres no reinventing the wheel, McCarthy asserted. Weve talked about this since the day I arrived here. We have a system of football -- offense, defense and special teams -- that accommodates any football player on our roster. If weve got to reinvent the wheel in Week 11 or Week 12, we havent set our plan the right way for the season.Theres not much time left for the Packers to get the season turned back in the right direction after host Washington pummeled them 42-24 on Sunday night.The Packers are in the throes of their first four-game losing streak since late in the 2008 season, the last time they didnt make the playoffs. At 4-6, they are two games behind NFC North front-runners Detroit and Minnesota.Most troubling for Green Bay is opponents have figured out the clear way to beat the Packers is to go deep against the porous back end of their defense.Kirk Cousins exploited a short-handed secondary that thinned out even more during the game by throwing for 375 yards and three touchdowns. The Packers allowed 515 yards, a season high, and 40-plus points for the second straight week after giving up 47 in a 22-point loss at Tennessee.You cant win ballgames giving up that many points, no matter whos on offense, defensive back Micah Hyde lamented after Sundays game. Our offense can score a lot of points and move the ball, do what they do, but if we give up that many points, were not going to win any games. And weve seen that the last couple of weeks.The hemorrhaging with the defense has been going on for nearly a month. Green Bay has given up 30 or more points in each game during the skid, its longest such streak of allowing so many points in a game since 1953. The 153 points allowed are the most by the Packers in a four-game stretch since the 1951 team gave up 156 its final four weeks.The Green Bay defense has been responsible for all but seven of those points in the last four contests, during which the opposition has averaged more than 420 yards per game and thrown for nearly 1,250 yards and 12 touchdowns.To the chagrin of McCarthy, the Packers have forced only two turnovers in those games. Theyve had zero the last two weeks.The biggest hole in our football team is our turnover ratio, said McCarthy, whose club is minus-6 in turnover margin. Ive been talking about it all year. Were not taking care of the football, were not taking the football away. Until that changes, were going to be fighting uphill.Defensive coordinator Dom Capers simply said, No excuses, on Monday even as the injuries mounted for the defense.Already playing without top cornerbacks Sam Shields and Damarious Randall, the Packers lost replacement starter Demetri Goodson to what McCarthy termed a significant knee injury in the first half Sunday.Green Bay later had starting rookie linebacker Blake Martinez (knee) and contributing rookie safety Kentrell Brice (neck) leave the game as the Redskins pulled away in the second half with touchdown passes of 44 and 70 yards and a few other big plays.Thats when kind of all hell broke loose, Capers said.McCarthy said Randall is getting closer to returning to action, perhaps by next Monday night, when the Packers end their three-game road swing against the Philadelphia Eagles.I think what happened (Sunday) is very correctable, and weve got to go back to work and correct it because we know weve got to go to Philly and find a way to win a game, Capers said.---For more NFL coverage: http://www.pro32.ap.org and http://www.twitter.com/AP-NFL TreDavious White Jersey .

JOHNS, N. NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- A woman who was gang-raped by football players while unconscious in a dorm room at Vanderbilt University has now testified for a fourth time in court. Cory Batey was sentenced to 15 years in prison Friday after a searing 11-minute statement by the victim, who was a neuroscience and economics major when she was attacked. These are her words, as transcribed by The Associated Press.Thank you.Its hard for me to stand here on display and speak to you today about the impact this has had on my life. The thought of sharing any more of myself that hasnt already been taken from me seems unbearable, and it goes against every instinct that I have.I was fearful of giving a victim impact statement at all because I know that after three years and everything that has happened, I can never do it justice, and Im scared of that failure. It will never be possible for anyone to put into words how this has affected me. And you will never understand what this has done to me if you arent standing in my shoes. The humiliation, the pain, the isolation, being reduced to nothing but a piece of flesh right before your eyes -- it does something to you that is truly impossible to describe.I also know that its hard to encapsulate the impact this has had because it is still ongoing. The attack on me didnt end that day, because I re-live it in every proceeding, and experience additional attacks every time I am in court.When I let myself think of this, I become so angry and feel so powerless, even today, that speaking coherently about it at all is a challenge. But after what was done to me that night and three years of abuse at the hands of the defendant, I felt I had to come here and ask the court to consider the impact of his choices and his actions.On June 22 of 2013, I was a happy, hard-working Vanderbilt student looking forward to my future. I was 21 years old. Ive seen with my own eyes what I was when Mr. Batey was done with me -- a piece of trash, face down in a hallway covered in his urine and palm prints. A photograph he took himself.There are no words to describe the horror of the images from that night and how it feels to watch yourself be dehumanized.A detective showed me some of those photos and videos that you and 42 jurors have now seen, so many times. And what I saw was image after image of my genitalia, covering the entire frame on the screen. These stark, alien-looking fingers all over the flesh were moving from frame to frame, with multiple hands reaching in. Videos played, and I heard the laughing. I heard the degrading, taunting voices.My memory of the images I was shown then starts to flash in and out. The realization of all the ways that they raped me, that people can see these close-up images of my body, the unknown of what was done to me in those 30 minutes that wasnt recorded -- it was incomprehensible. I wanted to run away and never stop running.At one point I saw what I first thought was a dead womans face. I was suddenly overwhelmed by my memory of a family members corpse, and then I realized that its me. They had taken a picture of my face during the rape. I was lifeless and my face was covered in something shiny. I didnt recognize myself.Something permanent snapped that day. I felt myself detach from my body. Now, I feel like Im walking around in the shell of someone else. A part of me went numb, a sense of being a whole person with hopes and dreams about whats possible in the world was now gone.I felt my belief that people are inherently good turn into some cruel joke, in an instant. I even blamed myself for believing that people werent capable of something like this, and that the world is a better place than it is, when the truth was that I did nothing wrong.No one should ever have to experience what I have. Mr. Batey is to blame for his actions and his choices.I was 21 years old when this happened. Im 24 today.. Dion Dawkins Jersey. . Since the horror of that night, all I have wanted is for this to be behind me, to be left alone and to try and live my life in peace. But the process to get justice has been a never-ending, constant misery that has twisted itself so into my life that I cant even remember what it was like in a time when this wasnt happening.Everything the defendant has done in this case and the media circus surrounding it have been a continuous disruption, repeatedly dragging me back every single step I try to take forward. I can only feel that the defendant has intentionally wanted this to be as tortuous for me as possible.Part of the impact this has had and will continue to have on my life is the media scrutiny, invited by Mr. Bateys own high-profile status and amplified by his own television interviews. What happened to me that night has been compounded by the live-streaming, tweeting, and international dissemination of every detail of how I was degraded and humiliated for all posterity. In this age of technology, anyone I ever meet in my personal or professional life can learn that I am a rape victim and the details of the case before Ive even fully introduced myself to them. There is no way for me to even know if any given person I interact with has done so. This is something I now have to expect for the rest of my life.It is also hard for me to push aside all of the attempts by the defendant to misrepresent himself and disparage my character, because I could stand here for hours talking about the impact of all the lies Ive had to sit in this courtroom and listen to. I remember each and every one of them, and every time it hurt me. It made me angry because I didnt have a voice and I couldnt say anything. I shouldnt even have to defend myself, and even if I could, everything I share about myself here is repeated by the national media. It got so bad that for the last two trials, I couldnt even bear to sit in here and listen to it.Part of me does want to stand here for hours and hours and go through every single thing Mr. Batey has done throughout this case. But the truth is that the focus never should have been on me. I was unconscious. I was driven and carried to the crime scene. The defendant was a complete stranger.Again, the attack on me didnt end that day, because I re-live it in every proceeding and am constantly experiencing additional attacks. The fact that I even had to breathe the same air as the men who did this to me, ever again, to me is unthinkable. But I have endured all of this because the details of the rape are so horrific, and there is so much irrefutable evidence -- I knew that they had to be stopped and held accountable.This is a serious, violent crime and it must receive the enhanced punishment it deserves. Any victim should know that they would have justice if they went through the process.I am asking that Mr. Batey receive the maximum sentence of 25 years under the law, to set the amount of time that he will not be able to do this to another victim, to deter others like him, and based on the particularly egregious nature of the rape itself.He did not commit just one act of violence against me. There were five acts of sexual assault and rape committed by him and him alone, and there were seven acts of violence he was found guilty of committing against me. But sexual assault was not where the attack ended. Mr. Batey continued to abuse and degrade me, urinating on my face while uttering horrific racial hate speech that suggested I deserved what he was doing to me because of the color of my skin. He didnt even know who I was.I also ask for the maximum sentence of 25 years as is appropriate for the impact this has had and will continue to have on me every day for the rest of my life. Wholesale NFL Jerseys Wholesale Nike NFL Jerseys NFL Jerseys From China Cheap Nike Basketball Jerseys Wholesale Hockey Jerseys China Nike Baseball Jerseys Cheap College Jerseys China Cheap Football Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Canada Wholesale NHL Jerseys Canada Wholesale Nike MLB Jerseys Canada Cheap NBA Jerseys Authentic Canada Stitched Soccer Jerseys Canada Cheap Jerseys Canada NFL ' ' '
NFL Nation reporters detail the biggest storylines for every team coming out of Week 8 and what they mean going forward. http://www.packersrookiestore.com/Packers-Reggie-White-Jersey/ .AFC East | AFC North| AFC South | AFC West NFC East | NFC North | NFC South | NFC WestAFC EASTBuffalo Bills?(4-4)At 4-4, the Bills are now playing for a wild-card spot. Rex Ryan effectively conceded the AFC East to the 7-1 Patriots after Sundays loss, admitting that the Bills have little chance to catch up in the division. With games at Seattle and at Cincinnati looming, the Bills season is beginning to unravel. -- Mike RodakWeek 9:?at Seattle, Monday, 8:30 p.m. ETMiami Dolphins?(3-4)The big story with the Dolphins headed into Week 9 is whether they can stay hot following their bye week. Miami?is in the middle?of its first two-game winning streak of the season with recent victories over the Steelers and Bills. The team took five days off during the bye to rest, however, and will work on shaking off rust before Sundays division game against the Jets. -- James WalkerWeek 9:?vs. New York Jets, Sunday, 1 p.m. ETNew England Patriots?(7-1)Tight end Rob Gronkowski?on Sunday set the Patriots record for touchdowns, scoring his 69th on a 53-yard connection with Tom Brady in the second quarter as New England rolled over the Bills. Gronkowski said after the game that he received a phone call in the locker room from wide receiver?Stanley Morgan (1977-1989) to congratulate him on breaking his record, adding that it was an honor to do so close to where he grew up in western New York. The Patriots head into their bye week with four straight wins, and a tough game against the Seahawks?looms in Week 10. ?-- Mike ReissWeek 9:?ByeNew York Jets?(3-5)The Jets might actually make it through a week without a quarterback controversy. Ryan Fitzpatrick rallied the Jets to a win over the Browns, which should quiet the pro-Bryce Petty crowd for at least a week. Coach Todd Bowles said he never considered a change at halftime despite a poor performance by Fitzpatrick. It showed that Bowles doesnt think Petty, the new No. 2 now that Geno Smith is out for the season, is a viable alternative. Yet. -- Rich CiminiWeek 9:?at Miami, Sunday, 1 p.m. ETAFC NORTHBaltimore Ravens?(3-4)The Ravens will be in first place in the AFC North on Sunday if they can beat the Steelers and end a four-game losing streak. Baltimore hasnt won since Sept. 25, but the Ravens are getting healthier. Five injured starters -- wide receiver Steve Smith Sr., linebackers Terrell Suggs and C.J. Mosley, guard Marshal Yanda and offensive tackle Ronnie Stanley -- are all expected to be available after the bye. Thats something thats really important and valuable, and Im excited about that, coach John Harbaugh said of the return of his big-name players. -- Jamison HensleyWeek 9:?vs. Pittsburgh, Sunday, 1 p.m. ETCincinnati Bengals?(3-4-1)A team with Super Bowl aspirations heading into the season needed some momentum after a ho-hum win over the winless Browns, but the Bengals were unable to capitalize on opportunities in settling for a tie against the Redskins.?The Bengals 3-4-1 record doesnt ruin their playoff hopes in a suddenly below-average AFC North, but bad penalties, defensive lapses and kicker Mike Nugent missing a field goal and extra point give the coaching staff plenty to think before a Monday night road game against the Giants on Nov. 14. -- ESPN.com staffWeek 9:?ByeCleveland Browns?(0-8)The Browns are staring at the likelihood an 0-16 season. The first half of the season ended without a win and with a poor performance against a beatable team in the Jets. The next opponent is Dallas, which figures to be a big favorite. There are no easy answers on the schedule when it comes to the Browns erasing that zero in the win?column. -- Pat McManamonWeek 9:?vs. Dallas, Sunday, 1 p.m. ETPittsburgh Steelers?(4-3)The presence of Ben Roethlisberger looms large as the Steelers prepare for the rival Ravens. Coming off the bye week, Pittsburgh will start to prepare Landry Jones for his second consecutive start while Roethlisberger continues to recover from a torn meniscus. If Roethlisberger can complete a full practice before Sunday, he might just be ready to take the field less than three weeks after corrective surgery. But thats hardly a guarantee, even if Roethlisbergers light throwing sessions last week were encouraging. -- Jeremy FowlerWeek 9:?at Baltimore, Sunday, 1 p.m. ETAFC SOUTHHouston Texans?(5-3)At the midpoint of the season, the Texans have not played as well as their 5-3 record indicates. And quarterback?Brock Osweiler said after Sundays victory over the Lions that thats a good thing. The Texans enter their bye week leading the division and are 2-0 against?AFC South teams. Houston has a lot of banged-up players, including running back Lamar Miller, who played through a painful shoulder injury on Sunday. Now the Texans have almost two weeks to get healthy, and Osweiler said they will use the time to get some guys healthy and hit the reset button. -- Sarah BarshopWeek 9:?ByeIndianapolis Colts?(3-5)Playing Green Bay at Lambeau Field is a tough enough challenge when it healthy. Its a major challenge when you have a bunch of injuries. That could be the case next weekend for the Colts. Among the players injured in Sundays loss to Kansas City:?cornerback Vontae Davis (concussion) and right tackle Joe Reitz (concussion), while right guard Denzelle Good left the locker room with a boot on his left foot, and receiver Phillip Dorsett left with his left shoulder wrapped. The Colts were already without tight end Dwayne Allen (ankle), defensive lineman Kendall Langford (knee) and defensive lineman Henry Anderson (knee) against the Chiefs. -- Mike WellsWeek 9:?at Green Bay, Sunday, 4:25 p.m. ETJacksonville Jaguars?(2-5)Coach Gus Bradley fired offensive coordinator Greg Olson earlier this week and promoted quarterbacks?coach Nathaniel Hackett. Bradley and Hackett?will speak to the media on Monday and hopefully explain how the offense will change before this weekends game at Kansas City. There may have been some disconnect between Olson and quarterback?Blake Bortles, but the main issue for the offenses struggles has been?Bortles poor play all season. -- Mike DiRoccoWeek 9:?at Kansas City, Sunday, 1 p.m. ETTennessee Titans?(4-4)While players report back to team headquarters Monday after three days off, the coaching staff was at the facility Sunday to begin construction of a game plan for the Chargers. The Titans have lost six consecutive games in San Diego, including a January 2008 wild-card game. Chargers offensive coordinator Ken Whisenhunt coached the Titans for 21 games in 2014 and 2015 and will have some insight into their personnel. The Titans are in second place in the AFC South, just a game off of Houstons pace. -- Paul KuharskyWeek 9:?at San Diego, Sunday, 4:25 p.m. ETAFC WESTDenver Broncos?(6-2)The Broncos were without two starters on defense -- and even went more than a half without defensive coordinator Wade Phillips calling plays -- and yet the defense continues to roll. They had three interceptions and sacked Philip Rivers four times in a victory over the Chargers. It means the Broncos are 6-2 at the halfway point and continue to cover up most blemishes with a defense that takes it all as business as usual. Phillips was taken to the hospital after a sideline collision Sunday, Bradley Roby started at cornerback for Pro Bowler Aqib Talib and Corey Nelson started at linebacker for Brandon Marshall. No one is waiting around for somebody else to make a play, linebacker Von Miller. said. We feel like the next play is our chance to make a play for our team. -- Jeff LegwoldWeek 9:?at Oakland, Sunday, 8:30 p.m. ETKansas City Chiefs?(5-2)The transition to Nick Foles at quarterback Sunday against the Colts wasnt just seamless. The Chiefs were better with Foles than they were with Alex Smith, who exited the game with a concussion. Foles brought some life to the downfield passing game by completing four passes of 28 yards or more. The Chiefs had only eight such pass plays in their first six games. I dont think anybody blinked an eye, said wide receiver Jeremy Maclin, who played with Foles for a time with the Eagles. He is a guy that everyone knows likes to throw the ball down the field. The Chiefs have no reason to fear if Foles has to start next Sunday against the Jaguars. That will depend?on how quickly Smith mends. -- Adam TeicherWeek 9:?vs. Jacksonville, Sunday, 1 p.m. ETOakland Raiders?(6-2)If the Raiders can escape with an overtime?victory in Tampa Bay from so many self-inflicted wounds -- an NFL-record 23 penalties for a franchise-record 200 yards -- how good can they be with a much cleaner effort? Oakland will have that chance to find out next week with the defending champion Broncos coming to town for a nationally televised Sunday night game. I already started on them in the locker room, said Raiders quarterback?Derek Carr, who passed for a franchise-record 513 yards and four touchdowns?against the Buccaneers. My mind is already there ... the road to the Super Bowl goes through them. Added left tackle Donald Penn, who caught a TD pass in his return to Tampa: Were going to go out there and show the world what weve got. Big game. -- Paul GutierrezWeek 9:?vs. Denver, Sunday, 8:30 p.m. ETSan Diego Chargers?(3-5)Even though the Chargers suffered a tough loss to the Broncos on the road Sunday, quarterback Philip Rivers said the team can hang its hat on the fact that it split the season series with the defending Super Bowl champs this season. With a 3-5 record at the midpoint of the season, Rivers believes the Chargers can get back in the playoff hunt. San Diego hosts the Titans at Qualcomm Stadium next week, followed by the Dolphins before heading into the bye week. Im fired up, Rivers said. Shoot, weve got to two at home to get to 5-5 at the bye ... Then weve got a six-game season. -- Eric D. WilliamsWeek 9:?vs. Tennessee, Sunday, 4:25 p.m. ETNFC EASTDallas Cowboys (6-1)Dez Bryants 53-yard catch in the first quarter in the overtime win over Philadelphia on Sunday was his longest since a 65-yarder in the 2014 finale and Dak Prescotts longest completion of his career. As the Cowboys see more defenses focus more on stopping Ezekiel Elliott, they will have to make plays down the field in the passing game. Thats what happened in 2014 when DeMarco Murray finished with 1,845 yards and Bryant coming alive with 10 touchdown receptions in the last seven games. Now the Cowboys attention turns to the winless Browns -- and the Cowboys looming quarterback decision. -- Todd ArcherWeek 9: at Cleveland, Sunday, 1 p.m. ETNew York Giants?(4-3)The Giants return Monday from the bye week, and theyll have to shake off the stink from the Josh Brown situation. Brown was released on Tuesday, not long after the players escaped for their week off. Theyll return with the black cloud hanging over the franchise, and with a key divisional matchup with the Eagles on the horizon. Its a crucial game for the Giants in a competitive NFC East. -- Jordan RaananWeek 9:?vs. Philadelphia, Sunday, 1 p.m. ETPhiladelphia Eagles (4-3)The Eagles offensive inconsistencies will be one of the dominant stories this week, as quarterback Carson Wentz averaged just 4.1 yards per pass and the team averaged just 4.1 yards per play. But Tuesdays trade deadline is also worth watching -- Philadelphia has been linked to a few players, including wide receivers Torrey Smith and Alshon Jeffery. One answer to help in opening the offense could come in a trade, but the cost might be too high for general manager Howie Roseman. -- ESPN.com staffWeek 9: at New York Giants, Sunday, 1 p.m. ETWashington Redskins?(4-3-1)The Redskins top offensive priority entering the second half of the season must be the red zone. It cost them Sunday as they converted just one of four trips into touchdowns, a big reason why they ended in a tie with the Bengals. But that was just a continuation of the season as Washington entered this game ranked 28th with a 42.9 percent success rate. They were good here last year. Defenses caught up to us, now we have to stay ahead of defenses, receiver Pierre Garcon said. -- John KeimWeek 9: ByeNFC NORTHChicago Bears?(1-6)The Bears best chance to steal a victory on Monday night is for quarterback Jay Cutler to play like, well, Jay Cutler. Chicagos offense skewed far too conservative the past two games under Brian Hoyer. Cutler is not nearly as cautious. History tells us Cutler will attempt to show off his big arm and take shots down the field to Alshon Jeffery, even against Minnesotas top-rated defense. Maybe taking an occasional calculated risk is what the Bears offense -- ranked 32nd in points scored (15.9) -- needs to get going. The Vikings are such a superior operation from top to bottom that its hard to envision the Bears pulling off the upset unless Cutler goes off. -- Jeff DickersonWeek 9:?ByeDetroit Lions?(4-4)Games in the NFL are often going to be close, but the Lions have to figure out a way to avoid their penchant for needing last-minute drives from quarterback Matthew Stafford to bail them out. Stafford has been very good all season long, but -- as Sundays loss to Houston showed -- Detroits way of winning games is not sustainable on a?consistent basis this season. Particularly on the road, where the Lions are 1-3. -- Michael RothsteinWeek 9:?at Minnesota, Sunday, 1 p.m. ETGreen Bay Packers?(4-3)Get ready for some more shootouts. After the way Matt Ryan and the Falcons threw the ball in their high-scoring win over the Packers on Sunday in Atlanta, you can bet most teams -- beginning with Andrew Luck and the Colts this coming week -- will try to do the same thing. Aaron Rodgers did his best to keep up, but four touchdown passes werent good enough. -- Rob DemovskyWeek 9:?vs. Indianapolis, Sunday, 4:25 p.m. ETMinnesota Vikings?(5-1)The Vikings offense struggled in Philadelphia last weekend, and though they could have an easier task in Chicago on Monday night, theyll have to adjust their offense with several skill position players injured. Running back Jerick McKinnon wont play because of a sprained ankle, and wide receiver Cordarrelle Patterson was still in the NFL concussion protocol on Saturday, though coach Mike Zimmer thought Patterson would play Monday. Wide receiver Jarius Wright will also miss the game. The Vikings will have to lean on Matt Asiata in the running game, and could look for a contribution from Ronnie Hillman, who played his first snaps for the team last week. -- Ben GoesslingWeek 9:?vs. Detroit, Sunday, 1 p.m. ETNFC SOUTHAtlanta Falcons?(5-3)Matt Ryan talked leading into Sundays game about how the Falcons needed to show mental toughness. Well, Ryan definitely set an example for his teammates by directing his 34th-career game-winning drive -- capped by an 11-yard touchdown pass to Mohamed Sanu -- in a win over the Packers. It helped the Falcons break a two-game losing streak. And the resilience displayed by Ryan and the Falcons is something they can build off of going into a crucial NFC South game against the Buccaneers on Thursday night in Tampa. -- Vaughn McClureWeek 9:?at Tampa Bay, Thursday, 8:25 p.m. ETCarolina Panthers?(2-5)The win against Arizona on Sunday lifted a big weight off the shoulders of a Carolina team that hadnt won in a month. The Panthers hope the pressure they got defensively (eight sacks) will carry them forward and help turn around the season. Quarterback Cam Newton got something off his chest, calling out officials for not calling late hits when hes in the pocket. The NFL MVP said he will take his case to commissioner Roger Goodell. -- David NewtonWeek 9:?at Los Angeles, Sunday, 4:05 p.m. ETNew Orleans Saints?(3-4)The Saints have shown an impressive amount of patience and resilience to climb back to 3-4 after an 0-3 start. They have a great chance to get back to .500 with a trip to San Francisco coming up and key defensive players Delvin Breaux and Sheldon Rankins returning soon from injuries. That patience and resilience was also the formula to outlast Seattle on Sunday after trailing 14-3 early. The Saints 35 rushing attempts matched Drew Brees 35 pass attempts as they held the ball for more than 36 minutes. Wheres the stat guy in the room to say the last time that happened? Brees said. (The answer was 2014.) -- Mike TriplettWeek 9:?at San Francisco, Sunday, 4:05 p.m. ETTampa Bay Buccaneers?(3-4)Against the Raiders, the Bucs surrendered a record-number of total yards (626) and passing yards (513) in a heart-breaking overtime?loss. To make matters worse, they face the Falcons on Thursday night and may be without running back?Jacquizz Rodgers, who left the game with a foot/ankle injury and did not return. Coach?Dirk Koetter said, I dont think its probably good. For Bucs fans, neither is the fact that every other team in the NFC South won their game Sunday, making the Bucs chances of winning the division?a whole lot tougher. -- Jenna LaineWeek 9:?vs.?Atlanta, Thursday, 8:25 p.m. ETNFC WESTArizona Cardinals?(3-4-1)The Cardinals enter their bye week 3-4-1, but theyre optimistic they can go on a run when their second half begins in two weeks against the 49ers, who theyve already beaten once this season. Arizona needs to use the bye week to get healthy and fix some issues that have been plaguing them all season. The latest? Protecting quarterback?Carson Palmer. In Sundays loss to the Panthers, the Cards offensive line allowed a season-high eight sacks. -- Josh WeinfussWeek 9:?ByeLos Angeles Rams?(3-4)The Rams had a nice day for a team that didnt play, with the division-rival Seahawks (now 4-2-1) and Cardinals (3-4-1) both losing. The Rams have lost three straight games, but they have a nice opportunity to make up some ground coming out of their bye week. Their next four opponents -- the Panthers, Jets, Dolphins and Saints -- are a combined 11-18. The Rams will also be pretty healthy, with cornerback Trumaine Johnson and defensive tackle Michael Brockers the only players?nursing serious injuries, and both having a chance to play in Week 9. -- Alden GonzalezWeek 9:?vs. Carolina, Sunday, 4:05 p.m. ETSan Francisco 49ers?(1-6)The good news for the 49ers is that Week 8 represented the first time since the opener that they didnt lose. The bad news is that they didnt get a win to end their six-game losing streak because it was their bye week. Last week, coach Chip Kelly shouldered the blame for San Franciscos struggles and said he and his coaching staff would be working hard to find solutions to their many problems during their down time. Whether any real fixes are found remains to be seen, but at least as the Niners host New Orleans next week they should be healthier than they were before the bye. -- Nick WagonerWeek 9:?vs. New Orleans, Sunday, 4:05 p.m. ETSeattle Seahawks?(4-2-1)There will be a lot of focus on the officiating from the Seahawks loss to the Saints, but in terms of what the team can actually control, the focus this week will be on the offense. Against the worst scoring defense in the NFL, Russell Wilson & Co. managed just one touchdown on nine offensive possessions. The Seahawks have gotten in the end zone just once in their past 23 drives. The offense has no rhythm right now, and the team is having a difficult time coming up with solutions. Wilson has played through three different injuries. The offensive line has had issues. And the run game has been inconsistent. The defense will keep the Seahawks in a lot of games, but if the offense cant do its part, the next stretch of games, which includes the Bills, Patriots and Eagles, could be rough. -- Sheil KapadiaWeek 9:?vs. Buffalo, Monday, 8:30 p.m. ET http://www.packersrookiestore.com/Packers-Davante-Adams-Jersey/ .com) - Rafael Nadal, Andy Murray and Roger Federer were easy first-round winners Tuesday at the Australian Open. http://www.packersrookiestore.com/Packers-Ty-Montgomery-Jersey/ . A big centre with all the tools to be an elite player, Johansen paced the Blue Jackets with a standout game Saturday night. He had a goal and two assists for a career-high three points as Columbus beat the New York Islanders 5-2 to snap a five-game losing streak. http://www.packersrookiestore.com/Packers-Richard-Rodgers-Jersey/ . But now that hes in the NHL, the Calgary Flames centre showed big improvement in that department by scoring the winner in the eighth round of a 5-4 shootout victory over the Winnipeg Jets on Monday. SALT LAKE CITY -- This game will get buried in the history of No. 4 Washingtons already special season. If the Huskies make it to the playoff, that means they will have won games with more on the line. If they dont make it to the playoff, no one will remember.Thats too bad, because what Washington did to win at No. 17 Utah, 31-24, on Saturday is what championship teams do. The Huskies won on the road against a ranked team. They won when they took a 14-point lead and gave it up, won when the second-biggest crowd in the history of Rice-Eccles Stadium (47,801) had revved up into full roar on a spectacular fall afternoon.The Huskies won with the nation watching the biggest opportunity on their schedule to demonstrate how good they are. Thats because the rest of the Pac-12 this season is begging to be confused with the mediocrity of the Big 12.Who else in the Pac-12 is going to give Washington an opponent that will earn the Huskies some playoff brownie points? USC, which has won four straight games and lost to Alabama by 46? Washington State, the only other unbeaten team in league play, which lost to FCS Eastern Washington? A possible Pac-12 championship game against Colorado, which is much better but after the past two decades has no street cred?No, after winning their past three games by an average of 37 points, this was the Huskies opportunity, and they seized upon it.You never really know until youre in that situation, quarterback Jake Browning said. We embraced the fourth-quarter fight. Obviously, the blowouts are nice. But you want to pull [these] out. So that was big for us.Brownings stat line wont help him in the Heisman race. He completed 12 of 20 passes for 186 yards with two touchdowns and one interception. That pick, with Washington ahead 14-0 in the second quarter, brought Utah to life. The Utes spent the rest of the first half and nearly the first seven minutes of the second half -- a total of 14:55 -- running 33 plays to the Huskies three, and scoring 17 points to take the lead.Washington hadnt been behind since the second quarter of the Arizona game, four games ago, 252 minutes and 11 seconds on the clock. The Huskies needed exactly six plays to regain the lead, but this game had become a battle. Utah came back and tied it at 24-24 with 9:07 to play.Lets get back to Browning. That interception he threw would be his only glaring mistake of the game. He read the defense correctly and got the Huskies into the right play with an ease and efficiency that belied his sophomore status.And then, with the score still 24-24, and the Huskies facing a fourth-and-8 at the Utes 41 with slightly more than five minutes to play, Browning began a series of five plays that won the game for Washington. He began it with his foot.Washington head coach Chris Petersen didnt send his punt team onto the field. Browning, lined up in the pistol, took the snap and delivered his second punt of the season, a poocher that rolled to a stop at the Utes 1.The defense, which had forced only one other punt in the second half, held Utah to 2 yards in three plays. Safety Budda Baker, who haad stayed on his side of the line of scrimmage for the entire game, crashed forward on first down to nail Utes back Joe Williams for a 2-yard gain. http://www.packersrookiestore.com/Packers-Aaron-Ripkowski-Jersey/. Williams quit the team three weeks into the season because he was sore and couldnt take the punishment anymore. He has run for nearly 700 yards in the three games since he returned, getting 172 yards on a career-high 35 carries Saturday. Someone better check on him Sunday.The Utes went no farther, and with the ball on the 3, in came Utah punter Mitch Wishnowsky, who had done nothing all day except prove why hes the best in the game. Wishnowsky had punted five times, averaging 53.7 yards per kick, dropping four of them inside the 20, and hung the ball so high that Huskies returner Dante Pettis had a total of 2 return yards.Its hard, Pettis said. That guy is good. He has one of the best legs Ive played against. I was lining up at 50 yards, having to run back 15 more yards to get set up under it and have to drift back even more because the ball would just carry. That one didnt. He was backed up so he didnt have as much time to get set up and kick that ball.Wishnowsky punted it 55 yards, but the ball came out low and hard and never soared like his others. When Pettis caught the ball at the Washington 42, he had time. He ran right, to the wide field, and went backward about 5 yards to evade the coverage.I knew Coach Pete would be mad if I got tackled right there, so somehow I slipped out of it, Pettis said. I was literally, I cant get tackled right now. I cant get tackled right now. Pettis got to the sideline and pivoted upfield. He had a wall of blockers to his left and no red jerseys in sight. Replay showed anywhere from one to three blocks in the back by his teammates, none of which the officials called. The 58-yard touchdown, Pettis second punt return for a score this season, provided the winning margin for the Huskies (8-0, 5-0), extending their winning streak to 11 games.Thats a good football team we played today, Utah coach Kyle Whittingham said. Theyre talented, they have a terrific quarterback, theyre well coached, theyre solid in all three phases and they beat us.Petersen, who is begrudging in praise of his own team, agreed with Whittingham.I just like it when they answer hard tests, Petersen said. Theyve come out, theyve been ready to play. Weve started fast and got really good momentum going. Thats all fun. Thats fun and thats nice. But I do like it when we get in these hard situations and they have to figure out a way. I think thats going to give us some confidence down the road when we have to do another hard situation.The Huskies must play at defenseless Cal next week. They get USC and Arizona State at home, then go to Washington State for the Apple Cup. The way Washington played Saturday, on the road against a very good team, its easy to imagine that the Huskies will play at least two games after that: the Pac-12 championship and a College Football Playoff semifinal. Wholesale NFL Jerseys Wholesale Nike NFL Jerseys NFL Jerseys From China Cheap Nike Basketball Jerseys Wholesale Hockey Jerseys China Nike Baseball Jerseys Cheap College Jerseys China Cheap Football Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Canada Wholesale NHL Jerseys Canada Wholesale Nike MLB Jerseys CanadaCheap NBA Jerseys Authentic Canada Stitched Soccer Jerseys Canada Cheap Jerseys Canada NFL ' ' '

OPELIKA, Ala. -- Angel Cabrera and Jhonattan Vegas dominated the par-5 holes in steamy conditions Thursday to share the Barbasol Championship.The 46-year-old Cabrera, from Argentina, eagled the par-5 13th on Grand Nationals Lake Course, holing a 60-footer from the fringe, and birdied the two other par 5s in a bogey-free 6-under 65.Cabrera left the course after his morning round without speaking to the media. The 2007 U.S. Open champion and 2009 Masters winner, hes one of two major champions in the field at the PGA Tour event played opposite the British Open.Vegas, from Venezuela, also eagled the 13th -- making a 20-footer -- and birdied the other par 5s in a bogey-free round. He won the 2011 Bob Hope Classic for his lone tour title.It was a great round overall, Vegas said. From the beginning all the way to the end, I felt like I did exactly what I had planned at the beginning of the day. Was able to hit the ball straight from tee, take advantage of the par 5s. I played the par 5s at 4 under, which is really good on this place. I was able to manage some missed shots that I hit to make some good pars to shoot a great round.Former Auburn player Blayne Barber was a stroke back at 66 along with Martin Laird, Ben Crane, Shawn Stefani, Matt Bettencourt, Michael Kim and Lucas Lee.Turned the heat up, Laird said about the temperature. I played nicely. The course is in good shape, so if you put it in the right spot and hit some good shots you can make some putts. I really hit the ball well tee to green today, putted solid but left a couple out there. But overall very happy.The Scot tied for seventh in Nevada two weeks ago in last start.Crane is making his first appearance in the event.This is a big boy golf course, Crane said. You ccould play a major championship here, no problem. White Air VaporMax China. The course is in great shape, feeling great about my game and just played solid all day. Made a couple of those critical saves and just made a great up-and-down with an 8-iron on the last hole for birdie to get it to 5 under, so off to a great start.Stefani birdied four of the first five holes on his back nine, but dropped a stroke on the par-5 16th.I did a lot of great things today and, on top of that, I stayed patient and just kind of tried to play one shot at a time, Stefani said. It was nice to get off to a good start, especially in this heat. It kind of maybe started wearing on me just a little bit the last couple holes, you kind of start getting hungry, trying to eat lunch and started to get a little hotter.Former Auburn player Michael Johnson shot a 67 in his pro debut.I couldnt ask for a better way to start my career, Johnson said. It was awesome. Played with two great guys (Omar Uresti and Dawie van der Walt), which helps. It was a great day, weather was good. I thought we were going to get rained on a little bit, but everything went great.David Toms, the other major champion in the field, also had a 67. Hes 49.Former University of Alabama player Robby Shelton birdied the final hole for a 69 in his second PGA Tour start as a professional. He was third last year while still in college.Matt Gilchrest, a rising senior at Auburn, had a 70.Hunter Mahan shot a 74 in his first event since the birth of his third child.The winner will get a two-year exemption and a spot in the PGA Championship, but will not be exempt for the Masters. Wholesale NFL Jerseys Wholesale Nike NFL Jerseys NFL Jerseys From China Cheap Nike Basketball Jerseys Wholesale Hockey Jerseys China Nike Baseball Jerseys Cheap College Jerseys China Cheap Football Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Canada Wholesale NHL Jerseys Canada Wholesale Nike MLB Jerseys Canada Cheap NBA Jerseys Authentic Canada Stitched Soccer Jerseys Canada Cheap Jerseys Canada NFL ' ' '
NEWTON, Iowa -- Josef Newgarden had made a habit out of finishing second at Iowa Speedway. Custom Cubs Jerseys .He finally had a breakthrough on Sunday -- in a big way.Newgarden cruised to a dominant IndyCar victory in Iowa, setting a series record by leading 282 of 300 laps for his first career oval win.It also was the first win of the season for Newgarden, who finished second in Iowa in 2014 and 2015 and just missed winning the pole this weekend.Newgarden broke his right clavicle and hand in a crash at Texas last month. But he didnt appear to have any issues on Sunday, establishing a huge lead in the opening laps and maintaining his advantage through three cautions on one of the most physically demanding ovals in IndyCar.The win moved Newgarden from fifth to second in the championship race.In some stints it was like a video game. You put on new tires, you catch people at the right point and then you could just slice and dice, Newgarden said.Team Penskes Will Power finished second after consecutive wins -- but hes still third in the standings behind Newgarden and Simon Pagenaud.Scott Dixon was third, followed by Pagenaud and Mikhail Aleshin.Its the 10th straight time that Penske failed to win at Iowa, despite sporting the top three cars in the championship race entering the weekend.But its hard to fault Penske this time.As Tony Kanaan put it, it was as though Newgarden was running an IndyCar while the field had feeder system rides.Newgarden had a 10-second advantage over Dixon when Max Chilton went sideways with just over 50 laps left. The flag evoked flashbacks to 2015, when a poor late pit stop cost Newgarden the race.But the No. 22 car got through pit road cleanly, held off Power and Dixon down the stretch -- at one point putting down the fastest lap of the race -- and fought through lapped traffic with ease.Last year, you learn from those types of deals, said Newgarden, who led over 100 laps last year at Iowa. I had total confidence that we were going to have a good stop. ... The car was just incredible. I was able to put it anywhere.Andretti Autosport had Iowa figured out in the past, with seven wins in the nine previous races here.About the only thing the team provided this year was some early drama.Ryan Hunter-Reay, winner of three of the last four events in Iowa, found himself a lap down after just 30 laps.Hunter-Reay then blew his engine about a third of the way through the race, with Newgarden just one car shy of putting the entire field a lap down.I couldnt get out of my own way on a track I absolutely love, Hunter-Reay said. This was really bad.The caution wiped out Newgardens enormous early lead, which he had stretched to as much as 13 seconds. But it didnt take long for Newgarden to re-establish a comfortable advantage, and he stayed out front after Juan Pablo-Montoyas engine blew as well.Dixon had the final crack at Newgarden on the final restart. But Dixon quickly realized that neither he nor anyone else was catching Newgarden.I knew he was going to be very tough to beat, Dixon said. It seemed like he had spot-on balance and a car with a lot of grip that the rest of us didnt quite have.Newgardens record for laps led surpassed Hunter-Reay, who led 250 in Milwaukee in 2004 -- a feat made all the more remarkable by the fact that his collarbone and hand are still far from healthy.Weve been so close to winning an oval race with this car. We got seconds and, I just hate having a cop-out. That Im having a harder time because of the injuries. It was tough ... but I wasnt going to lose control, Newgarden said. Kyle Schwarber Jersey . Barcelona also left injured defenders Carles Puyol, Javier Mascherano and Jordi Alba out of its squad for the trip to Glasgow.

Daniel Ricciardo believes Kimi Raikkonens grid penalty compounded his issues in Suzuka after the Australian lost out at the start of the race and ended up finishing a lonely sixth.Raikkonen was slapped with a five-place penalty two hours out from the start of the Japanese Grand Prix after taking a new gearbox, which meant Ricciardo jumped up to fourth, but on the slippery side of the grid. What seemed like a stroke of luck turned out to be anything but as Ricciardo and Hamilton -- who started on the same side in second -- both endured sluggish getaways.Raikkonens gearbox penalty was the opposite of a blessing in disguise. It put me on the wet side of the grid and it looked like all of us on that inside line struggled a bit, especially Hamilton, he said. My initial launch was not bad, but then having to go around [Hamilton] I crossed the wet patch and lost out, so then Perez got by.On the first stint we struggled to stay close, and it just seemed like we couldnt follow the cars that well with the dirty air and we diidnt have the straight line speed to make an attack. Drew Smyly Jersey. Ricciardo, who won last time out in Malaysia to break a two year race win drought, never seemed to have the pace of the frontrunners including teammate Max Verstappen who finished in second place for the second week in a row.Nevertheless, the 27-year-old is confident of turning it around for the United States Grand Prix in Austin in a fortnights time.I didnt feel that there was anything else we could do today. It was just a bit lonely out there trying to do my thing, but its one of those things, Ricciardo said. We will try improve the car were we can, but it was just more circumstances, and we will come back in Austin ready to not only eat plenty of barbeque but have a good weekend in track.Ricciardo is currently third in the drivers championship, 101 points behind leader Nico Rosberg and 42 ahead of fourth placed Raikkonen. Wholesale NFL Jerseys Wholesale Nike NFL Jerseys NFL Jerseys From China Cheap Nike Basketball Jerseys Wholesale Hockey Jerseys China Nike Baseball Jerseys Cheap College Jerseys China Cheap Football Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Canada Wholesale NHL Jerseys Canada Wholesale Nike MLB Jerseys CanadaCheap NBA Jerseys Authentic Canada Stitched Soccer Jerseys Canada Cheap Jerseys Canada NFL ' ' '
BEREA, Ohio -- Rookie Cody Kessler uncoiled an ice wrap around his upper body as Charlie Whitehurst limped by with an elastic sleeve on his left knee. J.A. Happ Jersey.Two more Browns quarterbacks are black, blue and beaten up.A day after Kessler and Whitehurst were both injured in a 33-13 loss to the New England Patriots, Clevelands quarterback situation was as messy and unclear as it has been in many weeks.And around here, thats saying something.Kessler is recovering from a painful injury to his chest and ribs when he was drilled by linebacker Donta Hightower in the first quarter.But after X-rays on Kessler did not reveal any breaks, Browns coach Hue Jackson said Monday theres a chance that the third-round draft pick, who vaulted up the depth chart after Robert Griffin III (shoulder) and Josh McCown (collarbone) were injured in the first two weeks, will practice this week and play Sunday at Tennessee.Im sure its a pain tolerance issue, every day is going to change, said Jackson, who has endured a season full of hardship in his first season with Cleveland.It is today, it is tomorrow and practice is Wednesday. We will see where he is then.Whitehurst may not be as ready. After becoming the fifth quarterback to play in five games for the Browns this season, he hyperextended his knee in the final minutes and is listed day to day.For a change, though, its not all bad news for the Browns.McCown has been cleared to practice and could be in uniform against the Titans. The 37-year-old McCown wants to play after spending the past three weeks watching his teammates come up short.Anytime you find yourself in a situation like our team is where its gone this way and youre 0-5, I think its all hands on deck, and youve got to want to help, he said. You watch tape from yesterday and you watch the effort that guys put forth and theyre battling, and you just want to be a part of it.Jackson may finally have more than one option this week.Well have three guys standing out there (at practice), he quipped. So well be able to pick somebody out of the group.At the rate Clevelands QBs are falling, it may be hard to find a volunteer.McCown has been out since breaking his left collarbone in Week 2 against Baltimore. He showed incredible toughness by playing three quarters with the fracture, and less than a month later said its realistic hell face the Titans.Yeah, Im going to practice Wednesday, and thats the next step to this thing, he said. So well see how it plays out.But Im looking forward to that part of it. When youre kind of going through what were going through, just to be out there on the practice field and to get back moving around like that, its exciting for me. And then well see where it goes. But Im looking forward to helping any way I can and getting back out there with the guys.If Kessler and McCown are both ready, Jacksons decision gets more complicated.Does he go with Kessler, who has shown growth in three starts and could develop into the teams long-term answer at QB? Or does he return to McCown, the steady veteran and leader who has endeared himself to teammates and may give the Browns their best chance to win?Jackson must wait to see how both players practice before he decides.McCowns return to practice is a needed positive jolt for the young and winless Browns, who until Sundays blowout have been in every game.Its big, center John Greco said of the QBs return. I know Josh. Im sure he wanted to play that following week.But now that hes got some rest itll be good to have his leadership out there with us actually on the field. Hes out there as a vocal leader, but his physical presence is huge for this team and if hes out there its awesome for us.Game notes C Cam Erving will return to practice after missing four games with a bruised lung sustained in the opener. Ervings loss forced the Browns to move Greco to center. Im definitely excited to get back out there, Erving said.---AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and http://twitter.com/AP-NFL Justin Smoak Jersey . Didier Drogba gave away the penalty that put Senegal one goal away from a major upset, but the veteran striker will get another chance -- probably his last -- at the World Cup after Salomon Kalous injury-time strike sealed the Ivorians place in Brazil next year. Jesse Barfield Jersey . A knee to the thigh might have stung him the most, but his sixth straight double-double made up for the brief burst of pain. http://www.authenticbluejaysgear.com/blue-jays-roy-halladay-jersey/ . There are surprises among the Vezina candidates, but most of the others are standard top-tier performers, even if the two Hart Trophy runners-ups have never been quite as good as they have been through the first half of the season. AKRON, Ohio -- Matt Kuchar finished with a 12-foot birdie at the Bridgestone Invitational, which had no bearing on the outcome but still had a few ramifications.Kuchar tied for third, so that putt was worth an additional $249,250. It cost Jordan Spieth enough world ranking points that Dustin Johnson moved ahead of him to No. 2 by the slimmest of margins.And that birdie putt could send Kuchar to the Olympics.Whether he earns a spot in Rio de Janeiro is now out of Kuchars hands. The Americans are allowed the maximum four players because all of them are among the top 15 in the world ranking, and the birdie allowed him to move to No. 15. Still to be announced is which four Americans will go to Rio.Of the top four in the world ranking -- Johnson (2), Spieth (3), Bubba Watson (5) and Rickie Fowler (7) -- Watson is the only one who has said he is going. The biggest question marks of that group are Spieth and Fowler. Thats why Kuchars birdie putt was so important, because if two Americans choose not to go, those spots could end up going to Patrick Reed and Kuchar.Kuchar wants to play in the Olympics, though its still a long way off. Not only does he need at least two players to withdraw, he has to be sure he stays among the top 15 in the world ranking after this week.Olympic qualifying is based on the world ranking published next Monday, and that brings Phil Mickelson into the equation. Mickelson would have to finish alone in second at the Scottish Open -- he won the last time it was held at Castle Stuart -- to move ahead of Kuchar and be in position for any Olympic withdrawals. If Lefty were to win, he would have a mathematical chance to move ahead of Reed as the first U.S. alternate.J.B. Holmes, Shane Lowry and Chris Wood also are at Castle Stuart and could bump Kuchar from the top 15 if they were to win. A victory by Wood likely would be enough for him to reach No. 15 and give the U.K. three players.---HURLEY Game notes Billy Hurley III already delivered one of the most inspirational stories of the year when the former Naval officer won the Quicken Loans National at Congressional not far from his Virginia home, a tournament created to honor the military.Then, he chose to give up his spot in the British Open to honor a family commitment -- his sisters wedding.And it keeps getting better.For the last few years, PGA Tour rules officials and other key employees have been receiving handwritten notes from Hurley thanking them for their work. When asked about this, Hurley smiled and said, I write a lot of notes.Its a lost art that goes back decades. Arnold Palmer once showed the way to a young Jack Nicklaus on writing thank-you notes to tournament directors in the 1960s. Hurley goes beyond that.I write to the tournament director, the superintendent and title sponsors, at least at the tournaments Im playing, he said. And then the whole tour staff. Theres a lot of people that make this possible.Hurley doesnt know where he picked up this habit.I just think its the right thing to do, he said. They work hard for us. I dont know what their salaries are, but its not what ours are.---HOME SWEET HOME: Shane Lowry is playing the PGA Tour as a member for the first time this year, and what he hopes is many years to come.But he has no plans for moving his home base away from Ireland. His role model is Padraig Harrington, a PGA Tour member for more than a decade who has never followed othher Europeans by getting a home in Florida. Marcus Stroman Jersey. I cant see myself moving to the States at all, Lowry said. As everyone knows, Im quite friendly with Padraig, so hes done it for the last 15 years, traveled over and back. Im not finding it too difficult.Lowry typically plays two or three weeks in a row before going back to Ireland. He usually can get out Sunday night and be home Monday.Dublin is my home now in Ireland, and I see that being the case for the next while, he said.And how does he practice in the winter?I dont, Lowry said with a laugh. The weather is obviously not great. You can get out and hit shots for an hour. I just need to keep the rust away for me. ... I might play nine holes with my friends. Im not one of these guys that feels like I need to practice all every day. If I play nine holes four, five times a week, Im pretty happy.---McGIRT DOES EUROPE: Memorial winner William McGirt is excited about his first trip to the British Open, mainly because of links golf, but also one other oddity.Ive never been to Europe, McGirt said.Yes, he has a passport. McGirt played in South America when he was on the Web.com Tour, and he played in Malaysia in 2012. He qualified for the Open by being in the top 20 in the FedEx Cup, and hes going over on the charter from Philadelphia.Im looking forward to playing a completely different style of golf, he said. I grew up playing a golf course not manicured anywhere close to what we have out here. So I learned to play bump-and-run shots. Being able to use your imagination, thats the biggest thing Im looking forward to, where theres no such thing as a standard shot.---DIVOTS: Bubba Watson is all in for the Olympics, but he is leaving caddie Ted Scott at home. Watson said longtime friend Randall Wells will be on the bag for him in Rio. ... Jean Van de Velde, who lost a three-shot lead on the final hole in the 1999 British Open at Carnoustie, is making his PGA Tour Champions debut this week in the Dicks Sporting Goods Classic. ... The Greenbrier Classic has been canceled because of deadly flooding, but the charter flight to the British Open is still going. The same plane that takes players and others who would have been at The Greenbrier is the one that takes them from Scotland to the Canadian Open. The only difference? It now leaves Sunday night from Philadelphia. ... John Daly will be keeping a busy schedule the next two months. He begins his stretch of majors at Royal Troon for the British Open and Carnoustie for the Senior British Open. Then, its back over the ocean to New Jersey for the PGA Championship at Baltusrol. Two weeks later, he has the U.S. Senior Open at Scioto in Ohio before heading back across the Atlantic to play the Czech Masters on the European Tour.---STAT OF THE WEEK: The winners of the three World Golf Championships this year all won in their previous start -- Adam Scott (Honda Classic, WGC-Cadillac Championship), Jason Day (Arnold Palmer Invitational, WGC-Dell Match Play) and Dustin Johnson (U.S. Open, WGC-Bridgestone Invitational).---FINAL WORD: I work in the Army 14 years. ... And training every morning, thats why we come to play golf, I think really easy. -- Thongchai Jaidee, a former paratrooper in Thailand, after his eighth European Tour victory in the French Open. Wholesale NFL Jerseys Wholesale Nike NFL Jerseys NFL Jerseys From ChinaCheap Nike Basketball Jerseys Wholesale Hockey Jerseys China Nike Baseball Jerseys Cheap College Jerseys China Cheap Football Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys CanadaWholesale NHL Jerseys Canada Wholesale Nike MLB Jerseys Canada Cheap NBA Jerseys Authentic Canada Stitched Soccer Jerseys Canada Cheap Jerseys Canada NFL ' ' '
