HOUSTON -- Texans defensive end J. Discont Nike Air Max Shoes Cheap .J. Watt said Sunday that he isnt certain when hell return from his recent back surgery.I cant put a solid start date on when I can play, Watt, who has never missed a regular-season game in his first five seasons with the Texans, said. I dont plan on missing my first game, but I cant promise it. Im doing everything I can to protect my body, but the older I get, the more I realize you have to be smart.Watt had surgery on July 20 to repair a herniated disk in his back. His comments at Sundays first day of training camp were his first since the procedure, which sources have said could sideline him for six to 10 weeks and potentially jeopardize his availability for the early part of Houstons 2016 schedule.Last season I had a herniated disk in my back, Watt said. But it wasnt a terrible herniation, so obviously I could keep playing. And then throughout the offseason, there would be slight flare-ups here and there, but wed always get it under control. So it was nothing really bad.Right before training camp, we wanted to do a checkup and just to make sure and see where I was at, he added. Once the MRI came back, thats when we realized it was worse than we thought. Thats when we knew, and thats why it happened so close to training camp.Its not because its 90 degrees and I just didnt feel like being out there, Watt quipped.Watt, the APs Defensive Player of the Year in 2014 and 2015 with a combined 38 sacks, said the surgery was a success.We took a whole bunch of junk out of my back, so now I feel good, Watt said of the procedure, which removed the herniated disk. For the first two weeks, [the doctor] told me to just walk and lay down. Thats my rehab. Thats all Ive been doing. But they said as soon as the two weeks are up, I can ramp up quickly.Watt, who said he couldnt recall the specific name of the surgery, said initially hearing the recommendation was difficult.It was tough. Its one of those phone calls you dont want to get. But its going to be the best for me in the long run. Its one of those things where Im glad we found it, because if we didnt, it couldve been a whole lot worse, he said.The fact that were getting it taken care of now and Im going to be healthy for the season -- thats what matters most.Watt missed most of Houstons training camp in 2012, his second season with the Texans, and said he would draw on that experience during his recovery.In 2012 I missed all of training camp and didnt have a problem there, so I dont see this being a problem, Watt said.?Watt appeared to be feeling well at Sundays first day of training camp. While he remains on the physically unable to perform list, coach Bill OBrien said Watt is progressing well and remains right on track with his projected recovery.The 4,660 fans at NRG Park didnt expect to see Watt, who jogged to the field about midway through the teams practice. Naturally, the unexpected good news earned him a lengthy ovation. Watt watched most of the remainder of practice from the sideline, where he sat with an 8-year-old boy awaiting a heart transplant. The boy was attending Houstons camp as part of the Make-A-Wish Foundation.I jogged today a little bit, Watt said with a smile, referring to his entrance. They probably werent terribly happy to see me do that. But I feel good. Thats whats crazy. I feel good, my body feels good. Its just a matter of now listening to [the doctors].Ill do whatever they tell me to do, just so that Im healthy for the first game.With stitches from the surgery still in his back, Watt said the doctors are advising him not to stand for long periods of time or sweat. Because of that, he might not be on the sidelines on Monday or Tuesday. But with Wednesday representing the two-week mark after his surgery, the stitches are expected to be removed, which will allow Watt to begin heavier activities.As soon as the doctors tell me its safe for me to be on the field, Im going to be out there, Watt said. Theres nothing that hurts me more than watching practice and not being out there.In addition to the herniated disk, Watt also played with a broken hand and a torn groin during the 2015 season. He had surgery to fix the groin issue earlier this offseason.It was the roughest year of my career; theres no question, Watt said Sunday. But thats something that comes along with playing in the NFL. Youre going to put your body through the wringer. Youre going to go out there and play hurt. Thats just the way it goes in the league.Im doing everything I can to protect my body, and the older I get, the more I realize that you have to be smart in the way you do things and you have to be conscious of your body, Watt said.However, Watt noted that he did understand the difference between his other medical issues and the severity of back surgery.The back is a little bit different than any other injury, Watt said. Ive got to listen to the doctors a little bit more on this one. You cant just feel it out, because its your spine. Youve got be smart, which Im doing.Because of that, Watt isnt ready to give a confirmed timetable on his return.Im five years into this now, Watt said of his career. Ive learned that if you end up missing a game or two in the short-term to save yourself for the long term, thats smart.But thats not to say Im going to miss a game or two, he added. Im out here with the mindset to play Week 1. If it comes Week 1 and they say Im not ready, then Im not ready. But my mindset is to work to play Game 1.For now, Watt says his focus is on helping his teammates in whatever small way that he can.As soon as Im healthy enough to come out here and stand up, I will, Watt said. Im going to be out here helping however I can. I think its great for the young guys to get reps because I think we have a great defensive line and a great line coach.We have a really good team full of great players, Watt added. We have a lot of guys who truly enjoy being around each other. Theres just a good chemistry and a good vibe around our building. I think we have a good squad and Im not worried. I think theyre going to do a great job. Cheap Air Max Discount . -- Matt Ryan needed one of the best games of his career to lead the Falcons and their depleted offence out of their three-game losing streak last week. Discount Air Max Shoes Wholesale .

ORCHARD PARK, N. Cheap Soccer Jerseys China .Y. -- Retirement proved to be temporary for Percy Harvin, the once-dynamic playmaker whos back in the NFL and returning to Buffalo to reinforce the Bills injury-depleted group of receivers.Using the past six months to rest his mind and rehab numerous injuries that led him to walk away from football in April, Harvin was back on the practice field Tuesday, shortly after signing a one-year contract.It felt good, just the smell of the grass again, the smell of the pads when I walked in the locker room, Harvin said. Man, when youre away from it, you miss so much of those things.Then, breaking into a smile as beads of sweat dribbled down his forehead, he added: The time I took it was well needed. But it was time to go back to work.Harvin returns to the team he essentially walked out on a year ago, when he elected not to travel overseas for Buffalos game at London. He blamed that decision on the personal frustrations he felt in being in constant pain from a knee injury that was also affecting his hip.Limited to playing just five games last season, Harvin finished with 19 catches for 218 yards and a touchdown before being placed on the season-ending injured reserve .He said he had surgery on one of his knees in January, and spent much of his time off working out.The only question mark is when the 28-year-old might be ready to play.Well see. I think I could, Harvin said, when asked if he might be available to play on Monday night, when the Bills (4-4) travel to play Seattle (4-2-1).He cautioned he wasnt going to rush back and risk being hurt, even if it meant missing a game against one of his former teams.I just want to be the best I can be and play at the level that I know I can, Harvin said.A more realistic expectation would have Harvin making his debut at Cincinnati on Nov. 20, once the Bills return from their bye week.Staying healthy has been an issue for Harvin, the NFLs Offensive Rookie of the Year in 2009. In his first four seasons in Minnesota, he combined for 3,302 yards receiving and 29 touchdowns (including four rushing and five returns). Over the past three years, hes managed just 728 yards receiving and three scores combined with three teams.Though the Bills are taking a wait-and-see approach with Harvin, they need immediate help given the state of their banged-up offense.Their top receiving threat, Sammy Watkins (left foot), is on injured reserve and not eligible to begin practicing for another three weeks. No. 2 receiver Robert Woods is playing despite an injury to his right foot. And speedster Marquise Goodwins status is uncertain after missing one game because of a concussion.I wouldnt say desperate, but were always looking no matter what position to upgrade, general manager Doug Whaley said.Whaley understood the reasons behind Harvins decision to retire in April. And yet he made sure to keep tabs on Harvin in the event he might have a change of heart.Once we started going down this road, we said, `Maybe after getting healthy, lets see where his mind is, Whaley said. When we reached out, he said he was interested, and now hes with the Buffalo Bills.Harvin didnt give resuming his career much thought until he started to begin feeling healthy last summer. Even then, he didnt want to make a snap decision.It wasnt until the Bills contacted him about two weeks ago, when Harvin was forced to make up his mind.I kind of just walked around my house for a few hours still not knowing whether I was going to come back or not, Harvin recalled.He decided to return after consulting with his family and friends, including several retired NFL players.It helps, too, that hes familiar with Bills players, the offensive playbook and coaching staff.Thats my boy, Im definitely excited, quarterback Tyrod Taylor said. Taylor and Harvin grew up in the Virginia Beach, Virginia, area and played high school football and basketball against each other.Percy obviously is a dynamic playmaker, said fullback Jerome Felton, who also played with Harvin in Minnesota. If hes healthy, youre adding an A-plus player to the team.In signing Harvin, Buffalo freed up a roster spot by placing starting safety Aaron Williams on injured reserve.Though under contract through 2018, Williams career is in question after sustaining his second neck injury in just over a calendar year in a 28-25 loss at Miami on Oct. 23, when he was blindsided by Dolphins receiver Jarvis Landry.Last week, his father told The Associated Press that Williams plans to wait until the offseason to determine whether to continue playing.---AP NFL website: http://pro32.ap.org and http://twitter.com/AP-NFL Cheap Puma Soccer Jerseys . -- Yogi Ferrell orchestrates pretty much everything in Indianas offence. Wholesale Soccer Jerseys .S District Court against Major League Baseball, the Office of the Commissioner and his own union, the MLBPA. http://www.cheapsoccerjerseysbywholesale.com/ . The Vancouver coach and an announced sellout crowd of 18,910 watched in dismay as the Canucks lost 7-4 to the New York Islanders on Monday night by squandering a 3-0 lead in the third period. UNCASVILLE, Conn. -- Jasmine Thomas scored 21 points and the Connecticut Sun rallied from an 11-point deficit in the second half to beat the Indiana Fever 89-87 on Tuesday night.The Fever (16-16) fell one game back of Chicago for the fourth seed in the playoffs, which includes a first-round bye in the postseason.It was a back-and-forth first half before the Fever closed with the final five points, making it 47-41 at the break. The advantage grew to 11 in the third quarter before Connecticut (12-20) rallied.The game was tied at 80 with just over 2 minutes left before Thomas hit a 3-pointter from the wing. China Soccer Jerseys. Jonquel Jones three-point play with 1:07 left made it 87-82.The Fever had a chance to tie it, but Shenise Johnsons 3-pointer from the corner bounced off the rim with 17.9 seconds left. Thomas hit two free throws to seal the win.Catchings, who will retire at the end of the season, moved within two rebounds of Lisa Leslies career record of 3,007.

This story is part of ESPN The Magazines Oct. Air Max 90 Cheap Wholesale . 31 NBA Preview Issue. Subscribe today!Boston CelticsOverall: 28 Title track: 21 Ownership: 23 Coaching: 9 Players: 11 Fan relations: 21 Affordability: 62 Stadium experience:?47 Bang for the buck: 84 Change from last year: +29Under the guidance of coach Brad Stevens, the Celtics continue to trend upward, both on the court and in the Ultimate Standings. On the strength of their roster and fan relations showings, Boston leaped 29 spots in this years poll.Whats goodIn just three seasons on the Boston bench, Stevens has emerged as one of the brightest coaching minds in the NBA -- and even if he downplays his impact on the Celtics increasing win total, the fans dont. Stevens helped Boston vault to No. 9 in coaching this year (up eight spots from a year ago), slotting him in a top 10 helmed by his good buddies, Spurs coach Gregg Popovich -- the only NBA coach ranked higher than Stevens -- and Patriots coach Bill Belichick, both of whom have raved about Stevens. The addition of Al Horford and the All-Star emergence of Isaiah Thomas helped Boston jump 23 spots in players. The roster now ranks just outside the top 10, at No. 11 (third in the NBA).Whats badBeing a Celtics fan isnt cheap, especially for those making the commute from the suburbs. Only seven NBA teams charge more than the Celtics average $67 ticket, not to mention parking underneath the Garden (that will run you $45) and concessions ($8.50 beers add up in a hurry). Bostons rising win total improved its bang for the buck over 2015, but fans still need to lean on public transportation and hunt for low-priced balcony seats to maximize their dollars.Whats newBostons biggest overall leap (30 spots) came in fan relations, thanks in large part to how the team has embraced social media. The Celtics routinely engage their fans and take them behind the scenes on Twitter and Instagram, thanks to behind-the-scenes videos and Twitter Q&As. Off the court, Boston and its Shamrock Foundation run promotions and auctions that might help you sneak into Media Day or let Kelly Olynyk accompany your child to his or her first day of school. Meanwhile, only three NBA teams scored better in making it enjoyable to watch games when I dont attend in person, perhaps thanks to CSN announcers Mike Gorman and Tom Heinsohn, who form one of the longest-serving duos in the business.Next: Atlanta Hawks?| Full rankings Air Max 90 For Sale Cheap .

SAO PAULO -- Rugby player Isadora Cerullo never lived in Brazil. Cheap Adidas Nmd Shoes Free Shipping . Fencer Ghislain Perrier speaks very little Portuguese. Golfer Miriam Nagl played abroad most of her life.Theyll still be parading under the host nations flag at the opening ceremony of the Rio de Janeiro Games come Aug. 5.Cerullo, Perrier and Nagl are among several athletes who will be fulfilling their Olympic dream because of Brazils shortage of athletes in sports it automatically qualified for as host. Without an Olympic tradition to fall back on, the country was left to rapidly recruit an international band of athletes for events such as field hockey, golf, rowing, wrestling and rugby.Their ties, in many cases, are weak. Some have lived away for most of their lives but were born in Brazil. Some were born abroad but have Brazilian parents or grandparents. Some had almost no links to the country but were hired by local federations and became naturalized.I would have very slim chances of participating in the Olympics if I hadnt made the switch to play for Brazil, said Nagl, a Brazilian-born golfer who left the country when she was 8 years old and had always played for Germany. When this idea came up and I realized that I had a chance to make it to Rio, I started dreaming about being at the Maracana Stadium during the opening ceremony.The 35-year-old Nagl, who plays in the Ladies European Tour and is No. 445 in the womens world rankings, said she hadnt given much thought about representing her native country until being contacted by golf officials after Rio was awarded the games.By making the switch, I gave myself a chance to be in the Olympics, but I also thought about how this could be good for Brazil, about how I could become a good ambassador and help the game develop, she said.Brazil had only two foreign athletes in its delegation at the 2012 London Games -- American basketball player Larry Taylor and Chinese table-tennis player Gui Lin. Now about 20 international athletes will be taking advantage of the many extra spots available for the home nation in Rio.Rugby is one of the sports in which Brazil lacks tradition but will compete anyway. Hoping to put on a good show in front of the home fans, the local federation launched a worldwide campaign -- entitled Brazilian Rugby Players Wanted -- to attract athletes playing abroad.A few who responded to the campaign will be in Rio, including American-born Cerullo, who has Brazilian parents but had never visited the country until after contacting Brazilian rugby officials. Two Brazilian brothers who lived in France also made it to the team, as well a Brazilian-born athlete who lived and played in Argentina. England-born Juliano Fiori and France-born Laurent Bourda-Couhet, who has a Brazilian mother, will also play.Brazils fencing team earned eight additional spots as hosts and included three international players for the games. Among them are Ghislain Perrier, who was born in Brazil but left the country as a baby after being adopted by a French family, and Italian-born Nathalie Moellhausen, who competed for Italy at the 2012 London Games but chose to be with the hosts in Rio to fulfill the wish of her Brazilian grandmother.I dont have many connections to Brazil, admitted Perrier, who has lived and trained in France most of his life. I spent vacation in Brazil a few times, but I know only a few people there.The fencing team will also have Marta Baeza, who was born in Brazil but had been competing for Spain, and reserve team member Katherine Miller, who was born in the United States.Another foreigner, Hungarys Emese Takacs, tried to make the team but she was dropped after her citizenship was contested in court by a Brazilian athlete who had been left out of the squad. Takacs was accused of faking her marriage in Brazil to become naturalized.She had the legal documents but we always suspected it was a fraud, the Brazilian who had lost her spot, Amanda Simeao, told local media. She was married to a Brazilian but had a boyfriend in Hungary.Takacs denied wrongdoing but lost her battles in court.Another controversial case was water polo goalkeeper Slobodan Soro, a Serbian whose naturalization process was approved just before the games. He and center Josip Vrlic of Croatia were hired to play for Brazil despite not having direct connections to the country. They were among five foreign-born players picked to play for the Brazilian team by Croat coach Ratko Rudic, the gold medalist with Croatia at the London Games.The others were Spains Adria Delgado, who has a Brazilian father; Italian-born Paulo Salemi, son of a Brazilian mother; and Cuban Ives Gonzalez, who is married to a Brazilian. The team also has Brazilian-born Felipe Perrone, who used to play for the Spanish national team before joining the hosts for the Rio Games.They have been playing for Brazilian clubs for some time, this is not something that just happened, said Ricardo Cabral, who is in charge of Brazils water polo team. We created an Olympic project to help the sport develop and make Brazil more competitive. Because of the Olympics in Rio, there is more investment available and we want to take advantage of that to give the sport more visibility.---Tales Azzoni on Twitter: http://twitter.com/tazzoni .

LONDON -- A British court has ordered Russian marathon runner Liliya Shobukhova to repay prize and appearance money from the London race after being banned for doping, event organizers said on Tuesday.The High Court judgment mandates Shobukhova to repay 377,961.62 pounds ($498,000) plus costs relating to her 2010 London Marathon victory and second-place finish the following year in the British capital.The next step is to get the judgment enforced in Russia, London Marathon chief executive Nick Bitel said.

Dewi Morris believes Bristol are a changed team and are ready to make the step up to Premiership rugby ahead of Wednesdays Championship final second-leg, live on Sky Sports 1 HD from 7. Nike NFL Jerseys China .30pm. This year, Bristol have decided to turn up in the Championship play-offs and they are my favourites to win and gain promotion. Their stadium is obviously partially built, but they have still sold 16,000 tickets so its an absolute sell-out.They have a 15-point buffer going into the game which is a good advantage to have for the first time in their history. They have been in the wilderness of the Championship for seven years but they are just eighty minutes away from the promised land which is the Premiership, and I cant see Doncaster doing too much to stop them. Will Hurrell crossed for Doncaster in the first-leg If Bristol are to do it, they deserve it. Their forwards coach, Mark Bakewell, has added a little bit of steel to the pack which has eliminated silly errors from their game. They dispatched Bedford easily in the semis and did a good job on Doncaster in the first leg with 59 per cent possession and 65 per cent territory, which suggests to me that they are very structured, very pragmatic, very concentrated on the job in hand and have been that way since the start of the play-offs.Despite Doncaster being the underdog, I would like to think they have a chance. They will be proud and will fight, having beaten Bristol in November 27-39, so they are used to winning at the Ashton Gate Stadium. Bristol take a 15-point advantage into the second-leg of the final against Doncaster But this is a different Bristol side with a different psyche and more commitment than the one Doncaster played seven months ago. They know that they have underachieved over the years but this could be the last piece of the jigsaw to get into the Premiership which is when the really hard work starts. Everyone in Bristol can celebrate if they are promoted, and look forward to playing in the elite league.Im looking forward to the encounter. It should be a good atmosphere and Im expecting Bristol to put on a good performance. It will be a hearty display from Doncaster but I think Bristol, if they are to go up, will want to go out with a bang in front of their own supporters. Bristol have developed a pragmatic style of play this season Over the past few years Bristol have struggled on the big stage losing to London Welsh in 2014 and to Worcester in 2015, but I really dont see it happening to them this time.They are a more relaxed group. I think what has happened is that they are focussing on the job in hand rather than development, which they can do once they are in the Premiership. They have developed a style of hard-nosed, pragmatic rugby and everyone has bought into that.It is not too flashy but it is very effective and very powerful while they are also the richest in the Championship with a squad of 50 players which they have stretched to the maximum because of the high amount of injuries.There are no mixed messages, they are all reading off the same script and it looks like they are going to do it.  Also See: Rugby on Sky Follow @SkySportsRugby Pundits Fixtures and results Cheap Nike NFL Jerseys Free Shipping .com) - The women will also have a new champion at the Australian Open. Stitched Nike NFL Jerseys .

OKLAHOMA CITY -- For decades, basketball players have dreamed of being like Mike.Thunder guard Russell Westbrook really is like Mike.So says Mike himself.Basketball great Michael Jordan inducted Westbrook into the Oklahoma Hall of Fame on Thursday night and heaped high praise on Westbrook, one of the most visible and accomplished Jordan Brand athletes.I am truly a fan of his, said Jordan, the six-time NBA champion and five-time MVP. When I watch him play, I see a lot of resemblance of his passion for the game of basketball, the way I played the game of basketball.Westbrook is a two-time All-Star MVP and was the 2014-15 scoring champion. Last season, he posted 18 triple-doubles. This season, he has three triple-doubles and is averaging a Jordan-esque 31.8 points per game.Even with all that, Westbrook declined when asked to compare himself to Jordan, instead focusing on how fortunate he feels to have built a relationship with him.Michaels obviously the best that ever played the game, Westbrook said. Hes done so many things for the game of basketball, so many ways and broken so many barriers for guys like myself to be able to go out and compete at a high level, so it means a lot in that aspect. Off the court, hes carried a great brand. Its something I eventually want to do when Im done.Jordan commended Westbrook for re-signing with the Thunder after Kevin Durant left and signed with the Golden State Warriors.Im not here to try to bash aanyone thats not here, Jordan said, drawing laughter from the crowd at the Cox Convention Center. Cheap Jerseys China. Everybody has a choice. Im not saying you dont have a choice. Everybody has a choice, and when I saw that he chose to stay here in Oklahoma, I was so proud.Westbrook appreciated the fact that Jordan, the current Charlotte Hornets owner, answered Thunder owner Clay Bennetts call to attend.M.J.s one of those guys -- obviously, Im a part of his brand, and hes a guy that respects you and the things that you do, Westbrook said. He took time out of his day to come all the way to Oklahoma City to do this for me is an amazing honor. Im happy to have him here.In 2015, Westbrook won the NBAs Community Assist Award for his philanthropic efforts. He has opened several reading rooms, providing books for kids in low-income areas. Westbrook served at his WhyNot Foundations annual Thanksgiving Dinner at the Boys and Girls Club on Tuesday. Jordan specifically mentioned Westbrooks off-the-court accomplishments as a reason he was proud to be the presenter.It was a memorable night for Westbrook, whose teammates all dressed up and attended the banquet.Its an unbelievable honor to go in, he said. Its definitely a blessing. Its something that you wont forget.---Follow Cliff Brunt on Twitter: www.twitter.com/CliffBruntAP . Cheap Nike NFL Jerseys Cheap Adidas Hockey Jerseys Wholesale Nike Baseball Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys From China Wholesale Jerseys China Wholesale NFL Jerseys China Cheap Nike NFL Jerseys Free Shipping Cheap Nike NBA Jerseys Authentic Cheap NHL Jerseys Canada Cheap Nike MLB Jerseys Cheap Soccer Jerseys China NCAA Jerseys Cheap Nike NHL Jerseys China Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys Store Cheap Football Jerseys Store Wholesale Soccer Jerseys Jerseys NCAA China Jerseys NFL Cheap Cheap Nike NBA Jerseys ' ' '

Dallas police have completed their investigation into the June 5 shooting of Denver Broncos cornerback Aqib Talib. Wholesale Air Max China . They concluded that he shot himself in the leg, according to WFAA television.Dallas police will not file charges against Talib, WFAA-TV reported.When reached by ESPN and the Denver Post, a media relations representative with the Dallas Police Department would not confirm the WFAA report.The Broncos said Tuesday they would have no comment on the report.To this point, Talib has offered few specifics on the incident other than, I want to move on and concentrate on the season.Talib suffered a gunshot wound to his lower right leg in the early hours of June 5 in Dallas. He avoided surgery and was released from the hospital the following day. The incident forced him to miss the Broncos visit to the White House to commemorate their Super Bowl 50 victory.According to the police report, Talib said he didnt know who shot him and that the bullet entered into the rear of his right thigh then exited his right calf.An earlier police report indicated that a witness said he had been with Talib in a large group of people in a park when he heard one gunshot. The witness said he then found Talib on the ground and took him to the hospital.The narrative listed on the report offered that Talib had been shot by an unknown suspect. That initial police report did not reveal whether Talib had a weapon, but it did indicate that one gram of marijuana was found during the investigation. That police report did not indicate whether the marijuana belonged to Talib.Dallas police did confirm on Aug. 17 that they were still investigating the possibility that Talib shot himself.The NFL continues to investigate. Multiple league sources told ESPNs Adam Schefter in recent days that the league had not yet made a decision as to whether Talib would face a suspension.Internally, the Broncos have at least discussed what they would do if Talib were suspended for one or more games.Each time he has been asked about the potential for league discipline for Talib, including as recently as two weeks ago, Broncos executive vice president of football operations/general manager John Elway has said, We havent heard anything, and I dont know what will ultimately be the decision.Talib did not have surgery following the shooting. He remained hospitalized for one night and missed the Broncos trip to the White House. He practiced in training camp for the first time Aug. 8. He has started all four games this season.Talib, in his ninth NFL season, had three interceptions -- two of which were returned for touchdowns -- and 45 tackles during the Broncos championship season in 2015.The three-time Pro Bowl selection has also played for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and New England Patriots. Wholesale Air Max For Sale . Coach Mike Munchak says Fokou stretched ligaments in his left knee Oct. 13 against Seattle, which could keep out up to five weeks even though the linebacker didnt need surgery. Cheap Wholesale Air Max Shoes .Y. -- Bills receiver Stevie Johnson has a bone to pick with the NFL schedule maker. http://www.airmaxauthentic.com/ .ca. Kerry, Just watched the shootout in the Coyotes/Leafs game and I have to ask, why was the James van Riemsdyk goal allowed to count? All of the video replays we were shown on TV were inconclusive about whether the puck had entirely crossed the line or not. CANCUN, Mexico -- LeRon Smith made a crucial observation and followed it with a confident prediction sitting among his teammates on the bench Tuesday night.The Auburn forward watched again and again as Texas Techs Aaron Ross drove into the paint, hollered for the ball and hopped for easy layups. He watched as his teams lead got smaller and smaller, too.I was sitting on the bench, I asked, `Why doesnt someone just block his shot? Smith said. I said, `Theres no way Im going to let him get that layup.Smith came up with the block, swatting Rosss potential tying layup with four seconds left out to Texas Techs Zach Smith, who sailed a 3-pointer over the basket at the buzzer, and the Tigers held on for a 67-65 win in the Cancun Challenge.Mustapha Heron scored 15 points, Daniel Purifoy added 11 and Jared Harper netted 10 for Auburn (4-0), which led by 15 points with 11:15 left.Aaron Ross led the Red Raiders (3-1) with 17 points, Keenan Evans had 13 and Devon Thomas and Smith added 11 and 10, respectively. Smith grabbed 10 rebounds.Texas Tech is an NCAA tournament-caliber team, Auburn coach Bruce Pearl said. Theyre going to have a really good year. They didnt didnt get off to a very good start in either half and we did. I thought we played really good basketball in the first half.It was all Tigers at halftime. They led by 15 and dominated from midrange and added five 3-pointers. But the Red Raiders began to chip away and turned the rebounding battle in the second half, pulling down 20 to Auburns 11.Meanwhile, the Auburn offense went cold. Dunas snapped 4:18 skid without a field goal with a steal and fast-break layup to make it 65-59 with 1:18 to play.It didnt slow the Red Raiders, who continued a 28-15 run that ended when Thomas hit a layup with 32 seconds left to cut Auburns lead to 65-63. But the Tigers got free throws from Harper, who was 6 for 10 from the line but hit two in the final 255 seconds to keep the game out of reach. Air Max Shoes Wholesale China. THE BIG PICTUREAuburn: The Tigers are 4-0 for the first time since 2011-12 and four underclassmen are helping them get it done. Bryce Brown, Jared Harper and Daniel Purifoy entered the game averaging in double figures and all chipped in equally against the Tigers. Auburn will try to win its fifth straight for the first time since 2004-05 on Tuesday.Texas Tech: Although they couldnt take the lead late, the Red Raiders, on their fourth head coach in six years, were able to keep the game within range. They did so with some explosive plays, including Zach Smiths furious slam dunk that cut Auburns lead to 53-45 with 7:52 left.PROTECTING THE RIMMaybe assistant coach Chuck Perkins overheard Smith as he noticed Ross cutting free to the basket?Pearl said Perkins suggested they put Smith in the game late. He had played just over 12 minutes to that point.Coach Persons suggested that I put LaRon in and I went with it, and it was a great call, Pearl said. Because LaRon is our best rim protector. . LaRon had some rebound baskets, he had some offensive rebounds and he was our best rim-protector at a very, very big time.LEARNING AND WINNINGHeron did plenty on the offensive side. Pearl noted the game began to shift as the true freshman got deeper into foul trouble. Heron picked up his third early in the second half and Texas Tech took advantage, getting inside the defense to sink 18 points in the paint over the final 20 minutes.The rebounding thing, it really swung in the second half. It energized them, Pearl said. I thought we stopped guarding in the second half. . Hes got to continue to guard and that, I think opened the door a little bit to Texas Techs run.UP NEXTBoth teams continue in the Cancun Challenge tomorrow.

CHICAGO -- Chris Archer prides himself on his durability. Wholesale NHL Jerseys Authentic . Thats why he didnt back out of his last start of the season, despite the prospect of becoming the majors first 20-game loser since 2003.The result was a confidence-boosting performance that got him to his goal of 200 innings.Archer overcame a shaky seventh inning to avoid the dubious 20-loss milestone and lead the Tampa Bay Rays past the Chicago White Sox, 5-3 on Thursday night.Archer (9-19) allowed three runs and six hits in 6 2/3 innings to help the Rays snap a six-game skid and leave Detroits Mike Maroth as the only pitcher to lose 20 games this century.More than anything else, Im trying to make every start and Im trying to pitch 200 innings. Thats my No. 1 priority, Archer said. The first half of the season was up and down, so to accomplish that feat was really nice for me, personally.Mikie Mahtook hit a solo homer in the fourth off Jose Quintana (13-12) and doubled and scored in a three-run seventh off Chicagos shaky bullpen.Quintana allowed two runs and five hits over six innings for the White Sox, whose five-game winning streak ended despite Carlos Sanchezs two-out, two-run homer in the seventh.Chicago clinched its fourth consecutive losing season under manager Robin Ventura, whose future with the team is uncertain. And Quintana has been mentioned as a candidate to be traded if the White Sox decide to rebuild.I dont have control about that, Quintana said. I want to be here for a long time.Archer got the first two outs of the seventh, but a walk, Sanchezs homer and Leury Garcias double ended his night. With rain starting to fall, Brad Boxberger got Adam Eaton to ground out with the tying run on.Erasmo Ramirez worked the eighth amid a steady rain before the umpires called for the tarp. After a 35-minute delay, Alex Colome got the final three outs for his 36th save.Eatons groundout to lead off the sixth put Archer over 200 innings for the second consecutive season. But its been nothing like 2015, when Archer was an All-Star and fifth in the Cy Young Award voting.While Archer has pitched better in the second half, hes gotten little support. Tampa Bay scored two or fewer runs in 15 of his 19 losses, leaving him one loss shy of being the second pitcher in 36 years to lose 20.Honestly, I never let those types of things creep into my mind. Its pointless to think about negatives, Archer said. Im just glad I dont have to answer the question.Archers five strikeouts gave him 233, second in the AL behind Detroits Justin Verlander. He finished with eight consecutive quality starts and a 4.02 ERA.Alexei Ramirezs RBI single against his former team in the second ended Tampa Bays 41-inning streak of not holding a lead.Ramirez also singled and scored in the seventh as the Rays got to relievers Juan Minaya and Dan Jennings to build a 5-1 lead and hold on for their 66th win.I learned a lot about myself and I think thats the biggest thing, Archer said. You take this season and you grow from it. I think all of us starters are going to be poised for much more success next year.TRAINERS ROOMRays: In his second game back from a bruised hand, CF Kevin Kiermaier went 3 for 5 and made a running catch of Sanchezs drive with a runner on to end the game.White Sox: 2B Tyler Saladino (back) wont play again this season. Weve got to figure out a way to get him right before he heads home, Ventura said.20-LOSS CLUBMaroth went 9-21 for the 2003 Tigers, who finished 43-119. Before that, Oaklands Brian Kingman in 1980 was the last to lose 20.SUNDAY SALEVentura had hinted that ace Chris Sales season was over after Tuesdays victory. That changed when the left-hander asked to start Sundays season finale against Minnesota.I think thats a good testament to finishing out the year and doing it right, Ventura said.UP NEXTRays: Three games at NL West champion Texas to close the season. RHP Matt Andriese (8-7, 4.34 ERA) faces Rangers RHP Yu Darvish (6-5, 3.53) on Friday night.White Sox: LHP Carlos Rodon (8-10, 4.08) starts Friday night against last-place Minnesota and RHP Tyler Duffey (9-11, 6.18).

Tsonga, who had won only two of 15 previous meetings with Murray, was broken in his opening service game and made far too many errors to trouble the world No. 2.The Frenchman was staring at a heavy defeat at 1-3 and 0-40 down in the second set but played some fine points to hold serve.That proved the catalyst for a revival from Tsonga, who recovered the break and forced a tie-break.But it was Murray who prevailed, the 29-year-old clinching victory with his fifth ace on his second match point.

Leighton Baines second-half goal secured a 2-1 win over Bournemouth at Goodison Park, his teams first on their own ground in the Premier League since February and only their fifth of the entire league campaign.There were protests before, during and after the game, with a plane flying over the ground trailing a banner which read time to go, Roberto. Supporters flew a banner from a plane protesting against manager Martinez Martinez was aware of the supporters discontent but vowed to continue with his drive to put things right despite ongoing uncertainty over his future at the club. Martinez speaking nonsense Sunday Supplement: Roberto Martinez overly positive on Evertons disastrous season We are all hurting together and we are all very much aware that our players are giving everything theyve got to win games for our football club, he told Sky Sports News HQ.I understand their frustration and I share their frustration and that pain and we do that with the players. Tom Cleverley (second right) of Everton celebrates scoring his teams first goal Weve been through very painful experiences but that will not stop us in our determination and our drive to put things right and make sure we are all pushing in the same direction.Asked if he had seen the plane, Martinez said: No. I would never lose the concentration of what was happening on the pitch.At that point it was an important moment of the game and its all about winning games.

The freshman from Vaughan, Ont. Match factsAugust 6-11, BulawayoStart time 0930 local (0730 GMT)Big PictureA week ago, Zimbabwe were wondering how to stay alive in the first Test against New Zealand. Now, they will be thinking about saving the two-match series and denying New Zealand a chance to claim a cup from the first leg of their self-termed African safari.Victory for Zimbabwe and a share of the spoils seems improbable unless they are able to correct perennial problems that creep into their approach, almost all of which stem from a lack of game time. Their struggle to build partnerships and bat for long periods of time will be crippled further by the absence of Hamilton Masakadza, who will miss the Test with a back injury. Their attacks battle to sustain pressure over extended periods also result in them falling behind early on. They have showed the ability to fight back, but that will probably not be enough against a more complete New Zealand unit.For New Zealand, a second victory and a clean sweep would be the perfect start in their search for more consistency after they lost ground to Australia. It will also give Kane Williamson a solid foundation on which to build his captaincy and sound a warning to South Africa that they could prove a challenge. Coach Mike Hesson could not find too many work-ons after the first Test but Trent Boults pace - which averaged in the late 120s - and the spinners returns will be areas to zone in on.The other area of interest will be the venue itself. Queens Sports Club will host back-to-back fixtures in a test of the ground staffs ability to turn around quickly. The outfield, which was sluggish for the first Test, would have been trimmed and may be a little quicker while the pitch itself is expected to be slow, low and flat. With school holidays and a long weekend, crowd numbers could be higher, especially as Bulawayo does not know when it will see Test cricket again.Form guideZimbabwe LLLLL (last five matches, most recent first)New Zealand WLLWWIn the spotlightAfter crashing to 36 for 4 and 17 for 4 in the first Test Zimbabwes top order will want to give their team a better start. Their ability to cope with a swinging new ball and a hostile short ball will be under particular scrutiny after Tim Southee and Neil Wagner used those tactics to run through them. In the absence of Masakadza, the responsibility will fall on Tino Mawoyo and Chamu Chibhabha.Apart from Trent Boult bowling below pace, the only aspect of New Zealands game that they may want to work on from the first Test is their spinners. While Mitchell Santner was economical, Ish Sodhi was expensive and with long spells likely to be needed on a flat ttrack, he will need to tighten up and try to stifle Zimbabwes batsmen a little more. CHeap MLB Jerseys For Sale. Team newsThe biggest blow to Zimbabwe is Hamilton Masakadzas injury. Opener Tino Mawoyo has recovered from a hand injury to take his place at the top of the order alongside Chamu Chibhabha. Peter Moor is in line for a Test debut in place of Regis Chakabva who battled tonsillitis during the first Test. Although Chris Mpofu looks fit and firing, Donald Tiripano and Mike Chinouya are likely to keep their places with John Nyumbu coming in as a second specialist spinner.Zimbabwe: (probable) 1 Tino Mawoyo, 2 Chamu Chibhabha, 3 Sikandar Raza, 4 Craig Ervine, 5 Prince Masvaure, 6 Sean Williams, 7 Peter Moore (wk), 8 Graeme Cremer, (capt) 9 Donald Tiripano, 10 John Nyumbu, 11 Mike ChinouyaNew Zealand confirmed the same XI for the second Test which means no experiments to play Jeet Raval, Doug Bracewell or Matt Henry before they head to South Africa.New Zealand: 1 Martin Guptill, 2 Tom Latham, 3 Kane Williamson (capt), 4 Henry Nicholls, 5 Ross Taylor, 6 BJ Watling (wk), 7 Mitchell Santner, 8 Tim Southee, 9 Ish Sodhi, 10 Trent Boult, 11 Neil WagnerPitch and conditionsWhile Neil Wagner extracted a surprising amount of bounce from the surface for the first match, this one is expected to offer nothing of the sort. The teams are likely to face a hard, flat strip, which will keep run-scoring slow and make wicket-taking difficult. The fielders will not be able to enjoy any respite from the weather either. Temperatures will remain in the mid-to-high 20s and the skies will be cloudless.Stats and triviaKane Williamson and Tim Southee will be playing their 50th Tests individuallyFive years ago this week, Zimbabwe returned to Test cricket after a six-year self-imposed exile and won their comeback Test against Bangladesh. Craig Ervine and Tino Mawoyo are the only players who took part in that match who may be involved in this oneQuotesWe spent a day at Heath Steaks farm. We managed to get out of the hotel which is good. It was awesome to get out and see a bit of Zimbabwe. We saw a pretty cool sunset and got some relaxing time before a pretty big five days ahead.BJ Watling spills the beans on how the team utilised their free time.The good thing is that we have had one game already. The guys have had a good look at how they got out. The guys have done some work. Theres a little bit more grit needed, a little bit more application and time to suss out conditions.Tino Mawoyo is clear about the situation his team is in.
