Penguins’ Evgeni Malkin out at least 1 game with upper-body injury
November 24, 2017
Pittsburgh Penguins center Evgeni Malkin will miss at least one game with an upper-body injury.
Week 4 marked the most recent occasion in which Jordy Nelson finished a week at better than 28th in fantasy points among wide receivers. Nelson has failed to eclipse 35 yards and hasn’t scored a single touchdown during his past four outings. Nelson scored 78 fantasy points in five games (seventh most among wide receivers) with Aaron Rodgers and sits at 31 in five games with Hundley (57th). Up next is a very tough matchup against a Steelers defense allowing the fourth-fewest fantasy points to wide receivers this season. Nelson shouldn’t be close to fantasy lineups, though competitive teams might want to keep him rostered in case Rodgers returns in Week 15 or 16.
That is why Seattle wasn’t especially worried about another team scooping up Sherman earlier. It seems improbable now, but I remember the Seahawks being at least as excited about Appalachian State safety Mark LeGree, whom they selected two spots after taking Sherman and who never played in an NFL game. That’s how unpredictable these decisions can be on draft day.
With Matt Forte sidelined for the team’s most recent game, Elijah McGuire racked up eight carries and seven targets on 33 snaps. Bilal Powell handled 10 carries and one target on 31 snaps. The Jets enjoyed their bye in Week 11, but Forte remains questionable to return this week with a knee injury.
If he’s out, we should again anticipate a two-man committee. Powell has been terrific this season, averaging a team-best 4.5 yards per carry, but he has only 19 receptions in nine games. Neither Powell nor McGuire can be trusted as anything more than flex options against Carolina’s tough run defense this week.
NFLPA president Eric Winston has a job again
November 22, 2017
Youth Braxton Miller Jersey The president of the NFL Players’ Association will get to play in 2017.
Tackle Eric Winston re-signed with the Bengals on Wednesday after spending the first nine weeks of the NFL season without a job. Cincinnati had released him days before the season opener in September.
He takes the roster spot of right tackle Jake Fisher, who was placed on the reserve/non-football illness list. Fisher Jakub Kindl Authentic Jersey left Sunday’s game against the Jaguars with what was described only as an illness and taken to the hospital for follow-up tests.
Jones, though, complained to fellow owners about the power vested in the six-member compensation committee that would negotiate the terms of Goodell’s contract with him. Jones, who was not a committee member, said that for Goodell’s next contract, all 32 owners should be kept apprised of all the negotiations’ key developments and be given the opportunity to approve the contract’s final terms.
The hall said Tuesday that all ties for the 25th spot in the semifinals also advance.

Others in their initial year of eligibility who made this cut are Brian Urlacher, Richard Seymour, Steve Hutchinson and Ronde Barber.
Four previously eligible players made the semifinals for the first time: LeRoy Butler, Leslie O’Neal, Simeon Rice and Everson Walls. All others on the 2018 list have reached the semifinals in previous years.
Already chosen as finalists are Bobby Beathard as a contributor, and Robert Brazile and Jerry Kramer as senior candidates.
Teddy Bridgewater Jersey knee will be evaluated on Monday

Paul’s departure didn’t rock them as much as you might think. The Clippers were hungry for change; Paul just initiated it for them. Players insist the culture wasn’t as toxic as the on-court shouting and angry glares made it appear. Griffin and Paul were cordial. A lot of that stuff was overblown, Griffin says. You hear about drama on other teams, and it made us seem normal.
Youth Adam Foote Jersey On a soggy Sunday afternoon, Carson Wentz and the Eagles struggled to get things going for much of the first half, but took a 17-0 lead into halftime after finding more success running a no-huddle offense. The same struggles crept back up in the second half and the Eagles entered a lull offensively, but then came savior Alshon Jeffery.
Columbus prosecutor Robert S. Tobias said in October 2016 that he believed Elliott had been physical with his accuser but that his office didn’t have enough evidence to bring charges.
Since returning from injury in Week 5, Mack has scored twice despite having a 0.7 OTD and no carries or targets inside the opponent’s 10-yard line (his touchdowns came on a 22-yard run and a 29-yard catch and run). Mack won’t be a viable fantasy starter as long as Gore is the lead back.
And the team is optimistic he’ll be physically able to practice soon. Given Sam Bradford’s lingering bone bruise, it’s not hard to see a scenario where Bridgewater gets Dennis Johnson Authentic Jersey his job back before season’s end. Coach Mike Zimmer told me over the summer that if Bradford played well, there’d be no decision to make, otherwise, the door would be open. The door is open.
After trading for the ex-Dolphin, and enduring his holdout, the Jaguars were unconvinced that Albert was in the NFL for anything more than one last paycheck.

Elite Womens Michael Brockers Jersey This is the first in a series from The MMQB about people in and around the NFL who have been affected by cancer.
And even after that win over the Niners (Newton was up and down in that one), Carolina had to be careful with him. One week he threw on Wednesday and Friday and was off Thursday. Another, he was off Wednesday and threw Thursday and Friday. Another still he was off Wednesday and throwing light on Thursday.
Khan is quiet again for the final few minutes, which unfold without any more drama. Dammit, he says Authentic Oscar Lindberg Jersey as the whistle blows. The other guests return to the room, and Khan wanders around, trying to forget the result. He eats a chocolate cupcake and grabs a glass of Champagne. He takes a long sip, and it hits him again. Aw f–k, he mutters.
This was an emotional game for Wilson. Graham is his best friend on the team, and before the game, NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport reported the Seahawks have had discussions with Houston concerning left tackle Duane Brown; Rapoport hinted that Jimmy Graham might be on the trading block for Seattle. Seattle GM John Schneider said Sunday that Graham would not be traded.
Cousins has never averaged more than 1.7 blocks per game. As a rule, NBA big men don’t get better at blocking shots as their careers unfold. They tend to peak in blocks in their first couple of seasons.
Elite Kids Trent Murphy Jersey
Brady served a four-game suspension to start the 2016 season for his role in the Deflategate controversy. The league announced Brady’s suspension on May 11, 2015, and the NFLPA filed an appeal on Brady’s behalf on May 14. The appeal was set for June 23, and Goodell announced that he would uphold the suspension on June 28.
Brady filed a federal lawsuit, and nearly a year later the U.S. Second Circuit Court of Appeals eventually determined Goodell did have the authority to issue the suspension. Brady announced on July 15, 2016 that he would accept the suspension and not take the case to the Supreme Court.
The team trading for a player also needs cap room to execute a trade.

“I’m like, what’s going on? I’m wearing a blazer and trousers and I’m like, ‘What is happening here?’ And all of a sudden we’re running pick and rolls and playing out of post cuts. It was wild,” Redick says. “Not the typical sort of free agency visit, but I guess you use the resources that you have available.”
For example, many thought the Vikings last season needed to trade for an offensive lineman despite them having a little more than $1 million in cap space. In order for the NFL to allow a trade for a player like a Joe Thomas, who would have cost around $4.5 million for the remainder of the season, the Vikings would have had to to create an additional $3.5 million in space.
The Patriots would seem to have bought in to the idea that Tom Brady can play well into his 40s and are left without a backup at quarterback, having traded Jacoby Brissett to the Indianapolis Colts in September for receiver Phillip Dorsett.
The Patriots are on their bye week, during which they will have extra time to find a backup via trade or free agency. They will have until Tuesday’s 4 p.m. ET trade deadline to explore that avenue.
Aside from some competition from Brown, Irving got a chance to shine with the Celtics on Tuesday. When else have you ever seen Irving with the ball in his hands on the right wing with an opportunity to shoot a three and decide the game? These are the kind of scenarios Irving has been dreaming about his whole life, and finally, in Game 1 of the regular season, Irving found himself as the man with a chance to take the big shot.
Ball started his career facing Patrick Beverley Jersey of the LA Clippers
November 13, 2017
Roethlisberger (17 of 31, 317 yards, one TD, one INT) was off for much of the night. He missed wide-open targets all over the field, notably twice in the red zone. Brown (7 yards) was mostly shut down, mostly by Slay, and frustrated to the point of having a TD negated by his own offensive pass interference.
In some previous road games, and in one ugly home game against the Jaguars, Roethlisberger has gotten into trouble by forcing the ball to Brown too much. It happened in Detroit, too, and the result was a deep-ball interception by Lions safety Glover Quin.
Limited Mens Ricky Jean-Francois Jersey
Both general manager John Schneider and head coach Pete Carroll denied reports of Graham being on the block and, in an ironic twist, Richard Sherman, who the Seahawks admitted was available for trade last offseason, praised the organization.
Mens Marcus Gilbert Jersey Pederson pranced all the way to the plate, pointing at the Dodgers’ dugout and rubbing his thumbs and index fingers together to indicate what a money shot it was.
You kind of black out in a situation like that. So I’m going to have to re-watch it to see what I did, Pederson said.
Ballin’: In his first six games, Ball started his career facing Patrick Beverley of the LA Clippers, Eric Bledsoe of the Phoenix Suns, Jrue Holiday of the New Orleans Pelicans, John Wall of the Washington Wizards, Kyle Lowry of the Toronto Raptors and Ricky Rubio of the Utah Jazz.
One thing that Ball was able to do for the most part during that stretch was play solid defense. Womens Kenta Maeda Jersey He wasn’t on the opposing starting point guard a ton on defense — oftentimes, shooting guard Kentavious Caldwell-Pope guarded point guards like Wall — but Ball did hold his own for the most part when he had to guard them, which is saying something.
the Bills have used Jordan Matthews Jersey and Zay Jones as their top wide receivers

Xavier Grimble Jersey
The Bills’ decision to add Benjamin comes less than three months after they traded previous top wideout Sammy Watkins to the Los Angeles Rams. Without Watkins, the Bills have used Jordan Matthews and Zay Jones as their top wide receivers, with Andre Holmes and Deonte Thompson also seeing time.
Beane said he believes Benjamin will add size and Womens William Gay Jersey experience to the Bills’ offense.
I don’t tweet a lot about politics. I do tweet more about social issues, which I consider to be issues of morality. Racism isn’t politics. Racism is an issue of right and wrong. Tweeting about significant issues that impact marginalized people isn’t politics. That’s right and wrong.
Michael Strahan Jersey If I had to guess, I would say I’ve increased my tweets about social issues about 20%. I’ve tried really hard not to let these issues consume my feed, because there are a lot of days where I just want to have fun on Twitter. I want to debate with Power and Insecure fans about what’s happening on the show. I want to make jokes and have silly sports arguments, but unfortunately those days feel like they happen less.
It was a spirited event, the kind of thing teams might employ if they’re in a rut during the season. The Knights have known no ruts in their brief history. They’re a team many expected to be 1-8-0, not the reverse.
That is true, Schmidt said, with a laugh, but winning cures a lot of things, when you’re at home and playing well. You get rolling a bit. You see the good side of guys, not the side when you’re feeling down after a loss. That’s definitely helped our culture because guys see what it takes for us to be successful.
It falls to coach Gerard Gallant to find that unique balance between keeping the gravy train rolling and providing needles for any inflated egos or unrealistic expectations in his dressing room.
The initial thought in selecting Watson was that he wouldn’t need to do too much with J.J. Watt Jersey and Whitney Mercilus Jersey fronting a good defense.
November 9, 2017
My favorite player growing up is LeBron, Ball said. He still plays the same way to the day. He always takes [the blame].
After the Lakers lost 96-81 in Utah on Saturday, Ball put the Lakers’ fourth loss of the season on his shoulders. Ball — who was held to nine points, four assists, two rebounds, two steals and five turnovers — blamed the loss on two dumb plays by me after Utah rookie Donovan Mitchell electrified the home crowd with five straight points that included a one-handed catch-and-dunk putback and a 3-pointer.
Ball felt he should have boxed out Mitchell on the dunk. Ball’s turnover right after that eventually led to Mitchell’s 3-pointer, which turned a six-point game into an 11-point Jazz lead heading into the fourth quarter.
The result was one Super Bowl victory, another appearance, four straight AFC West titles and 50 regular-season wins.
Mens Breno Giacomini Jersey The Broncos are heading toward the midway point of the season at 3-4 and with a quarterback crisis following Trevor Siemian’s meltdown in Monday night’s Cory James Authentic Jersey 29-19 loss at Kansas City.
Fine, thank you, he said at Friday’s postgame press conference. He added that he felt no ill effects from the lumbar injuries that cost him 18 starts over the last two years, and said those ailments were in his rear view mirror. I felt fine. [The ball] just wasn’t coming out as good as I would have liked it to that last inning. I just didn’t have much [energy] left 鈥?Obviously, it was frustrating the way it ended but thankfully I had a big lead.
The Texans also had been a good team, having won two consecutive AFC South titles. Watson instead has had to become playmaker over caretaker by necessity, and he has done it with playground passing while he improves with every game.

Some of those updates were positive, and some were not.
November 8, 2017
Consecutive baskets by Embiid and Simmons enabled Philadelphia to push the lead to five, and the Sixers held on.
“We just learned our lesson (from the earlier game against the Rockets), and did a better job,” Embiid told NBC Sports Philadelphia.
Coach Brett Brown believes, however, there is still room for improvement.
The Eagles generate many chances for goal-line opportunities, but haven’t been effective in that area. It remains to be seen if Ajayi will be involved in that aspect. Regardless, Blount was barely a flex choice most weeks and now he’s further removed from that status, and Smallwood has his own issues remaining healthy, let alone productive.
Some good news for San Francisco: Shanahan said that left tackle Joe Staley, who suffered a fractured orbital bone below his right eye, will likely avoid landing on injured reserve.
“I don’t think we’ll have to IR [him],” Shanahan said. “[We’re] still looking into that but definitely don’t plan on having him until at least after the bye week.”
The 49ers traded for Patriots quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo on Tuesday, sending a 2018 second-round draft pick to New England. The 49ers are expected to release quarterback Brian Hoyer, who is expected to sign with the Patriots to be Tom Brady’s backup.
Now, we all know we were not there to see it, but I do have every point of contention on both sides, and in our system in this country, Zeke would not have any issue here as to his workplace.
NFL won’t suspend Kiko Alonso Jersey, Ndamukong Suh Jersey for incidents vs. Ravens

Miami Dolphins linebacker Kiko Alonso and defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh will not be suspended for incidents involving Baltimore Ravens quarterbacks during Thursday’s 40-0 loss, the NFL said Tuesday.
Alex Stalock Game Jersey A warning before you venture here: I think the reason why this one popped up in Yelp’s data is more because of its brunch offerings, and since the Astros are not going to be playing any more 1 PM games, it makes its place here a bit irrelevant. Plus, for anyone looking for a post-game dinner, keep in mind that it closes at 10 PM, which means the only real option here is a pregame meal. Still, it’s located in the Marriott Marquis Houston, and so anyone who’s traveling and staying in either that hotel or in the surrounding area should keep Chris Tillman Authentic Jersey it in mind. Plus, as mentioned earlier, there’s no shame in starting your proper postseason pregame routine with more than a few mimosas and some eggs.
The Reviews: From 8/12/2017: Overlooks Nats Park, with views of both the river and DC. Perfect place to relax on a fall evening. Comfortable patio and cold beers!; From 10/5/2017: To pay $10 for a Bud Light (and wait 15 minutes to order it) and then have nowhere to sit… c’mon. The redeeming qualities include location and view (it is actually great), but it just seems way too small to handle a crowd for game day.
The 25th pick in 2015, Martin persuaded Memphis to keep him around after a strong performance during the preseason that has continued into the season. The 6-foot-10, 239-pound Martin has started six of seven games, and he is averaging a career-high 7.1 points, 4.6 rebounds and 23.9 minutes.
Martin left LSU after his sophomore season and had played 32 games with the Grizzlies’ G League team the past two seasons.
