David Ortiz Thinks Derek Jeter May Be Unhappy With The Yankees

Jeter retired after the 2014 season and now owns the Miami Marlins. The Yankees retired his No. 2 jersey number in May. He remains the Yankees all-time hits leader with his career 3,465 that put him at No. 6 on the all-time list.

Per Pelissero, the Bengals turned in paperwork by the NFL’s trade deadline Tuesday, but the Browns did not. The Browns argued it was close and there should be a grace period, Pelissero added, Alex Killorn Jersey but paperwork must be filed to the league office by the 4 p.m. ET deadline, which kept McCarron in a Bengals uniform.

NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reports the Bengals would have received a second- and third-round pick from the Browns in the 2018 NFL Draft.

Woodhead was injured on Baltimore锟斤拷s first possession of the season, a 20-0 win at the Bengals, and was placed on injured reserve. Players placed on IR are required to sit out at least eight games, so Woodhead is not be eligible to go for the the Ravens in their Week 9 game at the Titans on Sunday. Baltimore has a bye in Week 10.

Elite Youth Kurt Warner Jersey Woodhead, 32, is in the first year of a three-year, $8.8 million deal he signed with the Ravens this past spring.

His return raises questions regarding the Ravens running back situation 锟紺 for Baltimore锟斤拷s front office and coaching staff, as well as fantasy football owners. Alex Collins and Buck Allen have been carrying most of the load in the backfield, while Terrance West has missed the three most recent games with a calf injury. Bobby Rainey Jr. is also on the roster.

The Redskins faced the Eagles Monday in their second “Monday Night Football” game of the season. The first came on Oct. 2 against the Chiefs, just three days after quarterback Kirk Cousins and wife Julie welcomed their first child with the birth of their son, Cooper.

Cousins missed one day of practice for the birth, but he wasn’t going to miss more than that. In fact, Cousins attended a quarterback meeting with the help of his backup Colt McCoy while his wife was giving birth.

An investigation by the Broward County (Florida) State Attorney’s Office determined there was “no reasonable likelihood” of a conviction for the incident that involved Landry and Estrella Cerqueira, who is the mother of the couple’s daughter.

“The victim maintains that the defendant did not intent to touch her [or] strike her, but accidentally did so,” assistant state attorney Stefanie Newman said in a memorandum.

It was hard to pinpoint anything notable in terms of fantasy when the Dolphins lost 40-0 to the Ravens on Thursday night. However, backup receiver Leonte Carroo had a career-high six receptions for 48 yards. This could open the opportunity for Carroo to get more playing time in the second half of the season, especially if DeVante Parker (ankle) remains sidelined. — James Walker

No. Butler’s skill set would likely be a better matchup against Travis Benjamin, whose run-after-the-catch ability has New England’s attention. The Patriots don’t always match up their corners, but if Stephon Gilmore returns to action, he would seem like the more likely option to check Allen, whether it’s in the slot or on the outside. — Mike Reiss

Bush entered the NFL after being drafted by the Saints in 2006 as the No. 2 overall pick. He has played in a total of 134 games and gained 9,088 yards from scrimmage during his career. In his time playing for the Saints, Dolphins, Lions, 49ers, and Bills he has scored 58 career touchdowns.

I want to play this year. I still feel great, Bush said. I still feel like I have enough left in the tank to play at a high level, but it’s also going to come down to if there’s a need for me on certain teams. And then also, if there is a need, it’s going to have to be a good fit as well.

Sendejo was penalized Sunday for a hit on Ravens receiver Mike Authentic Matt Benning Jersey Wallace in the first quarter of Minneota’s 24-16 win. The hit occurred on Baltimore’s fifth play from scrimmage when Sendejo hit Wallace high, causing Wallace’s helmet to fly off. Wallace was immediately put into concussion protocol after the hit.

NFL vice president of football operations Jon Runyan said in a statement released Monday that Sendejo’s hit, which was flagged for unnecessary roughness was flagrant and warranted a suspension.

The kicking incident came after Nix blocked Burfict into a pile of players and appeared to push him off the pile. Burfict, who has a history of dirty plays, then kicked at Nix with both feet pointed in his direction. There was an official standing nearby, but no flag was thrown.

We did a lot of dumb things, but fortunately our defense did a lot of good things, Payton said.

You must dig deep in Saints history to find that kind of analysis tumbling from Payton’s mouth.

Elite Kids Jean Beliveau Jersey It’s a rejuvenation led by defensive coordinator Dennis Allen and terrorizing defensive end Cam Jordan and rookie cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie Authentic Jersey Marshon Lattimore. It’s a fresh mindset, a new attitude. It has the Saints chirping about a new defensive swagger.

Payton said his question entering this season was not if the Saints defense would be better but how?

Russell had more touchdowns (13) than interceptions (9) but completed just 53.8 percent of his passes and fumbled nine times. His Total QBR for the year was a league-worst 29.2.

The team’s identity for the past several years has been the strength of its defense. The Texans have been able to win an admittedly weak AFC South and land in the playoffs with a 9-7 record the past two seasons with quarterback play that was often laughably poor. The defense was so good that it didn’t matter.

Elite Kids Corey Moore Jersey That’s not the case this year. Deshaun Watson at quarterback has transformed the offense and made it one of the most fun to watch in the league. But last season’s top defense is middle-of-the-pack in 2017, ranked No. 15 in total defense.

It’s a tight race in the AFC South right now. The Texans are sitting a full game behind the Jaguars and have the same record as the Titans and Colts. The Texans were already without linebacker Brian Cushing, who is serving a 10-game suspension for violating the league’s policy on performance-enhancing drugs. Losing Watt and Mercilus doesn’t help.

the Redskins worked out corner Nolan Carroll, cut by Dallas earlier this month.

On Tuesday, there were reports that the NFL will discuss the possibility of adding a rule that requires players to stand during the national anthem. Trump praised the news early Wednesday morning, but then responded by saying its goal is to do the hard work of trying to move from protest to progress.

While Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said any player who disrespects the flag will not play for his team, not all owners have agreed with that stance. San Francisco 49ers owner Jed York has supported his players’ right to protest. The comments by Jones didn’t seem to go over well with a few of the Cowboys players, and he had a meeting with the team Wednesday.

On Monday, the Redskins worked out corner Nolan Carroll, cut by Dallas earlier this month. But a source said the Redskins aren’t yet ready to add anyone until they know more about Breeland’s status. Two years ago, Breeland was expected to miss four to six weeks with an MCL injury, but he returned in three weeks.

Breeland’s always been a fast healer, Gruden said. He’s like Gumby.
Elite Womens Clinton McDonald Jersey
Also, the team might hold off on signing another defensive back in case they need to make a roster move at kicker. Dustin Hopkins has a right hip rotator muscle strain and might not kick vs. the Eagles. The Redskins will work out kickers Tuesday, just in case. The one bit of positive injury news for Washington: Running back Robert Kelley, who did not play Sunday because of a sprained ankle, is expected to practice this week.

Aaron Rodgers breaks collarbone, could miss rest of the season

Aaron Rodgers left the Packers’ game against the Vikings on Sunday after taking a big hit from Anthony Barr. The Packers later announced that he broke his collarbone, and could miss the rest of the season.

The Panthers have had their own share of injuries to overcome, beginning earlier in the year, but are starting to find a rhythm with a new supporting cast. As Cam Newton gets further removed from his shoulder injury, he’s starting to look more like his 2015 self. He’s still without TE Greg Olsen, but has seemed to find a productive Plan B with Ed Dickson — who saw the majority of targets in Week 5 and had himself a career day.

Thompson’s family members, who live in Florida, haven’t been able to watch him play much in person. Thompson leads the Redskins in receiving yards (340) and rushing yards (175). But despite warning his family to go see him play the following week at home against the Cowboys instead, Thompson can’t wait for Monday night.

His big-time effort even earned him a nickname from veteran coach Andy Reid: “butt kicker dot com.”

Luckily for the Chiefs, they are still the top team in each power rankings. Unfortunately for the Packers, however, they took a huge fall. Yahoo Sports’ power rankings has Green Bay at No. 16. On the other hand, the Philadelphia Eagles, Carolina Panthers, and Los Angeles Rams are in the top 10.

The Eagles, Panthers, and Rams are in the top 10 on ESPN’s power rankings, and the Steelers moved to the top five after beating Kansas City. Philadelphia is also the No. 2 team on NFL.com’s power rankings list, but the Rams are behind the Eagles at No. 3. However, the Atlanta Falcons slipped to No. 12.

Rating all 32 backup QB plans: Decent to bleak

Green Bay Packers backup quarterback Brett Hundley was thrust into the spotlight when Aaron Rodgers — who could miss the rest of the season — went down with a broken collarbone on Sunday. Hundley will likely start Green Bay’s remaining 10 games.

Elliott attended the appeal hearing in New York. However, Henderson will not make the accuser attend or testify, according to Pro Football Talk. He also refused a request from Elliott’s team to make notes from the accuser’s interviews with the NFL available during the hearing.

NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport said that followed the NFL’s typical process and that accusers are normally not present during appeals. Rapoport also reported that forensic evidence from the investigation will be permitted Tuesday.

Kareem Hunt was limited to 21 yards on nine carries against Pittsburgh on Sunday. It was the first time in his career that he was held below 81 rushing yards in a game. Of course, Hunt’s poor rushing day didn’t stop him from racking up a ton of fantasy points.

Elliott filed a report against his accuser to the Frisco (Texas) Police over an incident from two days prior. In the report, Elliott claimed she called him more than 50 times on Sept. 3 and that he told her she wasn’t supposed to contact him. He said she left a voicemail, which police recommended he keep.

Elliott also said she had hacked his email in July to get in touch with women Elliott had been involved with. Elliott said she had been calling the other women to say untruthful things that can hurt his image, per the police report.

There are a lot of things that go into the play that make it an accident you don’t want to see.

Mitchell addressed the play with coach Mike Tomlin and general manager Kevin Colbert to make sure they understood his view of it. Mitchell added he’s well aware of the NFL rule prohibiting defenders targeting the knees or lower legs of a quarterback.

“If you watch the tape, I’m even trying to turn my body as I’m falling,” Mitchell said. “Alex is back pedaling into me, I wasn’t even going in the direction of Alex. He’s actually throwing it and fading away. There are a lot of things that go into the play that make it an accident you don’t want to see.”

Still, Sherman said, that shouldn’t prevent them — or any other NFL player — from being able to voice opinions about social issues.

They went into the bye with a reeling offense, but their surprising start has been anchored by a defense playing better on every level under Sean McDermott. Tyrod Taylor and LeSean McCoy need to put the team on their backs.

Matt Ryan and Julio Jones don’t seem to be right without Patrick Sharp Womens Jersey Kyle Shanahan. They haven’t found nearly the Authentic Maury Wills Jersey explosive offense of last season, and it’s not setting up well unless they fire it up before NFC South play.

“They’ve created a platform where Hall of Famers can go back to their hometown or their university and thank them for what they did for that player,” Ham said. “I think it’s a great thing what they’re doing, let me do that at Penn State and giving them a plaque. You’re 18-year old and looking to find direction for life — your college program does that and that’s what happened to me here at Penn State.”

Today at 6 p.m., ESPN will air another version of Sportscenter, the network’s most popular version of its flagship program, without anchor Jemele Hill. Hill is serving a two-week suspension for tweets that the company said violates its social media policy.

They’re two of just six teams left with one or fewer losses.

Both quarterbacks are off to great starts (Carson Wentz, Cam Newton) and coming off of spectacular games. The Eagles’ third-ranked offense by yards faces the Panthers’ third-ranked defense by yards. Unfortunately, Eagles tackle Lane Johnson was in concussion protocol as of Monday, and they have yet to figure out how to handle his absence.

Rodgers broke his left collarbone in 2013 and missed seven games, but this time it’s the right collarbone for the right-handed quarterback.

Brett Hundley entered the game and led a touchdown drive in the second quarter, but the Packers still trailed as the game entered the fourth quarter.

Where do the Packers go from here? Here are three takeaways from Rodgers’ injury:
Authentic Kids Matt Breida Jersey
Rodgers not Green Bay’s only problem The Packers continue to be decimated by injuries. Rodgers wasn’t the only starter lost Sunday. Green Bay also lost starting right tackle Bryan Bulaga, who had just returned from an ankle injury, to a concussion. Cornerback Quinten Rollins left Sunday’s game with an ankle injury, and guard Lane Taylor left and did return with knee and ankle injuries. Left tackle David Bakhtiari aggravated his hamstring injury in the second half of Sunday’s game.

Rodgers sustained the injury in the first quarter of the 23-10 defeat on Sunday as he was hit by Vikings linebacker Anthony Barr on a pass intended for Martellus Bennett.

This season, the fourth-year receiver has only 15 catches for 204 yards, with one touchdown. He’s been targeted 31 times. Compare that to his performance in 2015, when he had 92 targets in 11 games. Bryant missed the entire 2016 campaign serving a one-year suspension because of multiple violations of the substance abuse policy.

Since rejoining the Steelers this summer, Bryant, 25, has found himself a minor player in the offense. He had only three targets in the Steelers’ win against the Chiefs Sunday, finishing with two catches for 27 yards.

I kept waiting for him to waver

The league is a little down on the Drakes. Losing Patrick Patterson, P.J. Tucker and DeMarre Carroll leaves a void on the wing, and vaporizes some of Dwane Casey’s nastiest small-ball lineups. Norman Powell and C.J. Miles — a snug fit, always underappreciated — could fill some of it by sliding up to power forward, but they can’t sop up all those minutes. Tucker was Toronto’s only legit wing stopper, and invigorated a blah defense after the trade deadline.

Even Tricia was amazed at his positive calm. “I kept waiting for him to waver,” she says, “but he never did. Being down or negative is not who he is as a person. It’s one of the things I admire most about him.”

That, too, is the Dodger Way. Back in 1954, Campanis wrote, “It is a Dodger policy not to criticize a player on the day that a game is lost.” (And besides, the Dodgers were still comfortably in front despite the bad stretch and headed toward 100 victories.)

So Roberts smiled as the team tried a variety of slump-busters: Darvish threw salt in the dugout, and the clubhouse attendants took the places of the bat boys. As a former member of the Indians, Roberts welcomed the presence of Jobu, the voodoo doll from “Major League,” in the bat rack.

After they finally snapped the 11-game losing streak with a 5-3 victory over the host Giants on Sept. 12, Aurilia texted Roberts: “That’s over. Now start playing like it’s the postseason.” Doc texted back: “Good advice, buddy.”

The Dodgers then went on a four-game winning streak that included taking the first two games of their three-game set in Washington — a possible precursor to an NLCS matchup.rockets_024
