"Its embarrassing to be at home and play the way we did," said defenceman Josh Gorges. http://www.cheapclippersjerseyschina.com/ . Coach Tom Thibodeau says the former MVP will probably start travelling with the team in the next few weeks. Rose tore the meniscus in his right knee at Portland in November and was ruled out for the remainder of the season by the Bulls. If there is any solace the Los Angeles Rams can use heading into their Week 2 matchup against a familiar NFC West rival, it is the fact that they beat the Seattle Seahawks twice in 2015.That will need to be Los Angeles head coach Jeff Fishers rallying cry all week after his squad laid an egg on national television this past Monday night. The new Rams hope to have a better showing as they kick off their return to Los Angeles and host the 1-0 Seahawks at 4:05 p.m. ET Sunday at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum. The Seahawks enter this contest having barely escaped with a victory over the Miami Dolphins.Both teams know there is a lot at stake in this early-season matchup. The Rams have already lost a division game to the San Francisco 49ers and cannot afford to be 0-2 in the NFC West to start the season. The Seahawks struggled to a 12-10 win in Week 1 and know the Rams have their number in recent history.Were familiar with them, theyre familiar with us; we respect them, they respect us. I love watching them play -- the Seahawks -- because they play hard, (Seattle head coach) Pete (Carroll) does a great job and fortunately, weve had some success against them, said Fisher about this rivalry.The health of Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson is a major topic leading up to this game. Wilsons ankle was stepped on in the third quarter of the Miami game, limiting his ability to move and escape the pocket. The unique aspect of Wilsons game is the ability to extend drives and plays with his feet and speed. Offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell must be creative and protective of Wilson when installing the game plan for the Rams.Wilson is expected to play. Remember, this is a player who has never missed an important snap in his career. Carroll addressed this to the media.Hes (Wilson) pretty good. Hes not in a boot. Hes walking around and hes practicing on Wednesday. Hes planning on playing and well see how it goes, Carroll said.Wilson is adamant about playing against a team he lost to twice last season.With even a slightly hobbled Wilson, the onus falls on running backs Christine Michael and Thomas Rawls to establish a running attack. Against a solid Miami defensive front, the offensive line struggled to gain momentum and consistency. Michael and Rawls rushed for a combined 98 yards but failed to cross the goal line. That will nott work against the formidable defensive front of the Rams. Jerome Robinson Jersey. Los Angeles defensive coordinator Gregg Williams will build his game plan around stopping the Seahawks rushing attack and forcing the gimpy Wilson out of the pocket. Williams can use middle linebacker Alec Olgetree on run stunts, which will allow Pro Bowl defensive tackle Aaron Donald to be single-blocked by either guard JMarcus Webb or Mark Glowinski. That is a matchup the Rams should win.Donald is one of the best defensive linemen in the NFL. The front five of the Seahawks has struggled to block him in his four games played against them. In those four career games against Seattle, Donald has amassed four sacks and 24 total tackles. That being said, Donald and the Rams defense had zero sacks versus the 49ers.Center Justin Britt was moved to center and a major reason was for matchups opposite Donald. Britt is intelligent, has quick hands and good lateral quickness. The 49ers were able to frustrate Donald, who did not play particularly well and was ejected for putting his hands on an official. The Rams as a team had 10 total penalties for 102 yards. If Donald can keep his composure and play like last season, this could be an exciting matchup to watch.Los Angeles offense was a train wreck on Monday Night Football. Former Rams great Eric Dickerson called it an embarrassment. The play of quarterback Case Keenum had Fisher thinking about benching him, but the head coach allowed him to finish the game.Fisher has acknowledged that Keenum is on a short leash, though, he enters the Sundays game as the starter. No matter who lines up at center for the Rams, the offensive line needs to play much better than the unit did against the 49ers.Running back Todd Gurley was held in check in Week 1 and will be looking to better his numbers from his only game against the Seahawks in 2015. Gurley rushed for 83 yards and scored one touchdown in the December showdown in Seattle.With the lack of a passing attack, the Seahawks defensive game plan will be to stack the tackle box with run defenders and make Keenum beat Seattles defensive backs with passes downfield. Safety Earl Thomas and cornerback Richard Sherman would welcome that challenge. ' ' ' 
SARATOGA SPRINGS, N. Cheap Diamondbacks Jerseys .Y. -- As he walked briskly into the post-race interview area at Saratoga, trainer Bob Baffert said: This is better this year. Why didnt we do that last year?A year after making a similar walk - though with less enthusiasm - following Triple Crown winner American Pharoahs defeat in the Travers, Baffert floated on air after the previously unheralded Arrogate put on a performance for the ages, winning Saturdays Grade 1, $1.25 million Travers Stakes by a whopping 13-1/2 lengths over stablemate American Freedom. Moreover, Arrogates final time of 1:59.36 for 1-1/4 miles was a track record, demolishing the mark of 2:00 set by General Assembly in the 1979 Travers.That was ridiculous, Baffert said.The win capped a sensational hour for Arrogates owner, Juddmonte Farms, which also won the Grade 1, $1 million Sword Dancer Invitational with Flintshire on Saturday. It was also a two-win day for Baffert, who won the Grade 1 Kings Bishop with Drefong.But Arrogate eclipsed all performances on a Breeders Cup-type card at Saratoga, where 13 3-year-olds went into the starting gate for the 147th Travers but only one will be remembered.Arrogate, a son of Unbridleds Song, had never run in a stakes race before Saturday. His three wins coming into this race came against a total of 10 horses. On Aug. 4, he beat two horses in an allowance race, coming from last of three.When Arrogate drew the rail for the Travers, Baffert knew Mike Smith would have to put him into the race from the outset. Smith hustled Arrogate away from the gate but was third under the wire the first time as American Freedom and Laoban had outbroke him.But by the time the field entered the first turn, Arrogate was in front, running an opening quarter of 23.23 seconds. The gray locomotive kept rolling at a brisk clip of 46.84 seconds for a half-mile and 1:10.85 for six furlongs while basically in hand.So smooth, so strong, Smith said. He would look around a lot because hes so immature. Every time he looked too much Id say, Hey, and, man, he would jump to it.Entering the far turn, Arrogate widened his lead and he came to the quarter pole two lengths in front after running a mile in 1:35.52, equaling the second-fastest mile fraction in the history of the race.Smith said he kept busy on Arrogate in the stretch because he was afraid someone was coming, but no one was in shouting distance as Arrogate came to the wire in front of 48,630 spectators.Sent off an 11-1 shot, Arrogate returned $25.40 and keyed a Baffert exacta that returned $134.50.It was Baffert who picked out Arrogate at auction for Juddmonte, which three years ago retained him as their Southern California trainer following the death of Juddmontes previous U.S. trainer Bobby Frankel several years earlier. Arrogate brought $560,000 as a yearling.Rafael Bejarano had ridden Arrogate in his three previous victories, but he also had ridden American Freedom to a victory in the Iowa Derby and a runner-up finish in the Haskell Invitational. Bejarano said owner Gary West wanted him to ride American Freedom.I wanted to ride [Arrogate], but there was nothing I could do because the owner wanted me to ride that other horse, said Bejarano, adding that Arrogate was much better than the other horses and he loved the distance.American Freedom finished a half-length in front of third-place finisher Gun Runner, who finished 3-3/4 lengths ahead of Gift Box in fourth. He was followed, in order, by Governor Malibu, Connect, Creator, My Man Sam, Destin, Forever dOro, 5-2 favorite Exaggerator, Laoban, and Anaximandros.Jockey Kent Desormeaux was on Exaggerator, who he said was empty before the running started.In addition to trying to boost his credentials for the 3-year-old championship, Exaggerator was trying to disprove the notion he is simply a wet-track specialist. He has won three Grade 1s in the slop this year. His last effort on a fast track was an 11th-place finish in the Belmont Stakes.Im not going to scratch my head, Im going to accept it as racing and Ill figure out what happened in the ensuing days, said Keith Desormeaux, trainer of Exaggerator. I can assure you theres nothing physically wrong with him. It kind of mimicked his Belmont race. Its hard for me to accept that its all about the track.Trainer Steve Asmussen was glad to see Gun Runner bounce back from his fifth-place finish in the Haskell with a respectable third-place showing in the Travers.On a dry track we saw Gun Runner is of very high quality, he said. It is very comforting to be able to throw out the Haskell.Creator, the Belmont Stakes winner, also trained by Asmussen, finished seventh. Asmussen deduced that Creator had the same troubles with the turns at Saratoga as he did at Fair Grounds this winter.Saratogas probably not for him, Asmussen said.They used to say that about Baffert. They werent saying it Saturday. Wholesale Diamondbacks Jerseys .ca NHL Power Rankings for the second straight week, ahead of the Pittsburgh Penguins and Colorado Avalanche.

Athens, Ga. -- The University of Georgia football program has been recognized by the NCAA as one of four winners of its Student-Athlete Sportsmanship Award for 2015-16.The Bulldogs were awarded the honor because of their first-response care and subsequent support for injured Southern University football player Devon Gales and his family.

NORTHBROOK, Ill. Chad Ruhwedel Jersey . -- A 52-year-old original Chicago Blackhawks Stanley Cup championship banner has sold at an auction for $37,500. The Southtown Star reports the 12-foot-long banner fetched more than expected during Tuesday nights five-minute-long auction at Leslie Hindman Auctioneers of Chicago. The banner from 1961 once hung from the rafters at the old Chicago Stadium, before the owner of a suburban Chicago sports bar bought it an auction in 1994 for $15,000. Its been in hanging in the bar ever since. The Blackhawks won the Stanley Cup in 1961, beating the Detroit Red Wings 5-1. The team was led by Bobby Hull and Stan Mikita. Today a replica of the banner hangs in the United Center. The auction house says the 12-foot-long banner is in good shape, with only a few stains. Carl Hagelin Jersey .

The Clippers were angry about blowing a big lead; the Kings didnt like being in that kind of hole and nearly digging themselves out only to lose. OAKLAND, Calif. -- The Oakland Raiders keep finding new ways to win late in games, while the San Diego Chargers somehow manage to find even more painful ways to lose.Derek Carr threw a go-ahead 21-yard touchdown pass to Michael Crabtree on a fourth-and-2 gamble and the Raiders survived when the Chargers botched a potential tying kick late in a 34-31 win Sunday.Sometimes you just have to find ways to win and get it done at the end, Carr said. It would be nice if we didnt have to do all the stress and drama at the end. That would be nice.After using a late 2-point conversion to win the opener, stopping a late Tennessee drive in a Week 3 win and using a late score and defensive stop to beat Baltimore last week, the Raiders (4-1) survived against the Chargers (1-4) to post their first three-game winning streak in five years.Philip Rivers threw his fourth TD pass of the game to cut a 10-point lead to three midway through the fourth and then drove San Diego down the field late. But after Melvin Gordon was held to 1 yard on third-and-2, coach Mike McCoy opted for a 36-yard field goal.Mike Windts snap was on target, but rookie Drew Kaser couldnt get down the hold and the Chargers never got a chance at the tie.You cant make this stuff up, Rivers said. You think, `Is there any other way we can find a way to do this?The Chargers had already lost three games they led at the two-minute warning, blowing a 21-point lead to Kansas City and a 13-point fourth-quarter advantage last week versus New Orleans.Then came the latest loss that included four turnovers and the botched kick, leading to a 10th straight division loss.Just when you think youve seen it all, something like that happens, McCoy said.COOPER SCORES: Raiders receiver Amari Cooper hadnt scored a touchdown in four games before breaking through against the Chargers. He scored on a 64-yard pass from Carr in the third quarter and added a 2-point conversion after Crabtrees TD. Cooper also nearly had three more scores, but couldnt get both feet down inbounds on two throws into the end zone and was unable to re-establissh himself after being interfered with on a third play. Michel Briere Jersey. First one is always the hardest, no matter what it is, Carr said. Im just happy for him because he works his tail off.BOSAS DEBUT: Chargers defensive end Joey Bosa made an impressive debut after missing training camp during a nasty contract dispute and sitting out the first four games with a hamstring injury. He came in on the second drive and had a sack and a tackle for loss. He added a second sack in the fourth quarter.It felt pretty natural, Bosa said. Its nice to get the butterflies out because I was pretty nervous coming into this game.BIG PLAY ROOKIE: First-round pick Karl Joseph, who started the season on the bench in Oakland, has made a big impact since becoming a starter in Week 3. He intercepted a pass from Rivers late in the first half to set up a field goal and then recovered a fumble by Gordon to set up Crabtrees TD.LEAKY D: Despite the win, the Raiders allowed more than 400 yards for the fourth time in five games. Big plays were the problem in this game as the Chargers had three passes go for at least 50 yards.Were not even close to the standard we need to be at, linebacker Bruce Irvin said. Whatd we give up today, 400 yards or something? Thats bad. Happy about the win, but Im not in a good mood about how we performed.GIVE IT AWAY: After committing turnovers on the final three drives in last weeks loss to New Orleans , the Chargers picked up where they left off. Antonio Gates was stripped on San Diegos first drive and lost a fumble with the Chargers in position to score. Rivers then was intercepted by Sean Smith on a deep pass on the Chargers next play from scrimmage. Rivers threw another interception late in the half, giving San Diego six turnovers in eight possessions. San Diego committed a fourth turnover late in the third quarter when Gordon fumbled, setting up Oaklands go-ahead score.---AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and www.twitter.com/AP-NFL ' ' ' 
GENEVA -- FIFA has asked authorities in 2018 World Cup host Russia for "clarification and more details" about a new anti-gay law, joining the International Olympic Committee in seeking answers from Moscow. Womens Ducks Jerseys . Legislation prohibiting "propaganda of nontraditional sexual relations among minors" has provoked an international furor since President Vladimir Putin signed it off in June and sparked growing concern at the IOC ahead of the Sochi Winter Games next February. The two most influential organizations in world sports are both now asking Russia how the law would be enforced during their marquee events. "FIFA has asked the Russian authorities for clarification and more details on this new law," footballs governing body said in a statement Tuesday. "Russia has committed to provide all visitors and fans with a warm welcome and ensure their safety" during the monthlong tournament, FIFA said, adding that "FIFA trusts that the 2018 FIFA World Cup hosts will deliver on this promise." FIFA has a direct link to the Russian government, as Sports Minister Vitaly Mutko serves under FIFA President Sepp Blatter on the football bodys 27-member executive board. Mutko has said that Olympic athletes would have to respect the countrys laws during the Feb. 7-23 Winter Games, and that international reaction needed to "calm down." FIFA noted that its statutes "foresee zero tolerance against discrimination." Article 3 states: "Discrimination of any kind against a country, private person or group of people on account of ethnic origin, gender, language, religion, politics or any other reason is strictly prohibited and punishable by suspension or expulsion." Russia was awarded World Cup hosting rights in December 2010, when FIFAs board chose it ahead of England and joint bids from Spain-Portugal and the Netherlands-Belgium. That same day in Zurich, FIFA awarded hosting of the 2022 World Cup to Qatar, where homosexual acts are illegal. Blatter drew criticism soon after the World Cup votes when he suggested that gay football fans could "refrain from any sexual activities" while attending the World Cup in the Gulf nation. In May, after FIFA member countries approved tougher sanctions for discrimination, Blatter was asked by reporters what gay fans and players could expect in Qatar, and said that he could not offer "a definite answer" at this stage. The potential effect on the Sochi Olympics of Russias attitude toward gay rights is playing out during campaigning for the six-man race to be elected IOC president on Sept. 10. On Monday, candidate C. K. Wu of Taiwan said that "we are not joking" with Russia, and suggested that future bidders should be judged more strictly on their human rights record and follow the Olympic charter. "This should become a basic qualification if you want to apply to host the games," Wu said. Jean-Sebastien Giguere Jersey .

The flare was removed from the playing surface by stewards.Two Salford fans were then ejected from the playing surface and pitch-side at the end of the game for pitch encroachment.Following this an incident occurred in the away stand.

Richard Cockerill has admitted a run-in with Italian military police in a branch of McDonalds near Treviso has made Leicester Tigers look a bit silly. Sviatoslav Mykhailiuk Jersey .Rugby director Cockerill has confirmed a number of Leicester players have been disciplined internally after an incident following the clubs 33-10 pre-season victory over Treviso on Friday, August 19.Italian carabinieri, military police, were called by McDonalds staff after a player was alleged to have taken food without paying having become impatient in a queue in the early hours of Saturday, August 20.Leicester boss Cockerill insists the matter was quickly dealt with, as the players involved were disciplined, and now expects the Tigers to start the new Aviva Premiership season without any further fallout.The players involved have been dealt with, it is disappointing for obvious reasons, said Cockerill, refusing to name any players involved. I would much prefer it not to happen. As the reports say, there was a player who took a cookie from a jar and that was paid for by the time the police arrived.It all died down. It was something of nothing but the players involved have been dealt with by myself and thats the end of the matter. It is private. It was dealt with swiftly and it was not particularly serious otherwise it would have been dealt with by the police.Leicester will open their Premiership campaign at Gloucester on Friday night, with Manu Tuilagi fully available for selection.Cockerill has reminded his players of their responsibilities as professionals in the social media age, but admitted he can sympathise with the constant scrutiny that comes with ever advancing technology.It is a danger for everybody, and it is what it is, said Cockerill. You are a Leicester Tiger 24/7 and you are judged upon how you behave however good or bad that is.Our players do a lot of good things that dont get reported. It is a lesson learnt for some young people about how those things can escalate. It made us all look a bit silly.My own personal view is that just because a young player is very good at something - and that can be anything - they are still young people growing up and they will still do things that they shouldnt do, like all of us sat around this table and all of your readers too.Everybody does things that they shouldnt do. Sometimes they have to experience those situations before they go actually, I was told that would happen, it has happened, maybe I should have listened to the old prat who told us it would.I have been there myself so I can understand how that happens, not withstanding that we dont accept or condone that type of behaviour. Those players have been dealt with and we move on. I would much rather it have not happened but our players do lots of good things as well. Isaac Bonga Jersey .875,000, avoiding arbitration.

Woodson said during a radio interview Thursday that the Knicks Carmelo Anthony doesnt get the same calls as other superstars. http://www.cheaplakersjerseyschina.com/ .Y. - New York City has been selected to host the NBA All-Star weekend in 2015, with the game played at Madison Square Garden and the slam dunk contest and other skills events held at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn. TAMPA, Fla. -- Frank Martins uneasiness about how No. 16 South Carolina might respond to its first loss of the season was unfounded.PJ Dozier and Duane Notice assured that, stepping up in the absence of leading scorer Sindarius Thornwell to help the Gamecocks (9-1) shrug off cold shooting and pull away to a 77-66 victory over South Florida on Saturday.Dozier scored 11 of his 23 points in the closing minutes and Notice gave South Carolina a spark by contributing 14 of his 15 points after halftime to help the Gamecocks bounce back from last Mondays 67-64 loss to Seton Hall.It was my concern for this basketball team coming into this game, coming off our first loss, being so young, that some guys wouldnt handle it (well). Losing is an epidemic, and losing is not good. And young people dont know how to handle losing, Martin said.It was our first experience as a team to go through it. I think we kind of came out and played the first half like somebody took our dog. We didnt have our enthusiasm, the fight that weve played with every single day out, Martin added. But Im equally as pleased, I thought we played well in the second half as a basketball team. Different guys doing things. Obviously PJ continues to grow as a player here and do unbelievable things. But like I told him, its also his challenge.The Gamecocks (9-1) improved to 2-1 without Thornwell, who has been suspended indefinitely for violating athletic department policy.With Sind being out, we had only two seniors out on the floor. So as Coach said, were young. Were a young team and were just looking to grow, Dozier said.We came out first half a little sluggish. We make our offense out of our defense and wasnt doing that the first half, the 6-foot-6 sophomore guard added. We went into the locker room and Coach gave us that word that we needed and came out with the intensity we should have started with.Jahmal McMurray led USF (5-4) with 25 points. Malik Fitts had 12 points and Geno Thorpe finished with 11 points and nine rebounds for the Bulls, who led 37-31 at halftime.South Carolina began the second half with a 17-9 burst to take a 48-41 lead. Dozier and Notice keyed the initiial surge and Dozier took over down the stretch, when the Gamecocks led by as many as 13. LeBron James Jersey. We got, maybe, a little bit complacent. Didnt come out with the fire that we had in the first half, McMurray said. The second half, we just have to ... come out with the same fire.THE BIG PICTURESouth Carolina, which has its highest ranking since being No. 14 in the final poll of the 1997-98 season, obviously misses Thornwell, who leads them in assists, as well as scoring and rebounding. With Notice missing the first eight shots he attempted, including six from 3-point range, the Gamecocks trailed at halftime for the first time this season.Not surprisingly, South Florida faded down the stretch. Luis Santos made a layup to trim South Carolinas lead to 64-61 with 7 minutes left, however the Bulls didnt score again from the field until Bo Zeiglers basket with 29 seconds left.FIRST BIG TESTSouth Carolina is only Power 5 opponent USF is scheduled to face this season. The Bulls fell to 0-4 against ranked opponents under coach Orlando Antigua and have dropped 20 consecutive games to Top 25 opponents since knocking off No. 15 Louisville on the road on Feb. 29, 2012.POLL IMPLICATIONSThe Gamecocks may lose some ground in the next AP poll, however, rebounding on the road -- albeit against an opponent thats had its share of problems against a weak schedule -- will likely keep the Gamecocks in the Top 25.UNIENDO LOS TOROSUSF designated Saturday as Uniendo Los Toros, which in English translates to Uniting The Bulls. The game featured two of three Hispanic-American head coaches in NCAA Division I in South Carolinas Martin and USFs Antigua. Miamis Jim Larranaga is the third. Early arrivals among the announced crowd of 2,489 at the Sun Dome received white T-shirts commemorating the occasion.UP NEXTSouth Carolina: Returns home to face intrastate rival Clemson on Wednesday.South Florida: Faces Northern Illinois at home on Tuesday.---More AP college basketball: www.collegebasketball.ap.org and https://twitter.com/AP-Top25.

Fernando Alonso does not think it is unrealistic to target a points finish at the Malaysian Grand Prix despite the fact he will start from the back of the Sepang grid. Nick Moore Jersey .Alonso has accumulated 45 places of grid drops this weekend after a tactical engine change on Friday and taking on new parts on Saturday morning. That means he will start at the back of the grid, as he did in Belgium when he battled back to seventh.That penalty meant he spent FP3 focusing on race set-up, before completing the solitary lap he needed to in Q1 and watching the rest of qualifying from the garage. After watching teammate Jenson Button qualify ninth Alonso is excited to see what McLaren can do from the back row.Yeah, definitely, were looking forward, Alonso said. Yesterday the car seemed to respond well, P5 in FP1, P7 in FP2, so definitely feeling OK this weekend. Some new tyres tomorrow to exploit the potential of the car so well try and do a good race.I think a points finish is an ambitious target but still possible depending on what happens in front of us as well and how the first laps go in our favour. But I think we are ready to really enjoy it because the pace is there and exploiting the new tyre advantage hopefully we can recover places.Having run the upgraded Honda engine on Friday, Alonso switched back to the old specification for the rest of the weekend. The Spaniard does not think there should be much difference between the two, despite the impressive times he posted on Friday.Well the upgrade is more for better reliability, so the performance should be the same.

The Montreal Canadiens announced on Friday that the veteran forward will return to the teams line-up on Saturday night when the Habs visit the Nashville Predators. EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- Mired in a four-game skid and their playoff hopes dwindling, the New York Jets shook things up.Geno Smith is in at quarterback. Ryan Fitzpatrick is out.Now, Todd Bowles bunch will see if any of it can make a difference when the Jets (1-5) take on the Baltimore Ravens (3-3) at MetLife Stadium on Sunday.I think its an opportunity for all of us to go out there and try to get a win, Smith said. Were on a four-game losing streak. No one likes it. Its a bitter taste in our mouths.We just have to put together some good practices, build momentum up into the game and then go out there and just play recklessly, play hard with a reckless abandon and do whatever we have to do to get this victory.That was the thinking for Bowles when he decided to switch from Fitzpatrick , who had thrown an NFL-leading 11 interceptions and just five touchdowns in the Jets first six games.New York ranks 26th in overall offense and is last in the NFL in scoring with 15.8 points per game and red zone offense with eight TDs in 22 trips inside opponents 20-yard line (36.4 percent).Hopefully it creates a spark, Bowles said. It gives (Smith) the opportunity to play. Were 1-5 and we havent shown any signs of progress on offense, so I made the change.John Harbaugh and the Ravens -- who have dropped three straight -- entered the week expecting to see Fitzpatrick, but the coach didnt seem too concerned about seeing a different quarterback.It wont change a ton, because I think the offense is going to remain, essentially, the same with what they do, Harbaugh said.It will nuance a little bit in certain directions. We didnt hear that until right at the end of practice out here (Wednesday), but we already put in some stuff that we thought would be more Geno Smith-oriented-type things.Here are some other things to know heading into the Ravens matchup with the Jets:HOWS JOE?: Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco missed the teams first two practices of the week with a right shoulder injury, but he expects to play.Flacco said his shoulder was sore and thought rest would help him be ready. He was injured during the Ravens 27-23 loss to the New York Giants last Sunday and didnt feel any pain until after the game. Flacco added that the MRI results showed nothing to worry about.Its possible, Harbaugh said, that Flacco could sit out practice the entire week and still play. If not, Flaccos backup is Ryan Mallett.Id say hes day-to-day, Harbaugh said of Flacco. In my mind, hes a goo. Garrett Griffin Jersey. BACK TO NEW JERSEY: A scheduling quirk has the Ravens playing in New Jersey for a second straight Sunday. Theyll hope to escape with a split after losing to the Giants 27-23 .Going there, coming back, and going right back -- Ive never done that before, receiver Mike Wallace said. I think it will be better for us the second time, because we know exactly what to expect, we know exactly how it is going to go. It wasnt a bad trip at all. We went on the train, and it was about two hours. It wasnt bad.NEW CREW: In Smiths previous start for the Jets in the 2014 regular-season finale at Miami, a 37-24 win, he completed 20 of 25 passes for a career-high 358 yards and a perfect 158.3 passer rating.None of the eight players who caught a pass from him that day is on the Jets active roster.Eric Decker is the only one even still on the team, but is on injured reserve with a shoulder injury and also had hip surgery earlier this week. Jace Amaro (Tennessee), Jeff Cumberland (San Diego), Zach Sudfeld (free agent), Jeremy Kerley (San Francisco), Chris Owusu (free agent), Chris Ivory (Jacksonville) and Chris Johnson (Arizona) are all elsewhere.LACK OF SACKS: The Ravens are expected to be without career sacks leader Terrell Suggs (biceps ) and Elvis Dumervil (foot), who had a team-high six in 2015.That leaves veteran tackle Timmy Jernigan and young linebackers Matthew Judon, Kamalei Correa and ZaDarius Smith to pick up the slack.Ill be excited to see those guys play, Harbaugh said of the inexperienced trio of LBs. I really am looking forward to it.The Ravens have 11 sacks this season, including five by Suggs and three by Jernigan. Judon, Correa and Smith have yet to collar the quarterback.GROUNDED: Since entering the NFL in 2008, Jets running back Matt Forte has 13,171 yards from scrimmage -- 8,962 yards rushing, 4,209 yards receiving -- the most in the league during that span.But after a solid start with 196 yards and three touchdowns on 52 carries in his first two games with the Jets, Forte has run for just 164 yards and no TDs on 50 carries in the four games since -- including a season-low 19 yards on nine carries Monday night at Arizona.

VANCOUVER, British Columbia -- The Vancouver Canucks are being rewarded for giving youth a chance. Cheap Panthers Jerseys Authentic .Not exactly by choice.Despite being ravaged by injuries to key defensemen Alex Edler (finger) and Chris Tanev (ankle), and winger Jannik Hansen (ribs), the Canucks won two straight games and six of their last 10 (6-3-1) heading into Thursdays contest against the Anaheim Ducks.In other words, times have changed since the Canucks (10-11-2) suffered nine straight losses earlier in the season. But they are still looking to for more consistency.Its been tough -- win one, lose one, win one, second-year defenseman Ben Hutton, who stood out in Vancouvers semi-surge. Hopefully we can continue to roll with it and get on a nice little streak here.With Edler out, Hutton, 23, and rookie rearguard Troy Stecher, 22, stepped to the fore and helped the Canucks generate more offense as indicated in Tuesdays 5-4 victory over the Minnesota Wild. Hutton furnished a goal and an assist while Stecher provided two assists. More importantly, the duo figured in two power-play goals with Hutton scoring one and Stecher assisting on another.As a result, the Canucks power play scored twice in two minutes -- after only scoring once in three weeks during first quarter of the season.You gotta like that, Canucks coach Willie Desjardins said. They are both young guys and what I like about both those guys is they want to do it. They dont look for somebody else to do it. They want the puck and they want to make something happen -- and you want that. Sometimes you will make mistakes with it, but in the end that is what you are going to win with.Youth is also paying dividends up front as winger Sven Baertschi, 24, playing his second full NHL season, and center Bo Horvat, 21, a third-year player, form an effective line with veteran winger Alex Burrows. Baertschi scored two goals against the Wild and, following a slow start to the season, has three goals and 10 points.I like that line, Desjardins said. That line has been good, and (Horvat) is a real catalyst on that line -- hes a real driver. He comes with speed and he comes hard and every shift he is like that. Its been a good line for us.Horvat, who is repeatedly mentioned as a future captain candidate, leads the Canucks with eight goals and eight assists. His 16 points are two better than perennial team scoring leaders Daniel and Henrik Sedin.A rejuvenated Burrows, 35, who once played regularly with the Sedins but has become a role player in the past two seasons, has four goals and five assists and is well on pace to exceed the 22 points he posted last season.Meanwhile, the Ducks (11-8-4) are also getting offense from some unsung heroes. Rickard Rakell leads Anaheim in goals with nine after netting the winner against Montreal on Tuesday.It seems like Im finding the right spot to put the puck in right now, Rakell, a 23-year-old Sweden native who signed a new six-year contract in October, told The Orange County Register. Im just trying to keep it going. Im not thinking about it too much. Its obviously fun to score goals.The Ducks are also getting some timely goals from the blue line. Defenseman Cam Fowler scored his seventh goal of the season against Montreal and has already exceeded the five he mustered in 2015-16.Goaltender John Gibson also has a chance to build on a strong performance against Montreal if he gets the nod. Gibson matched a career-high 39 saves in the win over the Canadiens. Black Panthers Jerseys Online . The scientists believe the small earthquake during a Marshawn Lynch touchdown was likely greater than Lynchs famous "beast quake" touchdown run three years ago, which also came against New Orleans during a playoff game. Cheap Panthers Jerseys China . -- Claudio Bieler hadnt scored since early September, and not from the run of play since mid-July. http://www.cheappanthersjerseyselite.com/ .

RICHMOND, Va. -- The Colonial Athletic Association has announced it will pull its womens golf championship from North Carolina unless a state law that limits protections for LGBT people is repealed or voided by Jan. 10.The league issued a statement Friday announcing its plan to possibly move the neutral-site tournament, scheduled for April 14-16 in Southport, North Carolina.The CAA volleyball championship will be held on UNC Wilmingtons campus in November because the Seahawks earned the right to host by winning last years title, and UNC Wilmington and Elon will be allowed to host games in the soccer tournaments.The CAA will not yet take action on its other spring championships scheduled in mens and womens tennis (Elon, in Burlington, North Carolina) or baseball (UNNC Wilmington). Cheap Panthers Jerseys. The statement also said the league will send a letter to North Carolina Gov. Pat McCrory, who signed the law this spring, to express its opposition to the measure and call for its immediate repeal.The NCAA and the Atlantic Coast Conference both withdrew neutral-site championships from the state earlier this month because of the states HB2 law. The Southern Conference said earlier this week that it needs more information before it decides whether to move its four championships scheduled for the state.Headquartered in Richmond, the CAA has 10 member schools in eight states in either the mid-Atlantic or Northeast.
