Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Lucky Whitehead was ruled out of Sundays game against the New York Giants for violating team rules. Cale Makar Jersey .The team made the announcement before flying to New Jersey but did not disclose what rule was broken.Sources say Whitehead was late to meetings Saturday morning before team departure.Whitehead has been the Cowboys primary kick and punt returner this season. He has returned 10 kickoffs for a 23.8-yard average with a long of 33. He has also averaged 8.8 yards per punt return with a long of 39. He has caught two passes for 40 yards and has 86 yards on eight carries on jet sweeps.The Cowboys would likely turn to Cole Beasley and Lance Dunbar to handle the punt and kickoff duties against the Giants. Dez Bryant is always an option for punt returns but has not been used in that role since 2012. Rob Ramage Jersey .com) - The Montreal Canadiens embark on their first road trip of the season as they head out west to battle the Calgary Flames on Wednesday night. Teemu Selanne Avalanche Jersey . The Cleveland Indians, Tampa Bay Rays, and Texas Rangers all won on Sunday meaning the Rangers will host the Rays in a play-in game on Monday. http:///...io-avalanche-jersey/ . Rob Manfred, baseballs chief operating officer, testified last week during the grievance filed by the players union to overturn Rodriguezs 211-game suspension. A person familiar with the hearing, speaking on condition of anonymity, told The Associated Press on Saturday that Manfred testified the sport wasnt concerned whether Bosch distributed performance-enhancing drugs to minors because MLBs interest was his relationship with players under investigation. With Warren Gatlands main coaching team for next years British & Irish Lions tour now confirmed, thoughts will shift to the make-up of his playing squad.Debates will rage in clubhouses across the British Isles, and much excitement will be derived from the fact that Gatland is not shackled by the thoughts of his international coaching rivals.He has already opened the door to a call up for Danny Cipriani by admitting I wouldnt be doing my job if I didnt discuss the Wasps fly-half.So, should Cipriani put his summer holiday plans on hold? ESPN looks back at the last five Lions tours, to find out how the bolters got on.Will Greenwood (1997)Sir Ian McGeechan made a statement with his Lions selection in 1997, picking the then uncapped Greenwood ahead of England captain Phil de Glanville.The 24-year-old repaid the coachs faith with some solid displays for the midweek team, before his tour was cut short by a brutal injury.Playing against the Free State, Greenwood swallowed his tongue following a tackle by?Jaco Coetzee and came to just before an incision was about to be made to clear his airways.Fortunately for Greenwood he made a full recovery, going on to make his England debut that autumn before becoming an integral member of the team that won the 2003 Rugby World Cup. He would also feature on two subsequent Lions tours.Jason Robinson (2001)Robinson may seem an odd inclusion given his rugby league pedigree, and what he went on to achieve in union, but his place on the 2001 tour of Australia was far from assured.He had made an inauspicious start to his England career, making three appearances as a replacement in the 2001 Six Nations without crossing the whitewash.Graham Henry saw Robinsons union potential and his gamble was rewarded with a try-scoring performance as the Lions won the first Test convincingly in Brisbane.Another score would follow in the deciding clash in Sydney, but it wasnt enough as the tourists lost a tight series 2-1.Robinson learned from his experience, though, and would score again on his return to the scene of the final Test two years later -- as England won the World Cup. Joe Sakic Jersey. yan Jones (2005)Much was made of Sir Clive Woodwards initial 44-man 2005 Lions squad, featuring as it did 20 Englishman and only 10 Grand Slam-winning Welshmen.Young back row Ryan Jones was one of the omissions, instead being selected to tour North America with Wales, at the end of his first season in Test rugby.Jones played just one Test on that tour before an injury to Scotlands Simon Taylor prompted a call from New Zealand.Just two weeks after his arrival, the then 24-year-old would come on as a replacement in the opening Test. Mounting injuries and a collective loss of form ensured that he started the remaining two, as the All Blacks secured a 3-0 series whitewash.Keith Earls (2009)Like Jones, Keith Earls had been an international for less than 12 months before the call came from the Lions.Earls international career consisted of a mere two caps -- and one start -- before McGeechan selected him ahead of established Ireland centre, Gordon DArcy.The versatile back would not make a Test appearance, but following a nervy debut he went on to score tries against Free State Cheetahs and the Emerging Springboks.Earls was overlooked for the 2013 tour to Australia, but has been an important presence for both Munster and Ireland, racking up a half century of Test caps in the process.Matt Stevens (2013)Gatlands inclusion of Matt Stevens for the tour to Australia four years ago should give Cipriani hope of a call this time around.The prop had seemingly ruled himself out of the running when he announced his retirement from international rugby less than 12 months previously.He had missed the previous tour to South Africa, too, as he served a two-year drugs ban, but his experience helped convince Gatland that he was worthy of a place on the plane Down Under.Stevens would not see any action in the successful Test series but did make six appearances in tour matches.?
