JACKSONVILLE Authentic Brian Allen Jersey , Fla. (AP) The Jacksonville Jaguars unceremoniously dumped the longest-tenured player on their roster Tuesday, and he wasn’t happy about it.

The Jaguars released veteran tight end Marcedes Lewis after 12 seasons to save $3.5 million in salary-cap space. The move came the same day Jacksonville parted ways with receiver Allen Hurns to save $7 million.

Both players are now free agents and can sign with any team that wants them.

Hurns’ future had been in doubt since Dede Westbrook and Keelan Cole emerged as big-play receivers late last season. Hurns really became expendable when the Jaguars signed two receivers last week, bringing back Marqise Lee and adding Donte Moncrief in free agency.

Lewis thought his spot was safe, even after Jacksonville signed Austin Seferian-Jenkins and Niles Paul last week. The Jaguars picked up an option in Lewis’ contract last month.

Lewis told The Associated Press he felt ”disrespected” by the timing of the move. It came a week after free agency began.

”I wish they would have done it sooner Wholesale Troy Apke Jersey ,” he said. ”I think I deserved a little better than this.”

The 33-year-old Lewis, a first-round draft pick in 2006, played in 170 games with Jacksonville. His 375 receptions and 4,502 yards receiving both rank third in team history. His 33 receiving touchdowns are second-most in franchise history Adidas John Tavares Jersey , trailing only Jimmy Smith (67).

He said he hopes to continue playing and would prefer to stay closer to his home and daughter in Los Angeles. Lewis has ties to former Jaguars coach and current Los Angeles Chargers defensive coordinator Gus Bradley, and his college position coach, Jon Embree, is tight ends coach for the San Francisco 49ers. Also Jerome Baker Jersey Elite , former Jaguars offensive coordinator Greg Olson now holds the same position with the Oakland Raiders.

”I’ve still got a few more years left in me,” Lewis said. ”Any team that gets me will get a guy who does everything the right way on and off the field and with 100 percent effort. That’s all I did in Jacksonville. I always did what they asked me to do, which is why the way they let me go is annoying in that sense.”

Hurns would have been behind Lee and Moncrief on the depth chart, and Jacksonville felt his salary was too high for a backup who has missed 11 games the last two seasons.Wholesale Geron Christian Jersey

Hurns has 189 receptions for 2 Rashaan Gaulden Super Bowl LI Jersey ,669 yards and 21 touchdowns in four years since signing with the Jaguars as an undrafted rookie from Miami. But he caught just 74 passes for 961 yards and five scores the last two years while dealing with a sports hernia in 2016 and a high ankle sprain in 2017.

Dave Gettleman has learned many lessons as an NFL executive. The new general manager of the New York Giants has one mantra in the draft room.

COLUMBUS Authentic Kareem Martin Jersey , Ohio (AP) The Columbus Blue Jackets have signed forward Nathan Gerbe to a one-year, two-way contract.

The 30-year-old last played in the NHL during the 2015-16 season Wholesale Tremaine Edmunds Jersey , when he was with Carolina. He has played the last two seasons in Switzerland.

PYEONGCHANG Authentic Kyle Schwarber Jersey , South Korea (AP) Signs posted around the Olympic venues urge extreme caution. Nine hundred troops stream into the area to help. Worried organizers sequester 1,200 people in their rooms.

Officials are scrambling on the eve of the biggest planned event in South Korea in years – not because of anything related to North Korea and national security, but in an attempt to arrest the spread of norovirus at the Pyeongchang Games.

Local media are fretting over a ”virus panic.” South Koreans, always quick to air their views online, have poured scorn on the government’s response and preparations. Are the games hygienic? What will people think about South Korea? Could this spread to the athletes?

Norovirus fears may turn out to be much ado about nothing. But with a national reputation on the line, officials are scrambling to contain its spread. No one here wants these games associated more with disease than athletics in the manner that Zika Authentic Steven Wright Jersey , a mosquito-borne disease linked to a rare birth defect, loomed over the Rio Olympics in 2016.

According to Olympics organizers, the norovirus spread began Sunday when private security workers staying in the Jinbu area of Pyeongchang started complaining of headaches, stomach pain and diarrhea.


INDIANAPOLIS (AP) – Josh McDaniels has backed out of a deal to become the Indianapolis’ Colts new coach, a decision that shocked the franchise hours after it announced his hiring.

The Colts confirmed McDaniels’ decision in a statement Tuesday night after reports emerged that the Patriots’ offensive coordinator had opted to stay in New England with coach Bill Belichick.

McDaniels had agreed to contract terms with the Colts to replace the fired Chuck Pagano. A news conference had been scheduled for Wednesday at Lucas Oil Stadium.

The Colts said McDaniels informed them Tuesday evening that he would not sign the deal.

”Although we are surprised and disappointed, we will resume our head coaching search immediately and find the right fit to lead our team and organization on and off the field Authentic Bill Lee Jersey ,” the Colts said in the statement.

The Patriots and McDaniels’ agent, Bob LaMont, did not immediately respond to requests for comment.

By spurning the Colts after they waited 22 days to hire him, McDaniels leaves the reeling franchise as the only one without a coach. New England defensive coordinator Matt Patricia left Belichick’s staff a day after the Patriots’ Super Bowl loss to become coach of the Detroit Lions.

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) – New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski can be heard on a 911 call calmly telling a dispatcher that his home was burglarized while he was at the Super Bowl.

Police in Foxborough, Massachusetts Authentic Andre Ethier Jersey , released a portion of the call on Tuesday.

He can be heard telling the dispatcher on Monday: ”This is Rob Gronkowski calling, and while I was gone my whole house got robbed, while on the Super Bowl trip. And I just got back.”

A police report says someone broke a window to get in. In a recording of a call between responding officers and dispatch, a dispatcher says ”multiple safes and possible guns” were taken.

The police report redacted all details of what was taken.

The report says Gronkowski lives with two roommates, both of whom reported items stolen.


NEW YORK (AP) – Knicks All-Star Kristaps Porzingis has torn the ACL in his left knee.

Porzingis was hurt in the second quarter of New York’s loss to Milwaukee on Tuesday night. He dunked with 8:46 left in the half and landed awkwardly, crashing to the court and holding his left knee. He was eventually helped up and taken to the locker room.

He left the arena for an MRI exam that revealed the injury. Porzingis had scored 10 points before he was hurt. He was selected last month for his first All-Star appearance.

NEW YORK (AP) – The Los Angeles Lakers have been fined $50 Authentic Mike Piazza Jersey ,000 for violating the NBA’s tampering rule again.

League officials made the announcement Tuesday in response to an interview team president Earvin ”Magic” Johnson did with ESPN.

Johnson was discussing the skills of Milwaukee star Giannis Antetokounmpo and said the Greek native would put the Bucks ”on the map” and bring them an NBA title.

It’s the third time in less than 12 months the Lakers have been disciplined for tampering.

The team was fined $500,000 last summer after the league found general manager Rob Pelinka had been communicating with Paul George’s agent while George was with the Indiana Pacers. Previously, the NBA issued a warning to the team after Johnson winked at George during a television interview.


NEW YORK (AP) – The New York Liberty are remaining under the control of New York Knicks owner James Dolan and Madison Square Garden for now.

The WNBA team was put up for sale in November. An MSG executive confirmed to The Associated Press on Tuesday that Dolan’s group has decided to keep the Liberty at this time.

New York will move most of its games out of the Garden this season and into an arena in suburban Westchester County, two people familiar with the situation told the AP. The people spoke on condition of anonymity because no official announcement has been made.

The Liberty were one of the WNBA’s original franchises and have been owned by Dolan and Madison Square Garden since the league was founded in 1996.

TORONTO — The Toronto Maple Leafs and the St. Louis Blues hope to shake off the rust and recent losses when they return from their midseason vacations Tuesday night at the Air Canada Centre.

The Blues (26-17-3) lost three in a row before taking a six-day break in the schedule.

The Maple Leafs (25-17-3) lost two in a row before entering a five-day break.

Article continues below ...

“Any time you take time off Authentic Phil Niekro Jersey , getting the motor running and getting skating again is not as easy as you may think,” Maple Leafs coach Mike Babcock said.

The Maple Leafs are 4-4-2 in their past 10 games.

“I think if I’m not mistaken last year’s break came at a time when we were rolling, and we didn’t really want to go away for a week,” Maple Leafs defenseman Morgan Rielly said. “Right now, I think a little break might not be the worst thing.”

The Blues, meanwhile Authentic Ben Zobrist Jersey , are 4-5-1 in their past 10 games. They started the season 13-3-1.

“I don’t think there’s anyone inside our locker room that that break wasn’t good for,” Blues coach Mike Yeo said.

The Blues defeated the Maple Leafs 6-4 on Nov. 4 in St. Louis.

Despite the Blues’ recent struggles, they have had some good news. Left winger Jaden Schwartz skated Monday for the first time since he suffered a broken ankle on Dec. 9 in a game against the Detroit Red Wings.

Schwartz, who has 14 goals and 21 assists in 30 games, did not accompany the team to Toronto. He could return to action by the end of the month.

“Another positive,” Yeo said. “I’m happy about that. We’ll see how he’s doing. We’re happy to have him back.”

The Blues are 6-9-1 without Schwartz and have not been scoring.

“We’re on the light at the end of the tunnel with (Schwartz) Authentic Kyle Hendricks Jersey , but I think part of it (the scoring struggles) is sort of a self-fulfilling prophecy,” Blues general manager Doug Armstrong said. “When you’re not scoring, you push to score more. When you push to score more, you’re worse defensively.

“We have to be comfortable again playing in low-scoring games. And I think we’ve lost our comfort level in that and we have to regain that. We have to play time-and-score to a higher efficiency. Every play doesn’t have to be a home run. We have to just methodically go through and push games along and play to win.”

The Blues recalled centers Ivan Barbashev and Tage Thompson and defenseman Vince Dunn from the American Hockey League, where they were assigned so they could continue to play during the break.

Barbashev and Dunn each had a goal and an assist for Chicago of the AHL and Thompson had a power-play goal for San Antonio.

“Those guys played well,” Yeo said. “Those guys did their job Authentic Mike Piazza Jersey , and we’re happy to have them back. It’s a good thing for them to keep playing.”

Meanwhile, the Maple Leafs recalled defenseman Travis Dermott and center Frederik Gauthier, who spent the break with the Toronto Marlies of the AHL.

Dermott, 21, made his NHL debut on Jan. 6 against the Vancouver Canucks and had an assist while making a good impression.

He has two goals and 16 assists in 28 games with the Marlies this season.

Gauthier, 22 Authentic Brian Roberts Jersey , has played in five games with the Maple Leafs this season. He has two goals and two assists in 33 career NHL games.

Maple Leafs defenseman Nikita Zaitsev is still out with a lower-body injury and Babcock said he had no time frame for his return.

“It’s nice to kind of get a mental break from everything and come back re-energized,” Maple Leafs center Auston Matthews said after practice on Monday.

ANAHEIM Authentic Jackie Bradley Jr Jersey , Calif. (AP) Down by two goals in the third period and playing without their starting goalie, the Anaheim Ducks were in danger of taking a loss that would certainly hurt their playoff chances.

But the Ducks have been through plenty of turmoil this season, and that experience was on display as they rallied for a critical win.

Ondrej Kase scored 1:34 into overtime and Anaheim defeated the Colorado Avalanche 4-3 on Sunday night.

Article continues below ...

”It’s been a hard year,” said Ducks forward Andrew Cogliano, who had a goal and an assist. ”It’s been a grind in terms of injuries and how we’ve played, and we want to make it count. You don’t want to not be in it Authentic Orlando Cepeda Jersey , and I think we’re pushing ourselves right to the bitter end to get in there.”

Adam Henrique and Ryan Kesler also scored for the Ducks, who moved into third place in the Pacific Division. Anaheim is one point ahead of Los Angeles with three games remaining for both teams.

Kase used a subtle fake on a 2-on-1 break to get Avalanche goalie Jonathan Bernier moving left, creating enough space to win it by going to the short side over Bernier’s right shoulder.

”He’s a special talent,” Kesler said. ”He does something stupid every night, and that was definitely pretty stupid.”

While Kase won it with speed and skill, the Ducks got to overtime thanks to hard work. They were determined to get more bodies in front of Bernier in the third period Authentic Pedro Martinez Jersey , and the grit paid off as Henrique cut Anaheim’s deficit to 3-2 at 7:43 with a sharp-angle shot and Kesler tied it 3-all at 9:19 by pouncing on a rebound in the slot.

”That’s the way we are built,” Kesler said. ”Obviously, they are more of a skill team over there, so we want to play to our strengths and we did tonight.”

Ryan Miller made 19 saves after replacing John Gibson at the start of the second period, helping the Ducks to their fifth straight home win. Gibson, who made 10 saves before departing Authentic Jacoby Ellsbury Jersey , appeared to be shaken up late in the first when Gabriel Landeskog was hit from behind by Kesler and knocked the goalie down.Authentic Kenny Lofton Jersey

Kesler said Landeskog went out of his way to make contact with Gibson.

”He threw himself into Gibby,” Kesler said. ”I gave him a slight jab, and he knows what he’s doing there. He knows better than that.”

Gibson was being evaluated for an undisclosed injury, Ducks coach Randy Carlyle said.

Tyson Jost scored twice and Alexander Kerfoot had a goal and an assist for Colorado, which passed St. Louis for the second wild-card spot in the Western Conference. The Avalanche lead the Blues by one point, but St. Louis has four games remaining to Colorado’s three.

”A point is a point Authentic Mickey Mantle Jersey ,” Avalanche coach Jared Bednar said. ”You’re not going to know if it’s enough, if it’s not enough. The only day the standings matter is next Saturday.”

Bernier made 28 saves.

The Avalanche took a 1-0 lead 1:16 into the game when Kerfoot got his 18th goal under unusual circumstances. Kerfoot won a faceoff against Rickard Rakell in the right circle and flicked the puck to his left, where it struck Corey Perry’s stake and redirected in.

But the Ducks tied it at 1 on a breakaway by Cogliano at 6:08.

Jost put the Avalanche up 2-1 at 1:04 of the second, scoring for the second game in a row on a backhand for a power-play goal. He made it 3-1 at 12:10 for his first career multi-goal game.

NOTES: Ducks D Cam Fowler sustained an upper-body injury in the third. … The Avalanche went 5-3-3 in the first game of a back-to-back this season. … Ducks D Francois Beauchemin played in his 900th NHL game.

BALTIMORE (AP) Whether it’s early in the season Josh Sitton Jersey Elite , late in the year or in the postseason, the Pittsburgh Steelers will always derive satisfaction from beating the Baltimore Ravens – especially on the road.

Pittsburgh hadn’t won in Baltimore since 2012 before ringing up a 26-9 victory Sunday. The Steelers gained sole possession of first place in the AFC North with the win, but because it comes just four weeks into the season coach Mike Tomlin reserved judgment on its significance.

”If we’re good, some of those variables are less important: opponent, game location,” Tomlin said. ”That’s really what we’re striving for. We want to be the type of team that can win regardless of circumstance, game location, opponent, so forth. But acknowledging where we are Adidas Daniel Sedin Jersey , it was a good performance today.”

Article continues below ...

Pittsburgh (3-1) built a 19-0 halftime lead and coasted past their division rivals. To make matters sweeter, many of the purple-clad fans headed toward the exits with more than five minutes left.

”This is huge for us,” declared running back Le’Veon Bell , who carried 35 times for 144 yards and two touchdowns.

Ben Roethlisberger went 18 for 30 for 216 yards and a touchdown for the Steelers, who enjoyed their most lopsided win in Baltimore since the Ravens came into existence in 1996.

The Ravens (2-2) made a game of it in the third quarter, cutting the gap to 19-9, but the league’s 32nd-ranked offense didn’t have enough firepower to complete the comeback.

Some things we learned about these AFC North rivals, who won’t meet again until December:

ANTHEM: The Ravens took a knee collectively before the national anthem on Sunday, and the crowd instinctively booed -even though the announcer told the fans that the players were aligned in prayer.

When the music started Authentic Ian Thomas Jersey , however, the Ravens stood at attention on the sideline.

After the game, Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco said it’s time to get back to concentrating on football.

”Early in the week we had conversations about it. You would go home and think about it,” he said. ”The most important thing for us is to play football because that’s how we make our living. That’s how we support our families. We have to keep our eyes on the prize, which is this great game.”

The Steelers stood together on the sideline after remaining in the tunnel one week earlier in Chicago.

STREAK OVER: The Steelers were delighted to leave Baltimore victorious for the first time in four years. No one, perhaps, was happier than Roethlisberger.

”They’ve owned us here, and it’s no secret. I take that personally,” Roethlisberger said afterward. ”When you feel like you can’t come to this place and win a football game Jonathan Cooper Super Bowl LI Jersey , it bothers you.”

The Steelers’ 26 points are the most they’ve scored in Baltimore with Roethlisberger calling signals. With the win, Roethlisberger is now just 3-7 in his career in Baltimore.

Maybe that’s what makes it so satisfying to win.

”It’s here. It’s hostile. My goodness, that’s fun,” he said. ”It’s fun to come win this football game, here especially.”

BALL CONTROL: The Ravens like what they’ve seen from running back Alex Collins, whose 50-yard run set up their only touchdown.

But his second fumble of the season set up Pittsburgh’s first touchdown, and it’s clear his playing time will be determined by his ability to hold onto the football.

”When you come in here and drop the ball, I’m not going to tolerate it,” Harbaugh said. ”The leash isn’t going to be long on that.” ?

Said Collins: ”You just can’t dwell on it. Can’t think about mistakes. I just have to keep going and do the right things.”

NO OFFENSE: Flacco went 31 for 49 for 235 yards Adidas Artemi Panarin Jersey , getting picked off twice and sacked four times.

The Ravens have scored only seven touchdowns in four games, Flacco has six interceptions compared to four TD passes, and points are becoming increasingly hard to come by.

”It’s frustrating,” said wide receiver Jeremy Maclin, who had three catches for 21 yards Sunday.

THE MASK: Ravens LB Terrell Suggs had one tackle and no sacks, but no one on either team made a better entrance.

Suggs came out of the tunnel in the same mask worn by the villain Bane in ”The Dark Knight Rises” movie.

”That was great,” Ravens cornerback Lardarius Webb said. ”It brought us to another level. It brought the crowd to another level.”

Suggs came out with a gladiator mask before a 2014 game against Pittsburgh and was ultimately fined by the NFL.

EDMONTON Kalen Ballage Jersey Elite , Alberta (AP) The Los Angeles Kings took advantage of a five-minute power play and rolled to a big win against a Pacific Division opponent.

Marian Gaborik, Dustin Brown and Adrian Kemp scored during the lengthy man advantage, and Jonathan Quick made 32 saves for his third shutout of the season to lead the Kings to a 5-0 victory over the Edmonton Oilers on Tuesday night.

The Oilers got the power play after Oilers forward Patrick Maroon was given a major penalty for a hit to the head on Kings defenseman Drew Doughty late in the second period.

Article continues below ...

Brown said getting payback for the hit was a motivator.

”That’s part of it, especially when it’s probably our best player,” Brown said. ”But probably more so it’s a divisional game and we can finish it in the first five minutes of the third period. And that’s what we did.

”The power play hasn’t been great for us this year Wholesale Antonio Callaway Jersey , but you don’t need a great power play, just a timely one.”

Doughty left the game after the hit but was able to return in the third period.

”When stuff like that happens, your team just comes together, scoring three goals on the power play to really shove it up their butts was awesome,” Doughty said.

”I’m feeling all right now. I didn’t see it at all. He got me right in the head. I didn’t have the puck Adidas Wayne Simmonds Jersey , that’s why I was so shocked by it. But I’ve known Maroon for a long time, he’s just trying to finish a hit. I don’t know that he meant to try and hurt me. I forgive him.”

For his part, Maroon said there was no intent to injure on the play.

”I’m glad he came back and finished the game,” Maroon said. ”Honestly, I’m a big forward Alex Cappa Jersey Elite , just going in to do my job on the forecheck. My elbow didn’t come up, it’s just unfortunate that my body hit him in the head.

”I play the game hard. I’m just mad they gave me a match (penalty) and it hurt us.”

Gaborik began the flurry by using a screen to rifle his eighth goal of the season past Talbot 1:36 into the third. They got another one four minutes into the third when Anze Kopitar’s shot hit a defender on the way toward Talbot and was helped on its way into the net by Brown.

Los Angeles made it 4-0 with its third power-play goal shortly afterwards, as a shot that caromed off the glass had Talbot looking the wrong way, allowing Kempe to score a gift goal.

Brown added another goal with 1:32 remaining to cap the scoring. Andy Andreoff scored late in the second period for the Kings, who are 4-1-2 in their last seven games.

Cam Talbot stopped 28 shots as Edmonton lost its fourth straight while getting outscored 18-6 in that stretch.

The Kings had the bulk of the early chances before Edmonton started to pick up the pace later in the scoreless first period Wholesale Vinny Curry Jersey , with Quick making 14 saves, while Talbot made 12 stops.

Los Angeles finally broke the scoreless deadlock with 5:39 remaining in the second period on a 2-on-1 break as Torrey Mitchell fed Andreoff and he beat Talbot for just his second goal of the season.

Edmonton came close to tying it with 40 seconds left in the second, but Jesse Puljujarvi’s shot rang off the post with a wide open net.

NOTES: Oilers F Connor McDavid has now gone three games without a point for the first time in his NHL career. … It was the first of four meetings between the two teams this season. … The Kings were without Jeff Carter (ankle) and Christian Folin (upper body).

It’s time.

After 15 weeks of the NFL season Adidas Sergei Bobrovsky Jersey , it’s time to acknowledge a whole bunch of items that have become apparent.

Some did so over the course of the schedule, and some became crystallized Sunday.

Article continues below ...

Such as:

– Teams get antsy and/or dumb when they play the Patriots.

Looks as if the AFC road to the Super Bowl will go through Foxborough again, but not because an opponent played with fear against New England. Many do, of course. And others make ridiculous decisions with a chance to beat Tom Brady and Company; think back to the two most recent NFL championships the Patriots won, against Seattle and Atlanta.

The Steelers had no fear Sunday. And they had some real bad luck once more; in the AFC title contest last January, they lost Le’Veon Bell early. This time, it was Antonio Brown.

Yet they were in position to win, or at worst, force overtime. But Ben Roethlisberger gambled when he didn’t need to – and lost.

”We’re not going to look back and second-guess anything or anybody,” Roethlisberger said. ”We lost a game and I threw a pick in the end zone at the end of the game to lose it.”

Just as bad Adidas Jake Guentzel Jersey , the Steelers were in control in the fourth quarter and didn’t look comfortable. Happens all the time against the Patriots, especially for Pittsburgh.

– The Seahawks are out of control.

Pete Carroll is one of the NFL’s best coaches; nobody gets his guys to play harder. However, what Carroll has been getting for more than a month will cost Seattle a playoff berth, ending five straight appearances. The Seahawks commit far too many penalties, lose their minds over some flags, and are as undisciplined as any team. It’s a shame, because Russell Wilson has enhanced his game so much, but has little to show for it.

”No, there is nothing to be happy about. That was a really dismal performance by us,” Carroll said after getting hammered by the Rams Uchenna Nwosu Jersey Elite , 42-7.

– The NFC is the place to go in the postseason.

Sure, Patriots-Steelers was entertaining Sunday. Whether it will be so in a month if the teams meet again, who knows?

It’s time to recognize the wide-open NFC is a can’t-miss prospect, from the wild-card round throughout.

The Eagles, despite major injuries, have showed spunk to go with impressive depth. The defense needs to get stingy again, but that offense, even with Nick Foles replacing Carson Wentz, is a challenge for everyone.

Minnesota has a defense to play with anyone, and like Philly Robert Golden Super Bowl LI Jersey , terrific coaching. The Rams have an offense to play with anyone and, like Philly and Minnesota, terrific coaching.

New Orleans hasn’t looked as strong recently, but it has Drew Brees, the most proven NFC QB likely to make these playoffs. For once, the Saints have a running game and an impressive D.

The other NFC South members probably going to the postseason, the Panthers and Falcons, are capable of beating anyone anywhere. Or losing to anyone.

For 2017, you can take the AFC. We’ll revel in the NFC.

– Change must come in Ohio.

The Bengals sure seem to have quit on Marvin Lewis, the second-longest tenured coach with the same team in the league. It’s time for Cincinnati to move on from the coach who is 0-7 in the playoffs and whose team has regressed in all facets.

It’s even worse across the state in Cleveland. In a league where teams commonly leap from the bottom toward the top – the Eagles P.J. Hall Jersey Elite , Rams, Jaguars and Saints this year -the Browns remain bottom feeders. Unless they pull a repeat of 2016 by winning their 15th game after 14 straight defeats, they’ll almost certainly match Detroit’s 0-16 ignominy of 2008.

Who should go? Downtrodden Cleveland fans will sum it up succinctly: ”Everyone.”

– Green Bay should shut down Aaron Rodgers.

The Packers quarterback is one of the best ever, headed for Canton. Watching him at Carolina on Sunday was almost as painful as the shots he was taking and the looks on his face after them. Yes, Rodgers is a courageous performer and leader, but with the Pack headed home on New Year’s Day (barring some major collapses throughout the NFC), let him fully heal for 2018.

– Jimmy Garoppolo is the real deal.

Hey, Niners, sign the guy this week to a long-term deal. He’ll be worth it.

EDEN PRAIRIE Sylvester Williams Jersey Elite , Minn. (AP) The Minnesota Vikings are going to be short-handed on offense heading into an important home game against the rival Green Bay Packers on Sunday.

Quarterback Sam Bradford, receiver Stefon Diggs and left guard Nick Easton were all ruled out by head coach Mike Zimmer on Friday after not practicing during the week. For a team that has already lost promising rookie running back Dalvin Cook for the season with a torn ACL, the uncertainty only increases.

Bradford aggravated a left knee injury in Monday’s win over Chicago that has plagued him since the season opener. He started the game, but looked uncomfortable for most of his time on the field before being replaced by Case Keenum late in the second quarter. His timetable to return to the practice field is unclear.

Article continues below ...

”I haven’t had him running sprints Adidas Derick Brassard Jersey ,” Zimmer said, ”but he’s been around.”

Keenum will get his fourth start of the year for the Vikings (3-2). But for the first time he’ll be without Diggs, who was leading the league in receiving yards before tweaking his groin against the Bears. It is the second consecutive year Diggs has battled a groin injury.

”He’s a good player,” Zimmer said Harrison Phillips Super Bowl LI Jersey , ”but Michael Floyd will get some reps. (Laquon) Treadwell, same deal.”

Treadwell has just five receptions through the season’s first five games, while Floyd made one catch in his season debut Monday after serving a four-game suspension.

Easton, who departed Monday’s game with a calf injury Wholesale Kolton Miller Jersey , will likely be replaced by Jeremiah Sirles, who started 10 games for the Vikings last year, though most were at right tackle. Easton will become the first Minnesota offensive lineman to miss a start this season.

On the other side of the ball, the Vikings got safety Andrew Sendejo back at practice Friday after he was held out Wednesday and Thursday with a groin injury. Sendejo is listed as questionable for the game against the Packers (4-1).
