Clay Matthews needs surgery for broken nose at softball game

Packers linebacker Clay Matthews is probably wishing he had worn his helmet at a charity softball game today.

Jackson committed to donate $100 to the Hue Jackson Foundation for every person who jumped in with him. His foundation combats human trafficking in Northeast Ohio.

Owners Dee and Jimmy Haslam offered to match Jackson’s contribution, raising $30,000 after some 150 members of the organization jumped in with Jackson, according to Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal.

Those people have been with me every day, Jackson said, via Ulrich. When you lose a game and you lose as many games as we have and you keep parking your car and walking into the building and have to see those faces each and every day, I carry them with me. I carry them and their families and this city with me contrary to what anybody believes. It’s on me. I wear it every day. So I just thank them for being a part of this because they didn’t have to do this. They didn’t have to come here and support this. I made the statement, and they said, ‘No, I want to do this,’ and I’m thankful.

Jackson’s foundation is selling Lake Jump T-shirts, with all proceeds from the sales of the $29 shirts going to the foundation.

My interest reached new heights two years ago when: (1) the Penquins were marching toward their fourth Stanley Cup in franchise history; and (2) the PFT barn had four TV screens and plenty of available liquor and cigars to support the enjoyment of televised sports. So hockey it was, and hockey it has been, whenever there has been no football to enjoy.

Last year, it continued when the Penguins chased, and caught, Stanley Cup No. 5. This year, I thought I’d lose my hockey jones once the Pens were eliminated. Instead, I got even more interested.

So hockey is a more-than-adequate replacement for football. And with the ongoing Stanley Cup Final hopefully in the early stages of a potential seven-game classic (the series is tied at one), I strongly encourage you to tune in to NBCSN on Saturday night for Game Three, as the Washington Capitals host the Vegas Golden Knights.

Don’t expect Yankees’ Justus Sheffield to get Jordan Montgomery’s spot soon

Yankees starting pitcher Jordan Montgomery ‘s upcoming Tommy John surgery puts pressure on general manager Brian Cashman.
Men's Arizona Coyotes #2 Luke Schenn Reebok Black Third Premier NHL Jersey
Domingo German has turned in mediocre results in Montgomery’s rotation spot. If German doesn’t prove he’s the man for the job, Cashman may have to trade for starting pitching help.

Actually, Cashman http://www.packersofficialfootballshop.com/Super-Bowl-Bart-Starr-Jersey might do Bart Starr Womens Jersey it regardless, considering it was a stated goal of his in the offseason and during spring training.

Either way, don’t expect to see the Yankees drop top pitching prospect Justus Sheffield into their rotation any time soon.

MLB.com and Baseball America each rank Sheffield, a 22-year-old lefty, the Yankees’ best pitching prospect. The Yankees Chad Williams Jersey acquired him, along with highly touted outfielder Clint Frazier, in a package of prospects in exchange for elite reliever Andrew Miller in 2016.

Bradford dealt with a knee injury in 2017, so nobody will fault for Arizona for playing it safe.

The Cardinals ‘ approach with Bradford, however, will change once the three-day minicamp kicks off on June 12-14.

[It’d be] more of a team setting, really trying to give him different looks from a blitz standpoint, also two-minute [offense], coach Steve Wilks said Tuesday, via the Cardinals’ official website. Today was a good day in terms of an operational day for us, and he didn’t get any of that work. Next week, those are some of the things we are trying to get him in the mix.

Arizona used a first-round pick on Josh Rosen during April’s draft and Rosen has impressed during the early stages of OTAs.

But Bradford currently projects as the starter. By holding back Bradford during OTAs, the quarterback was able to rest and the Cardinals are happy where he is physically and mentally ahead http://www.cardinalsofficialauthenticonline.com/cardinals+chad+williams+jersey of minicamp.

Bryce Harper has his mind on bringing another piece of hardware to Washington by the end of the year.

I think a World Series trophy would be pretty cool, too, the Nationals outfielder said.

Harper hit his National League-leading 19th homer of the season in the Nationals’ 7-5 victory. Harper’s 437-foot blast to right-center came off reliever Ty Blach in the fourth inning.

I felt the same; I just didn’t have my best stuff, said Rodriguez, whose father was in attendance. I just went out there and couldn’t really locate pitches.

Giants catcher Nick Hundley hit a three-run homer into the San Francisco bullpen off Washington starter Gio Gonzalez in the third.

It was just the eighth time in 389 starts that Hernandez went three or Authentic Christopher Tanev Jersey fewer innings. … Seattle went 0 for 11 with runners in scoring position.

Mariners: 2B Dee Gordon, who was on the disabled list from Jackie Robinson Jersey May 22-31 with a fractured toe, got most http://www.authenticdodgersstore.com/Authentic-Jackie-Robinson-Jersey of the game off before entering as a defensive http://www.officialvancouvercanucks.com/Adidas-Christopher-Tanev-Jersey replacement in the eighth. The guy runs 23 1/2 miles an hour and then wears a boot out of here every night, Servais said. … RHP Hisashi Iwakuma (shoulder surgery) is throwing to hitters.

Rays: RHP Chris Archer (left abdominal strain) had a 22-pitch bullpen session and could return after a simulated game Tuesday. Everything felt fine, Archer said.

Mariners: LHP James Paxton (5-1, 2.95 ERA), who’s unbeaten since the start of May, will start Sunday.

Bills’ White: Allen ‘going to break a lot of guys’ fingers’

Josh Allen has been tucked away with the third-stringers in Buffalo, but he hasn’t gone unnoticed by at least one Bills starter.
Men's Adidas Buffalo Sabres #30 Ryan Miller Authentic Green Salute to Service NHL Jersey
Allen has shown that throwing power, but his results, understandably, have been up-and-down during team OTAs, mixing saucy completions with the occasional ugly interception,per The Buffalo News.

Drew Hutchison Jersey Allen split opinions in the lead up to the draft. His raw power and 6-foot-5, 222-pound frame had legions of scouts hot-and-bothered, but his 56.3 completion percentage at Wyoming had others freaked.

You can just see what the game of football means to these kids, and it kind of puts things in perspective for us,Rutgers fifth-year senior offensive lineman Zack Heeman said. Especially during the tough times of summer (conditioning), it kind of gives us that extra push.

Womens Antonio Garcia Jersey Grant currently sits behind Fournette and T.J. Yeldon in the running back corps. The speedy 26-year-old Grant could cut into Yeldon’s pass-catching snaps behind Fournette.

I thought Corey once again, he’s a guy that stepped in [last John Elway Youth jersey season] and did a great job there at the end and he’s just a guy we’ve got to get out there, offensive coordinator Nathaniel Hackett said, via Mike Kaye of First Coast News. There’s all these guys we’re talking about and it’s a long ways away from that first game to see what we’re going to get but I’d love to put him out there because he’s a major change-of-pace back.

Grant impressed in the Jags’ AFC Championship Game loss to the New England Patriots. Hackett utilized the back’s speed in space versus an undermanned Pats linebacking corps in the first half. Grant earned three catches going for 20 yards, 24 yards and 15 yards on three targets. The back ended the game as the team’s second-leading receiver that day (59 yards). Whether the Patriots adjusted or Hackett went away from Grant, the shifty back didn’t earn a second-half catch as the Jags lost the lead.

The Dolphins’ investment goes beyond a first-round choice. Fitzpatrick signed a $16.44 million, four-year deal last week.

But he said he didn’t celebrate the contract, and doesn’t have any plans for the money besides buying a place to live.

Anytime you see your hard work paying off, it’s a good feeling, he said. But you’ve got to keep telling yourself it’s not the end goal. I didn’t come here just to be a first-round pick. I wanted to be a great player here and establish a great legacy.

Fitzpatrick said the Dolphins are dividing his practice time evenly among the strong safety, free safety and nickel back positions. He said he doesn’t have a preference and is happy to move around.

At Alabama, Fitzpatrick had a school-record four interception returns for touchdowns. He’s confident about quickly improving his professional pick total.

That’s going to keep going up, Fitzpatrick said. As I get more and more comfortable, I’ll make more and more plays.

Clad in a T-shirt and shorts, Jackson jogged into the surf holding his wife Michelle’s hand before submerging himself. He popped up, pulled up his sagging swim trunks — but not before his backside was exposed — and then splashed along with owner Dee Haslam and more than 150 team employees who turned out to support him and raise money for his charity.

No more freakin’ losing, Jackson hollered. Let’s go!

Jackson’s plunge had been in the works for months. After the Browns went 1-15 in his first season, Jackson vowed that if the team finished that poorly again, he would jump into one of the Great Lakes. And when Cleveland staggered to a 0-16 record last season, becoming only the second team in NFL history to lose all 16 games, Jackson had no choice but to stick to his words.

This is not something I do every day, but I made a statement, and I have to back it up, Jackson said. I came here two years ago to win, and I’m going to win here. I truly believe that. But I think when you make statements, you’ve got to stand by them.

Polls show public divided on anthem issue

The NFL wanted to find a way to put the national anthem controversy behind it, but polls indicate that’s impossible, as the public is sharply divided, with large numbers of Americans likely to oppose any policy the NFL could implement.

If it happens again, it’s not going to be like I have to have surgery again, Enunwa said. It’s going to be gradual just like this was. This happened three years ago and gradually got worse. I got hurt against the Titans in my second year, . . . and it got progressively worse.

Enunwa said doctors told him the problem wasn’t life- or career-threatening, and he was surprised that his recovery included just months of rest.

It was easy. There was no rehab, Enunwa said. I had the surgery. I had a brace for a little bit. I didn’t have the brace for long. I had to sleep a certain way for a few days. After that, it was nothing. I wasn’t allowed to run [in the beginning]. Otherwise, there was no rehab. Everything I did was for my legs, so when I got back I could run.

Now he’s back to work in OTAs for the Jets, and wants to be a difference-maker for his team.

Blue Jays’ J.A. Happ, proud of productive career, has fond memories of Phillies

When Toronto Blue Jay pitcher J.A. Happ arrived in Philadelphia for a weekend series with the Phillies he drove past Citizens Bank Park and his former residence in the city.
Youth Clyde Drexler Swingman Black Nike Jersey: NBA Houston Rockets #22 Statement Edition
As he sat in the dugout during Friday night’s home opener, Happ looked up at the boisterous crowd cheering on a Phillies’ comeback that eventually ended in a 6-5 Toronto win. The Phillies are in first place this late in the season for the first time since their last playoff appearance in 2011.

Happ was on two World Series rosters with the Phillies. Told that it had been 10 years since he earned his World Series ring and rode in a parade down Broad Street, Happ said it didn’t feel like it.

Youth Luc Snuggerud Jersey It’s crazy, said Happ, shaking his head. It seems like yesterday, I can recall every little bit. That’s what I mean by those being the best memories I ever had. I hold those tight.

McClain, who was originally selected in the third round of the 2011 NFL Draft by the Panthers, has registered 75 tackles and 7.5 sacks in his seven-year career. He has also spent Jimmy Vesey Womens Jersey time with the Cowboys, Texans and Patriots.

He is standing in front of a fortress-like wall in what the war correspondents of that day referred to as somewhere in France. To a set of eyes riveted in a new millennium, the uniform he wears appears to be on leave from another world.

The boots are high and polished, the trousers tucked inside. The high-collared fatigue jacket is buttoned from waist to throat and tightly sculpted to his torso. Tilted ever so slightly on his head is the high-crowned, broad-brimmed campaign hat.

NFL forces fans, others to pick sides More The NFL punted. The league’s owners and commissioner Roger Goodell had a chance to stand up for what is right. Instead, they caved and capitulated with a new stance regarding professional football players and the national anthem. Rather than allow its players to protest in a peaceful manner during the national anthem, the NFL has instead forced its players into simulated patriotism to avoid a fine or stay out of the spotlight to save the league the headache.
