Walton said his god-sister was injured in the shooting but is recovering at home now.

Kids Dexter McCoil Jersey
I call her my god-sister, Walton said. She has bullet fragments in her leg. Obviously, in the South Bay, there’s the school teacher that got shot, someone who worked in the police force over there. There’s all sorts of stories you hear, that you either know them or you know people who do know them. So it touched everybody.
Game Kids Steven Stamkos Jersey
The Lakers got into Las Vegas on Saturday, and Walton said he had never seen the city like it was this weekend. He praised the city for taking pride in rallying around one another.

The resignation continued until it didn’t. The Nationals went out Saturday night, getting a lead, giving it back and losing without much resistance — until scoring five exciting, improbable runs in the eighth and stealing Game 2, 6-3.

Such is life in the crucible of managing; everybody spilling nacho sauce on their shirts thinks they can do the job — but these days it carries with it one important exception: The Nationals front office seems to think the same way as its fans. Each twist of the series carries with it the added knowledge that Baker has no contract for the 2018 season, the implicit message being his future is being evaluated not by his stabilizing the organization and winning for the last two years, but by what the Nationals do in the playoffs.

Derek Jeter begins shaping Marlins front office, hires former mentor Gary Denbo

Mike Mitchell Mens Jersey
Miami Marlins CEO Derek Jeter has begun restructuring his front office by hiring a former mentor, Gary Denbo, as vice president of scouting and player development.

Denbo will oversee player development and amateur scouting. He spent the past eight seasons with the New York Yankees, including the past three as vice president of player development, overseeing a farm system that ranks among the best in baseball.

Jeter was a minor leaguer in the early 1990s when he first met Denbo, who was a coach in the Yankees’ minor league system. Denbo has had many jobs with the Yankees and also worked for the Cleveland Indians and Toronto Blue Jays.

Last week, Jeter’s group closed on its purchase of the Marlins, who announced the hiring Tuesday.

Aaron Gordon leads an intriguing collective of fours, particularly since his lack of 3-point production goes essentially unpunished in this scoring system.

I’m optimistic on Derrick Favors. If he can even approximate his production from two seasons ago, there is a ton of profit potential in his profile.

This tier is also dually deep at point guard and center. I think the Tier 7 point guards come with decidedly lower floors than this group, as even the rookies in this section should enjoy the keys to their respective offenses right away.

This likely reads as too low on Jamal Murray, but I think his value as a potential volume shooter with intriguing assist potential doesn’t translate well in points leagues, given he’s unlikely to enjoy any sizable surges in rebounding or defensive metrics.

My favorite value from this tier is Nikola Mirotic, a player who could feast as the rudderless roster supplies him with bountiful opportunity rates.

Raiders coach Jack Del Rio said Derek Carr expected to play next week

Derek Carr, who sat out Sunday’s 30-17 loss to the Baltimore Ravens for the Oakland Raiders’ third straight loss, will play next week against the Los Angeles Chargers.

Authentic Youth George Blanda Jersey Raiders coach Jack Del Rio was asked if he had a feel about Carr being ready to play next week, adding Yeah, I have that feel.

Carr, who suffered a transverse process fracture at Denver, was among the seven Raiders players inactive against the Ravens, even as he was a team captain for the opening coin flip.

Youth Skal Labissiere Jersey Raiders Pro Bowl left tackle Donald Penn got into a verbal altercation with fans as he exited the Oakland Coliseum parking lot following his team’s loss to the Ravens on Sunday.

The Green Wave (3-2, 1-1 American Athletic) scored on all seven first-half possessions, including TDs set up by an interception and fumble recovery. Tulane outgained the Golden Hurricane 435-128 total yards by halftime.

Hilliard had 19 carries and scored on runs of 1, 23, 17, and 43 yards. Banks hit Terren Encalade on a 62-yard scoring pass, ran 13 yards for a second-quarter score, and gained 93 yards on 10 carries.

Tulane had 653 total yards with 488 rushing, including TD runs of 2 yards by Stephon Huderson and 8 yards by Darius Bradwell. Banks was 9 of 13 for 165 yards passing.

Luke Skipper was 10 of 14 for 256 yards passing for Tulsa (1-5, 0-2), hitting Justin Hobbs on a 59-yard scoring strike, and scoring on a 1-yard keeper. Shamari Brooks scored on 13- and 12-yard runs and gained 104 yards on 12 carries.

I think both sides got to walk away with an understanding of how each other felt, McCourty later said.

It was clear to several, but not all, owners that there was a divide between race, age, class and social stature with the players, and it would be incumbent on owners to try to transcend it, whether they wanted to or not. Smith got a briefing on the players’ meeting with the owners on Wednesday morning as he drove to Cincinnati for a locker room session with the Bengals. He was frustrated. The crisis has been mentally exhausting for some players, taking a toll on their ability to perform their jobs.

Panthers director of communications Steven Drummond said in a statement that he spoke with Newton and Rodrigue and I know they had a conversation where he expressed regret for using those words. We strive as a department to make the environment for media comfortable for everyone covering the team.

Rodrigue said in a statement that Newton did not apologize.

Authentic Womens Kevin Bieksa Jersey This afternoon, I did my job as an NFL beat writer and asked Cam Newton a question about one of his receivers. I was dismayed by his response, which not only belittled me but countless other women before me and beside me who work in similar jobs, Rodrigue said. I sought Mr. Newton out as he left the locker room a few minutes later. He did not apologize for his comments.

According to a Charlotte Observer report, Rodrigue asked Newton afterward whether he thought a woman couldn’t understand receiver routes.

Newton said she wasn’t really seeing specific routes when watching the game, she was just seeing if somebody was open, the Observer reported. She argued that he didn’t know what she saw nor how hard she had studied football, and that maybe the two of them needed to have a deeper conversation.

Dolphins LB Lawrence Timmons AWOL, not expected to play against Chargers

Game Kids Le’Raven Clark Jersey Dolphins linebacker Lawrence Timmons reportedly won’t play against the Chargers today after several mysterious reports surfaced Sunday morning.

Fox Sports’ Jay Glazer reported Sunday that Timmons went AWOL yesterday and team been trying to find him, was found today and team trying to get more info.

While Timmons has reportedly been found, the Miami Herald’s Armando Salguero reports he is not expected to play against the Chargers. Salguero tweeted, Something angered him. He’s not with team. Dolphins know where he is.

Salguero added that Timmons had not been arrested or run afoul of law.

After spending the first 10 seasons of his career with the Steelers, Timmons, 31, signed a two-year, $12-million contract to join the Dolphins this season.

Tom Brady, QB, New England Patriots: His heroics led his team to a stunning 36-33 victory, with his 35.72 fantasy points good for the fourth-best total in any of his 239 career NFL games. Started in 94.2 percent of ESPN leagues, Brady now has 77.2 fantasy points through three games this season, his third most through three team games of any season behind only 2011’s 88.18 (he finished with 366.30) and 2015’s 78.58 (he finished with 344.70). Reminder: Brady is 40 years old, and he’s already 27.2 percent of the way to Brett Favre’s all-time record of 283.58 fantasy points (2009) in a player’s age-40 season or older. Brady is on pace for 411.63 fantasy points.

Game Kids Datone Jones Jersey Jordan Howard, RB, Chicago Bears: So much for sweating over Tarik Cohen’s emergence. Howard, who scored the winning touchdown in overtime, finished with a career-best 31.4 PPR fantasy points, and his 26.4 non-PPR fantasy points were his second-best total behind only his 29.7 of 2016 Week 13.

There weren’t a whole lot of Bengals highlights in this one.

No Patriot had ever run for four touchdowns in the first two games of the season, let alone his New England career. Gillislee did that in six quarters. New England may miss LeGarrette Blount’s 250-pound frame on fourth-and-1 situations, but the former Bill is doing an admirable job of replacing him at the goal line.

ANd it was apparent when he talked to the press, telling reporters I didn’t sign up for nine snaps. He won’t be happy with Sunday’s performance either. The future Hall of Famer gained only 26 yards on eight carries as his team lost its second straight.

Clowney took the ball down to the 20-yard line, and the Texans soon got their first points of the game with a field goal.

Unfortunately for Ross, he wasn’t able to get a second chance at glory like Kareem Hunt did last week.

If there was going to be one though, you had to figure it was going to come from A.J. Green.

Jared Veldheer Authentic Jersey But you may not have expected three Texans to be on him while making a leaping catch:

The Falcons were less than sharp in their season opener, but they did enough to eke out a 23-17 win over the Chicago Bears on the road. Matt Ryan, coming off an MVP campaign, threw for 321 yards and a touchdown in the victory. The big highlight was tight end Austin Hooper laying down a mean stiff-arm during an 88-yard touchdown catch.

The Packers are coming off a gritty 17-9 win over the Seattle Seahawks. Aaron Rodgers got all he could handle against the Legion of Boom, but the Packers’ defense stepped up to shut down Russell Wilson and Seattle’s running game. That defense will have another tough test against the Falcons, who smoked them for 493 total net yards in the 44-21 NFC Championship loss.

It should be an electric atmosphere in the Falcons’ new home, with two teams looking to build off 1-0 starts and get back into the postseason. It would not be surprising at all if they meet in January once again.

Colts reportedly name Jacoby Brissett Week 2 starter against Cardinals

After a disastrous showing in Week 1 against the Rams in which the Colts lost 46-9, Jacoby Brissett has been named the starter for Week 2 against the Cardinals, according to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport.

The decision isn’t official, however. Head coach Chuck Pagano declined to say whether Brissett or Scott Tolzien would start against the Cardinals this week, according to the team’s official website. But starting Brissett makes sense.

Why did the Colts do this? Scott Tolzien had a nightmare of a game in Week 1. Tolzien threw two pick-sixes, and nearly a third had it not been for Donte Moncrief committing a facemask that prevented Tolzien from tying the NFL record for a single game. Tolzien finished the game 9-of-18 with 128 yards and two interceptions. He was also sacked four times.

For a while it felt like the Eagles were going to make a statement. They were going to beat the Chiefs, who were riding high after blowing out the Patriots. It didn’t even matter that Carson Wentz threw a terrible pass, because it landed in Zach Ertz’s hands.

The Eagles lost in Kansas City, but that was an away game. Surely it couldn’t apply to home, right? The Phillies hosted the A’s and in the top of the sixth Joey Wendle blasted a grand slam to put the visitors up 6-3.

Not you too, Flyers! Sure, it was only NHL preseason — but not like this, not like this. Much like their fellow Philly sports teams, the Flyers gave up a late lead and ended up losing in overtime.

I’m sorry Philly, but even you have to be able to laugh at what a tragic eight minutes this was. It’s okay, because a hero is waiting in the wings …nike_redskins_1599-223x223

The Bears have lost nine in a row on the road, going 2-7 ATS during that stretch.

Tampa Bay outgained the Bears by only one yard, 311-310, but Chicago turned it over four times, including two interceptions by Mike Glennon. Tampa Bay’s Jameis Winston threw a 13-yard touchdown pass to Mike Evans, and Robert McClain returned an interception 47 yards for a touchdown for the Buccaneers.

Another week, another blunder in the fourth quarter for the Chargers. Los Angeles led 17-10 in the third quarter before giving up three consecutive field goals, the last of which came with 1:05 left in the game. Philip Rivers drove the Chargers down the field, only to see kicker Younghoe Koo miss his second FG of the game.

Moss, appearing on 106.7 The Fan, said the perception was that Griffin appeared happy over Shanahan’s ouster after the 2013 season.

When the whole thing went about, we hear that Mike Shanahan’s not coming back the next year, then we hear the quarterback like, ‘Hey. Mm-hmm,’ Moss told The Fan. Like, basically saying that, ‘Hey, you got me out of here not playing last year, the last few games, then that’s what happens. You get fired.’

By that point of their relationship, it was clear an issue existed between the Shanahans — Mike and his son, then-offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan — and Griffin. It simmered beneath the surface after Griffin’s rookie season, which ended with him tearing his ACL in a playoff loss to the Seattle Seahawks.
Limited Youth Brooks Orpik USA Jersey
Game Mens Kyle Van Noy Jersey But the extent of the problems weren’t fully divulged until late in Griffin’s second season, at which point it became clear that Mike Shanahan would not return for a fifth year. He was fired after a 3-13 mark in 2013 with one year left on his contract. He benched Griffin in favor of Kirk Cousins for the final three games.

So 2014 comes, and Jay Gruden comes in, and he don’t care, Moss told the station. We see that now. He doesn’t care. He don’t care what he says about you, he doesn’t care what he says at you.

The initial six-game suspension stemmed from a domestic violence allegation by Elliott’s former girlfriend in July of 2016.

Authentic Mens Chris Tierney Jersey
The only just decision was to overturn the suspension in its entirety. Mr. Elliott is looking forward to having his day in federal court where the playing field will be level and the NFL will have to answer for its unfair and unjust practices.

Elliott was never charged by police and the NFL’s lead investigator Kia Roberts reportedly was silenced for recommending no suspension. NFL commissioner Roger Goodell reportedly ignored Roberts’ recommendation and instead handed out the six-game ban, writing on Aug. 11 there was persuasive evidence supporting Tiffany Thompson’s allegations of domestic abuse.

The tents made their NFL debut in the 2017 Hall of Fame Game between the Arizona Cardinals and Dallas Cowboys.

Authentic Mens JC Tretter Jersey The NFL officially adopted the practice back in May at the league’s spring meetings.

It’s an opportunity for us to have a better examination because it will ensure privacy for a short period of time, so doctors can go ahead and make the appropriate diagnosis, commissioner Roger Goodell said in May.

While these tents won’t solve the league’s concussion crisis, they will aid doctors and staffers while providing players with the dignity of an evaluation away from prying eyes. Early diagnosis is a major factor in preventing the future injuries that can derail careers and lives. An environment that provides fewer distractions and more latitude for on-the-spot evaluations is a step in the right direction — albeit a small one.

Ben Roethlisberger now uses pump fake as tactic instead of indecision

The pump fake is a major weapon in Ben Roethlisberger’s arsenal now, but when he was a young player he often used the maneuver to literally buy time because he didn’t know what to do.

The Steelers quarterback told Sports Illustrated when he was a younger, he often pump faked because he didn’t know where to go with the ball. He used the pump fake to buy time.

As one Twitter commenter put it quite well, defenses often had trouble figuring out what Roethlisberger was doing with the ball because he often didn’t know what he was going to do himself.

It just goes to show that even the best quarterbacks in the league have needed to develop into Pro Bowl players. In Roethlisberger’s development he learned how to use the pump fake as effectively as any QB in the league. It just took him a while to get to that point.

“Hosting the game is important to us, as Tampa Bay has been through a lot over the past few days,” Bucs chief operating officer Brian Ford said in a statement. “We look forward to providing our fans and the entire region an opportunity to come together this Sunday to kick off our 2017 season.”

Bucs players are starting to trickle back into town now that Tampa International Airport has reopened on a limited basis. Some players and coaches evacuated with the team to Charlotte, North Carolina, on Saturday; others left earlier in the week with their families for other states or rode out the storm.
