TORONTO -- The Seattle Sounders and Toronto FC have players who stand out, players who are considered vital to their teams success. Calvin Munson Jersey .Toronto FC has its big three of Sebastian Giovinco, Jozy Altidore and Michael Bradley. The Sounders have the likes of Nicolas Lodeiro, Roman Torres, Osvaldo Alonso and rookie sensation Jordan Morris.Each is expected to play a prominent role as the teams compete for the MLS Cup Saturday night at BMO Field.There obviously is much more to both teams and because of that Toronto FC and the Sounders will be playing for the MLS Cup Saturday night at BMO Field.It would be the first MLS Cup win for either TFC, which entered the league in 2007, or Seattle, which joined in 2009.Both sides emphasized the team aspect Thursday during a media conference at TFCs training facility in suburban TorontoSounders coach Brian Schmetzer said he looks beyond Torontos three stars when assessing the Eastern Conference champions.They obviously have their big three, Schmetzer said. But theyre more than just the big three. You look at that team, I think Drew Moors inclusion, Will Johnson, those types of players have helped them in key moments.The same with his own team. Lodeiro joining the team during the season was a big move and the return of Torres from knee surgery also was a big factor.Its just not them, he said. I think the compliment I give to (TFC) would be, theyre a team. Thats why I think that this matchup is a good one on many different layers because were a team as well. This should be a really entertaining match between two teams that believe they can win, they have stars and they have the everyday guys that put in their work.The Sounders showed that team effort when they were able to succeed even with U.S. international Clint Dempsey being sidelined since August with an irregular heartbeat.Altidore was asked why he seems to talk about the team more than himself in interviews.The U.S. international forward has been a hot scorer for Toronto with 15 goals in his past 20 games, including a record of scoring goals in five straight postseason games.I just feel like what you can accomplish as a group is far greater than what you can accomplish by yourself, he said. And we look to a game like Saturday, individual performances dont really mean anything if we collectively dont put it together as a team.Toronto FC coach Greg Vanney said his team concentrates on what it wants to accomplish, while making adjustments to its opponents.We believe its about us, Vanney said. We spend every week with our image and vision for how want the game to look like but within that there are nuances of dealing with the opposition, whether its key players, whether theyre a transition team or a possession-oriented team. Well make little adjustments to make the game the way we want it look like. ... But the emphasis is really on ourselves. We believe that we have the group that if we play the way we want to play games (other teams) will have to adjust to us. At the same time we try to organize it in way that we understand what the opposition is trying to do.Torres did not rejoin the Sounders until August because of his knee injury. The center back with partner Chad Marshall will be trying to negate big, strong Altidore and the clever, elusive Giovinco.Everything has to do with concentration, Torres said. You have to be very concentrated because we cant just focus on one player. They have 11 players -- Giovinco, (Armando) Cooper, Bradley -- and they all can play. We have to all be concentrated and attentive to our assignments. ...Its going to be a tight game. Thats what I see. A tight game in which both teams are going to try and commit the least amount of mistakes. Then, we have to finish the chances that we have. Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie Jersey .Y. -- Sabres forward Drew Stafford has witnessed plenty of turmoil during his eight seasons in Buffalo. Kerry Wynn Jersey . Anthony Davis had 31 points and 17 rebounds in his seventh straight game with more than 20 points, but that was only enough to keep the Pelicans competitive into the final minutes. Andrew Bogut had 10 points and 15 rebounds for Golden State, which rebounded from a loss a night earlier in Oklahoma City and snapped a two-game skid. http://www.cheapnewyorkgiantsjerseysauthentic.com/?tag=authentic-odell-beckham-jr-jersey . Speaking to the Chicago Tribune at baseballs Winter Meetings in Lake Buena Vista, Florida, Boras called the former home of the Expos a "tremendous environment" for baseball. DETROIT -- Overconfidence should not be an issue for the Detroit Lions this Sunday. While the Chicago Bears have only three wins, one of them came at Detroits expense.The Lions (8-4) own a four-game winning streak and a two-game lead over Green Bay and Minnesota in the NFC North, but they know they cant look past the other team in the division. The Bears posted a 17-14 victory in the first meeting at Soldier Field on Oct. 2.Detroit, however, will have the home-field advantage the second time around.Chicagos got our full attention, Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford said. Obviously, they beat us at their place the last time we played them and they beat us pretty handily, so weve got our work cut out for us.Stafford and the Lions offense were unable to produce an offensive touchdown in that game. He threw two interceptions and the only touchdown Detroit scored came on Andre Roberts 85-yard punt return with less than two minutes remaining.They just handled us, to be honest with you, Lions coach Jim Caldwell said. They played us tough in every phase of the game. They ran to the ball, they hit us hard, and we were not as effective as were capable. Some of it had to do with them.That loss dropped to the Lions to 1/3 and few people would have anticipated they would be in control of the division for the second meeting. Detroit recorded its first seven wins with fourth-quarter comebacks.The Lions finally took care of business earlier last Sunday, keeping the potent New Orleans Saints attack under wraps in a 28-13 road victory.Stafford doesnt think the loss to the Bears was a wakeup call for the team.I dont know if we needed one. At that point, that was our third in a row, he said. If the first two didnt wake you up, I dont know whats wrong with you. Weve just played better football since then. In that game, we turned the ball over twice. Those were huge turnovers and cost us points. Since then, weve done a nice job of avoiding that and thats been a big turnaround for us.The Lions are banged up on offense. Wide receiver Marvin Jones returned to practice on a limited basis on Wednesday after missing the Saints game with a quad issue. Running back Theo Riddick is nursing wrist and ankle iinjuries, and center Travis Swanson is in the leagues concussion protocol and wont play Sunday. Orleans Darkwa Jersey. Defensive end Ziggy Ansah is a question mark because of knee and ankle injuries.Chicago (3-9) has been one of the leagues most injury-riddled teams this season. The Bears defeated San Francisco, 26-6, on Sunday behind a stout defense and a workhorse performance from rookie running back Jordan Howard.He rushed for 117 yards on 32 carries and scored three touchdowns in snowy conditions. Howard, who emerged after season-opening starter Jeremy Langford was injured, gained 111 yards in 23 carries against the Lions.At the start of the season, Im not sure people even knew his number, coach John Fox said. One thing about injuries that does happen, they give guys opportunities. Obviously, hes young, being a rookie, but his humility and kind of how hes maintained being the same guy has been big, too. It says a lot about him, aside from all the abilities.Quarterback Matt Barkley wasnt supposed to start any games for the Bears this season but injuries to Jay Cutler and Brian Hoyer -- who passed for 302 yards and two touchdowns in the first meeting -- have thrust the 26 year old into that role. Barkley only attempted 18 passes against the 49ers in the inclement weather, and completed 11 for 192 yards. But he didnt throw any interceptions after getting picked off twice in each of his first appearances this season.I dont think hes lacking confidence, Fox said. I think thats evident in his style of play and kind of how he handles things. I would imagine hes a little more confident now than he was prior to his first two starts.Cutler wont be coming back, as he was placed on injured reserve on Monday. Barkley is working with a depleted receiving corps.Top wideout Alshon Jeffery is finishing up his four-game suspension for taking a banned substance. Eddie Royal missed the 49ers game with a toe injury and wont play Sunday. Marquess Wilsons status is questionable because of a groin injury.The Bears will be looking to sweep the Lions for the first time since 2012. Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys AuthenticWholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '

Saskatchewan Roughriders quarterback Darian Durant updated his injury situation with a Tweet on Saturday night. Ian Desmond Jersey . "X-Rays came back negative! Now we gotta rehab this thing to get right for next week!" said Durant on his Twitter account. Durant limped out of the Riders dressing room holding a bag of ice after Thursdays victory in Toronto against the Argonauts. He was not walking with crutches or a boot. Riders medical staff were working on his right foot during the game, and Durant wasnt specific after the game about what the injury was. He only said that his right foot would be evaluated when the team returned to Regina. Durants superb play so far has the Roughriders off to the leagues only 3-0 start. He is 54-for-75 in passing for 674 yards and eight touchdowns and has a passer rating of 135.1.

Arsenal were top of the Premier League table in January and in the Champions League and FA Cup, but a poor run of form saw them eliminated from both cup competitions while they now sit 13 points behind league leaders Leicester.The Gunners face West Brom at the Emirates on Thursday, live on Sky Sports 1 HD from 7pm, and Mertesacker believes Arsenal can win their final five matches if they stick together. A late strike from Yannick Bolasie held Arsenal to a 1-1 draw at the Emirates on Sunday When asked if criticism makes the team keen to prove doubters wrong, the defender told Sky Sports News HQ: Certainly. It has never been different. There have always been rumours and always been criticism, but the group is always strongest when we stick to each other.We went through a difficult period in my time at Arsenal in these years, and we always came back stronger. The one thing we missed out was to be consistent over the season.That is a criticism we have to face and I have no doubt the group will grow, even when everyone expected us to win something this year. I think as long as the team is still hungry, still wants to go for it, thats going to be the key. As long as we keep that, we have the opportunity to get 15 points out of the five games. Then lets see what the outcome is.A 1-1 draw at home to Crystal Palace has left Arsenal in a battle to secure a top-four finish, and Mertesacker, who slammed his teams indiscipline on Tuesday, believes their attacking philosophy has cost them at times this season.

We like to play to keep ourselves in positions where we get into the next attack, but we have to be more cautious about coming back and being behind the ball together.We missed a lot of chances. Weve had a lot of opportunities throughout this season to be in a better position.Those are regrets we do have, but still its very difficult to look back at the minute and think, we were in top spot.

CLEVELAND -- Kris Bryant started to smile even before he fielded the ball. Cheap MLB Jerseys . And with his throw to first for the final out, the agonizing wait `til next year was over at last.No more Billy Goat, no more Bartman, no more black-cat curses.For a legion of fans who waited a lifetime, fly that W: Your Chicago Cubs are World Series champions.Ending more than a century of flops, futility and frustration, the Cubs won their first title since 1908, outlasting the Cleveland Indians 8-7 in 10 innings of a Game 7 thriller early Thursday.They even had to endure an extra-inning rain delay to end the drought.It happened. It happened. Chicago, it happened, first baseman Anthony Rizzo said after gloving the ball for the final out. We did it. Were world champions. I tell ya, were world champions. I cant believe it.Rizzo put that final ball in his pocket as the Cubs piled up in the middle of the diamond, David Ross got carried off the field by his teammates and Bill Murray partied in the clubhouse.And the whole time, blue-clad fans who traveled from Wrigley Field filled nearly the entire lower deck behind the Chicago dugout at Progressive Field, singing Go, Cubs, Go! in rain. They held up those white flags with the large blue W on a night many of their forebears had waited for in vain.Lovable losers for generations, the Cubs nearly let this one get away, too. All-Star closer Aroldis Chapman blew a 6-3 lead with two outs in the eighth when Rajai Davis hit a tying, two-run homer.But the Cubs, after tormenting their fans one more time, came right back after a 17-minute rain delay before the top of the 10th.Series MVP Ben Zobrist hit an RBI double and Miguel Montero singled home a run to make it 8-6. Davis delivered an RBI single with two outs in the bottom half, but Mike Montgomery closed it out at 12:47 a.m., and the celebration was on.I think about so many millions of people giving so much love and support to this team for so many years, said owner Tom Ricketts, whose family bought the team in 2009.Manager Joe Maddons team halted the longest stretch without a title in baseball, becoming the first club to overcome a 3-1 Series deficit since the 1985 Kansas City Royals.This is an epic game. Its epic. I cant believe we were able to do it -- 108 years in the making, Zobrist said. We did it.They never quit, either, Zobrist said. They kept coming at us.Cleveland was trying to win its first crown since 1948, but manager Terry Franconas club lost the last two games at home.World Series favorites since spring training, Chicago led the majors with 103 wins this season.The Cubs then ended more than a century of misery for their loyal fans -- barely. Bryant, one of Chicagos young stars, began to celebrate even before fielding a grounder by Michael Martinez to third base and throwing it across to Rizzo for the last out.Its the best rain delay of all-time, Rizzo said.Zobrist got a Series-high 10 hits, a year after he helped the Royals win the championship. Zobrist was among the players brought to the Cubs by Theo Epstein, the baseball guru who added another crown to his collection. He also assembled the Red Sox team that broke Bostons 86-year drought by winning in 2004.From Curse of the Bambino to the Billy Goat Curse, he ended another jinx.We dont need a plane to fly home, Epstein said. Its fitting its got to be done with one of the best games of all time.Cubs outfielder Jason Heyward had called a meeting during the rain delay, talking to his teammates in the weight room.I just had to remind everybody who we are, what weve overcome to get here, he said.While Cubs fans hugged with delight, there was only despair for the Indians, who now have gone longer than anyone without a crown. In the Indians previous World Series appearance, they were a double-play grounder from winning the 1997 title before losing Game 7 in 11 innings to the Marlins.Its going to hurt. It hurts because we care, but they need to walk with their head held high because they left nothing on the field, Francona said.Earlier this year, LeBron James and the Cavaliers ended Clevelands 52-year championship drought by overcoming a 3-1 deficit to beat Golden State for the NBA title. James and teammates were in a suite, rooting hard, as the Indians absorbed the same blow as the Warriors.After defeating San Francisco and the Los Angeles Dodgers in the playoffs, Chicago became the first team to earn a title by winning Games 6 and 7 on the road since the 1979 Pittsburgh Pirates.Dexter Fowler homered on Corey Klubers fourth pitch of the game, and 23-year-old Javier Baez and the 39-year-old Ross -- set to now retire -- also went deep for the Cubs, who led 5-1 in the fifth inning and 6-3 in the eighth.Chapman wound up with the win, and Montgomery got one out for his first save in the majors.Bryan Shaw, who gave up a leadoff single to Kyle Schwarber in the 10th, took the loss in just the fourth Game 7 that went to extra innings.Albert Almora Jr., pinch-running for Schwarber, alertly took second on Bryants long fly to center. Rizzo was intentionally walked, and Zobrist slapped an opposite-field double past diving third baseman Jose Ramirez. Montero singled to make it a two-run lead.Then in the bottom half, Carl Edwards Jr. struck out Mike Napoli, Ramirez grounded out, Brandon Guyer walked and Davis hit an RBI single. Montgomery took over, and helped set off a wild celebration on Chicagos North Side.Even a dedicated White Sox fan could appreciate the victory.It happened: (at)Cubs win World Series. Thats change even this South Sider can believe in. Want to come to the White House before I leave? President Barack Obama tweeted.Twenty-one other teams had won the World Series since the Cubs last were champions. They reached the top again on the 39,466th day after Orval Overalls three-hit shutout won the 1908 finale at Detroit in a game that took 1 hour, 24 minutes -- this latest Game 7 lasted 4:24, not including the rain delay.Back then, Theodore Roosevelt was president, New Mexico, Arizona, Alaska and Hawaii were not yet states, and the first Ford Model T car was two weeks old.The Cubs were last champions when Joe Tinker, Johnny Evers and Frank Chance won consecutive titles in 1907-08, until now the only ones in team history. The Cubbies had not even reached the Series since 1945.This one was for Ernie Banks, Ferguson Jenkins, Ron Santo and Billy Williams, who never reached the postseason.For Gabby Hartnett, Ryne Sandberg and Greg Maddux, whose October runs fell short.For Lee Elia and the nickle-dime people who spent so many wind-swept afternoons in the Friendly Confines watching loss after loss.For Bill Veeck, who planted ivy vines against Wrigley Fields outfield walls.For William Sianis, the Billy Goat Tavern owner said to have proclaimed when he was asked to leave Wrigley with his pet during the `45 Series: Them Cubs, they aint gonna win no more.For Steve Bartman, whose life was upended when he tried to catch a foul ball as the Cubs came apart in the 2003 playoffs.And for Harry Caray, who promised viewers after the 1991 finale that sure as God made green apples, someday the Chicago Cubs are going to be in the World Series.Maddon, hired before the 2015 season, won his first Series title after establishing a loose clubhouse that featured at times Warren the pink flamingo, Simon the magician and the motto: Try not to suck.It was just an epic battle, Zobrist said. Just blow for blow, everybody playing their heart out. The Indians never gave up, either, and I cant believe were finally standing, after 108 years, finally able to hoist the trophy.PEN PALSThis was the first World Series in which no starting pitcher got at least one out in the seventh inning, according to the Elias Sports Bureau. The only other in which no starter finished at least seven innings was in 2002, when San Franciscos Russ Ortiz threw 6 1/3 innings in Game 6.UP NEXTClevelands spring training opener is scheduled for Feb. 26 against the Cubs in Mesa, Arizona. Jose Cruz Jersey .

The Raptors traded Rudy Gay, Quincy Acy and Aaron Gray to the Sacramento Kings on Monday, in exchange for Greivis Vasquez, John Salmons, Patrick Patterson and Chuck Hayes. Welcome to Week 11! Four teams are on bye again this week in advance of Thanksgiving week, when all teams will see action. The teams on bye this week are the Atlanta Falcons, Denver Broncos, New York Jets and San Diego Chargers. On Thursday night the Saints traveled to the Panthers, so players on those teams have already yielded their fantasy production.Injury concerns regarding players heading into the Sunday and Monday games can be critical. Each Saturday, this entry will be dedicated to each player who appears on the official weekly NFL game status injury report and how his status might impact fantasy teams.For those who might be new to this feature: Injury reports provide some insight into a players status. The NFL requires teams to submit practice injury reports several times a week, identifying the body part that is involved in the injury. This year, there has been a change in the language of injury reporting, per the league office. The most notable change is the removal of the probable designation. For more detailed information on the changes and what they mean, click here.Early in the week, the practice injury reports indicate whether a player did not practice, was limited in practice or was a full participant in practice. On Fridays, all teams file a game status injury report assigning one of the following designations: questionable, doubtful or out. The designations listed here reflect the injury reports filed with the league office Friday evening. Teams playing Monday night do not have to issue their designations until Saturday. The explanation for each designation is as follows:Out: This is the easy one: The guy is not playing this week.Questionable (Q): This remains the most dreaded player designation. By definition it means a player is uncertain to play. How uncertain is uncertain? There is no percentage or measurement scale, so this classification remains rather vague. Whether a player ends up active or inactive often comes down to a game-time decision based on how he feels on game-day morning or how he performs during warm-ups. Final inactives are due 90 minutes before kickoff.Doubtful (D): The doubtful designation means a player is unlikely to play that week. Rarely does a player labeled as doubtful end up playing, unless he experiences a major turnaround before game time.Each week in this Saturday feature, we run down a list of key fantasy players, by position, who appear in the Friday injury report, along with the injured body part as listed on the report, player status and any relevant developments or insight. The primary fantasy positions are covered (quarterback, running back, wide receiver and tight end).This year, at the end of each positional section, there is a subgroup of players: Players off game status injury report. The probable tag no longer exists, so players who would have been listed as probable in previous years are now simply removed from the report. This means there will be players who appear in the practice injury reports during the week but will not appear on the game-status report Friday, since they are presumed active for game day. They are included in this article so that fantasy owners can see where players who were on the practice injury report during the week have been upgraded in advance of the games.At the end, key fantasy players listed Friday as out for the weeks games will appear as a group.QuarterbacksTony Romo, Dallas Cowboys, back, (Q): This week, Romo did a very impressive thing: He publicly endorsed Dak Prescott as the quarterback for the Cowboys. While it was clearly a difficult moment for him, he handled it with class and dignity. Still, his health is very important for the Cowboys should anything happen to their rookie star. To that end, Romo has returned to full practices (starting last week) and is expected to be active and available as the backup quarterback this week against Baltimore. For the first time in recent memory, the Cowboys have two starter-quality quarterbacks, providing welcome insurance at a time when some teams are struggling to find just one.Players Off Game Status Injury Report:Andy Dalton, Cincinnati Bengals, right shoulder: Dalton absorbed a fair amount of punishment in Monday nights game and it left him with soreness in his throwing shoulder. He was limited in Wednesdays practice but returned to full practices Thursday and Friday. His removal from the injury report indicates there is no doubt he will start against the visiting Buffalo Bills Sunday.Andrew Luck, Indianapolis Colts, right shoulder: Luck wasnt on the injury report last week ... because the Colts had a bye. He returns to the report this week for the same reason as past weeks -- his throwing shoulder, which limited him in Thursdays session. Luck was a full participant Friday and his removal from the game status injury report, as usual, confirms he will start when the Colts host the Tennessee Titans on Sunday.Russell Wilson, Seattle Seahawks, knee: On Sunday night in New England, Wilson looked his healthiest since first injuring his ankle at the start of the season. A far more mobile Wilson took care of business against the Patriots, and while the rushing yards arent yet what fantasy owners are hoping for, it appears they could be coming soon. His natural ease of running is becoming more apparent over the past two weeks. Wilson is still listed on the practice injury report because of his knee, but the visual evidence supports coach Pete Carrolls claim that he is nearly back to full health. And, Wilson doesnt even have to travel this week as he gets to face the Philadelphia Eagles at home.Running BacksTodd Gurley, Los Angeles Rams, thigh, (Q): Gurley played last week against the Jets after being listed as questionable with a thigh injury, although the yield in terms of fantasy production remained low, as it has all season. In other words, the injury was not to blame. Some folks have moved off the Gurley must-start wagon (maybe more than some), but with teams still on bye and injuries throughout the league at the running back position, some may still be considering him for this weekend. For those folks, the Q next to his name is not encouraging, especially when he was off the Rams practice injury report until Friday. Its worth noting that soft tissue injuries can flare up -- even to a small degree -- from time to time. When games are separated by just days, proactive limitation of reps can be useful. There is nothing to suggest Gurleys limited practice Friday has him in danger of actually missing Sundays home game against the Miami Dolphins. It is worth noting that this is a late (4:05 p.m. ET) kickoff, so fantasy owners who plan to use Gurley should have an alternate available, just in case.Theo Riddick, Detroit Lions, ankle, (Q): Riddick missed time earlier this season (Weeks 6 and 7 to be exact) with an ankle injury, but he has returned to play in two games since then and has proved to be effective. Coming off the teams bye week, the expectation might have been that he would be completely off the injury report, but that is not the case. Riddick was limited in practice each day and comes into this weeks game with a questionable tag. Its hard to imagine that he is in any real danger of missing this one, but fantasy owners should always be prepared with a backup when a player has a Q next to his name. Thankfully, the Lions kick off at 1:00 p.m. Sunday against the Jacksonville Jaguars.Latavius Murray, Oakland Raiders, ankle, (Q): Murray missed time earlier in the season with a turf toe injury and now appears on the injury report because of his ankle. Although he was listed as a limited practice participant, it may have been largely proactive to preserve him for Monday night. Still, given his questionable designation, fantasy owners should have an alternate plan if he is a surprise inactive.Players Off Game Status Injury Report: Carlos Hyde, San Francisco 49ers, shoulder: Hydes performance in his return from injury last week was underwhelming, perhaps a sign that his shoulder was indeed still bothering him. Hyde managed just 14 yards on 13 carries, but the positive sign perhaps is that he was on the field for the bulk of the teams offensive snaps, more than double the number for teammate DuJuan Harris. Although Hyde remained on the practice injury report this week, he was a full participant each day. His removal from the game status injury report confirms he will play against the visiting New England Patriots in a late (4:25 p.m. ET) game Sunday.Matt Asiata, Minnesota Vikings, shoulder: The three-headed running back squad of the Vikings has seen each of its members on the injury report at some point this season. This week Jerick McKinnon and Ronnie Hillman are not part of that report, but Asiata is. Still, Asiata was a full participant in practice each day, despite being listed with a shoulder injury. His removal from the game status injury report indicates he will play Sunday against the Arizona Cardinals.DeMarco Murray, Tennessee Titans, toe: Murray continues to get a day off during the week (Wednesday) to give his still somewhat-ailing toe a rest. He was back in full practice Thursday and Friday, however, and shows no sign of slowing down on game days, as his removal from the game status injury report confirms. Fantasy owners should be sure to have Derrick Henry on their rosters as insurance nonetheless.Thomas Rawls, Seattle Seahawks, fibula: There is no doubt that Rawls -- out since Week 2 with a fibula fracture -- is slated to make his return to action this weekend. The question rather is how much work he will see. Reports have been all over the map, leading to an inconclusive conclusion. While coach Pete Carroll claims he doesnt have any problem with Rawls playing quite a few plays, he also notes that C.J. Prosise did a very good job last week. This has the feel of Prosise starting, with Rawls getting his first opportunity to show where he is from an in-game standpoint and the Seahawks proceeding based on what they see. Rawls is sure to increase in value over the coming weeks, perhaps as he is able to demonstrate that he is conditioned enough to handle the workload.Lamar Miller, Houston Texans, ankle: Miller was on the injury report this week as he was limited in practice to rest his ankle. Miller is expected to play Monday night without limitation and should see plenty of action with both Alfred Blue and Jonathan Grimes out. Mike Scott Jersey. Wide ReceiversDeSean Jackson, Washington Redskins, shoulder, (Q): Jackson missed Week 10 with a shoulder injury after coming into the weekend with a doubtful tag. His questionable status represents an upgrade, as does Jacksons practice involvement this week. After limited participation Wednesday and Thursday, Jackson increased to full participation Friday. Earlier in the week coach Jay Gruden indicated Jackson would need to be able to play without restriction in order to be available for the game. As of Friday, Jacksons status appeared to be headed toward a game-time decision, despite the uptick in his practice reps. ESPN.coms John Keim reports that the decision on Jacksons Sunday status will not be influenced by the fact the team plays just four days later (Thanksgiving game on the road against the Cowboys). Fantasy owners will want to be sure to have an alternate plan in place or simply choose another option, given that Washington doesnt play until Sunday night against the Green Bay Packers.Dez Bryant, Dallas Cowboys, back, (Q): Last week it was his knee, this week its a back issue that has Bryant on the injury report. He also was listed with a back ailment two weeks ago but played nonetheless. His appearance here does raise an eyebrow this week because he was added to the report only on Friday as a limited participant. ESPN.coms Todd Archer says there is little doubt Bryant will play Sunday given how well he was moving following the workout. Fantasy owners will want to be sure to check pregame inactives, but at this point it appears Bryant is safe for this week.Robert Woods, Buffalo Bills, foot, (Q): Woods missed Week 7 with a foot injury but returned to play in Weeks 8 and 9. Coming out of the bye week, the team is no doubt being conservative with Woods by limiting him in practice, especially with Sammy Watkins not yet ready to return. After practicing in limited fashion daily, Woods is expected to suit up Sunday, but fantasy owners will want to check pregame inactives.Will Fuller V, Houston Texans, knee, (Q): Fuller again comes into this week questionable and is expected to be a game-time decision according to coach Bill OBrien. Given that the team doesnt play until Monday night, this is not ideal for fantasy owners who may be nervous after Fuller was inactive last week. Its worth noting that Fuller did practice on a limited basis each day and according to the Houston Chronicle, OBrien has expressed optimism that Fuller will play.Jarvis Landry, shoulder and Kenny Stills, calf, Miami Dolphins, (Q): Landry was listed as questionable heading into last weeks game with the same issue and he not only played, he played virtually every offensive snap. After limited practices Wednesday and Thursday, Landry was a full participant Friday and should be good to go against the Rams on Sunday. His teammate Kenny Stills has been battling a calf issue for the past two weeks but also managed to suit up in Week 10. He followed a similar practice pattern as Landry with full participation on Friday. Stills is also expected to play this week. This is a late game, so fantasy owners should always have a backup plan in place, just in case there is a surprise inactive here.Eddie Royal, Chicago Bears, toe, (Q): Royal fought through a toe injury to be active last week, his first game action in four weeks. He suffered no apparent setbacks and participated in limited practice daily this week. With teammate Alshon Jeffery suspended four games for violating the leagues policy on performance-enhancing substances, Royal may well see an increased target share, as will?Cameron Meredith and potentially Zach Miller.Julian Edelman, foot New England Patriots (Q): Edelman has yet to miss a game despite being listed weekly on the injury report. He continues to practice on a limited basis daily to proactively preserve him for game day. This week, he travels home to California to play the 49ers. He wont miss this one.Torrey Smith, San Francisco 49ers, shoulder, (Q): Smith is on the injury report after not practicing Wednesday with a shoulder injury. He returned to limited practice Thursday and repeated the effort Friday. Barring a surprise, Smith is expected to play Sunday against the Patriots.Jordan Matthews, Philadelphia Eagles, back, (Q): Matthews missed Wednesdays practice due to back spasms. At the time, coach Doug Pederson said he expected Matthews to return Thursday. He did. Pederson also said he expected Matthews would be fine to play this weekend. Expect that he will be. That said, back spasms can be tricky and the Eagles had to make a long trip to Seattle. Plus, this is a late game (4:25 p.m. ET). Fantasy owners will want to be sure Matthews is active and be prepared to slide someone else into that roster slot if for some reason he is not.Amari Cooper, Oakland Raiders, back, (Q): Cooper was also listed on the injury report with a back strain heading into Week 9 but he did manage to play. Now the Raiders have had a bye week in between then and this weeks Monday night game, so Cooper should be in better shape. He was a daily participant in practice on a limited basis and the expectation is that he will suit up in Mexico City against the Texans. Ideally, fantasy owners will have an alternate to plug in if for some reason Cooper is unable to play.Players Off Game Status Injury Report: Randall Cobb, hamstring and Ty Montgomery, illness, Green Bay Packers: Cobb remained on the injury report earlier this week and continued to protect his hamstring by practicing on a limited basis, but his removal from the injury report indicates he is expected to play. Cobb missed Week 8 with the injury, was active in Week 9 but did nothing until very late in the game, then in Week 10 his activity increased to roughly 70 percent of the offensive snaps. The hope is that he will be more involved this week as the Packers face Washington on Sunday night. Montgomery is also expected to be active after sitting out one day of practice this week with what ESPN.coms Rob Demovsky reported as a bug, not related to his sickle cell trait.Victor Cruz, New York Giants, ankle: Cruz sat out the Week 10 Monday night game as he had hinted he might earlier in the week. This week he was a limited participant in practice daily and his removal from the injury report confirms the Giants expect him to play.Sammie Coates, Pittsburgh Steelers, finger: Coates has been dealing with not one, but two finger fractures on the same hand. That will definitely make it tough to catch passes. Apparently the Steelers are feeling better about his ability to do just that as he is off the teams injury report this week.Larry Fitzgerald, Arizona Cardinals, knee/ankle: Last week Fitzgerald racked up 100-plus yards receiving, but he also put the scare in everyone when he landed on the back of his neck. Still, that wasnt even the body part that had him on the injury report this week. Still recovering from the ankle sprain of two weeks ago, Fitzgerald also tweaked his knee, which resulted in an early-week MRI. Clearly there was no serious injury as Fitz was back in full practices both Thursday and Friday. He is off the injury report once again prior to the game, making life much easier for his fantasy owners.Tight EndsMartellus Bennett, New Englan

Kent 310 for 3 (Dickson 81, Denly 78) vs SussexScorecard It was a day for the purists in Royal Tunbridge Wells where bowlers toiled in the heat and dirt while Kents batsmen played the ball on its merits to reach 310 for 3 on the opening day of their Specsavers County Championship clash with neighbours Sussex. Jose Altuve Jersey .A sluggish, two-paced pitch coupled with an outfield at The Nevill Ground that could do with a good mowing ensured an honest battle between bat and ball and, with great joy, the introduction of leg-spin before lunch as the visitors vied for a second breakthrough.Kent certainly won the cat-and-mouse tussle of day one courtesy of a second-wicket stand worth 162 in 57.2 overs between Joe Denly (78) and Sean Dickson (81) who could only muster 12 boundaries between them.Dickson, Kents top-scorer on a hard-working day, said: Joe Denly and I had a chat when we were batting and we came to the conclusion that the pitch was two-paced and seemed a bit quicker from the bowlers from the Pavilion End.Whittingham bowled me a bouncer earlier that over and, if Im honest, I didnt play it that well. I knew in the back of my mind hes probably bowl me a second bouncer but I never really got into a good enough position to deal with it. I was caught between the steer and leaving it alone and did neither. I should have just ducked out of the way.Dickson added: Ive been getting decent starts of late without going on beyond 50. Okay, I didnt bat on to reach three-figures today but, looking at the bigger picture, Ive at least helped set us up nicely for a big total.In these conditions the pitch will only get dryer and start to break up. So the prospect for Sussex, of facing Kagiso Rabada and our two spinners on a dry wicket, isnt going to be an inviting one.Batting first after winning the toss, Kent lost their makeshift opener Adam Ball to the 10th ball of the match. Standing in for Daniel Bell-Drummond who is away on England Lions duty together with Sam Billings, Ball drove at his fourth ball of the day from Chris Jordan to edge to Ross Taylor at first slip and depart without scoring.Denly and Dickson saw off the new ball pairing of Steve Magoffin and Jordan, then Stu Whittinghams first delivery of the game proved eventful, a beamer, it flew over Joe Denlys head for six no balls leading to an official warning from umpire Nick Cook.The hosts re-grouped either side of lunch through Denly and Dickson who set out their stall to bat time. Playing back, the South Africa-born player in two minds against a short delivery and only succeeded in spooning it to Will Beer positioned in the gully.After batting over four hours Denly was also guilty of giving up his own wicket. Aiming to pull a length ball from Whittingham, he skied a top-edge to Taylor at mid-wicket to make it 199 for three. It proved to be the last success of the day for Sussex.Northeast and Stevens dug in through to stumps, Northeast passing his 50 in 77 balls while Stevens posted his first-half century since mid-May from 75 deliveries and with six fours and six.Lance McCullers Jersey . Boucher previously coached the Tampa Bay Lightning and had a 97-78-20 record over two-plus seasons. He was dismissed by the team last March after the Lightning struggled in the lockout-shortened season with a 13-18-1 record. Cheap Astros Jerseys . -- Matt Rupert scored once in regulation and again in the shootout as the London Knights extended their win streak to nine games by defeating the Owen Sound Attack 4-3 on Friday in Ontario Hockey League action. http://www.cheapastrosjerseys.com/?tag=cheap-george-springer-jersey .Y. -- Leading 3-0 with only 11:25 left, the Colorado Avalanche committed a seemingly meaningless penalty to give the New York Islanders a power play.With a brand new goalie on board and the NHL Draft just days away, its a busy time of year for Toronto Maple Leafs general manager Dave Nonis. Speaking to Dave Naylor on TSN Drive on TSN Radio 1050 on Tuesday afternoon, Nonis reflected on how goalie Jonathan Bernier will fit into the Leafs plans going forward. "From our standpoint, it was the excitement about bringing in another top young goaltender into the organization and have Jonathan and James (Reimer) together," explained Nonis. "I think it gives us probably, in my opinion, one of the top two punches of potential in the National Hockey League." Nonis was asked if he believed that a possible battle for playing time between Bernier and Reimer could cause some tension for the club. "Well I think thats always a risk at any position. Its a situation where we feel we have two guys with great potential and great character and theres no reason why they cant both compete hard for that job and push as hard as they can to keep control of the net," said Nonis. So how did Reimer take the news that Bernier was joining the club? "(He was) professional. I think he was a little bit...I wouldnt say shocked but surprised that we brought a similar player in. I think he was thinking we would have more of an established older guy join him. "(But) if you look at the goaltenders that are available right now there wasnt a good fit for us. James understands that. He doesnt expect to come in here and have anything given to him. He wants to come in here and keep the net himself and thats what we expect out of him." While Nonis admits that no player inn untouchable, he says the club has no plans to move Reimer at this point. Cheap Astros Jerseys Authentic. "When we (made this trade), the thinking was you would have both (Bernier and Reimer) here at training camp and battling it out for the opening night starting position. Nonis and Naylor also discussed other parts of the team that the general manager would like to improve upon. "Down the middle is what championship teams are built with and watching the final four teams and the final two gives you a pretty good example of what you need to follow," explained Nonis. "If we can strengthen our centre position and continue to add some guys on the back end we would do it. "Really, that hasnt changed (for us), and most other teams are looking at the same things, so those are the hardest positions to find. Nonis discussed the changing dynamic of making moves in the first off-season of the new Collective Bargaining Agreement. "There are more people now than usual that are looking to do a deal, but because the (salary) cap is going down its more difficult to complete one. There are going to be a lot of options, but most teams have limited cap space. It will be a moving target between now and the start of free agency." Nonis also addressed the clubs wish to attempt to keep potential unrestricted free agent Tyler Bozak. "Its a function of making (Bozak) fit within a falling cap, and we have a little bit of time left to do that. Were going to see if we can get him signed by July 5th, but if we cant were going to have to re-allocate those dollars and try to find another solution," said Nonis. Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '

West Indies head coach Phil Simmons has said having more seniors in the T20 side compared to the Test squad is a good feeling as it makes things easy for him for the two upcoming T20Is against India in Lauderhill, Florida. Leandro Paredes Jersey . As opposed to the inexperienced Test side that lost 2-0 to India, their T20 squad features Chris Gayle, Dwayne Bravo, Sunil Narine, Andre Russell and Kieron Pollard among other specialist T20 players. They will also play under the new captain Carlos Brathwaite after Darren Sammy was dropped from the side.Its good to have all the senior guys back and they make things easy for me because its a case of them doing all the work and they know this format inside out, Simmons said on Thursday in Lauderhill. So it gives me a chance to just enjoy them freeing themselves out there.Simmons also said being the T20 champions helped the sides confidence, comparing them with the 1980s Test side, which dominated the longer format for years.In this context, I think its a case where we are world champions and its something we have made our own, similar to back in the 80s when we made Test cricket our own. We always had the team to beat in T20 cricket so from that point of view weve got a lot better and all the guys are loving playing it. But its a stepping-stone to one-day cricket too.Brathwaite has played only eight T20Is so far and played only the first of the four Tests against India, scoring 0 and an unbeaten 51. While he had recently said the T20 players were mature enough to handle a change in leadership, Simmons said the objective of the new captain and the entire side would be to build on the World T20 win in India.I think his (Brathwaites) main mindset is that we have to continue where Sammy left us and the good work that Sammy did in this position, Simmons said. I think thats the mindset of all players that we have to continue the work we did in the [T20] World Cup and before that.Even though their T20 squad is vastly different from the Test side, Simmons said there would be an easy transition in the dressing room because the T20 side has broadly remained the same since the World T20, which they won without Narine and Pollard.Yeah, it could be a bit different but I think theres only three players here who played in that [Test] series, Simmons explained. So it is not that much of a transition because the three players know how to play this and one of them was the best player in the World Cup, you know, batting wise. I think we are easy with that transition.We still prepare for the two days here the same way we would have prepared before. Its just that the Indian team has been together for longer but we are over here preparing and we will do that over the next two days.Simmons also emphasised on the kind of impact players like Russell and Narine could make in the shortest format. Russell recently struck a 44-ball 100 packed with 11 sixes and played a crucial role, along with Gayle, in taking Jamaica Tallawahs to their second CPL title. Narine took 14 wickets in the CPL with an economy rate of 5.55, and also finished as the second-highest wicket-taker in the tri-series against South Africa and Australia in June.I dont think theres much to be said about Andre, Simmons said. From what hes on the pitch, he just gives everything over there and hes always going to be our main player for us. Once he starts, with either bat or ball, we are in a position of winning.I havent seen the surface properly yet but Narine played here for Trinidad & Tobago in the CPL and he has done well and adapted well. So Id like the same from him.Their squad will also be bolstered by Johnson Charles, the second-highest run-scorer in the CPL, Andre Fletcher, Lendl Simmons and legspinner Samuel Badree, the No. 1 ranked bowler in T20Is, who had injured himself in the World T20 final. Simmons stated that beating India in T20s, just like they had done in the World T20 semi-final in Mumbai, was going to be a bigger motivation than their T20 ranking, which is third currently behind New Zealand and India.It (ranking) is motivation but I think, as in Mumbai, just to beat India because thats always going to be the team to beat in T20 cricket because theyve commanded the format for a long period. So winning against India is always going to be high on the agenda. Where we get after that, we are happy at that.The only thing that we are doing is that we will prepare as best as we can because India is going to be coming looking for revenge for the semi-final loss and we have to make sure that we are ready for whatever they bring to us.Simmons was also asked about the recent discussions the WICB held with the players during the WICB/WIPA Players Symposium in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, and he barely commented on that, but sounded more excited about the coming matches at the Central Broward Regional Park Stadium in Lauderhill.I was there, and Im happy that discussions were held, he said. Its not about holding discussions; its about where you go from there. Lets see where it takes us.This is an awesome stadium, awesome! Looking at the CPL, the wicket seemed to be very good too. So if the wicket is as good as it was in CPL in a stadium like this, we are in for a treat over the weekend. Authentic Soccer Argentina Jerseys . -- If this was Aaron Gordons final home game at Arizona, and it almost certainly was, then he went out in style. Lucas Biglia Jersey .

There was just a bit of uncertainty heading into Tuesdays opening leg of Major League Soccers all-Canadian Eastern Conference championship. Wholesale Cardinals Jerseys .The Montreal Impact and Toronto FC are due to meet Tuesday night at historic Olympic Stadium, a 40-year-old Montreal landmark built for the 1976 Olympics.Even though its an indoor venue, a concern going into the match was the weather: The stadium roof is fragile -- and snow was falling in the city Monday. But a stadium heating system appeared to be keeping any accumulation at bay and the Olympic Park announced the game would go on as planned.The Impact normally play at Stade Saputo, which sits next door to the Olympic Stadium but seats just over 20,000. Nearly 60,000 are expected for the match.The Impact has played games at the Big O, so the home-field advantage is still there, but the condition of the artificial turf -- which lies atop concrete -- might be a factor. Saputos surface is natural grass.As far as the surface, of course, we would like to get to this point to such important games and playing the best possible conditions, but thats just one factor among many others in the game, Toronto star Sebastian Giovinco said.Some of those other factors to consider for the two-legged MLS conference finals:TORONTO VERSES MONTREALMontreal finished 11-11-12 in the regular season for the fifth seed in the East. The Impact defeated the New York Red Bulls 3-1 on aggregate in the conference semifinals to advance. Theyre led by Argentinian midfielder Ignacio Piatti, who scored 17 goals in the regular season and three in the playoffs.The Impact appear to have gotten past the controversy involving former Chelsea star Didier Drogba, who lost his role as a starter to Matteo Mancosu. Drogba sat out of Montreals second-to-last regular season match against Toronto, a 2-2 draw, because of the demotion. But he told reporters last week that he was focused on taking the Impact to the MLS Cup championship.Toronto was the No. 3 seed in the East after going 14-9-11 in the regular season. TFC advanced to the conference finals with a 7-0 aggregate victory over New York City FC. The team is led by Giovinco, who has 21 total goals this season, including four in the postseason.The Impact defeated Toronto in the knockout round of the playoffs last year.Last year was just a small taste, Toronto FC coach Greg Vanney said last week in a conference call with reporters. We started extremely poorly in that game and paid for that, but I think it was just a taste of the rivalry continuing to build between these two franchises. Its a Montreal-Toronto rivalry in hockey and other sports that goes way, way back. We have enough guys on the roster from last year who remember that day and were embarrassed on that day, as was myself, but our mentality will be different than it was last year.COLORADO VERSUS SEATTLEThe Sounders went 14-14-6 during the regular season for the No. 4 seed in the Western Conference. Seattles story is the teams incredible rebound from last place in the conference and the dismissal of longtime coach Sigi Schmid. The interim tag was removed from coach Brian Schmetzers title earlier this month. The Sounders, who defeated FC Dallas 4-2 on aggregate in the semifinals, are led by homegrown rookie Jordan Morris with 12 overall goals.Colorado, which finished 15-6-13 in the regular season and narrowly missed out on the Supporters Shield, got a knockout-round bye as the second seed in the West. Known more for their stout defense, the Rapids are led by Swiss forward Shkelzen Gashi with 10 goals in his first MLS season. The Rapids advanced after a penalty shootout with the Los Angeles Galaxy following a 1-1 semifinal.Colorado won the MLS Cup in 2010.Both teams have been stung by injuries this season. For the Sounders it was the unexpected loss of national team star Clint Dempsey because of a heart issue.For the Rapids it has been the loss of goalkeeper Tim Howard, who had season-ending surgery Thursday after suffering a fracture of the right adductor longus in his groin while on duty with the U.S. national team.Colorado will start Zac McMath, who lost the job when Howard joined the Rapids in July after 10 seasons with Everton in the English Premier League. McMath was one of the best goalkeepers in the league at 9-2-5 when Howard arrived.Credit to Zac for being very strong mentally, and prepared, Rapids coach Pablo Mastroeni said. It takes a man to be able to take that information, given his performances, and not sulk and not throw his toy and not run out of the room and slam doors, to look at someone in the face and go, `OK, this is your decision, all right. Im a team player; Ive got to respect that. Cheap MLB Jerseys . Brad Jacobs and his Sault Ste. Marie, Ont., team took control of the game early. Cheap Cardinals Jerseys . 10 Texas A&Ms offence dominated as usual against SMU. http://www.cheapstlouiscardinalsjerseys.com/ . -- For the first time in two months, an opponent was standing up to Alabama. GREEN BAY, Wis. -- The loss of safety Earl Thomas to a season-ending injury left a gaping hole in the Seattle Seahawks formidable defense.The Green Bay Packers are more concerned about the considerable talent still left with the Seahawks.Life without Thomas begins Sunday when Seattle travels to Lambeau Field in an important game in the NFC playoff picture. The Packers (6-6) need a win to keep pace with first-place Detroit in the NFC North. The Seahawks (8-3-1) have two avenues to clinch the NFC West on Sunday, the easiest being a win over Green Bay along with an Arizona loss or tie.Whatever happens, coach Pete Carrolls club must play the rest of the season without Thomas, the former All-Pro safety who broke his lower left leg in last weeks 40-7 win over Carolina.You cant really replace him. All you can do is try to find somebody that can fit in in a role thats similar, that can do 80 percent or even 60 percent of what he does and can help us win the game, defensive end Michael Bennett said.Thomas job will be filled by Steven Terrell , who was mostly a special teams contributor until a few weeks ago when Thomas suffered a hamstring injury. Hes ready to be tested by Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers.Im prepared for that, you always think teams are going to take shots deep, Terrell said.But what the Packers have done best of late is attack defenses with quick passes on short-to-medium routes, with Jordy Nelson, Davante Adams and Randall Cobb giving Rodgers a trio of reliable receivers. Minus a consistent running game with Eddie Lacy (ankle) out for the year, coach Mike McCarthy has had to get creative to keep defenses guessing.But were not going to drop back and throw 50-yard post routes all day because theyve got a new free safety, McCarthy said. I dont think thats practical. I mean, you just see how the new guy fits in.Other notes and things to watch ahead of Sundays game:COOKING THINGS UP: The return of tight end Jared Cook from a foot injury three games ago gave Rodgers a big receiving target. The 6-foot-5 Cook, who could test the Seahawks over the middle with Thomas out, has experienced some success against Seattle while he played for the Rams.He has also experienced bone-crunchingg hits from Seattles other tough safety, Kam Chancellor. Cheap Cardinals Jerseys China. You just cant worry about it, Cook said. Youre going to get hit, youre going to have defenders in the middle of the field, so youve just got to catch and secure the ball.RUN IT OUT: Seattles run game is starting to find some traction, and that could help if it snows again in Green Bay.The Seahawks have rushed for at least 125 yards as a team in three straight games. Last week against Carolina was the peak, with the Seahawks running for 240 yards. Thomas Rawls rushed for 103 yards in the first half against the Panthers, becoming the second Seattle player this season to have a 100-yard game.ACHES AND PAINS: The injury bug on the Packers defense has now hit the linebacker position. Nick Perry (eight sacks) has been ruled out for Sunday with a left hand injury. He was also a solid run defender on the edge.Clay Matthews is working through a painful left shoulder injury. Starting inside linebackers Jake Ryan (ankle) and Blake Martinez (knee) also have been limited this week. The injuries in part have affected a run defense that has slackened since the opening month of the season.RUN IT OUT, PART 2: James Starks hasnt had much production on the ground for the Packers, but he has had his moments on screens and in the short passing game, and that might come in handy against Seattles effective pass rush. Christine Michael, who was claimed off waivers from Seattle a few weeks ago, has slowly been getting more carries as he gets up to speed in Green Bay. He had 19 yards on nine carries last week against Houston .WHAT WEATHER? Whatever the weather Sunday, it shouldnt be a problem for Seattle. A little snow, or a little cold seem easy to deal with after last Januarys NFC wild-card game in Minnesota, played in negative temperatures. You cant get any worse than we had in Minnesota, Seattles Richard Sherman said.
