Disgruntled WR Martavis Bryant calls in sick to Steelers meetings

The Martavis Bryant saga took another turn Monday when the talented but disgruntled receiver didn’t show up for Steelers meetings because of an illness.

Thomas Santanello, Bryant’s agent, said Bryant went to see a doctor Monday morning. Bryant was not in the Steelers facility, and his locker chair was folded during the media’s 45-minute window of open access Monday afternoon.

Injuries are a big reason the Ravens offense has been unable to get on track, ranking 31st in total offense. The Dolphins aren’t exactly lighting it up, with the NFL’s worst offense and a minus-20 point differential.

The Lions are in danger of falling out of the NFC North race and will host one of the NFL’s hottest teams.

Police say Kevin Conroy, of Millis, is charged with drug possession, negligent operation and possession of an open alcohol container.

Police say Langi was stopped at a traffic light in Foxborough on Oct. 13 when Conroy’s Jeep, going 50 mph, rear-ended him. The force pinned Langi’s car between the Jeep and the car in front of him.

Conroy had medications he said had been prescribed to him. He passed a Breathalyzer. He was not arrested, but will be summoned to court. It’s unclear if he has a lawyer.

Langi, an undrafted free agent from Brigham Young, and his wife were hospitalized for several days.

It’s the most effective this unit has looked all year. It showed in Elliott’s stat line.chargers_123

Robert Mathis Jersey arrested on drunken driving charge

Former Colts pass-rusher Robert Mathis was arrested early Tuesday morning on a drunken driving charge, according to Hamilton County (Indiana) online court records.
Women's Authentic Reebok Josh Anderson White Away Jersey - #34 NHL Columbus Blue Jackets
He was arrested shortly after midnight in Carmel, a suburb just north of Indianapolis, on the initial charge of operating a vehicle while intoxicated. Carmel Police said the 36-year-old Mathis was driving the wrong way on a one-way street and did not signal a turn.

He was suspended for four games in 2014 for using performance-enhancing drugs. He eventually missed the entire season after tearing his Achilles. Neither Goodell nor the business executives liked the action plan at that moment, but what worried the business executives was that Goodell was not focused on what they deemed the priority: the very real financial problems facing the NFL. Fact was, they were right. Goodell believed that all players should stand, but he and Vincent had been working with them for more than a year on their concerns, calling them individually and holding meetings, and the commissioner deeply cared about their cause.

Game Youth Gabe Jackson Jersey The Pro Bowler signed a three-year extension Wednesday morning to keep him with the Lions through the 2020 season. NFL Network reported that Prater’s extension is worth $11.4 million, including a $3.6 million signing bonus. The deal could escalate to $12.15 million.

It’s definitely a relief, Prater said. Any time Todd Bertuzzi Youth jersey you have a little more security, that’s always a good thing. Obviously I’m excited to be here and very fortunate and it’s going to be good for my family to call Detroit home for a while.

Prater, who holds the NFL record for the longest-ever field goal, at 64 yards, has been a consistent presence for the Lions since signing with the club after he was released by Denver at the end of a four-game suspension for violating the league’s substance abuse policy.

Weird things happen on Thursday night games every now and then. I’m trying to see Jameis do this again:
#34 Nike Limited Isaiah Crowell Men's Brown NFL Jersey - Home Cleveland Browns Vapor Untouchable
Expectations have been up for the Bucs going into the season because that’s what we do with teams that have a quarterback who was drafted high and get a new weapon like DeSean Jackson.

And hey, even if Jameis doesn’t go off, we could get some Yakety Sax-type blunder from him, and those are always entertaining:

I think its safe to say that Khalil Mack is well on his way to being a great defensive lineman at this point. His performance against the Broncos on Sunday was the latest evidence of that.

Trubisky makes his debut tonight, Mahomes looked terrific in the preseason but as the backup on the only undefeated team in the league is going to have to wait his turn, while Watson is looking like the next big thing. Meanwhile the quarterbacks the Browns did take because they were good value have both been benched: despite a decent season in 2016, Cody Kessler lost his job in the offseason to Kizer, who has now lost his job to Hogan.

The argument that the Browns were right to pass on a QB high and focus on building up the team around the position first, as Browns legal counsel turned Executive Vice President of Football Operations explains, has always been weak.

Highvalue draft picks in the first couple rounds are tremendously valuable. We have a long way to go to get our roster where it needs to be. We understand that and so this is a great opportunity to add a player and add another player next year that we Authentic Jason Vargas Jersey hope, again, will be another impact player for us. So it’s really for us a twoforone and where we’re coming from on our roster that’s valuable.

Ravens center Ryan Jensen Jersey blocks like a beast, and it’s fun to watch

Disrespectful Blocks of the Week is ready to roll for Week 5. Guys, this is easily the best video of the year. The offensive linemen have picked it up, and it’s been fun to watch. Now is the time of the year when guys get into a groove.

Everybody has to understand he’s not going to come back and take all the first-team reps and play 50, 60, 70 snaps in practice a day, Pagano said. We have to integrate him back into practice. Like anybody else, do some individual, throw some routes versus air, stay with his throwing progression and bring him along. Again, it’d be great just to have him out there with his teammates, red jersey on, working again.

Luck initially injured the shoulder during the 2015 season. Since he missed the start of the season, Scott Tolzien started in his place, only to be replaced by Jacoby Brissett after Tolzien’s poor performance against the Rams.

The Colts are 1-3 on the season and have games against the 49ers, Titans, and Jaguars coming up. The 49ers game is winnable, but with two division games coming up, they’ll hope to get Luck on the field as soon as possible.

Goodell said he has had no discussions about the topic with President Donald Trump, who has frequently used his Twitter account to attack both the protesting players and Goodell and the NFL for failing to stop them.

What we’re trying to do is stay out of politics, Goodell said. We’re not looking to get into politics. What we’re looking to do is continue to get people focused on football.

Contrarian NFL betting strategy for Week 7

Yesterday, I went out to my car to head to work and was greeted with a thin coat of frost on my windshield. Fall is finally here! Although we aren’t expected to see any games in freezing temperatures any time soon, something that is perhaps even more important to the outcomes of NFL games is wind.

But Elliott will still play in Week 1 while the NFLPA awaits a ruling on its attempt to block a suspension. That won’t come until Friday:

Just got out of court and got phone back. NFL took position Ezekiel Elliott CAN play Sunday. Judge rules by 5 pm Friday on restraining order

Although Agholor has three top-15 fantasy weeks under his belt this year, he finished 47th or worse in the other three weeks. Agholor has been on the field for 73 percent of the team’s pass plays and is handling a 15 percent target share (5.0 per game). That isn’t enough to sustain high-end fantasy production, let alone flex value.

Tom Brady has been as sharp as ever, but a lackluster defense has the Patriots in a three-way tie atop the AFC East — right alongside the Jets. The 2017 season was supposed to be a rebuilding year for New York, but wins over the Dolphins, Jaguars, and Browns have pushed a depleted roster over .500 after five games. The Jets are still looking for a quality win after beating some low-octane teams; toppling the defending champions would certainly qualify.

Derek Carr returned from injury in Week 6, but he was limited to 21 completions on 30 attempts for 171 yards, one touchdown and a pair of interceptions. Carr has exactly one touchdown in three straight games (though one was the injury-shortened Week 4 outing), and hasn’t eclipsed 171 passing yards since Week 2. Despite Carr’s improvement in play over the past two years, his yards per attempt (7.0) were below league average both season.steelers_033

Week 6 takeaways on Adrian Peterson Jersey, Aaron Rodgers Jersey and more

On Sunday, in his first game with the Cardinals, running back Adrian Peterson thrashed the Buccaneers defense for 134 yards and two touchdowns. But is the veteran now back for good? Let’s discuss Peterson’s value moving forward, hit on the fantasy fall-out in Green Bay with the injury to Aaron Rodgers, take a look at Nelson Agholor’s run on production and much more.

Aaron Rodgers is out for the Packers, which means we need to completely re-evaluate the team’s offensive skill position players. When Rodgers missed half the season back in 2013, the Packers’ offense managed eight passing and 10 rushing touchdowns (2.3 total per game) during the eight games he missed. That’s compared to 18 passing and eight rushing scores (2.9 total per game) during the nine full games he played. Jordy Nelson scored eight touchdowns with Rodgers under center but only one while he was out. The Packers figure to try to run the ball more without Rodgers, but closer games will mean they’ll be forced to throw it more in the second half.

Hunt put Steelers linebacker Vince Williams all the way on his back and just kept running.

The Chiefs surpassed the total number of yards they’d gained on the day in that single drive. It didn’t matter. They couldn’t punch it into the end zone, and Alex Smith’s fourth-down pass attempt was intercepted.

Then, she said Elliott dragged her to the bedroom, telling her don’t play with me. He then tried to call the guy she had been seeing when she and Elliott were broken up, but the other guy didn’t answer, according to his accuser. She said she brought up Elliott’s past cheating.

NFL players and owners met on Tuesday to discuss social issues, a session Miami Dolphins Jersey owner Stephen Ross called constructive.

A group of 11 owners and more than a dozen players met at the league’s headquarters in New York. Among the topics discussed was enhancing the players’ platforms for speaking out on social issues. We heard what they had to say and they heard us, Ross said. It’s open talks and that’s a good thing.

The IPSF, alongside armwrestling, dodgeball and a number of other events, now has two years to meet GAISF’s requirements to become a fully-recognised sport.

They include becoming compliant with the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) and increasing their membership across the world.

Limited Kayvon Webster Jersey Kaepernick will still be there. And based upon the direction the NFL is headed, he always will be.

Something to encourage the Raiders: In 2015, a team started 1-5, won their last 10 games, made the playoffs, won a playoff game and gave the Patriots a run in the next round. That team was … the Chiefs. Beating that team now could turn Oakland’s season around. Losing to them means they need to do something that isn’t impossible, but is too rare to count on. For what it’s worth, as much as NaVorro Bowman helps the Raiders defense, they need much more help than that against Alex Smith.

Detroit can still get back to being a factor in the NFC, but it blew two games with big mistakes against New Orleans and Carolina. Now a banged-up Matthew Stafford will need to win the next one without go-to wideout Golden Tate.

Jay Cutler, after all the questions about whether he should be benched, is on the right side of .500 because of more pretty than gritty play the past few weeks. They are also helping him a lot with the running game.

There was at lot of reaction to the play, and people weren’t happy with how the officials made their decision. Most of the anger didn’t come from the fact that they ruled it a non-touchdown, but because they said Jenkins fumbled the ball.

I don’t understand how that isn’t a TD for Austin Seferian-Jenkins. Patriots have benefitted significantly from some questionable calls.

The final shot we saw was from the end zone that showed the New York Jets’ runner, we’ll call him a runner at that point, with the football starting to go toward the ground, Corrente said. He lost the ball. It came out of his control as he was almost to the ground. Now he re-grasps the ball and by rule, now he has to complete the process of recovery, which means he has to survive the ground again. So in recovering it, he recovered, hit the knee, started to roll and the ball came out a second time. So the ball started to move in his hands this way … he’s now out of bounds in the end zone, which now created a touchback. So he didn’t survive the recovery and didn’t survive the ground during the recovery is what happened here.

This strategy isn’t going to work well for Carolina.

The remade Celtics, with their collection of A-minus/B-plus max players, have a lot to prove before we bump them into the hallowed tier above. They were only a hair better than league average on defense last season, and they tossed away two ballhawks — Avery Bradley and Jae Crowder — in turning over 75 percent of their roster.

Rebounding will be an issue again, though Brad Stevens may deploy Aron Baynes as something of a utility glass-eating starter. Opponents shot just 33 percent from deep and 34 percent on corner 3s — the second-lowest marks in the league. How much of that was luck? We’ll see. Boston is stocked with huge wings; Gordon Hayward starts as the nominal shooting guard. If the team switches a ton, dial in on closeouts, and gang rebound, Boston will retain some of last season’s peskiness.

Touchdown, Panthers. After a 25-yard return from McCaffrey, a season-best, the Panthers need just four plays and less than two minutes to get into the end zone. Newton scores on a 16-yard touchdown run and Gano’s extra point is good. The Panthers lead 10-3 with 10:34 remaining in the half.

Panthers running backs have four carries for minus-8 yards after one quarter.

Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette Jersey clocked at blistering 22 mph during TD run

Leonard Fournette is a running back in the NFL, so obviously he’s fast.

But the Jaguars rookie was a star in Week 5 with a 90-yard touchdown run against the Steelers, where he burst down the field going 22.05 mph.

Not only has Fournette been the fastest running back all season, but he has been the fastest person who has carried the ball, even faster than Tyreek Hill and Marquise Goodwin.

Police also found a prescription painkiller on Porter when they questioned him. He did not have a prescription for the drug. According to the affidavit, officers found 46 more pills in his car along with one ounce of marijuana, a grinder and a 9mm firearm.

Porter, who admitted to owning the items found, was booked into the East Baton Rouge Parish Prison for possession with intent to distribute Acetaminophen, possession of a firearm with a controlled substance, possession of drug paraphernalia, possession of marijuana and battery of a dating partner.

After trading field goals in the first quarter, the Panthers scored the game’s first touchdown thanks to three incredible plays. The scoring drive was initially set up by McCaffrey’s 25-yard punt return to the Eagles 43-yard line. Kelvin Benjamin then kept the drive alive with a diving 14-yard catch at the 16.

If you check the film, you’ve got receivers (like) Keenan (Allen) pancaking guys. They helped me out a lot.

Gordon and the Chargers’ running game needed the boost. Los Angeles entered MetLife Stadium averaging 67.5 yards a game, which ranked 29th in the NFL, and 3.6 yards a carry.

Such figures were unexpected considering Gordon was coming off a breakthrough season in 2016 and new Chargers coach Anthony Lynn is a former NFL running back himself who places heavy emphasis on the rushing attack.
