Sam Bradford Jersey injury update: Vikings QB won’t play against Bucs

Markus Wheaton Mens Jersey Sam Bradford has been ruled out of Sunday’s game against the Buccaneers, and concerns about his knee injury have called into question his availability in the coming weeks.

Vikings coach Mike Zimmer told reporters Friday afternoon that Bradford is out, leaving Case Keenum to start a second consecutive game for Minnesota.

Multiple outlets reported Bradford was en route to get a second opinion on his left knee from Dr. James Andrews, who has previously operated on the QB’s knee and shoulder.

Felix Potvin Limited Jersey Bradford was limited in practice Wednesday and Thursday and did not appear on the practice field Friday.

Keenum was 20 of 37 passing for 167 yards with no touchdowns or interceptions in Minnesota’s Week 2 loss to the Steelers. Kyle Sloter will back him up Sunday.

Kareem Hunt, RB, Kansas City Chiefs: He just continues to rewrite the record books, posting 25.3 PPR fantasy points on Sunday, his third consecutive week with at least 25. He joined Marcus Allen (1982 Weeks 1-3) as the only two players (at any position) since at least 1950 to score at least that many in each of their first three NFL games, and Hunt’s 96.8 total PPR fantasy points and 87.8 non-PPR fantasy points are second most behind only Billy Sims’ 98.2 and 92.2 (1980 Weeks 1-3) through the first three games of an NFL career. Hunt was started in 98.6 percent of ESPN leagues in Week 3, and continued to cement his status as an every-week, front-of-the-RB1-class weekly fantasy play.

Marcedes Lewis, TE, Jacksonville Jaguars: Congratulations if you were one of the fantasy managers who constituted the 0.03 percent of ESPN leagues in which Lewis was active in Week 3. He managed career bests with 24.2 non-PPR and 28.2 PPR fantasy points, and both of those were the second most by any tight end in a game in London, trailing only Rob Gronkowski’s 26.6 and 34.6 in 2012 Week 8.

Joe Thomas Jersey played his 10,000th straight snap for the Browns. That’s UNREAL.

Despite the fact that the Saints are 0-2, the NFC South is still looking like a pretty tough division. The Falcons look like they’ve avoided a Super Bowl hangover, and the Panthers seem to have shaken off theirs, which afflicted them all last season.

The Buccaneers are also undefeated, but with just one win after their Week 1 game against the Dolphins was pushed back because of Hurricane Irma. And the Saints haven’t won a September game since the 2014 season. They may be destined for another 7-9 finish.

I won’t belabor this, because I went into detail about it above. But the NFC West looks pretty bad — bad enough that whatever team wins it could do it with a sub-.500 record, just like 2010.

Russell Wilson’s doing his best, but the offensive line is atrocious. Even Seattle’s talent on defense isn’t enough to overcome the weaknesses on the other side of the ball.

And speaking of San Francisco, they’re lingering at the bottom of this division with no wins so far. Few people had high expectations for the 49ers this season, as they go through the rebuilding process with a rookie head coach, Kyle Shanahan, and general manager, John Lynch.
Elite Kids Kevin Zeitler Jersey
Shanahan coaxed an MVP performance out of Matt Ryan in 2016, but Brian Hoyer … well, he’s not Matt Ryan. Hoyer has thrown for 262 total yards over two games and has no touchdowns against two interceptions. He’s also taken six sacks so far, which isn’t helping.

Tom Brady talked the refs out of an offensive pass interference call on a Patriots touchdown

When Tom Brady hit Chris Hogan in the Saints end zone for a 13-yard touchdown, a flag on the turf seemed to suggest the play was coming back after offensive pass interference.

That’s when Brady went into litigation mode.

Not everything is Dak’s fault. Sure, he has missed some throws in both games this season. He hasn’t looked as sharp as he did last season. He doesn’t have the same connection yet. However, he is also playing two of the better defenses in football.

The entire team is to blame for the Cowboys’ disastrous loss to the Broncos this past Sunday. Aside from DeMarcus Lawrence, can you name somebody that didn’t have a bad outing? Even he was called for a 15-yard penalty that resulted in a four-point, and momentum, swing. Dak’s first interception should have been caught by Dez. He was playing the best secondary in the National Football League that also happens to have some guy named Von Miller. Oh yeah, and the Broncos completely shut down any life in the run game. Let’s not even get into the defense’s performance.

The Broncos have a history of making opposing quarterbacks look awful. Sure, some things have changed and Wade Phillips is in Los Angeles now, but Von Miller, Aqib Talib, and Chris Harris are who make the Broncos defense what it is. The Denver Post’s Nicki Jhabvala writes on just how dominant the Broncos are against opposing quarterbacks. Here’s just one example from last season:

The dance was fine. Engram should’ve just ended his celebration a second earlier. It will likely earn him a fine from the NFL too. Antonio Brown of the Pittsburgh Steelers got a $12,154 fine for twerking in the end zone last year, so Engram can probably expect a similar penalty.

The penalty pushed the Giants’ kickoff back 15 yards and after it went out of bounds, the Lions were set up near midfield.

Keep the celebrations coming, NFL players. Just don’t pick up penalties.jets_018

the Bucs could possibly face Case Keenum Jersey and a deliberately conservative Minnesota offense on Sunday.

The Bucs have ceded the second-lowest touchdown (per drive) rate to passers since the second half of last season along with the highest interception rate in the league over this sample. -J.M.

Some confusion over his role in the preseason saw Jack enter the year as a value pick in the later rounds of IDP drafts. Now that rewarding clarity has revealed a nearly every-down role for Jack, he’s racking up tackles and claims rare big-play upside for an emergent young defense. -J.M.

Limited Womens Ramon Foster Jersey To that end, and in an effort to leave no stone unturned in our quest for as many fantasy football titles as possible, we’re going to see what information can be gleaned from the collective fandom of the football-watching public.

Taking a look at the top-30 offensive players in terms of jersey sales over the past week, courtesy of Dick’s Sporting Goods, we find a pair of Cowboys in the top-five overall (Dak Prescott and Ezekiel Elliott) for the second straight week. Let’s face it. Whatever your personal rooting interest may be in the team, Cowboys fans are as loyal as they get — and widespread to boot. The guys with the star on their helmets are always going to overvalued in the eyes of their admirers.

Chris Ivory Youth Jersey But beyond that, you can actually intuit a lot about what actually took place on the field in Week 2. Case in point, Jameis Winston rose a whopping 58 spots from the end of Week 1, all the way up to No. 22 on the list. What changed in a week? Well, the Buccaneers were at home, so the huge uptick in the popularity of his 3 makes a lot of sense. Of course, the fact Tampa Bay won easily over Chicago was also likely to inspire the hometown fans to make some of these purchases.

Ryan Shazier Jersey was penalized for a helmet-first hit against QB DeShone Kizer Jersey

Johnson was re-signed late in the offseason as the potential top backup to David Johnson, but Kerwynn Williams and Andre Ellington have looked better overall for Arizona to move forward with them as the insurance committee.

Lewis is cheap to keep around, and his receiving role is important for depth with Julian Edelman on the shelf. Lewis and coaching staff favorite Brandon Bolden both should be safe in a crowded backfield thanks to what they can do on special teams.

The Steelers defense was called for three unnecessary roughness penalties, another area in which they’ve been accused of lacking discipline. The past two teams were No. 1 and No. 4 in that category; but on average Tomlin’s Steelers teams have ranked 16th.

Against the Browns, Ryan Shazier was penalized for a helmet-first hit against QB DeShone Kizer; Ed Bouchette of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette relayed to Tomlin that Shazier believed Kizer began his slide too late. The coach answered sharply with just three words.
Authentic Mens Jrue Holiday Jersey
We’re not going to overreact to the penalties. We’re simply going to acknowledge what they are. We’re going to continue doing what we’ve been doing, and that’s develop skill. We expect the penalties to go down as a consequence of that.
Authentic Mens Joe Barksdale Jersey
Bell, because of injury and suspension, has not to been able to duplicate the terrific 2014 season he had as a 22-year-old, second-year player. He’s still only 25, younger than David Johnson, and he’s out looking for bigger money after signing his franchise tag tender. He can both shoot toward 2,300 yards from scrimmage and set a career-high with high double-digit TDs, thanks to have more scoring opportunities in an even more explosive Pittsburgh offense.

NFL files motions asking for dismissal of Ezekiel Elliott Jersey court case

The legal battle surrounding Ezekiel Elliott is heating up even though an appeals hearing for his six-game suspension hasn’t reached a conclusion.

After Elliott and the NFLPA filed a petition Thursday to vacate his pending suspension for violating the NFL’s personal conduct policy, then accused the NFL of a league-orchestrated conspiracy in a restraining-order motion filed in federal court, the league hit back with legal filings of its own Monday night.

The NFL filed two petitions in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Texas asking for both the petition to vacate Elliott’s suspension and the temporary restraining order the NFLPA requested to be dismissed in order to prevent an injunction so it can enforce Elliott’s ban.

I was just having some fun, just trying to bring some energy, said Watt, who also had two sacks in his preseason debut. The guys love seeing a little celebration after a sack.

Watt’s interception with 1:29 left in the third stunted a promising Browns drive and negated Watt’s unnecessary roughness penalty on the previous play. Watt dipped into zone coverage and leapt for the interception, which he returned 17 yards. He said he was reminding himself not to fumble.

I was tired, Watt said.

The Steelers aren’t tired of Watt, who teammates say hustles relentlessly on every play.

Elite Mens Samson Ebukam Jersey Defensive end Cam Heyward said Watt’s football intelligence is translating.
Elite Mens Lamarcus Joyner Jersey
He understands what we need from him, and he goes out and executes, Heyward said. He’s a smart rusher. He doesn’t put himself in situations where he’s out of a play.

Jaguars’ Allen Robinson has torn ACL, will miss rest of season

Jacksonville Jaguars receiver Allen Robinson will miss the remainder of the 2017 season after suffering a torn left ACL in Sunday’s victory over the Houston Texans.

Robinson will have surgery in the coming weeks to repair the damage, coach Doug Marrone said Monday afternoon.

Robinson was hurt on the third play of Sunday’s game after he caught a 17-yard pass from Blake Bortles on third-and-2 to convert the first down. He was unable to walk to the sideline and was immediately tended to by the Jaguars’ medical staff before walking off the field to the locker room.

Critics of Los Angeles getting the NFL back said that the dream of football in Southern California would be more idyllic than the reality, and Week 1 seems to bear that out. Perhaps the justification is ticket price. Maybe fans don’t want to fork over premium prices to see the Rams play, let alone the Rams playing a Colts team without Andrew Luck.

The average price of a movie in L.A. is $8.17, on last check. It was cheaper to see an NFL game in person than catch the matinee of IT and still nobody went. There’s nothing more to say.

Maybe the Raiders making a break for Las Vegas will be the real geniuses of all this.bears_014-223x223

Cam Newton Authentic Jersey partners with rapper 2 Chainz in new Under Armour commercial

If Cam Newton’s going to do it, he’s going to do it bigger than Voletta Wallace’s son.

The 6-5, 245-pound Panthers quarterback is the flagship athlete for Under Armour’s football division. So, for the release of his signature C1N cross trainer, the 2015 NFL MVP enlisted the services of fellow ATLien rapper 2 Chainz, to set the commercial off like only the could. The result is one of the more ambitious marketing endeavors you’ll see from a pro football football player with the Hair Weave Killer providing the bars and Newton chiming in with his own commentary in between.

It’s not the first time Newton and 2 Chainz have gotten together to push some product. 2 Chainz’ music was featured in a 2016 Beats by Dre spot New was featured in.

The C1N trainers can be purchased wherever fine athletic footwear is sold for $120.

Quick story from the kids’ birthday party. One of the dads there had a thick orange cast on his hand. He was a bookish guy: slim, glasses, graying hair and gray beard neatly trimmed a Brooklyn Dad like many other Brooklyn Dads. One of the other dads gestured to his cast and said, What happened?

He sighed. I smashed it pretty bad at Burning Man. A long pause, and none of us interrupted it. He added: … as one does.

It’s maybe 10 seconds of analysis, but it’s like breathing pure oxygen after YEARS of Phil Simms leaking carbon monoxide into my home. It’s also only one game, and we haven’t had time to get tired of his vocal tics, but Tony Romo is already legitimately great in the booth.
Limited Womens Guy Lapointe Jersey
He jumped at the 26-yard line and landed at the 33: approximately 21 feet in the air, in football gear, as three different players tried to stop his forward movement. It’s no surprise he almost went to the Olympics for the long jump.

the Oakland Raiders made Derek Carr Jersey the highest-paid player in football history with a five-year

Keeping Cousins beyond 2017 is a long shot for Washington. Franchise tagging him for the third time is unrealistic with the number jumping to more than $34 million, and a bidding war in free agency will likely be too hard for the quarterback to pass up.

So what’s it going to take for Washington to keep him? A whole lot of money. A record-breaking amount.

A month ago, the Oakland Raiders made Derek Carr the highest-paid player in football history with a five-year, $125 million contract that comes with $70 million guaranteed. In August, the Lions and Matthew Stafford agreed to a $135 million deal with $92 million guaranteed.

The value of a franchise quarterback is mostly determined by whoever got paid last. Because Stafford got $27 million per year, the next gigantic deal for a quarterback will have to be a little more. And then it’ll be topped by the next contract after that.

Brock Lesnar is a bona fide freak of nature. He’s on the short list of athletes who have ever had an NFL contract and a professional MMA fight — a list that includes others like Herschel Walker, Bob Sapp and Brendan Schaub — but his story is much different from the rest.

A 6’3, 265-pound mountain of muscle, Lesnar was the 2000 NCAA Heavyweight Champion in wrestling during his time at the University of Minnesota. He parlayed that into a successful career in pro wrestling, becoming a WWE champion just two years later.

Game Womens Indiana Pacers Jersey In 2004, Lesnar decided to put aside his wrestling career and attempt to make it in the NFL, despite not playing football since high school. He earned a contract with the Minnesota Vikings and spent the preseason with the team, but didn’t make the final roster.

Ezekiel Elliott Authentic Jersey files lawsuit alleging NFL ‘conspiracy’ resulted in 6-game suspension

Ezekiel Elliott hasn’t heard the result of his appeal of a six-game suspension, but the Dallas Cowboys running back didn’t wait to file a lawsuit against the NFL with some heavy accusations.

According to an NFLPA lawsuit filed on Elliott’s behalf, the six-game suspension handed down by the NFL was the result of the most fundamentally unfair arbitral processes conceivable, via the Fort Worth Star-Telegram.

The likeliest scenario is that Haden plays the 2017 season with the Browns and then gets cut in spring when it can save Cleveland $11.2 million in space.

It has been a rough start to Erving’s career in the NFL, but it’s only year three and sometimes teams are convinced they can be the ones to realize the potential of a player that others weren’t able to.

Authentic Youth Jason Pominville Jersey Blaine Gabbert got traded to the 49ers. Greg Robinson got traded to the Lions. It happens.

So it wouldn’t be that crazy if a team gave up a late-round selection to acquire Erving, and try to get the most out of a player who has bounced between positions on the Browns offensive line.

Seven years ago, he became a hero in a single play at Alabama — drilling Texas quarterback Garrett Gilbert in the back in the final three minutes of the 2010 BCS National Championship Game. The sack forced a fumble that gave the ball back to the Crimson Tide and essentially put the game on ice.
