Detroit Lions defensive end Ziggy Ansah is not expected to play in Sunday’s game against the Pittsburgh Steelers. Ansah is dealing with an ankle injury.
Elite Kids Mike Ditka Jersey
Ansah suffered a high ankle sprain in Week 8’s win over the Dallas Cowboys and hasn’t been able to play since then. The Lions had a bye in Week 9, but Ansah was still not ready to practice, wearing a walking boot for several days. Detroit held him out of last week’s game against the Chicago Bears. There is no set timetable for his return.
The Lions took Ansah with the No. 5 overall pick in the 2017 NFL Draft. Considered one of the rawest pass rushers in the first round, Ansah has had inconsistent production in his rookie season. Through eight games, he recorded three sacks, two forced fumbles and 18 tackles. Devin Taylor and Willie Young will fill in for Ansah at his starting spot until he’s healthy.
Our quarterback has to be a thrower, not a runner, Babers said. It鈥檚 not a wishbone offense. It鈥檚 not Navy鈥檚 offense. We do want to run the football, but our quarterbacks need to be NFL quarterbacks. They need to be guys that, after they have a fantastic college career, they go to the pros and they have a pro career.
Authentic Youth Andre Johnson Jersey
Under Babers, EIU鈥檚 Jimmy Garoppolo threw for over 5,000 yards and 53 touchdowns as a senior against only nine interceptions. He would finish in the top three of FCS鈥?most meaningful statistical categories and lead the Panthers to FCS鈥?most prolific offense. Garoppolo now backs up Tom Brady and appears in major NFL trade rumors, with the assumption he could be a franchise QB.
Now, all that being said, if they do have legs that can get them out of trouble, that鈥檚 an advantage. But that鈥檚 the No. 1 thing. The No. 1 thing: has to be able to touch the entire football field; 53 and a third wide, 120 yards long. They鈥檝e got to be able touch it all.
The only real significant injury affecting St. Louis happens to be sidelining the player the Rams can least afford to lose. Bradford will miss a significant number of games for the second time in his young career, and the timetable for his return next year is not yet known. But, some players have managed to come back from ACL tears in less than a year.
The veteran Clemens will likely finish out the season as starter, since the Rams have no other options, and he has eight touchdowns compared to 15 interceptions over an eight-year career.
St. Louis will instead try to rely on defensive standouts like Robert Quinn and Chris Long. Quinn is among the league leaders with 10 sacks on the year.
“Girls,” Gronk asks, “what would you like to be called tonight? Ladies?” At least he’s asking.
With the girls/ladies now properly liquored up, we make our way out onto the Harvard football field. That’s right, the same Harvard football field where many football greats such as [mumbles] have played. The music is blasting. Listening to Katy Perry gets me all pumped up for the football. Let’s football. I’m feeling footbally now.
That’s right, the same Harvard football field where many football greats such as [mumbles] have played.
The event info says that we will be split up into teams and “individual groups will be small to assure that each participant gets maximum instruction from the top football coaches in the Boston area.” The “top football coaches in the Boston area” turn out to be football coaches who work for ProCamps, the company running the event. ProCamps is a company that usually only runs events with kids, not inebriated adult women. We are learning from children’s coaches. Only the best for us ladies.
Authentic Youth Kevin Faulk Jersey The Miami Dolphins are set to host the San Diego Chargers for a Week 11 matchup on Sunday. Miami (4-5) is coming off an embarrassing loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Monday Night Football, while San Diego (4-5) recently fell to the AFC West rival Denver Broncos in a relatively close game.
The Bengals are still in the driver’s seat in the AFC North, but their lead in the division has shrunk in recent weeks. If they lost at home to Cleveland this week, the Bengals would hold just a half-game lead over the Browns, with the Ravens also lurking not far behind.
Limited Youth L. P. Ladouceur Jersey The Browns and Bengals have had similar success against the spread this season. Cleveland is 5-4 ATS while Cincinnati is 5-4-1. The Bengals, however, have been much better at home, going 4-0 against the spread in games played at Paul Brown Stadium. Cleveland is 2-2 ATS on the road.
Cleveland hasn’t beaten Cincinnati much recently — just five times in the last 18 meetings — but the Browns have fared well against the spread when playing the Bengals. Cleveland is 6-2-1 ATS in its last nine game against Cincinnati.
The total for Sunday’s game opened at 41.5 points. The over may be the best bet, if recent history proves to be true once again. The over has hit in four of the last five meetings between the two teams. Offensively, the two teams combine to average 42.51 points per game while allowing 40.49 PPG.
Jay Cutler was released Thursday by the Bears at the start of free agency after spending eight seasons with the team.
A few hours later, Cutler sent a message to the Chicago fans who supported him throughout all the seasons:
I would like to first thank the city of Chicago and its passionate fans for a memorable eight years. I grew up in Indiana rooting for the Bears as a kid, so it was an honor to wear the Bears uniform and play quarterback at Soldier Field for my favorite childhood team.
Chicago is the city where I met my wonderful wife Kristen [Cavallari]. I have been fortunate to have three beautiful children here. Our family will leave Chicago with great memories and relationships on and off the field. We look forward to the next chapter in our lives and wish the best to Bear fans everywhere.
Some of his former teammates sent some love in return. Kyle Long and Zach Miller both posted messages on Instagram about the time they spent with the quarterback.
Limited Youth Richard Dent Jersey
Womens Dannell Ellerbe Jersey It’s going to cost a lot, but that’s the chance you take in bringing this franchise something more than 9-7. Romo will make a lot of headlines — he always does — and that’s an oft-injured quarterback who turns 37 in April and is 2-4 in the postseason. Dallas also likely will ask for in-state overpayment if this move comes via trade.
It’s still a chance Houston should take. It could be the difference in who has the best chance to compete with New England and Pittsburgh in 2017, and perhaps beyond. If they don’t do it, Denver might. They did that with Peyton Manning. Will Houston sit and watch the Broncos do it again?
Christian McCaffrey is also on the rise in Mayock is latest rankings. Mayock had McCaffrey ranked third previously, behind Florida State is Dalvin Cook and Fournette, but a strong combine helped push McCaffrey up to the No. 2 spot. Cook fell from No. 1 to No. 3.
Womens Chris Capuano Jersey
Joe Mixon, a controversial prospect because he punched a woman in the face, was ranked fifth on Mayock is initial running backs list. In the latest version, Mayock has removed Mixon completely from the running back rankings, shifting him instead to a Special Exceptions section.
Womens Cory James Jersey
Rounding out the running backs rankings are Tennessee is Alvin Kamara at No. 4 and Oklahoma is Samaje Perine at No. 5.
The combine and pro days didn’t change Mayock is outlook at all on the rankings for quarterbacks or offensive tackles. There were shake-ups in every other position:
Bastian Schweinsteiger is a very good player. He is probably more intelligent than any player in MLS and there aren’t many players with better technique. His half-season away from playing regularly might have let him heal up. There is no reason to believe that a healthy Schweinsteiger wouldn’t be very effective, even if he is put into a position he is never played before. And if he plays in front of Dax McCarty and Juninho, he can probably get away with not running very often.
But while Schweinsteiger is an excellent player who might deserve the benefit of the doubt, his employers do not. The Fire haven’t won a playoff game since 2009. The owner who signed off on the Schweinsteiger acquisition has also inked failed DPs Nery Castillo, Sherjill MacDonald, Federico Puppo, Juan Luis Anangonó, and Kennedy Igboananike. They traded for DPs Gilberto, Freddie Ljungberg, and álvaro Fernández, who all struggled in a Fire shirt.
There’s only one recent situation where pegging a longtime assistant for the top job has worked swimmingly — when Jimbo Fisher took over for Bobby Bowden at Florida State.
That leaves Syracuse with a what-if and an even bigger question about what happens now with Boeheim. The surefire Hall of Famer will turn 73 next season and has been with the Orange in some aspect for all but three seasons since 1963. He’s told the press his plan to retire after the 2017-18 season multiple times, but Hopkins’ departure could throw a wrench in that proposal.
Instead, he’ll take over a Washington program that’s been high on talent and low on wins in recent years. Romar’s tenure with the Huskies was dotted with elite recruits and NBA talent like Markelle Fultz, Marquese Chriss, Terrence Ross, and Tony Wroten. The most those players were able to show for their brief collegiate careers was a trip to the NIT — or in Fultz’s case, some extra vacation time in March.
Hopkins has a track record of recruiting useful players like Jason Hart and Gerry McNamara in upstate New York, but that’s a far cry from the five-star prospects Romar lured to the Emerald City.
His first job will be to try to keep one of the nation’s top prospects in the fold. Michael Porter, a five-star recruit from Seattle and Romar’s Godson, gave UW his bond back in November. With the abrupt change of management taking place last week, he reversed course and named Missouri his new top choice — though he hasn’t gone as far as to offer a verbal commitment to the program.
Replacing Romar’s impact on the recruiting trail will be tough. Doing it on the court won’t be as challenging. Washington bottomed out at 9-22 in 2016-17, forcing the veteran coach’s ouster. Hopkins will have to work out a potential player exodus now that his well-liked predecessor is gone. But he’ll have the chance to work with a clean slate at a Power 5 program that’s a proven destination for top talent.
Kevin Keatts won¡¯t have to go too far from UNC Wilmington for his new job, as he¡¯s been hired as the head coach of NC State, according to ESPN¡¯s Jeff Goodman.
UNC Wilmington gave Virginia a run for its money in the NCAA tournament before falling, 76-71. Keatts spent three years as the Seahawks¡¯ coach, making the NCAA tournament in two of his three seasons. Prior to his tenure there, he was an assistant under Rick Pitino at Louisville.

Elite Arron Afflalo Jersey Dallas at Detroit left the group divided. The Lions lost their first home game of the season last week to the Bengals, but it was only their third game in Detroit so far. The Cowboys won their first road game of the season in Week 7, beating the Eagles in Philadelphia.Three panelists picked the Raiders over the Steelers. Both teams are trying to get their third win of the season.
Four of five picked the Patriots to get things back on track against the Dolphins this week. A Miami win will keep the standings tight in the AFC East, setting up a scramble through the second half of the season.
Joel and I tied for the best record on last week’s picks, going 10-5. David was 9-6, and Jason and Stephen were 8-7.
OK, for those who didn¡¯t see any of this: Jelle Van Damme got sent off on Sunday for accumulating yellow cards during incidents where he didn¡¯t make contact with anyone. His first yellow card was for dissent after a bad foul call and his second for intending to foul even though he didn¡¯t actually catch any of David Guzman. The LA Galaxy¡¯s social media team had some fun with this, setting Timbers players going down ¡ª in their opinion, diving ¡ª to ¡°Shooting Stars¡± and putting them in funny situations.

By adjusted efficiency, the Pac-12 was the worst of college basketball’s power conferences this year. More than one-fifth of all Pac-12 games this year have been decided by 20 points or more, a trend of blowouts that reflects the huge gap between the top of the conference and the bottom. Compared to other conferences, few games have been close at the end.
There’s been relatively little drama. If the final features some combination of Arizona, UCLA, and Oregon, we might see some. UCLA and Oregon played a thriller in December, and Arizona and UCLA played a tight one in February. There’s a good chance the first few days of this tournament are boring, but we could get power-on-power at the end.
The upper-middle tier of the conference is holding firm, with Virginia Tech, Louisville, and Virginia all appearing to be tournament-bound. Virginia’s defense remains stout, if its ability to score has become something of a liability. The Cavaliers own the conference’s second-to-last scoring average with just 66.6 points per outing.
Louisville was again a team to watch heading into the ACC tourney after Rick Pitino’s club churned out early-season wins over Purdue, Kentucky, and Indiana. Breakout star Donovan Mitchell has been stellar this year, averaging 15.8 points and 4.7 rebounds per game. He’s long and athletic, and if the Cardinals make a deep push into the Dance this year, Mitchell will be there, pulling off impressive acrobatics.
Still, the Cardinals couldn’t hold the line against Duke in Thursday’s quarterfinal round action, and they’ll have to wait to see where they’re seeded on Selection Sunday.
The ACC tournament will be a standard 15-team bracket Tuesday through Saturday this week. The top four seeds receive byes into the quarterfinal round, and the bottom six seeds duke it out in the opening round. The championship final is Saturday night at 9 p.m.
