Aaron Rodgers had screws inserted to repair broken collarbone

Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers has confirmed that screws were inserted in his fractured right collarbone during surgery Oct. 19 in Southern California.

In a taped appearance on TBS’ “Conan” that airs Thursday night, Rodgers told host Conan O’Brien that doctors used 13 screws to repair his collarbone, which he injured during the first quarter of the Packers’ 23-10 loss to the Minnesota Vikings on Oct. 15.

12.5 percent. The Eagles are making it difficult for everyone else in the NFC East right now, but Dallas still has two games in hand against them and five total division games left. The Cowboys’ 12.5 percent chance of winning the division might seem low, but it could look much different in a few weeks.

77.8 percent. A win over the Rams in Week 5 has Seattle in the driver’s seat for the NFC West, and the two teams won’t meet again until Week 15. The Seahawks continue to win with defense, allowing a league-best 15.7 points per game this season.

Charles’ saga over the last two years provided a roller coaster of emotions for the 30-year-old running back, who rushed for 7,260 yards, added 2,457 receiving and scored 63 touchdowns over nine seasons in Kansas City. Charles tore the ACL in his right knee in October 2015, costing him the bulk of his season. He returned in 2016, but knee inflammation limited him to only 12 carries in three games.

Several Ravens players also expressed their frustration with the hard hit.

“If you mess with one of us, you got to mess with all of us. We went out there and gave everything we had for Joe, the team, the coaches and Baltimore,” Ravens defensive tackle Brandon Williams said. “We had to let everybody know that you can’t just mess with one of us and know expect to get hit 53 more times.”

Ravens offensive lineman Ronnie Stanley said Alonso should have been ejected.

“For a hit like that, I think that’s the right call for that,” Stanley said.

Authentic Kids Marc Gasol Jersey It was pretty clear on film that you had better at least be trying to double Mack on passing downs, if at all possible. Even then it won’t always save your ass.

Two sacks, six more tackles (seven counted on the stat sheet), one hurry, and two other hits on the quarterback is what I saw on film. That’s what I call dominance. Khalil Mack’s performance on Sunday, while not quite enough to secure the victory , was definitely worthy of Hoss of the Week honors for Week 4.

So, I went back to Dr. (James) Andrews and told him, ‘Hey, they are not seeing what you are seeing’ and I feel like I have no hope, Charles said. He said, ‘I worked on your knee. I know your knee. You just have to build the quad muscle stronger. You’ll be like Jamaal then.’ Dr. Andrews really gave me hope. He built my hope.

Authentic Kids New York Islanders Jersey Payton said his question entering this season was not if the Saints defense would be better but how?

His team has won three straight with a defense that has 9 interceptions, 2 fumble recoveries and 16 sacks. The aggressiveness, takeaways and overall production are the how.

The Saints have always known they can score points.

The Vikings quarterback didn’t take part in practice Thursday as he continues to rehab from a knee injury.

According to the Minneapolis Star Tribune, Thursday’s workout in southwest London was just a walk-through because of unfavorable field conditions. While it’s encouraging that Bradford traveled with the team, his availability remains in question after he also missed practice Wednesday.

Bradford led Minnesota to victory over the Saints in Week 1 before missing the team’s second, third and fourth games. He then started Week 5 against the Bears but was pulled at halftime. An MRI exam afterward revealed no new damage to Bradford’s knee, but team trainer Eric Sugarman said the QB is dealing with wear and tear in his knee joint.

Meanwhile, quarterback Case Keenum is expected to make his third consecutive start as the Vikings aim to get Teddy Bridgewater back from the physically unable to perform list as early as Week 10.

WHAT’S MADDENING ABOUT Cousins is, there are times when he can turn even the most hardened football cynic into a believer.

Cousins couldn’t make deep throws to the outside of the field when he came into the league, and when he tried to put some extra mustard on shorter passes to prove he had arm strength, veterans like Moss told him to stay in his lane and not try to become something he was not. I remember Kirk threw me a ball in practice once, and he threw it so hard it kind of messed up my finger, Moss says. I said, ‘That’s not you. You throw a catchable ball.’

What the hell is this Kevin Hogan Jersey pick-six?

Cleveland Browns quarterback Kevin Hogan is making his first NFL start Sunday, and if he continues to play like he has so far against the Houston Texans, it might be his last.

After falling into a 10-3 hole, Hogan spotted the Texans another touchdown by throwing the easiest pick-six you’ll ever see.

Then, three plays later, they ran a fake punt with Marquette King that — to be plain — was not good.

Game Mens Lonzo Ball Jersey To make matters worse, King got an unsportsmanlike penalty after he threw the football at the Broncos’ Andy Janovich. King was later fined for it:

Prior to this play, King was having a fine afternoon. He’s a passionate player, so for him to get a frustration penalty just moments after the team’s quarterback was injured probably shouldn’t be all that surprising.

He spends a lot of time in the quarterback room trying to understand how the game is supposed to be played, King said. He watches film to the point where he can understand other peoples’ tendencies. He’s one of the first people in the facility, and one of the last people to leave.

King and the Raiders will hope Carr returns soon, but the fake punt probably wasn’t the way to go in that moment. The Raiders ended up losing, 16-10.

As I’ve mentioned in the past, history suggests that both players and teams alike will generally turn about 40 to 45 percent of their quarterback knockdowns into sacks. The Saints were third in the league last season with 106 knockdowns of opposing quarterbacks, but they generated only 30 sacks. That 28.3 percent conversion rate was the lowest in the league; if they’d sacked quarterbacks at a league-average rate relative to their knockdown total, they would have racked up 41 sacks.

Broncos QB Trevor Siemian returned to ‘Sunday Night Football’ after leaving with a shoulder injury

Trevor Siemian suffered an injury trying to make a tackle after an interception and now the Denver Broncos quarterback has gone to the locker room to be evaluated. He was replaced in the game by Brock Osweiler just before halftime, but was able to return to the field in the second half.

The injury is a left shoulder problem and the Broncos declared Siemian questionable to return.

Siemian, 25, has had a strong start to the 2017 season with seven touchdowns and four interceptions en route to a 3-1 record in the first quarter of the year. He was the starter in 14 games for the Broncos in 2016, but missed one game in October due to a A/C joint sprain in his left shoulder. He eventually had surgery in January to repair the problem.

A good portion of the blame for last Sunday’s 35-30 home loss to the Los Angles Rams can be put on the Dallas defense, which allowed 412 yards and 35 points.

Green Bay is a 3-point road favorite in Minnesota at sportsbooks monitored by OddsShark.com. Over their last 14 games, the Packers are 10-4 ATS.

Determined to avoid the slow start that plagued the team last year, this year’s Packers team has been focused since the start of the season. With another fourth-quarter drive led by Aaron Rodgers, the Packers secured a 35-31 road win over the Dallas Cowboys and improved to 4-1 SU and 3-2 ATS on the year in the process.

Rodgers leads all quarterbacks in passing touchdowns this season with 13 and ranks fourth in passing yards with 1,367 through his first five games of 2017.

The Packers have dominated the entire NFC North division over the last decade as is indicated by their individual records against each team. Green Bay is 11-3-1 SU and 9-6 ATS in its last 15 games against Minnesota per the OddsShark NFL Database.

Packers coach McCarthy quiets free agent QB talk after Aaron Rodgers Jersey injury

Green Bay Packers head coach Mike McCarthy appeared to put to bed talk of them signing a free agent quarterback after Aaron Rodgers suffered a broken collarbone in their loss to the Minnesota Vikings.

The Patriots are 4-2, but they’ll have to do something to fix their defense if they hope to defend their Super Bowl title. After Jets quarterback Josh McCown threw for 354 yards in the 24-17 loss, the Patriots are the first team in NFL history to allow a 300-yard passer through the first six games of a season.

The New England victory gave Tom Brady his 187th win during the regular season for the most all-time by a quarterback.

Chiefs running back Kareem Hunt was bottled up for just 21 rushing yards on nine carries, but did have five receptions for 89 yards to give him 110 yards from scrimmage. Hunt is the first rookie running back ever with over 100 yards from scrimmage in his first six NFL games.

Sunday’s slate of Week 6 games may not be the most inspiring in NFL history, but there is still plenty of intrigue.

Few had the Patriots’ visit to the Jets as a battle between two first-placed teams, and the surprise surrounding the 3-2 Jets will only increase if they are able to stun New England.

Brandin Cooks Youth Jersey The Vikings’ NFC North clash with the Packers looks like a must-win for Minnesota, while the pick of action arguably comes as the Chiefs host the Steelers.

Jared Goff’s improvement has been exaggerated, with the Rams quarterback producing sub-par showings in each of the last two games. The Jags have the secondary to take advantage and points should be at a premium in this one.

Aaron Rodgers Jersey crushed the Packers, and it also shook up the landscape of the NFC.

The 21-year-old was sat down in favor of Kevin Hogan last week after his abysmal performance in Week 5. As a result, the Browns started Hogan in their matchup with the Texans.

Chiefs quarterback Alex Smith is not going to let the late hit by Steelers free safety Mike Mitchell go. He lit into him once again Tuesday calling out his extremely late hit.

I’m not a dirty player, Mitchell told the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review. I’m not out here trying to take his legs out. It’s just one of those things you don’t want to see in a football game. It’s unfortunate that it happened because it ended up kind of flipping momentum in the field in a significant way.

Considering Luck was cleared to practice two weeks ago for the first time since having shoulder surgery in January and that he was throwing the ball last week, this isn’t good news for Colts fans.

Divisional matchups include Jets-Dolphins, Bengals-Steelers and Cardinals-Rams. With a win, the Dolphins could begin to challenge the Patriots at the top of the AFC East. The Steelers are on top of the AFC North, but the Bengals can make up some ground if they win Sunday. If the Cardinals can claim a win over the Rams, the NFC West will be wide open.

Dolphins LB Kiko Alonso Jersey hilariously carried Falcons WR Taylor Gabriel Jersey down the field

Where exactly was Dolphins linebacker Kiko Alonso taking Falcons wide receiver Taylor Gabriel?

That was the question after Alonso hilariously picked up Gabriel and carried him several yards down the field during the Dolphins’ 20-17 upset over the Falcons on Sunday.

ESPN planned to follow a similar playbook for Monday night’s telecast of Colts-Titans, sources say.

The TV networks traditionally don’t show the anthem except before the Super Bowl and other special occasions. But given news interest about which players were standing and which were kneeling, the networks changed their policies this season.

NBC’s first TV shot of the 2017 season showed cornerback Marcus Peters sitting out the anthem before the Chiefs-Patriots Week 1 season opener. ESPN showed player protests for social justice in Weeks 3 and 4. All of the NFL’s TV partners showed the anthem live in Week 3 when hundreds of players, coaches and owners kneeled or linked arms on the field.

Game Womens Stephon Gilmore Jersey You can’t blame the NFL TV partners for being worried. Through Week 5, the NFL TV numbers were down 7.2 percent, according to Nielsen data. That drop came on top of a 7 percent downturn last season. Through Week 5 of the 2017 season, NFL games averaged 15.2 million viewers, according to Nielsen. That’s down 7.42 percent from an average of 16.371 million viewers through the same period of the 2016 season, and 18 percent down from the average of 18.438 million viewers through the first five weeks of the 2015 season.

Brown sees all the potential that the others do in Tatum, but really appreciates the way he handles all the promotion.

“First off, he’s really talented and super humble,” Brown said. “Me and him connected a lot because we get along and kind of see things the same way. It’s amazing how cool and humble he is. He’s very to himself and, at the same time, he’s a great kid, great to be around.

“He just has that mindset that he wants to get better. He competes and sometimes we pick each up other up when we’re slacking. That’s good because we’re just going to keep pushing ourselves to be better and that’s what I admire about him. He has that mindset, and not a lot of people in our generation do.”

Make no mistake, Tatum is kind of a big deal. The Duke product will earn $5.6 million this year; only Boston’s star trio of Gordon Hayward ($29.7 million), Al Horford ($27.7) and Irving ($18.9) will earn more.

Walton did make it clear, though, that Ball is considered day-to-day, adding that “I assume he will be back” by the season opener against the LA Clippers on Oct. 19.

“I hope not, but yeah, that’s a possibility,” Walton said when asked if Ball could miss the rest of the preseason. “It is different with every player. He is new to the team, so we’ve got to see how long these types of injuries take him to come back from. We’d like to have him back, but again, we are not going to rush him back just to try to get him out there.”

The Australians were not intimidated despite facing some of the NBA’s biggest stars, including guard Russell Westbrook who just signed a $(US) 205-million contract extension and new All-Star recruits Carmelo Anthony and Paul George.

United, led by Casper Ware’s 20 points, six rebounds and three assists and Boone’s 15 points and nine rebounds, including four offensive, remained close throughout the game and held leads for stretches.

Kuechly rushed from the right side of the Eagles line as Blount was dropped for a 1-yard loss on a run to the left. Kuechly sat on the turf at Bank of America Stadium before slowing getting up and being walked to the sideline by trainers.

He was checked on the sideline before jogging to the locker room before halftime. He then remained in the locker room at the start of the second half, when the Panthers announced he was being evaluated for a concussion.

It’s disturbing news for the All-Pro linebacker, who has missed nine games the last two seasons because of concussions.

The poor air conditions in the Bay Area have led many high schools to cancel games on Friday. The Raiders are still scheduled to play the Chargers Sunday in Oakland.

We’re seeing the worst air quality ever recorded in many parts of the Bay Area, Tom Flannigan, a spokesperson for the Bay Area Air Quality Management District, told the Chronicle. The entire Bay Area population is likely being affected by the smoke.
