receiver Cecil Shorts III and safety from corse178's blog

NFL Nation reporters assess the biggest injuries across the league for Week 2. Vincent Kompany Jersey .AFC East | AFC North| AFC South | AFC West NFC East | NFC North | NFC South | NFC WestAFC EASTBuffalo BillsThe Bills listed Sammy Watkins as questionable for Thursdays game against the Jets, but he insists his sore foot wont keep him out of action. If he cant play, the Bills are likely to use a mix of Greg Salas and Marquise Goodwin in his place. Left tackle Cordy Glenn is out because of an ankle injury, and 2014 second-round pick Cyrus Kouandjio will receive his third career start in Glenns place. -- Mike RodakMiami DolphinsThe Dolphins put starting defensive end Mario Williams, who didnt finish last weeks game, in concussion protocol.?Williams didnt practice Wednesday, and his status is in question for Sundays game against New England. If Williams cannot play, Cameron Wake will get more reps in his place. Wake played just 29 snaps as a situational pass-rusher but would have to increase his workload with a shorter rotation at defensive end. -- James WalkerNew England PatriotsLinebacker Donta Hightower was not present at Wednesdays practice after he injured his knee on the second series of the opener. He played through the injury, but his status bears monitoring this week. Meanwhile, tight end Rob Gronkowski and left tackle Nate Solder, both of whom missed the season opener because of hamstring injuries, were limited participants in Wednesdays practice. Unless this changes in the next two days, it likely means they will be questionable for Sundays home opener against the Dolphins. If Gronkowski doesnt play, the Patriots will once again rely on Martellus Bennett as the top tight end?option; he played 69 of 71 offensive snaps in the season opener. -- Mike ReissNew York JetsThe Jets are in good shape for Thursday night against the Bills. The only two notable injuries are defensive end Muhammad Wilkerson (ankle, toe) and linebacker David Harris (shoulder), both of whom are questionable. The team expects both to play, though Harris will be less than 100 percent, especially in a short week. The injury?happened three weeks ago, and hes still undergoing treatment. He played every defensive snap in the opener. -- Rich CiminiAFC NORTHBaltimore RavensWide receiver Breshad Perriman is on the injury list again. Hes dealing with a minor calf issue, but it was enough to keep him sidelined Wednesday, and it could keep him out of Sundays game against the Browns. Without Perriman, the Ravens would rely even more on Mike Wallace in the deep passing game. Linebacker Elvis Dumervil remains out with a foot injury, and its unlikely hell play. With backup ZaDarius Smith also sidelined by an ankle injury, Baltimore might look to rookie Matt Judon to be an outside edge rusher. -- Jamison HensleyCincinnati BengalsTight end Tyler Eifert?said Wednesday that he would miss Sundays game against the Steelers. His ankle injury is still keeping him off the practice field. Cornerback Darqueze Dennard practiced fully for the first time, which indicates that he could return to the lineup Sunday. C.J. Uzomah, Eiferts replacement who had only one catch as a rookie, had a breakout game against the Jets, with a 54-yard pass reception. Dennard will likely man the slot upon his return.?-- Katherine TerrellCleveland BrownsJosh McCown takes over for Robert Griffin III at quarterback?with Griffin sidelined by a fracture in his shoulder. Im full speed ahead with Josh, coach Hue Jackson said. The only other injury of note was to backup safety Derrick Kindred, who was limited by an ankle on Wednesday. Kindred played well in relief of Ibraheim Campbell in the opener. -- Pat McManamonPittsburgh SteelersLinebacker Ryan Shazier missed Wednesdays practice because of a knee injury, and though it isnt considered serious, his status for the Bengals game is in doubt. Shazier, fresh off an interception in Week 1, is pushing hard behind the scenes. He doesnt want to miss any time. -- Jeremy FowlerAFC SOUTHHouston TexansBesides inside linebacker Brian Cushing and left tackle Duane Brown, who will definitely not play Sunday against the Chiefs, the Texans are relatively healthy. Coach Bill OBrien said Brown and Cushing are weeks away from returning. While Brown has been out, tackle Chris Clark has played in his place. He played every offensive snap Sunday and was solid against the Bears. After Cushing left Sundays game early in the first quarter, Max Bullough filled in at inside linebacker and improved as the game went along, registering five combined tackles, including one for a loss. The Texans have depth at linebacker, including Akeem Dent and Brian Peters. -- Sarah BarshopIndianapolis ColtsOutside linebacker Robert Mathis did not practice Wednesday because of a foot injury. He said on his weekly radio show on WNDE 1260 AM in Indianapolis that he has a hyperextended toe and is wearing a protective boot. The Colts cant afford to lose Mathis, who was held out of the preseason, because?they had only one sack in their Week 1 loss to Detroit. Trent Cole, who had three sacks last season, will likely start if Mathis doesnt play. -- Mike WellsJacksonville JaguarsRunning back Chris Ivory was released from the hospital Tuesday, but the Jaguars arent sure whether hell be available for Sundays game in San Diego. Ivory was hospitalized Sunday morning with what the team said was a general medical issue. Ivory did not practice Wednesday, though he is expected to hold a news conference to address his injury at some point this week. If Ivory does not play against the Chargers -- and thats the way its looking -- the Jaguars might give kick returner Corey Grant some reps on offense, in addition to Denard Robinson. Ivory is expected to return to the field at some point, but it looks like that will be next week at the earliest. -- Mike DiRoccoTennessee TitansOutside linebacker Derrick Morgan (left hamstring) was out Wednesday, but coach Mike Mularkey left open the possibility that Morgan could practice Thursday, and that would give him a chance to play. If the Titans are without him, David Bass and two rookies -- Kevin Dodd and Aaron Wallace -- will combine to fill in, and Mularkey expects production. The Titans were thin behind Morgan and Brian Orakpo last season, which was a big reason they spent the first pick of the second round on Dodd. -- Paul KuharskyAFC WESTDenver BroncosAll eyes are on wide receiver Demaryius Thomas, who is getting treatment on the left hip injury he suffered in the first quarter of the regular-season opener against the Panthers. Thomas was held out of Mondays practice, but he practiced on a limited basis Wednesday. Coach Gary Kubiak said Thomas took about a third of the reps in Wednesdays practice. Kubiak added that Thomas is on course to make it to Sunday. The Broncos could be helped by the fact that they played Thursday because that meant they could give Thomas treatment through the weekend. At Wednesdays practice, Thomas could be seen hitting his left hip after he ran at times. The Broncos have some depth issues overall, given that?Bennie Fowler, the teams No. 3 receiver in training camp, is still trying to come back from the fracture near his right elbow that he suffered in the preseason opener. -- Jeff LegwoldKansas City ChiefsRight guard Laurent Duvernay-Tardif has a high ankle sprain and is unlikely to be available when the Chiefs play the Texans on Sunday. The Chiefs would fill in with their veteran backup, Zach Fulton, who is a former starter, but the injury still comes at a bad time. Duvernay-Tardif had one of the best games of his career last week against the Chargers, and the Chiefs were hoping for offensive line stability, something they didnt have last season. Duvernay-Tardif was injured on the games final play, quarterback Alex Smiths overtime touchdown run. -- Adam TeicherOakland RaidersThe Raiders makeshift offensive line, which helped them to that epic comeback win in New Orleans, has questions all over the place, especially on the right side. While backup right tackle Austin Howard practiced fully Wednesday for the first time since he sprained his right ankle on Sept. 1, center Rodney Hudson (knee), left guard Gabe Jackson (left knee) and right tackles Menelik Watson (groin) and Matt McCants (left knee) all sat out practice. Hudson and Jackson are expected to play in Sundays home opener against the Falcons, but keep an eye on rookie guard/tackle Vadal Alexander, who was a healthy scratch Sunday in New Orleans. -- Paul GutierrezSan Diego ChargersJoey Bosa is still nursing a hamstring injury and did not practice Wednesday, which means the rookie defensive end will likely miss his second game when the Chargers play host to the Jaguars in the teams home opener on Sunday. Bosa has not participated in a padded practice since he signed his rookie deal on Aug. 29. Like Ive been saying, hes day-to-day, Chargers coach Mike McCoy said. I really cant give you a great update until hes out here in pads and hes out here practicing with the team. Then his odds will go way up, whether or not hes going to play in a game. But Im never going to rule him out until hes officially out. -- Eric D. WilliamsNFC EASTDallas CowboysLeft tackle Tyron Smith (stinger) and cornerback Orlando Scandrick (hamstring) were knocked from the opener because of injuries, but the Cowboys believe that because they were able to return to the game, there shouldnt be issues moving forward. Smiths injury was a reoccurrence of a training camp hit, and he is being fitted for a larger neck roll. Scandrick has battled through a hamstring injury before. Both players were able to go through full practices on Wednesday. -- Todd ArcherNew York GiantsThe Giants are shockingly healthy, even though they lost reserve linebacker J.T. Thomas for the season in the opener. All 22 starters are practicing this week and are expected to play. Linebacker?Jonathan Casillas hand might be the only concern, but that isnt serious. -- Jordan RaananPhiladelphia EaglesTight end Zach Ertz is expected to be sidelined this week after he suffered a rib displacement against the Browns. Its a dangerous situation with a displaced bone, coach Doug Pederson said. You are talking up around the neck and head area, so any type of blow again could do further damage to that. Thats why its a week-to-week deal to see how it heals and recovers. Trey Burton could have a fairly significant role in Ertzs absence. Starting cornerback Leodis McKelvin is also week-to-week because of a hamstring injury. Ron Brooks and rookie Jalen Mills will be called on to pull extra weight if he cant go. -- Tim McManusWashington RedskinsThe Redskins are a healthy team, and there isnt much concern, though defensive end Chris Baker was limited in practice because of rib and knee issues. Losing him would be a big blow, considering he is the teams best defensive lineman, but at this point, it appears hell play. -- John KeimNFC NORTHChicago BearsThe biggest injury concern for the Bears is still Kyle Longs left shoulder. Long is determined to play the entire year on a torn labrum, but he is often in visible pain during and immediately after games. Long deserves a ton of credit for attempting to play through such a difficult shoulder injury, but there is concern that eventually the shoulder will simply give out. Long is such an important member of the offensive line. Its hard to envision the Bears running the football successfully without him?at right guard, where he has been voted to multiple Pro Bowls. -- Jeff DickersonDetroit LionsDeAndre Levy missed practice Wednesday and was the only player not at least partially available for Detroit. If Levy were unable to play Sunday, it would leave a massive hole at linebacker. The teams depth there would be thin, and?Kyle Van Noy or rookie Antwione Williams would likely have to fill in. The play of both would be a drop-off from one of the best coverage linebackers in the NFL. -- Michael RothsteinGreen Bay PackersCornerback Sam Shields sustained his second concussion in less than nine months late in Sundays win over the Jaguars. It was his fourth since 2011. He missed a month last time he was concussed, but the time before that, he played the following week. The Packers were so thin at cornerback on Wednesday -- rookie Josh Hawkins (hamstring) was also out -- that practice-squad receiver Herb Walker had to line up on defense. -- Rob DemovskyMinnesota VikingsLeft tackle Matt Kalil was seen leaving the teams training facility in a T-shirt and shorts just before practice started Wednesday, and Kalil was listed as a non-participant because of the hip injury that has bothered him for a couple weeks. Kalil said at the end of training camp that he was simply resting up some little things, but given the tackles injury history -- and the task the Vikings face Sunday night against a blitz-heavy Packers defense -- it bears watching what the Vikings do with Kalil the rest of the week. -- Ben GoesslingNFC SOUTHAtlanta FalconsThe Falcons top two wide receivers, Julio Jones and Mohamed Sanu, are dealing with ankle injuries. Both were limited during Wednesdays practice, as the Falcons continued preparation for Sundays matchup with the Raiders. Jones told ESPN hes going to be fine, while Sanu said Im good when asked about his ankle. Another key offensive player, running back?Devonta Freeman, was limited Wednesday by a quad injury. -- Vaughn McClureCarolina PanthersRunning back Jonathan Stewart showed up on the injury report with a sprained ankle that coach Ron Rivera expressed no concern about. Stewart isnt sure how he suffered it. Safety Dean Marlowe (hamstring) was limited in practice, but he appears close to being ready to give the Panthers much-needed depth at the position. -- David NewtonNew Orleans SaintsThe Saints know they wont have top cornerback?Delvin Breaux for about six weeks, which is a huge loss, considering theyre about to face Odell Beckham Jr. and the Giants. The biggest issue this week is whether left tackle?Terron Armstead can get closer to 100 percent with his quad injury. Armstead will play, but he admitted to shaking off some rust last week. He is one of the Saints two or three best players and will face a tough challenge against Giants pass-rusher?Olivier Vernon. -- Mike TriplettTampa Bay BuccaneersThis isnt really a question -- its definitive that defensive end Jacquies Smith is done for the season because of a torn ACL. He led the team with four sacks this preseason and was the top pass-rushing defensive end the past two seasons. Although the Bucs have more of a rotation going along the defensive line, this still hurts. How much? That depends on who steps in. Theyll have William Gholston for their base defense, but in terms of a pass-rusher? Noah Spence didnt line up on the left at all during camp. Hes an option, as is Howard Jones. Also?keep an eye out for DaVonte Lambert. -- Jenna LaineNFC WESTArizona CardinalsThe biggest injury concern for the Cardinals this week is right guard Evan Mathis, who sustained a mid-foot sprain in the second quarter Sunday night. He didnt practice Wednesday, and coach Bruce Arians listed Mathis as day-to-day and added that the team?will see how Mathis practices Thursday, if hes able to take the field. With defensive end?Frostee Rucker out two to three weeks because of an MCL injury, Ed Stinson has been taking his snaps, and?Rodney Gunter has been working at right end. -- Josh WeinfussLos Angeles RamsThe Rams need as much help as they can get at wide receiver, but it doesnt look like theyll get it immediately. Nelson Spruce (knee) and Pharoh Cooper (shoulder) were both inactive for Week 1 and probably wont be available in Week 2. Rams coach Jeff Fisher said Spruce is probably a week or two away. He has yet to comment on Cooper, who injured himself while making an acrobatic catch in the third preseason game, but shoulder injuries take time. Both can be major assets in the intermediate passing game that suits Case Keenums skill set. -- Alden GonzalezSan Francisco 49ersThe 49ers came out of the season opener relatively healthy, with only two additions to the injury report Wednesday. One guy to keep an eye on is defensive lineman Arik Armstead. He has been battling a shoulder issue, and that limited him in the preseason and in Wednesdays practice. The Niners used him mostly on passing downs in the opener, but theyre hoping to work him in more as he continues to manage the injury. He was effective in a fairly small sample size against the Rams, and the 49ers are hoping more reps mean a breakout season for the 2015 first-round pick. -- Nick WagonerSeattle SeahawksRussell WIlsons right ankle will be in the spotlight Sunday against the Rams. Wilson suffered a sprain last week against the Dolphins, but he practiced Wednesday, and offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell said he expects the quarterback to be full go this weekend. If Wilson is limited from a mobility standpoint on Sunday, Bevell will have to adjust the game plan accordingly. But barring a setback, the team is counting on Wilson to start. He has never missed a game in his NFL career. -- Sheil Kapadia Kevin De Bruyne Jersey Manchester City . -- About a third of the way through the regular season, the Washington Wizards are at . Sergio Aguero Jersey Manchester City . On Mar. 16, coming off a "fight of the year" performance at UFC 154 the previous November, St-Pierre faced Nick Diaz at UFC 158 in what would be his eighth defence of the welterweight title. Using his superior athleticism, St-Pierre cruised to a five round, unanimous decision victory setting up a much-anticipated title defence against number one contender Johny Hendricks. http://www.manchestercityshopuk.com/sergio-aguero-man-city-shirt.html . Nigeria beat surprise package Ethiopia 2-0 in the second leg of their playoff for a comfortable 4-1 aggregate victory. Victor Moses converted a 20th-minute penalty after an Ethiopian handball, and Victor Obinna made certain of Nigerias place in Brazil with his powerful free kick in the 82nd at UJ Esuene Stadium. HOUSTON -- The Houston Texans activated star defensive end J.J. Watt from the physically unable to perform list Saturday, and waived 18 players.Watt, a three-time NFL Defensive Player of the Year, missed the entire preseason after having back surgery in July. He has started every game in his five-year career and is expected to start next Sundays opener against Chicago.Coach Bill OBrien said Friday that Watt was doing much better than a couple of weeks ago and that it looks looks decent for him to play against the Bears. Watt hasnt spoken to the media in a month, but when he did talk to reporters at the start of training camp he noted that he doesnt necessarily need preseason work to play in Week 1.In 2012, I missed all of training camp and didnt have a problem there, he said on July 31. I dont see this being a problem. I dont plan on missing my first game now, but I cant promise it. Im going to do everything I can.Also activated from the PUP listt was veteran offensive tackle Duane Brown, who has been rehabbing a torn quadriceps. Manchester City Custom Jersey. Brown probably isnt as far along in his recovery as Watt and could miss Week 1.Brown, Houstons left tackle for the last eight seasons, said last week hes feeling better, but wouldnt put a percentage on his chances of playing against Chicago.Were not going to do numbers. Just taking it a day at a time, he said. Thats something I dont want to rush on. I want to make sure Im Duane Brown that Ive become over the years when Im out there.Two veterans were released outright: receiver Cecil Shorts III and safety Antonio Allen.Running backs Akeem Hunt and Kenny Hilliard and tackle Jeff Adams were among other players waived by Houston to get the roster down to 53 players.---AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and www.twitter.com/AP-NFL 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 ' ' '
