Ender Inciarte Jersey/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal"> .For the last two years, my lawyers have advised me against speaking publicly about an incident that occurred very shortly after I arrived in Norman, Mixon wrote in a statement sent to The Oklahoman. Today, I want to say what everyone deserves to hear from me about this matter: I am sorry.I apologize to Amelia Molitor and the friends who were with her that night. I apologize to my teammates, coaches, the University of Oklahoma and its fans. I apologize to my family and friends. I realize I let a lot of people down. I apologize to all those I disappointed or hurt.After an altercation between the two at a sandwich shop near Oklahomas campus, Mixon punched Molitor, fracturing four bones in her face. Mixon was eventually charged with a misdemeanor and suspended for the 2014 season.Mixon suggested in his statement that racial slurs were hurled at him, which he says initiated the incident.I was not drinking, he said. I have never had a drink in my life. At the end of the night, a group of apparently drunk people started harassing us. Some of my teammates were wise enough to leave. I did not, and I am sorry.Molitor later sued Mixon in civil court for negligence, willful and wanton misconduct, and intentional infliction of emotional distress. On Monday, an Oklahoma City federal judge dismissed two-thirds of the lawsuit, according to The Oklahoman, leaving only her claim of intentional infliction of emotional distress.Mixon is second in the country in all-purpose yards this season for the Sooners, who are ranked seventh the country. Nick Markakis Jersey/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal"> . "It doesnt get any better than that," Giambi said. "Im speechless." The Indians are roaring toward October. Giambi belted a two-run, pinch-hit homer with two outs in the ninth inning to give Cleveland a shocking 5-4 win over the Chicago White Sox on Tuesday night, keeping the Indians up with the lead pack in the AL wild-card race. John Smoltz Jersey/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal"> . The Islanders dealt Thomas Vanek to the Montreal Canadiens after less than a year on Long Island.

THOUSAND OAKS, Calif. -- Although Jared Goff still isnt getting the keys to the Los Angeles Rams offense, the No. 1 draft pick will get to take it for a spin.Goff will get increased practice time with the first-team offense during the Rams current bye week and again next week before their game against Carolina, coach Jeff Fisher said Monday.While Case Keenum will remain Los Angeles starting quarterback, Goff has a chance to master the details necessary to gain Fishers approval.Hes going to get reps, Fisher said of Goff. I dont feel like Case needs the reps Wednesday and early next week, so Jared will get those reps, which is good.About 4 1/2 hours after stepping off the long flight home from London, Fisher confirmed he hasnt changed his mind about his quarterback situation with the Rams (3-4), who have lost three straight to wipe out their strong start to the season.Keenum, who threw four interceptions in the Rams dull 17-10 loss to the New York Giants at Twickenham Stadium, is still ahead of Goff, who got a four-year, $27.9 million contract with an $18.5 million signing bonus in June after the Rams mortgaged a large chunk of their future to trade up for him.Jared is going to be our starter (eventually), Fisher said. But were going to continue with Case.Although a bye week seems to be an ideal time to make a change thats essentially inevitable, Fisher isnt yet ready.Fisher declined the chance to be specific about whether he feels Goff isnt ready for the job, or whether he doesnt want to risk his prized picks health and development in the NFLs 30th-ranked offense. The Rams have an inconsistent offensive line, a struggling ground game and receivers who arent exactly distinguishing themselves this season.We won three straight games with (Keenum), Fisher said. Yes, I understand weve lost three straight. But the quarterback position, in my opinion, is not the reason why we lost the football games. ... (Keenum) threw four interceptions. You look at the actual plays, and as you guys know, interceptions -- you can place blame wherever you want.. Greg Maddux Jersey/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal">. Fisher says much of that blame resides with the Rams receivers. Brian Quick ran an incorrect route on Keenums fourth interception, while Kenny Britt made an earlier mistake that ruined a potential TD pass.When youre playing close games, youve got to do everything exactly right, Fisher said. And we didnt do that at the receiver position. Nor did we do it at the offensive line position, or the running back position for that matter.Fisher was noncommittal about the possibility of shaking up the receiving corps with additional playing time for rookies Pharoh Cooper, Nelson Spruce or Michael Thomas.Cooper, a fourth-round pick, has been active for just one game this season. Spruce has yet to get on the field after the Rams kept the promising undrafted free agent on their 53-man roster out of training camp even though he was injured. Thomas is mainly contributing on special teams.Were going to work some of the younger guys in there (in practice), Fisher said. (Cooper and Spruce) going to get a lot of reps, so well see. Michael is doing a good job out there on special teams. We just have to get more production out of the whole group.The Rams will practice only once during their bye. After a peripatetic season that began with the franchises return from St. Louis, the players will have several days off to recover from their London trip while revitalizing themselves for the nine weeks ahead.Those weeks begin with a favorable November schedule. Los Angeles next four opponents are a combined 8-18, giving the Rams a golden opportunity to get back in the playoff hunt despite their offensive woes.But first, Fisher wants his players to get rid of their jetlag. The coach could use some sleep, too.This week is about resting, its about recovering, Fisher said. Its also about getting away and coming back recharged, thats probably the most important thing.---AP NFL websites: and ;Cheap NFL Jerseys/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal"> Cheap NFL Jerseys China/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal"> Cheap Jerseys From China/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal"> Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal"> Wholesale Jerseys China/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal"> Cheap NFL Jerseys China/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal"> NFL Cheap Jerseys/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal"> ' ' '
