Vikings WR Stefon Diggs confident he will play after 2-game absence

Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Stefon Diggs, who has missed two games with a groin injury, is confident he’ll be able to return to action Sunday.

“At the end of the day you’ll have to ask [coach Mike] Zimmer — I was confident [of playing] last week, so I guess we’ll see.”

The Arizona Cardinals placed quarterback Carson Palmer on injured reserve with a broken arm on Thursday, meaning he will miss at least eight weeks.

The earliest Palmer would be able to return is Dec. 24 against the New York Giants, the second-to-last game of the regular season.

Palmer was injured in the second quarter of the Cardinals’ 33-0 loss to the Los Angeles Rams on Sunday in London. He had surgery on his broken left arm on Wednesday.

The original timeline of his recovery was projected at eight weeks, but Palmer had hoped to return sooner.

“It depends on what the surgeon says,” Arians said Monday. “He is a fast healer. He’s had it broken before and basically said he was back in five.”

Bucs coach Dirk Koetter said he’s aware of the complaints and quickly told the players it’s always better to handle objections within the team instead of making them public.

“When you lose games you probably should have won, everybody is frustrated,” Koetter said. “It’s just human nature. The majority of our issues are self-inflicted. We’re the only ones who can fix them.”

A victory on Sunday would be the best problem-solver. That goes for the Panthers, too.

“The only thing you can do right now is you’ve got to get one game,” Koetter said. “It is a factor (that) we have not played division games and those games can move you up fast. You’ve got to get one. You’ve just got to get one win.

Cam Newton, Panthers: In the very small sample size of Cam Newton after a 2017 news conference issue, he’s elite that weekend. Maybe he’s extra motivated, maybe he’s just a really good quarterback or maybe, just maybe, it’s one game we are cherry-picking.

Seahawks add veteran Dwight Freeney Jersey to replace injured Cliff Avril Jersey

Dwight Freeney will get a 16th NFL season.
NHL Women's Boston Bruins Big & Tall Logo T-Shirt - Orange
The 37-year-old defensive end agreed to terms with the Seahawks on Tuesday. Freeney will replace defensive end Cliff Avril, who was placed on injured reserve on Oct. 20 with a neck injury. Freeney’s first game could be Sunday against the visiting Texans.

Great guy, will never embarrass you off the field, and if you were ranking guys, he’s probably above average. But he’s not special. And that’s not going to change.
Longtime NFL front office decision-maker, when asked to assess Cousins’ prospects

In a league in which Jay Cutler and Case Keenum are starters, though, the answer is yes-some team is going to pay Cousins $25 million (or more) in 2018. If he signs a long-term deal, Washington (or someone else) will likely have to guarantee him $90-100 million, based on what the Lions gave Matthew Stafford, and Cousins might end up as the highest-paid player in NFL history. The market will demand it.

The rookie QB threw two of his NFL-leading 11 interceptions against Tennessee and hasn’t produced a touchdown on the ground or through the air since Week 3.

I believe personally that everyone here knows that this game is a production-based game, Kizer said this week, via the team’s website. When you are not producing and you are not leading your team in the right direction of getting a win through turnovers, the best guy should be on the field. For me, it is about doing whatever I can to make sure that I prove to him that I am the best guy on the field.

Devin Hester Jersey Two turnovers in the last two games doesn’t necessarily head in that direction.

Still, the 0-7 Browns seem inclined to press on and see what they have in their second-round draft pick even as the situation continues to deteriorate in Cleveland. The latest blow came earlier this week when offensive line stalwart Joe Thomas Max Garcia Womens Jersey was lost for the season with a torn triceps tendon, further weakening Kizer’s supporting cast.

Kareem Hunt Jersey is making the Chiefs appointment television

This week Sam Martin Jersey was unusual for Kareem Hunt. Kansas City won again, the NFL’s most predictable occurrence so far this season, but Hunt didn’t find the end zone, a season first for the Chiefs’ shooting-star running back. Most surprising of all, Hunt didn’t have a play of 50 yards or more like he did in the first three games of the season.

Authentic Youth Dan Feeney Jersey His longest run in Monday’s 29-20 win over Washington was only 17 yards. Seven plays later he followed it up with his most important run of the night, a 16-yard jab up the middle that put Kansas City inside Washington’s 20-yard line.

Denver (3-1) is on its bye and Charles is healthy once again, sculpting a niche in his new home, full of hope once again, recovered from a busted knee and a broken heart.

People thought my talent had just gone away, he said softly. No, I’ve always been a special guy. No, it’s still there. I got credibility.

Larry Bird Game Jersey McCarthy offered me a window into how he views young quarterbacks last March at the NFL owners meetings when he discussed the college read-option ones entering the NFL and how some NFL offensive gurus are hesitant to embrace them:

I think if you start to think about quarterbacks solely from the offense they ran in college, you are starting to box yourself in. I tend to think that those types of systems enhance a good player. If anything, it shows me the variety of what he can do and gives me more ideas of what I can do with him.

McCarthy, who turns 54 on Nov. 10, has been coaching in the NFL since 1993. He has been the Packers head coach since 2006. He won Super Bowl XLV in 2011.

Adrian Peterson Jersey nabs his first offensive player of week since 2012

All Adrian Peterson needed was an opportunity.

Peterson was named the NFC offensive player of the week Wednesday after running for 134 yards and two touchdowns in his first game since being traded to the Arizona Cardinals.

Limited Mens Davonte Lambert Jersey It is his first weekly honor since Week 14 of the 2012 season and his eighth overall.

The Vikings were in two-minute-drill mode, looking to extend their 14-10 lead going into the half. After a Jerick McKinnon first down with just over a minute to go and the clock ticking, the Vikings had 48 seconds before the end of the half to make a go at the end zone from the Green Bay 30.

On their second first down play, Case Keenum completed a pass to McKinnon for no gain. However, another Vikings penalty 鈥?an illegal blindside block 鈥?on Laquon Treadwell cost them another 15 yards.

The Vikings would still get five more plays off after being moved back to their own 40. However, they wouldn’t cross the 50-yard line again.

McKinnon rushed for no gain on first down. Their second down attempt was trimmed to second-and-35 with a Packers neutral-zone infraction, where Keenum then threw an incomplete pass. On third down, McKinnon rushed for 10 yards, and on fourth, Keenum threw an unsuccessful Hail Mary to Adam Thielen.

Somebody make the Vikings a plaque for that first-and-40, though Mike Zimmer might not appreciate it.
Herman Edwards Womens Jersey
Over the past three games, though, a defense that had served as a punchline has shown signs of life. The Saints have jumped from 31st in defensive DVOA after Week 2 to 15th, lofty heights for a unit that has ranked either last or second-to-last in the league in 2014, 2015, and 2016.

Channel 2 General Manager Jim Toellner declined comment.

Even if Javad has an offer to consider, it would seem to be unlikely that he would leave during the upcoming November sweeps or any time soon.

We warmly welcome our first Observers, Patrick Baumann, the president of GAISF, said in a statement. This is an exciting time for them and for us and we will do everything within our remit to help them realize their full potential as International Federations within the global sport’s family and, one day, maybe become part of the Olympic program.

Joining the program in Tokyo in two years will be softball, karate, surfing, skateboarding, sport climbing and baseball — the games’ second shot at Olympic status. These sports were chosen, especially skateboarding and sport climbing, in part to reflect the changing interest in younger athletes and the worldwide popularity of these sports.

What happened? This year’s No. 1 overall pick suffered a high ankle sprain during a practice on Sept. 6. A teammate accidentally fell on his ankle, and Garrett was expected to miss 4-6 weeks. He spent the last few weeks in a walking boot.

Two weeks ago, Cleveland.com’s Mary Kay Cabot reported that Garrett ditched the walking boot and rode a stationary bike. Head coach Hue Jackson said Garrett was “close” to returning to the field, but the team decided to hold him out against the Indianapolis Colts in Week 3. Garrett believes he can make a difference once he steps on the field.

Jackson told ESPN’s Pat McManamon that Garrett “looked good” in practice. “I think we’re getting closer, like I said before, than we are further away,” Jackson said.

“I want to make sure that we cross all the t’s and dot all the i’s and talk to the medical staff about what the expectation is of him and what we’re going to do. He’s a huge piece of our organization, our future, so we want to be cautious but smart as we go through it.”steelers_027

Charcandrick West Jersey gave us the sassiest TD celebration this season

We’ve seen some fun — and funny — celebrations this week. Torrey Smith pretended to hit a home run after he scored for the Eagles, and David Njoku spiked the football into his own butt after he scored for the Browns. Seriously.

According to the alleged victim, Elliott Facetimed her and told me I can get the police involved all I want. That he’s going to win and that no one would believe her.

What Elliott said: Elliott said that his accuser was upset after he asked her to leave and told her that he couldn’t go out with him that night.

Ok this is what you want? Ok then, I’m going to ruin your life. You will see. If I was you, I wouldn’t go out tonight, she replied, according to documents obtained by the Star-Telegram.

Limited Kids Donnie Jones Jersey Jared Goff has helped the Rams to a 4-2 record this season, but his improved play hasn’t led to much fantasy production. With six games under his belt, Goff sits 15th at the position in fantasy points. His best weekly finish is ninth, and he hasn’t otherwise finished a week better than 14th. Goff’s play has been much better than it was during his rookie campaign, but he has regressed a bit the past few weeks. Goff completed 67 percent of his passes, averaged 9.2 yards per attempt and sported a 7-1 TD-INT mark during Weeks 1-4, but he has completed 49 percent of his throws, is averaging 6.1 YPA and has a 1-2 TD-INT mark in his past two outings. The Rams’ schedule is pretty rough the next few weeks, so Goff should remain far away from your starting lineup.

Cam Newton Jersey was great on the road in Detroit and New England

His specter still looms just as large as it did when Kaepernick first took a knee during the national anthem to protest racial inequality and police brutality because, as he told NFL Network in August 2016, I am not going to stand up to show pride in a flag for a country that oppresses black people and people of color.

There has been little buzz around this team because of concerns about defensive decline and familiar offensive issues, but they still have a Russell Wilson and many other leaders, including Pete Carroll, who can carry them back to NFC supremacy post-bye.

Cam Newton was great on the road in Detroit and New England, but he stunk at home vs. New Orleans and Philadelphia. The inconsistency will continue as long they can’t power run the ball or execute anything deep because of line woes.
Authentic Mens Josh Huff Jersey
Kaepernick is challenging the NFL over his unemployment through a collusion grievance that, if proven, would nullify the league’s Collective Bargaining Agreement with its players and thus potentially shut down the NFL with a work stoppage.
Youth Shayne Gostisbehere Jersey
And he is the reason why the NFL is no longer sticking to sports.

More quarterback doubts, as Jameis Winston’s status was unclear after his shoulder injury Sunday. The Bills come off of a bye still in position to make noise in the AFC East, but their lack of receiving help for Tyrod Taylor is finally catching up to them. The Bucs are unpredictable with Winston at full strength, so they’re a crapshoot without him.

DeMarco Murray Jersey powers up the middle from the 3

Authentic Youth Ryan Shazier Jersey A Steel Curtain fell on Kansas City Sunday.

Authentic Cornelius Lucas Jersey The Steelers, who were thrashed by the Jaguars last week, came into Arrowhead Stadium and shut down the high-powered Chiefs offense in a 19-13 Steelers victory. The Chiefs had been the NFL’s last remaining undefeated team, meaning the 1972 Dolphins were surely celebrating the Steelers victory.

Three teams were said to be interested in Bowman and it would be stunning if the Patriots, who have the worst defense in the league, were not one of them.

There’s no doubt Bowman would have loved to play his entire career with the Niners but, for a player who has seen so much of his prime lost to injury, the opportunity to play for that ring is one to relish.

What it means for the 49ers: The keys of the defense have officially been handed to Foster, who will now serve as tone-setter in chief.

It was tough not to be impressed by the snaps Foster played before he suffered a high ankle sprain in the season opener with the Panthers, and he should provide an upgrade at the Mike linebacker position playing alongside Armstrong.

Foster was touted as a Defensive Rookie of the Year candidate before the injury. The chances of him netting the award are all but over but, if he can play at that level down the stretch, the 49ers will know they have Bowman’s replacement and a player who can be a cornerstone of an improving young defense.

Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie Jersey suspended after leaving Giants facility

Giants cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie was missing from practice on Wednesday, but it wasn’t because of an injury.

Coach Ben McAdoo told reporters that the 0-5 Giants will suspend Rodgers-Cromartie, but did not provide any other information.

Rogie Vachon Mens Jersey DRC came in yesterday. We had a conversation that was personal upstairs and he came in today, decided to leave. We will suspend him, McAdoo said Wednesday.

The most frequent sparring partner for @forargument is the nation’s sports media, Andrew Beaton of the Wall Street Journal wr. On Sept. 26, @ProFootballTalk, the Twitter account for the popular NBC Sports blog, tweeted that it was ‘on the commissioner’ to solve the anthem issues. In response, @forargument tweeted: ‘Please do better reporting. He is already doing this. You are behind.’

Jane Skinner Goodell is also a former journalist with Fox News and said she wanted to portray both sides of the story after she admitted to running the account.

It was a REALLY silly thing to do and done out of frustration — and love. she said. As a former media member, I’m always bothered when the coverage doesn’t provide a complete and accurate picture of a story. I’m also a wife and a mom. I have always passionately defended the hard-working guy I love — and I always will. I just may not use Twitter to do so in the future!

The NFL did comment defending Jane Skinner Goodell and downplayed the tweeting.

Sounds like what she did is what every spouse in America would want to do, NFL spokesman Brian McCarthy said.

Quarterback Marcus Mariota Jersey hasn’t played 16 games in an NFL season yet

Authentic Tomas Hertl Jersey
Right when it seemed as if Derrick Henry was legitimately pushing DeMarco Murray for a significant share of backfield work, the 2016 and early-2017 game plan was quickly put back in place. Murray racked up 18 touches for 69 yards on 49 snaps against Miami in Week 5. Henry touched the ball four times on 10 snaps. Murray has battled some injuries this season, but he still has played 97 more snaps than Henry. Murray is very much in the RB1 mix against the Colts’ struggling defense this week. Henry is a great handcuff but shouldn’t be in starting lineups.

Quarterback Marcus Mariota hasn’t played 16 games in an NFL season yet, and he won’t this year after missing Week 5 with a hamstring injury. The Titans are going nowhere without Mariota, so it becomes essential to keep him upright or they’ll be at home come playoff time once again. Backup Matt Cassel won’t get it done. There is optimism that Mariota will return in Week 6, but can he stay healthy? That’s the Titans’ biggest remaining question mark, and the fact there’s uncertainty reflects the overall vibe toward this team. — Cameron Wolfe

12.3 percent chance. If the Raiders played in any other division, their outlook might be better than it is in the AFC West. But with Derek Carr injured and with the Chiefs and Broncos a combined 8-1, Oakland’s chances have dipped to 12.3 percent after starting the season over 50 percent.
Authentic Len Dawson Jersey
36.8 percent chance. The Bills weren’t given much of a shot by FPI at the start of the season (11.6 percent), but their chances have tripled since then, thanks to a three-win start. The Bills get some rest this week, before they play three at home in a four-game stretch afterward.

Bradford played Monday night for the first time since Week 1. But the Vikings (3-2) removed him late in the second quarter, and Keenum led the team to a 20-17 victory over the Chicago Bears.

Bradford looked uncomfortable from the opening play and was limping noticeably by the time he gave way to Keenum. Sugarman said Bradford obviously aggravated the knee at some point during the game and pushed back strongly on suggestions that Bradford was not healthy enough to play in the first place.
