Leonard Hankerson has LCL injury in left knee

Washington Redskins wide receiver Leonard Hankerson has an LCL injury in his left knee, but it has not yet been determined if he will require surgery to repair the injury, according to Mark Maske of the Washington Post.

Hankerson, 24, was a third-round selection in the 2011 NFL Draft and didn’t play much in his rookie season after suffering a hip injury that ended his season early. Since then, he has developed into a solid contributor and has tallied 30 receptions for 375 yards and three touchdowns.

If Hankerson misses extended time for the Redskins, they will rely on Aldrick Robinson, Santana Moss and Joshua Morgan to take larger roles in the Washington offense.

The Redskins have the sixth-ranked offense in the NFL, but are 13th in points scored. Quarterback Robert Griffin III has posted 14 touchdowns and 10 interceptions for the team.

The car crash nine years ago, on a recruiting trip for Baylor, should have killed him. A tire blew out, and a panicked Babers hit the brakes at 80 miles per hour. His car spun, and he ended up facing oncoming traffic on an interstate near Houston. Babers recalled in detail the face of the semi driver who swerved to miss him.

I don’t use the word s-c-a-r-e-d anymore either, because I nearly died nine years ago. Since then, I don’t use that word, Babers said.

He was content to stay at Eastern Illinois for 25 years like his predecessor, Bob Spoo, who gave Babers his first full-time job as a running backs coach in 1987. Both started their head coaching careers at Eastern at age 50.

Late defensive TD gives Jacksonville its 1st win, 29-27

A stifling defensive performance and a late turnover gave the Jags a 29-27 win over the Tennessee Titans on Sunday, their first of 2017. The Jaguars, now 1-8, hadn’t won since Nov. 25, 2017, a victory that also came at the expense of the Titans.

The Titans battled back from nine-point deficit in the fourth quarter and had the ball with three minutes remaining trailing by two. Jacksonville’s Will Blackmon sealed the victory when he stripped Ryan Fitzpatrick of the ball and took it 21 yards back for a touchdown.

A late Tennessee touchdown cut the lead to two points, but the Titans couldn’t recover the onside kick.

The Titans had climbed back into the game when Fitzpatrick, filling in for an injured Jake Locker, rushed in for a four-yard score to make it 22-20.

The loss drops Tennessee to 4-5 and delivers a blow to the team’s hopes of making the playoffs for the first time since 2008.

The Jags built an early 17-point lead in the first half thanks to a six-yard touchdown run from Maurice Jones-Drew and field goals of 44 and 32 yards from Josh Scobee. The touchdown was Jones-Drew’s only highlight of the day, as his disappointing season continued with only 41 yards on 21 carries.

The Titans got on the board win Ryan Fitzpatrick hit Taylor Thompson for a nine-yard touchdown pass in the final minute of the first half.

Fitzpatrick was called in after starter Locker was forced out of the game in the second quarter with a foot injury. Fitzpatrick was impressive, connecting on his first seven passes and leading the Titans down for their first score.

Game Mens Xavien Howard Jersey Rob Bironas field goals of 37 and 39 then pulled the Titans back to within one possession. The Jaguars then got a safety when the Titans’ Chance Warmack was called for a holding penalty in the endzone.

Lions vs. Steelers 2017 odds and lines: Lions slight favorites on the road

The Pittsburgh Steelers host the Detroit Lions in Week 11, and Vegas is expecting a close affair. According to Oddsshark, the Lions are favored by anywhere from one to three points on the road.

Detroit jumped out to first place in the NFC North after scoring a crucial divisional win last week. They beat the Chicago Bears, 21-19, narrowly covering the one-point spread. The Lions improve to 6-3 on the standings and 5-4 against the spread. Calvin Johnson had yet another banner moment, setting the franchise record for most touchdown receptions.

Authentic Youth Latrell Sprewell Jersey The Steelers’ playoff hopes are almost done, but they did get a rare victory last week. Pittsburgh beat the Buffalo Bills, 23-10. They were 2.5 point favorites heading into the game and had no trouble covering. The Steelers move to 3-6 on the season and 3-6 against the spread. Their defense put on a vintage performance against the Bills after getting roasted by the Patriots in the previous week.
Authentic Youth Lawrence Guy Jersey
Once he crossed the line of scrimmage, McAfee couldn’t depend on anyone to make blocks for him, so he often had to be his own blocker. He could knock Titans over like bowling pins, and he could also dart his way down the field to gain 10-yard chunks at a time.

But on top of venturing past the line of scrimmage without any teammates, he was also running out of the punt formation, meaning he had to start running from far behind the line. It clearly telegraphed his intentions well ahead of time, and I just couldn’t find a way to bust loose for a long run.

March Madness bracket update: Gonzaga outlasts West Virginia in frantic final minute

The Gonzaga Bulldogs just barely hung on against the West Virginia Mountaineers in a 61-58 victory in the Sweet 16 on Thursday. The game was tight from buzzer to buzzer, with neither team leading by more than eight points and usually never more than three.

One reason that a good result was far from certain for Brazil on Thursday was the absence of young Manchester City star Gabriel Jesus. He’s been the perfect forward for Neymar to combine with, and without him, Brazil’s attack hasn’t looked as potent. But Liverpool’s Roberto Firmino filled the role well, helping to set up Paulinho’s second goal.

In a statement Thursday, Patriots owner Robert Kraft said he looks forward to giving the jerseys to Brady when he returns to New England.

Kraft thanked the FBI, Mexican authorities and other law enforcement agencies involved in the investigation.

It is another example of the importance of teamwork and what can be accomplished when everyone works together, Kraft said.

The FBI released a photo of the jerseys being held by Harold Shaw, special agent in charge of the FBI Boston Division, and Col. Richard McKeon of the Massachusetts State Place. Kraft is standing between the two jerseys and behind the Patriots’ five Super Bowl trophies.

We know how much this means to the Patriots and football fans everywhere, and we are honored to be able to bring these jerseys back to Foxboro, Shaw said.

Colleagues of Ortega said he went to this year’s Super Bowl in Houston as a working journalist but spent the week collecting selfies and autographs from football players. Ortega quit his job as director of the tabloid La Prensa earlier on March 14, two days after Brady’s jerseys were found.

Minnesota turns to Murray to replace Peterson as its feature back.

New England lost one of its top corners hours after it signed Gilmore. Ryan is departure should make it easier for the Pats to keep restricted free agent Malcolm Butler. Tennessee desperately needed this kind of corner and got a good value on Ryan.

Minnesota turns to Murray to replace Peterson as its feature back. Murray, 27, led the Raiders last season with 788 rushing yards and 12 touchdowns on 195 carries. In 2015, he rushed for 1,066 yards on 266 carries.

The Seahawks were hosting the Carolina Panthers on Sunday Night Football, and Beast Mode showed up to check out his old teammates.

Prior to the game, he was also seen out with a full plate of chicken wings. He showed up around the same time that Thomas Rawls was hurt and the run game was suffering.

ESPN is Adam Schefter and Josina Anderson report that the Raiders are interested in signing Lynch, a day after Latavius Murray lands with the Vikings.

To do so, he used a checklist that he and his parents came up with.

It has three main points. First is relationships, second is best development, and third is setting me up to be successful in my life after football, Moore said. I did my research on all my schools.

But some schools were easier than others to put in his list.

Alabama, Ohio State, Florida State, Georgia, and Tennessee, Moore said when asked which schools easily made the cut. The rest are schools in which he still has some interest, but perhaps have some work to do to catch up.

Reimer allowed two goals on his first three shots.

Michael Grabner used his speed on scoring chance and drew a hooking penalty. With the Rangers on the power play, Chris Krieder skated up the left wing and centered a pass to Zuccarello, who one-timed it past Reimer for his 13th at 2:34.

Then Smith forced a turnover and passed to Miller, who wristed a shot past Reimer from the faceoff circle at 4:11 for his 20th.

But that’s not what’s most important right now. What’s most important is that the Wolverines are still playing and looking as dangerous as anybody.

Clark, 60, said he doesn’t know if playing football caused the disease but he suspects that is the case. ALS has in recent years been linked to chronic traumatic encephalopathy, or CTE, the degenerative brain disease that studies have linked to athletes and others with a history of repetitive brain trauma, including concussions.

Lamar Odom, Rhode Island basketball hero, was in the stands to watch them in NCAA tournament

The last time the Rams played in the Big Dance, Odom had a big part to play in getting them there. In the conference tournament final against Temple back in 1999, Odom¡¯s pull-up jumper at the buzzer propelled the Rams to the tourney.

While Odom was enrolled at URI during the 1997-98 school year, the team went to the Sweet 16 without him. Odom was forced to sit out that season after transferring from UNLV.

On his return, he would lead the Rams to their first conference tournament championship in school history. History has repeated itself this season as URI won the Atlantic 10 tournament. The Rams are certainly hoping they won¡¯t repeat the NCAA tourney performance of Odom¡¯s Rams however. That team got bounced in the first round.

Authentic Kids Mirza Teletovic Jersey It¡¯s hard to understate how awful Bowling Green was last September. But the rebound was definitive, and with a little positive turnovers luck (BGSU was minus-3.8 points per game for the season), the Falcons might have been able to flip a couple of games and eke out an unlikely bowl bid.

Patrick Ewing Kids Jersey BGSU is projected 95th per S&P+ this year, and while there are likely more early losses on the way with trips to Michigan State and Northwestern, there should be opportunities for six wins. BGSU has six games with win probability between 40 and 61 percent. Split those and take your three higher-probability games (South Dakota, Akron, at Buffalo), and you¡¯re bowling. Win most of the tossups, and you might be in contention for the MAC East.

It felt like a bit of a reach to bring in a guy with no college coordinator or head coaching experience or clear Ohio connections. But Bowling Green showed just enough progress last year to hint at yet another surge, and Jinks¡¯ recruiting efforts furthered that impression.

Bowling Green proved itself resilient in 2016, but considering history, that shouldn¡¯t be surprising.

The Warriors didn’t know Kawhi Leonard would be out

While it appeared Golden State’s players only found out about resting after Friday’s game, Kerr and the Warriors coaching staff must have planned this in advance. Decisions had clearly already been made on Thursday, when the team announced Shaun Livingston would sit out Friday’s game. Leonard sustained the elbow to his head on Thursday night, and it wasn’t until Friday a few hours before the Warriors game that the Spurs announced Leonard was entering the NBA’s concussion protocol.

Facing the Spurs and Leonard in San Antonio on the second night of a back-to-back is a losing proposition, and the Warriors clearly couldn’t have guaranteed a win — or even that a win would have been likely. Leonard’s absence gives them a much better chance, but they didn’t know that when they set the plan into action.

Since Cousins joined New Orleans, they’re outscoring opponents by more than five points per 100 possessions without him on the court. With him on the court, the Pelicans are outscored by about 11 points per 100 possessions.

The personnel around Davis and Cousins isn’t geared for them at all. They need to flood the floor with shooters, and no one on the Pelicans’ roster is particularly fearsome stretching defenses behind the arc. Since the trade, the team is only hitting 32 percent of their threes.

Given New Orleans’ trajectory, and considering what they gave up, this was a talent acquisition they needed to make. Cousins has another year left on his contract, so they’ll have a real offseason to retool around those two all-NBA level big men before decided whether they want to invest more than $100 million in Cousins’ future with Davis. That’s a good situation for them to be in.

For now, though, with this roster, the reality might be that the Pelicans are better with Cousins on the bench. They won’t bench him completely, of course — but close games could see decreasing amounts of Boogie going forwards.
