Julia Haltigan!

Larry Fitzgerald is considered one of the good guys in the NFL, and he followed through on one heck of a demand after accidentally injuring Bruce Arians during a celebration.

None of them feel good, except for the ones that nick your jersey, he said. I’m going to say this one felt pretty bad, too.

After Harrison’s injury, the Pirates’ Ivan Nova hit J.B. Shuck in the hip later that same inning.

We’ve got each other’s back, Harrison said. You never want anybody to get hurt, but we’re family here.

The Pirates’ leadoff hitter, Harrison is batting .263 with one homer and five RBIs. He came into Sunday’s game leading the team with 12 runs.

The Sixers honored Greer before their playoff game against the Miami Heat on Monday night with a moment of silence. They are wearing a patch on their uniforms with Greer’s No. 15. He was the first Sixer to have his number retired.

Greer spent 15 seasons with the Syracuse Nationals and Philadelphia 76ers and finished his career with a franchise-record 21,586 points. He’s also the 76ers’ career leader in field goals, field goals attempted, games and minutes played.

Greer was the first player to be honored with a sculpture on 76ers Legends Walk at the team training complex in 2017.

Greer was named to 10 straight All-Star Games and earned All-Star Game MVP honors in 1968. He earned a spot on the NBA 50th Anniversary All-Time Team in 1996.

He played at Marshall and was the 13th overall pick by the Nationals in the 1958 draft. Greer was inducted into the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame in 1982.

The Sixers said Greer died Saturday night in Arizona after a brief illness. He is survived by his wife Mayme, a son and two daughters.

Comparisons are already off the charts with iconic pinstripe tandems. With the hulking Judge standing in the batter’s box and the chiseled Stanton on deck, you can almost picture Babe Ruth, Lou Gehrig, Mickey Mantle and Roger Maris sitting in the Yankees dugout, waiting to see if their records fall.

Can Judge and Stanton both hit 60 home runs?steelers_014

Los Angeles Dodgers third baseman Logan Forsythe has been placed on the 10-day disabled list with right shoulder inflammation, the team announced Sunday.

Forsythe left Saturday’s 9-1 loss to the Arizona Diamondbacks because of the injury.

Normally a second baseman, Forsythe had been filling in at third for Womens Trevor Siemian Jersey the injured Justin Turner. Kike Hernandez and Kyle Farmer are expected to pick up third-base duties in Forsythe’s absence.

He held Detroit to a run on three hits and a pair of walks while striking out six in a complete-game victory his last time out.

Carlos pitched a heckuva game, said Indians manager Terry Francona. His off-speed stuff was so effective coming off of his fastball. He stayed down with it so consistently that he gives himself a chance against every hitter.

Carrasco has earned a victory in his last 12 decisions against AL Central opponents and is 9-0 with a 1.92 ERA during his last 10 starts overall.

He faced the Twins three times last season, winning all three while posting a 0.92 ERA. For his career, Carrasco is 5-6 with 3.83 ERA against Minnesota in 17 appearances, including 14 starts.

I can’t worry about it that much. If it’ll make you [the caller] happy to know this, know this: I certainly let both of them know that I didn’t appreciate what was said.

After Francesa and Russo’s comments, morning hosts Boomer Esiason and Gregg Giannotti rushed to their defense the next day, leading to a new feud between Russo and the former NFL quarterback. But the afternoon trio had remained quiet until a caller prompted them on Tuesday afternoon.

Scott, a trash-talking linebacker with the Ravens and Jets, was more than happy to engage.

I’ve been getting criticized my whole life. If I woke up with any of their lives, I’d kill myself, Scott said. My r茅sum茅 speaks for itself. I’m having fun. You can’t ruin my fun with hate.

The latest update in the ratings showed Michael Kay’s ESPN Radio show starting to surge past their WFAN counterparts, something that only happened once in Kay’s time against Francesa.

Elite Laurent Duvernay-Tardif Jersey The Bills are planning some renovations to their stadium, and in a novel development, they’re going to spend their own money.
Nike Andrew Billings Youth Olive/Gold Limited Jersey: #75 NFL Cincinnati Bengals 2017 Salute To Service
According to Vic Carucci of the Buffalo News, the Bills will spend $18 million in private money to improve club seating areas and digital signage at New Era Field, with the work scheduled to be completed before the start of the season.

Heeney, 25, played only five games last season before undergoing arthroscopic surgery on his knee. Houston placed him on injured reserve November 29.

Heeney is entering his fourth NFL season, having spent his first two seasons in Oakland after the Raiders drafted him in the fifth round. He also spent time with the Saints last season.
Luke Kuechly Mens Jersey
Gray spent last season on injured reserve. He has never played in an NFL game.

But, basically, Washington is getting a fifth-round pick and change for Cravens, whom coach Jay Gruden previously said they wouldn’t trade.

Denver gets a talented player, but one who has had concussion problems and has Cornelius Lucas Authentic Jersey openly discussed potentially retiring. If Cravens is good to go in 2018, this looks like a good move for the Broncos. If not, Washington has to be thrilled just to get something for him.

After playing for 10 years with the Green Bay Packers, wide receiver Jordy Nelson can’t help but feel a little hurt by the way the relationship came to an end.

Nelson was released by Green Bay before the start of free agency and he elected to sign with the Oakland Raiders in the ensuing days. The Packers asked Nelson to take a significant pay cut in order to remain with the team. However, it appears as though his salary wasn’t the only that would have been cut had he remained in Green Bay.

Injured New York Yankees first baseman Greg Bird said Sunday he’s confident that by some point in May he will be back playing baseball again.
Youth Craig Anderson Authentic Red Adidas Jersey: NHL Ottawa Senators #41 2017 100 Classic
Whether it’s early May starting a rehab, I don’t know exactly, said Bird, who is recovering from a recent ankle surgery. And I don’t know how long they’ll be wanting me to rehab [in the minor leagues].

I really haven’t thought about that, Newsome said. I’ve been more just preparing for this draft.

Matt Moulson Limited Jersey What’s going to occur a year from now is not in my thought process. It’s just making this the best draft that we can this year. That’s what’s been my focus.
Adam Jones Limited Jersey
Newsome and Harbaugh will have a different focus today, as they’ll be questioned under oath regarding the Colin Womens Sergei Boikov Jersey Kaepernick grievance, and the fact they just signed Robert Griffin III will provide an interesting atmosphere (though defending Griffin over Kaepernick as a football decision might require them to stretch first).

Bird, 25, whose career has already been delayed by two other injuries with long recoveries, will begin the rehab process on Monday following a surgery late last month.

On March 27, Bird underwent a 10-minute procedure at the Hospital for Special Surgery in Manhattan to remove a coin-sized calcium deposit from his right ankle. He had played on the problematic bone spur for nearly all of spring training before the pain suddenly became too unbearable.

I was hoping the more I played, the more I’d get used to it and it’d just go away, Bird said Sunday. And it went the opposite. The more I played, the worse it got.

As the NFL’s focus on player safety includes pulling more players off the field for concussion evaluations and possibly ejecting more players for leading with the helmet, the league might need more players available. It won’t be surprising if Quinn’s proposal picks up steam.

The recent comments from former UCLA coach Jim Mora regarding former UCLA quarterback Josh Rosen has invited speculation that Mora possibly is trying to help Rosen implement a strategy to avoid the Cleveland Browns. Per a source with knowledge of the situation, that’s not the case.

Mora was expressing his own opinions when commenting about Rosen, and in no way sending any messages directly or indirectly on Rosen’s behalf.

art from the fact that a healthy amount of curiosity should be regarded as a positive (for some reason, plenty don’t see it that way), Rosen’s propensity to ask questions and to seek information makes the report from late December that he was considering staying in school another year in order to avoid the Browns even more nonsensical. Rosen didn’t have any information about the Browns at that point and he still doesn’t have enough to allow himself to determine whether it’s a good fit. Again, even if he concludes that the fit isn’t good — and even if the Browns draft him anyway — Rosen will welcome the challenge, embrace the city, and join the team.

So where did that report come from? The answer may be lurking somewhere in the reality that, only two days before, Rosen told a major agency that he’d eventually be hiring another agency, and that the agency Rosen didn’t select represents the reporter who first pushed the notion that Rosen doesn’t want to play for the Browns.

Coach Frank Reich has a different view of his role. While rebuilding the roster may be a theme for the next couple of years, Reich is staying focused on results.

“I get that there’s certain positions in the organization where there are different perspectives,” Reich said, via the Indianapolis Star. “And I think it’s mature to be able to say something can be both hands. But as a coach, I’m not both hands. I’m not being paid to [see] both hands. Other guys are being paid to see the rebuilding and have the patience. I’m not being paid for that. There’s not one ounce of me being patient. There’s not one ounce of me that thinks we are in a rebuilding project. Every ounce of me feels that we are winning this year.”la_kings_011

The Yankees placed starting pitcher CC Sabathia on the 10-day disabled list Saturday, one day after he left a game against the Baltimore Orioles early due to a hip injury.
Game Kids Reshad Jones Jersey Men's Nike Kansas City Chiefs #95 Chris Jones Limited Red Tank Top Suit NFL Jersey
Sabathia will be joined on the 10-day DL by third baseman Brandon Drury, who also came out of the 14-inning marathon early because of severe migraines and blurred vision. It’s unclear just how long Drury could be out. He’ll be seeing a doctor Monday as the Yankees begin addressing an issue that has bugged him for some time.

Man, it’s just blurry, Drury said Saturday. I can see the ball enough to kind of hit it and kind of catch it, but it’s not where it needs to be. It’s something, I’ve just got to figure out what’s going on.
Limited Arrelious Benn Jersey
To fill those three roster spots, the Yankees recalled pitchers Luis Cessa and Domingo German from Triple-A, and signed infielder/outfielder Jace Peterson from Scranton/Wilkes-Barre to a major league contract.

Boone said he planned for the pitching staff to stay in rotation, meaning either Cessa or German will pitch when Sabathia’s turn in the rotation comes up next week. The Yankees are hopeful Sabathia will return when his spot in the rotation comes up after that.

It just puts a bigger chip on my shoulder. I come from a situation where I’ve been ignored my whole life. Being a two-star prospect, having maybe five offers coming out, broke every school record at my school, Kurt Suzuki Authentic Jersey and I was still talked about being a Day 3 or undrafted guy. In two years, I’m an All-Pro and Pro Bowler.

Byard, who was a first-team All-Pro selection and was named to his first Pro Bowl last season after tying for the league lead with eight interceptions, took offense and replied to the photo.

How do you make this statement and not include the two first team AP All Pro safeties??, Byard wrote.

You’re looking at who writers tell u who’s the best I know who players and former players feel is the best. I rest my case. You continue to be a fan and i will continue being the man, Sanders wrote.

Free agent quarterback Johnny Manziel is reportedly drawing a lot of interest from the NFL as he practices for his opening day in the Spring League.

The former second-round pick of the Giants spent four seasons in blue, with a career-high seven sacks in 2014. The Giants expressed an interest in re-signing Hankins as a free agent, but the Colts’ offer was a richer price than was expected for his market.
Khris Davis Youth Jersey
The Giants instead wound up with a fourth-round compensatory draft pick, which they packaged with a sixth-rounder in a trade for former Rams linebacker Alec Ogletree.

The Jets have a need on their interior defensive line after cutting Muhammad Wilkerson and pulling their offer from Ndamukong Suh when it became clear that he preferred to play elsewhere. Suh signed with the Rams.

Fresh off signing Robert Griffin III earlier in the week, some thought that Baltimore might very well look in another direction come draft time.

The Yankees almost won the game in 11 innings, but Didi Marshawn Lynch Womens Jersey Gregorius was thrown out at the plate on a bang-bang play trying to score on a wild pitch by Orioles reliever Mychal Givens, who made a great play blocking the plate with a slide.

From there, Chasen Shreve worked his way into and out of a big jam in an Orioles 12th聽that ended with Colby Rasmus striking out with the bases loaded.

The Yankees trailed 3-2 from the fourth inning until the eighth when Gregorius lined a one-out, nobody-on homer to right off Orioles righty Miguel Castro.

Baltimore had pulled ahead in the fourth on a solo homer by Chris Davis off Sabathia, who earlier had fallen behind 1-0 and 2-1 when serving up homers in the first and third innings to Machado, who was 4-for-5 with three runs scored.

Former UCLA head coach Jim Mora has made some comments about Josh Rosen lately that sounds as though they are meant to discourage the Cleveland Browns from drafting the quarterback first overall, but that apparently is not the case.

Limited Mens Benoit Pouliot Jersey Vikings get right QB; Bears, Chiefs help theirs Shanahan has said he doesn’t need another Julio Jones-type for the 49ers, but Beckham, having thrived in the West Coast offense since he got to New York, would be spectacular in San Francisco. Like the Rams’ Les Snead and the Browns’ John Dorsey, John Lynch has proved he can be a aggressive general manager when needed. The 49ers are calculated even when working with a high cap number, and they can find ways to give Beckham an acceptable deal that’s somewhat team-friendly. When one considers a Beckham investment as a way to invest more in Garoppolo, it makes total sense.

Following Mara’s comments, Beckham reportedly claimed that he would not set foot on the field this yearwithout a new contract.

If the Giants are serious about keeping Beckham long-term, here’s a look at what a new contract might look like — compared to the top five wide receiver deals in the NFL. We also examine the production those teams received in return for their investment.

Kyle Long senses a ‘fresh feel’ as Bears get back to work at Halas Hall Kyle Long offered a few reasons on Tuesday聽for why he’s so excited to get to work as the Matt Nagy era gets underway this week at Halas Hall.聽 Kyle Long was hanging with Travis Kelce following聽the NFC Championship, after their brothers – defensive end Chris Long and offensive lineman Jason Kelce, both of the Philadelphia Eagles – had just punched their tickets to the Super Bowl.
Youth Ryan Kelly Jersey
And at one point, a lightbulb of sorts went off in Kelce’s head, and he turned and hit Long with this message: Oh, you guys have (Matt) Nagy now. You’re gonna be awesome. Long was honored with the Ed Block Courage Award on Tuesday, the same day Bears players were allowed to report to Halas Hall for the first stages of the 2018 offseason Patrick Beverley Jersey program. Nagy addressed his players Tuesday morning and delivered a message that resonated with the longest-tenured (but no longer oldest) member of the Bears. I’d say that everybody’s very, very, very excited to get started, Long said.

Just five games into the season, Houston manager A.J. Hinch already feels like a broken record when discussing his starting pitchers.

There were a lot of people here that were hoping for (a win), he said. It’s a big moment for the city. So I’m glad that I did all right.

Brad Peacock pitched a perfect seventh and Will Harris allowed one hit in the eighth before Collin McHugh took over. The starter-turned-reliever allowed a homer to Trey Mancini and a double to Colby Rasmus before retiring the last three batters.

Orioles starter Chris Tillman (0-1) was tagged for seven hits and four runs in four-plus innings in an uncharacteristically poor season debut. He entered with a 3-0 record and a 2.68 ERA in his first appearance of the year.

The trip to Miami stirred memories for Cora, who played for the Miami Hurricanes when their football team was a powerhouse. Among the players he knew were Warren Sapp, Ray Lewis and Dwayne Johnson.

I played PlayStation with the Rock my freshman year, Cora said with a laugh. We went to his room and played, and all of a sudden 10 years later he’s a superstar. I don’t think he knows who I am.

Marlins: C J.T. Realmuto (bruised back) began catching drills but is expected to be sidelined a few more weeks.

LHP Chris Sale (0-0, 0.00 ERA) is scheduled to start for the Red Sox in the finale of their trip Tuesday night against RHP Jose Urena (0-1, 11.25 ERA). Sale allowed one hit in six innings on opening day but is the lone Boston starter without a win. This is a good road trip, Cora said. It can be a great road trip Tuesday, and we’ve got the right guy going.

Billy McKinney, a young left fielder who was playing in his second major league game after making his debut Friday, exited Saturday’s game against the Toronto Blue Jays in the first inning when he crashed hard into the wall in left-center while chasing down a fly ball.

With the Yankees playing back, the Jays’ Kevin Pillar said he decided to gamble, and it paid off when he stole home in the eighth inning to help clinch Toronto’s 5-3 win on Saturday.

Later in the game, reliever Adam Warren left with a right ankle bruise after being struck by a hard comebacker.

X-rays for McKinney and Warren were negative, but McKinney was diagnosed with a left AC joint shoulder sprain after being evaluated by Blue Jays orthopedist Dr. Jason Smith, and manager Aaron Boone said he will be out at least a few weeks.patriots_177

The Cardinals declined to match the Chiefs’ offer to restricted free agent Xavier Williams, Terez Paylor of the Kansas City Star reports. That means Williams will join the Chiefs.
Women's Nike Tennessee Titans #34 Earl Campbell Navy Blue Alternate Vapor Untouchable Limited Player NFL Jersey
Williams, who grew up in the Kansas City area, ed 11 games with one start for the Cardinals last season. He had a career-high 20 tackles.

With the initial impetus for the rule change coming from the league’s desire to see fewer injuries on kickoffs, it seems unlikely that there is going to be a shift in the other direction even if the first year under the rule didn’t see a significant change on that front.

Kids Sean Monahan Jersey The Philadelphia Tyler Johnson Youth jersey Eagles have agreed to terms with free-agent wide receiver Mike Wallace on a one-year contract, the team announced Thursday. The deal is worth $2.5 million with the chance to make more through incentives, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. Wallace appears to be replacing Torrey Smith , who was traded to the Carolina Panthers , as a deep threat in the Eagles’ offense after averaging over 14 yards per catch through the past two seasons. The 31-year-old spent the last two years with the Baltimore Ravens , making 52 catches for 748 yards with four touchdowns last season. The Eagles will be the fifth team Wallace has joined in his nine-year career.

The Patriots drafted Garcia in the third round, hoping he could take over for Nate Solder in 2018. Solder left for the Giants in free agency.

But Garcia spent last season on the non-football illness list.
