The Wholesale Philadelphia Eagles Jerseys have placed veteran receiver DeSean Jackson on injured reserve, meaning he will not be eligible to return until the wild-card round of the playoffs.

Jackson suffered a torn abdominal muscle during Sunday’s game against the Wholesale Chicago Bears Jerseys and will have surgery, his representative told ESPN on Monday.

Tests revealed he has a full tear. The recovery time is expected to be at least six weeks.

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. — It’s getting ugly early for the Wholesale New York Giants Jerseys, who have lost five straight after falling to the Wholesale Dallas Cowboys Jerseys 37-18 on Monday at MetLife Stadium.

It’s fair to start wondering if this organization has any chance to meet owner John Mara’s preseason mandate. Mara said this summer that he wanted the Giants to “win some games” and “feel at the end of the season we’re moving in the right direction.”

That seems improbable, given the current state of the Giants, who at 2-7 haven’t won since late September. They have the most losses (31) of any team since the start of the 2017 season — more than the Wholesale Cleveland Browns Jerseys, who have an 0-16 campaign during that span.

It has been such an awful stretch that the Giants are somehow 0-6 in games where star running back Saquon Barkley has played from start to finish.

“It’s crazy to say that but, hey, the way I look at it and the way I have an outlook on life is there are going to be better days,” Barkley said. “We are struggling right now and things aren’t going out way, but I’m not going to lose my focus. I’m not going to lose belief in this team, this coaching staff. I’m just going to continue to come to work every single day and I know, I know for 100 percent sure it will turn around,” Barkley said.

The struggles set up perhaps the strangest of key games for coach Pat Shurmur and the Giants when they meet the rival Wholesale New York Jets Jerseys on Sunday. A loss would send the Giants into their bye week with six straight losses and questions about the state of the franchise. It’s hard to imagine how ownership would handle such an embarrassment.

Shurmur and the Giants need a win.

“In the worst way,” captain Mike Thomas said. “For everybody in this organization. Facility, players, coaches, front office. For everybody. We need it and we’re going to find a way to get it.”

Nothing seems to be going right for Shurmur & Co. these days. They were on the short end of some crucial penalties and no-calls late in Monday’s game. Maybe more concerning, the turnovers by rookie quarterback Daniel Jones keep coming. He had three against the Cowboys and has eight interceptions and eight fumbles this season.

Progress from the rookie quarterback was the only thing that could mask the stench from this much Giants losing. Instead, they keep stacking losses, and the Giants are simultaneously missing extra points, failing to score in the red zone (one touchdown in five tries) and allowing too many explosive plays, including the clincher courtesy of an Amari Cooper 45-yard touchdown on third-and-12 midway through the fourth quarter.

Put it all together, and it has the Giants and Shurmur seemingly on the brink of something, whether it be a massive meltdown or a serious overhaul.

QB breakdown: It was another game filled with ups and down for Jones. He finished 26-of-41 passing for 210 yards with a touchdown, interception and two lost fumbles. Jones is now tied for the league lead with 16 turnovers.

The turnovers were costly. Jones threw an interception in the final minute of the first half and fumbled on a third-down run in the third quarter. This is becoming a disturbing trend. The rookie has at least two turnovers in five of his seven starts.

Jones has 16 turnovers this season. That ties him with Tampa Bay’s Jameis Winston, and Jones has started only seven of the Giants’ games.

“Anytime you turn the ball over, it’s costly to the team,” Jones said. “I have to work on that and making sure I’m securing the ball.”

Pivotal play: The Giants trailed by five with just over 10 minutes remaining in the game. It was third-and-6 for Dallas from their own 15-yard line. Quarterback Dak Prescott took a deep shot down the left sideline to Cooper.

There was some normal hand-fighting from Cooper and rookie cornerback DeAndre Baker. A flag was thrown. Shurmur and defensive coordinator James Bettcher by their reactions were visibly furious on the sideline. It was a questionable call, at best. The fans, the broadcast and most everybody in the stadium (aside from the Cowboys) seemed to think it should have been a no-call.

It wasn’t. Instead, Dallas got a first down near midfield and five plays later put the game away with Cooper’s demoralizing touchdown.

“It just seems like they don’t go our way,” Giants safety Jabrill Peppers said. “If you guys remember mine from Tampa Bay, it was really ticky tack, I thought that was going to be the tone for the whole year but there is no real consistency. At the end of the day, you can’t even give them the chance to the throw the flag. You have to stay clean, play with good eyes and technique and make a play on the ball.”

Shurmur added: “I wasn’t [looking at that as a penalty]. But it is what it is.”

He originally declined surgery after suffering a Grade 2 abdominal strain in Week 2 against the Wholesale Atlanta Falcons Jerseys. He missed six games before returning Sunday against the Bears.

The Eagles also released veteran safety Andrew Sendejo on Tuesday, opening up a second spot on the roster.

A wide receiver is expected to be added. One option could be Jordan Matthews, who worked out for the Eagles on Tuesday, a source confirmed.

Matthews, a former second-round pick of the Eagles, has had two separate stints in Philadelphia, including one in 2018. He most recently played for the Wholesale San Francisco 49ers Jerseys, appearing in one game before being released in late October. He has a strong relationship with quarterback Carson Wentz and a deep knowledge of coach Doug Pederson’s system, which would make for an easy acclimation process as the Eagles look to bolster a receiving corps that has struggled to produce in Jackson’s absence.

Jackson, a two-time Pro Bowl selection, was reacquired by the Eagles in an offseason trade with the Wholesale Tampa Bay Buccaneers Jerseys. He has been limited to three games this season, catching nine passes for 159 yards and two touchdowns.

LONDON — In the Wholesale Houston Texans Jerseys first game since he tore his pectoral muscle, J.J. Watt couldn’t do anything to help out his teammates. So he tweeted.

SANTA CLARA, Calif. — On Friday, the Wholesale San Francisco 49ers Jerseys got terrible injury news when an MRI revealed that linebacker Kwon Alexander will miss the rest of the season because of a torn pectoral. But after a weekend of rest, the injury news is about to get a lot better.

As the Niners prepare for a Monday night showdown against the Wholesale Seattle Seahawks Jerseys (8:15 p.m. ET, ESPN), they’re expected to begin welcoming back a quartet of starters from previous injuries. It’s a group that includes tackles Joe Staley and Mike McGlinchey, fullback Kyle Juszczyk and cornerback Ahkello Witherspoon.

From that group, Staley and Juszczyk look most likely to return, but it’s possible McGlinchey and Witherspoon will also be back.

While the loss of Alexander is big, the return of so many pieces has the 49ers believing they can improve on their 8-0 start.

“The ceiling is however high you want to make it,” defensive tackle DeForest Buckner said. “We’ve been playing really well with guys down and the guys have been stepping up really well. To have some of those guys back is going to be very exciting. We’ve been missing them for a couple weeks and the fact we’re 8-0 without them just shows the depth on this team.”

Starting with Staley’s broken fibula in Week 2 against Cincinnati, the Niners had a streak of three games where they lost at least one starter to injury. Witherspoon injured his foot the following week against Pittsburgh, and McGlinchey and Juszczyk followed with knee injuries in the next game against Cleveland.

Each time, there were questions about the Niners’ ability to replace each player. What’s happened since has been one of the most important developments of this season. With unproven youngsters such as tackles Justin Skule and Daniel Brunskill, cornerback Emmanuel Moseley and tight end-turned-fullback Ross Dwelley, the Niners proved deeper than they’ve been in recent seasons.

All four replacements have played better than expected, with the help of creative scheming by the coaches to help make the transitions more manageable.

“Just being able to have so many guys that can fill in, it’s incredible,” tight end George Kittle said. “Being able to fill the cog in the machine and just keep rolling. Just being able to get those reps, that was huge. That’s how you get better at the game is get live reps against guys.”

Getting the likes of six-time Pro Bowler Staley, three-time Pro Bowler Juszczyk and developing building block McGlinchey back should allow coach Kyle Shanahan to open his playbook further. The Niners had been heavy on ’21′ personnel, with Juszczyk playing all over the formation, but they’ve cut down on it since his injury. Dwelley has proved a solid replacement, but his playing time at fullback hasn’t been the same as what the 49ers do with Juszczyk.

While the two tackles and Juszczyk have healed, the 49ers have added more looks out of ’11′ personnel (three receivers, one tight end and one running back) and ’12′ personnel (two receivers, two tight ends, one running back). They’ve even turned to some ’13′ personnel with three tight ends.

That experience mixing things up should serve the Niners well moving forward and allow Shanahan to get even more creative.

“We’ve found two guys who can do it and you wouldn’t have known that if Joe and Mike were playing the entire time,” cornerback Richard Sherman said of the tackles. “You’d still have a lot of questions like, ‘Oh, if one of these guys gets hurt, who is going to step in?’ Those questions have been answered, and even with Juice coming back it gives us even more versatility because the guys who have had to fill in for Juice are going to be able to be just as versatile. Kyle [Shanahan] is going to be able to call the offense as he has whether Juice is in or not.”

As for the defense, Moseley has been so good in Witherspoon’s stead that some have wondered if Witherspoon will have to win his job back. Shanahan and coordinator Robert Saleh have said they don’t believe in players losing their job to injury, but they trust Moseley.

Suddenly, a cornerback group that seemed to lack depth behind Sherman has multiple options.

“Emmanuel has been fantastic and been one of the best corners in the league statistically,” Sherman said. “Anytime you are playing like that, it shows depth … it gives everybody confidence in what we can do with who we have.”

The Niners don’t play on the road again until Dec. 1. The schedule will get tougher, but the Niners believe that as it does, they will only get better as they get healthier — a scary proposition for a team that hasn’t lost yet.

“We’ll heal up, get some guys back and make a run at this thing,” quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo said. “We’ve got a long way to go but we’re on the right track.”

While Watt couldn’t help against the Jaguars, his teammates were able to hold the Jaguars to three cups … or points, for the rest of the game. It’s only one game, but the Texans showed signs they might be OK going forward without the three-time Wholesale NFL Jerseys Defensive Player of the Year.

The Texans’ defensive game plan against the Jaguars on Sunday, safety Justin Reid said, was to take the ball out of Leonard Fournette’s hands. The Jaguars came into the game ranked fifth in rushing, averaging 136.5 rushing yards per game. Houston held Fournette — who entered the game No. 2 in rushing yards and No. 1 in attempts — to 40 yards on 11 carries.

“[Fournette] and [Panthers running back] Christian McCaffrey, they get the most touches in the league, so a big part of this game plan was just get them out of their usual system,” Reid said. “Get the balls away from him. Force them in passing situations.”

When the Texans forced quarterback Gardner Minshew into passing situations, the goal was to keep him in the pocket. Houston learned when they played Minshew and the Jaguars in Week 2 that Minshew makes his biggest plays when he can scramble. “We learned how elusive he was from that game, and then the games after,” Reid said.

On Sunday, Minshew ran for 34 yards on four carries, but the defense was able to keep him in check through the air. The quarterback completed 27 of 47 passes for 309 yards, but didn’t throw a touchdown. He threw two interceptions.

The defense was also focused on making sure they didn’t give up any big plays to Minshew.

“We really wanted to make them chip their way down the field and make them play sound and see if they can handle trying to string together a 13-, 14-play drive,” Reid said. “We didn’t just want to give up a two-play, big-play drive. So we just kept everything underneath us, played sound, fundamental technique.”

Jacksonville had only one drive of more than 11 plays, and that resulted in turning the ball over on downs with 10 minutes and 58 seconds left in the game. Houston allowed only four plays of 20-plus yards, and only one play that went 20 or more yards through the air. It’s a credit to the Texans’ depleted secondary that was without safety Tashaun Gipson and cornerbacks Bradley Roby and Lonnie Johnson. Veteran cornerback Johnathan Joseph, who played through injuries to his neck and shoulder, called the victory over Jacksonville “one of our best games” as a secondary.

When Watt was put on injured reserve, he led the NFL in pressures and quarterback hits. Against the Jaguars, the Texans had four sacks, three of which came in the second half. Minshew was hit five times after halftime as well. Outside linebacker Whitney Mercilus acknowledged that in the first half, the Texans weren’t getting as much pressure as they wanted, but said Houston was focused on having a “disciplined rush.” According to Mercilus, that paid off in the second half.

All week, Texans players acknowledged that they’d obviously miss Watt but that they couldn’t dwell on it. The NFL cliché “next man up” was said over and over again. After all, Houston has been through this before. This is the third time in the last four seasons that Watt will spend at least half of the season on injured reserve.

In the past, the Texans have had players step up to overcome the absence of Watt. In 2016, when Watt needed back surgery, Mercilus had 7.5 sacks and the defense ranked No. 1 — and secondary No. 2 — in the NFL in yards allowed per game. In 2017, when Watt broke his leg, Jadeveon Clowney had a career-high 9.5 sacks.

Who will step up this year? It could be Mercilus, the Texans’ only proven pass-rusher after Houston traded Clowney before the start of the season. But head coach Bill O’Brien has said it will be a group of players who will replace Watt. The Texans took a step in the right direction against the Jaguars, which is a welcome sign before the tough three-game stretch Houston has coming up after the bye week: games against division leaders Wholesale Baltimore Ravens Jerseys, Wholesale Indianapolis Colts Jerseys and Wholesale New England Patriots Jerseys.

MILWAUKEE — The Wholesale Milwaukee Brewers Jerseys cut $15 million in payroll for next season, trading right-hander Chase Anderson to the Wholesale Toronto Blue Jays Jerseyson Monday for prospect Chad Spanberger and declining a $7.5 million option on first baseman Eric Thames.

Anderson was 8-4 with a 4.21 ERA in 27 starts and five relief appearances. Milwaukee had planned to decline his $8.5 million option, which would have made him eligible for salary arbitration. Toronto exercised the option after the trade.

Thames, who turns 33 on Sunday, hit .247 with 25 homers and 61 RBIs in 149 games last season. He will receive a $1 million buyout.

Signed to a three-year, $16 million contract after establishing himself in the South Korean League, Thames hit 59 homers in three seasons with Milwaukee.

While Thames does not have six years of major league service, his contract included a provision stating he would become a free agent when the deal ended.

MLB’s reward season kicked off Sunday night with the announcement of the Gold Glove awards. (Finalists for the other major awards will be announced Monday, with rookies of the year winners named Nov. 11, followed by managers of the year on Nov. 12, Cy Young winners on Nov. 13 and MVPs on Nov. 14.)

Here are some nuggets about this year’s Gold Glove winners:

Wholesale Colorado Rockies Jerseys third baseman Nolan Arenado has won a Gold Glove in each of the first seven seasons of his career. That’s the second-longest streak to begin a career in Wholesale MLB Jerseys history, according to Elias Sports Bureau research (Ichiro Suzuki, 10).

Check in on the trades, free-agent signings and more, from now until pitchers and catchers. MLB Offseason page »

• Milwaukee Brewers center fielder Lorenzo Cain won his first career Gold Glove. Cain had 112 career defensive runs saved before this season, the most of any active outfielder to have never won a Gold Glove.

• The Wholesale Houston Astros Jerseys ‘ Zack Greinke won his sixth career Gold Glove, although it was the National League award from his time with the Wholesale Arizona Diamondbacks Jerseys. All of those have come in the past six seasons. The only pitchers with longer streaks are Jim Kaat (16 straight), Greg Maddux (13), Bob Gibson (nine) and Bobby Shantz (eight).

Wholesale Boston Red Sox Jerseys right fielder Mookie Betts won his fourth straight Gold Glove. He joins right fielder Dwight Evans (1981-85) as the only players in Red Sox history to win at least four straight.

• Left fielder Alex Gordon, whose contract option was not picked up by the Wholesale Kansas City Royals Jerseys, won his seventh career Gold Glove. The only player in Royals history with more is second baseman Frank White (eight).

Perez always puts defense 1st as he wins Gold Glove AwardCleveland Indians catcher Roberto Perez says he takes great pride in his defense and it is great to have his efforts recognized with the 2019 AL Gold Glove Award.
Wholesale Cleveland Indians Jerseys catcher Roberto Perez, who won the first Gold Glove of his career, had no passed balls this season in 993⅔ innings caught. That’s the most innings caught without a passed ball since Johnny Bench in 1975 (1,002⅔ innings).

• In addition to Perez, seven other players won their first Gold Glove: Wholesale Seattle Mariners Jerseys pitcher Mike Leake, Wholesale Chicago White Sox Jerseys second baseman Yolmer Sanchez, Wholesale Philadelphia Phillies Jerseys catcher J.T. Realmuto, Wholesale St. Louis Cardinals Jerseyssecond baseman Kolten Wong, Diamondbacks left fielder David Peralta, Los Angeles Dodgers right fielder Cody Bellinger and center fielder Cain of the Brewers.

“We’ll continue to be in touch with Eric and his agent and we’ll see if there’s a fit at some point later in the offseason but at this point, at the dollar value associated with his club option and with the market we see developing at that position, we thought it was in the best interest to decline the option,” Brewers general manager David Stearns said,

Anderson, 31, was 38-27 with a 3.38 ERA in 166 appearances over four seasons with the Brewers, who acquired him with infielders Aaron Hill and Isan Diaz from Arizona in January 2016 for Jean Segura and Tyler Wagner.

Anderson went 12-4 with a 2.74 ERA in 2017 and signed a two-year, $11.75 million contract with a pair of club options.

“Given there was a team that clearly had interest in him and we were able to get back a prospect that we liked, we thought it was the right move to make,” Stearns said.

Spanberger, a first baseman and outfielder, hit .237 with 13 homers and 59 RBIs this season at Double-A New Hampshire. Selected by Colorado in the sixth round of the 2017 amateur draft, he was acquired by Toronto in the July 2018 trade that sent reliever Seunghwan Oh to Colorado.

“We think he fills in nicely at the upper levels of the minor league system,” Stearns said.

Milwaukee also exercised a $1.85 million option on catcher Manny Pina, who would have received a $150,000 buyout if it had been declined. The 32-year-old hit .228 with seven homers and 25 RBIs in 158 at-bats this season, his fourth with the Brewers.

Nolan Arenado extended his streak of winning a Rawlings Gold Glove Award in every season of his career on Sunday, when the Wholesale Colorado Rockies Jerseys star captured the award for National League third basemen for the seventh consecutive year.

Arenado has won the award each year since he debuted in 2013. With this year’s win, he moved into sole possession of fourth place for the most Gold Gloves among third basemen and just one behind Scott Rolen for third place all time.

Only Wholesale Baltimore Orioles Jerseys legend Brooks Robinson, who won 16 Gold Gloves in a row from 1960 to ’75, and Mike Schmidt, who won 10, have more than Arenado. Robinson has the most Gold Gloves among all position players, but at just 26 years old, Arenado has a chance to catch him.

Wholesale Kansas City Royals Jerseys veteran Alex Gordon also won his seventh career Gold Glove on Sunday, claiming the AL left fielder award for the third straight year to move into a tie for 14th-most among outfielders.

The Wholesale Arizona Diamondbacks Jerseys had four Gold Glove winners on their team this season, including both pitchers, Mike Leake and Zack Greinke, though the two never played with each other. Leake won the American League pitcher’s award for his time with the Wholesale Seattle Mariners Jerseys before Arizona acquired him at the trade deadline on July 31, the day the Diamondbacks dealt Greinke to the Wholesale Houston Astros Jerseys.

Shortstop Nick Ahmed, who won his second straight Gold Glove, and left fielder David Peralta were the other Diamondbacks honored Sunday. Peralta was one of three National League outfielders who won their first Gold Gloves, joining Milwaukee’s Lorenzo Cain and the Dodgers’ Cody Bellinger.

The Wholesale Oakland Athletics Jerseys had a pair of winners, as first baseman Matt Olson and third baseman Matt Chapman both won for the second straight season. The Wholesale Cleveland Indians Jerseys had two Gold Glovers in shortstop Francisco Lindor, who won the second of his career, and catcher Roberto Perez, a first-time winner.

MINNEAPOLIS — The Wholesale Minnesota Twins Jerseys have declined a $7.5 million option on left-hander Martin Perez and made a $17.8 million qualifying offer to All-Star right-hander Jake Odorizzi.

Perez will receive a $500,000 buyout as part of a contract agreed to last winter that paid him a $3.5 million salary this year.

The 28-year-old was 10-7 with a 5.12 ERA in 29 starts and three relief appearances this year, striking out 135 and walking 67 in 165 1/3 innings. He is 53-56 with a 4.72 ERA in eight major league seasons that include 157 starts and 16 relief appearances.

Odorizzi, 29, was a career-best 15-7 with a 3.51 ERA and a career-high 178 strikeouts. He is 22-17 in two seasons since the Twins acquired him from Tampa Bay.

Minnesota also said Monday the Wholesale New York Mets Jerseys claimed left-hander Stephen Gonsalves off waivers. Minnesota right-hander Kohl Stewart refused an outright assignment to Triple-A Rochester and elected to become a free agent.

The second baseman awards went to the White Sox’s Yolmer Sanchez and the Cardinals’ Kolten Wong, who both won for the first time.

Also in the American League, Red Sox right fielder Mookie Betts won for the fourth straight season, and Tampa Bay center fielder Kevin Kiermaier won his third career Gold Glove after a two-year absence.

In the National League, Cubs first baseman Anthony Rizzo won his third career Gold Glove and second in a row, while catcher J.T. Realmuto earned his first award in his first season with the Phillies after a preseason trade from the Marlins.

Managers and up to six coaches per team vote for the awards in their league and cannot choose their own players. For the first time, the defensive index from the Society for American Wholesale Baseball Jerseys Research was used, and it comprised about 25% of the vote, with the managers and coaches ballots the rest.

Custom Adidas Hockey Jersey China Design Online

Hockey Hall of Famer and popular longtime NHL executive Jim Gregory, best known for being one of the first to start bringing European players to North America, has died at the age of 83.

The league said Gregory died Wednesday at his home in Toronto. A cause of death was not disclosed.

Gregory spent a decade as general manager of the Wholesale Toronto Maple Leafs Jerseys from the late 1960s until the late 1970s and was one of the first to import European players, most notably Swede Borje Salming. He spent almost 40 years with the NHL as director of central scouting, executive director of hockey operations and senior vice president of hockey operations and supervision.

USA Hockey announced Wednesday that it is increasing penalties for racial and derogatory slurs of any kind by way of a directive from the governing body’s president.

Anyone penalized under the rule that covers racial and derogatory slurs will now receive a match penalty, which comes with an automatic five-minute major and disqualification from the game. Additionally, offenders will be suspended until an investigation and hearing can be held by a governing USA Hockey affiliate or junior league. The governing affiliates and leagues will have 30 days to complete the investigation and hearing, and further discipline can be doled out at the discretion of those entities.

Previously, such incidents would come with an automatic game misconduct and additional one-game suspension, but member affiliates and leagues could issue further discipline at their discretion.

Jim Smith, president of USA Hockey, said in a press release that he made the decision to elevate the previous penalty as an increased deterrent.

“We continue to get reports of disturbing incidents of racial and other derogatory slurs, behavior which is reprehensible and has absolutely no place in our game, especially around our children,” he said. “For reasons I cannot explain or understand, the current penalty in place does not seem to be enough of a deterrent to stop this type of conduct.”

A USA Hockey spokesperson said that the move was not the result of a specific incident or increased reports of incidents. The spokesperson said that the organization does receive a number of reports of such incidents each year and this directive is aimed at getting those numbers “closer to zero.” A presidential directive as opposed to a board-reviewed rule change is rare, but has been used in the past, according to the spokesperson.

“The use of hateful language is a hurdle to creating a welcoming environment for families that want to be involved in our sport,” said USA Hockey executive director Pat Kelleher in a statement. “Eradicating this kind of behavior from our game is critical as we continue to make a positive impact on society through hockey.”

Wholesale Winnipeg Jets Jerseys general manager Kevin Cheveldayoff said absent defenseman Dustin Byfuglien has had ankle surgery and the team was not “directly involved” in the decision.

The Jets also announced that forward Mark Letestu will be out at least six months because of myocarditis, an inflammation of the heart muscle.

Cheveldayoff declined to discuss the team’s relationship with Byfulgien other than to call it “complicated.” He did not say whether Byfuglien might return to the team this season. The 34-year-old player was suspended without pay after failing to report to training camp in September, and there was talk that he may retire. Byfuglien had been granted a leave by the team for personal reasons.

The team said that the long-term health of the 34-year-old Letestu is not in question. The myocarditis is usually the result of a viral infection.

Letestu signed a one-year, $700,000 contract with Winnipeg this summer and had appeared in seven games with no points.

Cheveldayoff spoke Thursday in San Jose, California, a day after it was reported Byfuglien had surgery for a high ankle sprain last week in his native Minnesota.

Cheveldayoff wouldn’t say whether there was a difference of opinion between the team and Byfuglien’s camp on what kind of procedure was required stemming from the injury late last season.

The Jets blue line was decimated in the offseason. Tyler Myers, Jacob Trouba and Ben Chiarot all left as free agents before Byfuglien didn’t show.

The Jets, who are trying to stay above water at 6-7, play the Wholesale San Jose Sharks Jerseys on Friday, but they will be without star winger Patrik Laine (lower-body injury).

“It is impossible to express the extent to which the National Hockey League family adored Jim Gregory and the loss we feel as a result of his passing,” Wholesale NHL Jerseys commissioner Gary Bettman said. “Jim Gregory wasn’t just a great ‘hockey man,’ though he certainly was that. He was a great man — a devoted husband to Rosalie, his wife of 60 years; father to Andrea, Valerie, Maureen and David; grandfather of 13; and mentor and friend to too many to number.”

Known around the sport as “Mr. Gregory,” he served as chairman of the Wholesale Hockey Jerseys Hall of Fame selection committee from 1998-2014 and was a fixture at the NHL draft and other league events. He’d hand out silver sticks to players for reaching 1,000 games played, present new Hall of Famers with their rings and call names on the second day of the draft.

“There’s no better man and no better ambassador that represented the NHL so honorably,” retired defenseman Aaron Ward said on Twitter. “He was everywhere, at every event, and he’d immediately make you smile just seeing him. That says enough about the man.”

Gregory was elected to the Hall of Fame as a builder in 2007. Beyond his years running the Maple Leafs, he was central to the NHL’s use of video to review goals and the expansion of the league’s Central Scouting system.

BOSTON — Ottawa forward Scott Sabourin is being kept overnight at a hospital after being taken off the ice on a stretcher with his head immobilized following a collision with Boston forward David Backes early in the first period of Saturday night’s 5-2 loss to the Bruins.

Senators coach D.J. Smith said the team would know more about the nature and extent of Sabourin’s injury on Sunday. During the game, the team sent an update on its Twitter feed that Sabourin was conscious and speaking with the attending doctors while leaving the arena.

He gave the crowd a brief “thumbs up” as he was leaving the ice.

NEW YORK — Wholesale Calgary Flames Jerseys forward Milan Lucic has been suspended for two games without pay by the NHL for roughing Wholesale Columbus Blue Jackets Jerseys forward Kole Sherwood during Saturday’s game.

The league announced Lucic’s punishment Sunday.

The incident happened five minutes into the second period of Calgary’s 3-0 win. Lucic punched Sherwood behind the Flames net, knocking him to the ice, after Sherwood had poked at Calgary goaltender David Rittich’s pads and received a slashing minor.

Lucic was assessed two minor penalties for roughing. Sherwood left the game but later returned.

The league said in an explanatory video that Lucic’s history of “recent and similar punches” warranted the suspension. He has been fined once and suspended once for punching other opponents since 2016.

In his first season with Calgary, Lucic has three assists and 30 penalty minutes over 16 games.

Sabourin had skated up to make a hit on Backes when the players’ helmets collided. Sabourin immediately fell to the ice, appearing to be unconscious, and he lay motionless for a brief period.

Medical staff from both teams rushed to Sabourin, and a Bruins trainer quickly signaled for a stretcher. There was a large blood spot on the ice under Sabourin’s face.

TV cameras showed Backes visibly upset, looking as if he was fighting back tears as he watched medical personnel attend to Sabourin. An Ottawa player could be seen consoling Backes, putting his glove on his shoulder. Most of the players on both teams took knees in front their benches and skated over to Sabourin when he was finally put on the stretcher after a delay that lasted about 10 minutes.

OTTAWA, Ontario — The Wholesale Ottawa Senators Jerseys say forward Scott Sabourin has a fractured nose and is expected to be released from the hospital later Sunday, a day after being taken off the ice on a stretcher during a game in Boston.

Sabourin was taken from the ice with his head immobilized following a collision with David Backes in which the players’ helmets hit at nearly full speed early in the first period of Boston’s 5-2 win on Saturday night.

Sabourin gave the crowd a “thumbs up” as he was taken from the arena.

The 27-year-old Sabourin posted a photo to his Instagram on Sunday morning of him in a hospital bed while smiling with a chipped tooth, a black eye and a few cuts around his face.

“Thanks for all the well wishes. Hope to be back out on the ice in the near future,” Sabourin wrote with the post.

After colliding with Backes, Sabourin fell to the ice and appeared to be unconscious. There was a large blood spot on the ice under his face.

Backes went to the dressing room after Sabourin was taken from the ice, and didn’t return. The Bruins announced that Backes had an upper-body injury. He was visibly upset, fighting back tears, as medical personnel attended to Sabourin.

Sabourin has played in 11 Wholesale NHL Jerseys games, all this season, with one goal and one assist.

Fans gave Sabourin a loud ovation when he was taken from the ice. Backes went to the dressing room after Sabourin was wheeled off.

The Bruins announced in the second period that Backes had an upper-body injury and would not return.

ORLANDO, Fla. — It was a pretty typical performance for Giannis Antetokounmpo.

Donte DiVincenzo was a bit of a surprise.

Antetokounmpo had 29 points and 14 rebounds, and the Milwaukee Bucks pounded the Wholesale Orlando Magic Jerseys 123-91 on Friday night.

While the reigning Wholesale NBA Jerseys MVP was great once again, DiVincenzo scored 14 points in his most extensive action so far this season. He played two minutes in the Bucks’ first four games and had not taken a shot.

DiVincenzo went 4 for 7 from 3-point range. He also contributed three assists and two steals in 17 minutes.

“He hasn’t played all season, and one thing I told him was to stay ready,” Antetokounmpo said. “You’re going to get your opportunity, and he was ready tonight.”

Eric Bledsoe added 18 points, six rebounds and six assists for Milwaukee, which was coming off a 116-105 loss at Boston on Wednesday night. Khris Middleton added 16 points and six rebounds.

The Bucks grabbed control by making nine 3-pointers during a key stretch in the first half. They went 17 for 47 from beyond the arc on the night.

Evan Fournier led Orlando with 19 points. Nikola Vucevic had 14 points and seven rebounds.

Brook Lopez, Robin Lopez, Bledsoe, Ersan Ilyasova (two), Sterling Brown, George Hill and DiVincenzo (two) connected from long range during a 32-7 run for the Bucks.

“You could feel things shifting in that first quarter,” DiVincenzo said. “Everybody on our team is so unselfish. We have guys who could get 25 every night, but instead we have a balanced attack and guys getting open looks.”

After making eight of their first nine shots on their way to a 20-7 lead, the Magic were outscored 40-9 over the next 11 minutes, most of it by Milwaukee’s reserves.

“Orlando was doing a lot of things well early, but our bench came in and flipped the script,” said Bucks coach Mike Budenholzer. “We had really good bench play tonight.”

The Bucks led 79-51 after Middleton scored seven straight points midway through the third quarter.

Milwaukee shot 50.5 percent for the game. The Bucks also had a 57-41 rebound advantage and scored 54 points in the paint.

“They were wide open, wide open … wide open. It wasn’t like they made all these great shots, it was wide open,” Magic coach Steve Clifford said. “It was an unacceptable effort against a great team and they played well.”

TIP-INS

Bucks: Seventeen of the Bucks’ first 21 shots were 3-pointers. … G Pat Connaughton left the floor with a shoulder injury in the third quarter, but returned to the game. … Kyle Korver rested. Budenholzer said the Bucks would look for periodic games off for the 38-year-old guard.

Magic: F Amile Jefferson, who had been on a two-way contract with Orlando, signed a standard contract Friday. … C Mo Bamba (load management) and G Michael Carter-Williams (bruised hip) were out.

NO MAGIC TOUCH

The Magic came into the game last in the NBA in scoring (95.8 points per game) and shooting (.395) and second-last in 3-point shooting (.288). They didn’t do anything to help themselves, shooting 37.4 percent and scoring under 100 points for the fifth straight time.

LOS ANGELES — Anthony Davis is four games into his first season with the Wholesale Los Angeles Lakers Jerseys , and he’s already in good company.

Elgin Baylor, Wilt Chamberlain, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, George Mikan, Shaquille O’Neal — and now AD.

Davis had the fourth 40-point, 20-rebound game of his seven-year career and set a franchise record with 26 made free throws as the Lakers rallied in the second half for a convincing 120-91 victory over the Wholesale Memphis Grizzlies Jerseys on Tuesday night.

He joined those Laker greats as LA players to get 40 points and 20 rebounds.

“It’s an honor to be on that list with those legends but more important is we got the win,” said Davis, who was 26 of 27 from the line. “It was a grind in the first half and my teammates trusted me. I just tried to be a monster on the glass.”

It is Davis’ first 40-20 game since 2016. He’s the first Laker to do it since O’Neal in 2003.

Davis played only 31 minutes. According to the Elias Sports Bureau, he is the first player to have a 40-20 game in 31 minutes or less since 1954-55. Prior to Davis, the quickest 40-20 game was 33 minutes by Baylor in 1961.

Davis is also the fourth player in league history and first since Michael Jordan in 1987 to make 26 or more free throws.

“This solidifies why we went out and got him. He was big time for us,” said LeBron James, who scored 23 points for the Lakers. Los Angeles is off to its first 3-1 start since winning its first eight in 2010.

Davis was questionable two hours before the game due to a right shoulder injury suffered in Sunday’s win over Charlotte. He did some dribbling and shooting on the court before being cleared.

Davis had 16 points and nine rebounds in the first quarter but went back to the locker room at the start of the second to get the shoulder checked and re-taped. Coach Frank Vogel thought he might have to go the rest of the game without Davis until he saw him come back to the bench.

“He gutted it out playing in some pain and was dominant. They didn’t have an answer and he was terrific,” Vogel said.

Los Angeles trailed for most of the first half but took a 49-47 lead into the locker room at halftime when Davis grabbed a rebound, drove down the court and tipped in his own miss at the buzzer.

The Grizzlies (1-3) led 65-59 with seven minutes remaining in the third quarter when the Lakers went on a 27-2 run to close out the quarter. Davis scored 16 points during the rally, with all but two coming at the line. The final 10 Lakers’ points in the quarter came via Davis’ free throws.

“Everyone was playing well,” Davis said. “I was just trying to be aggressive. It was a close game until the third quarter. I knew some of their players were in foul trouble and tried to get them out of the game. ”

Grizzlies coach Taylor Jenkins agreed with Davis’ sentiment, saying “I thought he was super aggressive, and you are rewarded when you are aggressive.”

Davis said his shoulder was still sore after the game, but he thinks it will improve since the Lakers have a couple days off.

Memphis raced to a 15-2 lead before Los Angeles started to work its way back. Ja Morant led the Grizzlies with 16 points, and Jonas Valanciunas added 14 points and 11 boards.

Morant, who was the second pick in the June draft, had only three points in the first half before finding his groove in the second.

“Coming into an environment like this we have to play all four quarters,” Morant said. “It was wow moment coming in (facing James and Davis) but I was still trying to go out and play my game.”

TIP-INS

Grizzlies: Memphis finished 22 of 23 from the line but was 7 of 34 on 3-pointers. … Grayson Allen came off the bench to score 13 points. … Dillon Brooks’ four-point play early in the first quarter was the third of his career. That ties him with Shane Battier and Troy Daniels for second in franchise history behind Mike Conley’s seven.

Lakers: Avery Bradley had 12 points and Kentavious Caldwell-Pope added 11, with all but one coming in the fourth quarter. … Los Angeles finished 33 of 39 on free throws.

CHICAGO — Trailing by one in the closing minutes, the Wholesale Chicago Bulls Jerseys were looking for someone to hit the big shots. Zach LaVine delivered the baskets they needed.

LaVine scored 26 points, Otto Porter Jr. added 22, and the Bulls overcame a big effort by Derrick Rose against his former team to beat the Wholesale Detroit Pistons Jerseys 112-106 on Friday night.

Rose delighted the hometown crowd with 23 points and seven assists. But the Bulls came away with the win after dropping three in a row while handing the Pistons their fourth loss in five games.

LaVine put Chicago ahead for good with back-to-back 3-pointers and added four free throws in the final 11.5 seconds.

“Somebody’s got to step up to the plate,” he said. “I think I’m that dude.”

Porter did his part, shooting 8 of 12 and nailing three 3′s. Wendell Carter Jr. added 16 points and 11 rebounds, and the Bulls snapped a seven-game losing streak against the Pistons.

ROSE’S RETURN

Rose got a loud ovation when he entered the game in the first quarter and heard those familiar “MVP! MVP!” chants from the Chicago crowd throughout the night. The South Side product flashed some of the old explosiveness that made him the No. 1 overall draft pick in 2008 and Wholesale NBA Jerseys youngest MVP three years later, before injuries derailed his promising career with the Bulls.

“I felt the love out there,” Rose said. “I wish we would have gotten the win, but coming here is always special and playing here is always special.”

Andre Drummond led Detroit with 25 points and 24 rebounds — his third 20-20 game this season.

Luke Kennard scored 15 and made three 3-pointers. But the Pistons missed their first 14 from beyond the arc before he hit one late in the first half and were 6 of 29 in the game.

PULLING AWAY

Chicago, which led by as much as 16, trailed 100-99 after a layup by Tony Snell.

But LaVine responded by hitting back-to-back 3′s to put the Bulls back on top 105-100 with three minutes left.

Chicago was clinging to a 107-104 lead with just over a minute remaining when Tomas Satoransky got called for traveling. But Rose missed a runner.

After LaVine missed a layup, Snell missed a 3 for Detroit. Carter then made 1 of 2 free throws with 17.5 seconds remaining to make it 108-104. Kennard then missed a 3, and LaVine hit two free throws, bumping the lead to six with 11.5 seconds left.

QUOTABLE

“He is as tough a cover in the league as there is right now, with his ability to split, his ability to burst, his ability to sneak and his ability to shoot the ball. I’m really happy for him.” — Bulls coach Jim Boylen on Rose.

TIP-INS

Pistons: Despite the poor 3-point shooting, Detroit shot just over 48 percent overall. … The Pistons still don’t have a timetable for the return of star F Blake Griffin (left hamstring and posterior knee soreness), who has missed the first six games. “Obviously, we’re all hoping that it’s sooner than later,” said assistant Sidney Lowe, who handled pregame media duties with coach Dwane Casey a game-time decision because of an illness. “He was out there on his own today doing some stuff.” … Casey worked the game.

Bulls: F Lauri Markkanen hurt his left side and missed the final 9:30 after being held out down the stretch two nights earlier at Cleveland. Markkanen could have returned to the game and does not expect the injury to linger. … Boylen expects F Chandler Hutchison (strained left hamstring) to practice Saturday and travel with the team to Indiana for Sunday’s game. He wasn’t sure if the second-year pro will be ready to make his season debut against the Pacers. … Rose wasn’t the only former Bulls player to get a big ovation. The crowd greeted former teammate Joakim Noah with a big one when he was shown on the videoboard in the second quarter.

Undrafted point guard Kendrick Nunn has begun his Wholesale Miami Heat Jerseys career on a record pace, scoring more points in his first five games than anyone in the past 25 years except Kevin Durant and Jerry Stackhouse.

His 28-point performance against the Wholesale Atlanta Hawks Jerseys on Thursday night pushed his points total to 112, the most by any player in their first five games with the Heat — including LeBron James (102) and Dwyane Wade (57).

Nunn, 24, began his career with 24 points against Memphis on Oct. 23 and has not stopped scoring since — garnering at least 24 points three times in Miami’s first five games.

Despite going undrafted in 2018, Nunn has outperformed the past 26 No. 1 picks in points — trailing only Shaquille O’Neal, Elvin Hayes, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and David Robinson through their first five career games in the common draft era (1966).

“It comes from hard work, most definitely,” Nunn said after the Heat’s 106-97 win over the Hawks on Thursday. “My faith in Jesus Christ and just hard work, letting it all out on the floor.”

Nunn, 6-foot-2, spent three years at Illinois and one at Oakland University. Nunn was dismissed from Illinois in 2016 after pleading guilty to misdemeanor domestic battery.

Nunn signed a contract with the Wholesale Golden State Warriors Jerseys in July 2018 but was waived three months later. The Heat snatched up Nunn over the summer, signing him to a 3-year, $3.1 million deal.

ASHBURN, Va. –Wholesale Washington Redskins Jerseys Pro Bowl tackle Trent Williams says he no longer trusts the organization and felt they were vindictive in how they waited until the last minute to try to trade him. He also remains upset over how long he said it took them to take care of a cancerous growth on his scalp.

Williams, who ended his holdout Tuesday, spoke publicly for the first time since the end of last season. He held little back.

“There’s no trust there,” Williams said. “There are some things that happened that are hard to look past.”

Williams said he held out because he was upset with the medical staff, though he didn’t name anyone in particular, and because the Redskins wouldn’t give him more guaranteed money in the last two years of his contract. It expires after the 2020 season. He also wouldn’t say whether he’d play for the Redskins this season. He returned because if he hadn’t done so by 4 p.m. Tuesday, he would need the team to apply to the commissioner’s office for his reinstatement. That could have prevented him from getting credit for a year played.

Barnwell: 13 NFL players (and two coaches) with the most at stake this season
It wasn’t until he had a cancer scare that he wanted to end his relationship with the organization. Williams said he was diagnosed with a rare form of cancer called dermatofibrosarcoma protuberans (DFSP). Williams said doctors told him the growth was removed only weeks before it would have reached his skull. And, he said, doctors told him to get his affairs in order. Williams said when he said goodbye to his daughters — ages 9 and 5 — before surgery he did not know if they’d see him again.

“It was cancer. I had a tumor removed from my skull — attached to my skull — it got pretty serious for a second,” Williams said. “I was told some scary things from the doctors. It was definitely nothing to play with. It was one of those things that will change your outlook on life.”

Williams said he first asked the Redskins’ medical staff about the growth on his head six years ago, but he said nothing was done until this offseason. The Redskins, over the past several months, have offered a different version, and sources said they prodded him to seek more medical attention.

In a statement released Thursday evening, the Redskins said they’ve requested that the Wholesale NFL Jerseys Management Council and NFLPA review the medical records and the medical care given to Williams.

“We have requested this review under the NFL’s Collective Bargaining Agreement that provides for an independent third party review of any NFL player’s medical care,” the statement read. “The Redskins continue to prioritize the health and well-being of our players and staff. Due to healthcare and privacy regulations, we are unable to comment further at this time.”

Williams asserts that he was told the lump was “something minor.”

“I mean, the lump continued to grow over the years. It was concerning, but there was no pain involved, and if I’m being told by the very people I put my career in the hands of, people are telling me I’m fine, I’m fine,” he said. “That’s how I looked at it.”

After his 18-minute interview session with reporters at his locker, Williams said he even told doctors to remove the growth during previous surgeries on his knee and his thumb.

But it wasn’t until this offseason when Redskins doctors examined him and told him to go to a specialist.

“They kind of underestimated it, and it was far more advanced than they realized, and I don’t think they realized how long it was there,” Williams said.

From there, he flew on owner Dan Snyder’s plane to Chicago for further examination. That’s where he had the surgery in the winter. Williams said he needed 350 stitches and 75 staples on his head; the diameter of the incision was about that of a softball.

“We literally caught it within weeks of metastasizing through to my brain to my skull,” Williams said. “Extracting it was the only thing they could do. Doing radiology on it would have put a cap on my life. I think 15 years was the most I would have had after I started chemo. So I had to cut it out.”

Monday through Friday, host Mina Kimes brings you an inside look at the most interesting stories at ESPN, as told by the top reporters and insiders on the planet. Listen

All of the emotion from this offseason rushed back to Williams when he walked into the building Tuesday and had to get a physical from a staff he no longer trusted. During his media session, Williams constantly shook his right leg as he sat on a stool in front of his locker.

“It was a lot of emotions. I’m not going to lie and say it wasn’t,” he said. “I almost lost my life. Seriously, I almost lost my life. You’re 30 and coming off seven straight Pro Bowls and a doctor tells you to get your affairs in order, it’s not going to sit well with you. It still doesn’t. It still, even thinking about it, it’s a scary thing to go through. Think how you describe to your 9-year-old, your 5-year-old that daddy might not be here. It’s tough.”

He had two subsequent cosmetic procedures done in the spring.

Williams’ scalp remains sensitive from the surgery; he said it caused him discomfort when he put on a helmet. Because of that, he failed his physical. Redskins interim coach Bill Callahan said they’re trying to have a helmet customized for Williams. However, Williams did not say he would play again for Washington.

Williams said he told the team before their June minicamp that he no longer wanted to play for them. But the Redskins told teams the price tag to obtain Williams was high, and they did not try to aggressively shop him until before Tuesday’s 4 p.m. deadline.

NEW ORLEANS — To say Wholesale Denver Nuggets Jerseys coach Mike Malone wasn’t pleased with his team’s performance Thursday night might be an understatement.

Malone ripped into his team following a 122-107 loss to the previously winless Wholesale New Orleans Pelicans Jerseys.

“I’m embarrassed,” Malone said at his postgame news conference. “That was an embarrassing effort defensively. Gave up 37 fast-break points. You can give all the transition defense rules that you want. To me, transition defense boils down to one thing — effort. Get back. You can tell them. You can lead a horse to water, whatever analogy you want to use. We did not get back.”

Malone called a timeout with 7:53 left in the fourth quarter with his team trailing by 19. On the next offensive possession after the timeout, Pelicans center Jahlil Okafor got a steal on a bad pass from Jamal Murray and ran down the court for a layup.

Malone turned to his bench and immediately replaced four members of his starting lineup and emptied his bench just two minutes later.

“I thought our starting group struggled. I thought they were low energy,” Malone said. “We were lucky to be down by four at halftime, and they come out and punch us in the mouth to start that third quarter.

“I thought tonight was a disappointing, embarrassing effort. I thought guys off the bench played hard, gave effort. We gotta find ways to get our starters to play the same way, because they’re not playing like that right now. They’re just not.”

The Pelicans had 20 fast-break points — more than they had in any of the first four games — in the first 15 minutes and finished with 37. It is tied for the most fast-break points a Nuggets team has allowed under Malone, according to ESPN Stats and Information research.

“We’re a great talk team. We can talk before the season starts about all the things we want to accomplish, and we want to be a contending team,” Malone said. “It’s all bulls—. Don’t tell me about it, show me. And right now we’ve got a lot of guys that aren’t showing me much.”

Malone pointed out reserve Mason Plumlee as someone he wants the rest of the team to play like.

“Every night, he’s on the bench supporting his teammates,” Malone said. “When he goes into the game, he gives 1,000 percent. That’s great to see.

“I thought the guys off the bench were really committed. I got to find a way to get those five starters playing the same way for every minute that they’re on the court, because it’s not happening right now and I gotta figure that out, and that’s on me.”

Plumlee, who played 15 minutes and had 10 points and seven rebounds while fouling out, agreed that the Nuggets struggled in transition.

“They were faster, you know; faster on the break, faster on the boards,” Plumlee said. “They were more into the game all night.”

Nuggets center Nikola Jokic said the Pelicans just outworked them.

“Sometimes it’s communication, sometimes it’s effort, sometimes it’s just the turnovers,” Jokic said of the fast-break points. “It’s not just effort.”

When the Pelicans were in transition, they finished with 1.68 points per play on 13-of-18 shooting, according to ESPN Stats and Information research. When the Nuggets were able to slow them down in the halfcourt, the Pelicans dropped to 0.86 points per play on 28-of-59 shooting.

New Orleans also had a 37-35 edge in rebounding. The Nuggets and Pelicans both finished with just five second-chance points.

Thursday night also represented the regular-season debut of Nuggets rookie Michael Porter Jr, who missed all of last season because of injury. Porter played 21 minutes and finished with a team-high 15 points. He shot 5-of-8 from the floor, including one 3-pointer, and was 4-of-6 from the line.

“It was cool and it was fun, but I was trying to win,” said Porter, who was the only one of Denver’s 10 rotational players to finish with a positive plus-minus (+1). “I’m not really in a great mood right now. At the end of the day, it’s amazing to make my NBA debut, I thank the Lord for the opportunity, but I was trying to get a [win].”

A team source said head athletic trainer Larry Hess spent at least a week with Williams in Chicago. The source also said multiple team officials called Williams during this time and after he was released but those calls weren’t returned.

Williams said he wanted guaranteed money in the final two years of his contract. The final two years of his contract did not include guaranteed money, including next year’s base salary of $12.5 million. The Redskins have long said privately that this situation was about money, and they did not want to give him an extension, fearing a bad precedent. But Williams said he just wanted to be taken care of, especially after seeing quarterback Alex Smith suffer a possible career-ending leg injury last season.

“I’ve represented this franchise in the Pro Bowl the last seven years. To me, I would think that would be good for something,” Williams said.

When last season ended, Williams said he did not envision this day.

“No, no, never. We had conversation or so about the guaranteed money or lack thereof, but it was never me thinking I’d be in any other organization, not in December, not at all,” he said.

Williams said he does not harbor any ill will toward Snyder, adding he has a “ton of respect for Dan. I love him to death. I don’t look at it being his fault.” That’s why he didn’t want to speak publicly during his holdout, fearing his words would make Snyder look bad and be taken out of context.

But when asked if his relationship with team president Bruce Allen could be repaired, Williams said simply, “Next question.” Williams said he did not think the Redskins were vindictive in the beginning.

“I think it turned that way,” he said. “It became a power struggle. It became, ‘No we’re not going to fold for you as a player,’ because that would make it seem to every other player that’s how they get business done. I get that part of it. But I do think it did turn that way over time.”

Nor did Williams think about retiring in the offseason.

“I still love it. It’s still the game. I’m here,” he said. “But I just feel like things could’ve gotten handled a lot better. Obviously, it got us to this point.”

LAKE FOREST, Ill. — Wholesale Chicago Bears Jerseys coach Matt Nagy never envisioned such a tumultuous second season.

Following last year’s surprise NFC North title, the Bears were a trendy pick to reach the Super Bowl. Quarterback Mitchell Trubisky had shown signs of growth with the offensive-minded Nagy as coach. The defense, led by Khalil Mack, looked unstoppable, even after veteran coordinator Vic Fangio left to take over the Wholesale Denver Broncos Jerseys.

Yet, the Bears (3-4) enter the midway point of the season as one of the league’s biggest underachievers. Being named 2018 NFL Coach of the Year has not insulated Nagy from criticism. The 41-year-old coach is forced to do damage control, on a number of issues, almost daily.

Why does Nagy’s offense struggle to score points? What’s wrong with Trubisky? Why haven’t the Bears committed to the run? Why is there zero production at tight end? Why was Roquan Smith deactivated in Week 4? Why not run another play in the closing seconds to give kicker Eddy Pineiro a shorter last-second field goal attempt last week?

On Wednesday, Nagy had to deal with another team-created controversy after Pineiro told reporters he would have preferred to kick that last-second attempt against the Wholesale Los Angeles Chargers Jerseys — the one he missed from 41 yards — in the middle of the field, not on the left hash, which is where the ball was placed when Trubisky took a knee on first down with 43 seconds left.

This is uncharted territory for the affable and engaging Nagy.

After serving under Wholesale Kansas City Chiefs Jerseys coach Andy Reid for seven years, one positive for Nagy is he has a vast network from Reid’s coaching tree across the league he can turn to for advice.

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. — It’s halfway through his rookie season and already Daniel Jones is growing up quickly. That is the result of being thrown into the lion’s den almost immediately for a bad team.

The 22-year-old Wholesale New York Giants Jerseys quarterback is now six games into his NFL career and it’s as if he has been there forever. There has been a magical comeback, some “wow” throws, too many turnovers and a steady mix of ups-and-downs.

Still, Jones’ early progress report at the midway point of the season is overwhelmingly positive.

“He has definitely lived up to the sixth pick of the draft,” former Giants quarterback and CBS analyst Phil Simms said in a phone interview with ESPN. “I think everyone agrees with that. I don’t hear any dissension from all the people that I’m around in business, work with, behind the scenes. In fact, I hear the opposite. ‘Wow, OK, he looks like the really stable, productive quarterback that is going to stand the test of time too.’ I surely don’t look at him and go, ‘He’s having a good streak here.’ I see him as very capable.”

In Jones’ most recent game, he threw for 322 yards with four touchdowns and no interceptions. He became the second rookie in history (along with Tennessee’s Marcus Mariota) to post those numbers in a game, according to ESPN Stats & Information. Still, the strong performance included rookie moments and mistakes. Jones had a sloppy backward pass in the first quarter that was ruled a fumble and returned for a touchdown.

It all seems par for the course at the moment. He is showcasing his talent while simultaneously taking his lumps. But even the mishaps at this point are beneficial. They serve as valuable learning experiences.

For example, Jones’ first game action came against the Cowboys in the season opener. He tried to run late in the game, and instead of stepping out of bounds, he took a big hit from linebacker Leighton Vander Esch that forced a fumble.

Since then, Jones has been quick to slide or step out of bounds to avoid taking unnecessary hits. While his 6-foot-5, 220-pound frame might have allowed him to overpower certain players in college, the NFL is different.

This is the maturation process in progress. The Giants, who have been quick to pat themselves on the back for the pick, are ecstatic publicly and behind closed doors. They believe Jones has a chance to be a star. It starts with the way he handles his business.

“There’s areas in each game where he has shown improvement just playing quarterback,” coach Pat Shurmur said. “Just focused on [Sunday], I think we had the play where he gets hit, the ball goes backwards and it becomes a fumble, but he stays in the moment and he just keeps playing. I keep saying this each week, but he’s tough and he’s resilient and he competes, and he fights and he tries to do everything right.

“There’s plenty of production, things he did in terms of getting us in the right protection. There were some run checks he executed properly. I think he made some nice throws, he scrambled around, a couple of zone reads. The important thing for him is to continue to put more good plays on tape, continue to get the ball off on time and try to eliminate the mistakes that can wrongly affect the game.”

Jones, with 10 touchdown passes and seven interceptions, is on pace for 23 TD passes and 28 turnovers. There is undoubtedly room for major improvements. Jones has talked specifically about ball security and decision-making. On Monday, Shurmur mentioned timing, accuracy and decision-making.

Arm strength was the main public critique of Jones coming out of Duke, a notion the Giants correctly rejected. He didn’t show more than an average arm from inside the stadium during his combine workout. And Simms didn’t see consistent velocity on his passes while watching his college tape.

It hasn’t been a problem in the NFL. If anything, Jones’ arm strength has been a pleasant surprise. He fired a strike from the left hash mark off-balance Sunday in Detroit to the far sideline for a completion.

“When he wants to turn it on, he turns it on,” said Simms, a trend he noticed from his college tape as well. “And I’ve seen that this season.”

Simms has been most impressed with the way Jones reads defenses and moves through his progressions. Those skills are rare for a young quarterback, but they’re likely a product of what Simms described as playing pro football at Duke. Jones was playing in an NFL system, taking hits, under constant pressure, going through his progressions and being forced to throw into tight windows. That prepared him for making the right reads at the next level.

Jones’ teammates have been equally impressed, even if they have had to live with the rookie mistakes. They see a quarterback who isn’t perfect but is becoming more comfortable and progressing. Even the way Jones interacts with them has changed in the six weeks since he’s been named the starter ahead of Eli Manning.

“He’s being more vocal. He’s communicating with receivers. He’s pushing the offensive line. His energy driving down the field and trying to finish drives is going up,” tight end Evan Engram said of Jones. “He’s just coming out of his shell. … It’s noticeable and contagious. It’s something that he’s going to grow into.”

Veteran wide receiver Golden Tate mentioned after Sunday’s loss that Jones is texting with his receivers at night or talking to them constantly in between plays at practice to try to get on the same page. Receiver Bennie Fowler said Jones has taken receivers out to dinner to fortify those relationships.

It’s necessary. They all know the kinks aren’t going to be worked out overnight.

“I think that is important,” Tate said. “I think we’re doing a better job. I don’t think we have it figured out. We have to keep working to get this thing right.”

That’s the thing with Jones. He’s always working to make it right. And that is why the Giants and those watching Jones regularly — like Simms — seem so confident he is trending in the direction.

“There are a handful of guys, head coaches who I stay in communication with,” Nagy said. “The No. 1 one guy is my mentor in coach Reid. So I talk to him all the time. And I’m very, very lucky to have him in my corner. Because he has seen it all. And the best part about coach is he just gives you great advice. He gives you great insight. He’s like a father figure to me. So when you’re in a position where you’re looking for a little advice on how to handle whatever it is, he’s got it. And it always amazes me with the way he says it.”

The Bears don’t play the Chiefs until Week 16, but this Sunday affords Nagy the opportunity to reconnect with another branch of the Reid tree: Wholesale Philadelphia Eagles Jerseys coach Doug Pederson.

Pederson can relate to Nagy’s predicament.

“I look at my first year [2016], we were 7-9 and we were the worst team in the NFL at the time and everybody was talking bad about me and the team and we didn’t have any talent and this, that and the other, not that I pay attention to that stuff,” Pederson said.

The next year the Eagles went 13-3 and won the Super Bowl.

“It all boils down to just you have to trust in your ability as a head football coach what you’re teaching your players, the messaging that you’re teaching your team, the culture you’re trying to establish, and it’s not easy,” Pederson said.

“One of the things that I think in my situation here, is being consistent that way. How I speak to the team, and my message to you guys and my message to the fans and my message to the players; it all has to be consistent. You just have to trust it. If it’s good enough, it’s good enough, and if it’s not, then you know, coaches move on. That’s just the way this business works … ”

Thus far, Chicago isn’t even in shouting distance of an NFC wild-card spot, much less a second-straight division crown. The Bears are in last place in the NFC North, four full games behind the Wholesale Green Bay Packers Jerseys (7-1), and with three fewer wins than the Wholesale Minnesota Vikings Jerseys (6-2). On top of that, Chicago begins a stretch that features road games against the Eagles and the Wholesale Los Angeles Rams Jerseys, two against the Wholesale Detroit Lions Jerseys and a visit from the Wholesale Dallas Cowboys Jerseys, all by the beginning of December.

Nagy needs all the help he can get. Lucky for him that support is in ample supply.

“We’re our own fraternity, and I think that’s pretty cool,” Nagy said.
