New England Patriots rush for 250 yards, dedicate win to grieving RB James White

The New England Patriots rushed for 250 yards in their 36-20 victory Sunday over the Las Vegas Raiders, an impressive performance that players said was dedicated to running back James White.

White, a third-year captain in his seventh season with the Patriots, remains away from the club after his father, Tyrone, died in a car crash Sept. 20. White’s mother, Lisa, was injured in the crash.

“We just try to go out there and play for him,” said running back Rex Burkhead, who scored three touchdowns for the first time in his eight-year NFL career.cheap nfl nike jersey

“A lot of us, we think about him every single day and his situation. He’s just an unbelievable person, player and leader of this team. So him being away — and of course, the situation him and his family are going through — it’s sad,” Burkhead said. “He’s a brother to me. I really feel his pain in this whole situation. It’s tough.”

Before the game, the Patriots held a moment of silence before the singing of the national anthem.

“We certainly played for James — and not just James but his entire family,” said special-teams captain Matthew Slater, the longest tenured member of the team. “This has been a difficult week for all of us. Obviously, James has been through so much, and most of us can’t even begin to imagine what that must have been like for him and what it continues to be like. We want him to know that we love him and that he has our support.”

Quarterback Cam Newton said players feel for White.8

“We just want to reward him and put him in good spirit,” he said. “We’re excited like heck to hopefully get him back here soon. We’ve been praying for him, and we need ‘Sweet Feet’ back.”

Coach Bill Belichick dedicated part of the opening remarks of his postgame news conference to White, saying that everyone is thinking about him.

Running back Sony Michel, who finished with 117 yards on nine carries, said he texted White throughout the week.

“The rest of the running backs did the same thing, and we all kind of came together and played hard. That’s what James White does,” he said.nike nfl jerseys cheap china

Meanwhile, veteran receiver Julian Edelman said players wanted to make White proud.

“It did give us motivation to go out there and play for him because you know for a fact the kind of guy James White is. If something like that happened to one of us, he would do the same thing,” Edelman said. “It’s been a real tough situation, and my heart, prayers, love and everything goes toward him and his family.”

Southampton’s Ings returns to sink Burnley

Southampton’s in-form striker Danny Ings grabbed an early goal to secure a 1-0 win at his former club Burnley in the Premier League on Saturday.

Ings continued his prolific scoring for the Saints, having now netted 25 of their 54 goals since the start of last season, as he struck in the fifth minute at Turf Moor.nfl cheap jerseys nike

Kyle Walker-Peters played a superb pass through to Che Adams and, with Burnley goalkeeper Nick Pope rushing off his line, the forward squared the ball to Ings who turned it home.8

Injury-ravaged Burnley had an appeal for a penalty rejected when Chris Wood went down after Polish defender Jan Bednarek laid his hands on his back and there was more controversy involving the New Zealand international after the break.

Wood got behind the Saints defence to latch on to a long ball but the assistant flagged for offside with the Burnley striker continuing his run and putting the ball in the net.nfl nike jerseys for cheap

VAR rules instruct officials not to flag or whistle until a move is complete, leading to confusion and frustration on the bench with the Burnley staff believing Wood was onside.

England international Ings had the ball in the net again in the final minutes but that too was disallowed for offside.

Ja Morant, Zion Williamson headline NBA’s All-Rookie First Team

Memphis Grizzlies phenom Ja Morant, the 2020 NBA Rookie of the Year, was a unanimous selection to the NBA’s All-Rookie First Team, as the league announced both of its All-Rookie teams Tuesday night ahead of the start of the Eastern Conference finals.nike jerseys nfl cheap

Morant, who finished with averages of 17.8 points per game and 7.3 assists per game in leading the Grizzlies to the brink of the playoffs after being the No. 2 pick in the 2019 NBA Draft out of Murray State, was the only unanimous selection for the two All-Rookie teams. The teams are comprised of 10 players voted on by a global panel of 100 sports writers and broadcasters, and are selected regardless of position.8

Joining Morant on the first team are Morant’s teammate, forward Brandon Clarke, Miami Heat guard Kendrick Nunn, New Orleans Pelicans forward Zion Williamson and Golden State Warriors forward Eric Paschall.

The All-Rookie Second Team includes Heat guard Tyler Herro; Toronto Raptors guard Terence Davis; Chicago Bulls guard Coby White; Charlotte Hornets forward P.J. Washington; and Washington Wizards forward Rui Hachimura.cheap nike jerseys nfl

Because of the changes to the league’s calendar because of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, there is not a season-ending awards show this year. Instead, the league has reverted back to its old format of handing out awards periodically throughout the playoffs.

Only two honors are left to be handed out: the All-NBA teams and the league’s Most Valuable Player Award.

New York Giants fill need in secondary, add veteran Logan Ryan

The New York Giants have agreed to a one-year contract with cornerback Logan Ryan, a source confirmed to ESPN.

The deal is worth $7.5 million, a source told ESPN’s Dianna Russini.

Ryan will slide into the safety/nickel/corner role the Giants had slated for rookie Xavier McKinney, who fractured his left foot last week.nike cheap nfl jerseys

The news of Ryan’s agreement was first reported by NFL Network.

The Giants had been monitoring Ryan’s situation since the start of free agency. His salary was undoubtedly a factor, with Ryan originally looking for something in the range of $10 million.8

That was too rich for the Giants, who entered Monday more than $24 million under the salary cap, per ESPN’s roster management system. But the Giants waited, and Ryan become a serious option as the secondary became depleted: DeAndre Baker was charged with armed robbery; Sam Beal opted out of the season; and McKinney is out until late November with his injury.nfl cheap nike jerseys

Ryan was a jack-of-all-trades for the Tennessee Titans last season. He became only the third player since 2000 to finish with at least 4 sacks (4.5), 4 interceptions and 4 forced fumbles in a season.

Ryan posted on Instagram in May that his “chapter in Tennessee has come to a close” and later said on Devin and Jason McCourty’s “Double Coverage” podcast that “Tennessee really never offered me a contract … they never really tried to bring me back.”

Ryan played primarily as a nickelback but was used frequently on blitzes and relied upon to be a force against the run. He started all 16 games last season for the first time in his career and set highs with 18 pass breakups and 113 tackles.

In the playoffs, his pick-six of former Patriots teammate Tom Brady sealed the Titans’ upset victory in the wild-card round.

Since entering the league with the Patriots in 2013, Ryan has 494 tackles, 11 sacks, 8 forced fumbles and 17 interceptions, with one defensive score.

Source: Free-agent guard Larry Warford opts out of 2020 season

Three-time Pro-Bowl guard Larry Warford, who has received multiple offers as a free agent since being cut by the New Orleans Saints, is opting out of the 2020 season, a source told ESPN’s Adam Schefter on Tuesday.nfl nike jerseys cheap china

Warford is looking to start a family and will continue to train and revisit playing in 2021, the source said.

The Saints released Warford on May 8, saving more than $7 million in salary-cap space and paving the way for first-round draft pick Cesar Ruiz to earn a starting job.8

Warford, 29, made the Pro Bowl in each of his three seasons with the Saints after they signed him away from the Detroit Lions with a four-year, $34 million contract in 2017.

It became evident New Orleans was considering a change after it re-signed left guard Andrus Peat to a lucrative extension in free agency and selected Ruiz with the 24th overall pick in the NFL draft.

The 6-foot-3, 317-pound Warford began his career as a third-round pick with the Lions out of Kentucky in 2013 and became an immediate starter.nfl cheap nike jerseys

He has started 101 regular-season games, including 44 over the past three years in New Orleans. He also started five playoff games with the Saints.

Packers WR Devin Funchess opts out, cites family’s health

Green Bay Packers receiver Devin Funchess, who had first-hand experience with COVID-19 this offseason while caring for family members with the disease, has opted out of the 2020 season.

The 26-year-old veteran was the only experienced addition the Packers made to their receiving corps, which was viewed as one of the few weaknesses on a team that reached the NFC Championship last season. He signed a one-year, $2.5 million deal that included a $1 million signing bonus after a lost year with the Colts in 2019, when he suffered a broken collarbone in Week 1.nike cheap nfl jerseys

Funchess canceled several scheduled media opportunities shortly after he signed with the Packers because of what sources said at the time was the need to care for family members diagnosed with COVID-19.7

In an Instagram post on Tuesday, Funchess said in part: “My closest family members have experienced the life-threatening impact of COVID-19 first hand and for their own safety and my own safety, I’ve decided to opt out of the upcoming NFL season. This was not a decision I took lightly but it’s what is best for my family and myself at this time.”nike nfl cheap jerseys

Funchess, whose best seasons came with the Carolina Panthers, was in the mix to compete to be the No. 2 or No. 3 receiver behind Pro Bowler Davante Adams. After signing Funchess, the Packers passed on receivers in one of the deepest receiver drafts in history.

Funchess was placed on the reserve/opt-out list, which allows the Packers to retain him under the same contract for the 2021 season. The Packers also placed first-year outside linebacker Greg Roberts on the reserve/COVID-19 list on Tuesday. Packers veteran players reported to Lambeau Field on Tuesday for their first round of COVID-19 testing.

Pirates 3B prospect Ke’Bryan Hayes out indefinitely because of coronavirus

Pittsburgh Pirates third base prospect Ke’Bryan Hayes is out indefinitely while dealing with the novel coronavirus.cheap nfl nike jerseys china

Manager Derek Shelton announced Hayes’ illness on Sunday after the 23-year-old Hayes — the son of former longtime MLB third baseman Charlie Hayes — gave the team clearance to do so.8

The diagnosis blunts the momentum that Hayes, considered the top infield prospect within the organization, built during spring training.

The Pirates expected Hayes, a three-time Gold Glove winner while in the minors, to make his MLB debut this season while splitting time with Colin Moran. But now he must wait in isolation for his clearance to return to the team.cheap nike nfl jerseys wholesale

“Any time we lose development time, it’s challenging for us,” Shelton said. “As we’ve talked about numerous times, not just for (Hayes) but for all of our prospects, this is a big year for us. We have to be very thoughtful of how much work we get them and try to get them as much work as possible. Any time we lose prospect time, it’s challenging.”

Dodgers closer Kenley Jansen says he has recovered after testing positive for COVID-19

Kenley Jansen reported to camp with the rest of his Los Angeles Dodgers teammates on Sunday and revealed that he was delayed because he previously tested positive for COVID-19.

Jansen, the Dodgers’ All-Star closer, said he seemingly acquired the virus from his 4-year-old son, Kaden, who had a fever one night and later tested positive. Jansen initially tested negative, then tested positive in a follow-up exam. He acquired the virus nearly three weeks ago but said he began to feel better by the fourth day.

“I tried to be careful, do everything we could do to try to avoid this virus,” Jansen said on a video call with reporters from Dodger Stadium. “It happened so fast.”nike cheap nfl jerseys

Jansen has previously dealt with atrial fibrillation, a condition that causes the heart to beat out of rhythm, and underwent his second ablation procedure in a span of six years in November of 2018.

After being diagnosed with the coronavirus, Jansen put himself on a restrictive diet, limiting sodium, cutting out dairy, drinking plenty of electrolytes and walking around as often as possible. Two days after being symptom-free, he began to play catch, then started utilizing the gym in his house and ultimately threw off the mound again, his latest bullpen session coming on Friday. Jansen expects to be ready for the season opener in 11 days and didn’t give any consideration to the possibility of opting out.8

“I always wanted to play,” Jansen said. “I love this game. I wanted to do it for the fans. We’re all going through a tough time right now in this world together. I think this is a good thing, not only for Dodger fans but all baseball fans around the world who have something to watch on TV.”

Jansen joins Atlanta Braves first baseman Freddie Freeman, Kansas City Royals catcher Salvador Perez, Texas Rangers outfielder Joey Gallo, New York Yankees second baseman DJ LeMahieu and closer Aroldis Chapman, Milwaukee Brewers shortstop Luis Urias and Arizona Diamondbacks outfielder Kole Calhoun among the more notable players to have publicly revealed they have tested positive for COVID-19.nfl nike jerseys cheap china

Coronavirus cases continue to surge throughout the country as professional baseball, basketball and hockey are on the verge of returning. The U.S. reported 66,627 new cases on Friday, a record for the second time this week. Florida alone had 15,300 on Saturday. In the midst of that, players such as San Francisco Giants catcher Buster Posey, Washington Nationals corner infielder Ryan Zimmerman, Chicago White Sox starter Michael Kopech and Jansen’s teammate, David Price, have decided to opt out of the upcoming 60-game season.

“Take it serious, man,” Jansen said when asked if he had any advice for fans. “Wear your mask at all times.”

Jansen has been in L.A. ever since spring training was canceled around the middle of March. He said everyone who lives in his house, including his wife and two other children, tested positive for the coronavirus after Kaden was diagnosed. They have all recovered, but Jansen said “we’re all still paranoid” over the fear of contracting the virus again.

“It’s definitely scary and definitely a disappointment,” Jansen said. “When my son had it, it was more the disappointment of, ‘Why does my son have it and why not me?’ You just don’t want that to happen to one of your kids. Next thing you know, we all got it. It is scary, man. But at the same time, you have to keep the faith and just fight it.”

Kawhi Leonard expected to join Clippers on Friday night, Doc Rivers says

Doc Rivers said Kawhi Leonard is expected to join the LA Clippers on Friday night in Florida.

“Kawhi is on his way,” the Clippers coach said in a Zoom call with reporters on Friday afternoon before practice. “Should arrive sometime this evening.”cheap nfl jerseys china nike

Leonard did not travel with the Clippers on their team flight on Wednesday, as he was excused by the team to tend to a family matter, according to a source. Rivers also said a few “other guys” whom he did not name are also on their way to Florida after not being able to travel with the team.

The Clippers closed their team facility out of caution after there was a positive coronavirus test among their travel party, ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski reported on July 2. Any player arriving on his own will have to quarantine on campus in Orlando for two days.

The Clippers (44-20) went through their first practice on Friday since the season came to a halt in March due to the coronavirus pandemic. Paul George said the hiatus has only helped strengthen the title contender.8

Several Clippers such as George — who entered the season recovering from surgeries on both of his shoulders — have used the break to heal nagging injuries and give them “what we needed,” George said.cheap nike nfl jerseys free shipping

“Really, I had some insecurities to start the season off,” said George, who is averaging 21 points and 5.7 rebounds in 42 games this season. “I had insecurities throughout the season just because I wasn’t all the way 100 [percent]. Shoulder didn’t feel back to 100. Everything was kind of waiting and hoping, believing in the doctors that everything they were telling me was going to come into this moment now where I feel great, no shoulder issues.

“The whole season, all the way up until maybe a month or two ago, I had to always do shoulder rehab stuff, warming the shoulder up. Just so much went into stuff I had to do before I actually took a foot on the floor. Now I feel great again … feeling back to myself again.”

George did admit that he had some “mixed emotions” initially about whether returning to play would distract from the current Black Lives Matter movement and the protests against police brutality and social injustice around the country. Teammate Lou Williams said in the weeks leading up to the league’s restart that he was “50-50” about playing and potentially taking away from the protests.

“It was a roller coaster of whether we should play or not,” George said. “I think ultimately as young African Americans we have an unbelievable opportunity to use our voices. I don’t necessarily think it’s taking away by starting the league. I don’t think it’s taking away of what’s the important issues in our world. We can still address those more so than we’ve done before with our platforms.”

“… Spotlight is on us,” he added. “We’re opening back up the sports world. With that alone, we should have more than enough of an opportunity to get our message and our points across.”

The deep and experienced Clippers arrived in Florida as a title contender, and Rivers spoke to the players before getting off the bus at their hotel on Wednesday.

“The message is we’re on a mission,” Rivers said of what he told the team on the bus. “And we’ve been deployed. Nothing’s going to distract us. We are not going to complain about anything.

Michael Malone expects Nikola Jokic to join Nuggets ‘very, very soon’

Nikola Jokic is expected to join the Denver Nuggets “very soon” in Orlando, Florida.

Nuggets coach Michael Malone hinted that the team’s All-Star center could arrive at the Walt Disney World Resort as early as Saturday night.

“Nikola Jokic will be in the bubble very, very soon,” Malone said during a video conference call with reporters on Saturday. “I know that is a big topic of discussion, when’s he going to be here. He will be here very, very soon, and excited to see him.”

“No new arrivals today,” Malone later added when asked if any other Nuggets players who aren’t in Orlando have arrived yet. “But the midnight hour has not struck yet, and I’m expecting a big surprise from Europe to arrive fairly shortly.”nike cheap nfl jerseys

A source told ESPN that Jokic did not fly with the team when the Nuggets departed for Orlando on Tuesday due to travel issues. ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski and Brian Windhorst reported on June 23 that Jokic tested positive for the coronavirus while in Serbia and that his arrival to the United States would be delayed. A source said Jokic has since tested negative, something he would have to do twice before leaving Serbia and then twice again in the United States.7

Upon arriving at Disney World, Jokic will have to quarantine for two days before participating in team activities.

“If he doesn’t have [the coronavirus], then that’s good,” Nuggets guard Jamal Murray said when asked what it will be like to have Jokic back with the team. “So I hope he doesn’t have it when he comes here, doesn’t contaminate the bubble. … It will be good to have all of our teammates [back].”

While Malone would not go into specifics, he said the team is waiting to see if other Nuggets in the travel party who did not fly with the team to Orlando will be arriving soon. The Nuggets closed their team facility before departing for Florida after two members of the team’s 35-member traveling party tested positive for the coronavirus, sources told Wojnarowski.

“We are awaiting positive news from back in Denver,” Malone said. “And I can’t wait for us to get whole and be here as a full family.”

Malone has repeatedly said Jokic is healthy and feeling good. The All-Star center turned heads when photos of his new slimmed-down physique went viral recently.cheap nike nfl jerseys free shipping

“So much is being made of Nikola’s weight loss,” Malone said. “I think there was a picture that spread like wildfire while he was home in Serbia. The funny thing for me is long before the league was suspended on March 11, Nikola had lost a ton of weight from the beginning of the season. … To his credit, he just continued to be disciplined and focused with his routine during the suspension and hiatus.”

“Nikola had committed himself to losing that weight,” Malone added. “From the beginning of the season until now, he has lost a considerable amount of weight, probably in the best shape of his life.”
