Steelers’ Martavis Bryant resumes working with starters in practice

Martavis Bryant is working his way back to the starting roster.

The Steelers wide receiver resumed practice with Pittsburgh’s first-team offense on Monday following the Week 9 bye, though it remains to be seen if he’ll be in the same position Sunday when the team visits the Colts.

Still, Bryant is confident about his availability going forward.

“The scout team was for me to work on my craft when I wasn’t playing,” Bryant said. “It was nothing permanent. People took it the wrong way. бн We’ve got a long season to go, still. I have to finish, work hard and make the best of all situations and go from there.”

The Steelers (6-2) are scheduled to visit the Colts (3-6) at 1 p.m. ET Sunday.

Miller was released from the New Orleans hospital on Nov. 6 and transported back to Chicago. He has provided updates throughout his rehabilitation and thanked those who offered support. He also recognized fans for a standing ovation he received when the Bears hosted the Packers at Soldier Field in Week 10.

Marvin Jones Jr. caught 4 of 7 targets for 85 yards and one touchdown against a Bears defense that has been good against the pass this season. Believe it or not, Jones now trails teammate Golden Tate by only nine fantasy points on the season, though Jones has played 145 more snaps. In fact, Jones has been on the field for 401 of the Lions’ 405 pass plays this season, which has helped allow him to handle 21 percent of the team’s targets.

Jones sits 16th among wide receivers in fantasy points (Tate is 12th) and his 5.8 OTD ranks 13th in the NFL. Jones should be locked into lineups most weeks but is certainly a risky play against Minnesota on Thursday. Jones has posted targets-receptions-yards-touchdowns lines of 5-2-42-0, 11-4-54-0 and 5-1-5-0 in three games against the Vikings while with the Lions. Same as in Week 4, expect Xavier Rhodes to shadow Jones this week.

Kevin Durant taking ankle injury ‘day by day,’ unsure about Thunder game

Authentic Kids Trumaine Johnson Jersey
Golden State Warriors forward Kevin Durant, who sat out Sunday night’s 118-111 win over the Brooklyn Nets with a left ankle sprain, told ESPN’s Chris Haynes that he’s “not sure” whether he’ll be able to play Wednesday at Oklahoma City.

Stefon Diggs was limited to four catches for 32 yards and no touchdowns on six targets against the Rams in Week 11. Diggs has now failed to eclipse six targets in a game since Week 4 and has one touchdown during his past five games. Diggs averaged 8.0 targets per game and was fantasy’s No. 1-scoring wide receiver (by 10 points) Womens Olivier Vernon Jersey during Weeks 1-4 but is averaging 5.3 per game and sits 36th during the past four weeks he has been active. Diggs is a good bet to draw shadow coverage from Darius Slay this week, and though he had success in the Week 4 meeting between the teams (98 yards), he should be downgraded to WR3 territory in this matchup. Adam Thielen is the Vikings’ top slot man and will thus dodge Slay’s coverage most of the time.

Lee’s greatest success was with the Golden State Warriors from 2010 to 2015, when he averaged 16.7 points and 9.6 rebounds. He was named to the 2013 All-Star Game, becoming the Warriors’ first All-Star since Latrell Sprewell in 1997. By 2014-15, he was a highly paid role player on a Warriors championship team that featured stars Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson.

He was then traded to the Boston Celtics in the offseason. After being waived, he had stints in Dallas and San Antonio.

Lee recently announced his engagement to tennis star Caroline Wozniacki.

That’s true in the States because Fulham has a history of signing prominent American players锟斤拷Clint Dempsey, Carlos Bocanegra, Brian McBride, among others. It’s to the point that some call the club Fulhamerica. And then there’s their profile, Khan says. They have the most educated, highest income English football fans.

Khan bought Fulham in 2013 for an estimated $300 million, and installed his son, Tony, as director of football operations in February of this year.

Oklahoma at Oklahoma State (Saturday): Back in the summer, we all circled Bedlam as a possible playoff-predictive contest. Heck, even the Big 12 acknowledged as much when it moved Bedlam out of the game’s traditional end-of-season time slot and moved it up an entire month. Now, thanks to TCU’s unforeseen Iowa State loss, this game, while never unimportant, is back on the national radar.

James’s overhauled cast features a long list of notable newcomers鈥擨saiah Thomas, Jae Crowder, Dwyane Wade, Derrick Rose and Jeff Green鈥攖hat will likely spend most of the season gelling. Bottom line: Don’t assume that the 2018 Finals would mirror the 2017 Finals just because it features the same two franchises.

Last season, the Pups ranked 28th during the final four minutes of one-possession games with a net rating of minus-24.9. But this season’s older, wiser, clutchier Wolves are getting it done in crunch time.

The letter to Elliott announcing his suspension also noted that a lack of cooperation from Elliott wasn’t a factor. If Elliott had failed to cooperate, his suspension might have been longer.

Williams is a legendary trickster. Teodosic is a passing savant. Beverley has snazzier ball-handling chops than he showed spotting up around James Harden.

The top 15 scariest goalie masks of all time

Halloween is upon us, which means the empty store in the strip mall that used to be a Kmart or whatever is now filled with a spook-tacular variety of masks. Ones that are whimsical. Ones that are topical. But most of all, ones that will scare the jeepers out of you.

Yet all of the games James has played in between those bookends allow him to process the loss with plenty of perspective.

“What is this? October? I’m not about to go crazy over it right now,” he said. “It’s too long of a season, and I’ve been a part of this too many times, so I’m the wrong guy to ask. I’m too positive right now.

“All it takes is a win. That’s all it takes. All it takes is a win, and then things will start feeling better, and we’ll start feeling better about ourselves. So we just need a win.”

The Cavs came into the night ranked sixth in offensive efficiency at 107.3 points per 100 possessions. Last season, they were third in that category, scoring 110.9 points per 100 possessions. One of the bright offensive spots for Cleveland was Dwyane Wade, who scored 15 points on 7-for-12 shooting with four assists in 23 minutes off the bench. It was his second straight double-digit scoring night after he accepted a role with the second unit.

Anyway, that’s all a way of saying that although everyone might expect another Kershaw masterpiece, don’t be surprised if Keuchel throws one.

The matchup that matters most: Kershaw vs. Houston’s big three of George Springer, Jose Altuve and Carlos Correa. This is the heart of what a great World Series game should be about: The best in the game battling the best in the game. In Game 1 against Kershaw, Springer went 0-for-3 with three strikeouts, all on sliders. Altuve went 1-for-3 with a ground-ball single to left field. Correa also went 0-for-3. Kershaw went seven innings in that game and allowed just three hits and no walks while striking out 11.nike_patriots-011

Goff is an incredible turnaround story. I truly appreciate it, because I had little regard for him at the end of his 0-7 rookie season, and the distance the Rams have traveled is great. But my MVP through seven weeks is Carson Wentz. More accurate, more yards, more touchdowns (17 to 8), better yards per attempt, better rating (by 13.7), more wins.

(Capitals netminder Braden Holtby was particularly impressed by the third, a rebound elevated from inside the blue paint: So quick. Ninety-nine percent of the time, someone buries that into my pad.) Concerning what comes next for Matthews, Clark has a theory. You don’t learn the personality of players Year One, he says. You learn the skill level, how good they are as hockey players. Years two, three, four, you start learning the person.

The most educational moments from his rookie season came during its lowest points锟斤拷which, it should be noted, remain higher than they are for most rookies. When Matthews went goalless for 13 games between Oct. 27 and Nov. 22, it was the longest scoring drought of his life. His mind flashed to some advice he overheard Oilers winger Patrick Maroon give a teammate at the 2016 world championships. You’re living the dream, Matthews told himself. It sucks going through slumps like that, but you’ve got to have fun and enjoy Gale Sayers Jersey it.

New England went back and forth on the idea of trading Butler during the offseason.

As a graduate assistant at Kent State under Don James, Saban also drove a Coca-Cola truck on the side to help make ends meet. Navigating the hilly landscape in the Akron, Ohio, area was hard on Saban and even harder on the truck’s clutch. I’d burn up a clutch every summer, Saban recalled.

Over the next 10 seconds, he stickhandled through the legs of two Senators skaters; nudged the puck along the left wall toward Karlsson; shrugged off pressure from behind; surprised the two-time Norris Trophy winner with a swift stick-lift; regained possession; and beat goalie Craig Anderson from below the face-off circle. Going to have to give him that one, Karlsson says. I didn’t think he was going to get around like that.

New No. 1 Georgia takes on hot South Carolina

The national spotlight isn’t something the Georgia Bulldogs have had to deal a lot with over the past 10 years or so.

Jed Lowrie Mens Jersey Times are changing.

The Bulldogs (8-0, 5-0 SEC) head into Saturday’s game against South Carolina (6-2, 4-2) smack-dab in the discussion for the national title, rarified air the program is catching a whiff of for the very first time in the playoff era.

Georgia, which entered the week ranked second in both major polls, is now No. 1. Kirby Smart’s team holds the top spot in the initial College Football Playoff rankings, released Tuesday night.
Game Marshal Yanda Jersey
The Bulldogs were followed by Alabama, Notre Dame and Clemson 4. The goal is the national championship game, set for Jan. 8 at Mercedes Benz Stadium in Atlanta.

We’re worried about South Carolina right now, Smart said. That’s all I’m thinking about.

He likely will return to a defensive role Wednesday — after playing an offensive one against Dallas — as rookie Brock Boeser returns to the lineup. Boeser, the club’s top scorer with nine points in 10 games, is due back after sitting out the Monday contest with a sore foot that resulted from a blocked shot against the Washington Capitals.

It’s clear that Vancouver’s Authentic Jose Cruz Jr. Jersey internal competition is heating up, particularly in goal. Coach Travis Green has a tough decision to make after Jacob Markstrom stood out Monday, despite the loss, and might have earned another start. That could result in Swedish compatriot Anders Nilsson, who has two shutouts this season, spending more time on the bench.

It’s a super-healthy competition, both in practice and off the ice in the gym, even though he’s got about 30 pounds on me, Markstrom said.

Here is how each notable trade made before Tuesday’s deadline is reflected in the game.

Saquon Barkley, Penn State, RB: Don Brown’s Michigan D led the nation in total defense entering Week 8, but the Nittany Lions torched them for 42 points as Barkley ran for 108 yards on just 15 carries to go with 53 yards receiving, finding the end zone three times on the night. How’s this for versatility: Barkley now has five catches that have gone for 40 yards or longer. Two of the other RBs on this list—Love and Taylor—have combined for five catches all season. Barkley can open his lead in this race even further if he can help Penn State to a win over a very talented—and angry—Ohio State team in Columbus.

The Tigers backed up a thrilling comeback win over Houston two weeks ago with a 56-26 rout of Tulane last week. Quarterback Riley Ferguson threw three touchdowns, and Memphis rushed for 259 yards and four scores in what Norvell called a complete performance.

This year, however, a number of impact moves were made, and “Madden NFL 18” offers an opportunity to assess what they mean for the players and their respective new teams going forward.

With a big need at wide receiver and in position to contend for a playoff berth, the Bills made a deal right at the deadline for Kelvin Benjamin from the Panthers.

Benjamin is a fantastic video game receiver (outside of a relatively slow 86 Speed rating) given his 6-5 height and ratings near the top of the league in categories such as Spectacular Catch, Catch in Traffic, Jumping and Release. He becomes the No. 1 receiver for Buffalo with a rating of 85 Overall.

The Panthers now join the Redskins and Browns as the only teams without a single receiver rated 80 Overall or better.patriots_117

Gruden said there’s a trickle-down effect on special teams.

I’m really leaving the whole evolution of his jump shot — when he wants to shoot it, when he feels comfortable shooting it — with him, Brown said. When he feels the confidence to shoot things and people sag off of him, he’s going to shoot it. If he doesn’t, so be it, he’ll go find another way to impact the game. It’s coming.

Simmons, the 2016 first-overall pick, is shooting 51 percent through his first seven games but has struggled at times outside of the paint and has missed all four 3-point attempts.

What has forced the Patriots’ hand is of course the continued excellence displayed by Brady who, at the age of 40, is providing legitimacy to his own bullish talk of him playing well into his forties with a string of excellent performances, already putting the team on his back on numerous occasions as New England’s defense has wilted.

Either way, I’m betting a Crystal Gayle t-shirt got ruined.
