Houston Texans running back Arian Foster was officially placed on injured reserve on Tuesday.

“It’s the little brother that, big brother wants to go out and play with his friends and the little brother is annoying, [saying], ‘Hey, can I go?’ ” Marshall said. “No, you can’t go Detroit Lions. Sit back. Sit in your little city. Fix your financial problems and all of that, you know. You can’t come with us right now. But right now, they’ve got the best of us. They beat us twice. They swept us. But what matters is when we see them in the playoffs. It’ll be a great show. It’s gonna be tough. But I guarantee it’s not gonna go down like it did the first two games.”

I have a three-part response for Marshall. No. 1: Scoreboard. Saying all of this after being swept by the Lions simply comes off as sour grapes. It’s true that losing to the Lions twice in one season doesn’t happen too often for the Bears, but this year it’s pretty clear which is the better team. The two games between the Lions and Bears reflect that, as do the current NFC North standings.

No. 2: You must be lacking creativity if the best you’ve got is a cheap shot at Detroit’s financial situation. We’ve heard it all before, so I will respond with an uncreative, recycled comment of my own: How can Detroit be bankrupt when it owns the Chicago Bears?

Houston Texans running back Arian Foster was officially placed on injured reserve on Tuesday. Foster has been dealing with a back and hamstring injuries all season. He missed his first action of the season this past week, and has been ineffective off and on in the games he did play. The Texans will turn to backup Ben Tate, who has been productive in relief thus far.

Jacksonville Jaguars linebacker LaRoy Reynolds has been suspended four games for violating the league’s policy on performance-enhancing drugs. Reynolds was signed as an undrafted free agent and made the 53-man roster with an impressive training camp. He’s appeared in nine games and has played primarily on special teams, but he’ll be shut down for four games.

Jake Locker injury: Titans QB hurts foot against Jaguars

Tennessee Titans quarterback Jake Locker suffered a right foot injury in Sunday’s game against the Jacksonville Jaguars and has been listed as questionable to return.
Miles Plumlee Game Jersey
Locker has returned to the sideline on crutches and will not re-enter the game.
Jack Eichel Game Jersey
Green-Ellis has run for 460 yards this season and is on pace for 736 yards. This would be his lowest total since arriving in Cincinnati, and some of his opportunities are being given to rookie Giovani Bernard. Green-Ellis offered somewhat encouraging news on his injury status, saying “I think I’m feeling better.”

Despite the broken thumb, Green-Ellis remains one of the league’s most sure-handed running backs. He has fumbled four times in his career, carrying the ball a total of 928 times. It’s likely that his role will continue to be diminished as he likely becomes a short-yardage back, ceding the lion’s share of carries to Bernard.

With Andy Dalton being inconsistent under center, a healthy offense is the key to Cincinnati getting back on track and pushing for a playoff spot.

The 49ers currently lead the Panthers, 9-0, but losing Davis hurts the offense in a game that appears to be a mostly defensive affair. He caught one pass for 2 yards, but was the key to many of the team’s offensive principles against a Panthers team that has shown an inability to cover tight ends in 2017. A week ago, Carolina allowed 81 yards and a touchdown to Falcons tight end Tony Gonzalez.

Mavs confused with J.J. Barea’s ejection after Blake Griffin push

The Dallas Mavericks were dumbfounded by guard J.J. Barea being called for a flagrant foul 2 and ejected after pushing Blake Griffin during Thursday’s 97-95 win over the LA Clippers.

Dallas coach Rick Carlisle implied that Griffin, a 6-foot-10, 251-pound power forward, flopped after exchanging shoves with the diminutive Barea, who was trying to fight through a Griffin screen with 5:29 remaining in the third quarter.

After Rick Carlisle decided to give him the start at point guard, Seth Curry responded with a 23-point, four-assist effort in a win over the Clippers.
Watching Griffin’s cat-ate-the-canary smile tells you the story of that play, Carlisle said. That’s all you have to look at.

Mavs star Dirk Nowitzki called Barea’s ejection just weak and complained about the confusion regarding what constitutes a flagrant foul.

It’s tough to tell these days in this league what’s a flagrant 1, what’s a tech, Nowitzki said. I’m lost, and I think so are the refs.

J.J. Barea was ejected after pushing Clippers big-man Blake Griffin, leaving the Mavericks confused over why the scuffle constituted a flagrant foul against the diminutive point guard.

After a lengthy review, the referees ruled that Barea’s shove with his right forearm was excessive and unnecessary, prompting an ejection that left the Mavs’ reserve point guard laughing as he exited the court.

Youth Doug Gilmour Jersey The contact was to the shoulders and above the throat, crew chief Bill Spooner said to a pool reporter. That is deemed as a flagrant penalty 2.

Spooner declined to say whether he believed Griffin flopped on the play.

That is not really relevant to our judgment of the play, Spooner said. It has nothing to do with the merits of the play.

Glazer noted that the same person may have taken Super Bowl 50 MVP Von Miller is helmet following Denver is win.

Peppers worked out with the linebackers and the defensive backs at the combine. NFL rules dictated that he had to participate with the linebackers, but his agents worked it out so he could compete with the defensive backs as well. Peppers sees himself playing safety at the next level, and Mayock believes he is at the top of this draft class after the combine. Peppers was previously ranked No. 3 in Mayock is safety group.

No changes to Mayock is rankings at this position, but it is worth noting that after reviewing his tape, our Stephen White believes Ramczyk may be a bit overrated as a left tackle prospect. White thinks Ramczyk might be better served by a switch to right tackle in the NFL.

Glazer noted that the same person may have taken Super Bowl 50 MVP Von Miller is helmet following Denver is win. A Broncos helmet was found in his possession, and the team believes it is the one Miller wore during his MVP performance in Denver is Super Bowl 50 win. The helmet is currently considered evidence, but it will be returned to the Broncos, according to Cameron Wolfe of the Denver Post.

The NFL confirmed Jay Glazer is report that league security, working in tandem with the FBI and other law enforcement agencies, had recovered Brady is missing jerseys. The jerseys were found in the possession of a person who had posed as a member of the international media, according to the league is statement.

Morris Claiborne signing with the Jets leaves big questions for the Cowboys’ secondary

Former sixth overall pick Morris Claiborne signed a one-year, prove-it deal last offseason. Betting on himself ended up paying dividends for the former Cowboys cornerback, as Claiborne turned a solid year into a lucrative deal with the New York Jets.

ESPN’s Adam Schefter broke the news on Twitter Thursday.On Saturday, the team confirmed it had signed Claiborne.

When these two teams met on March 11 in first-round play in Miami, Team USA held a 5-0 lead late but saw the Dominican Republic storm back for a 7-5 victory.

On Saturday, Kansas City Royals starter Danny Duffy overcame those two first-inning runs — just one earned run — to last through four innings without further damage, striking out one.

After Stanton’s home run, that 4-2 Team USA lead held until the seventh inning, when Robinson Cano hit a solo home run to pull the Dominican Republic within a run. That home run would have tied the game were it not for Adam Jones robbing his Baltimore Orioles teammate Manny Machado of a home run just one batter earlier.

The U.S. tacked padded their lead in the eighth on a two-run double by Andrew McCutchen, and the lead held, giving Team USA their first semifinal berth in the World Baseball Classic since 2009.

In the other semfinal matchup, Pool F winner Puerto Rico will battle Pool E runner-up Netherlands on Monday night. The WBC championship game is on Wednesday night, also at Dodger Stadium.20

March Madness bracket update: Rhode Island beats Creighton. You should have picked them

The Rhode Island Rams are still dancing after beating the Creighton Bluejays, 84-72, in the first round. The Rams are a No. 11 seed, but they didn¡¯t look anything like one, controlling most of the game against the Jays. It¡¯s their first NCAA tourney win since 1998, and alum Lamar Odom was even on hand to watch it.

The second round features two pools in Tokyo and San Diego, the latter at Petco Park. The second round is also a round robin format, with the top two teams from each pool advancing.

The final four teams will battle in the semifinals and finals at Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles, with the championship game scheduled for Wednesday, March 22.

This is the fourth WBC, with the Dominican Republic hoping for a repeat of its undefeated championship run in 2013. Japan won the first two World Baseball Classics, in 2006 and 2009.

Game Womens Todd Frazier Jersey The Pirates didn¡¯t learn their lesson in the first half, and Kingsley reminded Seton Hall the paint belongs to him with an emphatic block on a Rodriguez poster dunk attempt in the second half.

Cowboys defensive end DeMarcus Ware missed practice for the second straight day on Thursday, according to ESPN’s Calvin Watkins. Ware missed a game for the first time in his career in the Cowboys’ Week 7 win over the Eagles due to a quad injury. His status is uncertain for Week 8.
Game Womens Thomas Morstead Jersey
Things broke bad in the last two seasons, though. NC State finished a hair under .500 both last year and this year. The team¡¯s offense went from really good to only pretty good, and the defense progressively fell off a cliff over the two seasons. This year¡¯s team ranked 226th in the country in adjusted defensive efficiency, which is a remarkably horrible spot for a team from the ACC.

Panthers trade Kony Ealy to Patriots to move up a round in 2017 NFL Draft

Kony Ealy is joining the New England Patriots after he was traded by the Carolina Panthers along with a third-round pick in exchange for New England’s second-round selection, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

Ealy, 25, was a second-round pick by the Panthers in 2014 and has 14 career sacks in three seasons. He looked primed to break out as a star in the Carolina defense during the team’s postseason run in 2015, posting three sacks and an interception in the team’s Super Bowl 50 loss.

On Friday, the Wilsons tried again by sharing a new angle of that infamous family photo, this time with an artfully gray color palette and jeans for Ciara’s kid.

For Ciara and her son, it’s still a lovely image. And then we get to Russell Wilson, and he’s still in a strange position. Why isn’t he showing his head? What’s his head doing behind Ciara? Is he resting it on the small of her back, or … never mind. Like, I kind of get that he’s trying to be artful here; the image of his hands palming her baby belly gives off a loving and protective parent vibe. Still, it’d be nice to see Russ’ head in the photo, so it’d make this Human Centipede-esque aesthetic feel less discomfiting.

Actually, wait — we can fix this again.

Seconds before the final buzzer had even sounded in Miami, Nowitzki is running off the floor. His 10 fourth-quarter points had made sure Dallas was crowned 2011 champion, but before the trophy is presented, Nowitzki needs a moment. He isn’t going to let the world see him cry.

A Mavericks public relations official follows him into the locker room. We have to go, he tells Nowitzki, knowing the television cameras could only wait so long. You have to receive the Finals MVP trophy, he continued.4
