Eagles head coach Doug Pederson confirmed on Monday that middle linebacker Jordan Hicks broke a
bone in his hand while on his honeymoon earlier this summer, an injury that required a "minor
procedure." Hicks will be limited to start training camp.

understands his role,"He's a veteran player, I'm not going to rush him out there and try to
" said Pederson,reinjure that thing, who stated that he doesn't expect his linebacker to miss any
time.

Hicks' injury reportedly occurred while getting out of a pool during his honeymoon in Greece in
late June.

Hicks missed half of his rookie season in 2015 with a torn pectoral muscle. He also dealt with
including a torn Achilles,significant injuries at the University of Texas, a hip flexor and a
fractured foot.

while manning the middle for defensive coordinator Jim Schwartz. His five interceptions led the
team and were the most among NFL linebackers. He now has seven picks in 24 professional games.

Pederson added that wide receiver Jordan Matthews could be limited in the early stages of training
camp as well as he continues to deal with knee tendinitis.

I know the type of person and player that he is,Womens Latavius Murray Jersey,"I'm not concerned. I know Jordan's work ethic,
obviously,and we've just got to stay on top of it," Pederson said. "He's been rehabbing all
spring, all summer ... just another one that we'll monitor as we go."

August. He was hobbled by various injuries throughout the season,Authentic Latavius Murray Jersey, including a sprained ankle that
he suffered in late November. He was also sidelined for much of the spring. Nelson Agholor received
the bulk of his reps in the slot and really stood out.
July 24 (UPI) -- Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane recently made a 50-yard field goal look way too easy while kicking at the New York Giants' practice facility.

Kane posted a video Monday from Quest Diagnostics Training Center in East Rutherford,Womens Markus Wheatont Jersey, N.J. The social media post was captioned: "50 yard field goal. How far if I had my boots on!? Great day with @nygiants @thehumble_21 doing some drills! #nfl #fieldgoal #SpursInUSA,Womens Connor Shaw Jersey,"

which is sitting on a tee,In the short video, Kane approaches the football,Womens Kendall Wright Jersey, before ripping it with his right foot.

"Beautiful," he says. Kane completed the kick in gym shoes.

He also posed for photos with Giants safety Landon Collins.

"Got some kool lessons from @harrykane on scoring some field goals #thegoldenboot," Collins wrote on social media.

Tottenham is on a preseason tour of the United States. The Spurs defeated Paris Saint-Germain 4-2 Saturday at Camping World Stadium in Orlando. Kane scored a goal off of a penalty kick in the 88th minute of the victory. He now has four goals in three appearances this year for England and Tottenham. He scored 37 goals in 43 games last season for club and country.

OXNARD,Womens Justin Tucker Jersey, CALIF.

Jaylon Smith hasn’t even stepped on the field,Womens Jim Kelly Jersey, but there is already a buzz about him at training camp.

Thank Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones for that.

Jones didn’t tap the brakes in his praise of Smith during the ‘State of the Cowboys’ news conference on Sunday afternoon.

2016.,Jones went as far as saying the organization had Smith rated as the top prospect in the 2016 draft – the same draft that produced Ezekiel Elliott and Dak Prescott – before he sustained a severe knee injury during Notre Dame’s bowl game Jan. 1

The Cowboys used their second-round pick to take Smith.

“He was at the top of the board and would have been at the top of the board this year,” Jones said. “The caveat is what we all wonder. Can he play like he had the career playing at that particular time? So that’s what we’re here to see. To me, he’s just like looking at a No. 1 draft pick out here coming out on the field for the first time.

“We all know his circumstances and what he needs to overcome. It looks really good, all testing, all feeling,Womens Tevin Coleman Jersey, really looks as good as I could have hoped that it would look at the time. We’ll see.”

Smith,Womens Joe Flaccos Jersey,Womens Eric Weddle Jersey, 22, is working diligently to return from the knee injury when he tore the anterior cruciate and medial collateral ligaments in his left knee, and had damage to the peroneal nerve.

Smith has been wearing a brace on his ankle and foot and is expected to continue doing so in camp. But he’ll be monitored early on.

The Cowboys will likely have Smith working every other day as they take a cautious approach in him getting acclimated again.

“We’re going to look after his best interests,” executive vice president Stephen Jones said. “He’s ready. He’s dying to go every play, right now. He also knows that we want to do what’s best for Jaylon. We all know being in shape and being ready is a lot different than playing football.

but we’re going to take the safe route every step of the way. I think everybody’s going to be pleasantly surprised with how well he does.”,“I think he could do it

The defensive line has been a strength for the Cincinnati Bengals the last six years or so. There have been seasons
that weren’t as productive, but overall the Bengals’ defensive line has been one of the most consistent spots on
the defense as a whole.

Last season was a bit disappointing, but the blame shouldn’t land on the defensive line as both left end Carlos
Dunlap and defensive tackle Geno Atkins played well. Right end Michael Johnson was solid, but didn’t make too much

it’s going to look a bit different. The Bengals added defensive ends Jordan Willis and Carl Lawson,This year, as
well as defensive tackle Ryan Glasgow in the draft. That should add to Andrew Billings,Womens Tevin Coleman Jersey, who is essentially getting
his rookie campaign this season after injuries kept him from the field last year.

Lawson is the one that has folks the most excited,Womens Joe Flaccos Jersey, following a pretty impressive showing during OTAs and minicamp.
While Willis on the other hand looks to be the prototypical defensive end Cincinnati likes to go out and get. He’s
lanky and has excellent athletic abilities,tall,Womens Justin Tucker Jersey, similar to both Dunlap and Johnson.

teams like to rely on when things get heavy. If he can keep his motor running throughout training camp,Authentic Jim Kelly Jersey, his spot on
Billings isn’t a rookie,the 53-man roster should be secure. Lastly, but is still a new face as he was injured in
2016. His ability in stuffing the run and taking on double teams will allow the others around him to make more of an
impact.

Adding all of these new faces to the existing defensive line should bode well, at least it seems that way on paper.
With Dunlap and Atkins both considered elite players at their position, the Bengals really only need a few supporting
members to round out the starting defensive line. If Billings can give the team a ferocious nose tackle in the

believe they can make a small impact in a rotational role. Lawson will be the X-factor here, since we don’t know
exactly how the team will end up using his talents. Regardless of how they plan on using him, I still believe Lawson
can make the biggest impact his rookie season out of the three rookie defensive linemen.

I expect the Bengals to be a little better than last season. They’re younger,With all that said, faster and meaner.

players,Womens Eric Weddle Jersey,Womens Jim Kelly Jersey, they’ll improve the team across the board.

Last season they ended up with 29 sacks which was okay, but for a team that depends mostly on their defensive line to
get to the quarterback, it wasn’t enough. If Lawson and Willis can account for about eight to ten sacks between the
two of them, that alone will be better than what Clarke and Gilberry produced in 2016. As long as Billings can live
double-team-demolishing phenom,up to his billing as a run stuffing, there’s just no way I see the group getting
worse in their run defense.

Overall, I think the defensive line can account for 30 sacks in 2017 and be just a little better against the run.
That won’t be a massive improvement over last year, but does show the promise the young blood has to continually get
better. This new injection of youth and athleticism should take the defensive line far in 2017 and beyond.

The Top 25 Under 25 is a collaboration by members of the RawCharge writing staff. Four writers, we’ll count down each of the 25 players ranked,authentic Taylor Hall jersey, plus a special guest,adidas Travis Hamonic jersey, ranked players under the age of 25 as of September 1,adidas John Tavares jersey, 2017 in the Tampa Bay Lightning organization. Each participant used their own metric of current ability and production against future projection to rank each player. Now,adidas Ryan McDonagh jersey, plus Honorable Mentions.

Jake Dotchin was drafted by the Tampa Bay Lightning during the 2012 Entry Draft. He went in the 6th round, 161st overall. The Canadian defenseman is 23 years old and will be playing for the Tampa Bay Lightning this fall.

Dotchin’s accelerated development was one of the better results that came about thanks to the Lightning’s injury bug last season. Recalled to the Lightning from Syracuse for the first time on January 21st, Dotchin was only expected to be with Tampa for a short time. However, his grit and skill impressed so much that he ended up playing with the Lightning for the remainder of their regular season. He eventually worked his way up to the first pairing alongside Victor Hedman.

Dotchin registered his first NHL point, Dotchin has played in 179 career AHL contests since 2014 (including playoffs), an assist, on January 31st. He played a total of 35 games in the NHL last season. Before he was recalled to the Lightning, Dotchin had been an anchor on the Crunch’s blue line, and was returned to Syracuse for the Calder Cup playoffs. In all,adida Taylor Hall jersey,adidas Cory Schneider jersey, recording 11 goals and 50 points. His totals include six power-play goals.

Dotchin is now well-known around the NHL for his spirited,authentic Cory Schneider jersey,authentic Travis Hamonic jersey, physical game. He had some discipline issues while with the Lightning,authentic John Tavares jersey, and was suspended for three games during the AHL playoffs for a questionable hit on Frederik Gauthier. Keeping his emotions under control going forward should be a goal of his.

Dotchin’s ranking by our contributors is interesting. I’ve had the privilege of watching him develop in Syracuse. The experiences and situations I’ve seen him go through influenced my higher ranking. However,authentic Ryan McDonagh jersey, including Geo and Tom, his usage with the Lightning was mostly next to one of the most talented defensemen in the NHL. Many, are conservative in their projections because of the unknown: How will he perform in other situations with other players?

Dotchin’s current contract, and most feel he would not make it through without being picked up. Because of that, signed this summer, is for two years. It is a one-way contract for both years with an AAV of $812,500. The signing of defenseman Dan Girardi might complicate Dotchin’s role with the Lightning this upcoming season. However, Dotchin is now waiver-eligible, his chances of being sent down are probably slim-to-none.
Wolfe was dominant at times during OTAs, but it's how he develops as a leader which could determine his progress in 2017.

Derek Wolfe knows he is at the point in his career where he has to be more than just a disruptive, havoc-wreaking defensive end.

if he stays healthy this season,Of course, he could be in position for his best year in that regard. His performance during OTAs was dominant; he consistently breached the pocket and knocked down passes at the line of scrimmage on an almost-daily basis.

But the reason why you should focus your binoculars on Wolfe doesn't revolve around what he does after the ball is snapped. It's what he does in the huddle and on the sideline.

The defense -- and the team at large -- needs leadership to emerge in the wake of the retirements of Peyton Manning and DeMarcus Ware during the last 16 months. In his sixth season and the second year of a four-year contract that he signed in January 2016, Wolfe knows it's time for him to help fill that role.

“I’ve been around enough great players that I’ve seen how not to do it and how to do it,Womens DeVante Parker Jersey," Wolfe said in May.

Last year,Authentic Laquon Treadwell Jersey, Wolfe felt he did more of the former than the latter.

" he said. "When I saw things,Womens Mackensie Alexander Jersey,“I didn’t speak up enough, I didn’t speak up and I didn’t say things when I should have. I’m not letting that[stuff] slide this year.”

He's already shown signs of that on the practice field -- with some assistance from newcomer Domata Peko.

giving his best.",“Derek is the type of guy that will let you know if you’re doing some stuff wrong and get after you that type of way, he’s one of the hardest workers out here. He’s here every day," Peko said during OTAs. "But also,Authentic DeVante Parker Jersey,Authentic Jordan Phillip Jersey, giving his all

Together,Womens Jordan Phillip Jersey,Womens Laquon Treadwell Jersey, Wolfe and Peko should be able to provide the leadership the defensive line needs.

Sometimes finding parking around the United Center in Chicago can be a real hassle. Apparently so much so that city employees were blocking off a local street on game days in order to free up parking for their friends and family members.

” according to inspector general Joseph Ferguson (via DNAInfo).,adida Taylor Hall jersey,The City of Chicago recently punished 13 employees “for their role in a scheme that blocked off a street near the United Center so their friends and relatives could park for free during Bulls and Blackhawks games

The plot was discovered by city inspectors who staked out NHL and NBA games,adidas Cory Schneider jersey, including nine Blackhawks postseason contests,authentic Travis Hamonic jersey, at the arena from April 2015 to February 2016. They witnessed Office of Emergency Management employees “allowing 62 cars to park for free on the west side of Wood Street between Madison Street and Warren Boulevard.”

Parking at the United Center usually means using one of the official parking lots that charge a fee. There’s also some limited street parking available, although most of it requires a permit or otherwise is not free.

That’s a challenge for locals trying to attend already-expensive games at the United Center given the lack of public transportation that goes directly to the arena. Currently, nearly a mile from the building.,authentic Taylor Hall jersey,authentic Cory Schneider jersey, the closest “L” station to the United Center is at Ashland

So a lot of people attending Blackhawks and Bulls games drive themselves,adidas Travis Hamonic jersey,adidas John Tavares jersey, and that means parking is a regular headache.

City employees,authentic John Tavares jersey, according to Ferguson’s quarterly report,adidas Ryan McDonagh jersey, breaking a city rule that prohibits “supervisors from directing other city employees to perform services for unauthorized purposes or accepting the benefits of such performance and giving preferential treatment in the course of employment to any person.",authentic Ryan McDonagh jersey, would use plastic cones and other barriers to redirect the public to other streets

Looks like their friends will have to get in line and pay $25 like the rest of us.
A young team dying to get back to the Super Bowl – emboldened by a late run that led the franchise to the doorstep of Super Bowl LI – has Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers feeling optimistic about his team’s chances in 2017.

“We have a young and hungry team, and I like our chances,Authentic Sean Davis Jersey,” Rodgers said, in an interview with Alex Flanagan of NFL Network.

Rodgers believes the late successes in 2016 – which included six straight wins to finish the regular season and a pair of wins in the playoffs – and the disappointment of falling just short can help everyone in Green Bay gear up for another run and another shot at getting back to the Super Bowl.

” Rodgers said. “We realize how close we got last year. I think everybody was hungry in that locker room after the game. Obviously a lot of disappointment about the way we played and performed,“It’s exciting, disappointment about the culmination of the season, we’re thinking about the Super Bowl, but I think it gives you the excitement to come back and try and do it again.”, being so sudden. It’s here, it’s over. Tough to not be there

losing in the game’s first ever overtime contest.,The Packers beat the pesky New York Giants and the top-seeded Dallas Cowboys in the postseason before bowing out to the high-powered Atlanta Falcons in the NFC title game. Atlanta went on to blow a big lead in the Super Bowl to Tom Brady and the New England Patriots

only five players remain from the team that won Super Bowl XLV in February of 2011.,Green Bay’s NFC title game loss – the team’s second in three years – kept the Packers out of the Super Bowl for the sixth straight year. Now

Rodgers can sense there’s a hunger for something more than just another playoff appearance in Green Bay.

“Look at our team, not a lot of guys left from the 2010-2011 run that made the Super Bowl,Authentic Wendell Smallwood Jersey,” Rodgers said. “A lot of guys that don’t know what it’s like to win that,Authentic Artie Burns Jersey,Authentic Javon Hargrave Jersey, going to the playoffs eight straight years. But we’ve haven’t got back to the Super Bowl. We’d like to.”,Authentic Bud Dupree Jersey, to be a part of it, to enjoy that success. Now we’ve had some success

How can the Packers get back to the season’s biggest game? Rodgers has one solution: Start fast and set up future playoff games at Lambeau Field.

“We gotta get those home playoff games again, that makes it really tough on other teams.”,” Rodgers said. “If it’s coming through Green Bay in the playoffs

Both of Green Bay’s most recent NFC title game losses were away from Lambeau Field: In Seattle in January of 2015, Rodgers has never played in a conference title game at home., and in Atlanta this past January. In fact

the Packers play the Seahawks and Falcons in back-to-back weeks to begin the 2017 season – could change that. It’s also possible playing the NFC title game at Lambeau Field would give Rodgers and the Packers the edge they need to finally get back to the Super Bowl.,A fast start – keep in mind

even if Rodgers believes he’s just “starting” the “back nine” of his career.,The opportunities for a return aren’t unlimited

and hopefully win a couple more championships,“I like to get another seven, or eight,” Rodgers said.,Womens Wendell Smallwood Jersey,Womens Artie Burns Jersey,Womens Sean Davis Jersey,Womens Javon Hargrave Jersey,Womens Bud Dupree Jersey, or nine or 10 (years in Green Bay)

The optimism of every new season is unmistakeable. Rodgers’ quest for a second title begins soon.
New Buffalo Sabres head coach Phil Housley hired Chris Hajt to serve as one of his assistants, the team announced Monday.

The team also made the playoffs in each of the last two seasons as the Ontario Reign,authentic Jaromir Jagr jersey,Hajt,authentic Drew Doughty jersey, spent the last three seasons as an assistant coach for the Los Angeles Kings' American Hockey League affiliate. When the Kings' AHL affiliate was the Manchester Monarchs,adidas Dustin Brown jersey, 39,adidas Jonathan Quick jersey, including a division title in 2015-16.

Saskatchewan, native is the son of former NHL defenseman Bill Hajt,The Saskatoon, who was Housley's teammate in Buffalo in the 1980s. Housley was named the 18th head coach in Sabres history on June 15.

"It's been a process with that because we're trying to do a thorough search for really good candidates and there's a lot of really good coaches out there," Housley told the Buffalo News last week of his coaching search. "But you wanna just make sure you do the right thing and look at everybody. We still have the coach that we're looking at and trying to fill that position."

Seattle Seahawks star Richard Sherman said NFL players must be willing to go on strike if they want similar salaries seen in the NBA and MLB.

from Sammy Watkins to Emmanuel Sanders,Womens DeVante Parker Jersey,Many players,Womens Jordan Phillip Jersey, have voiced their displeasure about their NFL salaries compared to basketballers and baseballers.

With NBA free agency in its first month,Authentic Mackensie Alexander Jersey, several six-figure contracts have made headlines. There is one thing both NBA and MLB players have in common – they have gone on strike in past seasons.

as the NFL,Authentic Trae Waynes Jersey, players have to be willing to strike. That's the thing that guys need to 100 per cent realise, as a union,"If we want, to get anything done," Super Bowl champion and four-time Pro-Bowler Sherman said at the ESPYs on Wednesday.

you're going to have to lose some money if you're willing to make the point, they flexed every bit of power they had, because that's how MLB and NBA got it done. They missed games,"You're going to have to miss games,Authentic DeVante Parker Jersey,Authentic Jordan Phillip Jersey,Authentic Laquon Treadwell Jersey, they struck,Womens Laquon Treadwell Jersey,Womens Mackensie Alexander Jersey,Womens Trae Waynes Jersey, and it was awesome. It worked out for them."

An NBA player lockout in 2011 shortened the season from 82 games to 66, but the players did win a larger share of revenue and the salary cap and luxury tax were both restructured.

The last MLB player strike affected both the 1994 and 1995 seasons, and resulted in the cancelation of the 1994 World Series.

but it only lasted from March to July,The NFL had its own lockout in 2011, so it did not directly affect the regular season.

NFL players did strike in 1982, resulting in a nine-game season.

Another aspect Sherman said NFL players need to look at is how their contract is structured.

Instead of mammoth five or six-year deals, NBA players take on shorter contracts for a max payday.

" Sherman said. "They figure, 'I'll take a two-year deal because I'm going to wait for the salary cap to increase and get another bite at the apple.' In our sport,"NBA players like KD[Kevin Durant] and LeBron[James] are sitting there taking two-year deals like it's nothing, they won't do it."
One of the biggest mysteries heading into the 2017 season is how the Packers will distribute touches in the backfield. We know Ty Montgomery is a full-time running back, but we don't think he's a "workhorse". We also know the team added a trio of running backs in the draft,Authentic Jaquiski Tartt Jersey,Womens Eli Harold Jersey, with Jamaal Williams seemingly being the perfect complement to Montgomery's style.

but whether last year's 374 carries were an outlier or a trend will determine the value of the running backs as much as anything. ,What may matter as much is how much the Packers run the ball. We'll get into that more below

What we don't have to worry about is the passing game, so let's start with ranking their Fantasy assets.,Authentic Arik Armstead Jersey,Womens Jaquiski Tartt Jersey,Authentic Tyler Lockett Jersey,Womens Tyler Lockett Jersey,Authentic Germain Ifedi Jersey,Womens Germain Ifedi Jersey,Authentic Eli Harold Jersey,Womens Arik Armstead Jersey, at least not with Aaron Rodgers and Jordy Nelson. But we've never see Davante Adams and Randall Cobb be good in the same season. We've also never seen them with a tight end as talented as Martellus Bennett. There's plenty to figure out in Green Bay

*Rankings expressed below are in terms of expected Fantasy points. This is a part of our actual Fantasy Football rankings but not a direct correlation to my rankings. Things like injury risk, etc. factor into rankings but they're not being talked about here. This is simply an expectation as the team is currently constructed.
Dalvin Cook could very well wind up being the future of the Minnesota Vikings offense and the early reviews are that he could bring something to the table that the team has not had before.

Vikings Update's Tim Yotter broke down what the Florida State running back and 2017 second round pick brings to the table for the team.

he had defenders on their heels.,Womens Jalen Reeves-Maybin Jersey,Cook has rare speed – for the purpose of comparison, but more times than not, his skill set is along the line of Jamaal Charles or Chris Johnson. The Vikings have never had that type of running back. Peterson had breakaway speed,Authentic Jarrad Davis Jersey, his long runs were the result of eight or nine players being in the box and when he hit full speed through a hole

but he brings an element to the offense that has been absent in the offenses the Vikings have run. The other negative to consider is that he fumbled too often at Florida State.,Authentic Teez Tabor Jersey,Cook has the ability to go from zero to 60 in an instant and can take a play that looks like there is nothing available and burst into high gear quicker than most running backs. Depending on how quickly he picks up the offense (and picks up blitzers),Authentic Brad Kaaya Jersey, Cook can take any touch to the house. As with most speed backs, while Murray is a dependable north-south runner, he could push for more playing time than (Latavius) Murray because, durability has to be a legitimate question because he opens himself up to high-speed collisions

ASHBURN — Preseason buzz last year focused upon whether the Redskins’ wide receivers were the best such unit in the NFL. With DeSean Jackson and Pierre Garcon leading the way,Authentic Lorenzo Mauldin Jersey, they certainly merited consideration.

Both players have departed for big-money deals elsewhere,Authentic Bryce Petty Jersey, but Washington’s wide receivers coach,Womens Karl Joseph Jersey, former NFL receiver Ike Hilliard,Authentic Jihad Ward Jersey, is no less excited about the group he will bring to training camp this year.

The buzz has been growing around new addition Terrelle Pryor since he arrived in Washington, but Hilliard sees big things further down the depth chart as well. Most notably, he’s bullish on Ryan Grant in the receiver’s fourth season, his final one with a rookie contract.

“I’m a Ryan Grant fan,” Hilliard said after the team’s minicamp in June. “He’s always been our best pure route runner out of every guy we’ve had, even with Pierre and D-Jax here. He’s been a consummate pro. He says nothing and works all the time.

“He’s gotten a bad rap for some situations that weren’t all completely his fault, and the world will never know that. We’ve always kept that in house.”

Grant has served as a punching bag for fans after missing key catches in limited game action. He was the targeted receiver on an overtime interception in Atlanta during the 2015 season, but the pass from quarterback Kirk Cousins was errant.

He said earlier this offseason he’s worked to put on weight and improve his route running as he approaches a potentially increased role.

“We’ve won games with him as a starter,” Hilliard said of skepticism about Grant. “He didn’t have a lot of targets,Womens Lorenzo Mauldin Jersey,Womens Bryce Petty Jersey, but he did do his job pretty well when he was out there.”

The receivers coach is equally enthusiastic about welcoming Jamison Crowder back for a third campaign.

Crowder,Womens Jihad Ward Jersey,Authentic Karl Joseph Jersey,Authentic Shilique Calhoun Jersey, who was described by his position coach as the team’s best blocker (“because he’ll stick his face in there”),Womens Shilique Calhoun Jersey, will likely see the bulk of his action from the slot receiver position, though Hilliard said he wants to make sure all of his receivers can play from any position.

Part of that could be chalked up to lingering uncertainty about Josh Doctson, last year’s first-round draft pick who missed most of the season with an Achilles injury.

Hilliard said he’s been consistently impressed by Doctson’s talent and work ethic, and he’s hopeful fans get to see that this year on the field.

There were also words of praise for Pryor, who transitioned from quarterback to wide receiver last year with the Browns. Was Hilliard surprised by Pryor’s success?

“I think everybody in the world was surprised,” Hilliard said. “It’s not an easy transition to make when you take former quarterbacks and put them in the situation of getting hit more and being exposed to different things. In terms of the physical aspect of the game, he plays the game aggressively, and he’s made the transition well.”

Now Pryor and the Redskins receivers will seek to duplicate the success of their predecessors, this time while flying under the radar in the preseason.
