Patriots put LB Shea McClellin, with undisclosed injury, on IR

The New England Patriots placed linebacker Shea McClellin on injured reserve Monday.

The move was expected after McClellin, who is a key player in certain defensive packages and on special teams, missed most of the preseason with an undisclosed injury.

McClellin, who played in 14 games last season (four starts) for the team, is eligible to be a short-term IR candidate and return later in 2017.

This season we will look to identify good bargains, pick out the high-salary players with the best matchups and consider different strategies depending on whether the contest is a 50/50 or large tournament. In addition to adjusting player scoring for the defensive matchup, we put an emphasis on predicting the game script to help with projecting fantasy potential.

The ninth-ranked defense lost a useful contributor in cornerback A.J. Bouye, but it should be able to replace him with 2015 first-rounder Kevin Johnson. The Texans also get back J.J. Watt after the future Hall of Famer missed virtually all of the 2016 season with a back injury. They might be the favorites to finish with the scoring defense crown in 2017.

If anyone knows this path and the pressure that comes with it, it is Bennett, an Aussie himself and a longtime punter for the San Diego Chargers. Bennett, who retired in 2005, was named to the NFL’s All-Decade team for the 1990s after two All-Pro nods. A former Australian Rules football star, he has become the pied piper of Aussie punters down in San Diego, where his family’s home has become a safe haven for those with big legs and bags packed, thousands of miles from home.

Hit on Odell Beckham Jr. Jersey was legal, but was it clean?

The hit Giants wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. took from Browns defensive back Briean Boddy-Calhoun early in the second quarter of Cleveland’s preseason win Monday night was legal.

That doesn’t mean Beckham, his New York teammates or fellow NFL players have to be OK with such a tackle in an exhibition game.

Truthfully, the NFL could now use a few Chris Longs, so that he’s not the only one, isolated, standing out, even in a fairly benign gesture like his. It’s still early, except this entire discussion is not new — and, thanks to the ongoing nightmarish aftermath of Charlottesville, it won’t go away soon.

Which brings us back to statues — the one of Smith and Carlos at their alma mater of San Jose State University, particularly. It’s a victory stand with them posed on it, but with Norman’s position left vacant. The first reaction is to wonder whether Norman was snubbed.

Bills receiver Rod Streater injured his left foot after making a 12-yard catch early in the fourth quarter of Buffalo’s loss to the Eagles. Streater made a leaping 28-yard catch late in the third and been one of the early preseason stars. The entire Bills team surrounded Streater as he was carted off the field.

Eagles running back Corey Clement scored the first touchdown of Thursday’s game against the Bills. The former Wisconsin running back, who went undrafted in April, had eight carries for 34 yards and caught two passes for another 6 yards against the Bills.

We believe that the NFL has been complicit in the ostracization of Colin Kaepernick Youth Jersey

Top activist organizations, from the Justice League NYC to the NAACP, came together to help facilitate the rally. Prominent speakers at the event did not hold back when calling out the NFL for its lack of support for Kaepernick.

We believe that the NFL has been complicit in the ostracization of Colin Kaepernick, said Symone Sanders, a Democratic strategist and CNN political analyst. And today, it is time for the NFL to take a stand.

Authentic Kids Allen Robinson Jersey Glennon, meanwhile, has only completed 15 of his 26 attempts for 109 yards with one touchdown and two picks. He’s averaging just under 5.0 yards per completion, and has a pedestrian passer rating of 48.4. With Trubisky getting first-team snaps now, Glennon has a reason to be looking over his shoulder.

If Glennon wants to shake that déjà vu feeling and make sure the Bears stick to the original plan of 2017 being his year, then his task is simple: He needs to play his best preseason game Sunday. He needs to sustain long drives, display more accuracy, be turnover-free, lead the offense to more points, have a quicker release, control what he can control and, most importantly, be confident.

DeAndre Jordan Womens Jersey Aside from getting sacked once against the Arizona Cardinals last week and a few bad passes, the 23-year-old Trubisky has done all of those things. Now Glennon must step up his game to justify the $18 million he is guaranteed this season. He needs to take command of the offense and establish himself as a leader of his team.

Jerry Kramer, Robert Brazile named Pro Football Hall of Fame finalists

Elite Womens Chandler Jones Jersey
Jerry Kramer’s time might finally come.

Brazile was the NFL’s Defensive Rookie of the Year in 1975 after the Oilers selected the former Jackson State linebacker with the sixth overall pick of the 1975 NFL Draft. He made the Pro Bowl every year from 1976-82 and was named to the 1970s all-decade team.
Denzel Valentine Authentic Jersey
During a 10-year career, the now-64-year-old Brazile never missed a game and retired with 13 interceptions and 11 sacks over his final three seasons, when sacks became an official stat in 1982.

I don’t know what to say, Brazile told the Houston Chronicle after getting the call from Hall of Fame president David Baker. I’m speechless. I’m so happy, I’m just floating. It’s such an honor, a blessing. I can’t believe it after all these years. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

Kramer and Brazile must now receive at least 80 percent of the vote from the full selection committee, which will meet to vote the weekend before the Super Bowl.

There was more than enough debate during the 2017 NFL offseason about Colin Kaepernick. Should he get a contract? Should he not? Why isn’t that happening? Is it a conspiracy? Why doesn’t anyone want him when teams will take guys with criminal records?

So whether it disappoints you or delights you, we will declare in advance that Kaepernick must resume his career as an NFL quarterback before he can rank among the most hated in that category.
