Eminem has the No. 1 trending video on YouTube after a freestyle released Tuesday night during the 2017 BET Hip Hop Awards.
In the cypher, Eminem uses the entire time to deliever a message against Donald Trump. He even brings in the NFL, the anthem debate and former 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick. The rapper fnished the cypher off with a raised fist, like what many players have done for their protests during the anthem.
The Cowboys owner reportedly wanted his players to see the business side of football, and how protesting during the anthem could affect TV ratings and sponsors.
Jones also said he would speak to players one-on-one if they wanted to talk.
One player said it was good to hear Jones talk because he was concerned Jones had turned on the team. However, another player said Jones still expected them to stand during the anthem.
Elite Womens Adrian Peterson Jersey Jones made headlines Sunday, when he said Cowboys players should stand for the national anthem or they will be benched. However, he clarified Tuesday that players could conduct themselves similarly to how they did in Week 3 before the Cardinals game, when they kneeled before the anthem but stood arm-in-arm when it was played.

Every elite player in the National Football League has to overcome some type of injury once or twice in their career, Miller said. The type of person that Odell is 鈥?I know him personally, so I know that he’s going to come back even stronger and better.
Lions QB Matt Stafford is currently the NFL’s highest-paid player ever with a 5-year, $135 million deal signed in August.

Available in nearly half of ESPN leagues, Ellington is second in the NFL in targets over the past two weeks. With point-per-reception formats in mind, Ellington’s surge in passing usage reveals a new high-floor fantasy role. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have surrendered 57.5 yards to tailbacks this season, seventh most in the league, providing Ellington a nice matchup this week.
Digging deeper at the position, the Colts’ Marlon Mack has proved prolific on limited opportunities so far. It’s difficult to project more than 10 touches for the emergent rookie, but at least this lottery ticket comes with splash play potential for those in desperate need of a deep-league flex candidate. — McCormick
I know what you’re thinking, which is, no, never, not a chance, when it comes to considering McCown as a starting fantasy option. Consider this, though: The New England Patriots are the first team in league history to have allowed at least 300 passing yards in each of the first five games of the season, per Elias. There is real risk in deploying McCown, who has one or fewer touchdowns in three games, but the game script should be pass-happy for New York as substantial home underdogs against a defense that has allowed the most points per drive in the NFL. — McCormick
Elite Mens D’Onta Foreman Jersey Field Yates, NFL Insider: Chargers over Raiders. There are some games that feel just too imbalanced to project an upset — i.e. the Browns over the Texans — so let’s stick with this one, noting a caveat: I believe there is a legitimate shot that Derek Carr plays in Week 6, and I also believe the Chargers can get the job in an upset. Los Angeles’ defensive line is one of the most dominant in the NFL. The Raiders have an established, veteran offensive line but the early season struggles are apparent. They’ve allowed 12 sacks through five games after a league-low 18 last season, and are 23rd in rushing yards per game after finishing sixth in the same category last year. Look for L.A. to make it two straight road wins.
Baltimore Ravens running back Terrance West is doubtful to return to Sunday’s game against the Raiders.
West injured his calf on Baltimore’s opening drive of the game. He got the start over Alex Collins, running hard for 17 yards on his first two carries.
West, the Ravens’ leading rusher, has struggled for most of the season. He had fallen behind Collins on the depth chart the previous two weeks and had been limited to 10 total carries.
Authentic Mens Jordan Crawford Jersey Injuries have hurt the Ravens all season. Baltimore has already placed 16 players on injured reserve.
This was evident with Carr this week when he moved from exercising in the pool on Wednesday to returning to practice on a limited basis on Thursday, even making throws to receivers during the portion of practice open to the media. He was again listed as a limited participant on Friday, and the team has left the door open for Carr to play in Sunday’s game by labeling him questionable. Actually playing in the game seems unlikely, but ESPN.com’s Paul Gutierrez discussed the prospect of Carr dressing for the game as a backup.
It is one thing to make throws and move around untouched in practice. It is quite another to take direct hits — either from a defender or the ground — to an area that is no doubt still very uncomfortable. Two other quarterbacks who suffered this injury — Tony Romo and Cam Newton, in 2014 — missed one game each, but returned two weeks post-injury without incident. The Raiders will not make their decision official until game time.
Ty Montgomery, Green Bay Packers, ribs, (D), 4:25 p.m. ET: Montgomery suffered multiple broken ribs in Week 4, and perhaps the most surprising thing about his progression was his presence at practice so soon afterward. He was listed as a limited participant Wednesday while wearing rib protection and was listed similarly Thursday, not participating in team portions of practice, although he did some individual work indoors.

Washington receivers coach Ike Hilliard, among others, walked past Pryor during the exchange, and Hilliard briefly turned around as Pryor started toward the fan. Another fan shouted to Pryor, “Do something, Terrelle! Do something, baby!”
But Pryor said his initial anger stemmed from a fan calling him the N-word during the Redskins’ 29-20 loss.
Via Instagram Stories, Pryor wrote that he was called this “several times to the point where an NFL employee had to step to me and stand by me the whole game from second quarter on is the exact reason why guys are kneeling during the anthem.”
Pryor, who has only stood during the anthem, said that after hearing someone call him the N-word and then having fans shout obscenities, “me flicking the person off is more deserving.”
Roethlisberger also told 93.7 that he prefers Brown talk to him about missed plays instead of creating a distraction. Asked whether Brown will get the message, Roethlisberger said, “I’m sure.”
“He’s a professional,” said Roethlisberger, who added that the players have moved on from the flare-up. “He’s probably the best wide receiver in the game now, maybe to ever play.”
On Wednesday, he tweeted an apology.
Defensive end Cam Heyward joked it’s not as if Brown acted like former Indiana basketball coach Bob Knight, who once famously threw a chair across the floor in the middle of a game.
Shazier is eager to put together his first full season, and though this injury isn’t believed to be serious, the Steelers will monitor closely. Safety Sean Davis (ankle), guard Ramon Foster (thumb) and defensive end Stephon Tuitt (bicep) all missed practice Wednesday but played last week in Baltimore. The Steelers did not absorb any major negativity injury-wise against the Ravens, coach Mike Tomlin said. — Jeremy Fowler
Foxworth: I know that the Colts do not belong in the AFC South. I believe in the directional integrity of NFL divisions. And it is undeniable that Indiana is not a southern state. Indianapolis isn’t even in the southern part of the state. Oh, and the Texans finally found a franchise quarterback in Deshaun Watson.
Kimes: The Jaguars are a frustratingly inconsistent team with a maddening offense, but their defense is still earning its preseason hype. The pass defense in particular has been special, allowing a league-low 147 yards per game. While second-year cornerback Jalen Ramsey struggled a bit this Sunday, he and free-agent pickup A.J. Bouye have mostly thrived; according to Football Outsiders, Jacksonville allowed a measly 31.7 yards per game to No. 1 receivers through Week 3, giving up just 14.3 yards to No. 2 options.

Sando: It’s a tie between Blake Bortles being inaccurate as a passer, Indy being completely dependent on Andrew Luck, Marcus Mariota being at high risk for injuries and Houston having a formidable pass rush.

Seifert: It’s still the worst division in football. None of these four teams can win a playoff game.
Broncos receiver Bennie Fowler left the team’s game Sunday against the Cowboys after taking a hard hit to his head.
Video of the injury was bad enough, but what happened afterward was worse. Fowler couldn’t even walk straight as he stumbled on his way back to the sideline, collapsing twice before medical staff attended to him on the sideline.
Charles Clay, Buffalo Bills, knee: Clay is expected to appear on the injury report with regularity, as the Bills work to manage the health of his knee. His pattern is limited practice Wednesday, full practice Thursday and Friday and removal from the injury report prior to the weekend.
Evan Engram, New York Giants, concussion: Engram became an addition to several fantasy rosters in the past two weeks, and he delivered a touchdown on Monday night. Although he was placed in the concussion protocol earlier in the week and was held to limited practices each day, as of Friday, he had been cleared to return. Engram is off the injury report and is expected to play Sunday.
This space is intended for a list of key players, not including those who have been moved to injured reserve status, who are officially listed as “Out” for the upcoming game.

Authentic Orlando Scandrick Jersey The Cincinnati Bengals were a disaster on offense in Week 1, but luckily for them, they are expected to get the addition of the fastest player in the history of the draft process Thursday night. Wide receiver and first-round pick John Ross is active and expected to make his NFL debut for the Bengals after missing the team’s loss to the Baltimore Ravens due to a knee sprain.
Ross, 21, probably could’ve contributed and helped the Bengals offense during its 20-0 loss a week ago, but doctors kept him out as a precaution. But after participating in practice fully this week, we’ll get a chance to see his speed in action against the Houston Texans.
But will it be enough to fix the problems that plagued the Bengals in the season opener?
Parker did so much here. The play was phenomenal, but it was also what Parker helped avoid. This could have easily been a Jay Cutler interception. Instead, Parker made Hayward look silly.
Tavecchio is only one game into his NFL career, but the early returns suggest he could fill Janikowski’s role at a lower cost. The 27-year-old rookie is slated to earn $465,000 this fall and would be similarly cheap to re-sign next offseason or extend this winter. Janikowski, on the other hand, had to be talked into reducing his 2017 salary from $4 million to $3 million this fall and will be a free agent in 2018. The Italian emigre would represent a younger and cheaper option than his predecessor, who will be 40 next season.
The former first-round pick is still a proven and dangerous kicker who made nearly 83 percent of his kicks last season, but may find greener pastures elsewhere if Tavecchio can be locked down with a value contract. Of course, the young Italian still has to prove he’s not just a one-game wonder.

Marshawn Lynch scored his first touchdown in nearly two years on Sunday, when he punched in a touchdown from the 3-yard line.
The touchdown gave the Raiders a 21-10 lead, and Lynch’s first touchdown in his hometown.
It was Lynch’s first touchdown since Nov. 15, 2015. That score came in the Seahawks’ ninth game of the season, where Lynch had eight carries for 42 yards and one touchdown.
Prior to Lynch getting into the end zone, he put some punishment on Jets defenders earlier in the drive. It seemed inevitable that he was going to find the end zone.
The season is still young, but we’ve seen some great things out of Lynch early. Hopefully that rest didn’t come with too much rust. So far, it doesn’t seem like it.
The very next week, in the midst of heated quarterback controversy talk, Dak shut down any conversation of pulling him. Against a hot Tampa Bay team, Dak played wonderfully.
Dak became the first rookie quarterback in NFL history to throw for 300 yards and three touchdowns in a playoff game. FINAL STATS: 24/38, 302 yards, three touchdowns, one interception, 7.95 AY/A, 103.5 Rating. Lost 34-31.
Dak has a history of coming back with a strong performance following a less-than-ideal outing the previous game. He has the mental toughness, the work ethic, and the determination to bounce back from any adversity that he hits. He has shown it time and time again.
Steelers outside linebacker T.J. Watt (groin) might be available for Sunday’s game against the Chicago Bears, coach Mike Tomlin said Tuesday, giving credence to Watt’s belief that the injury isn’t serious.
Game Youth Roger Clemens Jersey When Watt got hurt in the second quarter of Sunday’s 26-9 win over the Minnesota Vikings, it was Anthony Chickillo who replaced him, not veteran James Harrison. Tomlin said Chickillo was the hot hand after two sacks in Week 1 against the Cleveland Browns. Harrison did not log a snap Sunday.
Is [Harrison] dropping or are other guys ascending? Tomlin asked in response to a question about whether Harrison was falling on the depth chart.
Tomlin made it clear he believes Harrison, 39, can have an impact on the defense similar to last season, when his late-season relief efforts produced five sacks and bolstered a playoff push.
Jones fractures are fractures of the fifth metatarsal, the long bone on the outside of the forefoot that runs between the pinkie toe and the midfoot. This outer forefoot bone is subjected to significant torsional stress in an athlete during pivoting, pushing off, sharp deceleration and twisting. It is also subject to impact stress with repeated running and jumping, making it an easy injury target for a pass-catching tight end.
If this is indeed a Jones fracture for Olsen, the challenge in trying to heal is that the bone here does not have a particularly good blood supply, which results in a frequent failure to heal independently, even with immobilization. For this reason, surgical fixation of Jones fractures (with implantation of a screw) has become the standard of care, especially in elite athletes, who will return to high-stress activities and whose specific movements in their sport put them at an otherwise increased risk of failure.

NFL MVP: Aaron Rodgers, QB, Packers: If Rodgers and the Packers live up to expectations, the Green Bay quarterback could claim his third NFL MVP award. After winning in 2011 and ’14, Rodgers could join former Packers quarterback Brett Favre as a three-time league MVP.

After a Super Bowl loss of their own the year before, the Panthers looked like a shadow of that team last year. However, Cam Newton has a new arsenal of offensive weapons surrounding him, and the defense is still solid. This team should rebound.
While the Saints and Bucs both made noticeable improvements to their weakest positions, they will head into the season as underdogs to make the playoffs. Drew Brees is now 38 years old, and Jameis Winston still has his doubters. But it wouldn’t be all that surprising if these two teams ultimately on top of the division at the end of the season.
Possibly the beginning of the last season in Washington for Kirk Cousins, for still largely-unfathomable reasons. Leapfrogging Washington out of the NFC East basement would be an accomplishment, but so would beating them, period: The Eagles have lost to them five straight times. If Carson Wentz makes the leap plenty around the team believe he will this year, that streak will end, and so will their time in last place. Eagles, 28-23
Everybody’s sleeper from last season travels east to open against everybody’s sleeper for this season. One of the many things the Raiders should feel good about is that, last season, they went on the road for three of their first four, and won all three, including at Tennessee. Marcus Mariota and Derek Carr have both recovered beautifully from gruesome late injuries last year. The deal-breaker: defense. Uh-oh. Titans, 20-17
