                                      WINSTON-SALEM, N. Andy Etchebarren Jersey .C. -- The plan is simple for Army: trust the run-heavy offense, keep leaning on the opponent and pounce once the defenses legs get a little wobbly.It worked well enough Saturday to bring the Black Knights within a win of bowl eligibility for the first time in six years.Ahmad Bradshaw scored on an 11-yard keeper with 11:45 left to help Army beat Wake Forest 21-13 as part of a dominant fourth-quarter effort. Darnell Woolfolk added a TD run of his own with 2:54 left for what amounted to a clinching score.The Black Knights (5-3) entered with the nations No. 2 rushing offense (357.6 yards), but had managed just 42 yards in the first half and 131 through three quarters. Yet when the fourth began, Armys runners were soon bulling their way through a fading defensive front and dragging tacklers for first downs.Thats exactly what Coach (Jeff) Monken and (offensive coordinator Brent Davis) harp on, Woolfolk said. They say that we execute our game plan, things will open up. Maybe not right away, but if we keep doing our brand of football things will open up. And thats exactly what happened.Army ran for 107 yards in that final quarter with its wear-you-down, clock-melting style.I didnt expect we were going to fold. I thought we would fight, Monken said. And thats what Im most proud of: they just came out in the second half and fought really, really hard.Army is having its best season since winning seven games and earning the programs last bowl invitation in 2010.Wake Forest was trying to become bowl eligible for the first time since 2011. But John Wolford got the Demon Deacons off to a bad start with two interceptions on overthrown balls on the first three possessions, and Wake Forests offense sputtered as Army made its fourth-quarter move.They were better prepared, they out-executed us, they out-toughed us, they played smarter than us, Demon Deacons coach Dave Clawson said. They beat us, they flat-out beat us. If wed have won that game, we wouldnt have deserved it.THE TAKEAWAYARMY: The Black Knights have proven theyre the type of team content to lean on opponents with the run -- again and again -- to wear them down and slowly assert control. This game was a reminder of how well that formula can work, even on a day when the big rushing totals arent there.Weve just got to believe at all times, Bradshaw said. Definitely we cant flinch.WAKE FOREST: Despite its moments of growth in Clawsons third season, Wake Forest is still prone to offensive struggles and lacks some big-play punch, occasionally turning drives into work-for-everything fights.Offensively we had made improvement through the middle of the season, Clawson said, Were starting to regress a little bit. Were not making plays.THE BOWL GOALClawson deflected questions earlier this week about his team trying to become bowl eligible, saying it would only get there if it accomplished its goal of going 1-0 each week enough times.While Monken borrowed that line after Saturdays win, Bradshaw said its definitely on our minds while Woolfolk pointed out that the teams preseason goals included winning -- not just reaching -- a bowl.Obviously it feels good that were right there knocking on the door to become bowl eligible, Woolfolk said, and thats exactly what we want to do.QB PLAYWolfords third interception with 9:25 left proved to be a killer, with Army answering with a 12-play drive that took 6 1/2 minutes off the clock and ended with Woolfolks TD run. He completed 23 of 43 passes (53 percent) for 220 yards and one TD.Fellow quarterback Kendall Hinton missed his fifth straight game with a knee injury.UP NEXTARMY: The Black Knights can become bowl eligible by beating Air Force next week. Air Force has won three straight meetings by at least 14 points.WAKE FOREST: The Demon Deacons host Virginia in the first meeting between the teams since Wake Forests 16-10 road win in 2012.---Follow Aaron Beard on Twitter at http://www.twitter.com/aaronbeardap---More AP college football: http://collegefootball.ap.org Mike Mussina Jersey .

DETROIT -- The Detroit Red Wings want to improve their play at home and theres no better time to start than Friday, when they begin a five-game homestand -- their longest of the season -- by facing the Columbus Blue Jackets at Joe Louis Arena at 7:30 p.m.Detroit (13-11-3) is 2-6-2 on home ice after beginning the season 4-0 at JLA. The Red Wings tallied only 19 goals in their past 10 home games.I wouldnt say theres big things missing, coach Jeff Blashill told mlive.com. Obviously, that record says that there is, but really to me theres just minimal, little things. We found a way to win a couple games on the road when they were tight, we found a way to lose a couple games at home when they were tight. We seem to be in a tight game every night.Detroit won its last two games on the road, 4-3 in overtime over the New York Islanders on Sunday and 4-3 in a shootout over the Winnipeg Jets on Tuesday.Columbus is one of the NHLs biggest surprises this season with a 15-5-4 record and won four in row.Blue Jackets coach John Tortorella says improved discipline has been a big reason for his teams improvement.It has been a real change for our team, our discipline, not sitting in the box, Tortorella told the Columbus Dispatch. Thats been a huge improvement from last year as far as how many offensive-zone penalties we took. We were sloppy. Thats concentration on the night of the game, being disciplined with your detail.Columbus is third in the NNHL in both goals per game (3. Tanner Scott Jersey. 17) and goals-against per game (2.17). They rank first on the power play (24.6 percent).A key addition for the Blue Jackets is rookie defenseman Zach Werenski, who owns six goals and 17 points to lead rookie defensemen in that department.They added a guy on defense (Werenski) who was great in the American League playoffs, now you got another impact player, Blashill said. Its a team that we could see coming from a long way away, they were going to be a real good team this year.That said, there arent big differences between teams. It still comes down to little things and they found a way to be better than anybody else on the power play, theyre structurally sound. (Tortorella) is a really good coach and hes got them playing good hockey.Werenski is from the Detroit suburb of Grosse Pointe, played at the University of Michigan and is a good friend and former Michigan teammate of Detroits Dylan Larkin.The Red Wings will get two players back from injury for the game. Forward Andreas Athanasiou, who missed 12 games with a sprained knee, is expected to return and goaltender Jimmy Howard will be back. He has been activated from the injury list after missing about a week and a half with a groin injury.There is no word on whether Howard or Petr Mrazek will start in net. ' ' '

With the first unit struggling of late and Amir Johnson - one of the teams iron men - hobbling on an injured right ankle, Patterson knew he could get the nod in a challenging matchup against one of the leagues up and coming players at his position. HOMESTEAD, Fla. -- Nearly five years after an intense battle on the racetrack for the Sprint Cup championship, Carl Edwards found himself in the middle of a different kind of firestorm.The afternoon show on Boston sports talk radio station WEEI was broadcasting live from New Hampshire Motor Speedway. A day earlier, the hosts of the show started plugging their trip to the racetrack. The hosts, including a former major league baseball player and former NFL player, debated whether NASCAR drivers are athletes.They had some harsh words, with former NFL tight end Christian Fauria saying Carl Edwards is not an athlete.Right off the bat with Edwards on the air, the hosts came clean about what they said the day before about Edwards, who got to hear some of the comments. Fauria, one of the hosts, also said a day earlier that Joe Gibbs was the worst football coach he ever played for in his 13-year NFL career. Fauria and the other hosts laughed about that comment as well in welcoming Edwards to the show.Edwards, nearly on cue, smoothly joined the brofest: My god ... and this is the best Boston has?And then he rationalized with them: No. 1, you dont have to be an athlete to drive a race car. ... I might argue that guys in both of your sports are probably not the best athletes. Edwards explained that he believes his fitness level helps him on the hot, taxing days -- that it allows him to relax and focus instead of feeling worn out.Its hand-eye coordination, you have to be somewhat brave. There are a lot of risks, Edwards said. You have to be pretty technical. ... Its a semantic thing.Heres the deal: You want to get in my car and give it a shot? Its a skill set. Lets say Im the best athlete in the world, the decathlete gold medalist, I cant go line up in an NFL game and do it.Afterward, as he walked back to his hauler to get ready for qualifying, Edwards said he enjoyed the segment.It was great, Edwards said. At the end of the day, its cool for those guys to come to the track. Theyre not race savvy and ... to be able to talk to a new crowd and have those guys ask those questions and talk like that and bust right through the door, I think thats cool.In other words, Edwards appreciated the opportunity to promote his sport and perform at his best in a public setting.Now four months later, he gets to do that on the track. Just like that radio show, he appreciates the opportunity he has to add a Sprint Cup trophy to his mantel and participate in what could be an epic finish to the season.Hes had championship opportunities in the past, ones that ended in epic disappointment. He finished tied for second in points behind Tony Stewart in 2005. He was second behind Jimmie Johnson in 2008. And then in 2011, he finished tied with Stewart, losing the title on a tiebreaker as Stewart had five wins in the Chase. The final Stewart victory came with Edwards on his tail at Homestead-Miami Speedway.Edwards is one of the four drivers with an even shot at the title Sunday at Homestead. Whoever finishes best among Edwards, Kyle Busch, Jimmie Johnson and Joey Logano will be crowned the champion.Its an opportunity to go do that again, to go be a part of that weekend with everything on the line -- thats as good as it gets, Edwards said. When that race was over in 2011, I wanted to line it up again and do it again. Obviously I wanted the outcome to be different.I really enjoyed that competition, leading up to it, the whole week, qualifying, it was great.The 37-year-old Edwards ranks fifth among drivers with the most wins (28) who have not won a title. He is one of threee drivers who have finished second multiple times in the standings without winning a championship. David Wells Jersey. .That could feel demoralizing, but its not too shabby for a driver who once passed out business cards looking for a ride before he got his start on a part-time basis in a truck in 2002.He can remember those days and what they taught him. Hes no Busch, who drove for Roush Fenway Racing at age 16. Hes no Johnson, who had some backing from Chevrolet to break into NASCAR and then joined Hendrick Motorsports at a time when it was one of the top teams in the sport. Hes no Logano, who signed a major NASCAR deal before he turned 18.Edwards crew chief, Dave Rogers, also knows what its like to struggle. His initial Cup crew chief job, with Jason Leffler in 2005, ended in 12 races, and he wound up in the Xfinity Series before working his way back atop a pit box in Cup.We have two things in common, Edwards said about him and Rogers. We have experience. We understand how to do the job.Because of everything weve done, were really grateful for the opportunity. We really value this chance to go win a championship. Thats cool. Its pure racing.Rogers, crew chief for Denny Hamlin last year and for Kyle Busch from late in the 2009 season through 2014, has never had a chance to win a title at Homestead.Weve both been in situations where weve come up short, and we know what its like to lose, Rogers said. Now we want to go down there and try to figure out how to win it. ... I know Carl was disappointed last year that he fell short.The 11 [team of Hamlin] was disappointed last year that we fell short. But now were teamed up together, our first year together, were going down there with the option to win it, and were just excited about it.If Edwards learned any lessons from his past championship runs, especially from 2011, hes not detailing them.I learned a lot [in 2011], he said. Not going into specifics about my mindset, Im really grateful for that experience. Yeah, I wanted to win just as bad as I want to win every year. But that experience -- I wouldnt trade it for anything else.Edwards wouldnt, however, say that he had to lose a championship in order to win one.You dont have to, he said. We happened to. One way to look at it is in 2005, we had a chance and I was like, Oh we will win it next year. In 2008, I was like, That one hurt a little bit.In 2011, I was like, I want to go again right now. [It means] I will be really appreciative of the championship. It will mean a lot to me because of those battles.Edwards and Johnson are the two drivers among the four who have not competed in the elimination-style Chase championship event. In each of the last two years, Edwards has been knocked out in the semifinal round.He has the best average finish of any of the finalists at Homestead as he tries to join an elite group of drivers -- Busch, Kevin Harvick, Brad Keselowski and Bobby Labonte -- who have won titles in both the Cup and the Xfinity Series.Really, this whole thing for me is simple: We have a shot to win the championship and weve got the team to do it, Edwards said. Im excited for the opportunity. The last two years ... you go to Homestead and youre like, Damn it, I know if we just were in that group we could have a shot at this.So now we get the chance. Thats as good as it gets. Its like passing out those business cards saying, Somebody just let me drive the car, please. Now we get to be a part of it. Its cool. ' ' ' 
SANTA CLARA, Calif. Cheap Houston Texans Jerseys . -- The Santa Clara police chief vowed Saturday to continue providing a safe environment at San Francisco home games after the union representing his officers threatened to boycott policing the stadium if the 49ers dont discipline Colin Kaepernick for criticizing police and refusing to stand during the national anthem.Chief Michael Sellers said in a statement that he will urge union leadership to put citizens safety first.Kaepernicks blanket statements disparaging the law enforcement profession are hurtful and do not help bring the country together, Sellers said. As distasteful as his actions are, these actions are protected by the Constitution. Police officers are here to protect the rights of every person, even if we disagree with their position.In a letter sent to the 49ers, the police union complaining that Kaepernicks inappropriate behavior has threatened our harmonious working relationship.The board of directors of the Santa Clara Police Officers Association has a duty to protect its members and work to make all of their working environments free of harassing behavior, the letter reads.It was the latest in the flurry of heated responses -- both negative and positive -- that Kaepernick has gotten since his silent protest became the talk of the NFL and much of the nation last week.The quarterback wouldnt stand for the anthem at the teams preseason games, most recently kneeling alongside teammate Eric Reid in San Diego on Thursday night.He has cited racial injustice and police brutality among the many reasons for his protest and said he plans to continue into the regular season.Kaepernick is expected to discuss his actions on Sunday at a San Francisco church known for its activism on civil rights causes.We had a long conversation, the Rev. Amos Brown of Third Baptist Church told the San Francisco Chronicle. He stated his serious opposition to racial oppression and violence in this country, and hes willing to stay true to his conviction. Hes interested in taking this to the next level.The team reiterated Friday night that it stands behind Kaepernick and respects his right not to participate in celebrating the national anthem.About 70 officers from the Santa Clara Police Department patrol Levis Stadium when the 49ers play there.The 49ers will open their season at home against the Los Angeles Rams on Sept. 12.

ATLANTA -- It felt just like the first time for Lucas Harrell -- from his first pitch, to the catcher behind the plate. Jack McCloskey Jersey Signed .Making his first major league start in more than two years, Harrell allowed one run in six innings and the Atlanta Braves beat Jose Fernandez and the Miami Marlins 9-1 on Saturday.Harrell (1-0) was recalled from Triple-A Gwinnett for the start.Freddie Freeman hit a two-run homer in the first inning and Jace Peterson hit a three-run homer in Atlantas seven-run sixth that knocked Fernandez (10-4) out of the game.Harrell made his first start since April 15, 2014 with Houston against Kansas City. He made his major league debut with the White Sox in 2010 -- when current Braves catcher A.J. Pierzynski was behind the plate.Throwing to Pierzynski added to Harrells sense of comfort.Its just one of those things where if youve done it before youre not going to be overly excited, Harrell said.It has been a long road to get back here. I felt like Ive worked real hard. Ive been up and had a little success before. It was just nice because A.J. was with me in Chicago and he knew my stuff and we were on the same page all game.Braves interim manager Brian Snitker said Harrell will remain in the rotation for at least one more start.Harrell, 31, allowed one run on three hits with one walk. His start was especially important one day after the Braves exhausted their bullpen in a 7-5 loss to the Marlins that lasted 12 innings.Today was huge, Snitker said. Lucas was really good. ... We needed that for the bullpen.Marlins manager Don Mattingly said Harrell carved us up pretty good, honestly. We didnt do much with him.Fernandez gave up a career-high nine runs, six earned, on eight hits and one walk in 5 2/3 innings.The six earned runs allowed matched Fernandezs career high.Rough day, man, Fernandez said. I just have to put it behind me.Fernandez drove in the decisive runs as a pinch-hitter in Miamis win Friday night.The Marlins, who began the day third in the NL wild-card standings, fell to 3-8 against the last-place Braves.The four-game series will conclude on Sunday at Fort Bragg, North Carolina, in a salute-the-troops game at the military installation.Peterson doubled to left field in the first, moved to third on a wild pitch and scored on Freemans 14th homer, a high shot caught by a fan on the front row of the center-field seats.Braves rookie left-hander Dario Alvarez gave up singles to Chris Johnson and Jeff Mathis in the ninth before hitting Dietrich with a pitch to load the bases. Alvarez struck out pinch-hitter Giancarlo Stanton and Ichiro Suzuki to end the game.11 TO GOSuzukis triple to center field in the third inning drove in Derek Dietrich, who had a leadoff single, for Miamis only run. Suzuki, 42, has 2,989 hits in the majors -- 11 from reaching 3,000.LUCKY 13Petersons first-inning double gave him a career-best 13-game hitting streak. He is the only Braves player to have a streak as long as 10 games this season.TRAINERS ROOMBraves: OF Ender Inciarte was held out with what he says is a minor right groin strain. He left Friday nights game in the sixth inning with the injury. He said Saturday he hopes to play on Sunday.UP NEXTMarlins: LHP Adam Conley (4-5, 3.90 ERA) will look for his second win of the season against the Braves on Sunday at Fort Bragg. He threw eight scoreless innings in a 3-0 win on June 22 in Miami.Braves: RHP Matt Wisler (3-7, 4.14) has a 7.11 ERA in two career games, including one start, against the Marlins.

Jerry Grote Jersey Signed. Smiths status is still up in the air, but a healthy Wilson could prove useful for the Buckeyes.Even after missing the matchup with the Spartans, Wilson still ranks third on the team with 26 catches for 343 yards and five touchdowns, and he also has chipped in 78 yards and another score as a rusher.

FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. Mike Haynes Jersey . -- Northern Arizona coach Jack Murphy had every reason to believe his team would take a big leap in the 2015-16 season.The Lumberjacks returned four players he considered starters from a team that made it to the championship game of the CollegeInsiders.com tournament and had talented newcomers who could contribute right away.Things fell apart quickly.Two of Northern Arizonas best players went down with season-ending injuries by the 10th game and the Lumberjacks never recovered, finishing 5-25 with a roster that included eight freshmen on scholarship and 11 overall.We literally had one practice last year with our full complement of guys, Murphy said. We were youth personified.There is an upshot to that trial-by-fire season: All those young players come back with far more experience than they would have had without the injuries.Theyll join senior forward Jordyn Martin, the 2014-15 Big Sky defensive player of the year, who played only three games last season because of a foot injury. Senior guard Jaleni Neely returns after being limited to nine games because of knee injury.Both are healthy and expected to be the leaders Murphy envisioned a year ago.Bruising senior forward Ako Kaluna also is back after having a breakout season with Martin out, giving the Lumberjacks some experience to go with all those young players.I feel like we have a chance to do something special this season, Neely said. Those guys got experience not too many freshman get and I think it will help them as far as maturity and seeing how the Division I level is. It also gave them a lot of confidence.A few more things to look for from the 2016-17 Lumberjacks:THE SCHEDULE: Northern Arizona had one of the hardest opening schedules in the country last season, playing Washington State, Boise State and Gonzaga all in one five-day road trip. The Lumberjacks lost all three games and won one road game all season. This seasons schedule has some tough games but not a brutal road trip right out of the gate. Northern Arizona has road games against Washington and UNLV, and hosts Arkansas-Little Rock and CSU Bakersfield, NCAA Tournament teams last season, during its nonconference schedule. I should have had my head examined before last season with that schedule, Murphy said. The schedule is far more palatable this year.MARTIN RETURNS: Martin established himself as a defensive force in 2014-15, able to play ballhandlers out on the floor or swoop in for blocked shots. The 6-foot-7 forward began to assert himself on the offensive end during NAUs run through the 2015 CIT, scoring a career-high 27 points against Sacramento State and grabbing a career-high 17 rebounds against NJIT. Murphy expected Martin to take a bigger jump last season, but it was derailed by the foot injury. Look for him to pick up his scoring -- he averaged 7.7 points two seasons ago -- in his final season in Flagstaff.NEELYS BACK: Neely was expected to join Kris Yanku in forming one of the Big Skys better backcourts last season. Instead, his season was derailed by the knee injury. This season, Yanku is gone after leaving to play professionally overseas, so Neely will be the Lumberjacks floor leader and go-to player when they need a big shot.---More AP college basketball: http://collegebasketball.ap.org John Simon Jersey .

BOSTON -- Boston Marathon bombing survivor Adrianne Haslet can check mountaineering off her bucket list.The professional ballroom dancer lost a leg in the 2013 finish line attacks and ran the entire 26.2-mile race last spring. Over the weekend, she scaled Ecuadors third-highest mountain.Haslet reached the summit of 18,996-foot Volcan Cayambe with a team of climbers from the Range of Motion Project. The nonprofit group helps provide prosthetic limbs to amputees around the world who dont have access to them.The expedition summited the snow-capped mountain Sunday.I can hardly put it into words, Haslet-Davis tweeted on Monday.I feel the most grounded I have felt in over three years, Haslet said Monday from Ecuador in a Twitter message exchange with The Associated Press. There is something beautiful about disconnecting from the outside world and connecting with people who are passionate about a cause: gathering around a fire, training together, and bonding in a way you only can without outside influences.Haslet, 36, was cheering for the runners in 2013 when she was injured by the second of two bombs planted among the crowds. Three people were killed and more than 260 others wounded.After the marathon bombings, Haslet vowed to dance again and to run the 26. Terrence Brooks Jersey. 2-mile race. Having done that, she has been overcoming new obstacles in a quest to raise money and awareness for groups such as the Range of Motion Project and Oklahoma City-based Limbs for Life.Scaling the mountain, though, posed special challenges -- namely, dealing with the elements.It is freezing and you dont know until you are up there how hard it is to ice-pick straight up a glacier, said Haslet, who used the same prosthetic she walks and dances in, plus thick socks, boots and crampons.Although covering the marathon distance was incredibly painful -- Haslets special running leg caused bruising, blisters and swelling -- she said conquering Cayambe was even tougher because it was difficult to prepare at sea level.I couldnt practice in Boston how to climb a glacier at altitude, she said.Haslet grew up camping and hiking with an uncle who has climbed Everest and the rest of the seven summits.These stories around the dinner table were all going through my mind as I climbed, she said.Information from The Associated Press was used in this report.

If he, Kyle Sinckler or Nathan Hughes make an appearance, it will be their first run-out in an England shirt.Springboks head coach Allister Coetzee opted to leave out Bryan Habana from the matchday squad, although the Toulon winger looked to have shaken off a knee injury. He has gone for brute force in his pack, with Lood de Jager, Willem Alberts and Pieter-Steph du Toit providing both physicality and size.

Temple coach Matt Rhule, who guided the Owls to back-to-back 10-win seasons and an American Athletic Conference championship, will be named Baylors new coach, the school announced Tuesday.Rhule got a seven-year deal at Baylor, sources told ESPNs Brett McMurphy.Rhule, 41, replaces former Bears coach Art Briles, who was fired in late May in wake of the schools sexual assault scandal. Rhule, a native of State College, Pennsylvania, has a 28-23 record in four seasons at Temple.We could not be more excited, Baylor athletic director Mack Rhoades said in a statement. ... When we set out on our search for a new leader of our football program, we wanted a coach who shared our values, who had demonstrated success, who showed a true commitment to the overall student-athlete and who we believed could lead Baylor to a national championship.We found all of that and more in Matt and I know he will be a perfect fit with the Baylor Family.Jim Grobe, who guided the Bears to a 6-6 record as acting coach this season, will step down after Baylor plays Boise State in the Motel 6 Cactus Bowl on Dec. 27.Rhule takes over a Baylor program that has been plagued by off-the-field problems for much of the past year. In late May, the Baylor Board of Regents -- after hearing the Pepper Hamilton findings on how the university handled sexual assault complaints -- fired Briles, sanctioned athletic director Ian McCaw and removed Ken Starr from his role as president. McCaw and Starr would later leave the university altogether.I am truly honored and humbled to join thhe Baylor family, Rhule said in a statement . Brad Ziegler Jersey.

RIO DE JANEIRO, Brazil -- Brazil is facing an international embarrassment over the cancellation of a football match against England, which is sure to raise more red flags concerning the countrys readiness to hold the Confederations Cup in two weeks, the World Cup a year from now, and the Rio de Janeiro Olympics in 2016. Schuhe Fake Kaufen . A judge on Thursday ordered the cancellation of Brazils international friendly against England scheduled for Sunday at Rio de Janeiros newly renovated Maracana stadium, saying the venue is unsafe. The state government of Rio de Janeiro said it would appeal the decision by judge Adriana Costa dos Santos and believes the stadium meets all the safety standards required. Its possible the judge may back away from her order and the let match go ahead. Even if its played, the confusion sends a message that Brazil is unprepared for the Confederations Cup -- a World Cup test even with eight teams -- and more importantly the World Cup itself, and the Olympics. FIFA, the governing body of world football, has been complaining openly for a more than a year that Brazil is not ready. FIFA Secretary General Jerome Valcke was in Brazil earlier this month to check on venues. Hes acknowledged the Confederations Cup will be a maze of unfinished work and admitted that "not all operational arrangements will be 100 per cent." He then warned: "This will be impossible to repeat for the FIFA World Cup." "The World Cup, we cant reduce any requirement," he added. "On any (other) competition that would be fine, except at the World Cup. The World Cup is 99 per cent of the FIFA system. The World Cup has to be perfect. The World Cup is the diamond of FIFA." Early in 2012, Valcke angered Brazil officials with a blunt assessment that made international headlines. The rift was eventually settled, but delays remain in finishing stadiums and a myriad of other infrastructure like airports, roads and hotels for the World Cup. Much of that infrastructure will not be ready for the Confederations Cup. FIFA and the local World Cup organizing committee tried to distance themselves from the problems, saying they were not responsible for organizing the Brazil vs. England match. Local organizers, however, acknowledged they are using the match to view "operational areas." In her ruling, Costa dos Santos said she was cancelling all matches in the stadium until local organizers presented the documents showing that the venue is appropriate to host events. She said the decision was made to guarantee the "safety of fans at the Maracana." Prosecutors said that the stadium must remain closed until it is shown there will no safety or health risks to the public attending events at the venue. Prosecutors said they received a police report, saying the stadium presented "safety risks" and added that "dangerous materials" were at the site. They also noted there were not adequate measures for crowd control at the 79,000-seat venue, which has been renovated several times in recent years with some estimates suggesting $1 billion has been spent. The government said the problems were due to a "bureaucratic error," and said a report showing that the stadium is safe was not delivered to the proper authorities. The six stadiums being used for the Confederations Cup are in various stages of readiness. Six others that will be used for next years World Cup are still being built, and FIFA has demanded they be ready by Dec. 31. The Maracana stadium in Rio is scheduled to host the Confederations Cup final on June 30, and will be the venue for the World Cup final next year. It is also slated to host the opening and closing ceremonies of the 2016 Olympics. Brazil President Dilma Rousseff this week praised the six Confederations Cup venues, including Maracana. "Many people did not think we would be able to build these stadiums before the Confederations Cup at the standards required by FIFA," Rousseff said. She made reference to what she called the "old-mutt" complex, a sense that Brazil lacked confidence and would fail to meet the challenge. "But the workers who built these stadiums, the businessmen hired to do these works and all the governments involved have proved that Brazil is able to accept challenges and fulfil promptly commitments undertaken." In something of a bad omen, the day that Rousseff spoke a small part of the roof at the stadium in Salvador -- a Confederations Cup venue -- collapsed under the weight of heavy rainfall. There were no injuries. The stadium that will be used for track and field at the Olympics was also closed earlier this year because of a faulty roof. The England squad, which is hoping to qualify for the 2014 World Cup, arrived in Rio on Thursday for the match. The England squad is staying at a hotel on Rios Copacabana Beach.

The All-Pro linebacker brushed past reporters after another stellar practice, choosing not to stop and talk about the latest report that he could be facing an even longer suspension that originally thought. ESPN reported that Miller might have to sit out at least six games for violating the leagues drug abuse policy. Previously, it was believed Miller was facing a monthlong suspension to start the 2013 season. Miller had repeatedly expressed confidence he was going to successfully win an appeal of any pending penalty, insisting he had "done nothing wrong." Now, Miller is unlikely to go forward with such an appeal, which was expected to be heard Tuesday, ESPN reported. NFL spokesman Greg Aiello told The Associated Press, "We have nothing to report" on the matter, and Millers agent, Joby Branion, didnt return a phone call from the AP. Without definitive word from the league that a suspension was forthcoming, the Broncos once again had Miller line up with the rest of the No. 1 defence at practice. "Well, theres really no latest," coach John Fox said afterward. "We are aware of reports and sometimes its erroneous because I think wed probably find out before other people. ... There is no suspension and at which time there is, well report that. But anything else right now is really just talking heads." Miller, who has 30 sacks in his first two NFL seasons, is the fulcrum of co-ordinator Jack Del Rios defence, consistently commanding double teams. Hes a major reason, along with Peyton Manning, that oddsmakers favour the Broncos to represent the AFC in the Super Bowl. Two other key members of Denvers defence were missing Monday as cornerback Champ Bailey (sprained left foot) and lineman Derek Wolfe (cervical spine) were held out after getting hurt in a preseason game at Seattle last weekend. "You cant be nervous, but the guys you just mentioned are some great players," safety Rahim Moore said. "So, we have to just move on. It did feel a little different out there without themm. Nike Air Max Outlet Schweiz. " Denvers defence would look a whole lot different minus Miller, the NFLs 2011 Defensive Rookie of the Year and runner-up last season for the leagues Defensive Player of the Year. "Absolutely, its a loss that you dont want to have," Moore said. "He is a tremendous athlete, a tremendous player, a tremendous friend. So, I pray to God that he doesnt get suspended." Miller has been able to put aside the spectre of a suspension -- along with a recent arrest for failing to appear in court for traffic violations -- to have a terrific training camp, showing everyone just what the Broncos will be missing if hes banished for any length of time. On Thursday when Miller was meeting with lawyers, Nate Irving played strongside linebacker and Shaun Phillips filled in at rush end for Miller, but middle linebacker Stewart Bradley hurt his left wrist Saturday night, throwing another wrench into the ever-developing contingency plans. On Monday, Malik Jackson replaced Wolfe, Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie filled in for Bailey, Bubba Caldwell replaced Wes Welker (ankle) and C.J. Davis was at right guard for Louis Vasquez (knee). Also, recently signed centre Ryan Lilja was sidelined with a sore knee, keeping Manny Ramirez as Mannings primary snapper. Its unlikely Bailey, Wolfe or Welker will play again in the preseason, but the Broncos hope to have all three for their Sept. 5 opener against Baltimore. Wolfe was allowed to return to Denver on the teams charter Saturday night after tests at a Seattle hospital, where he was taken via ambulance after being strapped to a backboard following a collision with Seahawks fullback Michael Robinson. "I think there is some soreness, as youd expect, but from a medical standpoint, hes fine," Fox said. The Broncos are counting on the second-year pro who had six sacks from the tackle position as a rookie last year to help fill the void if the NFL does suspend Miller. If Miller is banished, hell have to leave the team on Aug. 30. "Weve got to continue to be good teammates and support him whether its four games, no games, six games," linebacker Wesley Woodyard said. "Were still going to be there for him." ' ' ' 
CHARLOTTE, N.

Premier League table Team Points Goal difference Leicester 50 18 Man City 47 23 Tottenham 45 25 Arsenal 45 15 Head-to-headsThere are some blockbuster, potentially title-deciding fixtures to come in the final stage of the season between the Premier Leagues leading teams. Leicester travel to Manchester City on Saturday and then face Arsenal at the Emirates live on Sky Sports the following Sunday, in a double header which will put their title credentials to the ultimate test. Leicester and Man City clash on Saturday Like Leicester, Man City also follow their Etihad showdown with Claudio Ranieris side with a tough test against a title challenger; they host Tottenham on the same Sunday, again live on Sky Sports. Another key fixture for Manuel Pellegrinis men will be their clash at home to Arsenal on the penultimate weekend of the season. The meeting has been earmarked as a potential title-decider since the fixture list was announced last summer. But will both teams still be in touching distance of Leicester by that point?As well as City and Leicester, Arsenal must travel to White Hart Lane to take on Tottenham on March 5. The Gunners have already won once there this season in the Capital One Cup. They may need to do so again to keep their title hopes on track. Top four remaining fixtures Leicester Man City Tottenham Arsenal Man City (a) Leicester (h) Watford (h) Bournemouth (a) Arsenal (a) Tottenham (h) Man City (a) Leicester (h) Norwich (h) Newcastle (a) Swansea (h) Man Utd (a) West Brom (h) Liverpool (a) West Ham (a) Swansea (h) Watford (a) Aston Villa (h) Arsenal (h) Tottenham (a) Newcastle (h) Norwich (a) Aston Villa (a) West Brom (h) Crystal Palace (a) Man Utd (h) Bournemouth (h) Everton (a) Southampton (h) Bournemouth (a) Liverpool (a) Watford (h) Sunderland (a) West Brom (h) Man Utd (h) West Ham (a) West Ham (h) Chelsea (a) Stoke (a) Crystal Palace (h) Swansea (h) Stoke (h) West Brom (h) Sunderland (a) Man Utd (a) Southampton (a) Chelsea (a) Norwich (h) Everton (h) Arsenal (h) Southampton (h) Man City (a) Chelsea (a) Swansea (a) Newcastle (a) Aston Villa (h) Toughest run-inWhen it comes to tough run-ins, they dont get much harder than Leicesters. If the Foxes havent wrapped up the title by then, theyll need to take points from a trip to Manchester United, a home game with Everton and a final-day visit to Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.In contrast, Arsenal, as well as their trip to Man City, face home games with Norwich and Aston Villa. Citys final three games include away games at Southampton and Swansea, while Spurs also play two of their final three on the road, with trips to Chelsea and Newcastle sandwiching their home clash with Southampton.Other commitments Man City have FA Cup, League Cup and Champions League commitments to juggle Leicester hold a potentially crucial advantage over their title rivals: they have just 14 games left to concentrate on this season. Out of the FA Cup and League Cup and with no European commitments, Ranieri and his coaching staff are free to focus solely on Leicesters weekly Premier League test.In contrast, Man City have a potential 26 games remaining, with their Capital One Cup final, Champions League knockout phase and FA Cup run keeping them occupied. Tottenham have one more than that, with their potential nine Europa League ties and four FA Cup contests taking their tally to 27.Arsenal could also have up to 25 games to consider, should their FA Cup and Champions League involvement continue. All of which, plays into the hands of Leicester.Injury problems Arsenal have missed injured Santi Cazorla When it comes to injuries, Manchester City have cause for concern. According to physioroom.com, City have the joint-highest number of injuries at present in the Premier League. Seven City players are in the treatment room: Vincent Kompany, Kevin de Bruyne, Jesus Navas, Wilfried Bony, Samir Nasri, Fabian Delph and Eliaquim Mangala.Arsenal - who are recovering from a difficult period with key players sidelined - and Tottenham are currently in better shape, with four players out injured each. However, it is Leicester who are faring best in this category. At this point, Ranieri has virtually a full squad of players to choose from; only Matty James and Jeff Schlupp are in the treatment room.Title-winning experience Manuel Pellegrini and Yaya Toure know what it takes to win the Premier League With just five points separating the top four, title-winning experience could prove decisive. Man City have plenty of that. Champions just two seasons ago, many of the City squad have formed the foundations of a team which have won the Premier League twice in the past four seasons. Manuel Pellegrini, a title winner in his first season in England by just two points, knows what it takes to get over the line.Arsene Wenger is of course a three-time Premier League winner, but such has been the gap since Arsenals 2003/04 title win, of the current squad, only Petr Cech and Danny Welbeck have experience of lifting the trophy (with Chelsea and Manchester United, respectively).A Premier League win would be a first for Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino and his squad, while Leicester will be leaning on the experience of two-time winner Robert Huth, who was a champion during his Chelsea days. Foxes boss Ranieri has never won a top flight league during his long management career.Form Harry Kanes second goal against Norwich was his 14th goal in his last 15 Premier League appearances Tottenham, Leicester and Man City occupy three of the top four spots in the Premier League table - but the other place isnt occupied by Arsenal.The Gunners have failed to score in three consecutive Premier League games for the first time since February 2009. In contrast, the other title chasers - and their key men - are on fire.After netting three times in his past two games, Leicesters Jamie Vardy has 18 league goals this season - just one fewer than Real Madrids Cristiano Ronaldo and Barcelonas Luis Suarez.Tottenhams Dele Alli has had a hand in 10 goals in his last 13 Premier League games (six goals, four assists), while his team-mate Harry Kane has scored 14 goals in his last 15 Premier League appearances - after managing just three in his 17 league appearances prior to this run.Sergio Aguero, meanwhile, remains as prolific as ever for Man City. The striker has 12 goals in his last 10 Premier League games.Can Arsenals main men rediscover the scoring touch? And which of Leicester, Man City and Tottenham will be able to sustain their current streaks long enough to clinch the crown? Jamie Vardy has 18 league goals this season ConclusionGoing into the final straight Leicester - incredibly and against all the odds - are in prime position, three points clear of their challengers and with a significantly lighter workload. However, Ranieris side face tough consecutive away days at Man City and Arsenal and their run-in, on paper, is harder than the rest.Man City are well-placed, though, with the experience of clinching tight title races. The fitness of Aguero will remain central to their hopes - and their other injury concerns to key figures such as Kompany and De Bruyne cannot be ignored.As for Tottenham, could their young team - on average the youngest in the division - pull off a Premier League title win? To all those who say it is a step too far too soon for 19-year-old Alli and co, will point to their remarkable form, which has seen them defeated just three times in 24 outings this season. A goal difference of +25 - the highest of all four - is in their advantage, too.  Arsenal, though, were not so long ago top of the table and seemingly on course to end their title wait. With FA Cup and Champions League commitments resurfacing, can Wengers side re-find their rhythm which saw them win 10 out of 14 Premier League games from September?Much like this Premier League season as a whole, the title race remains unpredictable. All four teams will be in action live on Sky Sports on Sunday, February 14, when Arsenal host Leicester and Tottenham travel to Man City. Ahead of the huge weekend, Thierry Henry and Jamie Redknapp will be on Sky Sports News The Morning View between 10am and 12pm on Friday, February 12 to preview the games.  Also See: Cech predicts title twists Awesome Alli pivotal Klopp: I nearly clapped Vardy Hart: Trophy push for Pellegrini Paul Lo Duca Jersey . -- Golden State Warriors coach Mark Jackson asked his players a simple question during Fridays morning shootaround: How many of them had ever been on a team 14 games over .

Lewis Hamilton could dominate F1 for the next 10 years, his father Anthony Hamilton has warned the triple champions rivals. Paul Molitor Brewers Jersey . Hamilton made it back-to-back drivers titles last year after a dominant campaign saw him crowned with three races to spare. He turned 31 in January and told Sky Sports F1 ahead of last Novembers Mexican GP he planned to retire at 37, but his father sees him competing longer.He is only going to get better, he is only going to get stronger, Hamilton Snr told Sky Sports News HQ at the Zoom Charity Auction.He has another seven to 10 years left in the sport and he is extremely competitive. He is still young so he has quite a few left in him. Despite having many interests outside of F1, including in the music industry where Hamilton has recorded a studio album, his father doesnt see him walking away from the sport any time soon.You can never say never, but I dont believe so. Lewis is a competitive soul, he loves motor racing and he loves to win, he added.As long as he has got that spirit he is going to remain in F1. I think he has another seven years minimum left in the business. That is bad news for everyone else. After two years in F1s dominant car, Hamilton believes his son wants to see others close the gap in 2016 to make it more of a challenge.If they were all in the same level car it would be fantastic, Hamilton Snr said. Lewis Hamilton popped into the Sky Sports studio during the 3rd Quarter of the Super Bowl What Lewis doesnt want to do is run away with it and just win races because the others cars arent up to scratch or the other teams are struggling. He wants everyone to be at the same level and he wants to win on merit.Hes winning on merit because hes in the best team and is doing the best job, but he would like to see other people compete and have to struggle for a win.

He has since implemented the game plan twice in four days, and on both occasions struck centuries.His 112 in the first ODI against England was his best innings in the format, though his dismissal took a bit of the sheen off the innings that began with a rousing six over square-leg that burst a hole inside an advertising board deep into the Shere Bangla National Stadiums grandstand. That century was a follow-up to his 121 for the BCB XI in Englands warm-up match on Tuesday.Following that innings, which he also started with a cracking boundary off Chris Woakes, Imrul said that it was Chandika Hathurusinghas advice that made him change tack.It has taken him more than eight years of playing at the international level to appreciate that there is nothing wrong in getting out of his shell to use his full potential. The hundred in Mirpur was testament of his ability to accept that he needed to change his approach to batting. It is also another feather in the cap of the coach Hathurusingha who has now made a difference to the career of yet another international cricketer.While Imruls Test career finally took off in 2014, he never quite hit the same note in the limited-overs game. He has opened in all but seven of his 60 matches, but was always playing second fiddle to Tamim Iqbal. Even when he did well, Imrul always seemed to struggle to pace his innings suitably.Since his debut in 2008, under Mohammad Ashraful and Jamie Siddons, Imrul had developed into an opening batsman who needed to play catch-up at the top level. He had issues dealing with deliveries outside the off stump, especially those angling away. He was comfortable against straight and incoming deliveries, but when bowling attacks figured him out, he looked lost for options.The cut and square-drive were his strengths too, and along with scoring runs in front of square on the leg-side, a big innings depended on finding gaps in these areas. For the first three seasons of his international career, Imrul batted without having too much focus on him; much of the opponents attention when playing Bangladesh circled around Ashraful, Tamim and Shakib Al Hasan.When he lost his form towards the end off 2011, he was swiftly dropped and replaced by seven other openers who were tried with Tamim. Lorenzo Cain Brewers Jersey. Only Anamul Haque and Shamsur Rahman came close to filling his gap completely but via runs at No. 3 in the Test team, Imrul returned to the ODI squad after more than two years.Though in his return match against Pakistan in March 2014 saw him add 150 for the opening stand with Anamul, the next time he opened was in the 2015 World Cup in place of the injured Anamul. It was a disastrous time for him as he was a mid-tournament replacement with only some domestic innings under his belt. He feared that he was about to be dropped but in 2015, he emerged as an important Test batsman. The fear didnt go away completely as he was in danger of becoming typecast as a Test specialist, a tag that can be career-threatening for any hopes of returning to white-ball cricket.His first attempt at reinventing his game came midway through last years Bangladesh Premier League after he had run into woeful form. He finished off with two rapid fifties, the second of which was in the final where he helped Comilla Victorians to the title.But this latest change in his general outlook is something that has been happening in the background for quite some time. At some point during Bangladeshs long training camp this summer, Hathurusingha told Imrul to think outside his box.The aim was to give Imrul a greater presence at the crease through positive body language, so the coach told him to think of playing the cut and pull off every ball that offers width or is pitched short. At the same time he was encouraged to deal with good balls differently, go for singles or defend with intent, but bad balls, of which there can be plenty, should be hit for fours and sixes.It sounds like a simple message but Imruls career has perhaps changed for good. He has now found success with the new formula so instantaneously that he may not want to go any other way.He can now go after the bowlers in the first Powerplay and, given his experience, knows how to work the ball around when the slower bowlers come on. But with his mindset now reset to a more attacking mode, he will always be ready to put away the bad ball. ' ' '

CHICAGO -- The Chicago Bears rebuilt their front seven on defense. Greg Maddux Braves Jersey . They gave their offensive line a makeover, too. And they also got hit with a rash of injuries.Between players going down and poor play in general, it was a rough preseason for a team trying to pick itself up after finishing last in the NFC North at 6-10.On the positive side for the Bears? Teams have a history of making big jumps in their second season under coach John Fox.Carolina did it. So did Denver. And the Chicago is hoping the pattern holds.The Bears have been plagued by injuries and at least two important players might be limited or unavailable for the opener at Houston on Sept. 11: star right guard Kyle Long (shoulder) and outside linebacker Pernell McPhee, who had offseason knee surgery.There are also concerns in the secondary, and the offense is missing two of its top contributors from last season after Chicago parted with running back Matt Forte and tight end Martellus Bennett.Besides all that, they released Robbie Gould and ended an 11-year run with the most accurate kicker in franchise history while upgrading their offensive line by signing three-time Pro Bowl guard Josh Sitton on Sunday night.Here are some things to look for this season:CATCHING UP: The Bears will finally get to see just how just how dynamic a receiving tandem Alshon Jeffery and Kevin White can be. They never got that chance last season.The 6-foot-3, 216-pound White missed his rookie season because of a stress fracture in his left shin after being drafted with the seventh overall pick. But with his size and physical skills, Chicago is counting on big things from the West Virginia product.Hes an explosive guy, Cutler said. You can see hes a physical specimen. So well just find ways to get him the ball in space and kind of let him catch and run and use that speed and that burst hes got.Jeffery led the team in receiving, but there are questions about his ability to stay healthy, not to mention his future with the club.Calf, hamstring, groin and shoulder problems limited the former Pro Bowl receiver to nine games last season after he played in all 16 the previous two years. A strained hamstring in training camp only raised more questions.Jeffery is also playing under the franchise tag after he and the Bears were unable to agree to a long-term contract extension.LINING UP: Quarterback Jay Cutler should be happy after the Bears signed Sitton. After all, Chicago now has two elite guards.With Sitton at left guard, rookie Cody Whitehair could slide to center. Veteran Ted Larsen, who took over when Hroniss Grasu tore the ACL in his right knee in early August, is another option.A healthy and effective Long would also take some pressure off new right tackle Bobby Massie as well as the center. Long is back at guard, the position he played his first two seasons, after filling in at right tackle last year.UP FRONT: While the defense made strides in its first year under Fox and coordinator Vic Fangio, the Bears were inconsistent and lacked playmakers. They tied for 22nd against the run, 22nd in sacks and 30th in interceptions.Chicago is hoping that changes with the additions of 336-pound defensive end Akiem Hicks, inside linebackers Jerrell Freeman and Danny Trevathan, and No. 9 overall draft pick Leonard Floyd at outside linebacker.PROVING TIME: With two-time Pro Bowler Forte and the colorful Bennett gone, the Bears are banking on players who are unproven or have injury histories to fill the voids.Jeremy Langford, who had 537 yards rushing and 279 receiving as a rookie, leads a committee that includes KaDeem Carey, Jacquizz Rodgers and fifth-round pick Jordan Howard.At tight end, the Bears are counting on Zach Miller staying healthy -- no sure thing given his history. The veteran earned a two-year contract after he re-established himself last season by catching 34 passes for 439 yards and a team-leading five touchdown receptions. Miller also missed the 2012, `13 and `14 seasons because of injuries and spent much of the preseason in the NFLs concussion protocol.SMOOTH TRANSITION: The Bears maintained some continuity for Cutler when offensive coordinator Adam Gase took the Miami Dolphins coaching job by promoting quarterbacks coach Dowell Loggains. That was hardly a surprise.Cutler had one of his best seasons for Chicago, posting a career-high 92.3 rating and cutting his interceptions from 18 to 11 in 15 games.---AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and AP NFL Twitter feed: http://twitter.com/AP-NFL Clete Boyer Braves Jersey .

SANTA CLARA, Calif. -- For now, Chip Kelly is sticking with Blaine Gabbert through thick and thin.And time will tell what the 49ers coach decides if and when backup Colin Kaepernick gets back to his ideal playing weight and finds a groove following surgeries on his non-throwing left shoulder, left knee and right thumb.After a commanding 28-0 Monday night win against the Rams in Week 1, Gabbert and San Francisco lost 47-26 Sunday on the road to Cam Newton and Carolina.Hes our starter and Ive got a lot of confidence in Blaine, Kelly said Monday. So, were not thinking or talking about not having Blaine in there. Its about everybody on offense playing better right now.While Gabbert threw for 243 yards and two touchdowns, he also tossed a pair of late interceptions and was sacked twice. And it hardly gets any easier this week.San Francisco (1-1) is going to the hostile confines of CenturyLink Field to face the nemesis Seattle Seahawks and their experienced, staunch secondary -- a group of defensive backs far more experienced than what the Panthers possess.Kaepernick, meanwhile, continues to regain his strength with an aim of returning to his previous playing weight of about 225 pounds, though Kelly isnt sure how close he is to that number right now. Kaepernick, whose decision not to stand for the national anthem has been one of the NFLs biggest stories, wasnt able to lift weights for much of his time rehabbing from the three surgeries.Its not something thats going to happen overnight, Kelly said. Hes not going to get to 225 in a week. If you are, its not going to be a good 225. Its about building himself back up, and you can see kind of where hes comfortable in terms of being able to play. Its something thatt hes working extremely hard at. Satchel Paige Braves Jersey.

He did not travel to North Carolina with the team.Davis, who turns 27 next month, retired in June 2015 after his previous season was affected by a concussion that left him loopy.Davis said in early December 2014 he was able to drive home following a cross-country flight from New York in November that year despite feeling loopy from a concussion he didnt initially realize was so severe.He took an elbow to the head during that Nov. 16, 2014, victory against the Giants. He missed the next four games before returning for San Franciscos last two contests of the season.He was reinstated by the NFL on July 30 and returned to the team for the start of training camp.

I havent seen A.D. since Thursday, so well see where he is with it and whats going on. And obviously, hell go into the league concussion protocol and well go through all the process there.

Sussex 527 (Wells 120, Brown 113, Jordan 52, M Taylor 4-130) beat Gloucestershire 367 (Klinger 129, Mustard 71, Miles 56, Magoffin 5-73) and 158 (Taylor 56, Jordan 4-36) by an innings and two runs Scorecard Captain Luke Wright has said Sussex are keen for out-of-contract Ireland batsman Ed Joyce to stay with the county but his future will be decided at the end of the season. Brett Gardner Yankees Jersey .Its dependent on Joycey, Wright said after his side wrapped up an innings victory over Gloucestershire. He has huge ambitions with Ireland, and wants to achieve Test status with them. I think he is going to wait until the end of the season and see how he feels.Joyce has scored 955 Championship runs at 73 this season, including three tons, and his departure would leave a huge hole in Sussexs top order. Joyces young family have moved back to Ireland, but he remains five short of his stated ambition of 50 first-class centuries, which may play a part in his decision.In my mind hes still the best batsman in county cricket and Id have him as long as hes playing the game. A lot will come down to how he feels, whether he wants to continue playing county cricket, but Ill be keeping on having a word in his ear trying to get him to stay.Sussex wasted no time completing their second win of the season in the Specsavers County Championship, requiring just 17 balls on the final day to take the last of the nine Gloucestershire wickets they needed to win by an innings and two runs.Sussex had taken total control of the game on the second and third days, as centuries from Luke Wells and Ben Brown built a 160-run lead on first innings. With Liam Norwell absent with a head injury sustained while batting on the second morning, Sussex only required nine second innings wicket and, either side of tea on Monday, they picked up eight of them for just 112.In their way stood the Taylor brothers, Jack and Matt, who - even with an extra eight overs taken on the third day - made it to stumps just 11 runs behind, with the former smiting three sixes in his 52 not out.On the final morning, their resistance briefly continued, with Matt punching Steve Magoffin through the covers for four in the first over, and Jack - who looked to farm the strike - hitting Chris Jordan down the ground for four more.But in Magoffins second over, Jack Taylor looked to clear the infield and smash Gloucestershire into the lead, but was bowled for 56 to become the Australians seventh wicket of the match. Jordan finished with 4 for 36 in the second innings to go with his 52 runs.Sussex gained the maximum 24 points from the match, while Gloucestershire took six. Both teams have five games left in the season, and Sussex remain unbeaten, although nine of their matches have ended in draws.

MILWAUKEE -- Receiver Jordy Nelson is coming back from a knee injury. Francisco Cervelli Braves Jersey . Running back Eddie Lacy slimmed down. Linebacker Clay Matthews is returning to a more familiar role.As for quarterback Aaron Rodgers, he dropped the cheese from his diet.Its what amounts to offseason drama for the Green Bay Packers, who enter training camp looking to reclaim the NFC North title and win a second Super Bowl with Rodgers under center.The clocks ticking. Rodgers turns 33 in December. Hes in the prime of his career, and hes also thinking about the future.So after undergoing minor surgery following the playoffs to clean up a knee he hurt in high school, Rodgers adjusted his diet, including cutting out dairy. He said in June that he was at his lowest weight since about his second year in the league in 2007.Because it carries over not just in the offseason, but what youre eating the night before the game and what youre eating in the morning and the afternoon, if its a night game, Rodgers said. Just how that it affects your performance.Rodgers last season had his lowest passer rating (92.7) and completion percentage (60.7) since taking over as the starter in 2008. Not having Nelson all season hurt, as did Lacys subpar campaign.Minnesota ended Green Bays four-year reign atop the NFC North. The Packers still finished the regular season 10-6, beat the Redskins in a wild-card game and took Arizona to overtime on the road before losing in the divisional round.The division is better this year, but the Packers remain an NFC favorite, especially with Rodgers orchestrating the offense. Here are some other things to watch in training camp for Green Bay:JUST JORDY: To be safe, the Packers could proceed cautiously in camp with Nelson, who got hurt last August. Coach Mike McCarthy has raved about Nelsons work ethic in rehab, and Nelsons recovery, by all accounts, appears to be on schedule. One of the biggest problems with the offense last season was the lack of a deep threat to replace Nelson. If his return goes according to plan, his presence helps take pressure off Randall Cobb, along with the cavalry of younger, less experienced receivers vying for targets.WORKING OUT: After getting called out by McCarthy following the season for playing at too heavy of a weight, Lacy made a few changes in the offseason. He worked out with P90X fitness guru Tony Horton, mixed in basketball and boxing, and altered his diet. Lacy, listed on the roster at 5-foot-11, 234 pounds, looked slimmer during offseason workouts. The second-round draft pick in 2013 is entering the final year of his rookie deal.CLAYS DAY: Matthews played inside linebacker so well last season he made the Pro Bowl at that position for the first time. But thats not his best role, and McCarthy shifted Matthews back outside in the offseason, where he can focus on teeing off on quarterbacks. It is Matthews natural position.Hes going to get back there where he can put more pressure on the quarterback. I think its going to help out the team in a lot of different ways, said Julius Peppers, the Packers other veteran pass-rushing bookend.INSIDE MEN: Matthews move means the Packers will be looking for stability again at inside linebacker. It should be the most closely watched defensive competition of camp. Jake Ryan, a fourth-round pick out of Michigan last year, started late last season. Sam Barrington is coming back from a foot injury that forced him to miss most of 2015. The fiery Barrington helped shore up the run defense when he and Matthews took over inside for the last couple months of the 2014 season. Blake Martinez, a fourth-round rookie out of Stanford, received good reviews during offseason workouts and could also get a look during training camp.SPREADING IT AROUND: While Nelson is back, the Packers will also be looking to replace the targets that went to James Jones. The amicable veteran had rapport with Rodgers, but wasnt re-signed with a slew of younger receivers eager to take on expanded roles. Jeff Janis and Jared Abbrederis each played well against the Cardinals in the playoffs after Cobb went down with an injury. Davante Adams and Ty Montgomery are also looking to bounce back after dealing with injuries last year.---AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and www.twitter.com/AP-NFL John Smoltz Jersey . -- The plastic that was taped across the lockers in Oaklands clubhouse came down and the champagne that was on ice went back into the cooler.

The Seminoles (4-0) have scored at least 80 points in each of their games. Saqlain Mushtaq has called on the ECB to appoint a full-time spin bowling coach to work with the England team and said he would love to fill the role.While Saqlain, the former Pakistan offspinner, is hardly impartial in such matters - he is currently fulfilling such a job on a brief consultancy basis - he makes a strong case both with his words and his record.Having joined up with the squad after the two Tests in Bangladesh, he has presided over a sharp improvement in the performance of Adil Rashid, in particular, and argues that the importance of spin bowling is undervalued compared to other disciplines.It is very important to have a full-time spin coach, Saqlain, who leaves the tour after the third Test in Mohali, said. If you look at the highest wicket-taker in Test cricket and the highest wicket-taker in one-day cricket, they are spinners.And it is not just in the subcontinent, but when you go abroad on the fourth and fifth day of the Test match the spinners are the main bowlers. The whole team relies on them so spin is a main thing and you have to have a full-time coach for the spin … not just for the main team but on the county circuit as well. I believe that.It is not just to look after the spinners; it is to help the batsmen as well as to how the spinners think about the batsmen.While the ECB does already employ various bowling coaches - former England offspinner Peter Such is the lead spin bowling coach - it has become common practice for the England team to be accompanied only by a fast-bowling coach when on tour. Mushtaq Ahmed, the former Pakistan legspinner, was also engaged on a part-time consultancy basis in the past but, recently, it has been an oddly overlooked area in an England set-up which boasts experts across many other fields.Its not just me saying this, Saqlain said, evoking recent comments by Graeme Swann. But I think a few weeks age Swanny mentioned it. Lots of experts mention it.It seems the ECB is listening. Andrew Strauss suggested last week that the ECB is open to the idea of engaging a spin-bowling coach on a more permanent basis - though perhaps not full-time - and that Saqlain was effectively in something of a trial period.He can only have impressed. Despite having had little time to work with the England spinners - Before the series you cant really open the technical side of things, he said - he has clearly built a strong rapport with them and inspired confidence. Babe Ruth Jersey. Rashid is the highest wicket-taker in the series with 13 - Shane Warne never took more than 14 in India - while Moeen Ali currently has a better strike rate (67) than R Ashwin (70.5).To know the players is the most important thing for me, Saqlain said. The first couple of days I started to build relationships. It is based on trust, truth, honesty and respect. This is my philosophy on working. The boys are passionate about cricket and they are very hard working guys, especially Moeen, Rash and Zafar Ansari. They are very keen to learn and are hard-working chaps.There wasnt too much technical stuff to begin with but we did work on tactical things and a lot of mental things. The preparation that goes into knowing the oppositions strengths and weaknesses and to know what is our strength. These are the basics.Im enjoying it. Every session, every conversation during the breaks. Im loving the support staff and everyone. It is like a family. It is a relaxed atmosphere, but a professional one. I would love to keep going and be involved in the future.I believe that things are going well and were on the same page. Im trying to bring them, myself and the captain on the same page. Things are going nicely.It seems the admiration is mutual. He describes Rashid as a legspinner with everything who can achieve the highest level within the game and Moeen as a bowler on the way to being one of the top three offspinners in the world.Adil is a very skilful guy and hes got a lot of variations, Saqlain said. Were trying to make things simple and then it is easier to deliver and easier to control. Were making it simple from a thinking and technical point of view. Im saying to him to concentrate on his strengths whatever his strengths are. And hes working on that.Moeen is a proper offspinner. The way he bowls, the energy, the shape of the ball, the control, everything. We shouldnt be thinking that he is not a proper offspinner. He is an allrounder and I would say he is equally good at batting and bowling.He is young and he hasnt bowled as much and had the mileage before. Hes improving and the more he works hard and the more he plays the longer version, the more mileage he will get. You can rate him in the top three offspinners in the world. ' ' ' 
ENGLEWOOD, Colo. Fake Vans . -- Wade Phillips is cracking wise again. But his broken rib is no joke. So, hes strongly considering a move from the sideline to the coaching box when the Broncos visit Oakland on Sunday night.Denvers defensive coordinator suffered a cracked rib last weekend when Chargers running back Melvin Gordon -- shoved by Von Miller -- plowed over him on the sideline, sending Phillips to the hospital.Not that anybodys interested, but Im day to day, thats my status, Phillips said Thursday as he stepped up to the podium for his first public comments since the jarring hit.Of course, the 69-year-old must-follow on Twitter has had plenty of witty tweets in the days since the big hit, including a GIF of a chef cutting up a beef rib and this comment: I was lucky only fractured 1 rib (have 23 more good ones).Phillips was injured in the first half of Denvers 27-19 win over San Diego on Sunday. His head bounced off the ground in a scary scene as Gordon bowled him over during Bradley Robys pick-6 of Philip Rivers.I said, `If Im going to go out, Id like to go out on an interception for a touchdown, Phillips said.He was immobilized and carted off the field, then became the third member of the Broncos taken from the stadium in an ambulance in the last month, joining coach Gary Kubiak (complex migraine on Oct. 9 following a game against Atlanta) and left tackle Russell Okung (concussion-like symptoms on Oct. 13 after a game at San Diego).Phillips said he felt fortunate he wasnt hurt any worse because I hit the back of my head on the ground and they did the CT scan or whatever on my head and they didnt find anything.I dont have to go through (concussion) protocol this week, Phillips said.What he is considering is staying out of harms way, however.Im thinking about being in the box this week just because I am in some pain and I really dont want to get hit again certainly, Phillips said. I did go up in the box when I was with Kube in 2011 when they took my kidney and my gallbladder out. I went upstairs. So, it may be another instance where I might do that.The Broncos (6-2) face the Raiders (6-2) in an AFC West showdown Sunday night.Having Wade out there, you get to see him, you get to high-five and stuff, but thats not the important thing, Miller said. The important thing is getting the calls, making sure that hes out of harms way, making sure hes safe no matter what.Phillips has spent most of his career on the sideline save for that one game with the Texans five years ago. But he said there were some advantages to being in the coaches box.Its clear up there. Its obviously quiet and you can see well, he said.Also, unlike last time he was in the coaching box, the league now allows coaches to communicate directly with the defensive player designated to receive the play calls.So, it makes it easier, Phillips said.The player on the receiving end of Phillips calls is expected to be linebacker Brandon Marshall, expected to return from a pulled hamstring that sidelined him last week.The Broncos might be without star cornerback Aqib Talib as they face Michael Crabtree and Amari Cooper.The Broncos sent Talib to California for a second opinion on his ailing lower back Thursday. Talib missed last weeks game and Roby started in his place and earned the AFCs defensive player of the week honors after a stellar performance that included the 49-yard interception return for a touchdown.So, I obviously feel good about him, and we always have, Phillips said. But we hope Talib comes back whenever he can, certainly.With Kayvon Webster (hamstring) also ailing, Lorenzo Doss would again be the nickel back. He had two big pass breakups last week, including a fourth-and-goal breakup from the 2 in the closing minutes.Doss, a second-year pro from Tulane, had a slew of interceptions in training camp and the preseason, including a pair of pick-6s of Mark Sanchez.He kind of ran our other quarterback out of here with two 100-yard interceptions, Phillips said.And that one was no joke.---AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and AP NFL Twitter feed: www.twitter.com/AP-NFL---Follow AP Pro Football Writer Arnie Melendrez Stapleton on Twitter: http://twitter.com/arniestapleton Fake Vans For Sale . Barcelona also left injured defenders Carles Puyol, Javier Mascherano and Jordi Alba out of its squad for the trip to Glasgow.

NBA officials ruled the court unplayable in the Bucks final exhibition game on Oct. 25 because players were slipping, and the game was cancelled midway through the first period.EASTBOURNE, England - It wasnt quite the Wimbledon warmup Canadian Milos Raonic was hoping for. The top seed from Thornhill, Ont., dropped his second-round match Wednesday at the Eastbourne grass-court tournament, falling 6-2, 7-6 (7) decision to Croatian Ivan Dodig. The Eastbourne event also wasnt kind to Torontos Daniel Nestor, who earlier lost his first-round doubles event with Swedish partner Robert Lindstedt. Raonic will open Wimbledon next week as the mens 17th seed but heads to the All England Club badly lacking in grass confidence. "I couldnt have started in a worse way, I think I missed four backhands to start off the match," said Raonic. "I had break chances and then lost my serve easily again. "He was doing a lot of things well, but a lot of it comes down on me, things I didnt do. Even in the second set I think it was pretty poor play." Raonic lost his first-round match on grass last week an event in Halle, Germany and immediately applied for a wild-card entry into Eastbourne. He was installed as the top seed based upon his No. 15 ATP world ranking. "I cant play much worse, so its only going to get better," Raonic said. "I think I should be positive in that sense." Dodig registered more aces (12) than his hard-hitting 22-year-old Canadian opponent, who had nine in the match that lasted just under 90 minutes. Raonic has an 8-8 career record on grass but is 0-2 against Dodig, who beat him on Barcelona clay in 2011. Fake Vans Website. Dodig took control of the opening set by breaking Raonics first serve. The 54th-ranked Dodig recorded a second break for a 5-2 lead when Raonic put a backhand into the net. A game later, the Dodig took the set with an overhead smash. The two stayed on serve in the second set to force the tiebreaker. Raonic went ahead 2-0 before Dodig rallied to tie it 5-5. Raonic saved one match point with an ace, then fired another to give himself a set point. However, it was Dodig who finally earned the upset win as Raonics return went out. "I was trying to get a little bit closer and I had my chance at the tiebreak," Raonic said. "But I dont think I should let situations where I let two double faults from my opponent pass by and not win a tiebreaker. "Thats pretty bad." The good news for Raonic is he believes his problems on grass can be fixed. "Its more me," he said. "Ive got to figure out my thing. "Its like Im just not executing the things I need to execute. Obviously the surface doesnt make it easy. I think its easier for me to figure out things on hard courts per se, but I think its all on my shoulders." Earlier, Marion Bartoli of France withdrew from the tournament with a viral infection, giving No. 2-seeded Li Na of China a walkover into the quarter-finals. ' ' '
