Christian Ponder injury leaves uncertainty at QB for Vikings

The Minnesota Vikings entered Thursday night’s game with questions about their quarterback position, and they left with a much-needed win, but the position in disarray after Christian Ponder left with a dislocated shoulder.

Ponder’s injury was a cruel twist of fate on a night the embattled quarterback succeeded at managing the game. He didn’t do anything flashy, but settled after a first quarter interception to complete 81 percent of his passes at an efficient 8.3 yards per attempt while posting a passer rating of 113.1.

An attempted end zone dive in the third quarter changed everything for Ponder. Redskins defensive back DeAngelo Hall made contact with Ponder’s shoulder and despite positive signs he left the field and did not return. Whether Thursday represents his final snaps in Minnesota hinges on the severity of his shoulder injury and whether he can return in 2013.

The Vikings have plenty of time to think about the quarterback position before their Week 11 game against the Seattle Seahawks. Matt Cassel stepped in as needed, but his play was inconsistent. The box score shows an efficient 4-for-6 passing night, but the offense lacked the verticality it displayed with Ponder on the field.

Head coach Leslie Frazier will have to make a difficult decision over the next ten days. Cassel has the ability to be a game manager, but at this stage he’s little more, while Freeman has the potential to make plays with his arm but could also become a liability. The wild card is Ponder’s injury, as the third-year quarterback splits the extremes and would be the right answer, provided he can play again soon.

Myles Garrett is about as close to a consensus No. 1 pick as you’ll find in any given draft year.

Reuben Foster is run-in with medical staff during the combine got him sent home, but it didn’t change Mayock is perspective on him as the top linebacker in this year is draft. There were only minimal changes to these rankings, with Davis and Cunningham switching spots.

Myles Garrett is about as close to a consensus No. 1 pick as you’ll find in any given draft year. The biggest change in Mayock is edge rusher rankings is Solomon Thomas, who was at No. 4 in the pre-combine version. Regardless of the order in which Mayock has them ranked, these are all elite prospects and should be off the board on Day 1 of the draft.

Limited Mens Senquez Golson Jersey The jersey, valued at $500,000, would fetch a hefty price on the memorabilia market. The league said that the jersey had been found in the possession of someone who had posed as a member of the international media. That person is suspected to be C. Martin Mauricio Ortega, formerly of Mexican news organization La Prensa, though Ortega has not been charged with any crime at this point.

In an unexpected twist, the league also announced that this person also had Brady is jersey from the Patriots Super Bowl XLIX win over the Seattle Seahawks. Until Monday, that missing jersey hadn’t made headlines. But the fact that it had also been stolen may be part of the reason that the jersey from Super Bowl LI became such a big story.

Ortega has been attending Super Bowls for over a decade, and met Brady in Jacksonville when the Patriots beat the Eagles in Super Bowl XXXIX, according to Eric Edholm of Yahoo! Sports. Ortega took a photo with Brady, which is generally a frowned-upon practice for credentialed media members. For the record, so is stealing jerseys.

Raiders vs. Texans 2017 odds: Houston favored despite losing streak

The Oakland Raiders will hit the road to take on the Houston Texans in Week 11. Oakland (3-6) has lost its last two games, one in a 49-20 beat down at the hands of Nick Foles and the Eagles, and the other to a struggling Giants team. Houston (2-7) has lost seven consecutive contests, but has looked better with hometown hero Case Keenum under center.

Denver is a touchdown favorite despite being on the road and playing against a 4-4 Chargers team which could potentially exploit the Broncos’ biggest weakness. Denver is 30th in the NFL defending the pass while the Chargers are fourth in passing yards per game and third in yards per attempt. Denver leads the league in both categories, meaning Sunday’s game could turn into a shootout. The total was set accordingly, opening at 57 points.
Game Mens Xavier Cooper Jersey
Although Denver and San Diego have essentially traded control of the AFC West during the past decade, both are currently trailing the Chiefs. With playoff berths and seeding on the line, Sunday’s game could have a considerable impact on the AFC playoff picture.

The Chargers have been the better team against the spread this season, going 5-2-1 ATS compared to Denver’s 4-4 record. The Chargers are a perfect 3-0 ATS at home while Denver is just 1-2 ATS in road games. Denver is just 5-9-4 ATS in its last 18 games against the Chargers.

J. D. Martinez Youth Jersey Despite the high total, the over could be a solid bet. Points have come in bunches between the two teams recently, with the over hitting in four of the last five contests.

Jimmy Garoppolo says ‘Peace out Boston’ — or does he? His agent claims hack

Hold the fond farewells for Jimmy Garoppolo. That since-deleted early-morning Instagram post that appeared (key word there) to confirm his departure from the New England Patriots reportedly was a hoax.

Authentic Mens Loui Eriksson Jersey According to his agent, Garoppolo’s social media account was hacked.

Ortega has not been charged in the case and has not commented. An FBI spokeswoman declined to comment on the investigation.

It would be a problem, Evans joked. I mean, it still is a problem for me to get where I want, but the athleticism he has and the way he gets up off the ground. He’s got quick bounce. He’s pretty good at it.

When Evans entered the league in 2009, he was a tweener possessing the skills of a point guard with the size of a two guard.

Panthers expected to sign LT Matt Kalil

It’s nice that he’ll get to play on the same line as his brother, Ryan, but the Panthers better hope the family reunion can get him to play better than he ever has since being drafted fourth overall by the Vikings in 2012.

A hip injury kept him sidelined for all but two games last year. He’s reportedly back to 100 percent.

Carolina is committed to reclamation projects for the left tackle spot. Michael Oher didn’t cut it after signing there in 2015. He still has two years left on his deal. Now, with Kalil, the Panthers are banking on an other first-round pick turning around his disappointing career.

Iowa State’s loss to Purdue marked the end of Monte Morris’ college career, which might be the most under-appreciated of any in recent memory.

Morris set the NCAA record for assist-to-turnover ratio in a season when he was a freshman, and then nearly broke it a year later. As a four-year starter for the Cyclones, he finished his college career playing in 142 games. He turned the ball over only 165 times. How ridiculous is that? Morris could have committed 59 straight turnovers without an assists in the NCAA tournament, and he still would have left college basketball as the sport’s all-time leader in career assist-to-turnover ratio.

Shine on, Monte. The college game will miss you.

Leicester now has three straight wins in the league, plus they’ve advanced to the Champions League quarterfinals.

Maybe Leicester’s owners just did what they had to. Or maybe you think that doesn’t matter, and no positive results justify Ranieri’s firing.

The Toffees have a pretty great stable of young talent that can be the core of a top-half team for a decade to come, even if they can’t hang on to Romelu Lukaku and Ross Barkley. But with those players, they’re a good team — at least the seventh-best in the league, and with a big gap back to eighth. Ronald Koeman is building something that Toffees should be proud of.18.

Iona¡¯s Jordan Washington crying after their loss vs. Oregon will break your heart

Iona fell behind 27 points to Oregon during the NCAA tournament. They tried their hardest to come back, led by Jordan Washington.

Washington had one heck of a first half with 14 points, before having a scare slipping on a wet floor. He came back in the second half, and finished the game with 22 points. As the final seconds were ticking down, the senior was visibly upset playing his final game:

This is an unfortunate part of March Madness, seeing the sadness that comes over players because of their passion for the game. Washington has no reason to hang his head after a great effort.

BGSU did have one weapon early on: 6¡¯7 punter Joseph Davidson. He averaged nearly 46 yards per kick for the season and offered few return opportunities. The result: a No. 8 ranking in punt efficiency.

The rest of the special teams unit was forgettable ¡ª decent returns, below average place-kicking and kickoffs ¡ª but in Davidson, the Falcons boast one of the best field position weapons in the conference. Well, as long as the offense is struggling. If BGSU starts scoring more, Davidson becomes less of an asset. But I think everyone would probably be okay with that.

Authentic Youth Robert Alford Jersey It¡¯s never easy to figure out what it means for a defense when it appears the weakness (in this case, pass coverage) could get a lot stronger while the relative strength (run defense) gets worse. But considering how poor this unit was for much of the year, we¡¯ll assume improvement, from a progression-to-the-mean standpoint, is more likely than regression.

The NBA MVP race is as exciting as it’s ever been

The NBA MVP race is as good as ever this year. You could give the award to any one of four players — James Harden, Russell Westbrook, Kawhi Leonard, or LeBron James — and each would be deserving.

Jared Jacobs matched up the audio perfectly to both Marcus Paige and Kris Jenkins’ shots from the final seconds of the tournament final, and this most certainly qualifies as art.

He used about 400 Lego figurines with taped-on jerseys, according to Yahoo!, to recreate the madness last year as a birthday gift to his 11-year-old daughter.

He captured it all using slow-motion animation and gave a little behind-the-scenes look:

March Madness is my favorite time of year. I can’t wait for everyone to see my next stop motion video. Here’s a sneak peak! Shout out to @guayaki for helping me stay awake while I work on these videos in the middle of the night.

Whoever wins the job will have the luxury of options. Howard is a tremendous runner (seven fumbles aside), and Southern Miss boasts a solid duo of senior backs. Ito Smith showed nice explosiveness in 2016, while the larger George Payne was a hair more efficient.

The backs will be running behind a line that does have to deal with makeover. Devin Farrior and Ty Pollard have combined for 40 career starts, but that’s it — the other five in the starting rotation last year are gone. JUCOs Jimmie Terry and Justus Satterfield will need to make an immediate impact, though there are some upperclassmen (seniors Jerry Harris and Tyler Stutzman, junior Hayden McMahan) in the mix.23
