ALAMEDA Womens Derek Carr Jersey , Calif. (AP) The Oakland Raiders placed defensive tackle Justin Ellis on season-ending injured reserve with a knee injury Saturday and cut two undrafted players who had shined in the preseason as they reduced their roster to the 53-player limit.Ellis had been dealing with the injury for much of camp and never was able to get healthy enough for coach Jon Gruden to believe he could contribute this season on the defense.Ellis, a fourth-round pick in 2014, received a three-year, $13.5 million contract extension last offseason after playing 60 games his first four years as an effective run stuffer in the middle.Ellis then hurt his foot in the season opener last year and played just six games and now will miss the entire 2019 season after the Raiders decided not to keep him on the initial roster, which would have allowed him to return after at least eight weeks.I think with Coach, the big thing is availability, general manager Mike Mayock said. Since hes been here, Justins been hurt to no fault of his own I mean its a legitimate football injury. Its been really hard to evaluate him because of that. I think, again, as we go ahead philosophically with younger, more athletic, consistent, available players Antonio Brown Raiders Jersey , we felt like that was a roster spot we could use in a different direction.Undrafted rookie defensive tackle Anthony Rush appeared to have a chance to fill that role with a strong preseason that included making four tackles at or behind the line of scrimmage in his first game.But the Raiders instead went with more experience at the position with recently signed Corey Liuget, Johnathan Hankins and second-year players Maurice Hurst and P.J. Hall getting the nod.At the end of the day, hes very raw, Mayock said of Rush. Hes a guy that I think has a future in the league, but for us today, it was not his day.Receiver Keelan Doss, another undrafted rookie who shined at times in the preseason, also was cut as the Raiders went with more veterans such as JJ Nelson and Ryan Grant at the position.The move to shut down Ellis for the season leaves just two players on the roster from the 2012-15 draft classes with starting quarterback Derek Carr and guard Gabe Jackson, who will miss the first month with a knee injury.The Raiders did keep four undrafted free agents with punter A.J. Cole, offensive lineman Andre James, fullback Alec Ingold and cornerback Keisean Nixon all making the roster. Oakland had kept more than two undrafted rookies on the initial roster just once in the past seven seasons with four also making it in 2014.Among the other notable cuts were last years starting fullback Keith Smith, 2018 fourth-round cornerback Nick Nelson and special teams standout linebacker Kyle Wilber.The other players cut on Saturday were receivers Marcell Ateman, Rico Gafford Womens Antonio Brown Jersey , Keon Hatcher and DeMornay Pierson-El; linebackers Jason Cabinda, TeVon Coney and Koa Farmer; offensive linemen Lester Cotton Sr., Denver Kirkland, Tyler Roemer and Justin Murray; defensive lineman Quinton Bell; running back James Butler; and cornerback Dylan Mabin.Tight end Paul Butler was waived with an injury designation and guard Richie Incognito and cornerback Nevin Lawson were placed on the suspended list.More moves could be coming in the next few days as Oakland kept 11 defensive backs and only four linebackers on the roster. on the roster who werent there to start last season as part of an overhaul after a 4-12 record last year.I think were excited because we kind of feel like what we hoped to accomplish eight months ago when Jon and I sat down together and talked about it was to get younger, more athletic and the right kind of mentality in this building, Mayock said. We think weve been pretty consistent with that and were real excited about the guys on this roster. Oakland Raiders running back Marshawn Lynch will miss at least a month because of a groin injury.A person familiar with the injury said Friday that an MRI this week determined the severity of the injury. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the team has not made any announcement. NFL Network first reported the diagnosis.Lynch was hurt last week in Oakland's 27-3 loss to Seattle in London. The Raiders (1-5) are off this week and will play again on Oct. 28 at home against Indianapolis. Oakland could choose to place Lynch on injured reserve, which would require him to miss at least eight weeks.The 32-year-old Lynch has been one of the few bright spots for the Raiders this season. He ranks 12th in the league with 376 yards rushing, averaging 4.2 yards per carry with three touchdowns. Lynch ranks fourth in the NFL in rushing since Week 12 last season.Lynch's best game came in Oakland's only win when he ran for 130 yards last month against Cleveland when he showed off the power that earned him the nickname Beast Mode. Lynch came out of retirement last season in order to join the hometown Raiders before they move to Las Vegas in 2020. He is in the final year of his contract.With Lynch sidelined, the struggling Raiders will likely turn to Doug Martin and Jalen Richard to carry the bulk of the load at running back. Martin was signed to be the main backup to Lynch this season but has been unproductive so far. He has 27 carries for 99 yards and four catches for 5 yards this season. He is averaging just 3.0 yards per carry since the start of the 2016 season.Richard is more of a receiving back, ranking second on the team with 31 catches for 253 yards. Richard has carried the ball 11 times for 32 yards this year and has never had more than nine carries in a game in his three seasons in the NFL.The only other halfback on the roster is DeAndre Washington, who injured his knee in training camp and has not been active yet despite being healthy the past few weeks. Washington has rushed for 620 yards on 144 carries in two seasons in the NFL. His most productive game came as a rookie in 2016 when he ran for 99 yards and a TD on 12 carries against the Colts on Christmas Eve.

COSTA MESA Womens Noah Fant Jersey , Calif. (AP) Anthony Lynn was still seething a day after the Los Angeles Chargers played the worst game of his three-year tenure to fall back under .500.The Chargers 20-13 loss to the Denver Broncos on Sunday resembled a bad flashback to the Mike McCoy era of 2013-16, when giving up big plays on defense, turnovers and an offense that couldnt find the end zone were the norm.For a team that had Super Bowl aspirations at the beginning of the season, Los Angeles did not expect to be 2-3 and in third place in the AFC West after five weeks.A lot of us had one of those games. We did not play at our best, Lynn said on Monday. To go out, have a divisional game at your place and not win is frustrating. We have what it takes. It is a matter of being on the right track and getting consistent.The one area they need to fix immediately is eliminating turnovers in the red zone. The Chargers have five this season, including two against the Broncos. Austin Ekeler was stopped at the 1 and fumbled out of the end zone on the final play of the first half and Philip Rivers threw an interception in the end zone after Kyzir White intercepted Joe Flacco and returned it to the Denver 5.Rivers had been more careful with the football in 2017 and 18, but he has regressed back to the final years of the McCoy era where he is making riskier throws. Sunday ended a 55-game streak where Rivers directed a touchdown drive and was only the ninth time in 224 regular and postseason starts that the offense did not reach the end zone.The only saving grace from Sunday is that Kansas City also lost, which keeps the Chargers two games behind in the AFC West instead of three.We have been in this boat a lot. We obviously dont want to be, but we have been, Rivers said. We never want to look at the big picture too much Womens Dre'Mont Jones Jersey , but division games are important as the year goes. With our expectations that were going to bounce back and get on a roll at some point, you look back and these are the ones that can hurt you.WHATS WORKINGSpecial teams continue to provide big plays. On Sunday it was the punt return unit when Desmond King had a 68-yard return for a touchdown during the third quarter to put the Chargers on the scoreboard. The third-year cornerback is the eighth player in franchise history to run multiple punts for scores during his career.WHAT NEEDS HELPThe run defense allowed their second 100-yard rusher this season as Denvers Phillip Lindsay carved up the Chargers for 114 yards on 15 carries. The Chargers had allowed only 3.2 yards per carry over the past three games before Denver had 191 yards and averaged 6.0 yards per carry.STOCK UPEkeler continues to be one of Rivers most reliable targets. His 15 receptions set a franchise record for catches by a running back and are tied for the second most in the league since 1948. a running back has led the conference in catches through five weeks since Indianapolis Anthony Johnson in 1991. It is also the most running back catches through five games since San Franciscos Paul Hofer had 41 in 1980.STOCK DOWNSafety Rayshawn Jenkins continues to be a liability because of his struggles in tackling. He had two missed tackles against the Broncos, including one where Courtland Sutton slipped out of his grasp after a 25-yard reception and went 45 yards up the left sideline to give Denver a 14-0 lead.INJURIESCenter Mike Pouncey is the latest to join the injured list after he suffered a neck injury during the first half and did not return. If Pouncey is out, that is another huge blow to an offensive line that is already struggling without Russell Okung. The veteran left tackle is on the non-football injury list because of blood clots.KEY NUMBER32 Snaps played by running back Melvin Gordon out of the 70 plays the offense ran. Gordon, who had a 64-day holdout due to a contract dispute, had 38 scrimmage years (31 rushing, 7 receiving).We have to get him involved. Hes our starting running back, Lynn said on Monday. Hes lost a lot of time. He is going to get his game reps now. It wont take him long.NEXT STEPSLos Angeles is 1-2 at home but has a chance to bounce back this week against Pittsburgh (1-4). The Sunday night game could have Devlin Hodges quarterbacking the Steelers after Mason Rudolph was knocked out with a concussion during an overtime loss to Baltimore. Drew Lock will be using the VR for the time being. And that time could be at least eight weeks if he starts on IR.Via Jeff Legwold of ESPN.com, Broncos coach Vic Fangio said it was possible his rookie quarterback could start the season on injured reserve because of his severely sprained right thumb.Obviously because its his throwing hand and a thumb, thats a pretty serious injury for a quarterback Womens Bradley Chubb Jersey , Fangio said. It will be some time before we know exactly where hes at and how much time he would miss.Asked specifically about the possibility of starting the season on IR (which would require keeping him on the 53-man roster through final cuts), Fangio replied: Yeah, it could be if we dont think he can play for a while. The bad thing about it is because of the injury he cant do much.Lock wont play or practice for the rest of the preseason, and will only do conditioning and virtual reality work, after he suffered the injury in Mondays game. X-rays on Locks thumb were negative, but its clearly a significant problem for him.[Im] trusting the [training] staff in there to get me back as soon as possible, Lock said. Whenever that is, well decide on whenever Im 100 percent ready to go.With the second-rounder on the sidelines, Kevin Hogan and Brett Rypien will compete for backup duties behind Joe Flacco.

Hogs Haven takes a look at 2019 NFL Draft prospects that could contribute to the Redskins"Davante Davis Wes Martin Jersey , CBSchool: Texas | Conference: BIG 12College Experience: Senior | Age: 22?Height / Weight: 6-2 / 202 lbsProjected Draft Status: 5th or 6th RoundNFL Comparison: James BradberryCollege StatisticsPlayerFlorida who chose Texas over his hometown Hurricanes, Florida State, Ohio State, Alabama, Clemson, and a lot of other top programs because of the relationship he built up with former head coach Charlie Strong. Davis got playing time early in his career and meshed with defensive backs coach Chris Vaughn. Vaughn left Texas after he was accused of violating several NCAA rules include those relating creating fraudulent SAT and ACT scores to satisfy academic standards for recruits while he was a coach at Ole Miss. After Vaughn left a new defensive backs coach took over and didnt give Davis much playing time in his sophomore season. Texas cleaned house with their coaching staff the following season and the same thing happened. Davis a top recruit wasnt being used as he anticipated and his confidence suffered. Unfortunately he did not get back on track until this past season. This past season was his first as a starter and he finally flashed the skills that made him a top recruit in the first place. Texas defensive coordinator Todd Orlando praised Davis for his growth and polish in his game. Davis may have been a late bloomer in college due to unfortunate circumstances but he has plenty of upside left to keep improving in the right system and situation. StrengthsExcellent size, good athleticism and explosion for position.Tough, physical player who has no problem coming in and tackling in run support. Fights through blocks and wraps up well. Has decent fluidity and smoothness with his backpedal and bail technique. Looks a lot better as a zone defender than a man coverage guy. Keeping plays in front of him he can use his recognition of routes to close in coverage quickly. Uses his length and physicality to knock receivers off their routes and disrupt passes. Shows decent ball skills. Finished his college career on a high note and has the potential to play either corner or safety.WeaknessesDoesnt have the acceleration to stick with speedy receivers downfield. Hes a long strider but not very quick and when guys go past him he can panic and interfere. Takes the cheese way too much in man coverage and needs to play the receiver more and remained disciplines and not give away too much. Agility is limited for the position and a position switch may be in order. Lost confidence and play declined in college. What is his mental toughness now?Lets see his work:More Davante Davis videosHow He Would Fit On The RedskinsWhile every position in football requires confidence cornerback arguably is at the top of the list of positions where this is most important. Corners have to have the ability to take things one play at a time and be able to quickly put bad plays behind them and move forward on the field. Due to lots of instability with his coaching staff at Texas and a few bad experiences on the field he went through a rut in college. What is great about Davis, and what should inspire a team to take a chance on him is that he overcame this portion of his career and closed out strong. He needs a lot of work technique wise but I think he has some promise as a late round boundary corner playing zone. Assuming the Redskins will still be a zone heavy team I think there is definitely a place for Davis to compete with Adonis Alexander at the back of the roster. Furthermore Davis may bring greater value because of his tackling ability and physical style of play which could be used on special teams. I think the teams safety depth is decent but if they ever felt the need to convert him they could try that out too. Davis needs to get on the field in the pros one way or another to keep building on the momentum hes gained. If he can learn to play disciplined while taking his chances at the right time along with a few other nuances he could be a nice value for a late round pick. The Porkcast Crew chats about the deal to bring a new quarterback to D.C. and what it means for the Redskins in 2019 and beyond."WhiteFanposts Fanshots Sections Looks Like Someone Has A Sixpack Of The MondaysDaily SlopRedskins RecapsESTShareTweetShareShareHogs Night: A Porkcast - Making The Case For KeenumGeoff Burke-USA TODAY SportsThe Porkcast crew was blessed with some great timing Womens Bryce Love Jersey , just as we were set to record our weekly shit-and-chat, the Redskins made a move to answer the biggest question of this offseason and made a trade with the Denver Broncos for quarterback Case Keenum. We promptly fired up the podcast box and dug in on our initial thoughts on the deal, and much to everyones surprise, they were overwhelmingly positive. We discuss how the trade allows the Redskins to tip-toe the sidelines of the salary cap in a forward-facing move that clears the way for Alex Smiths return, should his recovery allow him to come back from serious injury, AND now how the Redskins can look forward to the 2020 Draft as being the potential time to land their next quarterback of the future.Much to everyones surprise, Keenums name was not one of our options to Swipe Right on in our discussion a few weeks ago, and we discuss how the move compares with other names that have bubbled to the media forefront of late in Joe Flacco, Ryan Tannehill, and of course Josh Rosen.In addition https://www.theredskinslockerroom.com/authe...mclaurin-jersey , we lick our chops a little bit at the prospect of the story line this will unravel: that the new Redskins signal-caller takes the locker of Kirk Cousins, who replaced him following the Minneapolis Miracle season that led them to the NFC championship game. Its tantalizing to think that the role-reversal was at a $81 million difference between the two players.Finally, we ponder what does this mean for the other questions marks on the offensive side of the football. While there are still some unknowns regarding who will line up at wide receiver this year, we now know that there is some stability at the quarterback. Could this make the Redskins a more favorable destination for pass-catchers to sign, be it Antonio Brown or otherwise.If you havent already be sure to subscribe to the Hogs Haven Podcast network on Apple Podcasts, Google Play, Stitcher, and Spotify.

PITTSBURGH (AP) Kameron Kelly walked into a hotel lobby in San Diego on the first Sunday night in February Jerome Bettis Jersey , plopped down in a chair and spent the next four hours transfixed. Patriots to a sixth Super Bowl title. One thought kept running through Kellys mind over and over again.The whole time Im watching the game Im like, I can do this, I want to do this,' Kelly said.Seven months, a couple thousand miles and one bankruptcy filing by the Alliance of American Football later, the first-year Pittsburgh Steelers safety will get his chance. With starting free safety Sean Davis nursing an ankle injury, Kelly could run out with the starters for Sunday nights season opener in New England.Maybe its fitting. The one thing the Steelers have stressed the entire offseason, creating more turnovers on a defense that struggled to get them during a wildly uneven 2018, is the one thing that fueled Kellys sprint up the depth chart.Even from OTAs, he jumped out from the beginning, linebacker Mark Barron said. He kept getting his hands on the ball. He was round the football a lot. Like a lot a lot. Thats what you want from a safety, ball awareness and being around the ball.Thats something Pittsburgh didnt do nearly enough last season. While the Steelers led the NFL in sacks for a second straight year, all that disruption in the backfield failed to translate into turnovers. Pittsburgh finished with just 15 takeaways in 2018. Only Detroit and San Francisco had fewer. The Steelers produced multiple turnovers just twice while going 9-6-1. Five times they didnt manage to take the ball away even once.Pittsburgh is well aware those numbers need to change if the Steelers are to keep pace in what figures to be a highly competitive AFC North.General manager Kevin Colbert began addressing the problem from almost the moment the new league year began in March. Pittsburgh splurged in free agency, signing cornerback Steven Nelson and his four interceptions two more than any Steelers defensive back had last season to a three-year deal. Barron James Conner Jersey , a hybrid who can serve as either a linebacker or a third safety, agreed to a two-year contract . The team traded up in the first round to grab inside linebacker Devin Bush with the 10th overall pick, won over by Bushs speed and inherent aggressiveness.The coaching staff put an emphasis on creating an environment more conducive to turnovers during camp.Coach Tomlin stays on us, making sure that were trying to pick the ball off, strip it, Kelly said. Any time its an incomplete pass, were scooping the ball up like its a fumble. Defensive players, we dont get too much work. We do get work with the ball, but not like an offensive player does. We do have to go the extra mile and every single snap make sure were ball searching.When the ball gets in a defenders hands during practice, he immediately starts racing the other way, often continuing toward the end zone long after the whistle has blown. Sure, it doesnt count. But it does create a habit the Steelers hope will become second nature.Its just a matter of going out there and working, Barron said. Theres not one specific drill for it, but we do talk about it in practice. Its like https://www.thesteelerslockerroom.com/authe...-edmunds-jersey , When youre doing this, try to get the ball out, keep that consciousness. Thats how itll be in a game. You wont be working a drill. Youll be playing football, so we try to implement it in our actual play in practice.There were early signs of progress during the preseason. Pittsburgh finished with a plus-2 turnover differential across four exhibition games, not bad considering backup quarterbacks Mason Rudolph, Josh Dobbs and Devlin Hodges combined to throw four picks. It means the defense from the starters to guys long since gone from the 53-man roster forced opponents to put the ball on the ground frequently.Weve got to affect the game when we can, whether its tipped balls on quick passes or just not letting them be able to step up, defensive tackle Cameron Heyward said.There might not be a better litmus test than the one awaiting in New England. Pittsburgh is 0-5 when facing Brady on the road and the Steelers next interception of Brady in Foxborough will be its first. Ever.Heyward is well aware of the numbers. Yet hes encouraged by what hes seen over the spring and summer. Still, he understands doing it in practice is one thing. Doing it when the only player in NFL history with six Super Bowl rings is standing in the pocket is quite another.Well see, he said. We havent used all our Jedi mind tricks yet. Now officially a member of the Jets, running back Le'Veon Bell has no regrets about skipping the entire 2018 season in lieu of playing under the franchise tag for a second time. Of course, hed never admit to having regrets if he did.The decision I made, Bell told reporters, I dont regret anything that happened. Who can I say if I played on a franchise tag Womens Terrell Edmunds Jersey , if I do get hurt, do I sit here with the New York Jets with a beautiful deal?Hes right, even if some are arguing that he should have taken the long-term deal that the Steelers offered last year one that carried at least $5 million less in fully-guaranteed money.Once it was clear hed be hitting the open market, Bell said that his next destination was the Jets all along.In all reality, the Jets were the team . . . that I wanted to go, Bell said, adding that he grew up a Jets fans. Once the numbers made sense, it wasnt hard for me. . . . Im happy where I stand.Hes stands in the shoes of a guy who last played football in January 2018.The fact that I took last year off, it sucked having to watch football, but at the same time in December and January it was the best my body felt in my entire life, Bell said.And so the Jets are getting a player who is healthy and rested and presumably motivated to prove that those who are doubting his decisions and downplaying his skills are wrong. The Jets benefit from that, both in the form of having a contract that isnt quite what it could have been and a player who is determined to make the most of his second NFL stop.

The show debuts on ESPN+ in July, with ESPN and ABC airing special compilations. Like many positions on the Raiders last season, linebacker was in a constant state of flux. Tahir Whitehead was the big free agent acquisition and saw the field for nearly every defensive snap, but not at the same position, eventually playing primarily on the outside. The middle linebacker spot as well as the other outside linebacker position were unsettled with no one standing out.There are several very good options set to hit the market who could be the answer at one orboth of the open linebacker positions.C.J. Mosley, Ravens Remember when he got more rookie of the year votes than Khalil Mack? He was Mike Mayocks top inside linebacker prospect in 2014. He earned that distinction as a pro, making four Pro Bowls in five seasons while averaging 120 tackles and 7 passes defended per season. Hed fill the Raiders need at middle linebacker nicely.Anthony Barr, Vikings The former 9th overall pick was Mike Mayocks second ranked outside linebacker in his 2014 position ranks, just behind Mack. His 22 career passes defended while averaging 68 tackles per season has had him in four straight Pro Bowls as a 4-3 outside linebacker. It would be the LA natives return to California too.K.J. Wright, SeahawksWright would make a nice contingency plan in case they cant get their man in the draft. Wright will turn 30 in July, which means he has at least a couple good seasons left in him. Just like Moseley Antonio Brown Jersey White , Wright has averaged 120 tackles the past four seasons.Preston Brown, BengalsMayocks third ranked linebacker in 2014, Brown had massive production over his first four seasons in Buffalo, putting up 126 tackles per season, including 135 and 144 tackles in his last two seasons there in 2016-17. He signed a one-year deal in Cincinnati, hoping to earn a long term deal, but having his season upended by injuries and end after just 7 games.Avery Williamson, JetsThe former 5th round pick has missed just one game in his career, starting 75 games in five seasons with the Titans and Jets. Over the past four seasons, he has averaged 105 tackles, 3 sacks and 5 tackles for loss per season.Vincent Rey, BengalsGuenther has spoken highly of his former undrafted linebacker. He started 44 games with the Bengals from 2014 to 2017 while Guenther was Defensive Coordinator in Cincinnati. At the age of 31, he wouldnt be the answer, but hed be cheap and hed come with an extensive knowledge of Guenthers defensive scheme.Follow @LeviDamien
