                                      EAST RUTHERFORD, N. Cheap Nike Free Run Outlet .J. -- Janoris Jenkins is humble enough and smart enough not to call himself the best cornerback in the NFL.So let Los Angeles Rams coach Jeff Fisher speak for the former free agent whom the New York Giants signed in the offseason to a five-year, $62.5 million contract.In discussing Sundays game between the Giants (3-3) and Rams (3-3) in London, Fisher was glowing when asked about Jenkins, who played his first four seasons with Fisher in St. Louis.Fisher wanted Jenkins back with the Rams this season, but it seemed the team could not match the Giants offer, which included a $10 million signing bonus and a $28 million guarantee.He played really well for us. He overcame a couple of injury things, Fisher said. Im just saying to reiterate, but I think youd be hard pressed to find a corner in this league whos playing better than he is.When asked to man up and cover, hes a shutdown corner. When asked to match up with the top receivers, he does it, he plays both sides. When asked to be patient and play zone and play within the scheme, he does it. Im happy for him, but not happy for us.Jenkins has not only played well for the Giants, he has been indispensable because of injuries to first-round draft pick Eli Apple and Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie.Apple has been inactive in two of the past three games with hamstring and groin injuries, while Rodgers-Cromartie missed the Minnesota game with a groin injury and has gutted his way through the past two games against Green Bay and Baltimore.Jenkins has the Giants only two interceptions this season, and he played the shutdown role on Dez Bryant in the season-opening win against Dallas.I am just playing football and doing what I do, Jenkins said after practice Wednesday when asked about Fishers comments. That is a nice compliment, but I am just going to stay focused and continue to play football.Jenkins said he lets other people worry about where he ranks among cornerbacks.I think I have played good. I can play better, he said. Nothing major, but just keep improving every week.If Jenkins is asked to match up on Sunday, he will probably cover Kenny Britt. The former Rutgers receiver ranks fifth in the NFC with 492 yards receiving. He has 30 catches and two touchdowns.Kenny, he is physical, he is big, he is going to give you a lot of pushing and shoving, but we just have to go out there and play football, Jenkins said.Giants receiver Victor Cruz said Jenkins has a knack for understanding routes and playing the ball well.He understands the ball in the air, he really can play it while it is in the air, whether it is a breakup or an interception, he knows how to close that gap, Cruz said.He has that speed to close that gap and get to the football. I am happy that he is on our team, happy he is making plays and doing some really great things.Fisher remembers walking into a defensive meeting with the Rams and always seeing Jenkins in the front row.Hes a student, he studies, he competes, quietly, Fisher said. Hes got great ball skills and hes playing really well.---Online: AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and AP NFL Twitter feed: www.twitter.com/AP-NFL Wholesale Free Run Sale . The team also announced Tuesday that the Braves will wear a commemorative patch on the right sleeve during the season.

The Celtics closed out their first preseason under Stevens on Wednesday night with a 101-97 victory over the Brooklyn Nets, who rested a lot of their lineup including former Celtics Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce. BALTIMORE -- The Houston Astros still have their sights set on a postseason berth and can take another step toward that goal if they take the series against the Baltimore Orioles on Sunday at Camden Yards.After dropping the first game Thursday, Houston bounced back with a pair of convincing victories. While the Astros trail the first-place Texas Rangers by 9 1/2 games, they are within striking distance of a wild card berth 4 1/2 games behind Baltimore.The offense has been the key for both teams throughout the series with balls flying out of Camden Yards. The Orioles have hit 13 homers in the three games, while Houston has gone deep nine times.The only silver lining with their power is we kept it to solo homers by most part, or a couple of two-run homers, Astros manager A.J. Hinch said about the Orioles. Theres do doubt that these guys live and die by the home run, more so than any team in baseball. Keeping them in the ballpark is key.Left-hander Dallas Keuchel (7-12, 4.76 ERA) starts for the Astros on Sunday. Keuchel is having an uneven season and has lost three of his past four starts. In his previous outing against the St. Louis Cardinals, he allowed six runs on six hits in five innings in the 8-5 loss.Baltimore counters with Yovani Gallardo (4-4, 5.18). He has struggled to go deep into games this season, competing seven innings only once in 16 starts. On Tuesday, Gallardo gave up three runs on four hits and five walkks in five innings against the Boston Red Sox. Cheap Free Run China. He didnt get a decision in the 5-3 loss.Gallardo was hit in the right elbow on a liner by Dustin Pedroia and there were some initial concerns over whether he would be able to make the next start. But Gallardo said he suffered just a bruise and shrugged off the injury.Its all right, he said. He got me pretty good, but Ill be all right.The Orioles will likely be without four-time All-Star catcher Matt Wieters, who was placed on paternity leave Saturday. He has the option of being away for a maximum of three days.In a corresponding move, catcher Francisco Pena was recalled from Triple-A Norfolk. In nine games with Baltimore earlier this season, Pena went 7-for-33.Baltimore manager Buck Showalter is hopeful his team can put the past two losses behind them and salvage a split in the four-game series.Nobody clicks on all phases every night, Showalter said. One day you hoping your offense is enough to cover some deficiency starting, then its something to cover deficiencies in the bullpen maybe you dont catch the ball well that night. ... I can come up with three or four things they didnt do well. but they did something to overcome them. its pretty tough to cover that many runs the last two nights. Its pretty obvious we need to pitch better.
