Connor McDavid went around Pavel Datsyuk like he was standing still, blowing past a longtime NHL star for the kind of scoring chance a teenager shouldnt be able to produce with such ease. Nike Air Max Womens Sale Yellow .McDavid playing above his age is nothing new.Ive seen him ever since hes been about 14 years of age and hes been the best player against everybody two, three years older than him, Dallas Stars general manager Jim Nill said. Hes an elite player.McDavid is elite at 19 years old, and going into his second pro season with the Edmonton Oilers is already knocking on the door of being the best hockey player in the world. Sidney Crosby has that title right now, but uncertainty about the Pittsburgh Penguins captains third concussion in six years has put his run of dominance on hold.Oilers general manager Peter Chiarelli believes in short order fans will realize how stellar McDavid is. The Great One already sees it.I like Connor McDavid, Wayne Gretzky said. I think this kids going to be a tremendous superstar and a great player for our sport for a long time.McDavid follows agent Gretzky, Eric Lindros and Crosby as a generational talent who everyone knew had star potential. A broken collarbone limited him to 45 games in his rookie season, yet McDavid still had 16 goals and 32 assists. He was a finalist for the Calder Trophy despite missing half the season.Making moves like hes using a joystick, McDavid is earning every bit of the hype that has surrounded him since he had 209 points in 88 games during his 14- and 15-year-old midget season in Toronto. His peers are in awe at just how fast McDavid is able to make plays.You can see a guy who can make plays in full speed, said Stars forward Lauri Korpikoski, who spent last season in Edmonton. Hes got some wheels, he can fly and at the same time he sees the ice and is able to make plays and find guys at that full speed.The NHL is trending toward speed and skill, and McDavid exemplifies that. Scouts -- and his own agent and Hockey Hall of Fame defenseman Bobby Orr -- have said McDavid needs to build upper-body strength as he grows into his frame, and having a stronger lower body, as Crosby does, would push him even further.That will come in time. Hockey lifers see all the right ingredients for greatness in McDavid, who is part of an exciting wave of young players that includes 2016 top picks Auston Matthews of the Toronto Maple Leafs and Patrik Laine of the Winnipeg Jets, 2015 No. 2 pick Jack Eichel of the Buffalo Sabres and 2014 No. 1 pick Aaron Ekblad of the Panthers.The future of the sport is bright because of all that talent, but McDavid stands out -- even to his peers.Hes a very special player, everybody knows who he is and what he can do, Matthews said. He thinks the game extremely well, and hes a fast player. ... He can do a lot of things at a pace that not many people can do.McDavid is progressing fast, too, and is still learning and adding more tools to his game. Faceoffs need work after he won just 41.2 percent of draws as a rookie, but whats most dangerous to the competition is that hes fine-tuning how and when to use his speed to take over.You can definitely use your speed to give yourself a little bit more space, McDavid said. Another thing that Ive had to learn is to slow down sometimes and not let yourself kind of fly through the hole or fly through an opportunity where you could get the puck. Theres definitely a need for speed and theres a time to be slow and kind of slow down for the puck and wait for it.McDavid hasnt had to wait for much: He was the no-doubt No. 1 pick when he was eligible, and the Oilers last week named him the youngest captain in NHL history. Unflappable as usual, McDavid called opening a new arena and being the face of a franchise the same pressure that Ive always dealt with before.This is nothing new, but the pressure will only expand with time.Hes going to continue to grow our game with his skill level, Nill said. He can play the game at such a high level, he plays the right way. Hes a very respectful man on and off the ice. I just think the ceiling is endless with him. Hes going to be the face of our game for many, many years.---Follow Stephen Whyno on Twitter at http://www.twitter.com/SWhyno Nike Air Max Womens Sale Rose . General manager Jarmo Kekalainen told Aaron Portzline of The Columbus Dispatch on Friday that he wants to see Gaboriks contributions go beyond the scoresheet before considering a long-term deal for the soon-to-be unrestricted free agent.

Brett Kulak and Jackson Houck of the Vancouver Giants were each charged with assault causing bodily harm on Aug. 18, according to the B.C. court services. ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. -- Bills coach Rex Ryan challenged the NFL to consider ejecting players for blindside hits to the head such as the one by Dolphins receiver Jarvis Landry that leveled Buffalo safety Aaron Williams.Ryan called Landrys hit dirty and deliberate, while saying on-field officials made the right call in flagging the player for unnecessary roughness. Ryan then went further in questioning why the league doesnt adopt college footballs policy and have such hits immediately reviewed by replay officials to determine whether they merit an ejection.Yeah, it was totally unnecessary. Did he target? Did he launch? Yeah, he did all those. You can check every box you want, Ryan said Monday. If we really want to protect our players, then we need to look at things. And maybe in the future we will look at things differently.Ryan spoke a day after Williams was hurt and taken to the hospital during Buffalos 28-25 loss to the Dolphins . Williams was cleared to travel home with the Bills and attended team meetings Monday. His status, however, is uncertain for Sunday, when the Bills (4-3) host New England (6-1).Williams, who has a history of head and neck injuries, was hurt in the second quarter on a running play at Buffalos 11. Williams was tracking running back Jay Ajayi and moving to his right when he was blindsided by Landry, who led with his shoulder and caught Williams in the head and sent him to the turf. Williams squirmed in pain and remained on his back before slowly getting up and being led to the locker room.Following the game, Landry apologized for the block and wished he could take it back, and offered little defense when asked if the hit was dirty.Call it what you want, Landry said. Its football.On Monday, Dolphins coach Adam Gase acknowledged Landry needs to lower his target when blocking, but doesnt consider him to be a dirty player.For anybody to start thinking `dirty play, Ive been around the guy less than a year and I havent seen that from him, Gase said. We have to do a better job of coaching it and need him to do it right so we dont get that kind of situation.Dolphins offensive coordinator Clyde Christensen didnt think Landry was being, as he put it malicious.You love the effort, Christensen said. Weve just got to lowwer that target a foot. Nike Air Max Womens Sale Gold. We dont want to hit anyone in the head.Whats concerning is Williams history of head injuries.The sixth-year players career was in question after he sustained a severe neck injury last season. Williams was hurt while diving headfirst in an attempt to tackle Patriots receiver Julian Edelman in Week 2. He missed two weeks and then pulled himself from a game at Tennessee after experiencing numbness in his arms.Williams was placed on injured reserve and had neck surgery, during which doctors shaved two disks to alleviate nerve damage.In August, Williams also missed a portion of training camp after sustaining a concussion during a collision with receiver Dezmin Lewis.The Bills didnt make Williams available to the media Monday, but his father, Anthony Williams, expressed unhappiness with the hit on his Twitter account.Football play, yes. Dirty play, yes! wrote Anthony Williams, who serves as Texas director of player development/scouting for the All-American Bowl. No player is supposed to `launch themselves at an opposing players head or knee.As for other injuries, Ryan said running back LeSean McCoys status is uncertain after he aggravated an injury to his left hamstring in the third quarter.Receiver Marquise Goodwin is being evaluated for a concussion after he landed hard on the back of his head while attempting to make a catch.On the bright side, Ryan said defensive tackle Marcell Dareus (hamstring) has a chance to return to practice, while receiver Robert Woods (right foot) is also progressing.The focus on injuries overshadowed how poorly Buffalo played against Miami, and snapped a four-game winning streak. The Bills squandered a 17-6 third-quarter lead and allowed 256 yards rushing, including 212 by Ajayi.Im done with this one, Ryan said in attempting to put the performance in the past. Am I sick about it? Yeah, absolutely. Im a better coach than that. And a performance like that hasnt happened to me in a long, long time.---AP Sports Writer Steven Wine in Miami Gardens, Florida, contributed to this report.---AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and http://twitter.com/AP-NFL Wholesale China Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Wholesale Authentic Jerseys Nike NFL Jerseys China Wholesale Nike Basketball Jerseys Hockey Jerseys China Supply Baseball Jerseys Football Jerseys Sale Authentic College Jerseys MLB Jerseys China Stitched Soccer Jerseys Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap Nike Jerseys ' ' '

NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- No matter how much the Indianapolis Colts are hurting or struggling, they can always count on beating the Tennessee Titans.Especially with Andrew Luck.Luck threw a 7-yard touchdown pass to Jack Doyle with 1:55 left to put Indianapolis ahead to stay, and the Colts rallied to beat the Titans 34-26 Sunday for their 10th straight win against their AFC South rival.The Colts (3-4) came in having lost two of three, including blowing a 14-point lead in an overtime loss last week at Houston. But Luck improved to 8-0 against the Titans with yet another comeback win. He finished with 353 yards passing and three TDs, the last after Tennessee went up 23-20.The Titans (3-4) saw their two-game winning streak end.

The Spirit have made it to the semifinals in the past three seasons, but have never played for the NWSL title.The Red Stars were coming off a 3-1 victory over the Spirit in the regular-season finale last week. The victory earned Chicago the No. 3 seed in the playoffs. Washingtons loss paved the way for the Thorns to win the NWSL Shield for the team with the best regular-season record.Krieger, captain of the Spirit, was part of the U.S. national team that played in the Rio Olympics this summer.

CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton officially has been ruled out for Monday nights NFC South game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers with a concussion.Derek Anderson will make his third start for Carolina (1-3) since joining the team in 2011. He was 2-0 in his other two starts, both against the Buccaneers (1-3) in 2014 when Newton was injured.Were going to do what we do, play who we play, Carolina coach Ron Rivera said after Saturdays practice that was moved inside to the Charlotte Convention Center because of heavy rain and wind from Hurricane Matthew.Weve done this before. Its that next man up mentality. Weve done it before.The Panthers also will be without starting left tackle Michael Oher (concussion), running back Jonathan Stewart (hamstring), cornerback James Bradberry (toe) and backup defensive tackle Vernon Butler (ankle).Rivera had no update on Newtons status in the concussion protocol other than hes progressing. He said there is no way to predict whether Newton will be available for next weeks game at New Orleans.Until I see him on the field, I dont really know, Rivera said. A lot of the stuff he did today he did with the trainers and the doctors, which is good. Hopefully, the next step will progress and well go on.Rivera said whether or not Newton is on the sideline on Monday night is up to the doctors and whether he can handle the excitement.Asked how Newton is handling not being able to play, remembering how tough the quarterback took it when he was held out of the 2014 opener at Tampa Bay with fractured ribs, Rivera said hes antsy.He cant help himself, he added. Thats the part of the thing that youve got to get him to, calm down, get him to relax. He cant help himself.Newton suffered the concussion in the fourth quarter of Sundays 48-33 loss at Atlanta when linebacker Deion Jones delivered a legal helmet-to-helmet hitt as the NFL MVP approached the goal line on a two-point conversion run. Chaussure Adidas Pas Cher Chine. Anderson finished the game, completing 17 of 23 pass attempts for 172 yards and two touchdowns.He completed 49 of 74 pass attempts for 501 yards and three touchdowns with no interceptions in his other two starts for the Panthers.He has a career record of 20-25 as a starter, most of those coming during his first four seasons with the Cleveland Browns. He was selected to the 2007 Pro Bowl after going 10-5 for the Browns.I dont know if theres a better backup situation in the league, Carolina tight end Greg Olsen said. Guys have a lot of respect for him. Hes been in the fire as the starter, as a backup in places hes been. Every time hes coming in hes delivered.Hes always there when weve needed him.One of Andersons strengths is a quick release. One of Carolinas weaknesses this season has been its inability to handle pressure, giving up 13 sacks, a rate of 3.25 per game that is tied for the second highest in the league.Newton sometimes holds onto the ball too long under pressure trying to make something happen.You know DA is going to get it out quick, quicker probably than Cam, wide receiver Kelvin Benjamin said earlier this week. Were going to have to be fast on our routes.Newton averages 2.57 seconds to release the ball, which ranks 26th in the NFL. That number is a slight improvement from last seasons 2.61 average for Newton, but still higher than the league average of 2.46 seconds.I think he takes what he can get when he plays, Rivera said of Anderson. Unlike Cam, who is going to stand tall in there and maybe skip an opportunity and work something downfield, Derek is going to be quick to pull the trigger and make a quick decision and go forward.

SPA-FRANCORCHAMPS, Belgium -- Max Verstappen has continued defending his driving at the Belgian Grand Prix, saying Kimi Raikkonen and Sebastian Vettel should be ashamed for blaming him for their Turn 1 collision. Supreme x Nike Air Max 98 .Starting from a career-best second, a slow getaway saw Verstappen drop behind both Ferrari drivers off the line. He then cut inside of Raikkonen on the short run down to La Source, with the Finnish driver also contending with Ferrari teammate Vettel on the outside.As he turned in Vettel made contact with Raikkonen on the outside, before Raikkonen made contact with Verstappen -- forcing all three men to pit at the end of the first lap and dropping them out of contention. Both drivers blamed Verstappen for the incident and also questioned his antics later in the race, which saw him force the Ferraris wide at Les Combes in separate incidents.However, Verstappen is adamant two of the grids most experienced and decorated drivers should know better than to lay all the blame at his feet.I think they should be ashamed to cause a crash like that with their amount of experience and then complain about me, Verstappen told Dutch press after the race. Then they dont have to make a drama about what happened afterwards. They have to understand Im not happy with them screwing up my entire race.Verstappen thinks the blame should be given to Vettel for turning in so early on the outside.?There was room for three cars. When I got alongside Kimi, he started squeezing me. If Vettel hadnt turned in and left one more metre of room, we would have all gotten through. On the video you can clearly see when Vettel turns in, he drives into Raikkonen. And then Kimis car bumps into mine.As for the incidents later in the race at Les Combes, Verstappen admits he was taking out his frustration on both Ferrari drivers for ruining a golden opportunity to challenge Nico Rosberg for a second career victory.If they screw up my race, Im not going to make it easy for them. I think they should understand that.Im not going to say: come on through. But all that happened after Turn 1. If Turn 1 hadnt happened, I wouldnt have been so aggressive and pushed Raikkonen out like that. Air Max 98 Supreme Red . U.S. District Judge Lorna G.

Cheap Air Jordan Australia For Sale .There are bigger issues than pot, Foster said.In fact, Foster is urging players to save money now in preparation for a lockout with the NFL over a collective bargaining agreement that will expire after the 2020 season.He said he is disenchanted by several issues with the drug policy, including the image hits NFL players face that players from other sports leagues dont and an appeal process that is often handled by a sole arbitrator, resulting in varied rulings. Bells appeal reduced his suspension from four to three games last week.But insurance, post-career care and revenue are more pressing, which means the players must be willing to sit out games in 2021, Foster said.Hit them in the pocket. That way, money always talks, Foster said. For us to do that, we have to save on our end. We cant be just blowing money and not realize whats coming, especially with guys coming into the league now.In 2011, the Steelers were the only team to vote against the proposed CBA that eventually passed before the season.Foster said players around the league must be more prepared after many faced too much financial debt to potentially miss games nearly six years ago.Its coming. Theyve hired certain people on their legal team, the NFL has, and we have to be the type of players and union thats not borrowing money from banks and stuff like that to survive a lockout, a strike, Foster said. That cant happen this time around. We have to be smarter this time around because there are a lot of things were going to be fighting for and a lot of things they are going to want and were going to want, too.Drug testing has affected the Steelers on-field product. Wide receiver Martavis Bryant is suspended for the season for multiple failed or missed tests, and Bell had to miss up to three tests to earn a three-game ban (reduced from four games upon appeal).Players felt in the dark about Bells looming suspension over the past month. Quarterback Ben Roethlisberger said we dont always know whats going on with the process, and the NFL often does things that none of us have answers for.The way Foster sees it, other sports leagues keep these player issues in-house, but NFL players are all over ESPN, Fox, the whole nine when one fails a test.Every situation has been different. Not one person has had the same penalty, Foster said about drug testing suspensions and appeals. Its always how the person is feeling whos handing down the execution. It needs to be refined. It cant just go through one person. Discount Air Jordan Australia Online .com) - Rafael Nadal, Andy Murray and Roger Federer were easy first-round winners Tuesday at the Australian Open.

BROOKLYN, Mich. -- Chip Ganassi doesnt have to think for long to know the answer to the question: When was the last time he had two cars in the Chase for the Sprint Cup?Its been never, Ganassi said.After Kyle Larsons victory Sunday in the Pure Michigan 400 at Michigan International Speedway, Ganassi has that chance.Larson is one of 12 drivers with victories this year locked into the 16-driver Chase with races left at Darlington and Richmond before the field is set.Chris Buescher has a win but isnt locked in yet because he is just seven points ahead of David Ragan for 30th in the standings. A driver with a win must finish in the top 30 in points to earn a spot.Assuming Buescher can remain in the top 30, that leaves three spots available to winless drivers who are the best in points. Chase Elliott is the best, six points ahead of Austin Dillon and six more ahead of Ganassi driver Jamie McMurray.McMurray has a 15-point lead on Ryan Newman, the first driver on the outside looking in. If Buescher falls out of the top 30, Newman would be next in line with a 37-point lead on Kasey Kahne for the final spot. Of course, there could be fewer than three winless drivers in the Chase if a winless driver wins at Darlington or Richmond.[Getting two in] was the goal at the beginning of the season, Ganassi said. We still have some work to do. We got Jamie in [at this point], but just by the skin of his teeth. Weve got to work on that with two [races] to go now.Thats what we do. Thats what we try to do every day.McMurray finished eighth at Michigan. It was the fifth top-10 finish for him in the past seven races.You just have to get the most points you can and try to win, McMurray said.While Larson is gearing up for his first Chase, McMurray is looking to compete in his second playoff, having qualified for it through points for the first time last year.From where we started our year to where our cars are now, weve made a lot of progress, McMurray said. Props to those guys. ... Weve just got to work hard to get the best finishes we can the next two weeks and we both can get into the Chase.Xfinity Series: Michael McDowell gets that first winMichael McDowell had competed in 297 national series events, and he got his first win Saturday. Having started his career as a road course racer, McDowell has fought the urge to go back to full-time road racing to concentrate on a Sprint Cup career.He had opportunities driving for Joe Gibbs Racing to potentially get a win in the past, but he wasnt able to capitalize. The win Saturday at Road America came while driving for Richard Childress Racing.Its been a long road, McDowell said. It definitely is a check the box [moment] -- this is what I came into the sport to ddo. Wholesale Air Jordan Australia Free Shipping. There have been a lot of road racers and have come and won on the road courses but really struggle on the ovals.I didnt want to become a NASCAR road race ringer. I wanted to become a NASCAR driver. To do that and to be here still and to be competitive on the ovals and to win on a road course is really awesome.McDowell is the primary Cup driver for RCR affiliate Leavine Family Racing, the team Childress grandson Ty Dillon runs select races for during the year.It means a tremendous amount [to me], McDowell said. Ive been so close here at Road America for a few years. To be able to finally finish it off and close it off was huge.Starting on the pole in 2011 and second in 2012, McDowell led a combined 34 laps at the track and felt he saw some chances to win slip away. Hes had three runner-up finishes in his Xfinity career, as well as a pair of thirds.Its hard to watch replays or watch videos. ... Now, Ill be able to go back and watch this, and its going to be awesome, McDowell said.RCR has won the past three races at Road America with three different drivers -- Brendan Gaughan, Paul Menard and McDowell.Camping World Truck Series: Brett Moffitt arrivesBrett Moffitt won the 2015 Sprint Cup rookie title and had little to show for it at the start of 2016, a year he started on the couch with no ride thanks to Michael Waltrip Racing shutting down after last season.Competing in just his fourth race of the year and sixth Trucks event of his career, Moffitt earned his first career national series win Saturday at Michigan thanks to his last-lap pass of Red Horse Racing teammate Timothy Peters for the lead.Moffitt finished second a week earlier to Ben Kennedy, who had started the year driving the Red Horse Racing No. 11 Toyota. Kennedy went to GMS Racing after the third race of the year, and the organization has used a variety of drivers in the seat.Winning is awesome, no matter what the circumstance is, Moffitt said. Last week finishing second was really frustrating for me because I knew I had a short timetable to get the job done.The 24-year-old Moffitt has been in the truck for three races in place of Matt Tifft, who is out after having brain surgery for a tumor earlier this summer. This race was an open one on the No. 11 schedule.Moffitt only has one race left on his current schedule, next Sunday in the No. 11 truck at Canadian Tire Motorsports Park (Mosport).I knew everyone was impressed with the runs we were having and really happy, but for my sake, I needed to go out there and win. ... Hopefully some more doors open down the road, Moffitt said.

BARCELONA, Spain -- Seville and the Spanish language have been puzzling French forward Wissam Ben Yedder. Chaussure Vans Old Skool Pas Cher .On the football pitch, though, hes no longer confused.Ben Yedder proved hes got his groove back with a pair of goals -- the second in stoppage time -- to snatch a 2-1 win for Sevilla over a tough Alaves side at Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan Stadium on Saturday.The victory pulled Sevilla provisionally level with Real Madrid on points at the top of the Spanish league, and underlined for the second time this week the worth of Ben Yedders offseason signing. On Tuesday, the former Toulouse standout also scored in a 1-0 victory over Lyon in the Champions League.Im very happy for (Ben Yedder), coach Jorge Sampaoli said. He was having difficulties adapting to Seville, to the language, his teammates, understanding my orders, our system, many things. But in these two games he has shown why he is at Sevilla.His first goal came in the 74th when substitute Ganso passed superbly to set him up. Ganso had his back to the goal and was falling forward from a collision, but still managed to flick his left boot back and send a perfect assist for Ben Yedder to fire home.After Alaves defender Victor Laguardia scrambled in the equalizer from a corner kick in the 84th, Ben Yedders winner went in off the side of his left heel, deflecting Victor Vitolo Machins low cross under goalkeeper Fernando Pacheco.Before the late flurry of goals, the match was marred by several leg injuries, with all the injured walking off the pitch when substituted.Alaves lost Kiko Femenia and Daniel Torres in the first half, while Sevilla lost forwards Samir Nasri and Luciano Vietto in a three-minute span with a half-hour to play. Referee Mateo Lahoz also had to be replaced late because of a calf problem.Madrid hosts Eibar on Sunday when Barcelona, which trails Madrid and Sevilla by a point, visits Celta Vigo.Ben Yedders second goal was one of three injury-time scores that swayed results across La Liga.DEPORTIVO LA CORUNA 2, SPORTING GIJON 1Former Liverpool midfielder Ryan Babel scored a scorching goal from outside the area in stoppage time to give Deporitvo La Coruna its first win in six rounds.Babel joined Deportivo two weeks ago on a free transfer. The Dutchman had most recently played for Al-Ain in the United Arab Emirates.Babel went on with just over 20 minutes to play and made his impact when he sent his right-footed strike streaking in off the post, dealing Sporting a fourth consecutive defeat.OSASUNA 2, LAS PALMAS 2Another stoppage-time goal completed Las Palmas fightback at Osasuna, denying the hosts an elusive first win of the season.David Garcia scored from a rebound off the upright after 90 minutes to take the point for the Canary Islands outfit.We deserved this point because we were the only team that should have won today, Garcia said. We carried the weight of the match throughout.Osasuna said coach Enrique Martin left the match in the first half because of an unspecified health issue.GRANADA 0, LEGANES 1Leganes continued its excellent debut in the top flight with a third win in seven rounds. This latest pushed Granada to the bottom of the standings.Leganes defender Alexander Szymanowski struck in the 76th with a left-footed shot from the edge of the area after Robert Ibanez sprung a counterattack.Granadas latest loss ruined the debut of its caretaker coach, Lluis Planaguma, who took over managing duties following the firing of Paco Jemez. Old Skool Pas Cher . -- Stanford squashed Oregons national championship hopes again, schooling the Ducks in power football. Vans Old Skool Pas Cher En Ligne . Perhaps Carroll was so prepared for a break because he believes there is very little the Seattle Seahawks need heading into the off-season. "I dont see anything that we need to add. We just have to get better," Carroll said. http://www.pascheroldskool.fr/ . The 26-year-old Ireland striker, who has four goals this season, has signed a three-and-a-half year contract with his new club.We assess the selection dilemmas facing Eddie Jones ahead of the autumn internationals against South Africa, Fiji, Argentina and Australia. Front rowEnglands front row for the autumn internationals look to be pretty set in stone. With Dylan Hartley continuing as captain, his place in the hooker role is as close to assured as possible, with Jamie George likely to continue as his deputy. Either side of him will be prop duo Dan Cole and Mako Vunipola. While Cole continues to be the cornerstone of the England pack, the Fiji game could give Jones an opportunity to hand a long-awaited debut to Harlequins Kyle Sinckler, who many champion as Coles successor. Mako Vunipola breaks away to score for Saracens against Scarlets On the loosehead side, Vunipola has been impressing at Saracens, where his often under-fire scrummaging game has shown improvements, while his work around the park has not let up. Looking to unseat him will be the returning Joe Marler, providing England with a healthy battle for jerseys.Second rowJoness hand has been somewhat forced in this area with injuries ruling out Saracens duo George Kruis and Maro Itoje.The men most likely to fill their places are Joe Launchbury and Courtney Lawes, no strangers to starting for their country. Joe Launchbury is expected to start in the opening test against South Africa Question marks remain over who will fill the space on the bench. Will England opt for the experienced head of Dave Attwood to come on if needed, or will Jones use this opportunity to blood young gun Charlie Ewels who has shone for Bath this season?Back rowThe biggest decision for Jones lies in the makeup of his back row. An area depleted by injuries to James Haskell, Jack Clifford, Sam Jones, Mike Williams and Maro Itoje, the big question of who will wear the No 7 shirt remains. Watch NOW TV Watch Sky Sports for just £6.99. No contract Chris Robshaw appears to be Joness choice at number six but has refused to rule out the possibility of the former captain filling in on the openside.Should Tom Wood find himself called upon, the Northampton man will be keen to prove a point, having had his work rate previously questioned by Jones, who described him as distinctly average. Eddie Jones faces a dilemma in the back row as James Haskell (middle) is ruled out through injury At No 8, England have Billy Vunipola, Ben Morgan and Nathan Hughes all battling it out for a spot, however, Jones has not ruled out the possibility of flexibility in his back row.Speaking at the squad announcement, Jones said: Billys not a six, hes aan eight. Vans Old Skool Sortie. I dont think weve got a jumper big enough at 6 to fit him!Ben Morgan and Nathan can definitely play six for us. So, as you can see weve got great competition with those three guys at eight. Were talking about an injury crisis but weve got those three guys at eight.At six weve got Chris Robshaw, Nathan Hughes, Ben Morgan and Tom Wood. At seven weve got Teimana Harrison, Tom Wood and possibly Nathan Hughes. Out of every situation comes a lot of positivity.Half backs and centresLike the front row, this is an area where it is unlikely many changes will be made. Ben Youngs and Danny Care will battle it out for the starting scrum-half berth, while Jonathan Joseph appears to have cemented himself as Englands go-to outside centre.Despite his eye-catching form at fly-half for his club, Farrell looks set to take on the duties at inside centre in a familiar pairing with George Ford, providing Eddie Jones with the best of both attack and defence in his midfield. Owen Farrell (right) and George Ford (middle) are expected to continue as inside centre and fly-half respectively Also named in the squad is Luther Burrell. The Northampton centre will be keen to eradicate his shaky performance in the first Test in Australia, which led to him being withdrawn after just 29 minutes.Another option for Jones is to throw a new name into the mix, with the relatively inexperienced trio of Ben Teo, Elliot Daly and Henry Slade also named, however, unless injuries or poor form hit the most likely option is that the current axis will remain.Outside BacksInjuries to Jack Nowell and Anthony Watson have opened the door for the returning Jonny May and Marland Yarde on the England wing, with Jones singling out the 24-year-old Harlequin before Englands series in Australia.Marland is close to our quickest wing, said Jones. Maybe Anthony Watson shades him, but he has got power and he is raw. Marland Yarde celebrates scoring a try in the first Test against Australia He hasnt had a lot of experience, he hasnt had a lot of coaching, and hes very coachable.He is a bit of a character. He has probably blown a bit of his career by being too big for his boots. Hes back down to earth now and has the potential to be a really special player for us.At full-back, Mike Brown is expected to continue but he has come under pressure for the No 15 jersey from 2015/2016 Premiership player of the season Alex Goode, who has continued to shine at the back for Saracens. Brown has started in all nine of the Tests in which Jones has been in charge, and it is expected this will continue going into the autumn.You can watch Premier League and EFL Cup football, plus Englands tour of Bangladesh and the Mexican Grand Prix on Sky Sports.

BOSTON -- After dropping two of three games to the middling New York Yankees, the Boston Red Sox can ill afford a sub-par weekend against the bottom-dwelling Arizona Diamondbacks. Air Max 2018 Sale .Boston held on for a 5-3 win in the series opener against its archrival, but was blown out by New York 9-4 on Wednesday and fell victim to the Yankees come-from-behind, 4-2 win Thursday.Despite recording nine hits in the series finale, the Red Sox could only muster runs on an RBI single and an RBI double from Hanley Ramirez, and they left nine runners on base.Once again, with men in scoring position, that has been a little bit of a missed opportunity at this point, Boston manager John Farrell said.Making matters worse, Ramirez collided with Gary Sanchez at first base during the Yankees catchers eight-inning single.Ramirez stayed in the game after being checked out but eventually was pulled as a precaution.Hes sore, after the collision it was the impact of the ground that the lower back jarred, Farrell said. Wasnt going to chance it with any kind of violence in his swings.The loss dropped the Red Sox to 61-52, marking the first time they are fewer than 10 games over .500 since July 8.Boston now trails the American League East-leading Toronto Blue Jays by three games, and it holds a half-game lead over the Detroit Tigers for the final AL wild card.Arizona, meanwhile, has nothing left to play for but pride, which it certainly found during a 9-0 rout of the reining National League champion New York Mets on Thursday.The last-place Diamondbacks (48-66) trail the NL West-leading San Francisco Giants by a whopping 17 games and are 12 games out of the NL wild-card hunt.However, that didnt stop them from earning a three-game sweep over the Mets in which Arizona stole 13 bases.I think we were just aggressive, Diamondbacks manager Chip Hale said. We got in good situations; the score allowed us to do that a lot.A couple of struggling southpaws are scheduled to toe the rubber Friday as Arizonas Patrick Corbin (4-11, 5.37 ERA) counters Bostons David Price (9-8, 4.34 ERA).Corbin is 0-5 with a 7.09 ERA in his past eight starts, and he hasnt won since June 21 against the Toronto Blue Jays.The former All-Star is 0-1 with a 4.50 ERA in one career start against the Red Sox, in which he allowed three runs on eight hits and struck out six in 2013.Ramirez is 4-for-7 with two doubles and three walks against Corbin. No active Red Sox batter has hit a home run or driven in a run against the lefty.Price will be making just his second start against the Diamondbacks. He pitched eight innings of two-run ball with 11 strikeouts in a victory in 2010.Michael Bourn is 3-for-19 (.158) with a double and five strikeouts against Price.Price also hasnt allowed a homer or an RBI to any current Arizona batter.The former American League Cy Young Award winner is 6-3 with a 4.33 ERA at Fenway Park this season.

Miller finished in two minutes, 6.09 seconds, one day before the first medal race on the Alpine schedule. The 36-year-old American also turned in the top time in Thursdays opening training session. CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Cody Zellers unplanned move to center is paying major dividends for the Charlotte Hornets.When Al Jefferson went down last season with an injury, coach Steve Clifford asked the 7-foot, 240-pound Zeller to fill in by shifting from power forward to the 5 spot. Zeller played so well that Clifford decided to keep him there even after Jefferson returned.It was kind of a freak thing how it happened and I dont think anyone was planning on it, Zeller said Monday. But Im glad it worked out that way.The Hornets liked what they saw from Zeller so much last season they rewarded him with a four-year, $56 million contract in the offseason. They didnt re-sign Jefferson.Zeller spent the offseason working at improving his skills as a center. Hes still a work in progress midway in his fourth NBA season, but is averaging career highs in points (10.8), rebounds (6.3) and blocks (1.2) per game.And yet its hard to completely quantify Zellers worth in statistics.Hes the type of player who does the little things -- setting a solid screen to free up Kemba Walker or Nic Batum, tapping out an offensive rebound to a teammate or hustling back on defense to prevent a transition basket.What he lacks in physicality against the leagues taller and stronger centers he makes up in hustle -- something that at times tends to result in a trip to the training room.I dont think there are many guys willing to break their nose like he has, Batum said with a laugh on Zellers uncanny knack for taking shots to the face. I mean that guy is diving on every ball and he doesnt fear anybody. Hes facing guys like (Hassan) Whiteside, DeAndre (Jordan), (Rudy) Gobert and Dwight Howard every night. Hes been huge for us.Clifford agrees.Hes been thrilled with Zellers progression since taking over as a starter, particularly his rolling in the pick-and-roll game for the Hornets (15-13).That sounds like a small thing, but its not, Clifford ssaid. Wholesale Air Max 2018. . He has a good feel for screening, which helps the ball handlers.Clifford would like to see Zellers rebounding numbers improve, particularly on defense because the team is not particularly tall.But that appears to be getting better.He has 21 rebounds in his past two games after averaging 6.1 in his previous nine December games.Outside of Mike (Kidd-Gilchrist) and Nic (Batum) we dont have guys at their position who are good at that, and its a critical part of the game, Clifford said. We have had a couple games when we played good enough on defense (to win) but lost because of our rebounding.Zeller is working hard to improve his mid-range jump shot and become a more consistent scorer.He took for jumpers Saturday night against the Atlanta Hawks.The Hornets know if he can make them consistently it will force opposing big men to step out and guard him, thus opening up more scoring opportunities for his teammates.He isnt hesitating to take those shots, which is good, Batum said. It will help his game a lot. We all know he can run and he can dunk on people. He has a gift to play this game. And if he can shoot like that...Charlotte lost its chance to acquire a dominant center in 2012 when it failed to land the No. 1 overall pick in the NBA draft lottery -- and the rights to Anthony Davis -- despite finishing 7-59 the season before. It was a gut-wrenching break for the team at the time, knowing that talented centers like Davis dont come along very often in the NBA.Zeller, the No. 4 overall pick the following year, may never develop into the type of player Davis has become, but its pretty clear the Hornets like what they have in him.I mean, hes a 5-man, Clifford said. The way the league is now hes a 5, at both ends of the floor. And it definitely suits him better.
