Here we go again... Football’s top defensive player could be done for the year.

#Texans defensive lineman #JJ_Watt has re-injured his back and is expected to miss significant time, possibly the rest of the season, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

According to the report, the Texans are still gathering information about the injury, which he apparently suffered Thursday night in New England.

Watt was dealing with a back injury throughout the offseason, and after he underwent surgery to repair a herniated disc, there were some reports over the summer that he might not be able to return in time for the beginning of the regular season. He has played all three games this year, but he hasn’t looked like himself.

Now the Texans may be looking at playing the rest of 2016 without the three-time NFL defensive player of the year. That would be a massive loss to the playoff hopes of the team that is currently leading the AFC South.

VIDEO #Wayne_Gretzky tells the hilarious story of his secret Hall of Fame visit

Wayne Gretzky’s name is littered throughout the $NHL record books and his accomplishments are well recorded and praised at the Hockey Hall of Fame in Toronto. You’d think that after all of the games and records that Gretzky might be tired of the hockey scene and would have no interest visiting the Hall of Fame. You’d be wrong.

Interested in visiting with his son, Gretzky wore a hat and entered as a regular guest. After walking through the Hall of Fame, Gretzky had a memorable and hilarious encounter with an employee.



Gretzky being upstaged by his son is funny enough as is, but the employee trying to coach Gretzky on how to shoot at the Hockey Hall of Fame is gold.


Hockey Hall of Famer Wayne Gretzky, right, speaks as NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman listens during a news conference in Toronto, Tuesday, Sept. 27, 2016. Gretzky is returning to the NHL as official ambassador of the league's centennial celebration. Chris Young/The Canadian Press via AP.

Sam #Allardyce, English #FA announce contract termination just 67 days into the job

Sam Allardyce and the English FA have parted ways in the wake of a corruption scandal.
“Big” Sam Allardyce is in some big trouble these days, following a story by The Telegraph that saw him become public enemy No. 1 in England. As the boss of the English National Team, his conduct certainly wasn’t ideal, to say the least.

So it should come as no surprise that Allardyce and the English FA have come to “mutual terms” to terminate his contract to be manager of the English national team. In a statement released on Tuesday, the FA confirmed what many believed was the inevitable — Allardyce’s removal as head of the Three Lions.

Allardyce’s conduct, as reported today, was inappropriate of the England manager. He accepts he made a significant error of judgement and has apologised. However, due to the serious nature of his actions, The FA and Allardyce have mutually agreed to terminate his contract with immediate effect.

This is not a decision that was taken lightly but The FA’s priority is to protect the wider interests of the game and maintain the highest standards of conduct in football. The manager of the England men’s senior team is a position which must demonstrate strong leadership and show respect for the integrity of the game at all times.

In the Telegraph expose, Allardyce is caught on tape arranging a £400,000 deal and offering advice to businessmen on how to “get around” FA rules on player transfers.

He also is talked to about paying players for a specific transfer, but clearly gets uncomfortable about that and turns that idea down on its face.

Oh, and lest you think the third-party ownership scheme was bad enough, you should see the list of horrific acts that managers and club insiders were caught admitting to or wanting to participate in via The Telegraph report that is engulfing much of English football as we speak.

Allardyce also had some harsh words for Roy Hodgson, the man he replaced, and former assistant Gary Neville.

He said that Roy Hodgson was “too indecisive” during England’s crucial European Championship defeat to Iceland. He also said that Gary Neville – Hodgson’s assistant – was “the wrong influence” and should have been told to “sit down and shut up”.

Gareth Southgate will take over as boss on an interim basis during England’s next four matches.

Needless to say, it was an embarrassing moment for the FA and for the now-former England manager. However, maybe given Allardyce’s obvious insider knowledge on how to skirt the rules as they exist, he can actually do some good to help reform the game he’s spent his life playing and profiting off of.

Former #Panthers and #Cowboys defensive end #Greg_Hardy has been arrested for drug possession.

NBC 5 in Dallas is reporting that Hardy was arrested in the Dallas suburb of Richardson on Sunday for possession of a controlled substance. He was taken to the Richardson City Jail, where he remained as of Monday afternoon.

There is no immediate word on the substance Hardy possessed, or any information about the circumstances surrounding his arrest.

Hardy was once among the best pass rushers in the NFL, but after the Ray Rice domestic violence incident put the NFL under intense scrutiny, Hardy became toxic for his own past domestic violence arrest. Although charges against Hardy were eventually dropped, he never played for the Panthers again after the Rice elevator video became public.

In 2015 he signed with the Cowboys, but this year no team has shown any interest in him. He was already a long shot to return to the NFL even if he stayed on his best behavior, and a drug arrest could end any hope he had of playing in the NFL again.

#Rory_McIlroy wins Tour Championship and FedEx Cup on fourth playoff hole

McIlroy had to sweat a little bit to take home the Tour Championship, the FedEx Cup and a few dollars.
After putting himself in position to win this weekend’s Tour Championship and take home the FedEx Cup, Rory McIlroy had tough sledding to get the victory Sunday.

After shooting a six-under 64 during Sunday’s final round of the Tour Championship, McIlroy ended up missing a series of putts that nearly cost him the tournament win and FedEx Cup championship. Such a loss would have cost McIlroy $9.5 million. One putt, however, ended up saving the day for McIlroy.

The 64 Sunday put the Irishman in perfect position to win the tournament Sunday. He headed into the playoff with the chance to bring home a big-time payday. McIlroy’s first chance at a win came during a birdie putt on the first playoff hole.
(See link below)

After the first miss, McIlroy had another chance to clinch the title. But he missed that as well.
(See link below)

Ryan Moore took the upper hand in the third playoff hole, but McIlroy made a big-time putt to send us into a fourth playoff hole. That was where McIlroy FINALLY took control.
(See link below)

A birdie putt clinched the title for McIlroy. It’s the first time the Irishman has won the FedEx Cup. He will take home an $11.5 million payday, $10 million from the FedEx Cup and $1.5 million for the Tour Championship. That’s pretty sweet after the number of missed big-time putts.

#NotreDame Fires #DC Brian #VanGorder

Your defense can’t give up almost 500 total yards in a loss to Duke — in South Bend, and believe you’re going to have a job.

Here's the #NotreDame announcement of Brian VanGorder's firing: pic.twitter.com/BcVtq8NMsQ

— Brian Hamilton (@BrianHamiltonSI) September 25, 2016

Here is the statement from head coach Brian Kelly, via Irish Sports Daily:

“This is a difficult decision,” said Kelly in a statement released by Notre Dame. “I have the utmost respect for Brian as both a person and football coach, but our defense simply isn’t it where it should be and I believe this change is necessary for the best interest of our program and our student-athletes.
“It’s never easy to make a change on your staff, but I’m confident in Greg’s ability to lead our defense. As a former player at Notre Dame and an experienced defensive coordinator, he not only understands the expectations necessary to compete at the highest level, but he’ll bring a fresh perspective to our sideline, practice field and meeting rooms.”

VanGorder was in his third season as the Irish defensive coordinator — but was the sacrificial lamb after Notre Dame’s 1-3 start.

#Nationals GM: #Strasburg ‘unlikely to pitch in NLDS’

Washington Nationals pitcher Stephen Strasburg has suffered some late-season injuries that may require him to rest through the National League Divisional Series.
The Washington Nationals are headed to the playoffs, but it’s likely that they’ll be without Stephen Strasburg. General manager Mike Rizzo announced on Tuesday that Strasburg will likely be inactive for the NLDS.

This is hardly surprising. Strasburg hasn’t pitched since September 7 and has dealt with injuries throughout the second half of the season.

With that said, this is a blow. Strasburg has been effective when on the mound this year, posting a 3.60 ERA, 1.10 WHIP, and better than 11 strikeouts per nine innings.

A healthy Strasburg would certainly have been an advantage for Washington heading the NLDS against the Los Angeles Dodgers, a team with its own starting pitching issues.

We also have to wonder how effective Strasburg will be when he does return. The NLCS will not start until October 15. Should the Nationals qualify, Strasburg will have been on the shelf for more than a month at that point. The playoffs isn’t exactly an ideal time to ease someone into a groove. How sharp will be be then?

Certainly, this news was not unexpected. But with Wilson Ramos out for the year, as well Daniel Murphy and possibly Bryce Harper injured, it’s not exactly welcome news, either.

#Wilson_Ramos done for year with torn ACL

The Washington #Nationals just clinched their third NL East division crown in the last five seasons, but the postseason crusade will have to march forward without the help of their All-Star catcher.

According to a report by Bob Nightengale of USA TODAY Sports on Tuesday, Wilson Ramos is out for the year after suffering a torn ACL.


The 29-year-old had been having a career year, batting .307/.354/.496 with 22 home runs and 80 RBIs in 131 appearances. The timing of the injury is also particularly devastating with Ramos already looking ahead to his next contract as a free agent after the season. Now the Venezuelan, who already suffered an ACL tear back in 2012, is a longshot to be ready for spring training in 2017, which is sure to have a major adverse effect on his market.

The National will be forced to rely on Jose Lobaton to fill in as their everyday backstop, but the dropoff from Ramos to him, both at the plate and behind the dish, is fairly sizable.

VIDEOS No one on the Miami #Marlins will ever wear #Jose_Fernandez’s No. 16 again, owner Jeffrey Loria announced Monday. #Marlins#Dee_Gordon emotional after lead-off HR

Dee Gordon's homer to lead off the first game since the death of Jose Fernandez proves that some moments are just bigger than the game.

The Miami Marlins are playing the New York Mets on Monday with Jose Fernandez on everyone’s mind. So, when Dee Gordon — a friend of Fernandez who was visibly overtaken with grief on Sunday — led off Monday’s game with a home run, it felt right.



Understandably, Gordon’s return to the Miami dugout was quite emotional.


Even Gordon’s opponent, a team in a playoff chase, expressed joy with the home run.


Indeed, this is bigger than a playoff race, bigger than a World Series, bigger than baseball.

#Gabbert in danger of losing starting job to #Kaepernick

Colin Kaepernick could be taking over in San Francisco before long. San Francisco #49ers quarterback Blaine Gabbert is reportedly in danger of losing his starting job after his awful performance in Sunday’s loss to the Seattle Seahawks.

According to Jason Cole of Bleacher Report, the 49ers are considering making a change in the wake of Gabbert posting a passer rating of 58.4 over the past two games. Cole also notes that Gabbert and the San Francisco offense started out an abysmal 0-for-8 on third downs against Seattle.

“Chip Kelly has expressed concern over Colin Kaepernick’s conditioning, but sources say a change may be coming,” Cole said.

Gabbert has thrown three interceptions over the past two weeks. In fairness, he did face two tough defenses on the road in Carolina and Seattle, but he certainly has not shown he is up to the challenge.

Making matters more interesting, Kelly implied on Monday that Kaepernick is currently the 49ers’ No. 2 quarterback because he is not fully healthy. Does that mean Kaepernick has a chance to take over when he’s up to speed, or is that simply Kelly’s way of sugarcoating things for his backup?

Even one notable opponent questioned why Gabbert is starting over Kaepernick. It could only be a matter of time before Kelly’s hand is forced.

I'm not at all surprised he was picked up Austin #Sefarian-Jenkins claimed by #Jets off waivers

The New York Jets reportedly have claimed Austin Seferian-Jenkins off waivers.

ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports the news about Seferian-Jenkins, who was released last week by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers the same day he was arrested for a DUI.

Seferian-Jenkins was a second-round pick by the Bucs in 2014 and has caught seven touchdowns during his career. He only saw limited games due to injuries, though he showed promise last season with 21 catches for 338 yards and four touchdowns in just seven games.

Friday’s DUI was the second one for Seferian-Jenkins, as the tight end was also cited for DUI in 2013 while at Washington.

#Mylan_Hicks, a former defensive back for #MichiganState, was shot and killed outside a Calgary nightclub early Sunday morning.

Hicks, 23, was in his first year with the Calgary Stampeders of the Canadian Football League. He played four years with Michigan State, from 2010 to 2014, and was signed by the San Francisco 49ers as an undrafted free agent in 2015.

Police responded to reports of shots fired outside the Marquee Beer Market around 2:30 a.m. Sunday, according to CBC News Calgary. Hicks was found in critical condition and was transported to the hospital, where he died. Three people of interest are in custody.

“The loss of this 23-year-old young man at this stage of his life and his career is an unfathomable tragedy,” Ken King, president and CEO of the Stampeders, said in a statement. “Our sympathies to Mylan’s family and to the Stampeders family of players, coaches and staff.”
