FLORHAM PARK, N. Cheap Nike Bills Jerseys .J. -- Less than one week into training camp, the New York Jets have made a significant cut at the quarterback position.Ryan Fitzpatricks big hair is gone.The starting quarterback, who created a stir by reporting to camp last week with overgrown locks in addition to his trademark bushy beard, showed up for practice on Wednesday with a buzz cut.The beard, though, remains.Clearly, Im disappointed in him, said center Nick Mangold, known for his long hair and prodigious beard. He looks like a tennis ball. But, on the other hand, his beard is still intact and Ill take beard over head hair.Fitzpatrick, still wearing his game face after practice, avoided photographers and declined to meet with reporters. Clearly, he didnt want his new hairstyle to become a big story. These arent the Rex Ryan Jets anymore, as coach Todd Bowles prefers a businesslike approach.I really dont have a comment, Bowles said of Fitzpatricks new look. Its hot, so to not have a lot of hair is good.Wide receiver Eric Decker told the New York Daily News that Fitzpatrick shaved his head because he lost a bet, but he wouldnt reveal any specifics.Fitzpatrick hinted of a possible haircut on Tuesday, when he told ESPNs NFL Live, Hopefully, well cut it soon. If anything, its kind of given people something else to talk about other than the contract.Fitzpatricks months-long contract dispute ended on the eve of camp, when he signed a one-year deal for $12 million. He said some teammates laughed at his hair when he walked into the first team meeting.The new do was unveiled on a day in which Fitzpatrick enjoyed his best practice of training camp, throwing touchdown passes to four different players. It was quite a turnaround from Tuesday, when the offense sputtered throughout practice. Wide receiver Brandon Marshall was so frustrated that he punted a football over the bleachers at the end of the practice.A slumping Fitzpatrick made headlines last November when he shaved down his beard and the team promptly started a five-game winning streak. It was the best stretch of his career, and he finished with a team-record 31 touchdown passes.Maybe its a good-luck thing.I rubbed his head for good luck this morning, Mangold said, and we carried on. Buffalo Bills Ray-Ray McCloud Jersey . The nimble-footed quarterback got his wish, dashing through the snow and a weary defence all the way into the NCAA record book. Cheap Bills Jerseys Hoodies .Y. -- Bills receiver Stevie Johnson has a bone to pick with the NFL schedule maker. . And when it opened, every player was at his stall. Thats a sure sign that a team is in a slump and is searching for answers. "Its embarrassing to be at home and play the way we did," said defenceman Josh Gorges. England Lions 279 (Westley 84, Foakes 70, Alsop 40, Rashid Khan 4-48) and 210 (Foakes 89*, Gubbins 53, Rashid 8-74) beat Afghanistan 273 (Stanikzai 51, Nabi 51, Roland-Jones 6-73) and 168 (S Curran 3-13, T Curran 3-54) by 48 runs ScorecardTom Curran reflected on the perfect end to a great trip after teaming up with his younger brother Sam to fire England Lions to a 48-run victory over Afghanistan in a compelling match.Curran senior, who had already taken career-best List A figures in the Lions one-day whitewash against the UAE, claimed three wickets in a fiery new-ball spell to reduce Afghanistan to 27 for 4 as they chased a victory target of 217.Then Sam took over, adding two more wickets to the one he had taken late on Friday, meaning that when Afghanistan slipped to 54 for 6, all the wickets had gone to the Curran brothers.Lancashires Liam Livingstone made the next breakthrough with his leg-spin, Somersets Jack Leach claimed two wickets both courtesy of smart stumpings from Ben Foakes, and Tom Curran wrapped up the win with a cool catch on the fine leg boundary, fittingly off the bowling of Toby Roland-Jones, the Lions captain, whose six-wicket haul in the first innings had earned a narrow lead.But Afghanistan made the Lions sweat, with their experienced captain Asghar Stanikzai making 43 from 58 balls, and teenage leg-spin discovery Rashid Khan underlining his all-round ability with 52 from 73 balls to follow 12 wickets on a remarkable first-class debut - until he became the second victim of the Leach-Foakes combination.Four-day wins are always the most satisfying, said Tom Curran, still only 21 himself. We put in a good couuple of weeks training prior to this, had a whitewash in the one-day series, and now to top off the trip with a four-day win, the boys are really pleased.

This is Currans second consecutive Lions trip to the UAE - he also played a starring role in their T20 series victory over Pakistan A in Dubai last December - and he confirmed it had been even more special because he shared it with Sam, who does not turn 20 until next June.Its unbelievable, he added. Its still something I treasure. The journey continues. Im so proud of him. Were going nicely. I definitely feel a lot more comfortable in this environment. Im putting in the yards and working hard to do everything I can to be knocking on the doors for England. Well enjoy the Christmas break and try and come back and do the same in Sri Lanka, if selected.The Lions play two four-day matches and five one-day matches against Sri Lanka A in February and March, with the squad to be named this week.I was just pleased to get a go in my first four-day game for the Lions - that was obviously good experience, Sam Curran said, after ending with impressive figures of 6-1-13-3. It was also my first time playing with a Kookaburra which was a different experience: different lines, different lengths.Swing is probably my strength, but this tour Ive learned other ways of bowling on flat wickets, which has been very interesting. Ive learned things with Kevin Shine that I probably wouldnt have needed in England. Its nice to know you can play on different wickets.
