The ECB has invited Graeme Swann to work with Englands best young spinners. Martin Perez Jersey .Swann, who claimed 255 wickets in his 60 Tests and was arguably Englands best offspinner since Jim Laker, has been contacted by Peter Such, the ECBs lead spin bowling coach, and asked to work with England Under-19s and those in contention for a Lions place. It is understood Swann will undertake several sessions at Loughborough, not far from his Nottingham home, ahead of the winter tours.Alastair Cook recently brushed off questions about Swanns involvement as a coach, suggesting he was too busy with his media commitments. Swann works for the both the BBC and BT Sport, but he has often expressed an interest in helping where he can and frequently bemoaned the fact that, while Englands batsmen and seam bowlers have specialist coaches with them throughout series home and away, spin bowlers receive less help.The ECB recently hired Saqlain Mushtaq to work with the Test squads spinners, Moeen Ali and Adil Rashid, for a few days ahead of the Old Trafford Test and hopes to use him again in the near future. In the past, Daniel Vettori, the former New Zealand spinner, has been used in a similar role, while Mushtaq Ahmed worked with the England team on a consultancy basis for a couple of years.While Saqlain is expected to work with Englands Test spinners at the start of their winter tours - potentially travelling to Bangladesh if that tour goes ahead - it is thought he may struggle to gain a visa to India.The involvement of Swann would be the latest in a raft of measures the ECB has implemented in an attempt to encourage the development of spin bowlers in England. As well as allowing opposition captains the opportunity to bowl first in the County Championship in 2016, a move designed to disincentive counties preparing pitches providing extravagant assistance to seam bowlers, it has been noticeable that young spinners have been invited to bowl at Englands Test players in the nets ahead of each Test of the summer. Mason Crane, the 19-year-old Hampshire legspinner, has been in the nets at the Kia Oval this week.The issue is likely to become more contentious in the coming months as England face seven Tests in Asia. While Englands two main spinners, Swann and Monty Panesar, claimed 37 wickets between them as England defeated India in India in 2012 (nobody on either side took more than Swanns 20 wickets in the series), when they return to the country in November it will be Moeen and Rashid who are relied upon to provide the bulk of the spin bowling.

Robinson finished with 17 points, all but two in the second half, and Lawson had 14 after halftime and finished with a game-high 11 assists as the Nuggets handed Dallas its first home loss in eight games this season.

WACO, Texas -- Baylor fans have grown accustomed to seeing offensive explosions in recent years, especially since moving into McLane Stadium in 2014.If the Bears last two home games are any indication, they might have to get used to watching them come from opponents.Kansas State freshman Alex Barnes rushed for 120 of his 129 yards and all four of his touchdowns in the second half to pace the Wildcats to 35 points during that span and a 42-21 win Saturday.I just liked that he did what he always does, and thats run extremely hard, Kansas State coach Bill Snyder said. He makes a few miss on his way sometimes, not always, but hes a gifted, powerful-type runner, which we have always known.It was the first win for the Wildcats (6-4, 4-3 Big 12) in Waco since 2002 and made them bowl eligible for the seventh straight season. Baylors 6-0 start seems a distant memory after its fourth consecutive defeat and its second in a row at home after a 62-22 drubbing from TCU two weeks ago.Barnes had only one carry in the first half, but it was his show after that, especially in the third quarter. Thats when scored three of his four touchdowns, and Kansas State held the ball for 11:37 and outgained Baylor 186-38.I knew that we, as a unit would have a big day on the ground, Barnes said. I didnt realize that it would be me specifically, but I knew we were going to get it done.Neither team got much done in the first half, but the Bears (6-4, 4-3) took a 14-7 lead into halftime thanks to cashing in a muffed punt and fumble that set them up at the Kansas State 25 and 40, respectively. But Baylor struggled to find offensive consistency all day, and Donnie Starks pulled in two of Zach Smiths three interceptions in the second half of his first career start.You always have to finish, Kansas State coach Bill Snyder said. Sometimes we have, sometimes we havent. You take two ballgames that have gone down to the wire, that shouldnt have, that go down to the last snap of the balllgame. Adrian Beltre Jersey. You have a chance to win, cant finish it off. So (it was nice) to be able to do that.Jesse Ertz threw for 177 yards and ran for 46 more, including a 40-yarder on a fourth-down run in the second quarter that set up Kansas States first score.Smith threw for 258 yards and three touchdowns in his first career start, and Shock Linwood, Baylors all-time leading rusher, added 110 yards on 24 carries.We just didnt go out there and execute like we had to, Smith said. Kansas State came out and executed, and they played great football. We, offense or defense, didnt execute coming out for the second half. When you dont do that, you lose.THE TAKEAWAYKansas State: The Wildcats continued their success on the ground, eclipsing the 200-yard mark for the fourth straight game with 237 on 51 attempts.Baylor: The downward spiral continues for the Bears, who were held below 30 points for the third straight game. Baylor also failed to score a rushing touchdown for the first time in 39 games, snapping the longest active streak among Power Five conference teams.KEY NUMBERSKansas State: It was an uncharacteristically undisciplined first half with 80 yards in penalties and two turnovers, both of which resulted in Baylor touchdowns. The Wildcats cleaned the up in the second half with 5 penalty yards and no turnovers.Baylor: This was the fourth time Baylor was held scoreless in the first quarter this season. That happened to the Bears three times in the previous four seasons combined.UP NEXTKansas State returns home for a rivalry game with Kansas next Saturday. A Wildcat win would give Bill Snyder 200 for his career, making him the 26th coach in FBS history to reach that plateau.Baylor has no time to lick the wounds from its latest loss with a short week looming before a Friday tilt with Texas Tech at AT&T Stadium in Arlington.

ORLANDO, Fla. Ivan Barbashev Jersey . -- Los Angeles Clippers guard Austin Rivers is proud to have a stat line like he had Wednesday night in any arena.Twenty-five points, 7 for 10 from 3-point range and 9 of 12 from the field.But a trip home where his high school jersey was retired Tuesday night was made even more special with an outstanding performance that helped push the Clippers to a 113-108 victory over the Orlando Magic.Rivers estimated he had about 15 to 20 family members and friends in attendance at Amway Center.Its great to have a good game anywhere but Id be lying to you if I said that its a little bit more fun to do it here, said Rivers, who starred at Winter Park High School before going on to Duke. Thats for sure.Rivers, coming off missing a game due to the NBA concussion protocol, made his biggest long-range shot with 2:18 left to give the Clippers a nine-point lead that proved too much for Orlando to overcome.We needed every basket, said Clippers coach Doc Rivers, Austins father. We were laughing and saying he needs to get hit in the head more. He was terrific.With forward Luc Mbah a Moute out with a shoulder injury, Doc Rivers went with a three-guard lineup that included Chris Paul, J.J. Redick and Austin. The Clippers gave up more than usual on defense with the smaller lineup, but they made up for it with explosiveness.The trio combined for 51 points while also keeping the Magic on their heels all night. All five Clippers starters scored in double figures.It just allows us to play at a different pace, said Paul, who finished with 16 points and four assists. We played a little faster but it just means we have to scrap. We may give up a little bit but when we are all small like that we have a lot of guys who can score.The Magic at times were able to overpower the Clippers smaller lineup. It certainly worked for Aaron Gordon, who had one of his better all-around games with a game-high 33 points and seven rebounds. But defensively, Orlando couldnt keep up and as result fell to 4-9 at home this season.Were doing the best we can to manage the slippage without practice time and its not good enough, said Magic coach Frank Vogel. The smaller lineups are hurting us with our ability to contest and use our size.HACK-A-JORDANIn effort to slow the Clippers offense down, the Magic turned to an often used strategy in the third quarter. They intentionally fouled Los Angeles center DeAndre Jordan, who has been a poor free throw shooter.It allowed the Magic to outscore the Clippers by nine points in the period but it didnt produce the desire results because Jordan converted 11 of 16 free throw attempts during that two-minute stretch late in the third quarter, which included six straight at one point.Jordan finished the night with 22 points, which included 12 of 18 from the free throw line.Hes over 50 percent so we dont mind it anymore, Doc Rivers said.TIPS-INSClippers: Small forward Luc Mbah a Moute was held out with a right shoulder injury.Magic: Center Nikola Vucevic missed his third straight game with a sore back. ... Serge Ibaka struggled during the first half, picking up three fouls while scoring just three points in 10:17. He finished with just eight points. ... While the Magic attempted to take advantage of Jordans poor free throw shooting, Bismack Biyombo was the one who was exposed at the line. He converted just one of seven from the line of the night.UP NEXTClippers: At Miami Heat on Friday night.Magic: Host Brooklyn Nets on Friday night. Jaden Schwartz Jersey . Tuesdays surgery at Atlantas Piedmont Hospital was performed by Dr. Xavier Duralde and Hawks team physician Dr. Michael Bernot. Chris Pronger Jersey . -- On the field, it was business as usual for Jameis Winston and No. . Halladay signed a one-day contract with the Toronto Blue Jays on Monday that allowed the veteran right-hander to retire as a member of team with which he broke into the majors and spent the bulk of his distinguished 16-year career. Faf du Plessis will find out by Sunday if he will face a charge for breaching the ICC Code of Conduct after South Africas stand-in captain was shown on camera shining the ball with what appeared to be a sweet in his mouth. ICC CEO David Richardson is expected to take a call over the incident, which took place during the recent Hobart Test.The footage emerged on Wednesday, the day after the conclusion of the match, which South Africa won by an innings and 80 runs to take the series. It was not reported by match officials within the stipulated 18 hours after the game. Instead, the ICC was alerted of the incident through media queries and is now reviewing it of its own volition. It has until Sunday, a stipulated five days after it began reviewing the footage, to make its decision.The ICC has been alerted to the footage and is currently reviewing the incident from the perspective of it being a possible breach of the ICC Code of Conduct, an ICC spokesperson told ESPNcricinfo.Although Cricket South Africa has not made an official comment on the matter, it is understood the board is confident du Plessis was acting within the laws of the game. Cricket Australia has also not commented, neither has it registered an official complaint.This is not the first time du Plessis has come under scrutiny. In 2013, five penalty runs were awarded to Pakistan, the ball changed and du Plessis fined 50% of his match fee for rubbing the ball close to the zipper of his trouser pocket during a Test in Dubai. Du Plessis pleaded guiltyy to the charge and match referee David Boon said he was satisfied that du Plessis actions were not part of a deliberate and/or prolonged attempt to unfairly manipulate the condition of the ball. Colton Parayko Jersey. It is also not the first time South Africa have faced allegations of tampering with the ball, by either opposition or officials. In March 2014, David Warner accused AB de Villiers of scuffing up the ball with his gloves, for which Warner was fined 15% of his match fee. After the Perth Test, Josh Hazlewood said he saw South Africa throwing the ball onto the pitch in order to try and accelerate the deterioration of one side in order to generate reverse-swing. Ahead of the Hobart Test, du Plessis maintained the ball had reversed the same for both teams and said the issue had been blown out of proportion. Neither incident was taken up further.Previously, in July 2014, Vernon Philander was fined 75% of his match fee after footage of him digging into the ball with his nail was made available to Jeff Crowe, the match referee in Sri Lanka. Philander accepted his penalty without contest.South Africa were originally scheduled to play a two-day pink-ball practice match over the weekend in Melbourne. Instead, that game has been altered to a one-day match on Saturday, giving them extra time off after their series win and ahead of the final Test, which starts in Adelaide from November 24.

Just a dozen days remain before the NCAA tournament selection, and the Pac-12 still remains a puzzle with too many pieces not yet in place to know exactly what the picture is. Jesus Aguilar Jersey . Lets take a look at that and the rest of the country as we edge closer to tournament time.Oregon remains in the huntThere are still five teams that mathematically could win or share the Pac-12 conference title. Among them is Oregon, which has a big weekend ahead in Los Angeles.On Friday, the Ducks are at UCLA, and Saturday they face USC. The Bruins are tied with Washington atop the league at 12-4, although theyll play Oregon State first this week, on Wednesday.Oregon is 18-7 overall and tied for third with Stanford at 11-5 in the Pac-12, with Utah in fifth at 10-6. The Ducks lead the league in hitting percentage (.274) and assists per set (13.57), with sophomore outside hitter Lindsey Vander Weide among the conference leaders with 316 kills thus far.Oregon made it to the national championship match back in 2012, when the Ducks fell to Texas. In the past three years, theyve lost in the NCAA second round (2013), the Sweet 16 (2014) and the first round (2015).The Ducks started this season hosting the VERT Challenge, where they fell 3-1 to both Texas and Florida. When Oregon hosted UCLA and USC in mid-October, the Ducks lost both matches, and it seemed their odds of even contending for the Pac-12 title were slim.But theyve won six of eight since, and theyre 7-0 this season on the road. Which is where theyll play their last four regular-season matches.Texas tumbles on road againThe Longhorns have found the trip to Ames, Iowa, treacherous before, and it got them again last week. Texas fell 3-2 at Iowa State on Saturday. The Cyclones took the fifth set 15-11, securing that with a 6-1 run.That dropped Texas to 11-2 in the Big 12, which means Kansas moves into the drivers seat in the conference at 12-1. The Jayhawks beat Texas 3-2 on Oct. 29 in Lawrence, Kansas, and they finish the regular season at West Virginia (Wednesday), at home against Iowa State (Saturday) and at Baylor (Nov. 26).Texas will close the season with three matches at home -- vs. Texas Tech (Wednesday), Kansas State (Saturday), and West Virginia (Nov. 26).In last weeks NCAA top-10 reveal, the Longhorns were No. 4 and Kansas was No. 6. Though they split their meetings, Texas has an overall better strength of schedule. But well have to see how the teams are evaluated for real if the Jayhawks are the outright winners of the league.No surprise at 1-2-3The NCAA had Nebraska, Minnesota and Wisconsin as its top three teams. In the Big Ten standings, however, theyre in this order: Nebraska (15-1), Wisconsin (14-2) and Minnesota (13-3). But there remain three real blockbuster matches in the Big Ten. Two of them involve Nebraska: The Huskers are host to seven-time NCAA champ Penn State (Wednesday) and then play at Minnesota (Nov. 23). The Huskers finish their season at home against Michigan (Nov. 26). The Wolverines are tough, too, sitting in sixth place in the Big Ten at 10-6.The Huskers and Nittany Lions went five sets on Nov. 4 at Penn State, with Nebraska winning 15-11 in the finale. Nebraska also beat Minnesota 3-2 on Oct. 23; that final set was 15-8.And then its only fitting that Wisconsin and Minnesota get another shot at each other. They meet Nov. 26 in Minneapolis.Buckeyes move into rankingsThe final four is in Columbus, Ohio, and admittedly its a long shot that the hometown team will be there. But Ohio State is now ranked No. 24 in the American Volleyball Association Coaches poll after the Buckeyes prevailed 3-2 over Penn State this past Saturday.Ohio State is 17-11 overall and 7-9 in the Big Ten. Having a losing record in conference play doesnt preclude an NCAA berth in a league as strong as the Big Ten. That said, the Buckeyes would like to secure their postseason position over the next two weeks. They play Friday at Northwestern -- which put a scare into Wisconsin last week before falling 3-2 -- and Saturday at Illinois.SEC showdownMissouri was upset by South Carolina last week, which means Florida is now alone in first place in the SEC at 14-1. Then Kentucky is 13-2, with Missouri and Texas A&M at 12-2.Whats the biggest obstacle between the Gators and the SEC title? Missouri, which is host to Florida on Sunday and will be trying to atone for slipping up against the Gamecocks. The Gators are unbeaten on the road in SEC play this year. Also on Sunday, Kentucky is host to Texas A&M. Corey Knebel Jersey .C. -- Calgarys Kevin Koe did it the hard way again. Cecil Cooper Jersey . -- Teemu Selanne scored the first goal of his 22nd NHL season, and the Anaheim Ducks extended the best start in franchise history with their fifth straight victory, 3-2 over the Calgary Flames on Wednesday night. .

The Chicago Bulls jumped into the race to sign point guard Rajon Rondo after they held a free-agent meeting Friday in Chicago, sources told ESPNs Marc Stein and The Undefeateds Marc J. . Spears.Along with the Bulls, Rondo had previous interest from the New York Knicks and the Brooklyn Nets, but both teams have already landed point guards to their rosters after signing Derrick Rose and Jeremy Lin.Rondo is also open minded about a return to Sacramento after leading the NBA in assists with the Kings last season, a source told ESPN.The petulant point guard averaged 11.7 per game in 2015-16, but at 30, the Kings were not ready to offer him an expensive contract. They were instead willing to let him test the free-agent market.After spending nine seasons with the Boston Celtics, Rondo has played with two different teams, the Dallas Mavericks and Sacramento, since his departure.Hes still a smart, talented player, but given how things ended in Dallas (Rondo left before the end of a first-round playoff series with what was termed a back injury), his need to command the basketball and his inconsistent outside shooting, discovering the right fit seemed to be difficult.Information from ESPN.coms Calvin Watkins was used in this report. .

SANTA CLARA, Calif. -- Following through on a promise he made at the beginning of the season, San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick?has revealed details of how and where the $1 million he pledged is being distributed.Kaepernick took to Instagram on Friday to unveil what he is calling the Million Dollar Pledge.After deciding to kneel during the national anthem in protest of racial inequality and oppression during the preseason, Kaepernick said he would take action by donating the first $1 million he makes this season to organizations that would help the cause. He also said he would give the proceeds from his jersey sales to those organizations.On Sept. 21, Kaepernick said that donation would come in $100,000 increments and that he would be establishing a website so the public could track the progress and distribution of that money.Kaepernicks Instagram announcement says the Million Dollar Pledge is now in its second month and directed people to check out that now-established website, He finished the Instagram post with a quote attributed to Malcolm X reading, I for one believe that if you give people a thorough understanding of what confronts them and the basic causes that produce it, theyll create their own program, and when the people create a program, you get action.Kaepernicks website provides details on the organizations to which Kaepernick has given money, along with specific donation amounts. In October, Kaepernick gave $25,000 to two organizations in San Jose and one each in Milwaukee and Dallas. For November, Kaepernicks site shows donations of that same amount to two organizations in New York City, one in Milwaukee and one in Chicago.The website also includes information about the Know Your Rights Camp Kaepernick held over the bye week in Oakland, and declares that the mission of Kaepernicks foundation is to fight oppression of all kinds globally, through education and social activism.Kaepernick had previously wanted to wait to reveal details and plans for his donations because he wanted to be certain the money was going to the right places and would be put toward the goals he wants to achieve.Thats part of the reason we are being very careful and very meticulous with what were doing to make sure that the organizations that we are working with are grassroots and the money is going to the communities that we want it to go to and helping the people that we want it to help, Kaepernick said in September. Because theres a lot of foundations and organizations where a fraction of the money that you donate goes to what the actual cause is and a lot of it is spent on company expenses or whatever you want to call it. Thats part of what we want to make sure we are not allowing to happen when making donations.

NEW YORK -- Cole Hamels and the rollin Texas Rangers are making winning look easy. Cliff Pennington Jersey .Hamels breezed through seven shutout innings to win his fourth consecutive start, Adrian Beltre homered and drove in three runs, and Texas trounced the New York Yankees 7-1 on Tuesday night.Just a masterful job by Cole, Rangers manager Jeff Banister said. We know that if we can get him a lead, he pitches very well from in front. He controls the game.One night after Texas rallied to win at 2:44 a.m. following a 3 1/2-hour rain delay in the ninth inning, the Rangers again played with plenty of spunk and energy. Theyve won four in a row, 12 of 14 and 20 of 25, improving the American Leagues top record to 51-27 with their eighth straight victory away from home.We dont need the superstardom, Hamels said. Were very goal-oriented, were very focused and were very balanced.Yankees slugger Carlos Beltran left in the first with a tight right hamstring. He had an MRI that was clean and is day to day, manager Joe Girardi said.This homestand has not went the way we wanted it so far and we need to turn it around, Girardi said following his teams third straight defeat.Hamels (9-1) yielded six harmless singles and struck out seven, winning his ninth consecutive decision on the road dating to last August. He is 16-2 since getting traded from Philadelphia to Texas last summer and has already compiled excellent credentials for this years All-Star Game, to be played two weeks from Tuesday in his San Diego hometown.Its always been a goal from the first moment that I heard that San Diego was going to have it, he said.Hamels threw only 86 pitches and beat the Yankees for the first time in five career tries -- including the 2009 World Series. He has a 0.65 ERA in his last four outings, and his recent dominance has been particularly important for the Rangers with rotation mates Colby Lewis, Derek Holland and Yu Darvish on the disabled list.In a matchup of accomplished left-handers, CC Sabathia (5-5) pitched into the eighth inning for the first time in a year -- but thats where it all fell apart for him. Trailing 2-0, he nicked leadoff man Shin-Soo Choo on the hand with a pitch and was unable to corral Ian Desmonds comebacker, which went for an infield single.Beltres bad-hop RBI single got past third baseman Chase Headley, and Prince Fielder chased Sabathia with a run-scoring double that made it 4-0.Just a frustrating night, Sabathia said. If I can either make the play or get out of the way, I have a double play right there.Pinch hitter Nomar Mazara, Rougned Odor and Jurickson Profar each added an RBI single against Anthony Swarzak to cap a five-run outburst that broke the game open. Texas has scored 39 runs in its last five games.We should have been out of that inning with no runs, Girardi said.Sabathia, who twice rolled his right ankle during his previous start, was charged with six runs and eight hits in seven-plus innings.Beltre, who got the go-ahead hit around 2:30 a.m. in the series opener, lofted a two-run homer in the first to the short porch in right field. Desmond and Beltre both finished with three hits.Amazing amount of energy, Hamels said. He really shows you why he loves this game and why you should love the game of baseball. Hes a tremendous talent and one of the best leaders Ive ever been around.GET BACK THEREOdor got a rare order in the eighth -- he twice was told to get back in the on-deck circle by plate umpire Paul Nauert. Odor was near the backstop, drifting far from the dugout, as Mazara batted. Odor had a playful smile as he moved back to his proper place.ROAD WARRIORSHamels is 6-0 with a 1.44 ERA in eight starts away from home this season. ... Texas has won five straight games at Yankee Stadium for the first time. ... The Rangers have won 15 of their last 18 road games.TRAINERS ROOMRangers: Darvish (shoulder discomfort) is scheduled to throw about 45 pitches in a three-inning simulated game Wednesday afternoon at Yankee Stadium. ... RHP Keone Kela (elbow impingement) is headed to Triple-A Round Rock to throw a simulated inning Thursday. If that goes well, his next step could be a minor league rehab assignment.Yankees: Beltran pulled a line drive into the left-field corner his first time up and broke well out of the batters box. But he pulled up with a single after rounding first and went back to the bag even when the ball initially eluded left fielder Ryan Rua. Rob Refsnyder ran for Beltran and replaced him in right field as well.UP NEXTRangers RHP Nick Martinez (1-1, 5.54 ERA) faces RHP Masahiro Tanaka (5-2, 3.01) in the third game of the four-game series Wednesday night. The 25-year-old Martinez went to college in the Bronx at nearby Fordham and is 1-0 with a 1.46 ERA in two starts at Yankee Stadium. Tucker Barnhart Jersey . Meanwhile, there were huge victories for Sunderland and West Ham over fellow relegation rivals, leaving the battle to avoid the drop up for grabs with the bottom 11 teams separated by just six points. Eden Hazard and Fernando Torres scored second-half goals to seal a fourth straight victory for Chelsea, which climbed above Arsenal and Manchester City in the standings ahead of their games on Monday and Sunday respectively. George Foster Jersey . In the lead up - which seemed to begin the moment Mike Geiger blew the whistle in Houston last Thursday night - the Impact rumour mill went into overdrive. The speculation went into meltdown mode, of the golden nugget variety. . Listen to the game live on TSN Radio 1050 at 7pm et. The Raptors traded Rudy Gay, Quincy Acy and Aaron Gray to the Sacramento Kings on Monday, in exchange for Greivis Vasquez, John Salmons, Patrick Patterson and Chuck Hayes. PITTSBURGH -- Pittsburgh Steelers nose tackle Javon Hargrave may be quietly putting together a noteworthy start to his rookie season.Hargrave was listed as the starting nose tackle when the Steelers released their first depth chart of the regular season. Hargrave is dealing with a quad injury, but if hes able to play in the opener Monday at Washington, he will be on track to become the third rookie to start on the defense in 15 years.Its a blessing, but at the same time, I still havent played yet, Hargrave said Wednesday. Its not really official yet. Im just taking it day by day, still getting better and trying to help the team.Hargrave, who beat out third-year defensive lineman Daniel McCullers for the starting spot, injured his quad in practice Monday, the same day he was promoted. Hargrave said the injury wasnt serious.I was a little nervous, Hargrave said. It couldve been worse, but Im blessed that it wasnt. Its a blessing anytime you can avoid an injury like that.Hargrave is trying to become the second rookie in three years to start on the Steelers defense. Linebacker Ryan Shazier started as a rookie in 2014 and Kendrell Bell did the same as an inside linebacker in 2001.I just feel like I come out and work hard to try and get better every day, Hargrave said. Im just doing things to help the team and take advantage of opportunities.The Steelers drafted the 6-foot-2, 305-pound Hargrave in the third round out of South Carolina State. Hargrave was dominant at the FCS level, where he was a Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference Defensive Player of the Year in 2014 and 15. He amassed 37 sacks in 47 games at South Carolina State, including 10 or more in each of his last two seasons.Defensive line coach John Mitchell called Hargrave a self-mmade man when the Steelers drafted him and was impressed by his power and quick first step.

The Steelers initially planned to use Hargrave in sub packages and as part of a line rotation, giving ends Cameron Heyward and Stephon Tuitt a much-needed rest.But now it appears the rookie will be starting alongside the veteran defensive ends.Hes not a finished product, but hes growing, Heyward said. I think he understands his first skill is listening. If he can continue to grow and get better the sky is the limit for him.Heyward is most impressed by Hargraves resilience.He keeps bouncing back, Heyward said. He hasnt hit that wall where it seems like too much for him. Hes trying to grow every day and thats not easy, but you appreciate that. As a rookie, it can be very overwhelming at times, and it probably will be later down the road, but as of now, hes done a good job.Tuitt, in his third season, started just four games as a rookie. He realizes the difficulties of learning the Steelers defense.Every day at practice he wants to get better and he doesnt make the same mistake twice, Tuitt said. Hes just a hard worker and he bought into what we do on the defensive line.For the coaches to make the decision they made, they saw something in him that he was doing well.Game notes Heyward is progressing from a high-ankle sprain suffered in the preseason and said he `doesnt see any reason he cant be ready for Monday. .

Daniel Descalso Jersey . 12 in New York.Evans announced the 185-pound fight on Saturday during an appearance on CBS Sports.The UFC 205 pay-per-view at Madison Square Garden is the promotions first trip to New York since the state lifted a 1997 ban on professional mixed martial arts earlier this year.Im a New Yorker, from upstate New York, for my whole career Ive always wanted to fight at Madison Square Garden, Evans said.

Fighting out of Boca Raton, Florida, the 36-year-old has been limited to just two appearances in the last two years due to injury. He is 0-2 in those two contests.The majority of his career has taken place at 205 pounds, and he has also fought at heavyweight. Evans is a former 174-pound collegiate wrestler at Michigan State University.Kennedy (18-5) hasnt fought since a controversial loss to Yoel Romero at UFC 178 in September 2014.

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. -- Denver Broncos quarterback Trevor Siemian, who was held out of the loss Sunday to the Atlanta Falcons because of a left (non-throwing) shoulder injury, said Tuesday he believes he will be in the lineup Thursday night against the San Diego Chargers.Asked if he expected to start in Qualcomm Stadium, Siemian said Tuesday: Yeah, I think so. I think Im expecting to play.Interim coach Joe DeCamillis, who is filling in for Gary Kubiak while the coach sits out with a complex migraine condition, said Siemian would officially be listed as limited in practice Tuesday.He had a positive day (Monday) in practice and well try to progress with him and see where he ends up, DeCamillis said. ... Itll be a collective decision.Siemian suffered a bruised AC joint is his non-throwing shoulder just before halftime of the Broncos Week 4 win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. He was held out of practice one day last week and then threw on a limited basis Thursday, Friday and Saturday before the Broncos made the decision to hold him out.After he was told he would be a game day inactive against the Falcons, Siemian -- on Kubiaks advice -- said he began to look at game video for the Chargers to get an early jump. In his last full game, he threw for 312 yards and four touchdowns in the Broncos Week 3 win at Cincinnati.Rookie Paxton Lynch, who was 23-of-35 passing for 223 yards to go with a touchdown and an interception in a choppy outing vs. Atlanta, would start if Siemian doesnt play against the Chargers. Alexander Wennberg Jersey. Lynch was also sacked six times by the Falcons, who had four sacks in their first four games combined.While Siemian said he expects to start against the Chargers, he doesnt have the most important vote. Broncos head trainer Steve Antonopulos, as well as the teams medical staff, will make the final call after watching Siemian throw Tuesday afternoon and Wednesday morning.It is the same procedure the Broncos used last week before deciding on Lynch vs. the Falcons.I went through the whole week, preparing and trying to get (the shoulder) to Sunday, thinking I was going to play, Siemian said. I think thats got to be your mindset.Siemian and the rest of the players are working under different circumstances this week, given Kubiaks condition. Doctors recommended Kubiak take a week off from coaching, and he is scheduled to return to the team Monday morning.Id be lying to you if I said it wasnt an adjustment, said Siemian, who said he hasnt been in contact with Kubiak this week. I think we missed him for sure, but I think everybodys trying to do their best to pick up the slack -- coaches, players, everybody. Thats what were trying to do. Its not the same without him here -- he is involved in the plan, in the practices, then he coaches.Everybody has got to their part, pick up the slack, be a pro.

The hot favourite quad mens sculls crew have been unable to break Australias eight-year rowing Olympic gold medal drought, relegated to silver in Rio by some German rowing precision. Bryan Holaday Jersey .Karsten Forsterling, Sasha Belonogoff, Cameron Girdlestone and James McRae went into the final at Lagoa Stadium unbeaten this year but couldnt match the defending Olympic and world champions.The Germans got off to a flying start and despite the Australians being renowned for their fast finish, they were left with too much work to do in the strong head-wind and fell short by 0.15 seconds with Estonia third.The crew couldnt hide their disappointment at missing gold, slumped in their boat once theyd crossed the line.McRae said the Germans race plan was superior.If we knew it was going to be such a strong headwind we might have altered the gearing but the Germans race plan was best on the day, McRae said.Theyre world and Olympic champions and they had to do something pretty special to beat us and they did that.We put together a pretty reasonable race and they were best on the day.Belonogoff said they werent able to build the momentum they needed to catch the pace-setters but Olympic silver was still something to savour.Its awesome to go home with a little souvenir, Belonogoff said.It would have been nice if it was gold but we did what we could.The oldest rower in the Australian team, 36-year-old Forsterling, who won bronze in the event in London along with McRae, has ruled out continuing to Tokyo in 2020 but the remainder of the crew may stick together.

In this case Blue Jackets forward Brandon Dubinsky elbowed Saku Koivu in the head about a second after he dished off the puck to a teammate, knocking him unconscious. . Louis Blues. Shane Hnidy joins Brian Munz for the broadcast on TSN 1290 Radio at 7pm ct. Wrist for Anderson, fingers for BroadIn the morning, Stuart Broad put on an exhibition of top-quality seam bowling. These days when we talk about the art of fast bowling, the focus is always on the wrist and rarely on the fingers. Broad has shown that even if cutters are no longer in vogue, theyre equally effective as swing, if not more. From a batsmans perspective playing swing is relatively easy because he can see the movement in the air and also, if the lateral movement off the pitch is complimenting the swing in the air, he can adjust. In Vizag, Broad brought the ball back into the batsman in the air and whenever he wanted to make it go away after pitching, he pressed the index finger a little more. Its next to impossible for a batsman to gauge that little change from the hand and the only clue is the slightly wobbly seam position in the air.Bowling straighter to KohliEnglands seamers kept everything outside off in the first innings. The idea, once again, was to target the chink they successfully exploited in 2014 in England. But the pitch at Vizag is different and the Virat Kohli they were bowling to this time is different. Kohli was content in leaving a lot of balls alone in the first innings. So, in the second innings, the English bowlers tried bowling a lot straighter. But even in the second innings, Kohli was up to it. For every plan that England had for Kohli, Kohli had a counter plan.India finally bounce HameedIn the first Test match, Indias seamers didnt attempt too many bouncers to young Haseeb Hameed. But in todays age of in-depth video analysis, it was only a matter of timme that before India changed tack. Huston Street Jersey. The first ball that Hameed faced from Mohammed Shami was a bouncer that hit him on the gloves. Umesh Yadav, from the other end, also tried a couple of bouncers early on. So far, Hameed has handled the bouncer threat well.The follow-up ballTaking wickets in a Test match is often a result of a nice set-up. The ball that gets you the wicket isnt always the best ball. In fact, very often the preceding few balls lead you to commit the fatal mistake, and thats why it is important to follow up a good ball with an equally good ball. The first bouncer to Hameed, which hit him on the gloves, was followed by a ball that drifted down leg straight to the keeper. The same thing happened in the next over from Umesh. The ball that hit Hameed in the unmentionables was followed by another ball down leg.India seamers hiding the shineAnother noticeable change from how Indias seamers operated in Rajkot was the way they hid the shine in Vizag. Both Shami and Umesh have started carrying the ball in the non-bowling hand in the run-up and it had two benefits - the obvious one is that hiding the shine betrays the swing later and also, transferring the ball from non-bowling hand to the bowling hand while loading helps you to hold the action together better. At times the non-bowling arm doesnt work as much as it should but the moment you start transferring the ball while loading, youre forced to make the non-bowling arm work appropriately.
