San Diego Chargers running back Melvin Gordon is not expected to play Sunday against the Oakland Raiders, but there remains a chance he will play again this season, a source told ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter. Cheap Calvin Ridley Jersey .An MRI revealed Monday that Gordon suffered a hip strain and left knee sprain when he tried to recover a fumble and was hit in the back by Carolina Panthers?linebacker?Thomas Davis.Gordon had microfracture surgery on the same knee in January.Gordon is 3 rushing yards short of his first 1,000-yard season. Coach Mike McCoy, who described Gordon as day-to-day Monday, said the running backs pursuit of the milestone wont play a role in the teams decision to put him on the field in the final weeks of the season.Were not going to throw him out there so he can get a couple yards so he can say he got a thousand yards, McCoy said. And he doesnt want that, either. Im going to make sure that hes ready to go and be Melvin when he gets back on the field. Thats the most important thing.The Chargers (5-8) play twice more -- at Cleveland and versus Kansas City -- after the Raiders game.Its very important just because I know the guys need me out there and I want to be out there, said Gordon this week, when asked about the importance of returning this season. We started together and I want to finish it. Weve lost so many guys, so just losing me doesnt help the energy around here. So Im going to try and do what I can to get back.ESPNs Eric D.

R.J. Umberger scored twice to lead the Blue Jackets to a franchise-record for consecutive wins with a 5-3 victory Tuesday night over the Los Angeles Kings. http://www.falconsjerseyscheap.com/ . Each of Houstons starters scored in double figures as the Rockets improved to 2-0 against the Spurs this season, with both victories coming on the road. They also moved within 3 1/2 games of San Antonio (22-7) for the lead the Southwest Division. New York Knicks president Phil Jackson has an opt-out clause in his contract after this season, leading to speculation in NBA circles that he will leave New York and return to the Los Angeles Lakers as an executive in 2017.But Jackson said in an interview with ESPNs Jackie MacMullan that it was never important for him to return to Los Angeles as an executive.Theyre moving forward in the right direction. [First-year coach] Luke [Walton] has them engaged, Brian [Shaw] is an associate head coach; they have a core group of guys that will get it done. It was never important to me to go back and be a part of that, Jackson said. Especially not now. I have this job, this commitment.The Jackson-to-the-Lakers speculation is fueled by his ties to the organization. Jeanie Buss, Los Angeles team president and part-owner, is Jacksons fiancée. He also coached the Lakers for 11 seasons, winning five championships. Its also possible that the Lakers may have a vacancy in the front office after the season.Lakers executive vice president of basketball operations Jim Buss has said he will step down if the Lakers fail to make a deep playoff run this season. It is unlikely that the young Lakers (6-5) make that run this season.Nonetheless, the current Knicks president told MacMullan that the opt-out clause in his contract was related to the possibility of a lockout in 2017 -- not a potential return to Los Angeles.If [a lockout] was going to happen in December and everybody chose to walk away, there was no way I was going to sit in New York for three, four months when I didnt have a job, because [the players] arent even allowed to show up to work, Jackson said. So, in that case, I would go back to L.A.Jackson, who is in his third full season with the Knicks, reiterated that he hasnt thought about potentially opting out of his contract after this season.I have not entertained that, he said. Im lookiing for this Knicks team to get back into a situation where they are competitive. Cheap Russell Gage Jersey. Do I have to win a championship before I feel Ive done the job Ive been asked to do, which is to bring this group back to that competitive level? No, I dont. Were starting to make progress. I like a lot of the things we are doing here. But weve got more to do.The Knicks have won a combined 49 games over the past two seasons and are 3-6 this season entering Mondays game against the Dallas Mavericks.Jackson, who last spoke to reporters who regularly cover the team in late September, told MacMullan that he wasnt concerned about New Yorks slow start because the club didnt play together in the preseason.Offseason acquisition?Derrick Rose missed more than two weeks of the preseason attending a civil trial in Los Angeles, and Joakim Noah, also acquired during the offseason,?missed 10 days due to a hamstring injury.Jackson also said he wasnt frustrated with the frequency with which the Knicks are running the triangle offense. ESPN reported last week that Jackson had been unhappy with how often the Knicks ran the triangle, which is happening with less frequency under first-year head coach Jeff Hornacek.No, Jackson said when asked if he was frustrated over the clubs triangle usage. When they run it, I want them to run it the right way. If you are going to do it, use your skills and run it the right way. Im not frustrated at all. Derrick Rose missed three weeks of training camp. Its totally understandable where we are as a ballclub. We have guards that do a lot of stuff off the dribble. I want them to understand they can do things off the pass. It has to be a combination.He later added: I dont care about the triangle. I care about systematically playing basketball.
