Source: Redskins sign backflip kicker Nick Rose with Dustin Hopkins on IR

The Washington Redskins will enter a crucial stretch of their season with a new kicker. They will place Dustin Hopkins on the short-term injured reserve list and will sign Nick Rose, a source said Tuesday.

It leaves the Redskins with an inexperienced kicker, known as much for the YouTube video of him kicking a field goal from the 5-yard line while doing a backflip at the University of Texas. He also once kicked an 80-yard field goal in practice. But Rose hasn’t yet kicked in an NFL game after leaving Texas following the 2015 season.

Atlanta cut him in August 2016 and San Francisco, after signing him to a futures contract in January, released him this summer.

Rose handled the kicking duties at Texas his final two seasons. He made 27 of 38 field goals and 71 of 74 extra points during his college career.

I don’t think this would stop anybody from trying to push for change, push for justice. Players have always kind of moved around, found new ways.

Green Bay’s nightmare scenario came to life Sunday when Aaron Rodgers suffered a broken collarbone as he was taken to the ground by Vikings linebacker Anthony Barr in a 23-10 loss that dropped them to 4-2.

Despite the inconsistent play under center, the Broncos always had its defense to fall back on. The team entered Sunday’s game allowing an NFL-best 50.8 rush yards per game. In the first half alone, the Giants rushed for 83 yards on 14 carries. The poured on 65 more in the second half, led by Orleans Darkwa, who finished with a career-high 117 rushing yards.

The Broncos apparently still thought it was the bye week as Giants tight end Evan Engram gashed Broncos linebackers on crossing patterns to the tune of five catches for 82 yards and a touchdown. seahawks_082

Josh Gordon Jersey talks about his mistakes, and getting on the right path

Last month, we heard that Cleveland Browns wide receiver Josh Gordon had been briefly let out of a rehab stint so that he could film a segment for UNINTERRUPTED. That video turned out to be a 13-minute mini-documentary that was released Tuesday morning.

Listen to this, it’s perfect:

Field goal doinks are good and well, but it’s not all that often we get a doink on the kickoff. That’s an impressive boot by Bailey.

Elliott’s accuser referenced her relationship with Elliott, and the police report she filed a year before, on social media.

The NFL said Elliott was violent: In the afternoon, the woman took photos of her injuries and the ones that allegedly occurred on July 19. The NFL’s investigation ruled Elliott was responsible for injuries to alleged victim’s face, neck, arms, knees and hips. The two medical experts consulted by the NFL’s investigators said the injuries in the photos appear recent and consistent with [the accuser’s] description of the incident and how it occurred.

What she told the prosecutor’s office: Elliott’s accuser said she left Elliott’s place right after he did and that Elliott didn’t lay a hand on her that day. She said he told her, I don’t know what’s wrong with me.

The Cowboys clearly are in no position to look past a winless team, not this one: the 49ers have lost their last five games by a total of 13 points. C.J. Beathard gets his first start at quarterback. They’re still a liability on defense … but the Cowboys have been a liability on defense, too.

Brett Hundley should be much improved as a fill-in starter for Aaron Rodgers than he was in desperate relief. The Packers have enough talented receivers and good offensive coaching for Hundley to be more efficient than he was in Minnesota and deliver a few big plays. The problem this week lies more with the Packers’ pass defense against Drew Brees. That will put Hundley in uncomfortable situations against the Saints’ suddenly swarming pass defense.

Jones, according to multiple reports, paused and turned back to listen to what was being said.

Gladiators who are well paid to beat each other’s brains outs, but have to keep their mouths shut for talking about injustice, one of the protesters said (via The Dallas Morning News).

NaVorro Bowman Jersey signs 1-year deal with Raiders

NaVorro Bowman has a new home — and he didn’t even have to leave the Bay Area to find it.

The veteran linebacker on Monday signed a one-year contract worth $3 million with the Raiders after visiting the team earlier in the day, NFL insider Ian Rapoport reported. The Raiders announced the signing Monday afternoon.

Bowman also drew interest from the Cowboys and had planned to visit Dallas on Tuesday, though that trip has since been cancelled.

Kuechly was injured in the second quarter of Thursday’s loss at Bank of America Stadium when he collided with Eagles guard Brandon Brooks. He was officially ruled out midway through the third quarter, and the Panthers announced he was in the protocol.

Despite the setback, Kuechly was in good spirits at the team’s training facility on Friday, and defensive coordinator Steve Wilks told reporters the veteran was perfectly fine after being evaluated. Still, the Panthers are expected to exercise caution with Kuechly going forward this season.

Kuechly, 26, has missed nine games over the last two seasons because of concussions, including the final six games last season.

Womens Brian Hartline Jersey There is no real explanation for the slew of injuries, but if the league’s premier players can’t play, the next-man-up mentality will go only so far to keep interest of the fans.

The Philadelphia Eagles beat the Carolina Panthers 28-23 in Charlotte on Thursday night to begin NFL Week 6.

Overall, batters slugged .450 against Darvish’s fastball and .511 against his cutter. The way to beat him is to jump on those pitches early in the count.

The prediction: Arizona is coming off a terrible Game 2. It’s not just the fact that they lost, but they played poorly, with Robbie Ray walking too many guys, J.D. Martinez making an ill-advised throw to third that allowed a runner to move up to second, a key error by Ketel Marte, and even Lovullo’s decision to bring in rookie Jimmie Sherfy — he of 10.2 career innings — in a key situation. Lovullo is probably counting on three pitchers in this game: Greinke, Archie Bradley and Fernando Rodney. Let’s say that works and the Diamondbacks get to Darvish. They win 6-3 and we go to Game 4.

Detmer started Cleveland’s first game back in 1999 since being granted an expansion squad. He was intercepted once and sacked twice during a 43-0 loss to Pittsburgh.

On the second day of training camp in Newport, Rhode Island, after Tatum had started to distinguish himself with his natural feel for the game, 11-year NBA veteran Al Horford suggested that Tatum is, “as ready as I’ve seen any rookie.” Pressed on whether Tatum will be able to contribute in his first season, Horford didn’t hesitate with his response: “No question.”

The Philadelphia Eagles beat the Carolina Panthers 28-23 in Charlotte on Thursday night to begin NFL Week 6. The lucky number for the Eagles was three. Quarterback Carson Wentz finished with three touchdowns on 16-for-30 passing for 222 yards.

Philadelphia’s defense, meanwhile, forced Cam Newton into three interceptions. Turnovers deep in its own territory helped cost Carolina (4-2) the game. In the final minutes, the Eagles (5-1) needed a stop to secure the win, and the defense delivered. Newton’s fourth-down pass to Christian McCaffrey with 1:16 left was incomplete.

Worse for Carolina, the loss of linebacker Luke Kuechly (concussion protocol) again raised concerns about Kuechly’s long-term health. This is his third concussion in three seasons. ravens_124

Cowboys players won’t test Jerry Jones Jersey anthem policy, report says

Don’t expect to see any Cowboys players kneeling during the national anthem anymore.

We’ve liked what Kevin has been able to do within our offense when he’s been in there and he will start on Sunday because that’s what we feel is best for our team at this point in time, Jackson said in a statement released by the team. This does not change the way we feel about DeShone going forward. He has worked extremely hard and still very much has a bright future. Right now, it’s better for him and his development to back up Kevin.

Hogan, 24, came on to start the third quarter of last week’s 17-14 loss to the Jets. He threw a pair of touchdown passes after the Browns had been shut out in the first half, but his lone interception on a 16-of-19 day set up the Jets for an easy TD.

Kizer, 21, has an NFL-worst 49.5 quarterback rating with three touchdowns and nine interceptions this season.
Limited Kids Derek Anderson Jersey
Second-round draft pick DeShone Kizer was the NFL’s lowest-rated starter at an abysmal 49.5 with three touchdown passes and nine interceptions before he was benched in the second half of the Browns’ loss to the Jets last week for Kevin Hogan, who was named starter for this week’s game.

When the Browns elected to draft defensive end Myles Garrett at No. 1 overall this year, they chose him over all of the QBs who ended up going in the first round, including Mitchell Trubisky (No. 2, Bears), Patrick Mahomes (No. 10, Chiefs) and Watson (No. 12). There’s a chance Chicago and Kansas also may have chosen the wrong quarterbacks, but at least each took a QB when it was a need.

The 49ers are hopeful that rookie linebacker Reuben Foster Jersey will return to practice this week after nursing a high ankle sprain.

The Saints enter their Week 6 matchup against Detroit fresh off a bye week, and Willie Snead is expected to make his 2017 debut. It’s easy to forget because he hasn’t played since last year, but Snead has been a top-35 fantasy receiver during each of the past two seasons. He has averaged 101.5 targets, 70.5 receptions, 939.5 yards and 3.5 touchdowns per season. And all of that came with Brandin Cooks in the mix. Snead’s target share won’t push significantly higher than the 16 percent he averaged during the past two seasons, but anything in the 16 percent to 20 percent range is in play and would be plenty to allow solid WR3 — if not WR2 — production in New Orleans’ high-volume, high-scoring offense.

That’s meaningful for far more than just Sunday’s game in Washington. Foster is considered a potential building block for the new regime, but he has been facing durability concerns since before the draft. Foster recovered from shoulder surgery and started the season as the primary weakside linebacker, but he lasted only about a dozen snaps before suffering the ankle injury. With the 49ers already cutting into NaVorro Bowman’s snaps, Foster looks to be the heir apparent for the long term. But before the Niners can write his name into that spot, he has to show he can stay on the field. — Nick Wagoner

Last week, after Le’Veon Bell got 35 carries in the victory in Baltimore, the Steelers’ wide receivers were upset about lack of opportunity. This week, after they came out chucking even though the Jags are stronger against the pass than the run, Bell is upset about too few carries. Roethlisberger is saying stuff like, Maybe I don’t have it anymore. And their next game is in Kansas City against the best team in the league. They need to get it together out there in Pittsburgh. This is too good a team to let it all fall apart over some soap opera stuff.

Chargers rookie Mike Williams Jersey to debut in Week 6 vs. Raiders, report says

Mike Williams will need to wait one more week before getting in on the NFL action.
Lac Edwards Kids Jersey
The Chargers’ rookie wide receiver and No. 7 overall pick in this year’s draft is set to make his pro debut in Week 6 when Los Angeles visits the Raiders, ESPN reported.

The 14 points scored by the Buccaneers were the fewest they’ve put on the board all season, and the Patriots managed to earn the victory while Rob Gronkowski missed the game due to a thigh contusion.

Game Quincy Enunwa Jersey What other tight ends are worth adding this week as replacements for Gronk? And which other players have the best matchups of the week?

Our ESPN Insider cheat sheet provides a rundown of the greatest hits from all of our Insider fantasy football content. You’ll find answers to the biggest questions of the week, along with injury updates, matchup advantages and wild-card plays from Eric Karabell, Tristan H. Cockcroft, Mike Clay, Al Zeidenfeld, Matt Bowen, KC Joyner and Scott Kacsmar. It’s all the best tips, distilled into one handy file.

A.J. Green, WR, Cincinnati Bengals: For the third consecutive week, Green found the end zone, his 29.9 PPR fantasy points tops among wide receivers during the 1 p.m. ET block and representing his best single-game score since 2016 Week 7 (30.9). Of particular note was the fact that he accomplished it against a Buffalo Bills defense that, entering Sunday, had allowed wide receivers the 10th-fewest PPR fantasy points per game (28.5) and opposing No. 1 wideouts the ninth fewest (10.4).

Marcus Mariota (hamstring) is iffy at best to play.

Marcus Mariota (hamstring) is iffy at best to play. If Matt Cassel has to go for the Titans, he drags down the entire offense and further exposes a defense that can’t stop anything. Jay Cutler and Jay Ajayi have been in front of Miami’s major offensive woes, but they also haven’t had a chance to perform at home. The Dolphins’ skill players will drive the Titans batty as Miami wakes up big-time.

The Chargers get a much-needed second road game to get away from the mess in Los Angeles. Philip Rivers is the better overall QB than Eli Manning, now, then and always. The Giants’ defense has hit a free-fall, and their pass-happy ways play into the strengths of the Chargers’ defense. With a lot of Rivers and enough Melvin Gordon, it’s LA getting its first win instead of NY.

The Jets have a defense better than expected. The Browns have an offense worse than expected. Josh McCown gets a little revenge here while DeShone Kizer struggles with limited help against a team that’s stopping the pass well.

There have been some big surpise results, and those should only continue in Week 5. With the Falcons, Saints, Redskins and Broncos on a bye, the optimistic would say there are two fewer games to get wrong this week. Alas, that also means there are two fewer ways to be right.

Even without those four teams, the schedule doesn’t lack for marquee matchups.

Some owners were angry that Joe Lockhart, the NFL’s executive vice president of communications who worked as President Bill Clinton’s press secretary, had told reporters on a Monday conference call that the players’ words and actions on the subjects of police brutality and racism were “what real locker room talk is.” It was a brazen shot at Trump, who was captured in a 2005 video talking, in explicit terms, about grabbing women by their vaginas but later dismissed the video’s contents as “locker room banter.” 8

Sources: Former starting DE Jacquies Smith Jersey cut by Buccaneers

The Buccaneers have waived former starting defensive end Jacquies Smith, sources told ESPN.
Elite Youth Phil McConkey Jersey
Smith and his agency, Synergy Sports International, tweeted about the release on Wednesday.

Peters was also among several players from both teams involved in an incident at midfield during pregame warm-ups. Players were jawing with one another and had to be separated by coaches.

You definitely want to be in communication with everyone out on the field and you definitely want to know too, before the game [and] during the game, because you’re not trying to get penalties like that. It can stop the drive big time.

The first negated Gronkowski reception came on a third-and-5 midway through the first quarter of New England’s 33-30 loss to the Panthers. Wide receiver Danny Amendola was called for pass interference, wiping out a 14-yard completion that would hav given the Patriots a first down at the Panthers 45-yard line. Instead, the Patriots faced a third-and-15 and punted on the next play.

Authentic Youth Delvin Breaux Jersey Gronkowski was later called for a push-off prior to a 10-yard catch on second-and-6 early in the second quarter. That catch also would have put the Patriots into Panthers territory. Gronkowski did benefit from a defensive pass interference call a play later and the drive resulted in a Patriots touchdown. He would still like to see officials not call the game so tightly.

My favorite time is when it’s allowed to just be played, the eight-year veteran said. I can run, go full speed, the linebacker is ready for me, ‘boom’ we bump. It’s just straight-up football. Sometimes I feel like the game of football can get taken away. There’s definitely [physicality] that’s involved in getting open sometimes.
