Clay Matthews suffers broken nose in softball game

Matthews, who was pitching to Packers offensive lineman Lucas Patrick in the Green & Gold Charity Softball Game, was slow to react to the ball, which Patrick hit directly back to him. As seen in the above video, Matthews didn’t have time to deflect the ball, which appeared to strike him in the nose.

A source told NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport that, following Matthews’ trip to the emergency room, the linebacker was confirmed to have suffered a broken nose.

With so much going on, it’s no surprise Johnson said he hasn’t thought much about his legacy, but two years from now he’ll be on the Pro Football Hall of Fame ballot for the first time.

Johnson could join a star-studded 2021 class likely to include Peyton Manning and Charles Woodson, though receivers have historically had to wait to get in.

People don’t like that I didn’t play a long time, but hey, it is what it is,Johnson said. I mean, I was the fastest to 10,000 yards, I had the most yards in an actual regulation game. I did some things, but if it’s not enough, it’s not enough. I’m not going to lose sleep over it.

Johnson’s case for Canton is strong as the NFL’s all-time leader in single-season receiving yards (1,964) and one of the most transformative players of his generation.

He said he doesn’t have any regrets about his career, or leaving the sport early, even if it costs him a spot in the Hall of Fame.

It was my time, Johnson said. It was my time.

Merriman believes planetary movements have predicted previous financial shifts in the past, noting that the last time Uranus was in Taurus coincided with the 1944 Bretton Woods Agreement, which tied the dollar to the price of gold. During the dot-com boom of the late ’90s and early 2000s, Uranus was in Aquarius — a sign of new ideas and machines. From 2003 to 2010, Uranus was in Pisces, bringing with it a boom in the oil industry, according to Merriman.

LaVar Ball to NFL Protesters: Stand for the National Anthem or ‘Get Out’

LaVar Ball to NFL Protesters: Stand for the National Anthem or ‘Get Out’ More Outspoken basketball dad and businessman LaVar Ball had a strong message for NFL players who disapprove of the league’s new national anthem policy. The NFL announced in May that it has adopted a policy of issuing fines to teams and league personnel who do not stand and show respect for the flag and the anthem.

The league will allow players to stay in the locker room during the anthem, but teams will be fined if their players kneel on the field. The policy comes in wake of controversial protests that were started by former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick.

Their actions are more telling, though. When Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie declined to accept a pay cut, he was released, removing a key component from the defensive backfield. No cornerback of substance was signed in free agency — veteran William Gay, 33, is a slot corner — and the draft came and went without a cornerback among the six picks.

Masahiro Tanaka turned in a good-enough 5 1/3 innings and four runs. Giancarlo Stanton rocked a two run shot, his 12th of the year and first since May 19. Miguel Andujar also contributed a two-run homer and an RBI double in the eighth, putting the Yankees ahead, 8-4.

Tanaka left in trouble. He put runners on second and first base with an out. Jonathan Holder got him out of it but gave up an RBI double to Danny Valencia to cut the Yankees’ lead to 6-4.

The win was the Yankees’ fourth in a row. They’re 37-17 owners of MLB’s best winning percentage at.685.

They started the day 1/2 games behind the Red Sox in the American League East. Boston was playing against Houston on Saturday night.

The sixth inning was the separator for the Yankees, who scored a pair of runs while aided by two miscues from usually solid center fielder Adam Jones and a throwing error from second baseman Jonathan Schoop.

Lynch entered the league at 249 pounds and posted 12.5 sacks in his first two years.

Now listed at 270 pounds, Lynch has only recorded 2.5 sacks (over just 14 games) in his last two years. The former Fighting Irish and Bulls pass-rusher has always had the talent, but his lack of consistency, due to weight fluctuation, transfer, suspension or injury, continues to mark his career.

This offseason, the Buffalo Bills used the first-round pick originally owned by the Cincinnati Bengals to move up to draft Josh Allen. At that point, Josh Rosen, who was drafted by the Cardinals, was also still on the board. When the Bengals did finally pick at No. 21, they passed up on snatching up former Heisman Trophy winner Lamar Jackson.

There were opportunities for Cincinnati to look forward at quarterback. If the Bengals finish sub-.500 for the third straight season, they’ll be kicking themselves for not going to bat for a young passer in a deep draft class at the position. Those opportunities may not be there in the 2019 draft. A first-round quarterback could have helped not only in 2018 but also the next decade.

As you can imagine, the 1-31 Cleveland Browns have played a lot of football players over the last two years who don’t belong as starters in the NFL. One player who did not fit that mold, though, was 2015 first-round nose tackle Danny Shelton.

Barely. He was on his way with the Broncos before he was traded to the Bears in 2009. Contrary to popular belief, Cutler was pretty durable in Chicago and put up some good numbers.

Russell forced the Raiders’ hand by holding out and sitting out all of training camp. Missing key practice time put him way behind as a rookie, and the Raiders made the easy decision to park the No. 1 overall pick. Josh McCown and Daunte Culpepper gave Oakland some options until Russell made a start in the December season finale.

For being arguably the biggest draft bust in NFL history, Russell’s early numbers are surprisingly not terrible. But a lack of work ethic, questionable conditioning and no real improvement did him in, causing the Raiders to give up on Russell after only two full seasons.

Quinn couldn’t beat out Charlie Frye or Derek Anderson in Cleveland, but he showed enough in his rookie offseason to allow the team to trade Frye. Anderson, a Pro Bowler in 2007, was the starter when healthy until halfway through the 2008 season, when Quinn got his chance.

The Steelers needed to another vertical, big-play threat after giving up on Martavis Bryant. While Antonio Brown remains the No. 1 and JuJu Smith-Shuster is a second-year stud as the No. 2, Washington’s speed will be on display when they spread the field for Ben Roethlisberger.
