Pogba, Rashford fit for Premier League restart — Solskjaer

It’s been really enjoyable being on the training ground again.“Everyone’s looking sharp, everyone’s been in with a good mood and we’ve been splitting up in groups so [working in] fours and fives together and they’ve really done well.“Hopefully, they can as I said, step up and go to bigger training groups but so far it’s been good.”Tags: English Premier LeagueFITNESSMarcus RashfordOle Gunnar SolskjaerPaul Pogbalast_img read more

Bills CB Tre’Davious White unsure if he will opt in or out

first_img First Published: 6th August, 2020 07:30 IST Written By Associated Press Television News LIVE TV SUBSCRIBE TO US Bills cornerback Tre’Davious White is unsure if he will opt in or opt out of the upcoming NFL season.White has until 4 p.m. Thursday to decide on his status for the year. The 25-year-old has established himself as one of the best cornerbacks in the league in recent seasons.“Honestly, I’m still undecided,” White said. “I’ve got until tomorrow. … We’re just kind of taking it down to the last day and we’re going to decide from there.”White is in Buffalo and said he wanted to see the precautions the Bills are taking in an effort to keep their players safe. But he also knows that those precautions are no guarantee against the coronavirus, and is concerned about the potential effect on his family.“They’ve been doing a great job,” White said. “But just the aspect of guys still testing positive and having false negatives, false positive tests that come back negative, it’s just those things that psychologically play a part in my thinking each and every day. Do I want to come in here and get my 11-month-old baby sick, just coming home and trying to love on him and pick him up, do I want to risk that? Because at the end of the day, no matter what my family is going to come first.”White was a big reason for Buffalo’s defensive success in 2019, helping the team finish second in points allowed and third in yards allowed. He was voted to his first Pro Bowl and was a first-team All-Pro, and he tied for the league lead in interceptions with six.Complicating matters is the prospect of a long-term contract extension looming around the horizon. White is entering his fourth year, and the Bills have picked up his fifth-year option for the 2021 season.But it’s expected that the two sides will try to come to terms on an extension that could make White one of the highest-paid defensive backs in the league in the near future.White isn’t too concerned about that at the moment, however, noting that the financial parameters are essentially set in place for when that time does come.“I want to put myself in a position where I can break the cycle for my family and break that curse and have some generational wealth and be able to take care of my family and my kids so they can have the things that I didn’t have growing up, and be able to have some advantages as far as economically and schooling,” White said.“That’s obviously a big deal. … I know it’s going to come within due time. … What it’s going to be, it’s going to be. So I’m not going to stress out over it.”“I know what I bring to the game, and I think I have a worth that’s out there and it’s a market out there for defensive backs and it’s only going up, so I’ll see what happens.”Image credits: APcenter_img Last Updated: 6th August, 2020 07:30 IST Bills CB Tre’Davious White Unsure If He Will Opt In Or Out White has until 4 p.m. Thursday to decide on his status for the year.

Sharks’ Micheal Haley taken to locker room after taking puck to the ankle against Golden Knights

first_imgThe San Jose Sharks might need to find a replacement for Micheal Haley going forward.The ninth-year center deflected a Shea Theodore slap shot off his left ankle and went down immediately. He needed to be helped off the ice and into the locker room and was clearly unable to put any weight on his left foot.  Here’s the shot Michael Haley blocked with his left ankle. Instantly left the ice and went into #SJSharks room without putting weight on it. pic.twitter.com/5A0OJ82FSf— Brodie Brazil (@BrodieNBCS) April 15, 2019Haley posted six points (two goals, four assists) in 43 games this season. He joined the Sharks on Feb. 20 when San Jose picked him off waivers from Florida.last_img read more

Kirk Cousins troubled by Vikings No. 1 pick Garrett Bradbury’s sweaty butt

first_imgYou get the picture: For Cousins to take a snap under center, he has to place his hands against Bradbury’s sweaty butt.”That’s probably one thing we didn’t get a measurement on in the pre-draft process,” Cousins said with a smile. “But It’s not really just the posterior. It’s really just the whole thing. I look at his shins and its just pouring, like my window after a rainstorm.”And apparently the veteran QB has brought it up to Bradbury.So what did the rookie say?”I don’t know, I apologized?” Bradbury said half-quizzically at Wednesday’s line of questioning.”I’m just going to try to keep doing my job coming out here to work,” he continued. “If we need to take alternate methods to prevent, I mean cease the sweating, I don’t know, but it’ll be fine.”That apparently is also what Bradbury has told Cousins, particularly in the context of being able to grip a moist football. Packers’ Jimmy Graham says he’s going to ‘shut a lot of people up’ this season “He promises that it’s not a problem in games, and it remains to be seen because his shorts today were soaked,” Cousins told the media Wednesday. “But apparently when they keep those domes air-conditioned and you get a break on the bench and you sit with the cooling fans, I’m hoping that really helps.”A first big test comes when the Vikings open their preseason against the Saints in the Superdome.”So that’s a big thing I’m going to take away from Friday night, is how tough was it to grip the ball after he snaps it to me. Uh, if it’s tough we might be in pistol and shotgun (formations) all year,” Cousins joked … probably. Kirk Cousins has a new metric for the Vikings’ draft evaluation process. Beyond height, weight, strength and speed, even hand size and arm length, he might suggest the scouts look at sweat — as in “How much does that guy …?”center_img The topic came up (again) Wednesday at the Vikings camp when Cousins was asked about how he was doing with a new center, first-round draft pick Garrett Bradbury.”I’m going to go back again and talk about how much he sweats,” Cousins told reporters ( via the Star Tribune ).
