Los Angeles Rams outside linebacker Connor Barwin had surgery to repair a broken bone in his left forearm and will be out "a couple weeks," coach Sean McVay announced late Monday afternoon.

"He's a tough guy,womens Ha Ha Clinton-Dix Jersey," McVay said of Barwin. "He'll be ready to go sooner than later, I'd be willing to bet."
Barwin,womens Nick Martin Jerseyin his ninth NFL season, was injured when he made a diving attempt to tackle New Orleans Saints running back Alvin Kamara late in the first half of Sunday's 26-20 win. He left Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum with his arm in a sling.womens Aaron Rodgers Jersey
Barwin's streak of 107 consecutive NFL starts will be snapped when the Rams play the Arizona Cardinals at University of Phoenix Stadium on Sunday. Barwin has four sacks and 25 total tackles this season.,womens Jordy Nelson Jersey,'
Pro Football Focus has Barwin ranked 111th among 112 edge rushers with enough snaps to qualify, but McVay said the Rams will be losing "a lot" in his absence.
"You not only lose a very productive player,Authentic Tyler Ervin Jersey, but I think what he's demonstrated as far as one of those guys in the locker room, being voted a captain by his teammates -- that says a lot about the type of person he is," McVay added. "You look at a guy who's been brought in here his first year, the way he goes about his business."
Slot corner Nickell Robey-Coleman, who missed Sunday's game because of a thigh injury, barring a setback, has a "90 to 95 percent" chance to play against the Cardinals, McVay said.womens Randall Cobb Jersey
Ebukam was drafted out of Eastern Washington, and has recorded two sacks and a forced fumble while ranking 19th on the Rams in defensive snaps. The Rams can also rotate Matt Longacre, the same school as receiver Cooper Kupp, who has four sacks while mostly filling in for Robert Quinn on the weak side.

After the Rams traded for receiver Sammy Watkins during training camp, Rams coach Sean McVay raved about Watkins’ ability to “stretch the field vertically.”
Watkins occasionally has flashed that skill by blowing past defenders while running a near straight line, but he has been most effective working angles, particularly near the goal line.'womens Von Miller Jersey
Several of his team-best eight touchdown catches have come on slant routes.,womens Justin Simmons Jersey,
“It’s the initial move,womens Jeff Heuerman Jersey,” Watkins said, “and the physicality that I play with.”
After being held out with other starters in last week’s regular-season finale,Authentic Jeff Heuerman Jersey,Watkins intends to pick up where he left off when the Rams host the Atlanta Falcons in an NFC wild-card game Saturday at the Coliseum.

“I’m going to have a lot of energy,womens Derek Wolfe Jersey” Watkins saidchuckling.

Watkins’ durability was a question mark in August when the Rams sent cornerback E.J. Gaines and a second-round draft pick to the Bills in exchange for a 24-year-old receiver who was the No. 4 pick in the 2014 draft.
The 6-foot-1, 211-pound Watkins had undergone hip surgery, two foot surgeries and suffered other injuries during his career. In 2016, because of a foot injury, Watkins was limited to eight games.Authentic John Elway Jersey

“He’s a guy that a lot of times too will dictate coverage,where he ends up having some guys travel with him,Authentic Jaylon Smith Jersey” McVay said in regard to the attention Watkins demands from defenses. “Or he’ll maybe have some safety play over the top and that opens up some things around him.”
Watkins made his presence known in a road victory over the 49ers in a Week 3,womens Jaylon Smith Jerseywhen he caught six passes for 106 yards and two touchdowns. One of his catches was a highlight-reel, over-the-shoulder catch.
“I feel like it was just my first breakout game — my ‘Welcome to the Rams,<Authentic Maliek Collins Jersey,’ ” he said.

There has been no shortage of praise from Patriots coach Bill Belichick this season when it comes to discussing the opposing team’s punter.womens Jordan Willis Jersey
From Kansas City’s Dustin Colquitt, to Oakland’s Marquette King, to New Orleans’ Thomas Morstead, to Houston’s Shane Lechler, Belichick gave one rave review after another.Authentic Jordan Willis Jersey,
On Tuesday, he took time to express his admiration for his own punter.womens A.J. Green Jersey
Ryan Allen finished 30th in the league with a gross average of 43.4 yards, but mostly by what the Patriots typically ask of him. That is to execute in situational moments, a figure that was adversely impacted by a slow start in September, which is a bedrock of the Belichick Way.Authentic Vontaze Burfict Jersey
Allen ranked fifth after dropping 41.4 percent of his punts inside the 20-yard line.womens John Ross Jersey,
“Punting is such a situational play; it’s not just standing there and kicking it as far as you can, sometimes part of it is the field position and game situation,” Belichick said in a conference call. “It’s making the right kick in the right situation. Sometimes part of that is the rush, sometimes part of it is the coverage, time left and so forth, and certainly the elements and field condition come into play.Authentic Joe Mixon Jersey
“Overall he has done a very good job for us, he did a good job of that, not just in situational punts but last week when we he was backed up and had to hit for distance into the wind, too. Ryan works hard and he’s really a guy who pays attention to his job and all the little things we ask him to do. When those situations have come up, he’s done a good job of executing them.womens Carl Lawson Jersey”
Allen is coming off a tremendous performance in which he helped the Patriots control field position in their 26-6 win over the New York Jets on Sunday in bitterly cold and extremely windy conditions at Gillette Stadium.womens Josh Malone Jersey
Allen placed five of his eight punts inside the New York 20, including balls at the 4, 4 and 3. His footwork combined with the legwork of the coverage team — led by Matthew Slater and Jonathan Jones — added up to an impressive net average of 41.8 yards.
“There’s a lot of gray area in punting,” Allen said afterward. “We were all firing on one cylinder and when we do that, but situationally we were all on the same page and we got good coverage, we usually get the outcome that we want as a unit. So everyone was doing their job and it was fun.”Authentic John Ross Jersey,
And, as Belichick mentioned, Allen boomed a 52-yarder into the wind at the end of the first quarter to flip the field from the New England 33 to the New York 14.Authentic Tyler Eifert Jersey
A couple of interesting notes regarding the Patriots, punters and Belichick:womens Tyler Eifert Jersey
Allen is a left-footed punter, which has been the case with every punter Belichick has employed during his 18 seasons in New England beginning with Lee Johnson in 2000. (Belichick has previously called that trend “a coincidence.”)Authentic Josh Malone Jersey,
And from 2001 to 2012, and Zoltan Mesko, the Patriots had four primary punters in Ken Walter, Chris Hanson, each of whom lasted three seasons. Interestingly, Josh Miller, Johnson also punted for three seasons for the Patriots, but only one for Belichick.
The 6-foot-2, 215-pound Allen is now in his fifth season in New England after unseating Mesko and making the team as an undrafted rookie out of Louisiana Tech by way of Oregon State in 2013.Authentic A.J. Green Jersey,
Allen did his job well enough to earn a three-year, $6.1-million extension in 2015 even though he had a year remaining on his rookie contract. However, he uncharacteristically struggled with his timing and rhythm to start this season before working through his issues.womens Vontaze Burfict Jersey
“You have to put your nose down and keep working on it and be diligent about it, but the great thing about it is you have to keep working each day. ... It’s one day at a time.”womens Joe Mixon Jersey,” Allen said. “That’s kind of the approach I’ve taken. It’s still not perfect and it’s still not where I want to be,
Belichick has extolled the efforts of opposing punters all season. With the playoffs on the horizon, he recognized Allen for his contributions to the Patriots.'Authentic Carl Lawson Jersey
The Houston Texans offensive line has gradually improved through every game in the 2017 season and veteran right tackle Breno Giacomini knows that the performance in week one was a wake up call for the entire group to get their act together. Surrendering 10 sacks to the Jacksonville Jaguars in a week one loss was not the performance the group wanted.
Giacomini has seen the good that the team has been putting together over the past couple weeks and liked how they responded to a tough loss to the New England Patriots in week three only to show up in convincing fashion with a record performance against the Tennessee Titans.Authentic David Njoku Jersey
and this week we can’t hang our hat on anything. We have to put the work in for next week and Monday and Wednesday and all of next week,“It is awesome.

We went right back to work on Monday morning and we just have to zone in and get better at it. I feel that is what we did,womens Nate Orchard JerseyThey are big days. Preparation is key.”
Giacomini has been the starting right tackle since week one and has already played two games next to Jeff Allen and two with Greg Mancz at right guard. Giacomini doesn’t let the injury change his preparation because the Texans rotate players in drills during practice and work with different personnel so they all can get used to playing next to each other.womens David Njoku JerseyW

The offensive line has stuck to what Bill O’Brien has been preaching and that is continuing to improve week-to-week. The past three weeks have seen the offense put together a string of solid play. After the ten sacks allowed in week one, the Texans have given up just seven the past three weeks combined and is now 14th in the NFL in yards per rush with 4.2.Authentic Cameron Erving Jersey
“Like I always say, obviously, believe me, it’s all about improvement,” O’Brien said of his team. “It’s not about where you are in Week 4. You don’t want to be 0-4, really,around Thanksgiving.

Cushing, still has two years remaining on his six-yearAuthentic Jordan Staal jersey a nine-year veteran who has been a stable presence in the middle for Houston no matter the scheme,Authentic Justin Faulk jersey $52.5 million contract. His cap hit of $7.3 million is the fifth-highest on the Texans’ books for 2018.
From a football standpoint,third-year middle linebacker Benardrick McKinney racked up 95 tackles,adidas Sebastian Aho jerseyCushing has played 18 games over the past two seasons due to injuries and suspension. In his absence,adidas Victor Rask jerseythree sacks, forced a fumble and had a pass defensed through 16 starts. Rookie middle linebacker Zach Cunningham had an equally productive season with 82 tackles,Authentic Jonathan Toews jersey, notably in 2017, 1.5 sacks, a forced fumble and six passes defensed through 16 games (13 starts).
Cushing has produced 81 tackles and 1.5 sacks,Even in the past 18 games, about what the team got from McKinney and Cunningham individually this season.adidas Jordan Staal jersey, The difference is it will cost the Texans $8.8 million in 2018 for that level of production versus the $3.1 million total the club would spend on McKinney’s and Cunningham’s salaries combined for 2018.
Houston will have the seventh-most cap room when the new league year of 2018 commences in March. In terms of cap space,The Texans are not exactly cap-strapped. With projected cap room of $56.7 million according to OverTheCap.com, the Texans don’t need to release Cushing.'adidas Justin Faulk jersey,'
However, they need to go through with it. By the time training camp opens in late July, Cushing will be 31 years old. Given he is not the same dynamic middle linebacker he was when Wade Phillips was defensive coordinator, from a roster standpoint, he is a progress stopper to the likes of McKinney and especially Cunningham,adidas Jeff Skinner jersey who could use as many reps as possible heading into his second season.
It is difficult to quantify with dollars how valuable his presence has been in the locker room and in meeting rooms. That is an intangible Cushing still possesses that has yet to be surpassed by McKinney or Cunningham.
“I think that it just brings an energy,Authentic Sebastian Aho jersey a presence,<' an attitude a veteran presence in the meetings,” defensive coordinator Mike Vrabel said on Nov. 30. “It’s just been good to have him back in there talking and visiting with him.”
Receiver DeAndre Hopkins referred to Cushing as “a big brother.”Authentic Victor Rask jersey,
Said Hopkins on Nov. 30: “He’s like a big brother to everybody in this locker room,Authentic Corey Crawford jersey, just his presence alone. It’s good to have him back here.”
Even these reasons may not be enough. After all,adidas Corey Crawford jersey receiver Andre Johnson, the club parted ways with a player 10 times the Texan, who spent his final two seasons with AFC South rivals in the Indianapolis Colts and Tennessee Titans. The team told Johnson he would not be a starter in 2015, and that commenced the process for his departure.adidas Duncan Keith jersey,'
If Cushing believes he can still play at a high level, they should release him as they did Johnson.,adidas Jonathan Toews jersey,
If Cushing wants to contribute for Houston at any level, then perhaps the Texans could rework his contract to create cap space for 2019.

Anderson pushed Williams all the way inside, and Williams ended up on the ground. Mancz and Su'a-Filo initially had Heyward on lock, but Heyward refused to stay blocked.

Hopefully, frustration isn’t skewing anyone’s brainwaves right now. The Seahawks might have missed the playoffs for the first time in six years, but that shouldn’t distract from what they’ve accomplished this decade.
Despite a disappointing season filled with penalty flags and errant field-goal attempts, the Seahawks are still the most successful NFC team of the past six years. And much of that is because of general manager John Schneider. adidas Shane Doan jersey,
It was reported Saturday the Seahawks denied the Packers permission to interview Schneider, who grew up six miles from Lambeau Field. But that doesn’t mean Schneider will stay in Seattle through 2021, when his contract is up.,adidas Ryan Getzlaf jersey,
Green Bay still could acquire Schneider through a trade — potentially giving up draft picks and cash. My advice to the Seahawks: If you’re going to let go of Schneider, you better get the deal of a lifetime.adidas Cam Fowler jersey,
Lord knows that Schneider isn’t perfect, and I’ve been critical of him before. He hasn’t hit pay dirt in the draft for several years and has been particularly off-base in evaluating offensive linemen. There was also the swapping of center Max Unger for tight end Jimmy Graham, who never came close to matching the production that made him a star in New Orleans.

Schneider’s first three drafts might very well have been the best in NFL history.

In Week 11 against the Dallas Cowboys,womens Rashaan Melvin Jersey was caught by Cowboys safety Byron Jones, the Philadelphia Eagles’ newly acquired running back Jay Ajayi broke free on a run (similar to that of Jacksonville’s Leonard Fournette’s), who reached a top speed of 20.41 mph on the play, who ran 22.11 mph in pursuit, with nothing but open field ahead of him. Ajayi,Authentic Jack Doyle Jersey according to Sportradar.
Many players agree that the thrill of the chase provides an extra boost. Might a running back move just a little bit faster knowing that 11 men were trying to smash him to the ground?Measuring the impact of speed no simple featAuthentic Rashaan Melvin Jersey,
It has been proved time and again that football is, as Vince Lombardi said, a game of inches. Teams win or lose based on the smallest of distances. A deep pass glances off a receiver’s fingertips. One or two links of a chain force a team to punt instead of keeping the ball.Authentic Antonio Morrison Jersey,
But football is also a game of speed. And the measurement of that speed can help explain why a deep pass was not caught. Or why a running back was tackled two chain links short of a first down. womens Denzelle Good Jersey

The data, provided here by Sportradar, scout opponents and even call plays. It also helps separate players who have “game speed” from those who merely run fast at the NFL combine.
“Combine speed is overrated,” Los Angeles Rams receiver Tavon Austin said. “It might give you a good look to see what you can run in a straight line,Authentic Deyshawn Bond Jersey, but football’s not played in a straight line.”
At the 2017 combine,Authentic Jeremy Vujnovich Jersey 53 players ran the 40-yard dash faster than Louisiana State’s Leonard Fournette (4.51 seconds). Ten running backs were faster, and wide receiver John Ross set the combine record at 4.22.

Unlike what I predicted in a prior article, Blue outpaced Miller 16 carries to 10 against the Steelers.womens Jimmy Smith Jersey, Alfred Blue yet again received more carries than Lamar Miller. Instead of three more carries against Jacksonville
the Texans passing offense,In this Monday afternoon matchup against the Pittsburgh Steelers, led by “quarterbacks” T.J. Yates and Taylor Heinicke, head coach Bill O’Brien turned to the run game. He specifically went to Alfred Blue, was only able to amass 93 total yards. Because of this inefficiency, who ran 16 times for 108 yards.womens Ryan Jensen Jersey
and the reason that Bill O’Brien has decided to return to him is a combination of two things.womens Jeremy Maclin Jersey,Alfred Blue was the incumbent running back on the Texans before Lamar Miller was signed during free agency in 2016
The first is that Lamar Miller has underperformed his way out of the workhorse role. His 3.7 yards per carry is the lowest mark of his six year career. In addition,073 yards and 5 touchdowns.Authentic Danny Woodhead Jersey, the 851 rushing yards and 3 touchdowns is currently less than last year’s 1
The worst part about this is that he played in only 14 games last year,womens Matt Judon Jerseybut has played in 15 games this year: meaning he ran for approximately 300 more yards and 2 more touchdowns in one less game. This drop off in efficiency has led to Alfred Blue taking the starting role.Authentic Brandon Carr Jersey,
prompting him to want to know what he has in Blue while Lamar Miller continues to decline..Authentic Jimmy Smith Jersey' ,The second reason that O’Brien has decided to hand the reigns to Alfred Blue is that the Texans’ season is lost and nearing an end
The Texans are currently 4-11 after the loss to the Steelers, are well out of playoff contention, and have three different running backs they can use: D’Onta Foreman, Lamar Miller, and Alfred Blue. All these options lead to O’Brien seeing what each of these backs can provide.Authentic Jeremy Maclin Jersey
In the last two games where O’Brien has given him more carries over Miller, Blue combined for 28 carries, 163 yards, and 5.82 yards per carry. Despite the Jaguars being 29th and Steelers 19th in run defense, Blue’s performance may eat into Miller’s workload next season.womens James Hurst Jersey
On top of Blue chipping into Miller’s workload, rookie D’Onta Foreman received an average of seven carries prior to his Week 11 injury. But despite Blue and Foreman getting lots of carries, the one area Miller has consistently dominated is receiving. Foreman and Blue have 101 receiving yards and no touchdowns combined, while Miller has 327 receiving yards and three touchdowns.Authentic Austin Howard Jersey,
Miller had his two largest receiving games; 56 yards and a touchdown against Tennessee and 40 yards against Cleveland.womens Michael Pierce Jersey,The most exciting part about Miller’s efficiency on passing downs is that most of the damage occurred when Deshaun Watson was at the helm. While Deshaun Watson was quarterback
So what do all of these statistics mean?womens Austin Howard Jersey
They give a glimpse at what the Texans running back situation will appear like next season, which seems to be a committee.,Authentic Ryan Jensen Jersey
Since Lamar Miller is declining in terms of rushing, and the duo of D’Onta Foreman and Alfred Blue have received more carries, it looks as if early downs will be a timeshare between the three backs. But on the flip side,Authentic Michael Pierce Jersey Miller’s dominance in the passing game will most likely ensure he keeps that third-down role.womens Brandon Carr Jersey
the possible running back by committee next season may not occur. After all,Despite many signs leaning towards it, there was a reason Miller was signed in 2016. He is considered one of the more reliable running backs in football, consistently rushing for approximately 900 yards and 5 touchdowns every season. He also rarely fumbles,136 carries. And the icing on the cake is he rarely gets injured, only missing 5 games over six seasons, only doing so seven times in 1, which for a running back is extremely durable.womens Danny Woodhead Jersey,'
Blue receiving more carries than Miller could mean something or it could mean nothing.,All being said,Authentic Matt Judon Jersey, But what Texans fans must realize is that the running game they had in Arian Foster is gone,Authentic James Hurst Jersey Alfred Blue, and that they need to envision a future involving Lamar Miller, D’Onta Foreman, or all three of them together.
Landon Collins has an interesting take on what the New York Giants should do with their No. 2 overall pick in the 2018 NFL Draft. Authentic Nevin Lawson Jersey,'
“That’s a big,” Collins said, that’s a tough one. I don’t say it’s a quarterback,womens Tavon Wilson Jersey, via The Daily News. “I’d say we see what we do this offseason. I would say,<a no. I don’t say it’s a quarterback,Authentic Matt Prater Jersey, probably get some help at wide receiver. Get Odell, Brandon Marshall and Sterling and Eli some more options.”
It's not controversial for Collins to advise passing on a quarterback because many Giants fans want the same thing. Some fans are taking a more short-term approach to fixing the roster and want their No. 2 pick to be used on the offensive line,Authentic Glover Quin Jerseyor in a trade to grab more draft picks and assets. However,Authentic Clay Matthews Jerseyon running back Saquon Barkley, you'll be hard-pressed to find many fans who want the franchise to use the top pick on a wide receiver.
Although injuries struck the wide receiver position hard in 2017, leading to communication and timing issues with Eli Manning and his receivers, Brandon Marshall, the position projects to be one of the Giants' strengths heading into the 2018 NFL Draft. Odell Beckham, and Sterling Shepard will all return healthy. Beckham and Marshall missed all but four full games and Shepard only played in a few more full games than them. In addition to his wide receivers, Manning has impressive tight end Evan Engram as a weapon in the passing game.Authentic Tahir Whitehead Jersey,
Speaking of Manning, Collins' opinion that the Giants should not draft a quarterback is partly because he still believes in the 37-year-old veteran leader. Of course, Collins' confidence in a Manning bounceback season relies at least somewhat on the Giants' ability to fix their offensive line this offseason.womens Nevin Lawson Jersey,
"He’s (Manning) not playing up to the level I used to watch him play (at) when I used to watch him on TV and stuff like that. It’s just I would say he needs a line,Authentic Tavon Wilson Jersey,, when he has time in that pocket he can make a defense pay big-time. And that’s what we need,” Collins said. “When Eli has time and everybody sees it, that’s what he needs in front of him.
“I think he has a lot more years left in him,womens Tahir Whitehead Jersey two-time Super Bowl champion>and at the same time it’s Eli Manningwhy not?” He also said his understanding is Manning doesn’t want to go to any other team."
Collins is sure that Manning has no interest in playing elsewhere in 2018.womens Clay Matthews Jersey

Collins also spoke about the Ben McAdoo tenure. He once again defended McAdoo and pointed to just one decision as the reason for his downfall as Giants head coach.womens Matt Prater Jersey
“The team I think was kind of,womens Mike Daniels Jersey, I was pretty upset that he was gone because he’s a great coach. I think what got him out the door was I think when he sat down Eli Manning, it was up-and-down (about McAdoo’s firing). I mean,” Collins said in his first post-season interview.
“But other than that I think he was a great coach, we always saw eye-to-eye. We had our (disagreements),” Collins added of McAdoo. “We always talked, but that’s a player and that’s a coach and you’re gonna have that. But at the same time we came to an agreement where we all had that one common goal.”'Authentic Travis Swanson Jersey

the bottom line is since Denver Broncos kicker Brandon McManus signed his new contract before the season began, Whether it’s really a money matter or not, he has not been nearly as reliable as he was before he put his name on that bottom line.womens D'Onta Foreman Jersey
McManus has missed five kicks in five games.womens Brian Cushing Jersey,McManus missed a 35-yard field goal in Sunday night’s 23-10 loss to the New York Giants and had a 53-yard attempt blocked later in the game. And while he was just another item on a rather long list of things that went wrong in the Broncos' dismal prime-time effort,
he’s already missed as many field goal attempts as he did in the 2015 Super Bowl season when he was 30-of-35 and then 10-of-10 in the playoffs.Authentic Brian Cushing Jersey And this most recent fit of inaccuracy has come in the weeks following his three-year,Or to put it another way, $11.254 million deal that put him among the league’s highest-paid kickers.womens Zach Cunningham Jersey
other than the momentum swings the misses have often caused, is the fact McManus has missed two kicks 35 yards or shorter and that all five of his misses have come at home, where the local altitude is usually kicker-friendly.

McManus has said he doesn’t “have to prove anything" and that the contract has had no bearing on his work in this season’s first six weeks.
