Sam Darnold has been cleared to play this Sunday against the Cowboys.
He was apparently all-but-ready to go against the Eagles, but an ultrasound showed an enlarged spleen, a side-effect of mono, apparently.
GRONK ON FOX NOW!
His first action will be this Thursday during the Thursday Night
It was a fairly long week at school. Cold & flu season has begun in earnest, combined with the calendar making Canadian Thanksgiving a week later than normal. The result was certain of my co-workers taking their sick days earlier than normal, and the site being shortstaffed to the point
Before I begin - a big shoutout to Horatio for helping work up ESPN blowhard Darren Rovell on the Twitter.
That's good enmity.
Jon Gruden has opinions about the injustice of Vontaze Burfict's season-ending suspension:
"I'm not happy about it -- at all. I don't want to say anything else,
Sure, I know the regular season kicks off on Wednesday - get your paragraph previews in to me ASAP please - but for most Canadians the season officially begins the first Saturday of the season, when you hear those magical notes:
AW YEAH BABY! That's like an entire country making babies
The Seahawks traded Nick Vannett to the Steelers for a fifth-round pick in 2020.
The Steelers were down a tight end after Vance McDonald hurt himself against the Niners.
The trade gives the Seahawks an expected 10 picks in the 2020 draft.
The Seahawks then signed Raiders castoff
I hope you've enjoyed staying up late / waking up early to watch the Rugby World Cup LIVE! from Japan.
Having attended the Rugby World Sevens last year in San Francisco, I can only imagine the bacchanalia. BeerBrother, who works for a Japanese company, said that all travel to head office
Andrew Luck updates:
The Colts are letting him keep his bonus money from the last contract signing.
It amounts to $16.8 million, since he had three years left on the five-year extension he signed in 2016.
There are rumours that Jim Irsay has known for a (little) while
So last Saturday, I went to Paul McCartney. It was fantastic.
As usual, there was the attraction of the merch table, as well as what to do with the ticket stub. Now, as a guy, I like to "hold onto" things until I "know where to put it". That can result
Tonight, for the hockey game meal, it's pulled pork. I had to fight through the "honeydo" list earlier today, so I've earned me some quality meats.
I started it in the slow cooker for about 4 hours, and then transfer that bad boy to the grill. Keeping the temperature about 250°
There's no need for a long introduction or rambling adventure through my past. It's playoff season, baby, and focus should be on the watching, not the whimsy.
I would be remiss, however, if I didn't point out that the Game 1s so far pretty much blew up my predictions from Tuesday
The window is starting to close for the Eagles now that they are talking a long-term extension for Carson Wentz.
Much like how Russell Wilson's pay raise ended things for the Seahawks, this only gives the Eagles a couple more years before they have to start shedding salary.
I realize it's pedantic, but I'm not fond of my workplace switch from four- to five days per week. I got really comfortable having those Fridays off. It's not that the six total hours of commitment is egregious, it's just that it interrupts the relaxation of the day. I miss
