Crabtree likely to miss preseason opener; Lattimore has a spot

Thanks to a contract holdout (2009), a neck injury (2010), foot surgery (2011) and an Achilles tear (2013), 49ers wide receiver Michael Crabtree hasn’t played in a preseason game in four of his first five NFL seasons. So this shouldn’t come as a surprise: Crabtree will likely miss the preseason opener Thursday in Baltimore because of an apparent leg injury he sustained in practice...

Jets sign free-agent Galiardi

The Winnipeg Jets have signed another free-agent forward, inking left-winger T.J. Galiardi. The 26-year-old Calgary native played last season for the hometown Flames, recording four goals and 17 points in 62 games, though he was a healthy scratch numerous times.

Goodell on suspensions for Dolphins harassers: It’s a broad issue

NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell spoke to reporters in Canton, Ohio on Friday and much of the focus was on the league’s much-criticized two-game suspension for Ravens running back Ray Rice. Goodell answered questions on other topics, however. The fallout from the Dolphins’ 2013 harassment of tackle Jonathan Martin and others was one such topic. Goodell was asked if there would...

Jim Harbaugh says it’s “refreshing” to table contract talk

The 49ers have tabled their contracts talks with coach Jim Harbaugh, and the owner has said they’re not apparently far apart on money. But as to the cessation of talks, Harbaugh turned it into a positive, saying he didn’t want a new contract with two years left on his contract. “Isn’t it refreshing?” Harbaugh said, via Matt Maiocco of CSNBayArea.com. “It has to be refreshing...

Talib not worried about emphasis on fouls against receivers

The last time the NFL made defensive holding and illegal contact with receivers a point of emphasis in 2004, the number of flags thrown for both fouls increased from 79 to 191. Broncos cornerback Aqib Talib doesn’t believe this year’s emphasis on those fouls will result in a similar uptick.

Cary Williams on Patriots: 'They are cheaters'

Later this month, the Eagles will head to Foxboro for a series of joint practices against the Patriots leading up to their preseason game. Last year, the Patriots came to Philly for the same purpose. Eagles cornerback Cary Williams made it clear Friday that he’s no fan of practicing against other teams, especially the Patriots, the culprits of the “Spygate” scandal. “They...

Joe Kelly, Allen Craig found out about trade to Red Sox through media

Before the trade deadline Thursday, the Cardinals swung a pretty significant deal with the Red Sox, sending Joe Kelly and Allen Craig to Boston for John Lackey. St. Louis needed some more reliability in the rotation and, as an added bonus, the deal opened a full-time lineup spot for top prospect Oscar Taveras. Unfortunately, because we live in a world where information spreads instantly...

MLB: 'Catcher did not provide a lane' during play in Reds-Marlins game

During the eighth inning of Thursday night's Reds-Marlins game (CIN 3, MIA 1), Todd Frazier flew into what was initially called an inning-ending double play with the bases loaded and one out.

It hasn't been a good preseason for Jaguars wide receivers so far

At some point soon, it won't matter much if Chad Henne wins the Jaguars starting quarterback job or if, somehow, No. 3 overall pick Blake Bortles changes his team's mind about making him the backup for his rookie season. That's because if Jacksonville's receiver injuries keep piling up, there won't be anybody to throw to anyway. With Ace Sanders suspended for...

Roger Goodell: Ray Rice's punishment consistent with NFL discipline

Roger Goodell finally took questions on the Ray Rice issue Friday at the Pro Football Hall of Fame. Not surprisingly, Goodell seems perfectly content with his decision to suspend the Ravens back for two games following a domestic incident in February with his now-wife. "We have a very firm policy that domestic violence is not acceptable in the NFL." Goodell told reporters...

Former teammates weigh in on NOLA addition of Omer Asik

The usage of analytics to evaluate NBA players has made incredible strides in recent years, gaining near-universal acceptance, but the data still has a ways to go before it can accurately measure every aspect of the game. Case in point: 7-foot, 255-pound center Omer Asik, who was traded to New Orleans from Houston this summer. In 103 career starts, all but two with the Rockets,...

Bersin has legitimate shot to make roster

Carolina Panthers wide receiver Brenton Bersin can be easily found on most days by looking for the long, blond locks flowing from the back of his helmet. He's even easier to find these days on the field. With first-round draft pick Kelvin Benjamin rehabbing a bruised left knee suffered on Sunday, Bersin is lining up with starters Jerricho Cotchery and Jason Avant when the team...

Mystery at the middle linebacker spot continues

We’re a week into training camp, and the only clarity we have when it comes to the Vikings’ vacant middle linebacker position is that Chad Greenway probably isn’t going to be that guy. Head coach Mike Zimmer has moved him back to the outside exclusively so he can settle in on the weak side. So who is in the running to be the Mike? It depends on the down, distance and situation...
