Stitched Cheap Football Nike Jerseys Miami Dolphins Ryan Tannehill Kids Discount Quick Shipping 2019

DAVIE, Fla. — Quarterback Ryan Tannehill has been ruled out Sunday versus the Detroit Lions, and the NFL has opened an investigation into how the Miami Dolphins reported his shoulder injury, a source confirmed to ESPN.

Brock Osweiler, who threw for a career-high 380 yards in a 31-28 overtime victory over the Bears, will start for the second consecutive week. Dolphins coach Adam Gase said he’s not sure whether Tannehill will be able to play at Houston on Oct. 25.

“Anything that has to do with pocket movement, footwork, things like that, he can do everything,” Gase said Wednesday. “He just can’t throw.”

Tannehill participated in practice on a limited basis Wednesday. He worked on footwork and handed the football off with his right (throwing) arm, but he did not throw during the open viewing period. The Dolphins (4-2) plan to ensure he’s healthy and ready to react to the stresses of throwing before putting him back out there, Gase said. Rest has been the recovery recommendation for Tannehill.

Osweiler said he feels ready.

“Getting reps with the first-team offense and building some relationships out there in practice is huge. It’s very beneficial,” Osweiler said.

Gase said Monday he was “not sure” whether Tannehill faces a long-term injury, but he said he has complete confidence that the 30-year-old quarterback will play again in 2018. When asked about Tannehill’s situation, Gase quickly interjected, “Yes, he will be the starter” when he’s healthy.

Regarding prominent players, particularly starting quarterbacks, the NFL routinely investigates injury reporting. The NFL will gather details of how Tannehill went from full practice participant last Wednesday and Thursday to limited participant/questionable on Friday to out on Sunday, and see whether Miami adhered to the league policy.

Tannehill was made a surprise scratch for Sunday’s game versus Chicago. The Dolphins say his right shoulder injury got “progressively worse” throughout the week.

Gase said Monday he believes Tannehill injured his right shoulder during a Week 5 loss, on a fourth-quarter forced fumble by Cincinnati Bengals defensive end Carlos Dunlap. Tannehill’s arm was hit awkwardly from behind before he completed his throwing motion, and he was on the ground for a few moments after the play.

The NFL policy says this about injury reporting: “The policy requires that teams provide credible, accurate and specific information about injured players to the league office, their opponents, local and national media, and the league’s broadcast partners each week during the regular season and postseason. The reporting process is of paramount importance in maintaining the integrity of the game.”

It also refers directly to the practice and game status reports, which must provide clubs and fans with an accurate description of a player’s injury status/availability and how much he participated in practice during the week.

It says this specifically about game status reporting: “Teams must notify the league, their opponent, local and national media, and the league’s broadcast partners of the status of their injured players by 4 p.m. ET the day before their next scheduled game.”
The term “normal repetitions” applies to a player’s participation in both individual drills and the team portion of practice. Consequently, a player who participates in less than 100 percent of his normal repetitions during either the individual or team portion of practice should be listed as “Limited Participation.”

Tannehill was listed as a full participant Thursday despite Gase later saying Osweiler took some of his first-team reps. Tannehill was also listed as questionable up until game time, despite ESPN and other reports labeling him as more “doubtful” than questionable. These are two of the issues that will need to be answered by the Dolphins. It’s worth noting that these investigations regularly result in no penalty if the NFL is satisfied with the answers it receives.

The Miami Herald was the first to report the NFL’s investigation.

Cheap Wholesale China Stitched NFL Nike Jerseys Washington Redskins D.J. Swearinger White Womens Quick Shipping

ASHBURN, Va. — Washington Redskins safety D.J. Swearinger texted his defensive back teammates Tuesday night with a simple message: Don’t let Drew Brees set the record. The responses? A series of exclamation points.

The New Orleans Saints quarterback is 201 yards from surpassing Peyton Manning as the NFL’s all-time career passing yardage leader. Certainly the schedule makers anticipated a big night, with this game being played on Monday night.

“We don’t want to see this happen at all,” Swearinger said.

Swearinger was part of a record-breaking game in the past. In 2013, Manning threw his NFL-record 51st touchdown pass of the season vs. Swearinger’s Houston Texans. In fact, Swearinger was the safety on the side of the field where Demaryius Thomas caught the 36-yard TD pass.

“I don’t want to be part of two quarterbacks breaking a record,” Swearinger said. “It’s not a good feeling on a defensive side when a quarterback breaks the record on your defense.”

Swearinger reminded the Redskins’ defensive backs that they’re allowing an average of 187 passing yards per game. So, he said, all they need is to have an average game when it comes to yards allowed and Brees would have to wait another week. But to make that happen, they’ll have to play an above-average game.

Keep in mind that Brees hasn’t thrown for fewer than 200 yards in a loss since 2013 in a Week 13 game vs. Seattle. He threw for 147 that day, averaging 3.69 yards per attempt. The Redskins nearly held him to fewer than 200 yards in a 2015 victory, but Brees still managed 209. There were two games in which Brees threw for fewer than 200 yards last season, but both were in blowout victories. That’s not what the Redskins want to see, either.

“Drew Brees is a great quarterback, a Hall of Famer in my eyes,” Redskins linebacker Mason Foster said. “He’s going to break that record sooner or later anyways. Everybody knows that. Our big thing is to limit big plays and win the game.”

The Redskins did a solid job against Brees last season — for three quarters, holding him to 202 passing yards. But he finished with 385, throwing for 183 yards in the final quarter and overtime of the Week 11 game as the Saints rallied from a 15-point deficit with less than six minutes remaining to win 34-31.

The Redskins disguised some coverages well enough to take away big plays for most of the game. They also tried to rush with four most of the time, doing so on 32 of his 42 dropbacks. That enabled them to play with seven in coverage. But that defense was banged up, with multiple starters unavailable because of injury. The Redskins’ line is much better with rookie Daron Payne and Jonathan Allen, who was one of the players out because of injury last November.

“I couldn’t care less about it,” Redskins corner Quinton Dunbar said of the record. “If we go out there and take care of business and execute and compete, then it won’t happen. Obviously, if it doesn’t, then it means we’re having a great game. But I’m not waking up with stress on my mind, saying, ‘Hey, man, I have to stop Brees from getting [201].’ No, man, I’m focused on the Washington Redskins.’”

Stopping Brees means controlling his favorite targets, such as receiver Michael Thomas and running back Alvin Kamara. Those two combined for 165 yards on 12 catches in last year’s game.

“You can see on film, if he doesn’t go to his first two targets, he’s going to throw to his checkdown almost blind because he always knows where he is,” Swearinger said. “That’s where a lot of his yards come with Kamara. He turns a 3-yard pass into a 13-yard gain. Drew getting to the checkdown so fast is what makes him different.”


His career total of 71,740 passing yards makes him different, too. Redskins coach Jay Gruden said, “Hopefully he doesn’t get it.” But that’s also not his concern — and he knows how hard it is to hold Brees to a low yardage total. He rattled off Brees’ strengths: accuracy, anticipation, pocket skills.

“He gets on his tiptoes and he sees the field extremely well,” Gruden said. “It’s very important for us to disguise our intent and try to get after him as best we can. If he has time to see the field and read what your intent is on defense, he’ll find an open guy. That’s what he’s best at. He gets in unique formations, shows your hand and he gets into the right play.”

Too many right plays, regardless of yardage total, will spoil the Redskins’ night.

“I told the guys we need to do everything we can to stop him from getting 200 yards,” Swearinger said. “It should be real fun. Stay tuned. We’ll be ready.”
