Thursday, the reports were confirmed by ESPN’s Adam Schefter.
Winston is preparing for a suspension that would last as long as three weeks.
Eagles cornerback Ronald Darby was with Winston during the alleged incident, but he’s in no danger of being suspended, a person with knowledge of the situation told NJ Advance Media.
My reaction, not to what they said, but that that’s where we find ourselves here is sadness frankly, Silver said. A bit of resignation. But I don’t think it should take away from the fact that these players in our league, our coaches, are speaking out on issues that are important to them and important to society. I think, I encourage them to continue to do that and on top of that, maybe more importantly, look at the things they’re doing in their communities.
Maybe Goodell and the NFL believe they should take the high road with Trump, that getting into the sewer only gets them dirty.
That isn’t the Goodell from the past, though. The old Goodell would have had a lot to say.
When they just go up there and then don’t snap it right away, you say, well, we’ll hold our disguise, Arians explained last November, via Philly.com. And then they snap it [quickly], and you’d better be able to play defense out of your disguise. I think it’s really smart coaching.
While defenses search in vain for counter-strategies, McVay is back in the lab concocting innovations to push his team toward the promised land in his second season.
[McVay] is like Greg Maddux, Orlovsky attested, where he doesn’t necessarily overpower you, but you have no idea what’s coming and he’ll make you look silly.
Max Kepler (L), 38 percent, Minnesota Twins vs. Texas Rangers (RHP Yovani Gallardo): Sure, it’s a small sample, but it’s hard to get past the fact that Gallardo has allowed 13 runs in just 7 1/3 innings this season with more walks (7) than strikeouts (6). Needless to say, this is a hurler I want to get some exposure against on Saturday. Fire up Kepler, who gets the platoon advantage in a very enticing matchup.
