The Bills got their man, quarterback Josh Allen, by trading up to the seventh overall pick in the draft. But they wanted to trade up higher.
Shazier was immobilized on a backboard, carted off the field, and taken to a Cincinnati hospital.
Steelers coach Mike Tomlin did not have an update on Shazier’s status after the game.
This is a tough game, tough business, Tomlin said. 5-0 (Shazier) is our brother.
My elbow is feeling much better. It feels good, Rutgers linebacker Trevor Morris told NJ Advance Media in his first comments since dislocating his elbow during spring practice . I’m very happy with where I’m at. I’m hoping to get right back to where I was, if not better, this coming season.
Morris is out of his sling after suffering the injury in April’s final spring scrimmage. Morris then sat out the final week of practices and the Scarlet-White spring game . Head coach Chris Ash said at the time he anticipated Morris would be ready for the start of training camp in August, and nothing has altered that expectation. The injury did not require surgery.
Just a lot of rest, a lot of recovery, Morris said. I should be back to 100 percent.
Morris, a King of Prussia, Pennsylvania, native, has been Rutgers’ weakside linebacker the last two seasons. He’s posted back-to-back 100-tackle seasons with 118 in 2017, the second-most in the conference . When Morris entered the Scarlet Knights’ starting lineup in 2016, he was a bright spot for a struggling position group. The linebacker corps has since become one of the team’s deepest units.
(Pittsburgh fans who lived in the D.C. area, of course, could still break through this firewall.) “I got a lot of emails from Pittsburgh saying I was mean-spirited and unfair. I don’t care. I’m going to keep doing it,” Leonsis told the Washington Post. While the practice of teams protecting home ice is more commonplace today, it was seen as a petty reaction to the Penguins’ popularity at the time.
