R.J. Umberger scored twice to lead the Blue Jackets to a franchise-record for consecutive wins with a 5-3 victory Tuesday night over the Los Angeles Kings. Manu Ginobili Jersey . The scientists believe the small earthquake during a Marshawn Lynch touchdown was likely greater than Lynchs famous "beast quake" touchdown run three years ago, which also came against New Orleans during a playoff game. https://www.spurslockerroom.com/Marco-Belinelli-City-Edition-Jersey/ . Isner, ranked No. 14, won his eighth career singles title and took the title in New Zealand for the second time after his victory in 2010. The match was similar to Isners quarterfinal victory over fifth-seeded Philipp Kohlschreiber which went to three sets, all tiebreaks and contained no breaks of serve. ARLINGTON, Texas -- Dak Prescott will start against Cleveland after the rookie quarterback looked like Tony Romo in rallying Dallas past Philadelphia in the fourth quarter and overtime for his sixth straight win.Thats what Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said after the 29-23 victory against the Eagles that put Dallas two games up in the NFC East.Hold on a minute, though. Jones wasnt saying Prescott is taking Romos job. The owner simply said the Cowboys 10-year starter wont be ready Sunday at Cleveland as he works his way back into shape after breaking a bone in his back in the preseason.My opinion is that we would want him to have more strength and work done, Jones said Sunday night. Hes really doing well, probably as well as anytime last year as far as aspects of strength in his back is concerned, but hes got some more to do.So the Cowboys (6-1) can continue to delay the question of what happens when Romo is ready. But with Prescott having a good shot at a seventh straight victory against the winless Browns, its unlikely that the issue will get any less complicated.Prescott has won games coming from behind and comfortably leading. He played well in his only loss, by a point to the New York Giants in the opener.What was impressive about his latest outing was how unimpressive Prescott was most of the game. The 23-year-old bounced multiple throws and tossed an end-zone interception -- just his second pick of the season -- that ended up putting Dallas behind at halftime.Yet he found a way to get even with a 22-yard touchdown throw to Dez Bryant late in regulation to cap a 90-yard drive, and led a winning 75-yard march to start the extra period, capped by a 5-yard scoring pass to Jason Witten.Once again, he showed all the attributes that have had his coaches and teammates raving for weeks.Im not going to stop, said Prescott, who completed all five passes in overtime to finish 19 of 39 for 287 yards. I dont care how bad I play early on. I dont care what I do. Im not going to give up.Prescotts mobility is noteworthy as well, particularly with Romo looking less and less mobile as the back injuries (four in less than four years) pile up. The injury in a preseason game at Seattle came when Romo tried to escape the pocket and was tackled awkwardly from behind.In the win over the Eagles, the Cowboys got their first touchdown on a zone read when Prescott kept and scored untouched from 7 yards. Trey Lyles Jersey. It was his fourth rushing TD, the most for a Dallas quarterback since Danny White had four in 1983. The franchise record for a quarterback is five.On the tying drive in regulation, Prescott had a 12-yard scramble that was yet another example of a play the 36-year-old Romo likely cant make anymore.Or as Jones would put it, he looked like a younger Romo, including on the winning throw to Witten when Prescott spun to his left and created enough confusion for the defense to leave Witten wide open in the end zone.All of that reminded me of what weve had the luxury with Romo for years and years, Jones said. What I did see him do that were not used to is tuck that ball in and make some significant gains running the ball. Thats what you get with him.What coach Jason Garrett gets is a controversy, regardless of whether he wants to acknowledge it, which he hasnt.After Cleveland (0-8), the Cowboys visit Pittsburgh before consecutive home games against Baltimore and Washington. The Redskins visit on Thanksgiving, which will mark a year since Romos last game.That wasnt a pretty game either. In his second game back from a broken left collarbone, Romo threw three interceptions in the first half, two returned for touchdowns by Carolina. And he broke his left collarbone again in the third quarter of the 33-14 loss.Were a close group of guys, said rookie running back Ezekiel Elliott, who had a four-game streak of 100-yard games snapped, finishing with 96. Were not going to let anything come between us.But a test is coming in the form of lots of quarterback talk.Game notes Executive vice president of personnel Stephen Jones said on his radio show that safety Barry Church will miss three to five weeks with a broken arm, and oft-injured cornerback Morris Claiborne is being evaluated from a possible sports hernia that could sideline him long term.---AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and AP NFL Twitter feed: http://twitter.com/AP-NFL---Follow Schuyler Dixon on Twitter at https://twitter.com/apschuyler ' ' '

GREENSBORO, N. Dejounte Murray Jersey .C. -- The Atlantic Coast Conference selected new sites for eight of the championships it will move from North Carolina because of a law that restricts the rights of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people.Four championships are moving to Georgia, three more are headed to South Carolina and another is set for Kentucky, the league announced Tuesday.The moves were made in response to a North Carolina law that excludes gender identity and sexual orientation from local and statewide anti-discrimination protections. It also requires transgender people to use restrooms at schools and government buildings corresponding to the sex on their birth certificates.Four ACC events are headed to Georgia: Womens and mens swimming and diving (Atlanta) and womens and mens tennis (Rome). South Carolina gets womens soccer (Charleston), womens golf (Pawleys Island) and mens golf (Clinton). The baseball tournament is moving from Durham to Louisville, Kentucky.In response to the law, the NCAA pulled several championship events from the state last month -- including the first- and second-round mens basketball tournament games scheduled for Greensboro -- and the ACC followed suit days later.The ACC had said it would move 10 neutral-site championships out of North Carolina because of the law.Last week, the league awarded this seasons football championship game to Orlando, Florida. The latest announcement addresses every sport affected by the relocation decision except womens basketball.League spokesman Steve Phillips says that site has not yet been determined.

The giants of golf need stages big enough to accommodate the outsize deeds that define them. Brad Wieck Cubs Jersey .For Jack Nicklaus, those stages were Augusta National, where he won six Masters titles; the Old Course at St. Andrews, where he won two British Opens; and a less-heralded course about 20 miles west of lower Manhattan.Baltusrol Golf Club in Springfield Township, New Jersey, has its own history. Its two courses were designed by A.W. Tillinghast just two years after Tillinghast was present at the 1916 founding of the Professional Golfers Association (PGA).Bobby Jones played on Tillinghasts course in Springfield. So did Ben Hogan and Arnold Palmer and, later, Phil Mickelson and Tiger Woods.The present greats of the game -- including Jason Day, Dustin Johnson and Jordan Spieth -- are scheduled to appear at Baltusrol for the PGA Championship, which starts Thursday. They will try to make their own golf history on a course where its still possible to hear echoes of past legends.Jones.Hogan.Palmer.But mostly Nicklaus, whose legend was established and reinforced on the Lower Course at Baltusrol.Is it the toughest of the golf courses? Probably not, Nicklaus told ESPN.com recently. Is the quality of golf as good? Its a matter of debate, but I think its very good. They are all different. As they say, beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Since Ive won multiple victories at Augusta National, St. Andrews and Baltusrol, all three of them are fantastic golf courses to me.Nicklaus won two U.S. Open championships at Baltusrol, one as an in-his-prime 27-year-old in 1967 and one as a fading 40-year-old in 1980. Each of those titles served as significant mileposts on Nicklaus journey from Ohio to golfs Mount Rushmore.White Fang and a 1-ironIn 1967, Nicklaus was viewed by many golf fans as an unwelcome challenger to Palmers unquestioned eminence. The two had dueled on courses all around the world, all through the 1960s. In the U.S. Open at Baltusrol, Nicklaus put the matter to rest. And he did so in historic, unforgettable fashion.Nicklaus earned that championship, his seventh career major, by playing four rounds of consistently brilliant golf. His secret weapon was a putter that hed possessed for only a few days. It had belonged to a man named Fred Mueller, who was friends with touring pro (and future PGA Tour commissioner) Deane Beman.Nicklaus wasnt happy with his putting during a practice round. Beman suggested trying White Fang, an old Bulls Eye putter that Mueller had painted white. Nicklaus figured it was worth a shot. He tried a few putts with it and liked it, but decided he wanted to improve the grip. Nicklaus talked about that putter and the 1967 U.S. Open during an interview conducted by the PGA last year.I remember Deane putting a pencil down behind the grip and making a pistol grip, he said. He broke the pencil off. We wound the leather around the shaft, and that was my putter grip.Using the putter, Nicklaus played well enough to win the U.S. Open. But it was another club, a 1-iron, that elevated Nicklaus performance to the realm of legendary.Nicklaus and Palmer were paired together for the final round. The pair, along with defending champion Billy Casper, entered Sunday tied for second, one shot behind then-amateur Marty Fleckman. By the time Nicklaus and Palmer approached the 18th hole, the tournament belonged to Nicklaus. He had a three-shot lead on Palmer. More than that, though, he had a chance to break Hogans record for best score in a U.S. Open.To break the record, Nicklaus needed a birdie on the final hole. That wasnt looking too promising when he hit his tee shot into some rough. The ball landed in a rut that had been left behind by a golf cart.I had to chop it out of there, Nicklaus said. Didnt chop it very far -- left myself with 237 yards or something like that into the green, uphill, into the wind, with an approaching thunderstorm.Nicklaus decided to use his 1-iron, figuring it was his best shot to get the ball onto the green and give himself a chance to break Hogans record.So I hit it and I just nailed it, Nicklaus said. I pushed it just a touch, hit it right over the bunker and onto the green. I made about a 22-foot putt to break Hogans record. And I won by four over Arnold.That was a great tournament for me. I played well. It was a love affair with Baltusrol.Jack is backIt was a love affair that wasnt really reciprocated until 1980. By the time he got to that years U.S. Open at Baltusrol, Nicklaus hadnt won a tournament in almost two years. He had failed to make the cut the week before.In 1980, I worked harder than ever to get my game back, and I was rewarded for it, Nicklaus told ESPN.com. Obviously, I played very well in 1967. I broke Hogans record and beat Arnold coming down the stretch. Both were very good, but 1980 was my fourth [win at the] U.S. Open, and I think it was pretty special.Nicklaus played brilliantly in 1980. He shot a 63 on the first day. So did Tom Weiskopf, but Weiskopf shot 75 or higher on each of the next three days. Nicklaus remained locked in. Going into the final day, he was tied with Isao Aoki.Nicklaus shot a 68, beating Aoki by two strokes. His total of 272 for the tournament was a U.S. Open record that has since been matched but not surpassed. Nicklaus fourth U.S. Open title tied him with Hogan, Jones and Willie Anderson for most at the event.This time around, the crowd showed Nicklaus the appreciation he hadnt experienced back in 1967. Then, Arnies Army held up signs telling Fat Jack to hit the ball into the rough. Palmer got roars of approval, while Nicklaus, the usurper, got only polite applause.But 1980 was different. As Nicklaus walked up the final fairway, he heard chants from the gallery: Jack is back, Jack is back.Stuart Wolffe, now Baltusrols official historian, was in the crowd as a teenage fan in 1980. He remembers chanting and then seeing the scoreboard light up with the words: Jack is back.Nicklaus won two more major championships after the 1980 U.S. Open, completing his record 18 career majors.Do I think it could have been more? Yes, he said. But could it probably have been less? Yes. When you have 19 seconds and nine third-place finishes -- with that many times sitting at the gate and the chance to win -- you look back and say, Gee, I had quite a few more I could have won, but I didnt.Im proud of my record. I think most records will get broken at one time or another, and I dont imagine this will be any different.Nicklaus still had some great golf left in him in 1980, but an awful lot of great golf was behind him, and it had become intertwined with so much of the games history. When Nicklaus broke Hogans record in 1967, Hogan was still playing. He was at Baltusrol for that tournament and finished tied for 34th.It took a U.S. Open record for Nicklaus to outduel Palmer in 1967 and another record to top Aoki in 1980. A quarter-century later, during the 2005 PGA Championship, Phil Mickelson had a chance to put the tournament away on Baltusrols 18th hole. Before his second shot, Mickelson reached out with his 4-wood and tapped a plaque that commemorates the spot of Nicklaus famous 1-iron in 1967.Mickelson won, and the long line of Baltusrol history -- of golf history -- remained unbroken.From my perspective and on my list, sure, Baltusrol is on a level with Augusta National and St. Andrews, Nicklaus said.A giant needs a worthy stage, and for Nicklaus, Baltusrol was just that.

Every day Im flooded with messages from Indians all over the world telling me they are supporting me.

Its just been going good from the start, from the first game on. I think thats a big part of hockey, when you get confidence, it seems to be going out there and not thinking and good things happen.Dan Girardi also scored to help the Rangers win for the seventh time in eight games -- including two victories against the Oilers.I thought we came out real well, moved the puck, got some quality opportunities and scored a couple of goals, New York coach Alain Vigneault said. After that, there was no doubt they had a real strong push and I thought for the most part our goaltender made some big saves and our guys battled through back-to-back games.Andrej Sekera scored for Edmonton and Cam Talbot finished with 24 saves. The Oilers have lost three straight to fall to 2-5-1 since starting the season 7-1-0.That confidence and swagger we had in the first eight games seems to get away from us a little bit, Oilers forward Milan Lucic said. We havent had it in the last eight games.Things arent always going to go smoothly. We have to stick together as a team and go back to having fun playing the right way.Grabner got New York on the scoreboard just 1:20 in, getting to a big rebound and scoring his ninth of the season. It was the fifth time in seven games the Oilers allowed a goal in the first two minutes.Girardi made it 2-0 with 6:42 left in the firrst as the Rangers had an extra attacker on for a delayed penalty and the defenseman redirected Kevin Hayes pass past Talbot from in front of the net. Adbert Alzolay Jersey. Edmonton pulled within one with 1:15 left in the opening period when Connor McDavid spotted a pinching Sekera swooping past the Rangers net and he deflected a shot past Raanta.Grabner scored again with five minutes left in the second when Ryan Nugent-Hopkins gave up the puck at the New York blue line. Talbot made the initial stop, but Grabner was able to swat in the rebound.Edmonton had good pressure in the third period, but Raanta shut the door.We had a lot of players missing in action, Oilers coach Todd McLellan said.Game notes It was the second and final meeting of the season between the two teams. The Rangers won 5-3 in the previous meeting at home on Nov. ... Raanta got the start in net for the Rangers after Henrik Lundqvist played the night before in a 4-1 win at Calgary.

OXFORD, Miss. Cheap Air Max 97 Wholesale . -- No. 19 Mississippi got exactly what it needed Saturday in a relatively boring, lopsided victory.Playing just five days after an emotional loss to Florida State, quarterback Chad Kelly threw for 219 yards and three touchdowns to lead the Rebels to a 38-13 victory over Wofford of the Football Championship Subdivision level.Ole Miss (1-1) didnt look tired despite the short turnaround, scoring on all four of its first-half drives to take a 24-3 halftime lead. The Rebels didnt need to punt until late in the third quarter when the game was well in hand.I thought our kids came out with an edge, Ole Miss coach Hugh Freeze said. Especially on offense.Kelly completed short touchdown throws in the first half to Markell Pack, D.K. Metcalf and Quincy Adeboyejo, and Gary Wunderlich made a 40-yard field goal as the Rebels methodically moved the ball against the overmatched Terriers.It was an efficient, mistake-free performance from Kelly, who threw three interceptions and lost a fumble in the Florida State loss. He completed 20 of 27 passes against Wofford.We were anxious to get that first win, Kelly said.The only bad news for the Rebels was when Metcalf, a 6-foot-4 freshman who has quickly earned a role as one of the teams top receivers, broke his left foot in the second quarter. He also caught a touchdown pass in the Florida State game.Freeze said he wasnt sure how much time Metcalf would miss, but its possible the injury could end his season.Ole Miss has already struggled with injuries this year. Starting cornerback Kendarius Webster and running back Eric Swinney both tore knee ligaments in the Florida State game and are done for the season.Ole Miss announced a crowd of 64,232, which is a stadium record. The Rebels spent about $60 million on offseason renovations to Vaught-Hemingway Stadium, which included roughly 5,000 new seats after bowling in the north side of the stadium.Wofford (1-1) moved the ball effectively at times, but couldnt find the end zone until the fourth quarter, when quarterback Brad Butler ran for a 17-yard touchdown.SAVING PATTERSON?Freeze pulled a minor surprise on Saturday when he used redshirt freshman Jason Pellerin as the backup quarterback instead of true freshman Shea Patterson. The 6-foot-4, 230-pound Pellerin completed 2 of 3 passes for 23 yards, one touchdown and one interception. He also ran for a touchdown.Patterson was widely regarded as one of the nations top quarterback recruits last year, but Freeze left open the possibility that Patterson might redshirt this fall in order to save him for future seasons when Kelly, a senior, is no longer with the program.Hes certainly talented enough to play, Freeze said. But we discussed it this week, and playing him in mop-up duty is probably not the smartest thing at this juncture.QUOTABLEWofford coach Mike Ayres, who is in his 29th season leading the program, had a unique way of describing his teams growth so far this season: Were close. Were like that fat guy thats got one leg over the fence and hes close. Hes working to get that second leg over. Its tough, but its not quite there. Thats where we are. We didnt have a great day.THE TAKEAWAYWofford: The Terriers triple-option offense was decent, but finding the end zone was difficult against an SEC defense. Wofford has a 1-19 record against Football Bowl Subdivision teams.Ole Miss: The Rebels got what they needed -- an easy win. Now they can turn their attention to a marquee SEC game against Alabama in Oxford next weekend.UP NEXTWofford: The Terriers return home to face Johnson C. Smith.Ole Miss: The Rebels host Alabama after beating the Tide in each of the past two seasons.-----Follow David Brandt on Twitter: www.twitter.com/davidbrandtAP .

NEWARK, N.J. -- Sheldon Jeter cant quite put his finger on why Pitt is giving up second half leads. Fortunately, he and the Panthers can continue to look for answers after a victory.Michael Young had 29 points and nine rebounds as Pittsburgh held on to defeat Penn State 81-73 on Saturday in the Never Forget Tribute Classic.To Pitt coach Kevin Stallings, it was d?j? vu.That looked like a lot of our games to me so far this year to me, Stallings said. Really good play on both ends in the first half. Second half, offensive play was probably good enough. Defensive play was not very good.Jamel Artis had 16 points and eight rebounds, Cameron Johnson scored 10 and Jeter added eight points, 10 rebounds and five blocked shots for Pitt.A 3-pointer by Ryan Luther gave the Panthers (8-2) a 50-26 lead with 16:50 to play but Penn State used an 11-2 run to trim its deficit to 15 about four minutes later. Shep Garner scored four points during a 6-0 spurt that pulled the Nittany Lions within five with 1:50 left but Jeter answered with a 3-pointer and they would get no closer.Sheldon is a great team guy.He probably hit the biggest shot of the game. They had the moment and he jumped up and he stuck that three in from the corner there, Stallings said. Biggest shot of the game probably for us.Mike Watkins had 17 points and a career-high 15 rebounds, while Tony Carr and Payton Banks scored 13 points apiece for Penn State (6-5). Garner added 12.A tale of two halves, Penn State coach Patrick Chambers said.. China Wholesale Air Max 90. Not sure where we were in the first half. Maybe the bus was late. But we showed up in the second half and competed like a Penn State basketball game.BIG PICTUREPenn State: After George Mason snapped Penn States four-game winning streak, the Nittany Lions have lost two in a row for the second time this season. Penn State had lost to No. 1 Duke and No. 24 CincinnatiPitt: Young has led the Panthers in scoring in the past nine games, and came in to the contest ranked 17th in the country in scoring, averaging 22.3 points per game.UP NEXTPenn State: After a week off, the Nittany Lions will remain on the road when they travel to Madison Square Garden to face St. Johns next Sunday before closing out their non-conference schedule at home against Morgan State.Pitt: The Panthers return to the court next Saturday to face Rice at 7 p.m. to begin a five-game home stand.HITTING FROM 3Pitt went 10 of 22 (45.5 percent) from beyond the arc while Penn State hit only 6 of 22 shots from 3-point rangeFIRST TIME IN A LONG SERIESPenn State and Pitt met for the 147th time in the 110-year history. However, it is the first time they have played on a neutral site as they played at the Prudential Center in the second game of a double-header in the inaugural Never Forget Tribute Classic.

Heavyweight Alexander Povetkin, whose mandatory fight against world titleholder Deontay Wilder on May 21 in Moscow was canceled less than two weeks before the bout because Povetkin tested positive for the banned substance meldonium, is off the hook. Nike Air Max 720 Womens Australia .The WBC announced a resolution to its investigation into the matter on Wednesday. It decided not to punish Povetkin, despite the dirty test.Not only will Povetkin not be punished beyond the cancellation of the May fight -- which cost him a purse of $1,930,500, Wilder a purse of $4,504,500 and the winner a $715,000 bonus -- but he was also given a shot at the interim title because Wilder (37-0, 36 KOs) will likely be sidelined until at least early 2017. Wilder recently had right hand and biceps surgery after he suffered injuries in his eighth-round knockout of Chris Arreola on July 16 in a fight arranged on short notice following the Povetkin bout being called off.Povetkin (30-1, 22 KOs), 36, a former world titleholder and 2004 Russian Olympic gold medalist, was ordered to face former world titleholder Bermane Stiverne (25-2-1, 21 KOs), 37, a Haiti native living in Las Vegas, for the vacant interim belt. Wilder outclassed Stiverne in a lopsided decision win to claim the title in January 2015As a result of his injuries and surgeries, champion Wilder is expected to be inactive until some time in 2017, WBC president Mauricio Sulaiman said in a statement. Deontay Wilder is confirmed as WBC heavyweight champion and will have the time to recover from his multiple injuries and surgeries. Wilder will retain his rights as champion, including the 70 percent advantage in case his mandatory bout needs to go to purse bid, once he returns to action.An interim championship is ordered between the two highest available contenders, No. 1 Alexander Povetkin and No. 2 Bermane Stiverne.The Povetkin and Stiverne camps were ordered to begin negotiations immediately. If they do not make a deal, a purse bid will be held Sept. 16 with each fighter entitled to 50 percent of the winning offer.In addition, both fighters are required to participate in the WBCs new Clean Boxing Program, which means they will be randomly tested (blood and urine) by the Voluntary Anti-Doping Association.Povetkin said he used meldonium in late 2015, before the World Anti-Doping Agency ban went into effect on Jan. 1, 2016. The WBC said because Povetkins level of meldonium was under 1 ug/mg in tests conducted after March 1, any punishment was at its discretion because there was no way to determine if the drug had been used after the ban.Povetkins A sample level of meldonium was 0.070 micrograms per milliliter, and the B sample was 0.072, levels approximately 14 times less than the threshold level of 1.0 that WADA set in notices published in April and June.However, in its ruling, the WBC failed to address how Povetkin could have been negative in random VADA tests conducted on April 7, 8 and 11, but his April 27 test of both his A and B samples were positive, though only trace amounts.Wilder and DiBella presented evidence during a hearing with the WBC in Birmingham, Alabama, the day after the Wilder-Arreola fight, during which an expert witness, Dr. Daniel Eichner, the former science director for the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency and current president of the Sports Medicine Research and Testing Laboratory in Salt Lake City, one of two accredited WADA labs in the United States, testified that it would be impossible to test negative for meldonium three times and then test positive days later without having ingested it in the interim.Dr. Eichner also testified that .007 micrograms per milileter would be a normal level of meldonium to find if a week had passed between ingestion and testing.Nonetheless, the WBC said it would not ban Povetkin for competing for its title because of the impossibility to scientifically prove that Mr. Povetkin ingested meldonium after January 1, 2016.As part of Povetkins being allowed to fight Stiverne for the interim belt, the WBC said VADA will design a specific testing protocol for Mr. Povetkin at Mr. Povetkins own cost and expense. The VADA-designed protocol will commence as soon as feasible after this ruling and will continue for one year thereafter.If there is any future positive test, the WBC said it will suspend Mr. Povetkin from participation in any WBC-sanctioned events indefinitely, divest Mr. Povetkin from any WBC title or any other rights he might have at the time and impose any and all available penalties under the Clean Boxing Program without further inquiry.Andrey Ryabinsky of World of Boxing, Povetkins promoter, viewed the ruling as a victory for Povetkin.We won, he wrote on social media. Povetkin has been vindicated, and must now fight Stiverne because Wilder is injured. Ill still keep up the legal action against Wilders team.Promoter Lou DiBella and Wilder filed suit in U.S. federal court in New York for at least $5 million over the canceled fight. Ryabinsky later filed suit against them, seeking at least $34.5 million for breach of contract and defamation.Wilder, meanwhile, is rehabilitating from the surgeries, which were pronounced a success by Dr. Jimmy Robinson, Wilders physician since his pro debut, who is also the chair for sports medicine and team physician for the University of Alabama.The surgeries were completed by well-renowned surgeons and were an absolute success, Robinson said. I anticipate that Wilder will be back fighting by the end of this year or January of next year. As he is healing, part of his rehab will be to restore range [of] motion to the elbow and get his strength back, which will expedite his recovery. The repair to his right hand should make it as solid and as strong as it can be, so that no further injuries are sustained. In fact, with his rehab, I anticipate the power in his right hand only to increase.Said DiBella: Were thrilled that both surgeries were so successful and that Deontay is on the road back. Hes a dedicated champion and will work diligently to return better than ever. Its great for Deontay, boxing and the heavyweight division that he will be able to defend his title when the calendar turns to 2017.Jay Deas, Wilders trainer and co-manager, said that even though Wilder cannot use his right hand at the moment, they will hit the gym to work on other things.Deontay and I will be working out as he heals so that he will be prepared the moment he is fully healed, Deas said. He will be in the gym working on conditioning, his footwork, and well be working his left hand overtime so that when the right hand is cleared, we will be ready to take a fight.Wilder broke his right hand for the third time and had surgery on it for the second time. But he said he is a fast healer and anxious to fight again.Ive always known that my body is a fast-healing body because I am an elite athlete, and the doctor confirmed that, Wilder said. Were going to pick up where we left off. Im looking forward to unifying the division. Thats my main goal. I dont want to stop. I dont need a tune-up. I dont need a warm-up. I dont need none of that. Once everything is healed with the arm, Im going to get back to right where I left off.That could mean a new date with Povetkin or a rematch with Stiverne.

Ross Brawn says he left Mercedes at the end of 2013 because he could no longer trust Niki Lauda or Toto Wolff. Wes Martin Youth Jersey .Brawn remained Mercedes boss after it purchased his title-winning Brawn GP team ahead of the 2010 season. He remained at the helm for four seasons and helped orchestrate the teams return to competitiveness in 2013, having played a key role in luring Lewis Hamilton from Mercedes.However, he left his role at the end of 2013 and has now revealed it was due to his relationship with non-executive chairman Lauda and Wolff, who had both been added to the teams management structure.What happened at Mercedes is that people were imposed on me who I couldnt trust, Brawn says in his new book Total Competition. I never really knew what they were trying to do. I mean Niki would tell me one thing, then I would hear he was saying something else.Brawn also recalls Wolffs famous stroll along the beach with former F1 team boss Colin Kolles, when Wolff made several disparaging remarks about him which became semi-public afterwards.He said I was resting on my money now. I had got all this money and I wasnt interested in the team anymore, and I wasnt motivated and I wasnt doing this, I wasnt doing that. That the team needed a fresh impetus and all that sort of stuff. Diressing slightly, he was very new to the team and he had been flattered by the boards attention.What the board had said to him, from what I understand, is This team is not working for some reason, youre a smart businessman, you know Williams, can you just go in there and tell us whats wrong? So he was giving Kolles a snapshot of what he was mentally rehearsing, I guess.Brawn says the hiring of Paddy Lowe in 2013 to a technical role further strained his relationship with both men.?So I was beginning to deal with people who I didnt feel I could ultimately trust; people within the team, who had let me down already in terms of their approach.Then in early 2013, I discovered Paddy Lowe had been contracted to join the team and it had been signed off in Stuttgart. When I challenged Toto and Niki, they blamed each other. I met them to have it out with them. And they both pointed to each other...Total Competition: Lessons in strategy from Formula One, written by Brawn and Adam Parr, is published by Simon & Schuster on November 3.?

ST. LOUIS -- The St. Louis Cardinals will have to make do without All-Star second baseman Matt Carpenter for an extended period. Theyve struggled plenty even with Carpenter in the lineup.Carpenter was placed on the 15-day disabled list on Thursday with a strained right oblique, and theres no set timetable for his return.Manager Mike Matheny said he delivered the sermon that this isnt a rehab that can be rushed. He recalled having the same injury as a player and disregarding medical advice, setting him back longer. The Cardinals were 3-5 and trying to avoid a four-game sweep by the Pirates in the finale of a nine-game homestand.Carps going to have to be careful with this, Matheny said. Its going to take those two weeks at the very minimum.Greg Garcia batted leadoff in place of Carpenter on Thursday and Kolten Wong was at second base. Wong was the starting second baseman at the beginning of the season, but Carpenter moved from third base to second base when Jhonny Peralta returned from thumb surgery.Jedd Gyorko, expected to compete for playing time at second base and shortstop before the season started, also figures to get plenty of work.The Cardinals are set at shortstop with rookie Aledmys Diaz, who replaced Carpenter as St. Louis lone representative on the All-Star team. Diaz was batting .319 with 12 homers and 44 RBI.The Cardinals purchased the conttract of catcher Michael McKenry from Triple-A Memphis. Russ Grimm Womens Jersey. Matheny said the 31-year-old McKenry, who was batting .341 with five homers and 20 RBI, was the best bat available. McKenry had a game-winning homer against Nashville on Tuesday night and has played for Colorado and Pittsburgh.Carpenter, named Tuesday to his third NL All-Star team, is the third St. Louis player in three days to go on the DL, joining Brandon Moss (ankle) and Brayan Pena (knee).Carpenter was among the league leaders in on-base percentage (.420) and slugging percentage (.568). He was batting .298 with a team-leading 25 doubles and 53 RBI to go with 14 homers.Matheny said he told Carpenter to take advantage of rest while he can, and then plan on riding it hard the rest of the way after this and put on the kind of finish hes had here at the start.The manager hoped the rest of the team would see Carpenters injury as a chance to contribute. Diaz got his break when Tommy Pham injured his oblique on opening day, combined with a hamstring injury to Ruben Tejada, and was among the top rookies with a .319 average, 12 homers and 44 RBI.Have a Moss go down? Opportunity. Have a Carpenter go down? Opportunity, Matheny said. What are you going to do with it? ' ' '
