Bergstrom, 31, provides experienced depth for the offensive line; the Ravens’ top two reserves on the interior were Matt Skura and Jermaine Eluemunor, both of whom have never played in an NFL regular-season game.

wholesale sports jerseys This is the fourth team in three years for Bergstrom, who also played for the Oakland Raiders Jersey and Houston Texans Jersey. The 95th overall pick of the 2012 draft, Bergstrom has four career starts.

Wholesale Stephone Anthony jersey The Ravens parted ways with Zuttah for the second time in six months. He was traded to the San Francisco 49ers Jersey in March, but Baltimore re-signed him on Aug. 18, nine days after the Niners released him. Upon his return, Zuttah never pressed Ryan Jensen Jersey for the starting center position.

The offensive line has been an area of concern for Baltimore. It has been hit hard in training camp, losing three key players with the retirement of John Urschel Jersey and season-ending injuries to Alex Lewis Jersey (shoulder) and Nico Siragusa Jersey (knee).

The other notable move by the Ravens on Friday was the release of veteran tight end Larry Donnell Jersey, according to a league source.

Cardinals release veteran RB Chris Johnson

Cheap Matt Wells jersey The Arizona Cardinals Jersey have released veteran running back Chris Johnson Jersey, a source told ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter on Friday. As recently as Monday, Johnson, who turns 32 on Sept. 23, remained optimistic that he’d make the Cardinals’ 53-man roster, despite two fumbles in Saturday’s preseason game against Atlanta.

“I’m getting better and better,” Johnson said Monday. “Me running the ball never really has been the problem but I think I’ve shown my hands have gotten better, catching the ball better and those types of things. I think I’ve really done all that I can do.”

The team had re-signed Johnson to a third consecutive one-year deal just prior to the start of training camp in July. He had each of his past two seasons cut short by injury after not missing a game due to injury in his first seven seasons.

wholesale jerseys He was placed on injured reserve last season after suffering a groin injury in Week 4 that required surgery. He finished with 95 yards and one touchdown on 25 carries in a backup role behind David Johnson Jersey Jersey.

Cheap Matt Wells jersey In 2015, Chris Johnson Jersey suffered a fractured tibia in Week 12.

His first six NFL seasons with the Tennessee Titans Jersey were highlighted by a 2,006-yard season in 2009, when he led the league in rushing, broke the NFL’s single-season record for yards from scrimmage (2,509) and was named The Associated Press NFL Offensive Player of the Year.

The three-time Pro Bowl selection has averaged less than 4.0 yards per carry just twice in his nine seasons.

The Texans Head Home to Flooded Houston, a City in Need

Wholesale Jason Peters jersey The first thing J.J. Watt Jersey Jersey plans to do when he gets home to Houston is hug his girlfriend. Then the Texans’ defensive end will begin the work of recovery in a city ravaged this week by flooding from Hurricane Harvey. The Texans had been diverted to Dallas after their preseason game in New Orleans when Harvey struck land over the weekend, dumping up to 50 inches of rain on southeast Texas and producing flooding that has taken the lives of at least 31 people and left tens of thousands more seeking shelter.

In the meantime, Watt has raised more than $6 million in hurricane relief funds, after blowing away the original stated goal of $200,000. Now he’s made a new goal: $10 million. “Because everything’s bigger in Texas,” he said on Wednesday afternoon, outside the Renaissance hotel in Plano, near where they practiced this week at the Star, the Cowboys’ facility in Frisco.

jason peters cyber monday jersey

Texans players were notified on Wednesday morning that the preseason game against the Cowboys scheduled for Thursday and relocated from Houston to Arlington, would be canceled, and they would be heading home at 1 p.m. Central time. Watt said players responded with subdued joy, understanding the gravity of the situation facing Houston and eager to see their family members, some of whom have been displaced by the storm. “Everybody’s been asking me how they can help,” Watt said. “Everybody’s been asking me what they can do. I think we’re just excited to be with our city and help our city rebuild.”

cheap jerseys General manager Rick Smith explained that the team had been in communication with local authorities between Dallas and Houston, and only today did those authorities determine that there was a clear route to travel from Dallas to NRG Stadium on roads uncompromised by floodwaters. The Texans’ stadium has been set up as a staging area for volunteers, with reports of some being turned away due to the sheer numbers of people who had come offering to help. “We didn’t have the option to get the team home safely until today,” Smith said. “So when it became available to us, we’ve got so many guys who are distracted by the events and circumstances at home that it became increasingly morally difficult to ask those guys to go out and play a football game.” The Texans held training camp in West Virginia, and with the disruption of Harvey, most players have been home for only a few days since late July.

Wholesale Jason Peters jersey For Watt and other teammates who have pledged their time and resources, the focus has been on organizing a large network of contributors to the relief fund who have pledged supplies including semi trucks, food, water, clothing and generators. The plan as of Wednesday is to assemble those trucks filled with supplies at various locations around the greater Houston area, with players handing out supplies to displaced residents. “It’s been extremely difficult to watch, but it’s also been unbelievably motivational, to see firefighters, police and everyday citizens out in boats helping each other out and lifting each other up,” Watt said. “The most difficult times bring out the best in humanity, and that’s what we are seeing right now. It’s incredible to witness.”

Watt encouraged people to continue donating, and stressed that the process of recovery in Houston would take many months. In the meantime, the Texans are 11 days away from a season opener against the Jaguars, scheduled for Sept. 10 at NRG. Rick Smith said that as of now, the plan remains to play the game as scheduled.

Smith and Watt spoke over the hum of engines as Texans players and staff filed onto buses bound for Houston. They left at 1:05 for what is normally a three-and-a-half hour drive, back to a city in crisis.

Reports: Bengals’ John Ross has sprained knee, in doubt for opener

Wholesale Ross Cockrell jersey Cincinnati Bengals Jersey wide receiver John Ross Jersey has a sprained knee, the NFL Network reports. Bengals.com writer Geoff Hobson tweeted that Ross’s injury is not believed to be serious but could keep him out for a couple of weeks. At the very least, his Week 1 status is in doubt.

cyber monday ross cockrell jersey

Rookie receiver John Ross Jersey had already missed significant time in the offseason as he recovered from shoulder surgery. AP Photo/John MinchilloRoss left Thursday night’s game against the Indianapolis Colts Jersey with a knee injury after taking only nine snaps, probably tweaking his knee after gaining 25 yards on an end-around play.

He stayed in the game for the next play but then had his knee examined by trainers and went to the locker room. Ross returned to the sidelines but did not go back in the game.

cheap jerseys from china The No. 9 overall pick in the 2017 draft was playing in the preseason finale because he had missed significant time in the offseason while recovering from shoulder surgery. He missed all of OTAs and didn’t fully participate in practice until Aug. 14.

Wholesale Ross Cockrell jersey With Ross out, the Bengals lose the fastest player on their offense and a promising rookie who was expected to stretch the field. Although the starting three-wide lineup would have been A.J. Green Jersey Jersey, Brandon LaFell Jersey and Tyler Boyd Jersey in the slot, Ross’ 4.22 40-yard dash speed would have presented a good change of pace for the Bengals’ offense.

His absence makes it more likely the team will carry seven receivers on the active roster, with Cody Core and Alex Erickson taking the final spots behind A.J. Green Jersey Jersey, Brandon LaFell Jersey, Tyler Boyd Jersey and Josh Malone Jersey.

Pats’ Cyrus Jones has torn ACL, will miss entire season

Cheap Tyrunn Walker jersey New England Patriots Jersey 2016 second-round draft choice Cyrus Jones Jersey, who projected as the team’s top punt returner after Julian Edelman Jersey tore his right ACL last Friday, suffered his own torn ACL in Thursday night’s preseason finale against the New York Giants Jersey and is lost for the season. An MRI Friday on his right knee confirmed the severity of the injury, which was first reported by the NFL Network.

black friday tyrunn walker jersey

Jones was playing cornerback when the injury happened with 8:38 remaining in the second quarter, as he was covering Giants receiver Travis Rudolph up the left sideline. When Jones stepped with his right foot, his leg seemed to give out on the synthetic grass surface. There was no contact that led to the injury. Medical staffers helped Jones to the sideline as he couldn’t apply much pressure, if any, on his right foot.

tyrunn walker black friday jersey

Patriots cornerback Cyrus Jones Jersey suffered a right knee injury on Thursday night, and a source told ESPN that Jones’ season could be in jeopardy.

wholesale jerseys from china Fred Kfoury III/Icon SportswireWhile at Alabama, Jones was one of the most dynamic returners in college football. His four career punt returns for touchdowns set a Crimson Tide single-season record.

Cheap Tyrunn Walker jersey His value as a returner is what led the Patriots to select him with their top pick in the 2016 draft (60th overall), over a handful of players the club had rated similarly. Jones struggled as a rookie in the role, but had shown improvement in the 2017 preseason.

The injury could thrust veteran receiver Danny Amendola Jersey Jersey into the top punt returner role. However, the Patriots might be concerned about expanding his workload and increasing his injury risk because they likely will tap him more at receiver after Edelman’s season-ending knee injury.

Bills cut Jonathan Williams

Wholesale Cierre Wood jersey In an unexpected move, the Bills have released running back Jonathan Williams, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Media. Williams was expected to have a backup role behind LeSean McCoy Jersey Jersey.

Williams, 23, was a fifth-round pick of the Bills in 2016. He rushed for 94 yards and scored a touchdown on 27 carries as a rookie.

Redskins S Su’a Cravens, a 2016 second-round pick, considering retirement

Wholesale Sam Shields jersey Even if players retiring very early in their NFL careers is becoming more common, it’s still a bit surprising. The Washington Redskins Jersey were reportedly shocked when safety Su’a Cravens told team officials and teammates he planned to retire.

cyber monday sam shields jersey

Team president Bruce Allen convinced Cravens to postpone his decision on Sunday morning, the Post said. Instead Cravens will go on the exempt list and the team will have a month to “resolve personal issues” that led to the decision, according to the Post.

sam shields cyber monday jersey

It’s a huge blow to the Redskins if Cravens doesn’t come back. Cravens is the type of player NFL teams are looking for: He’s a big, athletic safety who can double as a linebacker in sub-packages and defend the run and versatile tight ends in the pass game. Cravens injured a meniscus and needed arthroscopic knee surgery last month, but it seemed he’d be back for Week 1. It appears he won’t be available for a while, and he might be completely done.

wholesale jerseys authentic Last season Cravens had a biceps injury late in the season, teammates reportedly wondered why he didn’t play through it and he missed a treatment session before Week 17 according to The MMQB.

Wholesale Sam Shields jersey Cravens later tweeted the story was untrue. Cravens also has dealt with concussion issues, though there has been no indication if health concerns are behind his decision.

The specific reasons Cravens wanted to retire Sunday are unclear, though he has a four-year contract that averages about $1.1 million annually. He’s just 22 years old but for now his NFL future is in a holding pattern, depending what happens over the next month.

NFL Preview Week: 15 players lost to injury, suspension or sitting out who will be missed

Cheap David Johnson jersey The 2017 NFL regular season gets underway in just five days, but many teams will be without some key pieces as they line up, whether because of injury, suspension or sitting out. Some are lost for the season, others for a month. But either way, their teams will be forced to adjust in their absence.

black friday david johnson jersey

Here’s a look at 15 players who will be sorely missed:

david johnson black friday jersey

RB Ezekiel Elliott Jersey, Dallas Cowboys Jersey, 6-game suspension for personal conduct: As of this posting, Elliott’s suspension is still in place, as we’re waiting for arbitrator Harold Henderson’s decision after last week’s appeal hearing. In 15 games last season, Elliott led the league in carries (322, the only player over 300) and yards (1,631), was one of only six running backs to average over five yards per carry (he was at 5.1), scored 15 touchdowns, and had nearly 2,000 yards from scrimmage. As Elliott and the NFLPA seem ready to go to court to fight the suspension if Henderson upholds it, he may not serve the six games at the start of the season – or even this season. But if he serves it, it’s a big loss for Dallas’ offense.

cheap sports jerseys View photosChiefs RB Spencer Ware Jersey Jersey will miss the season after suffering a serious knee injury against the Seahawks last month. (AP)MoreRB Spencer Ware Jersey Jersey, Kansas City Chiefs Jersey, torn PCL and LCL, out for season: Ware emerged as a versatile threat out of the backfield for the Chiefs last season, with a team-best 1,368 yards from scrimmage on 214 carries and 33 catches; he totaled five touchdowns. Ware underwent surgery on his right knee within the last few days, and while the Chiefs do have other options, including rookie third-round pick Kareem Hunt Jersey, they have sizeable shoes to fill.

Cheap David Johnson jersey QB Andrew Luck Jersey Jersey, Indianapolis Colts Jersey, shoulder surgery, return unclear: Even in a time where it seems everything can and will be reported, Luck’s recovery and return remain a mystery. The 27-year old former No. 1 pick finally underwent shoulder surgery this offseason, after playing in pain for two years. But while he’s been throwing for weeks, a couple of days ago Colts owner Jim Irsay indicated there’s little chance Luck will play in the opener against the Rams. Indianapolis didn’t place him on reserve/PUP, meaning he can come back at any time, and every Colts fan is left to wonder: when?

WR Julian Edelman Jersey Jersey, New England Patriots Jersey, torn ACL, out for season: Edelman’s numbers are eye-popping, but they don’t have to be – the Patriots have several options at receiver. But when Tom Brady Jersey Jersey needs him, Edelman is almost always there. Fifty-five of his 98 catches last season went for first downs. The former seventh-round pick was the only New England player with over 1,000 receiving yards last year.

QB Ryan Tannehill Jersey Jersey, Miami Dolphins Jersey, torn ACL, out for season: Everyone has been waiting for Tannehill to take a step forward in his development, and last year he seemed to – which is exactly why the Dolphins hired Adam Gase as their head coach. But he rehabbed a partially torn ACL suffered late in the schedule rather than get it surgically repaired, and in one awkward play in camp, the same ACL was again partially torn. This time, Tannehill and Miami decided surgery was the better course. Jay Cutler Jersey Jersey played well under Gase when the two were together in Chicago, and if Miami is going to build on the momentum it started last season, it will need the duo to recapture that success.

View photosColts C Ryan Kelly Jersey, No. 78, started all 16 games as a rookie but will not be on the field in the opening weeks of this season as he recovers from foot surgery. (AP)MoreRead MoreC Ryan Kelly Jersey, Indianapolis Colts Jersey, foot surgery, out 6-8 weeks: After asking Andrew Luck Jersey Jersey to play behind one of the worst offensive lines in the NFL for a few years, former general manager Ryan Grigson spent some draft capital on it last year, using the team’s first-round pick on Kelly. He started every game as a rookie and was slated to resume that job this year, but suffered a foot injury on Aug. 10 in practice. A week later, coach Chuck Pagano announced that Kelly would require surgery; the timetable for his return is 6-8 weeks. The Colts are carrying Kelly on the active roster, but it looks like he’ll miss at least three games.

LT Terron Armstead Jersey Jersey, New Orleans Saints Jersey, labrum surgery, return unclear: New Orleans’ starting left tackle the last three seasons, Armstead underwent labrum surgery in mid-June, and his initial return timetable was set at 4-6 months, which meant he could miss the entire season. But on Saturday, the Saints made Armstead part of their 53-man roster , giving reason for optimism that he’ll be back much sooner; they could have placed him on the reserve PUP list, which would have meant at least six more weeks of recovery before a return to practice.

[Sign up for Fantasy Football before it’s too late! Draft now for free]LT George Fant Jersey, Seattle Seahawks Jersey, torn ACL, out for season: It is well known the struggles the Seahawks have had fielding a solid O-line to protect Russell Wilson Jersey, but in Fant it looked like they had a rising star. Primarily a basketball player at Western Kentucky, Fant played 10 games last year as a rookie when injuries hit his unit, but added 25 pounds in the offseason and had received raves from coaches and teammates for his rapid improvement and work ethic, earning his spot instead of getting it through attrition.

WR Cameron Meredith Jersey Jersey, Chicago Bears Jersey, torn ACL, out for season: Meredith was fashioning a nice story for himself: undrafted out of Illinois State in 2015, he played sparingly as a rookie but made a giant leap in 2016. As the Bears were forced to start three players at quarterback, Meredith was the most dependable option for each, with 66 catches for 888 yards and four touchdowns, all team highs. He came into training camp this year and picked up where he’d left off, a bright spot at a position of weakness for Chicago.

DT Aaron Donald Jersey Jersey, Los Angeles Rams Jersey, contract holdout, return unclear: Donald has established himself as one of the best defensive tackles in the league – in his three seasons, he’s been a Pro Bowler three times and first-team All-Pro in each of the last two. He’s outplayed his rookie contract (he’s currently owed just $9 million in base salary for 2017-18), and is staying away from the team until he gets a new one. Several members of the Rams front office flew to Atlanta last week to meet with Donald’s agents, but didn’t get closer to a deal . Rookie head coach Sean McVay could head into his first real game without his team’s best player.

LT Duane Brown Jersey Jersey, Houston Texans Jersey, contract holdout, return unclear: Brown has stayed away from the Texans all year, and there’s no indication right now as to when he might return. The 32-year old, a three-time Pro Bowler who has been named first- and second-team All-Pro in past seasons, is still Houston’s best offensive lineman and would like a pay bump over what he’s currently scheduled to make in the final two years of his deal.

View photosUnknown future: Saints DT Nick Fairley Jersey will not play this season, and may never play again, after doctors discovered a heart condition. (AP)MoreDT Nick Fairley Jersey, New Orleans Saints Jersey, heart condition, out for season: You have to feel for Fairley – not only will he miss this season with a heart condition discovered by a team doctor (the exact problem has not been disclosed), he may not play football again . New Orleans first signed Fairley before the 2016 season, and after a career season, the team rewarded him with a four-year, $28 million extension; it was sometime after signing that deal that the heart issue was discovered. The Saints have placed Fairley on the non-football injury list for this year, but in the interest of his long-term health, he may have played his last NFL game.

S T.J. McDonald Jersey Jersey, Miami Dolphins Jersey, suspended eight games for substance abuse: This is a bit of a strange situation. The Dolphins signed McDonald as a free agent in March, a one-year, $1.34 million pact that came after the NFL announced the former Rams third-round pick would miss the first eight games of this season for violating the substance abuse policy. Then just this week, before he’s played a down in a meaningful game – and with McDonald still set to miss half the season – Miami signed him to a four-year, $24 million extension.

LT Taylor Decker Jersey, Detroit Lions Jersey, shoulder surgery, out at least six weeks: It hasn’t been a good stretch for left tackles. The Lions’ first-round pick in 2016, Decker started every game as a rookie, but had to undergo labrum surgery in early June, and Detroit moved him to the reserve/PUP list on Saturday, meaning Decker has to miss at least the first six weeks of the season, and the team doesn’t have great options to fill in during his absence. Quarterback Matthew Stafford Jersey Jersey, who became the highest-paid quarterback in NFL history this week, may not be sleeping too well for a while.

LB Anthony Hitchens Jersey Jersey, Dallas Cowboys Jersey, right kneecap fracture, eight weeks: The Cowboys got a bit of good news when it was determined that Hitchens’ injury could be resolved without surgery, as it’s believed there is no damage to his ACL. But the fourth-year middle linebacker, who started all 16 games last season, will still be out until about the end of October. It’s tough news for the player, and a defense that will also deal with suspensions.

Cleveland police union will not hold flag in Browns game because of protests

Cheap Joe Staley jersey The Cleveland Browns Jersey made national news recently when a dozen members of the team knelt during the national anthem, the largest such protest to date in the NFL. In response, Cleveland’s police union has said its officers will not hold the American flag during the anthem prior to Browns games.

black friday joe staley jersey

NFL players have offered various rationales for kneeling during the national anthem, from systemic injustice to specific critiques of police behavior. However, virtually all players who have spoken on their motivations have stressed that they do so out of a hope to improve the country they love.

joe staley black friday jersey

That rationale didn’t fly with Cleveland’s police union. “It’s just ignorant for someone to [kneel],” Cleveland Police Patrolmen’s Association president Steve Loomis told cleveland.com. “It just defies logic to me. The fact that management was aware of what they planned on doing, that’s as offensive as it can get.”

wholesale sports jerseys During the Browns’ initial protest prior to an Aug. 21 game against the Giants, the team issued a statement that tried to straddle the line between respecting the players’ opinion while stressing that the opinion wasn’t universal among the team.

Cheap Joe Staley jersey “As an organization, we have a profound respect for our country’s National Anthem, flag and the servicemen and servicewomen in the United States and abroad,” the Browns said. “We feel it’s important for our team to join in this great tradition and special moment of recognition, at the same time we also respect the great liberties afforded by our country, including the freedom of personal expression.” Cleveland reiterated that stance after players locked arms during the anthem prior to the Bears preseason game on Aug. 31.

Indeed, it’s worth noting that the Browns indicated the players’ community involvement may have actually opened their eyes to situations they wished to protest. “Professionally, thoughtfully, probably as thoughtfully as any others have,” Browns VP of Football Operations Sashi Brown told cleveland.com. “These are guys that mean well. We really push our guys to be active and conscious about the communities they live in and what goes on around them that might be even larger than football. They do that, and we support them. We respect their efforts to use their platform to make some change and express themselves. And I think for all those guys that knelt initially and then last week decided to stand—I won’t get into why they made that decision—I think they are going about it in a very responsible and thoughtful way. I’m actually proud of them.”

Loomis called that approach “hypocritical,” adding that the anthem is “the very representation of what we stand for. That’s why we aren’t going to [hold the flag].”

It’s important to note that the Cleveland Police Department is not protesting or boycotting the Browns; this is the officers’ union. Cleveland police stressed that they are still committed to fulfilling their duties at Browns games. “The union does not speak for the Division,” police department public information officer Jennifer Ciaccia told HuffPost. “The Division of Police is in no way boycotting the Browns, nor denying participation in events with our officers.”
