The second day of Alabama-LSU week saw a perfect afternoon for practice in Tuscaloosa. Comfortable temperature, clear sky. Just a nice day.Anyway, what we saw:-- Jalen Hurts was again out there throwing with the quarterbacks but was not doing any the drills requiring mobility. He's still a little more than a week away from spraining his ankle at Tennessee and having surgery to help it.-- Tua Tagovailoa continued to look fine with the sprained knee that was an issue the last two games. He said Monday everything was fine and he was doing all the drills in the limited media viewing period. When he was hurt, he wasn't doing the drill where he threw from his knees but is back doing it again.-- DeVonta Smith looked to be more mobile as he comes back from the hamstring injury. He was running short routes required of the drill we were able to see. He missed the Tennessee game and there haven't been many updates to his status since. Nick Saban speaks Wednesday morning.-- Deonte Brown looked to … [Read more...] about Alabama practice report: How injured players looked

PHILADELPHIA -- The Eagles have the option to bring back two players from injured reserve as early as this week. With several players on the injury list, important roster decisions will need to be made in the coming days. That includes tight end Richard Rodgers (knee) and wide receivers Mack Hollins (groin) and Mike Wallace (leg). The team is evaluating its injured group in order to determine which two players will get the opportunity to return to the lineup. "Richard Rodgers is one of those guys," Eagles coach Doug Pederson said during his press conference on Monday. "Mack Hollins is there. Mike Wallace is going to be a little bit later because of the lateness of his injury." Rodgers and Hollins were placed on injured reserve prior to the Week 1 win over the Atlanta Falcons. While both players seemed poised for big roles entering the offseason, others have stepped up in their absences. Eagles mid-season trade history: Looking back at the last 4 deals Rodgers has … [Read more...] about Doug Pederson says Eagles are evaluating injured players for possible returns
LONDON -- The Eagles will have their entire defensive tackle group available on Sunday against the Jacksonville Jaguars at Wembley Stadium in London.

Graham Couch Lansing State Journal Published 2:33 PM EDT Oct 1, 2018 This is the second installment of a weekly Michigan State sports mailbag — real answers to your made-up questions about Spartan football, basketball and beyond. Here are questions you might want to ask or have answered: Q: Cody White breaks his hand Saturday. Josiah Scott is still out. It’s October. Should either or both of them be redshirted? — Hunter in Manhattan, Kansas A: Short answer: It should be considered, depending on their return dates. Understand that these are two different scenarios, both potentially taking advantage of a new rule that allows players to use a redshirt year if they see action in no more than four games and still have the redshirt year available. Both of them do, having each started last season as true freshmen. Scott, who MSU misses dearly at cornerback, is recovering from a torn meniscus, Dantonio revealed during his Sunday night teleconference. Because he … [Read more...] about Michigan State football fake mailbag: Should injured players redshirt?
The NFL is defined by contractual terminology. Free agency, holdouts, franchise tags, option years, roster bonuses, signing bonuses and more. The difference between guaranteed money and total money is Salary Cap 101. So why would a rookie step on the field for his first NFL practice without first signing a contract? Several teams, including the Jets, already have completed rookie mincamp, while others like the Giants and Eagles begin Friday, and dozens of 2018 NFL draft picks remain unsigned. For instance, third-round pick Lorenzo Carter out of Georgia is the only one of the Giants' six rookies known to have signed, as reported by the Daily News. Imagine if Giants drafted these NFL stars within arm's reach instead Again, why risk serious injury and a potentially altered career path without securing your guaranteed money, which can be tens of millions for a first-round pick or five figures for a seventh-round pick? It's called the "rookie … [Read more...] about What happens to unsigned rookie if he gets injured in NFL minicamp? Does he get paid?
