The Seattle Mariners have placed ace Felix Hernandez on the 10-day disabled list with shoulder inflammation. In 2005, while in the minors, he missed one month with shoulder bursitis and during 2007 an inflamed elbow in his second season in the majors put him on the disabled list.

Barrington stuck around for three seasons with the Packers , starting seven games in 2014. NFL.com's Mike Mayock broke down King's game and it looks to be a good breakdown if you're a Packers' fan.

Maybe by the time Game 5 rolls around the Bucks will. "We got our ass bust", Lowry finally said, when asked to sum up the Raptors' woeful performance. The youngest team in the NBA Playoffs by far looks like a group of experienced pros. Toronto, whose collection of pricey superstars including Lowry, Jonas Valanciunas, Serge Ibaka , DeMar DeRozan and DeMarre Carroll looks downright pedestrian by comparison.
Two more skill position offensive players went seventh and eighth. "There is just a shade over the Cleveland Browns with Texas A&M, but I can only talk with my play".

The Chicago Bears had better hope North Carolina's Mitchell Trubisky pans out. Arguably the biggest move of the draft came when the Chicago Bears swapped the No. - Three tight ends were chosen in the first round for the first time since 2002. He carried his infant son onstage. This draft class has better prospects later in the draft than high-impact players at the top.
An overweight Fury looked painfully slow and overweight in hitting the mitts. When [Klitschko] gets beat, that could be the end of him. The surprise on the scales may affect the betting odds, which have been favouring Joshua narrowly at just under 1-2, with Klitschko at a little less than 2-1.

City have scored more goals through so-called "big chances" (43) than any other side in the Premier League .
