David Morgan to have season-ending knee surgery

David Morgan to have season-ending knee surgery

Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports He will not be back with the team in 2019 We started out the week by letting everyone know that defensive end Tashawn Bower and tight end David Morgan were both eligible to return from the Non-Football Injury and Physically Unable to Perform Lists, respectively. The Vikings waived Bower on Tuesday, and on Friday they announced that Morgan would not be back with the team, either. The team announced on Friday that Morgan would be undergoing “season-ending” surgery on his knee. He had knee problems going back to the end of the 2018 season, and those...

Writer and director Nathan Ives helms documentary ‘Somewhere in the Middle’ to show success in the arts is not about fame and celebrity

Most people think success as an artist means fame and fortune. Nathan Ives thinks people have it wrong. "Celebrities are, I would say, .01 precent of working artists out there, but they get all of the press," the screenwriter and director told the Daily News. For example, he noted, "they're thinking...

5 Qs, 5 As: Earl Thomas returns, but Marlon Humphrey may be the top dog in Ravens secondary

5 Qs, 5 As: Earl Thomas returns, but Marlon Humphrey may be the top dog in Ravens secondary

Photo by Scott Taetsch/ The Seattle Seahawks host the Baltimore Ravens and one of the players on that defense has a history here. That’s probably all you need to know! But fine, we’ll get into it some more as the Seahawks wrap their AFC North schedule this Sunday against the Ravens. I sent 5 Qs to Kyle Barber of BaltimoreBeatdown.com and in return he sent me five corresponding As. And a bonus. Q: We want to know how Earl’s doing. How’s Earl doing? A: Earl has been solid. Something we are mildly frustrated about, though, is the lack of Thomas playing his natural single-high...

Which Celtics rookie will have the best year?

Which Celtics rookie will have the best year?

Photo by Brian Babineau/NBAE via Romeo Langford, Grant Williams, Carsen Edwards, or (ahem) Tacko Fall? The Celtics draft class is getting rave reviews from those around the team and it is easy to see why. So who do we think is going to be the best of the bunch this season? Romeo Langford was the top pick (in the lottery at that) and was a really highly rated recruit coming out of high school. However, he has struggled with injuries both in college and during Summer League and preseason. He also seems to be in the process of re-tooling his jump shot. He could end up being the best of the...

Friday Off Topic Thread, October 18 Edition

Photo by Chesnot/ What do you miss about the internet? It’s early in the Royals offseason and there’s a lot of months to overanalyze what’s going on and what’s going to happen. With new ownership and a new manager, it’s probably going to be relatively interesting. But let’s not do that yet. Today, our off topic thread involves injuries, habits, and thinking about the old internet that was but is not anymore. Patrick Mahomes’ injury is the talk of the NFL and overshadowed an otherwise dominant victory against the Denver Broncos last night. All the time, athletes get called...

The Charlotte Hornets 2019-2020 fantasy basketball outlook

Photo by Kent Smith/NBAE via Sometimes fantasy isn’t better than reality. I proudly carry the banner as one of the world’s relatively few die-hard fantasy NBA players. Personally, I love pulling up Stat Tracker every night as little green flashes highlight the points, rebounds, assists, and other stats my boys rack up. My league’s draft is coming up on Saturday so it’s fitting for me to share the fantasy outlook for Charlotte Hornets players. And sorry, friends, but it isn’t pretty. Here are their 2019-2020 projected stats (via ESPN) and average draft position (from Fantasy...

2019 Player Review: Victor Reyes

2019 Player Review: Victor Reyes

Raj Mehta-USA TODAY Sports Reyes did enough for a return ticket in 2020, but he’s still a long way from being a major league starter. The history of the Rule 5 draft reads like a catalog of last chances. For most players, going unprotected in the Rule 5 is a sign that their days as a prospect are over, and that their career as an organizational minor league player has begun. Most years, it’s a longshot that a single player emerges from the draft of players organizations have left unprotected to have real success. Tigers outfielder Victor Reyes bucked that characterization in 2019....

Why the Yankees shouldn’t place Giancarlo Stanton on the injured list

Why the Yankees shouldn’t place Giancarlo Stanton on the injured list

Photo by Bob Levey/ Doing so would end his season, and that’s not a risk worth taking. Four games into the ALCS, Giancarlo Stanton has only played in one of them. In his lone game against the Houston Astros, Stanton went yard, and boosted his 2019 postseason triple slash to .300/.467/.600 in four games. When Stanton was playing, he proved he could have an impact in the 2019 playoffs. However, an untimely quad injury has cast a pall over the situation. With the Yankees fighting for their lives in this ALCS and doing so with essentially a 24-man roster until Stanton is healthy enough to...
