Cowboys’ Ezekiel Elliott ‘confident’ he will play rest of the season

Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott will not fly back to Dallas with his teammates after Sunday’s 33-19 win against the Washington Redskins. Instead he will head to New York to attend a preliminary injunction hearing that could decide whether he remains on the field for the rest of the season or is forced to miss the next six games.

Hue Jackson not worried about job despite 1-23 record with Browns

Hue Jackson has followed a 1-15 season with an 0-8 start, but the Cleveland Browns coach insists he is not worried about his job.

“It’s a very complex situation on multiple levels. This is really the last window that we had [the trade deadline is Tuesday at 4 p.m. ET], and we did what we felt was best for the team.”

Garoppolo, who turns 26 on Thursday, was selected in the second round of the 2014 draft (No. 62 overall). He was scheduled for unrestricted free agency after the season, and the two sides apparently could not reach agreement on a new deal. The Patriots got a 2018 second-round pick for him.

The Patriots still have 40-year-old Tom Brady under contract through 2019. In early September, the Patriots traded No. 3 quarterback Jacoby Brissett to the Indianapolis Colts.

Bears guard Kyle Long suffered a hand injury against the New Orleans Saints. Offensive lineman Cody Whitehair sustained an elbow injury.

Ball and the Lakers fell behind 31-16 at the end of the first quarter but were within six late in the third, when Mitchell came flying from the wing on an Alec Burks’ missed 3, catching and throwing down the rebound with a thunderous, one-handed putback dunk that electrified the Vivint Smart Home Arena.

Ball was in position to grab the rebound, and no one boxed out Mitchell, who had a running start. Ball then threw a turnover on the ensuing play, and that led to a Mitchell 3-pointer that pushed the Jazz lead back to 11 heading into the fourth. The Lakers got no closer than five after that.

“That was my fault,” Ball said of the Mitchell putback dunk, which Lakers Cheap Hockey Jerseys coach Luke Walton said swung the momentum. “If you think about it, that kind of changed the whole Cheap Cycling Jerseys course of the game. … I should have boxed him out. Then I threw the turnover.”

Johnson, No. 12 Auburn beat Mississippi 44-23

Kerryon Johnson is enjoying taking his mostly healed hamstring on frequent jaunts to the end zone.

No. 12 Auburn is happily riding along with him. Both continued their hot streaks on Saturday, with Johnson rushing for a career-high 204 yards and three touchdowns and the Tigers beating Mississippi 44-23.

Johnson and the Tigers (5-0, 3-0 Southeastern Conference) continued a recent tear with their third straight lopsided win over a league team. Johnson, who didn’t play in the fourth quarter, has 11 touchdown runs during that stretch after missing two games with a right hamstring injury.

“I felt so close to normal that I just couldn’t hide it,” said Johnson, who had a career-high 28 rushes. “In the open field, I was making people miss and I was able to get up to a faster speed than last week. It just felt really good to being normal again.”

The Rebels (2-3, 0-2) endured their second straight blowout in the state a week after losing 66-3 to No. 1 Alabama. This one was much closer, but not competitive.

The Tigers were up 35-3 at halftime before Shea Patterson and Ole Miss managed to whittle down the lead.

“This was a game that a lot of teams could have come out and flopped around in the first half, especially with what happened last week with us and them,” Auburn coach Gus Malzahn said. “Real proud of our leadership that we answered the bell.”

It was the largest upset by any team against Oklahoma in the past Lebron Cheap Jerseys 40 years — and yet it’s still premature to write off Oklahoma or any other one-loss team eyeing a top-four spot, because that’s the norm in this system. While the spotlight in the Big 12 turns to TCU, the lone Miami Heat Cheap Jerseys undefeated team remaining in the conference after its win over West Virginia, CFP history reminds us that the selection committee can be forgiving.
