Leonard Fournette cites water weight for 240-pound weigh

Leonard Fournette cites water weight for 240-pound weigh

The NFL Scouting Combine is upon us and it's what I like to consider to be the halfway point of draft season. At 240, Fournette was the heaviest running back at the combine, which drew plenty of attention on Wednesday. Here's a list of running back combine participants, their weight, and the average 40-yard dash time a running back has run since the 2005 combine given that specific weight. Read More

World Health Organization report is 'major step forward' in fight against drug-resistant bacteria

The germs on the WHO's list were chosen based on the severity of the infections they cause, how easily they spread, how many working drugs remain and whether new antibiotics to kill them are already being developed. "Antibiotic resistance is growing, and we are fast running out of treatment options", the WHO's assistant director-general for health systems and innovation, Marie-Paule Kieny, said. Read More

Pittsburgh Steelers franchise tag Le'Veon Bell

Pittsburgh Steelers franchise tag Le'Veon Bell

One week after that, in a meeting with reporters , Steelers general manager Kevin Colbert expressed his desire to keep Brown in the fold for a long time to come: "I can say unequivocally we want [Brown] to retire as a Steeler". He also set postseason single-game rushing records in the first two round of the playoffs and caught 75 passes for 616 yards. That's considerably less than the 7.257-percent rate that applies under the franchise tag for running backs. Read More

Everton vs Sunderland Betting: Back the Black Cats to avoid defeat

Everton vs Sunderland Betting: Back the Black Cats to avoid defeat

We have them at home in two weeks. Ronald Koeman revealed after the match that he was disappointed in the lack of goals from midfield and worked on finishing which obviously showed with Gana's superb goal. "It's something I used to do as a kid and it just happened naturally - it was just instinct", Barkley said. For Sunderland boss David Moyes this was another unhappy return to Goodison and one which exposed the failings of a squad decimated by injuries to key men, compounded by the late ... Read More

Hawks send Tiago Splitter to 76ers for Ersan Ilyasova

Ilyasova, a 6-foot-10 swingman, has become a de facto journeyman in recent seasons, but he projects to be a useful bench piece for president of basketball operations and head coach Mike Budenholzer. Ilyasova is averaging 14.3 points, 5.9 rebounds and 1.7 assists per game, playing an average of just under 27 minutes per game for Philadelphia. Ilyasova, 29, spent his first six seasons with Milwaukee but has since been on the move. Read More

David Moyes suffers miserable return to Everton with Sunderland defeat

David Moyes suffers miserable return to Everton with Sunderland defeat

Sunderland nearly rescued something from the game when Jermain Defoe hit the crossbar with his side just a goal down, but Moyes admitted that there was a gulf in class between the two teams on the day. First Lukaku brought a fine save from Pickford with his first real effort of the afternoon, then Sunderland's chance finally arrived when Adnan Januzaj found Jermain Defoe in the Everton box, only for the striker's shot to bounce downwards from the crossbar and out off the line, Geoff ...

Mavericks Trade for 76ers' Nerlens Noel

Anderson, the No. 21 pick in the 2015 draft, is earning $1.45 million in the second year of his rookie deal with team options for the next two seasons. The Sixers don't think he's worth the money he'll be offered after the season. And that's just fine with Okafor, who will be on the court Friday when the Sixers host the Washington Wizards.

Utah Jazz Interested In Acquiring Dallas Mavericks' Deron Williams

It appears as though the Dallas Mavericks could be pretty active at Thursday's National Basketball Association trade deadline. Williams would have to give his consent to any trade, but he lives in Utah during the off-season. Deron Williams has been a popular trade target due to his veteran status and expiring $9 million contract. Bogut is averaging 3.0 points and 8.3 rebounds in just 26 games so far this season.

The MLB has Approved Changing the Intentional Walk Rule

The MLB has Approved Changing the Intentional Walk Rule

Though getting rid of the four pointless pitches would eliminate roughly a minute of game time per instance, the intentional walk itself is down substantially, with just 932 all of last season (or one every 2.6 games). Most of the rule changes were proposed with the idea of speeding up the game. And the sheer meagerness of time saved by the intentional-walk change reeks of a symbolic gesture in lieu of more meaningful reform. Read More

New Chelsea manager Antonio Conte guided his side to a 4-0 win and vigorously celebrated each goal, which led to criticism from the old boss, per Sami Mokbel of the Daily Mail . Read More

Julius Thomas to be traded to the Dolphins after all

It seems as though the Dolphins believe that re-uniting Thomas with Gase can help turn Thomas' career back around, and provide Miami with the tight end that they need. "If Laremy Tunsil stays healthy and he becomes an all-around left tackle, not just skill-wise, I think he is one of the most gifted athletes I've seen". Read More
