I'm Not Saying The Broncos Put A Hit Out On Joe Flacco, But...

This is all pretty suspicious, no? After last week’s Denver Broncos loss, wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders said, among other criticisms, “We need to call better plays.” He then quickly disappeared off the team in a trade with San Francisco. Now, after the Broncos lost again on Sunday in a heartbreaker to the Colts, and QB Joe Flacco publicly fumed about the 2-6 team’s cowardice in its late-game...

Kelechi Osemele, NFLPA Now Considering Legal Action Against Jets' Doctor [Update]

The Jets continue to look crueler and dumber in their feud with Kelechi Osemele. The left guard spent weeks begging the team to approve a procedure to repair a torn labrum in his left shoulder and decided to have it without their blessing on Friday, after an independent doctor he consulted recommended immediate surgery. ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported Saturday that Osemele’s surgery was...

Dear The Jets: What The Hell Are You Doing?

Dear The Jets: What The Hell Are You Doing?

In the Year of Our Lord 2019, an NFL franchise is doing all it can to force an injured player to postpone surgery for the sake of the team, to the point of withholding his pay. What, exactly, are the Jets trying to prove by insisting that left guard Kelechi Osemele wait until after the season to have the torn labrum in his right shoulder repaired, and by avoiding all questions about the...

Tacko Fall Is In Concussion Protocol Because He Bonked His Head On The Ceiling

Here’s how the big man described his run-in to MassLive:

Before the Boston Celtics shoot around at the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia, Fall explained to MassLive that he was trying to wash...

Kelechi Osemele Will Have His Shoulder Surgery, Whether The Jets Like It Or Not

Wednesday, Osemele said he’ll have the surgery Friday, whether the team authorizes it or not. Osemele, who cited the recommendations of two outside specialists last week, now says he has a third opinion from a doctor who recommends...

Mikko Rantanen's Leg Did Something Legs Aren't Supposed To Do

Mikko Rantanen's Leg Did Something Legs Aren't Supposed To Do

It seems only fair to show you this before you’ve had breakfast. So: wanna see something gross?


The Colorado Avalanche were my preseason pick to win the Stanley Cup, and it would be cowardly to change that now. But also no one reads our hockey blogs so I can just switch my pick later if things go south and no one would be the wiser. What were we talking about? Oh, yes, Avalanche forward Mikko...

Jets In Feud With Offensive Lineman Refusing To Play Through Shoulder Injury [Update]

Two doctors have told Jets offensive lineman Kelechi Osemele that he needs surgery to repair a torn labrum in his shoulder, Osemele says. But the Jets believe the 30-year-old left guard can play through the injury and postpone surgery until the end of the season, and are reportedly planning to fine or suspend Osemele for conduct detrimental to the team if he doesn’t practice this weekend....

Zion Williamson's Knee Is All Jacked Up Now? What The Fuck!

The optimistic framing of that tweet is not really doing much for me. This sucks! Someone please remove some stem cells from my body and inject them into Zion’s knee.

Joe Biden Tweets Best Recovery Wishes To Elena Delle Donne, Literally While She Is Playing In The WNBA Finals

Democratic presidential candidate and absolute spring chicken Joe Biden, who definitely has a very strong sense of what’s going on around him at all times and does not appreciate you constantly dabbing at his chin with a handkerchief, took some time out of his busy campaign schedule Sunday to wish Mystics superstar Elena Delle Donne a successful recovery from the disc herniation that knocked...

Sam Darnold Spleen Update: I Want To Live

Sam Darnold Spleen Update: I Want To Live

Bad news, Jets fans: Sam Darnold is officially out for Sunday’s game against the Eagles. The team gave Darnold reps in practice this week, but in the end that pesky, mononucleosis-bloated spleen of his just would not cooperate. The initial prognosis warned it might be as long as six weeks before Darnold could handle contact again, and yet Friday’s update still appears to have registered as...

Braves Pitcher Injures Self While Warming Up On The Mound, Replacement Gives Up Dinger On First Strike [Update]

Before he got a chance to throw his first pitch of the postseason, Chris Martin of the Atlanta Braves was taken off the mound with an athletic trainer by his side just as the top of the eighth inning was officially about to begin. Martin appeared to injure himself during his initial warmup pitches, which is the type of thing that seems to only befall teams from Atlanta trying to succeed in...

Right On Cue, Elena Delle Donne's Back Is All Screwed Up

Right On Cue, Elena Delle Donne's Back Is All Screwed Up

Elena Delle Donne left Game 2 of the WNBA Finals with back spasms after just three minutes in the first quarter Tuesday night, not 24 hours after I (a blithering, cheeky idiot!) proclaimed the Washington Mystics more or less invincible . The Connecticut Sun managed to steal the game on Washington turf, 99-87 to even the series. Wednesday evening, the Mystics announced that Delle Donne’s MRI...

At Least 16 MLB Fans Were Maimed By Foul Balls This Year

For the first time since Major League Baseball required the extension of foul ball nets to the ends of the dugouts before the 2018 season, individual teams have begun to take the injuries suffered by their fans seriously.

As detailed in a story I reported earlier this year , foul ball injuries can be life-threatening, lead to brain damage, or smush an eyeball like a grape:

The Denver Broncos Are Now Living In A World Of Piss

The Denver Broncos Are Now Living In A World Of Piss

The Denver Broncos are one of three 0-4 NFL teams (assuming no tie, there should be one more after Bengals-Steelers tonight), and they’ve achieved that record thanks to generous helpings of incompetence and rotten luck. Also, they’ll now have to ride out the rest of this season without one of their best players, as edge rusher Bradley Chubb is done with a torn ACL.

Chubb returned from what...

Sam Darnold On State Of His Spleen: "Going To Do What It's Going To Do"

Sam Darnold On State Of His Spleen: "Going To Do What It's Going To Do"

Everyone in the NFL has one question on their minds: What’s up with Sam Darnold’s least cool organ? Thankfully, there’s an update.

The Jets quarterback has been “OUT INDEFINITELY” with “MONONUCLEOSIS” since the start of Week 2, though he could return to the field as soon as this weekend against the Eagles. But he can only replace the hapless Luke Falk if his spleen cooperates. ESPN’s Chris...

Texas Tech's Eli Howard On His Dangerous Hit: I'm Sorry To My Coach, My Athletic Director, Oh, And Also The Guy I Injured

With just over 10 minutes left in the third quarter of Oklahoma-Texas Tech, Red Raiders defensive lineman Eli Howard V delivered a dangerous low hit to Sooners running back Kennedy Brooks on a return. While the hit would have been considered to be dirty regardless of the context, it was made significantly worse by the fact that returner Douglas Coleman III had already stepped out of bounds...

Add Kyle Kuzma's Ominous Foot Injury To The Pile Of Crabmeat Accumulating Around The Lakers

Add Kyle Kuzma's Ominous Foot Injury To The Pile Of Crabmeat Accumulating Around The Lakers

The word “indefinitely” is one of the most ominous in sports, and never more so than when it’s being attached to news about a very tall guy’s foot. Theoretically it can mean “He could be fine any time now, we just don’t know how soon.” In practice, far more often than not it means “This man’s body has fallen into several detached pieces.”

On a related note, the Los Angeles Lakers announced...

Second Player Of The Night Stretchered Off Following Brutal On-Field Collision

Second Player Of The Night Stretchered Off Following Brutal On-Field Collision

Thursday night’s Eagles road win over the Packers was bookended by a pair of scary head injuries suffered by players who’d eventually be strapped to backboards and stretchered off the field. Jamaal Williams of the Packers went down on an illegal late hit early in the first quarter; Avonte Maddox of the Eagles went down on an even scarier-looking friendly-fire hit late in the fourth.

Jamaal Williams Taken Off On Stretcher Following Brutal Late Hit From Derek Barnett

Jamaal Williams Taken Off On Stretcher Following Brutal Late Hit From Derek Barnett

On the Packers’ first play of the game, Aaron Rodgers completed a pass to running back Jamaal Williams. After a group of Eagles defenders stood him up on what appeared to be a pass for no gain, Derek Barnett made his way over to the group of bodies and charged at Williams to make an entirely unnecessary hit. The violent collision appeared to cause Williams’s body to lock up, and Williams...
