Brandin Cooks Knocked Out Of Super Bowl LII Brandin Cooks Knocked Out Of Super Bowl LII
- February 05, 2018

While at first it looked the pair knocked helmets, on second inspection the hit was to Cooks' upper body. They had offered their starting safety, Malcom Jenkins , and three mid-round picks in exchange for Cooks. That was Cooks' first catch of the game, and it led to him leaving the game. The announcement in the press box came just a few minutes after the play, so it's highly likely the head injury is actually a concussion. (more...)

Alexis Who? Henrikh Mkhitaryan's Creative Display Against Everton Has Arsenal Fans Purring Alexis Who? Henrikh Mkhitaryan's Creative Display Against Everton Has Arsenal Fans Purring
- February 05, 2018

Redskins still considering tagging Kirk Cousins Redskins still considering tagging Kirk Cousins
- February 04, 2018

Tagging Cousins would prevent him from signing where he pleases once the new NFL league year begins on March 14th, because he wouldn't become a true unrestricted free agent. Those concerns could scare Washington away from franchise-tagging Cousins. If he wants to, Cousins can balk at signing off on the franchise tag designation. (more...)
Leicester City manager Claude Puel hopes Riyad Mahrez can clear his head Leicester City manager Claude Puel hopes Riyad Mahrez can clear his head
- February 04, 2018

In general, it doesn't pay to keep players at the club if their mind is elsewhere, even if Leicester may believe their decision to keep Mahrez until now was justified. They weren't as good at the back as we have normally seen them since the turn of the year or as clinical up front (just two shots on target). Should Mahrez back down, his next appearance could come at the Etihad Stadium against City when Leicester travel to Manchester next Saturday. (more...)

Carragher can't see Arsenal pair Aubameyang and Lacazette succeeding together Carragher can't see Arsenal pair Aubameyang and Lacazette succeeding together
- February 04, 2018
