Browns RB Richardson back in pads
BEREA, Ohio (AP) Browns running back Trent Richardson returned to practice Monday. However his status for the team's preseason opener remains uncertain.
Richardson had been held out of Cleveland's two previous training camp sessions with a bruised right shin.
Though Richardson has vowed to play in all four preseason games, coach Rob Chudzinski was noncommittal about his availability when footballtitansshop.com/28_chris_johnson_jersey_authentic_black_limited_cheap.html the Browns host the St. Louis Rams on Thursday.
"It was good to have him back out there, but I have not decided anything about Thursday night in regard to Trent,'' Chudzinski said. "Yes, we want to work him back in, but we are going to be smart with him, just like we've been saying all along.''
Richardson Chris Johnson Jersey wore full pads during the 2 1/2hour practice at Cleveland's team headquarters, working in his usual spot on the firstteam offense. Dion Lewis and Brandon Jackson served as his backups.
The third overall pick of the 2012 draft did not participate in any twominute drills, but did log limited repetitions on goalline plays behind quarterback Brandon Weeden.
"That was what we wanted to do today with Trent because we have a plan for him, in a general sense, to try and keep him healthy,'' Chudzinski said. "We want him to be able to work to get better, and be able to come out here on a daily basis during training camp.''
The Browns are being extra careful with Richardson because he missed a handful of offseason workouts and their entire June minicamp with a strained lower right shin.
The former Alabama standout admitted being frustrated with Chudzinski's decision to rest him over the weekend, saying his latest shin problem "ain't nothing.''
Richardson started 15 games last season despite suffering several broken ribs and torn chest cartilage against Cincinnati on Oct. 14. He sat out the Browns' season finale at Pittsburgh on Dec. 30 with an ankle injury.
Richardson rushed for a teamhigh 950 yards and caught Jake Locker Authentic Jersey 51 passes in 2012 setting a Cleveland rookie record with 12 touchdowns and is expected to play an even bigger role in the offense this fall under coordinator Norv Turner.
"Now that Trent is practicing again, we'll go from there,'' Chudzinski said. "We'll see how he looks tomorrow and http://www.footballtitansshop.com/10_jake_locker_jersey_authentic_black_limited_cheap.html Wednesday, then make a decision about what we're going to do against St. Louis.''
The health of starting right guard Shawn Lauvao also is in question after he was taken www.footballtitansshop.com off the field on a cart. The 63, 315pounder injured his left ankle during a oneonone drill against nose tackle Phil Taylor.
Chudzinski said he will update Lauvao's condition on Tuesday.
"Shawn did put a little weight on it when they helped him up, so I think he just rolled his ankle,'' left tackle Jason Pinkston said. "That's what it appeared like, at least. We're just wishing the best for him.''

"And I'm sure Arizona is saying the same thing."When the Seahawks (84) host the Cardinals (66) at Qwest Field this Sunday, the stakes are pretty simple. If Seattle wins the game, it clinches yet another NFC West title. It doesn't get any more clearcut than that."This is for everything," Seahawks defensive end Darryl Tapp said. "We've worked hard to put ourselves in position to win a fourth consecutive division title, so we've got a lot to play for."Seattle currently leads the division by two games, and a Sunday victory would put the Seahawks three games up with three to go. Louis and competed in the NFC East they'll have to start with a win this Sunday. As important as it is for the Seahawks to wrap up the division, the Cardinals are more desperate to keep the race alive."Obviously, our backs are against the wall Michael Griffin Authentic Jersey in terms of the playoff hunt," quarterback Kurt Warner said in a Wednesday conference call. " It's a big game for us. It's a big game conferencewise and a big game in the big picture of what we want to accomplish."While Warner saw plenty of important games during his days as quarterback of the St. Louis Rams, the Cardinals are in a rather unfamiliar position. The last time Arizona was still alive for a division title in December was six years ago, when the 56 Cardinals entered the month trailing firstplace Philadelphia in the NFC East by two games before falling out of contention."We've come a long way in a year," firstyear Cardinals coach Ken Whisenhunt said, "and we still have a long way to go. I think that this game against a quality opponent like the Seahawks will tell us a lot about where we are."We're just excited to have an opportunity for this game to mean something."While the Seahawks enter Sunday's game on a fourgame winning streak, the Cardinals enter the game with some issues. "But if you don't have them, then you have to trust that the other players on your roster are going to Craig Stevens Authentic Jersey step up."Before Seattle fans start making plans for a Sunday night celebration, they might want to look at what happened when the Seahawks were in a similar situation last season. Seattle held a threegame lead atop the NFC West going into Week 14, yet lost to the Cardinals and San Francisco 49ers in backtoback games to make it interesting. The 49ers and St. Louis Rams snuck back into the hunt but couldn't overtake the Seahawks in the end."Last year we were in the same position, and we let games slip away from us," Tapp said. "For whatever reason, we didn't come to play and match the intensity of our opponents. It put us in a bad position. We've really got to focus this week and get the job done."With two of their final three games on the road, the Seahawks wouldn't mind finishing off the division race a few weeks early."We're both going to come out and play our best football," Russell said of Sunday's game. "We just have to go out and get it done. But we expect their best."Added defensive end Patrick Kerney: "We know what's on the line Sunday. We have to play our Agame, and we know they're going to bring theirs."

Brian is our quarterback
I believe if the Bears are going to be successful on offense, they need to start improving from the middle of the line and work out, not the opposite. Instead of worrying Nate Washington Jersey about the play of tackles Fred Miller and John Tait, Harry Hiestand should first focus on Olin Kreutz. While, Kreutz may have been to the ProBowl in the past, his play is starting to become Dan Jiggettish.
Kreutz is continually being pushed back into the backfield by mammoth defensive tackles and needs help on every run play from the Reuben Brown or Terrence Metcalf. Kreutz is big problem is that he doesn't step to the man he's going to block. He snaps the ball, waits for the defensive tackle to engage him, and then tries to use only his upper body; most often he fails to block his man this way.
If he has to block on the run by himself, Kreutz's man is most often the guy making the tackle or moving the line of scrimmage two yards back. And, when he has to slide off on a linebacker or safety after working a combination block with a guard, he rarely gets there and ends up standing around. (A good way to see if a offensive lineman is blocking his man is for his http://www.footballtitansshop.com/85_nate_washington_jersey_authentic_black_limited_cheap.html name and number to not be read. You can read his on practically every play)
On pass plays, he constantly turns his shoulders creating creases in the protection and does a terrible job picking up stunts and blitzes. In the www.footballtitansshop.com/91_derrick_morgan_jersey_authentic_black_limited_cheap.html Washington game, his man was responsible for flattening Kyle Orton three occasions.
Unless, Kreutz gets help or improves, I would roll Kyle Orton out every play and forget about doing anything up the middle on run plays.
Before the injury to Rex Grossman, the Bears had a good shot of winning 10 games and possibly the playoffs. Now, they'll be hard pressed not to finish last in their division, regardless if the quarterback is Kyle Orton, Jeff Blake, or Kurt Kittner.(Brian Griese, Rex Grossman, or Kyle Orton)
However, the Bears are way ahead of schedule of last season in putting the blame on someone for their offensive woes. Last year, it was Terry Shea (Wade Wilson) and Jonathan Quinn (Rex Grossman). And, this year, it's Chad Hutchinson (only Rex Grossman).
Hutchinson (Grossman) has problems with holding onto to the ball too long, finding a secondary receiver and throwing into double coverage, tipping off his throws, and throwing on the run. But, he shouldn't be held responsible for the whole offense. And, I hope Orton (Griese) can overcome the inept play of his teammates better than Hutchinson (Grossman) and make something out of nothing.
If I was Chad Hutchinson (Rex Grossman), I would accept his share of blame for his play and give out some credit to others as well, including:
Jerry Angelo, for not bringing in another veteran quarterback earlier to compete for the backup spot. (NOT VALID IN 2007)
Ron Turner's playcalling. I would think he found it hard to find a receiver when only three receivers would go out for passes against 7 defenders and as Turner continued to call long developing pass plays when the line wasn't giving him time to throw.(VALID IN 2007)
Offensive Derrick Morgan Authentic Jersey Linemen, for letting the defense get to the pocket before him, forgetting their assignments, false starts, and missing blitzes.(VALID IN 2007 minus false starts and ad not getting a run game together)
Wide Receivers, for not getting to their routes faster, dropping balls in their hands, and not coming back to help him when he was under pressure.(VALID IN 2007)
Tight Ends, for being held up by linebackers on pass plays, loafing through their routes, and allowing pressure to get to him on pass plays.(VALID IN 2007)
Running Backs, for deflecting passes into defender's hands, missing blocks on pass protection, and failing to get out on pass plays fast enough to the flats to give him another option when other receivers weren't open.(VALID IN 2007, include fumbles and blitz pickup, but, minus pass deflections)
Special Teams, for getting a penalty on most of the returns and pinning the Bears back inside their own 20 yard line.(NOT VALID IN 2007)
Goodbye, Chad (Rex). Hopefully, the next team you go to will not make you the 'scapegoat' for all their troubles. We've rooted for less and we've all waited on Rex who had more chances to succeed than Cade McNown, Moses Moreno, Craig Krenzel, Chad Hutchinson, Shane Matthews, etc. Jonathan Quinn! And I could care less if Rex ever plays again I WANT REAL QB IN A BEARS UNIFORM NOW AND ALWAYS!!!! Don't even get me started on Ceddy Benson, Okay, I'll at least say the jury is still out on him unlike a certain Curtis Enis or Rashaan Salaam or Raymont "Ultra Back" Harris or even ATrain who by the way didn't exactly light it up either! How can a team known for great runningbacks settle sooo low? That's like not playing Defense. WE SHOULD HAVE NIPPED IT AT NEAL ANDERSON!

Brentwood teacher shares her story about working in Akeem Ayers Jersey NYC on 9
That day, Phillips, a newbie in New York City, was working just 200 yards away from the World Trade Center, where two planes hijacked by alQaeda terrorists crashed into the north and south towers. Two other hijacked planes crashed that day, one into the Pentagon and the other in Shanksville, Pa. More than 3,000 people died.
I lucky, Phillips said. All I did was go to work that day. I had a pretty average job and there I find myself in the middle of all of this madness. . It definitely changes your perspective on things.
Twelve years after the attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, Phillips continues to share her story with students about what she witnessed. For several years, she has discussed the events with sixthgrade social studies classes at Brentwood Middle School.
Phillips story brings the attacks of 9/11 to life for students, said Principal David Radcliffe.
You can read about it or hear about it, but they weren around to see it happen. To them it a historical event, he said. To see someone that teaches in our building that was there makes it real for them.
Phillips, a 1997 Mt. Lebanon High School graduate, received a bachelor of administration degree from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in 2001. After graduation, she obtained a job in New York City at Merrill Lynch, on a client associate wealth management team managing portfolios for families and nonprofits.
She http://www.footballtitansshop.com/2_rob_bironas_jersey_authentic_black_limited_cheap.html moved to New York City on Sept. 1, 2001, and started her job on Sept. 6.
I knew how to get from home to work and that was about it, she said. I was very new.
That Sept. team meeting.
The first plane that struck the World Trade Center caused the building Phillips was in to shake. Once people began to realize that a plane had crashed into a building, phones in the office began to ring with questions about the market, Phillips said.
Building security came on and said, there a fire in the other building. It contained and to stay where we are, Phillips said.
When the second plane hit, Phillips building was evacuated. As employees were walking down the 40 flights of stairs, someone shouted that the Pentagon had been struck.
When we got outside and looked up, it was crazy. The whole sky was full of paper and fire, Phillips said. It so horrible to describe.
Grown men were sobbing in the streets.
When you work in the financial district, it the whole Wall Street deal, Phillips said. It the total package men that are used to being in control of things, and they were just weeping.
Some people were waiting outside for friends. Others were running. Chaplains were standing nearby praying.
Phillips waited with coworkers as her boss went back to look for a relative of another coworker in their building.
Then, the first tower imploded. Dust from Rob Bironas Black Jersey the first building went the other direction, but when the second building started to fall the dust came in Phillips direction.
We had to start to run, she said. I just remember looking back and thinking, if it keeps coming this way, there no way we going to be able to outrun it and I don know what in it.
The wind shifted and the dust settled in another direction.
Phillips spent the afternoon attempting to get to her apartment " even following the Merrill Lynch CEO at one point, knowing that wherever he went would be safe.
All day, footballtitansshop.com/56_akeem_ayers_jersey_authentic_black_limited_cheap.html she said, while she was scared, she knew she would be OK. But she was worried about her family.
Compared to so many others that day, my day really was not that bad, Phillips said.
The Merrill Lynch office was damaged and Phillips office was moved to New Jersey for six months. When Phillips and other staffers returned to their office, it was eerie, she said. The notebook left on her desk, with her glasses nearby, still read Sept. 11.

Breaking down the Redskins' 53
For the most part, it seems clear whom Coach Mike Shanahan will retain on the roster as the Redskins finalize things for the Sept. 12 season opener against the NFC East rival Dallas Cowboys at FedEx Field. As is often the case, however, there could be some surprising additions and subtractions.
It was easier to determine the roster composition in advance of cutdown day during the previous regime because more people at Redskins Park talked about the process. Shanahan runs a tighter ship.
But based on conversations with my colleagues on the beat, Rick Maese and Barry Svrluga, and people we trust at the complex, here's our take on the roster before the Kevin Walter Jersey Redskins face the Arizona Cardinals in preseason finale Friday night at University of Phoenix Stadium. And, obviously, things could change after tonight's game because of injuries and other factors.
Quarterbacks (3): , and .
Comment: It makes sense to carry three quarterbacks because McNabb, 33, has played a full 16game schedule only once (2008) in the past six seasons, and twice during that span played in fewer than 11 games (200506). Shanahan appeared to signal his intention to keep Beck in rewarding him recently with a contract extension. While Beck failed to impress during previous stops in Miami and Baltimore, Shanahan apparently liked him coming out of BYU. Grossman, who worked under offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan with the Houston Texans last season, is firmly entrenched as McNabb's primary backup.
Comment: "Big Mike" had a good offseason and was rolling along in the preseason until he suffered a knee injury in the second preseason game. He expects to be ready for the season opener.
Wide receivers (6): , , , , and .
Comment: Moss is still Washington's No. 1 receiver after all these years. The Redskins persuaded Joey Galloway, 38, not to retire, and it appears he will begin his 16th NFL season as their starting split end. Armstrong is the feelgood story of the preseason. Thomas possesses the talent to accomplish big things, but the Shanahans want more from him. Austin helped himself in the important third preseason game. Malcolm Kelly would have been on the roster had he not aggravated his severe hamstring injury, prompting the team to put him on the seasonending injuredreserve list. Kelly's misfortune opened the door for the diminutive Banks, who has stirred excitement on punt returns, though sometimes for the wrong reasons.
Comment: Cooley has fully recovered from the fractured ankle that cut short his 2009 season. He has developed a good rapport with McNabb and could have a personalbest season. The Redskins believe Davis possesses Pro Bowl talent. They plan to utilize two tightend sets often this season. Paulsen, 23, has shown some talent that could be developed.
Offensive line (9): C , LT , RT , LG , RG , T , G/C , T , G/C .
Comment: Rabach continues to anchor the line and Williams and Brown could provide the Redskins with a pair of outstanding tackles for a long time. But Williams will experience growing pains early in his rookie season while facing some of the league's top edge rushers and Brown is still regaining form after sitting out the entire 2009 season because of a hip injury and sports hernia. Hicks, a savvy, versatile veteran, may be more productive in a reserve role similar to that of the one he filled well for the Minnesota Vikings. He's needed on the firstteam, however, because Mike Williams (blood clots) will not play this season. Lichtensteiger and Montgomery play multiple positions, which is important during the season because not everyone will be active. Heyer is back on the bench after starting 37 games the past three seasons. Robinson is an athletic tackle.
Defensive line (6): RDE/NT , NT , LDE , DE , DE , DE .
Comment: After his tumultuous offseason, Haynesworth recently confided in friends he plans to have the best season of his career. But Kemoeatu is the key to the Redskins' new defensive scheme. The hard worker missed the entire 2009 season because of an Achilles' injury, and nose tackle is the most important position in the 34. If Kemoeatu is over the nose, Haynesworth will be pleased because he can play end. Carriker, sidelined the entire 2007 season because of a shoulder injury, failed to find success with the St. Louis Rams after they selected him 13th overall in the 2007 draft. Golston is steady and Daniels and Holliday have seen it all in their long, productive careers.
Linebackers (9): ILB , ILB , OLB , OLB , OLB , OLB , http://www.footballtitansshop.com/87_kevin_walter_jersey_authentic_black_limited_cheap.html ILB , ILB and ILB .
Comment: The leader of the defense, Fletcher was a firsttime Pro Bowl selection last season in his 12th season in the league. Shanahan and defensive coordinator Jim Haslett just love Feltcher, who could have another Pro Bowltype season if Kemoeatu stays healthy or Haynesworth changes his mind about playing the nose. McIntosh is coming off the best season of his career and highly motivated to receive a lucrative contract offer when he becomes eligible for unrestricted free agency after the season. Orakpo appears headed for stardom and Carter is optimistic about making a successful transition from defensive end. Alexander is the Redskins' most versatile player regardless of position. Wilson, Henson and Riley should be big contributors on special teams. Blades's spot on the roster does not seem as secure as it did under the former regime.
Defensive backs (9): LCB , RCB , SS , FS , S y, CB , CB , S and S .
Comment: Hall, who had two interceptions in three preseason games, is among the top playmakers in the league and could thrive in the new defense. Rogers also had a good preseason and Haslett plans to use him in a variety of ways from his cornerback spot. Landry is thrilled about moving back to strong and plans to show the league a new and improved "Dirty 30." Moore was the star of training camp on defense and his knee injury is a setback for the whole defense. Carter, signed because Moore will be sidelined early in the season after surgery, played in the Pittsburgh Steelers' defense, on which the Redskins' scheme is based. It appears Doughty will return to the starting lineup with Moore out, and Horton is ready if Doughty falters.
Specialists www.footballtitansshop.com/82_delanie_walker_jersey_authentic_black_limited_cheap.html (3): PK , P l and LS .
Comment: Gano and Bidwell performed well in the preseason. Sundberg struggled at the outset of training camp but appeared to make progress.
