De’ Custom MLB Red Sox Jersey Anthony Thomas Continues to Make an Impact All Over the Field

Thomas had a 95-yard kickoff return for a touchdown on Friday night

The Kansas City Chiefs have trotted out one of the best special teams units in all of football over the past four seasons, and if De’Anthony Thomas’ performance on Friday night was any indication, that trend should continue.

Thomas fielded a kickoff midway through the second quarter of Kansas City’s preseason loss to Seattle and dashed 95 yards for a touchdown, pulling the Chiefs within three at the time of the score.

For Thomas, his strategy on the play was simple.

“Beat him,” Thomas said. “I used my speed to get to the edge and from there on, just finish it.”

The return was an encouraging s http://www.ecustombaseballgears.com/ ign for Thomas, who will likely handle the majority of kickoff returns this year with Tyreek Hill transitioning into a larger role on offense, though returning the ball is nothing new for the fifth-year professional.

Thomas has brought back 35 kickoffs so far in his caree boston red sox custom jersey r, averaging 25.8 yards per return, the 11th best mark in football since 2014 among players to return at least 30 kicks. In fact, Thomas actually Baltimore Orioles  had more kickoff returns last season (15 Men’s Authentic Custom Stitched Boston Red Sox Alternate Baseball Jersey Red ) than Hill did (14).

Thomas’ mark extends beyond just returning the football as well, as he’s developed into a valuable contributor as a gunner on special teams.

“He is pound-for-pound one of the toughest guys we’ve got and it holds true,” said Special Teams Coordinator Dave Toub last week of Thomas. “He has a nose for the football. He told me before the season started that he’s going to make all the tackles on kickoff. You love guys like that.”

It’s an interesting dynamic for the 5-foot-8, 176 pound Thomas, who excels at both flying by defenders on returns a Men’s Boston Red Sox Majestic Alternate Navy Flex Base Authentic Custom Jersey nd making tackles on kickoffs.

“It’s different in all aspects,” Thomas said. “It’s tough going down there as a gunner when you know you have guys trying to block you and stuff like that, but I just go out there and try to make plays and just understand what’s going on. I listen to Coach Toub. He’s one of the best in the business and I feel  Women’s Personalized Stitched Any Name Any Number Baltimore Orioles Home White Jersey like he’s turned me into a different player.”

Thomas is no stranger to taking on a variety of different roles for Kansas City. Since 2014, he’s one of just three players to handle 20-plus carries, make 40-plus catches, return 60-plus pu Men’s Authentic Custom Baltimore Orioles Alternate Baseball Jersey Orange nts and 30-plus kicks, along with Miami’s Jarvis Landry and New Orleans’ Ted Ginn Jr. 

Thomas’ versatility hasn’t gone unnoticed by Chiefs Head Coach Andy Reid.

“He’s played a little bit of everything,” Reid said. “He’s played outside receiver and slot receiver. He’s really done all the special teams and almost turned into a core special teams guy and he’s doing a nice job on returns. For a smaller guy, to make the plays and to play as physically as he does, is really something.”

Now a veteran in the league, Thomas is looking beyond his own personal performance and wants to make his teammates better. 

“I feel like I’m working my way to be a captain on special teams and just spark and motivate the other guys,” Thomas said. “We want to go out there and just make plays whether its punt, kickoff return or any of those phases.”

Catch Thomas and the rest of the Chiefs in action on Thursday as Kansas City closes out the preseason against the Tennessee Titans at Arrowhead Stadium. Kickoff is at 7:30 p.m. CT on KCTV5 or 101.1 The Fox.

Chris Jone Custom MLB Red Sox Jersey s Seems to Have Picked Up Where He Left Off Last Year

It was an impactful Friday night for Jones, who was making his preseason debut

After missing all of training camp and the first two games of the preseason because of offseason knee surgery, Kansas City Chiefs’ second-year defensive lineman Chris Jones made his preseason debut Friday night against the Seattle Seahawks.

In just 27 defensive snaps, Jones made his presence felt and looked like he was just pi Men’s Boston Red Sox Majestic Alternate Navy Flex Base Authentic Custom Jersey cking up where he left off last year, when he finished the year as one of the most dominant interior defensive lineman in the league.

On Friday, Pro Football Focus had Jones as particularly dominant against the run, f Baltimore Orioles inishing with two run-stops in just eight opportunities.

In traditional numbers, Jones finished with four tackles and one really impressive sack.

The sack came early in the third quarter with the Chiefs trailing 16-10 and the Seahawks facing a second-and-10 from the Chiefs’ 22-yard line. Jones was lined up at the right defensive end spot and quickly blew past the right tackle on an inside move and got to Seahawks’ quart boston red sox custom jersey erback Russell Wilson for a loss of seven yards.

“It felt so good,” Jones said after the game of getting back on the field. “I felt like I was back in school playing college guys again. Just getting th Custom Red Sox Jersey e feel for t Custom Orioles Jersey he game, it was pretty good though.”

Jones helped lead a Chi Men’s Authentic Custom Stitched Boston Red Sox Alternate Baseball Jersey Red efs’ defense that held the Seahawks to just 1 of 4 inside the red zone, despite giving up chunks of yards between the 20s.

“Preseason is not about running schemes,” Jones explained. “It’s about playing base defense. They knew what was coming.”

Most importantly for Jones, the game ended and he felt good physically. He’s obviously a huge part of this defense moving forward, and the Chiefs face the defending Super Bowl champion New England Patriots in less than two weeks.

“I feel good,” Jones added. “I’ve still got to get the pace of the game and be in game shape, but other than that I feel good.”

The only projected starting defensive lineman who played more snaps Friday night than Jones was Allen Bailey, who had 32 snaps and finished with one tackle.

“We were able to get [Jones] in and get him those reps, and really all the guys, enough reps that you feel pretty comfortable going into the season,” Chiefs coach Andy Reid said after the game. “But one thing that’s tough to do is a rotation with those guys and keep it in sync when you’re doing it, b http://www.ecustombaseballgears.com/ ut they’ll continue to work on it.”

If Jones can build upon what we saw from him last year as a rookie—combined with a healthy-Justin Houston, who missed Friday’s game because of an illness—the Chiefs defense, and particularly, their ability to get after the passer—will be a serious problem for opposing teams.

The Chiefs get back to work on Sunday as they prepare for the fourth and final preseason game of the year Thursday night against the Tennessee Titans at Arrowhead Stadium. 

C Canadiens Custom Jersey hiefs Injury Update: RB Spencer Ware Likely Out For Season

Ware injured his knee in Friday’s preseason loss to Seattle

Kans Men’s Customized Reebok Montreal Canadiens Authentic 2016 Winter Classic White Hockey Jersey as City Chiefs Trainer Rick Burkholder had an update on injured running back Spencer Ware on Sunday morning.

“(Ware) has a torn posterior cruciate ligament (PCL), and with that ligament often times with rehab you can play. His issue is that he also has some damage to what’s called the posterolateral corner of his knee,” Burkholder said. “That’s the outside back portion of his knee that’s made up of ligaments and tendons. He damaged those and, at this point in time, our medical staff believes th NHL 100 Classic Celebration at he needs season-ending surgery to correct that problem. Like with all these significant injuries, we’ll exhaust all our options, look at second opinions and do what’s best for his knee and his career. We’re in that space now where  Tomas Plekanec Jersey we’re still evaluating what’s going on, but our medical staff believes that he needs surgery.”

Ware suffered the injury on Kansas City’s opening drive in last Friday’s preseason loss to Seattle and was carted off the field. The four-year veteran was the Chiefs’ leading rusher last season with 921 yards.

In Montreal Canadiens Winter Classic Jersey  addition to Ware, defensive lineman Bennie Logan and defensive backs Jacoby Glenn (concussion), Steven Nelson (groin) and Ron Parker (sprained ankle) did not practice on Sunday.

Another defensive back, Terrance Mi Customized Adidas Men’s Montreal Canadiens Authentic Home Red Ice Hockey Jersey t http://www.becanadiensfans.com/ chell, will start easing back into practice this week, according to Head Coach Andy Reid. Mitchell has been absent from practice sin Carey Price Jersey ce Aug. 13 with a hamstring strain.  

“He’s doing well on the rehab part,” Reid said. “There’s a chance he takes a few snaps in practice just to see where he’s at. He probably won’t play in the game, but he’ll start easing back into practice. He’s heading in the right direction, we’re just taking the steps on that. He had a pretty good tweak there.”

Reid also provided an update on linebacker Justin Houston Custom Canadiens Jersey , who missed Friday’s game in Seattle with an illness.

“We’ve had a little bit of this going around,” Reid sa Montreal Canadiens Ice Hockey Jersey id. “(Defensive lineman Tanoh Kpassagnon) had the same thing. We have a couple guys that are feeling a little queasy in the stomach, so hopefully we’ll nail this. Those guys are doing better. We have a couple of other guys that are trying to shake it off a little bit.”

The Chiefs have a short week of practice as they close out the preseason against the Tennessee Titans on Thursday night at Arrowhead Stadium. Kickoff is at 7:30 p.m. CT on KCTV5.

Chiefs Rookie RB Kareem Hunt: “I’m  Joe Carter Blue Jays Ready for This Challenge”

The Chiefs’ running backs room will have a different look without Spence Men’s Customized Toronto Blue Jays Majestic Flexbase Authentic Alternate Royal Blue Jersey r Ware

The news broke Sunday morning that Kansas City Chi Women’s Toronto Blue Jays Josh Donaldson Scarlet Fashion Canada Day Red FlexBase Authentic Jersey efs starting running back Spencer Ware will likely have season-ending surgery from the knee injury suffered Friday night against the Seattle Seahawks.

Ware, who had three carries for 15 yards and two receptions for nine yards before the injury, now gives way to a trio of Chiefs’ running backs who wil Blue Jays Canada Day Jersey l try and step up in his place less than two weeks before the season opener against the New England Patriots on September 7.

“I think we’re going to be OK there,” Chiefs coach Andy Reid noted of his running backs’ group Sunday mo Toronto Blue Jays rning. “Now, listen, are you going to replace [Ware]? No, he’s a good football player, but the young kid (Kareem Hunt) will step in and he’ll do a nice job for us, and Charcandrick (West) has got reps under his belt, and C.J. (Spiller) has reps under his belt, so we’re OK.

“I don’t want to take anything away from [Ware] and how imp Kevin Pillar Jersey ortant he was to our team, but that’s a position where we have a little strength, so we should be OK.”

“Any time an injury like that happens you feel for them,” quarterback Alex Smith added. “Spencer has pu Custom Blue Jays Jersey t in a ton of time and worked really hard. You hate to see stuff like that happen. It is a part of the game. We have dealt with injuries before like every team, so we’ve got to go—got to roll.

“We have a good group of running backs with a lot of depth there…just have to find a way.”

Reid confirmed that Hunt—the rookie third-round pick from Toledo—will be the first to step i Men’s Mitchell and Ness Vintage 1993 Joe Carter Toronto Blue Jays Alternate Royal Blue Throwback Jersey nto that starting role, although the other two guys will mix in as well.

Hunt, who Reid said has really stepped it up over the past few weeks, finished Friday’s game against the Seahawks with nine carries for 39 yards.

“It means everything,” Hunt said of the trust in him to be given this opportunity. “It means that [Reid] trusts and believes in me. I’m very excited to be taking on such a big role, and I’m ready for the challenge.”

Through three preseason games, Hunt has carried the ball 18 times for a total of 79 yards (4.4 ypc), adding four receptions for 32 yards as well.

“All the guys are going to get reps and carries,” Hunt said. “We’ve got West and Spiller, and they’ve played a lot of football already. They’ve been helping me out a lot.

“We’ve got to step up for [Ware],” Hunt added. “He’s a great guy and a great back, and we have some big shoes to fill.”

Hunt finished his college career as Toledo’s all-time leading rusher with 4,945 yards and 44 touchdowns, but he recalled the first opportunity he was given as a true freshman came under similar circumstances as he’s facing right now.

“A guy named David Fluellen went down and I had to step and start midway through the season,” Hunt explained. “I was kind of nervous. I just had  Joe Carter Jersey to make sure I took it play-by-play and wasn’t looking forward and trying to do everything at once.”

Including the game Fluellen was injured against Navy midway through that 2013 season, Hunt stepped in and carried the ball 125 times for 789 yards with six touchdowns in the final six games of their season—averaging almost 6.3 yards per carry.

Hunt stepped up for his team when he was needed back then. 

Fluellen is now a member of the Tennessee Titans, who in a weird twist of fate, the Chiefs face Thursday night in the preseason finale at Arrowhead Stadium.

“Be under control under pressure,” Hunt explained is his focus. “The game is really fast sometimes and I tell myself to just relax. Don’t make it bigger than what it is.”

After three preseason games, Hunt said the game is slowing down for him, but understands it’ll go up another notch when the regular season begins.

“I noticed that I’m really starting to be able to recognize the defenses more and see the fronts,” he said. “It’s going to be a big stage with a lot of hype (against the Patriots). I’m just going to stay in my element.”

Patrick Mahomes to Start  Joe Carter Blue Jays on Thursday Against Tennessee

The rookie quarterback will start Kansas City’s preseason finale

The Kansas City Chiefs’ final preseason game will be one to remember for rookie quarterback Patrick Mahomes, as he’ll make his first career start under center, Head Coach Andy Reid announced on Sunday.  

Mahomes and the Chiefs close out the preseason on Thursday night against the Tennessee Titans at Arrowhead Stadium.

Quarterbacks  Men’s Toronto Blue Jays Kevin Pillar Majestic Scarlet Fashion Canada Day Red Flex Base Authentic Jersey Tyler Bray and Joel Stave will also play against the Titans,  Josh Donaldson Jersey according to Reid, though he didn’t suggest how long each would play.

While Thursday’s contest is still just a preseas Men’s Mitchell and Ness Vintage 1993 Joe Carter Toronto Blue Jays Alternate Royal Blue Throwback Jersey on game, Mahomes is excited about the opportunity.

“You prepare hard every single week as if you were going to be the starter, but this week is going to be special just to get that first start under my belt,” Mahomes Women’s Toronto Blue Jays Josh Donaldson Scarlet Fashion Canada Day Red FlexBase Authentic Jersey  said. “It’s a preseason game, but we’ll all be treating it like it’s a real one. It’s an opportunity for a lot o Blue Jays Canada Day Jersey f guys to get some reps and  Custom Blue Jays Jersey they’re going to be playing hard every single play.”

Mahomes will likely lead much of the second-team offense on the field on Thursday as most of the starters focus their attention to the regular season opener at New England on Sept. 7.

One of those players getting the game off is quarterback Alex Smith, but he intends to be a resource for Mahomes and the other quarterbacks even though he’s not hitting the field himself.

“I’m still in that quarterback room and still a teammate,” Smith said. “These guys are getting ready to play, so I’m going to be respectful of that and helpful in any way that I can.”

Mahomes has put together a strong preseason to begin his rookie campaign and will look to build on that  Toronto Blue Jays against Tennessee.  

“I feel like I’ve gotten better every single time I’ve been out there,” Mahomes said. “That’s with learning the playbook more and more, trying to get the Men’s Customized Toronto Blue Jays Majestic Flexbase Authentic Alternate Royal Blue Jersey  protections right and just trying to do everything right. It’s a process. You have to come in every single day and work hard to get in that meeting room, to get in that film room and do whatever you can – the mental side of it as well as the physical side.”

What We Learned From Media Availability On  Kevin Piilar Blue Jays Sunday

Alex Smith, Patrick Mahomes, CJ Spiller and Kareem Hunt spoke to the media Sunday

QB ALEX SMITH

Q: With the news of Spencer Ware’s injury, how does that change things?

SMITH: “I didn’t even know totally, just kind of still learning today what’s going on. Any time an injury happens like that, obviously you feel for them. Spencer has put in a ton of time and worked really hard. You hate to see stuff like that happen. It’s a part of the game. We have dealt with injuries before like every team, so we’ve got to go, got to roll. We’ve got a good group of running backs. We have a lot of depth there which I think is nice. Just have to find a way.”

Q: What do you lose without him there?

SMITH: “Spencer was so good at everything. I felt like he was a guy, especially for a bigger guy, could kind of do everything. He was good in space, good receiver for a bigger guy, physical runner but I still felt like he was nimble enough to do a lot of that stuff in that space and get the edge. I think that’s a strength of his, that he can do everything. You hurt that, right? There is a guy that put a lot of time in and a lot of reps, doing all of those things for our offense, it will definitely be tough to replace.”

Q: You have seen a lot of rookie running backs. How is Kareem Hunt doing? Is he more advanced than you have seen before?

SMITH: “Yeah, really talented. And definitely with the ball in his hands I think (he has) the same kind of style actually, a little bigger though and runs physical. Still got some speed. I think the thing though is just being able to handle that. Backs have to handle everything. They have to handle run game. They have to handle protections. They have to handle pass game. We put a lot on their shoulders so they have to be able to handle that all. I think that is the biggest thing for a young back is being able to handle all of those things mentally.”

Q: Do you think this role is too big for him at this point?

SMITH: “No, I think it starts with a great coach in EB (Eric Bieniemy). I think he will work hard to get him prepared. I mean we are not going to put everything on him either. We have always been that way. We don’t put everything on one person. You know we will all kind of have to step in to fill that void.”

Q: What about the depth in that position?

SMITH: “I think when you have an injury like, depth is important to be able to handle that. I think we are in a situation where you hate for something like this to happen, but we do have good depth at that spot. Thankful for that.”

Q: Sometimes young guys are quiet when it com Men’s Customized Toronto Blue Jays Majestic Flexbase Authentic Alternate Royal Blue Jersey es to asking questions. What have you seen from Hunt in that regard with your ability to comm Men’s Mitchell and Ness Vintage 1993 Joe Carter Toronto Blue Jays Alternate Royal Blue Throwback Jersey unicate?

SMITH: “I think he’s been good. Preseason has been great for him to kind of go out there and Josh Donaldson Jersey  sometimes you have to make adjustments on the fly. It is loud, it is noisy and communication is not as clear as it is in practice. You really have to know your rules there, especially in a loud environment. So I think a little bit is just try to go out there and trust yourself too come game time. Don’t overthink those things. Don’t stress over that too much. Don’t let that take away from your speed of play. You know go out there and play fast and react. Don’t overthink that stuff.”

Q: Do you feel after this injury with Ware that there should be fewer preseason games?

SMITH: “That’s for a different person at a different time. Right now, we have four. It has always been that way. We are playing with them. I feel like coach has done a great job of handling the reps. We have gotten good work in, but I do not think we have been out there too much or anything. I think it is one of those things, it is a physical game, a freaky thing happened out there. I do not think you are going to be able to eliminate that. I don’t think necessarily playing less games would (help). You are still going to have injuries. It is a part of the game. No one like to see it.”

Q: Were there lessons from last game that you can bring to the opening game?

SMITH: “Yeah, no question. A couple of things, certainly fundamentals jump out at you. Communication, especially nonverbal. We had some blown things here and there protection-wise that should have been better. Throwing and catching should have been better on both ends. There were certainly plays to be made and we missed. We left a lot out there and you can’t take that stuff for granted. You have to be able to go out there and execute on a fundamental level. I thought the crowd noise was good work for us. There were some things that we definitely need to get cleaned up, but playing in a loud environment like that I think brings out those things.”

Q: Coach talked last week about Kareem getting confidence in the offense and the offense is gaining confidence in Kareem. Do you think you are getting there?

SMITH: “I think everybody is confident with him back there. I have said it is hard with running backs because sometimes you do not always get a feel for those guys until you go live. When you are going ‘thud’ in camp it is hard to get a feel for those guys’ playmaking ability. Women’s Toronto Blue Jays Josh Donaldson Scarlet Fashion Canada Day Red FlexBase Authentic Jersey  Just so much of it is breaking tackles and running tough and then getting in space and until you actually are tackling to the ground you don’t get to see that. I certainly think Kareem has shown that. I know the guys feel really good about him in there and I know I do. I am not worried about that at all.”

Q: Is this week for you more preparing for the Patriots or do you spilt up your time?

SMITH: “Blend. Just be able to handle it, knowing I am not playing against the Titans. Yeah, attention focuses towards the opener. At the same time, I am still in that quarterback room, still a teammate so these guys are getting ready to play. (I’m) respectful of that and helpful in any way I can be. So just balancing those two.”

Q: How do you feel about the work you guys were able to get done all three games?

SMITH: “I definitely feel positive about it. Certainly there after that opening drive against Seattle, we left a lot out there. We’ve got to learn from that and get better. But we have had success. Saw a bunch of different types of defenses, different fronts. I think good work. I think our goal was to get up to speed and I think we’ve had enough work to get there.”

Q: You have been around Joel Stave for about a year, what do you think of him as a young QB prospect?

SMITH: “Joel is really talented, awesome kid. It’s a tough position to be in, you don’t get a ton of reps being that fourth guy. You’ve got to do a lot of mental reps, you’ve got to stay ready. You know your reps are few and far between. And with that, when you do get reps, it is hard not to make too much of them. You’ve been waiting on them and you finally get them, and sometimes you can make them bigger than what they are. I think human nature is to build those up. You’ve got to try to just go out there and relax and do what you have been coached to do. Keep it for what it is – just go out and execute the offense – don’t try to do too much, because you know you aren’t necessarily getting a ton of time. It is tough though, but Joel is awesome. Really, really talented. I am rooting for him and hoping for the best because it is a tough situation.”

Q: Can you talk about the wide receiver position going into the last preseason game and going into the regular season?

SMITH: “A bunch of depth there. We have a bunch of talented guys. This will be a chance, everybody kind of sharing reps, your opportunities don’t always come up here or there. This will be a more extended time for a lot of those guys to get to go out and show what they can do in a real scrimmage and preseason setting. I’m anxious for a lot of those guys that have been making plays in practice that haven’t had a chance to shine in this environment to go out there and do that.”

QB PATRICK MAHOMES

Q: How do you think you played the other night after you looked at the tape, how do you assess it?

MAHOMES: “Definitely could have played better. Try to score touchdowns, that’s what you always want to do. I thought I played all right. Did some things well. Did some things I have to learn from.”

Q: What early impression do you have of Kareem Hunt as a teammate, as a fellow rookie? How’s that process been going?

MAHOMES: “The first time I met Kareem (Hunt) I knew that this was a guy who was going to be special. Someone that works hard, that really cares about his position in every aspect – running the ball, catching the ball and pass blocking. That’s what you need to do as a running back in this offense is to do all those things and he does all of them excep Men’s Toronto Blue Jays Kevin Pillar Majestic Scarlet Fashion Canada Day Red Flex Base Authentic Jersey tionally well.”

Q: You said the first time you met him that you that he was special – what was it about him?

MAHOMES: “Definitely his demeanor, you can just tell how much he loves football. How much he really cares about this and how he comes in and works hard every single day.”

Q: What’s going to have to be the mentality your first start, even if it’s the preseason?

MAHOMES: “You prepare hard every single week like you’re going to go in and be the starter. This week is going to be special to get that first start under my belt. It’s a preseason game but we’ll all be treating it like it’s a real one. It’ll still be an opportunity for a lot of guys to get some reps and they’re going to be going out there and going hard every single play.”

Q: What’s your biggest takeaway from Friday’s game against a pretty good defense?

MAHOMES: “You just have to have a plan, every single play. You can’t go into any play and not have a plan on where you want to go if they’re in certain coverages. When they have defenses that are aggressive, big physical defenses like they have, you have to make sure you try to be smart and make the right play every single time.”

Q: Obviously your preseason isn’t over but through your first three games, how do you feel like you’ve progressed?

MAHOMES: “I feel like I’ve gotten better every single time I’ve been out there and that’s just learning the playbook more and more, trying to get the protections right and do everything right. That’s just something that will keep being a process. You have to come in every single day and work hard, get in that meeting room and get in that film room and do whatever you can to be able to do the mental side of it as well as the physical.”

Q: Thursday’s game may be the last time you get to play for a while. Do you feel like you’ve gotten enough at that point that it can last you if you need to get in a game at some point?

MAHOMES: “Definitely, just going in and getting those mental reps at every single practice will help. Going on scout team and throwing against our defense, which is one of the best in the league, is going to help a ton. Just ke Toronto Blue Jays ep adding on every single day in whatever way that I can.”

Q: You talk about getting those mental reps – is it easy to improve that way without getting much work in a game-like setting?

MAHOMES: “Yeah for sure. Especially for me,  Kevin Pillar Jersey I feel like the mental side of the game is where I need to improve on and keep getting better and better every single day. So I’m really going to work on getting those mental reps, calling the play back there by myself like I was in the huddle. Seeing what Alex (Smith) does compared to what I was thinking and trying to make sure we’re on the same page.” 

RB CJ SPILLER

Q: What is your reaction to Spencer Ware’s injury and where does it leave this running back room?

SPILLER: “I think Coach touched on it. Obviously, you don’t ever want to see any man go down, but we will just let the rest of our guys know we need to pick up our play and be ready to role.”

Q: How would you assess your preseason?

SPILLER: “It has been OK. Some stuff I need to work on and some stuff I need to continue to get better at. I just need to make sure I am doing the little things that I need to be successful. It hasn’t been horrible, but it hasn’t be spectacular either. I have plays here and there, but I am just trying to clean up some small stuff that I can control to help, not only me, but make the whole offense better.”

Q: Do you think with the three running backs you have now, you have three different skill sets and each of you guys are unique in your own way?

SPILLER: “Yeah, I think that is across the whole board. I think every running back in the league is different from each other. E Joe Carter Jersey verybody isn’t going to be the exact same. Obviously, you have bigger guys and smaller guys. Eve Blue Jays Canada Day Jersey ryone does something special and the guys that we have in our room, everybody could go on a different team and be successful. That is how much belief and confidence I have in all the guys in that room because we all bring something totally different. It is exciting to come to work with these guys and to get better and learn from them.”

RB KAREEM HUNT

Q: What was your reaction to Spencer Ware’s injury and where does the running back room go from here?

HUNT: “Honestly, you know, we really need to step up for him. Spencer is a great guy and a great back and we just have to fill some great shoes.”

Q: What was Eric Bieniemy’s advice to you about blocking after last game?

HUNT: “Just keep your hands inside and hit them. Drive your feet, that’s it.”

Q: Are you ready to start?

HUNT: “Yeah, I am ready. You just have to be ready at any moment. All of the guys are going to get reps and carries. We got West and Spiller who have played a lot of football already. They have been helping me out and I am just ready to take on the challenge.”

Q: What was the advice Spencer Ware gave you?

HUNT: “Just to stay patient. Don’t make it bigger than what it is and stay under control.”

Andy Reid: “That’s a Position Where We Have a Little Kevin Piilar Blue Jays  Strength”

Coach Reid spoke with the media Sunday

Trainer Rick Burkholder

“I just wanted to talk about Spencer (Ware). In the game the other night he had a knee injury. He has a torn posterior cruciate ligament. With that ligame Custom Blue Jays Jersey nt, often times with rehab, you can play. His issue is that he also has some damage to what’s called the posterolateral corner of his knee, which is the outside back portion of his knee which is made up of ligaments and tendons, and he damaged those. At this point in time, our medical staff believes that he needs season-ending surgery to correct that problem. But like with all of these significant injuries we’ll exhaust all of our options and look at second opinions and then do what’s best for Spencer’s knee and his career. We’re in that space right now with evaluating what’s going on, but our medical staff believes that he needs surgery.”

Head Coach Andy Reid

REID OPENING STATEMENT: “I’ll fill you in on a couple of the other things. Jacoby Glenn won’t practice today – concussion, still recuperating. Bennie Logan, we’re going to back off of him. He’s doing okay, he just had that swelling on his knee and we just want to keep that down. He’s had some good work over the last couple of weeks. Steven Nelson has been battling through a little bit of a groin, so we’re just going to back off of him. He’s been a warrior with this thing and pushing through it, so just give that thing a chance to calm down. Ron Parker has a bit of a sprained ankle, it’s not too serious so that’s a positive, but again he won’t practice today. And then Rick (Burkholder) mentioned to you about Spencer (Ware) and that we’re going to exhaust all of the different things there in case the final result is the surgery part. With that everybody else will go ahead and go through practice. I’ll talk to you about the quarterbacks. You have those guys coming up. We’ll go ahead and let Patrick (Mahomes) start this week. Most likely the twos will be taking that group along with him and then Tyler (Bray) will also play. I can’t tell you exactly how long I’m going to go with those guys and Joel (Stave) will get into the game also at the quarterback spot. And everybody else kind of follows that as we go. If something changes with that I’ll let you know. You guys are going to talk to them (quarterbacks), so you might as well have a heads up.”

Q: In terms of the running back position, if you can’t get Ware back this year how does it affect you and how do you feel about the guys you have?

REID: “I think we’re going to be okay there. No Men’s Toronto Blue Jays Kevin Pillar Majestic Scarlet Fashion Canada Day Red Flex Base Authentic Jersey w listen, are you going to replace Spence? No he’s a good football player, but the young kid (Kareem Hunt), he’ll step in and he’ll do a nice job for us, and Charcandrick’s (West) got reps under his belt, C.J. (Spiller) has reps under his belt so we’re okay. I don’t want to take anything away from Spencer and how important he was to our team, but that’s a position where we have a little strength, so we should be okay.”

Q: Does this mean that Kareem Hunt is going to be the starter going forward?

REID: “Most likely, and again we’ll rotate all of them but he’ll probably be working with the ones.” 

Q: What had you seen from Spencer in preseason and training camp?

REID Men’s Customized Toronto Blue Jays Majestic Flexbase Authentic Alternate Royal Blue Jersey : “He did a nice job. He came back in great shape, was looking forward to having another real good season. Things happen, he knows that at that position, and whatever direction they go, whether he has to have surgery or they find another means he’ll be back and going strong after he rehabs and goes  Toronto Blue Jays through that. But he’d be the first one to tell you he’s wishing the other guys good luck and go do a nice job for him.”

Q: How’s Kareem progressed so far in your opinion, when it comes to pass protection and everything else that he’s going to need to do?

REID: “You know what, I would tell you that probably the last two weeks of camp I really thought he had picked it up. That last week, maybe week-and-a-half that we were up at St. Joe, I thought he was really getting a pretty good grasp of it. And then he’s had a couple of pick-ups in these games which is going to improve that. Listen, these are teams that are being fairly vanilla right now  Kevin Pillar Jersey so you’re going to see it firsthand once we start getting into the season with teams being a little bit more creative.”

Q: Short yardage and goal line, is that where you are going to feel that loss of Spencer Ware the most?

REID: “He sure was good at that. The othe Women’s Toronto Blue Jays Josh Donaldson Scarlet Fashion Canada Day Red FlexBase Authentic Jersey r guys will have to step into that role. We just don’t have as many snaps of those guys in that situation. I think they are capable of doing it. But, that was one of Spencer’s strengths, yeah.”

Q: Is it safe to say C.J. Spiller is on the team now that Spencer is out for the year?

REID: “What I think we have to do is see how it all works out. Right now, yeah, I would tell you today. We haven’t even gotten that far yet. I’m not exactly sure who is on and who is off or not. He has done a nice job, that part I can tell you.”

Q: How is Terrance Mitchell doing?

REID: “He is doing well on the rehab part. There is a chance he takes a few snaps at practice just to see where we are at. Probably won’t pl Blue Jays Canada Day Jersey ay in the game, but he will start easing back into practice.”

Q: Are you thinking sooner rather than later?

REID: “Yeah, I think he is heading in the right direction. We just are taking the steps on that, he had a pretty good tweak there.”

Q: How do you think your first stringers did on both sides of the ball?

REID: “I thought the first group came out and played physical football. I mentioned the drops to you before. I will tell you the same thing, you can’t have those. The positives were the run game, some of the fits we had with the front. We moved the ball well. Defensively, we were physical in the run game and we had an opportunity for an interception there that ended in points. But we were in position to do that. My money would be on 23 (Phillip Gaines) that that happens nine out of 10 times that he is going to make that play. Most of all, for him, i Joe Carter Jersey t is great to get him back in the swing of things and seeing him compete. Last week, he was that close and this week he gets his hands on the ball and so on. So you’ve seen him progressing, which is going to help our team.”

Q: How is Justin (Houston) feeling? I know he was sick.

REID: “We’ve had a little bit of this going around here. With TK (Tanoh Kpassagnon), he had the same thing. We’ve had a couple guys that are feeling a little bit queasy in the stomach, so hopefully we nail this. But those guys are doing better. We have a couple other guys trying to shake it off a little bit.”

Q: At the top of the depth chart, are you pretty much settled everywhere?

REID: “Is there room for guys to still make it? Yeah, there are. That first group we feel pretty good about. For the most part, yeah.”

Q: So Bryan Witzmann will be your left guard?

REID: “We will see how all that shakes out here. But right now, we have both he and Zach (Fulton) and we feel good with that. With both those guys, Josh Donaldson Jersey  they have given us good work. We are very comfortable with both those two there.”

Q: What about Ramik Wilson?

REID: “Yeah, I think Ramik had a really good camp. He is playing really good football right now.”

Q: I was going to ask you about Zach Fulton and how versatile he has been for you.

REID: “He has been great that way. Zach, he just comes to work, that whole lunch pail thing. He comes with that lunch pail. He goes to work, he plays anything. Everybody has confidence in him and he is a good football player.”

Q: Is Mahomes going to be your No. 2 quarterback going into the regular season?

REID: “Yeah, I would tell you that today, but we will see how everything goes. But, yeah, today I would tell you that. He has earned the right to do that.”
