Shafer rules out Broyld, Estime, Foy, Morgan for N.C. State game; Wilson practicing

first_img Published on October 30, 2014 at 7:27 pm Contact Phil: pmdabbra@syr.edu | @PhilDAbb Facebook Twitter Google+ UPDATED: Thursday, Oct. 30, 9:39 p.m.Last week, Syracuse’s offense was suddenly infused with the re-additions of its top two talents at wide receiver. Now both are back on the shelf.Syracuse head coach Scott Shafer said during his weekly press conference Thursday that H-backs Ashton Broyld and Brisly Estime will both be unavailable for Saturday’s 3 p.m. game against North Carolina State. Cornerback Wayne Morgan and offensive tackle Ivan Foy are still out, Shafer added. They have missed time due to lower-body injuries.The head coach sighed heavily before answering the question about Foy and Morgan.“Yeah, they’re doing,” Shafer said before sighing again, “they’re doing a good job. They won’t be ready for this weekend.”AdvertisementThis is placeholder textSU released its full injury report a few hours after Shafer’s press conference. Also ruled out for Saturday’s game are: linebacker Luke Arciniega (lower body), wide receiver Adly Enoicy (upper body) and nose tackle Wayne Williams (lower body).Right guard Nick Robinson is listed as doubtful with lower-body injury and left guard Rob Trudo is questionable with a lower-body injury.Broyld and Estime returned from their lower-body injuries last week and played during the Orange’s 16-6 loss at Clemson on Saturday. Broyld bounced back from a four-game absence and was SU’s leading receiver with four catches for 49 yards. Estime, seeing the field after missing three games, didn’t have any catches in the loss to the Tigers.Shafer added that sophomore quarterback Austin Wilson, who had a turn at the starting job in between the injury to Terrel Hunt and AJ Long’s ascension to the starting role, has practiced this week. Wilson had a “pretty good headache” following a hit he took during SU’s loss to Florida State on Oct. 11 and has missed the last two games.“Austin’s doing good, he practiced. He was a little bit rusty, he’d probably be the first one to tell you that,” Shafer said. “But he practiced and got a little bit better Wednesday and he’s got a big, strong arm, so it’s good to have him back out there.” Commentslast_img read more

He left the arena on crutches. He had worked his way back into the lineup after going down in Game 5 of the Western Conference semifinals against the Rockets, forcing him to miss the Warriors’ previous nine playoff games. Coach Steve Kerr said Wednesday that Durant had been cleared by multiple parties, including an outside consultant. The main concern was just about the possibility of Durant re-injuring his calf so they were surprised by the Achilles injury. View this post on Instagram “That was the advice and information we had,” Kerr told reporters. “At that point once Kevin was cleared to play he was comfortable with that so the Achilles came as a complete shock. … Would we go back and do it over again? Damn right.”Kerr added: “If we knew this was in the realm of possibility, we would’ve never allowed Kevin to come back.” Kevin Durant injury update: pic.twitter.com/dAYNGie8Ji— Warriors PR (@WarriorsPR) June 12, 2019The Warriors rallied from a six-point deficit late in Game 5 to cut the Raptors’ NBA Finals lead to 3-2.

Luke: Trainers can stay away

first_imgIn what will be his first hit-out of the year, Luke has made it clear he wants big minutes on the park in Palmerston North and won’t be heading to the bench without a fight.”I’m going to tell the trainers to go away if they come to get me,” Luke declared this week.”But I want to be effective too, so obviously if I am not then ‘Mooks’ (coach Stephen Kearney) will send the message out and bring me off.”Despite entering his 11th season in the NRL Telstra Premiership, Luke, who turns 30 in May, said he had a genuine desire to be an 80-minute hooker this season.It comes after a 2016 campaign which saw the 208-game veteran battle through niggling calf and knee injuries, as well as a sluggish start to the season caused by off-season weight gain.”Most definitely [I want to play 80 minutes this year], but I have got great hookers behind me biting at my heels and that is what’s making this a competitive group,” he said.”I feel better [than last year], it was everything you know, it wasn’t just the calf, it was my weight, the knees trying to hold up the fat weight.”Everything has come good… [I’ve lost] about four kilos, that’s where I was before I came [to the Warriors], I am pretty happy and the staff are happy too.”Everything is going well so far, obviously I have to try and perform on the field, that’s where it counts.”Coach Stephen Kearney said he expected to leave his key players on the park for the majority of the match against the Gold Coast in preparation for the Round 1, and welcomed the return of both Luke and former captain Simon Mannering to the line-up this weekend.”We have Round 1 in our sights and focus, so for me it will be pretty much close to the game with interchanges and playing times,” Kearney said.”With Simon you just know that regardless of situation he will deliver.”Issac had a slight calf strain so he was rested last week. It will be good to get a few experienced guys out there.”There were some parts of the game last week (a 30-18 loss to the Storm) that looked like the way we have trained all pre-season, which was pleasing, but it’s about improving that again.”last_img read more

HEARTACHE AND ANGER AS BURGLARY VICTIM ‘GENTLE GEORGE’ TAKEN TO HOSPITAL

first_imgA MILD-mannered pensioner threatened and robbed at his Donegal home has been admitted to hospital suffering from the stress of the incident.Gentle George Moore, who is 87, was one of the victims of the spate of attacks in the east of the county.He had a knife waved at him and he was shaken at his home. Although his premises now has a state-of-the-art alarm and lights system, friends told Donegal Daily that George is now suffering from shock. George had appeared at a public meeting in Manorcunningham two weeks ago alongside other victims of the sickening burglary attacks.He is pictured here at that meeting.Last night as hundreds of people turned out again to vow to prevent more incidents, Mr Moore wasn’t there.“He is suffering from shock,” said one friend. “George is the salt of the earth. He wouldn’t harm a fly but he just hasn’t got over what happened. He was left traumatised and we think he is suffering delayed shock after the incident.“That’s what happens to good people when these evil people attack an innocent elderly person. It leaves them traumatised.“This is what happens. It’s just dreadful.”Another friend said: “You couldn’t meet a more innocent man. Everyone is praying for George and we hope he gets out of Letterkenny hospital soon.“The whole community is right behind him and his family.” People right across the communities of Donegal are being invited to join a community Text Alert scheme in a bid to crack down on the criminals.A meeting will take place at the resource centre in Manor next Monday at 9pm. A report on last night’s meeting is in our news section on Donegal Daily.HEARTACHE AND ANGER AS BURGLARY VICTIM ‘GENTLE GEORGE’ TAKEN TO HOSPITAL was last modified: February 27th, 2014 by John2Share this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:burglary victimeast DonegalGeorge Moorelast_img read more
