Yankees’ Jordan Montgomery out 6-to-8 weeks

HOUSTON The medical update Wednesday on Yankees left-hander Jordan Montgomery wasn’t good.

He has a flexor strain and will be sidelined for six-to-eight weeks.

Rookie right-hander Domingo German, who worked four shutout innings of relief on Tuesday, will fill Montgomery’s spot in the rotation.

He’s pitching Sunday for us and then he’ll probably likely stay in the rotation, Boone said of German. We go through a period once we get through this stretch where we have three off days in 10 days, so that could factor into some things. But we feel good about him moving into the rotation.

The Yankees replaced Montgomery on their 25-man roster by purchasing the contract of Scranton/Wilkes-Barre right-hander David Hale, who just rejoined the organization on Tuesday after being a waiver claim by the Minnesota Twins last week. They opened a 40-man roster spot for Hale by transferring outfielder Jacoby Ellsbury from the 10-day DL to the 60-day DL.

Freeman then signed with the Saskatchewan Roughriders of the CFL where he spent three seasons (2009-11).

The Colts under then-general manager Ryan Grigson gave Freeman his shot at the NFL after signing the linebacker to a contract in January 2012.

Freeman became the first player from Mary Haydin-Baylor to play in an NFL game and burst on the scene during his first NFL regular season, totaling 145 tackles (90 solo), two sacks, an interception, two passes defensed and a forced fumble.

After fou seasons with the Colts (2012-15), Freeman joined Chicago on a three-year, $12 million deal.

Freeman enjoyed success in his first 12 games in a Bears uniform, starting 12 games and producing 110 tackles (86 solo). But the league suspended Freeman the remaining four games Cheap Hockey Jerseys Youth for violating the policy on performance-enhancing Cheap High Quality NFL Jerseys substances.

Sam Bradford shreds Saints defense to spoil Adrian Peterson’s return to Minnesota

If the Vikings are going to become the first NFL team to win a Super Bowl in their home stadium, they’ll need more dominating performances from Sam Bradford like on Monday night.

Bradford, who set a single-season completion record last season, was nearly flawless in a 29-19 win over the Saints in the first regular-season game at U.S. Bank Stadium, host of Super Bowl LII.

And so, FPI looked at the Chiefs’ performance and upgraded its rating of the Kansas City offense in a major way. Last year’s Super Bowl competitors, the Patriots and Falcons, still hold top billing for offensive FPI, at plus-5.3 and plus-5.2, respectively. But the Chiefs now are right behind them, at plus-4.5, a serious threat to any opposing defense.

Kansas City’s defense improved slightly from plus-1.2 to plus-1.7 — and its rank compared to other NFL defenses ticked upward from ninth to sixth — with the performance against New England. When you’re facing an offense quarterbacked by Tom Brady, just keeping them to 27 points is an accomplishment. FPI does not factor in safety Eric Berry’s season-ending Achilles injury, but then again, it also does not factor in other non-QB injuries across the league.

And, of course, don’t sleep on the Chiefs’ top-ranked special teams unit, which Cheap Jerseys China we wrote about in the preseason.

All that improvement means that after just one game, Chiefs Cheap High Quality NFL Jerseys fans can be just about certain to see their team play January football this year. Well, according to FPI, 90 percent certain.
