    Four days have passed since Real Madrid’s bumpy trip to PamplonaThe least of that game seems to have been the zero draw against Osasuna, or the poor performance of the ‘Merengues’. The president of La Liga, Javier Tebas defended himself of the claims against him for not suspending the match of day 18 due to a winter storm, “What has bothered me the most is the version that has been given of Real Madrid’s trip ”he declared. Tebas insisted that “if AENA says that there is no possibility of taking off Real Madrid would not have taken off “ and that “The final decision to travel is made by Real Madrid”. “I don’t know the information that Zidane had.

    Getty Jon Feliciano #76 and Jake Kumerow #87 of the Buffalo Bills celebrate a touchdown during the second quarter against the Denver Broncos at Empower Field At Mile High on December 19, 2020 in Denver, Colorado. A former Green Bay Packers wide receiver is now looking to join his fourth NFL roster since the beginning of last summer’s training camp. The New Orleans Saints waived sixth-year wide receiver Jake Kumerow on Saturday prior to their wild-card playoff game against the Chicago Bears, sending him to the waiver wire for the second time in less than a month after taking no snaps for the Saints. Kumerow, who the Packers waived during September’s 53-man roster cuts, spent most of the season with the Buffalo Bills as a member of their practice squad. While he earned a promotion to the active roster in November, he caught just a single pass —...
    Getty Pittsburgh Steelers helmet. On Monday afternoon the Pittsburgh Steelers (11-2) made a series of roster moves in advance of tonight’s game against the Cincinnati Bengals (2-10-1).OG Danny IsidoraFor one, the Steelers activated offensive guard Danny Isidora, 26, to the 53-man roster. Isidora was signed off the practice squad of the Kansas City Chiefs just six days ago in an attempt to add to the team’s depth at the position, which is being tested thanks to a pectoral injury to Matt Feiler (who is on injured reserve) and a shoulder injury suffered by rookie guard Kevin Dotson, the latter of whom is among the team’s inactive players on Monday night. Isidora (6-foot-3, 306 pounds) was a fifth-round draft pick of the Minnesota Vikings in 2017 (No. 180 overall). He spent two seasons in Minnesota (appearing in 21 games) before being traded to the Miami Dolphins in August 2019...
    Getty John Wall #2 of the Washington Wizards talks with James Harden #13 of the Houston Rockets. The Golden State Warriors had the second overall selection in the 2020 NBA Draft several weeks ago. Using it, the team decided to draft former Memphis Tigers center, James Wiseman. Wiseman only appeared in a few NCAA games, three to be exact, due to an NCAA violation. However, those three games proved enough to NBA teams that he remained at the top of draft boards as he averaged 19.7 points, 10.7 rebounds, and 3 blocks per game. Adding a player of Wiseman’s caliber to the Warriors will only help as the team solidifies their interior defense and begins to build for their future post their current big three of two-time MVP Steph Curry, former Defensive Player of the Year Draymond Green, and All-Star Klay Thompson. Yet in order for Wiseman to...
    BOSTON (CBS) — Cam Newton’s been around for a little while. And as a 10-year NFL veteran, he’s capable of applying some veteran savvy in the middle of a high-speed NFL game. Case in point: While running for the first down marker on a third-and-13 in the final minute of Sunday’s game against the Cardinals, Newton was not just thinking about getting to the line to gain. He was also thinking about acting. Newton admitted during a radio interview that he decided during that run that he was going to flop if the charging defender laid a finger on him. “If I would have got blew on, touched, brushed, passed by in a forceful way, I was going to flop anyway,” Newton said on WEEI. “You know what I’m saying? The fact that he hit me as hard as he did, that was kind of surprising. But it is what...
    Getty Eddie Jackson was placed on the Bears' COVID-19-reserve list today. The Chicago Bears just received a significant blow as they begin preparations for their hugely important Week 12 against the NFC North-leading Green Bay Packers. The team announced Monday via Twitter it has placed All-Pro safety Eddie Jackson on its COVID-19-reserve list. We have placed Eddie Jackson on our reserve/COVID-19 list.@Hyundai | #DaBears — Chicago Bears (@ChicagoBears) November 23, 2020 Per Patrick Finley of the Chicago Sun-Times, “Jackson did not test positive … Rather, he was in close contact with someone outside of Halas Hall who did.” Thus, Jackson still has a chance to play against the Packers Sunday in a game the Bears need to win if they want to keep their diminishing playoff hopes alive. “Players deemed close contacts must sit out for five days, dating to the last time they interacted with someone...
    Denver Broncos rookie wide receiver KJ Hamler was warming up on the field prior to their game against the AFC West-leading Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday afternoon. The Broncos, who are hosting the Chiefs in a key divisional matchup, will be playing in 17-degree weather, and it is expected to snow as well. The weather clearly didn’t affect Hamler, who was out on the field catching passes without a shirt on.

    BOSTON (CBS) — In the wake of Stephon Gilmore testing positive for COVID-19 two weeks ago, some varying reports came out about a potential meal shared with Cam Newton, just prior to the quarterback’s positive test. ESPN’s Adam Schefter said the two were “spotted” eating dinner together on the Friday night before the Chiefs game, while Gilmore’s wife later tweeted that “there was no dinner out” in an effort to prevent the spread of “false news.” While the issue may already be a matter of the past, Gilmore was asked directly on Wednesday whether or not the reported dinner happened. Unsurprisingly, Gilmore gave no real answer. “I don’t want to get into that. Just, you know, it’s done. It’s over with,” Gilmore said when asked about the reported dinner by 98.5 The Sports Hub’s Adam Jones. “We passed it, so I’m just looking forward to playing against San Francisco.” Gilmore...
    Getty Mike Nolan Mike Nolan is gone — from the coaching booth. According to FOX Sports’ Jay Glazer, the embattled Dallas Cowboys defensive coordinator will call Sunday’s showdown against the New York Giants from the sideline. “Cowboys def coordinator Mike Nolan will be moving from booth to sideline to coach this week to be more interactive with players on that side of the ball,” Glazer reported. ALL the latest Dallas Cowboys news straight to your inbox! Join the Heavy on Cowboys newsletter here! On the surface, this reads like a grasping-at-straws maneuver to remove his posterior from the hot seat. Whether he’s up high or field level, Nolan’s presence has little impact on the game plan nor his players’ performances. Putting himself at the forefront is largely a symbolic gesture that egregiously screams, “I’m trying to fix it!” Then again, there may be something to his physical location....
    Yankees’ receive amazing Aaron Judge news prior to Wednesday’s game By: Alexander Wilson September 16, 2020 ShareShareTweetWhile New York Yankees manager Aaron Boone projected that he would gain his star sluggers back over the weekend, they manage to return a few days early to the active roster. On Tuesday, the Yankees featured both Gio Urshela and Giancarlo Stanton, and on Wednesday, they reinstated Aaron Judge from the injured list. After a 20-6 whopping of the Toronto Blue Jays in the Bronx, the Yankees felt the need to bring in more offensive firepower. Judge, who has been nursing a calf strain the past few weeks, was dominating the MLB before his injury. Prior to going down, he was hitting .292 with a 1.081 on-base plus slugging and nine homers. While he has only played 18 games, less than half of the 2020...

    With the regular season opener days away, Travis Kelce was limited at Kansas City Chiefs practice on Monday. The Kansas City Chiefs are days away from kicking off their Super Bowl defense tour at Arrowhead Stadium against the Houston Texans. This offseason, the team signed three of their key players to long-term contract extensions, ensuring they had the opportunity to become the NFL‘s next dynasty.

    NEW YORK (CBSNewYork/AP) — Miguel Rojas hit a tiebreaking RBI single during Miami’s four-run sixth inning against Jacob deGrom, and the Marlins beat the New York Mets 5-3 on Monday. Garrett Cooper and Brian Anderson homered for Miami, which had dropped four in a row prior to traveling to New York for the makeup of a game postponed last Thursday, when the Mets and Marlins took the field for 42 seconds of silence before walking off in a protest of racial injustice. Miami was outscored 18-7 while being swept over the weekend by the Tampa Bay Rays. “We haven’t been great lately, especially at home,” manager Don Mattingly said. “But we’ve hung in there. This trip is like a last straw-type thing. That was a sore spot. It could lead to a lot of complaining. But it was one of those things we had to get past.” “To do it...
    The Mets and Marlins have made their voices heard. Both teams took the field prior to their matchup at Citi Field, engaged in a 42-second moment of silence, then subsequently left the field after the moment of silence. Mets players Dominic Smith and Billy Hamilton, who are Black, led the teams onto the field. Michael Wacha took the mound for New York, Lewis Brinson was announced for Miami, a moment of silence followed and a Black Lives Matter shirt was left on home plate, the only thing remaining on the field in Flushing.

Several NBA playoff games were postponed...
    BOSTON (CBS) — Wednesday was a momentous day for social justice pushes across the world of professional sports. The Milwaukee Bucks boycotted their playoff game, a move which eventually led to the NBA postponing all of the day’s games. The WNBA did the same, while at least two MLB games were not played. All of the day’s events came in an effort to respond in some way to the Jacob Blake incident in Kenosha, Wisconsin, where police shot Blake in the back seven times over the weekend. While all of that was taking place in the sports world, a mid-afternoon NHL game between the Flyers and Islanders was in progress. With the Bruins and Lightning set to drop the puck at 8 p.m. ET, it was unclear if any protests or boycotts would take place. The NHL’s decision ended up being an acknowledgement prior to the game. With the words...

    On Friday, it was assumed Tuukka Rask was preparing for the Boston Bruins‘ game against the Carolina Hurricanes. On Saturday, one of the best goalies in the sport announced he was leaving the NHL bubbing and opting out for the rest of the Stanley Cup playoffs, according to Emily Kaplan of ESPN. “I want to be with my teammates competing, but at this moment there are things more important than hockey in my life, and that’s being with my family,” Rask reportedly said. “I want to thank the Bruins and my teammates for their support and wish them success.” Rask broke the news to his teammates and the rest of the hockey world just a few hours before his squadmates were due to take the ice for game 3 against the Hurricanes. Boston will now turn to veteran Jaroslav Halak as the starter for the rest of the playoffs. On...

    At least one player from the Miami Marlins went out on the town when the team was in Atlanta, and that ill-advised venture is now believed to be responsible for the team’s coronavirus outbreak. During a recent radio appearance on 93.7 The Fan in Pittsburgh, USA Today baseball reporter Bob Nightengale said that “at least” one Marlins player went out prior to playing the Braves, and it is believed that sparked an outbreak that has infected at least 17 players and coaches. Nightengale said: I think it’s a wake-up call for all the other teams, saying, ‘You’d better not go out at night.’ Because if you bring it in, you’ve got a chance to knock off the season by yourself. […] Well, I think a couple guys went out in Atlanta. That’s what happened. I don’t think it was any kind of fluke, from the bus driver or a pilot,...
    It took until Independence Day weekend for the Oakland Coliseum gates to open up. But, this Fourth of July looked a little different at the Coliseum. There were no families packing the stands under the day game sun, no pomp or circumstance. Instead, the Coliseum seats hosted a select few to witness the start A’s summer camp. “I’ve only seen three catchers so far,” manager Bob Melvin said over Zoom prior to the first workouts of the day on Saturday afternoon. Pitchers and catchers, who arrive a day prior to the rest of the squad, are scheduled for staggered stretch times and workout times. At least the crack of the bat provided some normalcy. Melvin, closer Liam Hendriks and catcher Sean Murphy did provide some hints about where the team is at on Day 1. The rosters might be set “We have a pretty...
