|Andrew Miller wont help the Indians until after the All-Star break.
The excellent late-inning reliever http://www.cardinalscheapstore.com/byron-murphy-jersey-cheap , who pushed Cleveland through the postseason in 2016, has made progress with his right knee injury but will not be activated until later this month. Miller has been sidelined with inflammation in his knee since May 26, and his comeback recently stalled.
But he threw 31 pitches off a mound on Thursday, and the Indians were excited and encouraged by his progress. Pitching coach Carl Willis told manager Terry Francona that Miller looked better.
Went well, Francona said Friday before the Indians opened a three-game series with Oakland. By Carls account, you can really tell the difference that hes getting a little more sure of himself. The good news is that he really is making strides. My goodness, if we can get him back in time to get him on a roll, thats the biggest goal.
Francona said Miller will continue throwing bullpen sessions over the next week. With the All-Star break starting on July 16, Francona said its likely the Indians will continue to take it slow with the 32-year-old.
To try to do this right, I think we need to let him throw his bullpens, Francona said, adding its possible Miller will be sent on a minor-league rehab assignment before hes activated.
The left-hander has been dealing with knee issues since last year and has been limited to just 17 appearances this season. Miller was on the DL twice in 2017 with patella tendinitis.
Clevelands bullpen isnt the same without Miller, who dominated in the `16 postseason he struck out 30 in 19 1-3 innings and helped the Indians get to their first World Series since 1997.
Miller opened this season with 10 scoreless innings before hurting his left hamstring and going on the disabled list. He struggled when he returned and is 1-3 with a 4.40 ERA over 14 1-3 innings.
Millers health could impact what the Indians decide to do before the July 31 trading deadline.
The list of players sitting out this weekends conference championships is almost as impressive as the starting lineups: Julian Edelman. Carson Wentz. Dalvin Cook. Donta Hightower. Allen Robinson. Sam Bradford.
Following the NFLs season of carnage that claimed the likes of, among others, Aaron Rodgers Dre'Mont Jones Jersey , Richard Sherman, Kam Chancellor, J.J. Watt, DeShaun Watson, Odell Beckham Jr. and Joe Thomas, this years final four all overcame not only the odds Minneapolis Miracle , anyone? but devastating injuries to key starters.
We have a tough and resilient team, Philadelphia Eagles defensive end Chris Long said of the NFCs top seed , which is missing its second-year QB in Wentz, an MVP hopeful when he blew out a knee in December.
Even before Wentzs injury thrust backup Nick Foles into the starting job for the playoffs, the Eagles lost nine-time Pro Bowl left tackle Jason Peters, playmaking middle linebacker Jordan Hicks, versatile return specialist Darren Sproles, and special teams captain Chris Maragos.
Yet, here they are Rashan Gary Jersey , 60 minutes from Minneapolis and Super Bowl 52.
I think that starts at the top with Doug, because he sets the tone for being resilient and even keeled, Long said of his coach, Doug Pederson. At the end of the day, we have a tough group of guys.
So do the Minnesota Vikings, who are trying to reach their first Super Bowl in more than four decades and fulfill the mantra to Bring it Home and become the first NFL team to play the title game in its own stadium.
And theyre doing so behind Case Keenum, who crashed Tom Bradys playoff party along with fellow perennial backup Foles and Jacksonville Jaguars QB Blake Bortles.
Together, the four quarterbacks left standing have a combined five Super Bowl rings, two NFL MVP awards and four Super Bowl MVP trophies. Brady, of course, owns all of that hardware himself.
Such is the panorama of these playoffs following a season of pain in which so many superstars were rendered sideline spectators with broken bones, snapped ligaments, torn muscles.
Keenum replaced an injured Bradford, who had replaced an injured Teddy Bridgewater. Bradford, now back in uniform as Keenums backup http://www.thepackersfootballauthentic.com/darnell-savage-jr.-jersey-authentic , blew out a knee in the first month of the season, as did rookie running back in Cook, who needed reconstructive surgery to repair a torn ACL.
Behind resilient coach Mike Zimmer , who resisted the urge to quit just before he got the Vikings head coaching gig in 2014, Minnesota rolled right along. Keenum deftly took over for Bradford, and Jerick McKinnon and Latavius Murray became a productive backfield tandem.
Weve got a bunch of fighters on this team, Zimmer said. Theyve been a resilient bunch all year long. I expect it to continue to be that way.
The Patriots are also a bunch of fighters; they reached their seventh straight AFC title game despite losing Edelman, Bradys top target, to a torn ACL in the preseason, and Hightower to a torn chest muscle in November.
Play caller Josh McDaniels and Brady, who led New England to a fifth Super Bowl title last year despite the absence of Rob Gronkowski, adjusted accordingly to Edelmans absence with another terrific year.
Linebacker Kyle Van Noy stepped in for Hightower and ranked third on the team with 73 tackles and second with 5+ sacks despite missing three of the final five games with a calf injury.
Van Noys sack total was just a half-sack shy of Hightowers career high set in 2014.
The thing about K.V. is hes very versatile, said Patriots safety and defensive captain Devin McCourty. So weve used him a bunch of different ways.
Hes been a big asset to our team.
The Jaguars are the healthiest of the remaining playoff teams. They have only one opening-day starter on injured reserve: former Pro Bowl receiver Robinson, who tore his left ACL on Jacksonvilles opener.
Four months removed from reconstructive surgery, Robinson is now traveling with the team Elgton Jenkins Jersey , so hell be on the sideline Sunday at New England, serving as a mentor to a raw receiving corps.
Every person in this locker room put in a lot of work to get to this point, with me being one of them, said Robinson, who was poised for another big year after dominating the leagues best secondary in training camp.
His injury on Jacksonvilles third offensive snap created a huge void for the offense. Marqise Lee and Allen Hurns tried to pick up the slack, but they ended up on the sideline at one point with injuries, too, leaving rookies Keelan Cole and Dede Westbrook to assume bigger roles.
Cole, an undrafted rookie from tiny Kentucky Wesleyan, had 42 catches for 748 yards and three scores in the regular season. He added a clutch 45-yard catch that set up a late TD in Jacksonvilles 45-42 stunner at Pittsburgh last week.
I wish I could just wake up tomorrow and feel like I did Sept. 9, Robinson said, but I understand its going to be a process. I know Ill be back to that point and better.
Like so many other stars, Robinson will be in street clothes Sunday, cheering on his teammates in hopes of getting a sideline pass to the Super Bowl.
