Maurkice Pouncey rips Lions’ D-line for breaking unwritten rule


The Detroit Lions’ defensive line broke an unwritten NFL rule Sunday when it fired off the ball on a kneel-down play, said Steelers center Maurkice Pouncey, who was incensed by the play one day after Pittsburgh’s 20-15 victory at Ford Field.

Browns cornerback Briean Boddy-Calhoun left in the fourth quarter with a hamstring injury and did not return, and running back Duke Johnson exited late and was evaluated for a concussion, but was cleared.

Cleveland was missing three starters due to injury, including top overall draft pick Myles Garrett (concussion).

Robinson reports that the quarterback’s legal team will be seeking discovery to look for evidence of Kaepernick-related communications between team owners, as well as communications between owners and the president.

Specific targets for discovery mentioned by Robinson include Patriots owner Robert Kraft, Cowboys owner Jerry Jones, and NFL commissioner Roger Goodell, as well as officials with the Seahawks, Titans and Ravens.

“It will be a vast group, both broad and specific,” a source told Yahoo Sports.

Kaepernick’s legal team also will reportedly bring up Trump’s comments on the issue of national anthem protests. For example, in a March 20 speech in Louisville, Ky., Trump told Cheap Jerseys Shop a crowd, “It was reported that NFL owners don’t want to pick him up because they don’t want Cheap Jerseys Team to get a nasty tweet from Donald Trump. Do you believe that? I just saw that. I just saw that.”

NFL Week 4 in five tweets


Week 4 of the NFL season arrives with the Chiefs and Falcons as the lone unbeatens remaining.

But there are five, count ’em, winless teams after three weeks — the Bengals, Browns, Chargers, Giants and 49ers — so there’s that.

There are some interesting matchups, team and individuals, those Cheap Jerseys Shop looking to break in, break through or merely bounce back.

The Panthers’ controversial 24-20 victory in 2013 left the Patriots upset over a no-call on what appeared to be pass interference in the end zone with three seconds remaining. The way the Panthers offense has played so far, it’s unlikely Sunday’s game comes down to the final play.

Trevathan apologized after the game and said he would reach out to Adams.

“Hopefully they see it wasn’t intentional. I was just trying to make a play,” Trevathan told reporters. “My main concern is he’s OK. You never wish that on nobody.”

But that probably won’t help him avoid NFL discipline as the league already is investigating the devastating blow, according to NFL Network.

The networks did not show instances of NFL fans booing or screaming at Cheap Jerseys Team protesting players. When ESPN showed the live playing of the anthem before the Cowboys’ 28-17 win over the Cardinals on MNF last week, play-by-play announcer Sean McDonagh noted fans were booing, but ESPN didn’t show them. Said McDonagh: “God Bless America.”

But with the league seemingly trying to put protests during the national anthem in the rear-view mirror, ESPN will return to its normal coverage strategy this week.
