I don't put in all the work in the offseason to come back and be in this role. Looking at PFF rankings for running backs last season, McKinnon actually ranks as the eighth-highest graded back overall with a grade of 84.6. Which is a little interesting considering he never played his best as a starter in Minnesota. It looks as though the 49ers will give him that chance.
We need to rewind a few weeks to start to answer that question because, and let's be quite frank here, Woods wasn't even on the radar in terms of being a potential victor in the season's first major at the end of January, whereas McIlroy looked a sound bet for Augusta National.
Jazz 110, Pistons 79: Rudy Gobert had 22 points and 12 rebounds, and five other Utah players scored in double figures as the Jazz earned an easy victory over visiting Detroit. E'Twaun Moore and Emeka Okafor scored 14 points each, and Rajon Rondo had 12 points and 17 assists. James' triple-double against the Suns was the 69th of his career.
TV footage shows supporters storming the Stade Pierre-Mauroy pitch after another disappointing result which leaves the 2011 Ligue One champions in 19th place following a dire run of form. Stewards initially struggled to stop fans from entering the tunnel to the dressing rooms. "If we go down, we'll take you down", some of them sang, as Lopez shook his head disapprovingly from the stands.
World No. 1 Simona Halep and Venus Williams punched their tickets to the Indian Wells quarterfinals, while Caroline Wozniacki suffered another exit at the hands of Russia's rising star Daria Kasatkina. After blowing through the first two rounds of the BNP Paribas Open, defeating Zarina Diyas and Kiki Bertens, Serena's comeback was thwarted when she faced her sister for the 29th time.
A year ago we learned UConn and Geno Auriemma were, in fact, human in the NCAA Tournament. Any team in UConn's bracket knows that a matchup with the perennial powerhouse could be the end of their championship dreams. The four projected No. 1 seeds have six losses combined, with Notre Dame's three and Louisville's two joining Mississippi State's defeat to SC.
Mr. Trump spoke with Mr. Kudlow on Sunday and again on Monday, according to two of the people close to the president. Nearly as soon as Cohn announced his resignation on Tuesday, speculation over his replacement - and the direction of Trump's economic policy - kicked off.
Salah joined Liverpool from AS Roma last summer after his first spell in the Premier League with Chelsea was unfruitful. And after replacing the ineffective Muriel , he scored two goals with his first two touches at Old Trafford . But with Pogba and Juan Mata left on the bench until midway through the second half, United posed little threat to Sevilla and Ben Yedder's double proved enough to win the game, despite Romelu Lukaku's late strike.
Baltimore never really figured out how to properly use Woodhead, and part of that problem traces back to the hamstring injury that kept him sidelined for most of the first half of the season. He has now played eight or fewer games in three of the last four seasons. However, with the Ravens re-signing offensive lineman James Hurst , there was less of a need for Howard on the roster.
Hyde did well running Shanahan's outside zone, but he wasn't a seamless fit the team might be looking for going forward. He moved to Florida after his freshman year of high school before returning to the Midwest to play his college ball at Ohio State.
The 26-year-old Romanian showed no sign of the foot injury that forced her to withdraw from the Qatar Total Open in Doha last month and is well positioned to make a run at reclaiming the Indian Wells title she won in 2015. Kasatkina hit one ace, won 54 percent of her first serves and broke Wozniacki's serve six times in the one hour, 40 minute match. To reinforce their hopes, Venus has to beat Carla Suarez Navarro or wildcard Danielle Collins in the quarterfinals.
Asked if the Packers offered Nelson the opportunity to come back in 2018 at a reduced salary, Gutekunst said, "There were a lot of discussions that went on". First-year general manager Brian Gutekunst called Nelson "one of the great Packers who played here". Last year, Graham made the Pro Bowl after recording 57 catches, 520 yards and 10 touchdowns.
The 29-year-old found himself frozen out by United manager Jose Mourinho, but Wenger is more appreciative of his qualities and has installed him on the right of his three-man attacking midfield. "It is a massive opportunity for us so it's something we've got to be prepared to give everything for to try to achieve this", Ramsey said in Wednesday's press conference.
The Denver Broncos certainly hope that will be the case with Case Keenum. Keenum had what many would consider his breakout season in 2017 with the Minnesota Vikings , leading the team to the conference championship game after starting the season as a backup.
The Giants were 26th in rushing yards and tied for 28th in rushing touchdowns in 2017, so Stewart fills a need at running back to some extent. They are, however, welcoming in a former Charlotte-dweller, one that will reunite him with his former offensive coordinator, Mike Shula .
In the first hour: Zolak and Bertrand start Monday's show by discussing perhaps the most important target in free agency for the New England Patriots - left tackle Nate Solder . They believe he will come back to see if New England will match, or come close to, those offers. Thomas, in the final year of his contract, will make $10.3 million in base salary if he plays in 2018.
The former England worldwide, 36, made the announcement at United's press conference on Monday to preview the Champions League last 16, second leg against Sevilla . Carrick made just one Premier League appearance this season and saw Nemanja Matic partner Ander Herrera and lately Scott Mctominay as his replacements in the United midfield.
Federer returned to stadium court on Sunday afternoon and needed an hour to close out his second-round victory 6-3, 7-6 (8/6). What he saw was his 36-year-old father overcome a shaky first set in which there were four breaks of serve. 25 withdrew through illness. In the next round he faces Jeremy Chardy , who beat fellow Frenchman Adrian Mannarino 7-5, 4-6, 6-1. Rain - a rarity in the desert - delayed the start of the match, with Federer cautious but restless to get play underway in ...
Aurier was suspended against Juve, while Ben Davies was preferred over Rose at left-back. Harry Kane is sure to start up front, while Hugo Lloris will play in goal. Tottenham are unbeaten in their six Premier League games and have won their last three top-flight games to hoist themselves above Chelsea FC. As stated previously, Spurs are not wholly reliant on Kane to power them to glory, and that was proved no more so than on Sunday afternoon; as with the Englishman off the pitch, Son was ...
Daniel plays next Argentinean tennis player Leonardo Mayer. But world number one Federer, who won his own contest with Federico Delbonis , had expected that Djokovic would find it tough getting back into the swing of things on the ATP Tour.
What it means: The Browns did not believe they had a replacement on the roster if Thomas decides to retire, but Hubbard seems primarily to be a right tackle. Hubbard earned praised from Steelers coach Mike Tomlin for his play when Gilbert was out last season, and Pittsburgh liked the way he handled moving around and filling in.
According to the joint statement issued by France and India , the two countries have reaffirmed their commitment to lead the fight against climate change and the push for massive deployment of solar energy . Prime Minister Narendra Modi has set a target of raising India's solar power generation to 100 gigawatt (GW) by 2022, five times current levels. The new worldwide organization aims to accelerate the deployment of solar energy in 121 sun-rich countries situated between the Tropics ...
Denver is in the market for a quarterback after going through last season with Trevor Siemian , Brock Osweiler and Paxton Lynch . Keenum turned in the best season of his career in 2017 when he led the Minnesota Vikings to an 11-3 record, completed 67.6 percent of his passes and threw for 3,547 yards, 22 touchdowns and just 7 interceptions.
Roma knock Shakhtar Donetsk out of the Champions League on away goals thanks to Tuesday night's 1-0 win at the Stadio Olimpico. It took Dzeko just 22 seconds to work Andriy Pyatov for the first time, but Shakhtar would not bow easily to the hosts' early pressure and were soon knocking the ball around with confidence in the Roma half.
Wilson set career-highs in catches (42), yards (554) and touchdowns (3) previous year with the Kansas City Chiefs . The Dolphins traded Jarvis Landry , putting them in the market for a veteran receiver. Landry averaged 8.8 yards per reception, while Wilson averaged 13.2 yards per catch on his 42 grabs.
