PITTSFORD, N. Andrea Barzagli Jersey .Y. -- Bills quarterback Kevin Kolb is showing signs of being a fast healer. A day after limping through his first practice since twisting his left knee, Kolb came out scrambling and firing one completion after another Tuesday. It was an impressive enough outing for coach Doug Marrone to suggest the seventh-year quarterback is on track to play in Buffalos preseason game against Minnesota on Friday. "I was happy today," Marrone said. "He looked really good to the point where were going to get him ready to play." Kolb had missed eight days of training camp and the Bills preseason-opening 44-20 win at Indianapolis on Sunday after slipping on a wet rubber mat in practice Aug. 3. The veteran free-agent addition is competing with rookie first-round draft pick EJ Manuel for the starting job. The update wasnt as positive for receiver T.J. Graham, who was held out of practice a day after straining his groin. Marrone doesnt expect Graham to return until after the game Friday. The Bills are already down their two most experienced receivers. Starter Stevie Johnson is expected to miss at least another week after pulling his left hamstring on Aug. 2. Brad Smith is also sidelined with a hamstring injury. Also Tuesday, starting safety Aaron Williams limped off the field and did not return after experiencing what Marrone called cramps. Reserve offensive lineman Thomas Welch twisted his ankle near the end of practice while attempting to catch a pass in the end zone on a tackle-eligible play. Welch was shoved down by linebacker Nigel Bradham before he could make the catch. Kolb looked like a completely different player than a day earlier, when he hobbled around the backfield and struggled to complete a pass. Wearing only a sleeve on his left knee on Tuesday, Kolb showed great mobility to avoid being sacked by Alex Carrington. On the next snap, Kolb dropped back and completed a long pass over the middle to Marquise Goodwin. Later, he hit DaRick Rogers on another deep pass. "He had some great reads, some great throws, and loved having him out there," offensive co-ordinator Nathaniel Hackett said. "It was good to have him back." Before practice, the Bills released reserve punter Brian Stahovich, in a move that opened the door for incumbent Shawn Powell to retain his job. Powell enters his second season after replacing long-time veteran Brian Moorman a month into last season. The Bills had signed Stahovich following a minicamp tryout in April in order to compete with Powell. At Indianapolis on Sunday, Stahovich averaged 41.3 yards on three punts, landing two of them inside the 20. Stahovich played at San Diego State, and was initially signed with Indianapolis last year. He was cut before the start of the season. Federico Bernardeschi Jersey . -- Maxence Parrot of Bromont, Que. Dani Alves Jersey . Week 2s biggest games include Florida facing Miami and Notre Dame travelling to the Big House to conclude their rivalry against Michigan in primetime on TSN2 and TSN 1050. http://www.juventusfcstore.com/authentic-rodrigo-bentancur-juventus-jersey/ . -- The Denver Broncos retired John Elways No.TORONTO – While assessing Brett Lawries season up to this point, its important to consider that the 24-year-old is doing something for his team that few other players, if any, could. One day, hes providing the Blue Jays with Gold Glove-calibre defence at third base. The next, hes more than holding his own at second base. All the while, Lawries posting respectable offensive numbers overall and is providing an elite bat in clutch situations. It would be ignorant to look at Lawries slash line of .224/.275/.412 entering Sundays action and conclude hes having a down year. Consider that Lawrie already has eight home runs, going deep in 4.8 per cent of his at-bats. Thats a marked uptick from last year (2.7 per cent) and 2012 (2.2 per cent). Lawrie also has 26 RBI, which ranks him third on the club behind Edwin Encarnacion and Jose Bautista. His best work has been done with runners in scoring position (RISP). With runners on second, third or both, Lawrie is hitting .366/.400/.732 (1.132 OPS) with four home runs and 21 RBI. All of it, as a reminder, while playing a third base/second base hybrid. Not even Ben Zobrist of the Tampa Bay Rays does that anymore. When Zobrist hasnt been hurt this season, hes predominantly been a second baseman. “I dont see any player in the league doing it, unless youre a utility player, which hes not,” infield coach Luis Rivera told TSN.ca. “Its tough because hes very good at third base. Hes one of the best third baseman and then you have to move to second base. He was at second base before, hes learning the position again and there are a few things he needs to continue to work on and he can be better than what he is right now.” Lawrie goes about his business, taking ground balls during batting practice at the position hes scheduled to play that day. That, in and of itself, would be overwhelming for some players. Yet it isnt for a player, still young, who earned himself a reputation for being hot-headed and immature, two labels which should be dissipating by the day. “Its tough knowing one day youre here, the next day youre there,” said Rivera. “Mentally, you have to prepare. You have to be mentally strong.” The terms “Lawrie” and “mentally strong” didnt used to be used in the same sentence, thanks in large part to incidents like the infamous helmet-throwing incident in May, 2012 and his stare down of Rivera and Adam Lind when Lind didnt score on a Lawrie fly ball 52 Sundays ago. Luca Marrone Jersey. Considering what hes being asked to do and considering the success with which hes accomplishing the request, maybe its time to give Lawrie some credit. “Theres a lot going on, man,” said Lawrie. “Theres always a lot going on, especially now just from having to play all over the park and just Ive got a lot of stuff going on, but for the most part Im just trying not to think about it too much even though there is a lot going on.” Hes a third baseman, hell tell you that repeatedly and Lawries proud hes made himself an elite third bagger at the big league level, which is a testament to his athleticism. Hes all-in on the move because it makes the platoon splits work for manager John Gibbons. Lawrie is at third and Steve Tolleson at second when Toronto faces a left-handed pitcher; Lawries at second and Juan Francisco at third base when the Blue Jays take on a right-hander. “Its just something that I have to do for the team and its what makes the team a little bit better, so for myself, its just what I have to do in order to make this ball club better and to, obviously, win ballgames,” said Lawrie. “The most important thing is that he wanted to do it,” said Rivera. “So if hes willing to do it, hes going to be fine, but when you fight yourself not to go one place and then play another position, play third base, ‘I dont want to play second base, thats going to make it real hard on him, on the coaches and on the team. Right now, hes willing to do both, so thats the easy part.” After Sundays series-sweeping 3-1 win over Oakland, the Jays sixth in a row, 11th in 13 games and 16th out of 21, getting a buy-in from Lawrie is a much easier task. “Its just fun,” said Lawrie. “Its just good to be competing. Thats the biggest thing is just being able to go out everyday and compete and, obviously, have a chance to win a ballgame every single day. Thats the biggest thing, but just competing on an everyday basis as a group is obviously a lot of fun.” Cheap NFL Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Wholesale NFL Jerseys Jerseys From China Wholesale NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
