Jim Kelly to receive Jimmy V Award at 2018 ESPYs

eagles_128Jim Kelly’s unwavering determination throughout his battle with cancer hasn’t gone unnoticed.

The legendary Bills quarterback will receive the Jimmy V Award at the 2018 ESPY Awards next month.

Rhys Hoskins returned from a nine-game absence caused by a fractured jaw and hit a three-run homer for the Phillies, who have lost four straight and 10 of 13.

Arrieta allowed five runs four earned four hits and two walks in his first start since making critical comments of the Phillies’ defensive shifting strategy following Sunday’s 6-1 loss at San Francisco.

The defense is dealing with the departure of core players like cornerback Richard Sherman and defensive ends Michael Bennett and Cliff Avril. Defensive tackle Sheldon Richardson left as a free agent, and strong safety Kam Chancellor faces an uncertain NFL future.

On top of all that, Brian Schottenheimer replaced Darrell Bevell as offensive coordinator, and Ken Norton Jr. replaced Kris Richard as defensive coordinator under head coach Pete Carroll.

Edelman, who has worked closely with Tom Brady’s trainer, Alex Guerrero, at the TB12 Sports Therapy Center, previously discussed how Guerrero has helped him.

The link between them led Guerrero to issue the following statement:

I’ve known Julian since his rookie year and he is a phenomenal athlete who takes his training seriously — it’s disappointing to hear today’s news. Elite athletes sometimes work with multiple coaches and health professionals as part of their off-season training. Here at our facility, we take a natural, holistic, appropriate and, above all, legal approach to training and recovery for all of our clients. And anyone who would suggest otherwise is irresponsible, and just plain wrong, he said.Steven Wright and his knuckleball could fill key role for Red Sox

Jim Kelly discharged from hospital after having jaw surgery to remove cancer last month

Pro Football Hall of Fame quarterback Jim Kelly was discharged from a New York City hospital on Saturday after having surgery last month to remove cancer in his upper jaw.

“Mr. Kelly was discharged from the hospital today after an extremely favorable recovery,” said Dr. Mark Urken, who treated Kelly. “The speed of that process, considering the extensive nature of his surgery, was a function of his toughness, the firmness of his resolve, his faith and the support of his family. All of those factors will continue to serve him well as he moves on to the next phase of his rehabilitation.”

Folk was his own worst enemy in 2017, misfiring on five field goal attempts and two extra point tries in a span of four games. His worst transgression was missing kicks from 56, 49 and 31 yards in the Bucs 19-14 home loss to the New England Patriots. By the following Monday, the team had four new kickers in for tryouts and put Folk on injured reserve.

That’s because Arians had to lay off the golf thanks to Larry Fitzgerald. The Cardinals receiver got a little too emotional after an Arizona win at Seattle in December 2016, and his celebratory, sideline bear hug on his coach resulted in a torn rotator cuff.

A get-well card wasn’t going to cut it, either.

“Hell no,” Arians said later. “It’s going to be a get-well convertible.”

Fitzgerald made good on that request this past December.

“Christmas Day, I pulled up in the driveway and there’s a brand new car there. A Mercedes 550 roadster,” Arians said, smiling brightly between bites at the Whirlwind Golf Club.

Was it worth having to undergo surgery? Again, if Dez can still do what he used to be able to do, it means that when he seems to be covered he’s actually still open, and that a properly-placed pass will be caught. Tony Romo knew that, and Romo would make those throws. seahawks_095
