New England Patriots Place CB Leigh Bodden on Injured Reserve

The New England Patriots have truly had a huge blow to their team.  Tuesday, the Patriots had to place Leigh Bodden, their starting right cornerback, on injured reserve, which will end his NFL season – before it even starts and after just signing a few months ago a four-year contract worth $22 million.

Last season, he tied for the team-leading interceptions at five and is now being placed on the IR due to a struggling knee from early preseason but the more imminent factor is a torn rotator cuff.  The entire move was sort of a surprise only due to the fact that he has been able to battle his knee injury throughout the preseason and was able to perform last week in the preseason game against the St. Louis Rams, which was his first preseason game.  Continue Reading…

Online Sportsbooks NFL Season Preview: AFC East

New York Jets (9-7)

No other team in the NFL made more of an improvement last season than Rex Ryan’s New York Jets.

Not only have the Gang Green become arguably the best defense in the NFL, but they also are looking like Super Bowl title contenders heading into this season.

The offense still needs work with second-year quarterback Mark Sanchez still a bit wet behind the ears, but with the addition of former NFL MVP running back LaDainian Tomlinson and former Super Bowl MVP wide receiver Santonio Holmes, the youngster will get some much needed help this season. Continue Reading…

Online Sportsbooks NFL Season Preview: AFC North

Baltimore Ravens (9-7)

With a dominant running game led by Pro Bowl running back Ray Rice and a solid passing game led by Joe Flacco, the Baltimore Ravens finally have the offense they have been waiting for, but this season they will be even better with the addition of one of the best wide receivers in the league in Anquan Boldin.

Along with dominant offense that has the ability to put 30+ points on the scoreboard on any given Sunday, the Ravens defense will be just as good with perennial Pro Bowlers Ray Lewis and Ed Reed leading the way once again. When it comes to NFL football betting, no one does it better than Bodog. One of the top online sportsbooks in the industry, Bodog has the Ravens at -140 to win the AFC North. Continue Reading…

Aqib Talib of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers Suspended by NFL for One Game

If it isn’t the substance abuse policy or the performance enhancing policy, it’s the personal conduct policy.  We see plenty of all of three of these policies being violating by NFL players and it probably isn’t ever going to let up.

Once again, the NFL’s personal conduct policy has been violated and it has caused a one game suspension for 24-year-old Aqib Talib, cornerback for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, which was officially announced by the NFL on Tuesday.  He was initially arrested last year due to a cab driver allegedly stating that the cornerback hit him (punched him).  He was first charged with resisting arrest as well as simple battery.  Talib, as a result, entered into a diversion program, which included classes for anger management. Continue Reading…

Minnesota Vikings’ Brett Favre Already Receiving Injections

As you probably know, Brett Favre re-joined the Minnesota Vikings just a couple weeks ago and at age 40, he was uncertain whether his weak and somewhat unstable left ankle would be able to stand up to this 2010 NFL season, which would be his 20th, for him to perform successfully throughout the entire football season.

Reports have now surfaced that the quarterback admitted to receiving injections in his left ankle.  He received an injection Saturday following the preseason game against the Seattle Seahawks.  It was just several months ago, in May, that Favre had a third surgery on his ankle in order to remove particles.  The shot is thus meant to help relieve pressure that he may be feeling in his ankle. Continue Reading…

Online Sportsbooks NFL Season Preview: AFC South

Indianapolis Colts (14-2)

Peyton Manning and company had a season to remember last year as they won 14 straight games in the regular season and made it all the way to the Super Bowl to face off against an equally dominant team in the New Orleans Saints.

Even though the Colts were favored to come out on top and win their second Super Bowl title in the Manning era, the Saints were able to get the best of them and go one to win their first Super Bowl in franchise history. Continue Reading…

Washington Nationals Ink RHP Livan Hernandez to One-Year Contract Extension

Not long after the Washington Nationals claimed a 4-2 win over the Cardinals on Sunday, the Washington Nationals announced that they signed RHP Livan Hernandez to a one-year contract extension that will be worth $1 million in addition to bonus incentives.

With Stephen Strasburg’s Major League debut not going exactly as expected from the beginning is now having to undergo surgery so the Nationals had to take a step forward and do something to help ensure a stable and strong team for next season.

The 35-year-old is currently 9-9 with an earned run average of 3.49 for his 27 starts this year.  He rejoined the Washington Nationals August 25 of 2009 in which he has started 35 games and is 11-13 with an earned run average of 3.90. Continue Reading…

Antonio Bryant Released by Cincinnati Bengals

Simply put, Antonio Bryant was a shortcoming for the Cincinnati Bengals.  They signed him in March as a free agent, despite his recent struggles with injuries and surgeries thinking that he had recovered enough to play well and be a huge contender for the team.  However, shortly after signing him in March to a four-year contract worth $28 million, they realized they had probably made a move in the wrong direction.

The 29-year-old wide receiver suffered a knee injury, which is the same ailment he had in 2009 and surgery was performed in order to try to repair cartilage damage, which is also what has kept him from performing in any of the 2010 NFL pre-season games with the Bengals – which ultimately led to his dismissal from the team.  Continue Reading…

Texas Rangers Place RHP Frank Francisco on DL

The Texas Rangers placed one of their relief pitchers on the 15-day disabled list on Saturday.  Due to a strained rib cage, specifically the RHP’s right latissimus dorsi muscle, Frank Francisco was placed on the DL after undergoing an MRI exam, which determined that there was indeed inflammation in the area.  For now, there is no specific timetable of when the RHP may return to the Rangers lineup.

The 30-year-old relief pitcher first aggarvated the area Friday in the Rangers 7-3 victory against the Oakland Athletics.  He was only able to pitch to two batters before needing to leave the mound due to the discomfort that he was feeling. Continue Reading…
