The Bears re-signed tight end Zach Miller on Monday and the contract was structured so that Miller would get some money even if he wasn’t able to return to action after last season’s severe knee injury.
On Tuesday, the Bears confirmed that Miller won’t be returning to action this season. They placed Miller on the reserve/physically unable to perform list, which shuts him down for the season while he continues to work his way back from an injury that required nine operations.
You couldn’t see who was inside the SUVs and [fans] were tapping on the window and trying to scalp the tickets, Carper said.
A week later, at the Reebok Pro Summer League, the Cavs wised up and chartered a bus to take them to the tiny 3,000-seat Clark Athletic Center on UMass-Boston’s campus. Summer league organizers arranged for makeshift parking in what Carper remembers as a mixed dirt and gravel lot, which was supposed to be secure from fans who had also parked there.
A fullback from San Diego State, Bawden was believed to have a very good shot of earning playing time as a rookie because the Lions liked his abilities as a lead blocker and a special teams player. He suffered the injury during a special teams drill.
Bawden was initially a quarterback at San Diego State and started two games there as a freshman, but he struggled as a passer and moved to fullback, where he bulked up and developed into a solid blocker and receiver out of the backfield. Now it appears that he’ll have to wait until 2019 to prove himself at the next level.
There was some thought that the Avalanche might expose starting goalie Semyon Varlamov, whose numbers were in decline, who was coming off two surgeries and whom McPhee drafted while with the Capitals. Instead, it was Pickard exposed by the Avs. He was quickly flipped to the Maple Leafs for 22-year-old AHL forward Tobias Lindberg, who didn’t play a game in the NHL this season.
This is ground zero in the great Why didn’t they see this one coming? debate. We now know Wild Bill Karlsson as a 43-goal scorer, a top-line center and a Selke Trophy-level defender. At the time, the Jackets felt he was a young player who’s getting better at a log-jammed position.
