CLEVELAND - LeBron James will not play in the Cavaliers exhibition game against Milwaukee. Filip Chytil Jersey .With Cleveland scheduled for three preseason games in four days, coach David Blatt wants to rest his superstar Tuesday night. James is not injured and Blatt says this is just part of our process and part of our management of how we want to approach preseason and best get him ready for the start of the season.James has been bothered by a stiff back early in training camp.Blatt says James will play Wednesday when the Cavs face Indiana in Cincinnati.Cavs guard Kyrie Irving is also out against the Bucks while he recovers from a sprained ankle. Forward Tristan Thompson is a game-time decision because of a sore shoulder that is not believed to be a serious injury. Kevin Shattenkirk Jersey . The game marks the rare occasion when two homegrown running backs, Jon Cornish of the Calgary Stampeders and Andrew Harris of the B.C. Lions, will start in the West Divisions battle for a Grey Cup berth. Joe Kocur Jersey . It took five games, but the Celtics finally helped Stevens earn his first NBA victory. "Im going to celebrate for a whole 12 minutes, and then Im going to start watching Orlando and trying to figure them out," the first-year Celtics coach said after Boston beat the Utah Jazz, one of the leagues other winless teams, 97-87 on Wednesday night. http://www.rangershockeyonlineshop.com/adam-cracknell-hockey-jersey/ . -- New York Yankees general manager Brian Cashman has no concerns about the health of shortstop Derek Jeter, who was limited to 17 games last season due to leg injuries.They are thinking playoffs in Kansas City, which makes some sense even after the Chiefs got off to a poor start this season.After all, KC qualified for the post-season last year.Theyre also thinking playoffs in Buffalo. Wait, Buffalo?Yep, at 5-3, like the Chiefs, the Bills are in the middle of the race, seeking to end a 14-season playoff drought.I mean, 5-3 is only the beginning, Bills defensive back Corey Graham says. Weve still got a long way to go. Its not really how you start, its how you finish the season.The Bills usually finish as an also-ran, which means their success so far in 2014 isnt likely to go to their heads.I can understand the question, coach Doug Marrone says. I dont think thats the case at all when you havent been to the playoffs in such a long time. I think the one message I tried to tell them ... it doesnt get easier, it gets harder.Starting with Sunday. Kansas City is rolling, winning five of six the only loss was a tight one at San Francisco and has a defence to be feared. Justin Houston leads the NFL in sacks with 12 and the Chiefs have yielded only 66 points in their five victories.One oddity: Kansas City has not had a wide receiver catch a touchdown pass from Alex Smith.We want to get everybody involved in scoring touchdowns, but to be honest, when youre out there playing, thats not something Im thinking about, Smith said. When a play gets called, theres reads and things that go into it, youre going out there trying to throw the ball where it goes. Were not trying to press and force it to this guy or that guy.The action began Thursday night with Cleveland manhandling Cincinnati 24-3. The visiting Browns (6-3) moved into a tie for the AFC North lead with Pittsburgh and improved their best start since 1994 during the previous edition of the franchise.The Browns won a division game on the road for the first time since 2008, ending a streak of 17 consecutive losses. Cincinnati dropped to 5-3-1.Monday nights game is Carolina at Philadelphia.Off this week are Houston (4-5), Minnesota (4-5), New England (7-2), Indianapolis (6-3), San Diego (5-4) and Washington (3-6).Miami (5-3) at Detroit (6-2)Two of the more surprisingly successful teams so far hey, the Lions lead the NFC North. Detroit has the top-ranked defence and Miami is third.Its a pretty even match in terms of the type of teams facing each other, Dolphins defensive co-ordinator Kevin Coyle said. Were both strong on defence, both have explosive-play ability on offence. I think its going to be a heck of a matchup.Dolphins DE Cameron Wake has 4 1/2 sacks in the past four games. The Lions have seven players with at least two sacks.San Francisco (4-4) at New Orleans (4-4)Two of the more disappointing teams so far, although the Saints are coming on with three straight victories. Even better for them, they play their next three at home, where they have won their past 20 with Sean Payton coaching; he was suspended for the 2012 season.San Francisco has dropped its past two games and needs to rediscover its offence. Maybe the Niners will turn to Frank Gore, who has rushed for more than 80 yards in four of his past five games against New Orleans, including the playoffs.Chicago (3-5) at Green Bay (5-3)Both teams come back from a bye, and Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers must be chomping at the bit. Rodgers is 11-3 against Green Bays oldest rival; this is their 190th meeting. The Bears have lost 10 of their past 12 against the Packers, including playoffs.Plus, when the Pack is back off a bye under Mike McCarthy, it is 7-1.The Bears have lost four of five and were routed at home by Green Bay in Week 4.Denver (6-2) at Oakland (0-8)Peyton Manning and his teammates are smarting from a shellacking last Sunday at the Patriots. No better way to get healthy than against the NFLs only winless team.But Manning isnt getting sloppy or complacent not that he ever would.I dont look at the record, I look at the film, Manning said. I look at how were playing. Your job each week is to study the opponent and also be sure youre studying yourselves and seeing what you need to be doing to improve.Oakland hhas lost 14 straight, its longest skid since dropping 19 in a row in 1961-62. Phil Esposito Jersey. .St. Louis (3-5) at Arizona (7-1)The Cardinals have the NFLs best record, and plenty of momentum after wins over Philadelphia and Dallas. They have not gone 8-1 since their 11-1 season in 1948, when they called Chicago home.Run defence has been a big part of Arizonas success: It has not allowed a 100-yard rusher in 18 consecutive games.St. Louis has done well in the NFLs toughest division, going 2-1, and comes off a nail-biting upset of San Francisco. The Rams had six sacks all season before getting eight against the 49ers.New York Giants (3-5) at Seattle (5-3)Seattle hasnt looked much like a Super Bowl champion recently, but it has won two in a row. And the Seahawks expect to get several key players back from injury: centre Max Unger, left tackle Russell Okung, safety Kam Chancellor and defensive tackle Jordan Hill.The Seahawks also got Marshawn Lynch back into the offensive flow last week against Oakland. He figures to see plenty of action this week.New York has dropped three straight, its run game stagnant and its pass defence vulnerable. The Giants saw two starters hurt last Monday night in a loss to Indianapolis: rookie guard Weston Richburg (ankle) and cornerback Prince Amukamara (biceps).Pittsburgh (6-3) at New York Jets (1-8)The other Meadowlands tenant is in even worse shape. The Jets have never lost nine in a row, but falling to Pittsburgh will achieve that dubious distinction. And the Steelers are 19-4 against the Jets.Pittsburgh has won three straight games, with Ben Roethlisberger setting an NFL mark with six TD passes in consecutive outings.Ive had a lot of matchups against Big Ben through my days, Jets coach Rex Ryan says. I lost two (AFC) championship games to him. I had some good games against him and all that. Ive never seen him this hot.Hes just on fire right now.And the Jets are cold as ice.Carolina (3-5-1) at Philadelphia (6-2), Monday nightMark Sanchez steps in as the starter with Nick Foles (collarbone) sidelined, and Sanchez looked pretty good in a win over Houston. Hell have the resurgent Jeremy Maclin to throw to; Maclin has 18 receptions for 345 yards and four TDs in his past two games.Philly also gets 2013 All-Pro guard Evan Mathis back from injury.The Panthers are spiraling, losing three straight with little offence to rely on.Dallas (6-3) vs. Jacksonville (1-8) at LondonThis years third and final match at Wembley Stadium, the second of the Jaguars four-game commitment to play a home game in London each year.Theres plenty of intrigue on the Dallas side. The Cowboys have lost their past two games and QB Tony Romos tender back makes him a question mark after he sat out last weekend. Would the team have taken him across the pond just to watch?If youre always waiting to feel great to play in every game you play in, youre only going to play a couple of games a year, he says. The best players are the guys who are able to play at the same level with stuff going on.Jacksonville, despite its record, can be troublesome, improving since an awful September.Tennessee (2-6) at Baltimore (5-4)Coming off a bye, Tennessee has lost five of its past six and is starting a rookie quarterback, Zach Mettenberger. The Titans rank 27th in offence and must find some production to challenge the Ravens, who are solid at home.Despite their record, the Ravens are in last place in the AFC North. Yet Baltimores plus-66 point differential (240-174) ranks third in the NFL behind New England and Indianapolis.Atlanta (2-6) at Tampa Bay (1-7)Last time they faced off, the Falcons won 56-14. Atlanta has not won since, dropping five straight. The most painful might have been their mismanaged defeat in London against Detroit before last weeks bye.Tampa is going back to veteran Josh McCown at quarterback. Bucs rookie WR Mike Evans comes off a seven-catch, 124-yard, two-TD performance against Cleveland. At 21 years, 73 days, hes youngest player in NFL history to have 100 yards receiving and two TDs in a game.___AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and www.twitter.com/AP_NFL Cheap NFL Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Wholesale NFL Jerseys Jerseys From China Wholesale NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
