Defensive end. Demarcus Ware, who is the Cowboys’ all-time sack leader with 117, recently retired after playing his final three seasons in Denver. Dallas still hasn’t come close to replacing Ware’s productivity. No Cowboys player has registered more than eight sacks in any of the past three years since Ware’s release.
General manager. I know, this isn’t a player position. But Scot McCloughan’s dismissal has created a hole in talent evaluation at the most inopportune time of year (i.e. free agency and the draft). The firing and behind-the-scenes drama surrounding it — not to mention uncertainty surrounding Cheap Authentic Soccer Jerseys quarterback Kirk Cousins’ future with the franchise — have also put the franchise back in a negative light.
The Mets were forced to scratch ace Noah Syndergaard ahead of Thursday afternoon’s scheduled start against the Braves.
Manager Terry Collins told reporters Syndergaard is dealing with a “tired arm.” The injury is officially being called biceps tendinitis.
Matt Harvey will start in Syndergaard’s place Thursday against Atlanta.
Syndergaard, who is off to a fantastic start with a 1.73 ERA and 0.88 WHIP in his first four outings, dealt with blister issues during his first couple of starts this season.
While Syndergaard’s arm fatigue doesn’t appear to be anything serious right now, it will be something worth keeping an eye on as the season progresses. It is usually not a good sign when a 24-year-old is dealing with a tired arm during the first month of the season.
