Visit: https://subscribe.premiersports.tv/ Joao Cancelo thanked Kyle Walker for “going above and beyond for the team” by taking the gloves in a 1-1 draw with Atalanta, but felt Manchester City were hard done by. With Ederson injured in the first half and Claudio Bravo sent off for taking down Josip Ilicic, Walker had to go in goal. “Going in goal is not my speciality! Kyle Walker showed a great attitude and he really went above and beyond for the team,” Cancelo told Sky Sport Italia. “It was a difficult moment, we needed someone to step up and Kyle did very well. After seeing the VAR, I think it’s impossible that the red card was given, because he didn’t touch Ilicic at all. This is not fair. “It was a deserved point, we are top of the group, have two games left and will try to do our best.” After his experiences in Serie A, how is Joao Cancelo finding his first season at Manchester City? “I am learning a lot with this coach, who I feel is the best in the world. I came here to work with Pep Guardiola and become the best.”last_img read more

Visit: https://subscribe.premiersports.tv/ Diego Simeone admits Atletico Madrid struggle to convert their scoring opportunities after a 1-0 Champions League defeat to Juventus. The match was decided by a remarkable Paulo Dybala goal from the tightest of angles, which secures top spot in the group for the Bianconeri. “We played against a great team, incidents can happen, but we still lack sharpness in our finishing and making those moves count,” said the Colchoneros coach in his press conference. “We create the chances, with opportunities both in the first and the second half. Vitolo and Alvaro Morata played well, Felipe had an extraordinary match. “It’s good that we are creating the chances, and sooner or later we will score goals if we keep doing that. It requires patience and hard work. We need more of an effort to convert those opportunities. “We are on track with the objectives of the club. That is why we need patience.” Simeone was asked what he thought of the Juventus performance this evening. “You should ask the Juventus coach that, not me…”last_img read more

Jarrett Jack got the ball after a Heat miss, fired it all the way down from the free throw line to the other end of the court, where Tim Hardaway Jr. leaped and threw it in in one motion from 21 feet to beat the buzzer.The lead ballooned to 84-54 in the third quarter.Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said Whiteside had been sore the last few weeks and had been using the day after games to rest. He said Whiteside would be evaluated Thursday when Miami is back home, though didn’t believe an MRI would be necessary since Whiteside already had one.“So this is just part of the process. We anticipated this,” Spoelstra said. “Hasn’t gotten any worse necessarily, just the schedule hasn’t let up and he really hasn’t been able to do two days of work in a row for a while.”Porzingis said he thought his injury looked worse than it was and hoped he could return Sunday.

Justise Winslow stepped on his foot, causing Porzingis’ ankle to turn awkwardly, and he was helped to the locker room during a timeout.The Knicks said X-rays were negative and that their leading scorer was available to return, but they later ruled out a return in the third quarter. There was no need by then the way they were playing.“He’s a big part of our family, but when he goes down everybody just stepped up,” Kanter said. “Not just me. Everybody stepped up.”Courtney Lee added 17 points for the Knicks.Kelly Olynyk had 18 for the Heat, who lost in Cleveland on Tuesday and finished their trip 2-2.

NFL changes concussion protocol after Savage incident

first_img“The biggest lever that could be used is to say: ‘We as American parents do not believe the safeguards are in place to protect our kids and therefore they’re not playing,’” he said. “Those are the forces in my mind that will really push this forward.”Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next Tom Savage #3 of the Houston Texans heads to the locker room in the second quarter against the San Francisco 49ers at NRG Stadium on December 10, 2017 in Houston, Texas. Tim Warner/Getty Images/AFPHOUSTON — The NFL and the players’ union announced a series of changes Friday to the way potential concussions are handled during games following an ugly incident in which Texans quarterback Tom Savage was allowed to return to the field after a hit left him on the ground, arms shaking.Among the changes is the addition of an expert watching games from a central location with the authority to alert sideline medical teams to look into an incident. And if a player shows signs of a seizure or similar responses, as Savage did, they will be removed from the game and cannot return.ADVERTISEMENT SEA Games: PH still winless in netball after loss to Thais — Using a centralized, unaffiliated neurotrauma consultant at the league office to monitor feeds of all games and contact the team medical staff on the sidelines if they see anything that deserves further evaluation.— If players show signs of a seizure or fencing responses, like Savage did, they will be removed from the game and cannot return.— Players who stumble or fall when trying to stand will require a concussion evaluation in the locker room.— Officials, teammates and coaches have been told to take injured players straight to the medical staff for evaluation if a concussion evaluation is warranted.— All players who are evaluated for concussions on game day must have a follow-up evaluation the next day by a member of the medical staff.— A third, unaffiliated neurotrauma consultant will be added to all playoff games including the Super Bowl to step in if one of the other two are away from the sideline tending to an injured player.Dr. Hunt Batjer is a neurosurgeon and a former co-chairman of the NFL committee on head, neck and spine injuries who currently serves as the chair of the Department of Neurological Surgery at Texas Southwestern Medical Center in Dallas. He said that the addition of the consultant watching all games and the move to immediately take any players who show signs of seizures or fencing responses out of the game were positive steps.He said he still believes more should be done to protect players.“When a player has a suspicious either helmet-to-helmet or helmet-to-playing-surface hit and he’s down on the field and play is stopped because of that play then that person should be escorted to the locker room for a full exam,” Batjer said. “So that should be added to this.”Batjer believes that the game will eventually be made safer when parents decide that it’s too dangerous for their children to play. View comments LATEST STORIES The NFL has been under increased scrutiny the past several years over player safety when it comes to head injuries. A $1 billion settlement of concussion-related claims from more than 20,000 former players took effect earlier this year, resolving thousands of lawsuits that accused the NFL of hiding what it knew about the risks of repeated concussions.The jarring injury to Savage prompted a joint review of concussion protocol by the NFL and the NFL Players Association. He was hurt in the second quarter of Houston’s 26-16 loss to San Francisco on Dec. 10 when he was driven to the ground on a hit by Elvis Dumervil. Replays showed Savage looking dazed after his head hit the ground with both of his arms shaking and lifted upward. He was taken to the medical tent where he stayed for less than three minutes before returning to the bench and going back in for the next series.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSSEA Games: Biñan football stadium stands out in preparedness, completionSPORTSBoxers Pacquiao, Petecio torchbearers for SEA Games openingSPORTSPrivate companies step in to help SEA Games hostingSavage threw two incompletions on that drive, and Houston’s team doctor approached him after he returned to the sideline at the end of that possession. He was evaluated again and taken to the locker room after it was determined that he did have a concussion.The NFL said the Texans would not be fined for the incident. The review determined that the medical staff followed protocol but his return to the game was “unacceptable.” Medical staff didn’t see slow-motion video where Savage’s “fencing posture,” indicative of a concussion, until after they did their initial evaluation, the review found. Texans medical staff later identified symptoms that weren’t present during the first evaluation.

That’s what we try to do.”O’Brien said he was glad to see that improvements to the protocol were made in the wake of Savage’s injury.“I think there’s a lot of things that can be improved,” he said. “I think anything where you can help — obviously the safety of the player in this game is the most important thing (and) I think anything like that helps when you try to improve that process.”The Seattle Seahawks were fined $100,000 earlier this month for not properly following protocol with quarterback Russell Wilson during a game in November. Seattle was the first team to be fined for a violation of the protocol. In addition to the fine, Seattle’s medical staff and coaches were required to attend training on the protocol.Among the changes detailed by the NFL and NFLPA (all of them already implemented):ADVERTISEMENT MOST READ PH military to look into China’s possible security threat to power grid Don’t miss out on the latest news and information.
