    FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. Cheap Jerseys . -- Atlanta Falcons coach Dan Quinn said Monday that starting tight end Jacob Tamme will miss Thursday nights game against Tampa Bay with a shoulder injury. Tamme was injured in the first quarter of Atlantas 33-32 win over Green Bay on Sunday, immediately after making a 13-yard catch near the sideline.With Tamme injured, the Falcons will turn to rookie third-round draft pick Austin Hooper as the primary tight end. Levine Toilolo would be the backup, with the possibility of rookie Joshua Perkins being active for the first time this season as the third tight end. Hooper had a career-high five catches (41 yards) in the win over the Packers.Tamme was the teams leading receiver early in the season. Through eight games, he is fourth on the team with 22 catches for 210 yards and three touchdowns.In other injury news, Quinn said top receiver Julio Jones had his knee checked out Monday but is fine and good to go against the Buccaneers. Jones was hobbled throughout Sundays game and finished with just three catches for 29 yards.Quinn said hell take it up game day with running back Tevin Coleman, who missed the last game with a hamstring strain, and pass-rusher Dwight Freeney, who played through a torn quad. Neither player practiced Monday in preparation for the short turnaround. Cheap Philadelphia Eagles Jerseys .

The team also has yet to decide on the future of Doug Berry, who began the season as a consultant to the head coach but took over the offensive co-ordinators duties in July. . 10 VCU 85-67 on Thursday night at the Puerto Rico Tip-Off. The Seminoles (4-0) have scored at least 80 points in each of their games. Steven Smith leans down the wicket to a Steve OKeefe ball drifting towards leg stump. Australias captain closes the face to whip through the leg side but does so too early, drawing an edge in the direction of slip. It is three days before the start of the first Test against Sri Lanka.As OKeefe celebrates his little victory in the Pallekele nets, Smith chides himself tersely. Thats shit batting, he blurts. Later, he runs past a Nathan Lyon delivery angled across him from round the wicket, and later still cops a blow to the inner thigh from a Mitchell Marsh effort ball that pops off the surface.These moments are apt showings of Australias vulnerability in subcontinental conditions; moments they must avoid to win this series, and next years in India. Smith has preached adaptability since he was formally appointed captain after the loss of the Ashes in England last year. Now he and his team face the first real test of their resolve to do so. Save for a series win over lowly Bangladesh in 2006, Australia have won one of 15 Asian Tests since 2004.Wed like to turn that around, Smith said in Pallekele. I think weve won one game out of our last 15 in the subcontinent. Its about making sure you have a plan from ball one as soon as you get out there and each individual is different. Ive seen a lot of the guys practicing the sweep shot, guys coming down the wicket, batting deep in the crease and things like that. Its about making sure youre doing it from ball one and not waiting until youre 15 or 20, because you can make a mistake before that.So its about doing it from ball one and making sure you have that plan and youre doing it the whole time. I think thats how you have to play in the subcontinent. You have to take different parts of the game, different tempos of the game along with you as well. Therell be times when they want to attack and you might get more scoring options and times when they want to be a bit more defensive. You have to be patient with that at the same time. The guys know what to expect, weve trained really hard being here the past two weeks and were ready to go.It cannot be said that the Australians are underprepared. They have been in Sri Lanka for two weeks, with some players adding further to their acclimatisation by spending time in Chennai beforehand. They have played two tour matches, an internal trial and a comprehensive win over a Sri Lankan invitational side. They have been actively assisted by the advice of Muttiah Muralitharan, to the evident chagrin of the hosts. They have a squad tailored to the conditions, with OKeefe offering a style of bowling not dissimilar to that of Rangana Herath. And they are playing the first Test of the series at Pallekele, which will offer a more equable surface than the spinning top expected in Galle. All bodes well.I think he has always improved, each year hes played he has improved, Smith said of OKeefe. Looking back to the UAE tour [against Pakistan in 2014], we bowled first on both of those occasions and were behind the game quite often. Its always a different game when you get in front of the game and theres a bit of pressure on the batterss to score runs and play with guys around the bat and those kinds of things. Cheap Atlanta Falcons Jerseys. I guess we never really got in that kind of position so we never saw that side of Stephen. But I think he has progressed really well. Hes probably bowling as well as Ive seen him bowl. In the tour match he bowled beautifully. He bowled the same ball and some skidded on and some spun. Quite similar to Rangana Herath, the way he bowls in these conditions. So if he gets an opportunity, Im sure hell do well. Another important role player will be Marsh, the allrounder who has made a promising start to his Test career without making the runs expected of a No. 6 batsman. Smith is hoping his top order can dig in for the long, substantial innings that can allow Marsh to give free rein to his expansive hitting power later on. Equally, he is looking forward to using Marshs lively fast medium for impactful spells of the kind seen in the recent triangular series final against the West Indies in Barbados last month.Hes a big strong lad and he plays best when hes looking to hit the ball, Smith said. He gets himself in a little bit of trouble, as weve seen in one-day cricket, when he sort of just noodles them around. When he looks to hit the ball and he gets the man at long-off back and hit down the ground for one and have that intent to score, hes been pretty successful. So theres no reason why he cant do the same in Test cricket.There is a second variable to Australias fortunes over the next three Test matches, that of Sri Lankas transitional team. While the conditions will pose challenges for Smiths men, he is also conscious of making sure the visitors assert themselves at the right times. As the worlds No. 1 Test team, they have the capacity to dominate at times, provided they are the right ones.They are in a bit of a transition, as are we in a way, Smith said. Weve had a lot of retirements recently as well. Theyve lost a lot of runs in Mahela and Kumar, they were incredibly experienced players. Angelo [Mathews] is probably the only one now who has played over 50 Tests in their top six. Theyve got a pretty inexperienced line-up and well try to get on top of that as much as we can.As for Smiths own batting, there is something to his style that appears suited to these conditions, as he showed with a series of useful scores on Australias ignoble 2013 tour of India. By match eve he had ironed out those earlier kinks and misjudgments, nailing his drives, cuts and defensive dead bats with far greater surety than a couple days before.I enjoy playing cricket in the subcontinent its always a great challenge, Smith said. The ball generally does something quite regularly in the game, whether its reverse swing or spin. Its a great challenge to try and bat for long periods and get big scores. I havent got a hundred [here] yet so it would be nice to tick that off - this week would be good. Its going to be a tough series but were all looking forward to it, and hopefully I can have some success along the way. Cheap Jerseys Online China NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Autographed Jerseys Discount NFL Jerseys Cheap Jerseys Online Discount Jerseys Wholesale NFL White Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China China Jerseys Cheap Cheap NFL Jerseys Throwback Youth NFL Jerseys China Disocunt Football Jerseys Cheap Nike NFL Jerseys Wholesale NFL T-shirtsChina Jerseys Wholesale ' ' '
