Via Clarence E. Hill, Jr. of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, the NFL has instructed Cowboys owner Jerry Jones to quit talking about the anthem policy.
Last week, Jones said that his players will be on the sideline and standing for the anthem, ignoring both the fact that the NFL’s Anthem Policy 2.0 (which currently has been tabled) permits players to stay in the locker room and the fact that the NFL and NFL Players Association may negotiate an Anthem Policy 3.0 that preserves in some way the players’ right to protest during the anthem.
Jones had been scheduled to conduct a round of interviews on Sunday evening with Dallas-area media outlets, and those outlets were informed that there could be no questions about the anthem policy. FOX 4 canceled its interview given the limitation on the questioning.
Via Hill, Mike Doocy of FOX 4 explained that he made the decision to kill the interview after being told at the last minute he couldn’t ask any questions about the anthem policy. While it would have been better for Doocy to have been allowed to ask the questions with Jones simply declining to answer, it’s hard to pass on a chance to sit down with Jones, even with restrictions. Given the Dez Bryant situation and every other issue involving America’s team P.K Subban Jersey , why not do the interview and simply tell the audience that, shortly before the session started, the Cowboys slammed the door on any anthem questions?
The league has now slammed the door on any anthem comments from Jones. It remains to be seen whether he’ll be punished for the things he already has said. Given that this would simply give the primary resident of 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue another reason to attack the NFL, the league may choose not to pick Jerry’s deep pockets over this one — unless he defies the direct order to quit talking about the anthem policy.
FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP) — The New York Jets could be without a few starters in their season opener.
Wide receiver Jermaine Kearse, safety Marcus Maye and outside linebacker Josh Martin all sat out practice Thursday with injuries.
Kearse, Maye and Martin are all projected starters for the Jets, who open their season Monday night at Detroit. The team, which released its first injury report of the week on Thursday Bobby Orr Jersey , has two more days of full practices.
Kearse is dealing with an abdominal injury, which sidelined him for the last two preseason games. He led the Jets with 65 receptions last season and would provide a veteran presence on offense for rookie starting quarterback Sam Darnold.
The Jets have some depth at wide receiver if Kearse can’t play, with Quincy Enunwa (thumb) and Terrelle Pryor (ankle) both full participants at practice. Charone Peake and Andre Roberts are also on the roster.
Maye has a foot injury that coach Todd Bowles said is sore, but wouldn’t provide details. The second-year safety had offseason surgery on an ankle, but Bowles says this latest injury is unrelated.
“It’s been off and on,” Bowles said. “Just something he’s been monitoring.”
Maye had a solid first season with the Jets, playing opposite fellow rookie Jamal Adams. If he can’t play, Doug Middleton would likely take his spot in the starting lineup.
“We’ll see as it gets closer to Monday,” Bowles said.
Martin suffered a concussion in the Jets’ third preseason game against the Giants.
The linebacker is a key contributor on special teams Martin Jones Jersey , but is also being looked at to help boost the Jets’ pass rush this season. Martin, listed as a starter opposite Jordan Jenkins, had 1½ sacks last year.
Recently signed Jeremiah Attaochu is listed on the depth chart as Martin’s backup, but he was limited at practice with a calf injury.
Also limited was starting inside linebacker Avery Williamson, who’s dealing with a hamstring issue.
Everyone else was a full participant, including nose tackle Steve McLendon (knee), right guard Brian Winters (back) and left tackle Kevin Beachum (foot), all of whom missed time during camp and the preseason.
NOTES: Bowles confirmed that Jason Myers will be the Jets’ kicker against the Lions. That comes after New York had a few kickers in for tryouts this week, including Dan Bailey http://www.officialducks.com/authentic-adidas-antoine-vermette-jersey , Roberto Aguayo and Matt McCrane. “We liked him in the preseason, obviously,” Bowles said of Myers, who kicked a 58-yard field goal in the preseason finale at Philadelphia. “We brought a lot of guys in in a lot of different positions. This is the time of year you kick the tires around for everybody because injuries happen and we do our due diligence and make sure we bring guys in at every position.” … Bowles was asked how much pressure he personally feels as he enters his fourth season with the Jets: “Same pressure I felt when I came here. I don’t go into every season feeling any less or any more. It’s the same pressure. You get to the Super Bowl from here that’s all I’m here to do. I’m not here to collect a check. I’m not here to go 8-8. I’m here to try to get to the Super Bowl.”
