HOUSTON - The Houston Texans have placed top overall draft pick Jadeveon Clowney on the injured reserve two days after he had microfracture surgery on his right knee.The surgery was the second this season for the outside linebacker. He had arthroscopic surgery on the same knee after being injured in Week 1.He played three games since the first procedure but continued to struggle with pain and swelling in his knee before deciding to have the second surgery.The move ends a tough rookie year for the 21-year-old who had sports hernia surgery in the off-season and a concussion in training camp before injuring his knee in his first NFL game.Houston signed linebacker Jason Ankrah from the practice squad to take his spot on the roster.___AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and http://twitter.com/AP_NFL Andy Isabella Youth Jersey .

That time around, the cage is as much a part of baseballs daily routine as a beer and a hotdog is to a fan in the stands. Coaches, scouts, broadcasters and other media hover, tossing verbal barbs, telling stories and sharing laughs.

He could have transferred when academic sanctions barred the Huskies from the NCAA tournament his junior season.TORONTO - Twenty-four hours after being caught up in Wednesdays shooting at Parliament Hill, the Toronto Maple Leafs were back on the ice at their practice facility trying to get back to the business of playing hockey.However, following an hour-plus on-ice workout on Thursday, it was clear the attack that saw 24-year-old Cpl. Nathan Cirillo lose his life was still weighing heavy on the players minds.Its scary because the guy was what? 24-years-old? Thats how old I am, said centre Nazem Kadri. It definitely puts things into perspective and certainly way too young to go.The Leafs were in the midst of normal game day preparations at the Westin Hotel, which adjoins the Rideau Centre mall across the street from the National War Memorial, when news of the shooting broke.Basically the TV was out our window, that was basically what had developed, Kadri said. News cameras all outside and ambulances — basically what was on the TV was right outside our window. We kind of got a double dose of it.Head coach Randy Carlyle was at the Rideau Centre when he heard of the news.Those are tough and trying situations that every individual has his own way of dealing with, he said. How traumatic it was and how close it was — I guess it made us all aware were all vulnerable in these situations.Carlyle, who spent parts of six seasons in Pittsburgh as a player, added the Penguins decision to sing the Canadian anthem prior to their game Wednesday night shows the closeness of the hockey community.Thats the hockey world, its one big family and when things like that do take place it shows the unity that the league does possess, he said. Its a great tribute on behalf of the Pittsburgh hockey club and their fanss.ddddddddddddForward Joffrey Lupul had a view of the situation from his hotel room window.We were watching it unfold on TV and could see a little bit from our hotel room, Lupul said. As a Canadian its something that you dont expect to happen. It caught me off guard and the first little while was just kind of surreal and then we started seeing it unfold on TV.The scheduled game for Wednesday night between the Leafs and Ottawa Senators at the Canadian Tire Centre was eventually postponed. It has since been rescheduled for Nov. 9 — two days before Remembrance Day.We werent allowed to leave the hotel so it was pretty hard to imagine playing at that point, Lupul said. I think that was probably in Ottawa the last thing on peoples minds.Theres time throughout the year and well make up the game. Hopefully be able to do something special on that night to honour some of the heroes from (Wednesday).Lupul is part of an initiative with the Leafs called Lupes Troops, which provides tickets, jerseys and food at every home game to current members of the Canadian Forces.Wednesdays news hits closer to home for the Fort Saskatchewan, Alta., native.Just like anyone in this room, our hearts go out to the soldier that lost his life and I understand he has a young child and thats tough to hear about, Lupul said. Obviously the troops are at every game and hopefully well be able to do something a little special Saturday.I know that the people will give them a pretty good reaction Saturday.The Leafs resume their regular season schedule Saturday when the Boston Bruins visit. The team hasnt released plans as of yet, but says it will recognize Wednesdays tragedy prior to the opening faceoff. ' ' '
