Whats going on with the Canadiens Jeff Petrys scary-looking eyes – The Athletic

Whats going on with the Canadiens Jeff Petrys scary-looking eyes – The Athletic

More often than not, Dr. Patrick Tracey said the scenario unfolds like this: A patient wakes up and makes their way to the mirror, where they notice their eye has suddenly, and inexplicably, turned an unsettling shade of red. They call his office in a panic. “They come in,” he said, “and sure enough, it’s just a subconjunctival hemorrhage.” The term found its way into the spotlight — an unsettling red spotlight — on Wednesday night when Montreal Canadiens defenceman Jeff Petry returned to the ice for Game 2 of his team’s playoff series with the Vegas Golden Knights. The focus was supposed to be on his injured right hand, but it landed instead on his eyes.
White Sox Place Adam Eaton On 10-Day Injured List – MLB Trade Rumors

White Sox Place Adam Eaton On 10-Day Injured List – MLB Trade Rumors

The White Sox placed outfielder Adam Eaton the 10-day injured list today due to a strained right hamstring.  The placement is retroactive to June 15.  Right-hander Zack Burdi was promoted from Triple-A to take Eaton’s spot on the active roster. With Eaton sidelined, this means that Chicago’s entire projected Opening Day outfield is now on the injured list.  While Eaton’s hamstring problem doesn’t seem nearly as serious as the injuries that have sidelined Eloy Jimenez and Luis Robert for the bulk of the season, it does underline how the Sox have managed to adapt and thrive despite these significant setbacks.  In particular, hamstring and leg injuries have struck several White Sox players this season, with GM Rick Hahn recently discussing about how the team has been trying to figure ou...

US Olympic officials reverse course, boot banned runner Shelby Houlihan from track trials – USA TODAY

American runner Shelby Houlihan will not be eligible to run at the U.S. Olympic track and field trials after all. Hours after USA Track and Field indicated that Houlihan would be allowed to run at the Olympic trials, despite a recent decision to uphold her four-year ban for violating anti-doping rules, the U.S. Olympic and Paralympic Committee stepped in Thursday evening to clarify the matter. In a statement provided to USA TODAY Sports, USOPC chief executive officer Sarah Hirshland said the USOPC, "together with USATF," would adhere to the World Anti-Doping Agency Code and any rulings from the Court of Arbitration for Sport "that govern athlete participation in sanctioned events." Translation: Because Houlihan's four-year ban has been upheld by CAS, she will not be eligible to compete,...
NCAA investigation into Arizona State football recruiting may include paying for unofficial visits – The Athletic

NCAA investigation into Arizona State football recruiting may include paying for unofficial visits – The Athletic

TEMPE, Ariz. — Part of the NCAA investigation into Arizona State’s football program could dive into whether coaches paid for recruits’ expenses during unofficial visits. Sources told The Athletic that Arizona State covered some prospects’ transportation and lodging during these visits; one said the process was often carried out through a third party and that this was done mostly with elite prospects. Per NCAA rules, an unofficial visit to a Division I program has to be financed by the prospect or his parents or guardian. The Athletic first reported Wednesday that the NCAA is investigating whether the football program hosted recruits during the 15-month COVID-19 non-contact period. The probe could stretch into other areas that would reveal broader violations within the progra...
Sixers individual player grades after Game 5 home loss to Hawks – Sixers Wire

Sixers individual player grades after Game 5 home loss to Hawks – Sixers Wire

The Philadelphia 76ers held a 26-point lead in Game 5 at home against the Atlanta Hawks on Wednesday and it looked as if they were going to cruise to an easy win and move to within a win of the Eastern Conference Finals for the first time since 2001. Instead, they blew another lead in this series and they fell to the Hawks at home 109-106 and they are now facing elimination as they head down to State Farm Arena on Friday for Game 6. Joel Embiid led Philadelphia with 37 and 13 and Seth Curry had a playoff career-high 36 points, but the rest of the team could not get going. Embiid and Curry were the only players in the second half to make a field goal. With that said, here are the player grades in the final look back at Game 5: Bill Streicher-USA TODAY Spo...
Seahawks players continue to fuel the Shane Waldron hype – Field Gulls

Seahawks players continue to fuel the Shane Waldron hype – Field Gulls

All eyes are on first-year Seattle Seahawks offensive coordinator Shane Waldron, who has a huge task on his shoulders given Seattle’s collapse to end 2020 and subsequent departure of Brian Schottenheimer. Waldron comes from the Los Angeles Rams and Sean McVay’s system, which is something I think even non-Seahawks fans are intrigued by just based on the assumption that we will see Russell Wilson and company incorporate at least some of what the Rams have run for years. Early minicamp reviews of Waldron among the top Seahawks players have been overwhelmingly positive. You take that with a grain of salt because upbeat opinions are to be expected, but you try and find signs of substance to what is said and what’s been revealed. Tyler Lockett spoke about the new offensive system on Wedne...

WATCH: Yankees turn first 1-3-6-2-5-6 triple play in MLB history on Blue Jays bad baserunning – CBS Sports

Getty Images In the first inning of Thursday night's series finale against the Blue Jays, the New York Yankees made franchise history and MLB history when they turned their second triple play of the season. Here's a look: The trouble started when Marcus Semien appeared to get frozen between third and home after Michael King was able to pounce on Vladimir Guerrero Jr.'s weak grounder to the third base side of the mound. Before throwing to DJ LeMahieu at first, King also appeared to give Semien a quick look, which may have contributed to the hesitation. Meanwhil...
