Any suspensions levied by the league for the first weeks of the 2018 season are now in effect P.J. Williams Jersey , which means that Buccaneers quarterback Jameis Winston is not allowed to attend practices, meetings or games until after the Bucs face the Steelers on September 24.
Wide receiver Mike Evans said that he forgot Winston would not be at work on Monday, but got reminded of his absence when he pulled into the parking lot and saw Winston’s space was empty. Evans said it will be “tough” to be without Winston while head coach Dirk Koetter answered affirmatively when asked if it was weird to be without the quarterback.
“It was a little bit Kentrell Brice Jersey ,” Koetter said, via the Tampa Bay Times. “I think I noticed it most when I went in the quarterback room when we broke down for individual meetings. It’s been a long time since Jameis hasn’t been camp out in the front row next to his computer. It was a little bit strange but we knew this was coming. We planned for it and now we’ve just got to do it.”
Ryan Fitzpatrick will start against the Saints this weekend and is expected to start all three games as long as he’s healthy. General Manager Jason Licht declined to say last week that Winston would immediately resume the starting job once his suspension ends during a short week following the Monday night matchup with Pittsburgh. Tampa has a bye in Week Five after a Week Four game against the Bears.Alex Ovechkin knocked his own rebound out of midair and by Matt Murray with 1:07 remaining to lift the Washington Capitals to a 4-3 victory on Tuesday night in Game 3 of their increasingly testy Eastern Conference semifinal series with Pittsburgh.
Ovechkin gave the Capitals a 2-1 series lead when he collected a pass from Nicklas Backstrom and fired a shot that ripped by Murray before hitting the right post.
Ovechkin stayed with it and his baseball-like swat gave him eight goals in the playoffs and the Capitals their fourth consecutive road win in the postseason.
Ovechkin has also scored in four consecutive playoff games this postseason.
Matt Niskanen, John Carlson and Chandler Stephenson also scored for Washington. Braden Holtby finished with 19 saves. Backstrom had three assists.
Jake Guentzel had a goal and an assist for Pittsburgh. Sidney Crosby and Patric Hornqvist also scored Irving Fryar Jersey , but the Penguins lost consecutive playoff games for only the fourth time since the start of their runs to consecutive Stanley Cups began in 2016.
Matt Murray made 18 stops but couldn’t get his glove – a problem area all postseason – on Ovechkin’s initial shot, allowing the Russian star to have a shot at the rebound.
