Jets’ Muhammad Wilkerson Day To Day With Tweaked Hamstring

CBS New York

FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (CBSNewYork/AP) — New York Jets defensive end Muhammad Wilkerson is day to day with a tweaked hamstring that kept him out of practice Tuesday.

The 25-year-old spent the early portion of practice on a stationary bike, and then remained in the trainers’ area the rest of the time. He was injured during practice Sunday, when he walked off the field and went to the locker room with a trainer.

The team was off from practice Monday. The injury isn’t believed to be serious.

Coach Todd Bowles says “hopefully” Wilkerson will be available to practice Wednesday, but added that the Jets are going to be cautious with the injury.

Running back Stevan Ridley remains on the active-physically unable to play list as he recovers from torn right knee ligaments last season.

Kraft, who originally accepted the penalties for Deflategate in hopes of exonerating Brady’s suspension, apologized to Patriots fans admitting he was wrong. Brady released his own statement as well, stating he did nothing wrong.

After this, I will not be talking about this matter until after the legal process plays itself out, and I would advise everyone in the organization to do the same and just concentrate on preparation for the 2015 season.

“The decision handed down by the league yesterday is unfathomable to me. It is routine for discipline in the NFL to be reduced upon appeal. In the vast majority…

Orioles Go For Sweep Of Reeling Braves

CBS Baltimore

(AP) — After he won 29 games the last two seasons, the Baltimore Orioles were expecting more of the same from Chris Tillman in 2015.

It took half a season, but it appears they’ve finally gotten that pitcher back.

Tillman tries to continue his dominant stretch and pitch the Orioles to a fifth consecutive win Wednesday night against the reeling Atlanta Braves.

This had all the makings of a lost season for Tillman, who had an AL-worst 6.22 ERA with 10 homers surrendered through June 21. He’s changed course completely over his last five starts, however, going 2-0 with a 1.38 ERA, walking six, striking out 28 and allowing no home runs. Seattle’s Felix Hernandez (1.09) is the only AL pitcher with a better ERA during that span.

After tossing one-hit ball over eight innings and retiring the last 23 batters he faced in a 3-0 victory at Detroit, Tillman…
