|Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr. Injured, Browns QBs Don’t Separate Themselves In 10-6 WinCBSlocal.com / 6 h. 36 min. ago more|
CLEVELAND (AP) — New York wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. suffered a lower leg injury — on a questionable hit for an exhibition — that the Giants are hoping isn’t serious during their 10-6 loss to the Cleveland Browns on Monday night. Beckham caught an 18-yard pass from Eli Manning and was undercut by cornerback Briean Boddy-Calhoun, who drove his shoulder and helmet into the receiver’s left leg. Beckham was flipped over and his head bounced off the turf. Beckham was upset by what he thought was an unnecessary shot for a preseason game and glared at Boddy-Calhoun as he limped off the field. The Giants (0-2) said Beckham only suffered a sprain, but the team will have further medical tests conducted Monday. One of the NFL’s most electrifying playmakers, the 24-year-old Beckham caught 101 passes last season and recently said he wants to be the league’s highest-paid player. When the game ended, Beckham, who spent the second half on the sideline in street clothes, jogged to the locker room. The Browns (2-0) won their second straight game after going a combined 1-19 in 2016. Beckham’s injury came shortly after more than a dozen Cleveland knelt in a circle on the sideline in silent protest during the national anthem. Several of the players bowed their heads and clasped hands while others showed support by placing their hands on their teammates’ shoulders. All the drama upstaged Cleveland’s quarterback competition. Brock Osweiler started his second straight game and completed 6 of 8 passes for 25 yards in two series. He was intercepted by Giants defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul, who snagged a tipped pass on the Browns’ opening drive. Osweiler came in favored to win the starting job over rookie DeShone Kizer, who scored on a 1-yard sneak and finished 8 of 13 for 74 yards. Browns coach Hue Jackson hopes to name his starting quarterback for the Sept. 10 regular-season opener by Saturday, when Cleveland visits Tampa Bay. Cody Kessler, who appeared to fall out of the race, completed 7 of 7 passes for 50 yards. After sitting out the preseason opener, Manning went 10 of 14 for 80 yards. ROOKIE WATCH Giants: DT Dalvin Tomlinson was credited with two tackles. … RB Wayne Gallman rushed for a team-high 22 yards on five carries. Browns: DE Myles Garrett, the top overall pick in this year’s draft, sacked Manning in the first half . … Jabrill Peppers returned a punt 31 yards, started at strong safety and had four tackles. … TE David Njoku had one catch for 1 yard in his first preseason action after missing the opener with a sore back. SITTING OUT Giants: WRs Darius Powe (hamstring) and Dwayne Harris (upper body) did not play. LB Keenan Robinson remains in the concussion protocol. Browns: RB Isaiah Crowell was a surprise scratch with a groin injury. Pro Bowl LT Joe Thomas sat out as expected along with starting LG Joel Bitonio (knee) and NT Danny Shelton (knee), who both sustained injuries in practice last week. The team has been vague about any specifics about their injuries or how long they could be out. INJURIES Giants: WR Brandon Marshall (shoulder) underwent X-rays after exiting in the third quarter. Results were not immediately made available by the team. … CB Michael Hunter (concussion) and WR Tavarres King (ankle) were also injured. Browns: LB Tank Carder sustained a knee injury in the first quarter and did not return. … DB Justin Currie was helped off the field with an apparent left ankle injury in the fourth quarter. … T Matt McCants (right leg) and rookie DL Larry Ogunjobi were helped off the field in the fourth. UP NEXT Giants: Host the New York Jets on Saturday. Browns: Play at Tampa Bay on Saturday. (© Copyright 2017 The Associated Press. All Rights Reserved.

|Indians Rise To Occasion In Playoff AtmosphereCBSlocal.com / 6 h. 50 min. ago more|
CLEVELAND (92.3 the Fan) – Monday night’s Indians-Red Sox series opener had everything. Home runs, video replays, injuries to key players, injuries to umpires, managers bypassing their closers, managers using their closers in non-save situations, walk-off non-suicide sacrifice bunts; you name it, it happened. But what Monday’s 5-4 walk-off winner had above all was a playoff atmosphere, a potential ALDS rematch from a year ago that felt like such, and had all of the standard quirkiness of playoff baseball. By the end of the night, the Indians did what they had to do despite some rough circumstances, and the Red Sox did not. It won’t matter until October, but it bodes well in late August. Similar to the adversity the defending American League Champions faced a year ago, pitching health come screaming back to the forefront in the 7th inning when Andrew Miller aggravated his right patellar tendinitis. Also similarly, the Indians bullpen picked up Miller and starter Mike Clevinger by throwing 4 2/3 innings of one-hit baseball. Dan Otero spearheaded the effort once Miller left the game, throwing two perfect innings that included a double-play and two strikeouts. He did so on the back of a two-inning effort on Sunday. “I don’t want to harp on it too much, but we’ve been in those situations before,” Otero said. “It’s like we’ve always talked about: Whenever our number is called, we’re ready. We actually live by that adage. Not many bullpens can honestly say that.” The Tribe offense spread their hits around, but nobody was bigger offensively than catcher Roberto Perez. With shades of the 2016 ALDS against the Red Sox, Perez gave the Indians the lead with a three-run home run before laying down a sacrifice bunt that wound up as a walk-off thanks to Brock Holt’s throwing error. Just a .177 hitter to date, Perez has done his best work in the clutch as he did Monday night and a year ago. Such contributions will be needed again come October. “It’s awesome to see him have success,” closer Cody Allen said. “He’s so good behind the plate. He takes so much pride in it. He also puts in a ton of work at the plate, too. Whenever we can get that type of production out of Roberto, it’s awesome.” Defensively, the Indians remained sharp, posting their fourth straight errorless game. Clevinger fielded his position twice in the 1st inning, Giovanny Urshela snared two sharp liners in the 3rd, and Perez almost cascaded into the dugout while fielding a key pop-up off of the bat of the red-hot Andrew Benintendi. But Allen got two key defensive efforts in the top of the 9th to retain the lead as center fielder Bradley Zimmer played a deep single from Christian Vazquez off the wall and rifled it into second base to keep the catcher at first base. Francisco Lindor ended the inning by playing a Texas-leaguer from Mookie Betts into his glove on an over-the-shoulder grab. “Those are kind of game-savers there,” Allen said. “You put them together, because if Zim doesn’t keep the guy at first base, the next ball, he probably tags and goes to third on and you’re looking at third and one out. “Don’t overlook that play.”
|Hue Jackson Hopes To Sort Browns QB Situation Out By Wednesday After Brock Osweiler And DeShone Kizer Fail To Separate ThemselvesCBSlocal.com / 7 h. 10 min. ago more|
CLEVELAND (92.3 The Fan) – The Browns’ quarterback competition has hit the ‘worst case scenario’ stage as the clock is about to strike midnight on it. Head coach Hue Jackson all but begged Cody Kessler, and then Brock Osweiler to win the job and neither seized the moment. DeShone Kizer may have, by default through the first 2 preseason games. As for the competition and who will be named the starter for the upcoming season, it ends soon. “I want to put this to bed by Wednesday,” Jackson said. “I would like to put this thing to bed and just move forward in that direction, and whatever decision we make, we make. We want to make the best one for the Browns.” Jackson has made it clear on multiple occasions that there is no rush to start Kizer in Week 1 but Kessler and Osweiler might be making it a necessity, if not the best – or only – option. “I think it is good probably for the football team to know who their quarterback is going to be for Week 1 so they can rally around him and also that quarterback can start building chemistry with that first string offense,” Osweiler said. “I think that is extremely important but no relief. At the end of the day, I have no regrets towards anything. I have given it everything I have had from studying in April and May to OTAs and training camp and preseason games. We are very fortunate to play for a great football coach here, and I know he will make a great decision.” Osweiler had a brief evening of work. He was pulled after 2 offensive series that saw him complete 6 of 8 passes for 25 yards. His first series featured a holding penalty on right guard Kevin Zeitler on a second-and-7, an illegal contact on third down for a fresh set of downs and a Rod Johnson, who was in at left tackle, false start. His second series ended thanks to a tipped ball by Giants defensive end Olivier Vernon that was intercepted by Jason Pierre-Paul. “It was just a great play by the defense. Sometimes, unfortunately, they win,” Osweiler said. “Those guys are very talented on the other side of the ball, as well, and I think one of their good players got a hand up and was able to tip the ball and make a great play for their team.” Other than completing a bunch of dump offs and screen passes, Osweiler did nothing to definitively settle the debate. In fairness he was also pulled quickly which was more a reflection of Jackson’s desire to play Kizer early than Osweiler’s performance. “That was my plan going into this game,” Jackson said. The competition was a bit tougher for Kizer this time around. “There is the guy with the name of J.P.P. standing across from me. That was definitely an eye opener to be out there with him,” Kizer said. It showed as Kizer struggled with timing and pocket presence and he didn’t muster much in 2 series against New York’s top defenders. But he still managed to complete 8 of 13 passes for 74 yards and 77.1 rating. He also ran 5 times for 35 yards, including a 1-yard touchdown with 1:16 left in the first half and a 10-3 lead. He was also sacked twice. “I completely trust in the process they set in front of me,” Kizer said. “If Wednesday is the day, it is the day. I know that for me, it’s just about getting better, whether I’m the second string guy, third string guy, first string guy.” The TD came as a result of a short field thanks to cornerback Jason McCourty tearing the football out of Giants receiver Sterling Shepard’s hands to give the Browns the ball at the New York 28. Kizer got bailed out of a bad decision early in the third quarter thanks to a defensive holding penalty that cost the Giants an interception on their sideline. He capitalized by rolling off a 15-play, 68-yard drive to move from their own 8 into field goal range for a 39 yard kick and a 10-3 lead. The most important area Kizer needs to correct is protecting himself. “He said he wanted to make sure that he ran into somebody so he could see what it felt like. I go, ‘Nuh uh, that is over with. Get down,’” Jackson said. “He has to learn how to slide. I don’t care how big you are. I have always said these quarterbacks only have so many hits in their bodies so he has to protect himself that way.” While it’s not a pure apples-to-apples comparison especially regarding the level of competition faced, the facts are these: in 6 offensive series this preseason Osweiler hasn’t accounted for a single scoring drive while Kizer has accounted for 4 of them – 3 touchdowns and a field goal – in 9 series. Jackson refused to tip his hand which way he’s leaning but there isn’t a single quarterback that has separated himself in a positive way in camp or the preseason. Good luck Hue.

|Browns Players Choose Prayer As Their Protest During National AnthemCBSlocal.com / 7 h. 43 min. ago more|
CLEVELAND (92.3 The Fan) – A group of at least 11 Browns players chose prayer as their protest in an effort to raise awareness of social injustice and racism. In what was the largest visible display yet since NFL players began the demonstrations, the group huddled in prayer led by linebacker Christian Kirksey during the national anthem prior to Monday night’s nationally televised game with the New York Giants on Monday Night Football. The decision to pray during the anthem came in the wake of a recent protest that turned violent in Charlottesville, Virginia and subsequent comments made by President Donald Trump. “There is a lot of stuff going on in society,” Kirksey said. “Being in the NFL on this big platform, we can be a voice for a lot of people. We meant no disrespect to anyone. We just felt it was the right time, and we needed to do it.” The group also included linebackers Jamie Collins and Christian Kirksey, running backs Isaiah Crowell, Duke Johnson and Terrance Magee, safety Jabrill Peppers, wide receivers Kenny Britt and Ricardo Louis, tight end Seth DeValve and defensive back Calvin Pryor. “It saddens me that in 2017 we have to do something like that,” DeValve said. “I personally would like to say that I love this country. I love our national anthem, I’m very grateful to the men and women who have given their lives and give a lot every day to this country and to serve this country, and I want to honor them as much as I can. “The United States is the greatest country in the world. It is because it provides opportunities to its citizens that no other country does. The issue is that it doesn’t provide equal opportunity to everybody. And I wanted to support my African-American teammates today who wanted to take a knee. We wanted to draw attention to the fact that there’s things in this country that still need to change. I myself will be raising children that don’t look like me, and I want to do my part as well to do everything I can to raise them in a better environment than we have right now.” Rookie quarterback DeShone Kizer, offensive tackle Shon Coleman, punter Britton Colquitt, defensive back Jason McCourty and offensive lineman Marcus Martin stood and supported their teammates by putting their hands on their shoulders. “I think that everybody knows when you turn on your TV or go on social media and see some of the things that are going on, you’re sickened by it,” McCourty said. “Kids look at us, and everybody looks at us. I think when we can show a sense of understanding of what is going on around us and a sense of purpose to want to change, I think that will help not only ourselves and our families, but everybody watching us.” Aware of anger from those who believe the movement that was started last year by former 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick is disrespectful to the flag, servicemen and servicewomen as well as first responders, they hoped a prayer would be viewed and received differently. “We were just praying over the country and praying over things going on,” Kirksey said. “We did it as respectfully as possible and we respect everything that happened with things in the military. We respect all of that. We just felt it was the right time to for us to do this and say a prayer for this country.” A group of Browns players huddle during the national anthem prior to Monday night’s game against the Giants. / (Photo by Daryl Ruiter CBS Cleveland) Kaepernick’s message and motive has been lost in his actions, which is something the Browns players hope doesn’t happen to the message they trieed to send Monday night. “Hopefully, it can start to change things,” McCourty said. “That is the big key – you know two minutes of the national anthem as a protest, but you’d like to see the results of our day to day lives of people just getting along. It’s not even being friends; it’s just being cordial and getting along. “Being in the south for the past eight years, I’ve gotten used to the ‘southern ways’ and I have enjoyed being here. You walk down the street and someone just says hi to you because you’re walking past, and I think that’s where we want to get to, just people loving one another just because we are all human beings.” Last week head coach Hue Jackson came under fire for saying that he hoped he would not have to deal with protests from members of his team before recanting and promising to support their right to do so in a prepared statement he read a few days later. Jackson was unequivocal in his support for his players Monday night. “We respect our players; we respect the flag,” Jackson said. “Those guys came to me and talked to me about it before they ever made a decision to do it. That is the way we feel about it, and we have talked about this. I said at some point in time, they may, and they have.” (© Copyright 2017 CBS Broadcasting Inc. All Rights Reserved.

|Andrew Miller, Carlos Santana Exit Monday Win With InjuryCBSlocal.com / 9 h. 12 min. ago more|
CLEVELAND (92.3 the Fan) – Indians All-Star reliever Andrew Miller exited the team’s Monday game against the Boston Red Sox due to injury after throwing a pitch in the 7th inning. The Indians reported Miller’s injury as re-aggravated right patellar tendinitis. The left-hander came off of the disabled list on August 18th after spending 16 days on the DL with the same injury. It was apparent that the hard-thrower was having some trouble when his fastball, normally around 94 mph, came in to Mookie Betts in the low-90s. It was most apparent to Miller when he walked the All-Star on an 88 mph fastball inside. “The pitch I pulled inside to Mookie, I kinda felt it,” he said. “And I threw one more and it was the same thing.” Both the pitcher and Manager Terry Francona said the left-hander had been feeling good prior to the game. “I felt like we had really kinda turned the corner,” Miller added. “I felt really positive about the way I was warming up and throwing the ball today. I was actually really excited to get out there. It’s baseball. Stuff happens.” Miller was forced to warm up twice when home plate umpire Hunter Wendelstedt left the game an inning after being hit by Boston reliever Joe Kelly’s errant warm up pitch. “I think the long unpredictable stuff that happened beforehand. That’s the way it goes,” Miller said. “I’ve been trying to monitor volume and stuff like that and hopefully have a nice progression. I just think that the way that worked out tonight is just bad luck and unfortunate.” Neither Miller nor Francona were ready to jump to conclusions, and both said that they would wait until Tuesday to make any assessments. “It stinks missing any time,” Miller added. “I’ve already missed 12 days or something like that. I don’t want to do it again. We’ll find out more tomorrow. See how I wake up.” First baseman Carlos Santana followed Miller to the bench soon thereafter, exiting in the top of the 8th with lower back tightness. Santana looked to aggravate his back on the final swing of his at-bat in the bottom of the 6th inning, which ended in a shallow pop to center. Francona said Santana had been dealing with the issue and was almost scratched before the game. “He almost didn’t play,” the skipper said. He had done something in the cage, you know where you just get that muscle spasm. And we’re getting ready to scratch him, but he said, ‘No, I want to play.’ And he kind of toughed it out. On his last at-bat, you could see it was bothering him. Then when he sat down, it kind of grabbed at him.”

CLEVELAND (92.3 the Fan) – It took Jay Bruce a little while to get up to speed in New York when he was traded from Cincinnati on August 1st of 2016. A year later, the 30-year old was dealt back to Ohio, and is having to slow down. “A little different pace here in Cleveland as opposed to midtown Manhattan,” the recently acquired slugger said Monday. “But it’s a good pace.” Having played his first 11 years professionally between Cincinnati and their farm system teams in Dayton, Louisville (KY), Chattanooga (TN), Sarasota (FL) and Billing (MT); the left-hander got a different look at things in his 373 days in the Big Apple. “I kind of say once you get traded to New York, getting traded from New York is always easier,” Bruce joked. “Just from everything. From the city, from the media, from the logistics and everything like that. I really enjoyed it there, but it definitely made it easier this time going through that.” Judging solely from his numbers, the adjustment to New York seemed like it may have complicated Bruce’s approach on the field. In his first 20 appearances with the Mets, the lefty turned in a 12-for-76 performance with 19 strikeouts. Bruce eventually got on track, finishing his first tour of duty in New York with a .219/.294/.391 slash with eight home runs and five doubles over 50 games. The Denton, Texas native wound up putting together a career-year in New York for his first 103 games in 2017, but the move to Cleveland has only helped matters thus far. Despite not playing a game at Progressive Field until Monday, Bruce had an OPS of 1.169 over the Indians’ 11-game road trip. The newest member of the defending American League Champions said the success of the team has only made the move easier. “I came to a group of guys and a team that was great before I got here,” he said. “That alone takes so much of the potential pressure off of you because you’re coming into a situation that was already awesome. For me to be able to kind of slide in and kind of just continue playing baseball the way I play it, preparing the way I prepare – one, it fits in perfectly with these guys so far is what it seems like.” The unfortunate part about the move was that Bruce had just arrived in Philadelphia with the Mets upon hearing he had been traded, at which he was rerouted to Tampa for an epic of a road trip. “Packed for four days, on the road for 11,” he laughed. “Recycled a lot of shirts and pants. But it’s all good here now.” The Bruce family is settled into their new home, as the player’s wife Hannah and son Carter made, as well as Bruce’s mother-in-law packed belongings from New York immediately and got into town on Friday. Bruce said he was glad to finally get back into town to see his family, as well as get into the routine that comes with being at home, albeit a little off-kilter for the time being. He also returns to the park he now calls “home” while having had tremendous success within the confines of Progressive Field. Despite playing in the National League for his entire career until August 9th, Bruce has played 23 games in Cleveland because of the Ohio Cup. In those games, he boasts a .384/.438/.593 split with a 1.031 OPS, all the highest marks at parks in which he has played 23 contests. Bruce also has four home runs and six doubles in that stretch. The three-time All-Star says there is nothing specific about the park that has led him to look like Clark Kent over 23 games, but will try to continue to do what he does in the Forest City. “I said it early on, I’m not trying to be Superman, I’m not trying to be anything other than myself, and I think that’s why the Indians traded for me,” Bruce said. “It’s been great so far, and like I said, there’s no pressure because this team was already doing what they were doing before. “I’m just trying to add another piece to the puzzle.” The soon-to-be free agent only had good things to say about Progressive Field, and may have just been speaking of the playoffs but also may have foreshadowed his next move. “It’s a really nice stadium,” he said. “I’ve always enjoyed playing here and I look forward to playing a lot more games here.”

|Man Who Shot Judge Is Father Of Steubenville Player Convicted Of RapeCBSlocal.com / 13 h. 33 min. ago more|
STEUBENVILLE, Ohio (AP) — The man who shot and wounded a judge outside a county courthouse before being gunned down by a probation officer was the father of a Steubenville High School football player who was convicted of rape in 2013, authorities said Monday. Jefferson County Judge Joseph Bruzzese Jr. was shot at around 8 a.m. near the courthouse in Steubenville, just across the Ohio River from West Virginia’s northern panhandle, roughly 30 miles (48 kilometers) west of Pittsburgh. Authorities identified the gunman as Nathaniel “Nate” Richmond, the father of Ma’Lik Richmond. Ma’Lik, then 17, served about 10 months in a juvenile lockup after being convicted with another Steubenville High School football player of raping a 16-year-old girl during an alcohol-fueled party in 2012. The case brought international attention to the eastern Ohio city of 18,000 and led to allegations of a cover-up to protect the football team. Investigators are still looking for a motive in the shooting and haven’t found a connection to the rape case, said Jefferson County Prosecutor Jane Hanlin. A visiting judge from Hamilton County, where Cincinnati is located, handled the vast majority of the rape case. Courthouse video on Monday shows both the judge and Nate Richmond firing about five times each, said Jefferson County Sheriff Fred Abdalla. “Whoever thought this could happen here?” Abdalla said. Steubenville City Manager James Mavromatis tells WTOV-TV that Bruzzese was talking after being wounded. He was flown to a Pittsburgh-area hospital. Republican Gov. John Kasich said he was told the judge would survive. The attack had to be intentional because people know about the reserved spots where judges park, said one of Bruzzese’s judicial colleagues. Judge Joseph Corabi said he and the county’s two other judges park in reserved spots next to the courthouse in eastern Ohio. Judges then walk a few feet down what’s known as “Courthouse Alley” to a side entrance to the building, said Corabi, the Jefferson County juvenile and probate court judge. “Everybody knows who parks there. That’s why it’s not an accident what happened. He was clearly an intended target,” Corabi said. Ma’Lik Richmond is currently on the Youngstown State football team but isn’t allowed to play this season, the school said earlier this month in responding to criticism surrounding his participation. Corabi said Bruzzese is known as an avid hunter. He called him fair, hard-working, well-liked and “a tough son of a gun.” “He is very intelligent and he can cut to the chase,” Corabi said. “He spots issues and he resolves the issues.” Bruzzese, 65, hears general and domestic relations cases as one of two judges serving in Jefferson County Common Pleas Court. Bruzzese has served on that court since 1997, according to Ohio Supreme Court records. He was most recently re-elected in 2014 for another six-year term. Bruzzese had likely arrived early to review his usual Monday morning batch of legal motions, Corabi said. Local media reported that the suspect’s body could be seen lying next to a car at the drive-thru of a neighboring bank. Police said a man who was in the car with him was taken into custody. The courthouse was closed for the day as local and state authorities helped secure the scene. Jefferson County Commissioner Thomas Graham told WTOV that some courthouse workers witnessed the “tragic situation” and that people would need time to process what had happened. The state crime lab will help investigate the shooting, said Republican Attorney General Mike DeWine. The chief justice of the Ohio Supreme Court called the attack a “cowardly ambush” and urged court personnel — especially judges — to take extra precautions. The attack “reminds us all of the very real potential for violence against judges,” Maureen O’Connor said. “Violence against judges represents an attack on the Rule of Law, the foundation of our country (© Copyright 2017 The Associated Press.

|Meyer: Freshman RB J.K. Dobbins Earned Right To PlayCBSlocal.com / 15 h. 23 min. ago more|
By MITCH STACY, AP Sports Writer COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — The parents of true freshman running back J.K. Dobbins will get a call soon from an Ohio State coach to say their son will make his college football debut. That’s a tradition at Ohio State, and it’s also an indication that Dobbins likely will play significant snaps in the opener against Indiana next week. Everyone from the coaching staff to the defensive linemen is talking about the speed of the kid from La Grange, Texas, and his ability to make defenders miss. His debut is among the most anticipated of any true freshman in recent years. Coach Urban Meyer said 1,000-yard rusher Mike Weber, recovering from a hamstring injury, went full speed for the first time in camp on Monday. He said Weber will be ready to go next week, but Dobbins is going to play. “He’s earned that right,” Meyer said. Meyer said Dobbins reminds him of Raekwon McMillan in terms of how former Ohio State linebacker arrived on campus already “kind of a grown man.” “J.K. is the same,” Meyer said. “He came in here and he’s an excellent student, one of the best workers in the weight room and then on top of that, God’s gifted him great speed, elusiveness. He’s a real one. We’re happy he’s here.” Dobbins jumped over other backups in preseason camp to secure a role as the No. 2 guy. Running backs coach Tony Alford said he won’t rule out regularly using both ball carriers, depending on how Weber is playing. “He’s smart,” Alford said. “This is not to take anything away from anybody else, but in my 22 years this guy has picked it up faster than anybody I’ve ever been around as a true freshman. He’s picked it up, he understands the offenses, the nuances of it. “And he plays hard. He goes so hard at everything he does, which is part of the culture of this program.” Weber acknowledged that it’s been hard dealing with the injury and watching Dobbins get the reps in front of him. “I’m very anxious, I’ve been anxious since I got hurt,” he said. “Coach talked to me about it and he told me to be patience because hamstrings are very important.” Demario McCall, a backup to Weber last year, has been running at H-back behind Parris Campbell. He’ll also return punts, along with receiver K.J. Hill. ABOUT THOSE KICKERS Placekicker Sean Nuernberger is again competing for the starting job despite being in his fourth year in the program. Nuernberger broke all sorts of Ohio State records in the national championship year of 2014 but hasn’t been the same since. In 2015, he split time with senior transfer Jack Willoughby and sat out with a groin injury last year as walk-on Tyler Durbin handled kicking duties. Durbin is gone, Nuernberger is healthy and true freshman Blake Haubeil is challenging for his job. “Right now Sean is ahead of him, but not by a very far margin,” Meyer said. TWO-A-DAYS? GOOD RIDDANCE Co-defensive coordinator and special-teams coordinator coach Kerry Coombs says the demise of two-a-day practices is sitting well with Ohio State players and coaches. The NCAA instituted a rule last spring prohibiting multiple contact practices a day in preseason. That came after a study and report with recommendations on keeping players healthy. As a result, schools were allowed to extend the preseason by a week. “It’s a completely different schedule,” Coombs noted. “It’s the NFL schedule. The routine is positive. Our kids know what to expect every day. It’s morning meetings, it’s morning practice, rest time, meetings, walk through. I think our evening walkthroughs have been phenomenal. I think they’re a difference-maker for us. I think we are getting more out of camp than when we had two-a-days.” ___ More AP college football at http://www.collegefootball.ap.org and https://twitter.com/AP_Top25. ___ Follow Mitch Stacy at http://twitter.com/mitchstacy (© Copyright 2017 The Associated Press.
