Raiders lineman calls Kevin Kolb 'Scared,' Proceeds to Explain in Detail

Raiders lineman calls Kevin Kolb 'Scared,' Proceeds to Explain in Detail

We told you Kevin Kolb's first preseason game of 2012 -- when he threw for a pick on his first play and spent the
rest of his time running for dear life before getting his ribs bruised
-- didn't go so well.

Now Raiders defensive tackle
Tommy Kelly is telling you Kolb's third game didn't go much better.
Kolb was 3 of 3 for 22 yards on the Cardinals' opening drive, but was
sacked in the end zone by Kelly on the next possession for a safety,
prompting Kelly to declare to his teammates as he returned to the
sideline, "That boy's scared."

PFT writes
that the
audio was picked up by a sideline reporter during a "Raiders TV
broadcast being streamed through’s Preseason Live

Kelly went into greater detail about Kolb's
confidence in the pocket after the game, telling the

is skittish. He is scared back there," Kelly said. "Anytime anybody
gets close to him he starts looking at the refs. As a defensive lineman
you love a quarterback like that. He ain't even trying to look at the
routes no more. He is paying attention to us and you ain't going to get
nothing done like that."

Kolb finished 3 of 6
through the air and was sacked three times, while once again scrambling
for his well-being.

That said, Kolb's competition
for the starting job didn't get much of a chance, as Cardinals head
coach Ken Whisenhunt didn't want John Skelton playing behind the
second-string O-line -- just imagine how bad they
have to be -- and didn't want the starting line to play into the
second half.

Skelton was disappointed he didn't see
more time -- taking just five snaps but throwing for a touchdown -- as
was Whisenhunt. Asked whether he was about to make judgments about his
quarterback battle after the game, the coach told

"Not with only five plays for
John," Whisenhunt said. "I think I'll have to get John some extended
time this next week."

Yeah, that sounds like
it bodes well for Kevin.

Update: Kevin Kolb calls Tommy Kelly "clueless," says Kevin Kolb isn't scared of anything. End update.

Union emotional after Maurice Edu's season-ending injury

Union emotional after Maurice Edu's season-ending injury

CHESTER, Pa. — On the eve of his comeback after missing nearly 13 months with a left tibia stress fracture and other related injuries, Union midfielder Maurice Edu fractured his left fibula on Saturday, keeping him out for the 2016 playoffs and beyond.

“I was trying to take the shot on goal and my foot got stuck in the turf,” Edu said Sunday, in his blue Union-issued suit and supported by crutches. “My ankle rolled and twisted and it kind of snapped a little bit. I heard it crack, and a lot of pain from there. I got a scan afterward, and there was a break.”

There's no timetable his return.

Edu, 30, has spent over a calendar year fighting various injuries that have kept him out of game action. His trouble began on Sept. 30, 2015, when he played through the U.S. Open Cup final with a partially torn groin and sports hernia. It was during Edu’s recovery from those injuries that he developed a stress fracture.

"A little bit frustration. A lot of frustration, to be honest," he said. "But all I can do now is get back to work, focus on the positives and make sure that my situation isn’t a distraction from the team."

Edu’s teammates were equally devastated by the news. Edu, the Union captain when healthy, is popular and well-respected in the locker room.

"I feel so bad for him," said Alejandro Bedoya, who wore a dedication to Edu under his jersey on Sunday. "He’s one of my good friends, so I was looking forward to playing alongside him. I know how hard he’s worked to get back, and to see him go out like that, it’s heartbreaking. I’m sad for his loss and I hope he stays strong."

Edu, who has been with the Union since 2014, returned to training in July and played three conditioning appearances with the Union’s USL team, Bethlehem Steel FC. He was on the bench for the Union’s last three games and was set to make his first appearance in over a year against the New York Red Bulls on Sunday, a game the Union eventually lost, 2-0 (see game story).

"We’re gutted for Mo," Union manager Jim Curtin said. "He was slated to start today. It’s real upsetting because he’s worked so hard to get back on the field. It’s been a tough 2016 for him, but I know he’ll come back stronger."

While he was visibly shaken by recent injury, Edu is driven to return.

"What happened, happened," Edu said. "I have no control over that. The only thing I do have control over is my next steps from here, how I prepare myself mentally and emotionally and how I continue to support this group."

Watch: Malcolm Jenkins saves Jon Dorenbos, who can't work his magic with bow tie

The magician himself needed help on this one.

His bow tie.

Hey, this is what teammates are for, right?

On Monday night, Eagles longsnapper and NBC's America's Got Talent star Jon Dorenbos emceed safety Malcolm Jenkins' third annual Blitz, Bow Ties and Bourbon charity event, which raises money for Philadelphia's youth and underserved communities.

Dorenbos, quite the wizard with his hands and card tricks, couldn't solve the bow tie.

“I had no clue,” Dorenbos said in an interview with CSN's John Clark. "In fact, this is the first bow tie I’ve ever worn.”

Jenkins had his back. Watch the Eagles' leader go to work and save Dorenbos in the video above.
