Piling On: DeSean Jacksons Season Over

The Eagles’ offense was dealt yet another blow on Monday night.
Andy Reid announced at his day-after press conference that DeSean Jackson will
hit injured reserve after suffering multiple fractures to his ribs in the 30-22
loss to Carolina.

Jackson is the fourth starter on offense to be placed on IR,
along with Jason Peters, who Reid today announced would not be activated from
the non-football injury list. They join Jason Kelce and Todd Herremans.

Jackson also becomes the ninth starter on offense to miss at
least one game this season due to an injury. Only Evan Mathis and Stanley
Havili are still on track to appear in all 16 games. Jason Avant and King
Dunlap have also been on the shelf.

DeSean signed a five-year contract worth around $50 million in the
offseason. He was not having his most explosive season – then again, nobody is –
but the numbers have been okay all things considered. Djacc finishes with 45
receptions for 700 yards (63.6 per game, 15.6 per reception) and 2 TD.

This truly has been a season from hell.

At least two Giants players forcefully dragged Strickland from the middle of the brawl all the way into the dugout.

In the 2014 NL Division Series, Harper hit two home runs off Str

NBA Finals: Warriors coach Steve Kerr not well yet, but hasn't ruled himself out for Game 1

OAKLAND, Calif. -- Golden State's Steve Kerr expects to decide soon whether he will coach in the NBA Finals, saying Monday he's not yet ready but hasn't ruled himself out for Game 1.

Kerr said: "As of right now I would not coach Thursday night. It's still up in the air." He said that by Game 1, he might make a decision on his status.

The reigning NBA Coach of the Year, still not feeling well after a May 5 procedure to repair a spinal fluid leak, addressed the media Monday when acting coach Mike Brown was out with the flu.

He joked: "I told the team the good news is the team is really healthy, the bad news is the coaching staff is dropping like flies."

Brown has been coaching the team since Game 3 of the first round at Portland, with Kerr assisting at practice and from the locker room before and during games.
