There's growing concern about Joshua Garnett's knee injury Albert Wilson Jersey Dolphins , 49ers coach Kyle Shanahan said Friday, after the guard missed the last five practices of training camp.
"Josh said that he doesn't feel right, so that's always worrisome when a player says he doesn't feel right," said Shanahan. "And I know Josh is getting a few second opinions. So waiting until our doctors talk to other people and see what conclusion they come to."
Garnett began camp in a heated competition to start at right guard after missing all of 2017 following surgery on the same right knee last August. The team said Garnett banged knees with a teammate July 28 and he was expected to return this week.
Part of the concern is the uncertainty surrounding the injury, which the team initially called "not significant."
"It depends who you talk to," Shanahan said. "That's what we're trying to find out and that's what he's trying to find out. Josh went through a lot last year with his knee."
San Francisco signed Jonathan Cooper and Mike Person in the offseason to also be in the mix at right guard.
Cooper, who had offseason knee surgery Reggie Jackson Jersey , hasn't participated in full-team drills yet after returning to individual drills earlier this week. Person has been given the majority of the work with the starters while second-year player Erik Magnuson has also been involved.
NOTES: CB Richard Sherman sat out the second half of Friday's practice after feeling tightness in his hamstring, Shanahan sa6id . Rookie WR Dante Pettis was given the day off after tweaking his groin . Rookie LB Fred Warner sat out Friday after suffering a chest contusion earlier in the week . DE Jeremiah Attaochu (groin) was also given the day off . The 49ers will have the day off Saturday before returning to practice Sunday.
Since divisional play began in 1969, only three times has a division had two teams with at least 100 wins.
That could happen again this year in the AL East – and maybe the AL West as well.
The Yankees, Red Sox, Astros and Mariners are all on pace to win over 100 games, and they’ve created tight races atop those two divisions. With two wild cards in each league, those four teams have some breathing room in the race for the postseason Cheap Mark Walton Jersey , but there should be plenty of incentive to win the division title and avoid the one-game, winner-take-all scenario that the wild cards have to deal with.
The Yankees and Red Sox just played a three-game series in New York. The games weren’t all that suspenseful – they ended 8-1, 11-0 and 11-1, with the Yankees winning two of three.
The first time two teams from one division won at least 100 games was in 1980, when the Yankees (103-59) outlasted the Orioles (100-62) atop the AL East. A seven-game winning streak in mid-September helped New York hold on.
In 1993, the last year before the wild card, the Braves (104-58) and Giants (103-59) dueled all the way to the final day before San Francisco was done in by a 12-1 loss to the rival Dodgers. Atlanta was 10 games out on the morning of July 23 but went 49-16 the rest of the way.
The only time in the six-division era that a 100-win team failed to finish first was when Oakland went 102-60 in 2001 and still ended up 14 games behind a 116-win Seattle team.
None of the teams involved in those three previous examples made it to the World Series Jessie Bates III Color Rush Jersey , so consider that a word of caution to this year’s American League behemoths.
Some other developments around the majors:
If the Mariners make the postseason this year, it will be their first appearance since that remarkable 2001 season. Baseball’s next-longest drought belongs to the Marlins, who haven’t made it since winning the World Series as a wild card in 2003.
The addition of extra wild cards has made it easier for teams to avoid long stretches without a postseason berth. The Padres haven’t made it since 2006 and the White Sox haven’t been in since 2008. Aside from those two teams, the Marlins and the Mariners, every major league franchise has made the postseason at least once since 2011.
The outfield wall in Toronto is high enough that it doesn’t lend itself to home run-robbing catches. Blue Jays center fielder Kevin Pillar figured out a solution, however, planting a foot on the wall and using it to vault himself up while making a catch on a drive by Detroit’s Nicholas Castellanos. Even Castellanos applauded that catch Sunday.
LINES OF THE WEEK
Two from the Red Sox-Yankees series: Chris Sale allowed one hit in seven innings http://www.dolphinsauthorizedshops.com/authentic-durham-smythe-jersey , striking out 11 in Boston’s 11-0 win Saturday night. The following evening, it was New York delivering an 11-1 blowout. Aaron Hicks hit three home runs for the Yankees in that game.
Sale has a 1.73 career ERA against the Yankees, best among pitchers with at least 10 starts against them since 1920. But Sunday’s six-homer barrage brought New York’s season total to 137, a franchise record for before the All-Star break.
