Reuben Foster had the best jersey of Rams-49ers even if he didn't play


49ers rookie linebacker Reuben Foster suffered a high ankle sprain in the 49ers’ Week 1 loss to the Panthers. The sprain has kept Foster out for the team’s game against the Rams on Thursday night, but he’s still making himself seen.

Foster, unlike most players who are injured, was wearing his jersey on the sideline. But instead of Foster on the back, it said “SAVAGE”:

This Temple lineman got a strip-sack, recovery, and long TD, all by himself

It gave the Owls their first touchdown of the night.

This is one heck of a Piesman moment play. Late in the second quarter of Temple vs No. 21 USF, Owls defensive lineman Jacob Martin gave his team its first touchdown of the night when he strip-sacked Bulls quarterback Quinton Flowers and returned it to the house.

The score cut the Bulls’ lead to 20-7, so Temple has a bit of momentum as it heads to the locker room at Raymond James Stadium. Martin is a senior who finished with 18 tackles...

Todd Gurley had 3 touchdowns in the first half vs. 49ers on ‘Thursday Night Football’

Gurley is giving the 49ers defense fits.

The Rams’ 24-13 first half lead over the 49ers on Thursday Night Football was fueled by Todd Gurley.

Gurley had three touchdowns for the Rams in the first half, and he made them look easy. The first one came after the Rams intercepted Brian Hoyer on the very first play of the game, taking the ball down to the 49ers’ 3-yard line, where he punched it in.

Later on in the first quarter, Gurley got this 7-yard receiving touchdown from Jared Goff, who...

Rob Manfred says MLB is "redoubling" protective netting efforts after Yankee Stadium incident

A young fan was hit with a foul ball at Yankee Stadium earlier this week.

On Wednesday, a young fan was hit with a foul ball at Yankee Stadium along the third base line. She was cared for by first aid workers before going to the hospital, where her father said that “she’s doing all right” but that it was still too soon to tell whether surgery would be necessary.

Reactions from many in and around the sport were swift and decisive: more protective netting is needed at many stadiums....

Temple’s fake field goal attempt against USF went horribly wrong

Not ideal!

During Thursday night’s game between the Temple Owls and the No. 21 USF Bulls, there was a pretty bad fake field goal attempt by the Owls in the first quarter. Temple lined up to try a 52-yard field goal but the holder, Owls quarterback Logan Marchi, caught the snap and took off to throw it — but the thing is it looked like he didn’t even have anyone to throw to.

Oh noooo

Marchi’s one receiver on the play, who came from the right side of the formation, turned to block...

Rams intercept Brian Hoyer on first play of game, score TD on next play all in 12 seconds

That was fast.

The San Francisco 49ers had one of the worst possible starts to Thursday Night Football that you could have possibly conceived against the Rams.

The Rams kicked off to start the game. On the 49ers’ very first play on offense, Brian Hoyer threw an interception to Nickell Robey-Coleman at the 49ers’ 28-yard line, who took the ball back to the 3.

On the Rams’ first play on offense, Todd Gurley punched it in from 3 yards out to make it a 7-0 game. The Rams scored in the...

The 49ers announced that Hyde would be questionable to return to the game. Hyde had gotten off to a good start in the game, with four carries for 29 yards early.
