ENGLEWOOD, Colo. [url=http://www.salenikeshoesaustralia.com/air-vapormax-clearance/vapormax-2019-cheap.html]Vapormax 2019 Sale Australia[/url] . -- Broncos defensive end Derek Wolfe was alert and recovering at a Denver hospital Saturday after suffering seizure-like symptoms when the teams bus pulled into the airport Friday afternoon for the flight to Kansas City. Wolfe wont play in Sundays showdown against the Chiefs. Team doctors began treating Wolfe on the bus, then summoned an ambulance to take him to a hospital, where the second-year pro from the University of Cincinnati underwent a battery of tests Friday night and Saturday. It was determined that Wolfe didnt suffer a stroke or a full-blown seizure, but the Broncos didnt specify the exact cause of his symptoms, saying only that he was doing better Saturday evening and that he was alert and communicating with others Its not known when Wolfe will be released from the hospital or when hell be cleared to resume football. He was fine at Fridays practice and in the locker room afterward. It was only when the bus was pulling into the airport about 90 minutes later that he fell mysteriously ill. One of the Broncos athletic trainers stayed behind with him in Denver. Wolfe is the second Broncos defensive starter who has needed emergency medical attention in the last two weeks. On Nov. 18, safety Rahim Moore underwent surgery to staunch bleeding in the muscle sheath in his lower left leg, a condition known as lateral compartment syndrome that can cost patients a limb or even their life. It announced itself the night before when he was unable to accelerate on a run by Chiefs running back Jamaal Charles in the first half of Denvers game against Kansas City. Wolfe has had a tough second season in the NFL. He was whisked from the field in an ambulance in a preseason game at Seattle after a hit to his head and neck, the feeling to his extremities coming back after a few minutes. He then missed more than a week of practice. In September, he had a bout of food poisoning that led to problems keeping his weight up. Another defensive starter, tackle Kevin Vickerson, went on injured reserve last week after dislocating his right hip Sunday night in Denvers 34-31 overtime loss at New England, leaving the Broncos thin in their rotation of run-stuffers to face Charles in the rematch with their AFC West rivals. On Nov. 4, coach John Fox underwent aortic valve replacement surgery to fix a genetic defect he had hoped to put off until after the Super Bowl. Those plans changed when he fell ill on a golf course in North Carolina during the Broncos bye week. Defensive co-ordinator Jack Del Rio has coached the team in his place, going 2-1. Fox has been cleared by his doctors to return to work on Monday, although it hasnt been determined whether hell coach from the sideline or the booth when the Broncos host Tennessee on Dec. 8.

[url=http://www.salenikeshoesaustralia.com/jordan-1-clearance.html]http://www.salenikeshoesaustralia.com/jordan-1-clearance.html[/url] .com) - Many people at Eastern Washington are waiting to see if star quarterback Vernon Adams Jr.INDIANAPOLIS - Adam Vinatieris greying temples and greyer beard reveal one part of his remarkable career. At age 41, he is the NFLs oldest player.Hes not slowing down.Nine years after the leagues best clutch kicker made the surprising move to leave New England and sign with rival Indianapolis, Vinatieri is still finding ways to kick it in a young mans world.At his age, he could probably just leave practice and say See you on Sunday. But Vinnie works just as much now as he did when he was 25 years old, teammate Pat McAfee said. The reason he is so good and can be so good for however long he wants to be is his work ethic.McAfee was 9 years old when Vinatieri was a rookie in 1996.Over five seasons as Vinatieris understudy, the Colts punter and kickoff specialist says Vinatieri has advised him on everything from how to eat right to finding the proper balance between football and life. McAfee believes those life lessons have helped him thrive, and remain the primary reason Vinatieri seems to be on the cusp of milestones every week.The next chapter could come Sunday night when Vinatieri will try to become the first player in league history with 17 seasons of 100 points. He needs eight points to break a tie with Jason Elam, and it would be a fitting moment as the Patriots (7-2) and Colts (6-3) renew their rivalry.Hes as good of a kicker, good of a clutch kicker, and consistent kicker thats probably ever been in the game, New England coach Bill Belichick said Wednesday. Mentally, hes as tough as they come in terms of concentration, focus, discipline, blocking out all the things that he cant control and just doing his job.Vinatieri, after all, made decisive last-minute field goals in each of New Englands three Super Bowl wins. He earned his fourth Super Bowl ring in his first season with Indy. He made two equally memorable field goals during a New England blizzard, to tie and then beat Oakland, as the Pats made their first title run.Last month, he became first NFL player to score 900 points with two franchises and hes just 60 points away from making it an even 1,000 with both teams. With two points Sunday, hell also join Morten Andersen, Gary Anderson and Jason Hanson as the only players to reach 2,100 career points.TThings havent changed much this year. [url=http://www.salenikeshoesaustralia.com/balenciaga-clearance.html]Balenciaga Australia Sale[/url]. Vinatieri is 32 of 32 on extra points and 20 of 20 on field goals. His current streak of 26 consecutive field goals made is the third longest in franchise history.But Vinatieris legacy cannot be measured purely by numbers.Hes played for Hall of Fame coach Bill Parcells, Hall of Fame finalist Tony Dungy and, of course, Belichick. Hes played with three No. 1 overall draft picks -- Drew Bledsoe, Peyton Manning and Andrew Luck -- in addition to certain Hall of Famer Tom Brady. He also played for the defunct World League of American Football long ago.Not all of his moments have been memorable. His Super Bowl kickoff against Green Bay in 1997, returned for a touchdown by Desmond Howard, has appeared in the NFLs Hall of Fame. It made Howard the only special teams player to ever win the MVP award.Vinatieri put that behind him long ago. An avid hunter, he also learned at a young age about the necessity of maintaining a steady heart rate before taking a shot.Backup quarterback Matt Hasselbeck saw how good he truly is when Vinatieri popped in a video of a lion hunt in Africa. As Vinatieri tracked the animal, the guide started explaining it was no longer safe.I feel like Im pretty unflinchable and my heart was racing, Hasselbeck said. I remember thinking, Theres no way a field goal is going to get his heart racing.Teammates dont just respect Vinatieri for his experiences. Theyve given him one of the rarest titles a kicker can attain, locker room leader.Not surprisingly, Vinatieri doesnt let the milestones, the nickname, the honours or the buzz get in the way of what he does best. Thats how he got a foothold in the NFL. And thats how he intends to keep it until he leaves, on his terms.Its been a lot of fun, he said. There have been so many great moments throughout my career -- the first time you win the Super Bowl is something you dream about as a kid. The Snow Bowl game was fun. Tackling Herschel Walker as rookie was great fun.When you get to my age, you focus on staying healthy and staying productive, he added. If thats a year or three years, I dont know. Im not putting a time on it.___Online:AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and http://twitter.com/AP_NFL ' ' '
