Talk of Antonio Gates‘ return to the Chargers has remained just that at this point http://www.dallascowboysteamonline.com/tony-romo-jersey
, so Virgil Green remains the top man on the depth chart at tight end with Hunter Henry out for the year.
Green signed with the Chargers as a free agent this offseason and said after spring work that he felt he was adjusting well to life with quarterback Philip Rivers. Based on what Rivers has to say, that connection has gotten stronger since the start of training camp.
“[Our connection] is growing,” Rivers said, via the team’s website. “We’re working through how I like things http://www.indianapoliscoltsteamonline.com/al-woods-jersey
, what I’m expecting on certain routes. He’s getting a feel for this offense. He was in it similarly with [former Chargers coach Mike] McCoy [in Denver]. Virgil is going to be just fine. He has played a lot of football and is a good football player. Those kind of things, you’ll see more of that and more plays like that.”
Green has 71 catches in his seven-year career and came to the Chargers with the expectation that he’d be a blocking complement to Henry in the offense. That plan has changed and Rivers’ history says a close connection with Green will lead to a lot more work as a receiver during his first year with his new team.
Royals outfielder Jorge Soler will miss at least six weeks after breaking a bone in his left foot while leaving the batter’s box in Kansas City’s series opener against Houston.
Soler had provided some much-needed punch to a struggling Kansas City offense, batting .265 with nine homers and 28 RBIs. He has been especially crucial while fellow outfielder Jorge Bonifacio finishes off his 80-game suspension for testing positive for a banned substance.
The Royals’ Triple-A affiliate in Omaha is on a West Coast trip, making it impossible to get anybody to the ballpark in time for Saturday afternoon’s game against the Astros. The Royals will place Soler on the disabled list and make a corresponding roster move before Sunday’s series finale.
”It’s very tough. He was very disappointed http://www.buffalobillsteamonline.com/jordan-poyer-jersey
, very upset last night,” Royals manager Ned Yost said. ”He knew something was wrong. He was putting together a really, really good, solid year where he’s getting a chance to play every day and was doing some nice things.”
Soler’s injury occurred in the seventh inning of the Royals’ 7-3 loss on Friday night. He stumbled out of the batters’ box and crumpled to the ground before limping to the dugout Pat O'Donnell Jersey
, and an X-ray revealed a fracture in the first metatarsal on his left foot, just behind the big toe.
Yost said a CT scan showed the break isn’t big enough to warrant surgery at this time, but Soler will be evaluated again in about 10 days to determine the next course of treatment.
Also Saturday, Yost said Lucas Duda will begin his rehab assignment Sunday with Omaha. The first baseman has been out since May 14 with plantar fasciitis in his right foot.
Bonifacio could be ready to rejoin the club on July 1.
