    Getty Amon-Ra St. Brown runs with the ball in 2022 against Seattle. The Detroit Lions have been dealing with tough injury news left and right so far this season, but finally, they got some good news on Tuesday. Wideout Amon-Ra St. Brown, who was fighting an ankle injury on Sunday, will be alright according to NFL Network reporter Tom Pelissero. Test results were positive and the injury isn’t expected to be a long-term issue even if Detroit could be careful with St. Brown in the coming weeks. #Lions budding star WR Amon-Ra St. Brown underwent tests Monday on the ankle injury he suffered at Minnesota, and the results were encouraging overall, per sources. They’ll be cautious, but if St. Brown misses time, it shouldn’t be anything long-term. — Tom Pelissero (@TomPelissero) September 27, 2022 “Lions budding star WR Amon-Ra St. Brown underwent tests Monday on the ankle injury he suffered at Minnesota, and the results were encouraging overall, per sources.

    Getty Images Wan'Dale Robinson during training camp in 2022. The New York Giants had a worrying injury during their gutsy 21-20 comeback win against the Tennessee Titans in Week 1. Rookie wide receiver Wan’Dale Robinson exited in the first half with an apparent knee injury after playing just nine snaps and making one catch for five yards. It was announced after the game that X-rays were negative for Robinson but that he was going to get an MRI on Monday. Giants head coach Brian Daboll revealed Monday that Robinson is day-to-day, according to the team’s website managing editor Dan Salomone. Daboll said rookie WR Wan'Dale Robinson is "day-to-day" with the knee injury. — Dan Salomone (@Dan_Salomone) September 12, 2022 However, Daboll wouldn’t answer if a serious injury was avoided. While tests have shown no signification structural damage, there should be more information on the severity of the injury during the week. New York on Sunday was already playing without two notable 2022 draft picks — edge rusher Kayvon Thibodeaux (sprained MCL) and safety Dane Belton (collarbone). Both were...
    Getty Anthony Barr #42 of the Dallas Cowboys tackles Chris Godwin #14 of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers (Photo by Richard Rodriguez/Getty Images) Chris Godwin was knocked from Sunday’s 19-3 over the Dallas Cowboys, with an apparent leg injury, but the Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ star wide receiver received encouraging news Monday. The injury Godwin suffered during the first half of Sunday’s game was a hamstring injury, league sources told Heavy, and the initial belief is that the injury is not serious. Sunday night was Godwin’s first game action since tearing his ACL on Dec. 19, 2021, against the division rival New Orleans Saints, and working his way back to getting on the practice field during the latter stages of training camp last month. Godwin did not return to the game after halftime, after being sidelined by the injury. In his return to action, Godwin caught three passes for 35 yards, while averaging 11.7 yards per catch. The Buccaneers were fortunate to have Godwin in the opener, after he was initially listed as questionable. The expectation, as of Monday, is...
    Rarely has “questionable” carried such hope for the Miami Heat as it did when the team issued its injury report Friday for Saturday’s 8:30 p.m. Game 3 of the Eastern Conference finals against the Boston Celtics at TD Garden. Point guard Kyle Lowry, who has missed seven of the past nine games with a strained left hamstring, including the past three, was upgraded to questionable, traveling with the team to Boston. Just as encouraging was the listing of power forward P.J. Tucker as questionable a day after he left the Heat’s Game 2 blowout loss at FTX Arena with a knee irritation. The Heat, in fact, could be whole for the first time in weeks, with the only two other players on the team’s injury report both expected to play. For now, the Heat are listing both Max Strus and Gabe Vincent as questionable with hamstring strains, with neither having missed time with those ailments. Similarly, the Celtics’ injury report was reduced. Guard Marcus Smart and big man Al Horford, who both missed Boston’s Game 1 road loss, no longer...
    David Bakhtiari seems to be well on his way towards rejoining the Green Bay Packers soon. The Green Bay Packers are riding a five-game winning streak and could be getting back their Pro Bowl left tackle David Bakhtiari before too long. Bakhtiari had been placed on the PUP list to start the year. He is working his way back from a torn ACL suffered last last season. Heading into Week 7’s home game vs. the Washington Football Team, Packers head coach Matt LaFleur said Bakhtiari will begin practicing this week. This officially opens his three-week window to return to the Packers roster after having spent time on IR. What games could Bakhtiari potentially return to the Packers’ starting lineup this season? #Packers coach Matt LaFleur tells reporters that All-Pro LT David Bakhtiari (ACL) will begin practicing this week, opening his three-week window to return. — Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) October 18, 2021 David Bakhtiari injury update: Packers LT has been cleared to start practicing Green Bay hosts Washington in Week 7.

    Getty Patrick Williams At one point, we thought Chicago Bulls second-year forward Patrick Williams could miss a few weeks of the regular season. Now it appears he might be on the floor for the team’s final preseason matchup with the Memphis Grizzlies. Per NBC Sports’ Rob Schaefer, head coach Billy Donovan gave the optimistic and encouraging update. Billy Donovan said Bulls want to get Patrick Williams some work with player dev staff on Monday, then will evaluate status for practice Wednesday/Thursday and possibly preseason finale on Friday. Nothing definitive yet — Donovan did add that was an optimistic projection. — Rob Schaefer (@rob_schaef) October 10, 2021 If Williams is back for the final preseason game, fans might get a glimpse of the team’s entire rotation–sans Coby White. That’s exciting. The Bulls play the Grizzlies on October 15 so there is a full five days for Williams to be evaluated. He suffered a severely sprained ankle last month, but it would appear he is healing well. Williams’ return will create a good problem for Donovan. Where Will Patrick Williams...
    Mets finally get some encouraging news about ace Jacob deGrom Andres Chavez September 15, 2021 Share on facebook Facebook Share on twitter Twitter Share on reddit Reddit New York Mets’ ace Jacob deGrom, who has been out since early July and is currently on the 60-day injured list, is finally making some progress after spending weeks throwing from flat ground as he recovers from an elbow injury. DeGrom has been on the shelf since July 7. At the time, his issue was deemed as right elbow inflammation, but Mets’ president of baseball operations Sandy Alderson recently came clean and explained that he was dealing with a partially torn UCL that resolved itself. The pitcher himself confirmed the news last week, saying that he feels healthy and ready to ramp up. The Mets badly need his contributions on the MLB, and on Tuesday, he appears to have taken a monumental step forward. Yesterday, deGrom threw off a mound for the first time since late July. As a reminder, he had started his...
    We have a positive update on the health of injured Oakland Athletics pitcher Chris Bassitt. The Oakland Athletics received encouraging news on the health of starting pitcher Chris Bassitt, who exited in Tuesday’s night game vs. the Chicago White Sox after taking line drive to the face. Bassitt will have surgery in a few days after the swelling subsides to his injured face and remain in Chicago for a week or two. He suffered a fractured cheekbone and broke his upper jawbone with the line drive. All other scans of Bassitt’s face came back clean after he was transported to Rush University Medical Center in Chicago. Bassitt’s vision is in good shape and the A’s will release more information as warranted. There is no timetable for Bassitt’s return to the mound. A’s release an official medical update on Chris Bassitt. All things considered it seems like good news for his long term health. Thoughts with him and his family as he continues to recover. pic.twitter.com/bjCQfrXPMm — Melissa Lockard (@melissalockard) August 18, 2021 Oakland Athletics receive great news on the health...
    Chris Bassitt is recovering Wednesday morning after being struck in the head by a line drive in Tuesday night’s A’s loss to the White Sox. According to MLB Network’s Jon Heyman, Bassitt’s recovery will include surgery after the swelling from the injury subsides. Heyman reported that Bassitt’s vision is 20/20 but he suffered a broken cheekbone and upper jawbone. Longtime MLB reporter Ken Rosenthal confirmed he’d heard the same. Oakland manager Bob Melvin said Tuesday night postgame that Bassitt had received stitches. Bassitt never appeared to lose consciousness after taking a 100 mph comebacker to the right side of his head off the bat of White Sox outfielder Brian Goodwin. His A’s teammates and White Sox opponents reacted with shock as medical personnel from both teams assisted Bassitt, who was carted out of Guaranteed Rate Field and taken to a hospital. Bassitt’s wife, Jess, was at the game and traveled with the pitcher in an ambulance. The A’s players did not speak after the game, but the White Sox shared their concern for Bassitt. Chicago...
    Tucker Carlson accused CNN of trying to force vaccines onto the hesitant in a Wednesday night monologue, asking why a news network would be doling out health advice to its viewers. The source of Carlson’s segment was an internal email sent from CNN’s Washington bureau chief to another employee, with the subject line “A majority of unvaccinated Americans say they are unlikely to take the covid vaccine.” In the email itself, the bureau chief wrote: “This is the point re: carrot vs. stick. The carrot is no longer going to work…” That email was mistakenly sent to conservative activist Charlie Kirk, who provided it to Carlson, who took it as proof CNN is planning on flogging its vaccine-hesitant viewers with a big stick. “As a channel, CNN shouldn’t have a position on whether you should take medicine or not, because it’s a news channel,” Carlson said. “It’s not a health agency.” “Why is a news channel doing this? Any news channel. A lot of them are,” Carlson added. Oddly enough, there is a network that is far more guilty of...
    The Kansas City Chiefs are getting good news on quarterback Patrick Mahomes, who went through OTAs without any issues. If Patrick Mahomes is upright, the Kansas City Chiefs are Super Bowl LVI favorites. Good news for those in the heartland? Mahomes is indeed upright. And then some. On Thursday, the Chiefs wrapped up their first portion of OTAs and Mahomes was present for all three sessions, although he was given the final day off. In his press conference with local media, head coach Andy Reid stated Mahomes was doing very well and wasn’t limited after having offseason foot surgery to fix an injury which occurred in the AFC Divisional round against the Cleveland Browns. Patrick Mahomes is healthy, and the Chiefs are favorites for Super Bowl 56It appears that barring any kind of setback, Kansas City’s most valuable player will be ready to go for the remainder of voluntary OTAs, mandatory minicamp in June and then the start of training camp in late July. With Mahomes under center, the Chiefs are the odds-on favorites in Vegas Sportsbooks to not only...
    Senator Ted Cruz claimed that Democrats are eager to see looting, firebombed police cars, and the general violence that comes with civil unrest because, in his esteem, “it serves their political end.” Cruz’s remarkable claim came during a Tuesday morning appearance on America’s Newsroom when he was asked to opine on Rep. Maxine Waters recent comments in Minneapolis about the civil unrest surrounding both the Derek Chauvin trial for the alleged murder of George Floyd and the recent fatal shooting of an unarmed Daunte Wright during a routine traffic stop. Waters encouraging protestors to stay aggressive and let “them know you mean business” has reportedly drawn bipartisan ire but has mostly been used by many on the conservative end of the media spectrum. Monday night, Tucker Carlson curiously interpreted Rep. Waters’s comments as “do what we say or we will kill you” in a heavy-handed segment that also criticized Water’s lack of appreciation for “Anglo-Saxon” standards. Cruz took the baton from his ideological ally and piled on by claiming Democrats were basically proponents of violent protests because it serves their political...
    Commentary on Pac-12 developments on and off the field (and court) … Rising: Pac-12 basketball Through a combination of flexibility, resolve and good fortune, the Pac-12 managed to play 96.7 percent of the total possible conference games this season (116 out of 120). What comes next is equally challenging: 10 games over four days at T-Mobile Arena, followed by a week of negative COVID tests in order for the NCAA tournament teams to be cleared for travel to Indianapolis. At least one coach, UCLA’s Mick Cronin, has expressed concern over leaving campus to spend time in Las Vegas. And that’s understandable: The Bruins have done a marvelous job, in both basketball and football, fending off COVID pauses. But for the collective, the decision to move forward with the conference tournament was the right call. It provides six teams — the teams on the wrong side of the NCAA bubble — with a chance to qualify for March Madness via the automatic berth. In fact, the optimal outcome for the Pac-12 this week would be 10 games played and one gigantic...
    Miami football fans ought to be excited about this injury update on quarterback D’Eriq King as spring approaches. Miami opens their season against Alabama and it’s expected D’Eriq King will be recovered from his ACL tear to start for the Hurricanes. King tore his ACL in the Canes’ Cheez-It Bowl loss to Oklahoma State in December and there was considerable doubt about whether he’d be ready for the start of the 2021 season. But King has attacked his rehab and cleared every medical checkpoint and is expected to be ready for the start of the season. Miami finished 8-3 and third in the ACC behind Clemson and Notre Dame last season. The Canes were led by the Houston transfer quarterback who replaced their former two-year starter N’Kosi Perry, who has recently entered the transfer portal. King was Mr. Everything for the Canes completing 64.1 percent of his passes for 2,686 yards and 23 touchdowns while rushing for 538 yards on 130 carries and four touchdowns. Great breakdown here – among all the ACC schools listed, Miami once again is most fascinating to...
    “While we understand and support the government’s focus on fighting COVID-19 in Canada, we are surprised by the length of the cruise ban extension,” said the Cruise Lines International Association (CLIA). ) it’s a statement. For CLIA, the revival of cruises has not been impossible, and the proof of this has been the European market. In countries such as Germany, Italy and Greece, journeys have been made with security measures such as the application of COVID-19 tests to all passengers and staff prior to boarding, mandatory quarantine for staff before each trip and other known precautions , such as the use of face masks and distancing. However, the necessary certainty could come until widespread advancement of vaccination campaigns is in place. “The cruise ships have not returned nor will they return soon to the extent that vaccination does not advance in the United States – from where practically all arriving cruise ships leave – or in Mexico,” says Gerardo Herrera, an academic at the Universidad Iberoamericana. “There is a tourist who is willing to take a risk, but...
    12 Money Moves Everyone Should Make in Their 50s 2022 Acura MDX: First Drive Review Best & Worst Refinance Mortgage Companies of 2021 Ad Microsoft Full screen 1/5 SLIDES © Provided by Best Life Dr. Fauci Finally Has Some "Very Encouraging" News About COVID As COVID continues to spread throughout the United States, it can feel like there's little respite from the onslaught of bad news about the virus. However, in a new interview, Anthony Fauci, MD, chief medical adviser to President Joe Biden, says that there's reason to be hopeful about the course of the pandemic. Read on to discover what Dr. Fauci had to say about what's in store for the U.S. in the coming months. In a Jan. 29 panel with Rochelle Walensky, MD, MPH, director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Fauci announced that two new vaccine trials are showing promising results. "One is the soluble protein platform in a study that came out of the UK, from the...
    Don’t let the unusual state of the Giants’ linebackers and one late defensive stand fool you into thinking Blake Martinez is replaceable. Just because the Giants are succeeding with late-round rookies and reclamation projects replacing their season-opening top four outside linebackers doesn’t mean the same thing will happen if their middle linebacker is on the shelf. So, Martinez (lower back) missing the final minutes of Sunday’s win against the Seahawks could have tempered some enthusiasm from a win. Relax. Martinez is expected to manage his injury with treatment. “It doesn’t look like there is necessarily anything serious,” coach Joe Judge said of the injury report. “A big test will be to see if any of the inflammation really increases with these guys on the flight back [from Seattle].” Martinez is second in the NFL with 110 tackles and has two sacks, two forced fumbles and two interceptions. His importance is magnified considering he is surrounded by inexperienced players such as Tae Crowder, Carter Coughlin, Niko Lalos, Cam Brown and Devante Downs.

    It sounds like Ohio State football will be playing Michigan State football after all.Ohio State football is increasingly likely to face Michigan State football on Saturday afternoon. With no margin for error remaining on their quest to get to the Big Ten Championship game, the No. 4 Ohio State Buckeyes have to play their two remaining conference games to be eligible.

    The Las Vegas Raiders are breathing a sigh of relief after getting encouraging news on the health of Josh Jacobs after he sustained an ankle injury vs. the Atlanta Falcons.Josh Jacobs could be back for the Las Vegas Raiders as early as Sunday afternoon in Week 13. In the Silver and Black’s embarrassing road loss to the Atlanta Falcons, Jacobs only had 10 touches and a fumble before exiting the game with an ankle injury. While his injury looked worse on the field, it was revealed to only be a sprain. This means there is a good chance Jacobs will be back out there for the Raiders when they take on the winless New York Jets on Sunday. They will need him. Tests confirmed that it’s just a sprained ankle for #Raiders RB Josh Jacobs. He has a chance to play this week, depending on how he feels.

    National Journal politics editor Josh Kraushaar said there are “hardline voices” in the Republican Party who are discouraging supporters of President Donald Trump from voting in the upcoming Georgia Senate runoff elections — which are set to determine control of the Senate. “Runoffs are all about turnout, and Donald Trump is the best turnout machine for Republicans,” Kraushaar noted on Fox News Friday, as the president prepares to travel to Georgia on Saturday to rally for Senators Kelly Loeffler and David Perdue. Both Republicans are facing Democratic challengers in a runoff this January. “The challenge is what he’s going to say,” Kraushaar said, noting Trump could push “unfounded allegations of voter fraud” instead of boosting the two Republican senators. “Is he going to divide the Republican Party by making that argument?” Kraushaar asked. While Kraushaar noted that Georgia is fertile ground for Republican success, the party could run into problems if the base is discouraged by the false claim that American elections are rigged. “Are the fears overblown that Republicans would stay home just because President Trump says the...
    By: KDKA-TV News Staff PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – U.S. drugmaker Pfizer announced Monday that the human trials show its vaccine is 90% effective at preventing COVID-19 infections in people who never had the virus. These results came from phase 3 of trials. “Very encouraging, with a capital ‘E,'” Dr. John Mellors, Chief of Infectious Diseases at Pitt and UPMC, said of the news. He said it’s still early though: “it’s the first quarter, in football analogy.” The pharmaceutical giant says it will be applying for emergency use authorization from the FDA as final data shows the vaccine is safe. “The thing that’s most encouraging so far is that there don’t seem to be serious adverse reactions,” said Dr. John Mellors. “I’ve felt all along that vaccines would be effective, but the real question would be how often are there serious adverse effects?” Dr. Mellors anticipates a vaccine being ready by the first quarter of 2021. If the vaccine is approved, patients will have to get two shots. The second shot would come 21 days after the first....
    NEW YORK (CBS SF/AP) — From the opening bell, stocks soared on the Dow bolstered by Pfizer announcing its COVID-19 vaccine is 90% effective, and Joe Biden was projected be the winner of the presidential election over the weekend. The Dow opened up 1,600 points, or 5.6%, while the broader S&P 500 jumped 3.7%. The Nasdaq Composite also opened higher, jumping 1.3%, but the tech-heavy index is lagging behind as many tech stocks that benefited during stay-at-home orders went into reverse. Pfizer’s much-better-than-expected vaccine efficacy announcement, albeit an early look at its data, is just what Wall Street had been hoping for. The coronavirus pandemic has caused historic economic turmoil across the globe, and cases are surging to new records every day. That threatens to tip the scales and send the US economy heading in the wrong direction once again. Although the vaccine is not set to be widely administered soon, Pfizer said it plans to seek emergency use authorization from the US Food and Drug Administration soon after volunteers have been monitored for two months following their second dose...
    A game built by psychologists has been designed to teach players to sniff out 'fake news' by encouraging them to sabotage elections in a fictional town.  Cambridge University researchers created 'Breaking Harmony Square' in partnership with the US Department of State and the Department of Homeland Security.  The idea is to teach players to sniff out 'fake news' by letting them be as evil as possible and play the part of Chief Disinformation Officer in a fictional small town. Using tactics such as bots, trolling, and spreading conspiracies, the game shows how disinformation tactics work in real life by using a small town as an example. In a controlled trial involving 681 people - half playing this and half playing Tetris - 16 per cent of those playing Harmony Square said they perceived misinformation as being less reliable and 11 per cent were less likely to share it in future.  The goal of the free game, played in a web browser, is to sow as much discord as possible in the fictional town by polarizing audiences and spreading fear and...
    Most people in the F1 community were deeply disheartened when Fernando Alonso called his Formula 1 career quits. The Spaniard had dazzled everyone with his race craft for nearly 15 years, en route to winning two championships with Renault. However, the start of this year marked his return to a former team where it all started off for him. As 2021 edges closer, he is only making himself feel at home with the French team. Alonso has spoken about the drawn parallels of his career with that of Michael Schumacher’s. The fact that he has returned to F1 at the age of 39 talks volumes about his passion and determination. Fernando Alonso has confidence in the Renault car for next season Speaking in an interview, Alonso is quoted as saying, “Michael had better cars during his career. And when he came back he had a normal one, everyone was disappointed.” “In my case it could happen the other way around. I had poor cars in the last five years of my career and now it may surprise people.” said Alonso...
    The New Orleans Saints are one step closer to getting Michael Thomas back on the field, even if the wide receiver is still dealing with injuries. Pro Bowl wide receiver Michael Thomas hasn’t played for the New Orleans Saints since Week 1, hampered by an ankle injury. So any development putting him closer to the field is a positive one. On Wednesday, Thomas was suited up for practice, even if he was a limited participant. The good news? He has been cleared from the disciplinary action stemming from a fight with a teammate. He’s also one week further along in his recovery from a high ankle sprain. The concerning news? He’s now listed with a hamstring injury as well. If the latter problem is only a tweak, he could be in line to play on Sunday when the Saints take on the Carolina Panthers at the Superdome.Michael Thomas’ injury saga has been a pain for the SaintsThomas might have returned to action against the LA Chargers in Week 5, but any hopes of that were squashed when he allegedly punched...

    Justin Verlander could return soon for the Houston Astros. The Houston Astros, despite a thin starting rotation apart from Zack Greinke and a lineup that has been all over the place, are once again near the top of the American League in 2020. The Astros are still looking for that one X-factor that can help them separate from the rest of the contenders in the junior circuit, and Justin Verlander might be able to fill that role if he returns from his injury. Dusty Baker said Verlander, who was originally thought to have been lost for the season as a result of his injury, threw a bullpen yesterday and could be back with the Astros by the end of the month if everything goes as planned. Dusty Baker had no update on Justin Verlanders bullpen session from yesterday, but said "if everything goes well" Verlander "could be back at the end of this month." — Chandler Rome (@Chandler_Rome) September 10, 2020 Justin Verlander could team with Zack Greinke to jump-start the AstrosVerlander hasn’t seen the field much in 2020, as...
    Up until 68 days after falling ill with COVID-19, Yvonne Cassidy, a New York-based novelist, said she thought there were only three types of COVID: “The mild version, the version that put you in hospital and the version that killed you. I didn’t know there were others like me, stuck on a post-COVID plateau, not sick anymore, but not better either.” “I didn’t know there were others like me, stuck on a post-COVID plateau, not sick anymore, but not better either,” she said. “It turned out we were a group who had a name: We were COVID long-haulers. The Mayo Clinic and medical journals had published pieces about us. We had support groups on social media. We even had a hashtag. We were frustrated and afraid.” “With my doctor’s guidance I introduced a very slow five-minute jog into my already slow walking schedule. The first time I did it, my chest burned and I doubled over, hands on knees, gasping for breath,” Cassidy, who had toyed with training for a marathon, wrote in an essay for MarketWatch. And since Day...
    MIAMI (CBSMiami) – Miami-Dade public school students join the rest of South Florida “back to school” on Monday. The challenges of remote learning have been tough on everyone. But Thursday night there are signs that this new normal is smoothing out some rough edges. As Miami-Dade public schools get ready to embark on a virtual start to the year, Broward public schools are now a week in. “The first day of school it was confusing. We were having technical difficulties getting in. But now we’ve all settled in and it’s easier,” said Kaylee Stedman, who is in 8th grade. Stedman has been navigating the video conferencing app Microsoft Teams as well as the Canvas learning system. Her mother said it’s gone much better than last semester. “It’s been going smoothly and I think they’ve been doing a pretty good job so far,” Melanie Stedman said. “Attendance was a major thing, because some students had trouble with their internet access,” said Waldo Jude Mirambeau, a Broward teacher. He said his students have helped him to navigate the technology...
    CHARLOTTE, NORTH CAROLINA - NOVEMBER 03: A football with the NFL logo before the game between the Carolina Panthers and the Tennessee Titans at Bank of America Stadium on November 03, 2019 in Charlotte, North Carolina. (Photo by Jacob Kupferman/Getty Images) The NFL is trying to make a bubble-less season work. The NFL opened training camps last week for all 32 teams, and the NFLPA release promising results from the most recent round of COVID-19 testing. According to NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero, 56 players have tested positive so far, which is a pretty good rate considering the more than 2600 players currently participating in training camps. Pelissero also reported that less than 1 percent of all tests administered to players since testing began have been positive. Obviously, it’s still really early to be making assumptions about how the NFL season will go. Returning to training camp with minimal positives is a big first step, but traveling and competing around the country is a whole different story. Just look at the MLB, who got through preseason and then had a complete...
    Former Bush White House medical advisor Dr. Jonathan Reiner called out Vice President Mike Pence’s “sycophantic” press conference on Friday and blasted President Donald Trump’s absence from the coronavirus task force briefing, during which he tweeted about Confederate statues. During an appearance on CNN’s Erin Burnett Out Front, Reiner offered a bitter reaction to Pence’s Covid-19 briefing earlier on Friday, in which the vice president refused to wear a mask while defending high-risk indoor campaign rallies, urging “hope and prayer” to combat the pandemic, and tried to spin the current Covid-19 resurgence by citing “encouraging news.” Currently, nearly 30 states are seeing increasing coronavirus infection rates and, on Friday, the country set a new, single-day record with more than 40,000 positive cases. “He did not attend the briefing, instead he was tweeting about those Confederate monuments,” Burnett noted of the president, before turning to Reiner. “So, you know, the vice president there was talking about all the ‘encouraging news,’ again, his words’ talking about coronavirus. So, what do you make of this? And specifically the president’s refusal to be there.” “Yeah,...
