    Jonathan Daniel/Getty Images Teven Jenkins #76 of the Chicago Bears blocks D.J. Wonnum #98 of the Minnesota Vikings on December 20, 2021. The conventional wisdom among NFL observers is that the Pittsburgh Steelers could use upgrades at both offensive tackle spots. Hence The Draft Network’s suggestion that the Steelers make a move to try to acquire 24-year-old tackle Teven Jenkins, who is currently on the trading block, as per Ian Rapoport and Mike Garafolo of NFL Network. “The Bears have received calls and have held trade talks” about him, says Rapoport. “The former 2nd round pick has drawn interest based on his potential. A situation to watch.” The #Bears have received calls and have held trade talks centered around OT Teven Jenkins, sources tell me and @MikeGarafolo.

(Photo by Justin Berl/Getty Images) Some of the best-case scenarios to replace injured St. Louis Cardinals catcher Yadier Molina aren’t so realistic but they do have several options from short-term blockbusters to longer solutions. The St. Louis Cardinals might not be with a familiar face for a long time. Age has finally caught up with Yadier Molina. A knee injury has landed him on the IL and the future isn’t so promising for the 39-year-old backstop who turns 40 in July. He’ll be out for an indefinite amount of time to rest up. What are the Cardinals going to do to fill the void? It has been a long time since they had to answer this question. Minus Molina, they are without a stalwart on the roster. Backup Andrew Knizer should see significant...
    SANTA CLARA — Nick Bosa and Deebo Samuel are expected at the 49ers’ mandatory minicamp that begins today, a positive sign that contract extensions are eventually forthcoming for the 2019 draft gems. Neither Bosa nor Samuel have taken part in the offseason program’s voluntary sessions thus far, and while the 49ers eschewed Bosa’s absence per his normal training regimen in South Florida, Samuel’s uncertain status has dominated this offseason’s news cycle. It’s believed both Bosa and Samuel passed physical exams Monday at team headquarters. NFL Network first reported their minicamp attendance today. Players not reporting to the three-day minicamp could face $93,000 in fines. Of course, the 49ers’ quarterback spot has commanded attention, too. The fact Jimmy Garoppolo has been excused from minicamp is further proof that the 49ers are determined to move forward with Trey Lance as their starter and Garoppolo as trade bait, once his surgically repaired shoulder proves healthy. In not acquiescing to Samuel’s trade request prior to the draft on April 28, coach Kyle Shanahan said the 49ers did not draw a bid remotely worthy of...
    Getty Brandon Jones has plans to get in a Cup Series car. Joe Gibbs Racing’s Brandon Jones is in the midst of the 2022 Xfinity Series season, and he has the goal of winning a championship. He has also revealed his best-case scenario for a potential move to the NASCAR Cup Series. Jones spoke to Heavy ahead of the trip to Portland International Raceway, and he laid out what he considers to be a solid path to the top level of NASCAR. He explained that he would ideally make a part-time move first to get acclimated to the Next Gen cars before taking on a full-time schedule. “I mean, my long-term goal is to eventually get to that Cup level, some way or the other,” Jones told Heavy. “And so I’ve always said, if it’s possible, the best-case scenario, you go make maybe five races a year. If you’re able to do Xfinity or something, you’re able to go run a couple Cup races before you just dig headfirst into it. “I think that would be kind of...
    It’s always dangerous to get conclusive about a draft class before the picks are called, let alone before the players step on the court, but the preliminary consensus among scouts and experts is that 2022 is top heavy. Specifically, there are four players that sit as the cream. So for the Knicks, who enter the draft lottery at No. 11, the drawing of Ping Pong balls Tuesday night in Chicago is consequential. Potentially franchise altering. There is a decent enough chance for them to crack the top-4 (9.4%) to pay attention, and the reaction of the always demonstrative William Wesley, who is sitting for the Knicks on the dais, will be worth a view regardless of the outcome. And if the Knicks’ lottery luck changes and the franchise moves up in the lottery for the first time since 1985, here’s a breakdown of the four prospective rewards (we’re ignoring that the team could also use such a lucrative pick to trade for a star.

Outside of USC quarterback Caleb Williams, who are some names who might surprise this fall? — @boscpenn83 The lack of star power has been a significant issue for the conference, along with the dearth of playoff bids.

But the Cincinnati Bengals would be the better AFC team for the 2022 Super Bowl among the remaining National Football League playoff teams, at least for Best Buy. Loop Capital Markets, in a note to clients this week, tried to determine which Super Bowl LVI matchup would drive the most sales of new TVs and home theaters at the retailer. It concluded a Cincinnati Bengals versus Los Angeles Rams matchup would benefit the retailer most. Loop Capital used "metropolitan statistical area" metrics to assist in determining the population size of a city and surrounding counties. The MSA for Cincinnati and Los Angeles is 15.5 million, combined. The clubs' combined 36 years since they last appeared in a Super Bowl – 33 of those years belonging to the Bengals' absence – would also favor potential sales, Loop said. The...
    Dr. Anthony Fauci outlined a path toward a long-term plan to live with COVID-19, claiming it's the "best-case scenario."  The president’s chief medical advisor predicted this week the current surge of cases caused by the omicron variant will peak by mid-February, leaving officials wondering what happens next.  Fauci said on ABC’s "This Week" that the best-case scenario will be to bring the virus under control and learn to live with it.  Dr. Anthony Fauci, White House chief medical advisor and director of the NIAID, and Dr. Rochelle Walensky, director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, arrive to participate in the White House COVID-19 Response Team's regular call with the National Governors Association in the South Court Auditorium in the Eisenhower Executive Office Building on the White House campus Dec. 27, 2021, in Washington.

    Getty Odell Beckham Jr. After OBJ’s dad took to social media to point out Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield’s reluctance to throw his son the ball, the drama level was raised and ultimately, the club asked the former Pro-Bowler to stay away from the team. With the trade deadline past, a deal is no longer an option, so there is talk of the Browns potentially releasing the receiver. If that happens, there would likely be interest in the WR who turns 30 on November 5. ALL the latest Patriots news straight to your inbox! Join the Heavy on Patriots newsletter here! Join Heavy on Patriots! The Patriots should now be hunting for a high-end wideout to augment Jones’ development. Head coach Bill Belichick did well overhauling both the tight end room and receiving corps in free agency—bringing in Hunter Henry, Jonnu Smith, Nelson Agholor and Kendrick Bourne—but the offense still lacks a true No. 1 wideout. Bringing in Beckham could change that immediately, providing Jones with a playmaker capable of taking over with his speed, athleticism and...

    Getty D'Andre Swift celebrates after a 2020 touchdown in Atlanta. The Detroit Lions aren’t expected to have much of a successful year on the field in 2021, but like any season, there is still a potential road map to the team winning. Clearly, the Lions would have to have a lot of things go their way in order to have what folks would deem a semi-successful season, but exactly what would have to come together for that to occur? Plenty of things on both the offense and defense it turns out. The latest Lions news straight to your inbox! Join the Heavy on Lions newsletter here! Join Heavy on Lions! Pro Football Focus put together their best and worst case scenario outlines for every NFC team, and when it came to the Lions, writer Ben Linsey explained that the team’s best-case scenario still isn’t all that great at an 8-9 record.

    US will provide arsenal of vaccines for world; Anheuser-Busch offers to buy Americas next round: Live COVID-19 updates Democrats fear health care 2009 déjà vu as Biden-GOP infrastructure talks drag Last season's rookie running back class set the bar so high that there's almost no way the 2021 class can touch it. Sure, only one back ended up topping 1,000 rushing yards, but down the stretch, James Robinson, Jonathan Taylor, J.K. Dobbins, Antonio Gibson, Cam Akers, and D'Andre Swift were all must-start players, and Clyde Edwards-Helaire might have been if he hadn't gotten hurt.  And expectations are very, very high for that group in 2021. If we're talking about the running back position being in a better place than it has been in recent memory for Fantasy, it's because so much is expected of this group.  In NFC ADP right now, Taylor is a top-six pick overall on average, while Akers and Swift are both top-12 RBs. Gibson and Dobbins are top-15 backs, and Edwards-Helaire comes in 17th -- Robinson is slipping down draft boards since the NFL Draft,...
    New York Giants: Best case scenario for Kelvin Benjamin could be fruitful Alexander Wilson May 21, 2021 ShareTweetFlipRedditThe New York Giants signed Kelvin Benjamin after a tryout last weekend, and while he most likely is just a camp body as the Giants filter out the roster, there is some upside that could be fruitful. Benjamin has been out of the NFL for the past two years and is currently 30 years old, which likely indicates his best days are behind him. Benjamin last played in 2018 with the Buffalo Bills and Kansas City Chiefs, tallying 380 yards and one touchdown. His lone score was Josh Allen’s first touchdown in the NFL, but most don’t remember that Kelvin played a part. Benjamin was drafted back in 2014 by current New York Giants general manager Dave Gettleman. The former 28th overall pick was impactful for his first two seasons, recording 1,008 yards and nine scores in 2014 at 23 years old. A year later, he recorded 941 yards and seven scores, seeing a...
     AN inmate at the jail where Derek Chauvin is being held thinks the best-case scenario for the convicted former Minneapolis cop is that he's "beaten up a lot". Hannabal Shaddai, who is serving a life sentence at Minnesota Correctional Facility, doesn’t believe George Floyd’s killer is safe among the prison population because of his former profession and the nature of the crime. 8Hannabal Shaddai, who is serving a life sentence, doesn't think Derek Chauvin will be 'safe' among the prison population 8Shaddai thinks the best thing that could happen to convicted former police officer Derek Chauvin (pictured) is that 'he's beaten up a lot'Credit: AP Shaddai, 45, claims he doesn't seek revenge but believes Chauvin wouldn't be safe as violence occurs regularly at the maximum-security prison in Oak Park Heights.

    The Kansas City Chiefs have many options with their No. 31 overall pick in the 2021 NFL Draft. With the No. 31 overall pick in the upcoming 2021 NFL Draft, the defending AFC champion Kansas City Chiefs could end up with one of several players with that first-round selection. Since Kansas City used its No. 32 pick last year on a luxury item in former LSU standout running back Clyde Edwards-Helaire, we are largely expecting the Chiefs to address a primary need with this year’s top-32 pick. Given how Super Bowl 55 went, one would think an offensive tackle would be the biggest position group of need. They can also go with a pass rusher or a wide receiver here.Kansas City Chiefs: Who are the best and worst outcomes for them at No. 31?Alright. Let’s look at all three position groups and who could potentially go to the Chiefs at No. 31. If we are looking at offensive tackle, the best-case scenario would be if Teven Jenkins falls to them at the end of the first round out of Oklahoma State. Guys like...
    Mike Tomlin’s team needs to upgrade the offensive line and the running game and that would be a change in recent first-round philosophy. Mike Tomlin’s team won the AFC North in 2020 but hardly looked like a division champion by season’s end. A suspect 11-0 start was followed up by a 1-5 finish, the last of those losses in the playoffs at home vs. the Browns. The Pittsburgh Steelers own the 24th overall pick on April 29. How could it all play out? Best-case scenarioIt’s hard to believe that the team has ranked 31st, 29th and last in the NFL in the league in rushing, respectively, the past three seasons. The ground game has seemingly been an afterthought in recent years and that was regardless of whether quarterback Ben Roethlisberger has been on the field or not. Hence, the clubs parted ways with offensive coordinator Randy Fichtner and elevated quarterbacks coach Matt Canada (who joined the team in 2020) to his spot. Running back and tackle are big needs for this club. Gutty but injury-prone James Conner didn’t figure to...
    As Matt Carpenter finds a new role with the St. Louis Cardinals, what is his best-case scenario for the coming season? The shortened 2020 MLB season was a tough one for a lot of players, and Matt Carpenter was among them. Over 50 games (169 plate appearances), he hit just .186/.325/.314 with four home runs, 24 RBI and 10 extra base hits. Then the Cardinals went and traded for Nolan Arenado, moving Carpenter off his starting spot at third base. For the Cardinals, the reverse looks to be the best-case scenario in order to field their best lineup. Next: Yu Darvish has intimidating name for his slider    
    The 25 greatest stand-up comedians of all time The 29 Biggest Car Mistakes That Will Cost You There is no bright side to the car accident that Tiger Woods was involved in on Tuesday aside from the obvious one: he is alive. The front portion of the SUV Tiger was driving was crushed, and according to a statement put out late Tuesday night by the Tiger Woods Foundation, the 15-time major winner sustained several severe injuries to his right leg. © Provided by Golfweek “Comminuted open fractures affecting both the upper and lower portion of the tibia and fibula bones were stabilized by inserting a rod into the tibia,” the statement revealed. “Additional injuries to the bones of the foot and ankle were stabilized with a combination of screws and pins. Trauma to the muscle and soft-tissue of the leg required surgical release of the covering of the muscles to relieve pressure due to swelling.” As of Wednesday, Woods was recovering at Harbor-UCLA Medical Center in Los Angeles. We do not know if Tiger will require more surgeries, how...
    Getty Ja'Marr Chase flexes while playing Clemson. The Detroit Lions are beginning to think about their future moves to help the offseason plan, and quite possibly the biggest involves making a decision on what part of the team to upgrade first. With limited amounts of money, it’s likely the Lions won’t make a huge free agency splurge barring any major cuts on the horizon. Instead, the team will likely be figuring out who best to target during the draft. With needs on both offense and defense, there’s a temptation to say that either spot is the bigger need for help. According to Pro Football Focus, the answer is on offense, and specifically at the spot of wide receiver. In a best-case, worst-case scenario post on the site, writer Anthony Treash thinks the best-case is Detroit adding a wideout while the worst-case is the team ignoring that spot to draft defense high. He wrote: “Detroit has been home to some of the better wide receiver units over the past few years, but that could come to a screeching halt...
    LONDON hospitals are days away from being overwhelmed by Covid in the best case scenario, new reports claim.  NHS England’s London medical director Vin Diwakar revealed the capital's hospitals could run out of beds by January 19. ⚠️ Read our coronavirus live blog for the latest news & updates 5London's hospitals could be overwhelmed in a fortnight, even in a best case scenario Dr Diwakar delivered the bleak news to London's hospital trust directors via a zoom call yesterday, according to medical journal HSJ.  In the "official briefing", three possible outcomes were discussed. Even if Covid hospital admissions grew at the lowest estimated rate, London's hospitals would be short of almost 2,000 general and acute (G&A) and intensive care beds by 19 January.   But in any scenario, there is the potential for bed shortages in a matter of days. The “best” scenario detailed a four per cent daily growth in hospital admissions; “average” predicted a five per cent daily growth; and the “worse” scenario prepared for a staggering six per cent daily jump in London Covid patients.  On January 5, hospital admissions...

Much like the Houston Rockets are trying to keep James Harden happy with the John Wall trade, so too are the Washington Wizards hoping to satisfy Bradley Beal by adding Russell Westbrook to their backcourt. The situation is much less dire in D.C.; Beal, while admittedly a star, is not a perennial MVP candidate searching for his first title before his prime is over. Beal also isn’t seeking a trade to the Brooklyn Nets. Even in a top-heavy conference, that could be enough to doom Washington’s playoff hopes. Barring catastrophic injuries, the Bucks, Raptors, Celtics, Heat, Pacers, Sixers and Nets all figure to be playoff teams. That’s seven spots right there. All it takes is one unexpected team like the Magic, Bulls or Hawks to cast a pall on Washington’s already gloomy outlook. If the Wizards miss the postseason in 2021, after trading away a beloved D.C. icon like Wall, Beal would only...
    The Whiteboard is The Step Back’s daily basketball newsletter, covering the NBA, WNBA and more. Subscribe here to get it delivered to you via email each morning. The Houston Rockets traded Russell Westbrook to the Washington Wizards for John Wall on Wednesday night, in classic case of “hateable on the surface but actually makes sense when you think about it.” Cousins fades into the 2021 free agency background as yet another remarkable NBA career ruined by injury (and the Sacramento Kings). Wall remains on the books for the next two years, eating up a whopping $44.3 million and $47.4 million in salary over that stretch. Tucker jets in 2021 as a free agent, Wood puts up big numbers but doesn’t really impact winning on a bad Rockets squad, and Eric Gordon continues to struggle with injuries while making $16.9 million, $18.2 million and $19.6 million over the next three years. Getting their hands on a rising two-way star like LeVert is a win for the Rockets, but their hopes for contending in the future rely on drafting another superstar and...

    The NBA Draft is Wednesday. Yes, Wednesday. Can you believe it? And before the craziness gets underway, sports columnist Dieter Kurtenbach and Wes Goldberg discussed what the best-case scenario is for the Warriors on draft day. Dieter Kurtenbach: We’ve been doing this for what? Seven-and-a-half years now. It feels like it’s been seven-and-a-half years. Wes Goldberg: It’s literally been since last December that I’ve been writing about this draft when it was pretty clear that the Warriors would be picking at the top of it. The amount of times that I’ve heard, ‘it’s not a strong draft.’ I get it. I’m aware. I may be more aware than anybody else other than the Warriors. But I am so ready. DK: So the question today gets down to brass tacks. What is the best-case scenario for the Warriors on draft day? I’m happy to set a tone here: I think the Warriors would be well-served to get Anthony Edwards (wing, Georgia) with the No. 2 overall pick. But the best-case scenario for the...
    Michigan couple on honeymoon shelters in hotel lobby as Hurricane Delta slams Mexico Pandemic accelerated an already booming market for personal chefs Paul Felder: If Mike Perry gets Darren Till in his corner it might be the best case scenario for him ABU DHABI – Paul Felder thinks Mike Perry would actually benefit from having Darren Till in his corner. © Provided by MMAJunkie Perry (14-6 MMA, 7-6 UFC) startled the MMA community this week when he announced plans to auction off a spot in his corner for his upcoming fight against Robbie Lawler at UFC 255. Things got even crazier when Till, a longtime rival of “Platinum,” threw his name in the hat. Till initially offered Perry $5,000, then started a GoFundMe so fans can help contribute and raise money. Although Till is known for his banter, Felder echoes fellow analyst Dan Hardy’s opinion, and thinks that Till would certainly give him better advice than a random fan. “Ultimately it’s up to him and it’s up to the fighter,” Felder told reporters, including MMA Junkie, on Wednesday. “Whoever they...
    Getty Leighton Vander Esch For the Dallas Cowboys and ailing linebacker Leighton Vander Esch, relatively speaking, this is as good as it was going to get. NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport reported Monday that Vander Esch “cleanly” broke his collarbone in Sunday’s loss to the Los Angeles Rams. He will undergo reparative surgery and is expected to return to the field in roughly 6-8 weeks. “Probably best-case scenario for the #Cowboys,” Rapoport tweeted. In a radio interview Monday, Cowboys vice president Stephen Jones confirmed LVE will be moved to injured reserve until he’s healed. Vander Esch was injured in the first quarter of Dallas’ regular season-opener and quickly ruled out for the remainder of the contest. He made three tackles before exiting. The team’s 2018 first-round pick, Vander Esch is central to the Cowboys’ defense, a true three-down ‘backer. But he’s also officially injury-prone, having missed seven games in 2019 following a career-threatening bout of spinal stenosis and subsequent neck surgery, from which he fully recovered. “I know how it feels to be injured, to suffer an injury,” Cowboys...
    New York Giants: Best & Worst Case Scenarios For The 2020 Season By: Anthony Rivardo September 1, 2020 ShareTweet0 SharesFootball is almost here. The 2020 NFL season is set to kick off in just a little over a week from today. The New York Giants are entering the new season with a brand new coaching staff and a revamped roster. Much has been said about the Giants’ offseason moves. They put a heavy emphasis on the defensive secondary and offensive line, but there were other positions they did not address with as much priority. Regardless of the team’s roster-building strategies, there are two ways that this season can go: good or bad. But what does good and bad look like for the 2020 New York Giants? Best-Case Scenarios (GOOD) Obviously, the best-case scenario for any NFL team is to win the Super Bowl. But, realistically, the Giants are not likely to get that far, coming off of a 4-12 season with a new coaching staff implementing new schemes in the middle...
    Even immediate efforts to reduce plastic pollution could leave Earth with 698 million tons (710 million metric tonnes) of waste by 2040, scientists estimate.  Immediate and globally coordinated action to limit plastic consumption and waste could reduce the rate of plastic pollution by nearly 80 per cent by 2040. However, even if such a 'best-case scenario' came to pass, 698 million tons will find its way into the environment by 2040 – 452 million on land and 246 million in watercourses.  And an even more shocking amount – 1.27 billion tons – of plastic will be dumped on land and in oceans up to 2040 without substantial and meaningful policy action. The figures are from 17 global experts who have developed a computer model to track the stocks and flows of plastic around the world.   1.27 billion tons of plastic will be dumped on land and in the oceans over the period from 2016 to 2040 unless the world acts, say a team of 17 global experts who have developed a computer model to track the stocks and flows...
    The college football season is still to be determined heading into August, and the uncertainty lingers across the landscape.   Still, there is a prevailing sentiment that the 2020 college football season could happen. FOX Sports analyst Urban Meyer is one of those voices that is holding on to some optimism.   “I didn’t say every conference is going to play. I didn’t say every team is going to play,” Meyer said last week. “I said we’re going to play college football. I really believe that conferences, presidents, ADs and the commissioners are going to work together with the head coaches, and they’re going to work this thing out.”  MORE: Which conferences have canceled their 2020 season?

    Bryce Dallas Howard thought she was making a comedy. She quickly learned, however, that when men talk about their fathers and fathers talk about their children, they cry. A lot.  In Dads, the documentary that the actress, whose career has traveled from The Village to Jurassic World, directed about modern fathering around the globe, Judd Apatow cries. Will Smith cries. Jimmy Fallon cries. The men from around the world she interviews about their own experience raising children cry.
