    When cornerback Jaylon Johnson reached the end of the Chicago Bears offseason program in June, he knew exactly what this new era at Halas Hall is supposed to be about. The feeling-out process with the coaching staff had progressed, and players had a clear understanding of their bosses’ demands. Coach Matt Eberflus had made it a point since the spring to set a tone, later asking his veteran leaders to demonstrate how he wanted his teams to practice and play. So by the time Johnson pulled back up Football Drive in Lake Forest for the start of training camp, he understood Eberflus’ approach. “It really kind of takes things back to the fundamentals and just playing football hard and playing football the right way,” Johnson said. “I thought (the coaches) established a good sense of tough-nosed football. And I wouldn’t say our last staff didn’t. I just think (this staff’s) emphasis is a lot more.” For Eberflus, there’s a way winning football is meant to be played — at full speed and with maximum effort at all times. That philosophy...
    Like all NHL teams, the Chicago Blackhawks send out daily medical updates about players’ injuries. Defenseman Calvin de Haan and goaltender Marc-André Fleury, for instance, were excused from practice earlier this week for “maintenance.” This can be general soreness or just a mental break for a player to get his body and mind in tune for upcoming games. Pro sports seasons are a long grind, and finding a way to keep athletes mentally and physically prepared is an ongoing struggle. The days of Cal Ripken Jr. shrugging off aches and pains to keep his consecutive games streak alive are ancient history. And with recent changes in attitudes regarding the importance of maintaining one’s mental health, particularly during the COVID-19 pandemic, no one needs to apologize for taking time off to recharge. But players aren’t the only ones in dire need of a break. Fans could use a maintenance day, or perhaps even a week, to help us deal with the current goings-on in the world of sports. We can start with a moratorium on Phil Mickelson, the golfer who decided...
    As Covid ravages through sports leagues despite high rates of vaccination, NBA commissioner Adam Silver says the league has no current plans to pause the season. American sports leagues have taken very different approaches to combatting the virus. The NHL recently announced all games would be paused through at least Dec. 26 and the NFL implemented new Covid protocols that include drastically less testing of vaccinated players. “No plans right now to pause the season,” Silver told ESPN’s Malika Andrews on NBA Today. “We have of course looked at all the options, but frankly we are having trouble coming up with what the logic would be behind pausing right now.” “As we look through these cases literally ripping through the country, let alone the rest of the world, I think we’re finding ourselves where we sort of knew we were going to get to over the past several months, and that is this virus will not be eradicated, and we’re going to have to learn to live with it. I think that’s what we’re experiencing in the league right now.”...

Flores said on Monday that “there’s always some form of distraction” for teams to deal with while referencing the speculation about their interest in Watson and he also spoke generally about what the team is looking for when they consider adding players to the team. “There are a lot of things we weigh when we’re making decisions — fit on the team, overall talent, salary cap,” Flores said, via the Associated Press. “When we’re talking about a player or players, we’re always trying to do what is best for the Miami Dolphins. There are a lot of variables. We want a group that is tough, smart, competitive, loves to play and is team first....

    (CNN)It's the modern day equivalent of the Roman Empire's gladiatorial shows. After playing for several hours, often in hot and humid conditions, with their emotional reserves ebbing and stress levels sky rocketing, tennis stars enter the media's ice cold inner sanctum -- the post-match press conference.And Naomi Osaka has had enough. She has faced down countless opponents on her stratospheric rise to the top of tennis, but this week the world's No. 2 put down her racket and walked away from the probing and prodding of the press.Osaka's decision to withdraw from the French Open, rather than participate in media conferences at Roland Garros, has sparked a wider debate about the culture of post-match briefings and their impact on athletes' mental health.Such media conferences are a "vulture's pit," said Kris Soutar a consultant for Tennis Scotland and the Judy Murray Foundation, founded by the mother of Andy Murray, a player who has talked openly about how the mental toll of elite sport has affected him.These often male-dominated press conferences are hugely intimidating for the losing player, Soutar told CNN.

On a Saturday afternoon in mid-April, a few weeks after he was traded to the Nuggets, Aaron Gordon sat in the hotel room he was temporarily living out of and reflected on the most challenging season NBA players had ever dealt with.

Meanwhile, their bodies were being ground down by the compressed 72-game schedule. The physical injuries potentially caused by such a grueling endeavor have received ample attention; no shortage of media hands have been wrung over...

    CHICAGO (CBS) — Super Bowl LV is in the books, Tom Brady and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers have won – and with that, the most challenging season is over. Despite the pandemic, not a single game in the most physical sport of football had to be canceled. So what can we all learn? As CBS 2’s Jim Williams reported, the NFL pulled off its season amid the pandemic with a million COVID tests, contact tracing, and cooperative players who did their part to stop the spread. It may come as a surprise that football could be made safe – with those collisions and all that spitting and face-to-face activity. “there were many skeptics at the beginning of the season, myself included, didn’t know how they pull it off,” said Dr. Robert Dr Citronberg of Advocate Aurora Health. “But what they did successfully is they applied science.” The league tested players and staff for the coronavirus daily during the regular season, except game day. If someone tested positive, they needed to find out whom they’d been around – what’s called contact...
