After Matthews was injured during Fridays practice in a collision with rookie cornerback Jalen Mills, Pederson thought the injury was more serious.It looked bad on tape when I watched it, Pederson said Tuesday. It looked worse than what I initially thought out here on the field. Now its definitely day-to-day. Theres no structure damage in there, which is definitely pleasing. On tape, it looks like it could have been.Matthews and tight end Zach Ertz were injured a few plays apart during Fridays practice. Mills hit Matthews in his knee and Ertz was upended by rookie safety Blake Countess. Ertz was evaluated for a concussion but was cleared by team doctors.After practice, Ertz said the team needed to emphasize the need to be protective of teammates even while young players were hitting in live drills in their effort to make the team.Pederson said he would continue to have live drills in practice, something the Eagles did not do under Chip Kelly for the past three seasons.

Lack made 20 saves for his third shutout of the season as the Canucks blanked the St. Louis Blues 1-0 in the first post-Olympic game for both teams night. http://www.thedallasstarshockey.com/brett-hull-hockey-jersey/ . -- Gus Malzahn finally had his day in Fayetteville. ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- Many things have gone wrong in the Rays losing 17 of their last 20 games, but manager Kevin Cash took a rare step Tuesday, pulling outfielder Steven Souza after he didnt run out of the box on a routine fly to center that ended up dropping between two outfielders.Souza made it to third and scored later, but the message was sent that Cash isnt tolerating any dropoff in effort, even from players known for their energy.I think the bottom line is that I play hard, but right there I didnt play very hard, Souza said. I got caught slipping and took for granted a routine play. I basically wore a triple for it and I got to third, but I could have easily scored if I was running hard.Cash declined to address the issue after the game, saying there are issues that happen in a team that we address in-house. Well keep it in-house and well move on from there.The Rays struggles havent been limited to any one part of their team -- their starting pitching has consistently failed to get beyond the fifth and sixth innings, and their bullpen has been terrible in the past three weeks, allowing runs in 18 of the last 20 games.In the ninth inning of the last six games alone, the Rays have given up 19 runs, this after allowing a total of 23 runs in the ninth inning of the first 77 games.Wednesdays game offers two struggling starters with ERAs over 5.00 -- Los Angeles right-hander Jered Weaver is 6-7 with a 5.51 ERA, and Rays left-hander Drew Smyly is 2-9 with a 5.53 ERA, so it could be another high-scoring affair after seeing the two teams combine for 30 hits in Tuesdays game.As rough as the first eight innings were, the Rays were down just 7-5 entering the ninth, seeing closer Alex Colome come back off the disabled list with a scoreless ninth. Enny Romero faced three batters and allowed all three to score on C.J. Crons three-run home run, and then Dana Eveland replaced him and gave up four hitts for three more runs. Stephen Johns Stars Jersey. .In the other dugout, the Angels, whose victory over the Rays Tuesday was just their third win in 15 games, were thrilled to show the depth of their lineup for once, with Mike Trout getting a rare day out of the starting lineup and Albert Pujols a quiet 1-for-6 on the night. The rest of the batting order came through for 15 hits, including a pair of homers and four RBI from first baseman C.J. Cron, something manager Mike Scioscia was happy to see.We need our lineup to get deeper, particularly the guys that are going to hit right after Mike and Albert, Scioscia said, talking about players like Cron and Jefry Marte. The 5-6 hole for us is really important. Hopefully with C.J. getting comfortable, and Marte has thunder in his bat. Hopefully well start getting a little deeper.As rough as the first eight innings were, the Rays were down just 7-5 entering the ninth, seeing closer Alex Colome come back off the disabled list with a scoreless ninth.
