One never can tell just how serious an injury may be, and for one New York Jets quarterback, it’s a lot worse than expected. A Denver Broncos player is impatiently waiting to get back on the field, but his poor judgment could keep him away even longer. And the Seattle Seahawks are looking to beef up security and not even letting you know.
Mark Sanchez has labral tear and could be gone for the entire season
The senseless injury that New York Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez suffered in the fourth quarter of a preseason game is about to sideline him for the year. Sanchez is “likely to have surgery” on his shoulder, according to Dr. James Andrews, and that would, in turn, put him on the shelf for 2013.
Either way, surgery will need to come at some point for Sanchez. If he waits, he may end up having much worse damage and be out even longer.
Broncos coach John Fox is not pleased with Von Miller’s traffic citation
Denver linebacker Von Miller is currently serving a six-game suspension for violating the league’s substance-abuse policy, but now he’s in even more trouble. It was revealed that Miller was cited last week for speeding and driving without a license, and coach John Fox is “not happy.”
“Obviously we’re not happy about it. Everybody here has an individual responsibility, not only to themselves, but to this organization, to this football team, so it’s something we’re not pleased about. We’ll leave it at that,” Broncos coach John Fox said Wednesday.
As of now, there is no word on whether or not these latest revelations about Miller could bring about additional punishment or prolong his suspension. When Coach Fox was asked about it, he simply stated, “You’d have to ask the commissioner that.”
Seattle Seahawks to have undercover cops to weed out unruly fans
The Seattle Seahawks want to make sure that there are no unruly fans bothering others and causing problems. To do that, they are going to have undercover police officers wearing the gear of opposing teams to keep an eye out for bad seeds, and it will begin this Sunday against the San Francisco 49ers.
Ultimately, the goal of the Seahawks is to ensure a safe environment for all fans. That includes their own and the fans of visiting teams.
The undercover cops will be on the look out for and intervene for unruly behavior, verbal and “physical harassment of opposing team fans or stadium guests and staff members,” according to AP, and foul or abusive language. If anyone is asked to leave due to conduct, they will have to complete a four-hour online course, at their own cost, before being allowed back at the stadium for events
