Mike Smith rejoins Flames for practice but unsure of return to game action

With the Flames slipping out of playoff contention, goalie Mike Smith would prefer nothing more than to be back in net for Calgary’s next game, at Buffalo.

Knowing that’s not in the cards, Smith settled on accepting the next step in recovering from a lower body injury by practicing with the Flames for the first time in nearly a month on Tuesday.

“It’s the worst feeling as a guy who wants to be in there every game and wants to help the team win,” Smith said after taking part in an optional practice a day before Calgary plays the Sabres.

“A piece of you feels like you’re letting the team down by sitting there and watching,” he added. “That’s the sucky part of the position and the sport. But that’s part of the deal. So you’ve got to deal with it.”

The Flames could use any type of boost after having gone 0-3-1 in their past four following a 4-3 overtime loss at Pittsburgh on Monday. And they’re 3-6-2 while allowing 40 goals in 11 games since Smith was hurt.

While it’s natural to assume that the weight gain might put a strain on Myers’ legs, he’s more concerned about the state of his throwing arm.

Dave Roberts, now the Dodgers’ manager, tutored Myers on the art of center-field play in 2015. Now Padres coach Skip Schumaker is overseeing his transition to right. Myers, who can be searingly candid in interviews, concedes that boredom and inactivity in the outfield are a Cheap Barcelona Jerseys potential issue Cheap Authentic Baseball Jerseys after being in the middle of the action at first base.

100 players to know for the 2018 NFL Draft

Well maybe not that OK. With the Colts’ 2017 opener — a road game against the Rams — days away, the team made a trade over the weekend that sent 2015 first-round pick Phillip Dorsett to the New England Patriots for quarterback Jacoby Brissett.

The Titans ranked second last season in my “good blocking rate” metric that measures how often an offensive blocking wall gives its ball carriers quality run blocking. Oakland’s defense finished last in that same metric, so Murray should get a high volume of huge gaps to run through against the Silver and Black defense. — KC Joyner

The New York Jets don’t plan to be a contender in 2017. The moves the franchise has made during the offseason have made it abundantly clear the team doesn’t consider itself a winner right now.

It’s also a realistic approach by the Jets following a 5-11 season where they had the No. 30 scoring offense and the No. 28 defense. The team could have dug in its heels and gone after high-priced free agents, but that probably wouldn’t have helped much. So the Jets did the opposite.

Tyrod Taylor: The Bills QB went to the locker room early in the first quarter after being sacked and hitting his head pretty hard on the ground. He’s in the concussion protocol.
