m stacks up against top-level competition. This was the programs first game against a No. 1 ranked team

Former linebacker DeMeco Ryans filed a lawsuit against the NFL and Houston Texans, seeking more than $10 million in damages because an Achilles tendon injury he suffered due to the playing surface at NRG Stadium in 2014 effectively ended his NFL career. Jeff Carter Jersey .The lawsuit, filed Friday in Harris County (Texas) District Court, also names Harris County Convention Sports Corp., SMG, which manages NRG Stadium, and StrathAyr Turf Systems as defendants.The lawsuit states that because of the playing surface at NRG Stadium on Nov. 2, 2014, Ryans suffered a torn Achilles tendon that prematurely ended his noteworthy NFL career as without the injury he would have in reasonable probability, remained in the league for another five years.The Texans told ESPN they would not comment on current litigation.Ryans was placed on injured reserve in 2014 following his injury, which happened on a noncontact play. He played 14 games for the Eagles in 2015 but wasnt as effective following his injury and was released by the team last February and went unsigned as a free agent.At the time of Ryans injury, the Texans were playing on a grass field where modules of grass created by StrathAyr Turf Systems were grown outside the stadium and then placed by forklift onto the playing surface. The Texans switched to AstroTurf in Week 3 last season and are playing on artificial turf again this season.The lawsuit states that, on Nov. 2, 2014, there were points where the seams between the Modules intersected appeared to look like holes filled in with sand. The surface of the field was also inconsistent as some of the Modules were soft, some were firm and the Modules did not fit together well.The lawsuit cites widespread complaints by NFL players about the playing surface at NRG Field and significant noncontact injuries caused by the field that should have prompted the Texans to change the playing surface before the Nov. 2, 2014, game.Then-New England Patriots wide receiver Wes Welker suffered a knee injury in January 2010, but because he played for the opposition, the Texans management and owners did not really care, the lawsuit states.Then-Texans punter Brett Hartmann suffered a knee injury in 2011 that ended his career, but the lawsuit states that to the Texans, Brett Harmann was just a punter, and because he had not been in the league for long, the Texans and the NFL didnt really care about what happened to him.The lawsuit says that it wasnt until Texans linebacker Jadeveon Clowney, taken by the team with the No. 1 overall pick in the 2014 draft, suffered a knee injury in his first NFL game that limited him to four games in his rookie season, that the team cared about the situation. Then-teammate D.J. Swearinger told NFL media at the time that Clowney told him he was injured after he landed on a hole in the turf.Then, and only then, was it time for Defendants to fix the problem, the lawsuit states.Contacted by ESPN, the Texans said they do not comment on pending litigation., which first reported on the lawsuit, reported the NFL had no comment when contacted about the case.Ryans, a second-round pick by Houston in 2006, spent six seasons with the Texans before he was traded to the Eagles in 2012. He was selected for the Pro Bowl twice.ESPNs Sarah Barshop contributed to this report. Jean Beliveau Jersey . Uniteds eighth defeat of a wretched campaign means Liverpool, which currently occupies the fourth and final Champions League place, could go nine points clear of its fierce rival by beating West Bromwich Albion on Sunday. Charlie Adam scored both of Stokes goals at Britannia Stadium either side of Robin van Persies equalizer, with a miserable day for seventh-place United capped by first-half injuries to centre halves Jonny Evans and Phil Jones that forced them off. Maurice Richard Jersey . Deulofeu injured a muscle in his right leg in Evertons 4-1 win over Fulham in the English Premier League on Saturday. Barcelona says that its team doctors will "co-ordinate" with Evertons medical staff as Deulofeu recovers. . The defence is doing its part, too. Drew Brees threw a pair of touchdown passes in the first half and the guys on the other side made sure that was enough, sending the Saints to a 17-13 victory over the Atlanta Falcons on Thursday night. UNCASVILLE, Conn. -- Top-ranked Duke bounced back from its loss to Kansas by beating Penn State, but watched another player go down with an injury.Freshman Frank Jackson led five players in double figures with 17 points and Amile Jefferson added 16 points and 15 rebounds to lead the Blue Devils to a 78-68 win Saturday in the Hall of Fame Tip-Off tournament.Sophomore Chase Jeter rolled his left ankle in the first half and didnt return.Tony Carr had 20 points and Shep Garner added 15 to lead Penn State (2-2).Jeter went down under the Penn State basket while going for a rebound. The 6-foot-10 sophomore was on the floor for several minutes before being helped off the court. His injury came minutes after Grayson Allen left the game, favoring the right foot he hurt in Tuesdays loss to Kansas.Allen went back to the locker room, but returned to the floor a few minutes later. He finished with 12 points and needs just three more to become the 65th Duke player with 1,000 points for his career.Matt Jones and Luke Kennard added 15 points each for Duke, which will play No. 21 Rhode Island for the tournament championship on Sunday.Were banged up more than any team Ive ever coached, said Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski. Before the game and then during the game. I mean, Amile has been hurt this week. He has 15 rebounds and 16 points.Despite the injuries, the Blue Devils went on an early 13-2 run that turned a tie game into a 21-10 lead. They led 36-24 at the half, despite some poor shooting from Allen and Kennard, who were a combined 4-15 from the floor. But Jackson picked up the slack, scoring 11 of his points before intermission.To be able to have the next man up, coach does a good job motivating us, Jones said. We didnt come to Duke to lose, be second fiddle or bow down to anybody. We know what were capable of and everyone on that sideline can help. That confidence that is instilled in us, takes us to where we need to go.A 3-point play by Allen stretched the lead to 64-51 midway through the second half.Penn State trailed 72-57 with just under 5 minutes to play, but went on a 9-2 run before the Blue Devils closed out the game. Patrick Marleau Jersey. Dukes short bench outscored Penn States 19-5.BIG PICTUREDuke: Jeters injury further depletes a Blue Devils team that is still without three highly touted freshmen -- Harry Giles, Jayson Tatum and Marques Bolden -- as well as junior Sean Obi. They may have just seven players available for Sundays championship game. Krzyzewski pegged Jeters status for the game as doubtful.I know if he can play, he will play, Krzyzewski said. Were going to try and win. We would like to win.Penn State: The Nittany Lions are using the tournament as a measuring stick to see how the young team stacks up against top-level competition. This was the programs first game against a No. 1 ranked team since 2011, and theyre now 0-14 in those games.We took another step today, said coach Patrick Chambers. We got better. And thats our goal Just keep getting better. Its a process thats going to take some time, but were going to eventually get there.POLL IMPLICATIONSDuke was No. 1 in the preseason poll and the first voting of the regular season, but likely will fall a few spots after its loss to Kansas. How far may depend on how they do in this tournament.PERIMETER DEFENSEDuke held Penn State to six 3-point baskets on 21 attempts. Thats not a fluke. The Blue Devils held their first three opponents under 15 percent from the outside and were giving up fewer than three 3-pointers a game coming into the tournament. Duke was 9 for 24 from 3-point range.UP NEXTDuke will play No. 21 Rhode Island in the tournaments championship game Sunday afternoon. The Rams beat No. 24 Cincinnati 76-71 in the second game of the evening.Penn State will play Cincinnati tournaments consolation game.----More AP college basketball: and Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
