Subiect: for the seventh time in
PITTSBURGH -- The Pittsburgh Steelers bolstered their injury-plagued backfield on Friday, acquiring running back Felix Jones from Philadelphia for linebacker Adrian Robinson. The deal is pending each player passing a physical. The 26-year-old Jones gives the Steelers needed depth at running back. Rookie LeVeon Bell is out with a sprained right foot and is out indefinitely. Isaac Redman is dealing with a nerve injury and return specialist LaRod Stephens-Howling sat out last Mondays preseason game against Washington with a sprained knee. Jones was the 22nd overall pick in the 2008 NFL Draft by the Dallas Cowboys but never stayed healthy enough to become a feature back. He has rushed for 2,728 yards and 11 touchdowns in 64 games. The Eagles brought in Jones to compete for a backup spot behind starter LeSean McCoy. Jones rushed for 45 yards on 12 carries and caught two passes for 12 yards in two preseason games with Philadelphia but failed to make inroads on youngsters Bryce Brown and Chris Polk. Jones versatility gives Pittsburgh options if Stephens-Howling remains limited. The former Arkansas star, considered one of the fastest players in the league when healthy, has worked part-time as a return specialist throughout his career, including a 98-yard kickoff return for a score during his rookie season. Its unlikely the Steelers consider Jones a short-term replacement for Bell, who sprained his foot against the Redskins. Bell said Thursday he is optimistic hell be able to return quickly and coach Mike Tomlin called early developments in Bells rehab encouraging. Redman and Jonathan Dwyer, who led the Steelers with 623 yards rushing last season, will split time with the first team on Saturday night against Kansas City. Tomlin said theres a chance Stephens-Howling may play versus the Chiefs. Stephens-Howling is considered the leading candidate to handle kickoffs when the season opens Sept. 8 against Tennessee. Robinson made the Steelers as an undrafted rookie free agent last season, appearing in 12 games. He was in the midst of a stellar camp and recovered a fumble for Pittsburghs only touchdown in the preseason opener against the New York Giants. Wholesale Falcons Jerseys China .

Tevin Coleman Jersey .C. -- North Carolina State coach Mark Gottfried said his team had a "golden" opportunity to help its NCAA tournament chances. SEATTLE -- Milwaukee manager Ron Roenicke has always believed its a good idea to put in the lineup a player returning to where he once played. Yuniesky Betancourt proved his belief right again on Friday night. Betancourt highlighted Milwaukees five-run fifth inning with his second grand slam of the season, and the Brewers beat the Seattle Mariners 10-5. "I think its good. I think it makes a difference," Roenicke said. "I think the adrenaline there is different." Once the Mariners starting shortstop, Betancourt came back to haunt his former club as the teams opened a three-game series. Betancourts slam was his 13th homer of the season and he enjoyed every second of going deep against his former team. Betancourt drove the pitch from Joe Saunders out to left, walking and watching as he left the batters box, then flipped his bat before excitedly running the bases. It was his sixth career grand slam. "I feel a little more excited," Betancourt said of his return to Seattle. "I have good memories of here, for the people here." Norichika Aoki also drove in three runs as the Brewers scored 10 runs for the first time since June 12. While the Brewers were knocking around Seattles pitchers, Kyle Lohse was putting in another strong performance. Lohse (8-7) won for the seventh time in his last eight decisions, holding the Mariners to three runs in seven innings. Kyle Seager had a two-run single in the third for Seattle, but Lohse pitched out of trouble in the third, fifth and seventh innings. Lohse has lost just once since May 30. The Mariners big weekend honouring former star Ken Griffey Jr. with his induction into the teams Hall of Fame got off to an ugly start thanks to another sloppy defensive effort and Saunders struggle pitching out of jams. Seattle committed three errors while Saunders was on the mound, and five of the nine runs Milwaukee scored against him were unearned. "I dont think Joe threw the ball that bad," acting Seattle manager Robby Thompson said. "He got the ground balls and then we didnt make the plays behind him." But Saunders (10-11) caused his own trouble the led to Betancourts slam. Jean Segura led off the fifth with a single and Saunders issued consecutive walks to Carlos Gomez and Khris Davis to load the bases for Betancourt. Saunders then hung a 1-1 slider in the middle of tthe strike zone and Betancourt didnt miss.dddddddddddd It was his second home run in 18 career games against the Mariners. Betancourt spent parts of five seasons playing in Seattle. "I know he goes into a funk sometimes offensively, but defensively he moves around, he plays all the positions really well. Hes a utility man and thats what we asked him to come here and do and hes played a lot more than we thought," Roenicke said. Betancourt wasnt the only one battering Seattle pitching. Aoki had a two-run double in the third inning and added an RBI single to cap the Brewers big fifth inning. Martin Maldonado also had a two-run double with two outs in the fourth inning. Lohse said teammates were giving him a hard time that his bat being out of the lineup was the reason for the 10-run outburst. "Its been a while since we scored that many early," Lohse said. "It was kind of nice for myself to relax a little bit out there on the mound." Roenicke wasnt around to see Betancourts slam after getting ejected by home plate umpire Dan Bellino in the fourth inning. Betancourts one-out grounder bounced off Seagers glove for his second error of the night and rolled into foul territory down the left-field line. Gomez scored from first on the play, but Thompson claimed a fan touched the ball. The umpires met and agreed with Thompson, sending Gomez back to third base. That brought out Roenicke, who argued that Gomez should still have been awarded home plate. After a few minutes, Roenicke was ejected, the second time this year Roenicke has been tossed. The argument became moot as Jeff Bianchi followed with a bloop single to score Gomez and give the Brewers a 3-2 lead. "I stayed out too long. I should have been kicked out," Roenicke said. "I just told him he took the easy road out. ... I stayed out there too long because I really felt I was right."
