    Only later did the management release a statement that Ishant had, in fact, sustained an injury and the team was not willing to risk him for the final Test . That means the best an unsettled Australia lineup can do is draw the four-match contest by winning in Sydney. Bumrah, the red-hot pacer at the moment with nine wickets under his belt in the third Test at Melbourne, has shown that the current crop of Australian batsmen lacks the technique to face the moving ball.

    He can make plays all over the field, and his speed allows him to rack up yards after the catch. With the elevated play of Juju Smith-Schuster this season for the Steelers , Brown becomes a bit more expendable. Tomlin did not deny that the perception could be reality, that Brown "quit" on the Steelers when the team needed a win (and Ravens loss) to continue their season.

    Doctors determined the procedure is necessary for Wall to remedy an issue that has bothered him for more than a year. For a player like Wall, who relies on his speed and athleticism, a heel injury is very hard to play through. The former No. 1 overall pick has missed three games this season. A five-time All-Star, Wall missed the Wizards' 101-92 loss to the Bulls on Friday because of the injury.

"It was a similar situation", McVay said, via ESPN . "I don't get the sense that he's concerned, but we want to be smart about this". This is pretty important because the Rams get a first round bye if they can win Sunday.

    Liverpool were victorious on their last visit to the Etihad, winning 2-1 on the night and 5-1 on aggregate in April to progress to the Champions League semi-finals. Will Liverpool end their 29-year wait for a title? If he allows Fernandinho the time and space to start picking up the ball in the pockets in the middle of the pitch, allowing him to pick out teammates in attacking positions or drive at the Reds' defence, he will be causing big problems.

    On the final drive, the Ravens broke up multiple passes, but the Browns still moved the ball inside the Ravens' 40-yard line. The brief celebration gesture appeared to show Mayfield pretending to "expose his privates". Jackson produced his sixth game with 50 or more yards rushing. Instead, it was overturned upon review and the Browns got the ball back at their 7. The Browns went three-and-out after a Mayfield pass went off a wide-open Jarvis Landry's helmet at the Browns' 35.
