    (STATS) -- After an injury to its starting quarterback derailed a highly promising 2015 season, Villanova is hoping to avoid the same fate a year later. Air Max 97 Scontate .The 16th-ranked Wildcats may be without Zach Bednarczyk for Saturdays important showdown with No. 23 Albany (3:30 p.m. ET) due to a concussion he sustained in last weeks 23-0 loss at Richmond. Coach Andy Talley said he wont know if the highly valued sophomore will be medically cleared by game time, leaving the most essential position in unwanted flux for a game that could ultimately decide the fortunes for both playoff hopefuls.He may be ruled out or he may be allowed to play, but if he is allowed to play we probably wont have a whole lot of time to work with him, Talley stated. Its not the best situation when youre playing a team like Albany.As the staff awaits word on Bednarczyks status, it is feverishly trying to get Adeyemi DaSilva up to speed for the increasing likelihood that the untested sophomore will make his first collegiate start.Its a similar predicament Villanova (5-2, 3-1 CAA Football) experienced when an unproven Bednarczyk was forced into the fray after 2014 FCS offensive player of the year John Robertson hurt his knee in the third game of last season. The Wildcats, ranked fifth at the time, went on to lose three of their next four games en route to a disappointing 6-5 finish.DaSilvas inexperience showed against a Spiders defense thats allowing a league-low 270.4 total yards per game, as he completed just 6 of 14 passes for 62 yards and was sacked three times in Villanovas first shutout loss since 2004.Though Albany (4-2, 1-2) ranks last in the conference in total defense, it is surrendering just 19.3 points per game and has induced 21 turnovers, the most among FCS teams.They very well could be undefeated, Talley said. Theyre very good, theyve now become an upper-level team in the CAA and somebody that you better bring your best game when you play them.The Great Danes have indeed exceeded expectations after being picked to finish 11th in the conference, though Greg Gattusos young squad enters this high-stakes matchup on a downward trend of its own after dropping close games to Richmond and Maine.I do recognize our youth and I do recognize where were at in our program, but at the end of the day wins and losses in the column and competing is more important than excuses, Gattuso said. I think if we can play the way we need to be, our chance of winning will go up. Air Max 97 Ingrosso . Anthony Calvillo, through 20 CFL seasons, was frequently invincible and largely stoic in the heat of competition. But underneath the professional exterior he was, and is, compellingly human. Air Max 97 Scontate Uomo . The 25-year-old Japanese star has officially been posted by his club team, the Rakuten Golden Eagles. . -- Derrick Rose shook off poor shooting early to hit clutch shots late and Carlos Boozer had 20 points and 13 rebounds to lead the Chicago Bulls to a 104-95 preseason victory over the Oklahoma City Thunder on Wednesday night. KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- The World Series champions have failed to make the postseason for the fourth year in a row.Kendrys Morales and Alex Gordon keyed an eighth-inning rally and Kansas City beat the Minnesota Twins 5-2 on Wednesday night, but the Royals were still knocked out of playoff contention.The defending World Series champs were eliminated when Baltimore beat Toronto 3-2 earlier Wednesday.Obviously wed like to be playing a lot more baseball, but the reality of it is were not, said Eric Hosmer, who hit a two-run homer in the third.Morales ground-rule double to right scored Jarrod Dyson, who had doubled and stole third. Gordons single scored Whit Merrifield and pinch-runner Billy Burns.Dyson said he would not be watching postseason games.Its kind of sad and tough to watch postseason when youre not in it, Dyson said.The Twins, who have lost 10 of 11, have dropped 102 games, tying the 1982 team for its highest total since moving to Minnesota for the 1961 season. The Washington Senators lost a franchise-worst 113 games in 1904.Were trying to win games, but its becoming difficult, Twins right-hander Ervin Santana said. But, I think we just try to do too much and we forgot about the little things. Its a game. You just have to prepare to be better for the next year.Taylor Rogers (3-1), the fourth of five Twins pitchers, took the loss after allowing three runs, three hits and two walks while retiring only one of the six batters he faced.Joakim Soria (5-8) worked a scoreless eighth to pick up the victory. Wade Davis got his 27th save in 30 chances.Royals left-hander Jason Vargas tossed five shutout innings, allowing four hits, striking out six and walking one. He threw 53 strikes in 87 pitches, leaving with a 2-0 lead in his third start since having Tommy John surgery in 2015. Vargas finishes with a 2.25 ERA, allowing three runs and eight hits while striking out 11 and walking three in 12 innings.It was nice to have a reward as far as having some success once I was able to step underneath the lights and really get out there for real, Vargas said.. Air Max 97 Italia. . Going into the offseason, I was just hoping for health as far as being able to have the normal offseason. So to have a nice outing like this before is a nice comfortable feeling.Rookie Kevin McCarthy, however, did not hold the lead for long. McCarthy yielded a two-run two-out home run to Kennys Vargas in the sixth. After McCarthy walked the next two batters, Peter Moylan was summoned to face John Ryan Murphy, retiring him on a comebacker.The Vargas homer snapped a Twins streak of 106 innings without more than one run. According to Elias, it is the longest such streak in the majors since the Philadelphia Phillies went 109 innings in 1942 without scoring multiple runs.We just kind of stagnated from there, Twins manager Paul Molitor said.Hosmer hit a two-run homer, his 25th, off Santana in the third. The Royals did not get another hit until Dysons one-out double in the eighth.NO REPEATThe Royals follow the San Francisco Giants (in 2013 and 15) and Boston Red Sox (in 2014) in failing to reach the playoffs after winning the World Series.ATTENDANCE DECLINEThe Wednesday attendance of 23,437 pushed the Royals season total to 2,445,361 after 77 home dates. After 77 Kauffman Stadium dates last year, the Royals had pulled 2,564,750 through the turnstiles, a decline of 119,389.ZERO AT KCThe Twins dropped to 0-9 at Kauffman Stadium. They have never finished a season winless at Kansas City.TRAINERS ROOMTwins: 1B Joe Mauer (hamstring injury) was not in the lineup, but Molitor said he was available to pinch hit.Royals: OF Lorenzo Cain, who has played only one game in September because of left wrist inflammation, will not play again this season. There is no need to push him, Royals manager Ned Yost said.UP NEXTTwins: RHP Kyle Gibson, who went to the University of Missouri, will make his 11th career start against the Royals.Royals: LHP Danny Duffy is 1-0 with a 1.93 ERA in three outings against the Twins this season. Cheap Hoodies From ChinaDiscount NFL Shirts Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Cheap NFL Jerseys China Wholesale China Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys From China Cheap Jerseys Cheap Jerseys Fast Shipping China Jerseys Stitched Jerseys ' ' '
