KANSAS CITY, Mo. Cheap Soccer Jerseys Online . - Finally healthy and given a shot to start, linebacker Josh Mauga suddenly leads the resurgent Kansas City Chiefs in tackles nearing the midway point of the season.Never heard of him? The New York Jets can give you a primer.When they visit Arrowhead Stadium on Sunday, they will gaze across the field at the very same linebacker that they decided was washed up. Mauga struggled with so many injuries the past couple seasons that the Jets finally let him go, only for him to find a home in Kansas City.Not only did Mauga earn a job in training camp, he quickly became the starter when Pro Bowl linebacker Derrick Johnson tore his Achilles tendon in the season opener.Whirlwind? You bet. But in the best way possible.Absolutely, Mauga said. Trying to fill in for D.J. was kind of tough the first couple weeks, trying to take on that new role, but I take advice from him and Joe Mays and get with Tamba Hali and Justin Houston. They help me with every snap, every play out there.Not that he needs a whole lot of help.Mauga has already proven that he can overcome just about anything set in his path.His history of injuries began in college at Nevada, where he was first sidelined by a knee injury. Later on, Mauga tore a pectoral muscle, playing through the injury most of the season.He went undrafted in 2009 in part because of his injury history, in part because he simply didnt get on the field enough to show scouts what he could do. But the Jets decided to take a chance on him, signing him as a free agent and giving him a shot to earn a job in camp.He was still snake-bit, though. After spending a year on the Jets practice squad, he suffered a concussion in training camp that sidelined him again. He finally made his NFL debut in 2010, and played in 16 games the following year, even making his first career start.Then the injuries hit again: another torn pectoral two years ago, followed by a back injury in training camp last year that required surgery at the end of the season.Any time you have injuries, its frustrating, Mauga said this week, and having back-to-back like I did, I wasnt sure if I would get a chance to play again. But I did and Im here and Im just trying to take advantage of it.The Chiefs are glad he never thought about giving up the game.Mauga already has 47 tackles, more than a dozen more than Ron Parker, who ranks second on the team. His best performance came a few weeks ago, when he had 10 stops in a game at San Francisco.Everybodys got certain roles, Chiefs linebackers coach Gary Gibbs said. They have to understand their responsibilities. Everybody approaches it differently. In Joshs case hes been out for a year or so, coming off an injury, so hes had to knock some rust off.The reality is hell never be confused for tackling machines such as Carolinas Luke Kuechly and Tampa Bays Lavonte David. He surely wont be confused for Johnson, either.But Mauga has proven to be a reliable fill-in, and is a big reason why Kansas City still has the NFLs second-best defence heading into Sundays game against the Jets.I think Josh has done a really good job and, again as weve mentioned, a guy that has been out all last year basically with an injury, said Chiefs defensive co-ordinator Bob Sutton, who was an assistant coach with the Jets when Mauga broke into the league.Hes starting to come along very well, and done a good job and understands the defence and can get everyone lined up. Thats a real bonus for a guy that walks in and has to take over that role. Hes a real smart football player. Wholesale Soccer Jerseys . Make that, almost always subjective. Saturday at Carrow Road, the spirit of fair play trumped the rulebook, costing Norwich City three points. Wholesale Soccer Jerseys Store . Dougie Hamilton and Jordan Caron scored in the first period after the Red Wings had miscues on the ice and Tuukka Rask finished with a 23-save shutout, giving Boston a 3-0 win over the Red Wings and a 2-1 series lead in their first-round series. http://www.cheapsoccerjerseys.co/ . The Raptors have been outscored 88-66 in the opening quarter over a three-game span to begin the month of February. Their most recent loss, 109-101 in Sacramento on Wednesday, was eerily similar to Saturdays defeat at the hands of the Trail Blazers.ATLANTA -- Theres no way Kris Medlen could live up to the expectations he set last season. The Atlanta Braves have no complaints. It looks as if hes ready to be a major contributor in the post-season. Medlen pitched seven scoreless innings, Brian McCann hit a three-run homer and Atlanta completed a sweep of the Cleveland Indians with a 3-1 victory Thursday night. "Im being aggressive," said Medlen, who relied heavily on his fastball in the early innings. "Hopefully, I can keep it going through September and October." McCann went deep in the third after Justin Upton kept the inning going with a two-out single. Upton had to leave the game in the sixth after being struck on the left hand by a pitch, but X-rays were negative. He is day to day. Medlen (11-12) capped a series of dominant pitching by the Braves, who surrendered just three runs in three games and maintained a commanding 13-game lead in the NL East. David Carpenter gave up a pinch-hit homer to Lonnie Chisenhall in the eighth, but Craig Kimbrel worked a scoreless ninth for his 43rd save in 46 chances. "Weve been getting good pitching all season long," McCann said. "Thats why were in the position were in." Medlen hasnt matched what he did the final two months of 2012, when he joined the rotation, made a dozen starts and went 9-0 with a 0.97 ERA. But manager Fredi Gonzalez likes what he sees. "People were expecting him to do the same thing," Gonzalez said. "Thats just a fantasy." Ubaldo Jimenez (9-9) took the loss. He pitched seven strong innings, but one big mistake cost him. McCann launched his 19th homer of the season about 10 rows back in the right-field seats, giving the Braves all the runs they would need for their fourth straight victory. The only good news for the Indians: They didnt lose any ground in the AL wild-card race, remaining four games back of Oakland. The As lost 7-6 at Detroit. "Really, the whole series was their ability to get a big hit and we didnt," Cleveland manager Terry Francona said. "Low-scoring games and they were able to find a way to get a big hit and we didnt." Medlen surrendered six hits in snapping a two-game losing sttreak, taking advantage of a team that is struggling offensively in what could be a crucial stretch of its season. Soccer Jerseys Outlet. The Indians have scored more than three runs only once in the last seven games as they prepare for upcoming series against AL Central-leading Detroit and playoff contender Baltimore. Cleveland didnt get more than one runner aboard in any inning until the seventh, when Carlos Santana led off with a single and Yan Gomes reached on a hit with one out. The threat fizzled as Asdrubal Cabrera flied out to centre and Mike Aviles lined out to right. "When youre not knocking the ball all over the ballpark, then getting key hits is huge," Francona said. "We havent been able to." With the Cleveland offence posing little threat, the biggest scare for the Braves came in the sixth when Upton was plunked on the left hand by a 92 mph fastball from Jimenez. As Upton walked off the field, there was a sense of dread at Turner Field. Just eight days earlier, outfielder Jason Heyward was struck in the face by a pitch against the New York Mets, leaving him with a broken jaw that required surgery. He could miss the rest of the regular season, though Heyward hopes to return in time for the playoffs. Uptons injury was not nearly as serious, it turned out, the Braves finally catching a break in what has been an injury plagued season. "Thats a fragile area," said Upton, his hand wrapped after the game. "It was definitely a little bit scary." Gonzalez said hell probably sit Upton on Friday as a precaution and "go from there." NOTES: The Indians released RHP Brett Myers from his contract. After signing a $7 million contract, he went 0-3 with an 8.02 ERA before going on the disabled list April 20. He didnt pitch again for the Indians, but hopes to catch on with another team for the final month. ... Chisenhalls drive off Carpenter was the first pinch-hit homer of his career. ... The Braves begin a three-game home series against Miami on Friday, with Julio Teheran (10-7) facing Jose Fernandez (10-5). ... Zach McAllister (7-7) will go for the Indians against Detroits Rick Porcello (10-7) in the opener of that series. ' ' '
