Jets Spend Final Elevation on Insurance Policy, Fortify Injury Issues
Publisher:  Heavy.com
Saturday, 01 October 2022 23:11

The New York Jets decided not to use any practice squad elevations in Week 3 but that trend will not continue against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

On October 1, team reporter Ethan Greenberg revealed that the coaching staff would call up linebacker Hamsah Nasirildeen and offensive tackle Grant Hermanns. This will be the first time the second-year defender contributes on the active roster — assuming he plays on Sunday.

Hermanns, on the other hand, has already been elevated twice. Per NFL rules, this is the final time the Jets can promote the blocker without signing him to the official 53.


Jets Strengthen LB & OT After Injuries

It should come as no surprise that Gang Green has chosen to bulk up at the two positions where injuries have plagued them in recent weeks. In fact, ESPN’s Rich Cimini predicted these two elevations the night before on September 30.

Offensive tackle is more obvious. It’s been an issue ever since Mekhi Becton’s training camp demise and it’s only gone downhill from there.

The Jets have already signed four veterans at O-tackle if you count Conor McDermott, who re-signed after being cut in August. The others are Duane Brown (IR), Cedric Ogbuehi and Mike Remmers — but the latter two only joined the organization this week.

McDermott is set to start at left tackle in Pittsburgh, with Hermanns and Ogbuehi on the roster in case of emergency. Rookie Max Mitchell will log his fourth-straight start at right tackle.

Nasirildeen’s promotion is useful in two ways. With the injury to Quincy Williams, he’ll first serve as linebacker depth behind starters C.J. Mosley, Kwon Alexander, and Marcell Harris — who stepped into Williams’ role last week. The elevation would fall in as the fifth LB behind fellow 2021 draft pick Jamien Sherwood.

He’d also help on special teams. Nasirildeen has had his troubles transitioning to linebacker but he’s always displayed a strong ability on Brant Boyer’s ST unit.

These are sound choices by head coach Robert Saleh and his staff.


Jets Insider Predicts Week 4 Inactives

Speaking of Mr. Cimini, the long-time NYJ beat reporter has a great habit of predicting the Sunday inactives the night before they occur.

For the Week 4 clash with the Steelers, Cimini tweeted the following: “Projecting Jets inactives; QB Mike White, WR Denzel Mims, TE Lawrence Cager, OT Cedric Ogbuehi, LB Quincy Williams, DL Jacob Martin, S Will Parks. A hunch DE Bryce Huff will be active. CB Bryce Hall could be up because Brandin Echols has been dealing with [a] hamstring [ailment].”

If Cimini is correct, it will be the first time Huff suits up in 2022. Fans have been begging to see the pass rusher in action after his stellar preseason finale against the New York Giants.

The Jets’ defensive line has not lived up to its preseason billing this fall. Perhaps, Huff is the spark plug that gets this unit going.

As for his other selections, White makes sense as the third quarterback on the roster and Williams has already been labeled “out” on the injury report. Mims has also been a healthy scratch every week this season, so that’s a good bet in Pittsburgh too.

Draft pick Jeremy Ruckert has also replaced Cager in recent weeks after he struggled in the opener. That could certainly continue here in Week 4.

Martin takes Huff’s place and Ogbuehi has logged very few practices with the franchise — although I could see Saleh keeping him active as additional insurance at OT. The final prediction is Parks, who is currently the fifth safety on the roster.

Warriors’ Klay Thompson Puts ‘Freaking Hater’ on Blast
Publisher:  Heavy.com
Saturday, 01 October 2022 23:06

The Golden State Warriors didn’t just play a pair of preseason contests against Bradley Beal and the Wiz during their quick jaunt to Japan. They also participated in a number of non-game events and showcases, acting as ambassadors of the NBA game to the local fans.

One such event was the NBA Japan Games Saturday Night Fan Fest, which saw the Splash Bros. team of Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson take on Jordan Poole and Moses Moody in an All-Star style Three-Point Shootout (with the team-up twist).

As one might expect, Steph and Klay — who have combined to drain more than 5,000 triples in their pro careers — made quick work of the young Dubs.

The real fireworks arguably came during the winners’ interview at center court. After throwing some playful shade at Poole and Moody, Thompson promptly turned his attention to the public face of the NBA 2K video game series — Ronnie Singh, a.k.a. Ronnie 2K — lighting him up in the process.


Klay’s Beef With Ronnie 2K Is Still Very Much a Thing

Klay’s initial response to a question about how he felt about winning the shootout was more or less standard fare for this kind of interview.

“Feels great! I might not be able to jump like these young bucks, but I’ll never lose the strap,” Thompson said. Then, he turned his attention to Singh.

“Ronnie 2K — change my three-point rating right now! Right now! Freaking hater!”

Just a handful of days before the release of the NBA 2K23 video game in early September, it was revealed that Thompson’s in-game, three-point rating of 88 was tied with Kevin Durant, Desmond Bane and Luke Kennard for second league-wide.

Steph was the only player rated higher than the aforementioned with a 99 score. Despite this fact, Thompson took to Instagram to shred the 2K series, writing, “NBA 2K has been doo doo since Sega Dreamcast.”

For the record, that console was released way back in 1999.

Clearly, time hasn’t healed Thompson’s wounds if he still felt compelled to go at Singh now. For his part, though, the 2K guru probably isn’t sweating the beef.


Ronnie 2K Defends Thompson’s In-Game Rating

Singh notably took the high road when probed for a reaction to Thompson’s criticism during a recent interview with Sports Illustrated‘s Joey Linn.

“He was really upset about an 88 three-point rating,” Singh said. “But you know what the funny thing is? That was still tied for the second-highest rating.”

As Singh sees it, this is simply a case of the Steph effect.

“I think that’s part of the issue of having a teammate that’s leaps and bounds ahead of everybody, like how do you deal with that? Steph since 2015 has made way more than 10% more three-pointers than anyone else in the league. So at some point, shouldn’t the rating be 10% higher than everybody else in the league? How do we deal with that?

“I think he’s just kinda broke that scale.”

Regardless of how one feels about Thompson’s rating, it’s difficult to find fault in Singh’s logic. Steph is, after all, in a class all his own as a three-point shooter.


Ex-Steelers Kicker Gets ‘Another Chance’; 2 Former 2nd-Round Picks Elevated
Publisher:  Heavy.com
Saturday, 01 October 2022 23:05

On Saturday Oct. 1 the Kansas City Chiefs promoted Matthew Wright from the practice squad, giving the former Pittsburgh Steelers placekicker the chance to rescue yet another team from a kicking crisis. Kansas City has been unsettled at the position all season, having lost their starting kicker, Harrison Butker, to an ankle injury in Week 1. Since then the Chiefs have utilized emergency replacement Justin Reid, as well as Matt Ammendola, the latter of whom missed a short field goal and an extra-point in a Week 3 loss to Indianapolis.

Enter Matthew Wright, who signed to Kansas City’s practice squad earlier this week, and now gets “another chance” to show what he can do. The Chiefs will be the third NFL team for which he has kicked in a regular-season game, and while he excelled in both of his earlier opportunities, he has yet to lock down a full-time placekicking job.


Matthew Wright Helped Jacksonville Snap Its 20-Game Losing Streak in 2021

Wright got his first NFL opportunity in 2019, when he engaged in a training camp competition with Chris Boswell. Rightly, the Steelers chose to stick with Boswell, but the Central Florida product made an impression by converting 5 of 6 field goal attempts during the preseason. He returned to the Steelers in Nov. 2020, signing to the practice squad before making his NFL debut against Washington a week later, while Boswell was nursing a hip injury. All told, he appeared in three games for the Steelers that season, converting 4 of 4 field goals and all 7 of his extra-point attempts.

In Jan. 2021 Wright inked a one-year reserve/futures deal with the Lions following a visit to Detroit, but he was waived during training camp. That opened the door for him to replace Josh Lambo of the Jacksonville Jaguars, who had missed all 3 of his field goal attempts and 2 of 7 extra-point attempts in early-season action.

Again he thrived under pressure, converting 21 of 24 field goal attempts and 13 of 15 extra-point attempts in 14 games with the Jaguars. Most notably, his late game heroics allowed Jacksonville to snap its 20-game losing streak with a 23-20 victory over the Dolphins in London.

Yet still no full-time NFL job, as the Jaguars waived him in May 2022 in what was then described as a “surprise move.”

Sunday night’s road game against Tom Brady and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers will be his first opportunity since his long stint with the Jags last year, though he did have a tryout with the Carolina Panthers in August.

Of course, Wright’s signing and subsequent promotion reunites him with former teammate JuJu Smith-Schuster, who signed a one-year contract with the Chiefs in the offseason. To date, Smith-Schuster has been targeted 19 times by quarterback Patrick Mahomes and has caught 14 passes for 178 yards, an average of 12.7 yards per reception, production somewhat comparable to his only Pro Bowl season, which came in 2018.


Steelers Elevate 2 Former 2nd-Round Picks

Meanwhile, the Steelers made a couple roster moves of their own on Saturday, elevating a pair of defenders — cornerback Josh Jackson and linebacker Ryan Anderson — from the practice squad to the active/inactive roster. Both Jackson and Anderson are former 2nd-round draft picks — of Green Bay and Washington, respectively.

Jackson signed to Pittsburgh’s practice squad on Sept. 5. Ryan Anderson joined the practice squad on Sept. 13, 2022.
