The Cardinals have a new head coach.
Arizona announced Monday it has hired Panthers defensive coordinator Steve Wilks to replace newly retired Bruce Arians.
Next up as coordinator in Carolina is Eric Washington, who was promoted to the job later Monday after coaching the Panthers’ defensive line since 2011.
NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported Sunday evening that Brown has a partially torn calf muscle that will keep him out for Pittsburgh’s final two regular season games. Despite losing to the Patriots, the Steelers (11-3) are in a good position to earn a first-round bye.
That extra week could be the difference between Brown being available for his team’s postseason opener.
Tomlin said running back James Conner will undergo knee surgery Tuesday on a damaged MCL. He was placed on injured reserve. His roster spot was filled by free-agent back Stevan Ridley. The Steelers coach added that cornerback Joe Haden (fibula) and tight end Vance McDonald (shoulder) could be available this week after missing Sunday’s loss to the New England Patriots.
The Eagles have overcome underdog status in their previous two playoff wins, but as ESPN.com points out, it’s historically not a place you want to be entering the big game as the betting favorite has won 33 of the previous 51 Super Bowls.
Trump went back to speaking about economic growth as several audience members behind him stood up. The bugle call was Retreat, which signifies the lowering of the American flag on a military installation. Although Trump attended a military high school, the commander in chief appeared unaware of the music’s meaning.
The White House did not respond to questions seeking to understand Trump’s familiarity with this military tradition.
One of the first subjects taught to new members of the armed forces is customs and courtesies, including respect for the flag. Service members are required to stand at attention and salute when they are outside and Retreat plays.
