Report: Patriots G Joe Thuney to undergo foot surgery

Tom Brady ‘s offensive line is dealing with another issue this offseason.

Left guard Joe Thuney is preparing for upcoming foot surgery, ESPN’s Mike Reiss reported Thursday.

Thuney’s surgery isn’t expected to threaten his availability when the season opens in September, but getting cut open is rarely a positive.

Mack didn’t play well enough last year (3.8 yards per carry, four drops on 33 targets) for Frank Reich to simply hand him the starting job, but I think his play-making ability (six carries of 20-plus yards last season) gives him a leg up on his backfield competition. If you had asked me this question 24 hours ago, Christian McCaffrey probably would have been my top choice.

McCaffrey was a PPR monster last year—his 80 catches were third-most among running backs—and he appeared to be poised for a full workload following Jonathan Stewart ’s release. But the Panthers altered their backfield equation Monday by signing Broncos cast-off C.J. Anderson, who is coming off his first 1,000-yard rushing season. I imagine McCaffrey’s role will be similar to the one he had last year, which means he’ll still offer plenty of appeal in PPR formats.

It was Sunday, and (Monday) he came here, got treatment, threw a little bit, Cora said. We decided it was better for him to go back to Boston, check it out and go from there.

Price did not undergo any tests following the first round of numbness in his hand, partially because of the cold weather on that April night.

Everybody thought, everybody agreed that it was just something that happened that night, Cora said. We actually felt it was something that wasn’t going to happen. It was just a one-day thing. Obviously with the weather, we talked about it, and we thought that it wasn’t going to happen again.

The 2018 NBA Playoffs will televise two games on Tuesday, May 8, 2018 (5/8/18). The Utah Jazz, down 3-1 in a Western Conference best-of-seven series, meet the Houston Rockets at Toyota Center in Houston, Texas.sharks-005
