Alabama linebacker Reuben Foster’s urine sample at the NFL combine came back diluted, which, by NFL rules, means it is treated like a specimen that has tested positive for a banned substance, according to NFL.com . Foster says that a case of food poisoning is to blame for the diluted test. To get better before the combine, Foster was on IV fluids and claims he “drank and ate as much as I could without throwing up.” “I couldn’t eat much, but I had to drink water and Gatorade,” he said. “Then a few coaches said something about me being too light… so I drank and ate as much as I could without throwing up.
Below is the leaked schedule, per numerous media outlets now. My first thoughts is this is a nightmare schedule early. To start on the road on Monday Night Football, then turn around and have to play the Patriots at home on a short week (when they played Thursday night and will have a lot more time to prepare) – then you have to go on the road twice more before the bye, including once to London

UFC Fight Night: Manuwa vs Anderson Pick ‘Em Results
Most NFL teams have played 10 games this season. That means the contenders are starting to emerge, and the pretenders are revealing themselves. The contenders and pretenders through Week 11 of the 2016 season are listed below, including their remaining schedule
Pretenders, contenders in the NFL right now
*Yuniesky Betancourt, Spring Training 2013 casualty, is now with the Milwaukee Brewers and is batting .279/.795 with 3 HR and 15 RBI. Instead of releasing him, Amaro should have signed him to a 5 YR/$125M contract. Don’t ya think?! *Ben Revere might be a defensive whiz, but his offense negates any good he does with the glove. His OPS is .472, which ranks 186th out of 192 qualified batters. The only way it will improve is through singles, because he doesn’t walk or get extra base hits. *The Phillies are 6.5 games back of the Braves in the NL East and 4 games back of the Giants and Reds for a Wild Card. You can’t secure a playoff berth in April, but you sure as hell can lose one. But don’t worry, I’ve been told that Chooch and Delmon Young will save this team. *Mike Adams had only 15 losses in 358 appearances, spanning 8 seasons before this year. He now has 2 losses in 11 appearances for the Phils. Yeah! *On a positive note, Halladays’ last 3 starts- 21 IP, 5 BB, 16 K, 1.71 ERA, 0.62 WHIP. Apparently the success has been due to his frequent use of his sinker, rather than the storied cutter.
Phillies Make Complaing Easy
It’s common knowledge that Harry Leroy Halladay III represents everything that is virtuous, noble, and true about modern athletes and the glory of athletic pursuit in general. Therefore it’s natural to see the ties between those qualities and the now-underway games of the XXXth Olympiad (you’ve read my Phillies as Olympic Events post by now, right?!). ZWR staff illustrator Mattmac has taken to chronicling Roy’s achievements in London (which also may explain how tired he’s been on the mound of late, just saying), and I’m thrilled to share those with you now.
