after he had 13 carries for 51 yards

    TORONTO - Daniel Winniks head hit the ice and he briefly lost consciousness. [b]Edrice Adebayo Jersey[/b] . Before he was taken off on a stretcher last Thursday night, he was able to tell the training staff about the entire play that led to his fall.Winnik never felt numb and never had any pain in his neck. By the intermission, he was walking around the visiting locker-room at Pepsi Center in Denver and telling his Toronto Maple Leafs teammates he was OK.After being held out of two games over the weekend for precautionary reasons, Winnik skated by himself Monday, took part in Tuesdays practice and could be back in the lineup Wednesday against the Boston Bruins. He considers himself lucky to have come away from the incident unscathed.Usually you see plays like that and someone laying on the ice and you expect like a concussion or something, Winnik said. I was fully aware of what was going on. I remember the hit. Obviously just went out for a little bit. But I felt fine, I wasnt dizzy, didnt have a headache or anything.The medical staff held Winnik out of the rest of the Leafs 4-3 shootout loss to the Colorado Avalanche and then coach Randy Carlyle was told Winnik shouldnt play Saturday or Sunday.They provided us with a timetable in which they thought was best prescribed in this situation, so thats what you have to follow, Carlyle said. In the world of sports, the concussion issue is talked about in a bunch of different ways, and this to us was not something that we had any other way other than what the medical staff and the doctors prescribed.The 29-year-old forward seemed to be fitting in extremely well since signing a one-year deal with Toronto in the off-season. Winnik has a goal and six assists in his first 13 games and in the process forced his way further up the lineup than Carlyle expected.Still, Winnik didnt object to sitting out two games just to be safe.I completely agreed with the training staff on that, he said. As much as I wanted to play, I understand it. Its the best thing to do going forward. Why risk it, its silly to say, just for two games. I know its two important games, but down the road itll benefit me more.The Leafs won each game, beating the New York Rangers 5-4 and then the Ottawa Senators 5-3. Coming up Wednesday is a rematch with the rival Boston Bruins, who embarrassed the Leafs 4-1 at Air Canada Centre on Oct. 25.It was a lot of stupidity and guys will admit that, centre Nazem Kadri said of the teams performance that night against Boston. Just being in the wrong place at the wrong time and just kind of having a couple brain cramps here and there that end up in the back of your net.If Winnik plays, hes expected to be back on the second line alongside Kadri and right-winger David Clarkson. Thats where he skated Tuesday, giving the indication that he should be good to face Boston.Carlyle said doctors would make an assessment of Winniks condition after Wednesdays morning skate and then again after pre-game warm-ups.The possibility of Winnik returning so quickly seemed like a longshot last week.Its just one of those instances where you get lucky, defenceman Cody Franson said. That was a big scare for all of us. Any time you can get a guy back like that and where he looks OK, its a big relief for the group.Winnik was relieved almost right away. Other than an interference penalty, he didnt think former teammate Jan Hejda had any ill intent on the play, and the Colorado defenceman later reached out to make sure Winnik was fine.Fully aware of his surroundings, Winnik called it a rare scene for a hockey rink to be so silent. After watching the replay of himself going to the ice headfirst the next day, he could understand why.Its tough to see yourself laying on the ice like that, Winnik said.Notes: Winger David Booth, who has been out six weeks with a broken foot, skated with strength and conditioning coach Anthony Belza again Tuesday. Its unclear when he might rejoin the Leafs for practice, Carlyle said. ... The coach also said winger Joffrey Lupul is at least a week away from rejoining the team on the ice. Lupul recently had a cast removed from his broken right hand, but is having another smaller cast put on.———Follow @SWhyno on Twitter. [b]Kelly Olynyk Jersey[/b] . Lupul injured the hand in a fall at practice on Thursday. He will wear a cast for a minimum of 10 days before he can put a glove back on it and get some mobility back, said Carlyle, who added the winger wont go on the teams upcoming road trip.

TSN Hockey Insiders Pierre LeBrun and Bob McKenzie both reported Thursday that there have been ongoing trade discussions between the Oilers and Los Angeles Kings over forward Sam Gagner.ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. - The one-two punch in the Buffalo Bills offensive backfield just got knocked out.Running back C.J. Spiller is out indefinitely — and could miss the rest of the season — after having surgery Monday to repair an injury to his collarbone. And co-starter Fred Jackson revealed during his weekly radio show on Buffalos WGR that he could miss up to four weeks with a groin injury.Both players were hurt about 10 minutes apart in the first half of a 17-16 win over Minnesota on SundayThe injuries leave Buffalo (4-3) turning to backups Anthony Dixon and Bryce Brown to carry the load for the near future.The Bills play at the New York Jets (1-6) on Sunday before entering their bye week off.The injuries nearly overshadowed a dramatic victory, in which Kyle Orton capped a 15-play, 80-yard drive with a 2-yard touchdown pass to Sammy Watkins with 1 second left.Coach Doug Marrone confirmed Spiller had surgery, but declined to discuss the nature of the injury. As for a timetable, Marrone said hes waiting for doctors to provide a prognosis before determining how much time Spiller might miss.Marrone noted all options are on the table, including placing Spiller on the injured reserve/designated to return list. Under that designation, Spiller wouldnt be eligible to return until Week 16.The Bills initially announced Spiller hurt his shoulder before Marrone provided the update on Monday.Spiller was hurt after a 53-yard run in the second quarter, when he was tripped up from behind and fell hard on his left shoulder along the left sideline. He was carefully loaded into a cart and was in tears while driven off.The injury has the potential of ending Spillers tenure in Buffalo. The Bills 2010 first-round draft pick is completing the final year of his contract, making him eligible to become a free agent this off-season.Jackson was already in the locker room when Spiller was carted in.I didnt say anything to him. I just kind of gave him a big hug, put my arm around him and told him I was there for him, Jackson said.Jackson was hurt in the first quarter, when he felt something pop upon taking a handoff on a third-and-1 pllay. [b]Cheap NBA Jerseys[/b]. He took a few steps before falling and then immediately grabbed the inside of his left leg.Jackson said doctors informed him the pop was a muscle being pulled about a centimetre off the bone.Its typically a four-week injury, but well try to do some things to get it sped up, Jackson said. Hopefully, I can get back a lot sooner than that.Marrone was not pleased with Jackson going public with his injury and wouldnt say whether the four-week prognosis is accurate.Either way, Buffalos running-back rotation is going to have an altogether new look.Dixon, an off-season free-agent addition, is expected to get additional playing time after he had 13 carries for 51 yards against Minnesota. Brown, acquired in a trade with Philadelphia in May, will finally get a chance to play after being listed as inactive through the first seven games.The Bills also have fullback Frank Summers.For the time-being, Marrone is comfortable with his depth at running back, but didnt rule out adding one to the practice squad.Brown is eager to finally get an opportunity to suit up, though unhappy that it comes because of injuries.I reached out to both yesterday and told them Im praying for a speedy recovery, Brown said. I told them, Im going to go out there and play for them. Ill do my very best. I dont want to let those guys down.Brown was in a similar position during his rookie season in Philadelphia in 2012, when filled in after injured starter LeSean McCoy.In his first start, Brown set the Eagles single-game rookie rushing record with 178 yards rushing and two touchdowns. He followed that with 169 yards rushing and two more score in becoming the NFLs fifth rookie since 1960 to rush for 165-plus yards in consecutive games.In Buffalo, Brown has been the odd-man out because Dixon also fills a role on special teams.I know that I can perform and play on this level, Brown said. But at the end of the day, I dont control whos active and whos not. And unfortunately it was me. But I dont really want to focus on that because thats not really important.___AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and http://twitter.com/AP_NFL Wholeslae Jerseys NFL Jerseys Cheap Wholesale NBA Jerseys Cheap NHL Jerseys Cheap MLB Jerseys Wholesale Soccer Jerseys Cheap College Jerseys Cheap Football Jerseys Cheap Basketball Jerseys Cheap Baseball Jerseys ' ' '
