                                     ASHBURN, Va. Cheap Redskins Jerseys China . -- After absorbing several injury blows, the Washington Redskins signed hard-hitter Donte Whitner to bring some experience and physicality to their defense.The Redskins signed the three-time Pro Bowl safety on Wednesday, putting concussed David Bruton on injured reserve.They also signed former Jacksonville Jaguars safety Josh Evans and released defensive lineman Kendall Reyes.Whitner has 856 tackles in 10 seasons with the Buffalo Bills, San Francisco 49ers and Cleveland Browns. He spent the past two seasons with the Browns, who released him in April just before offseason workouts began, giving him an extra source of motivation.The 31-year-old believes someone in Clevelands front office had a personal vendetta against him for waiting so long to cut him. Whitner said that cost him job opportunities over the past few months.Ive always played the game with a chip on my shoulder, but I think it adds to it, Whitner said.Over the last 10 years playing in the National Football League, knowing where youre going to play, then you get slapped in the face with a release on like the last day of free agency before you report to offseason training, its really a slap in the face. If I was sleepwalking or anything before, Im definitely woke now and ready to play the game.Whitner said he turned down an offer from the Los Angeles Rams because he wanted a one-year deal.He also worked out for the New York Giants, but ultimately decided to sign with the Redskins, who are banged up all over their defense but especially in the secondary.Bruton and linebacker Sua Cravens were concussed Sunday against the Browns, and cornerbacks Bashaud Breeland and Dashaun Phillips missed the game with injuries. Safety DeAngelo Hall is out for the season with a torn ACL in his right knee.Coach Jay Gruden said the decisions to put Bruton on IR and release Reyes had to do with the bevy of injuries Washington is dealing with and the lack of available roster spots.Obviously Dontes resume speaks for itself, Gruden said. He brings some veteran leadership and knowledge of the position, and were hoping that he can fill in quickly.Whitner said its his goal to study the playbook and be ready to play Sunday at the Baltimore Ravens. His new teammates arent worried about him getting up to speed in time, as receiver Pierre Garcon described Whitner as a plug-and-play type of guy.Hes been around for a long time, Garcon said. You dont have to explain everything down to details. He just knows. Hes been there, hes been around and he has the experience.Linebacker Will Compton said he grew up watching Whitner and likes that he brings a physicality mindset to the defense. Whitner considers himself a professional hitter, and his reputation precedes him.I dont think you lose that explosiveness or you learn how to want contact or physical contract overnight, Whitner said.Thats why they call me `Hitner. Thats why my name is `Hitner because thats what I like to do. I dont think you lose that.Signing Whitner and Evans fills holes at safety, but Washington still looks thin on the defensive line after Kedric Golston was lost for the season with a hamstring injury and Reyes was released.Gruden said it wasnt anything Reyes, a free agent signing in the offseason, did wrong as much as it was a numbers game.We felt like the guys in-house at the defensive line position were adequate and playing good enough and it was a spot that was expendable, basically, Gruden said.Game notes CB Josh Norman said he was fined $10,000 by the NFL for his bow and arrow celebration Sunday and that hes appealing. ... Gruden said Breeland (ankle), linebacker Cravens (concussion), WR Josh Doctson (Achilles) and CB Dashaun Phillips (hamstring) did not practice. LB Ryan Kerrigan (elbow), G Shawn Lauvao (ankle), DE Chris Baker (toe) and LT Trent Williams (knee) were limited. Gruden said theres a chance Breeland plays against the Ravens and has no idea if Cravens will be available.---AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and AP NFL Twitter feed: www.twitter.com/AP-NFL Cheap Sua Cravens Jersey . -- Teemu Selanne scored the first goal of his 22nd NHL season, and the Anaheim Ducks extended the best start in franchise history with their fifth straight victory, 3-2 over the Calgary Flames on Wednesday night. Wholesale Redskins Jerseys .Y. -- Leading 3-0 with only 11:25 left, the Colorado Avalanche committed a seemingly meaningless penalty to give the New York Islanders a power play. http:///...errelle-pryor-jersey . Blackwood, 28, has played the last three seasons in the San Diego Padres system, including the past two summers with Class AA San Antonio of the Texas League. Before the season, UCLA had the young, hot-shot quarterback that had the college football world -- and NFL scouts -- buzzing.Now, USC does.Redshirt freshman Sam Darnold is at the forefront of a Trojans resurgence that reached a peak with Saturdays 26-13 victory at previously undefeated Washington, which was No. 4 in the country. Darnold completed 22 of 33 passes for 287 yards -- the most allowed by the Huskies this season -- and two touchdowns.Darnold gets a different kind of stage this Saturday night.USC (7-3, 6-2 Pac-12) has its first six-game winning streak since 2008 as it heads into a game against struggling crosstown rival UCLA (4-6, 2-5) at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, Calif. The 10:30 p.m. ET kickoff makes it just the 11th night game in the history of the series.The Bruins are without sophomore quarterback Josh Rosen, the former No. 1 quarterback recruit who has missed four games because of a shoulder injury and wont return this season. Darnold has replaced him as the L.A. star.USC coach Clay Helton inserted Darnold as the starter, replacing Max Browne, for the fourth game of the season. The Trojans lost that day, 31-27 at Utah when the defense allowed a touchdown in the final minute, but it has been all victories since then, riding the spark that Darnold provided.He is the reigning Pac-12 Offensive Player of the Week for his performance against the Huskies, who have one of the top defensive backfields in the country. Darnold is eighth nationally in passer rating with a rating of 165.8.He has just unbelievable game maturity, Helton said.The Bruins, who are still pushing for a bowl, did end a four-game skid by beating visiting Oregon State last weekend 38-24.Its good to get a win, said Bruins coach Jim Mora. They have been hard to come by this year. These guys have stayed together and have kept a great attitude. So, they got rewarded for it. That was great.Mora said he has given away only two game balls in his nearly five seasons at UCLA. The second went to quarterback Mike Fafaul on Saturday.Fafaul, starting his fourth game in place of Rosen, completed 25 of 47 passes for 281 yards. Mora praised the fifth-year senior for sticking it out and not transferring as a graduate student.He played behind Brett (Hundley), and then Josh got the job, and he has hungg in there, Mora said. Cheap Josh Doctson Jersey. Hes everything that you want in a quarterback in terms of studying the game and it being serious to him. Its just great.Fafauls challenge this week against USC will be much more difficult than it was against Oregon State. The Trojans held Washington quarterback Jake Browning to 17-of-36 passing with a pair of interceptions by cornerback Adoree Jackson.Fafaul has thrown 10 interceptions in 198 attempts, and if the Trojans could fluster Browning, what will they do to Fafaul?Darnold has had the advantage of a supporting run game -- Ronald Jones II has 487 yards on the ground in the past three games -- an All-American talent at wide receiver in junior JuJu Smith-Schuster and a veteran offensive line that has begun to play to its potential.Fafaul has had none of that. UCLAs young line has struggled, there is no game-breaker on the outside and the Bruins are second-to-last nationally in rushing at 87.2 yards per game. UCLA gave carries to five scholarship running backs last week and will try to find hot feet this week from among Bolu Olorunfunmi, Soso Jamabo, Jalen Starks, Nate Starks and Brandon Stephens.It wont be easy. USC held Washington to 17 rushing yards.Big men win the game, Helton said. On both sides of the ball, our big men are really excelling these last six weeks.UCLAs hopes rest with a solid defense that has allowed only one opponent (Utah) to score more than 27 points in regulation. Defensive end Takkarist McKinley leads the nation with 2.0 tackles per loss per game.The rivalry game wraps up the conference season for USC, which finishes at home against Notre Dame. The Trojans are a half-game behind Colorado and hold a head-to-head tiebreaker. The Buffaloes, 6-1 in the league, finish with two games against ranked teams -- Washington State and Utah.USC needs to win Saturday and have Colorado lose to have a chance to win the Pac-12 South. Utah, which is 5-2 in the Pac-12 with games left against Oregon and Colorado, holds the tiebreaker over USC.The Trojans have won 13 of the past 17 games against UCLA, although two of the victories were vacated due to NCAA sanctions. USC won 40-21 last season. Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
