IRVINE, Calif. Falcons Jerseys China . -- Veteran defensive lineman Quinton Coples was released Monday by the Los Angeles Rams, who are trimming their roster from 90 to 75 players.Coples was a first-round pick by the New York Jets in 2012 and was transitioning from defensive end to defensive tackle during training camp. Through the first two preseason games, the 26-year-old compiled four tackles, forced two fumbles and recorded a sack.A 6-foot-6, 290-pound lineman, Coples played three-plus seasons with the Jets and about half a season with the Miami Dolphins, compiling 16? career sacks.Rams coach Jeff Fisher said he wanted to give him a chance and give him an opportunity to get out there early to see if he could find work. If not, were going to keep the door open for him.I really appreciated everything that he did, Fisher said of Coples. Going from end to tackle, if youve never been in there, is quite a change. He worked really hard at it.The Rams have yet to formally announce their first cuts. But several of them came through the NFL transactions wire on Monday, a list that includes quarterback Dylan Thompson, kicker Taylor Bertolet, tight ends Jake Stoneburner and Benson Browne, receivers Marquez North and David Richards, running back Zach Laskey, long-snapper Jeff Overbaugh, tackle Jordan Swindle, linebacker Darreon Herring, center Brian Folkerts, defensive tackle Zach Colvin and defensive back Michael Caputo.The team was still waiting on one more cut before the 4 p.m. ET Tuesday deadline.

Lucic scored on a power play at 15:46 of the third period, when he tipped a shot over Stars goalie Kari Lehtonen for a 3-1 lead. Cheap Atlanta Falcons Jerseys . -- The goal posts lying flat on the field, Arizonas fans lingered on the field, congregating around the locker room entrance nearly 30 minutes after rushing out of the stands. http://www.cheapfalconsjerseysauthentic.com/?tag=authentic-ito-smith-jersey . -- There were a lot of firsts for the Edmonton Oilers on Tuesday night. CLEVELAND -- Surrounded by his infielders, Rick Porcello stared at the ground in disbelief.In a dizzying span of nine pitches, the Cleveland Indians had rocked him for three home runs in the third inning.Bostons ace never quite recovered.The Red Sox didnt either.Francisco Lindors homer capped Clevelands three-homer rampage off the 22-game winner, and the Indians held on for a 5-4 win on Thursday night in their AL Division Series opener.Lindor, Jason Kipnis and Robert Perez went deep in the third off Porcello, who lasted 4 1/3 innings in his shortest outing this year as the Indians landed the first shot in the best-of-5 series against David Ortiz and the AL East champions.Thats never how you want to start off a playoff series, Porcello said. It is what it is.Porcellos shaky start made it tough on the Red Sox, who got home runs from Brock Holt , rookie Andrew Benintendi and Sandy Leon but couldnt get the big hit when they need one late.Boston had chances, but stranded the tying run at third in the eighth when Cleveland closer Cody Allen struck out Xander Bogaerts to end the inning. The Red Sox put a runner on with two outs in the ninth, but Allen fanned Dustin Pedroia on a full-count checked-swing , his 40th pitch, for the save.Pedroia was livid at first base umpire Phil Cuzzis call, and Red Sox manager John Farrell went onto the field to question plate umpire Brian Knight.It was a check swing at a ball in the dirt, Farrell said. At real-time, its a borderline call. After you get a chance to look at video, he swung.Pedroia fired his helmet in disgust as he went to the dugout but later said he overreacted.I went, but I just was frustrated with the situation, said Pedroia, who went 1 for 5 and struck out three times. Ill apologize to Phil tomorrow for giving him a piece of my mind.Indians manager Terry Francona, who won two World Series with Boston, went to his bullpen early. Andrew Miller, acquired by Cleveland in a July trade for an October night like this, pitched two scoreless innings for the win. Summoned by Francona in the fifth, the lefty struck out Ortiz with two on to end the fifth and threw a season-high 40 pitches.Ortiz went 1 for 4 with a double in the first game of his final postseason.Boston turns to David Price in Game 2 in the shadows Friday afternoon against Cleveland ace Corey Kluber. Price is 0-7 in postseason starts and unless he comes up big, Big Papi could be closer to saying his last goodbbye. Wholesale Atlanta Falcons Jerseys. Clevelands barrage off Porcello in the third was breathtaking.Perez started the salvo with just his second homer in 82 at-bats at home this season. One out later, Kipnis drove a pitch over the wall in right-center, giving Cleveland a 3-2 lead and sending the raucous crowd of 37,763 into delirium. Kipnis had just finished getting a celebratory ride through the dugout when Lindors shot to right barely cleared a leaping attempt by Mookie Betts.Porcello was clearly rocked by the barrage, and as Progressive Field shook, he was visited by Pedroia and others who tried to rally their ace.On those three home runs, you can spin it any way youd like to, Porcello said. But the bottom line is this: I threw the pitches that I thought would be the best pitches, and I couldnt keep them in the ballpark.Farrell attributed Porcellos outing to one of those nights.It was a combination of pitches up in the strike zone and a night where this ballpark played extremely small, Farrell said. Warm weather, the ball was carrying a lot. Uncharacteristic for Rick to be up in the strike zone as much as he was. We were probably about the sixth or seventh inning where there were two outs made on the ground. We were up in the strike zone and they made us pay for it.ODD SOX: The teams combined for an ALDS record-tying six home runs. ... Porcello allowed three homers in an inning for the initial time in the big leagues. He made his first postseason start since 2011, falling to 0-3 with a 5.66 ERA in nine career appearances. . Benintendi became the youngest Boston player to hit a home run in his playoff debut at 22 years, 92 days.TRAINERS ROOMRed Sox: All-Star knuckleballer Steven Wright, bothered by bursitis in his right shoulder for weeks, will pitch Saturday at Fenway Park. If all goes well, he will head to the Instructional League and could be added Bostons roster if the Red Sox advance.UP NEXTPrice is 0-7 in the postseason as a starter, a mark that has tarnished the five-time All-Stars splendid career. Kluber will be pitching on 10 days rest. He strained a quadriceps last month and the Indians skipped his last start to give him extra time.They faced each other in 34-degree weather on April 5. Price struck out 10. Kluber allowed four runs, including a two-run homer to Betts, as the Red Sox won 6-2. ' ' '
