    Getty Las Vegas Raiders tight end Darren Waller. The Las Vegas Raiders had to hold their breath against the Dallas Cowboys when star tight end Darren Waller was forced out of the game with an injury. Luckily, he only had a strained IT band, which isn’t bad considering the alternatives. However, he still could miss some time due to the injury. Waller missed practice for the Raiders all week as he nurses the injury. On Friday, interim head coach Rich Bisaccia announced that the tight end will be doubtful for Sunday’s matchup against the Washington Football Team. Waller is a very important part of the offense so it’ll be a blow if he can’t end up playing. That said, the Raiders pulled off a win against the Cowboys last week despite Waller missing most of the game. The team also beat the Philadelphia Eagles earlier in the season in a game where the tight end didn’t even suit up. Obviously, the Raiders would much rather have him on the field if possible but it’s not a guaranteed loss...
    Getty Tom Brady is awaiting the return of two of his biggest weapons. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers do not sound optimistic that either Antonio Brown or Rob Gronkowski will be on the field when the team resumes play against the Washington Football Team on November 14. Bucs head coach Bruce Arians confirmed that Brown is still in a walking boot, indicating that he is unlikely to play in Week 10. “Yes. Yes, he’s still in the boot,” Arians said of Brown during his November 8 press conference. Arians added that he still has concern for both Brown and Gronkowksi’s injuries. The Bucs coach implied that both players stand a good chance to be held out once again against Washington. “I think you still have to worry a little bit about Gronk (Rob Gronkowski) and I don’t know if A.B. (Antonio Brown) is going to make it back,” Arians added. “And Carlton [Davis] will stay on IR. We’ll see if those other two guys are game-ready. It’s one thing to practice, it’s another thing to throw...

    Liz Hurley had son, Damian, on task for viral bikini pic shoots, more news Facebook’s very, very bad day: Services go dark and stock plunges in wake of whistleblower revelations Washington State football coach Nick Rolovich may have ran out of time to save his job. The Cougars coach declined once again on Monday to say whether or not he had been vaccinated against COVID-19 — something that is required for Washington state employees. The deadline for state employees to be fully vaccinated is Oct. 18, which means that Rolovich needed to receive his second dose of the shot by Monday. Yet when he was asked about that by reporters on Monday, he once again declined to answer specifically. “I’m still following the process as it’s laid out,” he said simply. He was then asked whether or not Cougars fans should be worried about his job security in two weeks. “I don’t think so,” he replied. #WSU’s Nick Rolovich asked if Cougar fans should be concerned about him being the team’s coach after Oct. 18. “I don’t think...

    With Philadelphia 76ers big man Joel Embiid listed as doubtful for Game 5 against Washington, fans are having a meltdown on social media.  Some rough news has arrived for the Philadelphia 76ers, as Joel Embiid’s knee issues are acting up again right in the middle of the postseason.

    There’s good news and bad news for the Washington Wizards when it comes to shooting guard Bradley Beal and his injured hamstring. The Washington Wizards can let go of the breath they’ve been holding since Bradley Beal had to exit Saturday’s game against the Indiana Pacers with a hamstring injury. Beal’s MRI came back with good results. The scan ruled out “significant injury,” according to Sham Charania of The Athletic and Stadium. However, he won’t be able to play on Monday against the Atlanta Hawks and it’s not clear if he will be available to play in the final three games of the regular season. With the playoffs fast approaching, concern will linger over Beal’s availability.The Wizards need Bradley Beal healthy for the home stretch and playoffsDespite Beal coming out of the game during overtime, the Wizards beat the Pacers on Saturday while riding Russell Westbrook’s record-tying triple-double. Beal had 50 points before his exit. It’s hard to imagine the Wizards having much of a chance in the postseason without Beal. He’s averaging 31.4 points per game while taking the...
    New York : “We spoke briefly about the hearing on April 14, status. A very good conversion, ”said the commissioner. But to questions from El Nuevo Día about whether Lamborn, who is visiting the island for the first time, will support his statehood project for Puerto Rico, he replied that “that was not the topic” of the meeting. “On this trip he learned much more about the status of Puerto Rico,” he said. “We talk about the situation on the island, we talk about the energy situation, energy costs in Puerto Rico. The congressman served with Governor Pedro Pierluisi in the Natural Resources Committee in the past, so they have known each other for many years and he was making visits to the different monuments of the National Park Services, El Yunque, Para La Naturaleza, as well as the the rest of the facilities of the Department of the Interior, because they are part of the jurisdiction of the Natural Resources Committee, ”González said.

    Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell and Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez are usually political opposites. But they're aligned on one issue: Puerto Rico statehood. McConnell, a senator from Kentucky, is aligned with a faction of Republicans in Congress that opposes statehood for the Caribbean island, which a bipartisan group of lawmakers is trying to make happen through the Puerto Rico Statehood Admission Act that was introduced in the House this week. In McConnell's view, making Puerto Rico a state would deliver a Democratic representative and two additional Democratic senators, comparable to the Democratic push to make Washington, D.C., a state. Ocasio-Cortez, the far-left Democratic congresswoman from New York, has her own reasons for skepticism about Puerto Rico statehood. It's not a given that Puerto Rico would be a Democratic stronghold, she noted. The island currently sends to Washington "a representative, a delegate, that caucuses with the Republican Party,” Ocasio-Cortez told the Washington Examiner, in reference to Jenniffer Gonzalez Colon, who is the resident commissioner of Puerto Rico. "I'd hope that no one is supporting this out of a partisan basis or...
    Fireworks explode over the Lincoln Memorial and the Washington Monument, as seen from Arlington, Va., Wednesday, Jan. 20, 2021. (AP Photo/Cliff Owen) The Washington Monument will remain close indefinitely to the public to protect staff and visitors from COVID-19, the National Park Service (NPS) said Saturday. The monument closed on Jan. 11 as part of security measures around President Joe Biden’s inauguration. NPS said they would be keeping an eye on the public health conditions in the D.C. area and other indoor attractions’ operating status to determine when it would be safe to reopen. Along with the Washington Monument, all indoor attractions managed as part of the National Mall and Memorial Parks — such as the Belmont-Paul Women’s Equality National Monument, Ford’s Theatre National Historic Site and tours of the Old Post Office Tower — have also been closed. Updates to the monument’s operating status will be posted online and to the National Park Service’s social media pages.

    New York (CNN Business)Videos of belligerent passengers at airports — some donning pro-Trump outfits — being forced off planes or denied boarding are circulating widely on social media, with many users describing the scenes as airport officials informing people that participated in the Capitol riot that they're on a no-fly list. But that's not necessarily the case.Though at least one member of Congress and airline worker unions have called for known riot participants to be put on the FBI-managed no-fly list, which is designed to prevent known and suspected terrorists from getting airline tickets, it's not clear if that step has been taken. The FBI did not respond to a request for comment. Federal officials and DC police are still working to identify and track down many of the rioters, though at least 20 federal criminal defendants have been arrested across the country.When a person is put on the federal no-fly list, they would be stopped or undergo additional screening before going through a TSA checkpoint, according to the TSA.Read MoreThat means the widely circulated footage of angry travelers being...
    Getty Daniel Jones #8 of the New York Giants looks to hand off the ball during the second half against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Daniel Jones was itching to take the field this past Sunday. Yet, it was New York Giants head coach Joe Judge who ultimately opted against trotting out his hobbled 23-year-old perceived franchise signal-caller. Veteran Colt McCoy stepped in and stepped up in place of Jones, helping the G-Men hand the Seattle Seahawks their first home loss of the season, while simultaneously inching closer to an NFC East title. Now, with an off week under his belt and a crucial NFC bout with the Arizona Cardinals on deck, signs are pointing towards the Giants getting their quarterback in time for a late-season playoff push.

    Washington (CNN)Nearly all Navy installations in the continental US are having their health protection measures against Covid-19 tightened Tuesday to protect the force and military families, according to a US Navy official. All installations with the exception of the Naval Air Station at Fallon in the remote Nevada desert will institute stronger measures at Health Protection Condition Level "Charlie," just one step below the most stringent level.While commanders can make detailed decisions about their bases, under the so-called Charlie measures schools, daycares and community activities may be canceled. It also introduces travel restrictions and more personnel may be ordered to work from home. Family activities may also be restricted to homes for a prolonged period of time under the new measures. The new measures, which some bases began instituting earlier this month, come as coronavirus cases surge across the US, including within the US military. CNN reported last week that the military reported a record high number of cases last Tuesday, with 1,314 new infections, according to Defense Department statistics.Read MoreAs of last week there were about 25,000 active Covid-19...

    By SALLY HO, Associated Press SEATTLE (AP) — A candidate for state education chief in Washington state who claimed to operate a nonprofit now says her organization does not actually have federal tax-exempt status. Maia Espinoza, who is challenging incumbent Chris Reykdal in the November election to become the state superintendent of public instruction, made the clarification Wednesday after repeated inquiries from The Associated Press. Espinoza is founder and executive director of the Center for Latino Leadership, which claims on its website it is “an incorporated, nonprofit organization in Washington State operating under section 501(c)3 of the Internal Revenue Code.” The 501(c)3 tax-exemption is reserved for public charities that serve the public interest. It allows verified nonprofits to be exempted from paying federal income tax, and to collect tax-deductible contributions from donors. In exchange, 501(c)3 organizations are prohibited from making profits, participating in expressly political activities, among other limitations, and must adhere to strict reporting requirements, including having a 990 tax filing available for public review. Espinoza declined to provide an equivalent tax filing for her organization and said she...
    Nine House Democrats voted with Republicans to end Washington, DC’s sanctuary city status as a condition for statehood. As the House prepared to vote on H.R. 51 — the Washington, DC, Admission Act — Rep. Fred Keller (R-PA) offered a motion to recommit.

    House Democrats blocked a motion on Friday that would require Washington, DC, to eliminate its sanctuary city status if it were to become a state. Rep. Fred Keller (R-PA) introduced a motion to recommit H.R. 51 — the Washington, D.C. Admission Act — which would allow the District of Columbia to become the 51st state in the Union.

    All lives actually do matter. A sports announcer last week lost his job for using the phrase “all lives matter” instead of “black lives matter.” Our cultural superiors insist on certain phraseology these days, or else. It is just another effort in the culture war to make you care and think in particular ways. The phrase “all lives matter” came about in pushback to aggressive efforts a few years ago by Black Lives Matter activists. This statement of fact is now presumed to be a calling card of white supremacists. On Tuesday, people rushed to social media to add black squares. Major corporations shut down their websites. People protested in the streets. I saw more than one person shamed for innocently using the phrase “all lives matter” or, as a worse offense, putting up a picture other than a black square on Instagram. We have replaced virtue with virtue signaling. Activists would have us believe the government that brought us slavery, Jim Crow, anti-interracial marriage laws, affirmative action and police brutality is the government that will solve the problem.

    Active-duty U.S. troops are on “short alert status” at bases outside the District of Columbia, Pentagon officials said Tuesday, but so far forces have not mobilized in any other region of the country following President Trump’s threat to use the full weight of the American military to quell riots and violent protests. Pentagon officials told reporters that the military’s response to the demonstrations, including in Washington, so far has centered on National Guard troops. At least 1,300 National Guard personnel are on duty in Washington, with additional forces from Utah and New Jersey also activated. Reinforcements from Indiana, South Carolina and Tennessee are expected to arrive Tuesday, officials said. But so far there’s been little in the way of preparations to deploy active-duty forces anywhere in the country, with the exception of Washington. A Defense Department official said the forces arrived in the capital region yesterday and are staged at bases outside of the District.
