    Getty Images Rashard Higgins of the Cleveland Browns. Rashard Higgins was a healthy scratch for the Cleveland Browns on Sunday against the Baltimore Ravens, which was a surprising move considering the team’s depth at the wide receiver position. Without Higgins, the Browns relied on Donovan Peoples-Jones, Ja’Marcus Bradley, JoJo Natson and Jarvis Landry to carry the load. Quarterback Baker Mayfield passed for 247 yards and a score, with the majority of the work going to Landry. However, it became obvious that the Browns were missing that explosion in the passing game to exploit the Ravens’ game plan, which featured eight-plus players in the box for most of the night. Higgins has been one of Mayfield’s favorite targets since he took over under center but was not there on Sunday when the fourth-year QB would have welcomed a familiar face. Kevin Stefanski spoke on Higgins’ absence while addressing the media on Monday and said it came down to special teams. Bradley has a small role on special teams, playing six snaps on punt and kick return. He played 10...
    Getty Images Browns receiver Rashard Higgins. Rashard Higgins will not suit for the Cleveland Browns on Sunday night against the Ravens, with the veteran pass-catcher going down as a healthy scratch. Higgins has just four catches since October 17 and has fallen out of the wide receiver rotation, even with Odell Beckham Jr. now out of the picture. It is not what he expected when re-signing with the team this offseason for more money than he could have received elsewhere. #Browns Rashard Higgins a healthy scratch tonight vs. the #Ravens. His season just hasn’t gone the way he or anyone expected. — Mary Kay Cabot (@MaryKayCabot) November 28, 2021 Higgins has just 15 catches for 185 yards and one touchdown this season. He played on 72 percent of the snaps last week in a 13-10 victory over Detroit but was taking on a starting role with Donovan Peoples-Jones out of the lineup. With the second-year wide receiver back on Sunday for the primetime tilt against the Ravens, Higgins was relegated to street clothes. Anthony Schwartz (concussion), fullback Andy...
    Houston Texans safety Justin Reid was "shocked" to learn he would be a healthy scratch in Sunday’s game against the New York Jets, a matchup that ended with Houston's ninth loss of the season. Reports before the game indicated that Reid would be a healthy scratch for violating team rules but the third-year starter told FOX26 Houston that he was told it was over a "disagreement" during a team meeting earlier in the week.  JAGUARS MASCOT STUNT GONE WRONG AHEAD FALCONS GAME "I thought the meeting went amicably, and then I came to practice Friday, and after practice was done he called me into his office and said he benched me for disciplinary reasons," Reid said.  Justin Reid (20) of the Houston Texans reacts after missing an interception during the first half against the New England Patriots at NRG Stadium on Oct. 10, 2021 in Houston.  (Photo by Carmen Mandato/Getty Images) "It is what it is.

    NEW ORLEANS (AP) — The New Orleans Saints scratched hobbled running back Mark Ingram, while left tackle Terron Armstead returned to the lineup against Buffalo on Thursday night, The Bills listed receiver and returner Isaiah McKenzie as a healthy scratch. Ingram entered the game as questionable because of a knee injury that limited him in practice this week. Fullback Alex Armah is a healthy scratch as the Saints have decided to go with a backfield of Tony Jones Jr., Dwayne Washington and newly acquired Adam Prentice, who was elevated from the practice squad. New Orleans already had ruled out running back Alvin Kamara (knee), right tackle Ryan Ramzcyk (knee), and defensive ends Marcus Davneport (shoulder) and Tanoh Kpassagnon (ankle). Armstead, who also was listed as questionable after missing the last two games with knee and shoulder injuries, had returned to practice this week. Reserve quarterback Ian Book was the other Saints scratch. All of the Bills’ lineup scratches were healthy players. McKenzie, who fumble a kickoff return deep in Buffalo territory last week, is inactive because of...
    Getty Giants LB Oshane Ximines. Elerson Smith, who was dubbed the “best day 3 pick” in last April’s NFL Draft and a “Jason Taylor clone” by Ourlads scout David Syvertsen is finally set for his NFL debut. The New York Giants officially activated the rookie pass rusher on Saturday, November 6th. Smith was originally placed on injured reserve in September due to a hamstring injury. The team also elevated two players to their active roster, calling up linebacker Trent Harris and wide receiver/return specialist Pharoh Cooper from their practice squad. This marks the second consecutive week Harris has been added to the gameday roster. In Week 8’s loss to the Kansas City Chiefs, the Miami (FL) product recorded one solo tackle on seven defensive snaps. As for Cooper, Sunday’s tilt against the Las Vegas Raiders will mark his first game action of the 2021 season. A former fourth-round pick of the Los Angeles Rams, Cooper was signed to the Giants’ practice squad on November 3rd. The former 2017 Pro Bowler and first-team All-Pro selection is expected to factor into the...

    Getty Images Browns defensive tackle Andrew Billings. Veteran defensive tackle Andrew Billings will not suit up for the Cleveland Browns against the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday, with his absence going down as a healthy scratch. Billings was initially slated to be the starter out of camp but the unexpected emergence of Malik McDowell changed that. Billings was criticized for being out of shape during mandatory minicamp and was not able to carve out a niche in the rotation, even with his run-stopping ability. He played 22 defensive snaps through the first five weeks of the season but seemed to gain some momentum with 21 snaps last week. Billings record his only tackle of the season last week. Billings, who is listed at 6-foot-1, 328 pounds, sat out all of last season due to COVID-19 concerns. Billings collected 35 tackles and one sack as a starter with the Bengals in 2019. The 26-year-old had notched a below-average grade of 49.5 via Pro Football Focus and has collected just one sack. The Browns added Sheldon Day to the active roster...
    BOSTON (CBS) — In his NFL debut, Rhamondre Stevenson fumbled the football and got blown up in pass protection. In Week 2, the rookie running back will be a spectator. Stevenson was on the inactive list for the Patriots on Sunday, as they face the New York Jets in the Meadowlands. With no listing on the injury report this week, that makes Stevenson a healthy scratch. The fourth-round pick out of Oklahoma led the entire NFL in preseason rushing yards and touchdowns, but his regular-season debut was less successful. He had one rush for two yards, and one reception for nine yards, while losing a fumble near midfield in the first quarter. Later in the first half, Stevenson was knocked backward by Elandon Roberts, who continued into the backfield and delivered a low hit on Mac Jones — one which drew a penalty. Stevenson took just five offensive snaps in that game, leading the team to rely heavily on Damien Harris, who himself fumbled late in the game to help contribute to the loss. Stevenson’s spot on the inactive list...
    Getty Las Vegas Raiders DE Clelin Ferrell. The Las Vegas Raiders started off the season with a massive win over the Baltimore Ravens but there are still some major questions to come from the game. One thing that stood out prior to kickoff was that defensive end Clelin Ferrell was listed inactive as a healthy scratch. He was the No. 4 overall in 2019 and has already fallen down the depth chart. Not even getting the opportunity to play would be a very bad sign. However, there could be more to the story. Ferrell has been banged up over the last couple of weeks and has missed a number of practices. He was listed as a full participant all last week and didn’t have an injury designation heading into the game but head coach Jon Gruden claimed that he was held out due to his health. “Back ailments. His time’s coming. He’ll return to the lineup, probably this week,” Gruden told reporters on Monday. Ferrell hasn’t been the player the team hoped he would be but he doesn’t...

    Embattled NFL quarterback Deshaun Watson will not play for the Houston Texans in Sunday’s season opener against the Jacksonville Jaguars and is expected not to play for Houston at all this season as trade talks heat up, reports say.  Watson, who is currently facing 22 civil lawsuits alleging sexual misconduct and 10 criminal complaints, will be a healthy scratch against the Jaguars but according to ESPN, the Texans do not plan to play the veteran quarterback at all this season. TEXANS TAKING DESHAUN WATSON’S STATUS ‘ONE DAY AT A TIME,’ GM SAYS Instead, Houston is eyeing a big trade for Watson -- according to the report, general manager Nick Caserio will not accept any deal for less than six players and draft picks combined.  A bold request for now but as the trade deadline of Nov. 2 looms, there are several teams that could be interested depending on how their quarterbacks fare.

    BOSTON (CBS) — Jake DeBrusk has scored just four goals all season. He’s potted just one in the month of April — a 13-game stretch during which he’s recorded just three assists, too. And so, for the second time since early March, DeBrusk will be a healthy scratch for the Bruins.

    Nomadland, Rocks lead notably more diverse BAFTA noms Bond Yields Slide Ahead of Key Treasury Auctions; Inflation Gauges Ease With the taxi squad traveling and available this season, the NHL has seen its fair share of high-profile players scratched even when healthy. Coaches have this new weapon to try and motivate those who may not be playing their best, and we’ve seen names like Jeff Skinner, Zach Parise and Sam Bennett all forced to the (virtual) press box for a time. Tuesday, another underperforming winger joins that group. The Boston Bruins will make Jake DeBrusk a healthy scratch against the New York Islanders. © Winslow Townson-USA TODAY Sports Boston Bruins left wing Jake DeBrusk DeBrusk, 24, has been a shadow of himself this season, scoring just a single goal in 17 games. His five points aren’t going to cut it on a team that has plans for a deep playoff run, so head coach Bruce Cassidy will take him out of the lineup. It’s not just production that has been lacking in DeBrusk’s case, but effort too, as Cassidy...
    BOSTON (CBS) — Jake DeBrusk will be a spectator when the Bruins take on the New York Islanders on Tuesday night. The winger is a healthy scratch for Boston’s tilt, head coach Bruce Cassidy announced Tuesday morning. DeBrusk is marred in a season-long slump, and Cassidy is hoping that a night out of the lineup will provide a good wake-up call for the 24-year-old. He specifically called out DeBrusk’s efforts when he announced the player’s night off with reporters. READ MORE: Northeastern University Planning For Normal Fall Semester “We’ve tried different angles with Jake. He’s met one-on-one with myself, he’s met with coaches one-on-one. He’s talked to some of the veteran guys. At the end of the day, we’re not quite getting out of Jake what we want,” said Cassidy. “Some of that is circumstance and situational; he’s move around and been hurt. “But I still feel he’s been given ice time to perform to the best of his ability and we feel we’re not getting the effort we require,” added Cassidy. “It’s not always about the scoresheet; it’s about...

According to Michael Russo of The Athletic, Zach Parise will be made a healthy scratch.

    Emma Watson isnt retiring from acting — despite what you may have heard online The 10 Best Companies for Working Moms Often, a big regulation win can calm the sea for a team that’s trying to bail water from a sinking ship. The Buffalo Sabres got that kind of a win on Tuesday night when they dispatched the New Jersey Devils 4-1. Still, it took 41 saves from Linus Ullmark, and there still wasn’t a goal from their two top forwards. Their ankles, at least, still seem to be submerged. © Timothy T. Ludwig-USA TODAY Sports Buffalo Sabres left wing Jeff Skinner Thursday, after sitting out the last three games as a healthy scratch, Jeff Skinner was absent from the morning skate. The $72M man seems completely forgotten by head coach Ralph Krueger, who denied having a “doghouse” but didn’t share any real insight on the situation. Lance Lysowski of the Buffalo News reports that Skinner’s agent, Don Meehan of Newport Sports, had a “lengthy conversation” on Wednesday with Sabres GM Kevyn Adams, expressing his concerns over the situation....
    Heres the biggest news you missed this weekend UKs PM eyes end to lockdown as vaccines reach one-third of adults The Buffalo Sabres were hoping that after Jeff Skinner signed his eight-year, $72 million deal back in 2019 that he was going to continue to put up big numbers. After all, the forward was coming off a 40-goal season in 2018-19. However, he struggled season, putting up just 14 goals in 59 games and now has failed to score this season in 14 contests. © Timothy T. Ludwig-USA TODAY Sports Despite playing a season-low 11:22 against New Jersey on Saturday, Jeff Skinner he had four shots, which tied a season high. With the Sabres in last place in the East Division with just five wins, head coach Ralph Krueger is looking to make some changes. After Henri Jokiharju and Tage Thompson were benched on Saturday, the Buffalo News’ Mike Harrington writes that Krueger is now focusing on Skinner.

    Christopher Plummer Dead at 91: Celebs Mourn Sound of Music Star Your Top 5 Social Security Questions of the Year Despite healthy scratch, Sam Bennett trade not imminent? As if there weren’t enough whispers surrounding Calgary Flames forward Sam Bennett, his healthy scratch on Thursday night did not help. The news emerged well ahead of the Flames’ game on Thursday that Bennett would not play, and TSN’s Darren Dreger reports that speculation swelled across the league that this implied Bennett was available for trade.  © Sergei Belski-USA TODAY Sports Sam Bennett's healthy scratch on Thursday night enhanced trade rumors. Bennett’s play has improved of late, and the player himself even told the media that the scratch came as a surprise. However, with Bennett wanting out of Calgary — but he would not confirm a formal trade request — perhaps the Flames want to look at other internal options who could take Bennett’s place, as well as protect the health of their trade asset.  With that said, Dreger warns not to get too excited. He says a trade is certainly not...

Philadelphia Flyers coach Alain Vigneault provided a big example of that in making Travis Konecny a healthy scratch on Saturday. © Getty Images Again, from a sheer hockey perspective, it’s a bad decision to healthy scratch Travis Konecny. Apologies, but that’s especially true when it means swapping out Konecny for Samuel Morin. But what about “sending a message?” Your mileage will vary. Flyers’ Vigneault boldly makes Konecny a healthy scratch In Alain Vigneault’s eyes, making Konecny a healthy scratch is a wake-up call — to the player, and maybe to the Flyers as a whole.

He's been bad, and with the way the Ravens rotate their backs (plus Lamar Jackson's running ability), his upside is capped. VERDICT: Drop him He had 15 total touchdowns last season with 10 coming on the ground and five through the air. He ran for 1080 yards alongside Lamar Jackson and was a key cog in the scariest rushing attack in the NFL. Fast forward to today and he’s not even playing for the Ravens. He hasn’t in weeks. And, according to the latest report from ESPN’s Adam Schefter, he’ll be a healthy scratch again on Saturday when the Ravens face the Bills in the playoffs....

Fournette wasn't listed on the injury report heading into the Week 14 matchup. NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reports Fournette is a healthy scratch.

Fournette has just one 100-yard game and totaled fewer than 10 carries in each of his last four contests.

    Getty Austin Mack #81 runs drills at NY Giants Quest Diagnostics Training Center. Tantalizing rookie wide receiver Austin Mack was slated to make his NFL debut in Week 4…until he wasn’t. The former Ohio State University standout was promoted from the New York Giants‘ practice squad to their active roster on October 3rd, a day prior to Big Blue’s bout against the Los Angeles Rams. However come game time, rather than donning the Giants’ white and red road unis for the first time, Mack was draped in street clothes, as the wideout was deemed inactive. The day after Sunday’s 17-9 loss at the hands of the Rams, Mack was removed from the team’s active roster, returning to the Giants’ practice squad. There have been some rumblings of Mack’s ascension to the active roster being a ploy by New York to keep him away from other teams who may have shown interest in signing the wideout, although that has yet to be confirmed. Mack’s presence in the Giants’ Week 4 loss certainly wouldn’t have hurt. New York’s passing attack...
    VEGANS have the worst diets, a study suggests. The more they avoided meat, butter, cheese and milk, the more processed foods they consumed. 1Vegans have the worst diets as they eat more processed foods, a study suggestsCredit: Getty - Contributor They are also less likely to cook from scratch. A poll found microwave meals, pastries, cakes, sugary drinks and cereals made up 39 per cent of a vegan’s diet. For veggies it was 37 per cent and 33 per cent for meat eaters. Previous studies linked processed food to heart disease and cancer. The team at Sorbonne University in Paris polled more than 21,000 adults. Researchers said processed foods included ‘industrial plant-based meat substitutes’ – such as veggie burgers – made with flavouring agents, colourings and other chemicals. In a report on the findings they warned vegan and vegetarian diets may be much less healthy than consumers think – especially as they are likely to lead to an increase in snacking. ‘Not all vegetarian diets necessarily have health benefits,’ they said.
