    I, like everyone else, have been horrified by the accidental shooting of cinematographer Halyna Hutchins by actor Alec Baldwin on the set of the movie 'Rust' ever since I heard the news in October. When I saw the trailer for Alec's first one-on-one interview with ABC News anchor George Stephanopoulos, I had the same reaction that CNN journalist Andrew Kaczynski had. He tweeted 'I know it's TV, an industry in which I work, but I find something unseemly about this big promo/hoopla with graphics and dramatic sounds to talk about a woman's tragic death'. The dramatic trailer showcased itself more like a teaser for an upcoming fictional television show than of a famous actor's first sitdown amid a still-pending investigation into the tragic death of an innocent woman. It read tonally distasteful and a bit confusing. Last night, I sat down to watch the entire interview between George and Alec and not much of my opinion has changed. The dramatic trailer for Alec Baldwin's ABC News interview with George Stephanopoulos showcased itself more like a teaser for an upcoming fictional...
    BRITAIN might have better immunity to Omicron to help us avoid a terrifying surge like the one in South Africa, scientists say. Imperial College London experts say people in the UK have different – and probably better – protection from Covid which could keep the mutant strain at bay. 1The UK's huge vaccine rollout and boosters for all should shore up defences against Omicron (Pictured: A man getting boosted today in London)Credit: AP One of the biggest fears about Omicron is that it will be able to reinfect people who have been jabbed or already survived Covid. An early study by South Africa’s infectious disease institute found the reinfection risk may be 2.4 times higher than it was for the Wuhan variant. But this is based on a country where many people have not caught the dangerous Alpha or Delta variants and vaccination rates are low. Experts suggest our huge wave of Delta, the world’s toughest variant, and successful vaccine campaign will bolster our defences. Around six million Brits have been infected with Delta since it became dominant in late...
    A rise in COVID-19 cases. A drought that just won’t quit. Record-breaking gas prices. California’s hell of a 2021 is so, well, hellacious that it’s not even giving us the holidays to relax and regroup for what’s already shaping up to be a scary 2022. No wonder so many have left the Golden State for good, and so many more search Zillow for homes in Idaho or Tennessee or Texas. Let them leave. We need a California of fighters, not quitters. Of people not afraid to deal with epic problems, damn the odds. So as the next year looms, we need to figure out a new strategy on how to push forward instead of just sit — or quit. That’s why we should all learn to fight like Mexicans. Since California joined the United States 171 years ago, the struggles of my raza in search of the good life have served as the bass notes for California’s melody: deep, foundational, yet rarely appreciated. We’ve been usually overmatched against and underestimated by the powers that be — but our indomitable...
    British experts have sounded the alarm over a new Covid variant believed to have emerged in Botswana that is the most mutated version of the virus yet. Only 10 cases of the strain, which could be named 'Nu', have been detected so far. But it has already been spotted in three countries, suggesting the variant is more widespread.  It carries 32 mutations, many of which suggest it is highly transmissible and vaccine-resistant, and has more alterations to its spike protein than any other variant. Scientists said it may have emerged following a long-term infection in an HIV patient.  Changes to the spike make it difficult for current jabs to fight off, because they train the immune system to recognise an older version of this part of the virus.  Dr Tom Peacock, a virologist at Imperial College who first picked up on its spread, described the variant's combination of mutations as 'horrific'. He warned that B.1.1.529, its scientific name, had the potential to be 'worse than nearly anything else about' — including the world-dominant Delta strain.  Scientists told MailOnline, however,...
    Kyle Rittenhouse broke down describing the events leading up to the shooting of Joseph Rosenbaum as he testified at during his trial in Kenosha, Wisc., Circuit Court. Sean Krajacic-Pool/Getty Fight disinformation. Get a daily recap of the facts that matter. Sign up for the free Mother Jones newsletter.On November 10, three days into his trial, Kyle Rittenhouse took the witness stand in his own defense on murder charges stemming from his killing two men and wounding another with an assault weapon during the civil unrest in Kenosha, Wisconsin, in the wake of the 2020 police shooting of Jacob Blake. During his testimony, Rittenhouse was overcome with emotion. Wracked with sobs, he was unable to continue speaking. Whether you believe they were crocodile tears or a legitimate expression of remorse and horror, Rittenhouse’s breakdown marked a turning point in his controversial trial, and probably ensured that the jury would eventually acquit him on all counts—as it did on Friday. But the tears also highlighted a significant problem with the entire Rittenhouse case, which is that he should never have been on the...
    A music executive who filmed himself sexually assaulting women while they slept after breaking into their apartments has been sentenced to just four years in prison - a light sentence that left his victims outraged. Adam Lublin, 45, the former vice president of music entertainment firm AEG, was arrested two years ago and charged with sexually assaulting four women on several occasions between 2015 and 2019. Lublin, who has been out on $1.2million bail since his arrest in 2019, was given what some consider a relatively light punishment after pleading guilty earlier this year to two counts of second-degree burglary as a sexually motivated felony. He also pleaded guilty to two counts of first-degree sexual abuse. Manhattan Supreme Court Justice Laura Ward told the court that she decided to impose a four-year sentence after ‘multiple discussions with the prosecution and the defense,’ according to the New York Daily News. Adam Lublin, 45, the former executive for the music touring company AEG, is seen above during his sentencing on Monday at Manhattan Supreme Court in New York City Lublin was sentenced...
    MEN have always been my ­downfall. I fall in love easily and get hurt just as easily. By the age of 36, I was wise enough to recognise that someone being my lover and being the potential father of my children were two very ­different things. I always wanted to be a mother but I wanted to do it on my own terms. 3Writer Lucinda Hart chose to have her babies alone and says that being a single mum makes her a better parentCredit: Adj Brown 3Lucinda says 'If I had my children with IVF and a sperm donor there would be no man to consult or consider' The singer Adele has spoken about the breakdown of her marriage and how not seeing her son every day was not in the plan when she became a parent.

    Imposter syndrome has been linked with anxiety and feelings of low self-worth, but it might actually make you better at your job.  According to a new study, people with imposter syndrome who are less confident at work have better interpersonal skills, which can make for a better employee.   Imposter syndrome is the belief that one's own success in life isn't deserved or has been achieved through luck, rather than as a result of one's own efforts or skills.  People who suffer from the syndrome tend to think of themselves as a 'fraud' and fear that at any moment, everyone else will realise it too.  Imposter syndrome - an inability to believe that your success is deserved or has been achieved as a result of your own efforts or skills - may have interpersonal benefits in the workplace, reports a psychologist at MIT Sloan School of Management in Cambridge, Massachusetts (stock image of a woman with imposter syndrome) What is imposter syndrome? Imposter syndrome is the persistent inability to believe that your success is deserved or has been achieved as a result of your...
    On Thursday’s broadcast of MSNBC’s “MTP Daily,” Congressional Progressive Caucus Chair Rep. Pramila Jayapal (D-WA) responded to a question on what the administration or Congress should do on gas prices by stating that “It isn’t really that you have to reduce the gas price, what you have to do is reduce the costs for families” and that reducing cost “doesn’t have to be through lowering gas prices. That’s what I’m saying with Build Back Better. If we lower costs, that’s what a family is looking at.” Jayapal said that her constituents “are not talking about inflation, by the way. They’re talking about, hey, I don’t have enough money in my budget to pay for the things I need to pay for. And the reason I say it that way is because it’s really important to understand that if you’re on a fixed budget, as many people are, as I have been in my life, then what you’re always trying to do is balance what you have to spend with what you have in that budget. The way that we can...
    Fox News’ Greg Gutfeld went off Thursday defending Kyle Rittenhouse and arguing his vigilantism was the result of the government not stepping up. In response to all the commentary that Rittenhouse should not have gone to Kenosha in the first place, Gutfeld said, “The dead guys shouldn’t have gone there either. One was a convicted pedophile who again had anally raped a child. Another was a serial domestic abuser. They should not have been anywhere on a street, right?” He said Rittenhouse’s victims “deserved better from the government, but they didn’t deserve better from Kyle.” He did the right thing. He did what the government should have done, which was to make sure these dirtbags — these violent, disgusting dirtbags — weren’t roaming the streets. It is clear. They were looking for blood. Joy Reid saluted them, she said they were heroes! Gutfeld said all Rittenhouse did was “fill the void that the government left open” where citizens were “forced” to “become the police.” “And that is what happens when you defund,” he added. Gutfeld also slammed President Joe Biden for...
    The best golfers learn how to play the sport 'reversed' by switching hands when holding the club, a new study suggests.  From a sample of 150 golfers, researchers have found the successful players tend to hold their golf club in a 'reversed stance'.  Traditionally, if a person is right-handed they would place their right hand at the bottom of the club when they grip.  Conversely, a right-handed person who places their left hand at the bottom would be playing in a so-called 'reversed' stance. Left-handed people who play right-handed – or vice-versa – could have a better chance of excelling in the sport, as major championship winners Phil Mickelson and Jordan Spieth have demonstrated. American golfer Phil Mickelson, pictured, is right-handed, but holds his club as a left-handed person would traditionally do - with the left hand nearer the bottom Adopting this reverse technique may help players hit the ball further and with greater accuracy according to the research team, led by Dr Oliver Runswick, lecturer in performance psychology at King's College London and a golf player himself. The study was inspired...
    Recently I received an email from an inexperienced dog owner, asking for advice about dogs attacking other dogs. She sent me a horrific video of a golden retriever being attacked by a pit bull outside a Shattuck restaurant in Berkeley back in August. I’m not including a link to the video because it’s disturbing and hard to watch, but it shows the pit bull with the retriever’s front leg in its jaws, refusing to let go. As you can imagine, the scene is chaotic with people yelling and screaming, some stepping in to hit and kick the attacking dog or spray it with water. One man pulls on the dog, dragging the retriever with it. Finally, some pepper spray is used, and the dog releases the now severely injured retriever. Although everyone in the video is trying to help, the chaos probably ramped up the attack. I understand the panic that the attack created, and I can only imagine the horror and helplessness felt by both dog owners — one whose dog was being mauled and the other, who was...
    Criss Angel, Shaunyl Bensons Baby Is Doing Well After Emergency C-Section Wholesale prices surge again and offer Americans no relief from high inflation © Provided by NBC Sports Replay Video SETTINGS OFF HD HQ SD LO Skip Ad After struggling for much of the season, Kansas City’s defense has started to turn things around in the last two weeks. The Chiefs allowed just 17 points in their win over the Giants in Week Eight. And they surrendered only seven to the Aaron Rodgers-less Packers on Sunday, also picking up a pair of turnovers. “The last two weeks, I think the guys have played better,” head coach Andy Reid said in his Monday press conference. “Some of it is just getting the guys back on the field as a unit. Getting ’24’ [Melvin Ingram] in there I think helped. That’s a nice addition. If you can add a Pro Bowl-type player in on the defensive line, it surely can’t hurt, and he got quite a few snaps in there on nickel situations. But they’re playing well together, and I think...

    LITTLE leaks are nothing to be embarrassed about but there are ways we can stop them interfering with our everyday lives. One physiotherapist has revealed how to banish stress incontinence and you might even get a better orgasm out of it too. 1To beat stress incontinence one of the best things to do is to look after your pelvic floor healthCredit: Getty Pelvic floor physiotherapist Elaine Miller, who's tag line is 'trying to change one fanny at a time', has launched a campaign to help you #getdrybychristmas. The therapist turned comedian is urging women to do their pelvic exercises in order to stop little leaks that can occur at any time, including after you have had a baby. Many people experience leaks after having a baby due to the fact that the pelvic floor stretches and remains stretched for quite some time. Sun columnist Dr Zoe Williams previously said that women shouldn't accept incontinence and explained that stress incontinence is when you leak a very small amount of urine – when you cough or sneeze, laugh or exercise, for example....

In fact, Judge says the Giants’ headsets never work. “It’s happened in every game so far,” Judge said, via Newsday. “We deal with the league and they keep telling us there are different software updates, but we had to call two timeouts today because we’re trying to send the deals in personnel-wise and we have half the headsets aren’t getting any reception . . .

    Of left-leaning voters, 44 per cent want a different candidate on the Democratic presidential ballot in 2024 because they think another person would have a better chance of winning than current President Joe Biden. An NPR/PBS NewsHour/Marist National poll released Monday shows that 36 per cent of Democrats and Democratic-leaning independents think their party has a better chance putting Biden at the top of the ticket for a second term. Twenty per cent say they are unsure. Half of Republicans, however, said former President Donald Trump has a better chance of winning in 2024 than any other GOP candidate on the ticket. Another 35 per cent said they think someone else would have a better shot at winning the White House in 2024 than Trump and 14 per cent of Republicans and right-leaning voters said they are unsure.

    Louanne Ward has been in the dating industry for more than two decades One of Australia's leading relationship coaches has launched a fascinating new 'dating dictionary' comparing what men and women say with what they truly mean.  After more than two decades in the industry, Louanne Ward, from Perth, has seen time and time again that what a love interest says and what they believe are often two totally different things. 'If their words and actions aren't lining up this could be why, modern dating is a modern minefield,' she said.  'From "we need to take a break" to the classic "it's not you, it's me", they begin hitting you with the classic dating one-liners. But what do they truly mean? Use this dictionary as a guide to decode their words.     1.

    A BLOKE has found himself savaged online after telling his wife he'll never forgive her if she decides to have a water birth. Turning to others for advice, the woman quizzed whether she was being "unreasonable" to think that it's up to her how she chooses to give birth and not down to her husband's preferences. 1A woman was left furious when her husband told her he'd never forgive her if she opted to have a water birthCredit: Shutterstock The wife explained that she and husband have repeatedly found themselves fighting over whether or not she should have a water birth, despite the fact that she's not even pregnant.

    Rangers’ Alex Lafreniere knows he must leave struggles behind: ‘I have to be better’ Alexander Wilson October 28, 2021 Share on facebook Facebook Share on twitter Twitter Share on reddit Reddit As a generational prospect, Alexis Lafreniere of the New York Rangers knows he must perform better in the coming games. Last season, during his first campaign at the NHL level, Alexis played in 56 games, scoring 12 goals and recording nine assists. He enjoyed 13:53 minutes of ice time on average but has seen a significant uptick this year to 15:42. The Quebec native has scored two goals and earned one assist over seven games this season, recording two game-winning goals compared to four last year.

    The Build Back Better Act, President Joe Biden’s roughly $2 trillion infrastructure bill, will reportedly contain more than $500 billion in carveouts to combat climate change. Axios reported Tuesday that the Build Back Better Act will contain more than $500 billion in spending to address climate change. Axios’ Alayna Treene said this would amount to “the single biggest component of the sweeping package.” Sen. Brian Schatz (D-HI) told Axios that the provision would exceed $500 billion in spending. “Everything else is getting a massive haircut, but this isn’t,” Schatz said. “This will be, just as a matter of fact, the biggest climate bill in human history. At least half a trillion dollars. That’s a pretty good story to tell at the Conference of Parties (COP26),” Schatz added. President Joe Biden will travel to the 2021 United Nations climate conference Thursday in Glasgow, Scotland. Biden has hoped to use the passage of his dual infrastructure bills as a way to tout America’s mission to combat climate change.

    The lie that school board elections aren't political time and time and time again convinced people to swallow Kool-Aid that they knew was rancid. Tolerance. Diversity. Equity. Everyone waved those bloody pom-poms for years in their local school districts, because "being nice" was much more in style than questioning the ever-growing god complex of many of our nation's teachers. It was a masterful victory for brainwashing and propagandizing an entire nation. Maybe, just maybe, though, America is showing signs of waking up from its trance. This isn't because of any one thing. Teachers' unions played a key role in keeping schools shut down and kids forever masked during the last 20 months of our Covidstan saga. This happens to be the first election of any consequence after the steal of 2020. The vaccine wars are begging to create a new class of second-class citizenry.

    Places of detention have been in the headlines — about the shortage of corrections officers in county jails, high rates of COVID-19 infections in state prisons, and colleges offering degree programs in state and federal facilities. This is encouraging in that the focus has been on the potential of incarcerated people when in good health, engaged in useful programming and in pursuit of a better future. It is in this future-oriented respect that I am involved in efforts to enroll students behind bars in university degree programs.

    Drop it like its hot: The essential Snoop Dogg playlist The most common online scams to watch for SAN FRANCISCO – At the end of a 162-game regular season during which they faced each other 19 times, the San Francisco Giants had won 107 games, the best in baseball and most in franchise history. The Los Angeles Dodgers had won 106 games, the second best in baseball and the same as they had in 2019 when the Washington Nationals upset them in the NLDS en route to a championship. In the second half, both teams had won 50 games (the Giants played and lost two more than the Dodgers did). They spent the last 40 games of the season separated by fewer than three games in the standings. Essentially neck-in-neck, as the Dodgers dominated but ultimately failed to gain on the Giants. Because they share a division, the Dodgers were forced into a wild-card game against the St. Louis Cardinals, which they won handily, giving them 107 wins of their own going into the historic heavyweight NLDS against the...

    Former senior Trump administration health official Adm. Brett Giroir admitted late last week that the Trump administration “could have done better” responding to the coronavirus pandemic. CNN’s New Day on Friday played a clip of former White House Press Secretary Stephanie Grisham, who came out with a book last week about her time in the White House that paints the previous administration in an unflattering light, saying that the Trump administration’s handling of the pandemic “was tragic.” “I think that the president’s vanity got in the way. He was working for his base. He was not working for this country,” she said the previous Tuesday. The clip fast-forwarded to her saying, “I was part of that. And I don’t think I’ll ever forgive myself with respect to Covid. I don’t think I can ever redeem myself.” Co-host Brianna Keilar asked Giroir if he agreed with Grisham’s “assessment of how the White House handled this under [Donald] Trump.” Giroir fired back at Grisham. “I don’t know her view. I don’t remember Stephanie Grisham ever being in the Situation Room and the task force when we debated the issues,” he said. “I know in that sit room,...

And because of all these supply chain problems, we don’t have building supplies. So, how are we going to build back better if we have no workers and no supplies?” He added, “It’s a good idea, though. It’s always a good idea.” Follow Ian Hanchett on Twitter @IanHanchett

Defensive tackle Fletcher Cox has been credited with five tackles, no sacks, no tackles for loss, and no quarterback hits through the first four weeks of the season. That’s less production than the Eagles are used to seeing from the former All-Pro. He’s playing a different role in Gannon’s defense than he played in the past and said Wednesday that “it’s hard to get settled in” while playing on different spots on the line, but that it is up to him to find a way to make more of a contribution than he’s managed thus far. “I could be better.

    Yankees have massive decision with Aaron Boone, but he’s not fretting it Alexander Wilson October 6, 2021 Share on facebook Facebook Share on twitter Twitter Share on reddit Reddit The New York Yankees were knocked out of the postseason in a disappointing performance against the Boston Red Sox on Tuesday evening. Losing 6–2, starting pitcher and ace Gerrit Cole only lasted 2.0 innings, giving up four hits and three earned runs. At one point, Cole muttered the words “I’m out” as he proceeded to allow two men on base before Clay Holmes came in and finished off the 3rd inning. Whether it be a byproduct of poor coaching or execution from the players, the Yankee should’ve never been in the situation, to begin with, as they lost strings of games that forced them to compete in the Wild Card. At the very least, they should’ve had home-field advantage instead of giving Boston an opportunity to win at home and tantalize a streaky Yankees team. However, the Bombers have a few big decisions to...
    What does the future have in store for Yankees’ manager Aaron Boone? ‘Whatever happens, I’m at peace with’ Andres Chavez October 6, 2021 Share on facebook Facebook Share on twitter Twitter Share on reddit Reddit The New York Yankees’ rocky 2021 season, one filled with disappointment, crushing losses, COVID outbreaks, and other crucial injuries, ended on Tuesday night in a fitting way: with a 6-2 defeat at the hands of the Boston Red Sox, ace Gerrit Cole struggling, and the offense once again failing to come through. “Guys are crushed,” Yankees manager Boone said, per ABC News. “Tonight was another tough one to take. We have been through a lot of wars with guys in that room, and we have a lot of scars. … When it ends so abruptly, the ending is really cruel.” Boone said something that raised many eyebrows: “The league has closed the gap on us. We’ve got to get better in every aspect. Because it’s not just the Red Sox and the Astros now in our league. Look...

One recent study found a sharp increase in anxiety and depression during the first national lockdown in March 2020. Being confined to home also put many relationships under great strain.

    PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — Joel Embiid isn’t sugarcoating his comments when it comes to being asked about the drama surrounding Ben Simmons. On Thursday, he spoke his mind when asked about a recent report that said playing around Embiid’s style isn’t good for Simmons’ game. “Our teams have always been built around his needs. So it’s just kind of surprising to see.

He changed coaches, philosophies and changed direction. On Saturday, Purdue’s revamped defense will find out how much progress its made against an old nemesis with a visit from Minnesota. âWeâve been awful against them on offense,” Brohm said. âTwo years ago, their quarterback came in here and you would have thought he was Joe Montana. He completed 21 of 22 passes and it was not good defense, is a nice way of putting it. Last year, we played better against the run, but we let them throw inside fade routes all day.” These are vastly different teams now, though. Purdue (3-1, 1-0 Big Ten) is giving up 14.3 points and barely 300 yards per game, keeping two opponents out of the end zone....
    Children who eat a nutritious breakfast and more fruit and vegetables have better mental health, a study suggests. A poor diet is potentially as detrimental to pupils' wellbeing as being exposed to violence and rows at home, researchers warn. They described the quality of some children's meals and snacks as 'concerning' and called for urgent action to improve them. A failure to act is also likely to impact on children's growth, development and education, by hampering their ability to concentrate in class, they add. A poor diet is potentially as detrimental to pupils' wellbeing as being exposed to violence and rows at home, researchers warn The nutritionists, from the University of East Anglia, quizzed 10,853 pupils at 50 Norfolk schools on their diet and mental health.

Some 10 per cent and 9 per cent respectively ate none. Further, 22.3 per cent of secondary school pupils and 10.2 per cent of primary consumed...
    COSTA MESA, Calif. (AP) — Justin Herbert has mostly picked up from where he left off last season when was the AP NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year. But there are some areas of concern as the Los Angeles Chargers prepare to face the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday. Even with a new coaching staff, Herbert and the offense continue to struggle in the red zone. The Chargers lead the league with 10 possessions inside the opponent’s 20-yard line, but have only three touchdowns along with four field goals. After throwing only one interception in the red zone last season, Herbert has already been picked off twice and fumbled once when the Chargers appeared to be on the verge of scoring. Los Angeles did not score on eight of its 56 opportunities in the red zone last season, but only two were because of turnovers. “We need to find completions, we need to run the ball more. We need to do all these things to better our game,” Herbert said. “Whether that’s finding check-downs or whether that’s handing...
    House Democrats are worried President Biden’s radical agenda is failing in the legislative branch of government, causing cracks within the party that have begun to play out in the media over how to pass the proposed $3.5 trillion reconciliation package. “If any member of Congress is not concerned that this could fall apart, they need treatment,” Rep. Emanuel Cleaver (D-MO) told Politico in reference to the Democrat’s inability to work together. Sen. Mazie Hirono (D-HI) told the outlet the party is so fractured over the massive tax and spend bill she hopes there is a second plan up Biden’s sleeve. “I wish that we could all be more on the same page, in terms of timing, of the need to push the [American Families Plan],” Hirono said. “I’m hopeful we are going to have a meeting of the minds and not wait until next year… we better have a Plan B.” Biden’s America Last agenda continues https://t.co/MwCA1WQpYo — Breitbart News (@BreitbartNews) March 22, 2021 Rep.

Rams coach Sean McVay says that needs to change. Jackson has just two catches for 21 yards this season, and yesterday he played only three snaps in Indianapolis. McVay said today that Jackson isn’t injured and wasn’t benched, it was just that the Rams didn’t call for the right personnel groupings to get him on the field. “I’ve got to figure out a better way of getting him involved in the rotation,” McVay said, via Greg Beacham of the Associated Press.

Wilson would throw two more interceptions before the day was out and said after the game that he has to “do a better job executing, decision-making, just being smart with the ball.” He also said he has to make sure not to let the bad day knock his confidence down too much as he moves forward with his rookie season. “This is what we signed up for, right?

    Kenny Golladay and Kadarius Toney have aired their frustrations, but the Giants’ wide receivers are both misplaced with their comments right now. The New York Giants had a disappointing close loss to the Washington Football Team Thursday night. As much as things like that can be overblown, wide receiver Kenny Golladay was visibly upset on the sideline late in the game. Quarterback Daniel Jones appeared to be the lone recipient of ire, but Jones tried to dismiss that after the game. Kenny Golladay admitted the offense might be slow to start since none of the weapons have really practiced together but thinks this group can be “special”. #Giants — Zack Rosenblatt (@ZackBlatt) September 2, 2021 Toney was also among those injured Giants’ players. He missed OTA time with a foot injury, then he tested positive for COVID-19 before camp and dealt with a hamstring injury when camp started. So he’s barely practiced since being drafted, but he surely expected better than 24 snaps and two catches for negative yardage through two games. Despite a solid outing against Washington, Jones is...
