    When the stories of Bitcoin millionaires began to emerge alongside the asset rally, Ether users also had a story or two to share. An anonymous hodler who bought Ether when he was trading at $ 2 is apparently “completely out of the game.” The trader who goes by the pseudonym “u / FollowMe22” on Reddit apparently sold Ether recently. The first investor claimed to have earned around 14,900% in long-term capital gains and intends to buy a house. The hodler, who runs an e-commerce business, claims he started buying Ethereum in early 2016.

    Considering the way 2020 has gone, it might seem like ages since Justin Herbert made his first NFL start. But for the Los Angeles Chargers rookie, the season has gone quickly. Herbert and the Chargers wrap up the season Sunday at Kansas City. He made his first start on Sept. 20 against the Chiefs when he found out less than a minute before kickoff that he was playing. Despite the lack of snaps with the first team, Herbert showed right away that he would be a quick study with 311 yards and a touchdown in a 23-20 overtime loss. “I think you blink and you realize that you’re in (game) 16,” Herbert said. “It feels like it was just yesterday that we played the Chiefs.” Herbert took over after Tyrod Taylor was taken to the hospital when an injection for a rib injury punctured a lung. Three weeks later,...
    AUSTIN (CBSDFW.COM/AP) — COVID-19 vaccine providers in Texas, who have already received doses, are being urged by state leaders to give them out as quickly as possible. The Lone Star State is dealing with a record-breaking number of new cases and virus patients in hospitals, so state officials say vaccines should not be held in reserve. “All providers that have received COVID-19 vaccine must immediately vaccinate healthcare workers, Texans over the age of 65, and people with medical conditions that put them at a greater risk of severe disease or death from COVID-19,” said Dr. John Hellerstedt, commissioner of the Department of State Health Services. “No vaccine should be kept in reserve,” he said, shortly before Texas reported 11,775 hospitalized COVID patients, setting a record high for the second day in a row. The state also reported a record high 26,990 newly-confirmed cases. State health officials report Texas has received...

    The Giants have navigated around the NFL’s stringent coronavirus protocols reasonably well. They welcome back three players — offensive tackle Matt Peart, tight end Kaden Smith and receiver and punt returner Dante Pettis — for Sunday’s game in Seattle. All three spent last week on the reserve/COVID-19 list and missed the victory in Cincinnati. Meanwhile, the Seahawks were the only NFL team without a single positive test this season — until now. Seattle placed injured defensive tackle Bryan Mone on the reserve/COVID-19 list on Saturday. Before news of the positive test, head coach Pete Carroll lauded the leadership on his team as having “carried the message for us’’ and pointed to “a very, very strict program here in every way’’ as the main reason for the success. “We’ve felt all along like we needed to create a bubble — even though it extended into where they personally live and all...

    The Giants, in their first game since offensive line coach Marc Colombo was fired, did plenty of good and some not-so-good up front in Sunday’s 19-17 victory over the Bengals at Paul Brown Stadium. Leaning on a ball-control attack after quarterback Daniel Jones left in the third quarter with a hamstring injury, the Giants ended up with 42 rushing attempts and gained 142 yards, their sixth consecutive game with more than 100 rushing yards. Their time of possession was 37:26, their highest in more than seven years. There were no sacks of Jones or his replacement, Colt McCoy. Head coach Joe Judge dismissed Colombo after the two had words as the Giants embarked on their bye week. Colombo’s replacement, veteran assistant Dave DeGuglielmo, kept rookie Shane Lemieux in the starting lineup at left guard and mixed Will Hernandez in for a few series. This does not bode well for Hernandez,...
    COSTA MESA, Calif. (AP) — The Los Angeles Chargers have activated running back Austin Ekeler from injured reserve ahead of Sunday’s game at Buffalo.

    CLEVELAND (AP) — The Cleveland Browns placed star wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. on injured reserve Tuesday, two days after he suffered a season-ending knee injury in a win at Cincinnati. Beckham tore his left anterior cruciate ligament on Cleveland’s first possession Sunday. The three-time Pro Bowler was trying to make a tackle when his left leg buckled as he began to launch himself toward Bengals cornerback Darius Phillips, who intercepted Baker Mayfield’s first pass. Beckham will likely need up to a year to recover from the injury. He’s set to earn $15.75 million next season, with $12.97 million guaranteed. The injury is another tough blow for Beckham, whose production has been limited in recent seasons because he can’t stay healthy. Beckham played in all 16 games last season, his first with Cleveland, but was hampered by a core muscle injury that required surgery in January. Beckham, who turns 28...

    NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — The Tennessee Titans are going to have to finish this season without left tackle Taylor Lewan because of a torn right ACL.

The three-time Pro Bowl tackle was hurt with 6:12 left in the third quarter on an incomplete pass to A.J. Brown. He was able to walk gingerly off the field and then to the locker room by himself.

"Look, I made it clear that I have hurt my family and that I have disappointed my supporters, ... and I'm taking responsibility for that," Cunningham told Hyland. "I'm very clear that this campaign isn't about my personal life. It's about the people of North Carolina." When asked for further details about how the relationship started, Cunningham avoided answering the question. "I'm grateful for your questions, and I'm happy to continue to work with our communications team to address them as they come," he said ???? CAL IS CAUGHT ON CAMERA by @MichaelWNCN Repeatedly...

    Getty David Njoku of the Cleveland Browns. The Cleveland Browns will be without tight end David Njoku for at least the next three weeks after placing him on injured reserve. Njoku suffered a knee injury in the Browns Week 1 loss to the Ravens. But that wasn’t before he caught three balls for 50 yards and Cleveland’s only touchdown of the afternoon. Njoku caught just five balls for 43 yards and a score all of last season as he dealt with injuries and a rocky relationship with the former coaching staff. Njoku entered this season as the Browns third tight end on the depth chart — behind Austin Hooper and Harrison Bryant — but showed off the upside that made him a first-round pick in 2017, outplaying both. The injury is surely disappointing, but Njoku promised that it would be a quick trip to the IR. He expects...

    NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — The Tennessee Titans are trickling into the team’s headquarters for a training camp with their first-round draft pick Isaiah Wilson on the COVID-19/reserve list. Coach Mike Vrabel said Tuesday that Wilson, the lone unsigned member of the Titans’ six-man draft class, has been placed on the list. That means Wilson, the No. 29 draft pick overall out of Georgia, either tested positive or came in close contact with someone who did. This is the third training camp for Vrabel with his Titans coming off the franchise’s first AFC championship game appearance in 17 years. The coronavirus pandemic makes this a very different camp from Vrabel’s first two. The coach said he’s learned he can’t eliminate distractions and must manage them the best way possible. The health and safety of the team remains the top concern. “We’re going to navigate through a pandemic...

    Wide receiver Richie James Jr. is the first 49ers player to land on the NFL’s COVID-19 reserve list. James, the 49ers’ return specialist last year, broke his right wrist last month, so the hurdles are stacking up in his quest to make the roster for a third season. James is one of 18 players listed on the NFL transaction wire Monday for going on the reserve/COVID-19 list. It does not necessarily mean he tested positive upon reporting last week to the facility for training camp, as he could have been exposed to someone infected. Teams are prohibited from disclosing whether a player is in quarantine or is positive for COVID-19.Related Articles ‘What everybody was hoping wouldn’t happen:’ Oakland A’s speak on Marlins’ coronavirus outbreak Gov.

Under the program, banks make loans to borrowers that meet the Fed’s criteria, and the central bank then purchases 95% of the loans to reduce the risk to the bank and enable it to engage in more lending. It’s the first time since the Depression that the Fed has lent directly to companies.
