Strong suffered a serious sprained ankle earlier this season against the Detroit Lions. He returned to practice this week, but was limited and unable to reach a point where the coaching and medical staffs felt comfortable lifting restrictions on his activity.
With starting linebacker Brandon Marshall nursing a left hamstring injury that will keep him out on Sunday at Tennessee and maybe longer, the Broncos promoted linebacker Quentin Gause from their practice squad to provide depth and special teams help.
In a corresponding roster move, receiver Marlon Brown was placed on injured reserve.
MONTREAL — The return of Avalanche captain Gabe Landeskog and the 1,500th game for Colorado winger Jarome Iginla served as big news from Saturday’s morning skate at the Bell Centre, where the Avs will take on the Montreal Canadiens in a “Hockey Night in Canada” broadcast.
Landeskog is back after missing 10 games with a lower-body injury.
On a checklist of what it takes to win a championship, the Mullen girls basketball team can mark off every box.
They’ve got a bonafide star in senior Whitney Jacob, who coach Frank Cawley said is the best all-around player he’s had at Mullen.
They’ve got depth with the likes of savvy senior point guard Tori Galvan and the junior twin tandem of Sydney Congdon and Jaden Congdon, a trio of underrated players who might be able to help the Mustangs dethrone two-time defending 4A champion Valor Christian come tournament time.
And perhaps most importantly, the Mustangs possess the intangible of experience, with the majority of its starters and bench players back from last season’s 18-9 squad.
It all makes for a giant, gold ball opportunity—and it’s one Jacob and her teammates aren’t taking lightly as Mullen eyes its first state title since 2006, and fifth overall.
“We definitely have a high confidence level coming off of last year and making the Great 8, but we know that we have to work harder this year because we want to go further than that,” Jacob said.
At around 11:30 a.m. ET on Saturday, Andrew McCutchen walked out from behind a set of black-and-gold curtains and moved toward an autograph table, receiving cheers and a round of applause from the crowd of people waiting in line.
