INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Nick Bosa found himself in the news again last week when Zion Williamson sprained his right knee in the opening minute against North Carolina.The sight of his left shoe tearing apart and Williamson grabbing his right knee unleashed feverish debate over whether Duke’s freakish freshman forward should ever again play for Mike Krzyzewski’s Blue Devils.Many wondered if he should just turn his attention to the pros like Bosa did six months ago when he got hurt in Ohio State’s third game of the season. Instead of rehabbing for a return to the Buckeyes Will Harris Jersey , Bosa began training for the combine, the draft and a career in the NFL.Bosa figures to get drafted higher than his father, John, who went 16th overall to Miami in 1987, and maybe even higher than big brother, Joey, the third overall pick by the Chargers in 2016.Williamson is the consensus top pick in the NBA draft this summer.So, Bosa was asked at the NFL scouting combine Saturday what advice he’d give Williamson, who missed his third straight game Saturday with a mild knee sprain.“I mean, just lean on the people that you love and go with your gut,” Bosa said. “I faced a pretty serious injury. I had surgery that took me out for the rest of the year, so kind of the choice was made for me.”Bosa dealt with something much more serious than Williamson did — a torn bilateral core muscle, an excruciating injury that occurs when the rectus abdominus or adductor muscles are torn off the pubic bone. Surgeons fix it by inserting a mesh cone into the tear to plug the hole formed in the muscle.“It’s literally the muscle used to breathe, to cough http://www.lionsauthorizedshops.com/authentic-austin-bryant-jersey , to go to the bathroom,” Bosa said.Bosa got tangled up with Horned Frogs left tackle Austin Meyers on a third down pass rush on Sept. 14 in Arlington, Texas, and stayed on the turf.“I know what a serious injury is,” Bosa said. “I knew my season was in jeopardy and I had a doctor confirm that.”Bosa had gotten off to a terrific start, collecting a team-high 14 tackles, including six for loss, and four sacks when he got hurt.“It was the year that I been waiting for my whole career,” he said. “I kind of split reps my freshman and sophomore year. Coming in I was going to be the guy. … It just got torn away from me. It’s something that I’ll always think back to.”That first night was the toughest, he said.“When I got home from that TCU game I was lying in bed, I could barely get up,” Bosa said. “It was one of the darkest moments of my life so far.“So, for me to just talk to my family and let them bring me up and just know that my life is still good and I still have amazing blessings and a bright future, that’s what helped me get through it.”Five days later Rashan Gary Jersey , he underwent surgery and in mid-October, Bosa had decided he wouldn’t return.He moved in with Joey in Los Angeles and after the Chargers’ season was over, the brothers returned to their hometown of Fort Lauderdale, Florida.Bosa said he’s finally back to 100 percent and wouldn’t hold back during his testing at the combine nor skip any drills.Bosa said that while he was told the injury likely came about because of the enormous torque his body experiences playing football, he’s not worried that he’ll reinjure himself.“This is one of the injuries that once you get it fixed, it’s pretty guaranteed to be good,” Bosa said.NFL Media analyst Daniel Jeremiah rates the 6-foot-4, 263-pounder the best player in the draft. Although he’s an inch shorter and 13 pounds lighter than his brother, “I expect similar dominance and production at the NFL level,” Jeremiah said.“That would just mean so much to be thought of as the best player in the draft,” Bosa said.The top pick belongs to the Arizona Cardinals, who recently hired Ohio State linebackers coach Billy Davis.Joey Bosa said his brother made the right decision not to return to Ohio State: “If anyone had the opportunity to hit the lottery tomorrow, would anyone risk that? He has that opportunity. There is a difference between high draft stock and No. 1 pick in the draft.”Forget sibling rivalry , too: Bosa said his big brother wants him to do better than he did three years ago when only quarterbacks Jared Goff and Carson Wentz were drafted ahead of him.“It’s crazy that both of us are in this position so soon after each other http://www.packersauthorizedshops.com/authentic-darnell-savage-jr.-jersey ,” the younger Bosa said.Bosa finished his college career with 29 tackles in 30 games, 17 1/2 sacks and two fumble recoveries.“I don’t have as much tape as some people, but clearly my tape was enough to get me this far,” Bosa said.While Bosa will never forget the sudden end to his college career, he’d rather think about what lies ahead.“I’m going to show it this year as a rookie,” Bosa said. “I didn’t get to show as much as I wanted at Ohio State, it was very short, but I’ve got a lot of football to play in my career.” ATLANTA (AP) — Handed the perfect setup against a depleted, struggling Atlanta defense, the New York Giants‘ offense again fell short.No one was more surprised than Odell Beckham Jr .“I did think this was going to be a big day for us,” Beckham said.Instead, the Giants were held to two field goals through three quarters of their 23-20 loss to the Falcons on Monday night. Two fourth-quarter touchdowns were not enough to win the game or convince anyone in the New York locker room that answers had been found for season-long scoring woes that led to the Giants’ fourth straight loss.The Giants (1-6) were frustrated by an Atlanta defense which has three starters on injured reserve and had allowed the second-most points and third-most yards per game in the NFL.After the game, Beckham sat facing his locker, holding his head in his hands before finally heading off to his shower.When he faced reporters later Elgton Jenkins Jersey , he was calm but frustrated.“It’s the little things, the little pieces that you’ve got to put together, the little things that are the difference between losing and winning,” Beckham said. “We just haven’t found a way to put it all together.”The statistics would suggest Beckham did his part with eight receptions for 143 yards, including a 1-yard touchdown catch with only 5 seconds remaining.The touchdown made the final score look more respectable, but it brought Beckham little comfort. He chastised himself for failing to catch a 2-point pass that could have cut the Falcons’ lead to 20-14 with about five minutes remaining.“That’s something I have to go home with at night,” he said. “That’s tough.”Despite having such weapons as Beckham, Sterling Shepard, who had five catches for 167 yards, rookie standout running back Saquon Barkley and two-time Super Bowl winning quarterback Eli Manning, the Giants have found no answer to their season-long inability to turn yards into points.“We know we have talent,” said tight end Evan Engram. “We’re doing things. We’re just not putting the big picture together. That’s what’s frustrating. … We’re just going to keep working, and it will eventually pop.”The Giants have scored no more than 20 points in five of their seven games.“I can’t give you the answer,” Barkley said. “We’re not executing. We’re not finishing drives. That’s the gist of our season. … We’ve got to find a way to execute and finish our game.”There were no turnovers to blame. Manning threw for 399 yards with one touchdown and no interceptions http://www.packersauthorizedshops.com/authentic-jace-sternberger-jersey , but he was sacked four times for a loss of 27 yards. Entering the game, the 37-year-old Manning had been sacked 20 times, third-most in the NFL.Barkley was held to 43 yards, his second-lowest total of the season, on 14 carries. He added nine catches for 51 yards.“Honestly, personally I didn’t play a good game,” Barkley said. “… I wasn’t the player I usually am.”The difficulties in scoring might have influenced coach Pat Shurmur’s aggressive play-calling.With Atlanta leading 10-3 early in the third quarter, Shurmur left his offense on the field for a fourth-down play from the Atlanta 1. Manning’s pass for Scott Simonson was incomplete.Shurmur again left his offense on the field to go for a 2-point play after Barkley’s 2-yard scoring run cut Atlanta’s lead to 20-12 in the fourth quarter. Giants players supported the call, which ended with the incompletion to Beckham.“He has faith in us that we’re going to put it in the end zone,” Shepard said. “I love that the coaches have faith in us.”Added Beckham: “I like the call. I love being aggressive.”Shurmur said analytics show “You increase your chances by 50 percent if you go for it and make it there, so that’s what you do.”Shurmur said going for 2 was “an aggressive approach. … I think from a head coaching perspective, I want to be aggressive for our guys.”
