Post m-mate Success rate Nicolae Stanciu Roma
A running back is like a city bus. If you miss one, just wait five more minutes and another will come along. This rather harsh maxim is something thats been said on many a draft day of the position. It reflects the mindset of a pro football team that there are so many talented players at that spot, it should be relatively easy to find a replacement should one go down with an injury or retire. The Toronto Argonauts are hoping thats the case because Chad Kackert has been forced to step away from his starting job after breaking his lower leg in a non-contact practice just before last years Eastern Final. Replacing a back of his talent will not, despite the adage, be easy. Sporting a lengthy vertical scar on the outside of his left leg, starting just above the top of his shoe, Kackert said he found out a couple of days ago that camp would be a no go. "I expected to come back and be on IR (injured reserve)," said Kackert, "but I understand the circumstance of the league. I dont want a handout, I dont want to come onto a team and just take a paycheque while Im sitting around not helping anybody."Kackert has been named the teams strength and conditioning coach and was in attendance as the Argos opened their full camp at York University on Sunday. "Im going to rehab. I mean I want my leg to get better...who wants to walk around on a gimp leg for the rest of their life?" continued the 27-year-old. "If its sooner rather than later then Ill reevaluate, but as of right now Im going to get my leg better and I going to coach this team as far as strength and conditioning goes." If Kackerts career is over it was certainly an eventful one. He was named the starting running back in 2012 amid a firestorm of controversy when Cory Boyd, the leagues leading rusher at the time, was unceremoniously cut by the club during the bye week. Kackert took over and led the team to the 100th Grey Cup, where he was named the games Most Outstanding Player. Scott Milanovich benefited from Kackerts play, but now the head coach must carry on without him, something that he was prepared for. "I wasnt expecting him to be here (at camp) as a player," said Milanovich. "It was a very serious injury, particularly with his style of play, using his quickness and his speed so we were planning all along, to unfortunately have to replace him." The coach underscored the importance of Kackerts role on the team, not only on the field, but in the locker room, where his intangibles will still be present in his new coaching role. On the field, life goes on. The Argos currently have six other tailbacks in camp. Canadians Anthony Woodson and Brendan Gillanders would be long shots to start. Another Canadian, this years first-round draft pick Anthony Coombs, is "absolutely" a possibility to be the starter, according to the coach. The other three are Americans. Steve Slaton is a former starter with the Houston Texans who was a Heisman Trophy finalist with West Virginia, Jeremiah Johnson is a one-time star at Oregon, while Curtis Steele is back for another year. Steele saw some game action last season when Kackert was injured. His best game was against B.C., when he rushed for 74 yards on 12 carries and scored a pair of touchdowns. Milanovich says that experience will help him in his quest to become the starter, although the competition is wide open. "Curtis has an advantage because hes been here and hes been in the offence," said the coach. "It could be any of those guys at this point." Steele took reps with the first team on Sunday, something he may not have envisioned because he didnt find out about the severity of his teammates injury until the night before camp opened. Like Kackert said about his paycheque, Steele doesnt want anything handed to him. "It just means that you have to come here and work even harder," Steele told "I thought Kack was going to be back this year, now (the starting spot) is up for grabs. Every day counts, every rep counts, so you just have to come out and give it your all." Its been an interesting calendar year for the University of Memphis product, who got his first taste of the Canadian game, before getting married in April. How much did last years experience help him prepare for this opportunity? "It was huge," said Steele. "I learned so much last year. The plays (this year) are coming to me faster, Im doing less thinking, and thats what I was aiming for for this year. I dont want to think as much so I can just feel comfortable and just make plays and just play." Coombs is the wild card here. A decade ago a Canadian would be a long shot to start at running back, but with two of the leagues best backs, Jon Cornish and Andrew Harris, being Canadian, the adage that a home-grown product wasnt talented enough to play that position has been proven to be a myth. Can the University of Manitoba product continue the trend? He knows he has a lot of work to do. "Things go a lot quicker in the backfield and you have to stay patient. You have to stay calm and focus on your steps and your aiming point and make your read and go. Once I get comfortable with that I think the skys the limit." He quickly added something about the passing game that will make his coaching staff and quarterback smile ear to ear. "We (the backs) are more concerned with the protection because if you cant protect Ricky Ray, you wont be running no routes (laughs) so thats the first thing." With the "Kack Attack" gone, the battle to replace him becomes one of the more interesting subplots to an already fascinating training camp. Tyrell Adams Jersey .

Damyean Dotson, 19, Dominic Artis, 19 and Brandon Austin, 18, were suspended after the school received a police report concerning allegations made by a student who said she was assaulted by the players in early March.Why is Harry Kane taking corners? Its a question many England fans are asking - and struggling to answer - following the countrys 1-1 draw with Russia at Euro 2016. The Tottenham striker was top scorer in the Premier League last season but, rather than aiming to get on the end of corners in Marseille, Kane was delivering them - with mixed success - in Englands tournament opener.Kane took six corners against Russia on Saturday night, with two particularly poor efforts flying over the box, forcing Dele Alli to dash after the ball to keep it in play on the other side of the field. In the Premier League this season, Kane took just seven corners for Tottenham, where Christian Eriksen is the dedicated set-piece specialist. And all seven of those Kane corners were taken short. Kanes corners vs Russia 1 - Overhit. Alli retrieves on other side of pitch. 2 - Finds Smalling. Defender heads over from penalty spot. 3 - Cleared at near post. 4 - Cleared at near post. 5 - Overhit. Russia clear.6 - Short to Lallana. Kane receives the ball back but cross just evades Cahill. However, he was handed corner-kick duty by Roy Hodgson for Englands first Euro 2016 warm-up game against Turkey on May 22 and has continued to take them since.I dont need to apologise for Kane taking a corner, Hodgson said at the time. Especially if youve got a player with his quality striking a ball and no one else in the team who comes up to that level of striking a ball.Its a move Sky Sports pundit Jamie Redknapp is critical of. The former Liverpool captain - an expert at striking a dead ball during his playing days - says the responsibility should fall to an England midfielder, so Kane can concentrate on scoring himself. We need Kane in the box. To have our best striker taking corners doesnt make any sense. Jamie Redknapp Were allowing one of our best players to take corners - and its not good news. I cant understand it, he told Sky Sports News HQs Euro Verdict.Weve got some very good technical players - Alli, Wayne Rooney - so why are we letting Harry Kane take them? He can deliver a good ball and he has that cross where it dips into the box, but Im sure most players can do that. We need Kane in the box. To have our best striker taking corners doesnt make any sense.Ray Wilkins, a former set-piece taker for England, was equally confused by the tactic.It baffles the life out of me, he said. If youre a midfield player playing at international level and you cant kick a ball 40 yards, unopposed, and stick it in an area of 10 yards at a height where you have an opportunity to score, you shouldnt really be playing. Kane only took seven corners for Tottenham all season - and all were short passes Indeed, in the past two Premier League seasons Kane has scored 10 times from set-piece situations (not including his one goal direct from a free-kick) and, in 2015/16, no player scored more goals from inside the box. All the indicators are hed be a more than useful presence in the opposition box for corner-kick routines.However, the bare facts of his corner-taking at Euro 2016 make for interesting reading: no player has completed more successful corners so far in the tournament and Kanes corner-kick stats are far more impressive than Dimitri Payets efforts for France against Romania.
