Foster suffered a torn ACL and MCL on Sunday in a Week 3 preseason game against the Dallas Cowboys, coach Steve Wilks confirmed Monday. The news of his knee injury was first reported by NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport.The third-year pro injured his knee while attempting to evade a block during kickoff coverage and was carted off the field. Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impact “Just personally for him, just really disappointed and saddened for him,” Wilks said, “because he had a great training camp. He was performing well, doing some great things — even on special teams he was standing out there as well.”Related LinksKeim, Fitzgerald helped Cardinals’ Shipley move forward after ACL injuryBy the numbers: Arizona Cardinals’ win over the CowboysCardinals running back D.J.

British junior sent home for indiscipline as LTA gets tough

first_imgTennis Share on Messenger Eleanor Preston in Melbourne Mon 21 Jan 2008 18.57 EST Share on Facebook The Recap: sign up for the best of the Guardian’s sport coverage Reuse this content Roger Draper, the Lawn Tennis Association’s chief executive, is prone to using buzz words. “Ruthless” is his favourite one and the British junior Marcus Willis can testify to the fact that at least some of the LTA’s coaches are willing to put their superior’s slogan into practice after being sent home from the Australian Open in disgrace yesterday.Seventeen-year-old Willis found himself on his way back to Berkshire after repeatedly disobeying the instructions of Martin Bohm, the LTA’s travelling coach, and his assistant, Martin Lee. Bohm has been repeatedly displeased with Willis’s behaviour since the squad of boys arrived in Australia and, since he advocates a no-nonsense “three strikes and out” rule, could accept no more disobedience. British junior sent home for indiscipline as LTA gets tough Read more Share via Email Share on Twitter Share on Twitter Willis was on his final warning when he missed a training session on Saturday morning. He disappeared for several hours and, when he did finally put in an appearance, supposedly to practise with fellow British juniors – Dan Evans, Neil Pauffley, Daniel Cox and Niall Angus – he turned up without his rackets.”He’s been sent home for disciplinary reasons. He was actually written to before he came away to explain that he was really in the last-chance saloon,” said Draper. “We said last year that we were going to get a lot tougher. Hopefully Marcus will come back a better player and a little bit wiser for his actions. It’s frustrating because he is a top-20 player in the world and he’s blown his chance at the first grand slam of the year. It’s even more frustrating because we’ve been making some progress with the boys. He’s a really talented player. Hopefully, like the rest of them, he’ll learn from these mistakes.”Judy Murray is not a woman to suffer foolish behaviour gladly and both her sons would shudder at the thought of what fate might have awaited them had they been sent home as juniors. Needless to say she was not impressed with Willis’s antics or his lack of understanding of just how privileged an existence he leads as one of the cash-rich LTA’s most promising – and therefore cosseted – young players.”It’s a message to the other players as well that the LTA isn’t going to stand for any nonsense,” said Murray, who is an adviser to the organisation. “In many ways our kids are still spoilt by the opportunities that they have and we just have to find a way to make them hungrier and set them goals.”Draper has watched how other federations like Tennis Australia handle their young players and may have taken his lead from Craig Tiley, who is in charge of player development at TA. Under Tiley’s regime two Australian juniors were banned from travelling last year – the 2007 Australian Open junior champion, Brydan Klein, for losing his temper on court and 15-year-old Bernard Tomic, who was judged not to be trying hard enough.
