TALLAHASSEE, Fla. Andre Johnson Elite Jersey . —Florida State
senior running back Chris Thompson is out for the rest of the season after
injuring his left knee in the Seminoles win at Miami on Saturday. Its the second
straight season the 5-foot-8, 187-pound speedster has suffered a season-ending
injury, this one a torn anterior cruciate ligament. He suffered two broken
vertebrae in the fifth game of the 2011 season and worked strenuously to get
back for this season. “A very big blow to us,” coach Jimbo Fisher said Monday.
“He may be our most dynamic offensive player.” Thompson was well on his way to
becoming the 11th-ranked Seminoles first 1,000-yard rusher since Warrick Dunn
did it for a third consecutive season in 1996. Thompson finished the season with
687 yards rushing, averaging 7.5 yards a carry, and was the teams third leading
receiver with 21 catches for another 248 yards. He has 1,735 career yards
rushing. “Its tough to see,” Florida State quarterback EJ Manuel said. “He was
having a fabulous season.” Thompson was also on his way to another huge game
when he sustained the injury early in the second quarter. He already had 47
yards rushing and had two receptions for another 47 yards, including a 32-yard
gain on the play he was injured. Although no decision has been made yet on when
Thompson will have surgery, Fisher said he was confident his star tailback would
rehabilitate fully and be able to resume his career, perhaps at Florida State.
Fisher said the school will look into asking the NCAA to grant Thompson a
redshirt season since he was injured on his first carry of last years game at
Wake Forest, the fifth game of the year. It was the third significant personnel
loss for the Seminoles this year. Their most heralded defensive player and top
pass rusher, Brandon Jenkins, suffered a broken foot in the first game that
ended his season. A month before the season began, starting cornerback and punt
return specialist Greg Reid was dismissed by Fisher for violating team policy.
Thompson was part of Florida States all-senior backfield that included fullback
Lonnie Pryor and Manuel. “I was just hoping hed get up,” Manuel said. James
Wilder Jr., will start in Thompsons place on Saturday against Duke (6-2, 3-1)
with Devonta Freeman sharing playing time at tailback. The two sophomores have
combined to rush for 656 yards and 10 touchdowns this season while Pryor has run
for 169 yards and six scores. “You have to move on,” Fisher said Monday. “This
game is very unforgiving.” Connor Barwin Jersey . The disaster caused by

finding out going into the London 2012 Olympic Games, his chase of history this
time around has potential pitfalls all around it. Andre Johnson Youth Jersey . After giving up
a two-goal lead with under 20 minutes left to play, the Reds held on for a 3-3
draw against the Houston Dynamo on Wednesday night in MLS action.HOUSTON—The
way LaMarcus Aldridge was playing on Saturday night, Damian Lillard knew the
Rockets would focus on the Trail Blazers star in overtime. When the rookie
started getting more open looks, he delivered. Lillard scored 20 points,
including eight in overtime, and the Trail Blazers slowed down James Harden in a
95-85 win over Houston. “(Aldridge) had it rolling, he was dominating the game
offensively, and I just wanted to make sure I was in the position to knock the
shots down,” Lillard said. “(Aldridge) got going and I was able to get easier
shots.” Aldridge finished with 27 points, 11 rebounds, six assists and two
blocks for the Trail Blazers. All but four of Lillards points came in the second
half. He also had nine assists and six rebounds. Lillard and Nicolas Batum each
made a 3 to help Portland open an 87-81 lead in the extra session. Harden then
made a pair of free throws before Lillard converted a reverse layup. His second
3 of overtime pushed Portlands lead to 93-85 with 1:25 remaining. “He made big
shots for us, and thats what we need from him,” Aldridge said of the first-round
pick. Harden led the Rockets with 24 points in his home debut, but he wasnt as
dominant as he was in the first two games. He scored 37 and a career-high 45
points after he was acquired in a deal with Oklahoma City last week. The NBAs
Sixth Man of the Year signed a five-year, $80 contract extension on Wednesday.
Batum had 17 points, Wesley Matthews scored 16 and J.J. Hickson added nine
points and 12 rebounds for Portland. Jeremy Lin had 13 points and seven assists
in his home debut for the Rockets, who lost for the first time this season. “It
wasnt the prettiest game today and I think both sides struggled to hit shots,”
Lin said. “Thats the way it goes sometimes.” The game was tied with 1:17 to go
before Lin made a layup while being fouled by Hickson. He sunk the free throw to
give Houston an 81-78 lead. Matthews tied it again with a 3 with just under a
minute left. He also guarded Harden most of the night. “When you put up 45 the
night before, it kind of wears you out,” Matthews said. “We are friends, but
when its tipoff time there are no friends.” Houston had a chance to win it iin
regulation, but Portland knocked the ball out of Hardens hands seconds before
the buzzer. Whitney Mercilus Jersey. “It was good
defence,” he said. “I just lost the ball.” Portland led by five early in the
fourth quarter before Marcus Morris hit consecutive 3-pointers to give Houston a
69-68 lead. “We didnt get quality shots,” Houston coach Kevin McHale said. “We
got to get better at that.” Dozens of fake beards made to resemble Hardens
trademark look dotted the sellout crowd of 18,140. The Rockets were selling them
at the team store on Saturday night to take advantage of the excitement created
by their newest acquisition. Houstons mascot Clutch even got in on the fun
during a break in the third quarter and donned a fake beard, too. Harden said he
tweaked an ankle in the game and it slowed him a bit. “But I dont like to make
excuses,” he said. “I had opportunities to make plays and to make shots and I
just didnt.” Portland used a 12-4 run at the beginning of the second half to tie
it at 49 as the Rockets struggled to find a rhythm in the third quarter. Harden
didnt score after halftime until he converted a three-point play with just over
four minutes remaining in the third, giving Houston a 58-57 lead. The Trail
Blazers answered with seven straight points. An alley-oop dunk by Morris got
Houston rolling again and it trailed 64-63 entering the fourth quarter. Harden
grabbed a microphone and welcomed fans to the game before the national anthem,
and got the team going by scoring Houstons first six points. He had 10 at the
end of the first quarter to help the Rockets lead 19-17. Houston opened the
second quarter with a 10-0 run. The Trail Blazers first points in the second
came on a 3 by Matthews less than eight minutes before halftime. That was the
first of seven straight points for Portland before Lin got Houston going again
by hitting a nifty one-handed layup and the foul shot. The Rockets led 45-37 at
halftime. NOTES: Omer Asik, who had a career-high 19 rebounds on Friday, had 15
rebounds for Houston and Morris finished with 13 points. ... Chandler Parsons
had 12 rebounds for the Rockets. ... Aldridge has scored at least 20 points in
each of his last nine regular-season games against Houston. ’ ’ ’
