BEREA, Ohio—Browns wide receiver Josh Cribbs is practicing for the first time
since sustaining a concussion in Clevelands loss at Baltimore. Andrew Luck White Jersey . Cribbs was injured
in the first quarter Thursday night, when he was flattened while returning a
kickoff by Ravens linebacker Dannell Ellerbe. The impact knocked Cribbs helmet
off and his head smacked the ground as he fell. Cribbs did not return to the
23-16 loss and sat out practice Monday. Cribbs had been in on six offensive
plays and appeared to have a major role in the game plan before he was injured.
Browns wide receivers Mohamed Massaquoi (hamstring) and Travis Benjamin
(undisclosed), safety T.J. Ward (broken thumb) and tight end Alex Smith
(concussion) were not on the practice field Wednesday. Ward had surgery a few
days ago. Vick Ballard Jersey . Related readings: How

forward and regular-season scoring king for Pittsburgh Penguins this season
scored twice in the first period against reigning world champion Finland and
completed a hat trick in the second period. TORONTO —High-scoring forward Mark
Matthews of Oshawa, Ont., was drafted first overall by the Edmonton Rush as
talent developed in Canada supplied all of the first-round National Lacrosse
League picks for the third year in a row. The Minnesota Swarm got the next three
players Monday night: imposing defenceman Brock Sorensen of Peterborough, Ont.,
offensive force Kiel Matisz of Stoney Creek, Ont., and forward Shayne Jackson of
Bowmanville, Ont. The Buffalo Bandits had the fifth pick and chose forward Dhane
Smith of Kitchener, Ont., and the Calgary Roughnecks used the sixth and seventh
positions to get forwards Joe Resetarits of Hamburg, N.Y., and Matthew Dinsdale
of Coquitlam, B.C. Edmonton also had the eighth pick and took Matthews Whitby
junior teammate Curtis Knight, also a forward. The Colorado Mammoth went for
forward Colton Clark of Burnaby, B.C., and Minnesota closed out the first round
when it called the name of defenceman Alex Crepinsek of Oakville, Ont.
Resetarits is the only American selected in the first round in the last three
years. He honed his indoor skills playing junior in St. Catharines, Ont., and
senior in Brampton, Ont. The Toronto Rock had to wait until the second round for
its first chance and selected defenceman Brad Kri of Acton, Ont. If there ever
was a time for lacrosse to thrive in Edmonton, it is now. GM-coach Derek Keenans
crew created a buzz last May by unexpectedly making it to the NLL final for the
first time and theyve now got a dynamic scorer in Matthews to lead the offence.
“We have to be realistic,” said Keenan. “We were 6-10 last season. “We had a
great run at the end and were real close to winning it all but we need to have
more consistent regular seasons. Mark is going to help us do that.” Matthews,
six foot four and 210 pounds, played field lacrosse this summer in Denver where
he was a U of D all-America NCAA star. The 22-year-old last played indoors in
2011 when he helped the Whitby Warriors win the Canadian junior championship. He
amassed 87 points in 21 post-season games. “Its not like he has to come in and
score seven a night because well have a pretty good supporting cast around him,”
said Keenan. “Im sure when youre the first overall pick and youre highly touted
like he is there will be some pressure on him but hell have good guys with him
both from skills and leadership perspectives. “Hes not going to have the weight
of the world on his shoulders and have to worry about carrying our franchise
because weve got a good core as it is. Thats the way were approaching it. But
hes going to help, for sure.” Being re-united with Keenan, Knight and Rush
returnee John Lafontaine, another former Whitby teammate, appeals to Matthews,
who has a left-handed shot. “His systems fit our style,” Matthews said of his
past and future coach. “For the last couple of weeks it was pretty evident that
Edmonton was going to take me and now that its over its nice to have that monkey
off my back and we can start to focus on getting ready for the winter. “I havent
played (indoors) for a while but I practised with the Warriors and Derek over
the course of the summer a bit to get the rust off and work on the speed and
agility Ill need in the NLL game.” Minnesota was the first team in NLL history
to get three of the first four picks. Sorensen, 23, missed the senior indoor
season in Peterborough while rrehabbing from anterior cruciate ligament surgery
last May. Reggie Wayne Womens Jersey. . Swarm head
coach Joe Sullivan, an assistant coach during summers with the Mann Cup-champion
Lakers, is well aware of the potential possessed by the 6-6, 220-pounder, who
was field lacrosse captain at Ohio State. His older brother, Kyle, is a
Washington Stealth defenceman. “My rehab is right on schedule,” said Sorensen.
“Im expecting to be ready for late November, which is great.” Hes eager to join
Lakers buddy and Swarm captain Andrew Suitor in the Xcel Energy Center. “Their
youth speaks to why they were so successful last year,” he said. “They
transition the ball very well. They run and they run. Andrew is a good friend of
mine and Im looking forward to this.” Matisz, 6-5 and 220, has two summers of
senior indoor play under his belt with the Brooklin Redmen. In junior, the
23-year-old was 2010 OLA scoring champion with Burlington. Like Matthews and
Sorensen, Matisz, who attended Robert Morris University in Pennsylvania, also
was an NCAA field player. “Since I was eight years old, I wanted to go play
collegiate lacrosse and I did that and now that Im here and its done Im pretty
happy about it,” he said. “I couldnt be happier to go to the Minnesota Swarm. I
cant wait to contribute.” Jackson was with the Langley, B.C., senior team this
summer after playing on the Minto Cup championship team in Whitby with Matthews
and Knight. He also placed NCAA field ball at Limestone College. Hes smaller
than the first three players selected but excels at setting picks for teammates.
Jackson was asked what the lure was to join a league offering a first-year pro
salary of no more than $9,000. “I dont play the game for money at all,” he
replied. “Its been a dream of mine to play in this league since I was little.
Ive never thought about the money. Im just going to keep playing lacrosse like I
have since I was 10 years old.” Dhane Smith, who just turned 20, was overjoyed
to be picked by Buffalo. His cousin, Billy Dee Smith, is a Bandits veteran. “I
cant wait to be there and to get into camp,” Smith said. “Ill try my hardest.”
Resetaritis, who played field with the Hamilton Nationals this summer as well as
with the indoor Excelsiors, was considered the most pro-ready prospect available
so should be able to step right into the Calgary lineup. “To be taken in the
first round is something special, something Ill always remember,” he said.
“Coming to Ontario to play helped me develop as a player. Living close to the
border helped. Winning the Mann Cup my first year with Brampton, playing
alongside my brother (Frank Resetarits) was amazing. I learned a lot from Dan
Dawson. Im thrilled Ive been able to play most of my life in Canada.” Dinsdale
led the B.C. junior league in scoring this year playing for his home-town
Coquitlam team. Knight is much smaller at 5-9 than Matthews but his leadership
traits are outstanding. Knight was MVP of the 2011 Minto Cup tournament. Kri,
the first Rock pick, was on the Orangeville junior team that won the Canadian
junior championship this year. The head coach was Rock assistant coach Matt
Sawyer. Kri, 20, has been a Rock fan since birth. “I grew up on the other side
of the window (in Air Canada Centre) and now that Im going to be on the other
side its awesome,” said Kri. ’ ’ ’
