that the Falcons were missing in last Sunday’s loss to the Steelers Black Grady Jarrett Jersey , but he may be back against the Buccaneers this Sunday.During an appearance on 92.9 The Game on Wednesday morning, Falcons coach Dan Quinn provided an update on Jarrett’s ankle injury. It was positive, although his status for the weekend remains up in the air at this point.“He’s definitely improving,” Quinn said, via the team’s website. “He’s going to work some on the side but no team reps. As we get into the later part of the week, I’ll have a better assessment. We’re definitely not ruling him out based on the work that he’s putting in.”Jarrett’s presence wouldn’t make up for all the other losses that the Falcons have taken on defense this year, but it might be enough to give them a chance to outscore the only team in the league allowing more points per game than they have. Carmelo Anthony is parting ways with the Houston Rockets just 13 games into his tenure with the franchise, of which he played 10, the team announced on Wednesday. The news was first reported by ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski. This makes consecutive failed fits in two playoff organizations for the struggling former All-Star Black Logan Paulsen Jersey , and what’s next for him is wildly unclear.“After much internal discussion, the Rockets will be parting ways with Carmelo Anthony and we are working toward a resolution,” Rockets general manager Daryl Morey said in a statement. “Carmelo had a tremendous approach during his time with the Rockets and accepted every role head coach Mike D’Antoni gave him. The fit we envisioned when Carmelo chose to sign with the Rockets has not materialized, therefore we thought it was best to move on as any other outcome would have been unfair to him.”Anthony signed with the Rockets for the veteran’s minimum this summer after he was traded by the Oklahoma City Thunder and subsequently waived by the Atlanta Hawks. He immediately accepted a bench role in Houston, but the team’s come out of the gates playing poorly on both sides of the ball poorly with a 5-7 record. Part of the solution, in the Rockets’ eyes, is to get rid of him. That’s where we’re at with Carmelo Anthony.There was some dispute over whether Anthony was really gone from Houston on Sunday night prior to the Rockets’ win over the Pacers. The New York Times’ Marc Stein originally reported that Melo had been told “his brief time in Houston would be ending soon,” but the team, and more directly general manager Daryl Morey denied it. Morey addressed the media and said he expected Anthony back in the rotation upon his return from an illness that kept him out of the team’s game against Indiana.That http://www.authenticsatlantafalcons.com/cheap-andy-levitre-jersey , of course, never happened.(It should also be noted that Houston looked as good as last season in the 12-point win without him, draining 20-of-46 threes.)Why are the Rockets waiving Anthony?For the obvious reason that he is no longer a good NBA player. Anthony’s had a lauded career as one of the league’s best scorers, but there’s little trace of that form of himself left.He’s scoring a career-worst 13.4 points per game at his lowest per 100 possession rate. That means his scoring rate isn’t the lowest it’s ever been merely because he’s playing the fewest minutes of his career, he’s shooting poorly, too. He’s firing at just 40.5 percent from the field(on pace for the second-worst of his career) and a brutal 32.8 percent from 3-point range.And his defense ... is just as bad as always.Simply put, modern basketball hasn’t allowed Melo to age gracefully.What’s Anthony going to do next?That’s a tough question. After two stints in OKC and Houston gone horribly wrong, he’s going to struggle to find another interested party.Anthony might need to sit on the sidelines for a few months before someone can convince themselves he’s worth another try.And he might need to consider the idea that nobody will reach that point again.
