How do you replace the irreplaceable?Thats the question West Coast coach Adam Simpson is attempting to digest as he comes to grips with the news that star ruckman Nic Naitanui will spend up to a year on the AFL sidelines. Pink Patriots Jerseys.Naitanui will undergo a knee reconstruction after rupturing the anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee during Friday nights 25-point win over Hawthorn.Scans on Saturday morning confirmed the bad news, and Naitanui will meet with surgeons over the coming days to map out the best course of action.Naitanui is expected to undergo a traditional knee reconstruction instead of LARS, meaning he will miss most - if not all - of next season.West Coast catapulted themselves back into the premiership race with impressive wins over GWS and Hawthorn over the past fortnight.But Naitanuis injury has severely dented those chances.West Coasts form dipped markedly when Naitanui was sidelined for six games earlier this season.Scott Lycett was serviceable in the lead ruck role during that period, but he failed to exert anything close to the influence that Naitanui wields.And of greater concern was the back-up ruck role.Mitch Brown, Fraser McInnes, and Jonathan Giles all struggled in the role, while the Eagles are loath to move intercept king Jeremy McGovern away from defence to pinch-hit in the ruck.Simpson has flagged a shift to a more mobile ruck set-up during Naitanuis absence, floating the possibility of using forward Jack Darling as a pinch-hitter.West Coast are unlikely to finish in the top four, even if they beat the Crows in Adelaide on Friday night.A loss to the Crows would likely see West Coast drop to seventh - consigning them to an away elimination final.Longer term, West Coast are set to explore the option of luring GWS big man Rory Lobb their way.The 206cm forward/ruckman is contracted with GWS next season, but there are reports hes homesick and keen to be traded to a WA-based club.Fremantle initially appeared to be his best fit, given their lack of ready-made key position players.But with Naitanui now set to miss most of 2017, the Eagles could make a big play for the 23-year-old.Lobb has booted 25 goals this season, including a bag of four in his sides one-point loss to West Coast in round 21.

"Hes going to have hip surgery on Jan. 7, and hell be expected to rehabilitate for four to six months beyond that," Canucks general manager Mike Gillis said Friday in an interview.

Didier Drogba gave away the penalty that put Senegal one goal away from a major upset, but the veteran striker will get another chance -- probably his last -- at the World Cup after Salomon Kalous injury-time strike sealed the Ivorians place in Brazil next year. http://www.officialpatriotsnflauthenticshop.com/. 8 Iowa State on Saturday, sending the Cyclones to their third consecutive loss. The Longhorns (14-4, 3-2) got their biggest win of the season with their third in the row in the Big 12. PHOENIX -- The Los Angeles Dodgers close out their seasons longest road trip, 10 games, Sunday against NL West rival Arizona.As always, Dodgers manager Dave Roberts will be mixing and matching, calculating who is healthy enough to play and who has the best chance to be effective. The Dodgers have placed 28 players on the disabled list this year, most in MLB history.How has he done it?Roberts fumbled for an answer Saturday. I think its just a matter of not trying to, uh, I dont know. Its a good question.Then, after thinking the matter through, he said, I think a lot of it is the players just understanding that there are certain circumstances were presented with and weve got to find a way to make it work.So I think its not ideal or traditional some of the things thats weve done. But weve had to make it work.Saturdays 6-2 win over the Arizona Diamondbacks was a great example.In addition to such high-profile youngsters as Corey Seager and Joc Pederson, Roberts started a pitcher, Brock Stewart, who began the season at Class A Rancho Cucamonga.Stewart proceeded to outpitch the D-backs Shelby Miller, giving the Dodgers five solid innings in his fifth MLB start.Then there was another rookie, Andrew Toles, who made a perfect throw from left field to home to save a run and choke off a Diamondbacks rally.A huge play, Roberts said.Next rookie up for the Dodgers is right-hander Jose De Leon (2-0), who will make just the third start of his major league career. Black Patriots Jerseys. In 11 innings pitched for Los Angeles, he has given up six runs (five earned) on eight hits, including three home runs. He has 12 strikeouts and two walks in his first two starts.It will be the 65th game started by a rookie this year for the Dodgers.Roberts was asked to reflect back to spring training, and if he would have been scared to see some of these names in the lineup in a pennant chase.Probably so, he replied.There were some games where, you look at the lineups weve run out there in September, it kind of looks like a split-squad (spring training) game. But these are major league players playing on a playoff-contending team.You look at our roster and you project. This is not the way obviously we would have seen it playing out.Roberts praised the Dodgers scouts and player-development staff.The common factor with these young players is the pulse and the head. They dont scare off. Theyre really unshaken.The Diamondbacks will counter with Robbie Ray, who is 8-13 with a 4.55 ERA this season. He became one of just four pitchers in franchise history to record a 200-strikeout season when he beat the Rockies on Tuesday, allowing four runs over five innings with seven strikeouts.Ray is 3-3 in seven career starts against the Dodgers.
