HOUSTON (AP)The NFL players’ union will be making a push for improved equipment and for more consistent compliance with the concussion protocol. At their annual Super Bowl news conference Thursday Vontaze Burfict Jersey White , the NFL Players Association also insisted there will be no extension of the 10-year labor agreement signed in 2011. But the union would be open to a renegotiation before that deal expires. ”There’s a need to up the research and what sort of equipment we can look at,” said Bengals offensive tackle Eric Winston, the union president. ”A new helmet, a new design to the helmet? It seems like the medical has come so far and with changing rules it has come a long way, but it doesn’t seem we have with helmets and shoulder pads.” Winston, a 10-year veteran, wants the union to look into what technology is being used for equipment. ”How can we make that better?” he asked. Winston also expressed concern about how the concussion protocols are administered, and several union members pointed out the Matt Moore situation. Miami’s backup quarterback was bleeding from the mouth yet allowed to return to the playoff game at Pittsburgh last month. The concussion protocol wasn’t strictly followed, the league and union determined. ”We have to work with the teams because there has to be better adherence to the concussion protocol,” he said. ”There were a handful of times we investigated and that’s too many. We have to get those numbers down to zero.” But Winston, Giants linebacker Mark Herzlich and NFLPA Executive Director DeMaurice Smith all praised a change in the way players are dealing with head trauma. ”There’s definitely been a culture change,” said Herzlich, who missed two games with a concussion this season. ”There’s more of an understanding of the dangers of concussions, more recognition. ”For the most part Womens Clark Harris Jersey , it’s working well. But Matt Moore, that’s something that can’t happen.” Before presenting the Whizzer White Award for community service to Eagles safety Malcolm Jenkins, Smith and other union representatives addressed several other issues. -Smith scoffed at any notion of a CBA extension, saying ”no one is going to slip an addendum that is going to extend this (CBA) another few years.” When asked about a potential renegotiation, he cited such issues as Commissioner Roger Goodell’s disciplinary powers, stadium construction and financing, and TV contracts as topics that would be in the forefront. But he made it clear the players ”are not looking at giving back money to change it.” -The union is looking into marijuana’s potential use as a pain reliever. Smith said he would like to present a plan to the players association’s leadership and to the league once the information gathering is done. ”We want to look at the issue of opioids, but we also want to make sure we’re looking at the issue of how and to what extent players may be self-medicating if they can’t get medication elsewhere,” Smith said. ”We will be looking and asking the people who have looked and researched the issue of cannabis: are there legitimate medical uses; under what circumstances could they be used; and what circumstances may it make sense that this union would support a therapeutic use exemption. We’re not there yet.” -The players want to see more data regarding injuries and recovery times from Thursday night games before making it an issue for discussion with the league. But Herzlich drew laughs when he said, ”As a player, it’s not fun playing them.” ”There’s not enough time to recover,” he added. ”We think the idea is to get more prime-time games and that’s fine as long as it’s not a safety and health issue.” -Winston said he and his ”brothers” in the union would stand firm by the side of any players who are affected by President Donald Trump’s policies toward Muslim countries. ”We have their backs,” he said. ”I’ll go stand with them. It’s simple, but the idea we are starting to turn away from ourselves as a country … I don’t think that’s who we are as a people.” — BALTIMORE (AP) — Lamar Jackson doesn’t recall many of the details of his first NFL start for the Baltimore Ravens Trey Hopkins Jersey White , except perhaps for the most important facet of that impressive performance against the Cincinnati Bengals last November.“I remember us winning the game. That was pretty cool,” he said. “That’s all I need to remember.”Taking over for injured quarterback Joe Flacco, Jackson carried 26 times for 119 yards and went 13 for 19 for 150 yards passing in a 24-21 victory. While he has no need to duplicate those lofty numbers in the rematch Sunday, the 2016 Heisman Trophy cited one task worth repeating.Article continues below ...“The year, the same result,” Jackson said.Jackson and the Ravens (3-2) are well equipped to do it again. With a slippery quarterback and a run-first offense, Baltimore faces a winless Cincinnati team that ranks 31st against the rush and last week allowed Arizona rookie quarterback Kyler Murray to ramble for 93 yards.That bodes well for Jackson, who’s thrown for 11 touchdowns and has run for 308 yards and a score.“You’ve got to respect him throwing the ball and know what he can do running the ball,” Bengals defensive end Carlos Dunlap said. “You’ve got to honor both of them, and last week we didn’t do a good enough job against Kyler, so they’re going to try to exploit that, too.”It’s been a rough start for the Bengals (0-5) under first-year coach Zac Taylor, whose mantra this week is: “What can we do to ramp it up a notch and get this first win?”Getting healthy would help. Wide receiver A.J. Green has been sidelined since training camp with an ankle injury, and another deep threat Clayton Fejedelem Jersey White , John Ross III, is on injured reserve with a shoulder injury. In addition, first-round pick Jonah Williams, an offensive tackle, underwent shoulder surgery in June and backup Cordy Glenn has yet to play because of a concussion.Some things to know about Sunday’s matchup:CLOSE CALLSNot only is the series tied at 23 wins apiece, but the last six games in Baltimore have been decided by seven points or fewer. Ravens coach John Harbaugh is 10-12 against Cincinnati, so he’s taking nothing for granted in this duel between teams on the opposite ends of the division.“They’ve had our number a number of times, and it’ll be a physical AFC North battle,” he insisted. “Andy Dalton is a proven quarterback in this league. He can play. He can make plays at any time. They have a great running back (Joe Mixon), physical offensive line in the run game and proven players on defense, too. So, we just expect their best, and we have to play our best to win.”LINE SHUFFLEThe Bengals expect to have yet another new look on the offensive line.Glenn is doubtful despite seeing limited duty at practice this week, and left tackle Andre Smith was wearing a protective boot after hurting his left ankle against Arizona. Guards John Jerry and guard Alex Redmond worked out at tackle during the week Womens Joe Mixon Jersey , just in case. Redmond is returning from a four-game suspension for violating the league’s policy on performance-enhancing substances.Also, backup center Billy Price is expected to start at left guard in place of rookie Michael Jordan, who has struggled.SACK ATTACKJackson was sacked five times by Pittsburgh last week after getting sacked four times one week earlier against Cleveland.“I just have to do a better job of getting out,” he said. “I’m not trying to set sack records for our offensive line.”The good news for Jackson is that Cincinnati has had little success getting at the quarterback, accumulating only six sacks in five games.Murray came in as the most-sacked quarterback in the league but was dropped only once Sunday, and his 24-yard run through the heart of the defense set up the winning field goal.OH NO (WINS) IN 2019The Bengals are 0-5 for the seventh time since 1990, the most in the league over that span. The last time they went 0-5 was 2008, when they dropped their first eight games under Marvin Lewis.Cincinnati’s worst start is 0-10 under Dave Shula in 1993. Taylor is the second head coach in Bengals history to lose his first five games; Sam Wyche also started 0-5 in 1984.The Bengals led in the fourth quarter of losses to Seattle, Buffalo and Arizona, with the Bills and Cardinals scoring in the closing minutes to pull it out.“Yeah, we’re 0-5 but we could very easily be 3-2,” Dalton said. “I don’t know what it is, but we’ve got to get it fixed.”
