Newly acquired Eagles defensive end Michael Bennett has been indicted by a grand jury in Harris County, Texas, for allegedly injuring a 66-year-old paraplegic woman after Super Bowl 51 in February 2017, according to the Harris County District Attorney’s office.
The Eagles released a statement saying the team is aware of the situation and is gathering more information, but they will not further comment at this time.
Eagles Statement on Michael Bennett: We are aware of the situation involving Michael Bennett and are in the process of gathering more information. Because this is an ongoing legal matter, we will have no further comment at this time.
While performing in The Spring League in Austin, Texas, the controversial quarterback looked like his old self when he threw a touchdown pass in the first quarter of the matchup.
Manziel finished 9 of 15 for 83 yards and a score, but also took three sacks in the team’s 11-7 loss. Despite finding the developmental league game frustrating at times, he was just happy to be back on the field.
It’s disappointing, some of the things that happened, Manziel said, via ESPN, but nevertheless, it’s a huge step for me. I put pads back on. A lot of people wrote me off just to even get to this point. I’m definitely emotional about it. I’m definitely happy about it. This isn’t the end goal for me, but I’m having fun again. I have a smile on my face.
Let’s take a look at Andrew McCutchen of the San Francisco Giants. He started the season 2-for-24 (.083) with six strikeouts — and negative fantasy points as a result. But on April 7, he went off with a 6-for-7 night including three extra-base hits — one of which was a walk-off three-run blast in the 14th inning. Suddenly, he’s batting .258 on the season and has 16 total fantasy points for the week and he’s in no danger of being on the most-dropped list.
Conversely, how much louder would the boos be for Giancarlo Stanton if not for his 2-HR, 16 fantasy point Opening Day? Since then, he’s managed to go just 4-for-37 (.108) with 19 strikeouts, and his overall fantasy point total remains at 16. Yet, if Stanton goes 2-for-4 with a few balls either slamming into or sailing over the outfield wall in his next outing, all is likely to be sunshine and rainbows.
