Linebacker Brandon Chubb lasted a couple of weeks with the Titans and he’ll be trying for a longer stay with another AFC South team.
The Colts announced on Monday that they have signed Chubb to their 90-man roster. Chubb spent last season on injured reserve with the Lions and he has also spent time with the 49ers and Rams since entering the league as an undrafted free agent in 2016.
The move comes a couple of days after Colts linebacker John Simon hurt his neck against the 49ers Will Richardson Jersey , but initial word out of Indy was that Simon avoided a serious injury. The Colts also traded linebacker Antonio Morrison to the Packers, so there should be some snaps for the taking in their preseason finale on Thursday.
Running back Tion Green was waived in a corresponding move. Green signed with the Colts earlier this month, but the former Lion did not get any work in preseason games.
RALEIGH, N.C. — Two teams that are not in line to make the playoffs will see if they can gain some good vibes nonetheless with the end of the regular season just about a week away.
The New York Rangers visit the Carolina Hurricanes for Saturday night’s game at PNC Arena.
These teams were contending for a playoff spot, but they have mostly fallen by the wayside.
Now it’s a matter of trying to put on strong performances the rest of the way.
“We want to play the right way Todd Gurley II Jersey ,” Carolina coach Bill Peters said.
The teams are in similar spots in the Eastern Conference standings below the wild-card playoff line.
The Hurricanes avoided official elimination with Friday night’s 4-1 victory at Washington, but their situation had become dire during the past couple of weeks.
The Hurricanes must win their remaining games along with the New Jersey Devils losing in regulation for the rest of the regular season to make the postseason.
Carolina has four games remaining, though Saturday night’s game marks the second-to-last home game.
“We’re not going to go out there and just throw our sticks on the ice,” Hurricanes goaltender Scott Darling said. “We want to finish strong.?
Rangers coach Alain Vigneault also said it’s an important time to conclude the schedule the right way.
“We’ve talked to our group about being professionals,” Vigneault said. “Having them to understand to come in every day whether it’s a practice or a game and give your best. (I’ve) given them very precise instructions on what we want them to do and how they can get better.”
The Rangers are 1-4-2 in their last seven games after allowing five goals in the third period of a 7-3 loss to Tampa Bay in its final home game.
Vigneault said he’s impressed with the positive reinforcements that have been provided from veterans such as defenseman Marc Staal and right winger Mats Zuccarello
“I’m very proud of how those two have conducted themselves A.J. Green Jersey ,” Vigneault, noting the positive examples that have been on display.”
For Staal, this will be another chance to play against his brother, Carolina center Jordan Staal.
The Hurricanes have called upon several younger players during the past couple of weeks.
Still, since the last home game they reassigned forward Warren Foegele and defenseman Roland McKeown to Charlotte of the American Hockey League.
Foegele Jeff Allen Jersey , 21, scored his first NHL goal and earned his first assist in his NHL debut against Ottawa on Monday and then added another goal the next night in New Jersey.
Carolina has had some recent shortcomings with special teams.
“Let’s not go to the box unnecessarily,” Peters said. “Let’s not take the penalties that are because of a lack of moving your feet.”
Hurricanes defenseman Justin Faulk returned to action Friday night after missing about a week with an upper-body injury. Peters said it was undetermined if Faulk would be used in both games on back-to-back nights.
The Rangers are 3-0-0 against Carolina this season, outscoring the Hurricanes by a combined 17-5 score. That includes a 6-3 win on March 12 when Jimmy Vesey recorded a hat trick and the Rangers blocked a season-high 30 shots.
New York is 14-3 in the last 17 meetings since April 8, 2014.
