Things look pretty good for the Chiefs in the injury department heading into the Super Bowl. There are no reported injuries and all players practiced in full. Kansas received an amended notice of allegations with another allegation. The NBA All-Star game will end the game in a new way for the league.
Here is your daily Dr. Feelgood…
Former Philadelphia Eagles QB Donovan McNabb talked to the Chiefs before Thursday’s practice. McNabb played for Andy Reid when Reid coaches the Eagles. They went to one Super Bowl together.
All Chiefs players practiced in full Thursday. There are no injuries to report.
The NCAA amended the notice of allegations previously sent to Kansas for violations in the basketball and football programs. Another minor violation in football was added. The violation reportedly happened under new coach Les Miles when football analysts were reportedly coaching players on the field. That is not allowed for some reason.
The Carolina Panthers and TE Greg Olson agreed to part ways. Carolina can’t release him until after the Super Bowl.
The SEC announced that it distributed an average of $44.6 million per school for the 2019 fiscal year.
The league and players association agreed to extend the current CBA through February 7. They are working towards a new agreement prior to the regular season which starts in late February.
The NBA All-Star game will use the Elam Ending. In honor of Kobe Bryant, the Final Target Score will be 24 points more than the score of the leading team entering the quarter. The clock is turned off in the Elam Ending and the first team to the Final Target Score wins.
WHAT TO WATCH: There isn’t much to watch on Friday. If you do want a game to watch I would go with VCU at Rhode Island. Get to bed early so you can get through a long day of college basketball on Saturday and the Super Bowl on Sunday.
PODCAST: In the Thursday podcast, I talked about the Super Bowl coming up on Sunday, the college basketball in the early part of the week, Major League Baseball news and more.
