GLENDALE, Ariz. Matt Murray Jersey . -- Arizona Cardinals rookie defensive tackle Robert Nkemdiche practiced for the first time in training camp Monday but said he will take the rest of his comeback from a high ankle sprain day by day.His camp debut was limited to individual drills, but that could change this week leading up to Arizonas trip to Houston for Sundays preseason game on national TV.I could [play Sunday], said Nkemdiche, who injured his right ankle during a pre-training camp quarterback school July 26. Im just going to listen to the staff and take it day by day and see how I feel and go with how I feel.After Mondays practice, the 29th overall pick said he felt good and that he trusted his ankle. He said the soreness in the ankle has worn off considerably.Hopefully, throughout the days it calms down and gets better daily, he said.Nkemdiche added that his action Monday was exactly the amount of work he wanted just to get used to it and put pressure on it and get some pressure on it and keep going. He added that hes extremely close to being 100 percent healthy, and that the main effects of not playing on it for a few weeks was not having the mobilization hes accustomed to.While he continues to work to strengthen his ankle, Nkemdiche said his mental game now is his strongest aspect. But after missing more than four weeks of camp, Nkemdiche didnt feel like he was playing catch-up Monday.I didnt feel like I was behind at all, Nkemdiche said. Really, just the ankle itself and just really getting it back used to those sharp movements and those explosive movements. Im just taking it day by day and listening to [Cardinals trainer] Tom [Reed] and going with the flow.Coach Bruce Arians said he was looking forward to seeing Nkemdiches power and how fast the rookie could adjust and learn.The past few weeks were hard on Nkemdiche, the rookie said, as he watched his teammates get reps daily. But he learned to be calm and patient through his injury, a motto that was repeated by his veteran teammates, who told him to take his comeback slow so he doesnt aggravate the injury and cause a longer delay in his return.Nkemdiche feels he has plenty of time to get in the flow of the defense with Arizonas season opener just four weeks away, but hes anxious to get on the field. His role this season will be limited, Arians said. Nkemdiche is expected to play 20 to 25 snaps per game, Arians added.I cant wait, Nkemdiche said. Ive been itching for a couple weeks now and theyve been telling me to chill: These injuries are no joke, so just really be patient with it and the right time will come.So, I cant wait. Ive been itching to get out there. Still itching to hit.Phil Kessel Jersey . -- In one brief spurt, Brazil turned a close game into a rout and proved again it will be a strong World Cup favourite. Tom Barrasso Jersey .C. -- Manny Malhotra had two goals and an assist, leading the Carolina Hurricanes to a 6-3 win over the Ottawa Senators on Saturday. http:///...riley-sheahan-jersey . The parade and rally were held to celebrate the Saskatchewan Roughriders 45-23 win over the Hamilton Tiger-Cats on Sunday in the CFLs championship game.SAN JOSE, Calif. -- For all that the San Jose Sharks accomplished with their overtime victory over Los Angeles in Game 3, they know it will mean very little if they dont back that win up with another at home against the defending Stanley Cup champion Kings. "We havent accomplished anything," Sharks coach Todd McLellan said. "We didnt get our work done in LA, and that put us behind the eight ball. The fact that we win Game 3, thats great, but we still are behind in the series and the series is getting shorter. The lifeline wasnt as long as it was in the past. Weve just got to find a way to get even. If our intensity or urgency drops because weve won a single game, I would be disappointed in our group." After taking it easy the day after San Joses 2-1 win, both teams stepped up preparation on Monday in advance of Game 4 on Tuesday night at the Shark Tank. The Kings arent about to feel complacent, considering they were less than 2 minutes away from losing Game 2 at home and have won just once in 10 road games since March. "We cant rest and just be comfortable with being a good home team," forward Justin Williams said. "We need to be killers on the road. Coming back with a 3-1 lead is certainly something were going to do our darnedest to do." The Kings came close to getting that elusive road win in Game 3 on Saturday when they fell in overtime after being called for two penalties in the final minute of regulation to set up Logan Coutures power-play goal in overtime. The second of those penalties particularly irked the Kings, who contend Trevor Lewis was pushed into San Jose goalie Antti Niemi by Patrick Marleau and shouldnt have been called for goaltender interference. That came one game after the Sharks complained about a late delay of game call on Marc-Edouard Vlasic that gave the Kings a two-man advantage and eventually led to two goals that gave Los Angeles a 4-3 win. The Kings look to rebound from their disappointment the same way the Sharks did from theirs. "Theres zero momentum," Kings coach Darryl Sutter said. "Once you get in the playoffs, theres zero momentum unless somebody is way better than somebody, and as you see, nobody is. If theres a carry-over, then youre probably not a playoff team." The home teams have won all three games so far this series and both teams are undefeated at home in the post-season this year. The Sharks have been dominant all season on home ice, going 17-2-5 in the regular season that included two wins over Los Angeles. The biggest reason for the home succcess has been a potent power play that has been far more efficient at the Shark Tank than on the road. Bryan Trottier Jersey. San Jose has scored on an NHL-best 28.4 per cent of power plays at home during the regular and post-season compared to just 13.6 per cent on the road. The difference has been even more stark in the post-season where the Sharks are 8-for-20 on the power play at home and just 1-for-16 on the road, including 0-for-7 the first two games in Los Angeles. San Jose did score one goal 5 seconds after the end of a power play in Game 2 against the Kings. Defenceman Dan Boyle said there was little difference other than the final results on the power play in Game 3, when he got the scoring started with a power-play goal 4 seconds into a man advantage early in the first period and Couture ended the game with a power-play goal in overtime. "Its about scoring goals," Boyle said. "If we dont score yesterday, you guys would be talking about how bad we are, how much were struggling. We had some good looks in L.A., we just didnt put the puck in the net. The one goal we had, the penalty had just expired. "The end of the day, youve just got to put the puck in the net and the first power play took, what? Three or four seconds. Thats not a good power play, thats execution. Its a won faceoff, its a guy going to the net. Thats just good execution." The Kings could get a boost with the potential return of forward Kyle Clifford, who has missed the past four games with an upper-body injury. Clifford scored three of his seven regular-season goals this year against the Sharks and all three of his career playoff goals came in a six-game series against San Jose two years ago. "He can give us that big physical, emotional lift that we can use right now," forward Colin Fraser said. "Hes a guy that doesnt take a shift off, and hes hard to play against. Ive played with him on and off for two years, and hes a big, physical player who keeps it simple. You know what youre going to get out of him every shift." NOTES: McLellan said he would consider dressing seven defencemen with F Marty Havlat once again sidelined with a lower-body injury. D Jason Demers, who has missed the past 11 games with a lower-body injury, skated with the forwards for part of practice. ... San Jose F Adam Burish, who was ruled out of the series with a broken right hand, took part in practice and remains hopeful he could return at some point this series. ------ AP Sports Writer Greg Beacham in El Segundo, Calif., contributed to this report. Cheap Jerseys Free Shipping NFL Jerseys Cheap Wholesale Authentic Jerseys Jerseys NFL China Wholesale Jerseys 2020 Wholesale Jerseys 2018 Discount NFL Jerseys ' ' '
