Jonas Valanciunas, who the Raptors envision

St. Louis, MO (SportsNetwork.com) - The St. Louis Rams will be without tackle Jake Long and wide receiver Brian Quick for the remainder of the season after both players were injured during Sundays loss in Kansas City. Long suffered a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his knee for the second time in less than a year and Quick has significant damage to his shoulder, Rams coach Jeff Fisher said Monday. In all, six players left Sundays game and Fisher said they team would be without a number of guys in practice this week as it gears up for a game against San Francisco this weekend. Long, the former No. 1 draft pick and starting left tackle, had started 22 games for the Rams since they signed him prior to last season. He tore both the anterior and medial collateral ligaments in his right in Week 16 last year. Quick, a third-year receiver, had 25 catches for 375 yards and three touchdowns in seven games this season. The Rams, of course, had already lost quarterback Sam Bradford to a season- ending knee injury, and defensive end Chris Long has been out since having ankle surgery last month. Nick Bonino Jersey . The team said Saturday that the 36-year-old Robidas is expected to miss four to six months, jeopardizing his return this season. He was injured when he slid hard into the boards in the second period of a 2-1 shootout loss to Chicago on Friday. Daniel Sprong Jersey . They showered him with "MVP! MVP!" chants. In many ways, it seemed like hed never been gone. http://www.penguinsauthenticofficial.co … ng-jersey/ .Y. - Major League Soccer is prepared to start its season this weekend even if there isnt a labour deal with its referees and other on-field officials. Bryan Trottier Jersey . His team rose to the occasion Sunday with a 3-1 victory over Sweden in the bronze-medal game. "The sting from yesterday is not something we hid from or pretend didnt happen," Dineen said. Pascal Dupuis Jersey . Fans holding laudatory signs started showing up at Yankee Stadium when the gates opened at 4 p.m. Monday, an hour early in order to give them a chance to watch the New York captain take batting practice.With the Toronto Raptors celebrating their 20th anniversary season in 2014-15, Josh Lewenberg and TSN.ca take a look back at the franchises first two decades with weekly Top Five lists, counting down the standout and signature players and moments in team history. 5. Keon Clark For a host of reasons, many of them unrelated to basketball, Clark never reached his immense potential as a defender in the NBA. That said, his best years came in Toronto, where he served as a rim protector off the bench for a pair of Raptors playoff teams. Those two teams he was a part of both rank in the franchises top three seasons in defensive efficiency. A long and athletic shot blocker, Clark is a big reason why. The 6-foot-11 centre swatted 1.8 shots per game as a member of the Raptors - the second-highest mark in team history. He owns the franchises best ever defensive rating. 4. Amir Johnson Johnson has anchored the Raptors defence for the better part of the last five years and was a catalyst in the teams drastic turnaround on that end after Dwane Casey took over in 2011. Often unheralded for his work, the 6-foot-9 forward has a way of changing games in subtle ways, most of them on the defensive end, where his versatility sets him apart. In addition to protecting the rim, Johnson can step out and guard stretch bigs. He may be the franchises best ever help defender, making up for the mistakes of his teammates - including young centre Jonas Valanciunas, who the Raptors envision being on this list one day. After years of wear and tear - as a result of playing through a myriad of injuries - Johnson has lost a lot of his speed and athleticism, but remains a plus defender thanks to his instincts. Hes almost always where he needs to be. 3. Marcus Camby Camby will go down as one of the NBAs all-time greatest shot blockers. The caveat for the purposes of this list, however, is he spent only two of his 17 seasons with the Raptors. Selected with the second overall pick in one of the best drafts ever, the Raptors were impatient with the lanky centre, exchanging him for veteran help in Charles Oakley -- a great defender in his own right. But even as a young player who was injury prone and erratic offensively, Camby made an immediate impact as a rim protector for a couple of losing Raptors clubs. Camby blocked a ridiculous 2.9 shots per game as a Raptor - by faar the highest mark in franchise history - including an NBA-best 3.dddddddddddd7 in his second and final year with the team. He would go on to win the 2006-07 Defensive Player of the Year award with Denver and made four NBA All-Defensive teams (two first, two second). 2. Antonio Davis Davis spent the bulk of his six seasons as a Raptor playing undersized at the centre position, but thanks to his toughness, positioning and defensive knowhow he was rarely taken advantage of. Although he earned All-Star recognition in 2001, most of what made him effective, especially on defence, went under the radar. Davis was a true workhorse and an excellent individual and help defender in the low post, anchoring some, if not the most efficient defensive teams in the franchises history. He ranks fourth on the Raptors all-time block list (405) and fifth in blocks per game (1.3). 1. Doug Christie Christie is not only the franchises best ever perimeter defender, he was among the leagues elite stoppers at a time in which his position was loaded with talented scorers to go up against almost every night. At 6-foot-6, he had the size to guard three positions on the floor. Although he wasnt especially fast or athletic, he made up for it with his defensive instincts. Impressively, Christie is the Raptors all-time steals leader (664), totaling 112 more than second-place Morris Peterson, despite appearing in 228 fewer games with the team. Christie is the only player in club history to average over two steals per game (2.1) during his tenure and ranked top five in the league in that category in three of his four full seasons with Toronto. He didnt get recognized for his work on D until moving on to Sacramento, where he was named to three NBA All-Defensive second teams and one first team. Honourable mention: Tracy McGrady, Donyell Marshall, Charles Oakley, Jerome Williams, Anthony Parker, Kyle Lowry, Morris Peterson, Alvin Williams, Kevin Willis, James Johnson, Alvin Robertson, Michael Stewart Expert picks: Ryan Wolstat, Toronto Sun 1. Amir Johnson - The stats dont lie, covers for everyones mistakes 2. Doug Christie - All-NBA caliber perimeter defender 3. Antonio Davis - Undersized but extremely effective 4. Keon Clark - Ridiculous shot blocker, was a great rim protector 5. Charles Oakley - Tough, smart, always in the right place Cheap NFL Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Wholesale NFL Jerseys Jerseys From China Wholesale NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
