Dan Carters agent has rejected any implication his client has been involved in doping after a report in France claimed he - and Joe Rokocoko - had tested positive for steroids. John-Michael Liles Hurricanes Jersey . LEquipe reported late on Thursday that the former New Zealand internationals failed a drug test after their club Racing 92 beat Toulon in the French Top 14 final in Barcelona on June 24.Their Argentine team-mate Juan Imhoff was also involved in the operation carried out by French Anti-Doping Agency (AFLD), according to the paper. However, Carters management company, Essentially Group, which also represents Rokocoko, says it is relaxed about the situation because Racings club doctor had filled in all the required documents.Simon Porter, an Auckland-based player agent with the group, said this meant they had a Therapeutic Use Exemption (TUE) allowing them to use the corticosteroid medication.We were reassured that there was nothing to worry about, that there was no wrongdoing, that there was no case to answer for, he told TVNZ.Its just a therapeutic use, cortisone is a common drug used to treat pain and inflammation.Porter added that the players had been blindsided by the news being leaked.The boys had been told that they had nothing to worry about. Theyre not enjoying the attention but theyre pretty relaxed about it all because theyre confident that everything is in order and everything is fine, he said. Joe Rokococo has also been named by LEquipe Fly-half Carter, who has played 112 Tests for New Zealand, was recovering from a calf injury ahead of the Top 14 final, while Rokocoko, a winger who represented New Zealand 68 times, had a knee problem.Corticosteroids are generally used to reduce inflammation.LEquipe said that once alerted by the AFLD, the French Rugby Federation had 40 days to investigate the trio, who all played major roles in Racings upset 29-21 win over Toulon.If the probe fails to find a medical reason for the corticosteroid use, then they could face disciplinary action.However, Racings statement in response to the story appeared to indicate TUEs were not in place, with the club confident they were not required.The statement read: All the medical acts carried out on the players cited by the media have been in total respect of national and international anti-doping rules, as well as in the sense of administrative and medical procedures.It is treatment administered in an authorised manner, provided in response to proven pathologies, several days before the Top 14 final and not needing a TUE.Racing 92 will collaborate with all the relevant medical investigative authorities in order for the debate to subside and so everyone is given a full understanding.All the medical protocols are clear. Transparency will be total. Were on the side of those who fight for a clean and respectful sport.Juan Imhoff, Joe Rokocoko and Dan Carter are everyday examples of behaviour, generosity and ethics.You can watch Englands tour of Bangladesh, plus Premier League football and the Japan Grand Prix on Sky Sports.

The Blue Jackets announced the injury through their official Twitter account Friday afternoon. Gaborik, 31, has scored five goals and six assists in 17 games with the Blue Jackets in 2013-14.ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. - Once safety DaNorris Searcy and the Buffalo Bills defence chased Cleveland Browns starter Brian Hoyer, they werent going to let Johnny Manziel change the outcome.Searcy intercepted Hoyer twice, defensive end Jerry Hughes scored on an 18-yard fumble return and tackle Kyle Williams forced Manziel to throw a key incompletion in the final minutes to secure a 26-10 win over the Browns on Sunday.It didnt change too much, said Searcy, of the Bills approach after Manziel took over with 12:01 left. Coming on the field, we knew he was in there. We just told each other to look for (bootlegs).Coach Doug Marrone was more relieved by how the Bills overcame a sloppy first half.Buffalo took control by scoring touchdowns 10 seconds apart midway through the third quarter. Kyle Orton bounced back from two interceptions by throwing a 3-yard touchdown pass to Chris Hogan. And then Hughes returned Terrance Wests fumble on the Browns next play from scrimmage.I concentrate on my own team, Marrone said, when asked about Manziel. Theres not a lot of film on him, so youve got to see how he plays.Manziel did provide an initial spark in enjoying his most significant playing time of the season, and in his first appearance since a 23-21 loss to Baltimore in Week 3. The rookie first-round pick capped an eight-play, 80-yard drive with a 10-yard touchdown run that cut the Bills lead to 20-10.The Bills then put the clamps on Manziel on Clevelands next possession. Williams got in Manziels face and forced what was initially ruled a fumble before a replay review ruled it an incomplete pass.The Browns then gave up the ball on downs on the next play, when Manziel completed a 5-yard pass to Miles Austin on fourth-and-6.And just like that, the Bills (7-5) are still very much alive in a jumbled AFC playoff picture. And the Browns (7-5) had a dent put in their playoff hopes. Cleveland now trails Cincinnati (8-3-1) by 1 1/2 games in the AFC North, and suddenly faces questions at quarterback.Coach Mike Pettine, who spent last season as the Bills defensive co-ordinator, said its too early to tell who will start against Indianapolis next week.Im not going to put it all on Brian, Pettine said of Hoyer, who has now thrown six interceptions iin his past three starts. Cam Ward Hurricanes Jersey. Sometimes you just need change for the sake of change. Well scope it out to a staff decision, and well make the evaluation.Hoyer insisted that this is still my team, but acknowledged the decision is out of his hands.Im never going to hang my head and feel sorry for myself, he said. We have four games and whatever coach decides to do, Ill be here to support this team.As for Manziel, he capped a tumultuous nine-day stretch. It began with him being confronted during an altercation with an aggressive fan in the lobby of his apartment last weekend. And now theres a chance he could be in line to start.Thats up to coach Pettine, Manziel said. But if that is the case, and my name is called, I definitely will be ready.Neither team seemed ready in a game that featured a sloppy first half that ended with the Browns up 3-0 on Billy Cundiffs 22-yard field goal.Cundiff missed on a 37-yard attempt wide right, and Hoyer threw an interception at midfield with 62 seconds left.The Bills failed to capitalize when Carpenters 53-yard attempt was blocked by Joe Haden. Orton got off to a tough start, too, after being intercepted in the end zone by Jim Leonhard.After Orton and Hughes put Buffalo up 14-3, Carpenter secured the win by hitting all four field goal attempts in the fourth quarter.The Bills were back home after a severe snowstorm forced them to relocate to Detroit, where they routed the New York Jets 38-3 last Monday night. With temperatures in the mid-50s on Sunday, there were only a few remnants of the 6-plus-feet of snow that fell on the Buffalo region.Its great. We wanted to come out and win for the fans, Searcy said. They werent able to be with us on Monday night, so to have a game back in (Orchard Park), and get a win for them was good.NOTES: Austin was taken to a hospital for precautionary reasons after experiencing what the team called abdominal discomfort following the game. ... Browns WR Josh Gordon had seven catches for 75 yards in his second game since serving a 10-game NFL suspension for violating the leagues substance abuse policy. ...

FIFA said Ethiopia forfeited its 2-1 win in Botswana on June 8 because Minyahile Beyene played in that game when he was suspended for receiving two yellow cards in earlier qualifiers. FIFA has awarded the match to Botswana 3-0. The sanction means Ethiopia is now only two points ahead of South Africa and three ahead of Botswana and not guaranteed a place in Africas final playoffs for the World Cup ahead of the final round of Group A games in September. FIFAs disciplinary committee also fined Ethiopias federation 6,000 Swiss francs ($6,348). The Ethiopian Football Federation is unlikely to appeal the punishment having already admitted that Minyahile should not have played in Botswana. Ethiopia beat South Africa 2-1 at home in its latest game on June 16 and thought then that it had qualified for the 10-team playoffs, which will decide Africas five countries at the World Cup in Brazil. Ethiopia has never played at the World Cup. However, FIFA opened disciplinary proceedings against Ethiopia on the same day over Minyahiles eligibility. South Africa, on eight points, is at home to Botswana in the final round of games on Sept. 6. Ethiopia, now on 10 points, faces an away game against Central African Republic, which could be played in a neutral country because of ongoing unrest in the country. Botswana, now with seven points, also has an outside chance of qualifying for the playoffs if it beats South Africa and Ethiopia loses to Central African Republic, which cannot qualify.

Courtney Lee Jersey . -- Kurt Buschs Sunday at Martinsville Speedway, in some ways, was like his career wrapped into one afternoon. http://www.nbaknicksproshop.com/womens-willis-reed-basketball-jersey/ .com) - The NFL is investigating whether the New England Patriots intentionally deflated balls during Sundays AFC Championship Game against Indianapolis.ST. PAUL, Minn. -- The Minnesota Wild traded for goaltender Ilya Bryzgalov on Tuesday in conjunction with their decision to shut down ailing veteran Niklas Backstrom. The Wild sent a fourth-round draft pick to Edmonton to complete the deal one day before the NHL trade deadline. General manager Chuck Fletcher said the team must assume that neither Backstrom nor Josh Harding will be healthy enough to mind the net again this season. Rookie Darcy Kuemper has been stellar in their absence, but with a finishing stretch of 20 games in 37 days starting Saturday, hes not enough. "We have a lot of work ahead of us to get where we want to get to, but clearly having two quality goaltenders was very important," Fletcher said. Kuemper has started 15 straight games, so Bryzgalov is more for insurance, though hes certain to have his time, too. The Wild are 14-4-2 in 2014 and in firm control of the first wild-card spot in the Western Conference playoff race. "I will do my job as best I can. Making the decisions on who is supposed to play is not my job," Bryzgalov said on a conference call. He added: "I look at this as a great opportunity for me to play, and yeah its like a new challenge." Backstrom has been bothered by injuries all season, most notably to his midsection that will probably prompt surgery, and the 36-year-old has a career-worst 3.02 goals-against average over 21 games. Fletcher told him Monday of their preference to hold him out until training camp. "His pain threshold is tremendous," Fletcher said. "Hes a competitive guy and I know hes really disappointed because the team has taken a really strong step the last couple months. Hes been through some of the lean times, and I know he wants to be a part of it but our goal for Nik is to get him healthy." Harding was superb early in the season, but the 2013 Masterton Trophy winner -- for sportsmanship, dedication and perseverance -- has not played at all in 2014 due to illness related to medication for multiple sclerosis. With not much more than a month left in the regular season and Harding not yet ready to resume skating, Fletcher said hes probably finished until the ffall, too. Patrick Ewing Knicks Jersey. The search for a replacement intensified in the last couple of days. Martin Brodeur and Jaroslav Halak also were potentially available via trade, but their price was far higher than what it took to nab Bryzgalov. The 33-year-old Russian has a 5-8-5 record in 20 games for the Oilers this season, with an ugly 3.01 goals-against average. Hes on an expiring contract, a requirement for the Wild. This is a rental, plain and simple. Thats largely because Kuemper has tied a Wild rookie record with 11 wins and since Jan. 7 has a 1.70 GAA with two shutouts and a .939 save percentage. "Weve always felt hed be a very good No. 1 goalie down the road, and we just didnt realize down the road would mean this January and February," Fletcher said. The pick sent to Edmonton was originally acquired last year from Buffalo in the trade that brought first-line right wing Jason Pominville to Minnesota. Bryzgalov has 38 games of playoff experience over five postseasons with Anaheim, Phoenix and Philadelphia, including three stellar starts against the Wild in the Western Conference quarterfinals in 2007. He stopped 73 of 77 shots in the first three games of that series, all Ducks victories. Bryzgalov struggled in defeat in the next game, Jean-Sebastien Giguere replaced him thereafter and the Ducks went on to win the Stanley Cup. Bryzgalovs career record is 213-157-50, including a 42-20-6 mark for the Coyotes during the 2009-10 season, his best in the NHL. He had a 2.29 goals-against average and a .920 save percentage. Then came his ill-fated time in Philadelphia. The Flyers signed him to a $51 million, nine-year contract in 2011 and used a salary-cap compliance buyout to release him last June, just two seasons into the megadeal. General manager Paul Holmgren said then the contract was "a costly mistake." Bryzgalov didnt sign with the Oilers until last November. After signing goalie Ben Scrivens to a two-year contract extension last week, the Oilers took their first step away from Bryzgalov. Then they acquired goalie Viktor Fasth from Anaheim on Tuesday for a fifth-round draft pick this summer and a third-round selection in 2015.
