FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- The New England Patriots officially activated running back Dion Lewis to their 53-man roster Saturday, the team announced. The move comes almost one year to the day that Lewis tore his left ACL in a Nov. 8 game against the Washington Redskins.The Patriots had an open roster spot after waiving running back Tyler Gaffney on Thursday, and Lewis activation was widely anticipated. The team had until Nov. 17 to either activate him or place him on the injured reserve list.The 5-foot-8, 195-pound Lewis had opened the year on the physically unable to perform list after experiencing a setback that required a second surgery on his left knee (but not specifically his ACL). He has participated in eight practices since coming off the PUP list on Oct. 27.While Lewis is now officially activated to the 53-man roster, the Patriots still have a call to make on whether to include him on their 46-man game-day roster for Sunday nights home contest against the Seattle Seahawks. Those close to the situation have stressed that it will be a patient approach, and the Patriots have been pleased with Lewis primary replacement in the passing back role, James White.I think James White is a good player. What he does is good. Could somebody do it better? I dont know. But it would take quite a bit, I would say, based on where he is and how consistent hes been with what hes done, coach Bill Belichick said Friday. It would take somebody playing pretty good to be better than him.At his best, Lewis would seemingly fit that bill, as he was a sparkplug in seven games last season before tearing his ACL. He totaled 49 carries for 234 yards and two touchdowns to go along with 36 receptions for 388 yards and two touchdowns. Adidas NHL Jerseys From China . Louis. To which I would say two things: 1. Where there is smoke, there is or perhaps has been a little fire. Or, in other words, the two teams would appear to have at least spoken.

Darley ClassicThe annual grand final for Australias best sprinters, but this is unquestionably one of the weaker Darley Classics weve seen in recent times.Chautauquas absence leaves a big hole, and Buffering and 2014 hero Terravista are notable absentees, too; Lankan Rupee returns for another crack, but it remains to be seen if hes the force of old.So, with our top-grade sprinting ranks thinner than is usually the case, a great opportunity exists for one of the lesser lights.One in particular stands out, though as the reigning Newmarket Handicap champion its arguable The Quarterback should be characterised as such. Robbie Griffithss flagbearer has returned to racing this prep in great form, resuming with a dominant win down the Flemington straight before running an excellent (and somewhat unlucky) fourth in the Group 1 Manikato Stakes at Moonee Valley (where he was tipped in this column).Flemington is much more his go -- that first-up win was his fifth at the track and second over the straight six from three attempts -- and crucially The Quarterback has proven he is up to the task at weight-for-age. Looks a great each-way bet.Lankan Rupee cant be discounted if he comes on from his pleasing first-up run, while Fell Swoop is always thereabouts in these sprints and is a chance to finally break through at the top level.Our Boy Malachi is a born winner but has fallen short in Group 1 company before, and top mare English has a point to prove after three lacklustre efforts this campaign.Elsewhere, its more about potential than performance, with the likes of Spieth and Sheidel very good but needing to take the next step.Recommended bet: The Quarterback to win or each-way @ $5.50 with UBETEmirates StakesThe Emirates Stakes (nee Mackinnon) has been given a name change, a date change and a boost in prize money, doubled to $2 million. It features the usual mix of Cox Plate and Caulfield Cup contestants, but the favourite this year, The United States, comes via the Cantala Stakes, which was run until this year as the Emirates AFTER the Mackinnon.Confused? Good. The point is: History and trends are out the door.The market elect was very good in the Cantala, charging late into fourth, and is desperate for the 2000m of Saturdays race.The United States is already a weight-for-age winner over 10 furlongs, and has a clear chance on form and class, but he is backing up three Saturdays in a row and is yet to prove that Flemington is his track, having managed just one placing from four starts there.French galloper Vadamos led against the pattern in the Cox Plate, finishing a respectable fourth on ground softer than ideal. Internationals have a habit of improving markedly with a local run under their belt and the move to drier ground will suit. And this Group 1-winning stallions already excellent chances will be enhanced if Flemington favours on-pacers as it did on Oaks day. Top chance and could well start favourite on the day.Scottish was brave when leading in the Caulfield Cup and finding only Jameka too strong. He, like Vadamos, will progress and be suited on Saturday; whats more, Scottishs record at 2000m -- four starts for three wins -- bears cclose inspection.ddddddddddddappy Clapper was good in the Cox Plate and can run well on a firmer surface, while Chris Wallers import Endless Drama brings sharp European form and should be respected off an effortless trial win.Recommended bet: Vadamos to win @ $4.60 with UBET but couple him with Scottish in exotics.Best BetCanterbury Race 7, No.4 Religify @ $1.90 with UBETScratched from Hawkesbury on Thursday for this race, and with good reason: Religify on Saturday is about as close to a good thing as you can get. He was game in defeat second-up on ground much softer than ideal, and moves here to the firm going he relishes. Barrier one around Canterbury will suit this front-runner, and, while hes yet to win at this trip, hes found a very weak race and will never get a better chance to do so. Realistically, theres nothing in this field that can beat Religify apart from himself. Get on at the current quote. Hell start shorter.Over the OddsFlemington Race 3, No.1 Francis Of Assisi @ $3.30 with UBETGodolphin have targeted this race in the past with their UK stayers, and they have a live chance this year in the shape of Francis Of Assisi. The dual-purpose front-runner showed he had acclimatised well when winning the Group 3 Bendigo Cup by three lengths. Hell have company at the head of affairs thanks to market rival Tom Melbourne, who was nutted by Oceanographer in the Lexus Stakes. But Oceanographer didnt do a great deal for the form in the Melbourne Cup, whereas Francis Of Assisi was close-up behind Cup fourth Qewy two starts back at Goodwood. That strikes me as the stronger form, and Im expecting the Godolphin gelding to sit off Tom Melbourne and run past him in the straight. Should be favourite but at the present time isnt.Under the OddsFlemington Race 6, No.1 Real Love @ $10 with UBETA classy mare but is starting to show the effects of a tough campaign. Ran well in the Caulfield Cup off a hard run fourth-up, then was very plain when a well-beaten sixth behind Oceanographer in the Lexus. The Matriarch looks a tough race to win this year; even at her best Real Love would have her work cut out under 59.5kg from barrier No. 15. But as it is, this race smacks of an afterthought. Should be much longer than $10.Lay of the DayCanterbury Race 3, No.2 Sarajevo @ $4.80 with UBETHas had a stable change and this ones (dwindling) band of followers will hope the new surroundings can spark something. His best form trumps pretty much anything on offer here, and he drops in class for this, but Sarajevo keeps finding new and ingenious ways to get beaten. There are two or three handy types in opposition, namely Mr Manhattan and Painte, and surely either of those rank as safer betting propositions.Multi of the WeekendFlemington Race 3, No.1 Francis Of Assisi - PLACE @ $1.42 Flemington Race 7, No.5 Vadamos - PLACE @ $1.90 Flemington Race 9, No.6 Lord Aspen - PLACE @ $3.15 Canterbury Race 6, No.5 Sir Plush - WIN @ $2.80 Canterbury Race 7, No.4 Religify - WIN @ $1.90 Morphettville Race 7, No.5 Royal Rumble - PLACE @ $1.76 Chiefs Jerseys China Cheap Nike Chargers Jerseys Cheap Nike Raiders Jerseys Wholesale Cowboys Jerseys China Cheap Nike Giants Jerseys Philadelphia Eagles Jerseys For Sale Wholesale Redskins Jerseys China Cheap Nike Lions Jerseys Packers Jerseys China Cheap Vikings Jerseys Free Shipping Cheap Panthers Jerseys Hoodies Cheap Saints Jerseys Free Shipping Cheap Nike Buccaneers Jerseys Cardinals Jerseys China Cheap Rams Jerseys Hoodies Cheap Nike 49ers Jerseys Seahawks Jerseys China Bears Jerseys China Cheap Nike Bills Jerseys Ravens Jerseys China Wholesale Falcons Jerseys China ' ' '
