The respective international federations for boxing and gymnastics say they will make individual rulings on the eligibility of Russian athletes for next months Rio Olympic Games.The International Olympic Committee opted against a blanket ban on Russia for running a state-sponsored doping programme, and asked each sport to vet their own proposed Russian competitors.Russia has qualified 11 boxers for Rio, including reigning amateur world champions Vitaly Dunaytsev and Evgeny Tishchenko.An International Boxing Association [AIBA] statement said: AIBA has taken note and supports the decision of the IOC Executive Board concerning the participation of Russian athletes in the Olympic Games Rio 2016.We are reviewing and analysing, on a case by case basis, the anti-doping record of the 11 Russian boxers currently qualified for Rio 2016. This information and the decision of AIBA in respect of the athletes eligibility will be submitted to the IOC for confirmation in due course.AIBA remains committed to the WADA Code and will deal with any breach of the AIBA Anti-Doping Regulations.And the Federation Internationale de Gymnastique also said it will fully adhere to the IOCs ruling, adding: The FIG will -- as soon as possible -- establish the Pool of Russian eligible athletes ... and will have it verified as requested... then forward it to all concerned parties.The International Tennis Federation has already said the Russian players nominated for Rio have been subject to a total of 205 drugs tests since 2014, and will be allowed to play.Cyclings world governing body may follow suit, with president Brian Cookson saying it would be difficult for us to ban an entire team.Last month athletics world governing body the IAAF banned all Russian track and field athletes from international competition unless they could prove they had been comprehensively tested outside Russia -- a decision supported by the IAAF.Weightlifting is the other sport most likely to issue a blanket ban on Russian competitors in Rio following a significant number of confirmed positive doping tests.The IOCs decision to pass the decision on to the individual sports federations has been widely criticised by anti-doping agencies and athletes.The United States Anti-Doping Agency [USADA] chief executive Travis Tygart said the IOC had missed a chance to assert its leadership and left behind a confusing mess.And World Anti-Doping Agency president Sir Craig Reedie said he was disappointed the IOC did not heed his organisations call for a blanket ban.However, archery has become the latest sport to confirm Russian athletes will be allowed to compete in Rio.World Archery, the sports international governing body, said Russias three qualified archers, Tuiana Dashidorzhieva, Ksenia Perova and Inna Stepanova, have all been tested extensively and never previously committed a doping offence.In a statement, World Archery expressed its shock and concern over recent doping revelations but added: The IOC executive board should be congratulated on its courageous decision not to put a blanket ban on the Russian Federation, which would have been extremely unfair to any clean Russian athlete, who had no part in any of the alleged activities mentioned in the McLaren Report.Colin White Jersey .

Hi Kerry, Its another day and here we are looking at another dubious hit to the head. In this case Blue Jackets forward Brandon Dubinsky elbowed Saku Koivu in the head about a second after he dished off the puck to a teammate, knocking him unconscious. Bobby Ryan Jersey . The (11-11-4) Jets are seventh in the Central Division with 26 points.

The news was first reported on Gonzalezs Twitter account and confirmed by the Rockies. Gonzalez has a six-week window before position players have their first workout at spring training in Arizona.With no single performance in Week 4 standing out, lets dig deeper into the new, improved QBR?and see who has the largest difference between their raw QBR and the opponent-adjusted figure.Biggest rank changeDropping four spots from number 10 down to 14, Sam Bradford is the only qualified quarterback to fall as many as four places last week. His QBR numbers are fairly similar (65.2 adjusted and 67.9 raw), but he lands in a crowded spot on the leaderboard when we take the opposition into account -- behind Matthew Stafford (65.8 adjusted), Tyrod Taylor (65.6) and Jameis Winston (65.5). Bradfords had the fortune of playing against Green Bay (26th), Carolina (29th) and the Giants (17th), all of whom rank in the bottom half in the league in adjusted QBR allowed.Bradford does have some tough games ahead in his former team, Philadelphia, which currently leads the league in adjusted QBR allowed, and Houston, which has allowed the third-lowest adjusted QBR. But those contests are juxtaposed with four easy division games for the Vikings against division rivals Chicago (31st) and Detroit (32nd) -- two meetings vs. each.Biggest change in QBROf the quarterbacks to make at least three starts through four weeks, Philip Rivers has the largest difference between his adjusted and raw QBR values. He moves only one spot in the rankings (drops from 6 to 7), but his raw QBR of 74.2 adjusts all the way down to 68.4. Rivers did post a fairly impressive 72.dddddddddddd9 raw QBR against New Orleans on Sunday, but the problem is that a 72.9 raw QBR against New Orleans is actually fairly unimpressive. Since the start of the 2015 season, it is only the 16th -best raw QBR New Orleans has allowed in a 20-game span. So even Rivers above-average-looking day gets heavily adjusted to 52.7 (near average) when factoring in the opponent. Rivers has also played against the Colts and Jags, both of whom are in the bottom third of the league in adjusted QBR defense.Biggest gain in QBRAlex Smith has faced a fairly rough set of defenses in his teams first four games, squaring off with three of the top 11 defenses (San Diego, Houston and Pittsburgh) in his first four games. His lone game outside a top 11 defense came against the Jets, who rank 30th. Things dont get much easier for Smith, as eight of his final 12 games come against teams currently in the top half of the league.It is also important to remember that the impact of opposing defenses over small stretches (such as four games), can certainly show large differences, but by the end of the season these differences tend to shrink. That is not to say they are not important, just that there is less tangible disparity in the quality of defenses in the NFL as more games are played. ' ' '
