  1. Saturday, 4:35 p.m. (NBC): Minnesota Vikings at San Fransisco 49ers After having to wait a week, Deebo Samuel makes his NFL playoff debut with the 49ers as the NFC's top seed with homefield advantage until the Super Bowl as long as they keep winning. Samuel, in his rookie year, has hauled in 57 receptions for 802 yards and three touchdowns. If he and the 49ers win, they'll host the winner of Sunday's game against the Seahawks and Packers. Saturday, 8:15 p.m. (CBS): Tennessee Titans at Baltimore Ravens This is a game with one active and one inactive Gamecock with Ryan Succop on injured reserve for the Titans while Hayden Hurst is active and a big piece of Baltimore's offense. Succop played in just six games this year battling a knee injury and was placed on injured reserve earlier this season, effectively ending his 11th NFL season. In his second NFL season, Hurst is putting up solid numbers for the first-place Ravens in their three tight end system, playing in all 16 games so far with 30 catches for 349 yards and two touchdowns. Whoever wins will play either the Texans or the Chiefs next Sunday. Sunday, 3:05 p.m. (CBS): Houston Texans at Kansas City Chiefs One of the longest tenured NFL Gamecocks goes up against a few new Gamecocks in the NFL. The Texans have Johnathan Joseph, who's in 14th year in the NFL—ninth with Houston—and has 51 tackles this season and one interception. Joseph was inactive for last week's wildcard game, a 22-19 overtime win over the Buffalo Bills. Gamecock rookie Rashad Fenton plays significant snaps in Kansas City's defensive backfield rotation. He's played in 12 games this year with 12 tackles, four passes defended and one interception. He's also forced a fumble as well. He's also a key contributor on special teams. Chris Lammons was signed to the Chiefs' practice squad Dec. 10 and hasn't played in a game yet. Sunday, 6:40 p.m. (FOX): Seattle Seahawks at Green Bay Packers There's only one Gamecock playing in the late game Sunday with it being Jadeveon Clowney, who came up with one of the biggest plays last week in a win over the Philadelphia Eagles. With the Eagles going in for what could have been a game-tying touchdown, Clowney sacked quarterback Josh McCown to end the drive and seal the win. He'd finish the game with five tackles, two for loss, and played 83 percent of the team's defensive snaps.
  2. Gamecocks in the NFL Week 16: Deebo Samuel, Johnathan Joseph set franchise records; Cook scores two TDs With two first-half catches in San Francisco’s Week 16 win over the Rams, Deebo Samuel passed Jerry Rice on the 49ers’ single-season rookie receiving list. Samuel’s 50th catch this season eclipsed Rice’s rookie season total of 49 in 1985. Samuel, who has more catches than any other San Francisco wide receiver this season, passed former All-Pro Gene Washington (51 catches in 1969) for the most single-season catches by a 49ers’ rookie receiver. With 700 yards receiving on the season, the former South Carolina star needs just 12 yards to pass Washington for second-most receiving yards for a rookie. Samuel was one of three Gamecocks in the NFL to set a franchise or personal record this week. With a second-quarter interception of Jameis Winston, Johnathan Joseph became the Houston Texans’ all-time leader in the category, and with two touchdown catches for New Orleans, Jared Cook brought his season total to a career-high eight touchdowns this season. Also of note, Melvin Ingram tied his season-high with three quarterback hits, Hayden Hurst had his third-most playing time this season, and Keisean Nixon returned the first two kicks of his career for a total 51 yards and had one tackle on defense. Here’s a rundown on how they did: Zack Bailey (2015-18), Tampa Bay Buccaneers OL: Bailey was placed on injured reserve Oct. 12 because of a foot/ankle injury he suffered in practice. Tampa Bay head coach Bruce Arians on Nov. 15 announced Bailey will not return this season.

It was only the fourth time he has played all of the Jags’ offensive snaps. The Jaguars ran for 115 yards. Jadeveon Clowney (2011-13), Seattle Seahawks DE: Clowney sat out for the second straight week with an ongoing core muscle injury.

Mike Davis (2012-15), Carolina Panthers RB: Davis was active and played 15 snaps (all on special teams). He had 11 carries for 25 yards and seven catches for 22 yards this season for the Bears before being released. Patrick DiMarco (2007-10), Buffalo Bills FB: DiMarco was active, started for the fifth time this season, and played 18 snaps (six on offense, 12 on special teams). He has five catches for 40 yards and three rushes for seven yards this season. Rashad Fenton (2015-18), Kansas City Chiefs CB: Fenton has sat out the past three weeks with a hamstring injury. It is unknown if he will play this coming week against the Chargers. He has a forced fumble, interception, 12 tackles, three passes defended and a QB hit this season. Stephon Gilmore (2009-11), New England Patriots CB: A week after Gilmore had two interceptions (one pick-six), he had one tackle and one pass defended. He has a career-high six interceptions (two pick-sixes), 19 passes defended and 45 tackles this season. Hayden Hurst (2015-17), Baltimore Ravens TE: Hurst had one catch for nine yards and played 55 percent of Baltimore’s offensive snaps, his third-most playing time this season. Garnet Thor has 28 catches for 314 yards and two touchdowns this season. Melvin Ingram (2009-11), Los Angeles Chargers OLB: Ingram had three tackles (one for loss) and three quarterback hits, tied for his most this season, and played 94 percent of the Chargers’ defensive snaps. Ingram has one interception, seven sacks, 47 tackles, 12 QB hits and a fumble recovery this season. Alshon Jeffery (2009-11), Philadelphia Eagles WR: Jeffery, who sat out two games earlier this season with a left ankle injury exited Philadelphia’s Week 14 game with another left foot and was put on injured reserve due to a Lisfranc injury in his left foot. He had 43 catches for 490 yards and four touchdowns and one rushing touchdown this season. Johnathan Joseph (2005), Houston Texans CB: Joseph played just six plays but had an interception. The pick gave him the all-time franchise lead (17) in the category. He has started 10 games this season and has one interception, 51 tackles and 13 passes defended.

Taylor Stallworth (2014-17), New Orleans Saints DT: Stallworth had three tackles and played 26 percent of the Saints’ defensive snaps. D.J. Swearinger (2009-12), Oakland Raiders S: Swearinger was cut by Oakland on Dec. 10. He had 48 tackles, two passes defended and a quarterback hit this season in four games with the Raiders and four games with the Arizona Cardinals. Darian Stewart (2006-09), Tampa Bay Buccaneers S: Stewart had one tackle and a pass defended. He has seven tackles and two passes defended this season.
  3. Deebo Samuel is proving to be a great fit in the San Francisco offense. 49ers coach Kyle Shanahan recognizes that he has a versatile play-maker in the former South Carolina Gamecocks standout and is ways to get the ball in Samuel’s hands. The rookie wide receiver got to show what he can do as a runner on a fun play with a fake and end-around toss. Samuel’s spin move to shake the chasing defenders before crossing the goal line got the attention of many fans on social media. Check out the 30-yard touchdown run in The Checkdown’s video below: The play was reviewed to see if Samuel’s foot touched the line on the spin. The call stood, so Samuel’s touchdown is official. San Francisco currently leads Seattle 13-0 in the first half. In addition to the run, Samuel has 3 receptions for 57 yards. The game is on NBC.
  4. Guess Texans just let go of him to quick.
  5. The 49ers won’t have to deal with holdouts from their first two draft picks after all. Nick Bosa and San Francisco agreed Thursday to the parameters surrounding a four-year, $33.5 million deal, as first reported by ESPN, which means the talented defensive end will report to training camp on time. Additionally, second-round pick, receiver Deebo Samuel, has also agreed to a deal, according to NFL Network. The team confirmed the signings Thursday afternoon. The 49ers’ first practice of training camp is scheduled for Saturday morning after players report Friday.
  6. NFL players, including Tom Brady, will have to be in approved helmets this season April 13, 2019 washingtonpost.com The 32 NFL players who ended last season wearing helmet models not approved by the league and the NFL Players Association will have no such option this coming season. The grandfather clause allowing players to wear prohibited helmet models has expired, and all NFL players will be required to wear better-performing helmets in the 2019 season. “The prohibited helmets will not be allowed in the locker room,” Jeff Miller, the NFL’s executive vice president of health and safety initiatives, said Friday. “A player will not be allowed on the field [wearing such a helmet].” Any team that knowingly allows a player to wear a prohibited helmet model would be subject to discipline by the league, Miller said during a conference call with reporters in which NFL and NFLPA safety officials announced the results of their latest round of joint safety-related laboratory testing of impacts on helmets. New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady reportedly is among the players who must switch helmet models. Brady wore an approved helmet for part of last season but reportedly switched back to his previous Riddell VSR-4 helmet model that is on the list of prohibited helmets. “You’ve seen something a certain way for a long period of time, so I like as much vision as possible with the peripheral vision,” Brady said last summer, according to Boston.com. “It’s all important — it all matters — so, yeah, just making sure it’s kind of similar to what the experience has always been.” The NFL and NFLPA are in their fifth year of testing various helmet models to study how they “withstand impacts comparable to what a player would experience on the field,” said Jeff Crandall, the chairman of the league’s engineering committee. The league and players’ union compile the results, rank the helmets and produce a poster in which helmet models are placed into three categories: green, yellow and red. The best-performing helmets are in the green category. The prohibited helmets are in red. Injury data has supported the results of the testing, according to the safety officials. “The impact tests in the laboratory correlate to the on-field experience,” said Kristy Arbogast, the NFLPA’s engineering consultant. The NFL announced in January that the number of concussions suffered by players was down sharply last season. There were 214 concussions suffered by players during the 2018 preseason and regular season, according to the league’s injury data. That was down from 281 concussions in 2017, a decrease of 24 percent. According to the league, 74 percent of players were wearing the better-performing helmet models in the green category by the end of last season. That was up from 41 percent at the beginning of the season. “The education process was thorough and the players were listening,” Miller said.
  7. Elliott Fry signs three-year deal with NFL squad April 12, 2019 kicker Elliott Fry is getting his shot at the NFL — the Chicago Bears announced Friday that they have signed the one-time college walk-on to a three-year deal. Fry will have to compete for a starting role against the two other kickers the Bears have signed this offseason after rookie Cody Parkey missed a crucial 43-yard field goal in the first round of the playoffs. Fry left South Carolina as the program’s all-time points leader and recently spent time in the now-defunct Alliance for American Football, reuniting with his former coach Steve Spurrier on the Orlando Apollos. With the Apollos, Fry made all 14 of his field goal attempts, with a long of 44 yards. At USC, Fry made 66 of his 88 field goal attempts and was nearly across four years of extra points, making 161 of 162 attempts. After his senior season, he stayed another year at Carolina to finish his double major.
  8. Will Muschamp breaks down Gamecocks at the NFL Combine March 01, 2018 The on-field part of the NFL Combine begins Friday. The first USC product at this year’s event will take the field Saturday, and in the following days there will be plenty of scouting reports available about the potential of tight end Hayden Hurst, linebacker Skai Moore, defensive tackle Taylor Stallworth and cornerback Jamarcus King. While we wait for those, here are Gamecocks head coach Will Muschamp’s scouting reports on each of the players. Muschamp was a defensive coordinator with the Miami Dolphins under Nick Saban for one season. Hayden Hurst Draft Projection: Second round Muschamp: “I think Hayden is going to do very well. He can block at the point of attack and stretch the field vertically. He’s got really good hands. I think more than anything, he has a competitive edge.” Skai Moore Draft Projection: Fourth round Muschamp: “Instinctive, can play against two-back run teams, can play in space, has pass rush ability, extremely smart.” Taylor Stallworth Draft Projection: Undrafted Muschamp: “Taylor Stallworth is a guy that I think is very under the radar based on the NFL people I talk to. He can hold the point inside, get matched up against a lesser guard and win in the pass rush, extremely bright, extremely intelligent, I think he’s got a tremendous upside.” Jamarcus King Draft Projection: Undrafted Muschamp: “Jamarcus King is a guy that brings you some length at the corner position, has long arms, made a lot of plays on the ball, made a tremendous leap from his junior year to his senior year in his play.” Muschamp also praised seniors Chris Lammons (DB), D.J. Smith (DB), Cory Helms (OL), Alan Knott (OL) and Dante Sawyer (DL), who were not invited to the combine. “Those guys played good football for us last year and all those guys will have an opportunity in camp whether they are drafted or not drafted,” Muschamp said. “They will have an opportunity to make teams.”
  9. ESPN: Duce Staley to interview for NFL coordinator job Feb. 19, 2018 According to a report from Tim McManus of ESPN, former South Carolina star running back Duce Staley will interview with Doug Pedersson for the vacant offensive coordinator job with the Philadelphia Eagles. Frank Reich left the job to take the job as Indianapolis Colts head coach. Staley has been with the Eagles since 2011, running backs coach since 2011. He was part of the staff that won the franchise’s first Super Bowl this season. The report also says Philadelphia wide receivers coach Mike Groh will interview. The former Airport High School star ran for 1,852 yards and 17 touchdowns in two seasons in Columbia. He went on to run for 5,785 yards and 24 touchdowns in 10 NFL seasons, three times surpassing 1,000 yards. He spent seven seasons in Philadelphia and then three in Pittsburgh. His son, Damani, plays for the Gamecocks.
  10. Zandi, Gamecocks hoping to prove NFL projections wrong April 25, 2017 This week could mark an inauspicious milestone for South Carolina, but former Gamecocks offensive lineman Mason Zandi is hoping to prove the pundits wrong. “I’m going to have some family over on Saturday, and we’re going to cook out and hopefully get a chance to celebrate something special,” Zandi said. He could be celebrating his selection on the final day of the NFL draft when Rounds 4 through 7 will be held in Philadelphia, but many mock drafts don’t project Zandi or any other former South Carolina player being picked in the draft. Round 1 will be held Thursday night, and Rounds 2 and 3 will be held Friday. Seven-round mock drafts at FoxSports.com, CBSSports.com and NFL.com all predict that no former South Carolina players will be picked, which would be the first time that has happened since the 2001 season. The Gamecocks were coming off an 8-4 record in coach Lou Holtz’ second season. This year South Carolina is coming off a 6-7 record in Will Muschamp’s first season as head coach. Only four times since 1950 (2001, 1999, 1995 and 1978) has South Carolina seen a draft come and go without an alum getting picked. Zandi said he will watch Thursday night’s first round not out of any expectation but because he “always does.” After that, it’ll probably be some fishing Friday to kill some time and then a hopeful Saturday. “Last week, when about 14, 15 teams start calling you, you’re like, ‘Oh, this is about to get real,’ ” he said. “I’ve proven I am mature enough and motivated enough to continue working harder than I ever had, even when I don’t have a coach or a team I am working with.” Zandi started 24 games for South Carolina, including all 13 last year. The 6-foot-9, 309-pounder came out of Chapin High School as a three-star recruit in 2012. He earned a political science degree while with the team. He ran a 5.15 40-yard dash, vertical jumped 31.5 inches, broad jumped 9 feet, 5 inches and bench pressed 225 pounds 21 times at South Carolina’s pro day. During his phone calls with NFL teams, Zandi has gotten “a good vibe” from the Oakland Raiders, Tennessee Titans and Minnesota Vikings, he said. “Every time I have a conversation with one of their scouts or an offensive line coach or whoever it is, it always seems to be pretty positive and exciting,” he said. If Zandi is not selected in the draft’s seven rounds, he likely will be signed by a team as an undrafted free agent, which would give him a chance to make an NFL roster. “I’m just very thankful and very humbled and very blessed to be in the position that I am in,” Zandi said, “very excited.
  11. The former South Carolina star read a throwback screen perfectly, tipping Connor Cook’s pass in the air and intercepting it.
  12. “The Walking Dead” might beat the NFL in ratings here and there, but it’s rare for another sport to go head-to-head against the NFL and win. Major League Baseball must be feeling pretty good today. Link to read article: http://sports.yahoo.com/news/mlb-gets-a-huge-win-as-it-beats-the-nfl-in-tv-ratings-on-sunday-night-142955322.html
