MINNEAPOLIS -- After waiting most of the season for defensive tackle Sharrif Floyd to return from a knee injury, the Minnesota Vikings?decided to move on Monday. Nike Shox Clearance .The Vikings placed Floyd on injured reserve, ending the former first-round picks season after he played in only one game this year. Floyd, who has struggled with knee injuries throughout his time in Minnesota, had a Sept. 22 operation on his right knee, but the Vikings didnt think at the time that Floyd would be out all season.Theyd kept the 25-year-old on their active roster until Monday, when they brought Toby Johnson up from their practice squad.We kept hanging around and hanging around, and it was just, we may need the roster spot at some point, said coach Mike Zimmer, who added that Floyd had not had another surgery after the Sept. 22 operation.Now the Vikings will have to decide what kind of a future Floyd has in Minnesota.The 23rd overall pick in the 2013 draft has been a productive player when hes been on the field, but injuries have often been part of Floyds story in Minnesota. After the 2014 season, when Floyd missed two games and was limited in two others because of knee issues, Zimmer said Floyd had to understand its a big mans game. Floyd missed three games a year ago, when he had an operation to remove cartilage from his left knee during the season, and didnt play after the Vikings Sept. 11 season opener in 2016.The Vikings picked up Floyds fifth-year option in May, but assuming his issues arent significant enough to trigger the options guarantee against injury for the 2017 season, the Vikings could cut him without penalty by the start of the league year in March. Floyds option would pay him $6.757 million if the Vikings kept him on the roster next year.Asked whether hed been able to fully assess Floyds work, Zimmer said, Yeah, I think I can assess him. I dont really want to assess him to the media. Ill assess him to [general manager] Rick [Spielman] when we sit down and talk. Nike Shox Shoes Outlet . Anthony Davis had 31 points and 17 rebounds in his seventh straight game with more than 20 points, but that was only enough to keep the Pelicans competitive into the final minutes. Andrew Bogut had 10 points and 15 rebounds for Golden State, which rebounded from a loss a night earlier in Oklahoma City and snapped a two-game skid. Nike Shox Sale . "I dont know that were close," said general manager Alex Anthopoulos. "I just think, right now, the acquisition cost just doesnt work for us right now. I dont know if I can quantify how far off or things like that that they might be but I would say we continue to have dialogue. http://www.shoxoutletshoesstore.com/ . Mats Zuccarello and Derek Stepan scored shootout goals, and backup goalie Cam Talbot earned his second win in two nights as the Rangers shook off a late tying tally and beat the Maple Leafs 2-1 Monday night. Evergreen Australia skipper Cameron Smith claims he feels fitter than ever and has no plans to call time on his glittering representative career just yet.The 33-year-old will make his 49th appearance in the green and gold on Sunday against New Zealand in the Four Nations final - 10 behind Darren Lockyers record.With the Rugby League World Cup in Australia just 11 months away, theres a real possibility Cooper Cronk, Matt Scott, Greg Inglis, wholl all be over 30 when the tournament kicks off, could follow Johnathan Thurston into representative retirement.Smith admits hes unlikely to play again in England after Sundays Four Nations decider against New Zealand at Anfield, but is open-minded about the possibility of playing on after next years showpiece and eclipsing Lockyers milestone.I think Ill just carry on playing, Smith said.I havent really looked to the future and put an end date on my representative career. Its a huge year next year, having a World Cup on home soil.I want to give myself every opportunity to be involved in that and after that tournaments finished theres a whole off season to think about continuing on the following year.Im still contracted to the Stormm in 2018. Nike Shox Nz. Ill probably think about that after next year.I am sort of doing the opposite to other players, I am as fit and as strong as I have ever been.Probably because I look after myself a bit better now. I eat a fair bit less junk food.Physically I feel great and mentally I am enjoying the game as much as at any other time in my career.Despite being on his fourth Kangaroos tour of the UK, Smith said he feels as pumped as he did ahead of his first in 2009 when he scored a late try to earn a 20-all draw with New Zealand in the opening match - the only match on English soil hes not tasted victory in.Im still excited to get a jersey and have my name read out at the start of each week when Mal names the team, he said.Its a bit more difficult now because Ive got three young kids and my wife at home and its hard to leave those guys for six weeks.I love spending time with my family.But as far as playing and being around the team and playing in great stadiums and having victories, its still as enjoyable as when I debuted back in 2006.
