SAN DIEGO -- Chargers wide receiver Travis Benjamin was reprimanded during Mondays practice -- thats a positive. Mens Nike Shox Clearance .I kind of had a couple tempo violations where I was going faster than the other guys and they told me to slow down, Benjamin said. I was just feeling happy, and knowing that I could pick it up and run faster.Benjamin was eager to display his speed in the teams first workout after its bye. In a light session on a damp field, Benjamin was raring to show that his ailing knee is fine.It felt good to be back out there, said Benjamin, who has missed two games. Well see how it goes this week.Benjamin was among the Chargers returning to practice after being injured leading up last weeks bye. Also working and looking as if theyll play on Sunday at Houston were strong safety Jahleel Addae (clavicle) and inside linebacker Denzel Perryman (hamstring).Its great to get Denzel back on the field, coach Mike McCoy said. We all know what type of player he is, with his knowledge of the system and the play-making ability that he has. So anytime you can get any player back it is always a bonus for our team.Especially if Perryman, the teams top run-stopper, can stay fit for the next six games. In four of those contests, the opposition averages at least 4 yards per carry. Perryman hasnt played since Oct. 30.Addae, another physical player, could deliver some brawn to a run defense which is ranked in the top 10. Although its a unit which will no longer feature nose tackle Brandon Mebane, who suffered a season-ending biceps injury in the loss to Miami on Nov. 13.The way (Addae) plays the game, his passion, it doesnt matter if its during practice today or Sunday at kickoff, McCoy said. You love everything about him. It was great to see him out there at practice today.Dwight Lowery, the Chargers free safety signed in the offseason, agreed.He has the most experience out of everybody in the room, Lowery said. So to bring his energy, passion, physicality, passion and also his knowledge of the defense is going to help us tremendously I believe. It will be a lift to have him out there.Two key players didnt return. Cornerback Brandon Flowers (concussion) and inside linebacker Jatavis Brown (knee) were unable to go.It appears the last-place Chargers (4-6) wont be going to the playoffs for the sixth time in seven seasons. But quarterback Philip Rivers gathered his teammates after practice and stressed for them to keep fighting.Phil told us that everyone wishes we could go back in time and change one little thing we did in the losses that we had, rookie defensive end Joey Bosa said. But obviously we cant do that. Looking forward we have six games left and that is really all we can handle. That is what we are focused on. Our goal is to go 6-0.---For more NFL coverage: http://www.pro32.ap.org and http://www.twitter.com/AP-NFL Cheap Nike Shox Sale . It just didnt show when he hit the ice. Berra made 42 saves and Kris Russell scored at 1:32 of overtime, lifting the Calgary Flames to a 3-2 victory over the Chicago Blackhawks on Sunday night. Nike Shox Shoes . Dallas hasnt ruled out the star quarterback for Sunday nights game against Philadelphia, but all signs point to Romos back injury pushing Kyle Orton into the starting role after two years of limited play as the backup. Surely Ortons name isnt the first that comes to mind for fans wanting a change after years of damaging interceptions, fumbles or, most infamously, the field goal flub when Romo dropped the snap on a kick that could have won his first playoff game in 2006. http://www.shoxnikesalecheap.com/ . -- Cam Newton pranced into the end zone, placed his hands over his chest and did his familiar Superman pose. NEW YORK -- Buck Showalter was standing in his office at Yankee Stadium when Baltimore reliever Tommy Hunter popped in and grabbed the managers arm, nudging him toward the thumping party in the clubhouse across the hall.And when Showalter emerged through the protective plastic sheets hanging above the entryway, his players roared and doused him in bubbly.Thanks to a victory in their regular-season finale, the power-hitting Orioles are on to the playoffs.Matt Wieters homered from both sides of the plate, Kevin Gausman gave Baltimore a clutch pitching performance and Baltimore snagged an AL wild card by beating the New York Yankees 5-2 Sunday.It never really got away from us, Showalter said. You go through periods when youre like, youve got a chance to win a division, youve got a chance to be a wild card, then youve got a chance to not even be in it. And you dont overcome that without having a real strong mentality.Baltimore will play Tuesday night at AL East rival Toronto for a chance to face AL West champion Texas in a best-of-five Division Series.All we asked for is an opportunity, and right now, we have an opportunity. So, lets celebrate and enjoy this and get back to work, outfielder Adam Jones said.Zach Britton got five outs and finished perfect in 48 save chances this year with a 0.54 ERA. Wieters had four RBIs and Gausman (9-12) was charged with two runs in 7 1/3 innings as the Orioles -- who led the majors by a wide margin with 253 home runs -- closed with their seventh victory in nine games to reach the postseason for the third time in five years.Theyre looking for their first World Series championship since 1983.You just roll the dice and see if you can knock on the door and break through this time, said Dan Duquette, executive vice president of baseball operations.Baltimore (89-73) barely celebrated on the field after Britton struck out Brett Gardner to end it. Several players hugged each other behind the mound, but others simply walked out of the dugout and formed the customary handshake line.Back in their raucous clubhouse, however, the Orioles let loose. They sprayed beer and champagne, joining the AL East champion Red Sox as opponents who celebrated in the visitors clubhouse at Yankee Stadium within the past five days.I think its even more fun to do it here, Gausman said. They beat us up a lot over the years, way past before my time, so its good to celebrate here.In his final game before retiring, New York slugger Mark Teixeira went 0 for 3 and showed off his Gold Glove form with a couple of slick plays at first base. Honored during a 12-minute ceremony and feted with several gifts before the game, he was removed with one out in the top of the seventh innning so he could soak up the cheers while he walked off the field, fully composed as he hugged his teammates one at a time. Shox Outlet. Mentally and emotionally, I kind of prepared for it, Teixeira said. It wasnt as weird as I thought it would be.Baltimore squandered a three-run lead Saturday in a 7-3 loss to the Yankees that made its playoff prospects more complicated. But the Orioles got help that night when Detroit and Seattle were beaten, so they knew when they arrived at Yankee Stadium on Sunday that all they needed was a win to get in.When I woke up, I was ready to go, Gausman said. I wanted the game to start at 12 oclock. I was pacing back and forth in here a long time and I wanted the ball today.Jonathan Schoop, who started every game this season, reached on a pop-fly double leading off the third and put Baltimore ahead when he scored on J.J. Hardys sacrifice fly.In the fourth, Wieters was batting left-handed when he hit a two-run homer into the second deck in right field on a 3-0 pitch from Luis Cessa (4-4). That came one batter after Mark Trumbo reached on an infield single when Teixeira failed to scoop third baseman Ronald Torreyes short-hop throw.Manny Machado singled in the sixth and Wieters, batting right-handed, greeted lefty reliever Tommy Layne with another two-run drive just inside the left-field foul pole.Brian McCann went deep for the fourth-place Yankees (84-78), reaching 20 homers for the ninth consecutive season and 10th time overall.Didi Gregorius had an RBI single off Britton with two outs in the eighth before first baseman Chris Davis grabbed Aaron Hicks sharp grounder with two on to end the inning.LOOKING AHEADThe Orioles went 9-10 against the Blue Jays (89-73) this season. They were 4-5 in Toronto, but took two of three crucial games there just last week. We won five straight series on the road at the end of the year. That is a very, very hard thing to do, Jones said.DOUBLE TROUBLEWieters became the first Orioles player to homer from both sides since Hall of Fame second baseman Roberto Alomar against Cleveland on July 25, 1996. ... Wieters has seven career multihomer games, three this season.YANKEE DOODLE DANDYGausman was 3-1 with a 1.10 ERA in six starts against the Yankees this year.LET THE RECORD SHOWTeixeira finished with the same amount of hits as games played (1,862). He batted .268 with 409 home runs and 1,298 RBIs.UP NEXTOrioles: RHP Chris Tillman (16-6, 3.77 ERA) figures to start the wild-card game, but Showalter did not announce his plans.Yankees: Play their season opener next year April 2 at Tampa Bay.
