TORONTO -- The 2013 season is quickly becoming one to forget for Chad Kackert. The Toronto Argonauts running back hurt his left ankle during the teams practice Friday afternoon at Rogers Centre. The extent of the injury wasnt immediately known but certainly leaves questions regarding the third-year players availability Nov. 17 when the Argos host either Hamilton or Montreal in the East Division final. Argos head coach Scott Milanovich didnt sound overly optimistic when discussing the injury. "We dont think it was a minor injury," he said. "From what I saw, it was just kind of a freak deal. "It looked like he was kind of slipping through the line of scrimmage and I dont know that even if anyone touched him. You be as careful as you can but sometimes you cant avoid things." Kackert, the MVP of Torontos Grey Cup victory last November against Calgary, has missed time this season with knee and shoulder injuries as well as a concussion. However, the five-foot-eight, 206-pound Kackert was Torontos leading rusher this season, running for 480 yards on 71 carries (6.8-yard average) with three touchdowns. The former New Hampshire star added 23 catches for 184 yards and a TD. Kackert enjoyed his best season with Toronto last year, rushing for 638 yards on 100 carries with five TDs. He was named the Grey Cup MVP after running for 133 yards on 20 carries and adding 62 yards receiving on eight catches in the Argos 35-22 win over Calgary at Rogers Centre. Kackert re-signed with Toronto in the off-season. If Kackert is unable to play Nov. 17, the Argos would look to either Jerious Norwood or Curtis Steele -- both CFL rookies -- as his replacement. Norwood was Torontos second-leading rusher this year with 342 yards on 58 carries (5.9-yard average) with one touchdown. Steele ran for 187 yards on 39 carries (4.8-yard average) with three TDs this season. "If we were to lose him, I think the guys understand this is football and this type of thing happens," Milanovich said. "They will rally around Jerious and Curtis or whoever is in there. "Fortunately all those guys have played and played in meaningful games. If Chads not able to go well be sorry for him but well move on and try to win for him." Carlo... Lee Astros Jersey .

J.J. Hickson led Denver with 22, and Kenneth Faried added 10 points and 10 rebounds.( - Two pitchers will take the hill on Saturday in Game 2 of the National League Championship Series. One has been nearly unhittable the last two times hes pitched. And the other is Clayton Kershaw. Runs figure to be at a premium tonight, as Michael Wacha and the St. Louis Cardinals try to go up two games to none on the Los Angeles Dodgers in the best-of-seven series at Busch Stadium. Wacha has been the early story of this postseason, as he nearly no-hit the Pittsburgh Pirates in a season-saving win for the Cardinals in Game 4 of the NLDS. The 22-year-old righty took a no-hitter into the eighth in a stellar 7 1/3-inning, nine-strikeout performance to help the Cards force a fifth and deciding game. "Why hes been able to be successful so far is that he has trusted himself," Cards manager Mike Matheny said of Wacha. "Hes trusted the game plan thats put in front of him. Hes trusted his catcher. Hes trusted his stuff. Then it comes down to taking the distractions and minimizing them." Of course, Wacha came within an out of no-hitting the Washington Nationals in his final start in the regular season. "Im definitely looking forward to pitching in front of this home crowd. Its going to be a lot of fun," said Wacha, who has never faced the Dodgers. "Just watching them on TV, its a great ballclub and definitely a dangerous lineup. Im just going to have to go out there and make pitches." Kershaw, meanwhile, is likely headed toward another NL Cy Young Award after a remarkable regular season that saw him go 16-9 and lead the major leagues with a minuscule 1.83 ERA and an NL-best 232 strikeouts. It was the fourth consecutive season that Kershaw tallied 200 or more strikeouts. He also allowed a .195 batting average -- .202 to right-handed hitters and .165 to left-handed hitters. The postseason spotlight hasnt fazed him one bit, as Kershaw went 1-0 against the Atlanta Braves in the NLDS and pitched to a 0.69 ERA in two starts, the last one, of course, came on three days rest and secured the Dodgers series win. "You guys make a big deal about three days rest," he told a room full of reporters before the NLCS opener. "I never made a big deal out of it. (Dodgers manager Don Mattingly) never made a big deal out of it. ... I mean, no offense, but Im just kind of tired of it." Over his last 11 starts, including his two postseason starts, Kershaw is 6-2 with a remarkable 1.46 ERA. Kershaw, thoough, lost both of his starts to the Cardinals this season and pitched to a 4.dddddddddddd15 ERA in doing so. Kershaw will need to be aware of St. Louis Carlos Beltran, who drove in all three runs in the Cardinals thrilling 3-2 win in 13 innings in Game 1. Of the five previous times the Cards won the first game of the NLCS (home or away), they advanced to the World Series three times. "We have had our fair share of extra-inning games, but none more special than that one," second baseman Matt Carpenter said. "Winning Game 1 is huge, especially in that fashion. Whether they want to admit it or not, winning that game in that kind of scenario, thats a tough way to lose a game." Beltran had tied the game with a two-run double in the third inning, but hours later stroked a one-out hit toward the right field corner off Dodgers closer Kenley Jansen to score Daniel Descalso from second base with the winning run. "It was a good team win," shortstop Pete Kozma said, before slightly altering his wording. "A good team Carlos win today." They werent the only heroics for Beltran, who also gunned a runner down at home for an inning-ending double play in the 10th. Perhaps the best postseason hitter of this generation, Beltran now has four game-winning postseason RBI in his career. He also has nine RBI in these playoffs. "Hes basically built up a resume as one of the greatest postseason hitters of all time," Dodgers catcher A.J. Ellis said of Beltran. "We knew that coming in. When you compound that by giving him two 3-1 counts to hit in, he knows what to do." Juan Uribe, who hit the homer Monday that got the NL West-champion Dodgers into the NLCS, had a two-run single in the third inning for LAs only runs in Game 1. Lance Lynn (1-0) threw two innings to get the win and Chris Withrow (0-1) gave up a pinch-hit single to Descalso and walked Matt Carpenter in the 13th. "It feels great coming back to the ballpark and knowing youve got Clayton on the mound," Ellis said. "Were going to do everything we can to earn the split." The Dodgers were 4-3 against the Cardinals this season, including three wins in four games in St. Louis. Not having homefield advantage for this series may not matter, as Los Angeles was tied with Texas for the best road record in the majors in 2013, at 45-36. This series will shift to Los Angeles for Game 3 on Monday. cheap nfl jerseys cheap jerseys cheap jerseys cheap jerseys cheap nfl jerseys wholesale jerseys ' ' '
