TEMPE Broncos Game Jerseys , Ariz. (AP) — The first 53-man roster for Steve Wilks as coach of the Arizona Cardinals includes a very young receiving group.

With the exception, of course, of Larry Fitzgerald, who turned 35 over the weekend.

The other four at the position are rookies Christian Kirk and Trent Sherfield, second-year player Chad Williams and fourth-year pro J.J. Nelson.

The team released five-year NFL veteran Brice Butler and Greg Little, who was trying to get back in the NFL after a three-year absence.

“Experience is good when it’s proven, when guys continue to progress and perform,” Wilks said after the team practiced on Monday. “I don’t get caught up — and I told you guys this from day one — I don’t mind playing rookies. That’s my mindset. I’m going to play the guys that deserve the right to play, and most importantly, we kept the guys that I felt deserved the right to be here.”

Butler was signed in the offseason as a free agent after catching 15 passes for 317 yards and three touchdowns in 13 games for Dallas last season.

Kirk, a second-round pick from Texas A&M, is a dynamic player who figures to return punts and could be the team’s No. 2 receiver. Williams, after a rough rookie season, looked good in the preseason. Nelson has been inconsistent, but is a legitimate deep threat and caught 29 passes for 508 yards and two touchdowns for Arizona last season.

The only real surprise out of the group would be Sherfield, an undrafted free agent out of Vanderbilt.

“Trent Sherfield, as I talked about him throughout training camp, continued to progress,” Wilks said. “He showed great things each and every day, made plays in the games, which is so important. I just love his approach and how he comes to work every day. He works hard, he’s smart and dedicated to his craft.”

Sherfield said that, when he heard the news he had made the team, “it wasn’t really shocking but it felt really good.”

He said his confidence stemmed from “the positive feedback I was getting. Just being able to hear those positive things kind of gave me a little bit more motivation to being able to know I could make the roster.”

The youngsters will look to 11-time Pro Bowl selection Fitzgerald, entering his 15th NFL season, for guidance.

“With Larry leading us it’s going to be a fun season,” Sherfield said. “We have a lot of young guys Mark Scheifele Jersey , a lot of names a lot of people probably don’t know about. But in that room we have a lot of guys that are going to work hard … We’ve been pushing each other since the spring.”

Sherfield is one of four undrafted rookies to make the Arizona roster, joining linebacker Dennis Gardeck from Sioux Falls, cornerback Deatrick Nichols from South Florida and linebacker Zeke Turner from Washington.

Wilks kept only one fullback, Derrick Coleman, but brought Elijhaa Penny back on the practice squad. Charles Kanoff, the fourth quarterback throughout camp behind Sam Bradford, Josh Rosen and Mike Glennon, also is on the practice squad. Kanoff is an undrafted free agent from Princeton.

On Sunday, the Cardinals made two moves that will alter the makeup of the backup group along the offensive line, The team released Evan Boehm, a 2016 fourth-round draft pick from Missouri who played center and guard/tackle Will Holden, a fifth-round pick last season out of Vanderbilt.

They signed Jeremy Vujnovich, who started 16 games at right guard for Indianapolis last season, and claimed offensive lineman Blaine Clausell off waivers from Carolina. Clausell, 26, has spent most of his career on practice squads — with Baltimore, New England and Carolina. He appeared in three games for Washington in 2016.

“Every time I stood in front of you guys, you guys kept talking about the backups (on the offensive line),” Wilks deadpanned to reporters. “So, I took your advice, and we tried to look to improve there. We brought in some guys that we felt that had some playing experience, some guys that had started in some games, and I think, again, they fit our mold. They fit our bill.”

Arizona also claimed defensive tackle Garrison Smith off waivers from Atlanta and signed free agent defensive end Zach Moore.

The Cardinals have Tuesday off and return Wednesday to prepare for Sunday’s season opener at home against Washington.

Signs posted around the Olympic venues urge extreme caution. Nine hundred troops stream into the area to help. Worried organizers sequester 1,200 people in their rooms.

Officials are scrambling on the eve of the biggest planned event in South Korea in years – not because of anything related to North Korea and national security, but in an attempt to arrest the spread of norovirus at the Pyeongchang Games.

Local media are fretting over a ”virus panic.” South Koreans Authentic Saquon Barkley Jersey , always quick to air their views online, have poured scorn on the government’s response and preparations. Are the games hygienic? What will people think about South Korea? Could this spread to the athletes?

Norovirus fears may turn out to be much ado about nothing. But with a national reputation on the line, officials are scrambling to contain its spread. No one here wants these games associated more with disease than athletics in the manner that Zika, a mosquito-borne disease linked to a rare birth defect, loomed over the Rio Olympics in 2016.

According to Olympics organizers, the norovirus spread began Sunday when private security workers staying in the Jinbu area of Pyeongchang started complaining of headaches, stomach pain and diarrhea.

NFL

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) – Josh McDaniels has backed out of a deal to become the Indianapolis’ Colts new coach, a decision that shocked the franchise hours after it announced his hiring.

The Colts confirmed McDaniels’ decision in a statement Tuesday night after reports emerged that the Patriots’ offensive coordinator had opted to stay in New England with coach Bill Belichick.

McDaniels had agreed to contract terms with the Colts to replace the fired Chuck Pagano. A news conference had been scheduled for Wednesday at Lucas Oil Stadium.

The Colts said McDaniels informed them Tuesday evening that he would not sign the deal.

”Although we are surprised and disappointed, we will resume our head coaching search immediately and find the right fit to lead our team and organization on and off the field,” the Colts said in the statement.

The Patriots and McDaniels’ agent, Bob LaMont, did not immediately respond to requests for comment.

By spurning the Colts after they waited 22 days to hire him, McDaniels leaves the reeling franchise as the only one without a coach. New England defensive coordinator Matt Patricia left Belichick’s staff a day after the Patriots’ Super Bowl loss to become coach of the Detroit Lions.

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) – New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski can be heard on a 911 call calmly telling a dispatcher that his home was burglarized while he was at the Super Bowl.

Police in Foxborough, Massachusetts, released a portion of the call on Tuesday.

He can be heard telling the dispatcher on Monday: ”This is Rob Gronkowski calling, and while I was gone my whole house got robbed, while on the Super Bowl trip. And I just got back.”

A police report says someone broke a window to get in. In a Broadcastify.com recording of a call between responding officers and dispatch, a dispatcher says ”multiple safes and possible guns” were taken.

The police report redacted all details of what was taken.

The report says Gronkowski lives with two roommates, both of whom reported items stolen.

BASKETBALL

NEW YORK (AP) – Knicks All-Star Kristaps Porzingis has torn the ACL in his left knee.

Porzingis was hurt in the second quarter of New York’s loss to Milwaukee on Tuesday night. He dunked with 8:46 left in the half and landed awkwardly, crashing to the court and holding his left knee. He was eventually helped up and taken to the locker room.

He left the arena for an MRI exam that revealed the injury. Porzingis had scored 10 points before he was hurt. He was selected last month for his first All-Star appearance.

NEW YORK (AP) – The Los Angeles Lakers have been fined $50,000 for violating the NBA’s tampering rule again.

League officials made the announcement Tuesday in response to an interview team president Earvin ”Magic” Johnson did with ESPN.

Johnson was discussing the skills of Milwaukee star Giannis Antetokounmpo and said the Greek native would put the Bucks ”on the map” and bring them an NBA title.

It’s the third time in less than 12 months the Lakers have been disciplined for tampering.

The team was fined $500,000 last summer after the league found general manager Rob Pelinka had been communicating with Paul George’s agent while George was with the Indiana Pacers. Previously, the NBA issued a warning to the team after Johnson winked at George during a television interview.

WNBA

NEW YORK (AP) – The New York Liberty are remaining under the control of New York Knicks owner James Dolan and Madison Square Garden for now.

The WNBA team was put up for sale in November. An MSG executive confirmed to The Associated Press on Tuesday that Dolan’s group has decided to keep the Liberty at this time.

New York will move most of its games out of the Garden this season and into an arena in suburban Westchester County, two people familiar with the situation told the AP. The people spoke on condition of anonymity because no official announcement has been made.

The Liberty were one of the WNBA’s original franchises and have been owned by Dolan and Madison Square Garden since the league was founded in 1996.
