Jermaine Jones out for USA vs Panama

USA midfielder Jermaine Jones will not face Panama in the teams' Hexagonal match in Seattle on Tuesday.

The Schalke player was subbed off on Friday in the USA's 2-1 win over Jamaica with what was later diagnosed as a mild concussion, and was considered unlikely to feature for his team on Tuesday.

Jones missed USA training on Sunday night, and then posted the following message on his official Twitter account, @Jermainejunior:

"Training today on bike!! Tuesday I'm out for the game against panama  !!!"

With Jones out, the USA could turn to Geoff Cameron to fill the center midfield slot. The Stoke utility man came on for Jones in the Jamaica match. Other options include Joe Corona, Sacha Kljestan and Stuart Holden.

The USA faces Panama on Tuesday at CenturyLink Field, before travelling to Salt Lake City to face Honduras on June 18.

  • Jurgen Klopp on Liverpool title talk: “I don’t care”

    Jurgen Klopp isn’t having any of your title talk. After Liverpool beat West Bromwich Albion 2-1 on Saturday at Anfield and Arsenal, Tottenham, Manchester City and Manchester United all dropped points this weekend, plenty of people are talking up Liverpool’s chances of winning the Premier League title this season. With nine games of the season gone, Liverpool sit joint-top with Arsenal and Man City on 20 points with Chelsea and Tottenham just behind them on 19 points. It is tight at the top but whatever people are saying, Klop isn’t bothered. “I don’t care. It is normal in football that when you are in a good position people start talking a little more positive. I don’t recognize so much what

  • Sainz stars with charge to P6 at COTA, enjoys late battle with childhood hero Alonso

    Carlos Sainz Jr. produced one of the stand-out displays in Sunday’s United States Grand Prix in Austin, Texas to finish sixth, matching his best result of the 2016 Formula 1 season so far. Sainz qualified 10th for Toro Rosso on Saturday at the Circuit of The Americas, but rose up to P8 in the early stages after Nico Hulkenberg and Valtteri Bottas dropped back due to contact. Sainz managed to jump Felipe Massa at the second round of pit stops to run seventh before Max Verstappen and Kimi Raikkonen retired, handing the Spaniard fifth. After seeing off pressure from Massa, Sainz went wheel-to-wheel with his childhood racing hero, Fernando Alonso, in the final two laps, but was unable to keep the

  • Long: Sunday drive right move for three of JGR cars

    It worked just as Joe Gibbs Racing planned. With three JGR cars not needing a top-20 finish to clinch a spot in the Round of 8, Carl Edwards, Matt Kenseth and Kyle Busch fell to the back Sunday before the green flag at Talladega Superspeedway and stayed there until the checkered flag. “The easiest thing in the world is to just say, ‘Hell with it, we’re going to go race, we’re going to do everything we can and not worry about it,’ but that’s foolish,’’ Edwards said after finishing 29th, sandwiched between Kenseth (28th) and Busch (30th). Kenseth, Edwards and Busch joined teammate Denny Hamlin, who had to race his way into a transfer spot with a third-place finish, as among the eight drivers left competing for the Sprint Cup title.

  • MLS Power Rankings: Going to the playoffs edition

    As we prepare for the 2016 MLS Cup Playoffs, which kick off Wednesday night, we take one last shot at MLS power rankings, featuring only the 12 times still fighting in the postseason. Which are the sides most likely to represent the East and the West in MLS Cup 2016? Let’s talk it out… Eastern Conference 1. New York Red Bulls — Bradley Wright-Phillips scored 24 goals this season, including 14 in RBNY’s last 12 games. Sacha Kljestan finished the season with 19 assists, but should have had 20. Not to bury the lead here, but they haven’t lost a game since July 3 (9 wins, 6 draws). That’s an absurd run capped off with four straight wins to finish the regular season. Throw in the fact they’ll host

  • Michigan coach Jim Harbaugh says replay decision was the ‘worst call he’s ever seen’

    Jim Harbaugh has been known for using a bit of hyperbole from time to time but it sounds as though he was really, really, really upset at a call in the final few minutes of No. 2 Michigan’s 41-8 win over Illinois on Saturday. Wolverines quarterback John O’Korn had completed a third-and-nine pass to Drake Harris that officials had marked short of the first down by nearly two yards. Harbaugh quickly challenged the spot but Big Ten replay officials upheld the call to force a fourth down decision that was a little longer than it should have been according to the coach. “I’ve never seen a worse call in the game of football,” Harbaugh said at his Monday press conference. “My understanding of the rules

  • Video: Dan Girardi’s first goal in nearly a year lifts Rangers to victory

    An offensive defenseman, Dan Girardi is not. His last goal prior to this weekend? Nov. 12, 2015. It’s been a while. Almost an entire year now. But in his return to the New York Rangers lineup on Sunday, the 32-year-old Girardi was able to bust his scoring slump on a slap shot from the blue line that beat Arizona Coyotes goalie Louis Domingue. The Rangers eventually won by a final score of 3-2, with Girardi’s goal counting as the winner. He scored only twice last season, and hasn’t scored more than five goals in a single season since 2009-10.

  • Mets plan to slow-play market for Yoenis Cespedes

    The Mets want to bring back Yoenis Cespedes, "but they probably wouldn't chase him if he got an enormous long-term deal elsewhere," given his age and the streaky nature of his production, according to weekend report from's Buster Olney. According to multiple reports, Cespedes is expected to opt out of his three-year contract and become a free agent. There is mutual interest in having him return to the Mets. However, "There is no urgency," a source told Olney, who says the Mets are open to effectively updating his current deal with another opt-out clause. Cespedes has until three days after the end of the World Series to decide whether to opt out of his current contract with the Mets,'s

Tim MacMahon of ESPN: Houston Rockets management repeatedly pushed for Clint Capela to get more playing time at the expense of Dwight Howard last season, sources told ESPN, adding to the disharmony that played a prominent role in the team’s disappointing 2015-16 campaign.

  • Comeback Canucks? Not against the Ducks

    The Vancouver Canucks have made a habit of third-period comebacks early this season. Playing with the lead, though? Not so much. Despite their early penchant for late-game magic — certainly not a sustainable method of winning in the long-term — the Canucks were unable to score a come-from-behind win against the Anaheim Ducks on Sunday. Instead, they lost 4-2, as Nick Ritchie and Corey Perry scored late in the third period to nullify any chance of a Vancouver comeback. Henrik Sedin had gotten the Canucks back into a tied game early in the final period, before the Ducks killed off a Vancouver power play and then surged ahead for good. It’s Vancouver’s first regulation loss of the season. In six

  • Four bold moves Bills should make at NFL trade deadline

    The NFL trade deadline is on Nov. 1 and with the Buffalo Bills currently holding a 4-3 record on the 2016 season, it’s quite possible that general manager Doug Whaley could be looking to strike a deal. Since being promoted to general manager shortly after the 2013 NFL draft, Whaley hasn’t been hesitant to work the phones and make trades. In just over three years, Whaley has made 11 trades that allowed the team to acquire players like outside linebacker Jerry Hughes and running back LeSean McCoy, while not being shy to send away draft picks if he feels that he can improve the team. With that said, here are some bold trades that Whaley should make with the NFL trade deadline looming. Whaley traded

  • Bob Stoops defends brother Mike following Oklahoma defense’s performance at Texas Tech

    Oklahoma’s defense has not had the best of weeks. The Sooners gave up 59 points on Saturday to Texas Tech and allowed quarterback Patrick Mahomes to set an FBS record for total offense as he did just about whatever he wanted in the passing game. While the team ultimately won the game, giving up that many points and yards has naturally led to some questions about Oklahoma’s defensive coordinator. Head coach Bob Stoops isn’t having any of that however, and it’s not just because the coordinator in question is his brother Mike Stoops. “It’s all of us, too. It isn’t just my brother and I. It’s also coach [Kerry] Cooks, coach [Calvin] Thibodeaux, coach [Tim] Kish, everybody in there,” Stoops said Monday,

  • Giants still in last place in division despite win over Rams, 4-3 record

    The New York Giants may have turned their season around the past two weeks with two hard-fought victories, but they are still on the bottom looking up in the suddenly competitive NFC East. The frontrunning Dallas Cowboys (5-1) remained alone in first place after a bye week; the Philadelphia Eagles stunned the previously-undefeated Minnesota Vikings, 21-10, at home to improve to 4-2 and move to second place; and the Washington Redskins fell in the final seconds to the Lions in Detroit, 20-17, to fall to 4-3 on the year. With a little over half the season remaining, only a few division games have been played. The Eagles, who play Dallas next week, have only played one game in the division thus far.
