FOXBOROUGH, Mass. Cheap Jordans NZ . -- New England Patriots starting defensive end Rob Ninkovich?will serve a four-game suspension to open the 2016 regular season after a positive test for a banned substance.The NFL said in a statement that Ninkovich is eligible to return from his suspension, which is without pay, on Monday, Oct. 3.Ninkovich told ESPN on Friday that he is devastated and shocked, and said he would never knowingly take an illegal substance.Few things are more important to me than my name and reputation. This might call that into question for some, which has me heartbroken, Ninkovich said. I dont want to cut any corners. I want to do things the right way, with high integrity, and thats what I have always wanted to stand for.Ninkovich, 32, has played in 116 consecutive games (including playoffs) for the Patriots since signing with the team as a free agent on Aug. 2, 2009.Any supplement Ive ever used was bought at a store. I was unaware something I bought had a substance in it that would give me a positive test because it wasnt listed [as an ingredient], Ninkovich told ESPN.One thing I have learned is that if a supplement is not NSF certified, there are no regulations that ensure that what is on the label is 100 percent accurate. That is a hard lesson for me to learn at this stage in my career, but I take responsibility for it. Its a mistake I made and it hurts that I wont be there for my teammates.A team captain in 2015, Ninkovich tore his triceps during a training camp practice with the New Orleans Saints on Aug. 9 and was in jeopardy of missing the start of the season because of the injury.He is valued for his pass-rush ability (47 career sacks, including playoffs) and toughness to set the edge against the run. Coach Bill Belichick has annually lauded Ninkovichs toughness, versatility and intelligence.The Patriots project to start veteran Chris Long, who signed with the Patriots after spending the first eight years of his career with the Rams, in his place. Jabaal Sheard is the other starter, with Shea McClellin (fifth year) and second-year players Trey Flowers, Geneo Grissom and Rufus Johnson rounding out the depth chart.My focus is on getting back to 100 percent and being the best teammate and Patriot I can be upon my return, Ninkovich said. Air Jordans For Sale NZ . -- The Sacramento Kings are set to become the first major professional sports franchise to accept Bitcoin virtual currency for ticket and merchandise purchases. Air Jordan NZ Online .

LONDON -- Arsenal went top of the English Premier League after being held to 0-0 at home by struggling Middlesbrough on Saturday, Arsene Wengers 67th birthday.The Gunners run of six straight league victories came to an end, but it could have been worse if it wasnt for Petr Cechs brilliance in goal.Arsenal could yet be overtaken at the top by Liverpool later Saturday, or Manchester City on Sunday.Wenger was disappointed by his sides lack of creativity, citing the absence of the injured Santi Cazorla as a key factor.We didnt have our usual pace and combination, and not enough sharpness in our movement, Wenger said. We could not win it (but) at least we were attentive enough to not lose it.Middlesbrough manager Aitor Karanka was pleased, having seen his side keep a clean sheet for the first time since August.We should have won the game, but a point was really good, he said. For Petr Cech to be the best player, it says that we did a really good job.Having survived an ominous opening quarter camped on the edge of its own penalty area, Middlesbrough settled and grew in confidence at Emirates Stadium.Adama Traore took advantage of Laurent Koscielnys lapse in concentration to get in behind the Arsenal defence buut was thwarted by a fine Cech save. Air Jordan Store NZ. Alvaro Negredo misfired the rebound.Middlesbrough continued to threaten through Gaston Ramirez, who first struck the woodwork with a near-perfect free kick, then headed an even better opportunity straight at the surprisingly busy Cech.Inspired by Alexis Sanchez, Arsenal emerged with renewed intent after halftime. He fired just wide from a free kick before forcing two fine saves from Victor Valdes.However, the action was far from one way, as Traore came close once more, drawing a full-stretch save from Cech after a pulsating run from inside his own half.Lucas Perez and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain were introduced on either side of the 70th, but neither had the desired effect as an exasperated Wenger patrolled the touchline with his arms outstretched.The visitors, who lost five of their last six league games after a promising start to the season, naturally retreated in the closing stages. It looked like theyd paid the ultimate price in stoppage time, but Mesut Ozil was rightly flagged offside as he flicked in Oxlade-Chamberlains cross. ' ' '
