first_img Facebook Twitter Google+ Former Syracuse football player Naesean Howard will undergo a series of medical tests over the next few weeks to discover if he has suffered from chronic traumatic encephalopathy (C.T.E.), the degenerative brain disease linked to repeated head hits.Ralph Cognetti, Howard’s attorney, said Friday morning during a pre-trial hearing regarding Howard’s alleged stabbing that if there’s a link between his concussion history and decision-making, then the intent element of his alleged crime could be negated. In that case, “then we’ve got a tool to use either at trial or in negotiations that will perhaps get a lesser charge,” Cognetti said.Howard, 20, appeared before Judge Anthony Aloi in Syracuse City Court on Friday morning, about two months before his Feb. 21, 2017 trial. The former Syracuse defensive back was dismissed from the football team after his freshman season in 2014. He was charged with first-degree assault after allegedly stabbing Chauncey Scissum and Corey Winfield at a South Campus party in April. Winfield left the program in November.Howard was indicted in May on first-degree assault charges, as well as charges of second-degree assault and fourth-degree criminal possession of a weapon. The first-degree assault charge alleges Howard intended to cause “serious physical injury” and is punishable of up to 25 years in prison. Howard is in custody and bail will not be set.MORE COVERAGE:AdvertisementThis is placeholder textTrial date set for ex-Syracuse football player accused of stabbing two former teammatesCourt documents: Howard stabbed SU football players multiple timesWitness details alleged stabbing, South Campus party Published on December 16, 2016 at 11:18 am Contact Matthew: [email protected] | @MatthewGut21center_img The West Genesee High School graduate was initially charged with two counts of second-degree assault.Howard will be medically evaluated next Friday, Cognetti said. He will then undergo a series of tests at State University of New York Upstate Medical Center. The results of the tests will be sent to a doctor at the University of Pennsylvania for review. Cognetti said he doesn’t know many concussions Howard may have suffered, but that “It’s a hell of a lot more than one.”“My client may have suffered from severe chronic traumatic encephalopathy (C.T.E.) — concussions — since his start of playing football in Pop Warner,” Cognetti said. “If that’s the case, that would negate that intent element … Then this (case) doesn’t have all the elements of a crime.”He added: “From our analysis, he’s suffered concussions on multiple occasions going way back to pop warner. That’s our belief.”Another pre-trial hearing has been scheduled for Jan. 17 at 9 a.m.“Maybe at that time we’ll have test results,” Aloi said, and some “other discussions can be held.” Commentslast_img read more


first_imgSyracuse’s longest losing skid of the season reached three games after the Orange fell to Virginia, 68-61, in John Paul Jones Arena on Tuesday night. SU trailed by just three points at halftime, but despite some late steals thanks to a full-court press, couldn’t match UVA’s barrage of 3-pointers in the second half.Here are three takeaways from SU’s third-straight loss:Deep defenseDefensive lapses plagued the Orange late in its defeat to Wake Forest last week. Late in the shot clock, Matthew Moyer said, SU would sit back for a fraction of a second and give the Demon Deacons the space necessary to sink a shot from deep. That same tendency seemed to hurt SU again Tuesday night, especially in the second half.The Cavaliers sunk just three 3-pointers in the first half, all from Kyle Guy, who finished with 22 points to lead all scorers. But then UVA let loose after the break, connecting on 6 of 15 attempts beyond the arch. They didn’t make a two-point attempt until the 6:18 mark in the half. And with their defense limiting SU to its fourth-lowest point total of the year, it didn’t have to.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textRough RoadIt’s well-documented how much a road win would mean for SU in the ACC. A year ago, the Orange found itself on the outside of the bubble after finishing the season with two wins away from the Carrier Dome. Its inability to boost its reputation on the road was likely the team’s fatal flaw.So letting a game within reach slip away in the second half stings. When it comes against the No. 3 team in the country that many consider to be the ACC’s best, it burns a little deeper than usual. Frank Howard was clear after last weekend’s loss to Notre Dame in saying that SU needed to change things to turn its season around. Beating UVA would have been the most deliberate way to do just that.Syracuse trailed by just two possessions with less than four minutes left. It pressed in the game’s final few minutes and forced the Cavaliers into some turnovers. It didn’t look like one of the ACC’s bottom-tier teams against one of the nation’s best teams. It had a chance.But that means very little without a win.Tale of two HowardsA perfect world for SU would involve Tyus Battle, its best player, scoring 25 points a night and leading his team through the rigors of the ACC. But Battle has, at times, struggled to score consistently of late, being slowed by opposing teams keying their defensive schemes to stop him. Frank Howard has filled the void.Howard has scored fewer than 17 points just twice since a five-point effort against Connecticut on Dec. 5. On Wednesday, he led SU with 11 points at halftime, connecting on three of four three-point attempts before the break. Howard’s ability to create his own shot — he hoisted nine of SU’s 26 first-half field goals — was the primary factor in SU’s ability to stick around despite UVA’s smothering defense and trail by just three points at halftime.Then Howard disappeared. He did not make a field goal after halftime until the game’s final minute, when SU trailed by double-digits. He finished with 18 points and seven turnovers. He is the piece that can make SU go, and when he became a non-factor in the second half, SU headed straight for a loss.

first_imgUPDATE: Smith spoke with NFL Media’s Jim Trotter about the coin toss decision.I asked Geno Smith what he called during the coin toss for overtime. His answer … pic.twitter.com/Idz3KRNU1z— Jim Trotter (@JimTrotter_NFL) November 12, 2019Trotter says Smith confirmed to him that he called “heads.” He also explained his reasoning for calling “heads” which doesn’t really make sense, but we’ll let him roll with it. According to Trotter, Smith told him he called “heads” because Russell Wilson called “tails” earlier in the game.This is a fine reason, but then Smith went on to say it involved math, which, no it doesn’t. Either way, Smith confirmed he said “heads.” Geno Smith calls tails during OT coin flipRef says he called HeadsSeahawks given ballLadies and Gentleman, NFL officiating… 🤦‍♂️ pic.twitter.com/Y1WRk4rKfx— NFL Memes (@NFL_Memes) November 12, 2019MORE: 49ers kicker Chase McLaughlin almost hit someone in the tunnel with shanked kickIt’s similar to the Yanny or Laurel debate that became popular in 2018. Essentially, whichever word you’re trying to hear, you will hear. So if you watch that video expecting to hear “tails” then you’ll hear what appears to be Smith saying “tails.”Also, if Smith did say “tails” he wouldn’t correct the official because “heads” ended up giving Seattle the ball. So it’s an important distinction as to what he said. But a high quality version of the coin flip makes it clear Smith is saying “heads.”Take a listen.Even if this video doesn’t convince you, the actions of the players should.The official says “your call is heads” and there was enough time for Smith to stop him and say “no I said tails,” if he wanted. But Smith doesn’t stop him. On the other side, Richard Sherman doesn’t react at all. If Smith said “tails,” then Sherman would have certainly said something.Take a look at an actual coin flip snub where Jerome Bettis clearly says “tails” but the official says “heads is the call.” Bettis and other Steelers players corrected the official right away before they knew the result of the coin flip.Smith reacted to the coin flip debate on social media, tweeting: “Basically how the media works now a days.. clout chasing ruined the world!”And as for the success of the coin flip, Seahawks coach Pete Carroll discussed that on his radio show appearance on 710 ESPN.”He’s all time,” Carroll said about Smith’s coin toss decisions. “They were chanting his name when he was walking out there. ‘Geno! Geno!’ It was awesome.”All of this is a long-winded way of saying Geno Smith called heads. Geno Smith is involved in a controversy over whether he said “heads” or “tails” during the overtime coin flip in the Seahawks’ win over the 49ers on “Monday Night Football.”But the “controversy” only exists because there’s a poorly recorded video of the call in question. A tweet from an NFL meme account has more than 19,000 likes suggesting Smith says “tails.” And if you listen to the audio, it does kind of sound like he says “tails.”last_img read more
