PITTSFORD, N. Nate Thurmond Jersey .Y. -- Buffalo Bills defensive tackle Marcell Dareus acknowledged talk is cheap.And this time the Buffalo Bills defensive tackle said he means it when discussing how hell respond from being suspended for violating the NFLs substance abuse policy for a second consecutive year.I really dont have much to say. Words really dont mean anything now, Dareus said after practice Wednesday. Its all action. And thats what Im going to do. Im going to come back and do the best I can.Dareus was contrite and embarrassed a day after the Bills announced their top-paid player was suspended without pay for the first four games of the season.Dareus said the suspension resulted from missing a drug test. He added he was first notified about the disciplinary action on Saturday, following Buffalos preseason-opening 19-18 loss to Indianapolis.Under NFL rules, missing a test is the same as testing positive.Saying everyone makes dumb decisions, Dareus has since apologized to his teammates, Bills staff and owners, as well as his family and fans.General manager Doug Whaley said hes frustrated and disappointed, but added Dareus has the teams support because hes family and were going to stick by family.That doesnt mean Whaleys not concerned about the actions of a player who a year ago signed a seven-year, $104 million contract extension.Were going to hold him accountable from here on out. And hes going to hold himself accountable, Whaley said Hes got to take a step himself. And its got to be on him.Dareus is a two-time Pro Bowl selection and has been a starter since Buffalo drafted him with the No. 3 pick in 2011.Last year, Dareus was suspended for the season-opener for violation of the substance abuse policy. He had been arrested and charged with possession of a controlled substance and drug paraphernalia after being stopped by Alabama State Police in May 2014.Dareus avoided trial, during which he would have faced felony drug charges, by agreeing to enter an NFL substance abuse program.That wasnt his only run-in with the law.In April 2015, he reached a plea agreement to have misdemeanor charges dropped for crashing his Jaguar into a tree near a busy suburban intersection the previous spring.Coach Rex Ryan takes Dareus at his word that hell do better, while acknowledging some might not believe him.Theres going to be some people that are cynical of him. Theres going to be people that will never give him the benefit of the doubt anymore, Ryan said. But for the majority of people, its more of a show-me thing. And I believe that moving forward this young man will learn from this experience and become a better person for it.The key, Ryan said, is for Dareus to make better choices with his life and understand how his actions impact the team.We all care a great deal for Marcell, Ryan said. We want to see this be a thing thats behind him once and for all, that this never happens again to him.Backup Corbin Bryant is expected to start in place of Dareus. Its a familiar role for Bryant, who last year started nine of Buffalos final 10 games after starter Kyle Williams sustained a season-ending knee injury. Another option is rookie third-round pick Adolphus Washington, who has spent time with the starters in training camp.Dareus suspension represents another blow to a defense that has already been thinned by injury.Rookie first-round pick, outside linebacker Shaq Lawson, had shoulder surgery in May and will miss at least the first month of the season. And second-round pick, inside linebacker Reggie Ragland, will miss the season after tearing a ligament in his left knee 10 days ago.Both were projected to start.Dareus becomes Buffalos second player to earn a four-game suspension to open this season. Last month, the NFL issued backup running back Karlos Williams had a similar suspension for violating the substance abuse policy.---AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and AP NFL Twitter feed: http://twitter.com/AP-NFL ;Authentic Warriors Jerseys . In the lead up - which seemed to begin the moment Mike Geiger blew the whistle in Houston last Thursday night - the Impact rumour mill went into overdrive. The speculation went into meltdown mode, of the golden nugget variety. Draymond Green Jersey . Galatasaray said in a statement on its website Monday that Mancini signed a three-year contract and will be paid 3.5 million euros for the upcoming season, with his salary upped to 4.http://www.cheapwarriorsjerseyschina.com/damian-jones-jersey/ . -- Arizona knocked off some quality opponents, rolled over a few overmatched ones and grinded out victories even when things didnt go so well. Unbeaten welterweight Taras Shelestyuk will square off with Jaime Herrera in the main event on Nov. 4 at the Omega Products International Event Center in Corona, California, organizers announced Thursday.The scheduled 10-round bout will headline a tripleheader on the years final edition of ShoBox: The New Generation (Showtime, 10:30 p.m. ET).My training is going great. I am more powerful, and my speed is better, Shelestyuk said. Herrera is a rough fighter, but it doesnt matter to me because I am looking to step up and get into championship-level fights.?Shelestyuk (14-0, 9 KOs), 30, who is based in Los Angeles, certainly has the amateur pedigree to carry him to that level in the pro ranks. He went 300-15 as an amateur and was a 2012 Ukrainian Olympic bronze medalist. Among his Olympic teammates were gold medalists Vasyl Lomachenko, a former featherweight world titleholder and reigning junior lightweight titlist, and Oleksandr Usyk, who won a cruiserweight world title on Sept. 17. Shelestyuk is aiming to make a name for himself -- like they have. I follow the 2012 Ukrainian Olympic team, and all the guys are doing very well and Im happy for them, Shelestyuk said. But I do not compare my results with anybody else because I have my own career and my own path to a championship belt, and I am enjoying this journey. Herrera (15-3-1, 8 KOs), 27, of Franklin Park, Illinois, has won three fights in a row but against modest opposition, and hes the heavy underdog. Taras is a great fighter and I know Im the underdog, but Ive surprised some fighters before and Im confident and ready to give it my best and win again, Herrera said. Im coming into this fight with the same mentality I had in those fights against the other unbeaten guys. The way I see it, Taras has everything to lose and I fight as I have nothing to lose.?Ive been training very seriously and Im excited to be able to showcase my skills on television. I grew up watching ShoBox. TThere will be more eyes on me and they will see my ability to fight.Warriors Jerseys From China. Getting a win will increase my ranking and open up more doors for my career. In the co-feature, cruiserweight Constantin Bejenaru (11-0, 3 KOs), a 32-year-old southpaw and native of Moldova fighting out of Catskill, New York, will face Albania native Stivens Bujaj (16-0-1, 11 KOs), 26, who lives in Bronx, New York, in a 10-rounder for a regional belt. They were both standout amateurs. Bujaj is a great boxer. We are both undefeated, but there can only be one victor, and I do not plan on losing this fight, Bejenaru said. I entered this fight with the intention of winning. That is what I train to do, that is what I am going to do. Said Bujaj: Im training like this is a world title fight, and Im totally ready to win. I know my opponent is undefeated and I cant overlook him. This is the exposure and opportunity Ive been waiting for. Opening the telecast will be an eight-round lightweight fight between Vitor Jones Freitas (13-0, 7 KOs), 23, of Brazil, against hometown fighter Manuel Mendez (12-1-2, 8 KOs), 26, of Indio, California. Freitas is the nephew of former lightweight and junior lightweight world titleholder Acelino Popo Freitas, perhaps the most popular boxer in Brazilian history. Most of his major fights were aired on Showtime. My uncle had many great fights on Showtime, and on Nov. 4, I am looking to carry on his legacy,?said Vitor Jones Freitas. This will be another step in following in his footsteps to become a world champion. Mendez is trained by Joel Diaz and has sparred regularly with former world titleholders Timothy Bradley Jr. and Ruslan Provodnikov. I am excited about this opportunity to fight on ShoBox, Mendez said. I know with a win, my career will escalate to a new level. I am looking to knock out Vitor. Cheap Jerseys Wholesale Cheap Jerseys Free Shipping Wholesale Authentic Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Jerseys Wholesale Wholesale Jerseys Free Shipping Cheap NFL Jerseys ' ' '
