SANTA CLARA Ahkello Witherspoon Color Rush Jersey , Calif. (AP) — With quarterbacks racking up passing yards at a record pace, San Francisco 49ers cornerback Richard Sherman criticized the league for rules that he says unfairly favor offenses.The four-time Pro Bowler said defenses are at a severe disadvantage given the rules geared toward protecting quarterbacks.“This is what the league wanted though. They wanted record passing numbers,” Sherman said. “You can’t touch (the quarterback). You can’t tackle him. You can’t hit him high. You can’t hit him low. You can’t knock him down to the ground hard.“You can’t hit a receiver high. You can’t hit him low. You can’t push him, you can barely press him. It’s making it really difficult on teams to combat it because every rule in the book is designed to make sure you don’t get them stopped.”There’s no debating the video game-like numbers being posted. Through the first four weeks, the totals for points scored (3,030), touchdowns (344) and touchdown passes (228) are all the highest in NFL history.The frequency of roughing-the-passer penalties has been criticized.“The roughing (penalty) is the biggest one right now,” Sherman said. “But most of the tackling rules have changed. They’re just trying to make it impossible for guys to play defense.”The league’s goal is to reduce the injuries to the starting quarterbacks. This affected the 49ers as Jimmy Garoppolo will miss the rest of the season after tearing the ACL in his knee against Kansas City on Sept. 23. He was hurt scrambling to the sideline.“My suggestion is to put flags on the quarterbacks,” Sherman said jokingly. “If you don’t want them touched https://www.49ersfanshop.com/C.-J.-Beathard-Jersey , don’t want them getting knocked down. These D-ends and D-tackles and linebackers have long arms. They’ll be able to snatch these flags off without even having to touch these guys half the time.”Sherman hopes to get back on the field. After sitting out Sunday against the Los Angeles Chargers because of a strained left calf, the veteran practiced in limited fashion Thursday and wouldn’t rule himself out for Sunday’s home game against Arizona.After Sherman was injured in Week 3 against Kansas City, San Francisco coach Kyle Shanahan said the expectation was that Sherman likely would miss “a couple” games.The 49ers have started Jimmie Ward in Sherman’s place, although Greg Mabin rotated in at cornerback with both Ward and Ahkello Witherspoon against the Chargers. Mabin forced a fumble and earned praise from the coaching staff.He showed “great physicality, competitive toughness, communication skills,” defensive coordinator Robert Saleh said. “He did play very well in the game.”Saleh said Mabin would rotate in at cornerback again. If Sherman can go, that will affect things one way or another.NOTES: Left tackle Joe Staley (knee) did not practice Thursday. But two of the 49ers other starting offensive linemen battling knee injuries, center Weston Richburg and right tackle Mike McGlinchey Matt Breida Jersey , practiced in limited fashion. Running back Matt Breida (shoulder) and receiver Marquise Goodwin (quadriceps, hamstring) also were limited. … The starting safety tandem of Adrian Colbert (hip) and Jaquiski Tartt (shoulder) participated fully as did running back Alfred Morris (knee).

Twenty-four countries will be in France to compete for one of the greatest prizes in all of sports over the next month. The US Women will look to defend their title from four years ago. The first game they play will be on Tuesday against Thailand at 12 p.m. PT. There will be games all throughout the weekend, though.Tonight the Golden State Warriors will look to even the series against the Toronto Raptors in Game 4 of the NBA Finals. Stephen Curry was incredible for the Warriors on Wednesday night, as he scored 47 points on 31 shots. That wasn’t nearly enough as the Warriors were “short-handed” against Toronto. The Raptors were hot from three, and Kawhi Leonard scored 30 points. The offensive explosion was too much for the Warriors. Klay Thompson will be back, but Kevin Durant remains out.How fitting would it be if the Warriors went down 3-1, only to come back?
