The latest on the health of Tua Tagovailoa | More injury updates from around the NFL | Albert Pujols hits homer #703.


Protect and that requires an eye for detail because when safety and well-being on the line. If the details save a lot even when no one else is watching everything Ranger gets and are here for you and all the ones who get it done with a wide range of safety products and solutions is board certified safety consultants in here to answer your question, call click, just not by Granger one. I hope you survived your mind. I felt better when I fail like that. I for the first time in a long time slept eight hours and only woke up once you know anything about me that is nearly a miracle. But it also speaks to how completely weary I following that we get in the mood Sunday into the Monday so yeah I was a good day sleeping and then go right into the rat race again.

That's how Mondays are try to catch up. Especially this time of the year so I hope that you are buckled up, because October is she just beginning. It's after hours with Amy Lawrence on CBS sports radio were live from the rocket mortgage Studios you need to know what it takes for home to fit your budget and your family. Rocket can. You can find me on Twitter a lot radio. Again, thank you for all your football tweets. Thank you for all the new follows. It's good to connect with some of you are telling me you haven't heard the show ever before, or hearing it for the first time in a long time, every single day we get questions about whether or not there's a podcast. Everything will day course. I guess if you need the podcast that means are not necessarily listening to the show every single night when I tell you that there is a podcast and I tell you the address after hours Amy but we do post the link to our week Lee not weekday weekday morning podcast. As soon as were off the show every like it's seriously like clockwork, and the only an actor there's watchdogs out there that tell me when producer Jay messes up or when the equipment there's a malfunction it's not necessarily operator error. Sometimes it is in fact the equipment that we use from 1984. So if it at least.

The Seattle Mariners have made the playoffs since then and there that their playoff drought was not as old as our equipment is here in studio anyway so whenever there's an hour missing or a segment missing. We get people who notify us. But if you're looking for the podcast.

You can't necessarily listen to all four hours of the show live fine. I'll except that I get it you're not paid to be here. Just kidding. I'm not opening up that ghetto worms were paid to be here. You may not be paid to be here, but were happy to keep you company. So yeah, you can check out the podcast. All of our interviews. Our guests are podcast separately. We got some good gas lined up for this week on into actually later this month. I don't know if I speak it into existence. Producer Jay gets really mad at me when I speak things into existence because that he believes it's in Jake's is that me I shouldn't be telling people about the interview that were working on is is that not something that you you really get to be a secret until we have it locked in.

Notably gold fathers more was just dreams. I think they're all different letter to you, but I think I think your word okay so right now we believe we don't have the date set yet, but were were at least in it have received a positive affirmative response in our quest to get Andrew Whitworth on the show so it's been a little bit of all of the search and rescue operation actually trying to figure out how to get to a woman that who do we contact them with. I've had to go through my own friends and to try to pull some strings and so it's it's a little bit of a winding path, but we have in fact gotten in touch with his people as he got people and we should have people and we think will have something later on this month all so were working on Kurt Warner again by we I mean may actually haven't even wrote producer Jade this when I was given to myself based on again some other contacts that I have so hopefully that will work out. Both of those actually would be really fun to have before the end of well October, but even on its November will take either one of them whenever they are available, but we got some other really cool gas exits and first time guests that will be welcoming to the show in the next few weeks. Always try to keep things fresh and and not only offer different voices and different perspectives, but certainly to use our show is a chance to connect with various fan bases and former athletes current athletes and listeners all over the country all about connections peeps so you can find us on Twitter or Facebook.

Again, that's where you can get the link to the podcast every weekday morning and their phone number 85521242278552124 CBS I you probably noticed if you paid any attention to football this weekend.

That pretty much every single game every single pregame show every single show that featured any type of football analysis on any network or any radio outlet that you listen to probably the majority of the podcast as well. There only 8400 22,000 podcast 8000 98,000 that was a weird number. I made up a number that typically make up words but I start to make up numbers.

My mom got me really upset me so forgive me.

It's a Monday night, and weird things come out of my mouth on a Monday night after football weekend.

We just strike that for the record, we dump that delegate never meant to say. Of course, but what I said was 8400 22,009 I like to play that back just to see exactly what is so also the winter buried in the archives because if someone gets a hold of that and takes it out of context, as in Amy's tired, because it's post football weekend there is going make fun of me as soon as I see Jay's face after listening back to it all know exactly how dumb it sounded caught it but it just keep talking you not realize I said something really stupid. I like using numbers like the two of them just like trying to throw something just like all 473 like some 500,400 22,000 is not a number for all you know it's a compound number.

It was a thousand times.

422 to go back and listen to right this second. And there only 8400 22,000 podcast. All right, what do you wait for you to to make a face and let me know that you heard it.that was it and all of its glory. I mean I wish even for one hour that you could listen to radio host that's perfect but that's not what you get your even remotely close is virtually no Monday not only 8000 like seven times that I replayed in my head I already feel like an idiot know more about all great so that was my suggestion. I really you should use that drop somewhere were drawn to describe a really big number. At some point okay well you just wait until I find something stupid that you said on the air like when you rule in our surprises. But think about Jay whenever we have YouTube videos coming up and I'm try to tease it. I can't let them talk about on the air because he will find a way to give it away to ruin it. But we do have a brand-new plan. We have a bully, a brand-new plan that actually working to record a new video for YouTube. I know it's been a while.

I actually think it's been since August. Maybe that we've had a new video. Just try to get up to speed with football and all the production that had to be done for football. We've counted we've had put on the back burner for a bit but never thought this would happen. I was the one bringing it up in our planning call this afternoon. Okay I feel like we need to get back to her YouTube channel. So I guess I can't complain anymore about being on camera to divide and bring it up. It would just die on the vine. But you not speaking all you not speaking about this particular video, you can tell people the main topic you not to tell people that it's about football football I've already got my outfit picked out you always know that is what guide you pick out bids before I do know I do that anyway. Touché, it's after hours with Amy Lori zero CBS sports radio.

So what I was saying before I made up a number created a broken number is that if you listen to any of the 8,422,000 podcast devoted to sports over the weekend if I just said that the first place we would've gone this long tangent in his walker that would I do like the woods pretty colors this time of the year. We what interests you wouldn't have been able to mess, what was the number one topic on the football field and that is two and the ripple effects throughout the rest of the league about how teams should held concussions and how they should protect players and the fact that every single time someone suffered as a member blow to the head or a hard tackle where the head was impacted they were walked off the field promptly to the locker room to go through concussion protocol we saw with Tyrone Taylor asked that was a really nasty collision.

We saw with Brian Hoyer he mean the last quarter for the New England Patriots in Green Bay, but it was not only talked about over and over again with resounding conviction by pretty much everybody who was bringing it up that the Dolphins failed to are that the NFL has to have stricter protocols of the current protocols not working, but then you saw it playing out on the field with teams themselves, who are now at least for now. I don't know how long this continues but at least for now are being very careful with our athletes who may in some way have suffered a hit to the head or the neck and are then required to go through concussion protocols. As for two. The good news is, as we had found out last week. He was jovial, he was able to fly home on the plane with his teammates, which is a big lift to the Dolphins as a whole, but he is not currently on the football field. This is something it's too early to give a definite timeline I can comfortably say that it will be out for this game suggests anything beyond that were again were just focused on making sure he's optimal health and when crossing the bridge so it's a little early for defendant time on speed on Semite McDaniels saying that we don't have a timeline. He is in concussion protocol, but for now at the most, were sure that he will not beyond the field for week five against the New York Jets ends. I am not surprised at all. I've actually seen people that have predicted, for whatever that's worth. Using air quotations that we won't see to a back on the field for months, which is seems dramatic and I do appreciate that might be. Dale said hey if he's cleared like he was before their last game against the Bengals on Thursday night if he is cleared my essay.

You can't be on the field. He passed all the tests he went through concussion protocols daily. Following that game was the Bengals Thursday not know intimate of the initial game was the bills right yeah that was the Matt Milano who pushed him over and he fell back, and seemingly hit his head on the grass behind him, but he had said it was his back and that his back was what caused them to be wobbly.

You don't have to believe that. I guess you can call to a liar if you wish. He doesn't strike me as I kind of a guy, but he not only passed concussion protocols initially that the team allowed them back in the game on that Sunday but then he went through concussion protocols every single day like they were ignoring his head even as he was listed day to day because of his back. I will say this, we know that there are documented cases of concussion symptoms not manifesting until days later. You may not feel them. They may not be measurable. Right away, but there can be a concussion that doesn't reveal itself until later though I'm not sure if the NFL of the NFL PA is going to start to argue for that. Maybe at some point as we move forward in this discussion and they try to figure out how to protect players even more.

What if they have a mandatory. We have to set out if you're in concussion protocol. What if they make you sit out for two days or three days or not. I don't know if it would force you to miss a week it since I can imagine that right now. Those are the types of conversations that are going on behind closed doors is that maybe there should be a mandatory. Where a player is forced to sit are forced to stay off the field just in case.

These symptoms manifest themselves a couple days down the road matter know all the sites behind it.

I just know. Again, there are documented cases where there are no measurable impact of the concussion and the protocol wouldn't flag a concussion until a couple of days later and after hours with Amy Lawrence here on CBS sports radio and Mike McDaniel telling us there is no definitive timeline for two or to return right now is in the building. He's a he's had a couple good days. But he's he's just trying to go through so proper procedure and protocol. So he's filling hundred percent. I notice he's going to be diligent with it and if there's obviously things are giving him issues in terms of light in most things and we will shut that down, so they're still testing him daily. There still running him through the protocols and there are baselines that every player has set during the preseason, so they they give you these neurology tests and there are baselines that are then compared to whatever testing you might need during the season. If you get a hit to the head so he's getting compared to his own baselines when he clearly did not have a concussion going back before the season started, and now is being evaluated on a daily basis and their course asking him and you would expect these players to be honest I hope considering what we know about head injuries and the lasting impacts specially the compound problems. If you suffer multiple concussions in a short term or short time span and so whether it's sensitivity to light or noise. These are things that the player would have to report himself, but he was evaluated for a concussion. After that the situation with the bills and the team announced that he cleared through all of his protocols in he was tested daily leading up to Thursday's game and obviously we saw what happened Thursday against the Bengals where his his hand seized up there and it was a hard head and just the scary nature of that and seeing it visually. I think set off a lot of people in the NFL and in football circles, but it's not a bad conversation 1/2 because the science is its difficult difficult understand because it's variable from person to person and the time the time span in which a concussion can affect you or which you can heal completely. That can also vary dramatically from from human to human being.

I'm talking about sports, so it's it certainly is not worth rushing him back and obviously the Dolphins with all of the uproar and the. The criticism of how they handled this.

They are now treading very carefully. But Mike McDaniel continues to defend the Dolphins and the way that they handle to his health. Going back to that first game against the bills process and really everything involved was how we approach the medical situation still very confident in how we did the he has set multiple times we did nothing wrong.

We followed the letter of the law and I would never forget concussion protocols. He is set multiple times.

I would never put a player at risk of a man with whom I have a relationship with a working relationship. I care about this guy. He's not just my quarterback, but he's someone that I'm in contact with on a daily basis multiple times.

I would never put his health at risk for the sake of winning a football game and I appreciate that.

I hope people trust him because of this point there's been no reason not to. He seems very sincere about it and I'm sure was even more upset and anxious and scared for two other than those of us who are watching on TV to see that up close and he also said that you will was calling for them when he was laying on the ground and that it was very clear that he was not the same guy that he normally works with and interacts with regularly so all of that is scary. We saw the reaction of jail and while we saw the reaction of Tyree kill guys that work with to closely and that have known him. In the case of Jaelyn going back to Alabama so scary for everybody. Dolphins again. They have no reason for us not to believe that I don't own the gets fair to assume that they want to win so badly that they would sacrifice the health of their franchise quarterback. That's kind of a leap that it seems like twitter may I know it's twitter but that's potentially unfair.

I would hate it if people assume the worst about me like that to all right.

You can find us on Twitter after our CBS which team severed the most of the mortification on Monday. Was it the Baltimore Ravens who by the way, we will talk about with our friend Rob Long of 1057 the fan who is part of the big bad morning show on our Baltimore affiliate. He can hop on with us live in the final hour so we will check the pulse of ravens fans after their second big fourth-quarter collapse of the season, both coming in Baltimore is at the Denver Broncos who actually are now adding injury to insult, and Matt, what about that offense what is it that quarterbacks go to Denver to shrivel up and become ineffective because it's been manning that's what seem like a before that it was years that they could find patent to to fill the shoes of John Elway. Trust me. Denver Broncos fans have been through this before. Just stop it. To me that's just wrong right now Carolina Panthers so they're actually considering a court change weight what and then the Washington commanders who would be in the loan were insulting, but certainly the way that they lost. Now the fact that every other team in the NFC East is about 500 but they can't seem to get their act together so who's got the most misery and mortification. On Monday we always love to say goodbye to Monday, but that pole is still a bumble twitter and Facebook. It's after hours with operating system talking, not your computers or phones your internal human operating system.

I'm feeling a little overloaded. Here's how you can ease my stress. Close your eyes are soft wikis at something in front of you. Now inhale for four counts exhale for six keep repeating much better longer-term is better help online therapy still not just with a licensed therapist.

I do not have any like absolutely zero patience for our will over the player position for them to be in harm's way after-hours Lawrence, even though it happened on Thursday. Certainly the biggest injury news week number four that cast a shadow over the weekend. Even teams are more careful when it comes to their players, brains, and hit head is not a bad thing that I do hate that people are accusing Mike McDaniel of being careless with his franchise quarterback health and that the team would would lie about it I just I don't believe that that is happening in Miami and I'm not telling. It's never happened before, but I did. I just don't believe that this team this organization and Mike McDaniel would have blatant disregard for players health. He's brand-new… It's not something that seems to track with him now is a player very often not going to tell the truth if he thinks that he might be held out of the game won't get we know that's happened for years. Not as much of the NFL anymore, but it is on the players also indicate when there's something wrong and do not budget.

Thankfully with concussion protocols. There are ways that even if the players not indicating that's that he has a sensitivity to light, or that noise is bothering him, or doesn't feel right dizzy or woozy.

There are still other ways to tell if he's suffering from a concussion, but it does rely upon the honesty of the the athlete with the medical staff and the training staff to be sure it's after hours with Amy Lawrence on CBS sports radio not just to who was injured in week number four, but actually things go from from bad to you a bit worse for the Denver Broncos who lost one of their top running backs for the season. I John J. Williams has really established himself in the early stages is been able to say she's been a highlight for the Broncos on offense where there hasn't been a highlight in many cases from week to week, but he's going to miss the remainder of the season because of not just a torn ACL, but also there are other ligaments in his knee that are damaged like the LCL and just to the extensive surgery and rehab he can have to go through it always sucks to hear that for a player but he's obviously going to miss the rest of the way and so that's also below for Broncos head coach Nathaniel Hackett losing Toronto is so unfortunate no dynamic player in this league so somebody got a step up and I think that you know with this whole team Peter excited you know for that opportunity and were glad that it comes very soon and so having to wait longer to get up there and go play, so he got hurt against the Raiders.

First play the second half Sunday and he entered the game as the leader in the in the clubhouse of the speak in both caries and rushing yards so he was really a spark for that Broncos offense, but knew right away that it was a serious injury. The Broncos knew after the game Sunday that there was a potential he could be out for the year. Just a second year guy to have to go through this really stinks but was on crutches leaving the stadium and then found out on Monday about the torn ACL and the other ligaments.

He's not the only guy actually who got injured.

Randy Gregory also got hurt, but is not out for the season. He's in a miss multiple weeks because he also has a knee injury that requires a procedure so that was the Denver Broncos. There are there actually was a surprise, or other injuries. One that I was expecting to hear on Monday. That's Cordero Patterson of the Falcons is now on IR. He had a knee procedure on Monday morning, and so he is expected to return this season, but he goes back to last week he had missed a couple days of practice, and he was limited on Friday did play against the Browns and manage he'd been a constant for that offense really reliable for the Falcons offense even going back to last season in a breakout year. Maybe resurgent year. Not a silly breakout rear but now it's 31 years old you the wear and tear on the knees and the body, but he's a guy who generally you can count on to break a big player to per game. He's a back that will he will take the ball as much is you need from him. He's durable generally, and he's also been a kick returner.

And so to not have him is to lose a major weapon, but you remember he was. He had a really good, 20, 21, and had been off to a hot start to get it back.

I think a number last year. The this fantasy world, which is raving about him get a couple of big games and people were maybe a little reticent to believe it would continue all the way to the season but then man he he was fantasy, but I just a guy that was racking up points weekend and week out on even to start this year. He was already really hoping that offense that they do want to run the ball more than anything, especially not having Calvin Ridley and having Marcus Mario.Toyota to throw the ball nearly as much because they want to be a run first team and that's pretty clear with Arthur Smith this is a bomber with Cordero Atlanta Falcons starting running back is really one of the better stories of this year last year to really/is a full-time running back last year out for games after being placed on injured reserve is been battling a knee injury really painful knee injury tried to go on Sunday. In the end needed a procedure which happened this morning relatively minor procedure should be back right at four games book Adele Patterson now on IR and to fill his roster spot only.

I was impressed himself as a really understood all of the Atlanta Falcons running backs.

They ran a little 14 straight times on Sunday. He has now been signed to the active roster spot that it was interesting. Thank you Ian Rappaport in a phone network about it was interesting that they actually beat the Browns at their own game of the Browns clearly want to establish the run. Not only do they have a really solid and competent offense of line but that got Nick Chubb cream Hind Jacoby reset will running out of room a lot but he'll at least two mobile and move around. And so the Browns the Falcons were on the field together and the Atlanta Falcons actually out rushed Cleveland 202 rushing yards. That's crazy.

I think that the Browns were about 189, 170 not have to go back and look I don't quote me on that, but just the fact that the Falcons were able to control the ball on the way that they did with the run game they lose a bit of that without Cordero Patterson obviously all right really get back to baseball and some of the stories that we didn't have a chance to talk about from the weekend like this. This tear of Albert pools and really continued on Monday and also a drought that's finally over 2+ decades.

It is worth listening to how it sounded after a second consecutive walk off to propel the Mariners back to postseason baseball. You can find us on Twitter after hours. CBS also on her Facebook page were always good, good, and glad to connect with you. You are listening to the after-hours pond Protects the flock, and that requires an eye for detail because when safety and well-being are on the line. It's the details that can stabilize even when no one else is watching everything here for you and all the ones who get done with a wide range of products and solutions is board certified safety consultants here to answer your question, call, just not by Granger 112. Albert Albert began his career in your you thousand picture was four months old. His pitching against the great Albert pools the judgment little of the basic level swings and he drives us one runs no want to break the rules. It seems to me that every one of his home. We will pay one after-hours Lawrence, I do not believe that our rules did come out.

Actually, I was listening to the broadcast Cardinals radio and you hear them there.

Tom Rooney with the call. There 703 and they did not say that Albert came out I couldn't hear any reaction behind them as they moved on to the next batter, get this, Albert pools who just hit 701702 and 703.

Over the last four days. Now is 24 homeruns this year, which is his most since 2016. He had 31 for the Angels that season. There was a lot of skepticism about whether or not he could hit 700 and he just continues to plow forward and he has now passed Babe Ruth for the second most RBI of all time for the two run home run she here on Cardinals radio on Monday evening in Pittsburgh. My favorite park in the majors. PNC Park actually one of Albert's favorite too busy has more home runs their than any other part that he's visited outside of St. Louis 35 at PNC Park so the Pirates fades about a front row seat to see a good portion of Albert's history, but that to run home run at PNC gave him 2216 runs batted in. Over the course of his career which is second only to Hank Aaron 2297 for Hank Babe Ruth numbers a little bit unofficial because stats were kept for runs batted in until 1920 may been more there, but Albert we know all of his it's after hours with Amy Lawrence on CBS sports radio as I was looking around at Twitter on Monday afternoon. I happen to catch this video monitors show Twitter. I think it was put out by the Cardinals actually saw me go and look real quick. I actually know is put out by the MLB Twitter and it goes back to April 9, 2001. This also by the way the last time that the Mariners made the playoffs was 2001, April 9, 2001. Albert Homer is in his first regular season at-bats with the Cardinals at home. Okay, so he is in Busch Stadium and he is a homerun in what is his first regular season at-bats with the Cardinals. Fast-forward to October 2, 2022 21 1/2 years later he Homer is in his last regular-season at-bat in Busch Stadium with the Cardinals.

Kinda cool to think about that though the card to send out an amazing job, not just honoring him but presenting this stage for for his exit and he as well as yachting or melena will be retiring at the end of the season. There's no doubt about either one of those Albert is that he doesn't care what the numbers are whenever he exits that that he's done this is his last year he won't reconsider the way that he's continued to match the peaceful, the fact that so many of his home runs have come in critical situations and even with number 703 on Monday. His manager points out that this this type and clutch is a big swinging even same passed Babe Ruth a mom deal to do with the two run homer will give us leave their wills was fun to watch. Mitch Keller gave up homerun number 703 in Pittsburgh never want to give them up, but if I was going to give it up to anybody else. Sudden incredible urine is the machine for reason just group learning. In all five. I would agree. You never want to give up homerun is a picture but in this situation with Albert pools on the way out with easy this game essentially meaningless in terms of standings in the Cardinals already had the NL Central title, the Pirates are out of it. I mean, I wouldn't mind being another pitcher who got to face our approvals and can share a story from the end of 2022. Recruit a really neat gesture for the Cardinals in their final regular-season home game with Adam Wainwright yachting or melena Albert pools will get to that coming up a little bit later on. But before the top of the hour we got the more dramatic highlights to share. This is worth listening to. Over and over and over again. It was 21 years in the making for the Mariners and the fans in Seattle first time here is yours. There seven years ago we wow if you watched any of the Mariners games over the weekend and really going back to Thursday. We were here. They walk up on Thursday and asked ratings that put their magic number at wine and Scott service said at that point we are going to end this drought tomorrow referring to Friday and then Cal Riley had to walk off homerun on Friday to officially propel the Mariners into the playoffs and it was a wild celebration. So first. The final call with Rick Reyes on Mariners radio that year Cal on route sports Northwest and finally Scott service addressing the team would not the team.

The fans there on the field and how cool it is to know that we've got that drought over with. It was the longest of the four major teams, portals, rose. You may remember going back to a few years ago when the Buffalo Bills finally ended their playoff drought. What that meant not just to build Mafia but to football fans all over the country who just kinda rooting for a team, an underdog if you will, drought, and not those the kind of stories that even for casual fans. We can sink your teeth into.

So congratulations to the Mariners. We also had another team clinch over the weekends. Just your head is over 2022 Padres are playoff following along in one photo in many Matata before that course one he was with the teenager when nationals one was 19 2019. So yeah it's a blessing to be back with the Padres not there were some stretches there were but wasn't sure. The Padres were to make it even after they made the trade for Soto and the others they brought on board, but they been able to secure their spot on the NL West was out of reach for a long time because of the Dodgers. But I do believe they can be a dangerous team in the playoffs. We don't really know the matchups yet we know that the wildcard series will begin coming up on Friday and on the way that they have it set up is that it's best-of-three and it's essentially all the way through all the way through the weekend so it's Friday, Saturday, Sunday, and we just don't know the times or the particular matchups yet the baseball playoffs are here they're here so you better buckle up and be ready after hours with Amy Lawrence right here on CBS sports radio. If you're feeling down and having trouble getting up in the morning. Here's a tip.
