It didnt look like a dangerous play. Enos Slaughter Jersey . Back on July 12th, in a game against the Calgary Stampeders, Chad Owens was returning a punt. As he cut across the field he was tackled by a pair of Stamps, who fell on Owens. The weight of the two players bent back his foot, causing the discomfort. Despite the injury, Owens still finished the game. Remarkably he finished with nine catches for 102 yards. On Saturday afternoon, Owens, who led the league in receptions a year ago, returns to the field in Edmonton as the Argos take on the Eskimos. Its not a moment too soon for the player known league wide as The Flyin Hawaiian. "Im excited," said Owens. "This is what Ive dedicated my life to do. This is what I love to do. I love to compete. I love to go out there and play football and to be back out there feels really good." Despite the frustration of not being able to play, Owens tried to make the most of his down time. "Any time you get to watch, you get to learn as well," said the receiver. "Thats what I did, I became a student. I became a fan. I got to watch some young guys step up, make plays. I got to familiarize myself with the new guys and how theyre running routes and how theyre doing things, because I knew eventually when I got back some of those guys may be around me and Id have to get a feel for how theyre doing things." Despite missing five of the Argos eight games, Owens still leads the team with 28 catches for 339 yards. Those marks still lead the team by six catches and 116 yards. To say that head coach Scott Milanovich is happy to see Owens back is an understatement. "It means a ton to Ricky (QB Ray)," said the coach. "Hes a guy that knows the offence that Ricky can count on to be in the right spot at the right time." Also happy to see Owens back is aforementioned QB. Ray says Owens return is big for the Argos offence. "Hes a special player," Ray told media before the game. "He does a lot of things out there. Hes a guy that you just want to get the ball into his hands and let him do his thing. All quarterbacks love the guys who can RAC, run after the catch. He makes me look good quite a bit." In any other circumstance the focus would be on Ray. Hes back in the city in which he starred for nine seasons, and hes 367 yards shy of the 50,000-yard mark for his career, something only Anthony Calvillo, Damon Allen, Danny McManus, Henry Burris and Ron Lancaster have accomplished. Elite company to be sure, something Ray is aware of. "Its going to be pretty special, obviously," said Ray. "The other guys that are in that club, some of whom Ive played against throughout my career, some of whom you hear about when you first come here, the legends that they are. Just to be in that group would be pretty special." "Its not something thats really on my mind," continued the QB. "Youre trying to win the football game. I think its more of when the seasons over, when youre done playing to kind of reflect back on and say it was pretty cool, Im pretty lucky." When pressed on the career milestone, and whether it would be important to hit the mark at Commonwealth Stadium, Ray quickly put that to bed. "No, no," said the 12-year veteran. "Trying to do it here or anywhere else, just doing it is pretty special regardless of where its at. Im just looking forward to come out here and playing (the Eskimos) and whoever it is the next week and when it happens it will be a great moment, but its not something Im going to take two weeks vacation to celebrate, its something more of when Im done playing to be happy about." Owens return comes at a good time for the Argos. The injury-plagued receiving corps is starting to get healthy. Jason Barnes returned last week, Owens is ready to go Saturday, which leaves only Andre Durie and Jason Chiles on the shelf, among those who were starters at the beginning of the season. Milanovich says Durie is getting close to being ready and the Argos are hoping to get him back for the Labour Day Classic against the Hamilton Tiger Cats. Chiles will be another three weeks or so. Red Schoendienst Jersey . The alley-oop looked easy -- just like everything else after halftime for the Miami Heat. James scored 32 points, Wade added 22 points and eight assists, and the Heat trailed by 11 early in the second half before running away to a 107-88 victory over the New Orleans Pelicans on Tuesday night. Jedd Gyorko Jersey . "There are a lot of things that are going very well in this organization. Im not coming in here to rip things apart," Nicholson told reporters Friday. "I know what Hockey Canada was when I started, and I know where this (Oilers) organization is today. http://www.cardinalsrookiestore.com/Cardinals-Mike-Shannon-Kids-Jersey/ . Siddikur, who led on all four days and took a four-stroke lead going into the final day, bogeyed four out of six holes starting at the sixth and continued a forgettable last round in which he returned a three-over 75 to finish with a 14-under 274.Bournemouth boss Eddie Howe says his side have shown vast improvement since their last encounter with Manchester City. The Cherries were hammered 5-1 at the Etihaad last October, but with the exception of a 3-0 defeat at Tottenham on March 20, Howe has been delighted with the teams performances in recent months.I think naturally we have moved on, hopefully for the better but that will be tested in the performance, said Howe ahead of Saturdays clash with Manuel Pellegrinis side at Dean Court. That game last year was a difficult one for us. We conceded very early and when you go away it does make it more difficult. The key thing is we learned from that and we have become a better team for the experience.I still feel the players are confident despite the Tottenham game, which was a really disappointing performance. We still feel as though we need results and points. I dont think we can afford to step off, and we will try and deliver. Raheem Sterling scores Manchester Citys first goal past Adam Federici of Bournemouth in October Although Citys form in the Premier League has dipped since the club announced Pep Guardiola will be taking charge of the team next season, Pellegrini remains focused on securing a place in the top four prior to his departure. Whitey Herzog Jersey. He is still their manager so it changes nothing for us, added Howe. It has been a difficult season for them - probably a season where they had such high expectations and things havent gone quite the way they wanted them to.They are still in arguably the biggest competition, the Champions League, and if they can still win that then they will be looking back on an historic season for them.
