UB Wrestler injured; in serious condition

  • Posted on March 8, 2010 at 5:29 pm

Dan Bishop UBUniversity at Buffalo senior wrestler Dan Bishop is in serious condition at Saginaw St. Marys Hospital after suffering a spinal injury on Saturday afternoon while competing at the Mid-American Conference championships at Central Michigan University.

Bishop was taken to St. Marys Hospital Saturday afternoon after suffering the injury in the 125-pound semifinal match. Saturday night he underwent emergency surgery to relieve the inflammation on his spinal cord after it was determined that a fracture had occurred between his C5 and C6 vertebrae and that damage to one of his major arteries had also occurred. Doctors performed successful surgery that included fusing the two vertebrae back together and installing a metal plate and permanent screws to support the spine. At the time of the surgery, Bishop had lost feeling to all of his extremities.

Bills sign Cornell Green

  • Posted on March 8, 2010 at 4:57 pm

The Buffalo Bills have signed Oakland Raiders free agent right tackle Cornell Green to a three-year contract worth $9 million.

The 10-year veteran has been with the Raiders the past three years, starting 38 games, mostly at right tackle.

During his career he’s also played for the New York Jets, Miami Dolphins, Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Denver Broncos. He was signed an undrafted free agent in 1999 after playing for Central Florida in college.

Green has had trouble with the law over the past year.  In March of 2009 he was arrested and charged with domestic violence in Florida.

According to a USA Today report, the Tampa police said Green became violent during an argument at his home there with the mother of his two children. Police said Green slammed 30-year-old Teriyonal Ebony Flowers into a wall, then struck her right arm with an aluminum mop handle.

The police said he then fled the house and was later arrested at Tampa International Airport before a flight he had planned to take to Oakland.

The Bills have an obvious need to fill at right tackle following the unexpected retirement of Brad Butler last month.

But given his age and recent performance this particular signing is a mystery.  According to Stats.com, in 12 starts last year Green committed 12 penalties including seven false starts (sound familiar, Bills fans?).  He was also credited with being responsible for 6.5 sacks.

UPDATE: The NFL Network has just confirmed this report.

Nicholson lived up to his preseason All-Conference second team billing and is the first Bonnie since 2006 to be named to an A-10 All-Conference team. The 6-foot-9 forward’s stellar second season has come on the heels of being named the A-10 Rookie of the Year in 2009.

Nicholson is one two players in the A-10 that ranks in the top 10 in scoring (8th) and rebounding (10th), leading his team in both categories at 16.2 points and 7.1 boards, respectively. His 58 percent (185-320) shooting clip from the field leads the A-10 and is bolstered by a team-high 44 dunks.

The Arizona Cardinals are interested in him as well and according to Schefter, Porter is scheduled to visit with the team on Thursday.
