  • The Texans began experimenting with Kareem Jackson at safety during the offseason program as the team explored all options in trying to replace Andre Hal. Jackson performed so well at the position that he will play the position full time at training camp Brett Favre Jersey , John McClain of the Houston Chronicle reports.

    Jackson, 30 Tedy Bruschi Jersey , has practiced at safety in the past, but his 108 career starts were at cornerback.

    Coach Bill O’Brien said Friday that Jackson still can play corner when needed but will work only at safety for now. Jackson is more needed at safety after Hal was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s Lymphoma.

    Hal started all 16 games at free safety last season Frank Clark Jersey , and Houston signed Tyrann Mathieu to man the strong safety spot.

    Jackson will compete with Justin Reid, the team’s third-round pick Justin Evans Jersey , for the starting job.

    Los Angeles Angels rookie reliever Jake Jewell has a broken right leg and could miss the rest of the season.

     

    The Angels put Jewell on the 10-day disabled list Thursday, a day after he was injured in a game against Boston. He’s scheduled to have surgery Friday.

    Jewell was carted off the field at Fenway Park on Wednesday night. Called up from Triple-A earlier in the day Justin Jones Jersey , he appeared to catch his cleat as he covered the plate on a run-scoring wild pitch and fractured his fibula. The 25-year-old was hurt in his third big league game.

    The Angels recalled right-handed pitcher Eduardo Paredes from Triple-A Salt Lake and added right-hander Taylor Cole to the major league roster.

    The club also optioned infielder Nolan Fontana to Salt Lake and transferred infielder Zack Cozart to the 60-day DL. Cozart is scheduled to have season-ending surgery to repair a torn labrum in his left shoulder on Friday.
