The other guys — King and Sperry — not so much K

first_imgThe other guys — King and Sperry — not so much.King, who missed all of OTAs after undergoing offseason surgery, continues to sit for precautionary reasons on the sidelines at University of Phoenix Stadium with fluid on his knee.And Sperry, who played one game with Arizona last season, was one of camp’s early surprises before going down with an ankle injury Monday.“I was really ticked, because Kory was having a heck of a camp,” Arians said. “Finding that he can play fullback, move around and block — because I already knew he could catch — I was really pleased. So, I hated him having a setback because he was really coming on.”Arians noted that while he knows what King can do on the football field, he was encouraged by what Jefferson and Sperry bring from a blocking perspective. In his eyes, both ‘help the picture’ on offense.In the interim, though, there is a small bit of good news on the tight end front. The team claimed Mickey Shuler off waivers Sunday, and the former Penn State standout will take the field for the first time during the Cardinals’ afternoon practice Tuesday.“We’ve got Mickey Shuler going today,” said Arians. “It adds another body, and we’re anxious to see him join the fray a little bit.

Jefferson and Kory Sperry, Bruce Arians seemed to have plenty of depth at the tight end position going into training camp.Yet five days in, the once-versatile group has already been depleted by injury, making it hard for the Cardinals head coach to evaluate a staple position in his offense.“The injuries are really hurting us right now,” Arians said Tuesday. “Rob [Housler] is looking really good. D.C. Jefferson is making the best of the opportunities, and Jim Dray is as steady as they get. So, we’re finding out about those guys.” – / 22 “We’re still looking [for other options], but unfortunately there’s not much available this time of year. We were fortunate Mickey came across the wire. He was with a couple of our coaches down in Miami, and they think he has a chance.”last_img read more

Tesla Model 3 Yields For Ambulance Gets Smashed By Mack Truck Video

first_img Tesla Model 3 Gets 5-Star Safety Rating From NHTSA Source: Electric Vehicle News Some smaller cars may be no match for a Mack truck, but this Tesla Model 3 protects.Unless you’re in the accident yourself, it’s hard to grasp specific details and circumstances. However, now that Tesla owners can share their experiences due to the cars’ built-in dashcam (TeslaCam), we have access to an increasing number of videos that provide accident footage.In this particular share, a Tesla Model 3 owner stops for an ambulance and is then rear-ended by a Mack truck. It’s not difficult to tell from the video that the truck is following rather closely and hits the Model 3 with quite an impact. However, the Tesla driver is able to keep driving immediately after the crash. Fortunately, as the story goes, the Model 3 protected the occupant. She walked away from the collision without any major injuries.Related Tesla Model 3 Safety Content: Author Liberty Access TechnologiesPosted on April 3, 2019Categories Electric Vehicle News CEO Elon Musk continues to assert that Tesla makes the safest vehicles on the road today. We have watched videos and read many accounts of Tesla safety being a reality. Time and time again Tesla owners rave about how their cars saved their lives. However, the “safest” claim is virtually impossible to prove. There are many very safe vehicles on the road that save lives on a daily basis.While these videos are increasingly available and can prove compelling, we rely on crash testing by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) to determine each vehicle’s overall safety. The NHTSA awards the Model 3 with a five-star overall safety rating, which is comprised of five stars in every category. The Tesla Model 3 has not been fully evaluated by the IIHS, but the institute gives its front crash prevention tech a Superior rating and its headlights the top rating of Good.We’ll have to wait and see if the IIHS designates the Model 3 as a Top Safety Pick or coveted Top Safety Pick+.Video Description via iceman w on YouTube:Tesla Model 3 vs Mack truckThe following is dash cam footage from an accident that my wife was involved in. She stopped at an intersection to yield for an ambulance and was then hit by a Mack truck which couldn’t stop. She was lucky enough to walk a away from the crash without any major injuries.
