CORTLAND, N. Cheap Air Max Destined .Y. -- New York Jets running back Joe McKnight appeared to be OK after he was carted to the locker room, wearing an oxygen mask, after dropping to the field during a drill Monday. McKnight, who has a history of migraine headaches, has been recovering from a head injury and dealing with dehydration during training camp. About an hour after being escorted to the locker room, he walked to the field to watch the end of practice in a T-shirt and shorts while wearing dark sunglasses. McKnight was not available to the media, walking past reporters without comment, and the Jets had no further details on his condition. The Jets confirmed that while he was in the locker room being treated, McKnight angrily responded on Twitter to someone he thought was a reporter who wrote, "about time you get released. Good luck. And stay healthy." McKnight tweeted about trying to keep his cool before adding "now it has gone too far with these reporters." He then asked, "are you outside," but a public relations staff member assured McKnight the critical tweet had not come from a reporter but a fan. Heading to the field at the start of practice, he dropped to a knee three times and was examined by trainers. After pouring water over his head, McKnight then jogged and appeared OK. "If the trainers thought he would be at risk, he would never be out there, ever," Jets coach Rex Ryan said. Wearing a red no-contact jersey, he was participating in a drill 45 minutes into practice when he went down again after diving for a pass. Trainers rushed to him, and then walked him to a medical tent behind the field. McKnight remained on his right side as he was examined for several minutes. It appeared trainers were also checking his lower left leg before he was removed on a cart. He was wearing an oxygen mask as he walked gingerly on his own into the locker room while a trainer held the tank. "For whatever reason, he stopped or whatever and thats fine," Ryan said. "Theres no chance any player would be on the field if the trainers or doctors felt that it wasnt safe for that person to be there." McKnight has had a rough summer. He failed a conditioning test just before the team reported to Cortland, but passed the next day. He blamed the failure on dehydration and his low percentage of body fat (3.3 per cent). Ryan also suggested that McKnight has "anxiety" when it comes to the conditioning tests. McKnight was arrested two weeks ago in New Jersey for outstanding traffic warrants. He was released on $320 bail, the amount of the tickets. Later that week, he injured his head during practice -- an injury the Jets still havent officially called a concussion -- and he returned to the field Sunday, wearing the no-contact jersey. After practice, McKnight spoke to reporters for three minutes, but refused to answer any questions about his head injury or the arrest, repeatedly saying, "Im not getting into that right now." McKnight, the teams fourth-round pick out of Southern California in 2010, has had his moments on the field with the Jets, but his inconsistency has kept him from being a bigger part of the offence. He has proven himself to be an outstanding kick returner, with two touchdowns, including a 107-yard score in 2011 thats the longest play in franchise history. But his health issues possibly put him on the bubble for making the 53-man roster. "Weve got a long way to go before we make the final decisions and things," Ryan said. "But Joe has led the league in kick returns. He has plenty of talent, but durability, there is concern about durability."

Amid a rain of confetti, Shabazz Napier basked in the celebration on the court after being named the Most Outstanding Player of the Final Four following the 60-54 win over Kentucky.MELBOURNE, Australia -- On current form and on a very familiar golf course, the two top-ranked players at the World Cup -- Adam Scott and Matt Kuchar -- are heavy favourites for individual honours when play begins Thursday at Royal Melbourne. No. 2-ranked Scott has won two tournaments in a row -- the Australian PGA and the Australian Masters, which was held last week at Royal Melbourne. Seventh-ranked Kuchar led by two strokes late in the final round of the Masters before a double-bogey on 18 enabled Scott to successfully defend his title. Kuchar finished second. "He has been in such good form," Kuchar said of Scott on Wednesday. "To at least give him a run it was awfully good. I stood five back going into Sunday. Unfortunately I got a bad break on 18 and thats part of golf." The Australians, with Scotts teammate Jason Day at No. 18, are the highest-ranked team this week and will have the benefit of local crowds. "Its an interesting week," Scott said Wednesday. "Were playing together as a team but we still want to beat each other." Added Day: "I dont know whether to love him or not if he beats me." Kuchar and his teammate, Kevin Streelman, will attempt to successfully defend for the Americans the title that Kuchar and Gary Woodland won in 2011. The differences between the tournament, format-wise, that Kuchar and Woodland won in 2011 is about as far as the distance between Royal Melbourne and Haiku, China, where the Americans won. Then, it was a team event in keeping with the near 60-year history of the tournament. Two days of four-ball competition, two days of foursomes. This time, to prepare for golfs return to the Olympics and the format that will be used in Rio, its basically an individual stroke-play event. The financial emphasis is on the individual portion of the tournament -- $7 million in prize money to be divided among the 60-man field, including $1.2 to the winner. And just $1 million allocated for the teams event, with money only going to the top three teams. Cheap Air Max 2013. Kuchar said the change doesnt bother him. "I know the format is different but the golf is the same," Kuchar said. "Its much more of an individual event ... but there is a team component and I think we have got as good a shot as anybody." Earlier, U.S. PGA Tour Commissioner Tim Finchem defended the move away from the team-only concept at a media conference Wednesday at Royal Melbourne. "I think it is way too soon to conclude that the team portion of the Cup is lost," Finchem said. "We havent played yet so lets see how that plays out and then we will see. We feel like the tournament is more marketable. We think that it has a better chance of fulfilling its mission which is to create more interest in the game in unique ways." "But we will see. If we go down this road and it doesnt work, we will adjust, but we are going to give this every chance to work." The system being used to determine the entries at the Word Cup -- rankings and number of players eligible from each country based on those rankings, will be used at Rio in 2016. The other differences are that there will be no team competition at the Olympics, and there, golfers from England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland who are playing as separate countries at the World Cup, will play as Britain. Also, at the World Cup, Ireland and Northern Ireland play as one team. So this week, Northern Irelands Graeme McDowell and Irelands Shane Lowry will play together. McDowell says Scott is unquestionably the favourite this week. "From Scottys point of view, he is just one of those guys you play with and you think to yourself Why does this guy not win every week?" McDowell said Wednesday. "Hes that impressive." There are 26 teams taking part and eight individual golfers, including Fijis Vijay Singh, who finished third at the Australian Masters
