TAMPA, Fla. Asics Clearance Shoes Australia . -- Steven Stamkos will not play for Team Canada at the Sochi Olympics after tests revealed Wednesday that his broken right leg is not completely healed. Tampa Bay Lightning doctors said they couldnt clear him to play after examining his most recent CT scan and will re-evaluate his condition again in two to three weeks. Lightning captain and teammate Martin St. Louis has been named as his replacement. Its a big blow for the 23-year-old, who had been optimistic earlier this week that he might be able to play by as soon as Saturday. "Today is obviously very disappointing for me," Stamkos said in a release. "I honestly believe that we did everything possible in order to have my injured leg ready in time for the Olympics, but I realize you cant force healing. I know, in the best interest of my long-term health, I cannot represent Canada in Sochi, as much as I would like to." Yzerman said Stamkos "should not be participating in game action at any time in the near future." "Although the doctor was very pleased to this point with the healing process, he explained that the callus surrounding the fracture site is not 100 per cent consolidated, and Steven will not be cleared to play in a game until that happens," said Yzerman. "It was a pretty clear-cut decision, no grey areas at all." Sidney Crosby, the captain for Team Canada, was disappointed to hear that Stamkos would not be heading to Sochi. "Its tough to see. I think we all figured if theres anyone thats going to find a way back, it would be him," Crosby said, after scoring a goal and adding an assist in Pittsburghs 5-1 win at Buffalo Wednesday night. "That being said, its probably more difficult for him than anyone else. You feel for him, but we obviously have to move forward." Crosby declined to suggest who he might favour as a candidate to replace Stamkos. "With different guys in the mix, I think its a good problem to have," Crosby said. "But nonetheless, I dont think its an easy decision at all." NHL players are set to leave Sunday and arrive in Sochi on Monday. Canadas first game is Feb. 13. Stamkos suffered the injury Nov. 11 and hasnt played since. He underwent surgery to have a titanium rod inserted into the tibia. Asics Shoes Australia Sale .

The stakes were higher, the competition more fierce and the atmosphere was that of a playoff game - something the young, upstart Raptors have five weeks to better prepare themselves for or the result will be eerily similar.CHARLOTTE, N.C. - Panthers rookie wide receiver Kelvin Benjamin missed his second straight day of practice Thursday with a concussion, raising concerns about his availability for Sundays game at Green Bay.Coach Ron Rivera said after practice the standout rookie is in the concussion protocol and will meet with independent doctors Friday to determine if hes ready to play against the Packers. Rivera said its unclear when hell make a decision on Benjamins status.If Benjamin cant play, Rivera said it would be a considerable loss for the offence in light of who he is for us.The first-round draft pick from Florida State has emerged as Carolinas best wide receiver. He leads all rookies with 416 yards receiving on 31 catches, including four touchdowns. Only tight end Greg Olsen has more receptions than Benjamin for the Panthers.Rivera earlier this week termed Benjamins concussion as mild after he took a shot to his helmet from Bengals linebacker Vontaze Burfict in the second quarter of Sundays game. The 6-foot-5-245-pound Benjamin passed his concussion test on the sideline and return to the game, finishing with seven catches for 49 yards and a touchdown.Rivera said Benjamin did very well when examined by independent doctors on Wednesday and then took the next step after meeting with the teams trainers on Thursday.Benjamin has been unavailable for comment this week.Well see how hes doing on Friday, Rivera said. Hopefully, he passes. If he does, great.If not, the Panthers could turn to Brenton Bersin to make his first NFL start.Rivera indicated Bersin, rookie Philly Brown and Jason Avant are all options. The Panthers are also considering activating quarterback Joe Webb as a fifth wide receiver. Webb began getting reps at wide receiver this week. Asics Shoes Australia Cheap. . He has played the position before with the Minnesota Vikings.Bersin has filled in for Benjamin this season when he needs a breather and caught a pass in each of the last five games.After spending two seasons on the practice squad, Bersin became only the second player from Wofford College to see action in the NFL. The other is Panthers owner Jerry Richardson.It would be a great opportunity, Bersin said. Im preparing like Im going to start. I know this offence in and out.The Panthers also have questions at running back again this week.DeAngelo Williams remains out with a high ankle sprain, but his primary backup Jonathan Stewart appears ready to roll after missing the last three games with a sprained knee. Stewart has practiced all week and Rivera said hes taken the next step in practice.Chris Ogbannayo and either Darrin Reaves or Fozzy Whittaker — if either is healthy enough to play after both sat out practice Wednesday and Thursday — will serve as the third-string back.The good news for the Panthers is their leading rusher, quarterback Cam Newton, is making plays again with his feet. The Panthers entered last weeks game ranked 31st in the league in rushing, but the injury-riddled Newton was finally given the green light to run and racked up 107 yards on 17 carries and a touchdown in a 37-37 tie with Cincinnati. He also threw for 284 yards and two touchdowns.Rivera said Newton is playing his best football since coming into the league despite dealing with rib and ankle injuries.This may have been that next big step that were all looking for him to take, Rivera said.___AP NFL website: http://www.pro32.ap.org and http://www.twitter.com/AP_NFL ' ' '
