Chiefs lineman wants to add ‘M.D.’ to jersey after completing medical school

When Chiefs offensive lineman Laurent Duvernay-Tardif completes medical school in May, he may have the coolest M.D. business card ever — his jersey.

Duvernay-Tardif told the Kansas City Star he wants his jersey nameplate to read Duvernay-Tardif M.D. once he completes his seven-year journey through medical school with one final exam this spring.

I’ve already started a conversation with the league office, and they say that anything is possible, Duvernay-Tardif said.

Foster is just that for Lynch and the 49ers, who have taken a hard stand against domestic violence since the Ray McDonald issues a few years ago.

Last season, Brees threw for 4,334 yards while completing 72.0 percent of his passes. He also threw 23 touchdown passes with just eight interceptions while leading the Saints one freak play away from the NFC championship game.

With Michael Thomas and Alvin Kamara already on board, the Saints’ second order of business will likely focus around acquiring more weapons for Brees once they get him signed.

After the game, reporters asked Talbot for his thoughts on the challenge, and the goaltender did not pull any punches about his feelings for the league’s goaltender interference rule.

The Oilers have been burned by goaltender interference calls before, as captain Connor McDavid was flagged for interference in overtime on a play that looked legal by all standards. Maroon’s call was a bit more gray than McDavid’s, but that is very much the reason Talbot has voiced his complaints. The NHL’s goaltender interference rule has been a thorn in the league’s side all season, as the league seemingly has no idea how to call this rule on a consistent basis every night.

Hurney, a candidate for the Panthers’ permanent GM role, was placed on paid administrative leave earlier this month after his ex-wife, Jeanne Hurney, filed a complaint of harassment against him. Jeanne Hurney withdrew that complaint after a judge found no evidence of domestic violence in denying a temporary restraining order against her ex-husband.
