Not much stays secret in the AFL, despite the best efforts of clubs, which makes the surprise news that Dale Morris played in the grand final with a broken back a significant coup for the Western Bulldogs.In fact he played the whole finals series with the problem he suffered in the Dogs round 23 loss to Fremantle.Morris still wasnt saying much about the specifics of the injury - it is believed he has two fractured vertebrae - when he spoke to reporters at Whitten Oval on Sunday.The 33-year-old was a key figure in the 22-point win over Sydney, with several desperate spoils and jarring tackles - notably a last-quarter effort against Lance Franklin - despite his back concern.There was speculation Morris had been dealing with a heel issue in the lead up to the grand final after he was spied undergoing a fitness test behind closed doors at Whitten Oval on Wednesday.But the true nature of the injury emerged after the Dogs drought-breaking grand final win.There are going to be a lot of stories coming out about what guys have been through ... everyone plays through injuries, Morris said.I wasnt going to miss this for the world.Obviously we kept it pretty quiet, but the medical staff were awesome. (Club doctors Gary Zimmeran and Jake Landsberger) especially did some amazing work and our fitness team were great in helping me get up every week.Morris said the injury sounds worse than it is and that he wasnt in too much discomfort on Sunday.Coach Luke Beveridge admitted he was in awe of the veterans effort.Try and hold him back ... his courage and bravery got him through, Beveridge said.I was a bit concerned when he got hit early in the game, it would have hit that area, but he made it through. Gorgui Dieng Jersey.J. -- Marty Brodeur beat the Pittsburgh Penguins yet again. Kris Dunn Jersey. It just didnt show when he hit the ice. Berra made 42 saves and Kris Russell scored at 1:32 of overtime, lifting the Calgary Flames to a 3-2 victory over the Chicago Blackhawks on Sunday night. Following a lopsided 5-2 loss against the New Jersey Devils on Wednesday night, Paul MacLean told reporters that "theres a lack of focus, theres a lack of leadership and theres a lack of preparation" with his struggling team. That came on the heels of Bryan Murray taking the unusual step of going into the locker room at the Prudential Center and addressing the players himself. Jordan Hill Timberwolves Jersey. LOUIS -- Valtteri Filppula assisted on three of Tampa Bays four goals, and the Lightning beat the St. Tyus Jones Jersey. For the Wild it was their first win of the season and they now have a record of 1-1-2 while the Jets fall to 2-2. Jets start a six game home stand Friday with another divisional game, home to the Dallas Stars.Jordan Spieth enjoyed a short spell at the top of the leaderboard at the AT&T Byron Nelson before Ben Crane stood out from the crowd among the late starters to eke out a one-shot lead going into the weekend. World No 2 Spieth, who has a surprisingly poor record in his home state since finishing in a tie for 16th here as a 16-year-old, fired a five-under 65 to join Brooks Koepka and Bud Cauley in a share of the lead after the morning starters had completed their rounds.When the late starters got going, overnight leader Sergio Garcia signed for a 66 to join them at 11 under, but it was Crane who starred with eight birdies in his round of 63 moving him to 12 under after two rounds. On Thursday, Crane had completed his first bogey-free round in 36 attempts to join a nine-way tie for eighth, and although he did drop a shot on the eighth second time around, he could have few complaints about how they day ended. Ben Crane leads going into the third round in Texas As he did in the opening round, Spieth again dropped a shot on the par-three 13th, but otherwise had six birdies to keep himself firmly in contention.I took advantage of the easier holes, a couple of the long holes, I found both par fives in two and two-putted for birdies, the 22-year-old said on the PGA Tour website. Spieth is right in contention in his home state - one off the pace Just very limited mistakes.dddddddddddd Ive three-putted the 13th twice now but really those are the only mistakes Ive made this week.Garcia, like Crane, began his round in the afternoon but could not match his opening-day efforts, carding four birdies in an error-free round of 66 that left him in the tie for second place.The suspension of play early on Thursday evening left a handful of players to complete their rounds on Friday morning, and Danny Lee and Johnson Wagner used the opportunity to join Garcia at the top of the leaderboard as they matched his round of 63.However, they fell away in their second rounds with Lee dropped into a tie for eighth with a 69 and Wagner managing only an even-par 70 after three bogeys in four holes on the front nine. Sergio Garcia is in a four-way tie for second place after a 66 The round of the day belonged to DA Points, who had six birdies and a bogey on the front nine to make the turn at five- under, and he was threatening the course record of 60 after three straight birdies from the 11th to the 13th.However, he played the final five holes for par to settle for a 62 which vaulted him up into a share of 16th place at seven under.Watch all the excitement of the AT&T Byron Nelson throughout the weekend live on Sky Sports 4 - your home of golf Also See: AT&T Byron Nelson leaders Garcia makes bright start First round highlights Spieth: Hard work paying off Wholesale Jerseys  Cheap NFL Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Authentic Jerseys From China Wholesale Jerseys Wholesale NFL Jerseys ' ' '
