HARRISON, N. Custom Philadelphia Phillies Jersey .J. - For an MLS team that has seen more change than any other, the New York Red Bulls players are expecting more turmoil this off-season now that they know that Thierry Henry wont return.Two days after being eliminated one goal shy the MLS Cup final - and a day after Henry said he was done, the Red Bulls sat rather glumly in front of their lockers on Tuesday reflecting on the past season and contemplating a possibly more upheaval that has come to mark the club.Theres a lot thats going to happen this off-season, (more) than we could even speculate goalkeeper Luis Robles said, noting the expansion draft, trades and the leagues collective bargaining negotiations with the players union. I really feel there a lot of questions up in the air that may not have immediate answers.The Red Bulls have used 250 players since beginning in 1996, 13 more than the next closest MLS team, the Colorado Rapids. Its roster has been highlighted by some of the biggest names in soccer: Lothar Matthaeus, Roberto Donadoni, Youri Djorkaeff and Rafa Marquez.The departure of Henry, 37, will be felt especially by Bradley Wright-Phillips, who equaled MLS single-season scoring record of Roy Lassiter and Chris Wondolowski this season with 27 goals.Its a sad day. Its a sad day, Wright-Phillips said. I never fully accepted it until I heard it was going to be announced. Its going to take some replacing. I dont think you can replace the man.Neither coach Mike Petke nor sporting director Andy Roxburgh made themselves available to reporters to address possible off-season changes.With Australian international midfielder Tim Cahill starting only three of the final nine games of the regular season and only two of five playoff matches, its unclear whether the teams other designated player signed outside the salary cap will return, despite having a year remaining on his contract.Each team is permitted three designated players.Cahill was seen in the players lounge but did not speak with reporters.Others, like midfielder Dax McCarty, 27, who has been with three teams in nine years — the last 2 1/2 with New York — thinks significant change is inevitable.Weve all heard rumours. But obviously when you lose a guy like Thierry, things are going to change, because he was a big part of this team, McCarty said. And for the last 4 1/2 years he was one of the best players in the league.Henry wouldnt comment on how much he expected the team to change, saying it was not far. He said he will most miss the camaraderie, but was quick to emphasize that did not necessarily mean he was retiring.It was always going to be 4 1/2 years, he said.When asked about a possible return to English club Arsenal, where Henry played for eight years, he was equally non-committal.Thats a wish. Christmas is arriving soon, so its a wish, he said. Its a wish. Everybody knows how much I love the club.Whatever Henry does, he said he will keep his New York home.Hopefully theyll let me come back and watch some games, he joked. Frank Herrmann Phillies Jersey . Cain departed in the fourth inning of a 10-5 loss to the Pirates on Thursday. X-rays on Cains bruised forearm were negative. He was hit when Sanchez led off the fourth with a groundout. Carlos Ruiz Jersey . -- Stanley Johnson scored all 18 of his points in the second half, T.ASHBURN, Va. -- DeSean Jackson wore a white visor instead of a helmet to practice. He sat on the stationary bicycle while his Washington Redskins teammates were stretching. Instead of pedaling, he slowly worked the handlebars back and forth, keeping the muscles loose in his sprained left shoulder. This is the long-anticipated "return to Philly" week for Jackson, his chance to show the Philadelphia Eagles they were woefully mistaken when they suddenly released him in late March with barely a word of explanation. "Obviously its going to be a huge game for myself," Jackson said, "and something I always looked forward to ever since everything went down the way it went down." But fate has a way of complicating such tidy story lines. Jackson fell on his shoulder and sprained the AC joint in the first quarter of Sundays win over the Jacksonville Jaguars. Hes determined to play -- he said Wednesday "I dont plan on missing this game" -- but he will need to be a quick healer if hes to face the Eagles this weekend. "Playing a team that Ive been traded from, released from, I kind of know how that feels," cornerback DeAngelo Hall said. "I know hes going to be juiced up. Hes trying to get back out there on that field as quick as possible." Jackson didnt practice Wednesday or Thursday, so its hard to get a handle on his status for Sunday. Much will depend on whether he can regain the full range of motion with his shoulder, and whether he can stand the pain if he gets hit. "Were going to push him a little bit more tomorrow, to see where hes at," coach Jay Gruden said. Players face former teams all the time, but Jacksons circumstance is more curious than most. He caught 82 passes for 1,332 yards last season in the first year of coach Chip Kellys high-paced offence, but the Eagles tried to trade him and then simply released him. Asked this week why he let Jackson go, Kelly stuck to the "just going in a ddifferent direction" company line and suggested that Jackson (5-foot-10, 178 pounds) was too small. Steve Carlton Phillies Jersey. "Yeah, just trying to build the overall team in terms of what we were looking for offensively and how we wanted to get bigger at the wideout spot," Kelly said, "and thats what we did." Jacksons release coincided with stories about off-the-field problems, and he released at statement at the time denying that he was a member of a gang. Kelly said this week that off-field issues had "zero" influence on the teams decision, and Jackson tried to make it sound as if he doesnt care anymore. "They made the decision. They moved on. I moved on," Jackson said. "Im just blessed to have a second opportunity to play here in Washington, and, you know, its not about them anymore. Its about what were doing over here." Less than a week after getting cut, Jackson was snapped up by the Redskins and given a three-year, $24 million contract with $16 million guaranteed. Hes kept a relatively low profile so far in Washington, with barely a whiff of trouble. "As far as anything you do in life, being in the NFL and being in the position that Im at in my career, regardless of what it is, you kind of have to overanalyze anything you do," Jackson said. "Being in the NFL, its like youre under a microscope and everything you do is being looked at. Being able to come here to Washington and play for the Redskins, since Day 1, since I stepped in here with this organization, I was just myself. I didnt really change. They accepted me for who I was." Philly fans are well-known for their hostility. Jackson, if he plays, is ready for whatever they dish out. "I felt I put it on the line for them when I played there, and (I know) what Ive done to help that organization win games," he said. "As far as if they congratulate me or boo me or whatever the case may be, Im ready for whatever it is." Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
