The last of six Ohio State women’s lacrosse players hospitalized for a rare but potentially dangerous muscle disorder is set to be released from the hospital at noon Wednesday, Christopher Kaeding, the head team physician for OSU’s athletic department, told The Lantern in an email. OSU assistant director of athletic communication Alissa Clendenen was not sure whether the six athletes would play in the team’s next game, scheduled for Sunday, but she did say in an email, “once released, players are not expected to miss any time because of their condition.” On Friday, six OSU women’s lacrosse players were admitted to the Wexner Medical Center at OSU to be evaluated after showing symptoms of rhabdomyolysis, OSU assistant director of athletics communication Alissa Clendenen confirmed to The Lantern. Rhabdomyolysis, a muscle disorder that causes a breakdown of muscle fibers and releases a protein called myoglobin into the bloodstream, can cause kidney damage and in extreme cases, kidney failure. Trainers evaluated the team for symptoms after one athlete complained of not feeling well, according to the release. None has kidney damage, according to media reports. The names of the six players have not been released. In January 2011, 13 football players at the University of Iowa developed the disorder after overexertion during a squat-lifting workout. A report cleared coaches, players, physicians and trainers for wrongdoing but recommended the strenuous workout that contributed to the hospitalizations be dropped from training. All 13 players made full recoveries. The women’s lacrosse team did not have games this past weekend. They next play at Canisius in Buffalo, N.Y., Sunday at 1 p.m.

Rangers Football Club’s Jon Flanagan has thanked his teammates after he picked up a red card which reduced the team to nine men in their UEFA Europa League tie against FC Ufa.The Scottish club came into the tie with a 1-0 aggregate lead after winning the first leg at home at the Ibrox.Rangers got off to the best possible start at the Stadion Neftyanik when Ovie Ojaria, on loan from Liverpool, opened the scoring in the ninth minute.Ufa equalised in the 32nd minute when Dmitry Sysuev sprung the offside trap to beat goalkeeper Allan McGregor and while the Russian Premier League side were camped out in the Rangers half for the majority of the second half they could not find the two goals they needed to advance.2019/20 Europa League group stage draw in full Andrew Smyth – August 30, 2019 The 2019/20 Europa League group stages have been set, with the likes of Manchester United, Arsenal, AS Roma and Sevilla all in the mix.Rangers striker Morelos received two yellow cards within seconds of each other for kicking the ball away and dissent eight minutes before the break, while Flanagan, booked in the first half, was then dismissed after an aerial challenge left his opponent crumpled in a heap.The Russian club launched wave after wave of attacks on the Rangers goal but could not breach their defence and the Scottish side clung on until the final whistle.“We apologise to the fans and to our team mates — they have done incredibly well and have got us out of jail,” Flanagan, who joined the club on a free transfer in the close season, told RangersTV, as quoted by Reuters.“I’m personally disappointed at letting my team mates down, but the main aim here was to come and get to the group stages.”
Massimiliano Allegri believes Juventus defeating Parma 2-1 was “a deserved victory, but we have a lot more work to do.”“The lads did very well. Parma is a difficult place to play and we’d only won one of our last five visits,” the Coach told DAZN via Football Italia.“Parma are fighting to secure safety, are very organised and dangerous on the counter, but they ran out of steam towards the end. It’s a deserved victory, but we have a lot more work to do.“We should’ve been more patient and not so hasty, as it played into Parma’s hands in the first half.”Reacting about Cristiano Ronaldo who has not yet broken his Serie A duck as he missed a good opportunity at the Stadio Tardini, Allegri said:Juventus confirm Mario Mandzukic could leave this month Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Sporting director Fabio Paratici confirmed reports that Mario Mandzukic could leave Juventus for a move to an unnamed Qatari team.“There are different difficulties a striker has to deal with in Serie A, but he had a good game overall. I am happy with what he’s doing and the break for international duty will help all of us to be sharper.“Mandzukic has always been generous, but even I didn’t expect him to be in such good shape after the World Cup. Paulo Dybala is slowly finding his form too and did well when he came on.“I need everyone going forward, such as Medhi Benatia, Andrea Barzagli and Daniele Rugani, so the more fresh legs and sharp minds we’ve got, the better.”

Find out how striker Gonzalo Higuain finally scored his first two Premier League goals for Chelsea against Huddersfield Town at Stamford Bridge.After not having the most ideal debut for Chelsea FC this past week at Bournemouth, Argentine striker Gonzalo Higuain finally had his chance to prove why Maurizio Sarri brought him from Italian football.‘Pipita’ needed a more relaxed environment in order to get that confidence he required in order to start scoring goals for his new club, this version of the Blues was nothing like the one we saw at Vitality Stadium but they were playing against bottomers Huddersfield Town.This match would be very easy for Gonzalo Higuain to finally get his dream debut at Stamford Bridge, Sarri also decided to place Eden Hazard back on his left-winger position and the modification also paid off in the final result.The first half started with the Blues going all in for the first goal, it took the Blues over fifteen to find the right opportunity for Gonzalo Higuain’s killer instinct.The Argentine had already tried to land a few shots on target with no luck, but Kante was able to find him to get that first goal on the 16th minute of the match with a potent right-footed shot with practically no angle to take [email protected]_Higuain 🙌 🙌 #CHEHUD pic.twitter.com/SwtktcAOEl— Chelsea FC (@ChelseaFC) February 2, 2019Eden Hazard scored the second goal just before half-time after the Blues got awarded a penalty, the Belgian winger was very active throughout the whole first half and manager Maurizio Sarri seemed satisfied with the overall performance thus far.Ross Barkley’s inclusion in the starting eleven was also a great idea from the manager, the English player was a perfect link between N’Golo Kante’s defensive tasks and Gonzalo Higuain’s danger area.This also gave Hazard more freedom to play on his preferred left flank without having to move to the middle because Ross had that space covered very well, the Belgian actually received a clinical assist from Barkley well into the second half and Eden moved past the goalkeeper with a beautiful dribble that gave him the space to score that third Chelsea goal.With the Blues’ number ’10’ already having a brace, Gonzalo Higuain was eager to get another goal that could give him even more confidence in a game that was already decided for Maurizio Sarri’s squad.This moment came only a few minutes after Hazard’s second goal, and it was something we weren’t ready for.Liverpool legend Nicol slams Harry Maguire’s Man United form Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Steve Nicol believes Harry Maguire has made some “horrendous mistakes” recently, and has failed to find his best form since joining Manchester United.⚽️⚽️ Double trouble! ⚽️⚽️ pic.twitter.com/4LJpIbtvjV— Chelsea FC (@ChelseaFC) February 2, 2019Turns out that Gonzalo Higuain found a perfect partner in N’Golo Kante, the French midfielder provided him with a second assist just outside the box that ‘Pipita’ turned into pure magic.A long-range curler straight to the top corner left Higuain’s right foot, a perfect way for him to get his dream debut as a Chelsea player at Stamford Bridge.Manager Maurizio Sarri has a very special understanding of this player, they proved it during the Napoli days and it appears they might do it again at Chelsea this season.The final minutes were also good enough for one last goal for the Blues, Willian was slick enough to see David Luiz moving closer to him during a corner-kick and assisted his compatriot in order to get that final goal through a well-placed header.With this 5-0 result, Chelsea can finally breathe a little bit and salvage their Top Four position regardless of how Arsenal does on Sunday vs Manchester City.The heated discussion Maurizio Sarri had with the players after the Bournemouth defeat seems to have paid off, but the Blues still have to play against a more competitive squad and see if they really are back to form.🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟#CHEHUD— Chelsea FC (@ChelseaFC) February 2, 2019How many goals will Gonzalo Higuain score for Chelsea this season?
