GREEN BAY, Wis. --?Aaron Rodgers still needs some preseason work, according to one of his long-time coaches, and thats why the Packers quarterback is expected to make his summer debut Friday at the San Francisco 49ers.Rodgers said that this will be a one-shot deal for the preseason; hes not expecting to play in the finale at Kansas City.Rodgers hasnt played in either of the first two games, but Packers associate head coach Tom Clements said that even a two-time MVP quarterback, who is entering his 12th NFL season (and ninth as a starter), could use the work.The preseason is obviously different than practice, said Clements, who was Rodgerss quarterbacks coach from 2006 to 2011 before being promoted to offensive coordinator in 2012 and then to his current position last year. Things move fast, faster. Once the season starts, they move even faster. You get to the playoffs, and they move even faster. Regardless I think of how long youve been around, you need a little bit of work before the season starts.Packers coach Mike McCarthy wouldnt commit to anything specific for Rodgers.The goal is to obviously play Aaron and play our guys, McCarthy said before Tuesdays practice. But well evaluate todays practice and well have that meeting tomorrow.Rodgers said he will do anything McCarthy wants me to do in Fridays game.We havent talked about play time yet. Ill find out probably shortly before you guys find out. I think Im going to play. Im not sure how long he wants me to play. But itll be good to get out there and get some work with the guys, he said.Rodgers, 32, took his usual workload early in training camp but then shifted into a different role in advance of the preseason games. He worked more with the scout team offense, while McCarthy prepared backup quarterback Brett Hundley along with rookies Joe Callahan and Marquise Williams to play.This week, however, Rodgers was back at the helm with the No. 1 offense, which was the first sign he would play against the 49ers.Aaron has been very sharp in practice, Clements said. We havent discussed what the exact play time will be, but Im sure hell play. I anticipate that hell be sharp. But really you have to be moving around quicker than you do in practice. It tests your stamina a little bit more; you have to get used to that. You have to get used to -- get reacclimated to the speed of the game because as I said its different than practice. But at this point its like riding a bike: Youve been there, youve done it, you know how to do it and you just have to go in and practice it a little bit and get ready.Its not necessary for Rodgers as much as it is for the offense as a whole.What youre looking for any time you put him out there is just going to be how the other guys react, the new guys, [fullback Aaron] Ripkowski getting to play with him for the first time and extensively, said Packers quarterbacks coach Alex Van Pelt. Jared Cook, Ty Montgomery coming back now after missing time. Just for those guys to feel the stress of what its like to play and the expectations that come from the offense with him. Thats the kind of things he may not get stuff out of it but other guys definitely will feel it. Justin Patton Jersey .J. -- Marshawn Lynch said Thursday it will be good to get back to football after the Seattle quiet talking running back wrapped up his final mandatory media session of Super Bowl week. Timberwolves Jerseys Outlet . -- Josh Sterk scored once and set up two more as the Oshawa Generals edged the visiting Belleville Bulls 3-2 on Friday in Ontario Hockey League action. . Kozun faked to the forehand and beat Monsters starter, Calvin Pickard, pad side in the second round for the winner. Spencer Abbott also scored in the shootout for the Marlies (25-13-4). Youth Timberwolves Jerseys . Durant finished with 24 points and 13 rebounds, Jackson matched his career high with 23 points on 10-of-14 shooting and Lamb scored 12 points on 5-of-7 shooting, lifting the Thunder to a 94-88 win over San Antonio and snapping the Spurs 11-game winning streak. Jimmy Butler Jersey . McCarthy, a player who played some games in the second tier for Wigan at the start of this season, would go on to shine inside Evertons midfield, outplaying the man he was brought in to replace, on one of the grandest stages in English football. On Saturday, it was fitting that Manchester Uniteds most recent dagger into the chest was delivered by Frenchman Yohan Cabaye, a wonderfully gifted central midfielder who put on an outstanding effort for Newcastle at Old Trafford. CHICAGO -- All thats left for the Chicago Cubs to do is make history.The Cubs came home to Wrigley Field with a 3-2 lead over the Los Angeles Dodgers in the NL Championship Series and a chance Saturday night to end a more than seven-decade wait to return to the World Series.Were not going to run away from anything, manager Joe Maddon said. Its within our reach right now. But I do want us to go after it as though its, again, hate to say it, but Saturday. Lets just go play our Saturday game and see how it falls.For a franchise defined more by heartbreak and losing, this will be no ordinary Saturday. Then again, this has been no ordinary season.The Cubs led the majors with 103 wins and ran away with the NL Central title. They won more games than any Cubs team since 1910, and if they beat Clayton Kershaw and the Dodgers, theyll face Cleveland in their first World Series since 1945.That, of course, will put them on the verge of their first championship since 1908.But before they can think about that, they have to get to the World Series, and their first opportunity comes against one of the games most dominant pitchers in Kershaw. The Cubs will go with major league ERA leader Kyle Hendricks in Game 6.Game 7 would be on Sunday, if necessary.Weve won two games in a row before, said Los Angeles Adrian Gonzalez. Nothing says we cant do it Saturday and Sunday.The Cubs put themselves in this position by shaking off back-to-back shutout losses and combining to score 18 runs in the past two games.Jon Lester threw seven solid innings, Addison Russell continued his resurgence at the plate with a tiebreaking home run and the Cubs beat the Dodgers 8-4 on Thursday night.Russell has gone deep in back-to-back games and is 5 for 10 after going 1 for 24 to start the postseason. Anthony Rizzo is also connecting, with five hits and a homer over the past two games after going 2 for 26. Javier Baez continues to come through with big hits and making sensational plays at second base.Now, its up to Kershaw to cool off the Cubs.The three-time NL Cy Young Award winner is 2-0 with a 3.72 ERA in three starts and one relief appearance this postseason and has been erasingg a reputation for struggling in the playoffs.dddddddddddd He came through with two decent starts against Washington in the NLDS and closed out the series-clinching win.He was nothing short of spectacular against Chicago in Game 2, pitching two-hit ball over seven innings before Kenley Jansen closed out a 1-0 victory.Kershaw was ready to pitch Thursday on three days rest. Hell get five between starts instead, though he will be pitching for the fourth time in 12 days.Were down a game, but weve won on the road before, manager Dave Roberts said. Weve won two games before. And I think that for us its an isolated focus on Game 6. We get a rested Kersh. So with that, we feel good.But its the Cubs who are in position to move on.World War II had just ended the last time they won the pennant, and the World Series that year is remembered as much for a goat and a curse as it is for the Detroit Tigers winning in seven games.The Cubs angered Billy Goat Tavern owner Billy Sianis when they asked him to leave Game 4 because the odor of his pet goat Murphy was bothering fans. Sianis supposedly placed a curse on the franchise, and since then, its been mostly losing with a few close calls for the franchise.The Cubs had a 2-0 lead against San Diego in the 1984 NLCS, only to see the Padres win the final three games in that best-of-five series.Thirteen years ago, the Cubs returned home up 3-2 over the Marlins in the NLCS. And, well, fans still have nightmares over that one.Chicago was five outs from the World Series with Mark Prior on the mound only to see everything come apart.A fan named Steve Bartman reached up for Luis Castillos foul as Moises Alou leaned into the stands.The ball deflected off Bartmans hands. Alou went wild. Shortstop Alex Gonzalez later booted a potential inning-ending double play. Prior melted down on the mound.The Cubs lost that game, and they went on to drop the series finale even though they had Kerry Wood starting.Weve heard the history, but at the same time were trying to make history, Dexter Fowler said.
