PHOENIX - The NFL is taking its extra-point experiment to the Pro Bowl. Jason Kasdorf Jersey .The league has looked into making point-after kicks more difficult as kickers have become almost automatic from the short distance. The NFL moved kickers back for extra-point tries during the preseason and will try it again during Sundays Pro Bowl at University of Phoenix Stadium, this time with the added difficulty of trying to kick through narrower uprights.The uprights will be at the standard 18.6 feet for field goal attempts, but will be squeezed down to 14 feet on extra points. The kick also will be moved back from the 2-yard line to the 15, essentially making it a 33 1/2-yard field goal.Were talking about the best of the best kickers, so were bringing that (the kick) back after a touchdown, NFL executive vice-president of football operations Troy Vincent said during a Pro Bowl news conference Tuesday.These guys are almost perfect during the regular season, but this will allow us to see just how skilled the kicker position has become.Extra points have become nearly a forgone conclusion for kickers over the years, prompting the NFL to at least look at adding degrees of difficulty.During the 2014 season, NFL kickers missed only eight of 1,235 PAT attempts (99.3 per cent). Kickers made 99.6 per cent of their kicks last season.Vincent said the NFL also will add video elements from the sidelines during the Pro Bowl, though he did not elaborate.The Pro Bowl is being played in the same city as the Super Bowl for the second time.The game was played in Miami in 2010 before returning to Hawaii the past three years.Captains will select the teams during the Pro Bowl draft Wednesday night.___AP NFL website: http://www.pro32.ap.org and http://www.twitter.com/AP_NFL Johan Larsson Jersey . Anaheim Ducks Reassign D Colby Robak to Norfolk Admirals (AHL). - Team Website D Eric Brewer (foot) removed from injured reserve. Pierre Turgeon Jersey .S. Basketball Writers Association. McDermott, who finished his career at Creighton as college basketballs fifth-leading scorer, accepted the honour from Hall of Famer Oscar Robertson at AT&T Stadium, site of the Final Four. http://www.officialsabreshockeyauthentic...lk-jersey/ .com) - Driphus Jackson had three touchdown passes, including two in a 19-second span in the opening quarter, to guide Rice to a 30-6 rout of Fresno State at the Hawaii Bowl.MIAMI - Jose Fernandez walked into the Miami Marlins clubhouse four hours before game time and extended his left arm to shake hands with teammates. His right arm rested in a sling and was encased in a cast from above the elbow to his hand. "Im excited," Fernandez said with a grin. "Im throwing a bullpen tomorrow lefty." That would be the only way last seasons NL Rookie of the Year would be able to pitch anytime soon. Fernandez underwent Tommy John surgery on his throwing elbow Friday, and he is expected to be out 12 to 18 months. He rejoined the Marlins on Tuesday for the start of their six-game homestand, but only as a spectator. He also spoke to reporters for the first time since the operation. Fernandez said he felt a pinch in his elbow during a start against the Dodgers on May 4, and was at less than 100 per cent in his final start May 9 at San Diego. He said he didnt tell anyone because missing a start wasnt an appealing option. "I said, I cant do this to my team. Were in first place. I cant let them down right now," Fernandez said. "Its nobodys fault. It happened. Its sad it did. I dont blame anybody, and I dont regret not saying anything. That was my call. Probably it wasnt the smartest thing, but this is my team, and I give my life for my team." An attorney for Fernandez released a statement last week saying the pitcher changed his delivery for his final start, but Fernandez said it was nothing his team or manager could detect. "I was trying not to let anybody see that I was in a little pain,"t; he said. Chad Johnson Jersey. Fernandez said the ligament came off the bone, leaving him no choice but to undergo surgery. At the time he led the majors in strikeouts, and was 4-2 with a 2.44 ERA. "It was sad not because I got hurt, but because I felt like I let my team down," he said. "That was the tough part. I felt bad, but I can take care of this and be back and strong." Tuesday would have been Fernandezs day to pitch as the Marlins opened a series against the Phillies. "Hes going to be out a long time, but we know hes on the road to recovery," manager Mike Redmond said. "We know a lot of guys come back and either pitch the same or better. Its tough to see him in the sling, but we know hes going to be back." Fernandez underwent surgery in Los Angeles. He plans to return there next week to have his cast and stitches removed, before the long rehabilitation process begins. The Cuban defector said hes eager to get started. "To me this is just a little bump in the road," he said. "Ive been through a lot more stuff, tougher things. This is just something Ive got to learn from." At age 21, Fernandez has a 16-8 record with a 2.25 ERA in 36 career starts. Does he anticipate hell be able to pitch as well when he returns? "I hope better," he said. "Im going to be out for a year. Id better learn a lot of things and get a lot stronger. I cant wait to get back on the mound. Its going to be a special day. Its far away, but we have to take the little steps to get there."
