first_imgJeudy’s two drops stick out as 1st-round receivers stumble If he makes the play, Denver has a chance to salt away the victory or at the very least kick a field goal. Instead, Denver punted and Tennessee went down and won it on a field goal with 17 seconds left.“I felt like I failed my team on those two plays,” Jeudy said Wednesday. “Me learning from that, just going out here and practicing and really focus on catching the ball and focus on the little details of catching the ball is really going to help me. “Those two drops will probably help me on not dropping passes for the whole season.”The Broncos are sticking by their usually sticky-fingered rookie.“That’s not Jerry Jeudy,” quarterback Drew Lock said when addressing the pair of dropped throws. Associated Press Henry Ruggs III, the only pass catcher taken ahead of Jeudy, at No. 12, had five receptions for 55 yards in his Raiders debut.The other first-rounders all had rather pedestrian debuts, too.—CeeDee Lamb (17th, Cowboys) had five grabs for 59 yards.—Jalen Raegor (21st, Eagles) had one catch for 55 yards.—Justin Jefferson (22nd, Vikings) had two receptions for 26 yards. September 16, 2020 “Jerry has good hands,” coach Vic Fangio agreed.When asked what he’ll remember most about his professional debut, one in which he caught four passes for 56 yards, Jeudy said, “the two drops.”What Lock doesn’t want is for Jeudy to harp on it any more than he already has. Lock, for one, won’t keep bringing it up.“He apologized. He was upset and hurt. It’s like missing layups in basketball. You miss a couple and it’s not going to happen again,” Lock said. “You don’t go address a guy about missing layups. It’s not a thing you do and that’s not a thing that we will overly address with Jerry.”Jeudy said it wasn’t a case of the butterflies.center_img Share This StoryFacebookTwitteremailPrintLinkedinRedditENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) — First-round draft pick Jerry Jeudy is a man of few words and even fewer miscues. After dropping a pair of passes in his NFL debut, the normally sure-handed receiver from Alabama tweeted, “Failure is growth.”Jeudy, the 15th overall selection in the NFL draft, took his eyes off the ball and turned upfield, dropping a wide-open pass on third down that squelched Denver’s opening second-half drive against Tennessee on Monday night.An even costlier drop came on first down in Titans territory in the fourth quarter with the Broncos running their four-minute offense while clinging to a 14-13 lead. “It just seemed worse because it was my first game,” he said. “Those two dropped passes made it seem like I was nervous. That wasn’t the case. I was just not concentrating on the ball, trying to make a play after the catch.“Other than those two drops, I had a good day,” Jeudy added. “I was getting open, getting separation.”Jeudy wasn’t alone in his sputtering start in the pros after a stellar college career.The only rookie receiver to score in Week 1 was Jacksonville’s Laviska Shenault, who had three catches for 37 yards. The 42nd overall pick, Shenault was one of 13 wide receivers selected in the first two rounds of the NFL draft. Notes: Sutton returned to practice Wednesday on a limited basis, and rookie WR K.J. Hamler (hamstring) was a full participant. Sitting out were: ILB Mark Barron (hamstring), RB Phillip Lindsay (turf toe) and CB A.J. Bouye, whom the Broncos placed on IR Wednesday along with ILB Von Miller (ankle). ___Follow Arnie Melendrez Stapleton on Twitter: http://twitter.com/arniestapleton___More AP NFL: https://apnews.com/NFL and https://twitter.com/AP_NFL —Brandon Aiyuk (25th, 49ers), missed San Francisco’s opener (hamstring).The rookie receivers seemed to pay the price for the league’s lack of a regular offseason because of the coronavirus pandemic that forced teams to do work remotely and scuttled the preseason. Their timing with quarterbacks just wasn’t what it could have been in a normal year.In addition to Jeudy’s pair of drops in Denver, Lock overthrew a veteran tight end and a veteran receiver for sure touchdowns in a two-point loss to Tennessee with top target Courtland Sutton sidelined with a shoulder injury.“You can use the convenient excuse that the timing (was affected by) the offseason, no preseason games,” Broncos coach Vic Fangio said. “Those are plays that we expect those guys to make.”last_img read more

first_imgDES MOINES — The State Board of Education took the first step Wednesday in approving changes to the rules governing the use of seclusion rooms in Iowa schools.There were concerns about three main issues when changes were first proposed, and the board voted down the first version of the rules in August to allow time for more public input without having to start from scratch.Board of Education lawyer, Nicole Proesch, says one key point changes the language that tells teachers when they should act to put a student in a seclusion room.  “People said you have to get rid of the term serious physical injury. When you look at criminal code and when you look at IDEA, the definition for serious physical injury was loss of use of body part, dismemberment, disfigurement or possible death,” Proesch says.Administrators told Proesch they were worried the language would keep teachers and staff from taking action. “Even when they should, because they’re going to say ‘I’m not sure if what that student is going to do is going to cause serious injury. I am going to bow out and I’m not going to step in,” Proesch says. She says they looked at several definitions and settled on using bodily injury.Proesch says they talked with administrators and education groups about the change. “And they felt more comfortable with that because they felt that it would give teachers more room to use their judgment,” Proesch says, “And not have to second-guess whether it was going to result in some serious injury causing death.”Nicole Proesch and David Tilley present the rule changes.The rule for notifying parents is changed from the current requirement that parents are notified within ten minutes to let them know within an hour after the incident is over. Ed Department deputy director, David Tilley says teachers felt that ten minute rule created some issues. “Now the time clock starts once the issue is resolved and under control,” Tilley says. “That eliminated a lot of the educators worry that you’re going to put me in a position between maintaining and helping this kid — versus going and notifying a parent.”Proesch says parents said they could not always be reached at work during the day and that created issues. The rule also says parents must be notified no later than the end of the school day.  “The original rules as they currently sit are end of school day. So, if we don’t change anything it is the end of the day. Some administrators came to us and said to leave it as it is. We’ve actually up the ante by saying an hour after it has ended,” Proesch says.The last big change that was a point of concern in the public hearings and input was the size and type of rooms. Proesch says administrators felt two years currently given to make changes is not enough. “That’s why we extended that out, and then we also changed the room size a little bit, modified it down just so that A: it would make it a little bit easier for some schools that have rooms already. And we were also taking into consideration about some of the comments we received about how big it really needs to be and what works,” according to Proesch.The changes on room size were included to prevent the seclusion rooms from simply being a broom closet.  “We’ve had incidents where that has occurred — and those ere the incidents that we are trying to prevent,” Proesch says. “When we look at the rules and we look at things in here that says it has to comply with heating, ventilation, lighting, accessibility, dimensions, it has to be habitable. It shouldn’t be a utility closet that has chemicals sitting on the floor.”Tilley says the hope is that they rooms never have to be used. “The goal of crisis intervention is de-escalation and the opportunity for kids to get themselves back together,” according to Tilley. “These should if they’re used therapeutically — should be used as little as possible, as short a time as possible.”Tilley says the total package of rules is intended to help ensure that happens in a safe manner. “Even those these were the three sticking points — it’s our perspective that there is a significant set of other changes that were made in these rules — about definitions, about training, about when seclusion and restraints should not be used,”Tilley says.The rules now go out for more comment with the first public hearing set for January 7th from 11 a.m. until 1 p.m. in the board room of the Board of Education office in Des Moines.Here are the proposed rules: Seclusion Room Changes PDFlast_img read more

first_imgThe grandfather of one of the young women killed in yesterday’s horrific car crash in Ballybofey has said she always wanted more from life.Kiara Baird (19) who was originally from Clondalkin, in Dublin died along with Maria Wallace (38) when they car in which they were traveling lost control on a bend on the Glenfin Road just before 4.30pm.Ms Wallace is believed to be a mother of three boys. Another man in the car is in Letterkenny University Hospital suffering form non life-threatening injuries.Today Kiara’s grandfather Declan paid tribute to her, as he came to terms with the shocking news in his Clondalkin home.He said Kiara had moved with her mother Tracy and her three siblings to Donegal around six years ago to make a better life for themselves because Tracy did not want to bring up her children in Dublin.He told the Irish Independent “She wanted her children to be safe. I reared all my family here in the city, and I wouldn’t change that, but times have changed a lot since then and Tracy didn’t want her children reared in the city,” said Declan. “There’s another daughter of mine in Kerry for the same reason,” he added.“Kiara was our first grandchild. The first of the next generation of 13 grandchildren. She was special because of that.“She was full of life and full of questions, and constantly wanted more from life. Kiara would still come down to Dublin a lot to go out with friends, and I would see her often. What happened is just awful,” he added.“I’m a youth worker myself, and I’ve known a lot of young people killed in car crashes as a result. I’ve been to too many funerals.“I don’t know what happened in the crash. I don’t want to be a person looking for any blame. All I know is Kiara is gone. All I know is we miss her,” Declan explained.
