The roster changes have been constant and continuous since late last year, but even with their 46-man roster set for the start of the season, the banged-up Bombers will be kicking off Week 1 with a handful of fresh faces and back-ups in the starting lineup.Perhaps already annoyed by the attention to his left elbow ahead of the Super Bowl, Seattle Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman used a quip to answer one reporters question about that joints range of motion.If I had to slap my brother, Sherman replied, Id be able to do it.Seattles other All-Pro defensive back, safety Earl Thomas, is dealing with a bum shoulder and not only missed practices but also avoided the media, which is one way to avoid the question that so often becomes a big part of the buildup to the big game: How hurt are you?Ever since Sherman was injured in the NFC championship game, he has maintained he expects to play against the New England Patriots on Feb. 1. Hes been practicing and called the elbow a little sore, but not too bad.Thomas status is less certain.Whenever either is near a microphone or notepad over the next week, updates will be sought.While the NFLs investigation of the underinflated footballs used by the Patriots in the AFC championship game has been getting a ton of attention, there will be room for other topics. Fans of both teams want to know about injuries, as does anyone planning to place a wager on Super Sundays outcome.Over the years, key injuries to key players — including a couple of guys still with the Patriots — have been breathlessly charted in the days before kickoff.Heres a look at some famous examples, including a few involving Super Bowl MVPs:ROB GRONKOWSKI, PATRIOTS, 2012: After catching 17 touchdown passes, a record for a tight end, he sprained his left ankle in the AFC title game. The appetite for information was not helped by New England coach Bill Belichicks general reluctance to provide details on injuries. A Buffalo TV station cited Gronkowskis father as saying Rob would be fine. The only reason its getting so blown up is because its the Super Bowl, Gronk said at Media Day. THE GAME: He had only two catches for 26 yards in New Englands 21-17 loss to the New York Giants; a desperation heave on the final play fell just out of a lunging Gronkowskis reach.TOM BRADY, PATRIOTS, 2002: In his first season as an NFL starting quarterback, Brady sprained his left ankle in the AFC cchampionship game.

. It wasnt until the Wednesday before the Super Bowl that Belichick announced the youngster would start over Drew Bledsoe. Belichick even went so far as to ask a pool reporter not to identify who took the most snaps at QB in practice. THE GAME: Brady was voted MVP. He went 16 for 27 for just 145 yards but didnt throw an interception and led the drive to the winning field goal in New Englands 20-17 victory over the St. Louis Rams.EMMITT SMITH, COWBOYS, 1994: The leagues career leading rusher separated his right shoulder in the last game of the regular season; he wound up having off-season surgery. After the NFC title game, Smith was asked about his shoulder, and he joked that Dallas coach Jimmy Johnson said its healed, so I guess its healed. THE GAME: Smith was voted MVP. He ran for 132 yards and two second-half touchdowns in the Cowboys 30-13 victory over the Buffalo Bills.JERRY RICE, 49ERS, 1989: The man with by far the most yards receiving in NFL history sprained his right ankle during practice the Monday before the Super Bowl. After he showed up for interviews the next day with that ankle taped, folks starting discussion whether someone such as Mike Wilson would be able to fill in capably. THE GAME: Rice was voted MVP. He had 11 catches for 215 yards and one TD, and had three grabs for 51 yards on the winning drive in a 20-16 victory over the Cincinnati Bengals.DON MAYNARD, JETS, 1969: Maynard — like Smith and Rice, a member of the Pro Football Hall of Fame — injured his hamstring in the AFL championship game. But it was, of course, a different era, without Twitter and 24-hour TV channels. According to lore, the Jets Super Bowl opponent didnt even know Maynard was hurt. THE GAME: Maynard was used as a decoy and wound up with zero catches, but Joe Namath and the Jets beat the NFLs Baltimore Colts 16-7.___AP Pro Football Writer Barry Wilner and AP Sports Writers Tim Booth and Jimmy Golen contributed to this report.___Follow Howard Fendrich on Twitter at http://twitter.com/HowardFendrich___Online:AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and AP NFL Twitter feed: http://twitter.com/AP_NFL China NFL Jerseys Cheap Nike NFL Jerseys NFL Jerseys Cheap Wholesale NFL Jerseys Cheap Basketball Jerseys Online Stitched Hockey Jerseys Wholesale Baseball Jerseys Football Jerseys Outlet College Jerseys For Sale Cheap MLB Jerseys Wholesale Soccer Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys For Sale Wholesale NFL Jerseys
