CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Thomas Davis said the Carolina Panthers game Sunday against the Minnesota Vikings should absolutely be played as scheduled, even with the city being under a state of emergency due to violent protests over a recent police shooting.The All-Pro linebacker said football has a unique way of bringing people together and believes the game is something the community needs.If you take this game away I think it is going to just continue to add to the stress and add to what is already going on in a negative way, Davis said Thursday.Gov. Pat McCrory declared a state of emergency in Charlotte on Wednesday night and has sent the National Guard and state troopers in to help restore peace after two nights of looting and rioting .The NFL said it plans are for the game to be played as scheduled, although it will continue to monitor the ongoing violent protests that have gripped Charlotte.Panthers president Danny Morrison said in a statement Thursday that the team is in contact with government officials, the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department and the NFL. We are continuing to monitor events as we prepare for Sundays home game.Davis isnt alone in his belief that the game should be played.Eight Carolina players questioned and coach Ron Rivera all said they believe the game should go on, although tight end Greg Olsen said his family may be more cautious on Sunday.My wife usually takes the kids uptown and they tailgate with family and friends, but we said maybe this week we should just come to the game, park in our lot and go up to your seats and get settled in, Olsen said. Is it worth moseying around in a town that is in such a heightened state of chaos?Vikings cornerback Captain Munnerlyn, who played five seasons for the Panthers and still owns a home in Charlotte, said Thursday hes a little nervous about coming home for the game.Right now I would be. Its definitely out of control, Munnerlyn said. I might just go check on my house and head back to the hotel. Right now Id definitely be worried. Its kind of chaos down there right now and I hope this clears up soon.Vikings coach Mike Zimmer said he has not paid attention to reports of the unrest in Charlotte and has been focused solely on game planning for matchup against the Panthers.It has been impossible for the Panthers to ignore the events.What began as a peaceful protest Wednesday night led to more rioting and looting downtown with one person shot and four police officers injured. The protests began after an African-American police officer shot and killed 43-year-old Keith Scott on Tuesday.What is going on in Charlotte right now is not the way to solve this problem, said Davis, who is African-American. When you go out and loot and riot, you stand a chance of more people getting injured and getting hurt -- civilians and police. Its not the way to go about things.Davis, the 2014 Walter Payton Man of the Year, has been with the Panthers for 12 seasons and is one of the most endeared players in the community.He said seeing the images on TV the last two nights have caused him great pain.I had to explain to my boys that not all cops are bad cops, just like cops out there have to realize that not all African-American males are hoodlums and going out there and deliberately getting into trouble, Davis said. ... Police are here to protect and serve us, but at the same time someone has to be held accountable for what is going on.At least one Carolina player suggested he was considering joining Colin Kaepernicks cause and staging a silent protest by kneeling for the national anthem before the game.Safety Tre Boston, who has been outspoken about his thoughts on the police shooting on Twitter, said its something he will decide on in the coming days. He said he wants to talk to people and do more research before making a decision.You have to find a way you are not disrespecting people and that everybody understands where we are coming from, but at the same time you want to get your message across, Boston said. And sometimes it can feel disrespectful when you send your message across and somebody doesnt believe in it. Well see.Davis said instead of just talking about the issue, he suggested athletes should do more.What we can do is get out in our community and connect with not only the people that we serve and work with in the community, but also really connect with the police officers and bridge the gap and create an ongoing relationship to help promote change, Davis said.---AP Sports Writer Jon Krawczynski in Minneapolis contributed to this report.---AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and www.twitter.com/AP-NFL Cheap NHL Jerseys Canada .

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- The NFL says the former wife of suspended New York Giants placekicker Josh Brown turned down multiple requests to speak to the league about her allegations of being the victim of repeated domestic violence.In a statement issued Friday, the league said that it conducted a 10-month investigation into the circumstances surrounding the arrest of Brown in May 2015 in Woodinville, Wash., on a fourth-degree domestic violence charge.In the course of the investigation, the league said its investigators became aware that Browns wife had filed a statement with the county court alleging previous altercations between the spouses.Despite multiple attempts to speak with her about this incident and her previous statements, she declined to speak with us, the league said. We understand that there are many reasons that might have affected her decision not to speak with us, but we were limited in our ability to investigate these allegations.The NFL added that local law enforcement officers also declined to provide information on the case and previous allegations.Brown, who was suspended by the league for the opening game of the regular season, admitted Thursday that he grabbed his wifes wrist in the incident that led to his arrest. He called it a momentary thing.The King County prosecutors office investigated the case and did not file a charge, saying there was insufficient evidence.After its investigation, the NFL said it had insufficient informattion to corroborate prior allegations.ddddddddddddIn addition, no criminal charges were brought forward regarding the incident in question or prior allegations, the league said.The NFL therefore made a decision based on the evidentiary findings around this one incident as provided to us by the District Attorney.The league said it suspended Brown for a game because he had violated the personal conduct policy.We did so based on the evidence of this one incident as presented in the police report, Mr. Brown and his wifes statements to police that evening, and his statements in interviews with the NFL, the league said Friday.The personal conduct policy allows for discipline to be imposed even when criminal charges are not presented. It also allows the league to consider both aggravating and mitigating factors regarding discipline for domestic violence.After reviewing the evidence in this one incident, we imposed a one-game suspension for violation of the personal conduct policy, the league said.Browns appeal of the decision was turned down and the league announced his suspension on Wednesday.The 37-year-old will be allowed to practice with the Giants in training camp, but he will be suspended for the opening week, when the Giants are in Dallas.---AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and AP NFL Twitter feed: http://twitter.com/AP-NFL Cheap Throwback Baseball Detroit Tigers Jerseys Cheap Throwback Baseball Colorado Rockies Jerseys Cheap Throwback Baseball Houston Astros Jerseys Cheap Throwback Baseball Kansas City Royals Jerseys Cheap Throwback Baseball Los Angeles Angels Jerseys Cheap Throwback Baseball Los Angeles Dodgers Jerseys Cheap Throwback Baseball Miami Marlins Jerseys Cheap Throwback Baseball Milwaukee Brewers Jerseys Cheap Throwback Baseball Minnesota Twins Jerseys Cheap Throwback Baseball New York Mets Jerseys Cheap Throwback Baseball New York Yankees Jerseys Cheap Throwback Baseball Oakland Athletics Jerseys Cheap Throwback Baseball Philadelphia Phillies Jerseys Cheap Throwback Baseball Pittsburgh Pirates Jerseys Cheap Throwback Baseball San Diego Padres Jerseys Cheap Throwback Baseball San Francisco Giants Jerseys Cheap Throwback Baseball Seattle Mariners Jerseys Cheap Throwback Baseball St. Louis Cardinals Jerseys Cheap Throwback Baseball Tampa Bay Rays Jerseys Cheap Throwback Baseball Texas Rangers Jerseys Cheap Throwback Baseball Toronto Blue Jays Jerseys Cheap Throwback Baseball Washington Nationals Jerseys ' ' '
