    KRASNAYA POLYANA, Russia -- Canada has its first gold medal at the Sochi Paralympic Winter Games. Virgil van Dijk Jersey . Cross-country skier Brian McKeever won the mens visually impaired 20-kilometre race on Monday. The 34-year-old from Canmore, Alta., finished in a time of 52 minutes 37.1 seconds for his eighth career Paralympic gold medal. Russias Stanislav Chokhlaev was second, 1:16.0 back, while Swedens Zebastian Modin finish third, 4:33.3 off the pace. McKeever won three gold medals at the Vancouver Paralympics four years ago and has two more races to go at the Sochi Games. Simon Mignolet Jersey .500. The Jets have now won nine of their last 11, and five of their last six road games. With the win they moved to within two points of Vancouver in the west, the Canucks holding down the eighth spot. Vancouver lost in Boston, while the other big game saw Dallas win in Phoenix. Jordan Henderson Jersey . And on Sunday against the Houston Astros they were pleased to see his work finally pay off with his first win since May 24.GREEN BAY, Wis. -- The Green Bay Packers know what life is like without Clay Matthews, and theyre bracing themselves again for being without their four-time Pro Bowl outside linebacker for an extended time after Matthews broke his right thumb during Sundays 22-9 victory over the Detroit Lions at Lambeau Field. Packers coach Mike McCarthy said in his usual day-after-the-game news conference Monday afternoon that Matthews was at a doctors appointment being examined and that he was unsure how long his star defensive player would be sidelined. "All the informations not in yet," McCarthy said. "I really dont have anything to announce there." Matthews, who left the Packers pre-bye loss at Cincinnati on Sept. 22 with a hamstring injury he suffered while forcing his second fumble of the game on a hit on quarterback Andy Dalton, injured his thumb on the final play of the third quarter, when he came unblocked and sacked Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford for a 12-yard loss. "I told him hes going to have to stop sacking the quarterback because the last two weeks, hes injured himself sacking the quarterback," defensive co-ordinator Dom Capers said jokingly. Matthews grabbed for Stafford with his right hand and then hit the hand on the ground and he finished the play. Afterward, Matthews could be seen looking at his hand before coming off the field, and when he came to the Packers sideline, he reached across his face to unsnap his chinstrap on the right side of this helmet with his left hand. He was then taken to the locker room for x-rays by the Packers medical staff. Assuming Matthews at least misses next Sundays game at defending Super Bowl-champion Baltimore, it would mark the fourth straight year that Matthews will have been sidelined for at least one game. After playing all 16 games as a rookie in 2009, when he missed most of training camp with a hamstring injury, Matthews missed one game in 2010 wiith a hamstring injury. Dejan Lovren Liverpool Jersey. In 2011, he was a healthy inactive for the meaningless regular-season finale against Detroit after the Packers had locked up home-field advantage for the playoffs, but he missed four games last season with a hamstring injury before returning from the layoff and recording seven sacks in the next five games (including playoffs). Without Matthews, who had five tackles and a sack in Sundays game, the Packers played Mike Neal and Nick Perry as their outside linebackers. Neal, a converted defensive end, finished with a sack and six tackles; Perry, the teams first-round pick last year whose season ended after six games because of wrist surgery, finished with two sacks and five tackles; Neal had one sack and six tackles. "The one encouraging thing to me is, I think Mike Neal has made really good strides. I think you saw him play his best game yesterday, I think you saw Nick Perry play his best game yesterday," Capers said. And thats the nature of this business. "Not knowing (Matthews) status and whats going to go on there, we need for Mike Neal and Nick Perry to be ready to play next week the way they played this week. Because they played their best football this week." Meanwhile, the Packers apparently arent overly concerned about the hamstring injury suffered by starting inside linebacker Brad Jones. After Jones left Sundays game with the injury, he was replaced by backup Robert Francois, who suffered a ruptured Achilles tendon later in the game. Francois was placed on season-ending injured reserve Monday, but rather than replacing him with another inside linebacker, the Packers instead called up cornerback James Nixon from the practice squad. That leaves them with three other inside linebackers besides Jones - fellow starter A.J. Hawk, veteran backup Jamari Lattimore and rookie seventh-round pick Sam Barrington.Cheap Ducks Jerseys Cheap Coyotes Jerseys Cheap Bruins Jerseys Cheap Sabres Jerseys Cheap Flames Jerseys Cheap Hurricanes Jerseys Cheap Blackhawks JerseysCheap Avalanche Jerseys Cheap Blue Jackets Jerseys Cheap Stars Jerseys Cheap Red Wings Jerseys Cheap Oilers Jerseys Cheap Florida Panthers Jerseys Cheap Los Angeles Kings Jerseys Cheap Wild Jerseys ' ' '
