Zimmer is planning his return to the Vikings for June 4, per Matthew Coller of 1500 ESPN. The Illinois native took over as Minnesota's head coach in 2014. He's accumulated a 26-22 record over the past three seasons, including an 8-8 mark during the 2016 campaign. The team has qualified for the postseason once during his tenure (2015), but lost to the Seattle Seahawks in its first playoff game. He previously served as a defensive coordinator for the Dallas Cowboys , Atlanta Falcons and Cincinnati Bengals . He was also part of the Cowboys' coaching staff when the team defeated the Pittsburgh Steelers in Super Bowl XXX at the end of the 1995-96 NFL season. Mike Priefer, the Vikings' special teams coordinator, served as interim head coach in Week 13 last year while Zimmer was away due to the eye problems.

With just two teams still standing, it's time to look seriously at which players are making cases for themselves as the most valuable player in the 2017 Stanley Cup playoffs. The Conn Smythe Trophy will be awarded to that MVP at the end of the Finaljust before the Stanley Cup is handed out. I took a look at possible candidates in this article in early May, when eight teams were still in the mix. Not surprisingly, the landscape has changed considerably since then. With most of the early front-runners now eliminated from postseason contention, only one player from that list is still in the mix. The Pittsburgh Penguins' early standout, Marc-Andre Fleury, has also lost his inside track on the trophy after Matt Murray was back in net for Game 3 of the Eastern Conference Final against the Ottawa Senators. If the now-healthy Murray finishes out the playoffs, neither Penguins netminder would likely have enough of a body of work to merit serious Conn Smythe consideration.

That he ended up a war hero was in no small measure a public relations victory, substantially aided by those two ex-girlfriends. Get your history fix in one place: sign up for the weekly TIME History newsletter While overseas, Jack had kept up correspondence with Inga and Frances both. To Inga he wrote from the South Pacific, If anything happens to me I have this knowledge that if I had lived to be a hundred it could only have improved the quantity of my life not the quality Knowing you has been the brightest point in an extremely bright twenty-six years. Jack made it home by 1944 and upon arriving in San Francisco, paid a visit to Inga, who had relocated there and continued working as a news-service journalist. He told her of his adventure at sea and the sinking of his PT boat. Inga promptly turned it into an article about the skipper hero, that appeared in the Boston Globe , Pittsburgh Post-Gazette and other newspapers.

" Across the NFL, current and former players say the rule adaptation is a long time coming. Terrell Owens , perhaps the greatest celebrant in league history, tweeted: "It's amazing," Pittsburgh receiver Antonio Brown told reporters about the rule change after Steelers practice Wednesday. Last year, after scoring a touchdown in Week 6 against the Philadelphia Eagles, Washington tight end Vernon Davis mimicked a basketball jump shot using the crossbar as his hoop. It led to a 15-yard penalty and a short kickoff for Philadelphia, which returned the kick for a touchdown. Davis was fined $12,000. If he did the same thing this fall, he wouldn't be penalized. "Guys want to celebrate, they want to make it fun," Davis told Master Tesfatsion of the Washington Post . "That's what this game isit's all about having fun. Go out there, you don't want to be uptight.

Free agent cornerback Justin Gilbert was reportedly suspended for the first four games of the 2017 season by NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell . Courtney Fallon of NFL Network reported the news Thursday, and Ian Rapoport of NFL.com noted the penalty was for the violation of the NFL's Substances of Abuse policy. The suspension makes the 2014 first-round pick an even less attractive option on the free-agency market after the Pittsburgh Steelers cut him this offseason. He appeared in 12 games for the Steelers in 2016 and notched three tackles and zero interceptions. In fact, the Oklahoma State product has just one interception in his career since the Cleveland Browns used the No. 8 overall pick on him in 2014. Former teammate Joe Thomas turned heads earlier this offseason when he reacted to Pittsburgh's decision to release Gilbert: Gilbert is still young, but Michael David Smith of Pro Football Talk said that, based on the suspension, "it's possible that this player with Top 10 talent could be done at age 25."

The Los Angeles Dodgers placed outfielder Joc Pederson on the seven-day disabled list Thursday with a concussion and reactivated starting pitcher Kenta Maeda from the 10-day DL. Pederson, 25, suffered a concussion after colliding with Yasiel Puig while attempting to haul in a fly ball during Tuesday's game against the St. Louis Cardinals . The move is retroactive May 24, so Pederson will be eligible to return May 31. Maeda, 29, made his last start May 10 against the Pittsburgh Pirates . He is 3-2 with a 5.03 ERA and 1.17 WHIP thus far in 2017. Dodgers manager Dave Roberts previously told reporters he did not expect Pederson would need to spend time on the disabled list. He was initially diagnosed with a neck strain but took a strong shot to the head from Puig's elbow. The former top prospect has been limited to 35 games this season due to injury.

DAVIE, Fla. (AP) - Back from a season-ending knee injury, Miami Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill says he has healed and feels "totally normal."
