MIAMI -- Miami Marlins slugger Giancarlo Stanton will begin a rehabilitation assignment Wednesday with Class A Jupiter following right knee surgery earlier this month. A.J. Green Jersey . Stanton hopes to return to the big league club on Aug. 10 to face the Los Angeles Dodgers during the Marlins next homestand. "Its not fun to just sit there helpless," Stanton said. "You still pick up some things, learn from the down times we are going through, thats all you can do. Im eager to get back, Ill be ready." Stanton, a 22-year old right fielder selected this year for his first All-Star team, is hitting .284 with 19 homers and 50 RBIs in 80 games. He has not played since July 7. Marlins left fielder Logan Morrison was placed on the 15-day disabled list before Sundays game against San Diego because of right knee inflammation. "Ive battled it the whole year, grinding it out, and obviously I wasnt doing anything to help the team win so I had to make a decision," Morrison said. "Ill try to rest it and not do (surgery). If that doesnt work out, obviously surgery is the next step." Morrison is hitless in his last 16 at-bats and is batting .230 with 11 homers and 36 RBIs. Peyton Manning Jersey .Y. -- UFC star Jon Jones was charged with DWI early Saturday after the car he was driving struck a utility pole, police said. Torrey Smith Jersey . Radmanovic made the go-ahead 3-pointer with 11.9 seconds remaining and Atlanta rallied in the fourth quarter to beat the Milwaukee Bucks 99-94 on Friday night. Maurice Jones-Drew Jersey . So the dynamic rookie scorer suited up and found the perfect remedy for his cold. Landeskog scored at 1:52 of overtime and the Avalanche beat the banged-up Anaheim Ducks 3-2 on Monday night to keep pace in a tightly congested Western Conference playoff picture. Darrius Heyward-Bey Jersey . At the same time, the Dallas Stars thought they had a legitimate shot at winning a championship but they had a decision to make. Do they give up a potential franchise player to acquire a veteran that could put them over the top? It was the definition of a present-for-future type of deal. Denarius Moore Jersey . -- Mark OMeara is the latest big name to pull out of the 2012 Montreal Championship.NEW YORK - Calvin Johnson took one look at the voting and smiled broadly. "Thats sweet," he said, as he studied The Associated Press 2011 NFL All-Pro Team. "Thats one of the best honours you can have other than being a Super Bowl champion. To be an All-Pro is a tremendous honour." Johnson and Vikings defensive end Jared Allen were the leading vote getters, each just one vote shy of being a unanimous pick. Quarterback Aaron Rodgers made the team for the first time, easily beating Drew Brees of the New Orleans Saints, 47 1/2 to 2 1/2. Rodgers led Green Bay to a league-best 15-1 record this season, after taking the Packers to the Super Bowl title last February. "I am a competitor," Rodgers said. "I care desperately about winning and doing everything I can to contribute. But personally, speaking for my own self, you learn exactly what you need to do to be able to balance the pressure from the outside with the pressure from within, that you put on yourself to be successful. Last years run is really going to help all of us and our preparation through the week." Johnson and Allen received 49 votes Friday from a nationwide panel of 50 media members who regularly cover the NFL. It was the fourth All-Pro Team for Allen, who led the league with 22 sacks, one-half short of the record. Johnson made it for the first time after hauling in 96 catches for a 17.5-yard average and scoring 16 touchdowns. "The All-Pro Team to me is one of the all-time accomplishments," said Allen, who also was selected in 2007 through 2009. "Pro Bowls are nice, but guys get voted in longer than they should and guys who deserve to go dont always get to. Its the whole league. Its not just an AFC and NFC thing. So to me this is the honour I hold the highest. Its something to put on the resume and tell the grandkids about." One rookie made the squad: Arizonas Patrick Peterson was selected as the kick returner. Peterson tied an NFL mark when he ran back four punts for touchdowns, including a 99-yarder in overtime to beat the Rams. "Its special to be the only rookie on the list and a nice way to end my first NFL season," said Peterson, a cornerback. Another cornerback, Darrelle Revis of the Jets, was behind Johnson and Allen with 48 selections. Ravens outside linebacker Terrell Suggs got 47. One oddity: Both first-team guards, Carl Nicks and Jahri Evans, were from the Saints. That hasnt happened since 1953, with Detroits Lou Creekmur and Dick Stanfel. "Thats a great honour and thats a long time since it happened," Nicks said. "I think this shows its recognized that we are strong and physical and not just big guys. We are athletic enough to pass protect 45 to 50 times a game and keep Drew clean." In the All-Pro backfield joining RRodgers, whose quarterback rating of 122. Tom Brady Jersey. 5 broke Peyton Mannings single-season mark, were Maurice Jones-Drew of Jacksonville, LeSean McCoy of Philadelphia, and fullback Vonta Leach of Baltimore. Its the first All-Pro selections for Jones-Drew, the leagues rushing leader with 1,606 yards, and McCoy. Leach made it last year with Houston. "It is a we thing, not a me thing," Jones-Drew said, praising his teammates on offence and his coaches. "The guys who dont get the glory and keep blocking all day, and the coaches who dont get enough credit, its for them." McCoy scored 20 touchdowns, 17 rushing, and was the brightest spot in a down year for the hyped Eagles. Yet ... "There are so many things I can do better," he said. "I look at the numbers and see so many plays I left on the field, so many yards. I can perfect my game a lot more." Record-setter Rob Gronkowski was the tight end. The Patriot set the single-season mark at his position with 1,327 yards receiving. Teammate Wes Welker (league-high 122 catches) was the other receiver. Pittsburghs Maurkice Pouncey was the centre, with Philadelphias Jason Peters and Clevelands Joe Thomas at tackle. Joining Allen on the defensive line were ends Jason Pierre-Paul of the Giants, and tackles Haloti Ngata of the Ravens and Justin Smith of the 49ers -- who also placed third at DE; the 49ers used him at both spots. "Actually, I knew that I was going to have a great year this year," said Pierre-Paul, in his second season with the Giants. "I came in and last year I had an all right season and I wanted to do better than what I did last year. Next season in 2012, I should be better than this year." The linebackers were Suggs and DeMarcus Ware of Dallas on the outside, Patrick Willis and NaVorro Bowman of the 49ers and Derrick Johnson of the Chiefs on the inside. Bowman and Johnson tied with 16 votes, half of Willis total. Revis and Charles Woodson of the Packers were the cornerbacks, with Troy Polamalu of the Steelers and Eric Weddle of the Chargers at safety. Both kickers were 49ers: placekicker David Akers and punter Andy Lee. Repeaters from 2010 were Polamalu, Revis, Willis, Ngata, Evans, Thomas and Leach. In addition to Johnson, Jones-Drew, McCoy and Peterson, other first-timers were Gronkowski, Nicks, Peters, Pouncey, Pierre-Paul, Smith, Suggs, Bowman, Johnson and Weddle. The 49ers led the All-Pro Team with five players, a testament to the turnaround in San Francisco under new coach Jim Harbaugh. Baltimore was next with three players. The Ravens are coached by Jim Harbaughs brother, John, whose team beat the 49ers on Thanksgiving night. There were 16 players from the NFC and 12 from the AFC. ' ' '
