INDIANAPOLIS -- The Colts are giving running back Chris Rainey a second chance to prove he can play -- and stay out of trouble. Jim Kelly Jersey . Pittsburgh took Rainey in the fifth round of the 2012 draft, but released him in January following an arrest in Florida following an alleged altercation with his girlfriend. It wasnt the first time he ran into legal trouble, but for the Steelers it was the last straw. For 11 months, Rainey worked out and waited to be signed by another NFL team. Indianapolis (7-3) reached out to him Tuesday and signed him Wednesday. "Eleven months is a long time so Im just glad to be back," Rainey said Wednesday. Rainey is the latest gamble made by the Colts this season. They had previously signed receiver DaRick Rogers, who admitted to flunking multiple drug tests in college. They also have receiver LaVon Brazill, a second-year player they drafted in 2012 who missed four games after violating the leagues substance-abuse policy, and tight end Weslye Saunders, who was suspended eight games after violating the leagues performance-enhancing drug policy. Theres little doubt the 5-foot-9, 198-pound running back has talent. Coming out of the University of Florida, he was clocked in about 4.3 seconds in the 40-yard dash. And last season, Rainey played in all 16 games, rushing 26 times for 102 yards and two touchdowns while catching 14 passes for 60 yards. He also averaged 26.5 yards on kickoff returns. And he finished ninth on Floridas career rushing list with 2,464 yards. But the problems have come off the field. In college, he was reportedly charged with stalking -- something the Steelers investigated before taking him. In Pittsburgh, he reportedly received citations for driving with a suspended license, which was later dismissed, and "defiant trespass" at a casino -- and that was before the alleged trouble in Florida. Colts coach Chuck Pagano said Wednesday that the Colts made their expectations clear before signing Rainey even though its unclear how long hell stick around the Colts locker room. "We worked him out. We sat him down, spent a lot of time with him, obviously," Pagano said. "We feel like hes learned from his mistakes and theyre behind him." Rainey later acknowledged he has a different attitude about this chance because he spent so much time waiting to get back in the league, even turning down chances to play in the Canadian Football League. Wednesdays move is Indys latest attempt to shore up its offence since top receiver Reggie Wayne went out with a season-ending knee injury, and theyre hoping this one works out. Rainey insists hell make sure it does. "All I can do is move forward and just stay positive from here," Rainey said. "I know what people read. They dont know me, so the people who know me, they know me. I cant do nothing about it." Leonard Johnson Jersey . -- Nelson Cruz has only two hits in 15 at-bats against the Kansas City Royals this season. Brandon Tate Jersey .com) - The Oklahoma City Thunder will try to get back on track Monday night when they welcome the Minnesota Timberwolves to Chesapeake Energy Arena. http://www.authenticbillsfanatic.com/c-42-bills-tyrod-taylor-jersey.aspx . He made the comment at a media availability Saturday prior to Game 2 of the Boston-Montreal playoff series when a Quebec reporter said there is sentiment in Quebec that the NHL looks more favourably on Seattle than Quebec City when it comes to future expansion.SAN DIEGO -- In just more than one week, the guys who were on the sidelines Thursday night will be on the field, and the ones who were on the field will be on the sidelines or unemployed. In a scheduling rarity, the San Diego Chargers beat the Arizona Cardinals 12-9. Theyll play again at Glendale on Sept. 8 in the second half of a Monday Night Football doubleheader. Both teams rested their starters, leaving backups to compete for roster spots. Trips inside the 20-yard line were rare and neither team scored a touchdown, leaving the field goal kickers to fight it out. The Chargers did get to the Arizona 6 in the closing minutes, but third-string quarterback Brad Sorensen took a knee on three straight snaps. Nick Novak was good from 35, 39, 55 and 37 yards. Arizonas Chandler Catanzaro kicked field goals of 42, 38 and 35 yards. Leading 9-3, the Chargers went for it on fourth-and-goal from the 2 with 2 seconds left in the first half, but Kellen Clemens pass to Dontrelle Inman was intercepted by Jimmy Legree, who returned it 68 yards before being dragged down on a horse-collar tackle by Inman. Preston Brown Jersey. That gave Arizona the ball at the San Diego 20 and Catanzaro kicked a 38-yarder to pull within three. San Diegos Torrence Allen fumbled the second half kickoff and Arizonas Jalen Parmale recovered, setting up Catanzaros tying 35-yard field goal. Chargers rookie Tevin Reese had a rough game with several drops. He also fumbled in the third quarter, but centre Khalil Wilkes recovered and Novak kicked a go-ahead, 37-yard field goal on the next play. Arizona rookie quarterback Logan Thomas played the whole game. He completed 9 of 21 passes for 73 yards. He was intercepted by rookie Alden Darby in the closing minutes, giving the Chargers the ball on the Arizona 17. Clemens, San Diegos backup quarterback, was 14 of 25 for 158 yards. San Diego rookie Marion Grice, a sixth-round draft pick competing for the fourth running spot, gained 79 yards on 17 carries. Branden Oliver, an undrafted rookie, had 71 yards on 16 carries.
