ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- The Tampa Bay Rays held a moment of silence for Don Zimmer before Thursdays game against Miami. The Rays will also have a ceremony for their team senior adviser before Saturdays game with Seattle. Zimmer spent 66 years in pro baseball and died Wednesday at 83. He had been in a Florida rehab centre since heart surgery in mid-April. Tom Zimmer, Dons son and a San Francisco Giants scout, issued a family statement thanking all of those who "rooted so hard" for "Pops recovery." "What a great life he has had," the statement said. "The game goes on without him now, but he surely would have expressed once again that I was so lucky to be part of this game for a lifetime." Tom Zimmer called his fathers final few years a "huge struggle." "In baseball terms he battled the best he could but simply was running out of gas," he said. "These last eight weeks, he was just too weakened to survive anymore and we are grateful the suffering has ended. We will miss him terribly, but will have a lifetime of memories." There is no funeral or other memorial service planned. In lieu of flowers, the family asked donations be made to either the National Kidney Foundation or the Baseball Assistance team. cheap nfl jerseys .

"He practiced a good bit and looked like he was doing the things he needs to do for us," interim head coach Jack Del Rio said. Manning missed practice Wednesday to get more treatment on the right ankle he aggravated when Chargers defensive lineman Corey Liuget dove at the quarterbacks lower legs toward the end of last Sundays game. Both Del Rio and Manning have insisted Manning will play Sunday when the Broncos (8-1) host the Chiefs (9-0) with first place in the AFC West on the line. On Wednesday, Manning said sitting out of practice was not his preference but something he had to do in the best interest of the team. Del Rio agreed with that view. "He did the smart thing, did a little extra time yesterday and continues to do his thing with prreparation," Del Rio said.dddddddddddd. "Hes tremendous with that and its well-documented. Good player whos back at practice and is getting ready to play a good team." Offensive co-ordinator Adam Gase said Manning missing a Wednesday practice -- the way many veterans do, especially later in the season -- wouldnt affect Denvers preparation. "When you have Peyton back there, he knows this offence in and out," Gase said. "Him running one more rep of a play hes run 4,000 times, thats really not going to make the difference of what were doing. The big day is today and tomorrow, making sure that Saturday were nice and clean going into the game." Meanwhile, Mannings absence gave backup Brock Osweiler a chance to get reps with the first team. "Those are huge for him," Gase said. "The only thing that could be better for him is if hes ever in a game and hopefully we can hold that tenure for a while." ' ' '
