VANCOUVER -- Terry Dunfield is not ready to call it a career. Josh Reynolds Jersey . The veteran Major League Soccer and Canadian international midfielder is training with the Vancouver Whitecaps as he recuperates from a knee injury and seeks another team. "At the minute, its just training for a few weeks," Dunfield said after a practice Friday at B.C. Place Stadium. "Im just getting over a meniscus injury. Ive made it through the first week, and the body feels good." Dunfield, a 31-year-old Vancouver native, was released from Toronto FC in June. He suffered the injury while training with Toronto prior to being waived through MLS and becoming a free agent. "After two or three weeks, Ill see what my options are and then sort of re-assess from there," he said. "But at the minute, Im no good to anyone when Im not fit." Dunfield said he has received "one or two offers" from MLS clubs but is waiting until he is healthy to make a commitment. He plans to talk to the Whitecaps, for whom he played the first half of their 2011 expansion season before being traded to Toronto. But Vancouver coach Martin Rennie has all but ruled out signing him. Dunfield made 56 combined appearances for Toronto in MLS league play, CONCACAF Champions League, and the Amway Canadian Championship, while producing six goals for the Reds. He had one goal and three assists in 12 MLS games with the Whitecaps in 2011. A former Manchester City youth player, he played in England before joining the Whitecaps in a second-tier circuit in 2010. He says he wants to make sure that he can find "the right fit" if another team signs him. "I cant wait to get back out there and make up for lost time -- both at the club level and for Canada," said Dunfield. But he has a tight deadline when it comes to finding employment. MLS clubs must freeze their rosters by Sept. 13. Gerald Everett Womens Jersey . Fellow Argentina forward Gonzalo Higuain also had a brace for Napoli. And Samuel Etoo scored for his fourth different team. On a night of standout individual performances Wednesday, Schalke goalkeeper Timo Hildebrand had a game hell want to forget. Gerald Everett Rams Jersey . -- Josh MacDonalds second goal of the game kept his team alive as the Peterborough Petes edged the host Kingston Frontencas 6-5 in overtime on Friday in Ontario Hockey League playoff action.ASHBURN, Va. - Asked if it really matters whether hes liked by his teammates, Robert Griffin III had the classic turn-the-tables response.Do you like everybody you work with? he responded to the reporter.The Washington Redskins quarterback went on to say that winning is really not even about that, that its more about other topics that several veterans have stressed, such as: We cant let anybody try to tear us apart from the outside in.Griffin conceded Wednesday that there were a few out of the group of his teammates who might have not been in favour of his regaining the starting quarterback job two weeks ago after Colt McCoy led back-to-back victories.Those few were the target of a brief unity speech delivered by usually quiet receiver DeSean Jackson last week before the team split up for a bye week vacation.Who those guys are, we dont really care, Griffin said. The thing that he stressed and the thing that we are stressing is that were focused on winning.All the talk about unity and leadership in the locker room is the sort of thing that comes with a 3-6 record, which is now an annual occurrence in Washington.Or, as fullback Darrel Young put it this week: If we win, theres no talk about leadership. End of conversation.Joining in that chorus on Wednesday was a leadership voice that has been mostly quiet this season.Nine-year veteran nose tackle Barry Cofield is back on the active roster after spending eight weeks recovering from a severe ankle sprain and groin surgery while on short-term injured reserve. He said hes kept a public silence because its hard to set an example while standing on the sideline.From a leadership perspective, I just want to lead by example, Cofield said. Im just going to be honest — I feel it can be overstated.Im kind of on DYs level: When youre winning, no one worries about it. No asks you who are the leaders. ... Maybe the difference between the team that wins and loses the Super Bowl is a great leader that just brings something to the table, but the difference between being 3--6 and the playoffs is not speeches. Cooper Kupp Youth Jersey. Its not having somebody to look at that you consider a leader. Its really about individuals doing their job better, so we need to start there.For what its worth, Griffin said he feels the Redskins are getting closer as a family.I dont know everything, thats for dang sure, but I do know a little thing about changing the culture, Griffin said. And it takes everybody from the top down. The players have to be willing, and I think weve got guys in that locker room that are willing.Coach Jay Gruden echoed the sentiment, saying the media coverage of the teams leadership issues has, if anything, strengthened some bonds.I think since it came to light with yall saying that we werent a unified locker room, (that) we didnt have leaders, I think it kind of maybe made people think about it and realize were OK — maybe, he said, adding a chuckle.I think thats the case. I think theres some guys that are more willing now to step out of their shadow and maybe speak up a little bit more than maybe they wouldve. ... We dont have any leadership problems in my book, and the locker rooms been united as far as I can tell.Gruden has said in the past that Griffin can try too hard to be liked and can be sensitive to outside criticism, but the coach said Wednesday the QB is handling himself well.I just think that people can chip away at you if you continue to read everything written about you and listen to everything thats said about you on television, Gruden said.Hes a human, it can wear on you. I think really for a young kid thats been through as much as he has, both good and bad, already at age 24, hes shown the fact that he is a thick-skinned guy.I dont think anybody is liked by everybody. Heck, Im not liked by everybody. I might be, the coach said with a laugh. But its not about being liked. Its about performing at a consistent high level.___AP NFL websites: and Joseph White on Twitter: Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
