SAN DIEGO -- The Colorado Rockies say All-Star shortstop Troy Tulowitzki will have surgery on his left hip Friday in Vail, Colorado, and miss the rest of the season. The team announced the news following their 5-3 loss to the Padres on Wednesday. Tulowitzki, whose .340 batting average remains tops in the big leagues, was placed on the 15-day disabled list on July 22, three days after he was hurt running out a grounder at Pittsburgh. While it was Tulowitzkis first trip to the DL this season, he had taken days off to rest his chronically tight legs. The leg issues date to 2008 when he tore the left quadriceps tendon.

Commissioner Roger Goodell, through the collective bargaining agreement between the two parties, has the power of discipline, the league wrote.The hearing is scheduled for Feb. 6 in front of U.S. District Judge David Doty. The NFL suspended Peterson through at least April 15 for the child-abuse case he was involved in, and Petersons appeal was denied by Henderson, a former a league official.The union accused Henderson of bias in the petition, but the NFLs lawyers wrote that actual prejudice couldnt be demonstrated.And evident partiality cannot serve as a basis for vacating an award, the league said.The NFL also argued that, because Henderson ordered executive Troy Vincent to testify over the leagues objection, the long-time arbitrator was not favouring the NFL in his decision.Peterson missed all but one game this season, serving paid leave on a special exempt liist before the six-game suspension without pay was enacted.dddddddddddd.The union, in the petition, said Henderson ran roughshod over the required procedural protections of the CBA and summarily rubber-stamped the unlawful process and punishment of Mr. Peterson with his ruling. Part of the NFLPAs argument against the suspension was fundamental unfairness, citing the enhanced domestic violence policy that took effect in August, more than three months after the injuries occurred to Petersons 4-year-old son. The union accused Goodell of punishing Peterson to satiate public calls for his resignation due to prior disciplinary failures and said he picked Henderson to hear the appeal to to avoid another embarrassing reversal of his decision.But the NFL, in the filing Friday, said the issue of fundamental fairness has never been recognized as a basis for vacating an arbitration award in the federal court system.Peterson will turn 30 in march. His contract calls for a $12.75 million salary in 2015 with a hit to the teams salary cap of $15.4 million, putting his status with the Vikings in question. General manager Rick Spielman, head coach Mike Zimmer and several teammates have said they support Peterson and would welcome his return. But Spielman sidestepped questions this week about whether the Vikings can afford to keep him on the roster.___AP NFL websites: and Cheap NFL Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Wholesale NFL Jerseys Jerseys From China Wholesale NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
