FALL RIVER, Mass. Sidney Crosby Jersey . - The judge overseeing the murder trial of former New England Patriots player Aaron Hernandez on Friday settled on a pool of 53 prospective jurors from which the court will try to seat 18 jurors.Opening statements in the case are expected Tuesday, though that could change.It depends on whether we lose some of those cleared jurors on Monday, said Mark Ferriera, an assistant clerk at the Bristol County Superior Court.He said Judge Susan Garsh was expected to ask the pool of jurors on Monday if they would have trouble being fair and impartial, then allow prosecutors and the defence to exercise whats called peremptory challenges, which allow them to excuse a juror for any reason. Each side gets 18 peremptories.If both sides use all their challenges, or if jurors are excused by the court for another reason, the court might not have the 18 jurors it needs and would return to the slow process of questioning individual jurors.Hernandez, 25, has pleaded not guilty to murder in the death of Odin Lloyd, 27, who was found shot to death in June 2013 at an industrial park near Hernandezs home in North Attleborough. At the time of Lloyds killing, Hernandez had a $40 million contract with the Patriots. The sister of Hernandezs fiancee was dating Lloyd.Jury selection has lasted two weeks so far and started with a pool of more than 1,000 prospective jurors. During the first phase, prospective jurors filled out a 51-question survey that asked, for example, whether they were fans of the Patriots. After excusing many jurors who expressed biases or said they had hardships or other valid reasons not to serve on the jury, Garsh has worked since last week to question jurors individually to whittle the pool down further.The process has played out in open court but outside the hearing of onlookers. As white noise played over the courtroom speakers, Garsh has murmured questions to prospective jurors while Hernandez, his lawyers and prosecutors huddled around to hear their answers. Onlookers could only hear whether a prospective juror was excused or retained in the pool.Eighteen jurors must be seated. That number includes six alternates, who will be randomly selected immediately before deliberations.The trial will not be the end of Hernandezs legal troubles. He faces separate murder charges in Boston, where he is accused of killing two men after one of them accidentally spilled a drink on him at a nightclub in 2012. The trial date has not yet been set. Tom Barrasso Jersey . Speaking with TSN 1050 following Brendan Shanahans introductory press conference, the Leafs GM also addressed the clubs perceived leadership issues and the type of working relationship that can be expected within Torontos front office. Jake Guentzel Jersey . 1 player in the world. So Duval gutted it out Thursday at the Byron Nelson Championship despite the pain from a muscle issue in his right elbow, a day after his stepson had to drive him because he couldnt even use that arm.NASHVILLE, Tenn. - Titans quarterback Jake Locker did not practice Wednesday because of an injured right wrist, and whether he plays against the Indianapolis Colts will depend on how much he heals up by Sunday.The wrist on Lockers throwing arm was bent during the Titans 33-7 loss at Cincinnati last week, and the quarterback said he felt something during the game.When the adrenaline stopped, it started hurting a little more ..., Locker said. Im just working as hard as I can to get back as soon as possible.The timing couldnt be much worse for the Titans (1-2). They have lost two straight, and Locker has been intercepted twice in each loss. The quarterback is in the final year of his contract and already has missed 14 of a potential 32 starts the past two seasons. Its why the Titans didnt pick up his 2015 option back in May.Coach Ken Whisenhunt said Locker didnt do much at all, which was why the quarterback was listed as not practicing. Whisenhunt said Locker followed practice closely mentally preparing. The coach said they knew the Titans face a process with Lockers wrist healing up.Nothings changed about that, Whisenhunt said. Hes getting better. Its just a question of how quickly that progresses.If Locker cant play Sunday in Indianapolis (1-2), then Charlie Whitehurst would make his first start since 2011 when he started two games and played in three for Seattle. Now in his ninth season, Whitehurst is 1-3 as a starter and has more interceptions (four) than touchdowns (three).The Titans cut Ryan Fitzpatrick in March and signed Whitehurst because he spent last season with Whisenhunt in San Diego.Whisenhunt said they have to see how Locker progresses the next couple days before knowing if they face a game-time decision on who starts at quarterback. This being his first sseason with Locker, the coach still is learning about his quarterback. Patric Hornqvist Jersey. All I can do is go off of talking with him and seeing how he prepares, Whisenhunt said. He works hard. Hes into it today. I respect that. We havent gone through this process with a lot of our players, so I cant honestly answer that yet.Whitehurst was limited himself this preseason by an injured right pinkie, and he still had the finger wrapped after practice Wednesday. If Locker cant play, then Whitehursts backup would be rookie Zach Mettenberger who has been inactive the first three games.The last time Whitehurst appeared in a game was twice last season in San Diego, the last on Dec. 8 against the Giants. The last game he threw a pass in was Oct. 30, 2011, when he was 4 of 7 for 52 yards against Cincinnati while with Seattle. Whitehurst was sacked eight times in three appearances that season.Its been a while since Ive been in a meaningful game for sure, Whitehurst said. You just want to prepare. Ill be ready for it.Veteran Colts backup quarterback Matt Hasselbeck, who played with the Titans during Lockers first two seasons, said its extremely difficult to play with any injury to the right arm.Now Jake is a really, really tough kid, so nothing would surprise me if hes able to go, Hasselbeck said. But theyd still be in good hands with Whitehurst, who I played with in Seattle. I just think Jake is a really tough kid.Notes: TE Delanie Walker (shoulder) and TE Taylor Thompson (knee) also did not practice. DE Ropati Pitoitua (knee) and LB James Anderson (thigh) were limited.___AP Sports Writer Michael Marot in Indianapolis contributed to this report.___Online:AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and www.twitter.com/AP_NFL___Follow Teresa M.
