                     === Oakland RB Sheets out for year ===
 
 Alameda,  CA  (SportsNetwork.com) - Former  CFL standout Kory Sheets will miss
 the  2014 season  after  suffering a  torn Achilles  tendon  in Friday's  game
 against Green Bay.
 
 Sheets  was competing  for a backup running back and kick returner position on
 the  Raiders,  but on his Twitter  account he stated: "A dream deferred....out
 for the year."
 
 The  29-year-old signed  a  contract with  Oakland in  the  offseason after  a
 successful  two-year run  with the  Saskatchewan Roughriders  of the  Canadian
 Football  League. He  set  a Grey  Cup-record  with 197  yards  and added  two
 touchdowns en route to earning MVP honors in last November's CFL title game.
 
 He  finished second  in the league with 1,598 rushing yards during the regular
 season while recording 37 catches for 264 yards.
 
 Sheets  signed with  the Roughriders in 2012 and racked up 1,277 rushing yards
 while  scoring  13 touchdowns (11 rushing,  2 receiving) that season. He added
 517 yards on 49 receptions.
 
 The  Purdue  product played two  games for Miami in  2009 and spent the entire
 2010  campaign  on the Dolphins'  injured reserve  list after a right Achilles
 injury. He was waived by Miami the following year.
