For the Australian football team, the path to World Cup qualification initially became undone when it could only produce a tense 2-1 win over Thailand, sending them into the playoffs.

Alden Gonzales at ESPN is reporting, as is most everyone else, that the Rams signature player was not at practice today. And that's only part of the story.

Simple: Cleveland could flip that future asset into a current one, as in a player who could help the team win now rather than later.
