"The likelihood is a week to 10 days before he's back on to the pitch and then a few days more before he's available," Rodgers told reporters after their 3-1 FA Cup win at Brentford.

The New York Times has come under fire for canceling the contract of editor Lauren Wolfe after she tweeted last Tuesday that she got “chills” over Joe Biden arriving in Washington, D.C., ahead of his inauguration as president. Wolfe, an award-winning journalist who has reported from war zones in Syria and Congo, became a trending topic on Twitter over the weekend as people expressed outrage over her ouster, called for her reinstatement and set up a Venmo account to provide financial aid. “I honestly think if Lauren Wolfe had written, ‘I love Joe Biden, he’s the bestest president ever!’ it STILL wouldn’t have been a fireable offense,” Baltimore magazine editor Max Weiss wrote. “But ‘I have chills’? That could be construed as being awestruck by the sight of Democracy in action.” “The fact that Tom Friedman can spout absolute warmongering nonsense about the Middle East for decades but NYT fires Lauren Wolfe over a single tweet tells you everything you need to know,” author Jillian York tweeted. Others called on the Times to rehire Wolfe. “You are punishing someone who should be idealized because she said something that pissed off fascists? Please. Please. PLEASE. Hire Lauren Wolfe back,” Josh Shahryar tweeted. Also Read: LA Times Newsroom Demands an Outsider Fill Executive Editor Position (Exclusive) According to HuffPost and New York magazine journalist Yashar Ali, Wolfe had been ousted from the Times after two since-deleted tweets about Biden, one expressing “chills” about his arrival in Washington and another that incorrectly faulted the “pettiness” of the Trump administration for not sending a military plane to fly Biden to the capital. (Wolfe herself deleted that tweet on learning that Biden had chosen to take his own plane.) A rep for the Times did not immediately respond to a request for comment. Wolfe had been responsible for editing online stories for the Times related to the pandemic and breaking news events, Ali said, and said that right-wing critics had called attention to her tweets. On Saturday, Wolfe also called out New York Post reporter Keith Kelly for a Friday story about her sacking that included a paparazzi photo of her and her dog on the sidewalk near her home. “Are you proud of stalking me today? And of lying that I ‘could not be reached’ when you never tried to even contact me?” she tweeted. “Judging me as a journalist on these terms, while I am being stalked by your photog and getting death treats–you judge ME my work? Shame on you.” Kelly did not immediately respond to a request for comment. See more reactions below. The firing of Lauren Wolfe raises an important issue. If working as a journalist, is it better to: a) have no opinions; b) pretend you have none; or c) own them honestly and still work to be fair? I would choose c. I think it's phony to pretend to be objective. https://t.co/rRYIn9M04a — Alex Gibney (@alexgibneyfilm) January 24, 2021 Lauren Wolfe fires off a dumb tweet, fired.

Twenty-two aid groups working in Yemen called on Sunday for the new U.S. administration to revoke the designation of Yemen's Iran-backed Houthi movement as a foreign terrorist organization, saying it puts millions of lives and the peace process at risk. The U.S. State Department has initiated a review of the designation, which came into effect Jan. 19, the day before President Joe Biden's inauguration. The designation freezes any U.S.-related assets of the Houthis, bans Americans from doing business with them and makes it a crime to provide support or resources to the movement.
