The Buffalo Bills have voided the final two years of Percy Harvin 's (hip/knee) contract, which will make the wideout a free agent on March 9, Sal Capaccio of WGR 550 reports.
With much uncertainty surrounding Harvin's desire to continue his NFL pursuits, the Bills will search elsewhere for a No. 2 receiver to complement top option Sammy Watkins. All options have been on the table for Harvin, including retirement, but his rehab from knee surgery and avoiding further issues with his hip will ultimately play a role in whether he's a part of a roster in the fall.
Martin Jones will get the start in goal Saturday against the Coyotes, Kevin Kurz of CSN Bay Area reports.
Jones was perfect in his last start, stopping all 33 shots he faced en route to an impressive 2-0 shutout victory over the Blackhawks on Tuesday. The 26-year-old netminder will look to pick up his 26th win of the season Saturday in a favorable matchup with a slumping Arizona club five of its last six games.
Aaron Rodgers said this week that his knee feels "great" after undergoing arthroscopic surgery last month, USA Today reports.
Rodgers is participating in the Pebble Beach Pro-Am, marking his first round of golf since last July. The aforementioned procedure was intended to clean up an old injury, and his ability to make it through 18 holes is an encouraging sign in his recovery. Expect Rodgers to be healthy once the offseason program kicks off in April.
Rick Nash (leg) has been downgraded and is now week-to-week, Andrew Gross of The Record reports.
Nash reportedly is dealing with a bone bruise and is effectively ruled out for at least one week, at which point he'll be reevaluated. The sniper's been out for the past eight games due to the ailment but the Blueshirts have managed to win five of those contests without him.
Madison Bumgarner has been named the team's Opening Day starter by manager Bruce Bochy, Andrew Baggarly of CSN Bay Area reports.
This comes as no surprise to anyone, as the left-hander turned in his best statistical season last year. He'll face a rebuilding Brewers squad to open up the 2016 campaign.
