This lines up with Anderson's anticipated timeline from back at the start of the season. He will need multiple rehab starts to get to the point where the
Offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels noted Wednesday that both Garoppolo and Tom Brady -- who is suspended for the first four weeks of the season -- will "get plenty of reps" in training camp, WEEI.com reports.
Rookie Jacoby Brissett will also see his share of reps, but NFL.com relays that coach Bill Belichick has made it clear that the team's priority is to get Garoppolo "ready for the start of the season, the Arizona game" in Week 1. Meanwhile Belichick reiterated Wednesday what has been assumed; "Tom (Brady) will return as the starting quarterback when he comes back, but in the meantime we can prioritize the first part of our schedule." Thus, barring an injury, Garoppolo is in line to play against the Cardinals, Dolphins, Texans and Bills out of the gate this coming season, while Brady will return to action on Oct. 9 against the Browns.
Span is out of the lineup Wednesday against the Reds.
Span has not received a day off since July 6, so he will get a chance to rest during Thursday's afternoon affair with the Reds. Gregor Blanco will start in center field and lead off in his place. Span is slashing .276/.323/.310 with one steal in 58 at-bats this month.
Jarnkrok and the Predators were scheduled for an arbitration hearing, however the two sides reach a settlement. At an annual average value of just $2 million, this is a good signing for Smashville, as they get a 24-year-old coming off his first 30-point season at a relatively discounted rate. In terms of fantasy value, the center's upside is slightly decreased by his lack of ice time with the man advantage, but owners will certainly be willing to overlook that if he can put together another solid campaign in 2016-17.
The Kings were apparently exploring the possibility of luring Calathes back to the NBA due to his familiarity with new coach Dave Joerger, who had previously worked with the point guard during his time with the Grizzlies. However, with Calathes entering the second season of a three-year, $7 million pact with Panathinaikos, the 27-year-old elected to stay in Europe, where he'll likely earn a higher salary than he would have at the NBA level. Calathes could entertain a return to North America in 2017-18 if he continues to perform well for the Greek club during the upcoming campaign.
