ArDarius Stewart NYJ WR
ArDarius Stewart: Placed on practice squad IR2m ago
The Jets placed Stewart on practice squad IR, Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News reports.
Stewart was New York's third-round pick in 2017 and hauled in six passes for 82 yards during his rookie season. He survived initial roster cuts this year, but was waived after his suspension for violating the NFL's policy on PEDs was lifted.
Deontay Burnett NYJ WR
Deontay Burnett: Signs with Jets' practice squad8m ago
The Jets signed Burnett to the practice squad Tuesday, Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News reports.
Burnett signed with the Titans as an undrafted free agent in May and put together a strong preseason before being released during final roster cuts. He takes the spot of ArDarius Stewart, who was placed on the team's practice squad IR.
Davon House GB DB
Packers' Davon House: Placed on IR10m ago
The Packers placed House (shoulder) on injured reserve Tuesday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.
Outside of a two-year stint in Jacksonville, House has called Green Bay home for the majority of his career. After starting 12 games in in his return to Title Town, he entered his eight year as a pro in a depth corner role. Although he has been nursing a sore shoulder since the season kicked off, he saw his workload increase after Kevin King (groin) went down in Week 2. It appears he suffered a serious enough of a setback in last week's loss to the Redskins to keep him sidelined the rest of the season.
Jonathon Mincy CHI DB
Jonathan Mincy: Released from Chicago's practice squad15m ago
The Bears released Mincy from the practice squad Tuesday.
Mincy has spent time with the Falcons and Bears during his career but has yet to make a 53-man roster. The former Auburn product will look for an opportunity elsewhere.
Marcus Sherels MIN DB
Vikings' Marcus Sherels: Not practicing Tuesday22m ago
Sherels (ribs) sat out Tuesday's practice, Courtney Cronin of ESPN.com reports.
Sherels suffered a rib injury in Week 2 and was inactive Sunday against the Bills. The 30-year-old cornerback will have to make a dramatic recovery if he expects to play Thursday versus the Bills, though that seems unlikely. Mike Hughes is set to take Sherels' place as the team's punt and kick returner.
Kenjon Barner NE RB
Patriots' Kenjon Barner: Re-signs with Pats24m ago
Barner agreed to re-sign with the Patriots on Tuesday, Mike Reiss of ESPN.com reports.
Barner was released by New England last week, but with Rex Burkhead nursing a neck injury he was scooped back up to boost depth at running back. He remains unlikely to make any noise out of the backfield, but he could revive his role as punt returner.
Shelby Miller ARI SP
Diamondbacks' Shelby Miller: Hopes to pitch over weekend5m ago
Miller (elbow) is scheduled to throw a 60-pitch simulated game Tuesday, Jack Magruder of The Sports Xchange reports.
Miller has been sidelined since the All-Star break with inflammation in his elbow, but he appears to be on the cusp of a return. If all goes well during the right-hander's simulated outing, he could be cleared to rejoin the Diamondbacks ahead of their three-game series against the Padres that begins Friday.
Jeff Mathis ARI C
Diamondbacks' Jeff Mathis: On bench again Tuesday9m ago
Mathis is not in the lineup Tuesday against the Dodgers.
Mathis will stick on the bench for a second consecutive contest as John Ryan Murphy picks up another start behind the dish in his place. The veteran backstop is hitting just .129/.206/.258 with one homer through 14 games in September.
Francisco Arcia LAA C
Angels' Francisco Arcia: Situated on bench Tuesday11m ago
Arcia is not in the lineup Tuesday against the Rangers, Jeff Fletcher of The Orange County Register reports.
Arcia will take a seat after starting the last two games behind the dish, going hitless in six at-bats in those starts. Joe Hudson will catch Matt Shoemaker and hit ninth in this one.
Jameson Taillon PIT SP
Pirates' Jameson Taillon: May not start again in 201814m ago
Taillon may not make his scheduled start Saturday against the Reds, Adam Berry of MLB.com reports.
Manager Clint Hurdle noted that he talked to Taillon and the two are still "working through some information to make a good decision" regarding his final start of the season. The 25-year-old has already thrown a career-high 185 innings -- posting a 3.16 ERA, 1.18 WHIP and 172:46 K:BB in the process (31 starts) -- so the Pirates, who are out of playoff contention, may simply want to preserve the right-hander heading into the offseason. It's unclear who would take Taillon's turn in the rotation Saturday if he doesn't pitch.
Jimmy Nelson MIL SP
Brewers' Jimmy Nelson: Throwing live bullpens18m ago
Nelson (shoulder) continues to throw live bullpen sessions in Arizona, Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.
Nelson has yet to throw in an instructional league game, but the Brewers hope he'll be able to do so before heading into his offseason. The 29-year-old has been throwing bullpen sessions since mid-August but his status remains largely uncertain as he is hopefully ready for spring training after missing the entirety of 2018.
Gregor Blanco SF LF
Giants' Gregor Blanco: Takes seat against southpaw28m ago
Blanco is not in the lineup Tuesday against the Padres, John Shea of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
Blanco will sit for a second straight game as the Giants stack righties against southpaw Robbie Erlin. Gorkys Hernandez is starting in center field and hitting seventh in this on e
Robert Williams BOS PF
Celtics' Robert Williams: Sits out scrimmage, to play in preseason opener37m ago
Williams (knee) went through a full workout Tuesday morning, but sat out the Celtics' scrimmage later in the day, Scott Souza of GateHouse Media reports. Head coach Brad Stevens said he expects Williams to play in the preseason opener Friday against the Hornets.
Williams was expected to be a full go heading into camp, but it appears the Celtics took it easy on the rookie during Day 1. Still, the plan is to have him available for the team's first exhibition contest later this week, so Williams should be upping his activity in the coming few days. Look for him to be without restrictions by the time the regular season approaches.
Kyrie Irving BOS PG
Celtics' Kyrie Irving: Practices without restrictions45m ago
Irving (knee) was a full participant in the Celtics' first practice Tuesday, Scott Souza of GateHouse Media reports.
Irving has been deemed fully healthy for roughly a month now, so this was the expectation all along. The superstar point guard didn't take long to make an impact and according to A. Sherrod Blakely of NBC Sports Boston, he knocked down a game-winning shot with 2.4 seconds left in the team's scrimmage. That's certainly encouraging and the Celtics already reported that Irving won't have restrictions to start the regular season. Gordon Hayward also was a full participant and said he was playing in the preseason opener this Friday, so we should see the two on the court together live for the first time in 2018.
Gordon Hayward BOS SF
Celtics' Gordon Hayward: Plans to play in preseason opener1h ago
Hayward said following Tuesday's practice that he intends to play in the Celtics' preseason opener Friday against the Hornets, Scott Souza of GateHouse Media reports.
In his first official practice back with the Celtics, Hayward apparently felt great and he was even able to dunk off his left leg, which was the one he fractured in the first game of last season. While there certainly could be some soreness in the coming few days, Hayward plans to take the court in the preseason opener, so we should get our first look of the year at him playing alongside Kyrie Irving once again. Still, it wouldn't be surprising if the Celtics kept his minutes in check in the first exhibition contest and further word on his workload will likely come at some point closer to game day.
Goran Dragic MIA PG
Heat's Goran Dragic: Tweaks ankle, not expected to miss time2h ago
Dragic tweaked his ankle during Tuesday's practice, but he doesn't expect to miss any time, Tim Reynolds of the Associated Press reports.
The tweak is being considered very minor, so barring a surprise uptick in discomfort or swelling in the coming few days, Dragic should be able to resume practicing as usual. Still, for those playing preseason DFS, it will be something to monitor ahead of the team's exhibition opener Sunday against the Spurs.
DeMarcus Cousins GS C
Warriors' DeMarcus Cousins: Progressing quickly in rehab2h ago
Cousins (Achilles) remains limited, but coach Steve Kerr intimated that he's further along than expected in his recovery from a torn Achilles, Anthony Slater of The Athletic reports. "We're just taking it slowly, but I don't think it'll be too long before he's taking part in practice," Kerr said.
The Warriors have the luxury of bringing Cousins along slowly, but it sounds as though the big man could be back on the court with his new teammates sooner than expected. Earlier this week, president of basketball operations Bob Myers stated that Cousins would be evaluated in four weeks, at which point a return-to-play timeline should become more clear. Given Kerr's comments Tuesday, it seems possible that Cousins could be cleared for practice after that four-week evaluation, which is slated to take place less than a week after the Warriors open the regular season.
Jabari Bird BOS SG
Celtics' Jabari Bird: Not with team2h ago
Bird (not injury related) was not with the team during Tuesday's practice, Clevis Murray of The Athletic reports.
Bird was arrested after an alleged assault earlier in September. Until the legal process plays out, he'll likely continue to be away from the team.
David Perron STL LW
Blues' David Perron: In the fold Tuesday6m ago
Perron (groin) took line rushes and will play Tuesday's preseason game versus the Capitals, Lou Korac of NHL.com reports.
Perron was expected to play, but he's been a last-minute scratch in each of the last two games. His place on the third line with Tyler Bozak and Alexander Steen reinforces his health.
Pekka Rinne NSH G
Predators' Pekka Rinne: Tending twine Tuesday13m ago
Rinne will start Tuesday's preseason game against the Hurricanes, Brooks Bratten of the Predators' official site reports.
Rinne struggled in his last preseason outing, allowing four goals on 18 shots in a loss to the Lightning. Last year's Vezina Trophy winner is more than capable of bouncing back and should still be viewed as a top commodity in daily fantasy formats.
Anders Nilsson VAN G
Canucks' Anders Nilsson: Protecting net Tuesday1h ago
Nilsson will start Tuesday's preseason game against the Oilers, Dan Murhpy of Sportsnet reports.
A week ago, Nilsson made his preseason debut and struggled, allowing four goals on 28 shots in a loss to Edmonton. He'll face the same foe this time around, and Nilsson should be discounted in daily fantasy with plenty of talented goaltenders suiting up Tuesday.
Jan Rutta CHI D
Blackhawks' Jan Rutta: Ready to roll2h ago
Rutta (groin) is in the projected lineup for Tuesday's preseason game against the Red Wings.
Rutta has missed the Blackhawks' last few preseason contests due to a groin injury, but he's evidently left that issue in the rear-view mirror. The 28-year-old blueliner could have some value in deeper fantasy formats this season after notching six goals and 20 points in 57 games last campaign.
Rinat Valiev MON D
Canadiens' Rinat Valiev: Placed on waivers2h ago
Valiev was placed on waivers by the Canadiens on Tuesday, Stu Cowan of the Montreal Gazette reports.
Valiev played just two games for Montreal after he was acquired from Toronto in February. He was positioned to play out the final six weeks of the season, but a lower-body injury ended that experiment. Without the seasoning those six weeks may have given him, Valiev is likely headed back to the AHL to start the 2018-19 campaign. He will open the season with Laval if he clears waivers.
Louis Domingue TB G
Lightning's Louis Domingue: In line to start Tuesday2h ago
Domingue is the projected starter for Tuesday's preseason game against the Panthers.
Domingue will likely continue to see plenty of work as Tampa Bay finishes up its preseason schedule with three straight meetings against the Panthers.
