Mo Alie-Cox IND TE
Colts' Mo Alie-Cox: Loses injury tag18m ago
Alie-Cox (calf) no longer has an injury designation and will play Sunday versus the Cowboys.
Alie-Cox sat out the last three games but will gear up for his Week 15 return. The 25-year-old has six catches for 112 yards and two touchdowns this year and will slot in as the No. 2 tight end behind Eric Ebron. He's a low-volume player but the Colts use tight ends enough in the red zone that he could be good for a score.
Michael Bennett PHI DE
Eagles' Michael Bennett: Sports questionable designation27m ago
Bennett (foot) is questionable for Sunday's game versus the Rams, Zach Berman of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
Bennett didn't practice Wednesday or Thursday but worked at full speed Friday. The 33-year-old continues to excel in the pass rush with eight sacks in 13 games and he needs two more to tie his career high of 10 set back in 2015. Bennett's final game status will be released Sunday at 6:50 P.M. ET.
Avonte Maddox PHI FS
Eagles' Avonte Maddox: Questionable for Sunday30m ago
Maddox (knee/ankle) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game versus the Rams, Zach Berman of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
Maddox worked in a limited fashion Wednesday and Thursday but elevated to full participation Friday. If he's active at game time, expect Maddox to see a considerable workload with Sidney Jones (hamstring) already ruled out. The final verdict on his health will come at 6:50 P.M. ET.
Timmy Jernigan PHI DT
Eagles' Tim Jernigan: Won't dress Sunday34m ago
Jernigan (back) is ruled out for Sunday's game versus the Rams, Zach Berman of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
Jernigan has only suited up for one game this season -- Week 12 versus the Giants -- and logged just 20 defensive snaps. His absence is the norm for Philadelphia, so expect Haloti Ngata to continue working a large role.
Isaac Seumalo PHI G
Eagles' Isaac Seumalo: Won't suit up in Week 1537m ago
Seumalo (pectoral) is ruled out for Sunday's game versus the Rams, Zach Berman of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
Seumalo suffered this injury in Week 14 against the Cowboys. Expect Stefen Wisniewski to start at left guard in Seumalo's place against a fierce Rams pass rush.
Matt Chapman OAK 3B
Athletics' Matt Chapman: Undergoes shoulder surgery1h ago
Chapman underwent surgery Friday on his left shoulder. The procedure was a distal clavicle resection procedure, and he will be ready to swing in six weeks, according to the team's press release.
According to the A's, Chapman felt problems with the shoulder in offseason workouts and was evaluated by the team this week. He'll begin physical therapy next week.
Matt Chapman OAK 3B
Athletics' Matt Chapman: Has minor shoulder procedure1h ago
Chapman underwent surgery on his left shoulder Friday, and he's expected to resume swinging again within six weeks, Jane Lee of MLB.com reports.
Chapman reportedly began feeling discomfort in his shoulder during his offseason workouts, so he went under the knife to correct the issue prior to the 2019 campaign. The gold glover has now had two surgeries since the 2018 season came to an end, but Oakland fully expects their star third baseman to be healthy for spring training.
Luis Urias SD 2B
Padres' Luis Urias: Could spend time at shortstop6h ago
Urias may move over to the shortstop position following the Padres' signing of Ian Kinsler on Friday, AJ Cassavell of MLB.com reports.
Urias was expected to start the 2019 season as the club's starting second baseman, but his role is a little muddled now that Kinsler is on the team. Urias was groomed at both middle infield spots throughout his time in the Padres' minor leagues, though Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic added that the team still views him at the keystone while envisioning Kinsler at third base. Either way, he should be penciled into an everyday starting role unless the club elects to keep him in Triple-A for the start of the season to gain an extra year of control.
Ian Kinsler BOS 2B
Padres' Ian Kinsler: Heads to San Diego6h ago
Kinsler inked a two-year, $8 million deal with the Padres on Friday, Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reports.
Per Rosenthal, the contract includes a club option for a third season. Kinsler will provide San Diego with some depth at the second base position alongside Luis Urias, who made his major-league debut this past September. The club could choose to slide Urias over to shortstop and begin the year with both players manning the middle infield spots, though Rosenthal added that the club would like to place Kinsler at third base while keeping Urias as the everyday second baseman. Kinsler earned a World Series ring with the Red Sox in 2018 after being acquired from the Angels before the trade deadline. Across 128 games split between the two teams, he slashed just .240/.301/.380 with 14 home runs, 48 RBI and 16 stolen bases. Kinsler's .681 OPS was the worst mark of his career.
James McCann DET C
White Sox's James McCann: Signs with White Sox8h ago
McCann agreed to a one-year, $2.5 million contract with the White Sox on Friday, Jeff Passan of Yahoo Sports reports.
McCann will provide some additional catching depth on Chicago's roster behind Welington Castillo after the team traded away Omar Narvaez two weeks ago. During 118 games with the Tigers this past season, McCann hit just .220/.267/.314 with eight home runs and 39 RBI after having a solid season at the dish in 2017. The 28-year-old should only be considered as a fringe option in two-catcher leagues heading into spring training.
Trevor May MIN SP
Twins' Trevor May: Set to remain in bullpen1d ago
May will be used as a reliever in 2019 and will not move to the rotation, Twins Chief Baseball Officer Derek Falvey told the Minneapolis Star Tribune.
May returned after missing a season due to Tommy John surgery and showed increased velocity on his fastball (94.1 mph average) and an improved strikeout rate (12.8 K/9) once he returned to the majors in August. He converted all three save chances when used in the closer role the final week, and could be in the closer mix this spring if the Twins don't sign an established closer in free agency.
Mason Plumlee DEN PF
Nuggets' Mason Plumlee: Starting again Friday6m ago
Plumlee is starting at power forward Friday against the Thunder, T.J. McBride of Mile High Sports reports.
Plumlee will get the nod for the second straight game following an impressive performance Monday against the Grizzlies. With Paul Millsap (toe) likely sidelined for 4-to-6 weeks, Plumlee has been the early beneficiary within Denver's rotation, although Trey Lyles is also expected to receive more playing time with Millsap on the shelf.
Fred VanVleet TOR PG
Raptors' Fred VanVleet: Starts again Friday29m ago
VanVleet will draw another spot start at point guard Friday against Portland, Eric Smith of Sportsnet 590 The Fan reports.
With Kyle Lowry ruled out due to back spasms, VanVleet will benefit from the start and likely an increase in minutes. In games this season where Lowry hasn't played, VanVleet has averaged 35.5 minutes over four matchups.
Frank Ntilikina NY PG
Knicks' Frank Ntilikina: Will not return Friday33m ago
Ntilikina will not return to Friday's game against the Hornets due to sprained right ankle, Chris Iseman of The Bergen Record reports.
Ntilikina provided three points (1-4 FG, 1-2 3PT, 1-2 3PT), three rebounds, one assist, one block and two steals across 15 minutes before leaving the contest. The severity of the issue is not known at this time, but his status for Sunday's matchup with the Pacers is certainly up in the air. Expect an update on his status once the Knicks provide more information.
Kyle Lowry TOR PG
Raptors' Kyle Lowry: Out Friday35m ago
Lowry (thigh) has been ruled out for Friday's game against the Trail Blazers, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.
Lowry was a surprising addition to Toronto's injury report, and although he was initially listed as questionable, he's been officially been declared out due reports of both a thigh bruise and back spasms. Fred VanVleet figures to draw the start at point guard with Lowry on the shelf.
Kawhi Leonard TOR SF
Raptors' Kawhi Leonard: Cleared to play1h ago
Leonard (hip) will take the court Friday against Portland, Eric Smith of Sportsnet 590 The Fan reports.
Leonard will return to action after missing Toronto's previous two matchups due to a bruised right hip. He'll presumably rejoin the starting lineup and handle his normal workload.
Anthony Stolarz PHI G
Flyers' Anthony Stolarz: Facing off against Edmonton1h ago
Stolarz will get the road start Friday versus the Oilers.
Stolarz was lit up for six goals by the Flames in his last start, including two in in the final 1:08 of regulation and one in overtime. He'll have to overcome his late-game meltdown with the Oilers on the docket. Edmonton has won seven of its last nine games and averaged 3.1 goals per contest in that span.
Joel Edmundson STL D
Blues' Joel Edmundson: Not ready to play2h ago
Edmundson (upper body) will sit out of Friday's game versus the Avalanche, Lou Korac of NHL.com reports.
Edmundson was considered a game-time call but will miss his second straight game and fourth of the season. The 25-year-old was struggling before his absence, going minus-7 in four games and failing to record a point.
Jake Allen STL G
Blues' Jake Allen: Facing off against Colorado2h ago
Allen will start in the home goal for Friday's game versus the Avalanche, Lou Korac of NHL.com reports.
Allen will make his fifth straight start, as he posted a 2-1-1 record and .914 save percentage in the previous four outings. He was superb in his last game against the Avs, steering away 27 of 29 shots and winning in overtime. That shows Allen's upside, but he still carries plenty of risk since Colorado ranks third in the league with 3.61 goals per game.
Christian Jaros OTT D
Senators' Christian Jaros: Scratched Friday2h ago
Jaros (undisclosed) won't play in Friday's game versus the Red Wings, Dana Wakiji of the Red Wings' official site reports.
Jaros will miss his fourth straight game. The Senators will roll with seven defenesemen in his absence, allowing Erik Burgdoerfer to enter the lineup.
Micheal Ferland CAR LW
Hurricanes' Micheal Ferland: Absent from Friday's lineup2h ago
Ferland (upper body) won't play in Friday's game versus the Capitals, Michael Smith of the Hurricanes' official site reports.
Ferland missed four games with a concussion earlier in December, and when he returned Dec. 11 versus the Maple Leafs he was forced out in the first period and will now miss his second straight game. Warren Foegele will work in the top six in Ferland's place.
Henrik Lundqvist NYR G
Rangers' Henrik Lundqvist: Starting against 'Yotes3h ago
Lundqvist will start Friday's home game versus the Coyotes, Mike Ashmore of The Trentonian reports
The King is coming off a loss to Tampa Bay in his most recent start, one that saw the Rangers netminder allow five goals on 35 shots. He'll look to shut the door on Arizona who've struggled offensively this season and currently average just 2.53 goals per contest. Friday's game will be Lundqvist's first time seeing the Coyotes this season.
