Buccaneers' Kendell Beckwith: Will start Sunday11h ago
Kendell Beckwith will start at middle linebacker against the Vikings on Sunday, Alex Marvez of Sirius XM NFL Radio reports.
Beckwith first transitioned to the middle when Kwon Alexander (hamstring) exited in Week 2, and will remain there with the latter ruled out for this week. The rookie third-round pick impressed in his professional debut against the Bears and will hope to continue that trend in Week 3.
Bradley Roby DEN FS
Broncos' Bradley Roby: Expects to play Sunday11h ago
Bradley Roby (foot) was not present on the Denver Broncos ' injury reports Sunday, Andrew Mason of the Broncos' official site reports.
Roby was wearing a walking boot and did not participate at practice Wednesday but was not on Friday's injury report. Head coach Vance Joseph indicated that the 25-year-old's status for Sunday was never in doubt as the boot and practice limitations were simply precautionary.
Brandon Linder JAC C
Jaguars' Brandon Linder: Expected to play Sunday11h ago
Brandon Linder (knee) is expected to play against the Ravens on Sunday.
Linder worked his way up to a full participant at practice Friday after sitting out earlier in the week. The 25-year-old's knee injury was apparently minor as he also avoided the questionable tag, and should be a full go against the Ravens on Sunday.
D.J. Alexander SEA LB
Seahawks' D.J. Alexander: Questionable for Sunday11h ago
D.J. Alexander (hamstring) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Titans, John Boyle of the Seattle Seahawks ' official site reports.
Alexander did not participate in practice Thursday and Friday so his status for Sunday's game is murky at best. If the 25-year-old suits up he could see more snaps if Terence Garvin (shoulder) is unable to play, but otherwise would likely revert to his role as a reserve linebacker and special teams contributor.
Justin Houston KC OLB
Chiefs' Justin Houston: Expected to play Sunday11h ago
Justin Houston (illness) is expected to play against the Chargers on Sunday.
Houston first appeared on the injury report Thursday and did not practice, but was a full participant Friday. The veteran linebacker avoided the questionable tag as well, so the Kansas City Chiefs are apparently fairly confident he'll be ready for Sunday.
Parker Ehinger KC G
Chiefs' Parker Ehinger: Doubtful for Week 311h ago
Parker Ehinger (knee) is listed as doubtful for Sunday's game against the Chargers.
Ehinger has practiced on a limited basis each of the past two weeks but has received the doubtful tag heading into both games. Given that he's still practiced lately the injury doesn't seem overly severe, but it's difficult to gauge his likelihood to play beyond this Sunday.
Jordan Lyles SD SP
Padres' Jordan Lyles: Fans seven in Friday's loss16m ago
Jordan Lyles (1-4) took the loss against the Rockies on Friday, giving up four runs on five hits -- including three home runs -- and two walks over six innings while striking out seven.
While it was a better performance from Lyles that his last outing Sept. 16 against his former team, when Colorado tagged him for seven runs in four innings at Coors Field, the end result was just the same. The journeyman righty and his 7.23 ERA will make one more start this season for the San Diego Padres in San Francisco on Friday.
Ian Desmond COL LF
Rockies' Ian Desmond: Displays power, speed Friday20m ago
Ian Desmond went 2-for-4 with a solo home run, a second run scored and a stolen base in Friday's 4-1 win over the Padres.
The homer was his first since mid-June and just his sixth of the season, as injuries have marred Desmond's first campaign with the Colorado Rockies . He's still chipped in 13 steals in 87 games to salvage some fantasy value, though, and his .290/.324/.452 slash line over the last nine games should keep him in the lineup as the team tries to secure a spot in the postseason.
Greg Holland COL RP
Rockies' Greg Holland: Racks up 41st save Friday24m ago
Greg Holland struck out two in a perfect ninth inning Friday to collect his 41st save of the season in a 4-1 win over the Padres.
He's a perfect 5-for-5 in September save chances, posting a 1.13 ERA, 0.50 WHIP and 8:2 K:BB in eight innings on the month. Holland has put his rough August firmly behind him, and he should get plenty of work over the final days of the regular season as the Colorado Rockies try to lock up a wild-card spot.
Jon Gray COL SP
Rockies' Jon Gray: Whiffs eight in Friday's win28m ago
Jon Gray (9-4) picked up the win over the Padres on Friday, allowing one run on five hits and a walk over six innings while striking out eight.
He extended his streak of starts in which he's given up three runs or fewer to 12, and Gray's 2.49 ERA, 1.12 WHIP and 75:16 K:BB in 72.1 innings over that stretch are the kind of ace-like numbers the Colorado Rockies were hoping for when they drafted the right-hander in the first round back in 2013. He'll make one more trip to the mound in the regular season Wednesday at home against the Marlins.
Corey Knebel MIL RP
Brewers' Corey Knebel: Availability Saturday uncertain32m ago
Corey Knebel allowed one earned run over two innings and took the loss Friday as the Milwaukee Brewers fell to the Cubs. He allowed two hits and posted a 2:3 K:BB in his appearance.
Knebel was needed for 34 pitches Friday -- his most since May 11 -- and he could not keep the Cubs off the basepaths, and ultimately the scoreboard. With Knebel testing the limits of his pitch count Friday and the Brewers and Cubs squaring off early Saturday afternoon, he may not be available out of the Brewers' bullpen. If the Brewers find themselves in a save situation, manager Craig Counsell could opt to go with Anthony Swarzak or Jeremy Jeffress instead.
Hector Rondon CHC RP
Cubs' Hector Rondon: Returns to action37m ago
Hector Rondon (elbow) threw a scoreless inning in Friday's victory over the Brewers.
Rondon's last appearance prior to Friday's was two weeks ago on the same day, but he did not show any signs of rust, keeping the Brewers off the basepaths and striking out two batters. He figures to factor into the late-inning mix in the Chicago Cubs ' bullpen the rest of the way.
Alan Williams PHO F
Suns' Alan Williams: Suffers partially torn meniscus15h ago
Alan Williams ' initial diagnosis has revealed he suffered a partially torn meniscus, Chris Haynes of ESPN.com reports.
Williams' timetable for return likely won't be determined until after his MRI on Saturday, though it's safe to assume he'll be out an extended period. As a result, other big men on the team such as Alex Len, Marquese Chriss and Dragan Bender could all see additional time at center. Though, the actual rotation at the position will probably be hammered out during training camp and the preseason.
Troy Daniels PHO G
Suns' Troy Daniels: Traded to Phoenix15h ago
Troy Daniels was traded to the Phoenix Suns from the Grizzlies on Friday along with a conditional 2018 second-round pick in exchange for a top-55 protected 2018 second-round pick, Shams Charania of The Vertical reports.
Daniels played a significant role on the Grizzlies last season, posting 8.2 points across 17.7 minutes per game on 38.9 percent shooting from beyond the arc. He'll be joining a Suns team devoid of significant shooting guard depth and will seemingly compete with Elijah Millsap for the No. 2 spot behind Devin Booker. That said, it doesn't seem likely he'll see a bump in workload meaningful enough to warrant fantasy ownership in most leagues, as developing Booker is the Suns' main objective at the position.
Alan Williams PHO F
Suns' Alan Williams: To undergo MRI Saturday15h ago
Alan Williams suffered an injury while landing on a teammate's foot during a workout Friday and will undergo an MRI on Saturday to determine the extent of the damage, Chris Haynes of ESPN.com reports.
While the full extent of Williams' injury is yet to be determined, the fact that the Phoenix Suns have decided an MRI is necessary doesn't bode particularly well. The big man notably ended 2016-17 on a high note, posting 11.4 points and 9.1 rebounds across 22.6 minutes per game after the All-Star break. If he's out for an extended period, Alex Len is likely the immediate candidate to absorb Williams' minutes. Marquese Chriss and Dragan Bender could also see time at center in smaller, quicker lineups.
Markieff Morris WAS F
Wizards' Markieff Morris: Will miss six-to-eight weeks following surgery19h ago
Markieff Morris (abdomen) is expected to miss six-to-eight weeks after undergoing successful surgery to repair a sports hernia.
The timeline puts Morris' return sometime around early-to-mid November. That said, he's still standing trial for felony assault charges -- a situation which could end in league discipline if he's found guilty, possibly extending his absence. In any event, the Washington Wizards will have to find a replacement starting power forward, with the most likely suitor being Otto Porter, who could slide one spot up in the lineup. That would create a void at small forward, which Kelly Oubre could fill nicely. The situation certainly puts Morris' fantasy value in flux, though assuming he's found innocent in the trial, he may only end up missing around 10 games.
Noah Vonleh POR F
Trail Blazers' Noah Vonleh: Likely to miss first two weeks of season20h ago
Noah Vonleh suffered a right shoulder strain during a pickup game at the Portland Trail Blazers ' practice facility and is expected to miss training camp, as well as likely the first two weeks of the regular season, Jason Quick of CSNNW.com reports.
Vonleh, while not a high-volume player, carved out a solid role in the team's rotation last season, averaging 17.1 minutes per game. He also started 41 of his 74 appearances, providing a solid defensive presence to begin games. Portland will now have to look elsewhere for help at the power forward slot to begin the season, likely turning to Al-Farouq Aminu or possibly deploying rookie Zach Collins.
Russell Westbrook OKC G
Thunder's Russell Westbrook: Has PRP injection in left knee22h ago
Russell Westbrook had a PRP injection in his left knee and will miss the first few days of training camp, Brett Dawson of The Oklahoman reports.
The news comes via GM Sam Presti, who stressed at the team's media day Friday that the injection is nothing serious and is unrelated to any of Westbrook's previous injuries. The expectation is that the reigning MVP will sit out the first few days of camp as a precaution, but Presti said Westbrook will log some action in preseason contests.
Robert Thomas STL C
Blues' Robert Thomas: Triggers goal lamp twice in exhibition win11h ago
Robert Thomas lit the lamp twice -- including a goal on the man advantage -- Friday in a 4-0 win over the Capitals.
Unless you happen to closely follow the St. Louis Blues and their prospects, Thomas' name may not ring a bell, but he became a Note with a first-round (20th overall) pick from this year's draft. In 2015-16, the right-shooting center added a mere 15 points in 40 regular-season games with OHL London, only to average a point per game over 66 matches last year. It could take a few years for Thomas to get settled into the NHL, but his performance Friday is nonetheless a terrific confidence booster.
Luke Kunin MIN C
Wild's Luke Kunin: Battling for roster spot11h ago
Luke Kunin is in the mix for a final spot on the Minnesota Wild roster, Michael Russo of The Athletic reports
He's likely battling Joel Eriksson Ek for the final roster spot. Despite playing in the first two preseason games, Kunin has just two shots on goal and no points. It would be surprising if the 19-year-old starts out in the NHL, as he looks to need more AHL seasoning after playing college hockey with the University of Wisconsin the past two years. In 2016-17, Kunin registered five goals with two helpers in 12 games for AHL Iowa. The 15th overall pick from the 2016 draft could be an impact player when he reaches the NHL.
Joel Eriksson Ek MIN C
Wild's Joel Eriksson Ek: Battling for roster spot11h ago
Joel Eriksson Ek , who is battling for a roster spot with Luke Kunin, will make his preseason debut Sunday, Michael Russo of The Athletic reports.
Eriksson Ek had an impressive rookie campaign with seven points in 15 NHL games, splitting time between the NHL and Farjestad in the Swedish Elite League. It would seem likely he'll make the final roster given his promise from last season, though he didn't play in the first two preseason games.
Alex Stalock MIN G
Wild's Alex Stalock: Impressive in first preseason game11h ago
Alex Stalock stopped all 21 shots for a shutout in Thursday's preseason win over Winnipeg.
Stalock is competing with Niklas Svedberg for the backup goalie role and began the preseason with an impressive outing. Starter Devan Dubnyk has averaged 66 games played over the last two seasons, however, so the backup goalie may not get many starts.
Andrew Shaw MON C
Canadiens' Andrew Shaw: Skates Friday11h ago
Andrew Shaw (neck) skated by himself Friday, Stu Cowan of the Montreal Gazette reports.
Friday's solo skating session was the first step taken by Shaw as he attempts to return from a neck injury suffered earlier this week.
Steven Stamkos TB C
Lightning's Steven Stamkos: Two helpers in preseason debut12h ago
Steven Stamkos picked up two assists against the Predators on Friday in his first preseason action this season.
The Bolts won 3-1 and Stammer looked great. "It was great to get back out there," said the center. "I was pretty anxious about it. It was a good start, something to build on." Stamkos' knee is fully healed and he should be back near the top of your draft list.
