  • Alex Collins SEA RB
    Seahawks' Alex Collins: Should be available next week
    9m ago

    Head coach Pete Carroll said after Sunday's victory over the 49ers that Collins (abdomen) should be able to play in next week's game against the Texans, Curtis Crabtree of Sports Radio 950 KJR Seattle reports.

    Collins sat out Sunday for the first time since Week 1, but that could be the extent of his absence, as Carroll added that the running back "needed a week off." Collins was expected to work behind at least Adrian Peterson and possibly another back or two had he suited up Sunday, so if he does return in Week 14 it seems unlikely it will be as the starter.

  • Kenny Golladay NYG WR
    Giants' Kenny Golladay: Plays through injury
    13m ago

    Golladay recorded three receptions on five targets for 37 yards in Sunday's 20-9 loss to the Dolphins.

    Golladay got off to a fast start, as he recorded all three of his receptions by the time's first drive of the second quarter. However, he wasn't able to retake the field until early in the second half after he suffered a rib injury. After the game, Golladay told the media that he underwent X-rays that revealed no fractures to his ribs, per Art Stapleton of The Bergen Record. While it appears that he avoided serious injury, it will be worth monitoring Golladay's practice status heading into a Week 14 matchup against the Chargers.

  • Marvin Jones JAC WR
    Jaguars' Marvin Jones: Held to two catches
    13m ago

    Jones caught two passes for 11 yards on three targets against the Rams on Sunday.

    It's been a difficult season for Jones and the Jaguars offense, and this matchup was one of the tougher ones on their schedule. Disappointing as it might be, Jones' numbers from Sunday can't be called surprising. While it's best to not get hopes too high with any component of the Jaguars passing game, their Week 14 matchup with the Titans is probably more favorable than the Rams were.

    Jaguars' Trevor Lawrence: Another bad game
    16m ago

    Lawrence completed 16 of 28 passes for 145 yards against the Rams on Sunday.

    Lawrence and the Jaguars offense tend to do nothing good even against defenses worse than this one, so a dreary outcome like this was to be expected against the Rams. Similarly, there's not much reason to hope for anything good when Lawrence and the Jaguars face the Titans in Week 14, though the matchup is arguably more favorable than the Rams were.

    49ers' Jeff Wilson: Exits with injury
    18m ago

    Wilson exited Sunday's loss to the Seahawks with an unspecified injury, according to Matt Barrows of The Athletic.

    It's not exactly clear when Wilson picked up the injury, but it likely contributed to him receiving zero touches in Sunday's contest. More about Wilson's status should be known when head coach Kyle Shanahan provides another update Monday.

  • Tua Tagovailoa MIA QB
    Dolphins' Tua Tagovailoa: Guides Dolphins to victory
    19m ago

    Tagovailoa completed 30 of his 41 pass attempts for 244 yards, two touchdowns and no interceptions in Sunday's 20-9 win over the Giants.

    Tagovailoa reached 40 pass attempts for the third time this season and for the first time since Week 7. He put up a disappointing yardage total by averaging only 6.0 yards per attempt despite being accurate with his passes. That was product of largely working in short areas of the field, as he had only one completion of more than 20 yards. However, Tagovailoa salvaged his performance with two a pair of touchdowns, one from five yards away and the other from two. Tagovailoa has proven to have a safe floor of production in recent weeks, though he has topped 300 passing yards only once on the campaign.

    Astros' Lance McCullers: Still not throwing
    8h ago

    McCullers (forearm) will start throwing in "about a month," Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle reports.

    McCullers suffered the injury to his throwing arm in mid-October and was unable to pitch in the the ALCS and World Series. In positive news, McCullers recently had an MRI that came back clean. Even so, it will be worth monitoring how McCullers is able to progress prior to spring training, which may dictate whether he is able to ramp up in time to begin the season on the mound.

    Kevin Cron: Moves from Japan to Korea
    23h ago

    Cron signed with the SSG Landers of the KBO on Friday, Jeeho Yoo of the Yonhap News Agency reports.

    Cron left MLB for Japan last offseason, though he failed to impress in 42 games for the Hiroshima Carp, hitting just .231/.270/.431 with six homers. He's still on the right side of 30, so it's possible a strong season following another step down the ladder will earn him looks from MLB clubs next winter, but he'll have to hit far better in Korea than he did in Japan if that's to happen.

  • Freddy Galvis PHI SS
    Freddy Galvis: Heading to Japan
    1d ago

    Galvis is expected to sign with the NPB's Fukuoka SoftBank Hawks, Yahoo Japan reports.

    While Galvis has never been confused for a star, he's better than most players who head overseas. The 32-year-old has spent most of his career as a low-end regular and looked like he was still capable of that in 2021, as his .242/.302/.407 slash line was good for a career-best 90 wRC+, a perfectly adequate number for a shortstop. Given the uncertainty that comes with MLB's lockout, however, it's likely he saw a guaranteed deal in Japan as far more appealing than waiting out the labor strife stateside, especially as he wasn't necessarily guaranteed a big-league deal once the situation is eventually resolved.

  • DJ Peters TEX CF
    DJ Peters: To play in KBO
    2d ago

    Peters is close to signing a contract with the Lotte Giants of the KBO, Daniel Kim of MBC Sports+ reports.

    As Kim outlines, playing in the KBO is a good option for players like Peters who just lost their spot on 40-man rosters, given the uncertainty of what lies ahead in the coming months. Peters is one of the more talented hitters to head to the KBO in recent years, and his massive raw power should allow him to put up gaudy numbers overseas before potentially returning stateside.

    Little was initially expected to miss at least a week after he sustained a sprained left ankle early last week, but he has a chance to return slightly ahead of schedule. If he's forced to miss another game, Tony Snell, Larry Nance and Ben McLemore would likely take on increased roles.
