Kwon Alexander TB MLB
Buccaneers' Kwon Alexander: Suffers ACL tear5m ago
Alexander (knee) was diagnosed Monday with a torn ACL, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.
The 2015 fourth-round pick is in the final season of his rookie contract, sitting on 45 tackles (34 solo), a sack and two forced fumbles through six games. With Alexander out for the rest of the season, Adarius Taylor is the top candidate to handle a regular role alongside Lavonte David on the second level of Tampa Bay's struggling defense. Devante Bond and/or Jack Cichy may also be needed for more snaps.
Terrell Suggs BAL LB
Ravens' Terrell Suggs: Logs another sack Sunday7m ago
Suggs recorded three tackles (all solo), including a sack, in Sunday's loss to New Orleans.
Suggs has recorded a sack in three consecutive weeks and is up to 5.5 on the season. Despite turning 36 less than two weeks ago he's still a force when it comes to rushing the passer. He'll aim to maintain his consistently strong play in Week 8, when Baltimore faces off against Carolina.
Adrian Clayborn NE DE
Patriots' Adrian Clayborn: Logs sack Sunday12m ago
Clayborn recorded two tackles (both solo), including a sack, in Sunday's win over the Bears.
Clayborn's sack was his first of the season. He saw the field on 40 percent of New England's defensive snaps. On the season he hasn't warranted consideration as an IDP. He'll look to maintain his strong play from Sunday into Week 8 when the Patriots head to Buffalo to take on the Bills.
Kyle Juszczyk SF FB
49ers' Kyle Juszczyk: Targeted three times in loss13m ago
Juszczyk finished with one carry for minus-five yards and caught two of three passes for 18 yards in Sunday's 39-10 loss to the Rams.
With at least two targets in every game this season, Juszczyk touches the ball more frequently than most fullbacks around the league, but his fantasy upside remains fairly low outside of deep PPR formats. He's only surpassed 50 receiving yards in two of the 49ers' seven games and has found the end zone just once.
Patrick Chung NE SS
Patriots' Patrick Chung: Posts seven tackles Sunday15m ago
Chung recorded seven tackles (six solo) and a pass defensed in Sunday's win over Chicago.
Chung put up his second highest tackle total of the season in a back and forth game against the Bears. He'll look to continue the strong play in Week 8 when New England takes on the Bills.
Adrian Colbert SF FS
49ers' Adrian Colbert: Suffers right ankle injury17m ago
Colbert was diagnosed with a right ankle injury after exiting Sunday's 39-10 loss to the Rams in the third quarter, Cam Inman of The San Jose Mercury News reports.
Colbert picked up the injury when he collided with teammate Ahkello Witherspoon while both were vying for a potential interception early in the second half. The free safety played 34 defensive snaps before departing, finishing with one tackle and one pass breakup.
Clayton Kershaw LAD SP
Dodgers' Clayton Kershaw: Expected to pitch Game 113h ago
Kershaw will likely take the hill for Game 1 of the World Series against the Red Sox on Tuesday, Bill Plunkett of the Orange County Register reports.
Kershaw closed out Game 7 of the NLCS on Saturday against Milwaukee, and if all goes according to plan, he'll take the hill in Boston to kick off the World Series. "He's actually going to throw and do some working out (Sunday) just to make sure he can do it and he feels good enough. We're hopeful but it's not definitive yet." stated manager Dave Roberts. "We're not locked in yet. But it's going to be either Game 1 or Game 2." If Kershaw does end up working the first game of the Series, Hyun-Jin Ryu would likely pitch Game 2, followed by Walker Buehler in Game 3 and Rich Hill in Game 4.
Steven Wright BOS RP
Red Sox's Steven Wright: Still hopeful to make World Series roster1d ago
Wright (knee) is scheduled to throw a simulated game and go through defensive drills Sunday, Pete Abraham of The Boston Globe reports.
The Boston knuckleballer did not appear in the ALCS after injuring his knee in the ALDS. However, it seems like he's nearing a return after working out with his injured knee a few times. How Wright's injury responds to Sunday's workout will likely give a clearer picture of his availability for the World Series, though things are very much up in the air at this point.
Clayton Kershaw LAD SP
Dodgers' Clayton Kershaw: Expected to pitch in Game 72d ago
Kershaw is expected to appear out of the bullpen at some point in Game 7 of the NLCS against the Brewers on Saturday, Tim Healey of Newsday reports.
It's unclear when or how long Kershaw will pitch, but he'll have had two days to rest since last pitching Wednesday, so he should be able to throw at least an inning or two, the equivalent of a typical bullpen session. He's pitched out of the bullpen on short rest in winner-take-all games in each of the last two seasons, recording the final two outs as the Dodgers got past the Nationals in the NLDS in 2016 and pitching four scoreless innings in Game 7 of last year's World Series against the Astros.
Jose Altuve HOU 2B
Astros' Jose Altuve: Battled through avulsion fracture2d ago
Altuve's knee injury which caused him trouble throughout the season was an avulsion fracture, Brian McTaggart of MLB.com reports.
An avulsion fracture occurs when a small piece of bone attached to a ligament or tendon gets pulled away from the rest of the bone. He had surgery to fix the problem Friday and is expected to be fully recovered by the start of spring training. The second baseman's numbers took a step back across the board following his MVP campaign in 2017, with his slash line falling from .346/.410/.547 to a still excellent .315/.385/.449. His homers dropped from 24 to 13, while he stole 17 bases after swiping 32 bags the season before. Given the severity of his knee injury, however, the dip appears to be very understandable, and there's reason to believe he'll bounce back next season.
Chris Sale BOS SP
Red Sox's Chris Sale: Recovered from illness2d ago
Sale is feeling better Saturday after battling an illness during the ALCS, Jason Mastrodonato of the Boston Herald reports.
Sale was hospitalized and scratched from his scheduled start for Game 5 of the ALCS, though he would have started Game 6 if necessary. It appears that he should have no issues by Game 1 of the World Series on Tuesday.
Ike Anigbogu IND C
Pacers' Ike Anigbogu: Assigned to G-League7m ago
Anigbogu was reassigned to the Fort Wayne Mad Ants on Monday.
Anigbogu will head to the team's G-League affiliate after appearing in just one of the first three games of the season, recording one block and one rebound across three minutes. The second year big man appeared in 11 games as a rookie, averaging 1.2 points and 0.8 rebounds across 2.7 minutes.
Marcus Morris BOS PF
Celtics' Marcus Morris: Questionable with knee soreness15m ago
Morris is listed as questionable for Monday's game against the Magic with left knee soreness, Jared Weiss of The Athletic reports.
It's unclear when Morris picked up the injury. Look for his status to clear up closer to tip. If the 29-year-old is ultimately held out, look for Jayson Tatum, Semi Ojeleye and Daniel Theis to benefit from increased run. It's worth noting that Morris missed extended time near the start of last season with an issue to the same knee.
Ben Simmons PHI PG
76ers' Ben Simmons: Listed as questionable Tuesday21m ago
Simmons (back) is designated as questionable for Tuesday's game against the Pistons, Serena Winters of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports.
Simmons exited Saturday's game against Orlando with tightness in his back, and he was held out of practice Monday. While that's not the most encouraging of signs, the fact that he's carrying a questionable tag means the team is hoping he'll make progress by shootaround Tuesday morning. If Simmons is ultimately held out, T.J. McConnell and Landry Shamet would be in position to benefit. Simmons was limited to just eight minutes Saturday, a game in which Shamet and McConnell played 21 and 25 minutes, respectively, off the bench.
Courtney Lee NY SG
Knicks' Courtney Lee: Officially out Monday43m ago
Lee (neck) will not play Monday against Milwaukee, Steve Popper of The Record reports.
Lee is meeting with a specialist Monday who will take a closer look at his neck, which has kept him out of the first three games of the season. If all goes well, Lee could meet the team in Miami for Wednesday's game, but at this point it's unclear how realistic that is.
Kevin Knox NY SF
Knicks' Kevin Knox: Without firm return timetable45m ago
Knox (ankle) is without a firm return timetable, Mike Vorkunov of The Athletic reports.
The rookie tweaked his ankle Saturday night, and while an MRI revealed no structural damage, Knox has already been ruled out for the Knicks' next two games and could end up missing additional time. At Monday's practice, coach David Fizdale said that he does not know when Knox will return, and when asked if he'd be happy if Knox is back in two weeks, Fizdale responded with: "Yeah, that would be great. I hope it's a short amount of time." Due to the injury, Knox was limited to just four minutes of action Saturday, one day after he played a career-high 28 minutes and finished with 17 points on 7-of-14 shooting.
Jimmy Butler MIN SG
Timberwolves' Jimmy Butler: Will be back in lineup Monday1h ago
Butler will return to action Monday against the Pacers, Chris Hine of the Star Tribune reports.
Butler was held out of Saturday's game for "precautionary rest," but the expectation all along was that he'd only miss one contest. Expect Butler to return to the starting five Monday and play a full complement of minutes. In his last game Friday against Cleveland, Butler saw 36 minutes and finished with 33 points, seven rebounds, three assists and four steals.
Craig Anderson OTT G
Senators' Craig Anderson: Starting Tuesday4m ago
Anderson will get the start Tuesday versus the Bruins.
Anderson, 37, has had a hot start to the season, winning four games and posting a .920 save percentage in six starts. Boston comes in having lost three straight --- two in overtime --- with just five goals scored in those contests.
Semyon Varlamov COL G
Avalanche's Semyon Varlamov: Patrolling crease Monday20m ago
Varlamov will guard the cage against the Flyers on the road Monday, Sam Carchidi of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
Varlamov returns to the crease after a two-game stint on the bench in favor of Philipp Grubauer. While it's still early in the season, coach Jared Bednar appears to be looking at a goalie split this year and could bounce between the two netminders. The 30-year-old Varlamov has yet to lose in regulation this season, as he is 3-0-2 with a 1.77 GAA and will look to keep that streak alive in the City of Brotherly Love.
Fredrik Claesson NYR D
Rangers' Fredrik Claesson: Winds up on IR26m ago
Claesson (upper body) was placed on injured reserve (retroactive to Oct. 17), the NHL media site reports.
Claesson has yet to register a point in four games and will now miss more time with an injury. The Swede sat out Sunday's contest against the Flames with an upper-body ailment that seemingly popped up out of nowhere. The Rangers have yet to provide an update on Claesson's status going forward.
Jakob Silfverberg ANA LW
Ducks' Jakob Silfverberg: Moved to IR40m ago
According to the NHL's media site, Silfverberg (hand) has been placed on injured reserve, retroactive to Oct. 14.
The Ducks' forward has a broken finger but according to general manager, Bob Murray, Silfverberg plans to play through the injury. Even when he returns to the lineup, the Swedish forward's injury could limit his offensive effectiveness so benching him until he proves otherwise isn't the worst idea.
Anton Forsberg CHI G
Blackhawks' Anton Forsberg: Placed on waivers1h ago
Forsberg was placed on waivers Monday, Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet reports.
Forsberg has not played a single game this season and now that Corey Crawford is healthy and ready for regular action, this was a move that needed to be made by Chicago's front office. If Forsberg goes unclaimed, the 25-year-old netminder will report to AHL Rockford.
Seth Jones CLB D
Blue Jackets' Seth Jones: Will play Tuesday1h ago
Jones (knee) will return to the lineup for Tuesday's matchup with Arizona.
Jones will not only be making his 2018-19 debut, but is also expected to lineup on the second power-play unit. With the man advantage last season, the blueliner tallied 24 of his 57 points and averaged 2:42 of ice time. In order to activate Jones off injured reserve, the club will need to make a corresponding roster move with Adam Clendening or Dean Kukan likely bound for AHL Cleveland.
