Trey Burton CHI TE
Bears' Trey Burton: Not practicing Wednesday1m ago
Burton (calf) is not participating in Wednesday's practice, Kevin Fishbain of The Athletic reports.
Burton is nursing a calf injury sustained during Sunday's 20-13 win over the Lions. The veteran tight end hasn't recorded a catch in two consecutive contests. In the event that Burton were forced to miss any time, Adam Shaheen, Ben Braunecker and J.P. Holtz would be candidates to play expanded roles on offense.
David Montgomery CHI RB
Bears' David Montgomery: Limited by ankle issue3m ago
Montgomery was limited at Wednesday's practice due to an ankle injury.
Since seeing a season-low four touches Week 7 against the Saints, Montgomery has bounced back over the last three games, racking up 65 touches for 283 yards and three TDs. With the lead role locked down ahead of change-of-pace back Tarik Cohen, Montgomery has become the most consistent option in the Bears offense, but the aforementioned health concern could throw a wrench into that development.
Miles Brown ARI NT
Cardinals' Miles Brown: Joins active roster4m ago
Brown was promoted to the Cardinals' active roster Wednesday.
Brown is expected to take defensive end Zach Thomas' spot on Arizona's roster. Thomas has been dealing with a neck issue that the team feels is serious enough to end his season. Meanwhile, Brown has appeared in three games with the Cardinals earlier this season and recorded two tackles.
Ramon Foster PIT G
Steelers' Ramon Foster: Ready for TNF11m ago
Foster (concussion) does not carry an injury tag for Thursday's divisional tilt against Cleveland, Missi Matthews of the Steelers' official site reports.
Foster sat out Pittsburgh's last two contests due to a lingering head injury, but he's now managed to fully clear the league's five-step concussion protocol. The 33-year-old veteran is on track to draw his usual start at left guard versus the Browns on Thursday.
Adrian Peterson WAS RB
Redskins' Adrian Peterson: Keeping No. 1 role12m ago
Interim coach Bill Callahan said Peterson remains the No. 1 running back on the Redskins' depth chart, Rhiannon Walker of The Athletic reports.
Peterson had free rein out of the Redskins' backfield in the four contests before the team's Week 10 bye, averaging 20 touches and 112.5 yards from scrimmage per game. However, the offense managed just two touchdowns during that stretch, and neither of them went to Peterson. With Derrius Guice completing his stint on injured reserve, Peterson seems poised to yield some work to the second-year back. Still, Peterson's status as the top option should ensure he maintains a steady workload moving forward.
Donte' Deayon LAR CB
Rams' Donte Deayon: Promoted to active roster13m ago
On Wednesday, Deayon was promoted to the Rams' active roster.
Darious Williams (knee) could miss LA's Week 11 game against Chicago, a reality that prompted the team to promote Deayon. The 25-year-old adds depth to the Rams' secondary but isn't likely to provide any meaningful return in IDP formats.
Teoscar Hernandez TOR CF
Blue Jays' Teoscar Hernandez: Dabbling at first base14m ago
General manager Ross Atkins said Tuesday that Hernandez has been working out at first base during the offseason, Ben Nicholson-Smith of Sportsnet.ca reports.
Hernandez has exclusively played the outfield during his nine-year professional career, but he looks like he'll at least be in line to experiment at first base during spring training in any attempt to add some versatility. Atkins also said that Hernandez has been taking grounders at second base, but the 27-year-old is being viewed as more of an emergency option at that position. Hernandez delivered some interesting counting stats -- namely, 26 home runs and six steals -- in his 464 plate appearances a season ago, but his .230/.306/.472 slash line (102 wRC+) barely made him a league-average contributor from a real-life standpoint.
Bo Bichette TOR SS
Blue Jays' Bo Bichette: No more concussion symptoms2h ago
Bichette's offseason is going well, and he's no longer experiencing concussion symptoms, Ben Nicholson-Smith of Sportsnet.ca reports.
Bichette's strong rookie season ended prematurely in mid-September after he was hit in the head by a pitch. He finished his first big-league campaign with a .311/.358/.571 line in 46 games, homering 11 times and doubling 18 more. He's expected to progress to full workouts soon and should have plenty of time to get up to full speed by the start of spring training.
Kade Scivicque DET C
Tigers' Kade Scivicque: Re-signs with Detroit4h ago
Scivicque re-signed Tuesday with the Tigers on a minor-league contract, Evan Woodbery of MLive.com reports.
The 26-year-old backstop split the 2019 season between Double-A Erie and Triple-A Toledo, slashing .295/.338/.488 between the two levels. He'll provide some organizational depth behind the plate in the high minors again in 2020, but his lack of a 40-man roster spot is a barrier to him earning a callup to the big leagues.
Seranthony Dominguez PHI RP
Phillies' Seranthony Dominguez: Set for normal offseason19h ago
Dominguez (elbow) will have a normal offseason and will be ready for the start of spring training, Meghan Montemurro of The Athletic reports.
Dominguez went down with the UCL injury in his right elbow in early June, but he was able to avoid any type of surgery and is now on track for the 2020 season. The 24-year-old hit mid-to-upper 90s with his fastball and was throwing breaking balls off the mound before shutting things down to prep for the offseason. The hard-throwing righty figures to be in the late-inning mix entering spring training for the Phillies.
Sean Newcomb ATL RP
Braves' Sean Newcomb: Will compete for rotation spot20h ago
Newcomb will stretch out this offseason to compete for a spot in Atlanta's starting rotation in spring training, David O'Brien of The Athletic reports.
The left-hander began 2019 in the Braves' starting rotation, but he was shipped to Triple-A after surrendering six runs in 12.1 innings over his first three starts. Newcomb returned to the majors in May and pitched out of the bullpen the rest of the season -- though he did make one spot start -- and delivered a 2.89 ERA, 1.20 WHIP and 60:21 K:BB across 56 frames as a reliever. Whether the Braves make any free-agent acquisitions will also factor into Newcomb's chances of cracking the 2020 rotation.
Franklyn Kilome NYM RP
Mets' Franklyn Kilome: Rehab progressing well21h ago
Kilome (elbow) is progressing well in his rehab from Tommy John surgery in October of 2018, and he is expected to be healthy for 2020, Tim Healey of Newsday reports.
The 24-year-old has yet to make it past the Double-A level, but he will likely be able to have a full season of work in 2020 barring any setbacks. General manager Brodie Van Wagenen said Tuesday that he is unsure whether Kilome will serve as a starter or reliever once he returns from his surgery. Kilome recorded a 4.18 ERA with a 125:61 K:BB in 26 starts at the Double-A level in 2018.
Caleb Martin CHA SF
Hornets' Caleb Martin: Recalled from G League15m ago
Martin was recalled from the G League ahead of Wednesday's matchup against the Grizzlies.
With Dwayne Bacon (knee) expected to miss Wednesday's game, it's possible Martin sees some action. He's appeared in three games, averaging 1.7 points, 1.3 rebounds and 1.0 assist in 8.3 minutes.
Myles Turner IND PF
Pacers' Myles Turner: Labeled day-to-day30m ago
Coach Nate McMillan called Turner (ankle) day-to-day earlier this week after the center was able to take part in 4-on-4 drills during practice, Scott Agness of The Athletic reports.
Sidelined since Oct. 30 with a right ankle sprain, Turner is making progress in his recovery, but he'll likely need to advance to full-contact, 5-on-5 scrimmaging until the Pacers give him the green light to play. The center could gain clearance for the weekend if he's able to step up his activity over the next two days, though he would almost certainly sit out at least one half of the Pacers' upcoming back-to-back set. The Pacers will return to action Friday in Houston before returning home to host the Bucks on Saturday.
Aaron Holiday IND PG
Pacers' Aaron Holiday: Makes scoring impact in start35m ago
Holiday tallied 17 points (6-10 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 3-3 FT), four assists, three rebounds and two steals in 31 minutes Tuesday in the Pacers' 111-85 win over the Thunder.
Making his fourth straight start for the injured Jeremy Lamb (ankle), Holiday turned in one of his better all-around performances of the season. He's now averaging 13.0 points (on 52.8 percent shooting from the field), 3.3 assists, 3.0 rebounds, 2.0 triples and 1.3 steals in 29.5 minutes per game since moving up to the top unit, but the string of solid performances will likely come to an end once Lamb is back in the fold. That could happen as soon as Friday's game in Houston.
Paul Millsap DEN PF
Nuggets' Paul Millsap: Hits double figures in fourth straight38m ago
Millsap supplied 19 points (6-11 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 5-6 FT), six rebounds, two assists and one block in 30 minutes Tuesday in the Nuggets' 125-121 loss to the Hawks.
Though Millsap's production in the defensive categories continues to trend downward, his scoring (12.8 points per game) and rebounding (6.1 per game) remains roughly on par with his marks from his first two seasons in Denver. Millsap has now reached double figures in scoring in four straight games and six times in the last seven contests, converting at a 45.5 percent clip from the field and 55.6 percent clip from three-point range over that stretch.
Reggie Bullock NY SG
Knicks' Reggie Bullock: To be re-evaluated in December41m ago
Bullock (back) will be re-evaluated in early December.
Bullock hasn't been able to participate in any basketball-related activity since undergoing back surgery in July. It's reported though that the guard is progressing quite well in his rehab assignments and has been medically cleared to return to practice Wednesday and participate in non-contact drills.
Jamal Murray DEN PG
Nuggets' Jamal Murray: Carves up Hawks in loss42m ago
Murray posted 18 points (7-16 FG, 0-4 3Pt, 4-4 FT), eight assists, three rebounds, one steal and one block in 33 minutes Tuesday in the Nuggets' 125-121 loss to the Hawks.
Though he failed to connect from three-point range for just the second time all season, Murray continued to shine offensively. Over the past five games, Murray is averaging 19.6 points (on 47 percent shooting from the field), 5.4 assists, 4.6 rebounds, 1.4 triples and 1.2 steals in 34.0 minutes.
Pavel Francouz COL G
Avalanche's Pavel Francouz: Suffers head injury10m ago
Francouz is dealing with a head injury and could face an extended absence, Adrian Dater of ColoradoHockeyNow.com reports.
Francouz was run over by Winnipeg's Mark Scheifele in Tuesday's matchup and was forced to leave the game. For now, it appears Adam Werner will fill in versus Edmonton on Thursday as Philipp Grubauer (lower body) remains on injured reserve.
Jalen Chatfield VAN D
Canucks' Jalen Chatfield: Reassigned to minors25m ago
Chatfield was sent down to AHL Utica on Wednesday.
Chatfield served as a healthy scratch in each of the previous four contests, so it shouldn't come as a surprise to see him bound for the minors. The Michigan native likely will only find himself back with the Canucks if injuries pop up on the blue line and should be expected to finish out the year in the minors.
Tyler Graovac VAN C
Canucks' Tyler Graovac: Earns call-up39m ago
Graovac was brought up from the minors Wednesday.
Graovac hasn't appeared in an NHL game since 2017-18 when he was with the Capitals. The 26-year-old center's potential inclusion in the lineup versus Dallas on Thursday will depend on the healthy of Jay Beagle (undisclosed) and Brandon Sutter (lower body).
Zack MacEwen VAN C
Canucks' Zach MacEwen: Promoted from minors43m ago
MacEwan was recalled from AHL Utica on Wednesday.
With both Brandon Sutter (lower body) and Jay Beagle (undisclosed) both dealing with injuries, the Canucks added some additional forward depth with MacEwan and Tyler Graovac. The 23-year-old MacEwen logged four games for Vancouver last season, in which he recorded one assist, two shots and four hits. Once the team gets healthy, the center will almost certainly be shipped back to the minors for the rest of the year.
Roman Polak DAL D
Stars' Roman Polak: Trending toward Thursday return45m ago
Polak (upper body) won't play Wednesday against the Flames but is expected to return for Thursday's clash against the Canucks, Sean Shapiro of The Athletic reports.
After fracturing his sternum during the season opener against Boston, Polak will miss his 18th straight game Wednesday. His return seems imminent, though, and the 33-year-old will likely bump Joel Hanley from the lineup. Polak doesn't provide much fantasy aptitude, but he features a valuable defensive style that produced 191 hits and 152 blocked shots last year.
Mattias Janmark DAL LW
Stars' Mattias Janmark: Won't play in next two games1h ago
Janmark (lower body) was already ruled out against Calgary on Wednesday, but will now miss Thursday's clash with Vancouver as well, Sean Shapiro of The Athletic reports.
In his previous outing, Janmark ended a 15-game goal drought with his second marker of the season. The Swede will miss both ends of the Stars' back-to-back, but could still be an option versus Edmonton on Saturday. With seven points in 18 appearances this year, the 26-year-old remains on track for a fourth consecutive 25-point campaign as long as he isn't sidelined long term.
