      Bengals' Michael Johnson: Returns with sack
      1h ago

      Michael Johnson had three tackles (all solo) and a sack in Sunday's loss to the Packers.

      Johnson was questionable with a concussion he suffered in Week 1, but played 57 of 70 defensive snaps to lead the Cincinnati Bengals ' defensive line. Now clear of the concussion, the 27-year-old should play a vital role on Cincinnati's defense.

      Daniel Sorensen tallied eight tackles (six solo) and a pass defended in Sunday's win over the Chargers.

      Sorensen has seen his tackle total increase each week of the season so far. The Kansas City Chiefs ' starting strong safety will look to carry his momentum into Monday night's matchup against the Redskins.

      Carlos Dunlap made three tackles (all solo) and had one sack in Sunday's loss to the Packers.

      It was Dunlap's first sack of the season and he also had a pair of quarterback hits as the Cincinnati Bengals abused Aaron Rodgers behind a depleted offensive line. The veteran defensive end finally showed up after recording only five tackles across the first two games and will looks for another strong showing against the Falcons.

      Redskins' Josh Doctson: Snags 52-yard TD on SNF
      1h ago

      Josh Doctson caught one of two targets for 52 yards and a touchdown during the Washington Redskins ' 27-10 victory over the Raiders on Sunday.

      Doctson flashed his big-play upside Sunday night by leaping over Raiders CB David Amerson for a 52-yard scoring strike in the third quarter that essentially sealed the game for Washington. His usage wasn't enough to warrant immediate fantasy consideration, but the former first-rounder nonetheless reinserted himself into the conversation as someone to either stash away or keep an eye on down the road.

      Chris Smith made three tackles (two solo) and had 0.5 sack in Sunday's loss to the Packers.

      Smith didn't have as big an impact as one would hope on a day when the Cincinnati Bengals sacked Aaron Rodgers six times. The 25-year-old performed fairly well when on the field but played only 22 of 70 defensive snaps as Michael Johnson returned from a concussion.

      Redskins' Jamison Crowder: Efficient in Week 3 victory
      1h ago

      Jamison Crowder caught six of six targets for 52 yards during Sunday's 27-10 victory over the Raiders.

      Crowder was efficient with his targets Sunday, but he once again took a backseat to Chris Thompson as QB Kirk Cousins' preferred short-range target. Furthermore, he muffed a punt for the second time this season, which led to the Raiders' only touchdown of the night. It was a middling performance all things considered, and things don't get any easier next in Week 4 against a ball-hawking Chiefs secondary.

      Dodgers' Yasiel Puig: To return to lineup Tuesday

      Yasiel Puig will start Tuesday despite arriving late to the field Monday, Ken Gurnick of MLB.com reports.

      Manager Dave Roberts expressed frustration with Puig, but apparently his only punishment will be sitting Monday's game against San Diego. Perhaps the better news here is that the ankle tweak Puig sustained Saturday is no longer bothering him, as he was forced to miss Sunday's game because of it.

      Orioles' Tim Beckham: Awaiting fateful decision
      1h ago

      Tim Beckham will receive treatment on his injured hamstring Monday before the Baltimore Orioles decide whether he's day-to-day or needs to be shut down for the season, Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports reports.

      Since arriving via trade with the Rays at the non-waiver deadline, the shortstop has been the Orioles best hitter. Beckham has unexpectedly put himself in the thick of the offseason discussion topics, as the team will need to decide whether to make him the regular shortstop, a utility candidate or even a trade piece. Playing in his fourth MLB campaign at age 27, Beckham owns a .280/.330/.457 slash line with 22 home runs over 136 total games this year. He's cooled down considerably since August, and even if Beckham can play, he's likely to split time with veteran J.J. Hardy over the final stretch of games.

      Jose Alberto Martinez (thumb) received a cortisone shot Sunday and hopes to play this week, Jenifer Langosch of MLB.com reports.

      Martinez sprained his left thumb over the weekend, leaving his status for the remainder of the season up in the air. He's going to try and see if he can grip and swing a bat Tuesday, after which there should be a clearer idea about whether a return before the end of the season is in the cards. In the meantime, Matt Carpenter and Jedd Gyorko should continue to start at the corner-infield spots for the St. Louis Cardinals .

      Carter Capps will undergo surgery for thoracic outlet syndrome, A.J. Cassavell of MLB.com reports Monday.

      Capps is a promising reliever with big-time velocity when he's on, but he has now tossed just 12.1 innings in the past two seasons as injuries have kept him grounded. The San Diego Padres are hopeful he will be healthy for spring training next season.

      Orioles' Chance Sisco: Working toward big-league job

      Sisco, Chance 's future role with the Baltimore Orioles will depend on his defense, and the club was encouraged that the catcher threw out 41 percent of would-be base stealers after the All-Star break in Triple-A Norfolk, Jon Meoli of The Baltimore Sun reports.

      There's no questioning the top prospects offensive talents, but how Sisco can manage a rotation from behind the dish is still up for debate. The 22-year-old figures to be the O's routine catcher sooner rather than later, but Sisco may still need another year or two of minor-league seasoning before he's ready to take on full-time catching duties at the big-league level.

      Suns' T.J. Warren: Agrees to contract extension
      2h ago

      T.J. Warren and the Phoenix Suns have agreed on a four-year, $50M contract extension, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.

      Warren has seen a significant increase statistically in each of his first three seasons. While the addition of rookie small forward Josh Jackson, the No. 4 overall pick, put Warren's role with the club going forward in question, Monday's contract extension is cause for optimism. However, it is hard to envision him seeing much more than the 31.0 minutes per game he saw last season, so it remains to be seen if he can build on the 14.4 points, 5.1 rebounds, 1.2. steals, and 0.6 blocks he averaged. Still, the 24-year-old looks to be part of the Suns' plans for the future.

      Celtics' Marcus Morris: Not with Celtics to start training camp
      4h ago

      Marcus Morris will officially miss the start of training camp while standing trial for a 2015 assault case, Chris Forsberg of ESPN reports.

      Boston Celtics president of basketball operations Danny Ainge said on Monday at media day that the team continues to stay in touch with Morris and they remain hopeful that he'll be able to join the team following the conclusion of the trial. That means he won't be present for the start of training camp and could also miss some regular-season time depending on the result of the trial and/or a suspension by the league itself. Continue to monitor the situation moving forward, but if Morris does end up missing time to start the year, the Celtics could shift Gordon Hayward over to power forward and insert someone like Jaylen Brown or Jayson Tatum into the starting lineup at small forward. Otherwise, if the Celtics want to go a bit bigger, they could move Al Horford to power forward and use Aron Baynes as a starter at center.

      Bucks' Jabari Parker: Targeting February return
      4h ago

      Jabari Parker said Monday at the team's media day that he's targeting a return sometime in February, Scott Grodsky of CBS 58 in Milwaukee reports.

      While it hadn't been said aloud until Monday, the belief all along was that Parker and Milwaukee Bucks were targeting a return sometime near the All-Star break, which would give the forward slightly more than a calendar year to recover from his second torn ACL. Considering Parker's history, both sides will likely stress caution, and it's possible that Parker could face minutes limitations for several games upon his return. In Parker's absence, expect Mirza Teletovic, Thon Maker and Tony Snell to spend increased time at power forward, as was the case over the second half of last season. Prior to sustaining the injury, Parker had compiled averages of 20.1 points, 6.2 rebounds, 2.8 assists and 1.0 steals per game in 51 contests.

      Trail Blazers' Noah Vonleh: Out four-to-five weeks with shoulder strain

      Noah Vonleh confirmed Monday that he's dealing with a light shoulder strain and he expects to miss another four-to-five weeks, Joe Freeman of the Oregonian reports.

      This is just further confirmation that Vonleh will sit out training camp, as well as the first two weeks of the season. Once healthy, Vonleh will battle for minutes at power forward, but with the likes of Maruice Harkless, Al-Farouq Aminu, Zach Collins and Caleb Swanigan all battling for minutes at the position as well, it could be tough for Vonleh to even match the 17.1 minutes per game he averaged a season ago.

      Ed Davis (shoulder) has been cleared for practice and will be a full participant at the start of training camp Tuesday, Casey Holdahl of TrailBlazers.com reports.

      It was reported back in June that Davis had been cleared for on-court work and that he expected to be ready for training camp, so this latest news regarding Davis' availability for training camp comes as no surprise. Davis indicated during his media session that he wants to battle for the starting power forward role, though the likes of Maurice Harkless, Al-Farouq Aminu, Noah Vonleh and Zach Collins could all have something to say about that. Davis should also see plenty of time at center as a reserve option behind starter Jusuf Nurkic.

      Lakers' Brook Lopez: Will be limited to start training camp
      5h ago

      Brook Lopez is dealing with back spasms and will be limited to start training camp, Bill Oram of the Orange County Register reports.

      Lopez, who was dealt from the Nets to the Los Angeles Lakers this offseason, is not necessarily getting off to the best start with his new organization, as he's already dealing with back spasms. While both Lopez and coach Luke Walton expect him to take part in training camp, Lopez will start out as a limited participant and then be evaluated on a day-to-day basis. Still, it doesn't appear Lopez is in danger of missing any regular-season action and he's expected to open the season as the starting centerr, though it will be a situation to monitor moving forward. If Lopez does miss any time, Ivica Zubac would likely be the main beneficiary.

      Brayden McNabb registered one shot on goal against Anaheim in a 4-2 preseason defeat.

      Although McNabb was limited offensively, he still collected four hits and blocked one shot. The 26-year-old is one of the more experienced defenseman on Las Vegas, and should see an uptick from his 15:04 average ice time he logged in the 2016-17 season for Los Angeles.

      Griffin Reinhart recorded one assist in a 4-2 preseason loss to Anaheim on Sunday.

      The youngster not only provided a primary assist in the second period, but filled up the stat sheet logging two shots on goal, one blocked shot, and one takeaway. Reinhart only facilitated one assist in 29 games last season, so getting a point is an encouraging sign -- even if it was a preseason game. Reinhart will likely be given a third-line role for Las Vegas during the 2017-18 season.

      Even though the 25-year-old didn't capitalize on his 6:29 of power-play time, he still recorded two blocked shots and two shots on goal. The Canadian also recorded a team-high 25:56 of time on ice, an encouraging sign for the 2017-18 season. Fowler will likely slot into a first-line pairing with Sami Vatanen, and a 40-point year is certainly feasible.

      Charlie Coyle was held off of the scoresheet in Sunday's 5-1 preseason loss to Colorado.

      Although Coyle didn't register any points Sunday, he still logged three hits and had one shot on goal. After recording a career high 56 points in the 2016-17 season, Coyle is one of the more promising young forwards in Minnesota. If the 25-year-old can eliminate the cold streaks that plagued him in the 2016-17 season, he has a great chance of eclipsing the 60-point mark for the first time in his career.

      Semyon Varlamov quieted Minnesota's offense Sunday, stopping 28 of 29 shots in the 5-1 preseason win.

      Only a power-play goal by Marcus Foligno solved Varlamov, as he looked sharp in his second game of the preseason. However, Colorado signed Jonathan Bernier in the offseason, and Varlamov could very well start less than the 55 to 60 game workload he's been given in previous seasons.

      Wild's Steve Michalek: Gives up five goals

      Steve Michalek stopped 17 of 22 shots Sunday, leading to a 5-1 preseason loss to Colorado.

      Sunday just wasn't Michalek's day, giving up two goals in the first four minutes on the ice. The outing was even more discouraging when you take into account Michalek is battling Niklas Svedberg -- who made 17 of 17 saves before Michalek entered the game -- and Alex Stalock for the backup goaltending spot under Devan Dubnyk. Michalek played 31 games for AHL Iowa last year, and it's seeming likely he'll have a similar job for the 2017-18 season.
