    Phillies' Brandon Marsh: Lands on injured list
    2m ago

    Marsh (ankle/knee) was placed on the 10-day injured list Wednesday, retroactive to Aug. 17.

    Marsh suffered a left knee bruise and a left ankle sprain after making a leaping catch attempt at the wall Tuesday, and he'll now be out for at least the next week and a half. Bradley Zimmer was claimed off waivers by the Phillies and will provide another option in center field.

    Phillies' Bryce Harper: Goes on 60-day IL
    6m ago

    The Phillies transferred Harper (thumb) from the 10-day injured list to the 60-day IL on Thursday.

    Harper isn't dealing with any setback in his recovery from the surgery he underwent in late June for his fractured left thumb, but since he wasn't on track to return to the lineup at this time next week when he would have spent a full two months on the shelf, the Phillies opted to move him to the 60-day IL to open up a 40-man roster spot for waiver pickup Bradley Zimmer. Though Harper recently had his throwing program shut down and appears unlikely to be ready to play the outfield again this season while recovering from a torn ligament in his right elbow, he's still on track to rejoin the Phillies as a full-time designated hitter, likely on or around Sept. 1. He's scheduled to take another round of batting practice at some point this weekend, and if all goes well, he could head out on a minor-league rehab assignment as soon as next Tuesday.

    Rockies' Charlie Blackmon: Leaves with injury
    36m ago

    Blackmon was removed from Thursday's game against the Cardinals with an apparent leg injury, Patrick Saunders of The Denver Post reports.

    Blackmon appeared to tweak something while running out an infield hit during his lone plate appearance, and he was replaced in the field after remaining in the game for one more inning. The 36-year-old should be considered day-to-day until more information is available.

    Orioles' Jonathan Arauz: Nearing rehab assignment
    39m ago

    Arauz (finger) took part in infield work Thursday and could be ready to start a minor-league rehab assignment in the near future, Roch Kubatko of MASNSports.com reports.

    Arauz has resided on the 10-day injured list since July 26 with a sprained right middle finger. Once activated, the 24-year-old will likely fill a utility role for the Orioles and isn't expected to receive frequent starts.

  • Antonio Senzatela COL SP
    Rockies' Antonio Senzatela: Lifted with left leg injury
    44m ago

    Senzatela was removed in the second inning of his start Thursday against the Cardinals due to an apparent left knee injury, John Denton of MLB.com reports. He was charged with five earned runs on six hits and no walks while striking out two in 1.2 innings before departing.

    Senzatela suffered the injury when he attempted to make a play on Brendan Donovan's slow dribbler down the first-base line, which ultimately went for a run-scoring infield single. He looked to be in significant pain and required assistance off the field, suggesting a trip to the injured list could be in the forecast. The Rockies are likely to provide an updated diagnosis on Senzatela's injury and a potential timeline for his return later Thursday or Friday.

    White Sox's Luis Robert: Puts in full workout
    1h ago

    White Sox manager Tony La Russa said Robert (wrist) is scheduled to put in a full workout Thursday, but the skipper is uncertain if the outfielder will be ready to start in Friday's game against the Guardians, Scott Merkin of MLB.com reports.

    Robert is out of the lineup for a sixth consecutive game in Thursday's series finale with the Astros, but he should be available in a pinch-running capacity like he was in Wednesday's 3-2 loss. La Russa said that Robert is dealing with more of a bruise than a sprain to his left wrist, so at this stage, the 25-year-old's main focus is ensuring he can swing the bat effectively while managing discomfort. How Robert responds to his batting session in the cage Thursday will likely be the key factor in the White Sox determining his availability heading into the weekend.

    Cowboys' Noah Brown: Misses practice
    3m ago

    Brown missed practice Thursday with a toe injury, Michael Gehlken of The Dallas Morning News reports.

    Brown sat out the Cowboys' second joint practice with the Chargers due to a toe injury that is not expected to be a long-term issue. Fellow wideout CeeDee Lamb (foot laceration) also missed practice, so the team is without some of its more experienced pass catchers as they prepare for their preseason contest against the Chargers on Saturday. Brown remains the favorite to open the season as the No. 3 wide receiver behind Lamb and rookie Jalen Tolbert assuming that Michael Gallup (knee) is not ready for Week 1.

  • Russell Wilson DEN QB
    Broncos' Russell Wilson: Won't play in preseason games
    3m ago

    Broncos offensive coordinator Justin Outten said Wilson won't play in any preseason games ahead of his Week 1 matchup with the Seahawks, Zac Stevens of TheDNVR.com reports.

    Wilson starts his tenure in Denver with a visit to his old home, facing the Seahawks on Monday Night Football. It remains to be seen if Courtland Sutton and Jerry Jeudy can approximate what Wilson had in Seattle with DK Metcalf and Tyler Lockett, but the Broncos are stronger than the Seahawks at most positions, with no gap wider than the one at quarterback. The 33-year-old Wilson competed at least 64.8 percent of his passes for 7.5 YPA or better in each of his final four seasons with Seattle, averaging 32.8 TD passes, 7.8 interceptions, 353.5 rushing yards and 1.8 rushing TDs per season in that stretch.

    Cowboys' Jeremy Sprinkle: Sitting out practice

    Sprinkle (Achilles) will not take part in the Cowboys' joint practice with the Chargers on Thursday, Michael Gehlken of The Dallas Morning News reports.

    Sprinkle missed a week of practice in the beginning of August with the injury, but he had been participating since his return. Whether this is more of a precautionary choice, or a flare up is not yet known. The 28-year old is currently competing with Jake Ferguson, Sean McKeon and Peyton Hendershot for positioning on the Cowboys' tight end positional depth chart, behind locked in starter Dalton Schultz.

  • Matt Ryan IND QB
    Colts' Matt Ryan: Won't play this week
    14m ago

    Ryan won't play in Saturday's preseason game against Detroit, Mike Chappell of Fox 59 News Indianapolis reports.

    After completing six of 10 passes for 58 yards in the Colts' preseason opener, Ryan may have to wait until Week 1 at Houston for his next shot to take the field. He'll likely have Michael Pittman, Parris Campbell and Alec Pierce as his top three wide receivers, with Jonathan Taylor and Nyheim Hines in the backfield and Mo Alie-Cox starting at tight end. It isn't a dominant group of pass catchers by any means, but Ryan does have one of the best backfields and one of the best O-lines in the league. It's certainly a better situation than the mess he dealt with in Atlanta last year, with the downside being that the's now a year older (37).

    The Steelers signed Borghi on Thursday.

    Borghi will head to Pittsburgh just two days after being waived by the Broncos. The undrafted rookie out of Washington State totaled four carries for 10 yards during Denver's preseason opener Saturday. Borghi will now look to compete with Anthony McFarland, Jaylen Warren and Mataeo Durant for a possible depth role in the Steelers' running back room this preseason.

The 221-pound back suffered what appeared to be a minor ankle injury during practice the Steelers' practice Tuesday, and he is now set to revert to the team's injured reserve list upon clearing waivers.

    Spurs' Jeremy Sochan: Resumes on-court activities

    Sochan (hamstring) has been participating in daily workouts since the end of Summer League, Tom Orsborn of the San Antonio Express-News reports.

    Sochan wasn't able to play in Summer League due to a combination of COVID-19 and a hamstring issue, but per Orsborn's report, the No. 9 pick in the 2022 Draft said his "body is feeling great" and he's "excited to be on the court finally." Sochan chose to remain in San Antonio before the start of camp instead of competing for Poland at EuroBasket, so his health shouldn't be an issue.

    Lakers' LeBron James: Secures two-year extension
    1d ago

    James agreed Wednesday with the Lakers on a two-year, $97.1 million contract extension, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.

    James' extension will keep him in Los Angeles through at least the 2024-25 campaign, when he's set to turn 40 years old. He's coming off his best scoring campaign since his second year in the league, as he averaged 30.3 points per game in 2021-22 while chipping in 8.2 boards, 6.2 assists, 2.9 three-pointers, 1.3 steals and 1.1 blocks. He missed the Lakers' final five games of the regular season due to a left ankle injury, but he didn't require surgery during the spring or summer and should report to training camp at full strength.

    Jones inked a training camp contract with the Bulls on Tuesday, Keith Smith of Spotrac.com reports.

    Jones spent most of last season in the G League, where he amassed 20.9 points, 6.8 assists, 4.8 rebounds and 1.3 steals per game over 43 contests between the regular season and the playoffs. He'll now compete for the Bulls' available two-way contract, which could turn into two depending on what the front office decides in the wake of Justin Lewis suffering a torn ACL over the weekend.

    Bulls' Justin Lewis: Suffers ACL injury

    Lewis suffered an ACL injury over the weekend and will undergo surgery in the coming weeks, which will sideline him indefinitely.

    Lewis inked a two-way contract with the Bulls after going undrafted this summer. The 6-foot-7 forward out of Marquette was expected to spend the majority of the season in the G League, so his absence shouldn't impact the NBA roster.

    Harris was granted reinstatement by the NBA on Tuesday, Aaron Rose of SI.com reports.

    Harris was given a one-year ban following a positive test for a prohibited substance as of July 1 of 2021. He sat out last year as a result but is now eligible to rejoin the league ranks given that he's served that suspension. Toronto still holds Harris' rights and may look to sign him following his rookie campaign in 2019-20, when he amassed 7.4 points, 1.4 rebounds and 1.3 assists over 13.2 minutes per game.

    Begarin will continue his development in the French LNB Pro A league this season, Adam Himmelsbach of The Boston Globe reports.

    Begarin had a strong showing in the five Summer League games he appeared in, averaging 18.2 points, 5.6 rebounds, 2.4 assists and 1.8 steals per contest. However, the 20-year-old has elected to remain in Paris for the upcoming season to continue to work on his game in France's top league before considering a move to the NBA. Begarin will likely revisit the possibility of moving to the NBA ahead of the 2023-24 season.

    Canadiens' Sean Monahan: Shipped to Montreal
    1h ago

    The Canadiens acquired Monahan (hip) in a trade with the Flames on Thursday, Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet reports.

    Monahan has played his entire nine-year NHL career in Calgary, the organization that drafted him sixth overall back in the 2013 NHL Draft. Despite ending last season on long-term injured reserve following hip surgery, Monahan still managed to record 23 points in 65 games, though his eight goals were highest lowest total in his career. While Nick Suzuki appears to have cemented himself as the No. 1 center, Monahan could be in line to replace Christian Dvorak on the second line where he should be capable of getting back over the 30-point threshold for the first time since 2019-20.

    The exact nature of his injury wasn't reported, but it appeared Greig was favoring his shoulder. Team Canada didn't provide an update after the game, so he should be considered day-to-day ahead of the rest of the tournament. If the injury is significant, Greig could be in doubt for the Senators' training camp.

    Avalanche's Shane Bowers: Inks one-year deal

    Bowers signed a one-year, two-way contract with the Avalanche on Wednesday.

    Bowers has experienced diminishing returns in the AHL, logging only nine points in 37 contests with the Colorado Eagles last year. He has 45 points in 117 career AHL games. The first-round pick from 2017 could compete for a bottom-six role in training camp, but it's likely he again spends much of the upcoming season in the minors unless he can rediscover his offense.

    Blackhawks' Jack Johnson: Signs with Chicago
    2d ago

    Johnson signed a one-year, $950,000 contract with the Blackhawks on Tuesday, Charlie Roumeliotis of NBC Sports Chicago reports.

    Johnson, 35, is coming off of a year that saw him go from a professional tryout to playing a key depth role for the Stanley Cup-winning Avalanche. The veteran defenseman had nine points in 74 regular-season games while adding 91 hits and 68 blocked shots. With the Blackhawks, he'll still see mainly bottom-four minutes for a rebuilding team, so there's not likely to be much fantasy value from his play.

    Blais missed most of the 2021-22 campaign with his last appearance for the Rangers coming Nov. 14 versus the Devils, a stretch of 87 games including the postseason. With Blais seemingly ready for training camp, he should be in the mix for a spot on the third line.

    Golden Knights' Laurent Brossoit: Progressing after surgery
    3d ago

    Brossoit (undisclosed) is "ahead of schedule" but likely won't be ready for Opening Night, Jason Gregor of OilersNation.com reports.

    With Robin Lehner (hip) out for the 2022-23 season, Brossoit and Logan Thompson are expected to handle the goaltending duties for Vegas. Brossoit underwent surgery this offseason and, while the progress has been good, it sounds like he could begin the year on injured reserve. The 29-year-old posted a 2.90 GAA and an .895 save percentage through a career-high 24 appearances last season. An extended absence for Brossoit or a hot start by Thompson could shape how the team utilizes the tandem once both are available.
