Albert Wilson MIA WR
Dolphins' Albert Wilson: Clears concussion protocol10m ago
Wilson (concussion) will play Sunday against the Giants after clearing concussion protocol, Joe Schad of The Palm Beach Post reports.
Both Wilson and Devante Parker cleared concussion protocol Saturday, and as a result both wide receivers will suit up in an excellent matchup against the porous Giants secondary. Following the season-ending injury to Preston Williams (knee), Wilson was gradually beginning to get more involved in the offense, posting two consecutive games with at least five catches before leaving the Week 14 contest early, and should be a factor out of the slot Sunday.
DeVante Parker MIA WR
Dolphins' DeVante Parker: Seems set to play24m ago
Parker has cleared concussion protocol and is expected to play Sunday against the Giants, Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald reports.
There was some concern earlier in the week that Parker would not be able to play, but the Dolphins reported the star wideout had officially passed through concussion protocol. Prior to Week 14 in which the 26-year-old was forced out of the game early, Parker had recorded at least 50 receiving yards in seven straight games, part of what has easily shaped up to be a career season for the 2015 first-round pick. The excellent season netted Parker a contract extension Friday in the neighborhood of $40 million over the course of the next four seasons.
Caleb Benenoch DAL G
Caleb Benenoch: Drops to waivers41m ago
The Cowboys waived Benenoch on Saturday, Calvin Watkins of The Dallas Morning News reports.
Benenoch just signed with the Cowboys on Dec. 1, but his tenure ended quickly. If he clears waivers, Benenoch is a practice-squad candidate.
Joey Ivie TEN DT
Titans' Joey Ivie: Promoted to active roster1h ago
The Titans promoted Ivie to the 53-man roster Saturday, Jim Wyatt of the team's official site reports.
Ivie played five games with the Chiefs earlier this year, registering two tackles in a reserve role. The 2017 seventh-round pick likely won't have a consistent role on defense with the Titans.
Kareem Orr TEN DB
Kareem Orr: Let go by Titans1h ago
The Titans waived Orr on Saturday, Jim Wyatt of the team's official site reports.
This was Orr's second stint with the Titans, and he played in the last two games, recording nine tackles (eight solo). To make room for defensive tackle Joey Ivie, Orr will be cut again.
Dan Straily PHI SP
Dan Straily: Heads to Korea22h ago
Straily signed a contract with the Lotte Giants of the KBO on Friday, Jon Heyman of MLB Network reports.
Straily struggled mightily with the Orioles a season ago, accruing a 9.82 ERA and 1.99 WHIP with a 33:22 K:BB over 47.2 frames. He'll look to resurrect his career overseas, and could return to Major League Baseball if he finds success in Korea.
Jeffrey Springs TEX RP
Rangers' Jeffrey Springs: Returning to Texas23h ago
Springs signed a one-year contract with the Rangers on Friday.
Springs was sent to the open market after being non-tendered at the beginning of December, but he's since been brought back to the Rangers. He'll likely handle mid-to-low leverage innings after struggling to a 6.40 ERA and 1.89 WHIP with a 32:23 K:BB over 32.1 frames a year ago.
Thomas Milone TB CF
Yankees' Thomas Milone: Inks MiLB deal with New York23h ago
Milone signed a minor-league contract with the Yankees on Friday, Anderson Pickard of MLB Daily Dish reports.
Milone spent 55 games at High-A Charlotte in 2019, hitting .309 with three home runs, 28 RBI and 12 stolen bags. He also played in 28 contests for Double-A Montgomery, slashing .214/.313/.286 with seven RBI and six stolen bases. Milone figures to begin the year at Double-A Pensacola
Charlie Culberson ATL LF
Braves' Charlie Culberson: Headed back to Atlanta1d ago
Culberson (face) signed a minor-league contract with the Braves on Friday, which includes an invitation to spring training, Kevin McAlpin of 680 The Fan Atlanta reports.
Culberson became a free agent at the beginning of December after being non-tendered by Atlanta, but he'll return to the Braves on a minor-league deal for the 2020 campaign. The outfielder played in 108 games with the big-league team a season ago, hitting .259/.294/.437 with five homers and 20 RBI, and he'll get a chance to earn a spot on the Opening Day roster this spring.
Brandon Morrow CHC RP
Cubs' Brandon Morrow: Back with Chicago1d ago
Morrow (elbow) signed a minor-league contract with the Cubs on Friday, Jesse Rogers of ESPN.com reports.
Morrow had his club option declined by Chicago at the beginning of November and will now return to the Cubs on a minor-league deal. He'll likely get a chance to face big-league hitters during spring training if he's healthy, but considering he hasn't pitched since 2018 due to shoulder issues, he seems unlikely to crack the Opening Day roster.
Alex Verdugo LAD CF
Dodgers' Alex Verdugo: Yet to resume baseball activities1d ago
Verdugo (oblique) has yet to resume baseball activities, Ken Gurnick of MLB.com reports.
An oblique strain has kept Verdugo off the field since early August. His goal is to be ready to play by Opening Day, but he'll need to make some tangible progress before it's clear that will be possible.
LeBron James LAL SF
Lakers' LeBron James: Questionable Sunday3m ago
James is questionable for Sunday's game against the Hawks due to right elbow soreness.
James has emerged from Friday's victory over the Heat with a sore right elbow, and he could miss his first game of the season Sunday. More information should arrive following the Lakers' morning shootaround or pregame warmups. If James ends up sidelined, Quinn Cook, Rajon Rondo and Alex Caruso could be asked to take on more ballhandling duties.
Rajon Rondo LAL PG
Lakers' Rajon Rondo: Probable Sunday12m ago
Rondo (hamstring) is probable for Sunday's matchup against the Hawks.
Rondo returned from a two-game absence Friday that was due to a strained left hamstring. He's apparently dealing with some soreness but should be able to play Sunday.
Al Horford PHI C
76ers' Al Horford: Questionable Sunday16m ago
Horford (knee) is questionable for Sunday's matchup against the Nets.
Left knee soreness has kept Horford out over the past two games, but he may be able to make his return Sunday. More information should arrive following the 76ers' morning shootaround or pregame activities.
Anthony Davis LAL PF
Lakers' Anthony Davis: Probable Sunday vs. Hawks21m ago
Davis (shoulder) is probable for Sunday's matchup against the Hawks.
Davis continues to be listed on the injury report, but he hasn't missed a game since Nov. 13. More information should emerge following the Lakers' morning shootaround or pregame activities. In seven December games, Davis is averaging 30.9 points, 9.1 rebounds, 2.7 assists, 2.1 blocks and 1.4 steals in 35.0 minutes.
Avery Bradley LAL PG
Lakers' Avery Bradley: Listed as probable23m ago
Bradley (leg) is probable for Sunday's game against the Hawks.
Bradley has been on the injury report over the past two games since returning from a right leg hairline fracture, but he's appeared in both contests. More information on his availability may emerge following the Lakers' morning shootaround or pregame activities.
Mikael Granlund NSH RW
Predators' Mikael Granlund: Out with lower-body issue5m ago
Granlund won't play Saturday against Dallas due to a lower-body injury.
With Granlund on the shelf, the recently recalled Colin Blackwell will draw into the lineup against the Stars. Granlund's considered day-to-day with his lower-body issue, so he may only be forced to miss a single contest.
Pekka Rinne NSH G
Predators' Pekka Rinne: Guarding crease Saturday7m ago
Rinne will draw the start for Saturday's tilt against the Stars, Brooks Bratten of the Predators' official site reports.
Rinne will make his first start in a week as backup Juuso Saros has started the last two games for Nashville. The 37-year-old allowed four goals on 33 shots in a win over the Devils last Saturday. Since the start of November, Rinne has struggled to the tune of a .868 save percentage and 3.93 GAA in eight starts.
Mattias Ekholm NSH D
Predators' Mattias Ekholm: Late scratch Saturday8m ago
Ekholm (illness) won't play in Saturday's home matchup against the Stars.
Ekholm will miss his first game of the season, so Matt Irwin will draw into the lineup. Over 30 contests, Ekholm has been quite productive with 15 points and 35 shots on net. The Swedish defenseman is considered day-to-day, so he'll aim to get healthy for Monday's road game against the Rangers.
Jaroslav Halak BOS G
Bruins' Jaroslav Halak: Taking on Panthers14m ago
Halak will patrol the road crease in Saturday's matchup against the Panthers.
The Bruins are borrowing the Islanders' goaltending plan, as Halak and Rask will switch off in net for the 12th straight game. Halak has been been the better of the two during that stretch, recording a .932 save percentage and 1.82 GAA en route to a 3-2-0 record. He'll have his hands full against the Panthers, who are averaging 3.41 goals per home game.
Brett Ritchie BOS RW
Bruins' Brett Ritchie: Scratched against Panthers20m ago
Ritchie will be a healthy scratch in Saturday's game against the Panthers, Fluto Shinzawa of The Athletic reports.
Ritchie has played in four games since returning from an infection, posting zero points and a minus-4 rating. The Bruins have lost four straight games in regulation, so it appears Ritchie will endure a press-box stint as coach Bruce Cassidy mixes up the lines to help the team get back on track. Charlie Coyle is expected to flank the second line for Saturday's game.
Daniel Carr NSH LW
Predators' Daniel Carr: Sent to bus league37m ago
The Predators assigned Carr to AHL Milwaukee on Saturday.
Carr has only averaged 6:25 of ice time in his last two appearances with the Predators, so this move doesn't come as a surprise. The 28-year-old winger will continue to bounce between leagues throughout the campaign.
