Marquez Stevenson BUF WR
Marquez Stevenson: Off to waivers1h ago
The Bills waived Stevenson on Wednesday, Aaron Wilson of ProFootballNetwork.com reports.
As expected, Buffalo sent Stevenson to waivers with the expectation that the Bills will be able to sign him to their practice squad as long as he isn't snatched by another team. The 24-year-old suffered a foot injury early in training camp and has been unavailable up until his activation from injured reserve Tuesday. If Stevenson is indeed added to Buffalo's practice squad, pending waivers, then he'd serve as additional wide receiver depth for the time being.
Arik Armstead SF DT
49ers' Arik Armstead: Logs partial practice1h ago
Armstead (foot/ankle) was limited in Wednesday's practice, Eric Branch of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
Armstead made his return from a seven-game absence streak this past Sunday against the Dolphins due to a foot/ankle injury, but he ultimately failed to record any stats on just 20 defensive snaps played in the contest. The 29-year-old's ability to participate in Wednesday's session in any capacity puts him on track to suit up again this weekend versus Tampa Bay, though he could see his snaps capped for a second consecutive matchup.
Will Dissly SEA TE
Seahawks' Will Dissly: DNP on Wednesday1h ago
Dissly (calf) was a non-participant at Wednesday's practice, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.
Dissly hasn't had any practice limitations this season and earns better than 50 percent of the snaps most weeks, resulting in between one and four catches per game through 12 contests. Overall, he has a modest 30-297-3 line on 33 targets. Considering Dissly wasn't able to take part in drills to kick off this week, his status will be watched as the weekend approaches to get a sense of his availability for Sunday's matchup with the Panthers.
Nick Bosa SF DE
49ers' Nick Bosa: Held out of Wednesday's practice1h ago
Bosa (hamstring) didn't practice Wednesday, Eric Branch of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
Bosa opened Week 14 prep as a spectator during Wednesday's session, after head coach Kyle Shanahan previously said that the star pass rusher is dealing with a "hamstring irritation" that the team will work through, per David Lombardi of The Athletic. Though the 25-year-old collected a season-high three sacks and forced a fumble on just 38 defensive snaps last weekend versus Miami, his status is definitely something worth monitoring as the week goes on.
Marquise Goodwin SEA WR
Seahawks' Marquise Goodwin: No practice Wednesday1h ago
Goodwin (hand) didn't practice Wednesday, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.
Goodwin missed some time this past Sunday at the Rams with a hand injury, which continues to bother him. He still was able to play through it, making his only catch, a 17-yard gain, on the snap before DK Metcalf's game-winning touchdown. With no activity to begin Week 14 prep, Goodwin's status bears watching as the week continues to get a sense of his availability ahead of Sunday's game versus the Panthers.
Travis Homer SEA RB
Seahawks' Travis Homer: Officially limited Wednesday1h ago
Homer (knee) practiced in a limited capacity Wednesday, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.
Homer was capped to one limited session last week due to an illness, and while he went into the weekend listed as questionable for Sunday's game at the Rams, the Seahawks downgraded him to out Saturday. On Monday, coach Pete Carroll touched on Homer's injury, calling it a knee sprain, according to Boyle. With Kenneth Walker (ankle) and DeeJay Dallas (ankle) unable to mix into drills Wednesday, Homer is the healthiest of the team's top three running backs on the active roster. Homer thus is in a good spot to get work Sunday against the Panthers if he's deemed healthy enough to play. If some combination of the three can't suit up this weekend, Tony Jones also is on the active roster, while Darwin Thompson, Godwin Igwebuike and Wayne Gallman are the candidates to be elevated from the practice squad.
Justin Verlander HOU SP
Mets' Justin Verlander: Officially lands with Mets1h ago
Verlander has signed a two-year, $86.66 million contract with the Mets.
The deal was reported Monday and has now been officially announced by the team. It includes a full no-trade clause and contains a $35 million vesting option for 2025 should Verlander pitch at least 140 innings in 2024. The reigning American League Cy Young winner is headed to the National League for the first time and will serve as Jacob de Grom's de facto replacement.
Trevor Williams NYM RP
Trevor Williams: Mets reunion possible2h ago
Williams has discussed a possible reunion with the Mets, Andy Martino of SNY.tv reports.
Martino notes that the Mets are "not the only team in" on the right-hander, so it would appear they have a little competition. Williams, 30, pitched well in a swingman role in 2022, holding a 3.21 ERA, 1.23 WHIP and 84:23 K:BB ratio across 89.2 innings.
Austin Brice ARI RP
Diamondbacks' Austin Brice: Heading to desert2h ago
Brice signed a minor-league contract with the Diamondbacks on Thursday.
Brice spent 2022 with the Pirates and appeared in just four MLB games. He spent most of the campaign at the Triple-A level and had a 5.56 ERA, 1.39 WHIP and 53:18 K:BB across 43.2 innings.
Noah Song BOS SP
Phillies' Noah Song: Joining Phillies3h ago
Song was selected by the Phillies with the 16th overall pick in the 2022 Rule 5 draft.
Song is in the process of completing his two-year commitment to the United States Naval Academy and has been placed on the military list by the Phillies, so he won't count toward the team's 40-man roster. The right-hander is a talented prospect and posted a 1.06 ERA, 19:5 K:BB and 0.88 WHIP in 17 innings over seven starts in rookie ball in 2019, but it's not yet clear when he'll resume his career.
Cole Tucker ARI RF
Rockies' Cole Tucker: Catches on with Colorado4h ago
Tucker agreed Wednesday with the Rockies on a minor-league contract that includes an invitation to big-league spring training, Mark Feinsand of MLB.com reports.
Tucker will move on to the third organization of his career after previous stops with Pittsburgh and Arizona. He elected free agency this offseason after the Diamondbacks previously cast him off their 40-man roster in July. The 26-year-old utility man finished this past season at Triple-A Reno, where he slashed .237/.297/.325 with two home runs and four stolen bases over 128 plate appearances.
Sean Reid-Foley NYM RP
Mets' Sean Reid-Foley: Returns to Mets on MiLB pact4h ago
Reid-Foley (elbow) re-signed Monday with the Mets on a minor-league contract.
Reid-Foley won't be available for the start of the 2023 season while he continues his recovery from the Tommy John procedure he underwent last May, but his decision to re-sign with the Mets will at least allow him to conduct his rehab in a team setting. Before going under the knife, Reid-Foley made seven relief appearances for the Mets last season, giving up six earned runs on seven hits and seven walks over 10 innings.
Michael Porter Jr. DEN SF
Nuggets' Michael Porter: Questionable to return Thursday14m ago
Porter (heel) is questionable to play in Thursday's game against the Trail Blazers.
Porter has missed the last seven games due to a left heel strain. If Porter is ruled out Thursday, his listing is a good sign that he'll be available for Saturday's game against the Jazz.
Ty Jerome GS SG
Warriors' Ty Jerome: Making first start Wednesday17m ago
Jerome is in the starting lineup Wednesday against Utah, Anthony Slater of The Athletic reports.
Jerome will make his first start of the season for the Warriors, who are without Stephen Curry (ankle), Andrew Wiggins (groin) and Draymond Green (hip) on Wednesday. Jerome has tallied 5.7 points and 1.9 assists across 10 previous appearances this year.
Kentavious Caldwell-Pope DEN SG
Nuggets' Kentavious Caldwell-Pope: Likely to play versus Portland19m ago
Caldwell-Pope is probable to play in Thursday's matchup with the Trail Blazers due to a right wrist sprain.
Caldwell-Pope was also questionable to play Tuesday due to his wrist injury before ultimately playing. Caldwell-Pope is averaging 11.0 points, 2.9 rebounds, 2.1 assists and 1.2 steals in 31.1 minutes across 23 games this season.
JaMychal Green GS C
Warriors' JaMychal Green: Starting Wednesday19m ago
Green is in the starting five Wednesday against Utah, Anthony Slater of The Athletic reports.
Green is set to make his first start of the season for the shorthand Warriors on Wednesday. The forward has averaged 5.5 points and 3.9 rebounds across 22 games played.
Ryan Arcidiacono NY PG
Knicks' Ryan Arcidiacono: Remains out Wednesday27m ago
Arcidiacono (ankle) won't play in Wednesday's game against Atlanta.
Arcidiacono will be absent for a fourth straight matchup while tending to a left ankle sprain. His next chance to return to the floor looms Friday against Charlotte.
Torrey Craig PHO SF
Suns' Torrey Craig: Playing without minutes restriction28m ago
Craig is available for Wednesday's game against the Celtics and won't have a minutes restriction, Gerald Bourguet of GoPHNX.com reports.
Craig will return to the lineup after missing the last three games with a groin injury. Craig will likely start Wednesday, as he had in the previous 13 games before suffering his injury.
Alexandar Georgiev COL G
Avalanche's Alexandar Georgiev: Set to face Boston15m ago
Georgiev is expected to start at home against Boston on Wednesday, per Peter Baugh of The Athletic.
Georgiev has an 11-4-1 record, 2.68 GAA and .920 save percentage in 16 games this season. He's hit a road block recently, allowing 13 goals over his last three contests. The Bruins rank first offensively with 3.96 goals per game, so it will be difficult for him to end that slump against them.
Jean-Luc Foudy COL C
Avalanche's Jean-Luc Foudy: Available to play15m ago
Foudy (lower body) is expected to play Wednesday versus the Bruins, Peter Baugh of The Athletic reports.
It appeared earlier Wednesday that Foudy would miss a second game, but it's all hands on deck for a banged up Colorado team. The 20-year-old has yet to record a point in three contests this season. He'll play in a bottom-six role.
Dan Vladar CGY G
Flames' Dan Vladar: Making third start in a row1h ago
Vladar will guard the home goal in Wednesday's game versus the Wild, Pat Steinberg of Sportsnet 960 The Fan reports.
Vladar has won three outings in a row, allowing six goals on 82 shots in that span. He'll face a Wild team that has won five of its last six games while scoring no fewer than three goals in each of those contests. That makes this a tough matchup for Vladar, who has a 2.54 GAA and a .914 save percentage on the season.
Vinnie Hinostroza BUF C
Sabres' Vinnie Hinostroza: Sidelined again Wednesday2h ago
Hinostroza (undisclosed) won't play versus the Blue Jackets on Wednesday, Lance Lysowski of The Buffalo News reports.
This will be Hinostroza's third straight game out of the lineup, and his second in a row due to the injury. The 28-year-old could eventually be cleared but serve as a healthy scratch as he contends for bottom-six minutes in the Sabres' lineup.
Dylan Coghlan CAR D
Hurricanes' Dylan Coghlan: Heading on conditioning assignment3h ago
Coghlan was assigned to AHL Chicago on a conditioning loan Wednesday, Walt Ruff of the Hurricanes' official site reports.
Coghlan is eligible to spend 14 days with the Wolves during the assignment. He hasn't played an NHL game since Nov. 9, so this is a way for the Hurricanes to get the 24-year-old into game action. This move also more or less guarantees Jalen Chatfield will retain a third-pairing role with the big club for the next two weeks at a minimum.
Brandt Clarke LA D
Kings' Brandt Clarke: Loaned to Team Canada3h ago
Clarke was loaned by Los Angeles to Team Canada on Wednesday so that he can play in the 2023 World Junior Championship.
Clarke has two assists in nine games with Los Angeles this season. He last played for the Kings on Nov. 1, but Clarke was with AHL Ontario on a conditioning loan from Nov. 13-27. During that AHL stint, he recorded a goal and an assist in five contests. Allowing Clarke to work with Team Canada will give the 19-year-old another opportunity to get into some games rather than continue to be a healthy scratch with the Kings.
