    Lions' Kevin Strong: Put on IR
    3h ago

    Strong (concussion) was placed on injured reserve Saturday.

    Strong will sit out until Week 6 against the Bengals at the earliest. He was a full participant in Thursday's practice after sitting out against the Packers in Week 2, but Strong appears to have suffered a substantial setback in his recovery and will miss at least three weeks as a result.

  • Carson Wentz IND QB
    Colts' Carson Wentz: Expected to start Sunday
    3h ago

    Wentz (ankles), who is questionable on the injury report against Tennessee and will be a game-time decision, is expected to start, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

    Rapoport adds that Wentz is pushing to play and the Colts have contingency plans in place if he has a setback in warmups or during the game. The Colts activated Brett Hundley from the practice squad Saturday. Hundley would likely play if Wentz can't go since Hundley took the bulk of reps in practice this week over Jacob Eason when Wentz was sidelined. However, Wentz returned to practice Friday and looks set to play even though he was limited in that session.

    Giants' Kenny Golladay: Team optimistic he'll play
    3h ago

    The Giants are optimistic that Golladay (hip) will suit up Sunday against the Falcons, Jeremy Fowler of ESPN reports.

    Big Blue is also optimistic that tight end Evan Engram (calf) will suit up for the first time this season. With its full complement of weapons available for the first time, New York's offense could be in line for a big game against a league-worst Falcons defense that's allowing 40 points per game, and Golladay should get more opportunities to put his big-play ability on display.

  • Andy Dalton CHI QB
    Bears' Andy Dalton: Week 4 return possible
    4h ago

    Dalton (knee) -- who has been ruled out for Sunday's game in Cleveland -- is not expected to miss significant additional time and could return as soon as Week 4 against the Lions, Jeremy Fowler of ESPN reports.

    Justin Fields took over after Dalton got hurt in Week 2 against the Bengals, but the rookie first-round pick struggled to move the offense. While Fields will have the opportunity to make his first career start against the Browns, his time as the starter will likely be short-lived; Chicago hasn't given any indication that Dalton's spot atop the quarterback depth chart is in jeopardy at this point.

    Ravens' Josh Bynes: Joins Baltimore's active roster
    7h ago

    Bynes will join the Ravens' active roster for Sunday's matchup with the Lions as a COVID-19 replacement, Jeff Zrebiec of The Athletic reports.

    The Ravens currently have four players dealing with COVID-19 protocols, so Bynes will join the active roster as one of four replacement players. The 32-year-old linebacker played in all 16 games for the Bengals last year and notched 99 total tackles. It's unclear how big his role will be in Sunday's contest against the Lions.

    Raiders' Trey Ragas: Signed to active roster
    7h ago

    The Raiders signed Ragas to their active roster from their practice squad Saturday, Doug Kyed of Pro Football Focus reports.

    The Raiders will likely be without Josh Jacobs (ankle) against the Dolphins on Sunday, so Ragas will provide some depth to Las Vegas' running back room. The 24-year-old was active for the Raiders' Week 2 victory over the Steelers, but he didn't see any snaps. It's unclear what his role will be in Week 3.

    Dodgers' Clayton Kershaw: Limited again in loss
    1m ago

    Kershaw (10-8) took the loss in Saturday's 7-2 defeat at the hands of the Diamondbacks, allowing four runs (three earned) on six hits and a walk with three strikeouts in 4.1 innings.

    Making his third start since returning from injury, Arizona got to Kershaw often with a single run in each of the first, second, fourth and fifth innings. While it's encouraging to see the former MVP ramping up his workload in preparation for the postseason, the outing was Kershaw's worst of his last eight appearances. He's currently scheduled to make one more start next Friday, though that could change depending on Los Angeles' playoff scenario.

  • George Springer TOR DH
    Blue Jays' George Springer: Swats two-run homer
    3m ago

    Springer went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run and a walk in Saturday's 6-1 win over Minnesota.

    The 32-year-old started in center field for the second straight day, and he played the full game. Springer's biggest contribution was his homer in the seventh inning to solidify Toronto's lead. The outfielder is hitting just .160 (13-for-81) through 20 games in September. His overall slash line is at .234/.328/.502 with 18 long balls, 39 RBI, 50 runs scored and three stolen bases through 308 plate appearances.

    Blue Jays' Teoscar Hernandez: Knocks 31st homer
    9m ago

    Hernandez went 2-for-4 with a solo home run and an additional run scored in Saturday's 6-1 win over Minnesota.

    The outfielder tied the game at 1-1 with his second inning blast. He also scored in the eighth inning on a Danny Jansen single. Hernandez has cooled off a little lately, going 9-for-40 with four homers, nine RBI and seven runs scored across his last 11 games. Overall, he still owns an excellent .302/.352/.533 slash line with 31 long balls, 111 RBI, 90 runs scored and 11 stolen bases through 566 plate appearances.

    Blue Jays' Marcus Semien: Goes yard in win
    17m ago

    Semien went 2-for-5 with a solo home run in Saturday's 6-1 win over Minnesota.

    The 31-year-old's 43rd homer of the year tied him with Davey Johnson for the most in a single season by a second baseman. Semien's power surge has seen him swat 11 long balls in 24 September games. He's added a .271/.341/.548 slash line with 99 RBI, 111 runs scored and 15 stolen bases across 692 plate appearances in arguably the best year of his career.

  • Robbie Ray TOR SP
    Blue Jays' Robbie Ray: Slightly wild in 13th win
    21m ago

    Ray (13-6) allowed a run on three hits and four walks with six strikeouts in six innings to earn the win Saturday versus Minnesota.

    The southpaw gave up a sacrifice fly in the first inning, but that was the only run Minnesota scored in the game. Ray's September hasn't been as smooth as his August, as he's allowed eight runs in each month, but in just 28.2 innings this month as opposed to 41 frames last month. He's still been excellent more often than not in 2021 with a 2.68 ERA, 1.04 WHIP and 244:49 K:BB across 188 innings. His last start of the regular season lines up as a pivotal home showdown versus the Yankees next week.

    Diamondbacks' Carson Kelly: Goes deep again
    21m ago

    Kelly went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Saturday's 7-2 win against the Dodgers.

    Kelly launched his 13th home run of the season off Clayton Kershaw in the second inning for his second long ball in three games. The backstop had been slumping for much of September, going 1-for-23 over a recent seven-game stretch, prior to the power binge though he's still on track for a career-best campaign.

  • Shai Gilgeous-Alexander OKC SG
    Thunder's Shai Gilgeous-Alexander: Healthy for camp
    7h ago

    Gilgeous-Alexander (foot) has no limitations heading into training camp, Rylan Stiles of Fansided reports.

    Gilgeous-Alexander missed the final 29 games of last season due to a torn plantar fascia. The injury also caused the Canadian to miss the Summer Olympics in Tokyo, but he didn't need surgery and is now fully recovered. Aside from the injury, he's coming off an excellent 2020-21 campaign with the Thunder, where he ranked 32nd in per-game fantasy production behind 23.7 points, 5.9 assists and 4.7 rebounds. If Gilgeous-Alexander can stay healthy, make marginal developments in his game, and the team doesn't sit him down the stretch to tank, he could be worth a second-round selection. However, fantasy managers have a right to be concerned about SGA missing time at the tail end of the season with phantom injuries.

  • Rui Hachimura WAS PF
    Wizards' Rui Hachimura: Out indefinitely, personal reasons
    11h ago

    Hachimura is out indefinitely due to an excused absence for personal reasons, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.

    Wizards training camp begins Tuesday, so this is relatively short notice. The forward's status is certainly in question for the team's first preseason game Oct. 5 against the Rockets, and it's not clear if he'll be back for the start of the regular season Oct. 20 against the Raptors. If Hachimura's absence extends into the season, more minutes would become available for Deni Avdija and rookie Corey Kispert.

    Coffey has split time between the NBA and the G League in each of the past two seasons, and that will likely be the case again this year.

    Preston injured his right foot Thursday, and the severity of the injury will be determined in a couple of days, Andrew Greif of the Los Angeles Times reports.

    Clippers executive Lawrence Frank said the injury "could be a little bit of a setback" for the rookie. It's possible he's unavailable for the season opener, but we'll learn more within a week.

    Ibaka (back) will only do non-contact work to start training camp, Andrew Greif of the Los Angeles Times reports.

    Ibaka spent much of last season hampered by a severe back injury that limited him to 41 appearances. He's still working back from surgery, and his status for the opener is in question.

    Ford spent last season in the G League with the Clippers' affiliate and averaged 13.9 points, 3.5 assists and 2.4 rebounds in 27.2 minutes. There's a good chance he ends up in the G League again this season.

    Keeper was taken off the ice on a stretcher Saturday during training camp after suffering a leg injury, Jeff Paterson of TSN 1040 Vancouver reports.

    The severity of the injury is unclear at this time, but it seems the 25-year-old could be in for an extended absence. Keeper has appeared in two NHL games in his career but has recorded 21 points through 72 AHL contests with Springfield and Syracuse.

    Vrana injured his shoulder in practice Saturday, Kevin Allen of Detroit Hockey Now reports.

    Vrana's having a rough first training camp with Detroit. He finally hit the ice for the first time Saturday after sorting out his visa issues, only to get injured within the first 10 minutes of practice. The team should have an update on the severity of the injury in the coming days after reevaluating Vrana.

  • Zach Sanford STL LW
    Senators' Zach Sanford: Traded to Ottawa
    10h ago

    Sanford was traded from the Blues to the Senators on Saturday for Logan Brown and a conditional pick in the 2022 draft.

    It's an all-around downgrade in situation for Sanford, as he'll likely play a less prominent role on an inferior team. St. Louis often moved the physical winger up the lineup to bring some balance alongside its top skill guys, but Sanford will be blocked from top-six minutes with the Senators by Brady Tkachuk (contract dispute) and Tim Stutzle at his natural left wing position.

    Blues' Logan Brown: Dealt to Blues
    10h ago

    Brown was traded from Ottawa to St. Louis on Saturday, along with a conditional 2022 draft pick, in exchange for Zach Sanford.

    Brown has failed to live up to expectations since being selected in the first round of the 2016 Draft, but the Blues are hoping a change of scenery will help the 23-year-old center unlock his potential. He had been in a battle for a roster spot in Ottawa, so Brown will need to earn his place in St. Louis' lineup, but he has the skill to eventually climb into a top-six role if things finally start to click for him.
