  • Taven Bryan CLE DT
    Browns' Taven Bryan: Labeled questionable for Sunday
    8m ago

    Bryan (hamstring) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Falcons, Scott Petrak of the Elyria Chronicle-Telegram reports.

    Bryan picked up the hamstring injury during the fourth quarter of the team's Week 3 loss to the Steelers on Thursday Night Football, but he's had over a week to clear the issue and will have a shot at suiting up in Week 4 despite not practicing Wednesday or Thursday. If Bryan is ruled out, Perrion Winfrey and Tommy Togiai would be candidates for increased roles.

  • Julio Jones TB WR
    Buccaneers' Julio Jones: Could be game-time call
    16m ago

    Jones (knee) could be a game-time decision ahead of Sunday's matchup with the Chiefs, Jenna Laine of reports.

    Jones was a limited practice participant Wednesday through Friday, but coach Todd Bowles said the real question is how the veteran wideout's body responds after a day of rest. The Bucs may thus treat both Chris Godwin (hamstring) and Jones as game-time decisions, with the latter seemingly more likely to play. Breshad Perriman, meanwhile, will be listed as doubtful with a hamstring injury, which leaves Scotty Miller as the No. 3 receiver in the unlikely event of both Godwin and Jones sitting out another week. Mike Evans is back from a one-game suspension, and Russell Gage is coming off his best game of the season in Week 3.

  • Chris Godwin TB WR
    Buccaneers' Chris Godwin: Headed for game-time decision
    19m ago

    Coach Todd Bowles said Godwin (hamstring) will be a game-time decision Sunday against the Chiefs, Jenna Laine of ESPN.comreports.

    Bowles said the same is true for Julio Jones, who was a limited practice participant all week after missing the past two games with a hip injury. Breshad Perriman, meanwhile, will be listed as doubtful with a hamstring issue, though he might've been sliding back to a depth role this week even if he'd remained healthy. Godwin appears truly questionable entering the weekend and likely will be listed as such on the final injury report.

  • Mac Jones NE QB
    Patriots' Mac Jones: On the field Friday
    27m ago

    Jones (ankle) was present for the start of Friday's practice, Mike Reiss of reports.

    Reiss adds that during the media-access portion of the session, Jones didn't move around much on his injured left ankle. It remains to be seen how the Patriots list Jones' participation level, but the QB's presence on the field Friday supports the notion there might be some chance he could play through what's been reported as a high ankle sprain. Either way, Friday's upcoming injury report will add a layer of context regarding Jones' chances of being available for Sunday's 4:25 ET contest against the Packers.

  • Dak Prescott DAL QB
    Cowboys' Dak Prescott: Not throwing Friday
    31m ago

    Prescott still has swelling in his surgically repaired thumb and won't practice or throw a football Friday, Calvin Watkins of The Dallas Morning News reports.

    While set to miss a third straight game this Sunday against Washington, the 29-year-old QB recently said he hopes to make it back for Week 5 against the Rams, though Ian Rapoport of NFL Network suggested Wednesday that Week 6 against the Eagles is a more realistic target. Either way, Prescott continues to be listed as a non-participant in practice, including this Thursday when he did some light throwing in front of the Dallas media. His practice statuses next week should provide some hint as to whether he has a real chance to play against the Rams.

    Davis (ankle) was present for Friday's practice, Joe Buscaglia of The Athletic reports.

    It remains to be seen how the Bills list his participation level and subsequent Week 4 injury status, but Davis' presence on the field Friday is nonetheless encouraging after he was listed as a non-participant Thursday.

    8m ago

    Smyly (shoulder) is scheduled to start Saturday against the Reds, Tony Andracki of Marquee Sports Network reports.

    Smyly threw his second bullpen session of the week Thursday and will start Saturday after being unavailable the past couple weeks with shoulder fatigue. It will be the final start of 2022 for the veteran lefty, who has a 3.48 ERA, 1.19 WHIP and 89:26 K:BB across 103.1 innings this season.

    Guardians' Enyel De Los Santos: Grabs fifth win
    18m ago

    De Los Santos (5-0) struck out two in a perfect inning to earn the win Thursday over the Rays.

    De Los Santos kept the deficit to one run in the eighth inning, and the Guardians flipped the score with a two-run burst in their half of the frame. He's allowed four runs in 9.1 innings in September, securing two wins and a hold across 10 appearances. The 26-year-old right-hander hasn't seen a lot of high-leverage work, but he's been effective with a 2.98 ERA, 1.05 WHIP and 59:16 K:BB through 51.1 innings while adding a save and three holds.

    20m ago

    Stephan issued three walks and struck out two to earn the save in Thursday's 2-1 win over the Rays.

    Stephan loaded the bases with one out, but he struck out Ji-Man Choi and got Isaac Paredes to pop out to end the threat. Both closer Emmanuel Clase and top setup man James Karinchak had pitched in the previous two games, leaving Stephan with a rare save chance. This was only the fourth time in 64 appearances that Stephan had permitted multiple walks. He has a 2.74 ERA, 1.20 WHIP and 81:18 K:BB while adding three saves, 19 holds and a 6-5 record through 62.1 innings.

    Tate (4-4) took the loss Thursday versus the Red Sox, allowing two runs on a hit and two walks in one inning.

    Tate surrendered a two-run home run to J.D. Martinez in the eighth inning, which gave the Red Sox the win. This was the fourth time in five appearances Tate has given up at least one run as he fades late in the season. The setup man has a 2.88 ERA, 0.97 WHIP, 59:13 K:BB, four saves and 16 holds through 72 innings this season.

  • Chris Flexen SEA SP
    Mariners' Chris Flexen: Notches eighth win Thursday
    1h ago

    Flexen (8-9) got the win in extra innings over the Rangers on Thursday, allowing an unearned run over one inning without any hits, walks or strikeouts.

    Flexen gave up a sacrifice fly to Marcus Semien that plated phantom runner Leody Taveras with the go-ahead run in the top of the 11th, but the Mariners walked it off in the home half of the frame with singles from Luis Torrens and J.P. Crawford. The veteran right-hander's last win had come July 25 against this same Rangers squad when he was still working as a starter, yet Flexen has adapted well to a relief role by not allowing an earned run across the 9.2 innings covering his last eight appearances.

    Dedmon was limited during Tuesday's practice due to a foot injury, but as expected, the issue was minor and he's already back to full participation. The undrafted product out of USC is expected to be the primary backup center to Bam Adebayo during the 2022-23 campaign, though he may face competition from second-year pro Omer Yurtseven.

    Haslem missed Tuesday's practice due to Achilles soreness, but the veteran was back in the mix Friday, along with the rest of Miami's roster. Regardless, Haslem isn't expected to play in many games during the 2022-23 campaign as he continues to serve mostly as a coach.

    32m ago

    Yurtseven (quadriceps) fully participated in Friday's training camp practice, Anthony Chiang of the Miami Herald reports.

    Yurtseven dealt with a quad injury during Summer League, but he appears to be good to go to start training camp. The undrafted center made 56 appearances as a rookie last year and averaged 5.3 points and 5.3 rebounds across 12.6 minutes per game. He's expected to compete with Dewayne Dedmon for backup minutes behind Bam Adebayo during the 2022-23 campaign.

    Stars' Ty Dellandrea: Sustains broken finger
    14h ago

    Dellandrea will be out for a couple of weeks due to a broken bone in his finger, Matthew DeFranks of The Dallas Morning News reports.

    Dellandrea's injury won't require surgery, but it will cost him the rest of the preseason. There's a chance he could still make the Stars' Opening Night roster if he only misses two weeks, but the team may want the 22-year-old to get some game action in with AHL Texas first.

    Devils' Tyce Thompson: Injured in Thursday's game
    15h ago

    Thompson (undisclosed) left Thursday's game versus the Rangers with an injury, Amanda Stein of the Devils' official site reports.

    Thompson logged just one shift in the first period and didn't return, though information regarding his injury was not available immediately after the game. The 23-year-old forward was likely to be a long shot for the NHL roster this year, so his injury isn't likely to have a large fantasy impact.
