    Rams' Joe Noteboom: Full participant in practice
    4h ago

    Noteboom (knee) was a full participant in practice Wednesday, Adam Caplan of SiriusXM NFL Radio reports.

    Noteboom left Monday's loss to the Bengals early with a knee injury but appears to have overcome it. The Rams will be glad to have the 2018 third-round pick back so they don't have to worry about being without a left tackle for the second straight week, as backup tackle Alaric Jackson was also injured last week.

    Ravens' Geno Stone: Ready to go for Week 4
    5h ago

    Stone (ribs) did not appear on the Ravens' injury report Wednesday.

    Stone suffered a ribs injury in the team's 22-19 loss to the Colts in Week 3, but he appears to be ready to go for Sunday's matchup with the Browns. He could draw the start at free safety with Marcus Williams (pectoral) uncertain again in Week 4.

    Hinton (back) is not on the Chargers' injury report ahead of their matchup with the Raiders on Sunday.

    Hinton has seemingly recovered from a back injury that kept him out of last week's win against the Vikings. The 23-year-old will now look to make his season debut for Sunday's game against the Raiders.

    The Packers have ruled out Anderson (hamstring) for Thursday's game against the Lions, Wes Hodkiewicz of the Packers' official site reports.

    Packers' Zach Tom: Questionable for TNF
    5h ago

    Tom (knee) is considered questionable to play Thursday night versus the Lions, Ryan Wood of USA Today reports.

    Tom suffered a knee injury in the Packers' 18-17 win over the Saints in Week 3 and his status for Week 4 is now in question. If he can't go versus Detroit, either Yosh Nijman or Caleb Jones could step into a starting role.

    Packers' Elgton Jenkins: Ruled out again
    5h ago

    Jenkins (knee) will miss Thursday's game against the Lions, Ryan Wood of USA Today reports.

    Jenkins suffered an MCL sprain Week 2 that will keep him sidelined once again. The Packers will be short handed on the left side of the line as David Bakhtiari (knee) is also out, so Rasheed Walker and Royce Newman will start at left tackle and left guard respectively.

  • Freddie Freeman LAD 1B
    Dodgers' Freddie Freeman: Goes deep again Wednesday
    6m ago

    Freeman went 1-for-3 with a three-run home run and a stolen base in Wednesday's 8-2 win over the Rockies.

    Freeman put the game out of reach for the Dodgers in the eighth inning with a 412-foot, three-run shot to right field. It was his second homer in as many days following a 23-game stretch during which he went deep just once. Freeman's three RBI in the win pushed his total to 101 on the campaign, marking his second straight triple-digit RBI season and the fourth of his big-league career. He's also tallied a career-high 23 thefts while belting 28 long balls, scoring 128 runs and posting a standout .333/.412/.368 slash line over 713 plate appearances.

  • Noah Davis COL SP
    Rockies' Noah Davis: Takes loss against Los Angeles
    11m ago

    Davis (0-4) took the loss against the Dodgers on Wednesday, allowing four runs on seven hits and two walks while striking out four batters over 4.1 innings.

    Davis made it through two scoreless frames before giving up a solo homer to James Outman in the third. The right-hander still entered the fifth inning in a tight 1-1 contest, but he allowed six of the seven batters he reached in that frame to reach base, with his only out coming on a sacrifice fly. All of that traffic led to three Los Angeles runs and the fourth defeat of the campaign for Davis. This was presumably his last appearance of the campaign, as he threw 86 pitches. If that's the case, Davis will finish with an 8.70 ERA, 1.93 WHIP and 26:15 K:BB over 30 innings in his first extended look in the majors.

    Dodgers' Emmet Sheehan: Racks up career-high 10 punchouts
    16m ago

    Sheehan (4-1) earned the win over Colorado on Wednesday, allowing two runs on five hits and no walks while striking out 10 batters over six innings.

    Sheehan induced 20 swinging strikes in the outing, taming the Coors Field disadvantage by keeping the Rockies from making consistent contact. The rookie hurler did serve up two home runs, but they were both of the solo variety and accounted for the only runs of the game against him. Sheehan turned heads with 102 punchouts over 63 frames in the minors this season, but he struck out just 30 batters over his initial 38.1 frames in the big leagues. He appears to have turned a corner in that regard, fanning 34 batters over his past 22 innings with Los Angeles, including 19 in 10.2 frames across his past two starts. Sheehan's late-season improvement has made him a consideration for the Dodgers' postseason roster -- if he makes it, he could function either as a fourth starter or as a piggyback or long-relief option.

  • Ryan Jeffers MIN C
    Twins' Ryan Jeffers: Knocks in three runs in victory
    25m ago

    Jeffers went 1-for-3 with a home run and three RBI against Oakland in a 6-4 win on Wednesday.

    Jeffers brought Minnesota even at 4-4 with his two-run blast to left field in the sixth inning and added an insurance run with a sacrifice fly in the eighth. The backstop went 14 contests without a long ball between Aug. 25 and Sept. 17 but has now gone deep twice in his past four games. Jeffers already has a career-best 42 RBI this season, and he needs one more homer before the end of the campaign to tie his career-high mark of 14.

  • Jacob Barnes STL RP
    Cardinals' Jacob Barnes: Takes loss Wednesday
    28m ago

    Barnes (0-1) allowed one run on one hit over two-thirds of an inning, taking the loss Wednesday versus the Brewers.

    Barnes got the last two outs of the sixth inning with no trouble, but put a runner on in the seventh, and Matthew Liberatore couldn't prevent the go-ahead run from scoring. Barnes has worked in a low-leverage role with the Cardinals, pitching to a 7.15 ERA, 1.68 WHIP and 6:3 K:BB over 11.1 innings across 11 appearances this season after he was called up Aug. 22.

    Twins' Edouard Julien: Belts 15th homer
    29m ago

    Julien went 2-for-4 with a solo home run against the A's in Wednesday's 6-4 victory.

    Julien began the Twins' half of the first inning with a bang, smacking a solo shot to right field. The long ball snapped an 0-for-11 stretch over his past four games and was his first extra-base hit since Sept. 17. Though he's somewhat faded down the stretch, Julien has still produced a solid .262/.380/.452 slash line with 15 homers, 33 RBI, 58 runs and three stolen bases through 393 plate appearances in his first season in the majors.

    Heat's R.J. Hampton: Agrees to two-way deal with Miami
    10h ago

    The Heat signed Hampton to a two-way contract Wednesday, Ira Winderman of the Sun Sentinel reports.

    Hampton made 47 NBA appearances between the Magic and Pistons in 2022-23, averaging 6.4 points, 1.9 rebounds and 1.1 assists in 16.0 minutes. The 22-year-old guard will take Jamaree Bouyea's two-way spot and should split time between the Heat and the Sioux Falls Skyforce of the G League next season.

    The Heat waived Bouyea on Wednesday, Ira Winderman of the Sun Sentinel reports.

    Clippers' Kobe Brown: Healthy to start training camp
    10h ago

    Clippers president of basketball operations Lawrence Frank said Wednesday that Brown (ankle) is healthy and ready to go for training camp, Justin Russo of the 'Clip & Roll' podcast reports.

    Brown suffered an ankle injury during Summer League action, but as expected, the rookie first-round pick is good to go for training camp. The Missouri product averaged 15.2 points, 7.0 rebounds, 2.6 made three-pointers, 1.8 assists, 1.8 steals and 1.0 blocks in 25.5 minutes per game during Summer League. Brown's three-point efficiency certainly stood out in college, and it appears his shot will translate to the next level, which should help him carve out a rotational spot to start 2023-24.

    Clippers' Moussa Diabate: Good to go for camp
    10h ago

    Clippers president of basketball operations Lawrence Frank said Wednesday that Diabate (rib) is healthy and ready to go for training camp, Justin Russo of the 'Clip & Roll' podcast reports.

    Diabate missed some Summer League action due to a rib injury, but as expected, he's healthy to start the 2023-24 campaign. The 2022 second-round pick is slated to spend a second consecutive campaign on a two-way deal with the Clippers. Last year, Diabate appeared in 22 NBA games (one start) and averaged 2.7 points and 2.3 rebounds in 8.9 minutes per game.

    Clippers' Paul George: Cleared for training camp
    11h ago

    Clippers president of basketball operations Lawrence Frank said Wednesday that George (knee) will be a full participant at training camp, Law Murray of The Athletic reports.

    George missed the final eight games of the 2022-23 regular season as well as the postseason due to a right knee sprain. He was slated to resume workouts at the end of May, so it's not surprising to see him good to go for training camp. Kawhi Leonard (knee) is also expected to be a full participant, so with their two superstars back in action, the Clippers could work their way back into championship contention. Before the injury, George was playing at an extremely high level, averaging 25.1 points, 6.3 rebounds, 5.0 assists and 1.4 steals in 36.0 minutes across 22 appearances.

    Clippers' Kawhi Leonard: Will be full participant at camp
    11h ago

    Clippers president of basketball operations Lawrence Frank said Wednesday that Leonard (knee) will be a full participant during training camp, Law Murray of The Athletic reports.

    Leonard underwent a clean-up procedure in June and was expected to be fully recovered by training camp. While Leonard was expected to be healthy at this point, it's still an encouraging sign to see the oft-injured superstar meeting his rehab timelines after numerous lengthy absences in recent years. Leonard was really starting to look like himself before tearing his meniscus in the Clippers' playoff opener last season. Over the final 35 regular-season games of 2022-23, Leonard averaged 27.3 points, 6.8 rebounds, 4.0 assists and 1.6 steals in 36.1 minutes per game. If he can perform at that level for Los Angeles in 2023-24, the Clippers could find their way back into championship contention.

  • Filip Zadina SJ RW
    Sharks' Filip Zadina: Injury likely not serious
    2h ago

    Zadina sustained an undisclosed injury that isn't believed to be serious in Wednesday's game versus the Ducks, Sheng Peng of San Jose Hockey Now reports.

    Zadina was hurt in the third period and didn't return to the game, but it sounds like that was more of a precaution. The 23-year-old winger is trying to win a roster spot in training camp after signing a one-year, $1.1 million contract with the Sharks following his previous deal with the Red Wings being terminated. If Zadina makes the team, he'll likely play in a bottom-six role.

  • Cole Perfetti WPG C
    Jets' Cole Perfetti: Sustains upper-body injury
    4h ago

    Perfetti was injured on a blindside hit from Martin Pospisil in Wednesday's preseason game versus the Flames, John Lu of TSN reports.

    Perfetti is set to be evaluated further Thursday. The injury comes at a bad time for Perfetti, as the 21-year-old appeared to have the inside edge to earning the second-line center spot on the Jets' roster. Given his history of injuries, this is a bit concerning. Perfetti could be a sleeper pick in fantasy drafts as a potential breakout candidate if he's able to move past this injury quickly.

    Sharks' Radim Simek: Doubtful to finish Wednesday's game
    4h ago

    Simek (lower body) is doubtful to finish Wednesday's game versus the Ducks, Curtis Pashelka of The San Jose Mercury News reports.

    Simek was seen limping down the tunnel in the first period. The defenseman has never played more than 48 games in a season, so any injury at this stage of the campaign is a concerning one. His status should be updated prior to Saturday's preseason tilt against the Kings.

    Maple Leafs' Conor Timmins: Shows off skill in bid for role
    4h ago

    Timmins scored two goals and added two assists in Wednesday's 5-2 win over the Sabres in the Kraft Hockeyville game in St. Thomas, Ontario.

    The town of West Lorne, Ontario earned the title, but the ice surface in their arena is below NHL standards and there are only a few seats, so they moved it to a nearby city. Timmins showed off his strong offensive abilities, which have never been in doubt. He's competing for the seventh-man role because of his glaring defensive issues. Still, spot starting Timmins when he's given the opportunity to showcase his skill can help fantasy managers if they pluck him from the wire.

    Canadiens' Mike Matheson: Held out with LBI
    5h ago

    Matheson is dealing with a lower-body injury, which is the reason for his absence from Wednesday's game versus the Senators, Eric Engels of Sportsnet reports.

    Head coach Martin St. Louis added that Matheson would have played if it was a regular-season contest. Most importantly, Matheson's injury isn't related to the one he sustained at the end of last season. He is day-to-day, and the Canadiens will likely exercise caution before the 29-year-old is cleared to rejoin the lineup for preseason action.

  • Conor Sheary TB LW
    Lightning's Conor Sheary: Good start in new city
    5h ago

    Sheary scored a goal while skating on a line with Brandon Hagel and Anthony Cirelli in Monday's preseason loss to Carolina.

    Sheary is a capable winger when slotted beside the right line mates, and at first glance, it appears as though he has found a good match. Together, the trio had three scoring chances to just one against Monday. They also generated 15 shot attempts while surrendering only six. If Sheary sticks on line two, it would mean he would likely skate with Cirelli and Steven Stamkos. In that situation, he could be a late-round gem.
