    Blue Jays' George Springer: Could miss minimum
    26m ago

    Springer (elbow) could return from the injured list when first eligible Aug. 15, Arden Zwelling of Sportsnet reports.

    The outfielder had been attempting to play through his elbow issue, but the acquisition of Whit Merrifield gave the Blue Jays a viable everyday alternative in center field and the opportunity to shut Springer down. After receiving an anti-inflammatory injection, the team is hoping he'll be able to return from the IL without need of a rehab assignment. "Hopefully it's a 10-day stint and he's back at it," interim manager John Schneider said this weekend. "It was [getting better.] I think it was just happening slowly. So, what's best for him and what's best for us is to not continue to knock it and piss it off by playing. Hopefully the rest time just gets him back to where he needs to be."

    27m ago

    Hendricks underwent an MRI on his injured shoulder Monday, Tim Stebbins of NBC Sports Chicago reports.

    Cubs' Jason Heyward: Will no longer play for Cubs
    32m ago

    GM Jed Hoyer, according to Patrick Mooney of The Athletic, said Monday that Heyward (knee) will not play again this season nor for the Cubs any longer.

    Heyward has one season left on the eight-year deal he signed with the Cubs back in December of 2015, but the veteran has had a tough couple years and does not fit into the Cubs' rebuilding plans, so the two sides will part ways at some point in the not-too-distant future. Heyward will turn 33 on Tuesday, and per Jesse Rogers of wants to continue playing, so he figures to get a shot with another club in 2023.

    Padres' Trent Grisham: Gets another breather
    41m ago

    Grisham is not in the lineup for Monday's game against the Giants.

    The Padres will face a left-hander for the third straight day, and like he did both Saturday and Sunday he will open on the bench while Wil Myers starts in center field. Grisham is actually faring better against lefties than righties this season, but either way he is still hitting just .194, so don't be surprised if this arrangement continues.

  • Isaiah McKenzie BUF WR
    Bills' Isaiah McKenzie: Misses practice
    8m ago

    McKenzie missed his second straight practice Monday with unspecified soreness, Joe Buscaglia of The Athletic reports.

    Prior to his absence, McKenzie had been off to a strong start in training camp, putting him firmly in the conversation to potentially claim the slot role previously handled by Cole Beasley. Also in the mix for the job is Jamison Crowder, who the report notes turned in a solid showing at Monday's practice. This looks like a job battle that could go either way, but at this stage Buscaglia believes the McKenzie may have an edge "because of the Bills' explosive potential with McKenzie in the lineup."

  • Nick Westbrook TEN WR
    Titans' Nick Westbrook-Ikhine: Listed atop depth chart
    27m ago

    Titans quarterback Ryan Tannehill said Monday that he has a lot of confidence in Westbrook-Ikhine, who is listed as a starter on the team's initial preseason depth chart, AtoZ Sports Nashville reports.

    Tannehill specifically mentioned Westbrook-Ikhine's knowledge of the offense, which allows him to fill in at any position at a moment's notice. That's part of why the 2020 UDFA has managed to stick around on the Tennessee roster, going on three years now, along with some slick route running by the standards of a 6-foot-2, 215-pound receiver. After starting seven of 16 games last year and posting a 48-476-4 receiving line, Westbrook-Ikhine has a chance to enter Week 1 as a starter this year, depending on the progress of first-round pick Treylon Burks and veteran Robert Woods (ACL). The initial preseason depth chart lists Woods as the other starter, while reports out of camp suggest rookie fifth-rounder Kyle Philips is getting some first-team work and has a shot at the slot role (Tennessee's depth chart has only two starting WRs, and two TEs).

  • Matthew Stafford LAR QB
    Rams' Matthew Stafford: Rests arm Monday
    32m ago

    Coach Sean McVay relayed that Stafford (elbow) not throwing during Monday's practice was planned, with the QB expected to resume throwing Tuesday, Sarah Barshop of reports.

    As long as Stafford faces any sort of throwing limitations, his progress will be worth monitoring, but Jourdan Rodrigue of The Athletic notes that the veteran QB isn't too concerned about an elbow issue that he describes as "something that is irritating, at the moment," but one that Stafford is working through in anticipation of being ready for Week 1 action.

  • Treylon Burks TEN WR
    Titans' Treylon Burks: Initially listed as second-teamer
    45m ago

    Burks and fellow rookie Kyle Philips are listed behind Robert Woods (knee) and Nick Westbrook-Ikhine on the Titans' initial unofficial depth chart, Jim Wyatt of the team's official site reports.

    That said, it's not uncommon for teams to list first-year players conservatively on preseason depth charts, but it is a reminder that Burks -- the No. 18 overall pick in the 2022 NFL Draft -- will have to earn his projected early-season role opposite Woods. Wyatt notes that Burks "has been quieter in recent practices," but the Arkansas product still has time to pick up the pace this summer, and, if so, he'll have a chance to justify his ADP, which currently is much higher than either Westbrook-Ikhine or Philips.

  • Rashid Shaheed NO WR
    Saints' Rashid Shaheed: Moves off NFI list
    1h ago

    Shaheed passed his physical Monday and was activated off the Saints' active/NFI list, Katherine Terrell of reports.

    It's an encouraging sign for Shaheed, who had missed training camp up to this point with an undisclosed injury. He'll look to impress his coaches this preseason as he competes for a depth role in the Saints' wide receivers room, but the holder of the FCS record for career kick-return touchdowns could also sneak onto New Orleans' initial 53-man roster as a returner.

    The Lions placed Obeid on the team's reserve/retired list Monday.

In a corresponding move Monday, the Lions signed veteran offensive lineman Kendall Lamm to help restock this unit ahead of the team's first preseason game against Atlanta on Friday.

  • Kevin Durant BKN PF
    Nets' Kevin Durant: Provides ultimatum
    4h ago

    Durant reiterated his trade request during a meeting with Nets owner Joe Tsai on Saturday by saying Brooklyn's brass has to choose between him or the pairing of GM Sean Marks and head coach Steve Nash, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.

    Durant formally requested a trade at the end of June, and the Nets appeared willing to comply but were unable to find a partner due to their lofty return demands. Per Charania, the Celtics, Raptors and Heat remain the primary candidates to acquire Durant, but their offers remain negligible compared to Brooklyn's initial demands. Kyrie Irving opted into his $36.5 million player option for next season after appearing in just 29 contests last year due to his vaccination status, and the Nets further improved their roster by trading for Royce O'Neale, signing T.J. Warren and re-signing Patty Mills and Nicolas Claxton. However, with Ben Simmons (back) and Joe Harris' (ankle) futures uncertain, Durant has expressed that he doesn't have faith in the team's direction, though his ultimatum suggests that could be rectified quickly. Charania also relays that a training-camp holdout could be in place if Durant doesn't get his way.

    5h ago

    Muscala (ankle) signed a two-year, $7 million contract with the Thunder on Monday, Michael Scotto of USA Today reports. The second season is a team option.

    After he initially agreed to a one-year vet minimum contract to remain with the team in June, Muscala will instead receive $3.5 million for 2022-23 and possibly a season beyond. He averaged 8.0 points and 3.0 rebounds in 13.8 minutes per contest last season, and he should continue to operate in a reserve role for the Thunder in 2022-23.

    Forrest signed a two-way contract with the Hawks on Monday, Brad Rowland of reports.

    Forrest appeared in 60 games for Utah last season and averaged 3.3 points, 1.8 assists and 1.7 rebounds in 12.8 minutes, but he was not extended a qualifying offer by the Jazz ahead of the deadline. With Trae Young, Dejounte Murray and Aaron Holiday likely garnering the majority of minutes at point guard, Forrest projects to be an emergency option in case one of the aforementioned trio suffer injuries.

    Bruins' Pavel Zacha: Signs one-year deal with Boston
    2h ago

    Zacha signed a one-year, $3.5 million deal with the Bruins on Monday to avoid arbitration, Mike Morreale of reports.

    Zacha was traded to the Bruins in July after posting a career-high 36 points (15 goals and 21 assists) across 70 games for the Devils last season. The 25-year-old winger should have a good chance to once again produce double-digit goals and 35-plus points while skating in a middle-six role and receiving second-unit power-play minutes in 2022-23.

    Golden Knights' Nicolas Roy: Inks five-year extension
    2h ago

He also put 145 shots on net and tallied 51 PIM through 78 games. The 25-year-old winger should maintain a spot in Vegas' middle-six and see some power-play time for the next several seasons.

    Coyotes' Lawson Crouse: Avoids arbitration, signs extension
    6h ago

    Crouse (hand) signed a five-year, $21.5 million contract extension with the Coyotes on Monday, Arizona Coyotes Insider Craig Morgan reports.

    The deal carries a cap hit of $4.3 million. Now 25, Crouse reached several new career highs last season with 20 goals, 34 points and 17:26 of average ice time over 65 games. He's expected to assume a full-time role in the team's top six and top power-play unit -- where he averaged 1:55 in 2021-22 -- but fantasy managers would be wise not to bank on a repeat of his 15.3 shooting percentage, which was well above his career mark of 10.4.
