    Cameron Dicker: Finds new opportunity
    11m ago

    Dicker signed with the Eagles' practice squad Tuesday, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.

    Dicker was a 2022 undrafted free agent out of Texas, who had spent time with the Rams and Ravens during camp. With Jake Elliot (leg) questionable for Sunday against the Eagles, Dicker will likely be the Eagles' kicker, if Elliot is unable to go.

    Rams' Brian Allen: Return looming closer
    15m ago

    Allen (knee) has a chance to return for Sunday's game against the Cowboys, Gilbert Manzano of The Orange County Register reports.

    Head coach Sean McVay said "He is making good progress. Whether that's this week or the following week, we're kind of keeping all options open and available," per Manzano. Allen missed the Rams' last three contests due to a knee procedure he underwent after the team's opener against the Bills, but it sounds like he's close to reclaiming his normal role as Los Angeles' starting center. If he's unable to play in Week 5 against the Cowboys, Jeremiah Kolone would likely receive the starting nod, since backup center Coleman Shelton is set to miss time with a high-ankle sprain he suffered Monday against the 49ers.

    Rams' Jordan Fuller: Will miss time
    45m ago

    Fuller aggravated his hamstring injury in Monday night's loss to the 49ers and will miss a couple of weeks, according to head coach Sean McVay, Jourdan Rodrigue of The Athletic reports.

    Fuller was absent in Week 3 and was questionable heading into Monday's game with the 49ers. The third-year safety ultimately played 73 percent of the team's snaps on defense, recording two tackles and forcing a fumble. If he were to miss two weeks, he would not return until Week 8 in a rematch against the 49ers, as the Rams have a bye in Week 7.

    Rams' Coleman Shelton: Endures high-ankle sprain
    1h ago

    Shelton suffered a high-ankle sprain during Monday's 24-9 loss to the 49ers, Jourdan Rodrigue of The Athletic reports.

    Shelton stepped in as the team's starting center over the past three weeks, after fellow lineman Brian Allen underwent a knee procedure after the team's opener against Buffalo. The 299-pounder is now looking at a 4-to-6 week recovery period, but Allen has a solid chance to return and replace Shelton at center just in time for Sunday's matchup with the Cowboys.

    Vikings' Ryan Connelly: Removed from PUP list
    1h ago

    The Vikings activated Connelly (knee) from their reserve/PUP list Tuesday, Craig Peters of the team's official site reports.

    Connelly suffered a torn ACL against the Steelers in December, and he was later placed on Minnesota's reserve/PUP list in August. The 27-year-old was required to miss the team's first four games, but he'll now be eligible to return Week 5 against the Bears. Connelly is expected to be a heavy contributor on special teams moving forward, as he's amassed 410 special teams snaps compared to just one defensive snap over the last two seasons.

    Vikings' Lewis Cine: Placed on IR
    1h ago

    The Vikings placed Cine (leg) on injured reserve Tuesday, Craig Peters of the team's official site reports.

    Cine suffered a compound fracture in his left leg during Sunday's 28-25 win over the Saints, and he's since undergone successful surgery Tuesday. Although the 22-year-old safety is eligible to return later in the year after being placed on IR, the procedure Cine underwent was presumably season-ending, meaning he'll likely target a full recovery for the 2023 season. The 199-pounder played two defensive and 34 special teams snaps across three games.

    Orioles' Spenser Watkins: Will start season finale
    11m ago

    Watkins is scheduled to start Game 2 of Wednesday's doubleheader against the Blue Jays, Roch Kubatko of MASNSports.com reports.

The 30-year-old produced a 3.80 ERA across his first 14 outings of the season but has surrendered 27 runs over his past 38 innings, and he'll look to finish the campaign on a high note Wednesday.

    Giants' Carlos Rodon: Not starting Tuesday
    41m ago

    Rodon won't start Tuesday against the Padres and is unlikely to pitch in Wednesday's season finale, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

    Manager Gabe Kapler indicated Monday the left-hander may not make his final turn through the rotation Tuesday, and Alex Cobb has now been announced as the starter for the penultimate game of the season. Rodon threw a career-high 178 frames in 2022 and had a 2.88 ERA, 1.03 WHIP and 237:52 K:BB with a 14-8 record. He joined the Giants on a two-year, $44 million deal in March but can opt out of the contract, and is likely to do so, since he exceeded 110 innings.

    Yurtseven will start in Tuesday's preseason game agains the Timberwolves, Anthony Chiang of the Miami Herald reports.

    Yurtseven is competing for a starting job this season. It is notable that he is starting alongside Bam Adebayo, as these two would have to fit together offensively if Yurtseven wants to maintain his starting spot. The young big man will likely have to provide solid floor spacing in order to make this front court pairing work.

    Doncic (rest) isn't expected to take the floor during Wednesday's preseason opener versus the Thunder, Nick Crain of SI.com reports.

    Doncic is expected to sit some during the preseason to rest up after spending his summer playing for Slovenia in the Eurobasket tournament. It's unclear if or how much we will see him in preseason action, but, assuming he sits as expected, Doncic's next chance to take the floor would surface Friday against the Magic.

    Islanders' Robin Salo: Likely to make the team
    2m ago

    Salo is the favorite to be one of the Islanders' top six defensemen to enter the season, Andrew Gross of Newsday reports.

    There were two job openings on the Islanders entering training camp as Zdeno Chara, and Andy Greene are no longer with the team. Salo might be the top defensive prospect for the Islanders, and he did play in 21 games for the team last season. Salo had one goal and five points in those games but failed to impress former head coach Barry Trotz. Salo should have a longer leash under boss Lane Lambert.
