  • Jacob Phillips CLE LB
    Texans' Jacob Phillips: Houston bound
    2h ago

    Phillips (pectoral) inked a one-year deal with the Texans on Monday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

    Phillips spent last year on Cleveland's injured reserve due to a torn pectoral muscle. It was his second straight season-ending pectoral injury, as the same injury ended his 2022 campaign early. The 2020 third-round pick's addition to the Texans' offseason roster indicates his health is back to up to par. He will now compete for a role at linebacker in Houston.

    Patriots' Mitchell Wilcox: Inks new deal
    5h ago

    Wilcox signed a contract with the Patriots on Monday, Doug Kyed of the Boston Herald reports.

    Wilcox now will call New England home after spending the first three campaigns of his career In Cincinnati. The 27-year-old appeared in all 17 regular-season games in 2023, mostly operating as the Bengals' No. 3 option at tight end and recording nine catches (on 12 targets) for 56 yards. If he can make the Patriots' roster this year, he'll likely be a depth option for them, too.

  • Cole Holcomb PIT LB
    Steelers' Cole Holcomb: Future status still in question
    5h ago

    Holcomb (knee) still doesn't have a timeline for when he may be able to return to the field, Adam Borst of SteelersNow.com reports.

    Holcomb suffered a significant knee injury Week 9 against the Titans that required season-ending surgery to repair. Since then, there has been speculation that the damage done was enough to keep the North Carolina product on the sidelines permanently, bringing an early end to his career. However, according to GM Omar Khan, Holcolmb is "working extremely hard to get back. I don't really have much to add on a timeline." Khan further stated, "It was a major injury, but he is working hard and I'm optimistic about all the effort he's going to put into getting back on the field."

  • Brandon Aiyuk SF WR
    49ers' Brandon Aiyuk: Discussing deal with team
    6h ago

    GM John Lynch said Monday that the 49ers are having "good talks" with Aiyuk, who hasn't been at the team facility for the offseason program, Matt Barrows of The Athletic reports.

    Aiyuk is unlikely to show up for voluntary workouts without a new contract in hand, but that doesn't necessarily mean he'll hold out from mandatory minicamp in June if the two sides haven't reached an agreement by then. The 26-year-old's agent denied reports of a trade request last weekend, and it sounds like there's still hope for a long-term contract heading into the fifth and final year of Aiyuk's rookie deal. He's scheduled to make $14.12 million under the fifth-year option, whereas a multi-year deal likely would entail a large signing bonus and an annual average value well north of $20 million. Making it work for the 2024 season isn't an issue, but the Niners may be hesitant to pay Aiyuk at market value long term when they already have six players scheduled for cap hits north of $20 million in 2025, including WR Deebo Samuel and TE George Kittle. Even then, it's a workable situation, as they've got a starting QB on a late-round-rookie contract and don't owe large sums of guaranteed money beyond the current year to anyone besides DE Nick Bosa.

  • Zach Wilson NYJ QB
    Broncos' Zach Wilson: Traded to Denver
    6h ago

    The Jets are trading Wilson to the Broncos for a late-round pick swap, Jeff Howe of The Athletic reports.

    The Jets will give up the 256th pick in the 2024 NFL Draft and receive pick No. 203. They'll also hold some of Wilson's salary, with the 24-year-old scheduled for $5.45 million in guaranteed compensation for the final year of his rookie contract. This could give Wilson a shot to compete for a starting job, depending on what the Broncos do in the upcoming draft. Jarrett Stidham and Ben DiNucci are the other QBs on Denver's roster, with Stidham the favorite to start Week 1 if no early draft pick is added to the room.

    Bengals' Sam Hubbard: Bouncing back from ankle surgery
    8h ago

    Hubbard underwent an offseason procedure to address an ankle injury that he dealt with last season, Ben Baby of ESPN.com reports.

    Per the report, Hubbard -- who missed two regular-season games in 2023 due to a right ankle issue -- indicated that he had a complete deltoid reconstruction in his ankle as well as a TightRope procedure. Now that the defensive end has had his ankle repaired, Geoff Hobson of the Bengals' official site reported Monday that Hubbard says he's a few weeks ahead of schedule in his recovery and believes that he'll be ready for training camp.

    Orioles' Peyton Burdick: Booted from 40-man roster
    2h ago

    Burdick was designated for assignment Monday.

    Burdick was removed from the 40-man roster to make room for David Banuelos, who had his contract selected from Triple-A Norfolk on Monday. Burdick has appeared in 16 games this season for the Tides, slashing .182/.333/.455 with four homers, nine RBI, one stolen base and 11 runs.

    Orioles' David Banuelos: Joins major-league roster
    2h ago

    Banuelos had his contract selected from Triple-A Norfolk by the Orioles on Monday.

    Banuelos was optioned outright to Norfolk on Friday after clearing waivers, but he'll now return to the big-league roster. The catcher appeared in the team's 11-3 win over the Twins on April 16, failing to get on base in his only at-bat of the season. He'll replace Austin Hays (calf) on Baltimore's roster after Hays was placed on the 10-day injured list Monday while outfielder Peyton Burdick was designated for assignment, opening a spot on the 40-man roster for Banuelos.

    Hays (calf) was placed on the 10-day injured list Monday.

    Hays left Saturday's contest due to tightness in his calf, and after further evaluation, it's been determined that he'll require a trip to the injured list. Manager Brandon Hyde stated after the move that he's hopeful Hays will be ready to be activated from the IL by the time his 10 days are up, per Andy Kostka of TheBaltimoreBanner.com. David Banuelos had his contract selected from Triple-A Norfolk and Peyton Burdick was designated for assignment in corresponding moves.

  • Simeon Woods Richardson MIN SP
    Twins' Simeon Woods Richardson: Likely entering MLB rotation Friday
    2h ago

    Woods Richardson will likely start Friday's game for the Twins in Anaheim, Bobby Nightengale of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

    Louie Varland was dispatched to Triple-A St. Paul on Monday and manager Rocco Baldelli confirmed that Woods Richardson is lined up to join the big-league rotation. Woods Richardson was effective in his lone MLB start earlier this season at Detroit, and he averaged 93.4 mph with his fastball in that outing after sitting at 91 mph with that pitch in 2022 and 2023. If Woods Richardson can just tread water in this role, he could stick in the big-league rotation indefinitely, given Minnesota's lack of viable options behind him on the organizational depth chart.

    Vanderbilt (foot) "exerted himself at a high level" during Monday's practice, Dave McMenamin of ESPN.com reports.

    35m ago

    Suggs (knee) started the second half of Monday's Game 2 against the Cavaliers, Chris Fedor of The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.

    Suggs was spotted warming up on the court ahead of the second half, and he feels healthy enough to give it a go. He'll look to provide his team with a spark as the Magic face a 14-point deficit to begin the third quarter.

    Clippers' Kawhi Leonard: Game-time call for Game 2
    1h ago

    Leonard (knee) is questionable for Tuesday's Game 2 against the Mavericks, Law Murray of The Athletic reports.

    Leonard took part in Monday's practice, and while it was reported to be a non-contact session, it appears all went well. The team will likely re-assess the star forward in the morning and see how he fares in shootaround and pregame warmups before making a decision on his availability for Game 2.

    Magic's Jalen Suggs: Questionable to return
    1h ago

    Suggs has been diagnosed with a left knee strain and is questionable to return to Monday's Game 2 against Cleveland.

    The fact that Suggs hasn't been immediately ruled out after suffering what appeared to be a serious injury is great news for the Magic. The team will likely continue to monitor its starting point guard as the game wears on to determine whether he can check back in.

  • Giannis Antetokounmpo MIL PF
    Bucks' Giannis Antetokounmpo: Tagged as doubtful
    1h ago

    Antetokounmpo (calf) is listed as doubtful for Tuesday's Game 2 against Indiana.

    Antetokounmpo's left Soleus strain appears on track to keep him sidelined for Game 2, although Milwaukee can breathe a huge sigh of relief after controlling Game 1 at home. Antetokounmpo suffering a calf-related setback would be a worst-case scenario for the Bucks, so proceeding with caution appears likely, but his status will still need to be monitored until officially ruled out.

    Suggs needed assistance to get off the court during Monday's Game 2 against the Cavaliers after appearing to suffer a left leg injury, Jason Beede of the Orlando Sentinel reports.

    Suggs suffered the injury in the first quarter after making contact with Donovan Mitchell, and he stayed down after the play. If Suggs is unable to return, look for Markelle Fultz and Cole Anthony to shoulder the load at point guard.

    2h ago

    Pageau (lower body) is expected to suit up for Game 2 against the Hurricanes on Monday, Arthur Staple of The Athletic reports.

    Pageau was banged up and couldn't play in Game 1, but he'll limit that absence to just one game. The veteran forward tallied 11 goals and 33 points while dressing in all 82 games during the regular season. He was held to three points over his final 10 appearances.

    2h ago

    Ullmark will start Game 2 at home against Toronto on Monday, Chris Johnston of The Athletic reports.

    Boston will continue to alternate between Ullmark and Jeremy Swayman as they did for most of the regular season. Ullmark is 6-4-1 with a .923 save percentage since the start of March, though he ended the regular season with a loss against Ottawa. For the season, he went 22-10-7 with a 2.58 GAA in 40 appearances.

    Maple Leafs' William Nylander: Out Monday
    2h ago

    Nylander (undisclosed) will not suit up for Game 2 against the Bruins on Monday, Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet reports.

    Nylander was a game-time call, so he at least appears to be close to returning. He dressed in all 82 games during the regular season, racking up 40 goals and a career-high 98 points. Barring a setback, he should have a decent shot at getting back in the lineup for Game 3 on Wednesday.

    Andersen will patrol the home crease in Game 2 against the Islanders on Monday, per Walt Ruff of the Hurricanes' official site.

    Andersen will make consecutive starts for the first time since returning from a blood clotting issue in early March. He has surrendered two goals or fewer in 10 of 11 outings during that span, including Saturday's 3-1 win over the Islanders to begin the 2024 playoffs.

  • Arvid Holm COL G
    Avalanche's Arvid Holm: Back in AHL
    4h ago

    Holm was reassigned to AHL Colorado on Monday.

    In a corresponding move, Ivan Prosvetov was summoned from the minors. Even though Alexandar Georgiev surrendered seven goals on 23 shots in Sunday's 7-6 loss to Winnipeg in Game 1, Holm remained on the bench as the backup because Justus Annunen (illness) was unavailable. If Annunen remains out, Prosvetov could start or serve as Georgiev's backup in Game 2 versus the Jets on Tuesday.

  • Ivan Prosvetov COL G
    Avalanche's Ivan Prosvetov: Added to NHL roster
    4h ago

    Prosvetov was recalled from AHL Colorado on Monday.

    Prosvetov will switch places with Arvid Holm, who was sent down in a corresponding move. Unlike Holm, the 25-year-old Prosvetov has NHL experience, albeit limited, having played in 24 games for the Coyotes and Avalanche over the last four seasons. In those appearances, the backstop is 8-9-2 with a 3.70 GAA and a .881 save percentage. With Justus Annunen still under the weather, it appears the Avalance want a more experienced reserve option behind Alexandar Georgiev.
