    Texans' Noah Brown: Gets green light for camp
    30m ago

    Brown (shoulder) doesn't have an injury designation and has been fully cleared for the start of training camp Thursday, Aaron Wilson of KPRC 2 Houston reports.

    Brown missed the Texans' divisional-round playoff loss to the Ravens in January with a shoulder injury and eventually required offseason surgery to repair a torn labrum. The wideout has completed the recovery process and looks like he'll enter camp without any restrictions. Though staying healthy proved difficult for Brown, he was a productive secondary target in the Houston passing attack when available in 2023, finishing the regular season with 33 catches for 567 yards and two touchdowns on 55 targets over 10 games.

    The Packers placed Oladapo (toe) on the active/NFI list Wednesday, Aaron Wilson of KPRC 2 Houston reports.

    The fifth-round rookie was in a walking boot last month after breaking his toe at the combine and had said he planned to be ready for training camp. He's likely close to 100 percent, but the Packers want to give Oladapo a little more time. He can be activated at any time this summer.

    The Bears placed Amegadjie (quadriceps) on the active/NFI list Wednesday, Aaron Wilson of KPRC 2 Houston reports.

    Amegadjie was injured prior to the NFL Draft earlier this offseason and missed all of OTAs and minicamp after the Bears took him in the third round at No. 75 overall. It's hard to envision Amegadjie pushing Braxton Jones or Darnell Wright for a starting job this summer after all of the missed reps.

    The 27-year-old played in all 17 regular-season games for Baltimore last season, but he missed both playoff contests with a shoulder injury that apparently still isn't 100 percent healthy.

    Cubs' Luis Vazquez: Shelved at Triple-A
    12h ago

    Triple-A Iowa placed Vazquez on its 7-day injured list Friday with an unspecified injury.

    Vazquez is on Iowa's IL for the second time in less than a month, though it's unclear if his latest injury is related to the previous one. He got a brief cup of coffee with the Cubs in late May but has otherwise spent the entire 2024 season at Iowa, where he's slashed .255/.347/.389 with five home runs and one stolen base over 244 plate appearances.

    Kilian (shoulder) made the fifth appearance of his rehab assignment Sunday for Triple-A Iowa, retiring the lone batter he faced on six pitches.

    Mets' Kodai Senga: Needs one more rehab start
    13h ago

    Senga (shoulder/triceps) is expected to make another rehab start with Triple-A Syracuse this weekend, Tim Healey of Newsday reports.

    After building up to 4.2 innings and 67 pitches in his most recent rehab outing with Syracuse this past Sunday, Senga looked like he might have had a chance at making his next start with the big club, but the Mets will instead send him out for one more tune-up appearance in the minors. Assuming Senga is able to build on his pitch count and experiences no setbacks during his upcoming minor-league outing, he could return from the 60-day injured list to make his 2024 Mets debut during the club's home series with Atlanta that begins July 25. Senga was placed on the IL coming out of spring training with a strained right shoulder, then battled triceps inflammation during the rehab process that ended up setting him back further.

    Evgeny Kuznetsov: Getting contract terminated

    Kuznetsov was put on unconditional waivers for the purpose of terminating his contract, the Hurricanes announced Wednesday.

    Kuznetsov had one season remaining on his eight-year, $62.4 million contract. When an NHL agreement is mutually terminated rather than bought out, the remaining cap hit and salary are erased from the books, which will save each of Carolina and Washington $3.9 million for the 2024-25 campaign. Kuznetsov struggled in 2023-24, finishing the regular season with eight goals and 24 points across 63 contests. He's likely to join the KHL's SKA St. Petersburg.

    Avalanche's Kevin Mandolese: Signs with new team
    2d ago

    Mandolese signed a one-year, two-way contract with the Avalanche on Tuesday.

    Mandolese's rights were acquired from Ottawa on Monday, and it didn't take Colorado long to get the 23-year-old goalie under contract. Mandolese is likely to spend most of 2024-25 with AHL Colorado, though he has three games of NHL experience and could see some time with the big club if Alexandar Georgiev or Justus Annunen are sidelined at any point.

    Islanders' Simon Holmstrom: Signs one-year deal
    2d ago

    Holmstrom signed a one-year, $850,000 contract with the Islanders on Tuesday, per PuckPedia.

    Holmstrom and the Islanders were able to work out a deal outside of his qualifying offer, which would have paid him marginally more. That would have been a two-way agreement, but the contract Holmstrom penned instead is a one-way deal, which suggests the team has faith in the winger spending most of the year in the NHL. He produced 25 points over 75 regular-season outings in 2023-24, playing mainly in a middle-six role, though he also shot 20.8 percent, which makes him a candidate for regression.

  • Torey Krug STL D
    Blues' Torey Krug: Dealing with ankle injury
    2d ago

    Krug was diagnosed with pre-arthritic changes in his left ankle and will be evaluated in 6-8 weeks.

    That timeline puts Krug's next check-up at just before training camp. If his ankle gets worse, surgery is on the table, which would cost him the entire 2024-25 campaign. As is, it's likely the defenseman misses at least some time early in the season since his offseason ramp-up will be disrupted. If Krug misses the year, it could lead to a full-time role for Pierre-Olivier Joseph on the third pairing, while Scott Perunovich and Justin Faulk would figure to get the most additional power-play time.
