Bug Howard Headshot

Howard signed with the Browns' practice squad Tuesday.

Howard was originally signed by the Colts as an undrafted free agent out of North Carolina but was unable to make the team's final roster. He'll serve as an emergency option at wide receiver in Cleveland as part of their practice roster.

Adam Jones (R) Headshot

Jones (legs) is not in the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Pirates, Eduardo A. Encina of The Baltimore Sun reports.

He has been battling leg soreness in recent weeks, which is by no means uncommon this time of year. It was bad enough to force him from Sunday's game, and Jones will miss at least one start as a result of the issue. Austin Hays will start in center field and lead off Tuesday while Chris Davis bats cleanup.
3:56 pm (EST)
Lonnie Chisenhall (L) Headshot

Chisenhall (calf) is not in the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Twins.

Chisenhall hasn't played since Sept. 14 due to calf soreness, and the issue will force him to miss yet another contest. He didn't travel with the Indians over the weekend, staying back in Cleveland to continue rehabbing his injured calf instead, but there hasn't been any word of his progress, so it's still unclear when he may be able to return to action. In the meantime, Austin Jackson will continue to start in left field in his place.
3:56 pm (EST)
Yadier Molina (R) Headshot

Molina (head) is not in the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Cubs.

It's not clear where Molina stands in the concussion protocol after taking two foul balls off his catcher's mask in Monday's game, but he will not start Tuesday. Carson Kelly will get the nod behind the plate in Molina's place.
3:54 pm (EST)
Lawrence Timmons Headshot

The Dolphins reinstated Timmons from his indefinite suspension Tuesday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports. Timmons will play in Sunday's game against the Saints.

After Timmons went AWOL ahead of the Dolphins' Week 2 win over the Chargers to tend to a personal matter, the team suspended the linebacker and didn't provide any indication when he would return. His suspension will last a little over a week, and the expectation is that he'll resume practicing with the team Wednesday in preparation for Sunday's game. Chase Allen ended up filling in at outside linebacker in the Week 3 loss to the Jets and recorded seven tackles, but is expected to see his snap count drop dramatically in Week 4 with Timmons back in the fold.

Kevin Czuczman Headshot

Czuczman was placed on waivers Tuesday in order to reassign him to AHL Wilkes-Barre/Scranton , James Mirtle of The Athletic Torontoreports.

Czuczman would have needed a phenomenal camp in order to win a spot on the 23-man roster, so it should come as no surprise the organization decided to move him down to the minors. The 26-year-old last appeared in an NHL contest during the 2013-14 season when he was with the Islanders in which he notched a pair of helpers. While he does have offensive upside, the Pens depth on the blue line all but guarantees the London, Ontario native will spend the entire year with the Baby Pens.
3:52 pm (EST)
Jose Martinez (R) Headshot

Martinez (thumb) is not in the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Cubs.

Martinez received a cortisone shot Sunday in hopes of reducing the swelling in his thumb, but it has apparently not done the trick just yet, as he is not ready to start two days later. Matt Carpenter will continue manning first base while Martinez remains sidelined.
3:51 pm (EST)
Yan Gomes (R) Headshot

Gomes is not in the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Twins.

Gomes will take a seat for the second straight contest as him and Roberto Perez continue to split time behind the dish. He's started 11 of the Indians' 22 games this month, and should continue to share duties with Perez in the final week.
3:49 pm (EST)
Frank Corrado Headshot

Corrado was placed on waivers by the Penguins on Tuesday, James Mirtle of The Athleticreports.

Considering what the Pens gave up to bring in Corrado -- Eric Fehr, Steve Oleksy and a fourth-round pick -- fans will no doubt be disappointed to see he was unable to earn a spot on the 23-man roster. The 24-year-old heads back to AHL Wilkes-Barre/Scranton, where he registered one goal and three helpers last season.
3:48 pm (EST)
Anthony Rendón (R) Headshot

Rendon (foot) is in the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Phillies, Jamal Collier of MLB.com reports.

Rendon got a day off Monday in order to give his sore foot a rest, but he is ready to get back in the lineup just one day later. He will man the hot corner like he regularly does and hit third in the Nationals' batting order.
