Shaq Lawson Headshot

There's still no timetable for Shaq Lawson's (shoulder) return. But the Bills are extremely optimistic he'll be back this season.

Even if Lawson is back this season, it may be too late to make a real impact for the Bills or your fantasy team. The Bills are fine if you are one of the last people to draft your D/ST, but you should be prepared to move on if another unit has a couple of good games.

Pernell McPhee Headshot

Coach John Fox declined to say when Pernell McPhee (knee) is expected to practice and he could begin the year on the regular-season PUP list and miss a minimum of six weeks.

The Bears D/ST appears to be heading in the right direction under John Fox, but this could be a big blow to a unit that doesn't have another noteworthy passrusher. Lamarr Houston and Leonard Floyd could be in line for more snaps until McPhee returns.

Logan Verrett Headshot

Logan Verrett is likely to rejoin the Mets on Tuesday.

Verrett will likely pitch out of the bullpen, though he could wind up back in the rotation at some point. Verrett has been much better in relief this season, with a 2.81 ERA and 2.25 K/BB.

Cody Reed Headshot

Cody Reed left his start Monday at Triple-A with back spasms.

Reed really struggled at the big league level, so even though there isn't any fantasy impact here, you never want to hear a guy go down with an injury. He was 0-7 with a 7.36 ERA at the big league level this season, but the recent back spasms could keep him off the mound for some time. Consider him day-to-day.

Sean Manaea Headshot

Update: Sean Manaea (back) is unsure if he can make his next start.

Manaea was diagnosed with a right rhomboid strain and by the sound of it, missing his next start would be likely. We can't rule anything out at the moment, however, because he could respond very well with treatment and such. Consider him day-to-day, but understand he is in jeopardy of missing his second start of this scoring week.
