Reports claim that Niese has been dealing with a knee issue for at least a month, and once he walked the first batter in the first inning of Tuesday's game, Mets manager Terry Collins knew something was wrong. Ultimately he was listed on the DL following Tuesday's game and now it is being reported that he needs surgery. That pretty much spells the end of the season for Niese now.
This makes sense for Carrier, as he is only a half a year removed from surgery. With the tight end position being a strength for the Redskins, Paulsen shouldn't return to practice until he is 100-percent. Coming back at anything less might have him on the chopping block.
The rules in the NFL are if you miss a drug test, that is just as bad as testing positive for one, so because of Square's negligence he will serve a four game suspension. His absence will be felt regardless of his actual talent because the Chargers can ill afford any more defensive line losses with the holdout of rookie DE Joey Bosa.
Hamstring injuries are never something to mess around with, but if the Jets and Forte are 110-percent sure he is good to go then so be it. It's probably for the best that they limit his action however, as hamstrings are easy to reaggravate and this upcoming game is meaningless.
It's being painted as a regular rest day for Kinsler, but it makes sense to get him out of there considering he's logged a lot of innings this season and is in the midst of a slump. Expect him back in the lineup for the Tigers next game.
