Steve Smith has been diagnosed with a sprained PCL and is “week-to-week." He will not play Sunday vs the Falcons.
This diagnosis comes directly from the East Bunny. Smith appeared to have reinjured his hand while catching his only pass on Sunday then soon after crumbled to the ground in knee pain. Smith really isn't a factor in the Panthers offense anymore so this wouldn't be a big loss whatsoever in their playoff run.ANALYST: Jeff Mans
Diamondbacks are having internal discussions about whether to pursue Jarrod Saltalamacchia.
Salty has been god awful so far this season, and the Marlins feel comfortable going forward with J.T. Realmuto as their starting catcher. They decided to designate him for assignment, giving the Diamondbacks a chance to go after the veteran catcher. Going to Arizona wouldn't do much for his fantasy value besides for having him remain in the big leagues, so unless he somehow turns it around and gets a deal worked out with the D-Backs, punt on Saltalamacchia.
