Baltimore Orioles third baseman Manny Machado has been cleared to return to some baseball activities. Machado visited Dr. Neal ElAttrache in Los Angeles on Friday for re-evaluation following his October surgery to repair his torn medial patellofemoral ligament. The evaluation involved extensive testing, with treadmill running, squats, jumps and agility maneuvers.
DeAngelo Williams has rushed for only eight yards on three carries in the last two weeks since RB Le’Veon Bell has returned, but offensive coordinator Todd Haley said he would like to have Williams more involved.
Dennis Pitta (hip) has been working out, but it is not known if he will be able to play when he is eligible to be activated from the Reserve/Physically Unable to Perform list, according to head coach John Harbaugh. Pitta can start participating in practice as soon as Monday, Oct. 19.
