Update: Coco Crisp was scheduled to get an MRI on his stiff neck Friday, after it did not respond to treatment Thursday.
Obviously this isn't a very positive update as an MRI means the team is looking for damage to the vertebrae that may not appear on a normal x-ray. You can consider Crisp day-to-day still because it's early, but you'll have to pay close attention for updates which should come sooner than later. Make sure that you have a contingency plan in place should Crisp be out for any real length of time. Craig Gentry will likely be the fill-in at center for the A's. ANALYST: Howard Bender
Dwayne Bowe plans on revitalizing his career in Cleveland in 2015.
LOL. Literally. Bowe failed to reach 100 receiving yards in a single game last year and didn't catch a single touchdown pass. Alex Smith is no Peyton Manning, but he's significantly more capable than anyone who will be throwing the ball to Bowe in Cleveland. The Browns have brought in Josh McCown this offseason and obviously still have Johnny Manziel in tow. It wouldn't be all that surprising to see third-stringer Thad Lewis get some reps at some point. Maybe it's possible that Johnny Football is better than he looked last year and he can get a little something going with Bowe, but that seems like a long shot. Analysis: Brett Talley
