Browns have released WR Greg Little.
Well that says a lot about Little that the Browns, a team in dire need of stockpiling receivers, are letting him go. Little was targeted 99 times but came up with just 41 catches for 465 yards and two touchdowns in what was deemed yet another failed season with the receiver. He's got the size and speed to do well, but perhaps he just lacks the innate skills to put it all together on the NFL level. Someone else will kick the tires on him and see, so don't give up on him entirely just yet.ANALYST: Howard Bender
Cubs manager Joe Maddon said Addison Russell will start and bat ninth Tuesday.
The team wasn’t going to bring up a top prospect to have him sit on the bench. The Cubs were getting little production out of their second baseman, so they had Russell work in at second base while in the minors. The fantasy potential for this kid is high and owners should consider picking him up, in case he performs like everyone expects. He is going to take his bumps early, so don’t give up hope on the young star. Analysis: Colby Conway
Al Horford said he's good to go for game two.
Horford suffered a hand injury during the fourth quarter of Game 1 but was able to return and play the final six minutes but with his ring and pinky finger taped together. X-rays taken on the hand were negative but Horford expressed that he was in considerable pain. Given that it's playoff time there was little chance Horford would not be on the court for the Hawks Game 2 matchup against the Nets. Analysis: Jonathan Impemba
