Dillon Gee threw again on flat ground at Citi Field on Thursday afternoon. The Mets plan to have Gee get on a mound for the first time since the injury on Friday.
Gee is trying to work his way back from a strained lat muscle and he's trying to do it while only missing three turns in the rotation. If all goes well with throwing off a mound Friday, he could head out to a rehab assignment Sunday which would help him stay on-schedule. No official word on how many rehab starts he will need as that will likely be determined on a day-to-day basis.ANALYST: Howard Bender
Weston Richburg (ankle) has been ruled out for Week 12.
Richburg is one of the Giants' best offensive lineman, and plays a pivotal position at center. The second year player left Week 10 with an ankle injury, and the bye week was not long enough for him to recover. Richburg is questionable for Week 13. Dallas Reynolds will start at center on Sunday against the Redskins. Analysis: Ben Diamond
Rams have waived TE Justice Cunningham.
Zach Hocker signed with the Rams as insurance for the injured Greg Zuerlein, who is questionable for Sunday with a groin injury. Cunningham does not have a reception this season. He could join the Rams' practice squad if he goes unclaimed through waivers. Analysis: Ben Diamond
