Kansas City police confirm Chiefs CB Sean Smith arrested for driving under the influence on Monday.
The Chiefs demoted Smith to second-team on their OTA's depth chart after learning that Smith had been arrested for DUI after losing control of his vehicle while making a left turn and striking a light post, unbeknownst to Smith in front of a cop car that happened to be patrolling the area, at about 12:30 am CT Monday morning. No one was hurt in the incident and if the NFL's track record is any indication, only Smith's bank account will be hurt by this incident, and not the team. The NFL has not shown a history of suspending players for this type of behavior, but no official penalty has been handed down by the league as of yet so the chance of a suspension is still a possiblity.ANALYST: Michael Pichan
Nationals placed Stephen Strasburg on the 15-day disabled list with neck tightness.
Something had to be wrong with Strasburg, given his season-long struggles. He has not shown his usual control with his off-speed pitches and needs to get healthy to return to his expected dominant self, and the DL trip is a start in that direction. There is no hint that the neck issue has been the cause of his problems this season, but at least he gets to take some time off to be examined and hopefully set on track to pitch well again.

Grizzlies are exploring signing center Greg Oden.
Oden, the former first overall draft pick in the 2007 draft, last played for the Heat in 2014. Knee injuries have interrupted his career, limiting him to two seasons with Portland and the aforementioned time with Miami. He may decide to attend the upcoming Grizzly free agent camp in June, but nothing is in concrete yet. Analysis: Ivar G. Anderson
