49ers do not know the verdict of potential NFL discipline for DE Aldon Smith, but they're bracing themselves for a suspension in the range of 6-to-8 games.
As a repeat offender, Smith is certainly going to miss time in 2014 due to suspension, we just do't know how long he will be out. Despite the looking suspension, Smith should be drafted in all IDP leagues because when he is on the field, he is one of the most talented defensive ends in the game. Expect a verdict within the next couple weeks. ANALYST: Matthew Beck
Stephen Piscotty went 1-for-4 with a two-run homer in Tuesday’s 6-4 loss to the Cubs.
Things definitely looked promising for the Cardinals when Piscotty gave the team an early 2-0 lead with with one swing of the bat in the top of the first inning. However, the offense largely dried up for the Cardinals after that and their season is now done. Piscotty was simply outstanding in this NLDS, going 6-for-16 with three homers, a double, six RBI and five runs scored. The sweet-swinging rookie has quickly made a name for himself in St. Louis and around the league. Analysis: Nate Miller
Ravens cut CB Rashaan Melvin on Tuesday.
Melvin started some games late last year for Baltimore, including some playoff games. But after being injured in the preseason and getting benched at halftime of Week 3, he just lost favor with the coaching staff. This isn't your run-of-the-mill no name being cut, so the Ravens are shaking things up a bit. Analysis: Brett Talley
