Firstly, congratulations to Salazar and family on the new addition. Secondly, he won't miss a start as he will only be the list for a few days and his next turn in the rotation comes on Saturday against Miami. His last start was of the quality we have come to expect from the strikeout artist as he K'd 10 in 5 2/3 innings after leaving his first start off the DL after just one inning. In weekly leagues, he's fine to leave in the lineup and Shawn Armstrong has been recalled to take his roster spot.
Pedrioa missed Sunday's game with the family matter as well and now appears to be missing a second straight contest. There is no word on what the matter is but that's not surprising. Brock Holt will be leading off and playing second for Pedroia on Monday. When he rejoins the lineup, he will try to find the hot stroke that had him going 11-11 as of the final at bat on Saturday night.
Watt is still coming back from the back surgery he had performed earlier this offseason but has been able to do more work in drills as the regular season looms about two weeks away. Without him on the field the Texans defense has looked ordinary in the preseason but he is still on track to be ready for Week 1. As long as a setback doesn't crop up on him, he should be good to go.
And thus ends the dramatic saga that was the Bosa/Chargers contract negotiations as he signs a $26 million contract over four years, including a $17 million signing bonus. Bosa has lots of work to do to get ramped up and has less than two weeks to do it before the Chargers open up week 1. He's an elite talent and should plug in immediately for what is expected to be a weak San Diego defense in 2016.
Hundley was expected to see lots of preseason snaps this year but instead has barely played due to an ankle injury. Green Bay thinks they have Aaron Rodgers' successor in Hundley but will be holding the clipboard for several years, as did Rodgers.
The Jets have been careful with Enunwa, who suffered a concussion a couple weeks ago while covering a punt in their second preseason game. He was forced to miss Saturday's preseason game as a result but the team expects Enunwa to be ready for week 1.
Ravens team doctors will still need to clear Perriman before he can suit up, but it will be a welcomed sign for Baltimore and their fans to see him out there. He likely won't have a huge role to start the season but if he progresses, he could come on late and make an impact similar to DeVante Parker in Miami last season.
Crowder has been dealing with knee soreness and was held out of Friday's preseason game against Buffalo. It's not thought to be serious and should be ready to roll as Washington's slot receiver when the regular season kicks off. He's nothing more than a bye-week fill in deep PPR leagues.
The hip injury isn't thought to be serious and the Colts have been using him sparingly throughout practice and the preseason games. Now that Colby Fleener is in New Orleans, Allen could return TE1 numbers for Indy and fantasy owners.
