Trevor Siemian Headshot

Trevor Siemian is expected to play Week 14. He's out of his walking boot.

Paxton Lynch is just not ready yet and the Broncos are going to do all they can to get Trevor Siemian back out on the field. His coach Gary Kubiak said on Monday that he is doing a "lot better." Siemian has shed the walking boot but we should know more on Wednesday when we find out if he is able to practice with the team. The Broncos face the Titans in Week 14.

Robert Covington Headshot

Robert Covington will not play Tuesday.

We found out on Monday that Robert Covington will not only Monday's game against the Nuggets but the two-game road trip against the Grizzlies and Pelicans with continued knee problems. We can gather that the earliest we would see Covington is December 11th against the Pistons but there is no guarantee of that. Gerald Henderson and Nik Stauskas have been playing heavy minutes, while Hollis Thompson should be more involved as well.

Jahlil Okafor Headshot

Jahlil Okafor will not play Tuesday.

Okafor is dealing with a case of gastroenteritis which kept him our of Monday's game against the Nuggets and now Tuesday's game in Memphis. Okafor should be fine but he will be officially questionable for Thursday's game in New Orleans. Joel Embiid is also getting a night off on Tuesday. Richaun Holmes should see a lot of work at the center position tonight. Dario Saric and Ersan Ilyasova could also man the five spot during certain small ball lineups.

Travis Shaw Headshot

Red Sox trade 3B Travis Shaw to the Milwaukee Brewers.

The Red Sox are reportedly getting Brewers reliever Tyler Thornburg in the deal for Shaw. Thornburg had 13 saves and 20 holds with a 2.15 ERA and 90 strikeouts in 67 innings with the Brewers last season. He will be a terrific setup man for Craig Kimbrel and they will have a great trio once Carson Smith returns from his Tommy John surgery. Shaw is just 26 years old and batted .242 with 16 homers and a .726 OPS this past season for the Red Sox. Pablo Sandoval would take back third base in 2017 while Yoan Moncada waits in the wings. Shaw could take over at third base for Milwaukee, with Jonathan Villar moving to second.

Tyrod Taylor Headshot

Rex Ryan was non-committal when asked about the Bills' future at QB.

"We feel pretty comfortable with Tyrod," is not the most comforting words from Rex Ryan about his Quarterback, "there's a lot of factors that go into everything." Taylor has been very up and down over the past few weeks after a solid start to the season. Long time Bills beat writer Joe Buscaglia said "if it’s me, as of right now, I would be moving on from Taylor." Buffalo owes Tyrod $27.5 million if he remains on the roster through the fourth day of the 2017 league year.

Joel Embiid Headshot

Joel Embiid (rest) will not play Tuesday.

Embiid is coming off of a 16 point performance on Monday night in which he shot 5-of-15 from the field with a three-pointer, four rebounds and five blocks in 24 minutes. Everyone's favorite DFS play will get the night off on Tuesday after struggling a bit against Jusuf Nurkic. No surprise, but Jahlil Okafor is also out for this one, meaning Richaun Holmes could be a sneaky play tonight night.

Tyler Thornburg Headshot

Red Sox have reportedly agreed to a trade to acquire RHP Tyler Thornburg from the Brewers.

Thornburg had 13 saves and 20 holds with a 2.15 ERA and 90 strikeouts in 67 innings with the Brewers last season. Thornburg has a chance to lead the American League in holds next season and would likely be next in line for saves behind Craig Kimbrel, at least until Carson Smith returns from his Tommy John surgery.
