The Dallas Cowboys worked out free-agent DE Cory Henry (Florida International) Friday, Aug. 1.

Steelers | Jarvis Jones dealing with injury

Fri, 01 Aug 2014 19:12:11 -0700

Pittsburgh Steelers LB Jarvis Jones (groin) is dealing with a groin injury, but it is not considered a serious injury, according to head coach Mike Tomlin.

Rockies | Carlos Gonzalez aggravates injury

Fri, 01 Aug 2014 19:06:11 -0700

Updating a previous report, Colorado Rockies OF Carlos Gonzalez (ankle) aggravated his right ankle injury in the game Friday, Aug. 1, against the Detroit Tigers, according to the team.

Cowboys | Two players to be released

Fri, 01 Aug 2014 19:06:08 -0700

The Dallas Cowboys will release WR L'Damian Washington and OG Darius Morris.

Red Sox | David Ross leaves game

Fri, 01 Aug 2014 19:05:23 -0700

Boston Red Sox C David Ross (foot) left the game Friday, Aug. 1, against the New York Yankees, and he might have ruptured the tendon in his right foot. Ross was hoping for that, although he'll have immense pain now, the healing of his injury will begin.

FANTASY TIP: If Ross does have a serious injury which requires a stint on the 15-day disabled list, the team could summon minor-leaguers Daniel Butler or Blake Swihart, as Ryan Lavarnway (hand) is not quite ready to return from an injury. If you're looking to get ahead of things, Butler might be your best add in AL-only fantasy formats.

Pirates | GM addresses Gerrit Cole situation

Fri, 01 Aug 2014 19:04:22 -0700

Updating a previous report, Pittsburgh Pirates SP Gerrit Cole (lat) was scratched from his scheduled minor-league rehab start Friday, Aug. 1, so he could throw another bullpen session "to refine some things," according to general manager Neal Huntington.

FANTASY TIP: It's uncertain if Cole suffered some sort of a setback, the team saw something it did not like, or he is making enough progress to where he will not need to appear in a minor-league game and is on his way back to the big club. Fantasy owners need to hang tight until there is more clarity.

Cowboys | Adewale Ojomo signed

Fri, 01 Aug 2014 19:02:17 -0700

The Dallas Cowboys have signed free-agent DE Adewale Ojomo (Titans). Terms of the contract were not disclosed.

Padres | Carlos Quentin uncertain of return

Fri, 01 Aug 2014 18:57:14 -0700

San Diego Padres OF Carlos Quentin (knee) has damage to the bone in his left knee, and he will head out for a second opinion on the injury next week in Los Angeles. "Right now, I'm just working to try to get that opportunity (to play against this season)," Quentin said Friday, Aug. 1. "But I'm not sure."

FANTASY TIP: The brittle Quentin has crushed fantasy owners for the past couple of seasons, as it seems like it is one injury after another. The bone bruise in his left knee is the same injury which forced him out of 39 games earlier this season. At this point, fantasy owners might want to just drop him and let him be someone else's problem.

We're all trying to work to get better, and we're all trying to make improvements. We can all do it. The young players need to come out here and keep working hard, and he's one of those guys who has been out here every day so he's been able to do that. He's been able to make a mistake, get the correction, come out again and not make the mistake the next day, so it's been great."
