David Price Expected to Make Next Start Despite Injury

Brian D. Kersey/Getty Images(DETROIT) -- Tigers ace David Price is expected to make his next scheduled start despite suffering a mild hamstring injury in Friday's game against the Royals.

The Tigers announced Price's hamstring injury on Saturday but said they would wait until next week before determining whether or not he would make his next start.

However, Price told reporters he feels "fine" and he anticipates making his next scheduled start Thursday against the Minnesota Twins.

Price suffered the injury on a fluke play in Friday night's victory over Kansas City when he stepped on a bat.

Adam Wainwright Expected to Miss Rest of Season

Elliot J. Schecter/Getty Images(ST. LOUIS) -- St. Louis Cardinals ace Adam Wainwright is expected to miss the rest of the 2015 season due to an Achilles injury he suffered Saturday night while stumbling out of the batter's box, a source told ESPN's Jim Bowden, confirming an earlier report by Fox Sports.

The Cardinals placed Wainwright on the 15-day disabled list Sunday with what they termed as an Achilles injury.  He is scheduled to undergo an MRI on Monday.

"My foot just shut down on me," Wainwright said Saturday after the Cardinals' 5-3 win over the Milwaukee Brewers.

Wainwright had a 2-0 lead when he stumbled getting out of the batter's box on his popup that led off the fifth inning. He was helped off the field by a trainer and left the game.

Indians C Yan Gomes Out 6-8 Weeks with MCL Sprain

Major League Baseball(CLEVELAND) --  Yan Gomes is expected to miss six to eight weeks after an MRI confirmed that the Indians catcher has a sprained right knee.

The Indians placed Gomes on the 15-day disabled list Sunday, one day after he injured his knee on a play at the plate in Cleveland's loss to the Detroit Tigers. The team provided a medical update on Gomes during Sunday's series finale.

The Indians said an MRI performed at the Cleveland Clinic revealed Gomes suffered a "moderate'' sprain to his MCL. His leg was jolted violently by Detroit outfielder Rajai Davis, who slid hard on a force play and clipped the catcher's right leg. Gomes was extended at the time like a first baseman making a catch.

"Losing Gomes, man, that can be a season-killer," Indians manager Terry Francona said Sunday.

Last season, Gomes led all AL catchers in average (.278) and extra-base hits (49). He was second in RBIs (74) and homers (21) and handled one of baseball's youngest starting staffs.

Len Redkoles/NHLI via Getty Images(DETROIT) -- Detroit Red Wings center Pavel Datsyuk is expected to miss four to five weeks due to a separated shoulder.

Datsyuk was hurt during the team's exhibition game Monday against Pittsburgh when he was checked into a stanchion with four minutes to play.

Stepan Out 4 to 6 Weeks with Broken Leg

Toni L. Sandys/The Washington Post(NEW YORK) -- New York Rangers center Derek Stepan is out four to six weeks after fracturing his left fibula during a conditioning drill Wednesday.

Stepan was dealing with a previous leg injury that caused him to miss a scrimmage on Sunday and preseason game on Monday. He was then cleared to practice Wednesday but suffered a non-contact injury during a sprint.

Stepan had three x-rays before getting hurt.

"Everything looked normal and good to go," Rangers head coach Alain Vigneaul said. "Then he stepped on the ice and unfortunately got hurt."

The 24-year-old Stepan played in 82 games for the Rangers last season, scoring 17 goals and dishing out a career-high 40 assists.

Vick Knocked Out of Second Straight Game with Injury

Jim Davis/The Boston Globe via Getty Images(FOXBOROUGH, Mass.) -- For the second straight game Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Michael Vick's final play has resulted in injury.

Vick injured his ribs in the Eagles 27-17 win over the New England Patriots when he was hit by Patriots linebacker Jermaine Cunningham. The play, Vick's sixth of the game, resulted in Vick being sent for X-rays. The X-rays turned out negative but Eagle's receiver DeSean Jackson was worried it was much more when he saw Vick on the ground.

"In my mind I was like not again man," Jackson said. "Last year we dealt a lot of times with him (Vick) getting injured and things like that. He's such a huge part of our offense. Going back in there at halftime and checking him out was pretty cool. He was sore and bruised up a little bit and he was like, man, I can't keep taking hits like that. So hopefully we can protect him up a little better than that."

Eagles head coach Andy Reid said he's not worried if Vick doesn't play in the teams next game against Cleveland, but also commented that he would like to see him get some more game time.

Gronkowski Might Get Special Cleat

Jim Rogash/Getty Images(INDIANAPOLIS) --  The Patriots want Rob Gronkowski to play.

Still unsure of Gronk's status for Sunday's Super Bowl, the Patriots are looking into a special cleat that would help stabilize Gronkowski's high left ankle sprain.

"I think we're going over that tonight, so we will see with the training staff," Gronkowski said.

Many people believe Gronkowski is the key to the Patriots fortunes in Super Bowl 46.

Gronk had a monster season breaking the record for most touchdowns and yards gained for a tight end in NFL history.
