ESPN: MRI Reveals No Ligament Damage in Le'Veon Bell's Knee

Pittsburgh Steelers/NFL(PITTSBURGH) -- Pittsburgh Steelers running back Le'Veon Bell had an MRI on his injured knee that revealed no ligament damage, according to ESPN.

Bell was hurt during the team's game Sunday night versus the Cincinnati Bengals when Bengals safety Reggie Nelson laid a hit directly on Bell's right knee.

Despite the positive MRI, ESPN reports if Bell is to play in the team's playoff game Saturday night against the Baltimore Ravens, he will do so through considerable pain.

Bell led the AFC in rushing this season with 1,361 yards. He also caught a Steelers single-season record for running backs 83 passes and scored 11 touchdowns.

Verlander Diagnosed with Shoulder Inflammation

Robert Rogers/MLB Photos via Getty Images (PITTSBURGH) -- Detroit Tigers starting pitcher, Justin Verlander, had an MRI Tuesday that revealed the former Cy Young Award winner has inflammation in his right shoulder but no major structural damage.

"Really, there was no major structural damage," Tigers skipper Brad Ausmus said. "At this point, we don't expect him to go on the DL. We're still kind of evaluating what the treatment options are, but there's a possibility he may only have to miss a start and be back with us."

While it's a relief to the Tigers that Verlander hasn't suffered a major injury, it's still questionable whether he will make his scheduled start Sunday against the Mariners.

Verlander felt discomfort in his shoulder while pitching against the Pittsburgh Pirates during the team's 11-6 loss Monday night. He lasted only one inning, allowing four earned runs, before being pulled.

The 31-year-old Verlander is having a tough season. The former American League MVP has pitched 158 2/3 innings this season, compiling a 10-11 record, 4.76 ERA, 1.42 WHIP, 55 walks and 118 strikeouts.

Ausmus told that he does not expect Verlander to go on the DL.

Wainwright Gets MRI on Elbow, No Damage Found

Eliot J. Schechter/MLB Photos via Getty Images(ST. PETERSBURG, Fla.) -- St. Louis Cardinals starting pitcher Adam Wainwright underwent an MRI Wednesday in St. Louis on his pitching elbow.

Wainwright felt soreness after pitching seven shutout innings in Tuesday's win over Tampa Bay. The Cardinals were worried Wainwright may have had damage to the elbow ligament that was replaced when he had Tommy John Surgery in 2011, but the MRI showed no structural damage.

The team is comparing the discomfort to something similar to tennis elbow. It has not been determined if Wainwright will make his scheduled start on Monday.

"We're going to wait and see how everything goes," Cardinals skipper Mike Matheny said. "We're going to take some more notes and listen to the doctors. I think it was the right medical move to get him home as quick as we could to make sure there wasn't anything more going on than what we thought."

The two-time All-Star has pitched 100 1/3 innings this season, compiling a 9-3 record with a 2.15 ERA, 0.93 WHIP, 21 walks and 91 strikeouts.

Manning Beat Up in Broncos Win Over Chargers

Steve Nehf/ The Denver Post (SAN DIEGO) -- Peyton Manning completed 25-of-36 passes for 330 yards and four touchdowns, but was hurt in the final minutes of the Denver Broncos 28-20 win over the San Diego Chargers Sunday.

With under two-minutes to go in the game, Manning was hit low by the Chargers Corey Liuget on a nine-yard completion to Demaryius Thomas.

The play caused Manning to stay down on the ground which prompted Denver's training staff to run onto the field.

After being attended to, Manning stayed in the game, as the Broncos (8-1) ran out the clock.

“I’m pretty sore,” Manning said. “They kind of got me twice in that lower area. I felt better coming into the game after the bye week, but I’m pretty sure [I’ll] get an MRI tomorrow and will probably know a little more.”

The Chargers (4-5) did mount a nice comeback.

Denver took a 28-6 lead with 11:34 left in the third quarter when Manning and Demaryious Thomas connected for their third touchdown of the game. But the Chargers scored just minutes later when Philip Rivers found Danny Woodhead for a seven-yard touchdown pass. Ryan Mathews rushed for a one-yard touchdown early in the fourth, and a Nick Novak extra point made the score 28-20.

San Diego's comeback stalled after that as the Broncos held strong to remain one-game behind the Kansas City Chiefs in the AFC West.

The game was also the first the Broncos played without head coach John Fox, who had his aortic valve replaced last Monday.

Brian D. Kersey/Getty Images(DETROIT) -- Detroit Tigers starting pitcher Max Scherzer left in the second-inning of the Tigers 12-2 victory over the Oakland Athletics Tuesday night, after experiencing shoulder fatigue.

Scherzer had an MRI on his right shoulder during the game. The Tigers announced no structural damage had been found, but Scherzer would not throw for two days before being re-evaluated.

The 28-year-old fireballer currently leads the Majors in strikeouts with 224.

Matt Kemp to Have MRI on Shoulder

Jonathan Daniel/Getty Images(SAN FRANCISCO) -- Matt Kemp could be hurt again. The Dodgers announced that Kemp will have an MRI Saturday on his left shoulder, and will be out until at least Tuesday.

Kemp, who has already been on the disabled list twice this season with a strained left hamstring, hurt his shoulder after colliding into the outfield wall in Colorado on August 28. Since then, Kemp says the shoulder hurts every time he swings and misses.

"I appreciate him wanting to play, wanting to be tough and go out there, but at some point you've got to be honest and say either I can help the team or I can't help the team," Dodgers skipper Don Mattingly said. "If it's hurting him to swing the bat and if he's not able to do some things, it doesn't do us any good for him to be out there."

Kemp is hitting .315, with 18 home runs and 56 RBIs for the season.

J. Meric/Getty Images(TAMPA, Fla.) -- New York Yankees' outfielder Curtis Granderson will have an MRI on his elbow Wednesday. He was scratched from the Yankees' Tuesday night game versus the Blue Jays due to right elbow soreness.

"We'll do a precautionary MRI tomorrow to make sure it's nothing significant," said Yankees general manager Brian Cashman. "We don't believe it is."

Granderson, 31, had his best season of his career last year hitting a career high 41 homers and knocking in 119 RBIs.

Granderson is hitting .333 in 33 at-bats this spring training.

Chris Paul's MRI Comes Back Negative

Los Angeles Clippers/NBA(PLAYA VISTA, CA) -- The Los Angeles Clippers can breath a sigh of relief.

All-star guard Chris Paul's MRI on his left hamstring came back negative according to the team.

Paul is now listed as day to day and is questionable for Monday's game against New Jersey.

He injured himself during the fourth quarter of the Clippers 102-94 win over the Lakers on Saturday.

If Paul can't play Monday, the Clippers will call up Courtney Fortson from the D-League to add some depth.

Paul is averaging 18 points, 8.4 assists and 2.8 steals per game this season.

Source: Rashard Mendenhall to have MRI on Right Knee

Photo by Justin K. Aller/Getty Images(CLEVELAND) -- Rashard Mendenhall will have a MRI on his right knee to determine if he tore his ACL, according to a source of ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter.

Mendenhall injured his knee during the Steelers 13-9 win over the Browns Sunday.

"It's not good, of course, when a guy goes down in open grass and is not touched by anyone," coach Mike Tomlin said. "Experience tells me that, in general, that's not good."

Mendanhall was hurt in the first quarter of the game and taken to the locker room for tests.  He never went back into the game and was seen leaving the stadium on crutches.

The fourth year running back has rushed for 928 yards this season.
