Seahawks DT Mebane Done for Season

Scott Boehm/Getty Images(RENTON, Wash.) -- Seattle Seahawks defensive tackle Brandon Mebane will miss the remainder of the season due to a torn hamstring.

The 29-year-old was placed on the season-ending injured reserve Tuesday; he suffered the injury during the team's win Sunday over the New York Giants.

Mebane has been dominant for a Seahawks team that ranks fourth in rushing yards allowed per game.

“There is nobody like Mebane,” Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll said. “He’s a unique player. He’s had, I think, the best season he’s had since he’s we’ve been here to this point — most consistent, best factor — so that’s a big hit to take.”

Kevin Williams, Tony McDaniel, and Jordan Hill will take Mebane's place on the line.

The Seahawks signed tight end RaShaun Allen from the Minnesota Vikings practice squad to take Mebane's roster spot.

Steve Nash Out for Entire Season

NBA via Los Angeles Lakers(EL SEGUNDO, Calif.) -- Los Angeles Lakers point guard Steve Nash will miss the rest of the season due to a recurring back injury, the Lakers announced Thursday.

"Being on the court this season has been my top priority and it is disappointing to not be able to do that right now," Nash said in a statement released by the team. "I work very hard to stay healthy and unfortunately my recent setback makes performing at full capacity difficult. I will continue to support my team during this period of rest, and will focus on my long-term health."

Nash played in just 15 games for the Lakers last season while dealing with various injuries. He hasn't practiced with the team since Oct. 12, when he tweaked his back while carrying bags.

Nash, 40, is in the final year of a three-year, $28 million deal that will pay him $9.7 million this season.

Nash has played 18 NBA seasons. During that time, he's won two league MVPs and has been named an all-star eight times.

Pitta Out for Season After Undergoing Hip Surgery 

Al Bello/Getty Images(OWINGS MILLS, Md.) -- Baltimore Ravens tight end Dennis Pitta had season-ending hip surgery on Monday.

It's the second time in a year that Pitta has undergone hip surgery, leaving his NFL future in doubt.

“I don’t know the ramifications of that long-term,” Ravens head coach John Harbaugh said. “The specialists, they’ll have to give us information on that. I really don’t know. I’m going to be really hopeful for Dennis’ return, and I’m sure we will learn about that as we go.”

Pitta was hurt during the team's win over the Cleveland Browns Sunday after catching a pass. He turned to make the catch, and when he twisted back around, he couldn't put all of his weight on his right leg and fell to the ground.

The 29-year-old Pitta, who during the off-season received a five-year, $32.5 million contract, had 16 catches for 125 yards in three games this season.

With Pitta out, the Ravens will have to depend upon Owen Daniels and Kyle Juszczyk to handle the team's tight end duties.

Lions LB Tulloch Done for Season

Darrin Klimek/Thinkstock(ALLEN PARK, Mich.) -- Detroit Lions linebacker Stephen Tulloch will miss the remainder of the season after tearing the ACL in his left knee Sunday in the Lions win over the Green Bay Packers.

The injury occurred while Tulloch was celebrating a sack of quarterback Aaron Rodgers in the first quarter.

Tulloch stayed in the game for one more play before leaving the field for good.

“Obviously he’s disappointed,” Lions head coach Jim Caldwell said. “He’s been one of our fine team leaders, but obviously he’ll still be around helping our guys with a little instruction and things of that nature."

The 29-year-old Tulloch has never missed a game since being drafted in 2006.

Tulloch had 135 tackles, 3.5 sacks, and an interception last season for the Lions.

Tigers SS Jose Iglesias Officially Ruled Out for Season

Brian D. Kersey/Getty Images(DETROIT) -- The Detroit Tigers announced Wednesday that shortstop Jose Iglesias is officially out for the season.

Iglesias, 24, has yet to play in 2014 due to stress fractures in both legs.

The Tigers recalled shortstop Eugenio Suarez from Triple-A Toledo Wednesday and designated infielder Danny Worth for assignment.

"He continues to make progress, the doctor's happy with the progress he made, but at this point, he basically has been ruled out for the season," Tigers general managers Dave Dombrowski said. "We had always thought that, but we had maintained maybe a little bit of hope there."

Iglesias played in 109 games with Boston and Detroit last season, hitting .303 with three home runs and 39 runs scored.

ESPN: Cowboys LB Sean Lee Has Torn ACL

Ronald Martinez/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- Dallas Cowboys linebacker Sean Lee was told on Tuesday that he tore his left ACL and will probably miss the entire 2014 season, according to ESPN's Ed Werder.

Lee was hurt during the team's first organized activity workout when he was blocked to the ground by offensive lineman Zack Martin. Lee needed to be helped to the locker room by the members of the Cowboys' training staff.
Lee had an MRI Tuesday and while the Cowboys haven't made an official statement, ESPN says Lee was told the MRI confirmed the tear in his anterior cruciate ligament in the left knee.
This isn't the first time Lee tore an ACL. In 2008, while at Penn State, Lee tore his right ACL and in 2009 he partially tore his left ACL.

"Sean has had to deal with injuries throughout college and also here in the NFL," Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett. "He really does everything he can to get himself ready to play. Unfortunately, he had to deal with a few of those things, but he's as mentally tough as an individual I've ever been around. Whatever the circumstances are, he always puts his best foot forward and strives to be his best. I don't anticipate this being any different."

The 27-year-old Lee has played in 46 games during four seasons with the Cowboys. During that time Lee has compiled 193 tackles, 11 interceptions, and two forced fumbles.

Carmelo Anthony Has Small Tear in Right Shoulder

Steve Russell/Toronto Star via Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- New York Knicks forward Carmelo Anthony has a small tear in his right labrum and will sit out the team's last two games of the season, the Knicks announced Tuesday.

The injury will not require surgery and Anthony will be re-evaluated in about a month, according to the Knicks.

Despite aggravating the shoulder injury on Apr. 2 against the Nets, Anthony continued to play.

"Obviously, he knew it was bothering him when he hurt it two weeks ago but he hung in with us trying to make this last push to get in the playoffs," Knicks head coach Mike Woodson said.
The 30-year-old Anthony averaged 27.4 points and a career-best 8.1 rebounds per game this season. It is the first time in Anthony's 11-year NBA career he's on a team that will miss the playoffs.
