Although the wide receiver returned to practice for the Cowboy from MJL456's blog

MINNEAPOLIS -- When Danny Salazar departed the mound early, Mike Napoli flexed his muscle and Clevelands bullpen followed with a stifling performance. James Neal Jersey .Thats the way a first-place team maintains a division lead down the September stretch.Napoli hit a mammoth home run on the first pitch of the fifth inning to put the Indians in front, and five relievers allowed only one hit over five scoreless innings in a 5-4 victory over the Minnesota Twins on Friday night to stay six games ahead of Detroit in the AL Central.It has to take all of us to do it. Im in a position where I can, at any time, change a game, and I know that. Im not going up there just trying to hit singles, Napoli said. But it starts with the guys ... to get us to that point.The Indians won for the ninth time in their last 11 games, despite the removal of Salazar after four innings due to tightness in his right forearm as a precaution. Salazar was on the disabled list for elbow inflammation a month ago, but manager Terry Francona said this issue was muscular and not structural.Well see how he feels and then well go from there, Francona said.Napolis drive off Tyler Duffey (8-11) landed in the third deck above left field three sections over from the foul pole.He was obviously sitting on it, Duffey said.The homer, Napolis 32nd, was estimated by the Twins at 456 feet.I cant even hit a golf ball that far, Francona said.That followed Byron Buxtons two-out, two-run homer that tied the game against Salazar in the fourth and glanced off the back wall of the Twins bullpen in left-center. The 22-year-old Buxton has five of his eight career home runs in the eight games since his recall from Triple-A on Sept. 1.Joe Mauer also went deep and Brian Dozier added an RBI double, but the Twins lost for the 23rd time in their last 29 games.The Indians scored four runs in the third inning against Duffey, whose low throw to second base on a comebacker by Francisco Lindor not only cost him a potential double play but contributed in a major way to the rally. Lonnie Chisenhall added a two-run double, and Tyler Naquin tacked on an RBI single.Salazar has not won in seven starts since July 19. One of the four runs the right-hander allowed was unearned due to a fielding error by second baseman Jason Kipnis on the speedy Buxtons bouncer, but his ERA after the All-Star break is still 7.44.Joe Colon (1-1) completed the fifth inning for the victory and Cody Allen finished the ninth for his 27th save in 30 attempts, as the Indians started their final stretch of 23 games, all intra-division affairs. Theyre only 9-8 against the Twins, who are on track for 100-plus losses.PERSONAL RECORDSNapoli already has a career high in home runs, and his latest long ball pushed his RBI total to 93, surpassing his previous career high set in 2013 with Boston. Napoli has three homers in the last five games.I feel a lot more comfortable, he said. I was going through periods where I was just trying to grind out at-bats until I could find it.FIELDING FLUBSThe Twins lead the league with 110 errors, already their highest season total in five years and on pace for their most since 1980. They made three highlight-reel plays, diving stops of grounders by Mauer at first and Miguel Sano at third and a sliding catch by Max Kepler in right, but the mistake by Duffey made a bigger impact.The errors are concerning, manager Paul Molitor said.TRAINERS ROOMIndians: Roberto Perez, sharing the catcher role with Chris Gimenez while Yan Gomes (separated shoulder) is working his way back on a rehab assignment, struck out a season-high three times.Twins: RHP Trevor May (back strain) and LHP Tommy Milone (biceps tendinitis) were reinstated from the DL before the game.UP NEXTThe Indians will send rookie RHP Mike Clevinger (2-2, 5.30 ERA) to the mound for the middle game of the series. His seventh major league start will come against LHP Hector Santiago (11-8, 4.91 ERA), who in his last turn recorded off his first victory for the Twins in six starts since arriving by trade. Jake Bischoff Jersey . - Oakland Raiders running back Rashad Jennings was speaking to a group of local high school students earlier this week when the conversation turned to the importance of being prepared when opportunities in life arise. Alex Tuch Golden Knights Jersey . At a Manhattan federal court hearing, attorney Jordan Siev said his law office has gotten more evidence nearly every day to support its lawsuit accusing MLB and Selig of going on a "witch hunt" to ruin Rodriguezs reputation and career. He said the defendants went "way over the line. . Terms of the deal were not immediately available. The 26-year-old finished last season with Clevelands Triple-A affiliate in Columbus after signing with the Indians in August. To help you set your lineups and avoid starting a player who doesnt take the field, we will be posting fantasy-relevant updates and analysis here as NFL teams release their Sunday inactive lists before kickoff.

RB Jeremy Langford (ankle, doubtful) -- inactive TE Charles Clay (knee, questionable) -- activeRuled out before SundayTE Eric Ebron (ankle), RB Theo Riddick (ankle), WR Markus Wheaton (shoulder), TE Jordan Cameron (concussion), TE Tyler Eifert (back), WR Corey Coleman (hand), QB Josh McCown (shoulder), WR Josh Doctson (Achilles), RB Latavius Murray (toe), QB Tony Romo (back), TE Jared Cook (ankle), RB James Starks (knee), RB Thomas Rawls (leg), WR Donte Moncrief (shoulder), TE Jordan Reed (concussion)Updates/analysis (most recent first)Dallas Cowboys (3:10 p.m.): Terrance Williams, who practiced all week, is active for todays game. Dez Bryant?is not. Lance Dunbar and Tony Romo also sit out this weeks game.Kam Chancellor (3:00 p.m.): The Seattle strong safety hurt his groin in practice last week and will miss todays game as a result. Kelcie McCray should get the start in his stead, and Atlanta could benefit in the short passing game as a result.Oakland Raiders (2:40 p.m.): The offensive line is a bit shorthanded today, as the team sits out a trio of tackles:?Menelik Watson, Matt McCants and Vadal Alexander. Running back Latavius Murray, as expected, also sits. TE Clive Walford will be active in the lone bit of positive injury news.Charcandrick West (2:35 p.m.): The running back (ankle) is active this week and will be one of the backups to?Jamaal Charles,?who is expected to get the bulk of the backfield work this afternoon. Knile Davis (concussion) is inactive.Will Fuller V (12:25 p.m.): There hasnt been anything official yet, and there probably wont be any news you can bank on until the rest of Sundays schedule has started. However, ESPNs Adam Schefter is reporting that the Houston wide receiver is unlikely to play ttonight because of his hamstring injury. David Clarkson Golden Knights Jersey. Robert Quinn (12:15 p.m.): Just a few hours ago, word was that Quinn would be able to play, but the Rams DE is not active for this Week 6 game against the Lions. Los Angeles might not be able to put as much pressure as hoped on Matthew Stafford.Reshad Jones (12:05 p.m.): ESPNs James Walker says the safetys situation is hard to gauge after he missed every practice this week, save for the light walk-through. Jones is Miamis best tackler, and their run defense is last in the league. He always has potential to post numbers if hes healthy enough to be productive, Walker says. IDP fantasy owners take note.Zach Brown (12:05 p.m.): The linebacker was questionable during the week but is indeed active and good to go. ESPNs Mike Rodak thinks Brown should get plenty of playing time unless his foot starts acting up, but his foot is not a major issue.Detroit Lions (noon): The teams inactives list has the names of both Theo Riddick and Dwayne Washington, which means RB duties will be shared by Justin Forsett and Zach Zenner.Rashad Jennings (11:55 a.m.): The Giants welcome back the running back after he had to sit out for three weeks because of a thumb injury. As long as he doesnt fumble the ball as a result of whatever wrap hes likely to be sporting, fantasy owners should be optimistic for a good day here.Chicago Bears (11:50 a.m.): Both Jay Cutler and Jeremy Langford remain out of the Bears lineup for this week, but Alshon Jeffery, Eddie Royal and Zach Miller are all active, which could mean a decent passing day from Brian Hoyer.Steve Smith Sr. (11:40 a.m.): The Ravens will sit the veteran because of his ankle injury. Mike Wallace and Kamar Aiken are the likeliest beneficiaries of this news.Cleveland Browns (11:30 a.m.): Tight end Gary Barnidge is active today, but the Browns will be without CB Joe Haden. Cody Kessler will start at quarterback, with Josh McCown closer to a return but still not ready.Sammie Coates (11:20 a.m.): ESPNs Jeremy Fowler reports that the wide receiver is going to play for the Steelers today, but of course, thats not a guarantee that he will see a full workload.Arian Foster (7:50 a.m.): The Miami RB should be on the field for warm-ups to see how his hamstring feels. The answer to that will likely fuel the Dolphins decision on Fosters status for todays game.Eddie Lacy (7:45 a.m.): The Packers running back is expected to play today, but as NFL Networks Ian Rapoport notes, he is likely to be the only active running back on the roster for the game. WR Randall Cobb would be used in the backfield should something befall Lacy.New England Patriots (7:40 a.m.): A bevy of questionables expect to suit up?for the team today, including LeGarrette Blount, Martellus Bennett and Julian Edelman. TE Rob Gronkowski, battling a bug, should be well enough to play for the Patriots.Sammie Coates (7:35 a.m.): According to ESPNs Adam Schefter, the Pittsburgh wide receiver, who is dealing with a fractured thumb, is going to be a game-time call.Dez Bryant (7:30 a.m.): Although the wide receiver returned to practice for the Cowboys this week, the odds of him actually being able to play today are slim, though he is expected to try to test his knee in pregame warm-ups.Official Sunday inactives should begin coming in at approximately 11:30 a.m. ET for the early games, 2:30 p.m. ET for the later set and 7 p.m. ET for the Sunday night game.
