The Rangers also risk losing 3rd baseman, Adrian Beltre, after straining his hamstring in yesterdays game. He’s scheduled for an MRI today. Beltre also missed the first 50 games of the season due to injury.
And the Dallas Cowboys are off this weekend before beginning the season next week against the New York Giants. It’s still unknown if running back Zeke Elliott will be on the field or not following the conclusion of his appeal hearing of a six game suspension for domestic violence. However, reports came out yesterday that lead NFL investigator, Kia Roberts, the only league investigator to conduct an interview with the accuser, Tiffany Thompson, recommended Elliott not be suspended. Roberts, however, was barred from the final decision by Senior VP of Investigations, Lisa Friel. The Cowboys are hoping a decision will be made by Monday.
