The Seattle Seahawks added needed depth on their defensive line by signing veteran defensive tackle Tom Johnson and bringing back defensive end Marcus Smith.
The Seahawks are thin up front with the trade of Michael Bennett to Philadelphia and the loss of Sheldon Richardson in free agency. Johnson provides the Seahawks a solid veteran at defensive tackle who played on one of the premier defenses in the NFL last season.
Johnson started 15 games for Minnesota in 2017 when the Vikings led the NFL in total defense and scoring defense. Johnson joined the Vikings in 2014 after three seasons with New Orleans. He had 32 tackles and two sacks last year for the Vikings while playing the third-most snaps of any of Minnesota’s defensive linemen.
Smith was signed by Seattle last summer after the former first-round pick was a bust with Philadelphia. Smith appeared in 14 games and had 15 tackles and 2 陆 sacks.
Yankees second baseman Gleyber Torres was placed on the 10-day disabled list on Wednesday because of a strained right hip.
Torres was removed after striking out in his second at-bat in the fourth inning before the Yankees went on to beat the Atlanta Braves 6-2.
Before the series finale against the National League East leaders Sam Mills Jersey , Yankees manager Aaron Boone was upbeat about the status of his prized rookie.
Torres did not start in Tuesday night’s win, but entered the game late as a defensive replacement.
”We’re hoping it’s a short stint. But we think we’ve got to deal with it this time because there is a small strain there,” Boone said outside the home clubhouse after the game.
”Hopefully it won’t be something that it’s too long. Probably take us up to the All-Star break.”
Boone said the club would assess the situation with a day off Thursday before heading to Toronto for the start of an 11-game, three-city road trip leading into the All-Star Game in Washington.
Torres is hitting .294 with 15 home runs and 42 RBIs in his first 63 major league games.
He had an MRI and was not available to talk to reporters after the game.
Neil Walker http://www.chiefsauthorizedshops.com/authentic-dorian-o_daniel-jersey , who went over from third base to second at the start of the fifth inning, could get most of the work in Torres’ absence.
Another option could be Ronald Torreyes, but he’s been on the temporary inactive list at Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre for more than a week to deal with a personal issue. Brandon Drury, who started 114 games at second for Arizona last season Broncos Elite Jerseys , could also figure into the mix.
Boone wasn’t sure how the injury initially occurred, pointing out that Torres had made some ”good base running plays a couple of nights ago when he moved up on some wild pitches.”
The Yankees manager also added that if the injury had occurred late in the season, it would’ve been ”possible” for the phenom to be back on the field shortly.
But the team with the second-best record in baseball took the safe route.
”Anytime you’re talking about groin, hamstring Youth Adrian Clayborn Jersey , quads, once you have a strain in there, you push through it you can make it a worse strain,” Boone said.
”And now you’re talking weeks and months. Stuff like that. So I think the wise thing is to do this now. Gleyber wants to take a couple of days Authentic Customized Cardinals Jerseys , work through it. But I think he also understands this is the best thing for him and for us.”
