Sport NFL Offseason Moves
NFL teams are using a loophole in league policy to announce offseason moves
With Major League Baseball shut down for the foreseeable future, Houston Astros starter Justin Verlander underwent a groin operation that will keep him out of action for six weeks.
However, this doesn't appear related to the.
“Initially, the hope was that physical therapy would be the proper course of action,” Astros GM James Click said in a statement. “However, after a recent setback in his rehab, the medical staff recommended that a surgical procedure was necessary. The early prognosis is that Justin will be out for about six weeks.”
Colts plan to keep Jacoby Brissett?
With the Colts still in need of a long-term answer, it is unclear how they will proceed with Brissett. But for now, it looks like he will be a high-priced backup and play a fourth year in Indianapolis. Related slideshow: NFL offseason moves (provided by imagn)
Baseball is delayed at least into May, following CDC guidelines for the next eight weeks, so the 37-year-old Verlander would seemingly be good to go – as long as his other injury has cleared up.
Verlander won the Cy Young Award in 2019 going 21-6 with a 2.58 ERA and 300 strikeouts but wasn't quite himself in the postseason, as the Astros lost the World Series to the Washington Nationals.
This is something to keep an eye on in the coming weeks though: With the season paused, will some players undergo minor surgeries that they otherwise might have played through?
