    MINNEAPOLIS - The AL Central leading Minnesota Twins are continuing a cautious approach toward injuries for the series finale against the Washington Nationals tonight with outfielder Byron Buxton done for the season and Jake Cave still working his way back.

Rain has been falling throughout the day and is to continue into the evening in Minneapolis.

He was injured in Tuesday's game against the Miami Marlins when he fouled a ball off himself.



     CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) - Tampa Bay Buccaneers takes on the Carolina Panthers tonight in Charlotte on Thursday Night Football.

     UNDATED (AP) - New York Jets quarterback Sam Darnold has mononucleosis and will miss team's upcoming game against the Cleveland Browns Monday night. Coach Adam Gase says Trevor Siemian will start in Darnold's place. The team learned of Darnold's diagnosis Wednesday and coach Gase went to the second-year quarterback's home to deliver the news to him in person. The coach says Darnold's biggest concern is weight loss.

Morrissey had a career-high 31 points in 59 games with the Jets last season.

     - Odell Beckham Jr. says former Browns defensive coordinator Gregg Williams instructed players to hurt him in a preseason game in 2017. The Pro Bowl wide receiver sustained a severe ankle injury when Cleveland's Briean Boddy-Calhoun cut his legs out. Beckham said current Cleveland players told him Williams instructed them to take him out of the game. Beckham, who was with the Giants then, commented on Williams because the Browns play the Jets on Monday night and Williams coaches in New York.

     - Washington Redskins running back Derrius Guice (GYS) had right knee surgery that coach Jay Gruden called a "minor procedure." Renowned surgeon Dr. James Andrews performed the operation that has been reported to fix a torn meniscus.

     - First-time eligible candidates Troy Polamalu (pohl-uh-MAH'-loo) and Patrick Willis are among 122 modern-era nominees for the Pro Football Hall of Fame's class of 2020.

The other two in their initial year of eligibility are receiver Reggie Wayne and running back Maurice Jones-Drew.

     - Browns coach Freddie Kitchens said his team is "hurting" for defensive end Chris Smith after his girlfriend was killed in an accident. Petara Cordero, who recently had a daughter with Smith, was struck by a car as she stood on the roadside. Smith's car blew a tire and the 26-year-old Cordero exited the vehicle but was hit by a car driven by a woman who admitted to police she had
been drinking.

     - The NFL has launched the Helmet Challenge aiming to stimulate the development of a new helmet for players that outperforms all helmet models currently worn in the league. Up to $3 million will be available in the challenge, including $2 million in grant funding to support of the development of a helmet prototype, and a $1 million award.



     BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) - Buffalo Sabres defenseman Rasmus Ristolainen says he's happy to report for the start of training camp despite offseason suggestions he'd prefer a change of scenery. The sixth-year player's future with the Sabres has been uncertain since expressing frustrations on several occasions since the end of last season, when Buffalo extended its playoff drought to eight years.



     BRUSSELS (AP) - Four-time Grand Slam champion Kim Clijsters (KLY'-sturz) is planning another comeback. In an interview with WTA, the Belgian mother of three says she wants a new challenge. Clijsters retired after the 2012 U.S. Open. The 36-year-old started her professional career in 1997 and then took her first break from tennis in 2007. After a 26-month hiatus she won the 2009 U.S. Open, becoming the first mother to win a Grand Slam title since Evonne Goolagong at Wimbledon in 1980.
