Villanova guard Dylan Ennis, who had been eager to return to basketball competition after sitting out the 2012-13 season as a transfer, has seen that comeback delayed further because of a fracture of the third metacarpal bone in his right hand suffered during Thursday's practice. Ennis' injury, which affects his shooting hand, will be reevaluated in four weeks, Villanova coach Jay Wright said Friday in a statement. "We're disappointed for Dylan because we know how excited he was about being out there with his teammates," Wright said.

It turns out that Scott Rolen may have been playing with a microscopic fracture in his left hand since Mets outfielder Carl Everett slid into the Phillies' rookie of the year candidate at third base on May 31 at Shea Stadium. Rolen had an MRI done on June 20 after he continued to experience discomfort in the hand. It was announced at the time he had a deep bruise. Either way, Rolen insisted, it's not a big deal. "It's very small," Rolen said. "It's no different than if it was a bruise.

Kimmo Timonen, the Flyers' ever-dependable defenseman, played in Saturday's 3-2 overtime win against Ottawa despite a left hand injury that limited his minutes in Thursday's triumph over Chicago.

After Jeremy Maclin left the Eagles in free agency, Jordan Matthews said the team would not have a No. 1 receiver this season, utilizing a balanced receiving corps. Fifteen games into the season, Matthews' prediction did not come true. He became the No. 1 receiver. Matthews, a second-round pick in 2014, needs 57 receiving yards Sunday against the New York Giants to reach the 1,000-yard plateau. He would become the 13th player in franchise history to achieve that total. His 78 catches rank eighth on the Eagles' single-season list, and he needs seven catches Sunday to match Maclin's reception total from last season.

VINNY CURRY is a now a 3-4 end. Trent Cole is a linebacker. Curry is trying to gain weight, Cole is trying to shed it. Both need to prove they can fit into a defense they were not drafted to play, for which their body types might not be ideally suited. Cole is 30, coming off the least productive of his eight NFL seasons, with 32 solo tackles and three sacks. Asked Wednesday about postseason hand surgery, Cole acknowledged he "snapped in half" a bone in the hand, playing with a hand injury originally suffered during the 2011 season.

"He is part of the plan right now," Curtin said when asked if Blake would start the MLS game. "We are still discussing it, but that is in our minds to have him as the starter this week.

EMMAUS, Pa. - Someone was missing. During a timeout in the second half Tuesday night, Villa Maria huddled on the field around coach Daan Polders as his team strategized on how to break its scoreless game against Moravian Academy. For the first part of that huddle, however, Lindsay Dickinson was on the sidelines tending to her injured right hand. An opposing player had struck her with a stick, and the inside of her palm was bloody and swollen, but she wouldn't stay on the sideline long.
