Bengals acquire Cordy Glenn in pick swap with Bills
Dalton was sacked a total of 39 times previous year , which was tied for the sixth-highest total of any quarterback in the NFL . Glenn had signed his five-year, $60 million prior to the 2016 season, but the cap space was too much for the Bills to carry.

But Smart returned February 23 and had played quite well since then. While he returned to that game and even finished with 20 points, seven rebounds, and eight assists, damage was found when the injury was later examined.

"He's a guy that clearly wants to play", head coach Brad Stevens told reporters in Orlando.

Chris Paul actually beat the expected timeline for a similar injury to his non-shooting hand last season, returning in a little less than six weeks.

This is now his second major injury of the campaign after he missed 11 games when he punched a glass picture frame in Los Angeles in January and injured his hand. His 48 percent True Shooting Percentage is, well, hideous, but Smart is a odd player who everyone around Boston's organization will insist still creates a positive impact while on the court. While we may not see him again this year, the Celtics remain hopeful.
