Figueiras, Seba to miss Barca match
Olympiakos manager Takis Lemonis will be without at least two of his regular starters for the Champions League match with Barcelona on Wednesday. Both right-back Diogo Figueiras and winger Seba have failed to make the squad alongside Emmanuel Emenike and El Fardou Ben Nabouhane. However, centre-back Jagos Vukovic returns to the squad despite having been out of action since suffering an injury while on international duty in September.
Feyenoord without Tapia and Diks
Feyenoord have suffered another defensive setback ahead of the Champions League match against Shakhtar Donetsk. After losing Renato Tapia to a hamstring injury in Saturday's match against Zwolle, Kevin Diks has now been ruled out with a slight concussion. Coach Giovanni van Bronckhorst has added Lutsharel Geertruida to his squad, the 17-year-old central defender from the Feyenoord U-19.
Moses out for at least a month
Chelsea have been dealt a major blow after Victor Moses picked up a hamstring injury during Saturday's 2-1 defeat to Crystal Palace that will reportedly see him sidelined for at least a month. Moses became the third Chelsea player in two weeks to suffer a hamstring injury, following striker Alvaro Morata and midfielder N'Golo Kante. Morata is hoping to return for Wednesday night's Champions League clash against Roma, but Kante is set to miss the rest of October.
Pogba steps up recovery
Paul Pogba could be back in action much sooner than Manchester United fans could have hoped for after he posted images on social media stepping up his recovery from a hamstring injury. The midfielder has been out of action since limping out of the 3-0 Champions League win over Basel on September 12, an injury United boss Jose Mourinho later suggested was "ong term". The news Pogba could be nearing a return will please Mourinho, who is currently facing a midfield crisis with Marouane Fellaini and Michael Carrick also unavailable through injury.
Kilmarnock appoint Clarke as manager
Kilmarnock have appointed Steve Clarke as their new manager on a two-and-a-half year deal. The 54-year-old former Scotland full-back has been out of a job for a year after leaving as the assistant manager at Aston Villa but now he will replace Lee McCulloch who left the club after registering three draws and five defeats. Clarke was assistant at Newcastle, West Ham, Chelsea, Liverpool and Aston Villa and has managed West Bromwich Albion and Reading.
Roma face injury crisis
Roma's build-up to their Champions League clash with Chelsea on Wednesday has been far from ideal as they are currently facing an injury crisis. Chelsea could come up against a second-string Roma side after Kostas Manolas was taken off with a thigh strain in the club's loss against Napoli on Saturday. The Greek defender is set to join team-mates Stephan El Shaaraway, Patrik Shick, Kevin Strootman, Gregoire Defrel and Emerson Palmieri on the sidelines. Meanwhile, the Serie A outfit are monitoring the fitness of Lorenzo Pellegrini, who was also forced off in the costly defeat by Napoli.
Navas back in training
Real Madrid starting goalkeeper Keylor Navas trained with the squad this Sunday as he has already recovered from the small injury he picked up with Costa Rica. The goalkeeper should be available when Real Madrid host Tottenham next Tuesday.
Martinez suffers shoulder injury
Bayern have confirmed that midfielder Javi Martinez has suffered an injury to his right shoulder joint, but the Bundesliga champions stopped short of putting a timescale on his return. Restored to holding midfield in the first game under Jupp Heynckes, Martinez was one of star performers in the 5-0 win over Freiburg before landing heavily on his right shoulder in the second half.
The Spaniard received treatment on the pitch before attempting to continue, but was substituted in the 70th minute. Bayern have announced that the 29-year-old will be treated by the club's medical staff, but it will not require surgery and he will undergo a rehabilitation plan as well as individual training.
Conte confirms Moses injury
Chelsea manager Antonio Conte has confirmed wing-back Victor Moses will miss the Blues' Champions League game against Roma on Wednesday. Moses had to be taken off in the first half of Chelsea's 2-1 defeat to Crystal Palace on Saturday with a suspected hamstring injury. "For sure Moses is out because he's injured. I don't know if his injury is serious or not. I hope not," Conte said. "Kante and Drinkwater are still out, and I hope to have Morata back for this game."
Ribery eyeing early return
Bayern Munich winger Franck Ribery has suggested he may return from injury before the Bundesliga winter break. The Frenchman tore the lateral collateral ligament in his left knee on October 1 and was expected to be out of action until 2018. The 34-year-old, however, says he is in good shape and could well return before Bayern's final game prior to the mid-season break, against Stuttgart on December 16.
Moses forced off with hamstring injury
Antonio Conte's injury troubles deepened on Saturday as Victor Moses was forced from the field with a hamstring injury. The Chelsea boss was already without Alvaro Morata, Danny Drinkwater and N'Golo Kante for the trip to Selhurst Park and Moses joined the injury list before the interval. The former Palace star was given a warm ovation as he left the field for summer signing Davide Zappacosta.
Iniesta set to face Atletico
Captain Andres Iniesta has been deemed fit enough for Barcelona's trip to meet Atletico Madrid. Iniesta sustained a hamstring injury in Barca's 3-0 win over Las Palmas prior to the international break, which ruled him out of Spain's World Cup qualifiers against Albania and Israel. However, the 33-year-old midfielder is set to face Atletico in Madrid on Saturday.
Eriksson leaves with injury
Left winger Loui Eriksson left the Vancouver Canucks' game against the Calgary Flames early in the first period Saturday. Eriksson appeared to hurt his knee after crashing into the back of the Flames' net at 2:57 of the first period. He limped off the ice and headed to the bench. After sitting on the bench for several minutes, Eriksson skated briefly then headed to the dressing room.
Oilers without Draisaitl
The Edmonton Oilers will be without one of their big guns when they host the Ottawa Senators on Saturday night. After Friday's practice, coach Todd McLellan confirmed that center Leon Draisaitl, who finished eighth in the NHL scoring race last season with 77 points, will not play Saturday. "He didn't practice and won't play tomorrow," said McLellan. "That's all we know for now."
injuriesNBA : Cleveland Cavaliers : 16.10.17
James uncertain for season opener
LeBron James tested his injured left ankle during a portion of practice Sunday, but it's still not known if he'll play in Cleveland's season opener against Boston. James sat out the Cavaliers' first three exhibition games before making his debut last week against Chicago. He played 30 minutes but may have aggravated his ankle while making a spin move in the loss. James has been slowed since spraining his ankle in practice on September 27.
McCollum suspended for season opener
Portland Trail Blazers guard CJ McCollum has been suspended for the regular-season opener after leaving the bench during an altercation in Wednesday's preseason game, the league announced Saturday. McCollum, 26, was given a one-game ban for the incident that occurred with 9:33 remaining in the fourth quarter of Portland's 113-104 preseason win against the Phoenix Suns.

Winston injures throwing shoulder
Jameis Winston suffered an injury to his throwing shoulder Sunday during the Week 6 game against the Arizona Cardinals. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback was knocked out of the game during the second quarter as he was tackled by Chandler Jones and landed hard on his throwing shoulder. X-rays on Winston's shoulder were negative, but it's unclear whether he will be able to play next week.
Rodgers cracks collarbone
The Packers may be without their MVP quarterback for the remainder of the season after Aaron Rodgers suffered a broken collarbone during Sunday's game against the Vikings. Landing awkwardly after taking a hit from Anthony Barr, Rodgers walked off the field under his own power, but he was replaced by Brett Hundley. The team announced Rodgers has a broken collarbone and could miss the rest of the season.

The Dodgers also dropped reliever Pedro Baez from the NLDS roster, adding infielder Charlie Culberson and outfielder Joc Pederson.
Seager misses workout
Los Angeles Dodgers shortstop Corey Seager did not participate in the team's workout at Dodger Stadium on Thursday after tweaking his back on a slide Monday night during Game 3 of the National League Division Series against the Arizona Diamondbacks. Seager is day-to-day and receiving treatment, but Dodgers manager Dave Roberts told reporters Thursday that he expects Seager to be available for Game 1 of the NL Championship Series on Saturday.
