Myles Garrett Works Off To The Side Thursday
Cleveland Browns defensive end Myles Garrett (shoulder) missed practice for the second day in a row on Thursday, but he worked out on the sideline and still expects to play in Week 13's game against the Los Angeles Rams, per the Elyria Chronicle-Telegram's Scott Petrak. Garrett "felt something pop" in his left shoulder amid Week 12's rough 29-12 loss to the Denver Broncos, which left his arm in a sling during the postgame press conference. Garrett's caliber may allow him to not require much practice to suit up and play some allotment of snaps, but IDP fantasy managers will want to see the 27-year-old two-time All-Pro pass-rusher at Friday's session in some capacity to instill some confidence that he'll indeed be active on Sunday. Garrett ranks third in sacks (13), quarterback pressures (51), and tackles for loss (12) among edge rushers this year. QB Matthew Stafford's outlook would greatly enhance if Garrett is unable to go.
Mitchell Marner Scores Hat Trick In Victory
Toronto Maple Leafs right wing Mitchell Marner finished with his second career NHL hat trick in Thursday's 4-3 shootout victory against the Kraken. Marner went eight consecutive games without scoring a goal prior to the breakout game on the offensive end, with the three-goal game bringing him to eight goals on the season. Marner is tied for second on the team in scoring as the 26-year-old has totaled 23 points through 21 games, with Maple Leafs center Auston Matthews posting the same point total at the quarter mark of the season.

Alex Lyon Earns Third Consecutive Victory
Detroit Red Wings goaltender Alex Lyon stopped 34-of-35 shots on goal in Thursday's 5-1 victory against the Blackhawks. Lyon picked up his third consecutive victory since returning from Sweden for the NHL Global Series, while limiting the opposing team to one goal for the second straight game. Lyon's strong start brings his season totals to a record of 3-1-0 to go along with a 1.26 goals against average and .958 save percentage, and the 30-year-old is worth adding across all formats.
