Jets QB Ryan Fitzpatrick, speaking to ESPN by phone from a doctor's office as he waited to take his physical, said he expects to practice today. On the five-month contract dispute: "It definitely was a long process. After coming to the realization that it wasn't going to get done right away and that it was going to take some time, I tried my best to put it out of my mind and tried to live life normally. But it was hard with people coming up to me and asking about the contract, people texting me. It was hovering ... looming over my head for five months. In the end, I'm happy the way it turned out." He said he walked into last night's first team meeting "one second" before it started. He told Todd Bowles, "Sorry I'm late." He said some players seemed shocked to see him.

Luis Severino looked very good in his two scoreless innings of relief during the Yankees' 4-1 loss to the Astros. Severino, who began the year as a starter, could be part of the solution in replacing Aroldis Chapman. Severino could become a setup man. Long-term, though, Severino is supposed to be a future starter, which presents the same issues the Yankees have had in the recent past with guys like Joba Chamberlain and Phil Hughes.
