Our four stories from the States today include potential injury worries for two different teams, while the Atlanta Hawks make a new signing and an Oakland A's star looks set to make his return.

The Giants need some experience, so Meriweather fits as a low-cost addition. Rookie safety Mykkele Thompson was placed on IR this weekend after suffering a torn Achilles tendon, while fellow safeties Landon Collins and Nat Berhe are day-to-day with injuries.

The 31-year old started all 10 games he played for Washington in 2014. He’s played in 99 games since the New England Patriots took him in the first round of the 2007 Draft, where he was twice named a Pro-Bowler.

Staying in the NFL, the Dallas Cowboys could also be in an injury crisis. The Cowboys first round draft pick Byron Jones has suffered a shoulder injury. This is worrying for Dallas, as it's the same shoulder that he had season-ending surgery on last year.

Over to the NBA now, where the Atlanta Hawks have signed a new guard. The Hawks have brought in veteran shooter Jason Richardson as the NBA's best 3-point team looks to improve even more.

And finally to baseball, where Sonny Gray looks set to make a return. The Oakland A's pitcher suffered a back injury last week but the 25-year old is fit enough to start against the Orioles tonight.
