The Celtics also lost backup center Daniel Theis to season-ending surgery to fix a torn meniscus.

Malcolm Butler to sign with Tennessee Titans
Instead, he signed for a below-market one-year, $3.9 million tender that would allow him full-fledged free agency this spring. In three years since taking over as a starter with the Patriots, Butler collected eight interceptions and did not miss a game.
Bills trade Glenn, move up in draft
The Bills signed Glenn to a five-year, $65 million extension after assigning him the franchise tag during the 2016 offseason. The writing on the wall surrounding Glenn's future in Buffalo centered around Dion Dawkins ably filling in for him.

The bill will be brought before Israeli lawmakers amid threats by opposition parties to dissolve the Knesset if it passes. The final word on whether to indict him rests with the attorney-general, a decision that could be months away.
Smart said after the game it was a sprain and the Celtics maintained that diagnosis as of practice Monday while Smart is in the process of his thumb being further examined.
Smart suffered the injury when diving for a loose ball at the 9:24 mark of the third quarter in the Celtics' 99-97 loss to the Indiana Pacers Sunday.

Smart missed time earlier in the season after lacerating that same hand when he hit a picture frame on the wall at the team hotel during an angry outburst.
