Description: Rockies first baseman Justin Morneau (neck) has been activated from the disabled list.
Insight: Due to the All-Star break, Morneau only had to miss 10 games due to a neck strain, as he was placed on the DL retroactive to July 13. He\'s batted .312 with 13 homers, 60 RBI and an .846 OPS this season.
Description: Rockies shortstop Josh Rutledge is out of the lineup again Tuesday due to an illness.
Insight: He was scratched from Monday\'s lineup and isn\'t ready to return. Rutledge has done a good job filling in for Troy Tulowitzki since Tulo suffered a hip flexor strain on July 19. He\'s gone 13-for-34 (.382) with four doubles, a triple, a homer and nine RBI since he replaced Tulowitzki in that game.
Description: Texans running back Arian Foster has a hamstring injury, according to a Houston Chronicle report.
Insight: This doesn\'t appear to be a serious injury, but with Foster you always have to worry. He\'s got top-five ability, if healthy for a full season, but missed eight games last season and three in 2011.
Description: Spurs guard Manu Ginobili (stress fracture in his right leg) has apparently not been granted permission by the Spurs to play in the FIBA World Cup of Basketball.
Insight: Ginobili wanted to play for his country in the World Cup, but only if healthy. After a long and successful playoff run, it\'s not surprising that the team wanted the 37-year-old to rest as much as possible in the offseason.
