ESPN’s Adam Schefter joined Dennis & Callahan to discuss the ongoing Jonathan Martin bullying saga with the Dolphins, and the health issues of a pair of NFL coaches.

Miami announced on Sunday the indefinite suspension of offensive lineman Richie Incognito for his role in the alleged bullying of Martin, the Dolphins’ second-year lineman.

Patriots quarterback Tom Brady made his weekly appearance with Dennis & Callahan on Monday morning, following Sunday’s offensive explosion in a 55-31 victory over the Steelers.

The Patriots closed the game on a 35-7 run after squandering a 14-point halftime lead. The 55 points marks the most scored in the NFL this season and the most every scored against Pittsburgh, and New England’s 610 yards of total offense is the most ever allowed by the Steelers as well.

FOXBORO -- The days become shorter, the temperature starts to drop, and the game starts to change. Football in November and December changes dramatically -- the intensity starts to ramp up, and the sense of urgency begins to increase.



FOXBORO — That’s how you head into the bye week.

The Patriots put up 55 points — more than any team has ever scored on a Steelers defense — on the way to a 55-31 victory over Pittsburgh Sunday afternoon at Gillette Stadium. While it wasn’t the most aesthetically pleasing game to defensive aficionados, it was plenty good enough for New England football fans, as the Patriots now head into their week off with a 7-2 mark.

FOXBORO — The Patriots have announced the following players as being out for Sunday’s game against the Steelers. Here’s the list of who will be sitting and what it means going forward:

Wide receiver Kenbrell Thompkins: The biggest surprise of the group — it appears that the rookie has slipped down the depth chart over the last few weeks. Austin Collie has seen a dramatic uptick in snaps over the last two weeks — there’s likely a connection there.

The Patriots announced Saturday that they signed offensive lineman Josh Kline to the 53-man roster from the practice squad and placed defensive lineman Tommy Kelly on injured reserve with a knee injury.

Defensive tackle Tommy Kelly practiced on Wednesday and Thursday this week, but he was sidelined Friday morning, and on Friday afternoon, the team listed him as out for Sunday’s game against the Steelers. Kelly suffered a knee injury in last month’s loss to the Bengals, and hasn’t seen game action since.

Meanwhile, cornerbacks Kyle Arrington (groin) and Aqib Talib (hip), as well as running back Leon Washington (ankle) are all among the questionable for Sunday’s game.

Defensive tackle Tommy Kelly was the only player not present at the start of Patriots practice Friday, according to reports. The veteran, who has struggled with a knee injury he suffered in an Oct. 6 loss to the Bengals in Cincinnati, was at practice on Wednesday and Thursday in a limited capacity — and gave the Patriots a perfect attendance report on those two days as a result — but wasn’t around on Friday.

FOXBORO -- Rob Ninkovich is many things to many people: Jets-killer.



FOXBORO — There were no changes to the Patriots injury report on Thursday, as the same 11 players who were listed as limited on Wednesday — including cornerback Aqib Talib (hip), wide receiver Danny Amendola (groin) and Rob Gronkowski (back/forearm/hamstring) — were on the Thursday report. In addition, quarterback Tom Brady (right shoulder) was again a full participant in practice.

Here’s a look at the complete report from Thursday:
