A familiar sentiment has arisen regarding the Patriots offense. Tom Brady is locking in on 2 guys (Edelman and Gronk) and no one else seems to be getting a look. A 37 year old, future Hall of Fame QB, has little to no weapons in 2014.

Here are the highlights from Tuesday’s Three for All on Middays with MFB with Lou Merloni, Christian Fauria and Tim Benz. To hear the segment, go to the MFB audio on demand page.

Lions tight end Joseph Fauria — nephew of the MFB host — said he sprained his ankle rushing down the stairs to grab his 3-month-old puppy in an attempt to take it outside before it urinated on the floor. Fauria missed Sunday’s game against the Jets and is expected to be out another three weeks.

One day earlier, discussing Rajon Rondo‘s broken hand that he claims he suffered while slipping in the shower, Christian Fauria had questioned players’ offbeat stories about injuries. However, he stands by his nephew’s claim and said the second-year pro was not drunk at the time.

“I did some investigative research, called his mother, called his grandparents,” Fauria said. “When I first heard this I was like, this is BS. No. You’re a professional athlete, you don’t trip, you don’t fall, you don’t miss a final step, OK? But I’ve been told repeatedly that that is exactly what happened, 100 percent. And I told the story yesterday about my issues trying to hide some things. But I have received confirmation that it is 100 percent accurate.”

Said Merloni: “I don’t know if I believe the dog thing. I’m not going to lie to you. I don’t know, but I think it might have something to do with a female, maybe.”

– The NFL announced Tuesday that Chiefs safety Husain Abdullah should not have been penalized for unsportsmanlike conduct after his interception return for a touchdown against the Patriots in Monday night’s rout. Players are not allowed to slide in celebration, but Abdullah went to his knees in prayer, which is allowed.

Merloni joked that the ref threw the flag due to a “hatred for Muslims.”

Said Benz: “What I don’t understand about that is why would you put the rule in the books if it wasn’t to create the separation of God and football” Why else would you put the rule in the book that you don’t go to your knees?”

– Colts safety LaRon Landry was suspended four games for violating the league’s policy on performance-enhancing drugs.

Fauria said a photo that has been circulating on the web makes Landry’s arms appear much bigger than they are.

“This is an exaggerated, manipulated picture,” Fauria said, adding: “His bicep is not that big.”

Said Benz: “The real LaRon Landry looks like the fake Hans and Franz from the Aaron Rodgers commercial. That’s how big he is. He’s almost inflated. I don’t know if that picture is doctored, I thought the same thing.”

Here are the highlights from Tuesday’s Headlines on Dennis & Callahan with Kirk Minihane, John Dennis and Gerry Callahan. To hear the segment, go to the Dennis & Callahan audio on demand page.

Magic Johnson‘s son, EJ Johnson, reportedly had gastric sleeve surgery in an attempt to shed weight from his 6-foot-3 frame. The 22-year-old New York University student had revealed on a recent episode of “#RichKids of Beverly Hills” that he was considering the procedure that shrinks the stomach.

The openly gay Johnson said, “I’m ready to look really cute. The surgery is a huge deal for me. It will certainly be a positive change.”

None of the hosts had heard of the reality show in which Johnson appears.

“I think he’s sort of the breakout star,” Minihane surmised.

Johnson is known for his affinity for expensive purses.

“Which of the Teletubbies has the purse?” Callahan asked. “Remember, Pat Robertson was calling him out? He reminds me of that Teletubby.”

– The Boston Herald’s Andrew Blom reviewed actress Lena Dunham’s new book, “Not That Kind of Girl,” and gave it an A-plus.

“I have never seen any review get an A-plus in my life,” Minihane said.

Said Callahan: “What kind of guy would read Lena Dunham’s [auto]biography? Is this the story of her life? EJ Johnson gave it two thumbs-up, too.”
