Rookie center Bryan Stork (knee) practiced for the first time since suffering the injury in the divisional round against the Ravens. He didn’t practice all last week prior to the AFC championship.

Indy’s D’Qwell Jackson said Thursday he didn’t notice a difference in the air pressure of the football he intercepted in last week’s AFC title game between the Colts and Patriots.
It was believed the discovery of the Colts linebacker kickstarted the Deflategate investigation — reports initially indicated that he was the one who noticed the change in the air pressure of the footballs following a second-quarter interception of New England’s Tom Brady. That led to an ESPN report that 11 of the Patriots footballs from that game were under-inflated.
However, Jackson said Thursday that simply wasn’t the case, telling NFL Media it wasn’t his claim that prompted the investigation.

Seattle cornerback Jeremy Lane was asked about Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski, and the cornerback’s opinion is quite different than anyone else’s.
“I actually don’t think he’s that good,” Lane said via ESPN.com. “He’s OK. He does have a big body. But from what I’ve seen on tape, he doesn’t like you putting your hands on him. So if we put our hands on him and shake him up a little bit, he won’t catch that many balls.”
Gronkowski was the 2014 NFL Comeback Player of the Year, chosen in voting conducted by the...
FOXBORO — Tom Brady said Thursday afternoon that he did not “alter the ball in any way” when it came to the footballs used in last week’s AFC title game.
Addressing a room full of reporters for roughly 30 minutes, the Patriots quarterback said he was “very comfortable” that no one did anything wrong, and added that he was not a cheater.
“I don’t believe so,” he said. “I would never do anything to break the rules. … I would never do anything outside of the rules of play.
“I didn’t alter the ball in any way,” added Brady, who said he didn’t know anything was amiss until he heard the initial report on Monday morning.
The Patriots are under fire for a report that indicated that there was an issue...
With the excess of outfielders, along the journey back from back surgery, has pushed the outfielder to make his progress and motivation. It’s a tone the Red Sox evidently don’t mind at all.
“I think a motivated Shane Victorino out to prove something is a very good thing, for him and the Red Sox,” said Red Sox general manager Ben Cherington at the Boston Baseball Writers Dinner Thursday. “So, I’m just excited to see him. I think we’ll see him later this week. We know what kind of player he is if he’s healthy and on the field. He’s certainly done all he needs to do this offseason. When it comes to getting baseball reps, that’s...
