Belichick: Develin did not return with team

The Patriots came back to Foxboro early Saturday morning after their 17-16 preseason win over the Panthers but fullback James Develin did not accompany them.

Bill Belichick announced on his conference call Saturday that Develin stayed back in Charlotte to have his injured right leg treated. That treatment, according to multiple reports, was surgery after a clean break.

“He didn’t come back with us on the trip. He’s down there in North Carolina, in Charlotte. Don’t really have anything at this point,” Belichick said.

Mike Reiss of ESPN reported that Develin sustained a broken right tibia on a hit with just over eight minutes left in the fourth quarter Friday night. The injury, according to Reiss, was not immediately considered season-ending but rather a clean break that...

Report: Develin suffers broken leg in win

The injury to James Develin didn’t look good as he was carted off the field in the fourth quarter Friday night in Charlotte. As it turns out, the news is not good either.

According to the Boston Globe’s Jim McBride, citing a team source, Develin broke his right leg after catching a pass from Jimmy Garoppolo midway through the fourth quarter.

Develin, who gained 10 yards on the play, rolled to his left and caught a pass. But as he was turning, his right foot appeared to stick in the turf. When it released after a tackle from linebacker David Mayo, it crashed into the leg of safety Dean Marlowe. Develin’s lower right leg bent backward and he had to be carted off with 8:01 left in the game.

After a few moments on the field with medical staff, coach...

Belichick on Brady: 'Didn't do much offensively'

The first six series of the night looked like the previous five of the season for Tom Brady. Not good.

He was sacked once, threw a pair of interceptions (including one that was more of a fumble than a pick), nearly stumbled into the ground trying to make a tackle after one of the interceptions and didn’t seem to be on the same page with any of his receivers.

There was the overthrow of an open Scott Chandler in the first quarter. The drop by Reggie Wayne in the second quarter.

All in all, Brady was 2-for-7 for 13 yards and two interceptions in his first six drives of the night.

“Obviously, we couldn’t do anything in the first half, couldn’t run, couldn’t throw,” coach...

Swihart's inside-the-park HR propels Sox to win

There haven’t been a ton of memorable moments for the Red Sox this season, but Friday night certainly supplied one.

The disappointment that came with blowing a one-run lead in the eighth inning would be erased for the Sox thanks in large part to a most unusual play — Blake Swihart’s 10th-inning inside-the-park home run.

The blast would go a long way in helping the Red Sox claim a 6-4 win over the first-place Mets, at Citi Field in New York.

Swihart managed the feat — the first Red Sox’ inside-the-park homer since Jacoby Ellsbury‘s race around the bases in 2011 — by launching a drive off the...

Brady, Garoppolo fire TDs, Develin hurt in win

Tom Brady and Jimmy Garoppolo each threw a touchdown pass and Stephen Gostkowski hit another long field goal as the Patriots won their second preseason game with a 17-16 win over the Panthers at Bank of America Stadium in Charlotte.

Newly-signed Reggie Wayne played most of the first quarter. He was targeted once by Brady, dropping a short pass over the middle, and did not catch a pass.

Brady played all seven series in the first half, leading the Patriots to just 45 total yards on the first six. Brady was flushed out of the pocket twice, leading to a pair of runs for 18 yards. He was sacked once.

But on the seventh, and in...
