Harrison on MFB: 'Geno Smith, he stinks'

NBC Sports NFL analyst Rodney Harrison made his weekly appearance on Middays with MFB on Tuesday to discuss the Patriots’ injury issues and the upcoming game against the Jets. To hear the interview, go to the MFB audio on demand page.

Harrison said he expects Thursday’s game will be a tough one despite the Jets coming in with a 1-5 record and struggling badly on offense.

“I think it will be competitive,” Harrison said. “The Jets, they have such a hatred for the Patriots. Rex Ryan, he’s had success against Tom Brady, he knows what to expect. And I think he will have this team ready. And this team, they’...

Rex: 'We certainly don't feel sorry for them'

FOXBORO — There are plenty of people around the football world who feel bad that the Patriots lost their starting middle linebacker and running back in one game on Sunday in Buffalo. Rex Ryan is not one of them.

The Jets head coach, speaking on a conference call Tuesday morning, said injuries are part of the game and reminded reporters that he’s lost plenty of players already this season to injury, most recently starting corner Dee Milliner on Monday.

Ryan is expecting Belichick to make the necessary adjustments for Thursday night’s game.

Bruins sign Gagne to 1-year contract
By: DJ Bean

The Bruins signed veteran forward Simon Gagne to a one-year, $600,000 contract Tuesday. In corresponding moves, the team sent Jordan Caron to Providence and put Bobby Robins on waivers with the intentions of sending him to Providence.

Gagne, 34, did not play last season and was brought into camp on a tryout by the Bruins. In 38 games in the lockout-shortened 2013 season, he had five goals and six assists for 11 points.

The Bruins have a few options with where they can play Gagne. The team’s fourth-line is far from solidified, as Tuesday’s moves make it three players who have played on the fourth line this season and have been sent down (Caron, Robins and Craig Cunningham). The left-shooting Gagne could serve as either a left or right wing on the line.

In Tuesday’s practice, Gagne was on the fourth line with Daniel Paille and Ryan Spooner.

Napoli undergoing surgery for sleep disorder

According to Mike Napoli, the first baseman will be undergoing Bimaxillary Advancement surgery in order to help alleviate his long-standing battle with sleep apnea. (To read more on the operation, click here.)

The procedure is slated to be performed Nov. 4.

“I’ve been dealing with sleep apnea for a long time, my whole career,” Napoli wrote in a text to WEEI.com. “I’ve tried numerous things and none of them worked. Dental mouth piece, CPAP machine, medicines … It’s just gotten to the point where I have to get this done.”

Despite significant injuries to his finger, toe and back, Napoli will not undergo any other surgical procedures other than the one to correct his sleep disorder.
