Ortiz likely will sit out remaining games

With three games to play — and little on the line – the Red Sox are playing it safe.

Mike Napoli (toe, finger, back) and Brock Holt (concussion) are, according to Red Sox manger John Farrell, not likely to see game action the rest of the way. And now David Ortiz figures to be joining the duo on the sidelines for the remainder of the season.

The designated hitter has felt soreness in his left wrist after aggravating it during Tuesday night’s game. And...

Siliga DNP, Charles limited but expects to play

Revis: Pats 'doing great' at limiting deep balls

FOXBORO — Last week against the Raiders, some questioned the sight of Patriots cornerback Darrelle Revis playing off some of Oakland’s quicker receivers, particularly James Jones, Denarius Thomas and Rod Streater. That approach may have played a role in the fact that Revis yielding five catches for 63 yards in what appeared to be man coverage.

Revis was asked Thursday after practice about giving those receivers some sort of cushion.

“Every week is a different strategy and different game plan,” he said. “Oakland did a great job of taking care of the ball as well — [David] Carr did. Every week is a different emphasis. As a secondary as a whole, deep balls will kill you. They kill any...

Schefter on MFB: KC 'a tough spot' for Patriots

ESPN’s Adam Schefter checked in with Middays with MFB on Thursday to discuss the Patriots and NFL news. To hear the interview, go to the MFB audio on demand page.

The Patriots have not looked impressive over the first three weeks, but Schefter cautioned pessimistic fans not to get too worried this early in the season.

“I’ll take a 2-1 start every time, with the criticism and questions, because teams evolve as the season goes on. There are peaks and valleys, fits where they go through where teams look better than they had,” he said. “They have not looked particularly strong. I think they’ve looked a little slow on the offensive side of the football so far. They just have not looked like the efficient machine that they’ve been in other years. Now, that’s not to say that they won’t become that starting Monday night...
