Browner avoids NFL fine for hit on Green

It won’t bring back Devin McCourty‘s negated pick-6 but Patriots fans will be happy to know that Brandon Browner won’t be fined for his hit on Ladarius Green that laid out the Chargers tight end before a national audience.

When the league handed out its fines, this week, Browner’s name was not on the list of those violating NFL safety guidelines.

With Green out cold at midfield, two flags came in late, penalizing Browner for unnecessary roughness for the shoulder blow to the chest that made contact with Green’s chin. The 15-yard penalty wiped out McCourty’s interception that was returned for a touchdown. Green left the game with a concussion.

The decision by the NFL doesn’t come as a complete surprise as NFL vice president of officiating...

Easley (knee) out, Hightower questionable

FOXBORO — Rookie defensive lineman Dominique Easley will miss his third game of the season Sunday after being ruled out on Friday’s injury report released by the team. Easley has been dealing with a nagging knee injury.

Rob Ninkovich (heel) continues to headline the limited players, as this is the first time he’s appeared on the injury report this season. Chandler Jones (hip) and Dont’a Hightower (shoulder), who both missed Sunday’s game, were limited. Offensive lineman Cameron Fleming (ankle), who has missed the last three games, was also limited.

Seidenberg not disciplined for Toews incident
By: DJ Bean

Dennis Seidenberg did not receive a phone call from the NHL‘€™s Department of Player Safety and will not be disciplined for a play that left Blackhawks captain Jonathan Toews injured Thursday night.

“It’€™s definitely good news and definitely a relief not to get suspended or fined or any of that stuff,”€ Seidenberg said after Friday’€™s practice.

Toews was chasing a puck into the corner after missing an open net during a second-period power play when, in an attempt to battle for position, Seidenberg knocked the Blackhawks star off the puck, sending him face-first into the boards.

Seidenberg, who was assessed a boarding minor for the play, maintained Friday that...

B's to loan out Pastrnak for World Juniors
By: DJ Bean

According to a league source, the Bruins will loan right wing David Pastrnak to the Czech Republic’€™s junior team later this month for the World Junior tournament.

Word of the development first reached America in the form of a report from Dan Cagen of the MetroWest Daily News. Czech outlet hockej.cz reported the news earlier Friday.

Pastrnak, the Bruins’€™ first-round pick (25th overall) in the 2014 draft, has played 19 games for Providence and five for Boston. He was sent back to Providence Sunday and can play four more NHL games before the first year will be burned off his three-year entry level contract.

The 18-year-old had one point (an assist) during his five-game stint in Boston’s lineup. He played mostly with...

Schefter on MFB: Patriots 'rounding into form'

ESPN’s Adam Schefter made his weekly appearance on Middays with MFB and talked about the Patriots’ prospects in the AFC as they head into the home stretch of the regular season. To hear the interview, go to the MFB audio on demand page.

It’s adding parts like Akeem Ayers and Jonathan Casillas and Alan Branch and LeGarrette Blount — guys that were essentially on the scrap heap that they’re pulling off, utilizing, making them shine in roles they did not have with other teams. it has enabled this team to get better. Chandler Jones come back at some point here, they should obviously benefit tremendously from that. I certainly...
