Easley, Blount not present at Pats practice

FOXBORO — The Patriots held practice outside in the rain and cold on the lower grass fields of Gillette Stadium on Wednesday in advance of Sunday’s game against the Dolphins. LeGarrette Blount and Dominique Easley were the only players absent.

Blount reportedly had a court date in Pittsburgh this morning, and is likely the reasoning for his absence. Easley has been dealing with a knee injury all season, but has only missed one game (Buffalo).

Chandler Jones (hip) looked like a full participant, running and cutting on the wet grass, which is a good sign for his potential return Sunday. Linebacker Chris Jones (ankle) returned to practice after not practicing since suffering the injury during a practice right...

Lester: 'I understand the disappointment'

Hours after accepting a six-year deal to join the Cubs, Jon Lester sent a tweet to fans of the Red Sox in an attempt to soothe some hard feelings.

Wrote Lester: To Red Sox Nation, I understand the disappointment. Boston will always have a big place in my heart and we’ll always consider y’all family!

Continued Lester: Extremely difficult decision for me and my family but we love the outcome and couldn’t be more excited to join the Cubs organization!

To Red Sox Nation, I understand the disappointment. Boston...

Source: Sox show interest in D-backs LHP Miley

According to an industry source, the Red Sox have engaged in discussions with the Diamondbacks about the possibility of acquiring right-hander Wade Miley. The Diamondbacks appear to be focused on acquiring pitching in return for the 28-year-old left-hander.

In parts of four seasons, Miley — a 2008 first-rounder — is 38-35 with a 3.79 ERA. He’s thrown at least 194 innings in each of the last three seasons, performing at a level described by one evaluator as a solid No. 4. He’s struck out 7.0 per nine innings in his career, including a career-high 8.4 per nine innings in 2014, though after posting ERAs of 3.33 and 3.54 in 2012 and 2013, Miley had a 4.34 ERA last season.

That said, his numbers were made worse by a putrid Diamondbacks defense, and he’s also spent his career in one of the more difficult home pitching environments in the game....

Gagne's leave 'indefinite,' Krejci hopes to play
By: DJ Bean

Both Daniel Paille and Carl Soderberg were back practicing with the Bruins Wednesday at TD Garden after missing Monday’s skate with a virus.

David Krejci and Zdeno Chara practiced for the second straight day. Chara is optimistic about playing Thursday against the Blackhawks, while Krejci remains an unknown. Krejci was noncommittal about his chances of playing Thursday, though he said he feels “much better” and would like to play. He has been limited to just 11 games this season due to multiple lower-body injuries.

Simon Gagne remains away from the team on personal leave, with Claude Julien saying that his...

Blount gets deal from judge in pot case

LeGarrette Blount has received a break from a Pittsburgh-area judge.

The judge announced Wednesday that he will dismiss a marijuana possession charge against the Patriots running back if Blount completes 50 hours of community service by a Feb. 4 court date. Blount was in Pittsburgh Wednesday morning and was expected to travel back to New England, with hopes of making practice later in the day.

There is one string attached for Blount: according to the Associated Press, the service must be performed while volunteering at a youth center, possibly in Pittsburgh’s inner city.

The 28-year-old Blount and his then-Steelers teammate Le’Veon Bell were charged after police say they found marijuana in Bell’s car during an Aug. 20 stop in a Pittsburgh suburb.

Blount was cut by the Steelers a day after leaving the Nov. 17 win over Tennessee in the final minute, upset at his lack of playing time and how the team was using him....
