Jets lose safety to 'severe' leg injury

The Jets secondary will have to rely more on the talents of their two shut-down corners after coach Rex Ryan announced Friday that starting safety Jim Leonhard had to be carted off the practice field in Florham Park, N.J., with a "severe" leg injury. 

 

Ryan said Leonhard likely suffered a break of the leg and will be out against the Patriots. Leonhard leads the Jets secondary with 65 tackles and served as the signal-caller for the secondary, including cornerbacks Darrelle Revis and Antonio Cromartie. WEEI.com's Kirk Minihane is on site covering the Jets in Florham Park and will have more on how this injury could impact Monday night's game.

Sox would have dumped Papelbon for Rivera

According to ESPN.com, the Red Sox made a two-year, $30 million offer to Mariano Rivera, with the idea that, had he accepted, they would not have tendered a contract for the 2011 season to closer Jonathan Papelbon. Rivera instead is close to finalizing a two-year, $30 million offer to return to the Yankees, according to the Associated Press.

 

Rivera had a 1.80 ERA and converted 33 of 38 save opportunities for the Yankees in 2010. Meanwhile, Papelbon -- who entered last year with a career 1.84 ERA -- had a career-worst 3.90 mark, and while he saved 37 contests, he also blew eight saves.

King on D&H: McCourty key for Patriots

Peter King of Sports Illustrated and NBC Sports made his weekly appearance on the Dale & Holley show Friday afternoon and previewed the Patriots-Jets matchup. King said he only recently decided that the Patriots can win the game, based on one player's performance in last week's win over the Lions.

 

"I think the Patriots will [win]," King said. "If you would have asked me two weeks ago, or even especially before the Detroit game, there's a good chance I would have said the Jets. But something happened in that Detroit game to convince me that the Patriots are OK. And that is the play of Devin McCourty. I just think that he now gives Santonio Holmes a real tough day on that side of the field.

 

"Hey, look, I have no idea what [Bill] Belichick will do. Nobody does. But I think it's logical to suggest that on more than half of the obvious passing plays in this game that Devin McCourty's going to be on...

Sturm discusses deal that wasn't
By: DJ Bean

After taking a day off from skating at Ristuccia Arena in Wilmington on Friday, Marco Sturm spoke about his situation with the team. The Bruins reportedly had a deal in place with the Kings to send him to LA, but health issues held up the trade. Sturm, who waived his no-trade clause to facilitate the deal, said he did not take a physical and is unsure of why the deal fell through. 

 

Sturm said that he was willing to waive his no-trade clause after a talk with general manager Peter Chiarelli. The team needs to shed salary, and Sturm, who will have a $3.5 million cap hit when he returns from his torn ACL and MCL, is a logical candidate to go as a result. 

 

 “I’ve got to see the situation," Sturm told reporters. "I had a talk with Peter and he...

Pats practice: Wright, Pryor, Wilhite out

FOXBORO -- For second straight day, CB Jonathan Wilhite, and defensive linemen Myron Pryor and Mike Wright were the only three missing from Patriots practice as the team worked out in sweats and shells on the main stadium field. 

 

Wilhite has missed the last two games with a hip injury. Pryor suffered a back injury against Cleveland and has been inactive for the three games since Nov. 7. Wright missed the Thanksgiving Day game in Detroit after injuring his neck and suffering a concussion against Indianapolis on Nov. 21.
