Taylor: 'I would be a fool' to complain
By: DJ Bean

Patriots running back Fred Taylor joined Michael Mutnansky and Larry Ridley on WEEI on Friday, discussing the team's upcoming game with the Bills and the fact that he was a healthy scratch for the first time in his career last Sunday against the Packers. 

 

Taylor, who is in his 13th season, said there's no reason to question the team's decision to give carries to the likes of BenJarvus Green-Ellis and Danny Woodhead, both of whom have surprised many with their play this year. 

 

"You look at chemistry," Taylor said. "You look at the old saying, 'When it's not broken, don't fix it.'

 

"I would be a fool -- capital F-O-O-L -- to try and come back and create disruption or some type of crazy antics. That's not in me. This week, my preparation hasn't changed. I understand that we're rolling, and this is why we play."

Lucic hearing scheduled for Sunday
By: DJ Bean

According to a tweet from TSN's Darren Dreger, a hearing has been set for Sunday between the league and Bruins forward Milan Lucic. The 22-year-old faces a suspension after receiving a match penalty for clocking Thrashers defenseman Freddy Meyer in the temple on Thursday following Meyer's high hit on Lucic. Because Gregory Campbell plays for the Bruins, Mike Murphy will handle the hearing rather than Colin Campbell.

 

Lucic said after the game that he -- like coach Claude Julien -- felt Meyer's hit was dirty, though Lucic added that he would "face the consequences" for the punch that refs deemed intent to injure.

 

The hit from Meyer resulted in a line-brawl between all skaters on the ice, with Nathan Horton fighting Evander Kane, Marc Savard taking on Bryan Little, and Andrew Ference dropping the gloves with Anthony Stewart....

Pats practice: TBC, Cunningham return

FOXBORO -- Linebackers Tully Banta-Cain and Jermaine Cunningham returned to Patriots practice on Friday on the lower practice field outside Gillette Stadium. Also back on the practice field after missing on Wednesday and Thursday were Deion Branch and Aaron Hernandez.

 

However, after returning on Thursday, defensive lineman Brandon Deaderick was again missing on Friday. Also absent were Mike Wright, Dan Connolly and James Sanders. The team practiced in sweats and shells as they had their final workout before Christmas. They leave Saturday for Western New York and their Sunday match-up with the Bills in Orchard Park, NY.
