Jets inactives: Brad Smith, Gholston out

FOXBORO - The Jets will not have one explosive weapon in their arsenal against the Patriots as kick returner Brad Smith is out with a groin injury. 

 

Smith's loss is a significant one since he runs the "Wildcat" formation and is the team's leading threat in kick-off returns this season, having returned kicks against Cincinnati and Pittsburgh for touchdowns this season. Also inactive for the Jets are FB John Conner, DE Vernon Gholston, DT Jarron Gilbert, TE Matthew Mulligan, TE Jeff Cumberland and DT Marcus Dixon. Kellen Clemens will be the third quarterback.

Shaq slips on ice, misses practice

While the Celtics got Kevin Garnett back at practice, they were without Shaquille O'Neal who slipped on some ice and has a strained adductor muscle in his right leg, according to the team. Marquis Daniels also missed most of practice after his back tightened up following a hard pick from Kendrick Perkins. "Perk welcomed me back," Daniels said. "I'm OK."

 

Without Shaq and Daniels, the Celtics were once again down to 10 players for practice. But there was good news as Perkins went through his first live practice and took his usual place in the starting five. "First day for Perk live," Doc Rivers said. "Phenomenal. He looked great. He’s in great shape. Today was the first time all year that we actually had a real first unit on the floor. It was another level because they could run anything they wanted."

Report: Pats tried to trip Jets gunner

Fox Sports' Jay Glazer showed a video of a Patriots player trying to trip a Jets gunner in the teams' Week Two game at the New Meadowlands Stadium. The video shows Patriots players forming a wall along the white stripe on the sideline. Glazer said the Jets became aware of the move after signing a Patriots practice-squad player who blew the whistle on his former team.

 

Last month, the Jets were fined $100,000 after strength and conditioning coach Sal Alosi successfully tripped Dolphins gunner Nolan Carroll. After the incident, Jets special-teams coach Mike Westhoff stated on a local radio program that the Patriots do the same thing.

Garnett practices, gets closer to return

Kevin Garnett went through the whole practice Sunday and appears poised to make his return to the court Monday against the Magic. Celtics coach Doc Rivers pushed the team hard in order for Garnett to test his strained right calf muscle. While he went through the practice without a practice without a problem, the team will wait to see how he feels Monday before making a decision.

 

"I think Kevin will go tomorrow," Rivers said. "We went to practice to see if he could go tomorrow. Meaning we’ll know that by tomorrow. If he feels good, he’ll go. If there’s anything [wrong] he will not go. I would probably put it back to-50-50."

Rodgers that: Packers crush Falcons

In one of the great performances in NFL playoff history by a quarterback, Aaron Rodgers picked apart the Falcons defense to lead the Packers to a 48-21 upset in Atlanta. Green Bay, which entered as the NFC's sixth seed, knocked off the top seeded Falcons to advance to the NFC championship game next Sunday.

 

Rodgers proved surgical in completing 31-of-36 passes for 366 yards and three touchdowns. He also rushed for a touchdown. Green Bay never had to punt on the night, as the Packers set a franchise record for most points in a playoff game.

 

Yet a defensive play proved pivotal. At the end of the first half, with the Packers leading, 21-14, the Falcons had driven into Green Bay territory, in range for a long field goal attempt. But Atlanta, on second-and-19 from the Packers' 35-yard line, saw a Matt Ryan pass get picked off and run back 70 yards by Tramon Wiliams for a touchdown. Instead of cutting into the seven-point...
