Pats practice: Pryor only absent player

FOXBORO -- The Patriots nearly had perfect attendance at practice on Thursday as the team continued on-field preparations for the Jets Sunday afternoon at Gillette Stadium. Only defensive lineman Myron Pryor (back injury) was missing from the workout in sweats and shells on the lower practice field. The field had been cleared following Wednesday's blizzard that hit New England. 

 

Rookie linebacker Jermaine Cunningham has returned after dealing with a calf injury. With the return of Cunningham from injury and fellow rookie Brandon Spikes from an NFL-mandated suspension for violation of the league's substance abuse policy, the Patriots have their full compliment of linebackers in place.

Thomas to start, Lucic out for B's
By: DJ Bean

Bruins forward Milan Lucic will not be in the lineup when the Bruins face the Flyers Thursday night at TD Garden. It will be the second straight game the 22-year-old has missed with an undisclosed injury. 

 

"[He's feeling] better," coach Claude Julien said after the team's morning skate, which Lucic was not on the ice for. "Obviously he won't be in tonight, but he's getting better."

 

Julien likened Lucic's situation to that of Nathan Horton, who missed a pair of games with an undisclosed injury prior to returning in Tuesday's 6-0 victory over the Senators. 

 

"[He's] day-to-day," Julien said. "It's a lot like Horton. He's dealing with the same kind of situation as far as day-to-day is concerned."

 

Lucic leads the Bruins with 16 goals this season.

Troy Brown: Cromartie 'a liability' for Jets

Former Patriots wide receiver Troy Brown checked in with the Dale & Holley show Thursday morning and weighed in on the controversy regarding the Jets' trash-talking leading up to Sunday's AFC semifinal game in Foxboro.

 

Brown said comments from players such as Antonio Cromartie criticizing Tom Brady are likely to come back to haunt the Jets. "I guess the whole thing now is about how un-classy and unprofessional Tom Brady is," Brown said. "I feed off of that. I'm sure the guys around [Brady] feed off of it, especially this young football team. So, I don't know what the whole big deal is. Like I said a couple of minutes ago, it's football. You knock people's head off for a living. It's not golf. I know you make us tuck our shirts in and keep our socks pulled up. But it's still football at the end of the day. So, this whole thing about being un-classy and unprofessional is just ridiculous."

 

Brown, who...

Wilfork on Jets: 'Liable to see anything'

FOXBORO -- Vince Wilfork is expecting the Jets to try everything in their arsenal to keep the Patriots off-balance on Sunday in their AFC Divisional playoff at Gillette Stadium. 

 

"We've got to expect their best and we have to be prepared for everything," Wilfork said Thursday. "With it being a one-game season, we're liable to see anything, things we haven't seen, things we've seen. We kind of know what they like to do but on top of that, with it being a one-game season, you never know.

 

"We're trying just to make sure we have everything covered that we think may happen, that may occur. If it happens, it happens. If it don't happen, oh well. But we have to do a good job of preparing for these guys." 

 

Wilfork also said he hasn't given much thought to last year's playoff game when Ray Rice gashed the Patriots for an 83-yard touchdown run on the first play from scrimmage...

Arroyo: A-Gon's 'power is unbelievable'

Reds pitcher Bronson Arroyo joined the Dennis & Callahan show Thursday morning to talk baseball and promote the Hot Stove Cool Music charity event set for Saturday night at the Paradise Rock Club.

 

It’s been five years since Arroyo was traded from the Red Sox to the Reds for Wily Mo Pena, and he was asked if it felt that long. “Sometimes it does, sometimes it doesn’t,” Arroyo said. “It’s funny, I was with Kevin Youkilis doing a little cameo in a movie last offseason, and we were talking about how it seemed like time has gone so fast, and couldn’t believe that 2004 was five years ago, because sometimes it scoots by.”

 

When asked about the movie and who got the bigger part, Arroyo said, “Well, I don’t know because we haven’t seen what made the cut yet. But it’s a movie called "Goat," because that’s what they call a GTO in New York. I...
