Brandon Spikes returns to Patriots practice

FOXBORO -- Linebacker Brandon Spikes was back at practice on Thursday as the Patriots practiced in sweats and shells on the upper grass fields at Gillette Stadium. Spikes injured his right knee during the loss to the Giants on Nov. 6 and hasn't played since. The team is continuing its field preparation for the Redskins this Sunday at FedEx Field outside Washington, D.C. 

Spikes, who reportedly sprained his MCL, was wearing a protective wrap over his right knee during practice. 

The only two players to miss practice were rookie running back Stevan Ridley and starting right tackle Sebastian Vollmer, who injured his right foot in the win over the Eagles on Nov. 27. Ridley also missed Wednesday's practice for what the team said was a non-injury related issue.

Cherington: Sox unlikely to pursue Darvish

DALLAS -- GM Ben Cherington suggested that the Red Sox are unlikely to pursue Japanese star pitcher Yu Darvish, who will be posted for bidding by Major League Baseball teams today. Darvish's team, the Hokkaido Nippon Ham Fighters, will subject the 25-year-old to the same bidding process that led to Daisuke Matsuzaka's acquisition by the Sox in 2006, when the Sox won the post with a $51.11 million bid then signed the pitcher to a six-year, $52 million contract.

Darvish is projected to require a similar -- if not greater -- investment. That being the case, Cherington suggested the Sox were unlikely to move on the pitcher, given that the team has substantial commitments (in excess of $50 million in 2012 in salary) and a rotation that is fronted by Jon Lester, Josh Beckett and Clay Buchholz, even at a time when the back end of the rotation remains undefined.

"I’m not sure the timing of this offseason puts us in a position to be the most...

Marchand: Seguin issue 'a misunderstanding'

Bruins forward Brad Marchand checked in with Mut & Merloni Thursday afternoon for his weekly discussion, and was asked about the healthy scratch of Tyler Seguin in Winnipeg on Tuesday. Seguin was benched for what the Bruins called an "attendance issue."

"He's very young, he's only 19 and he's learning," said Marchand. "What happened was we went to Winnipeg and the time changed back an hour and he didn't know that, so he changed it back an hour as well. He changed it two hours back by accident. It was a misunderstanding and stuff like that happens, especially when everyone is so tired and stuff."

Marchand was asked if this part of an ongoing problem with Seguin. Claude Julien told the media Tuesday that Seguin has missed meetings "more than a few times."

"I can't recall him being late for anything late this year, I think he might have done it last year a time or two," Marchand...

Caron: 'We tried calling' Seguin Tuesday
By: DJ Bean

 Bruins forward Jordan Caron, who was rooming with Tyler Seguin when the team arrived early Tuesday in Winnipeg, said that he simply thought Seguin was sleeping a few minutes later Tuesday morning. 

Seguin missed a team breakfast and team meeting and was scratched for Tuesday night's game, with coach Claude Julien saying the youngster had missed meetings "more than a few times."

"It was an accident. I got up real early and didn't want to wake him up," Caron said after Thursday's morning skate. "I went to breakfast, and then the meeting started. We tried calling him a few times. It's an accident. I don't think it's anybody's fault. It happens."

Caron said the players did not have time to physically go to Seguin's room and wake him up during breakfast, because the meeting was about to start. He specifically noted that Seguin was indeed in the room, and that "he wasn't out or anything." The...
