Source: Faulk has ACL tear

A league source has confirmed to WEEI.com that Patriots running back Kevin Faulk has a torn ACL in his right knee.

 

Faulk injured the knee in the fourth quarter of Sunday's loss to the Jets. He stayed on the ground for a few minutes after the injury but was able to walk off the field. He did not speak to the media after the game, but was quite emotional in the locker room, hugging several players and a member of the training staff before leaving the Meadowlands.

 

A veteran of all three Super Bowl winners with the Patriots, Faulk is the longest-tenured member of the team and an offensive captain. 

 

The Boston Globe was first to report the story.

B's Thomas missing from Tuesday's practice
By: DJ Bean

One day after the Bruins held goaltender Tim Thomas out of the team’s black/white scrimmage, the 2008-09 Vezina winner was once again missing when Group A took the ice for Tuesday’s practice.

 

Thomas is recovering from offseason hip surgery and participated in some of the team’s captain’s practices earlier in the month in an effort to be 100 percent by the time the Bruins begin their season next month in Prague. Even so, the team sees no use in rushing the 36-year-old back.

 

“Something that we’ve said right from the get-go, [is that] we’d monitor [him],” Bruins coach Claude Julien said Monday. “He’s had that surgery and we have to take our time to bring him [back].”

 

Julien added Monday that although Thomas “is actually ahead of schedule," the team’s plan is to “bring him along slowly.”

Braylon Edwards busted for DWI

Jets receiver Braylon Edwards was arrested for driving drunk early Tuesday morning in New York's West Side, reportedly possessing double the legal limit of alcohol. The wideout blew a 0.16 on a Breathalyzer test, double the state's legal limit of 0.08.

 

The report states the 27-year-old was arrested at 5:15 a.m. after police pulled him over for having overly-tinted windows on his Range Rover.

 

Edwards, who did have a passenger in the car with him, was still in police custody as of early Tuesday morning and was scheduled to be arraigned later in the day. Edwards had previously run into trouble with the law when he was arrested in Cleveland for assault, ultimately pleading no contest. 

 

The Jets issued a statement saying: "We are very disappointed in Braylon's actions this morning. The Player Protect program is in place for our organization to prevent this situation. Braylon is aware of this...

Mashup: Jacobs a Giant distraction

Giants running back Brandon Jacobs has taken over the spotlight in New York, and not for good reasons. He's been upset since losing his starting job in the preseason, and he's asked for a meeting with team officials following his helmet-throwing incident Sunday night in Indianapolis. There had been speculation that he would request a trade, but later reports indicated that's not the case. In the Bergen Record, Tara Sullivan writes: Brandon Jacobs is on an unparalleled streak of selfishness, which for him, is saying a lot. Read more about that story, plus check out videos, trivia and more, at Tuesday's Morning Mashup.

The Dana-Farber Genetics and Prevention Program offers advanced genetic tests to determine whether individuals are at risk for inherited forms of cancer. Dr. Garber says, “A visit to the Cancer Genetics and Prevention Clinic usually includes time with both a physician and a genetic counselor, both of whom have expertise in all forms of inherited cancer syndromes. We educate patients about cancer risk and its implications for them and their family members. Working with referring physicians, we design individualized programs to monitor for the earliest signs of cancer — diagnosing if it occurs, and, in many cases, preventing it from arising.”
