Belichick: Woodhead 'seemed all right'

With less than five minutes remaining in the fourth quarter of Thursday's 31-14 win over the Buccaneers, Patriots running back Danny Woodhead -- playing on special teams -- took a vicious and dizzying helmet-to-helmet hit from Devin Holland while covering a punt. He made it to the sidelines but medical staff immediately took his helmet away and tended to him.

"I saw him in the locker room," Pats coach Bill Belichick said afterward. "He seemed all right. We'll see how it goes." 

“He got hit pretty hard," added quarterback Tom Brady. "That’s football. There’s guys moving fast out there, especially on punt returns or any of the returns. Things are happening so fast. He just turned his head and the guy really gave it to him good. He’s a tough guy. Everyone’s worried about him, as his teammates would be. Hopefully, he’s OK."

"I'm just trying to coach our team...

Beckett, Pedroia pace Sox past Royals

KANSAS CITY -- Josh Beckett earned his first victory since July 23, and Dustin Pedroia continued his dominance of Royals pitching with three hits, as the Red Sox kicked off their four-game series at Kauffman Stadium with a 4-3 win over KC Thursday night.

Beckett finished his seven-inning stint by giving up three runs on seven hits, striking out four and not walking a batter. The 110-pitch outing was the first time the starter had gone seven innings since he accomplished the feat against the Royals July 28.

Pedroia paced the Sox attack with two singles, a double and three RBI (all coming with two outs). The 3-for-4 effort made the Sox second baseman 12-for-22 against the Royals in five meetings this season. 

The only other RBI for the Red Sox came from Jason Varitek, whose second-inning single scored Josh Reddick, tying the game at 1-1 at the time. 

Beckett did allow the Royals to come back after a Pedroia single plated a...

So easy: Brady shines, Ocho scores in win

Tom Brady engineered touchdown drives on four of the first five possessions of the night and the defensive line completely dominated as the Patriots rolled to a 31-14 win over the Buccaneers at Raymond James Stadium Thursday night. 

Brady started all six Patriots drives of the first half and threw touchdown passes to Aaron Hernandez and Chad Ochocinco as the Patriots scored 21 points in the opening quarter. Brady's night came to an end at halftime as he rested the entire second half and finished 11-of-19 for 118 yards and two touchdowns with a 111.3 quarterback rating. 

Brady found Hernandez wide open on a seam route for a 16-yard TD to open the scoring. On the next Patriots possession, the Bucs defense left Ochocinco completely unaccounted for in the red zone and Brady lofted an eight-yard pass to Ochocinco for his first TD in a Patriots uniform.

BenJarvus Green-Ellis ran in a pair of scores in the first half as the Patriots took...

BC's Harris could miss 1-2 games

Boston College running back Montel Harris will be out the next 3-4 weeks while he recovers from a knee injury. The time frame will keep him out out of the Eagles' season-opener against Northwestern on Sept. 3 and possibly the following week against Central Florida. Harris needs 126 yards to pass Derrick Knight and become the Eagles' all-time leading rusher. With 1,002 yards he also would set the conference record for rushing.

Harris missed last year's Fight Hunger Bowl with the knee injury, which required surgery, and had a relapse during practice this week.
