Vollmer lone player missing at Pats practice

FOXBORO -- Offensive lineman Sebastian Vollmer was the only player not spotted at Patriots practice outside on the upper grass fields on Wednesday at Gillette Stadium. Vollmer injured his right ankle in the second quarter on Sunday in Philadelphia and left after the game in a protective walking boot. 

The team conducted a walkthough in sweats but no shells, pads or helmets in beginning on-field preparations for the winless Colts this Sunday in Foxboro.

Returning to practice for the first time in over a month was linebacker Dane Fletcher, who has been nursing a thumb injury. Also spotted at practice were linebacker Brandon Spikes (knee) and Chad Ochocinco (hamstring), both of whom missed Sunday's game against the Eagles.

BC's Kuechly ACC Defensive Player of Year

Boston College junior linebacker Luke Kuechly was named ACC Defensive Player of the Year Wednesday. Kuechly, who on Monday was named a unanimous All-ACC first-team selection, was tabbed on 30 of 45 ballots by the Atlantic Coast Sports Media Association. NC State cornerback David Amerson, who leads the nation in interceptions with 11, was second with 14 votes.

Kuechly was second in voting for ACC Player of the Year, behind Virginia Tech junior running back David Wilson, who also was named ACC Offensive Player of the Year.

Kuechly ended his season Friday vs. Miami by returning an interception for a touchdown and breaking his own ACC single-season record for tackles with 191. He also set the school career tackles record with 532 (passing Stephen Boyd's 524).

Kuechly is speculated as a high first-round draft pick in the NFL, but he said he has yet to decide whether he will depart a year early from BC.

Gammons: Sox embarrassed again by leaks

Hall of Fame baseball writer Peter Gammons made his weekly appearance on the Mut & Merloni show Wednesday to talk about Bobby Valentine as the manager of the Red Sox.

Gammons said the Red Sox' latest blunder is how they failed to notify runner-up Gene Lamont before leaking the news about Valentine.

"I think the one thing that has left a really bad taste in people's mouths around baseball … is that somebody in the Red Sox was so excited about getting the publicity for this that they went and leaked it before Ben Cherington had the opportunity to talk to Gene Lamont," Gammons said. "I would think John Henry and Tom Werner would be terribly embarrassed about this, because it really is embarrassing. It's a major topic of conversation around the sport, and it's too bad. You certainly know that's not Ben's style. It just isn't right. Gene Lamont is a really good man and I think would have been an excellent manager. He has a lot...

Belichick: Trashing Colts 'bunch of garbage'

FOXBORO -- Realizing he would be asked often about motivating his team against an 0-11 Colts team this weekend, Patriots head coach Bill Belichick came out on the attack to questions Wednesday about the quality of New England's opponent at Gillette Stadium. In short, Belichick is telling his players to forget about Indianapolis' record.

"[Patriots players have] heard me talk about it every week, so they really don't care about their record, and we really don't," Belichick said, before passionately asking his own question. "What difference does it make? How somebody played two weeks go against somebody else -- I mean, who cares? Us or anybody else. It doesn't matter. The only thing that matters is how we and the Colts perform against each on Sunday. That's all that matters. Who cares who won three weeks ago in some game with some other players? It doesn't matter.

"We talk about it every week. It doesn't matter. There's 16 games...
