Sanders not fined on Ward hit

FOXBORO -- There was no letter delivered to James Sanders on Friday from NFL offices, indicating that the league did not fine him for the hit on Pittsburgh's Hines Ward last Sunday night. 

 

Ward went over the middle late in the first quarter and was hit low by Patrick Chung. Sanders came in for support on the tackle and collided with Ward, colliding with the wide receiver's helmet. Ward went to the sideline with a concussion and did not return, snapping his streak of consecutive games with a catch at 186. 

 

However, Patriots running back BenJarvus Green-Ellis was fined $5,000 for a chop block and Lamarr Woodley was fined $12,500 for his late hit on Tom Brady in the second half - which was flagged 15 yards for unnecessary roughness on a touchdown pass to Rob Gronkowski in the third quarter.

Fred Taylor has 'itch' to return Sunday

FOXBORO -- Running back Fred Taylor sounded optimistic and anxious to return to game action this week for the Patriots as they host the Indianapolis Colts at Gillette Stadium. Taylor has missed the last six games with turf toe.

 

"Of course I do, of course I do," Taylor replied when asked if he feels ready to return, if activated Sunday. "I haven't played in a while, got that itch and would definitely love to be back out there. I'm going to keep improving."

 

The duo of BenJarvus Green-Ellis and Danny Woodhead have carried most of the load in the running game in Taylor's absence.

 

"It's his decision and he knows what's best for the team going forward," Taylor said. "Whatever that is I have to live with it and just be ready for it. I had a very solid week of practice, a lot better than last week, continuing to improve and we'll see how it goes."

Law: Don't trade Kelly for Adrian Gonzalez

Keith Law of ESPN.com joined the Minor Details Podcast to discuss the Red Sox' prospect inventory and the team's potential chips to make deals this offseason. While Law suggested that the team's prospect depth will allow it to talk with most clubs about nearly any player available, he felt that the Sox should not trade a player like top prospect Casey Kelly in exchange for a player whom they would only have under control for one year such as Padres first baseman Adrian Gonzalez, who is eligible for free agency after 2011.

 

"In the Red Sox' division, I wonder if they're ever really high enough of a probability of making the playoffs that it's worth giving up prospect depth," said Law. "You could probably look at Kelly and say he could be in the big leagues in 2012. Maybe not with the Red Sox, but he's not that far away. ... Casey Kelly is not untouchable for me, but he's pretty darn close to it. I don't think I'd trade...

Savard cleared to practice with Bruins
By: DJ Bean

WILMINGTON -- Bruins general manager Peter Chiarelli said Friday morning that Marc Savard is cleared to practice with the Bruins but will not take physical contact.

 

"This morning he passed one of the tests, which was a conditioning test, so he's able to practice with the team, non-contact, so he can do line drills and non-contact drills," Chiarelli said, "so that's good news."

 

Savard, who has not played or practiced with the team this season due to post-concussion syndrome, will also travel with the team.

 

"It's very good news. If Marc were to have his druthers, he'd be back with the team two weeks ago. That's what Marc's all about," Chiarelli said. "It's good news. We're on a crunch of games here it seems where it looks like we're in a compressed schedule here, so it will be good to get a player of his caliber back. This is a real positive...
