Report: Favre uncertain about health

ESPN's Ed Werder is reporting that Brett Favre is uncertain that he will be able to make it through his Vikings' game against the Patriots Sunday afternoon. The Vikings' QB, who is battling an injured ankle, has said that he expects to making the start against the Pats, which would extend his streak of consecutive starts to 292 games. "My expectations are to play and play well enough for us to have a chance to win this game," Favre told Werder Saturday.

Casey Kelly's Arizona season ends

With five innings in which he allowed four runs (three earned) for the Peoria Javelinas on Saturday, Red Sox top prospect Casey Kelly reached 16 innings in his Arizona Fall League season, reaching the targeted 15-20 innings that the Sox wanted him to throw in the AFL. And so, after four starts, Kelly's time with Peoria is now done.

 

The right-hander, who turned 21 on Oct. 4, had a 6.75 ERA while striking out 11 and walking four in the AFL. His final ERA was inflated by one terrible start, in which he permitted eight runs in two innings. Otherwise, he pitched well in three of his four starts. On Saturday, he topped out at 94 mph while showing a swing-and-miss curveball and changeup.

Thomas shuts out Sens, improves to 6-0
By: DJ Bean

Tim Thomas made 29 saves and picked up his second straight shutout (third of the season) as the Bruins blanked the Senators, 4-0, in Ottawa. He is now off to the best start by a Bruins goalie since Tiny Thompson 73 years ago.

 

David Krejci, Tyler Seguin, Jordan Caron, and Milan Lucic scored for the Bruin, who improved to 6-2-0 on the young season. The second and third lines saw shuffling during the first period, with Blake Wheeler and Michael Ryder swapping spots in the second and third lines, but the offense did not suffer as a result on a night in which the Senators were particularly sloppy.

 

The team remains undefeated on the road (4-0) and in games started by Thomas (6-0). In starting 6-0, Thomas became the first Bruins goalie since Tiny Thompson 73 years ago to do so. With the shutout on Saturday, Tim Thomas is already approaching his career-high for a season. The veteran...
