According to a report from CBS Sports’ Jon Heyman, the Mike Napoli situation should be resolved by next week at the latest, as the Red Sox and the free agent continue to make progress.

Napoli is said to have been in touch with a couple of other American League teams, but the Red Sox appear to be the favorite —...
FOXBORO — Rob Gronkowski and Alfonzo Dennard were the only Patriots missing from Wednesday’s practice in the rain inside Gillette Stadium Wednesday afternoon.
Danny Woodhead was in attendance, sporting a white splint on his left hand to protect the thumb injured on the first offensive snap of Wednesday’s game against the Texans. Woodhead was spotted catching balls while working on footwork drills early in practice and was not favoring the thumb.
Bill Belichick indicated on Monday that Woodhead could have returned to the game if needed but did not return as the Patriots built a 38-13 lead and coasted to a 41-28 win. Belichick said Woodhead needed medical clearance to return to practice this week, and judging by his participation on Wednesday, he received it.
Dennard, who suffered knee and hamstring injuries late in the season, was on the...
FOXBORO — Tom Brady won’t have Rob Gronkowski to lean on for the rest of the playoffs.
But he sent a clear message Wednesday in his press conference at Gillette Stadium as he and the Patriots get ready to take on the Ravens in the AFC championship.
“We learned a little bit about ourselves,” Brady said. “You prepare as if everyone’s going to be there, and then things happen in the game and you have to be able to adjust,” Brady said. “There was quite a bit of adjusting the other night, same thing could happen this weekend. Whoever’s on the field has to perform at a high level, this is the biggest game of our year, so there’s really no excuses at this point, there’s nothing beyond this week that’s guaranteed, so we’ve got to go out there and earn it.”
Brady also spoke about what kind of battle he expects. The Patriots and Ravens have played down to...
According to multiple reports, Oregon coach Chip Kelly has decided to make the jump to the NFL as coach of the Eagles.
