Belichick: Patriots will activate OL Cannon

Patriots coach Bill Belichick said Tuesday afternoon he expects rookie offensive lineman Marcus Cannon to be activated to the 53-man roster "sometime today." The TCU product, who was taken in the fifth round of the 2011 draft by New England, was diagnosed with non-Hodgkin's lymphoma prior to the NFL draft in the spring. As a result, the 23-year-old began the season on the non-football injury list, which forced him to sit out at least the first six weeks of the regular season. He was cleared to practice Oct. 25, and the Patriots had until Tuesday to decide to either put him on the active roster or place him on injured reserve, which would have sidelined him for the remainder of the season. Belichick added that there were no corresponding roster moves to announce at this time. For more Patriots news, check out weei.com/patriots.

Julien: Lucic could have hit Miller harder
By: DJ Bean

Claude Julien said after Tuesday's morning skate that the team was "convinced" Milan Lucic's hit on Ryan Miller "wasn't deliberate" and were therefore pleased with Brendan Shanahan's decision to not suspend the forward. 

Julien said that he doesn't believe goalies should be hit, but noted the difference between a hit and a collision. He believed Saturday's incident was a collision.

"I know for a fact that if Milan had intended on hitting [Miller], he would have never got up," Julien said of Lucic. "We all know how hard he hits. It speaks for itself."

Sandusky: 'I am innocent'

Jerry Sandusky spoke with Bob Costas in a telephone interview on NBC's "Rock Center" on Monday night. Sandusky, the former defensive coordinator at Penn State, is charged with 40 counts of sexual abuse against children.

"I say that I am innocent of those charges," Sandusky told Costas. 

Costas asked if that meant he was "completely innocent" of all charges.

"Well I could say that, you know, I have done some of those things," Sandusky said. "I have horsed around with kids. I have showered after workouts. I have hugged them and I have touched their leg without intent of sexual contact. So if you look at it that way, there are things that would be accurate."

Sandusky told Costas that Mike McQueary's assertion that he witnessed Sandusky raping a boy in a shower in the Penn State locker room in 2002 was "false." Costas asked Sandusky for his version...

Mashup: Jets' Ryan sorry for confrontation

Rex Ryan was caught on video shouting an obscenity at a Patriots fan who was taunting the Jets coach after Sunday night's game at MetLife Stadium. After the Jets' 37-16 loss, the fan yelled, "Hey, Rex, [Bill] Belichick is better than you." Responded Ryan: "Shut the [expletive] up."

On Monday, Ryan apologized. An NFL spokesman said the league is looking at the situation, and there is speculation that Ryan will face a fine.

"I was emotional,” Ryan said. “It was an emotional time. I was coming in. You know, I obviously made a mistake. I was full of emotion and just popped off. Obviously, I know I represent the National Football League, I know I represent the Jets and I know it was a mistake. And I apologize for it. This is who I am. I made a mistake. I’m about as big a competitor as there is. At that time, I was in no mood to hear anything. But I also understand I have to handle that better."

Source: Four teams courted Papelbon

MILWAUKEE -- According to a major league source, four teams showed serious interest in free agent closer Jonathan Papelbon prior to the reliever signing a four-year, $50,000,058 deal (with a $13 million vesting option) with the Phillies. The list of clubs included Philadelphia, but not the Red Sox, who never made a formal offer to Papelbon.

Two of the teams, besides Philadelphia, were in position to make a serious offer, with one potentially trumping the money settled on with the Phillies. But as Papelbon stated in his Monday press conference, the combination of Philly's aggressive negotiations and the potential to win won the closer over.

"The Phillies showed they were interested in me and I wanted to make this decision quick and get it over with," he said. "I didn't want to sit there and debate on whether I go back to...
