Doc 'doubts' if Shaq plays Tuesday

WALTHAM -- Shaquille O'Neal missed his second straight practice on Monday with a knee bruise suffered late in Friday's game against the Knicks and likely won't play on Tuesday in Detroit, according to coach Doc Rivers. 

 

"I doubt if he plays [Tuesday] but we'll see," Rivers said following practice, which didn't include O'Neal. "If he has a chance [to play] he'll make the trip." 

 

O'Neal instead spent the time in the swimming pool with fellow injured big man Kendrick Perkins as both worked on therapy for knee injuries. The team did get good news on another O'Neal. Jermaine O'Neal returned to practice on Monday and will make the trip to Detroit.

 

"He had a good practice and he'll play," Rivers said. "Obviously, it could swell or something but right now, he looked good." 

 

Rivers said Jermaine O'Neal, who practiced with the first...

Meriweather on D&H: Moss still elite

Patriots defensive back Brandon Meriweather joined the Dale & Holley show from Gillette Stadium during WEEI's Patriots Monday and talked about Sunday's 28-28 victory over the Vikings.

 

"I think we're jelling," Meriweather said of the defense. "I think we're making strides to be better. And I think we're taking coaching. We don't have any selfish guys on the defense. We don't have any guys who are all about themselves. Everybody on the defense is taking strides to help each other out, and I think it's starting to show. I don't think we're where we want to be yet, but I think everybody's buying into the system."

 

Meriweather said former teammate Randy Moss "was like my big brother," and he insisted Moss is still one of the top receivers in the NFL. "As in judging the ball, it's only one person out there like it, and that's Larry Fitzgerald. As in hands, it's only one person out there...

Thomas named No. 1 star of the week
By: DJ Bean

WILMINGTON -- Bruins goaltender Tim Thomas was named the NHL's No. 1 star of the week on Monday. Thomas made 49 saves in two starts over the course of the week, winning games over the Maple Leafs and Senators in shutout fashion.

 

On the season, Thomas, 36 has allowed just three goals in winning all six of his starts, leading the NHL in goals against average (0.50), save percentage (.984) and shutouts (3). In 43 games last season, Thomas posted a 2.56 GAA with a .915 save percentage and five shutouts.

Wilfork on D&H: Defense stands tall

Patriots defensive lineman Vince Wilfork stopped by to visit with Dale & Holley at Gillette Stadium on Monday morning as part of WEEI's Patriots Monday, one day after a 28-18 victory over the Vikings.

 

Wilfork was emotional after the Patriots stuffed the Vikings on fourth-and-goal just before the end of the first half. "All year we say we want to play well in the red area, goal line we want to be good, and short yardage we want to be good," Wilfork said. "So, a great opportunity for us right there to step up. We had one earlier, a third-and-goal, and I still don't think he scored, but it is what it is. So, we had another chance to come back and make a stop, especially on fourth down. You know what? The guys did a real good job on that play, just basically swarming to the ball, getting to the ball — like I said, we knew [Adrian Peterson] was going to get it — and just walked away. They didn't come up with any...

Esiason on D&C: Favre alienating Vikings

CBS Sports NFL analyst Boomer Esiason made his weekly appearance on the Dennis & Callahan show Monday morning. Esiason praised BenJarvus Green-Ellis and Danny Woodhead for their performances in the Patriots' win over the Vikings on Sunday, and he said the Patriots have earned their spot atop the AFC.

 

"You're beating the best of the best," Esiason said. "You can't say right now that the New England Patriots aren't the best in the AFC. Their record not only amplifies that, but the teams that they're beating tells you that. Because they've beaten some of the best teams in football."

 

Esiason said he's not concerned that the Patriots will have a letdown next Sunday when they play the lowly Browns in Cleveland. "The Patriots aren't a normal team," he said. "They don't seem to get too caught up in everything that's going on around them. I guess the coach does a pretty good job of keeping a...
