Goodell: 'There will be an agreement'

LOWELL — After receiving a doctorate on behalf of his late father and addressing more than 2,000 graduates of UMass-Lowell's Class of 2010, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell said that when it comes to the labor situation, "there will be an agreement" between the players and owners.

"There's really no specific update on the negotiations at this time," Goodell said. "We do have meetings scheduled in the next few weeks and we do have work to do. But there's still a lot of football to be played, so we're going to be playing this season with absolutely no interruption and it's not unusual that we are where we are. I don't think any of us are surprised. We need to get to work, but there will be an agreement."

Red Sox Recap: Knees and lower halves

While the Red Sox and Tim Wakefield were getting roughed up by the Royals, 12-5, Friday night at Fenway Park, there was plenty of injury drama to go around. Before the game Jacoby Ellsbury talked about how he came back too early from his rib injury -- resulting in a trip to the disabled list -- while Daisuke Matsuzaka explained what he meant when describing his "sore lower half" Thursday night. After the the Sox loss Dustin Pedroia fired back in regard to the line of questioning about whether or not his knee was to blame for a recent slump. There was also David Ortiz talking about how he was slapped with a new perspective on life after attending Jose Lima's wake. Oh, and Bill Hall actually pitched a perfect ninth inning.
