Moore signed off Pats' p-squad by Dallas

Cornerback Sterling Moore has been plucked off the Patriots practice squad by the Cowboys, according to Moore's agent, Jordan Woy.

The 22-year-old Moore, who was signed away from the Raiders last year and eventually became a key part of New England's rotation in the secondary, had 13 tackles this season in eight games before being placed on the practice squad. The 5-foot-10, 200-pounder out of SMU, who played both corner and safety for New England, achieved his greatest success with the Patriots in last year's AFC title game when he knocked away a late pass intended for Baltimore receiver Lee Evans that would have given the Ravens a fourth-quarter lead.

Sox won't tender Atchison, Hill, Sweeney

Scott Atchison told WEEI.com Friday afternoon that the Red Sox have informed the 36-year-old reliever that they will not be tendering him a contract, making Atchison a free agent for a second straight season. The team later announced that they have not tendered contracts to Atchison, Rich Hill and Ryan Sweeney. 

The team has until midnight to make a decision whether or not to tender contracts to the following 11 arbitration-eligible players -- Atchison, Alfredo Aceves, Hill, Andrew Miller, Franklin Morales, Sweeney, Jacoby Ellsbury, Daniel Bard, Craig Breslow, Andrew Bailey and Jarrod Saltalamacchia.

Atchison was non-tendered a year ago, choosing to re-sign with the Red Sox.

"I would like to stay in Boston," he said by phone, "but now we're going to have to see what's out there."

Atchison appeared in 42 games for the Red Sox, compiling a 1.58 ERA, while walking just nine batters in 51 1/3 innings.

Rivers: 'I don't like' $250,000 fine of Spurs

Doc Rivers admitted before Friday's game with the Blazers that he didn't like the $250,000 fine handed down by NBA Commissioner David Stern Friday night against the Spurs for sitting four of their players and sending them home for Thursday night's game against the Heat in Miami. 

Gregg Popovich, a close friend of Rivers, did not dress Tim Duncan, Tony Parker and Danny Green for the game on national TV Thurday night, sending them home on a Southwest Airlines flight. Popovich said he did what he needed to in the best interest of his team, which was playing a brutal stretch of four road games in five nights and finishing up a road trip. 

Stern said in a statement announcing the fine that the Spurs did a "disservice to the league and its fans."  

Rivers said he understood but sympathized more with Popovich. 

"I don’t like it," Rivers said. "I do get the other side of it, but it's a...

Green, Wilcox 'expect' to play vs. Blazers

Jeff Green and Chris Wilcox came out early for warmups Friday before their game against the Blazers and proclaimed themselves ready to play against the Blazers at TD Garden. 

Green sprained his right knee in the third quarter of Wednesday's loss to the Nets at the Garden. Green returned to the game late in the fourth quarter but did not practice on Thursday. He came out two hours before tipoff Friday with a white wrap on the knee and tested it with jump shots. Wilcox came out of Wednesday's game with an illness and also missed practice on Thursday. 

After their pre-game warm-up, Green and Wilcox told reporters in the locker room they would be ready to come off the bench for the Celtics. 

After practice Thursday, coach Doc Rivers called Jeff Green and Chris Wilcox "uncertain" to play against the Trail Blazers, adding that he thought Green would be able to play but wasn't 100 percent sure. 

The Celtics are...
