Statement game: Pats hang on for win

FOXBORO -- Wes Welker set up a key touchdown with a 73-yard pass from Tom Brady on the first play of the second half while BenJarvus Green-Ellis scored a pair of 3-yard touchdowns and rushed for 136 yards as the Patriots pulled away from the Jets, 30-21, Sunday afternoon at Gillette Stadium to improve to 4-1 on the season and capture their 19th straight regular-season home win. Welker, filling in for the injured Julian Edelman on punt returns, returned four punts for 54 yards.

BC's Harris to seek medical waiver for '12

The Boston College football team announced Sunday that it would seek a medical hardship waiver for senior running back Montel Harris and senior defensive tackle Kaleb Ramsey.

Harris, the school's all-time leading rusher, suffered a torn meniscus in his left knee toward the end of last season. He missed the first three games of this season after re-injuring the knee in preseason. He returned for the Sept. 24 game against UMass and played again the following week against Wake Forest before having another setback. He had 31 carries for 135 yards in the two games.

Ramsey was hurt in the opening game against Northwestern and returned to play briefly against UMass.

"After speaking with Montel, Kaleb and our medical personnel, we decided to seek hardship waivers for both student-athletes," coach Frank Spaziani said in a statement. "Our doctors have stated their injuries will preclude both from returning for the remainder of this...

Reports: NBA labor talks resume Sunday

The NBA and players union will meet Sunday night in a last-minute effort to resolve the lockout and avoid canceling regular-season games, a development first reported by The New York Times. Talks broke off last week, with commissioner David Stern indicating that if an agreement wasn't reached by Monday the NBA would cancel the first two weeks of the regular season, which is scheduled to begin Nov. 1.

Talks broke down over the split of the revenue, with the owners offering a 50-50 split of basketball related income (BRI). The players have offered to reduce their share from 57 percent under the old collective bargaining agreement to 53 percent. Reports indicated that the NBA would only meet with the union if it agreed to accept the 50-50 split, a precondition the union rejected. ...

Hernandez, Haynesworth, Dowling active

FOXBORO -- Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez has been cleared to play and will be active for this afternoon's game against the Jets. The second-year tight end had missed the last two games since injuring his left knee against the Chargers in Week 2. Also returning to action after missing the last two weeks is nose tackle Albert Haynesworth. Back issues had sidelined him for games against the Bills and Raiders.

Patriots cornerback Ras-I Dowling tested his sore hip before the game and was cleared to play as was Leigh Bodden. 

The Patriots inactives for Sunday are QB Ryan Mallett, OT Sebastian Vollmer, DL Mike Wright, RB Danny Woodhead, S Josh Barrett, LB Jerod Mayo and WR Julian Edelman.

For the Jets, Pro Bowl center Nick Mangold is active after missing the last two games with a high ankle sprain. They were the first games he's missed in his six seasons in the NFL.

Report: Jets WRs complain about offense

Jets wide receivers Santonio Holmes, Plaxico Burress and Derrick Mason have all gone to coach Rex Ryan to express their displeasure with the state of the New York offense and offensive coordinator Brian Scottenheimer, according to the New York Daily News. According to the story, all three "have individually gone to Rex Ryan in the past few weeks to question" Schottenheimer's system, despite the fact that the Jets have thrown the ball 62 percent of the time heading into Sunday's game against the Patriots.
