Injured Mankins says he's 'day-to-day'

FOXBORO -- Patriots offensive lineman Logan Mankins said Thursday he was "day-to-day" when asked about his injured left leg.

The left guard, regarded as one of the toughest players on the team, was injured on Dec. 24 against the Dolphins, and hasn't played since then. He returned to practice for the first time on Tuesday and has been limited in terms of workload

“It felt good to move around a little bit out there. It’s still day to day. We’ll see. No word yet. One day at a time. We’ll see what happens,” said Mankins.

Asked about Mankins, Patriots coach Bill Belichick said everyone is healing up.

"I think we've seen progress out of everybody [on the injury report]," Belichick said Thursday. "All the guys are out there working and I think each one of them is making progress, and we'll see how things go here after stringing these days together. We'll probably...

Rivers: 'Don't jump off the bridge yet'

WALTHAM -- The Celtics went through their third practice this week, and while the losses to Dallas and Indiana are still fresh in their mind, Celtics coach Doc Rivers said he had a better feeling after watching the tape from the Mavericks game.

"We’re getting closer. I was more encouraged than discouraged," Rivers said. "The rebounding problem we have to fix. But a lot of the other things, defensively we were really good until we gambled. We lost 12 big points on gambles and nine were down the stretch."

Asked if he still thought the Celtics were an elite team, Rivers said, "We have to find that out but I think we are. Obviously we’re 4-5 right now. Our record says we’re not. We say we are. I’m just going to warn you, it’s nine games. Don’t jump off the bridge yet. We haven’t beaten anyone really yet and we have to do that if we’re going to be an elite team."

Report: Padilla to meet with Red Sox

According to the Nicaraguan newspaper El Nuevo Diario, right-handed pitcher Vicente Padilla is slated to meet with the Red Sox Thursday. The 34-year-old has been playing in the Nicaraguan winter league, where he had been reportedly been topping out 95-96 mph with his fastball.

Padilla pitched in nine games for the Dodgers in 2011 (all in relief), briefly taking over the team's closers role, before succumbing to neck problems in June. The previous season he started 16 games for the Dodgers, compiling a 6-5 mark with a 4.07 ERA.

Padilla has told Nicaraguan news outlets throughout the offseason that his hope is to vie for a spot in a team's rotation. Those pitchers currently in the mix for the Red Sox' fifth starter spot are Alfredo Aceves, Aaron Cook, Carlos Silva, Felix Doubront and Andrew Miller.
