Ryan has 'heated' conversation with Dungy

Jets coach Rex Ryan said he had a "heated" phone conversation with former Colts coach and current NBC NFL analyst Tony Dungy about Ryan's foul language during the HBO training camp documentary "Hard Knocks." Dungy, a devout Christian, criticized Ryan's frequent use of obscenities and suggested the commissioner step in and talk to the fiery coach.

 

Ryan called Dungy and left a message on Wednesday. On Thursday, the two men shared their feelings directly with each other.

 

"It was definitely heated," Ryan said with a smile. "We just talked man-to-man. It was good."

 

Added Ryan: "I wanted him to know how I felt. We talked man-to-man. He told me his position and I definitely told him my position. So, it was good."

Pedroia: Foot 'feels terrible'

Red Sox second baseman Dustin Pedroia has been pulled from the starting lineup on Thursday due to a sore left foot. Jed Lowrie will replace him, playing second base and hitting second in the batting order.

 

Pedroia returned Tuesday from a broken bone in his left foot suffered in late June. His rehab consisted of just two games on Saturday and Sunday for Triple-A Pawtucket. Pedroia was told to expect soreness upon his return to the lineup, and following Wednesday night's game, he was sleepless due to discomfort in the appendage, at the site of the fracture. He showed up at Fenway Park on Thursday and took batting practice, but the pain in his foot as he ran the bases convinced the Sox to give the second baseman the night off.

 

“It’s not fully healed and I’m going to have days where it feels terrible,” Pedroia said. “It’s kind of impossible to break your foot in the area where I broke it...

Also, Buster surmises that the Red Sox front office has to be a little uneasy with the fact that their best offensive player, David Ortiz, is in this LATE 30's.
