Pats practice: Edelman, Taylor absent

FOXBORO -- Julian Edelman, Fred Taylor and Jarrad Page were all missing from the open portion of Patriots practice on Wednesday as the team began on-field preparations for the San Diego Chargers this Sunday in Southern California.

 

Edelman suffered a head injury in the second half of Sunday's win over Baltimore while Page sustained a calf injury. Neither player returned. Taylor has missed the last two games since injuring a toe during the game against Buffalo on Sept. 26 at Gillette Stadium. The team practiced on the upper practice fields in sweats and shells.

Hale, Farrell finalists for Blue Jays job

According to industry sources, both Red Sox bench coach DeMarlo Hale and pitching coach John Farrell are among the three finalists in line for the Blue Jays' managerial position. According to a source, the other candidate is former major league catcher Sandy Alomar Jr., who has most recently served as the first-base coach for the Cleveland Indians. Farrell first talked to the Jays in the week immediately following the regular season, while Hale met with Toronto the following week. Hale has experience managing in the minor leagues, while neither Farrell or Alomar Jr. have held any managerial jobs. Toronto is expected to finalize its search by next week.

 

CSNNE.com first reported the list of finalists. For more Red Sox coverage, see the team page at weei.com/redsox.

Milbury on D&H: 'Pleasant dilemma' for B's

NESN and NBC hockey analyst Mike Milbury made his weekly appearance on the Dale & Holley show Wednesday. The first topic of conversation was the Bruins' goaltending situation. Tim Thomas has started the last three games, after Tuukka Rask appeared in the season opener.

 

"I'm a little surprised they went with [Thomas] three in a row given the fact that they had so much time off," Milbury said. "Apparently they're going to use Rask either Thursday or Saturday, but that's a long layoff beteween starts. However, as you guys both know, it's a pleasant dilemma to have when your goaltending is too deep. You can't knock what Thomas has done in his three starts. He's been terrific. Rask is going to have to wait his chance again."

 

Asked if the Bruins might be showcasing Thomas for a possible trade, Milbury said, "No, I don't think so, not at this stage. It may be a byproduct of him playing well,...

Meriweather: 'Just want this to go away'

FOXBORO - Patriots safety Brandon Meriweather spoke to the media Wednesday, a day after he was fined $50,000 by the NFL for his helmet-to-helmet hit on Ravens tight end Todd Heap. Meriweather struggled to keep his emotion in check as he issued a statement from his locker. He did not take any questions from the media on the subject.

 

"Once again, I just want to say I'm sorry for the hit, I understand the league is trying to protect the health of all our players," said Meriweather. "To be honest, I just want all of this to go away. I want to focus with the rest of times on the Chargers and really not let this come up again. I'm going to try my best to play within the rules, as my coach has always taught us ... We have always been taught the proper way to hit and focus on that and put it in my game in some way, form or fashion. From here on, I'm focusing on the Chargers and anything else spoken about this I will not comment...

NFL removes photos of illegal hits

The NFL admitted it was a mistake to allow photos of illegal hits from Sunday's games to be sold at NFL.com. Pictures of hits by Patriots cornerback Brandon Meriweather and Steelers linebacker James Harrison, which resulted in fines of $50,000 and $75,000, respectively, were made available by an outside vendor that used an automated process, the league said.

 

"We regret mistake," NFL spokesman Greg Aiello tweeted Wednesday. "Those photos will be removed ASAP & we will ensure no photos of illegal plays r available again."

 

Meanwhile, Harrison indicated he plans to appeal his fine, and he questioned if he could continue playing in the league following the "travesty" of his fine.

 

"The way that things were being explained to me [Tuesday] and the reasoning for it, I don't feel I can continue to play and be effective, and, like I say, not have to worry about...
