Tennant inactive, Spiller, Jackson active

ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. -- Newly-signed offensive lineman Matt Tennant was the seventh and final inactive player declared by the Patriots for Sunday's game against the Bills in Western New York. The 25-year-old Tennant was signed on Saturday after the Patriots left starting left guard Logan Mankins at home with a hip injury. 

Tennant is the only healthy Patriots player inactive for the game as Aaron Hernandez (ankle), Justin Francis (ankle), Brandon Deaderick (ankle), Alfonzo Dennard (hamstring), Mankins (hip) and Julian Edelman (left hand) were all ruled out between Friday and Saturday. 

For the Bills, both running backs Fred Jackson (knee) and C.J. Spiller (shoulder) are active and expected to play. Jackson hasn't played since Week 1 against the Jets while Spiller sprained a joint in his right shoulder last Sunday. Spiller was initially ruled out of the game by coach Chan Gailey but returned to practice on Thursday and was cleared to play by...

Ellsbury: 'Numbers will be there' with ABs

Red Sox outfielder Jacoby Ellsbury returned to the lineup on Saturday night after having been out since Sept. 20 due to an unspecified injury. Ellsbury, who went 1-for-4 with two strikeouts and a single, declined to offer any insight into what had sidelined him for the stretch.

"Nothing real exciting to report on. ... Just something that I needed to sit out a few days and be back ready to go the rest of this stretch for the last four games," he said. "It's just good to be back." 

Ellsbury said that the injury "wasn't a big deal" and that he and the team's medical staff knew that he would play again before the end of the season. 

In 71 games this year, Ellsbury is hitting .277 with a .320 OBP, .381 slugging mark and .701 OPS, all of those marks representing career lows for any season in which he had at least 100 plate appearances. After last season's 30/30 performance earned him MVP runner-up status,...

Nearly 90: Sox, Doubront fall short vs. O's

BALTIMORE -- Though Felix Doubront delivered a strong punctuation mark to his first full season in a big league rotation, a solo homer in the bottom of the seventh inning by rookie Manny Machado against the Red Sox left-hander allowed the Orioles to claim a 4-3 victory. 

Doubront gave up a two-run homer to Chris Davis as well as Machado's solo homer in the seventh, saddling the left-hander with the loss on a night when he proved dominant at times. Doubront logged seven innings and permitted four runs (three earned) while striking out 10 and walking just one.

Doubront finished the year with four straight quality starts, including back-to-back seven-inning outings in which he reached double digits in strikeouts. He ended the year with 167 strikeouts in 161 innings, becoming the first Red Sox pitcher ever to strike out more than a batter an inning in a season at age 24 or younger (minimum 150 innings). 

However, Doubront took the loss...
