Perfect practice attendance for Pats

FOXBORO -- The Patriots had everyone on their 53-man roster at practice for the second straight day on Friday as the team worked out in shorts and shells on the main Gillette Stadium field. 

It was the second straight day back at practice for offensive lineman Dan Connolly, who was listed as limited on Thursday with a head injury. Connolly suffered the injury while serving as fullback on Stevan Ridley's one-yard TD run on Sunday in Tennessee. 

Shane Vereen returned to practice this week and was again on the field as he attempts to return to action after a foot injury sidelined him during the preseason game on Aug. 24 at Tampa Bay. Vereen and Connolly were among the seven Patriots listed as limited at full pads practice on Thursday. 

The Patriots open the home portion of their regular season schedule on Sunday against the Cardinals at 1 p.m. at Gillette Stadium. For more, visit the Patriots team page at...

Lombardi on D&C: 'Kolb gets rattled quickly'

NFL Network analyst Mike Lombardi joined Dennis & Callahan on Friday morning to preview Sunday's Patriots-Cardinals game and discuss news from around the league.

Lombardi said the Patriots need to stay away from turnovers and sloppy play against an Arizona team that has some talent on defense.

"The one thing this Cardinal team will do is they'll play hard for 60 minutes. They play to the whistle," Lombardi said. "And this defense, now, don't underestimate this defense. They've got Pro Bowlers on every single level of this defense, from Darnell Dockett, Calais Campbell's an outstanding defensive lineman. They're different. They play a Pittsburgh style of defense, but they're built differently than Pittsburgh's built. They basically are built strong down the middle, so Campbell, Dockett is very good, [Daryl] Washington is an outstanding inside linebacker, and then these two safeties -- Kerry Rhodes isn't a dominant player, but...

Mashup: Manny being spiritual?

In Friday's Morning Mashup, we have a hilarious video of a radio host ranting about Miami Univeristy's foobtall team, more replacement ref analysis, and an interesting article in the USA Today catching up with Manny Ramirez.

Ramirez, of course, had an ignominious departure from the game of baseball. PED use has undoubtedly stained the career of one of the greatest natural (weird word to use here, but you know what I mean) hitters in MLB history. Couple that with an arrest involving alleged domestic violence, and a new connotation was given to the phrase, "Manny being Manny." These days, Ramirez has turned to God to reconcile his life.

Just about every remark Ramirez made had a reference to God, the Bible or the evangelical faith he embraced late last year, after he was charged with misdemeanor domestic violence stemming from an incident with his wife, Juliana. The charge was dropped when she refused to cooperate with the investigation...

More of nothing: Sox shut out by Yanks

The Red Sox offense, a juggernaut for so much of the last 10 years, has been reduced to perhaps its most enfeebled state this century. On a night when Dustin Pedroia was away from the team after the birth of his second child, a stripped-down Sox lineup was overmatched by Yankees starter Phil Hughes in a 2-0 defeat. 

The Sox now have scored one or fewer runs 24 times this year, tied for the most by the team since 2000. With 18 games remaining, it seems likely that the team will set a new standard for such displays of offensive shortcomings. 

Felix Doubront, despite command woes (five walks), permitted just four hits (one double, three singles) in his 6 1/3 innings. He was charged with two runs, the first of which scored when he loaded the bases with no outs in the fourth but limited the damage to a sac fly. The second came after he left the game with two on and one out in the seventh, when Derek Jeter fisted an RBI single to center off of...

PawSox finish championship sweep

The Triple-A Pawtucket Red Sox completed a three-game sweep against the Charlotte Knights (the Triple-A affiliate of the White Sox) with a 4-1 road win on Thursday to claim the team's first Governor's Cup Finals victory since 1984. 

Right-hander Nelson Figueroa allowed one run in six innings for the PawSox, concluding a series in which the team's starters permitted just three runs in 19 frames (1.42 ERA). A trio of PawSox relievers had shutout innings, with Will Inman, Jose De La Torre and Josh Fields all delivering zeros to wrap up the victory. 

The PawSox scored a pair of runs in both the second and seventh innings, with Mike Rivera and Juan Carlos Linares delivering RBI singles and Jeremy Hazelbaker collecting an RBI triple. Linares is 8-for-24 (.333) with a .429 OBP, .667 slugging mark and a team-high six runs batted in during the postseason.

Now, the PawSox will advance to the Triple-A National Championship Game in Durham (N.C...
