Sources: Suisham, Stover not headed to NE

FOXBORO — With reports indicating that Stephen Gostkowski could miss a couple of weeks because of a thigh injury he suffered in Sunday's loss to the Browns, the Patriots could be in the market for a kicker.

However, a league source has indicated that Shaun Suisham — who has been linked to New England as a possible replacement for Gostkowski, and had a workout with the Patriots earlier this season — is on the way to Detroit Monday for a workout with the Lions, who also had an injury at the kicker position this past weekend.

In addition, another league source indicates that veteran kicker Matt Stover — who has a longtime relationship with Patriots coach Bill Belichick that dates back to their days together in Cleveland in the early 1990s — has yet to receive a call from the Patriots as of Monday afternoon.

After Gostkowski went down on Sunday, wide receiver Wes Welker was used as the...

Branch promises 'totally different team'

FOXBORO — Patriots wide receiver Deion Branch promises a "totally different team" on Sunday against the Steelers than the one that struggled in an ugly 34-14 loss to the Browns in Cleveland on Sunday.

"It's going to be a different team, I'm going to tell you that right now," Branch said on Monday afternoon. "I'll promise you all that. It started today. We're expecting a totally different team."

In the wake of Sunday's loss, both quarterback Tom Brady and defensive lineman Vince Wilfork blamed a bad week of practice. It was a point echoed by Branch on Monday afternoon.

"It showed up," Branch said of how the bad week of practice extended to the field on Sunday. "Whatever you do in practice is going to show up in the game [and] it showed up in the game. We didn't practice good on Wednesday, Thursday had an OK practice, and then Friday. ... How do you expect to play a...

PawSox manager Lovullo joins Blue Jays

Torey Lovullo, who managed the Red Sox' Triple-A affiliate in 2010, will join the staff of Blue Jays manager John Farrell to serve as a first base coach in 2011. Lovullo and Farrell have a lengthy history, as Lovullo managed in the Indians organization for eight years, including four when Farrell was the head of the Cleveland farm system.

 

Lovullo is widely viewed as an excellent candidate for a future big league managing gig. The PawSox went 66-78 under his watch this year, but several players -- Felix Doubront, Ryan Kalish, Lars Anderson and Yamaico Navarro -- made their big league debuts.

Daubach to manage Nats' Single A team

Former Red Sox first baseman Brian Daubach has been hired by the Washington Nationals to manage their Single-A team, the Hagerstown Suns, in the Single-A South Atlantic League, the same league as the Red Sox' affiliate Greenville Drive. Daubach managed the Pittsfield Colonials of the independent Canadian-American Association of Professional Baseball last season, having previously served as the manager for the American Defenders.

Meriweather on D&H: Nobody showed up

Patriots safety Brandon Meriweather made his weekly appearance on the Dale & Holley show on Monday, and he was blunt in answering why the team lost to the Browns on Sunday. "They came to play. We didn't. There's nothing else you can say," Meriweather said. "They executed in all three phases of the game, we didn't."

 

Meriweather echoed his teammates' sentiment in saying the team had a bad week of practice, which influenced Sunday's outcome. "It was a bad week of practice all the way around," Meriweather said, before emphasizing that it is not a valid excuse. "I do think that you have to be a professional about it and know that that's what you get paid to do, and that's your job. And I don't know, nobody on our team came to do that."

 

Meriweather said that the team knows when practice is sluggish even without the coaches screaming. "You...
