Report: Season over for Faulk

FOXBORO -- Kevin Faulk is expected to be placed on season-ending injured reserve after tearing the ACL in his knee on Sunday afternoon, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. 

 

Faulk suffered the injured when he was pushed out of bounds by Drew Coleman in the fourth quarter of Sunday's 28-14 loss to the Jets and did not return. 

 

An announcement is expected from head coach Bill Belichick shortly during his weekly Wednesday media briefing at Gillette Stadium. 

 

Faulk has been the most versatile back for the Patriots since the team began its run in 2001, serving as Tom Brady's go-to back on third down.

Good, bad and very ugly: O's rout Sox

The Orioles capitalized on a two-out error by Marco Scutaro in the sixth inning to tie the game and then used a three-run homer by Ty Wigginton to pull away in a 9-1 rout over the Red Sox Tuesday night at Fenway Park. 

 

The Red Sox could not take advantage of a strong start by Clay Buchholz, who was robbed of his 17th win on the Scutaro error and when Daniel Nava struck out looking with runners on second and third in the sixth. Buchholz allowed just the one unearned run and four hits over six innings, walking three and fanning five. 

 

The top five batters in the Red Sox order went a combined 2-for-21. Making matters worse, Jonathan Papelbon, making his first appearance since Sept. 14 at Seattle, was shelled for four runs on five hits and watched his ERA balloon to a season-high 3.92.

Ellsbury: 'I'll come back stronger'

Red Sox outfielder Jacoby Ellsbury talked to Ian Browne of mlb.com about the similarities between his diagnosis with non-displaced rib fractures and the injury suffered by Rangers outfielder Josh Hamilton. Hamilton has been out since running into a wall in Minnesota on Sept. 4. While initial X-rays and an MRI did not reveal a fracture, further tests on Tuesday revealed that the MVP candidate has two rib fractures, and that he suffered a third rib fracture that has now healed.

 

Ellsbury told the website that he planned to talk to Hamilton about his own experience trying to return from five non-displaced fractures of his rib cage, injuries that virtually...

Chiarelli: Savard's status unchanged
By: DJ Bean

Bruins general manager Peter Chiarelli issued the following statement today regarding Marc Savard:

 

"As I stated on Friday, Marc Savard is suffering from symptoms related to post-concussion syndrome. He is under the care of our doctors. Any reports that suggest that there are any other issues regarding Marc, or him not playing for the Bruins this season, are completely inaccurate.

 

"Also, as I have previously stated, when there is a change in Marc's status, I will issue an update."

 

Earlier Tuesday, a source has told ESPNBoston's Joe McDonald that Savard could miss the upcoming season with post-concussion syndrome. Savard has been held out of training camp thus far due to PCS symptoms, and according to the report, a source within the organization said that Savard's case is "not a good situation."

Reports: Two Jets in car with Edwards

Braylon Edwards was not alone in his car when he was pulled over Tuesday morning in Manhattan and later arrested for driving while intoxicated.

 

Several reports have indicated that fellow Jets D'Brickashaw Ferguson and Vernon Gholston were also in Edwards' Range Rover at 4:47 a.m. Tuesday when officers pulled the car over. The officers detected a strong smell of alcohol and noticed that Edwards had bloodshot eyes, according to police reports.

 

Edwards then underwent the breathalyzer exam, blowing a .16 reading (twice the legal limit), and was arrested.

 

Edwards was released on his own recognizance Tuesday afternoon without bail. His next court appearance is scheduled for Nov. 9.
