Cameron to DL, Ells 'still feels something'
By: DJ Bean

The Red Sox have placed outfielder Mike Cameron on the disabled list and recalled Daniel Nava. Cameron had missed two straight games and was not in Monday's lineup. Nava is currently in Boston with the team for the first game of a four-game set with the Indians but will not start barring an update of the lineup. Eric Patterson and Ryan Kalish are manning center and left field, respectively.

 

Cameron, who returned from the DL in late May with an abdomen injury, has been in and out of the lineup this season as he continues to deal with the lingering ailment. He has played in 48 games this season. 

 

The Red Sox are currently taking a wait-and-see approach regarding whether to proceed with surgery, which would end Cameron's season. The outfielder's preference remains to play if possible, but time will tell. Manager Terry Francona told reporters prior to Monday's game that the plan is to "let him rest, get some...

Kraft on Welker: 'His DNA is different'

FOXBORO -- Count Patriots owner Robert Kraft among those amazed with the return of wideout Wes Welker to the practice field just over seven months after a serious left knee injury that required reconstructive surgery. Kraft was on hand Monday morning for the first practice prior to Monday night's scrimmage for season ticket holders inside Gillette Stadium. 

 

"You see Welker out there today, he's really unbelievable," said Kraft, who related with the height of the 5-9 Welker. "For any guy our size, for all of America, what he represents is so special. His DNA is different because he can take those hits, do things other people just can't do. And his attitude, what a great person. We're so lucky to have him here." 

 

Kraft also showed some love for another part of the receiving corps, which has been overhauled - the tight ends. In addition to 32-year-old Alge Crumpler, rookies Aaron Hernandez and...

Kraft anticipates 'more birthdays' with Brady

FOXBORO -- Patriots owner Robert Kraft, speaking after a press conference on solar power generation at Patriot Place in Foxboro, sounded another optimistic note that he believes the team can sign iconic quarterback Tom Brady to a long-term contract. Kraft walked off the practice field with Brady on Monday morning and was asked if he spoke to the quarterback about his birthday plans for Tuesday.

 

"It's actually unbelievable," Kraft said of his quarterback who turns 33 on Tuesday. "He came here when he was 22 and now he's going to be 33. He's a great cook. He has something very special planned. We look forward to celebrating many more birthdays with him right here in Foxboro."

 

Congressman Barney Frank was also in attendance for the press conference outside CBS Scene looking out on Gillette Stadium. He joked that he hopes Brady can get a new contract that will bring more tax revenue into the...
