As expected, on Saturday night the Patriots downgraded three players to out for Sunday's game against the Bears in Chicago — cornerback Jonathan Wilhite, as well as defensive linemen Myron Pryor and Mike Wright. All three have been hampered by injury issues over the last few weeks, with Wilhite dealing with a hip problem, Pryor with a back issue and Wright with a concussion he suffered late last month against the Colts.

The Bruins announced on Saturday that they have traded forward Marco Sturm to the Kings in exchange for future considerations. Sturm, who carries a salary cap hit and is nearing a return from a torn ACL and MCL, must pass a physical with Los Angeles.
General manager Peter Chiarelli said following the trade that the Bruins will actually receive nothing in the deal. Asked for clarification, Chiarelli said that "whenever you see 'future considerations,' it usually means 'nothing.'"
Sturm reportedly was nearly traded to the Kings last week and had to waive his no-trade clause to facilitate the deal. The 32-year-old had 106 goals for the Bruins over parts of four seasons with the club after being acquired in the 2005 Joe Thornton trade.
With the trade, the Bruins will not need to make further moves to settle their salary cap situation.
Bruins rookie forward Tyler Seguin is out for Saturday night's game vs. the Flyers with flu-like symptoms. Seguin skated with the scratches on Thursday morning, and Danile Paille is in the lineup in place of the second overall pick.
Seguin has played in all 27 of the Bruins' games thus far, totaling five goals and five assists. For more on the Bruins, visit their team page at weei.com/bruins.
