Brady: 'Just been thinking about the Jets'

FOXBORO -- Echoing what he said Monday during his appearance on Dennis & Callahan on WEEI, Tom Brady said there's "only one Rob Gronkowski" and the Patriots will have to make due. But on Tuesday, during his weekly press conference prior to the Jets Thursday night, Brady added that he hasn't spent any time worrying about the loss of his No. 1 target on the field.

"Honestly I've just been thinking about the Jets," Brady said. "I haven't been thinking about when he's coming back. He's not playing this week, so we've got to go out there and win without him. And there's a lot of guys that are capable of making plays for us, and that's where my attention is focused, on the guys that are going to try to help us win this game."

Brady said he'll be looking at Visanthe Shiancoe, Michael Hoomanawanui and Daniel Fells to pick up the slack. He did not mention Aaron Hernandez as a possibility. Hernandez has missed the last three...

Sox reportedly close to signing A's OF Gomes

The Red Sox are closing in a two-year deal with free agent outfielder Jonny Gomes, according to a tweet from Scott Lauber of the Boston Herald. CSNNE's Sean McAdam earlier reported that the Sox had limited their outfield search to Gomes and Cody Ross.

The Orioles also are reported to have interest in Gomes.

Gomes, who turns 32 Thursday, played for the A's last season after stints with the Nationals (2011), Reds (2009-11) and Rays (2003-08).

A 6-foot-1 225-pounder who bats from the right side, Gomes hit .262/.377/.491 with 18 home runs, 47 RBIs and 44 walks in 99 games last season, playing all three outfield positions plus DH.

In his 10-year, Gomes is hitting .244/.334/.455...

Ed Reed suspension rescinded, fined $50K

The NFL has rescinded the one-game suspension of Ravens safety Ed Reed for repeated head shots on tackles during games. Instead, the league has decided to fine him $50,000 and allow him to play this weekend against San Diego. 

Ted Cottrell, the hearing officer for Reed's NFL appeal, wrote a response to Reed in making the decision on Tuesday, one day after the suspension was announced by the league. 

"I have determined that your actions were egregious and warrant significant discipline. However, I do not believe your actions were so egregious as to subject you to one-game suspension without pay," Cottrell wrote. 

Reed's discipline was the result of another blow to the head, this time on Steelers receiver Emmanuel Sanders. Reed delivered a vicious hit to the head of Deion Branch during the Patriots-Ravens game on Sept. 23 in Baltimore.

Rex: Belichick PAT criticism 'ridiculous'

FOXBORO -- Jets coach Rex Ryan scoffed at the criticism of Bill Belichick regarding the fact that the Patriots had Rob Gronkowski on the field in the waning moments of Sunday’s 59-24 win over the Colts.

The tight end reportedly suffered a broken arm while blocking on an extra-point attempt and is expected be on the shelf 4-8 weeks. As a result, Belichick has come under fire for his decision to have such a valuable position player on the field when the game was fundamentally out of reach. But on a conference call with the New England media on Tuesday afternoon, Ryan called the criticism “absolutely ridiculous.”

“It was on an extra point -- he’s probably done it a zillion times. He’s probably done it a hundred times this year for the simple fact of how many points they score. But you never see that,” Ryan said. “Every single team in the league -- we have D’Brickashaw Ferguson...

Chatham: Can't question Gronk PAT injury

Former Patriots linebacker Matt Chatham joined Mut & Merloni on Tuesday to talk about the Rob Gronkowski injury situation and the Patriots' upcoming game against the Jets.

Chatham, who was a part of the Patriots' three Super Bowl-winning teams of the early 2000s, is in the camp of people with no issue with Gronkowski being on the field for a PAT in the closing minutes of Sunday's blowout win over the Colts.

"I've never in my life heard of anyone getting injured on an extra-point play. Ever," Chatham said. "I mean, it just doesn't happen. … You're as likely to get hurt on a special teams play as you are to get caught in an avalanche in Massachusetts. It's just not likely. So, if you want to sort of present this as though there were some sort of risk that they should have mitigated, well, what risk is there on an extra point? Historically speaking, college football, junior college level, I don't care at what level, you're at...
