Mashup: Rob Ryan addresses Rex' foot-fetish

Jets coach Rex Ryan and his twin brother Rob, the defensive coordinator for the Cowboys, face off against each other when their teams open the season Sunday night in New Jersey. On Monday, Rob was asked about the foot-fetish video of his brother that surfaced in December, which Rex never directly commented on.

"Aw, hell, who cares?" Rob told reporters in the Cowboys locker room. "Believe me, everybody has whatever screwed-up thing going on. I don't care. I'm sure you do, and everybody else that points fingers. Who cares? Everybody has a life off the field. Who gives a crap? I'm sure I'm worse than he is. So, big deal."

Rob eventually did let down his guard a little, acknowledging about his brother: "He is a little freaky, I guess. Hell, I don't know. I like everything about my wife. She's got great feet, too. She's got everything nice. What the hell."

DBC: Webb Simpson wins in playoff

NORTON -- Webb Simpson beat Chez Reavie on the second playoff Monday to win the 2011 Deutsche Bank Championship at TPC Boston. Simpson birdied the 18th hole in regulation as well as in the playoff and then birdied the 17th (the second playoff hole) to earn the victory. Both golfers finished the tournament at 15-under par.

Coming into the day, Bubba Watson held a one-stroke lead over five golfers at 10-under par, but he struggled, shooting a 3-over par 74 to finish tied for 16th. Jason Day, who played in the final group with Watson, shot a 3-under par 68 to finish in a tie for third. Brandt Snedeker and world No. 1 Luke Donald also finished in third.

Phil Mickelson closed the tournament with a 2-under 69 to finish tied for 10th, which was impressive considering he made the cut on the number. Worcester-born Scott Stallings shot a final found even-par 71 to finish at 2-under and tied for 52nd.

Beckett to return to Boston, unsure of injury

TORONTO -- Josh Beckett will return to Boston Tuesday to have his right ankle examined after leaving the Red Sox' 1-0, 11-inning loss to the Blue Jays in the fourth inning due to what was classified as a sprained ankle.

Beckett explained after the game that he didn't feel any problems with the ankle until his second-to-last pitch, and was unsure how the ailment came about. The starter was pulled from the game with two outs in the fourth inning and Brett Lawrie at bat after stiffening up on his 58th, and final, pitch of the afternoon.

"It's always concerning. That's my power leg," Beckett said. "The way I pitch I don't think I can cut my leg off, I don't think I could pitch."

The starter later added, "I've never had anything like this. I could wake up tomorrow and feel like playing basketball. We'll just see."

Beckett said that he fell in the bullpen trying to take a shirt off, although he was unsure if...

Lawrie walkoff sinks Sox in Toronto
By: DJ Bean

Rookie Brett Lawrie hit a walk-off homer off Dan Wheeler in the bottom of the 11th Monday to give the Blue Jays a 1-0 win over the Red Sox in Toronto. Though the Sox lost the game, the scoreboard may not have indicated the biggest loss on the day for the team.

Starting pitcher Josh Beckett had an early exit due to injury, as he left the game with a sprained right ankle after racking up six strikeouts over 3 2/3 innings of shutout ball. He was replaced by Alfredo Aceves, who also went 3 2/3 innings without allowing a run. 

Wheeler came in to start the 11th after a nerve-racking, 27-pitch inning from Jonathan Papelbon. The closer loaded the bases in a 10th inning in which he also had a botched pickoff attempt, but a pair of three-pitch strikeouts bailed him out, including three straight fastballs to Adam Lind with the bags full and two down. 

The Red Sox stranded seven runners in scoring position on the day, including a double from...
