Pats practice: Vollmer misses 3rd straight

FOXBORO -- In a likely sign that he won't be available for Monday night's season opener in Miami, starting right tackle Sebastian Vollmer missed his third straight practice on Friday as the Patriots worked out in shorts and shells on the lower grass field outside Gillette Stadium. The team had practiced in full pads the previous two days. 

The team plays on natural grass on Monday night at Sun Life Stadium in South Florida. For the second straight day, Vollmer - listed Thursday with a back injury - was the only Patriots player not in attendance for the beginning of practice.

By: DJ Bean

WILMINGTON -- Bruins forward Nathan Horton and goaltender Tuukka Rask participated in the Bruins' second veterans practice of the preseason on Friday, clearing up concerns regarding ailments with which the two had dealt.

J. Kraft: Albert understands expectations

Patriots president Jonathan Kraft was a guest of the Dennis & Callahan show Friday morning. In a wide-ranging interview, he talked about his father's role in ending the NFL lockout, why he wants Peyton Manning to return, the 10th anniversary of 9/11 and much more.

The Patriots' signing of controversial defensive lineman Albert Haynesworth was seen by some as a departure from the team's philosophy of avoiding players with checkered pasts. Kraft explained the team's view.

"Before Albert was signed to the team, we sat down and talked to him," Kraft said. "It was pretty clear that Albert, like some other players who maybe have had a similar spotlight shone on them when they've signed here -- like Randy [Moss] or Corey [Dillon] or maybe even Bryan Cox -- I think when you sit and talk to Albert, what you hear is an intense frustration of a man.

"Football's a very hard game to play. When you're intelligent -- and Albert's...

Mashup: Ex-Sox OF Everett arrested again

Former Red Sox outfielder Carl Everett was arrested last week on family violence charges in Texas, the latest run-in with the law for the controversial baseball player. The 40-year-old, who was arrested in April for allegedly pointing a gun at his wife's head, was taken into custody last Friday morning at the home he shares with his wife in Colleyville, Texas. He was charged with assaulting and injuring a family member.

Also in the news, Jets coach Rex Ryan clarified comments that made it sound like he was trying to intimidate Cowboys fans planning to attend Sunday night's game at the Meadowlands. "If somebody else comes to enjoy a game, that's fine. I'm not calling for our guys to do anything," he said. "The safety of every fan is important to everybody in this organization, including me. But would I prefer not to see another color jersey, another team's jersey? Absolutely. I would love to see our stadium just in our color."
