Mashup: Jets' LT wants Ryan to tone it down

Running back LaDainian Tomlinson went on Showtime's "Inside the NFL" and talked about how the Jets struggled with internal strife during their 8-8 season. In the interview that aired Wednesday night, LT said the relationship between quarterback Mark Sanchez and receiver Santonio Holmes was especially poor, and it helped create a fractured locker room.

"It is as bad as I've ever been around, honestly," Tomlinson said. "And I've been around some locker rooms and quarterback-receiver situations and what-not. But it was as bad as I've been around."

Tomlinson assessed the blame for the poor chemistry on the guys who built the team: the general manager and coach.

"This is the type of football team that they wanted," said Tomlinson, the NFL's fifth-leading rusher. "Mike Tannenbaum, Rex Ryan are both brash, in-your-face type of style -- say whatever you want, just get it done on the field. And then it...

Rondo: Day-to-day with 'throbbing' wrist

Following a nasty spill with just over two minutes remaining in the third quarter Wednesday night, Rajon Rondo said he is "day-to-day" with a sore right wrist, an injury he said afterward "hurt more" than the grutesque dislocated elbow he suffered against the Heat in the second round of the playoffs last spring. 

"This was different," Rondo said of his fall, precipiated when Toronto's Linas Kleiza knocked him to the ground on a drive to the basket. "This was more painful, honestly. The other one was just more of a shock."

“Honestly, I was laughing right afterwards," added coach Doc Rivers. "I wasn’t [concerned] at first because I thought he was trying to get the flagrant. I thought he was laying down, trying to – you know. And then when he stayed down then I was concerned. But I didn’t know what it was. And then when I saw him grabbing his arm or hand I was...

Pedroia: 'Going to look like Dolph Lundgren'
By: DJ Bean

Red Sox second baseman Dustin Pedroia joined The Big Show Wednesday, discussing the coming season and the improvements made to the Yankees' starting rotation. 

Word emerged Tuesday that left fielder Carl Crawford had undergone arthroscopic surgery on his left wrist, with general manager ben Cherington penciling Crawford to begin hitting "at some pint in spring training." With uncertainty surrounding Crawford's return to the lineup, Pedroia expressed little concern.

"We'll be fine. Guys are going to have to step up," Pedroia said. "I just found out about Carl having surgery yesterday. Guys are going to have to step up. We'll weather the storm until he gets back. I don't know how long his rehab and stuff is going to be. You never know. He might be ready for opening day and stuff, so we're hoping he gets better soon and gets out there."

The Yankees added the likes of Michael Pineda via trade and Hiroki Kuroda...

Easing the pain: C's win, Rondo hurt

Rajon Rondo had a game-high 21 points before injuring his right wrist late in the third quarter while Kevin Garnett added 15 points and seven rebounds as the Celtics snapped their longest losing streak in five seasons with a 96-73 win over the Raptors Wednesday night at TD Garden. Brandon Bass added 13 and Mickael Pietrus had 12 off the bench for the Celtics, who snapped a five-game skid.  

The five-game losing streak was Boston's longest since losing seven straight at the end of the 2006-07 season, the year before Ray Allen and Garnett joined the Celtics. 

The Celtics appeared ready to cruise to an easy win, opening a 29-14 lead after one, with Rondo scoring 13 of Boston's 29 first-quarter points. But the Celtics went ice cold in the second quarter and allowed Toronto back in the game, as the Raptors outscored Boston, 24-15, to cut the Celtics' lead to 44-38 at the break. The Celtics again pulled away in the third quarter, opening...

Rondo injures right wrist, leaves game

With just over two minutes remaining in the third quarter of Wednesday night's game against the Raptors, Rajon Rondo drove to the basket and was fouled hard by Linas Kleiza of the Raptors, landing hard on his right wrist. 

Rondo remained on the floor under the basket for several minutes while team doctor Brian McKeon and trainer Ed Lacerte examined his right hand and wrist very closely. 

Rondo remained in the game to take his two free throws, missing the first and making the second. The Celtics valuable point guard was escorted off the court and into the Celtics locker room for further examination. The team announced early in the fourth quarter that Rondo was suffering from a sore right wrist but "could" return if needed. 

E'Twaun Moore took his place in the lineup. For more, visit the Celtics team page at weei.com/celtics and the ...
