Report: Suh not fined for swipe at Mankins

According to Mike Freeman of CBSSports.com, the NFL will not fine Lions defensive tackle defensive lineman Ndamukong Suh for his role in an altercation with Patriots guard Logan Mankins in Saturday's preseason game.

Suh appeared to take a swing at Mankins -- who had just been flagged for a 15-yard penalty for pulling the face mask of defensive end Lawrence Jackson -- in the second quarter of the game. No penalty was called on Suh, who was fined earlier this preseason for a hit on Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton and twice last year for hits on Bears quarterback Jay Cutler and Jake Delhomme of the Browns.

King on M&M: Onus on Ochocinco

Sports Illustrated's Peter King made his weekly appearance on the Mut & Merloni show Friday to talk about the Patriots and other NFL news.

Albert Haynesworth made his first appearance in a Patriots uniform Thursday night against the Giants, making two tackles as he works his way back into shape. King had both criticism and praise for the controversial defensive lineman.

"It's just a good example of who the guy is that he doesn't show up ready to go when he's making whatever it is, 5 million bucks this year. It's one of the reasons why the Redskins wanted to get rid of him," King said. "Having said that, I said in the magazine this week that I thought he'd be the Comeback Player of the Year. Because I believe if [Bill] Belichick can't get it out of him, nobody can. And there is definitely something very good to be gotten. I still think Haynesworth is going to be a positive for the Patriots."

Sources: Patriots release Farnham

With the league mandating that all teams must cut to 53 by Saturday at 4 p.m., the Patriots have already started making moves. According to league sources, three players — wide receiver Buddy Farnham, running back Richard Medlin and offensive lineman Jonathan Compas — have all been informed of their release.

Farnham, a Massachusetts native, played both offense and defense for the Patriots over the course of the preseason, finishing with one interception as a safety as well as six catches for 48 yards as a wide receiver. Medlin showed some versatility out of the backfield, running the ball 20 times for 66 yards and adding six catches for 39 yards. Compas is a 25-year-old who has worked primarily as an interior offensive lineman.

Byers on D&C: Belak death 'sad coincidence'

Former Bruins enforcer Lyndon Byers, now a morning co-host at WAAF, joined sister station WEEI Friday morning for a discussion about problems with brain damage caused by repeated hits to the head in hockey.

Wade Belak died this week -- reportedly a suicide -- and became the third NHL enforcer of playing age to die in the last four months, joining Rick Rypien and Derek Boogaard.

Byers said he's not treating Belak's case the same as the previous two.

"Sad coincidence," Byers said. "I expected a knee-jerk reaction. It's very, very sad that Wade Belak hung himself. My thoughts and prayers go out to him and his family. I think it's completely separate from Rypien and [Boogaard]. To be honest, I think all three deaths are completely separate.

"The Boogaard incident, he was doing drugs with his brother and overdosed. His brother might be going to jail for that. Rick Rypien dealt with depression. Millions of Americans --...

Nowinski on D&C: NHL has CTE problem

Continuing a discussion about this week's death of Wade Belak, the third NHL enforcer of playing age to die in the past four months, concussion expert Chris Nowinski joined the Dennis & Callahan show Friday morning.

Belak's death -- reportedly a suicide -- followed those of Derek Boogaard (accidental drug overdose) and Rick Rypien (suicide), and it has raised attention to the dangers of hits to the head.

"I think the NHL is being forced to realize that the problem of CTE [chronic traumatic encephalopathy] absolutely exists among hockey players," said Nowinski, a Harvard alumnus and former professional wrestler who works at Boston's Sports Legacy Institute, which is partnered with Boston University's Center for the Study of Traumatic Encephalopathy.

"We have not had the same dialog with the NHL that we have had with the NFL," he added. "I'm hoping we get that dialog so they can appreciate it. As you can assume,...
