Report: Brady injury by Tuck not 'major'

According to the Boston Herald, the sack of Tom Brady by Justin Tuck in the third quarter of the Super Bowl aggravated a pre-existing left shoulder sprain. However, the Herald reports that the injury was not considered major.

From the report:

Brady landed hard on his left shoulder, aggravating the sprain from earlier in the season. The key word is “sprain.” This is the same injury that forced him to miss a practice during the AFC Championship week, an ailment he needed to manage. The aggravation didn’t lead to major injury, though, and Brady did not need to come out of the game for treatment. It also is not believed to be the kind of injury that will need to be dealt with much in the offseason.

Sabres destroy Bruins in Buffalo
By: DJ Bean

BUFFALO -- Amidst weeks of up-and-down hockey, the Bruins suffered perhaps their ugliest loss of the season, getting blanked by the Sabres, 6-0, Wednesday at First Niagara Center. 

Tuukka Rask was chased after allowing three goals on the first 10 shots he faced, and the Sabres got a two-goal performance from captain Jason Pominville. Ryan Miller's shutout marked the second time in the last four games that the B's have been kept scoreless.

The Sabres got on the board 6:23 into the first period, when a wrist shot fired by Christian Ehrhoff from the point went off Gregory Campbell's stick and past Rask. After a Milan Lucic goal was disallowed on a controversial call from referee Rob Martell, the Sabres took a 2-0 lead on Pominville's first of the night. Tyler Ennis made it 3-0 1:52 into the second period, which ended Rask's night early. While Tim Thomas stopped the bleeding for a bit, Patrick Kaleta made it 4-0 late in the period. Pominville...

Daniels leads BC to upset of Florida State

Freshman point guard Jordan Daniels scored 21 points, including the clinching free throw with 3.1 seconds remaining, as Boston College knocked off 15th-ranked Florida State, 64-60, Wednesday night at Conte Forum.

Matt Humphrey added 15 points, Ryan Anderson netted 14 and Lonnie Anderson scored 12 for BC, which improved to 8-16 overall and 3-7 in ACC play.

Michael Snaer scored 16 points for Florida State (16-7, 7-2), which began the night tied for first in the ACC with North Carolina.

The Eagles fell behind by 13 points early but fought back to take a one-point lead at the half, 34-33. BC opened up an eight-point lead with 8:28 remaining after a layup by Dennis Clifford made it 55-47. Florida State twice closed to within three points late, including with six seconds left after a Snaer 3-pointer, but Daniels hit 1-of-2 free throws with three seconds remaining to put the game away.

BC next plays at Virginia Tech on Sunday.

Rodney: Gronkowski 'disrespected himself'

Former Patriots safety Rodney Harrison hammered Rob Gronkowski on Wednesday, saying the young tight end “disrespected himself” by taking off his shirt and dancing at a team party after New England’s Super Bowl loss to the Giants.

“I guarantee you this, if Willie McGinest, Tedy Bruschi, Larry Izzo, Richard Seymour or myself had been at that party, [Gronkowski] probably would have got his head rung,” Harrison told ESPN Chicago Radio 1000. “There’s no reason for that to happen.

“When we lost the Super Bowl, any of my Super Bowl losses, I was so devastated the last thing I ever wanted to do was party, let alone dance or take off your shirt,” he said. “It’s just immaturity. It’s not right. He made a mistake and I’m sure he feels absolutely stupid about it at this point. There’s a time and place for everything.”

Harrison acknowledged he hadn...

Ortiz arb hearing slated for Monday

According to an industry source, the arbitration hearing for David Ortiz and the Red Sox is scheduled Monday. The Red Sox offered their longtime slugger a $12.65 million salary for 2012, while the DH requested a $16.5 million salary. The two sides can settle at any time prior to a hearing (indeed, settlements have been known to occur in the actual hearing room).

If Ortiz and the Sox do end up going to a hearing, however, it would represent the first time in a decade that the Sox had ended up in an arbitration hearing. Here is a primer on what a hearing would mean for Ortiz and the Red Sox.
