McCourty on D&C: Albert 'worked hard'

Patriots cornerback Devin McCourty made his weekly appearance on the Dennis & Callahan show Friday morning as the team prepares for Sunday's showdown with the Jets, attempting to end a two-game losing streak.

"I think guys are preparing hard and ready to go, and just go out there and compete and try to get a win and fix this," McCourty said.

The Albert Haynesworth experiment ended this week with the defensive lineman's release from the Patriots, but McCourty insists that it wasn't because of a lack of effort.

"Things really just didn't work out," McCourty said. "But I think Albert came in, he worked hard when he was on the practice field. He came in and he tried to get better each day. As for everyone else's judgment, I think that's the feeling around here, that he tried to do different things the way that we wanted him to."

Added McCourty: "It's just different situations and different things...

Mashup: Man stabbed at Chargers game

A 25-year-old man was stabbed during a fight in a Qualcomm Stadium parking lot at Thursday night's Raiders-Chargers game in San Diego, according to an Associated Press report.

Players union will consider NBA offer

The National Basketball Players Association will meet with player representatives early next week to consider a revised offer from the NBA after another 11 hours of negotiation on Thursday. "Well, it's not the greatest proposal in the world, but I have an obligation to at least present it to our membership," NBPA executive director Billy Hunter said.

CBS Sports reported that the league offered a 50-50 split of the revenues, but there was minimal movement on the system issues.

"It does not meet us entirely on the system issues," NBPA president Derek Fisher said, who added, "We'd like to continue to negotiate and get a deal but right now is not that time."

If the union accepts the offer, NBA commissioner David Stern said that the league would have a 72-game schedule beginning on Dec. 15 that would push the start of the playoffs back by a week...

Sources: Cuddyer contacted by Red Sox

According to major league sources, the Red Sox held preliminary discussions with the representatives for outfielder Michael Cuddyer earlier this week. The 32-year-old is one of a few free agents contacted by the Sox, who, according to a source, are attempting to determine the market for David Ortiz before committing to any potential acquisitions on the open market.

The Boston Herald has also reported that the Red Sox have called on Grady Sizemore as an other potential free agent outfield option.

While the Twins -- the only organization Cuddyer has known during his professional career -- have publicly stated that they hope to bring the right-handed hitter, the Phillies have also been aggressive in the pursuit of Cuddyer, spent Tuesday in Philadephia talking to Phils' general manager Ruben Amaro and other members of National League East champs.

Cuddyer played in 139 games in 2011 after totaling 157 and 153 games played in the previous two...

Julien: Ference left with lower-body injury
By: DJ Bean

Bruins coach Claude Julien said after Thursday's 6-3 win over the Oilers that defenseman Andrew Ference, who left the game in the second period, has a lower-body injury. 

"Only a lower-body injury right now, and I don’t know the severity of it, so that’s all I can give you," Julien said after the game.

Ference played only two shifts in the second period and totaled 9:22 of icetime on the night.
