Stomach bug hits Light, Pats personnel

INDIANAPOLIS -- Matt Light was not on hand for Tuesday's Super Bowl "Media Day" due to a stomach bug that also affected other Patriots team personnel. Light was the only player not to attend the annual event on five days before the biggest football game of the season and is believed to be the only Patriots player affected by the bug, according to a report by the NFL Network. 

"Matt Light, please get well soon," Osi Umenyiora told reporters during the Giants media session on the Lucas Oil Stadium field. "I hope to see you on Sunday. You are one of my greatest friends."

Defensive lineman Umenyiora and left tackle Light have a long history of scuffles during games, dating back to the regular season finale of 2007. Last week, Umenyiora told reporters that Light does things to him while blocking that got under his skin, leading to the hard feelings the two have had over the last four seasons.

Rondo out, O'Neal back on Tuesday

Celtics point guard Rajon Rondo will miss his seventh straight game on Tuesday due to an injured right wrist, coach Doc Rivers told the Associated Press. Rondo is averaging 15.1 points, 9.4 assists and 5.1 rebounds a game while averaging over 36 minutes in his 13 games. However, the Celtics have managed to go 4-2 in his absence.

Meanwhile, Rivers also said at the morning shootaround that Jermaine O'Neal will be back after missing the last week with a bruised knee. The 33-year-old has played 15 games, starting 14, averaging 5.5 points, 5.6 boards and 1.4 blocks a night in 23 minutes.

Eli: Peyton best QB 'I've ever seen'

INDIANAPOLIS -- Speaking at Media Day at Lucas Oil Stadium, Eli Manning was asked about the NFL future of his brother, Peyton Manning. The Giants signal-caller wouldn't get into specifics regarding where or even if his older brother will play in 2012, but was quick to praise the future Hall of Famer.

"Peyton has had an unbelievable career and in my opinion is the best I’ve ever seen play football,” Manning said. “My goal is to get to his level of play. That’s something I’ve worked on."

Ochocinco: SB win wouldn't save my season

INDIANPOLIS -- Chad Ochocinco drew a large crowd at Media Day on Tuesday, a much larger group than many of the players at podiums. In the middle of a nearly 30-minute session with the media, the receiver was asked if a Super Bowl victory would salvage what has been an admittedly frustrating season.

"No, I don't know, it just wouldn't," Ochocinco said. "I mean it hasn't been tough, it's football. It's football, one abnormal year doesn't negate years of success. ... after a 10-year span, I finally had a year where it didn’t go well."

Ridley: 'Definitely' expect to play Sunday

INDIANAPOLIS -- Running back Stevan Ridey, inactive for the AFC championship win over the Ravens, was asked by WEEI.com at Media Day on Tuesday if he expects to be active for Super Bowl XLVI.

"Definitely, man," Ridley said. "I don't know how much or what's going on in the mind of Bill Belichick, but I just know I'll be in uniform and be out there and be prepared to play when they call my number." 

Ridley averaged 5.1 yards per carry in his rookie season and appeared to be taking a larger role in the offense late in the season. But fumbles in the regular-season finale against the Bills and the playoff win over the Broncos was likely the reason for the healthy scratch vs. the Ravens.

"I'm not sure what it was, but common sense says two fumbles in two weeks just is not acceptable," said Ridley. "I'm going to work hard on that and do what I have to do to get his respect back."
