NFL players, owners reach 7-day extension

The NFL owners and players have agreed on a seven-day extension in the talks for a new Collective Bargaining Agreement. The two sides, who are working to avoid the first work stoppage in NFL history since 1987, were initially facing a Thursday midnight deadline, but they agreed that afternoon to a 24-hour extension. Now, both sides have extended that again until next Friday. According to reports, both sides will take the weekend off and get back to talking in Washington, D.C. on Monday.

Kampfer has concussion, Bergeron out Sat.
By: DJ Bean

WILMINGTON -- The Bruins will be without two players when they host the Penguins Saturday at TD Garden. Steven Kampfer, who scored in Thursday's 2-1 win, left the game following a hard hit from Mattias Ritola and on Friday was diagnosed with a mild concussion. Coach Claude Julien said after Friday's practice at Ristuccia Arena that the 22-year-old is expected to miss a week. 

 

Patrice Bergeron, meanwhile, is not with the team and has traveled elsewhere due to "personal reasons," according to the coach. He will not play against the Penguins. It will be the first game the 25-year-old has missed all season.

Ex-Celtic Robinson has knee surgery

Thunder guard Nate Robinson had athroscopic surgery on his right knee and is expected to miss 4-6 weeks, the team announced Friday. Robinson, who has played one game for Oklahoma City after being traded from the Celtics last month with Kendrick Perkins for Jeff Green and Nenad Krstic, experienced discomfort in his knee following Monday's practice.

 

“After consulting with our medical team, we have decided this is the best course of action to resolve the issue with certainty, and have Nate back on the court as we enter into the final stages of the season,” Thunder general manager Sam Presti said in a statement.

Schefter: Union OK's longer extension

Adam Schefter of ESPN checked in with the Dennis & Callahan show Friday morning to provide an update on the CBA negations.

 

The union agreed Thursday to a 24-hour extension of the deadline for a new CBA, and the news from Friday morning is that another extension is in the works. "The NFLPA has signed off on another extension of 7-10 days, which is the biggest victory that we can get out of today," Schefter said. "Basically, we're in overtime right now. We're waiting to see whether or not the game's going to double overtime or whether it's going to end in a tie, with all sorts of messy tiebreakers that go through the courts. Nobody wants that. That's not good for football. That's not good for the owners, players, fans."

 

Schefter said some progress has been made on the financial dispute. "Yesterday, to give people an idea, they closed the gap some between the two sides," he said. "They...

Nowinski: Rest a month after concussion

Chris Nowinski, a formal Harvard football player and professional wrestler who now serves as president of the Sports Legacy Institute and co-director of Boston University's Center for the Study of Traumatic Encephalopathy, joined the Dennis & Callahan show Friday morning to talk about problems with concussions in sports and their long-term effects.

 

Nowinski was asked if all the brains donated to his study have tested for chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE). "Very few of people who have played more than maybe 10 years of contact sports [are symptom-free]," he said. "Dr. [Ann] McKee's completed 40 brains or so, and over 30 have had it. … We have over 20 NFL players in the bank right now. Unfortunately, of the ones we've completed, all but one have the disease."

 

Added Nowinski: "I think it's fair to say that the way we've been treating our brains in sports in the past was...
