McQuaid (lower body) misses practice
By: DJ Bean

WILMINGTON -- Bruins defenseman Adam McQuaid was absent from the team's practice Wednesday at Ristuccia Arena with a lower body injury after catching a rut late in the third period of Tuesday's win over the Senators.

Coach Claude Julien said that McQuaid came back to the bench "a little shaken up" after the play. The team hopes McQuaid can return to the ice Thursday against the Hurricanes, but it seems the defenseman's status is up in the air. 

"He got injured last night, so we just felt that it was better to keep him off the ice today," Julien said after Wednesday's practice. "We'll reevaluate his situation tomorrow morning." 

The Bruins will be getting defenseman Andrew Ference back from a three-game suspension Thursday, so in the event that McQuaid is unable to go, the B's would not need to call a defenseman up from Providence.

Mankins: Jets 'full of hot air'

INDIANAPOLIS -- Speaking to the media on Wednesday at University Park Hotel on the campus of IUPUI, Logan Mankins was asked about the Jets and their late-season collapse in 2011. The Jets lost their last three games to finish 8-8 and miss the postseason. 

"The Jets, we know they're full of hot air. We see where they are right now," Mankins told Brian Costello of the New York Post. "They just like to say whatever they feel like saying and sometimes that can come back to bite you in the butt."

LaDainian Tomlinson suggested in a January 19 interview with "Inside the NFL" that locker room turmoil played a factor in the Jets' failures, and called the relationship between Mark Sanchez and Santonio Holmes "as bad as any I've ever been around." Tomlinson added that the brash culture fostered by Rex...

Light returns to practice: 'Feeling great'

INDIANAPOLIS -- Patriots starting left tackle Matt Light said he has recovered from his stomach illness that kept him out of media day on Tuesday and is ready to join the team. 

"Feeling great. I've got my coffee and we're ready to go," Light said Wednesday, before joking about missing "Media Day" at Lucas Oil Stadium. "Really torn up about that. Lost a lot of sleep last night and will never get that opportunity back but I'm going to move on."

Light also spoke for the first time since Osi Umenyiora claimed that Light did things to block him during games that caused their on-field scuffles in their last three meetings. 

"It is what it is," Light said. "It doesn't really bother me. I think everything is going to work out fine. We'll let the game play out. On the field, that's all I can say. I don't know the guy, personally. We're not pen pals. Everything we've ever experience is on the...

Gronk: 'On pace for feeling better'

INDIANAPOLIS -- Rob Gronkowski said Wednesday morning that he continues to make strides toward being ready to take the field on Sunday for Super Bowl XLVI. As for when he'll be ready to practice and practice full tilt, Gronkowski said that is still up in the air. The Patriots returned to the practice field on Wednesday after having Tuesday off for "Media Day."

"I have no clue," Gronkowski said Wednesday morning of his high ankle sprain on his left foot. "I'll see what the trainers say. I'll meet up with them right after this and once we start our day, we'll see how it goes.

"Definitely, I feel better every day. That's the goal, that's the positive direction you want to be going. You want to be moving forward every single day. If you're going backwards, that's not good at all. I'm feeling good every day. The rehab is going well, everything is moving forward and we're on pace for feeling better every day."

Ocho: [Expletive] right, I want back

INDIANAPOLIS -- Chad Ochocinco made no secret about his desire to come back to the Patriots next season for the second year of his three-year, $11.5 million contract, which includes a $4.5 million signing bonus agreed to in July. 

"You [expletive] right. Can I curse? Don't bleep it, I'm just being me. [Expletive] right," Ochocinco told reporters Wednesday morning. 

"Let me address this, the New England Patriots is an elite organization where everything is in house and always stays in house, it's like Fort Knox. There are no leaks, no sources, so claimed, going around the league. There's no such thing. So, with the media, with the fans, with everyone else, is their public opinion on what they feel might be the problem. They don't know what goes on behind closed doors. Nobody does," he said. 

Ochocinco caught just 15 passes and one touchdown this season, his first with Patriots after a late summer trade from...
