Reports: Woodhead signed through '12

Patriots running back Danny Woodhead has been rewarded for his breakout season with the Patriots with a contract extension through 2012, according to multiple media reports.

 

After stepping in for the injured Kevin Faulk, Woodhead has been everything the Patriots hoped for and more. Since being picked up from the Jets off waivers following Week 1, Woodhead has 56 carries for 312 yards with three touchdowns, including a spectacular 36-yard TD dash last week against the Colts.

 

According to the Boston Herald, which was first to report the story, Woodhead signed the contract last week that reportedly pays out a $425,000 signing bonus. He is making $395,000 this season.

Pats-Lions inactives: Taylor in, Deaderick out

In a bit of a surprise, Brandon Deaderick will be out as a healthy scratch for the Patriots, even with defensive linemen Mike Wright and Myron Pryor out with injuries. Tom Brady is active and expected to start for the Patriots, despite being questionable with a sore foot. Running back Fred Taylor is active for the first time since Sept. 26, when the veteran suffered a turf toe injury. He missed the previous seven games recovering from the injury. 

 

For the Lions, quarterback Matthew Stafford will miss the game with a bad shoulder, the third straight game and eighth time in 10 games he's been out injured. Shaun Hill will start at quarterback while lead tailback Jahvid Best (toe) will start for the Lions. 

 

The full list of inactives for the Patriots: Brandon Deaderick, Mark LeVoir, Rich Ohrnberger, Stephen Neal, Taylor Price, Myron Pryor, Jonathan Wilhite and Mike Wright. Deaderick and Ohrnberger were the only...

Ainge: Not planning post-West injury move

Celtics GM Danny Ainge told the Boston Globe that, in the aftermath of point guard Delonte West's broken right wrist, he was not planning any trades to replace the point guard. Even though West is expected to be out for months, Ainge suggested that he was happy with the team's depth at the position.

 

Though Rajon Rondo has missed the last three games with a hamstring strain, the Celtics still feature Nate Robinson, Marquis Daniels and Avery Bradley at the position.

 

"We liked those guys when the season started and I like them even more now with the work they are putting in and this league is a league of opportunity,” Ainge told the Globe. “So we’ll stay with our roster for now and see what we got.”

Shaq: Celtics 'best team I've been on'

After overpowering the Nets while scoring 25 and hauling in 11 rebounds, Celtics center Shaquille O'Neal -- who owns four NBA championship rings -- proclaimed the 2010-11 Celtcs to be "the best team I've been on."

 

“This is a great team. The best team I've been on," said O'Neal. "They've got a lot of weapons on this team, so on any given night anybody can be the leading scorer. The team's very unselfish. ... .”

 

O'Neal confirmed that assessment in response to a follow-up question when asked to compare the Celtics to his three championship Lakers teams and the 2006 Heat.

 

"Yes. Best team," O’Neal repeated. "As far as players….as far as guys being really close…I know we’ve only been at this for two months, but hopefully the outcome to be a good one."
