The Patriots announced Saturday night wide receiver Julian Edelman and linebacker Dont'a Hightower have been downgraded to out for Sunday's game against the Seahawks in Seattle. Edelman has struggled with a hand injury since a Sept. 23 loss to the Ravens, while Hightower injured his hamstring in a Sept. 30 win over the Bills.
Edelman and Hightower join Steve Gregory (hip) and linebacker Tracy White (foot), who were listed as out on the team's Friday afternoon injury report. The team has to add three more players to the inactive list before Sunday afternoon's game -- those are typically announced 90 minutes prior to kickoff.
One player who has struggled with injury lately who could play is tight end Aaron Hernandez. Hernandez, who suffered an ankle injury in a Week Two loss to the Cardinals, has been on the shelf ever since. However, he practiced in a limited capacity on Wednesday and Thursday of this...

Five years ago, the Red Sox nearly confronted the same horrible two-word counterfactual inquiry that will haunt the 2012 Washington Nationals all offseason: What if?
What if the Nationals hadn’t shut down Stephen Strasburg? What if the dominating right-hander had been the Game 1 and Game 5 starter (relegating Gio Gonzalez to a Game 2 outing)? Or, even if on a restricted workload, could he have come in and impacted the end of a game as David Price did in 2008, when, as a rookie, he closed out the Rays’ Game 7 win in the ALCS against the Sox?
Would Washington have won its first playoff series since 1924? Would Strasburg have avoided the meltdown that Gonzalez endured in a 36-pitch fifth inning on Friday that set in motion the Cardinals...

WALTHAM -- With all the talk of different starting lineups for the Celtics this season, the reality is that Doc Rivers has eight or nine players who could fit that role depending on the situation. The obvious parallel to that is four players who could start will have to come off the bench.
Rookie Jared Sullinger has emerged as a potential starter, which would ultimately put Brandon Bass with the second unit. Bass said he had no comment about any of the lineup maneuvering, and added, "We have to get better as a team. I think Doc will make the best decision for the team."
Pressed further he said, "I've got to keep getting better, everybody’s got to keep getting better." The Celtics next preseason game is Saturday night in Hartford when they play the Knicks.
