Report: Mankins had torn ACL all of '11

Logan Mankins will make his 2012 debut in Nashville, one year after tearing his right ACL in the Monday night opener in Miami, according to a report from ESPN's Adam Schefter on Sunday. Schefter also reports Mankins tore his MCL in the same knee during the playoffs. Mankins went on to earn his fourth Pro Bowl berth at left guard. 

Mankins said during training camp that he played Super Bowl XLVI with the torn ACL but didn't mention that he played the entire season with the injury. Mankins also said during camp that he didn't have an MRI on his injured right knee anytime last season. 

Mankins had reconstructive surgery immediately after the Super Bowl and returned in time for the opening of training camp, marking a remarkable six-month recovery. Mankins also injured his left knee playing left tackle for the first time in his career on Christmas Eve...

Red Sox all alone in cellar after latest loss

The Red Sox struggles continued, with their starting pitching letting them down again. This time it was Daisuke Matsuzaka's 1 1/3 inning outing doing the damage, with the hurler allowing five runs while throwing just 42 pitches. The end result was a 9-2 win for the Blue Jays Saturday night in a game that included two rain delays.

With the loss the Red Sox drop to 63-77 and have lost 10 of their last 11 games, and 15 of their last 19. The Red Sox starters have a 5.90 ERA since Aug. 1, and 9.98 ERA in their last 10 games. They have also pitched four or fewer innings five times in that 10-game stretch.

The Sox could never dig out from the hole dug by Matsuzaka, which included the righty allowing all five of his runs in the second inning. He was replaced by Alfredo Aceves, who pitched 2 2/3 scoreless innings before having to shut it down because of the first rain delay.

Also giving up runs for the Red Sox were Vicente Padilla, who surrendered a...

McDonald, Dennard downgraded to out

As the Patriots landed in Nashville for their game on Sunday against the Titans, the team ruled out two more players for the season opener.

Rain delay for Red Sox, Blue Jays
By: DJ Bean

Heavy rain caused the Red Sox and Blue Jays to go into a rain delay in the bottom of the fourth inning Saturday. At the time of the delay, the Blue Jays held a 5-0 lead after getting to starter Daisuke Matsuzaka for five second-inning runs. Matsuzaka lasted just 1 1/3 innings, giving up five earned runs on five hits, including a homer to Yunel Escobar. He hit a batter, walked one and struck out one. 

The tarps came out after a leadoff single from Jacoby Ellsbury.
