NFL announces timeline for the week

Here’s the complete timeline for the NFL calendar for the next week or so

Monday night: The NFL will release a complete list of the free agents for the 2011 season.

Buchholz: 'Biggest step in right direction'

Red Sox starter Clay Buchholz, on the disabled list since mid-June due to a muscle strain in his lower back, threw 30 pitches off a bullpen mound -- his first session off a mound since the end of June in Philadelphia -- and proclaimed the session to represent a significant marker in his progress back to the rotation. Buchholz threw a "short box" session, in which the catcher sits in front of home plate, and suggested that he got through the session with only minor soreness that he was quickly able to manage.

"This is I think the biggest step in the right direction so far in this process," said Buchholz. "There was still a little soreness coming off after I threw. Sat down for about 10 minutes, did a couple stretches and it felt better."

Buchholz had to cut short his last attempt at throwing a bullpen session at the end of June in Philadelphia. He suggested that he felt like he was 30 percent healthy that day; in...

Pats first practice set for Thursday

The Patriots announced that they will hold their first training camp practice on Thursday, which will be open to the public (times to be announced). Camp will actually open on Wednesday when players are scheduled to report. The first practices are likely to be light as the players begin to work their way into football shape.

The team also has a hotline number for fans to call to get updated practice information: 508-549-0001.

Saltalamacchia to catch Lester's return

Red Sox starter Jon Lester (10-4, 3.31 ERA) will be on the mound for the first time since July 6, when a strained lat muscle led to a precautionary stint on the disabled list. The left-hander is expected to throw 80-90 pitches as he works his way back into the rotation against the Royals, who were shut out by the Rays on Sunday.

Jarrod Saltalamacchia, one day after driving in his most runs (4) as a member of the Red Sox, will be behind the plate for Lester, as the Sox will feature the same lineup that plated 12 runs against the Mariners on Sunday.

For matchup information on how Lester has fared against Kansas City and how Royals starter Kyle Davies (1-9, 7.32) has done against the Sox, visit the Full Count blog. For complete Red Sox coverage, visit weei.com/redsox....

Lockout over: Players, owners agree to deal

The longest work stoppage in NFL history came to an end Monday when the players unanimously signed off on the new collective bargaining agreement, paving the way for a new 10-year agreement between both sides.

NFL commissioner Roger Goodell and NFLPA chief DeMaurice Smith were joined by several key figures in the process like players Jeff Saturday and Domonique Foxworth and owners like Robert Kraft of the Patriots and Carolina’s Jerry Richardson. As a group, they all stood together Monday afternoon after a 136-day lockout just outside the NFLPA offices in Washington, D.C. and heralded the return of the game.

“It’s been a long time coming, but football’s back, and that’s great news for everybody,” said Goodell.

“Thanks to everybody who has been involved in this,” Smith said. “It has been a very, very long process.”

The two sides worked through the...
