Chara says he's day-to-day
By: DJ Bean

WILMINGTON -- Bruins captain Zdeno Chara, who is out with a left leg injury, met with the media Monday at Ristuccia Arena and said that though he doesn't figure to play Monday against the Kings, he considers himself day-to-day. The Boston Globe reported Sunday that the defenseman will be out for at least a week, and that he could be kept out past Christmas if his recovery takes longer.

"There is no time frame when I'm going to be back, but most likely I won't be playing tomorrow," Chara said. "That's as far as I can tell you right now, because honestly it's at a stage where we can't really talk about any further than 24 hours ahead."

Chara, who was injured in the second period Saturday against the Blue Jackets, said that he feels better than he expected and that he did an upper body workout Monday.

The 6-foot-9 defenseman has not missed more than five games in a season since signing with the Bruins prior to the 2006-07...

Esiason on D&C: 'Get ready for Tebow Time'

CBS Sports NFL analyst Boomer Esiason made his weekly appearance on the Dennis & Callahan show Monday morning to discuss the Patriots and their upcoming Sunday afternoon matchup against Tim Tebow's Broncos.

Both New England and Denver had exciting plays late Sunday to capture their respective wins. The Patriots won a messy 34-27 game against the Redskins in which they struggled defensively and offensively, but Jerod Mayo came up with a game-clinching interception of Rex Grossman at the New England 7-yard line with 20 seconds remaining.

Meanwhile, the Broncos executed another fourth-quarter comeback in which the opposing team made a huge mistake (Marion Barber stepped out of bounds with less than two minutes remaining while the Bears were in possession of the ball and the lead). Tebow suddenly completed the majority of his passes, and the Broncos capped a 13-10 win with an overtime field goal.

"Get ready for Tebow Time," Esiason...

Mashup: Titans accuse Saints of cheating

The Titans dropped a 22-17 decision to the visiting Saints on Sunday, but a couple of Tennessee players said there was some funny business originating from the New Orleans sideline.

Offensive linemen Jake Scott and Michael Roos said they heard a whistle coming from the Saints sideline late in the game, and a producer for "Titans All Access" has proof after capturing it with a microphone that was on Roos.

"Somebody was blowing a whistle on the sideline," Scott said. "There is audio of it, so we'll let it go from there. The second-to-last drive, I think."

Said Roos: "Everybody on our side heard something, we're not sure where it came from exactly. But it sounded like from over there, and until we know more I can't really say anything else. It's not something that should be done but until we can have somebody look at it, we'll have to wait and see."

The Saints did not comment after the game.

Rodney: Pats secondary worst in a decade

Former New England safety Rodney Harrison spoke pointedly about the state of the Patriots Sunday evening, saying the New England secondary is “probably the worst secondary I’ve seen in the last decade.”

“They won a football game, but they should be concerned because that secondary is probably the worst secondary I’ve seen in the last decade,” Harrison said in the wake of New England’s victory over Washington. “It’s been proven the last two years in the playoffs -- if (quarterback Tom) Brady’s off just a little bit, they’re vulnerable to lose.”

Harrison, speaking on NBC’s “Football Night in America,” said Brady’s sideline outburst toward offensive coordinator Bill O’Brien on Sunday was surprising, adding that, “I played six years with him, and I have never seen him this frustrated.”

“I’ve seen Tom Brady play a lot on...
