Source: Welker among three on PUP list

Wide receiver Wes Welker, outside linebacker Shawn Crable and defensive lineman Kade Weston have all placed on the active/physically unable to perform list by the Patriots, according to a league source. All three players are eligible to come off the list at any time, but in doing so, the team has left open the possibility that they could start the regular season on the reserve/physically unable to perform list — which would force them to miss the first six weeks of the regular season. While they are on the PUP list, it also frees up roster spots.

Welker, who had surgery to repair a turn left anterior cruciate ligament in February, is reportedly ahead of schedule in his rehab process, while Crable has been dogged by injuries in his two seasons with the team (he has ended both years on injured reserve) while Weston, who was selected in the seventh round of the 2010 draft, dealt with a knee injury as a collegian.

The news was...

Mort on D&C: Brady 'not happy' about waiting

ESPN NFL insider Chris Mortensen joined the Dennis & Callahan show Tuesday morning to talk about news around the league. Touching on the Tom Brady situation, Mortensen insists that Brady is not happy despite reports that his contract talks with the team are progressing. "I think he'll always handle it like a pro, but I trust very much the people I talk to that he absolutely has not been happy about this situation," Mortensen said, adding, "Why would we expect Tom to be happy, making $6.5 million? It's not like they're going out there and signing a bunch of free agents to truly make this team better."

 

When pressed for more explanation of Brady's attitude, Mortensen said: "Here it is, getting ready to start a season, and he's scheduled to make $6.5 million. And on principal alone, he's not happy. It's business, but business always crosses a little over the personal line. He's not happy that he's had to wait this...

Mashup: Titans sue USC's Kiffin

Lane Kiffin should have known better when he decided to tread on Tennessee territory. The former University of Tennessee coach, who became Public Enemy No. 1 in the Volunteer State for the way he left the Vols after just one season to take over at USC, is being sued by the Tennessee Titans for luring assistant coach Kennedy Pola from the NFL team. Read more about that story, plus find out why Cubs pitcher Carlos Zambrano still isn't being well received despite his public apology for his June 25 dugout tirade. It's all at Tuesday's Morning Mashup.

Martinez, offense return for Sox in win

ANAHEIM, Calif. -- The return of catcher Victor Martinez after four weeks on the disabled list helped to deepen a Red Sox offense that had seemed dormant in his absence. Martinez drove in a run (marking the first run driven in by a Sox catcher in July) and David Ortiz smashed a pair of home runs -- his 35th career multi-homer game with the Sox -- to help lead the Sox to a 6-3 victory over the Angels.

 

After Adrian Beltre tripled to lead off the second inning, Martinez jumped on the first pitch he'd seen in more than four weeks, lining a run-scoring single to center against new Angels starter Dan Haren. One inning later, Ortiz ambushed a Haren fastball for a solo homer down the right-field line to give the Sox a 2-1 lead. Ortiz later crushed a two-run homer against reliever Fernando Rodney in the eighth inning, giving him 21 homers on the season.

 

That provided the Sox with all the offense they needed on a night when...

Benches warned in Sox-Angels

ANAHEIM, Calif. -- Both benches were warned by home plate umpire Wally Bell after Angels reliever Fernando Rodney drilled Red Sox third baseman Adrian Beltre in the back with a 97 mph fastball on a 1-0 count. The plunking occurred one batter after Rodney had been taken deep by Red Sox DH David Ortiz, who crushed a 97 mph fastball into the stands in right-center for his second homer of the game, a two-run blast that gave Boston a 4-2 lead.

 

Beltre stood still in the box and glared at Rodney after being hit, with Angels catcher Mike Napoli and Bell stepping in front of Beltre. Red Sox manager Terry Francona -- and others on the Sox bench -- addressed Rodney in terms that would be unfit for nearby Disneyland.
