Hernandez back at practice for Pats

FOXBORO — After missing a day of practice on Wednesday, tight end Aaron Hernandez was back for the start of Thursday's practice session for Patriots. The session, which was held in the Dana-Farber Fieldhouse in full pads, was only missing two players: running back Fred Taylor, who has been slowed by a toe issue, and safety Jarrad Page, who suffered a calf injury a few weeks back against the Ravens.

Red Sox to pick up Ortiz' option

The Red Sox have announced they will pick up David Ortiz' $12.5 million option for 2011, along with the option for Scott Atchison, while declining the options on Bill Hall and Felipe Lopez. Ortiz told WEEI.com last week that he preferred to sign a multi-year deal, and would be "uncomfortable" with playing under a one-year deal for '12. The 34-year-old hit .270 with 32 home runs and 102 RBI in '10. For more Red Sox coverage, see the team page at weei.com/redsox.

Allen on D&H: No problem with trash talk

In Ray Allen's appearance on the Dale & Holley show, the All-Star guard talked about what it means to score 20,000 points, whether he seriously considered leaving the Celtics this past summer and his reaction to the Kevin Garnett-Charlie Villanueva controversy. "I know Kevin and Charlie were going at it," Allen said. "One of the things people don’t know about Kevin is he wanted to go to UConn. He talks so much trash about UConn now because I went there. Charlie was the recipient of that trash talk because he went to UConn. I thought it was all in good fun. I don’t think he said anything that was out of bounds.
 
"So many people say so many things," Allen continued. "So I don’t know if Kev said it to the extent of what [Villanueva said], but at the same time, that’s all within the lines. We’re trying to play basketball. I can only imagine what the guys in the NFL say to each other....

Doc: Villanueva broke 'unwritten' rule

During his weekly appearance on the Dennis & Callahan Show, Celtics coach Doc Rivers explained his view of the situation involving Kevin Garnett and Detroit forward Charlie Villanueva, in which the Pistons' player said on Twitter that Garnett called him a "cancer patient" during the Celts' Tuesday night win in Auburn Hills. Rivers supported his player's assertion that Garnett was referencing Villanueva's presence on his team, not any medical condition.

 

"Kevin Garnett called him a cancer. What he said on the other end, I can't vouch for. But yelling from our bench, everybody on our bench could hear him yell, 'You're a cancer! You're a cancer!' Rivers explained. "Trash-talking happens so much in the game, so the way to handle it is you play them the next day, the next time and you try to beat them.

 

"The only thing I thought, and I told Kevin this, is why are you talking to him? You can actually...
