Reports: Pats will cut Burgess, Woods

The Patriots will release outside linebackers Pierre Woods and Derrick Burgess, according to multiple media outlets. Burgess, 32, recorded five sacks with New England last season, while the 28-year-old Woods, who was signed as an undrafted free agent in 2006, spent the last four seasons with the Patriots working mainly as a situational linebacker and on special teams. The news on both players was first reported by ESPN.

Lowell has non-displaced rib fracture

After undergoing an MRI and CT scan Friday, it was been determined that Mike Lowell has a non-displaced fracture in one of his ribs. The injury, which doctors tell him shouldn't prevent the first baseman from playing, was suffered in the third inning of the Red Sox' Aug. 20 game against the Blue Jays at Fenway Park when Lowell collided with Toronto baserunner John McDonald on a play at first base.


"I'm medically cleared to play and as long as it doesn't bother me it should be fine," Lowell told The first baseman was the lineup for the first game of Saturday's doubleheader against the White Sox, hitting sixth. "There's really nothing to do. I feel fine. I feel like I'm swing the bat pretty well lately. I think I feel it more when I go through my tee routine and I get a number of swings in. That's when I feel it. Overall I think it's OK."


Lowell said the team had offered a CT scan after...

Eagles win in Herzlich's return
By: DJ Bean

The Boston College Eagles wrapped up their first victory of the season, beating Weber State, 38-20, at Alumni Stadium. After BC put up 31 points in the first half, senior cornerback DeLeon Gause returned an interception 65 yards for a touchdown in the third quarter and nearly added another in the fourth.


The Eagles were led out of the tunnel Saturday by senior linebacker Mark Herzlich, who made his return after missing last season with Ewing's sarcoma, a rare form of bone cancer. 


Herzlich, who was considered one of the top defensive prospects for the 2009 NFL Draft prior to his diagnosis, has been cancer-free since October. The Pennsylvania native also worked through a foot injury in preseason. He had five tackles in Satruday's victory. 

Sophomore quarterback Dave Shinskie completed 10 of his 20 passes for 185 yards. He had two touchdowns and a pair of picks. Junior running back...

Red Sox, Clay done in by Danks

Paul Konerko went 3-for-4 and scored twice in support of the solid pitching of starter John Danks as the White Sox beat the Red Sox, 3-1, in the opener of the day-night doubleheader Saturday afternoon at Fenway Park.


Danks [13-9] allowed just six hits and one run over seven innings, outdueling Red Sox starter Clay Buchholz, who allowed six hits and two runs over five innings. Buchholz was pulled after five innings and 95 pitches, keeping alive the possibility he might pitch on short rest on Wednesday against Tampa Bay. Buchholz, in dropping to 15-6, saw his personal five-game winning streak come to an end and lost for the first time since July 21 and just the third time since May 8. 


Manny Ramirez batted fifth for the White Sox as their designated hitter, singling to right in the first and to left in the sixth in going 2-for-4. He was roundly booed each time he came to the plate.

Three more o-linemen to be cut by Pats

Various reports now indicate the Patriots have told offensive linemen Rich Ohrnberger, Ted Larsen and Thomas Welch they have all been released. Ohrnberger was a fourth-round pick in 2009 who played sparingly as a rookie, while Larsen (sixth round) and Welch (seventh round) were taken this past spring by the Patriots. (Larsen and Welch may stick around Foxboro, however, as they do have practice squad eligibility.)

That trio joins linebacker Eric Alexander, quarterback Zac Robinson and defensive back Ross Ventrone as the players who have been let go by the Patriots this weekend as they continue to cut their roster to the league-mandated 53 by 4 p.m. on Saturday.
