Report: Kaczur has 'significant' back injury

According to ESPN.com, Patriots offensive lineman Nick Kaczur has told teammates he has a significant back injury that could potentially sideline him for the entire 2010 season. The report states that Kaczur, who has been out of the Pats' last 11 training camp sessions, was slated to move from tackle to guard, could seek another medical opinion, but the prospects for a return any time soon remain "grim." Five-year veteran Dan Connolly has been lining up with the starting unit with both Kaczur and holdout Logan Mankins not available. For more Patriots coverage see the team page at weei.com/patriots.

Sox strike first: Buchholz beats Yanks

NEW YORK -- Clay Buchholz claimed his first career victory against the Yankees, allowing three runs on nine hits in 7 1/3 innings, leading his team past New York, 6-3. With the victory, the Sox moved within five games of he Yankees in the division, the closest they've been since the All-Star break.
