Crash kills tailgater at Harvard-Yale game

One woman was killed and two others injured when a U-Haul truck sped through a parking lot into a crowd of tailgaters Saturday before the Harvard-Yale football game in New Haven, authorities said. According to reports, a police spokesman said the truck entered a parking area designated for pre-game tailgating, but quickly sped up for unknown reasons and hit the women. The truck then crashed into other U-Haul vans in the lot. A 30-year-old Massachusetts woman was taken to Yale-New Haven hospital, where she was pronounced dead. The driver of the truck was taken into custody.

McCourty returns to Pats practice

FOXBORO -- After reportedly separating his right shoulder in Sunday night's win over the Jets and missing the first three days of practice this week, cornerback Devin McCourty returned to Patriots practice on Saturday morning inside Gillette Stadium. 

McCourty was injured in the second quarter Sunday night when safety Sterling Moore ran into him. McCourty left grabbing his right shoulder and did not return. His return to practice - which was held in sweats and shells for a third straight day - does not necessarily mean he will play Monday night.  Jerod Mayo returned to practice in the days before the game with the Cowboys but didn't return to game action until after the bye week against the Steelers. 

Missing for the fourth straight day were linebackers Dane Fletcher (thumb), Brandon Spikes (knee) and Jeff Tarpinian (illness). 

The team will hold a walk-through on Sunday before taking on the Chiefs Monday night at...

BC blown out by Holy Cross

Senior guard Devin Brown exploded for 32 points as Holy Cross routed Boston College, 86-64, Friday night at Worcester's DCU Center.

BC had won 16 of the last 17 meetings between the teams (the last loss coming in 2002), but this one was all Holy Cross. The Crusaders led 38-30 at the half behind 7-of-11 shooting from 3-point range and pulled away in the second half.

Brown hit 11-of-19 shots, including 5-of-9 3-pointers, as the Crusaders won their first game of the year against two losses. Holy Cross hit 51 percent of its field goals, including half of its 22 3-pointers.

Freshman point guard Jordan Daniels scored 15 points and senior guard John Cahill had 13 for BC (1-2), which shot 39 percent from the field. Freshman center Dennis Clifford netted 10. Freshman forward Patrick Heckmann, who had 19 points and eight rebounds in Monday's season-opening victory over New Hampshire, missed the game with an ankle injury.

Sox add Middlebrooks to 40-man roster

The Red Sox added top prospect Will Middlebrooks as well as outfielder Che-Hsuan Lin and left-handed pitcher Drake Britton to their 40-man roster for the purposes of protecting them from the Rule 5 draft next month. Middlebrooks is considered a future everyday third baseman who will open next season in Triple-A. Lin is a speedy, defensively gifted outfielder whose lack of power relegates him to status as a likely future role player. Britton is a left-hander who struggled badly at High-A Salem this year, but whose power stuff nonetheless made him worthy of protecting by adding to the 40-man roster.

Pioli: Belichick draft criticism 'ridiculous'

Chiefs GM and former Patriots vice president of player personnel Scott Pioli, in an appearance on The Big Show, said that criticism of the draft and player personnel record of Patriots coach Bill Belichick was "ridiculous." While some of Belichick's player moves have come under scrutiny in the years since Pioli left New England for the Chiefs after the 2008 season, the architect of the Chiefs -- who spent 16 years working with Belichick in the NFL -- said that Belichick remains the best coach in the NFL and that the Patriots front office continues to assemble strong groups.

"I haven’t paid attention to it but I just think it’s ridiculous, quite honestly," Pioli said of such criticism. "The reality is Bill’s done a great job with that football team. Bill does a great job with personnel."

"What happened dring our time here together for the nine years was special. ... A lot of things came...
