Source: Papelbon, Phillies agree to deal

The Philadelphia Phillies and free agent closer Jonathan Papelbon have come to agreement on a four year deal, pending a physical. The agreement also includes a vesting option for a 5th season. CSNPhilly.com was the first to report the deal.

It had been reported earlier in the week that Ryan Madson and the Phillies had agreed upon a four-year deal worth $44 million with a fifth-year vesting option for $13 million pending approval by team president David Montgomery. But that report has since been denied by multiple media outlets, as well as the Phillies' organization.

Chung, Wendell back to practice

FOXBORO -- In what was a sight for sore eyes for Patriots fans, teammates and coaches, safety Patrick Chung suited up Friday morning and headed out to practice, two days from the team's showdown with the Jets at MetLife Stadium. 

Chung appeared to turn his ankle trying to make an interception on the sidelines late in the fourth quarter of Sunday's loss to the Giants. He missed Wednesday and Thursday practices with what the team termed a foot injury. 

Also returning was offensive lineman Ryan Wendell, who missed the first two days of practice this week due to a concussion suffered in the Giants game. The only players missing from practice in sweats and shells on the upper grass fields were Dane Fletcher (thumb) and Brandon Spikes (knee). Both have missed practice all week as the team prepares for the Jets Sunday night.

Fleury: Abuse is world's 'biggest epidemic'

Former NHL star Theo Fleury, a victim of sexual abuse at the hands of a Canadian junior hockey coach when he was a teenager, joined the Dennis & Callahan show Friday morning to discuss his recovery and offer some insight into how the alleged victims of the Penn State situation are feeling.

Fleury is now a motivational speaker and author of the 2009 autobiography "Playing with Fire," in which he made public the abuse he faced by Graham James, who served time in prison for abusing other players.

"I've gone through my process, and what's happened is basically to my own pain and what I've gone through I've found the purpose for my life, and that's to help people such as the boys from Penn State," Fleury said. "If they ask me or wanted me to go and speak or hang out with these young boys, that's what I do on a daily basis. I talk about the subject pretty much nonstop. It's been amazing since this Penn State stuff's come out...

Lombardi on D&C: Brady holds ball too long

NFL Network's Michael Lombardi joined the Dennis & Callahan show Friday morning for his weekly discussion about the Patriots and the NFL. The Pats visit the Jets Sunday night in a critical AFC East matchup, coming off a loss to the Giants in which the offense took a while to get going.

"Last week against the Giants, they struggled offensively," Lombardi said. "When the Patriots defense gives their offense the ball back six times and the Patriots offense doesn't score any points, you're asking for trouble. You're really asking for trouble. You miss a 27-yard field goal, you miss a receiver in the end zone for a touchdown, you have so many opportunities that your defense isn't good enough to stay in the middle of the ring.

"The Patriots are no different than the Packers, they're no different than the Saints. Their offense has to carry them. And when their offense gets shut out in the first half, that's going to be a problem...
