Horton, Rask return to ice for Bruins
By: DJ Bean

WILMINGTON -- Bruins forward Nathan Horton and goaltender Tuukka Rask participated in the Bruins' second veterans practice of the preseason on Friday, clearing up concerns regarding ailments with which the two had dealt.

Horton was coming off a concussion suffered in Game 3 of the Stanley Cup finals as well as a separated shoulder, while Rask had arthroscopic knee surgery over the offseason.

Patrice Bergeron, Tim Thomas and Benoit Pouliot have yet to participate in the veterans practices. The next session will be held on Tuesday.

J. Kraft: Albert understands expectations

Patriots president Jonathan Kraft was a guest of the Dennis & Callahan show Friday morning. In a wide-ranging interview, he talked about his father's role in ending the NFL lockout, why he wants Peyton Manning to return, the 10th anniversary of 9/11 and much more.

The Patriots' signing of controversial defensive lineman Albert Haynesworth was seen by some as a departure from the team's philosophy of avoiding players with checkered pasts. Kraft explained the team's view.

"Before Albert was signed to the team, we sat down and talked to him," Kraft said. "It was pretty clear that Albert, like some other players who maybe have had a similar spotlight shone on them when they've signed here -- like Randy [Moss] or Corey [Dillon] or maybe even Bryan Cox -- I think when you sit and talk to Albert, what you hear is an intense frustration of a man.

"Football's a very hard game to play. When you're intelligent -- and Albert's...

Mashup: Ex-Sox OF Everett arrested again

Former Red Sox outfielder Carl Everett was arrested last week on family violence charges in Texas, the latest run-in with the law for the controversial baseball player. The 40-year-old, who was arrested in April for allegedly pointing a gun at his wife's head, was taken into custody last Friday morning at the home he shares with his wife in Colleyville, Texas. He was charged with assaulting and injuring a family member.

Also in the news, Jets coach Rex Ryan clarified comments that made it sound like he was trying to intimidate Cowboys fans planning to attend Sunday night's game at the Meadowlands. "If somebody else comes to enjoy a game, that's fine. I'm not calling for our guys to do anything," he said. "The safety of every fan is important to everybody in this organization, including me. But would I prefer not to see another color jersey, another team's jersey? Absolutely. I would love to see our stadium just in our color."

Sox leave Toronto with another loss

TORONTO -- The Blue Jays jumped out to a five-run lead after three innings and never looked back, claiming a 7-4 win over the the Red Sox in the teams' series finale Thursday night at Rogers Centre. It was the Sox' 58th loss of the season and kept them 2 1/2 games in back of the Yankees for first place in the American League East.

Taking the loss for the Red Sox was Andrew Miller, who allowed five runs over five innings, giving up eight hits while throwing 93 pitches. Following the lefty were relievers Michael Bowden (1 2/3 innings, run), Felix Doubront (2/3 innings, run) and Matt Albers, who retired both batters he faced.

The only two Red Sox hitters to claim more than one hit were Jacoby Ellsbury and Marco Scutaro, with Scutaro claiming three hits. Jason Varitek hit a solo homer in the ninth inning, his 11th of the season, to cap the scoring.

Wakefield slated to start Tuesday

TORONTO -- According to Red Sox manager Terry Francona, Tim Wakefield will get his next shot at winning his 200th career game Tuesday against Toronto at Fenway Park. After Wakefield, the Sox are scheduled to start John Lackey the following day, with the rotation up in the air after that due to injuries to Erik Bedard (knee) and Josh Beckett (ankle).

"We do have the ability to see how guys bounce back from their outings before we have to make a decision," Francona said. "With an off day and with [Kyle] Weiland, [Andrew] Miller, things like that, it’s kind of in pencil. We need to figure out, like, where Bedard fits in, things like that."

Francona, who also said there was no improvement regarding outfielder J.D. Drew, said that the decision to not put Adrian Gonzalez and Carl Crawford in the starting lineup had less to do with their struggles with Toronto starter Ricky Romero and more due to the opportunity to rest heading...
