Patriots left tackle Matt Light suffered a dislocated kneecap in the Oct. 11 loss to the Denver Broncos, an injury he says also “got a little bit of the MCL.” Speaking with ESPN's “Mike & Mike” on Tuesday morning, the veteran offensive lineman revealed some information on the injury that kept him out of the lineup for five games, saying, “it does sound a little awful, but you take a little time, after you fire everything back up. You have little wizards that work on you, and you're in the training room every day. And you get back out there.” For more Patriots information, check out our football blog, It Is What It Is.

BOSTON -- Celtics coach Doc Rivers said before Monday night's game that Marquis Daniels could return before the All-Star break. "We'll find out more [Tuesday] about Marquis," Rivers said.

We're out of break on the West Coast, so we want to come out of break playing well." Monday was the 22nd straight game Daniels missed following left thumb surgery.

Particularly in a year where the Red Sox have struggled while trying to integrate numerous young players into regular big league roles, accusations that Red Sox prospects are overrated -- whether by the team or writers -- have been widespread.
