Reports: Mild knee soreness for Pedroia

According to reports out of Detroit on Sunday morning, Red Sox second baseman Dustin Pedroia was originally in the Red Sox starting lineup for Sunday's game before being scratched due to mild knee soreness. The condition was being described as minor. Pedroia is out of the lineup for the first time all season. In his place, Bill Hall -- who homered in each of the first two games of the series against the Tigers -- gets his first start of 2010 at second base. Hall made three starts at the position last year.

A day after saying he injured “just the [anterior cruciate ligament]” in his left knee in the regular-season finale against the Texans (which would run counter to reports that he had also injured the medial collateral ligament) Patriots wide receiver Wes Welker clarified that statement, saying on said Saturday he indeed injured two knee ligaments last season against Houston, but only one — the ACL — required surgery.
 
Speaking to The Associated Press at his football camp in Oklahoma City, the NFL’s receptions leader said the ACL and MCL in his left knee were injured during the Patriots’ final regular-season game. Welker, who also underwent rotator cuff surgery in the offseason, said the MCL didn’t require surgery and “if you have that healing on its own, it almost becomes stronger.”
 
“We just had to wait for it to heal,” Welker said of the MCL. “We didn...
