Pats practice: Haynesworth, Chung miss

FOXBORO -- Albert Haynesworth and Patrick Chung were among six Patriots players not spotted at the beginning of a rainy practice on the lower grass field outside Gillette Stadium Thursday afternoon. 

Chung reportedly had thumb surgery on Wednesday and is not likely to play this Sunday in Orchard Park, N.Y., as the Patriots play the Bills. Also missing on Thursday were defensive lineman Mike Wright (concussion), tight ends Aaron Hernandez (knee) and Dan Gronkowski (hamstring), and offensive tackle Sebastian Vollmer (back). 

Kyle Arrington did make his return Thursday to practice - held in shorts and shells - after missing Wednesday.

Pats release Edds, add Tarpinian to 53-man

FOXBORO -- The Patriots signed linebacker Jeff Tarpinian off the practice squad on Thursday and released linebacker A.J. Edds. Taking Tarpinian's spot on the practice squad is defensive back Josh Victorian. 

Edds was signed by the Patriots in the week prior to the season opener in Miami. He did not have a tackle against the Dolphins but made one tackle and assisted on another in the Week 2 win over the Chargers. 

Tarpinian was an undrafted rookie free agent this summer out of Iowa and was signed to the practice squad after clearing waivers following camp. Victorian, also an undrafted rookie free agent this summer from Louisiana Tech, was released by the Ravens in training camp this summer.

Gammons: 'Disconnect' between Tito, Theo

Peter Gammons said Thursday that there is 'an increasing' disconnect between Terry Francona and Theo Epstein. Gammons, a guest on The Dan Patrick Show, was asked if Francona could be managing for his job as the Red Sox struggle to hold on to the wild-card lead.

"I think to some degree, it seems very strange to think that," Gammons said. "I've sensed an increasing disconnect between Theo Epstein and Terry Francona and I think some of the things that have happened ... when Terry came out to mercifully take John Lackey out of the game on Monday night after 14 base runners, four stolen bases, a wild pitch and blowing an 11-5 lead and Lackey -- I don't know if he realized it, he said he didn't -- he stared him down, as if 'How dare you come out and get me.' Lackey said that didn't happen, and that's for the world to see. And Terry was upset about it, but nothing was said, no veteran player got in Lackey's face. ... I think last...

Red Sox showed interest in Capuano

A major league source told WEEI.com's Alex Speier that the Red Sox called to show interest in acquiring Mets left-handed pitcher Chris Capuano last week, and then again earlier this week. No deal was to be made, however, with the Mets not showing interest in the Sox' offer of only cash in the transaction.

The Boston Herald cited a source earlier stating the Sox had made inquiries about the 33-year-old Capuano, who is on a one-year contract with the Mets worth $1.5 million.

If acquired, Capuano, who is 11-12 with a 4.47 ERA this season, would not be eligible for the postseason roster.

The Springfield native has pitched well of late, allowing two runs in each of his last two starts, having gone seven and five innings, respectively. Red Sox manager Terry Francona would not commit to a starter for Sunday when asked...
