Twins' Nathan has ligament tear

Twins closer Joe Nathan was diagnosed with a torn ulnar collateral ligament in his right elbow and is out indefinitely. The Twins said Nathan has a "significant tear" and will decide whether to have surgery within two weeks, after resting and rehabbing. Surgery likely would mean the end to Nathan's season. The right-hander, who had a career-high 47 saves with a 2.10 ERA in 2009, was pitching against the Red Sox Saturday when he left the game with soreness and stiffness in his elbow.

 

“Without Nathan, our bullpen is really in trouble. It has been and it will be if we don’t have Nathan,” Twins manager Ron Gardenhire told WEEI.com on Friday, less than 24 hours before Nathan suffered his injury. “Not saying somebody can’t step in, but without Nathan, we’d be in trouble.”

Kirwan on D&C: Go with Graham

NFL.com analyst and former NFL executive Pat Kirwan joined the Dennis & Callahan show to talk about free agency and the draft. Kirwan said the Patriots would be wise to re-sign Leigh Bodden. "I would not trust any of the other cornerbacks in free agency," he noted.

 

In Kirwan's mock draft, he joins the list of people who are predicting the Patriots will select Michigan linebacker Brandon Graham. "He's really bright, he really loves football," Kirwan said, comparing Graham's focus to current Patriots linebacker Jerod Mayo.

 

Kirwan, who spent eight years working for the Jets, said he is not convinced that New York has moved past the Patriots, because, "It starts with the quarterback." Of the Jets' recent decision to release running back Thomas Jones, Kirwan said: "Those guys ran more than anyone in the NFL, and they lost one of their bell cows. I think they made a tactical error....

Report: Pats close with TE Fells

According to a tweet from ESPN's Adam Schefter, the Patriots are "closing in" on a deal with Rams free agent tight end Daniel Fells. A University of California-Davis product, Fells has seen limited action since signing with the Falcons as an undrafted free agent in 2006. Last season with St. Louis, the 6-foot-4, 272-pounder caught 21 passes for 273 yards and three touchdowns, by far his most productive season. Fells also spent time with the Raiders and Buccaneers in 2007 and '08, although he did not get into a game for either team.

 

Meanwhile, according to multiple reports, former Patriots tight end Benjamin Watson is scheduled to meet with the Browns on Wednesday, after visiting the Seahawks Monday.
