Mashup: T.O. wants DeSean to hold out

Terrell Owens has some advice for Eagles receiver DeSean Jackson: Sit out Week 1. Jackson, making $600,000 in the final year of his rookie deal, was late in reporting to Eagles camp because he wants a new deal, but he has been with the team since early August. Said Owens: "I guarantee you, if he goes out and gets hurt, God forbid, he's not going to get the contract that he probably would have gotten if he held out."

That said, Owens acknowledged that he might have been too aggressive in seeking more money when he played in Philadelphia. “I probably would have handled it in a more professional way,” Owens said.  “I still stand by the fact that I never tried to do anything out of the norm to tarnish my relationship with the Eagles.  My agent tried to do the necessary things to try and do things behind closed doors to ensure I got a good contract at that time.”

Both players are represented by Drew Rosenhaus...

Red Sox offense, Lester dominate Jays

TORONTO -- The Red Sox rebounded from their 1-0, 11-inning loss Monday with a resounding 14-0 win over the Blue Jays Tuesday night at Rogers Centre. In the victory, the Sox tied a season-high for hits (20), with David Ortiz and Marco Scutaro leading the way with four apiece. It was the most hits since the Sox' May 25 win in Cleveland.

Earning the win was Jon Lester, who threw seven shutout innings, allowing just three hits while striking out 11 and walking one. Rookie Kyle Weiland came on to pitch the final two innings.

The Sox scored four runs in the first inning, two in the second, two in the third, three in the fourth, and two more in the fifth to claim a 13-0 lead heading into the sixth. The only two home runs in the explosion came from Jarrod Saltalamacchia (a two-run blast in the third) and Josh Reddick (a solo homer in the eighth). 

Scutaro totaled four RBIs, while Adrian Gonzalez and David Ortiz came away with three runs apiece...

Buchholz may throw off mound next week

TORONTO -- Clay Buchholz took another step forward in his return from the stress fracture in his back and is hoping to throw off a mound at some point during the Red Sox' next homestead.

On Tuesday he made 75 throws -- 25 warming up, 25 from 60 feet and 25 more from 90 feet -- with no problems, and he plans on stretching out the maximum distance of his throws to 105 feet Wednesday. The pitcher reported that "everything felt good," in his first throwing session since going back-to-back days over the weekend.

"If everything goes right -- and I think I'm doing two days on, one day off -- if there's enough days, that's what we're going to do hopefully for sure while we're home," Buchholz said regarding throwing off a mound for the first time since July 25. "I'll be able to put some spikes on and get off a mound and see how it feels.

"Obviously off a mound won’t be the same effort I’m throwing now,"...

Sprained ankle for Beckett, no tendon issue

TORONTO -- The Red Sox released a statement Tuesday regarding the health of Josh Beckett, who left Monday's game after 3 2/3 innings with what was classified as an ankle injury. After Beckett was examined by Dr. George Theodore at Massachusetts General Hospital, it was determined that the injury the pitcher suffered was "consistent with an ankle sprain." Following is the statement released by the team.

"Josh was evaluated today at the Massachusetts General Hospital by the Red Sox medical staff, including team foot and ankle specialist Dr. George Theodore. Josh experienced pain in his ankle while pitching last night. His examination was consistent with an ankle sprain. An MRI was performed that confirmed no other injury to his ankle tendons, or his Achilles tendon. We will re-evaluate his symptoms and availability later this week."

Red Sox manager Terry Francona said prior to Tuesday night's game that it was unlikely Beckett...

Belichick: Happy with Patriots safeties
By: DJ Bean

Patriots coach Bill Belichick joined Glenn Ordway, Michael Holley and Tedy Bruschi on The Big Show Tuesday, discussing where the defending AFC East champions stand as they prepare for Monday's season-opener against the Dolphins in Miami.

Belichick would not comment on the release of cornerback Darius Butler, saying, "Whatever announcements we have, we'll put them out there." While he wouldn't comment on Butler, he did address the state of the team after its other releases.

The Patriots' most notable release last week was that of safety Brandon Meriweather, the team's first-round pick in the 2007 draft. The team also moved on from safety James Sanders, leaving the Pats with a relatively young collection of players at the safety position. 

"I think we have a group of young players there," Belichick said of the Patriots' safety crop. "They're all involved in the kicking game as well. Patrick Chung has had a solid...
