FOXBORO — Despite the fact that he missed practice Wednesday because of injury, quarterback Tom Brady expressed confidence that he’ll be good to go for this Sunday’s game against the Colts at Gillette Stadium.
After he missed his second consecutive Wednesday practice with what was described on the injury report as “right shoulder/foot,” Brady spoke to reporters on a national conference call. He was asked, “You were not seen in the media portion of practice today. Can you talk about how you’ve been doing lately and how you’re feeling?”
“I’m doing well. I’m doing well,” Brady responded. “I’m looking forward to the game this weekend.”
Brady missed practice last Wednesday and was limited in the days leading up to the Sunday night game against the Steelers in Pittsburgh because of the same reported injury. In that contest, he...
On Wednesday, President Barack Obama named fifteen recipients of the 2010 Medal of Freedom. It is the nation's highest civilian honor and is, according to the White House press release, "presented to individuals who have made especially meritorious contributions to the security or national interests of the United States, to world peace, or to cultural or other significant public or private endeavors."

The first African American to coach in the NBA—indeed he was the first to coach a major sport at the professional...
According to a major league source, there is "nothing even close" in talks between the Red Sox and Diamondbacks regarding a potential trade to send 23-year-old outfielder Justin Upton from Arizona to Boston.
The Diamondbacks have made it known that they are open to listening to proposals on any player, including the No. 1 overall pick in the 2005 draft. While Upton is viewed as a potential cornerstone player, Arizona may try to use him to accelerate its rebuiliding process by procuring a wealth of talented young players. The Red Sox, according to the source, have "interest" in acquiring Upton, who hit .273 with a .356 OBP, .443 slugging mark, .799 OPS, 17 homers and 18 steals for Arizona in 133 games last year, a season in which he missed most of the final month due to a labrum strain in his shoulder.
For more on the Upton situation,...
