The latest controversy from Jets minicamp came Monday when cornerback Darrelle Revis sat out a drill as a message to management: "Something just to let them know I can play and I can not play," Revis said.

Tony Allen will become an unrestricted free agent this summer, but he would like to return to the Celtics next season.
“I am a Celtic,” he told WEEI.com. “I love being a Celtic. It’d mean everything in the world [return next season].”

Red Sox team medical director Dr. Thomas Gill told WEEI.com that he does not believe that any missteps were made in the diagnosis and treatment of both outfielder Jacoby Ellsbury's ribs and infielder Mike Lowell's thumb. While both Ellsbury and Lowell have expressed concerns about how their injuries were handled (with Lowell saying that his treatment was "frustrating" and Ellsbury suggesting he was "misdiagnosed"), Gill said that there the medical course followed by the club with both players was appropriate.
Gill suggested that, despite the concerns of the two players, the team's medical operation has offered "huge value-added" to the Red Sox. Part of that, he said, is a byproduct on the efforts of the medical team to win the trust of the players.
