Branch on 'classless' Jets: 'It's behind me'

FOXBORO -- Last year, following the Patriots' stunning playoff loss to their AFC East rivals, Deion Branch took very vocal exception with the celebration of several Jets players on the Gillette Stadium turf and their behavior in the final moments. The receiver called it "classless" at the time but on Friday, the Patriots receiver said he met with several of the Jets and worked out his harsh feelings. 

"Nah, that's stuff is behind me," Branch said, two days before the rematch at Gillette. "I'm a refreshed man. I'm a refreshed man Everything's good. That stuff is in the past. I don't think about that. I spoke to those guys. I'm a refreshed man. Everything's good. It's all about going out Sunday and playing football.

"I think the rivalry will get guys pumped up. All that stuff that happened in the past, I don't think guys are really fueling off that stuff. They're not coming in here and saying, 'We beat them last...

Pats practice: Mayo, Woodhead miss

FOXBORO -- For the third straight day, Patriots starting linebacker and captain Jerod Mayo was missing from the start of practice on Friday as the team worked out in shorts and shells on the lower grass field outside Gillette. Mayo injured his left knee in the first half last Sunday in the win over the Raiders. 

Also missing for the third straight day were Julian Edelman (ankle), Danny Woodhead (ankle) and Sebastian Vollmer (back). 

Aaron Hernandez (knee) was on the field again for the Patriots, as was Albert Haynesworth (back). Patriots coach Bill Belichick indicated Friday morning that he wants to see how both players handle practice on consecutive days before making a decision on whether they will be available on Sunday.

Patriots cut Kettani, add Victorian

As expected, the Patriots have released running back Eric Kettani from the practice squad and resigned rookie defensive back Josh Victorian to the practice squad.

Kettani, 5-foot-11 and 235 pounds, was originally signed by the Patriots as a rookie free agent on May 4, 2009 out of Navy and was placed on the reserve military list on July 23, 2009. He was activated from the reserve military list on July 28. After being released after training camp this past summer, Kettani was signed to the practice squad, but he was reportedly called back to serve in the Navy.

Victorian, 5-foot-10 and 190 pounds, went to training camp with Baltimore after signing with the Ravens as a rookie free agent out of Louisiana Tech. He was signed to the New England practice squad on September 22 and then released from the practice squad on...

Henry: Sox were unlikely to retain Francona

Red Sox principal owner John Henry, in his appearance with team CEO Larry Lucchino on the Dennis & Callahan Show, acknowledged that the team was unlikely to pick up the two-year option on former manager Terry Francona's three-year contract. However, Henry also suggested that the team did not have the chance to make Francona's departure truly "mutual," intimating that two-time World Series winner took the decision out of the club's hands.

"We really didn’t get a chance to make it mutual. Thinking about it, would we have ended up in the same place he ended up? Based on the things we heard, the things we saw, it’s a strong likelihood that we would have. So you could say it was mutual," said Henry. "But the way it took place, in my mind, wasn’t mutual."

Lucchino said that a meeting between owners, GM Theo Epstein and Assistant GM Ben Cherington two days after the end of the season made clear...

Henry: 'Theo is not going to be GM forever'

Red Sox owner John Henry and CEO Larry Lucchino, in a Friday morning appearance on the Dennis & Callahan Show, declined to comment directly on the Cubs' request to talk about a job in their organization with current Red Sox GM Theo Epstein. Both Henry and Lucchino said that the organization has a policy of not commenting on requests for permission by other clubs to talk with their personnel, with Lucchino noting that the team had not commented on (or made public) a past request about Epstein and Henry noting that other teams had requested permission to talk to Lucchino in the past.

"Every year we get requests from people. We’ve never discussed them publicly," said Lucchino. "We don’t comment on requests."

Speaking generally, Henry did note that permission is typically granted by teams to organizations that want to discuss a promotion.

"There is a certain protocol in this game,...
