Lowell to undergo another surgery on hip

After initially thinking he would postpone any further surgical procedures on his right hip, former Red Sox third baseman Mike Lowell will undergo a 'resurfacing' of his already surgically-repaired hip in New York Friday. The operation won't include a hip replacement, which does figure to be a possibility for Lowell at some point.

The 37-year-old first experienced problems with the body part when suffering a torn labrum during the 2008 season, ultimately forcing Lowell to have surgery following the season. He continued to experience problems with the injury throughout the '09 and '10 seasons, eventually retiring after playing in 73 games last season.

Back in February, Lowell talked to WEEI.com about the challenges he has faced since the end of the '10 season.

Jets' Ryan: Belichick 'best coach'

Jets coach Rex Ryan continues his media tour to promote his new book, "Play Like You Mean It," and the Patriots-Jets rivalry continues to be a popular topic. The New York Post reports that during a taping of the YES Network show "CenterStage" on Thursday, Ryan talked about his off-field strategy leading up to the divisional playoff victory over the Patriots.

Ryan explained that he wanted to get the discussion away from the team's previous regular-season meeting, a 45-3 Patriots victory, and that's why he made comments that the game was about him and Bill Belichick.

"That whole week, I never wanted it to be about that 45-3 game," Ryan said. "And I knew if I didn't do something, [the media] would be talking about it with our players, and I never wanted that negative thought to creep into their minds.

"There certainly was a method behind it, and I told [Jets general manager Mike Tannenbaum] after we win...

Havlicek to Big Baby: Remember 1969

WALTHAM -- Glen Davis said he was inspired Thursday at practice by John "Hondo" Havlicek, who reminded Davis of another Celtics team that was in a 2-0 playoff hole, only to overcome all the odds and win the NBA title. 

“The frustration, things not working out, you can get all messed up," said Davis. "But I was talking to Havlicek today, you know, ‘Havlicek Stole the Ball’ and I said which one of these [championship] banners were you 0-2, and he said the one that stood out to him was 1969. When they were down 0-2, they came back to win it in Game 7 against the Lakers."

Davis - who was born on New Year's Day 1986 - said Havlicek kept reminding him of the will of that '69 Celtics team. 

“He was just saying, ‘It’s going to take everything in you to fight and claw back and get back to get to 2-2 even but then it’s going to take something special to finish them off,'...

Ex-Pats WR Reche Caldwell busted for pot

Former Patriots wide receiver Reche Caldwell was arrested for possession of marijuana, according to the Gainesville (Fla.) Sun. Caldwell, who had the best season of his career when he was with New England in 2006 (61 catches, 760 yards and four touchdowns), was arrested Thursday morning in Hillsborough County, Fla., for possession of less than 20 grams of cannabis and driving with canceled/suspended/revoked license. He was released on a $750 cash bond. Caldwell, a 2002 draft pick out of Florida, also played with San Diego and Washington.
