Light likely to remain at left tackle

FOXBORO  --  If Matt Light is cleared to play this weekend against the Jets after missing the last four games with a knee injury, don't expect him to be moved over to right tackle so Sebastian Vollmer can stay on the left side. "I'm not saying he can't do it, I think he's just better on the left side," Patriots head coach Bill Belichick said on Friday of Light. Vollmer has played left tackle, protecting Tom Brady's blind side, while Nick Kaczur has played right tackle. "Nick, on the other hand, was a left tackle in college all the way, and the first thing we do was put him at right tackle and he's done well there. Could Matt play right tackle, I'm sure he could but he's done a lot better at left tackle." Light has missed the last four games after injuring his knee in New England's 20-17  OT loss in Denver on Oct. 11.

Sox claim former Mariners pitcher

The Red Sox have claimed right-handed pitcher Robert Manuel off waivers from the Seattle Mariners, putting their 40-man roster at 32 players. The deadline for setting teams' 40-man rosters is at midnight Friday. The Red Sox aren't expected to make any more additions before the deadline.
 
Manuel, 26, made his Major League debut with the Cincinnati Reds in 2009, tossing 4.1 innings of scoreless relief over three games.  He began the season with Cincinnati’s Triple-A Louisville affiliate, going 3-4 with 10 saves and a 2.70 ERA (14 ER/46.2 IP) in 36 relief outings over two stints with the Bats.  Manuel was traded to Seattle on July 29 in exchange for outfielder Wladimir Balentien and finished the season with Triple-A Tacoma, going 1-1 with four saves and a 3.32 ERA (7 ER/19.0 IP) in 15 appearances.  His .207 combined opponent batting average between Louisville and Tacoma was eighth-best among all Triple-A relievers.
