Ference 'very questionable' to play Saturday
By: DJ Bean

Bruins coach Claude Julien told reporters on Friday that defenseman Andrew Ference is dealing with an upper-body injury, explaining his absence in the third period of Thursday night's 7-5 win over the Flyers.   

 

Julien said that Ference is "very questionable" for Saturday's game against the Penguins.

 

"We're hoping it's minor enough that we'll see him back soon," Julien said.

 

Given Ference's status, the Bruins on Friday morning called up Matt Bartkowski on an emergency basis from Providence.

Celtics assign Bradley to D-League

The Celtics officially assigned rookie guard Avery Bradley to their D-League affiliate in Maine on Friday. The move allows Bradley to get some minutes in games and practice. With Rajon Rondo back from injury, Bradley has played only twice in the last eight games, compiling a total of four minutes played. The move does not open a roster spot for the Celtics. Players assigned to the D-League still count on the roster and the Celtics have the maximum 15 players under contract.

Cold feet: Belichick won't touch footgate

FOXBORO -- Bill Belichick would not offer any reaction on Wes Welker's 11 foot references during Thursday's press conference at Gillette Stadium. 

 

"Right now, my comments are just on the Jets," Belichick said Friday. "That's what we're focused on. You'll have to ask him."

 

Rookie tight end Aaron Hernandez said only, "I thought it was an interesting interview." 

 

Much was made of Welker's comments in light of the published reports last month detailing video of Jets coach Rex Ryan admitting to foot fetishes with his wife. Asked to comment on it at the time, Ryan said it was "a personal matter." For more, visit the Patriots team page at weei.com/patriots and the blog It Is What It Is

King on D&H: Cromartie 'crossed the line'
By: DJ Bean

Peter King of Sports Illustrated joined Dale & Holley on Friday, discussing Sunday's playoff bout between the Patriots and Jets and heavily criticizing New York cornerback Antonio Cromartie. 

 

Cromartie this week called Patriots quarterback Tom Brady an "ass----" in an interview, adding, "[Expletive] him."

 

"I thought it was bush league," King said. "He crossed the line, in my opinion, when you start throwing out expletives and slurs about players on the other team. It's totally uncalled for, and I don't care what the reason is or what the cause is, or how upset he is."

 

King said that if Cromartie were to simply say he hated the Patriots, or if Patriots players said they hated the Jets, it would be a different story, as it would "show how much he wants to beat them." He said the personal attack, however, was out of line.
