Steelers rule out Ward, Farrior

PITTSBURGH -- While the Patriots will be thin in the secondary, the Steelers will also be playing significantly short-handed Sunday as star receiver Hines Ward will be out with an ankle injury and veteran linebacker James Farrior will not play due to a calf injury. The team ruled both out Sunday morning, hours before the 4:15 p.m. ET kickoff at Heinz Field. 

Ward is considered one of the very best blocking receivers in football and has 26 catches for 258 yards and two touchdowns this season while the 35-year-old Farrior has played in all seven games for the Steelers this season and hasn't missed a reguar season game since 2005, a string of 93 consecutive games. 

Also missing from today's game will be star linebacker James Harrison, who is out with an eye injury. He was injured in Week 4 and hasn't played since, with today marking his fourth straight game on the sidelines. In all, the Steelers list six players as out today with injuries....

Cards complete comeback, crowned champs

The St. Louis Cardinals carried the momentum gained in their dramatic Game 6 win into Game 7, claiming a 6-2, World Series-clinching win over the Rangers Friday night. It was the Cards' 11th World Series title in their franchise's history.

David Freese, a St. Louis native, was named the World Series MVP. The third baseman hit .348 for the seven games after having also claimed the MVP for the National League Championship Series, becoming the sixth player in baseball history to claim both awards in the same postseason.

Pacing the Cards to the victory was starting pitcher Chris Carpenter, who allowed just two runs on six hits over six innings on three days rest to earn the win. 

The Rangers had jumped out to a 2-0 lead in the first inning on RBI doubles from Josh Hamilton and Michael Young. But the Cardinals immediately responded in the bottom half of the first thanks to a two-run double from Freese. Allen Craig, who would later rob Nelson...

Patriots downgrade Barrett to 'out'

The Patriots announced Saturday night that safety Josh Barrett has been downgraded to out for Sunday's game against the Steelers in Pittsburgh.

Over the course of the season, the 26-year-old Barrett has played in four games and has 12 tackles (nine solo). Barrett joins linebacker Dane Fletcher (thumb) among the New England players who have already been downgraded to out. For more Patriots news, check out weei.com/patriots.

Pats confirm release of Bodden

FOXBORO -- The Patriots late Friday afternoon confirmed the release of veteran cornerback Leigh Bodden, just 48 hours before their scheduled showdown with Ben Roethlisberger and the Steelers Sunday afternoon in Pittsburgh. The transaction was first reported by ProFootballTalk.com Friday morning, just moments before Bill Belichick's Friday press conference. Belichick said at the time that he would like to "skip" any comment on Bodden's play in 2011.

At 6-foot-1 and 193 pounds, Bodden was signed as a free agent before the 2009 season with the hopes of fortifying the Patriots secondary. Bodden signed a one-year deal for 2009 before inking a four-year, $22 million contract, with $10 million guaranteed and $6 million in guarantees before the 2010 season.

He played in 15 games with 14 starts in 2009 and tied for the team lead with five interceptions. He missed all of last season with a shoulder injury, but returned this year and played in five...
