Scal set to return, Daniels in drills

WALTHAM -- After missing two games with a separated right shoulder, Brian Scalabrine returned to Celtics practice on Tuesday and was cleared to play on the team's upcoming trip to Orlando and Atlanta. "Scal practiced today and showed no sign of injury," coach Doc Rivers announced following practice. "He shot two airballs and I was like, 'Scal's back.' He's good. He'll play." Rivers said that Marquis Daniels participated in passing drills for the first time since surgery on his left thumb. Rivers is hopeful Daniels could rejoin the team the first game back from the All-Star break.

Begin skates at Bruins practice

 Only three members of the Boston Bruins suited up for ice time Tuesday at Ristuccia Arena in Wilmington. The three were Marc Savard, Byron Bitz and Steve Begin, all coming back from injury and expected to play on Friday and Saturday against Buffalo and Los Angeles. The workout was Begin's first time on the ice injuring his lower body against the Kings on January 16th. The rest of the team participated in off ice activities and conditioning.

 

"I am feeling better, it is better everyday," Begin said. "We will come in tomorrow and see, probably push more, maybe skate with the guys. It is just a lower-body injury. Nothing too big but we but we are coming along and hopefully I will be ready for this weekend."

Pees joins Ravens' staff

Former Patriots defensive coordinator Dean Pees was named the linebackers coach with Baltimore Tuesday morning. Pees, who was in New England for six seasons — the last four as defensive coordinator and two years before that as linebackers coach — announced earlier this month that he wouldn’t be returning to the Patriots after his four-year contract had run its course. “It’s a privilege and an honor to be a part of an organization like the Ravens,” the 60-year-old Pees said in a statement issued through the team. “I’m very anxious and excited for the opportunity to work with Coach Harbaugh and also Greg Mattison, with whom I have coached. I think this is a tremendous opportunity and something that my family and I are very excited about. I can’t wait to get to work.” For more Patriots news, check out our football blog, It Is What It Is.

Light: I had dislocated kneecap

Patriots left tackle Matt Light suffered a dislocated kneecap in the Oct. 11 loss to the Denver Broncos, an injury he says also “got a little bit of the MCL.” Speaking with ESPN's “Mike & Mike” on Tuesday morning, the veteran offensive lineman revealed some information on the injury that kept him out of the lineup for five games, saying, “it does sound a little awful, but you take a little time, after you fire everything back up. You have little wizards that work on you, and you're in the training room every day. And you get back out there.” For more Patriots information, check out our football blog, It Is What It Is.
