Chara leaves practice with leg injury
By: DJ Bean

Bruins captain Zdeno Chara's status for Tuesday's black and white scrimmage is up in the air after the defenseman left Monday's practice with a bruise in his left leg. 

Chara was hit by a puck on a clearing attempt, and it appeared he was grabbing the inside of his left knee as he slowly finished the play and left the ice.

"He just got a shot on the inside of the leg there," Claude Julien said after the practice. "Right now it's a contusion, and we're just going to evaluate it as we go along here. This is training camp, and if he needs an extra day, we'll give him an extra day. If he's OK tomorrow, he'll go. We'll see. It's a day-by-day bruise, a shot inside the leg."

Lowrie returns for Game 2

Jed Lowrie is expected to return from a sore left shoulder and start Game 2 of Monday's day-night doubleheader against the Orioles at third base, Red Sox manager Terry Francona said Monday morning prior to Game 1. 

Lowrie left last Tuesday's game against the Blue Jays with soreness in his nagging left shoulder and hasn't played since. The Red Sox face lefty Brian Matusz in Game 2. 

"I hope we've wait long enough where we get Jed back [full strength] because, especially against left-handers, he can be such a force. Hopefully, that'll be the case." 

Lowrie has been outstanding this year when healthy against left-handed pitching, batting .337 with three homers, with a .510 slugging percentage and an .870 OPS.

Brady on D&C: Ocho's critics have no clue

Tom Brady made his weekly appearance on the Dennis & Callahan show Monday morning to recap Sunday's 35-21 victory over the Chargers.

"We made some good plays out there in all three phases," Brady said. "That was really a great complementary game by all of us in a team win. It's a very good San Diego team. That was a tough game we played against them last year. Last year in San Diego, we didn't do anything offensively. So, to come out and play this way offensively against a very good defensive team I think was very encouraging for all of us."

Asked about former Patriots such as Tedy Bruschi criticizing Chad Ochocinco for tweeting about being in awe of the Pats offense and not being more involved, Brady said he's focused on the players still in uniform.

"We all just are trying to do our jobs," Brady said. "That's the thing about it. As a quarterback, that's why it's so fun playing for the Patriots. All I...
