Gronkowski bowls over Skins for NFL record

LANDOVER, Md. -- Just moments after making one of the most powerful runs in team history, Rob Gronkowski caught an 11-yard pass from Tom Brady for a first-quarter touchdown and a new NFL record. 

Gronkowski ran a seam route into the end zone and caught the ball for his 14th receiving touchdown, the most by a tight end in any one season in NFL history. Antonio Gates (2004) and Vernon Davis (2009) had the previous record at 13. 

One play before the record-breaking TD, Gronkowski caught a crossing route and fell to the ground untouchded. He got up and ran to the sideline, shaking off two would-be tacklers, including DeJon Gomes, whom Gronkowski flung off routinely at the Redskins 40. Gronkowski then rumbled down another 20 yards before being tripped up. He kept his balance long enough to get to the Redskins 11.

Warren inactive, Eric Moore active

LANDOVER, Md. -- Defensive lineman Gerard Warren and quarterback Ryan Mallett were announced Sunday as the final two inactive Patriots for today's game here against the Redskins. 

Warren was not on the injury report all week while Mallett has been inactive for all but one game this season. 

Sebastian Vollmer, Patrick Chung, Dan Connolly, Brandon Spikes and Shane Vereen were all ruled out before Sunday with various injuries. Additionally, linebacker Jermaine Cunningham was placed on injured reserve on Saturday with a hamstring injury. 

The moves mean that two players are likely to make their 2011 debut for the Patriots today, as defensive end Eric Moore - signed on Saturday - and defensive back Malcolm Williams are active and available.

Bruins top Columbus; Chara hurt
By: DJ Bean

The Bruins avoided a three-game losing streak, beating the team with the worst record in the NHL, the Columbus Blue Jackets, 5-3, Saturday night in Columbus.

Leading the Bruins -- who fell into a 2-0 hole in the first period -- was Joe Corvo, who notched a pair of goals, including the game-winner in the third period. Zdeno Chara, Nathan Horton and Chris Kelly also lit the lamp for the visitors. Three of the scores came on the power-play for the B's.

The bad news for the Bruins came in the second period when Chara was forced to leave the game after suffering what appeared to be a leg injury after a check by Columbus' Antoine Vermette.

The Bruins' starting goalie, Tim Thomas, was pulled after saving 22 of 25 shots through two periods. He was replaced by Tuukka Rask for the third period, with the backup netminder stopping all 11 of the shots he faced. It marked the first time since March 19 that Thomas had been pulled from a game.

Pats downgrade 4 to out, including Chung

The Patriots announced Saturday night that safety Patrick Chung, offensive lineman Dan Connolly, linebacker Brandon Spikes and running back Shane Vereen have all been downgraded to out for Sunday's game against the Redskins.

Chung (foot) has been sidelined since the end of a Nov. 6 loss to the Giants. In that same game, Spikes (knee) also suffered an injury that has kept him on the shelf since early last month. Meanwhile, Connolly has been slowed by a groin injury over the last month or so (he'll miss his third straight game), and Vereen has struggled with hamstring problems over the course of his rookie season.

They join offensive tackle Sebastian Vollmer, who has suffered back and foot injuries over the course of the season, and was officially downgraded to out on Friday.
