Vollmer, Cannon missing from Pats practice

FOXBORO -- A pair of offensive tackles were missing at the start of Patriots practice on Friday as Marcus Cannon and Sebastian Vollmer were not spotted on the upper grass fields. The Patriots worked in sweats and shells as they continued preparing for the Redskins this Sunday at FedEx Field. 

Vollmer has missed practice ever since injuring his right foot against the Eagles on Nov. 27 in Philadelphia. Cannon, a cancer survivor, has been active and in the lineup since making his NFL debut on Nov. 21 against the Chiefs. Friday marked his first absence since being cleared to join the team in workouts. 

The Patriots have been battling depth issues along the offensive line all season, as Cannon filled in for the injured Vollmer last Sunday. 

Rookie running back Stevan Ridley returned to practice on Friday after missing Wednesday and Thursday for a personal matter. For more, visit the Patriots team page at...

Report: Celtics trading Big Baby for Bass

The Celtics will reportedly acquire Brandon Bass from the Magic in a sign-and-trade with Glen Davis, per Yahoo! Sports. Bass and Davis were teammates for one season at LSU and are somewhat similar players in that they are both power forwards with perimeter offensive games who are sometimes forced to defend centers on defense. But Bass is a better shooter and more athletic than Davis.

Bass averaged 11 points and 5.6 rebounds while starting 51 games for Orlando last season and he's a solid outside shooter, especially from 16-23 feet. The Celtics bench is beginning to take shape with Keyon Dooling, Marquis Daniels and Bass, who has a player option for next season at $4 million. Davis was believed to be looking for a deal in that range.

NBA trades cannot be announced until 2 p.m. The Herald also reported the move.

Ference on D&C: Seguin growing up fast

Bruins defenseman Andrew Ference checked in with Dennis & Callahan Friday morning for his weekly conversation, and he spent some time talking about the Tyler Seguin situation. The 19-year-old forward was held out of Tuesday night's game in Winnipeg for oversleeping and missing a team breakfast meeting that morning.

Ference was asked why he, as assistant captain, or one of the other veterans didn't make sure Seguin was awake and in attendance.

"By the time we have a meeting, everybody pretty much scatters [beforehand] and you're there for meeting time," Ference said. "So, either you're there or you're not when the meeting starts. There's usually not roll call until right when it's supposed to start."

Seguin messed up, but Ference indicated the situation should not be overblown.

"It was a real honest mistake," Ference said. "Actually, a few guys were having trouble with their Blackberrys. The...

Jets' Ryan: We want Patriots in playoffs

Jets coach Rex Ryan has taken some heat for his underachieving team this season, but Ryan remains as confident as ever. Talking to the New York Daily News' Mike Lupica, Ryan was asked about the Patriots, who lead the 7-5 Jets by two games in the AFC East.

Said Ryan: "I feel we're gonna play them again, and I’m excited about that. Even when we got our doors blown off, 45-3, last season, I wanted to play ’em again. I meant it then, I mean it now. We WANT to play them. No question we want to play them.”

The Patriots, Steelers and Ravens are considered the class of the AFC, but Ryan stated: "We can beat all those teams. ... If we get in [the playoffs], look out."

Ryan also talked about his overall approach to the job since he arrived from Baltimore, and how he needed to change the attitude...

Mashup: Giants' Jacobs proud to be 'a bully'

The Giants and Cowboys have been engaging in a war of words leading up to Sunday night's game. On Wednesday, Cowboys cornerback Mike Jenkins called trash-talking Giants running back Brandon Jacobs "a bully." The 6-foot-4, 264-pound Jacobs said he didn't mind the accusation, bragging, "I am a bully."

Added Jacobs Thursday: "I think people who call out bullies are afraid of bullies. If you call me a bully, that's how I see it. They're just sitting back there waiting for us to come there, and we're going to come in there ready to play football."

A few other NFL players have been mouthing off as well. Vikings defensive end Jared Allen had some interesting things to say about two NFC rival cities. The 2-10 Vikings play the Lions on Sunday, and Allen said he isn't looking forward to visiting the Motor City. "I don't like going to Detroit," he said. "It's gloomy, it sucks, everything's brown. There's snow on...
