Chung fined $7,500 for Bush tackle

Patrick Chung is the first Patriots player to be fined by the NFL during the regular season for an illegal play on the field.

Chung was informed this week by the league that he was docked $7,500 for hauling down Miami's Reggie Bush Monday night, in a move the league deemed he "unnecessarily grabbed the opponent by the helmet in an attempt to make a tackle."

Chung was also penalized 15 yards on the play for unnecessary roughness.

Francona: Drew back 'on hold' with neck

There's yet another injury holding back the return of Red Sox right fielder J.D. Drew. Red Sox manager Terry Francona said before Friday's game that Drew suffered a setback having to do with his neck. 

"He got a little bit of a neck problem [Thursday] so he's back on hold," Francona said. 

Drew, in the final year of a five-year, $70 million contract, hasn't played since July 19 due to his injured left shoulder. During a rehab stint with Triple-A Pawtucket, Drew earned more time on the DL when he suffered an avulsion fracture to his middle finger. Drew has played just 77 games and is hitting a career-low .219 with four homers and 21 RBIs. 

Meanwhile, Francona confirmed that Kevin Youkilis (sports hernia, hip) will not be available until Sunday, at the earliest. 

"He's pretty sore. I think we kind of a knew that [Thursday] night. He's certainly not going to play tonight and he won't play [Saturday...
