Chung, Faulk, McCourty all out vs. Chiefs

FOXBORO -- The Patriots have designated three linebackers as well as safety Patrick Chung and running back Kevin Faulk inactive for their Monday night game against the Chiefs.

Brandon Spikes (knee), Dane Fletcher (thumb) and Jeff Tarpinian (illness) all missed practice time this week with various ailments and will not play. Devin McCourty returned to practice on Saturday after injuring his right shoulder in the second quarter last week against the Jets. He is inactive. 

Patrick Chung will miss his second straight game with a foot injury he suffered late in the loss to the Giants on Nov. 6 at Gillette Stadium. He appeared to turn his right ankle and hasn't played since. He has practiced but has been kept out of the games.

Also inactive is veteran running back Kevin Faulk, who returned from the PUP list on Oct. 30 against the Steelers and was the leading rusher. But he was inactive the next week against the Giants and got little action...

Report: Cassel headed to IR, season over

FOXBORO -- Matt Cassel will not get a chance at a comeback this season as he is headed to injured reserve, according to an ESPN report

Chiefs coach Todd Haley confirmed earlier Monday that Cassel broke his right hand on Nov. 13 against the Broncos, an injury that required surgery last week. ESPN extended the report in the hours before Monday's game at Gillette Stadium that the quarterback who made his mark replacing the injured Tom Brady in 2008 will be placed on season-ending injured reserve according to a league source. 

Haley said there is no ligament damage in the hand. Previously, the team has referred to the injury only as "significant." He had surgery on the hand last week.

Fox Sports reported Sunday that the hand was broken in the loss against the Broncos last Sunday and Cassel will miss the rest of...

He's back: Pats sign Ventrone, cut Thomas

FOXBORO -- Safety Ross Ventrone is on the move again, this time to the Patriots active squad as the team signed him from the practice squad in the hours before Monday night's game with the Chiefs. To make room, the team released offensive lineman Donald Thomas.

This is the 16th transaction this season for the 25-year-old Ventrone, who has spent time on both the practice squad and 53-man roster this season, playing in five games.

Ventrone, 5-8, 190 pounds, was originally signed by the Patriots as a rookie free agent out of Villanova on April 29, 2010. He spent the majority of his rookie season in 2010 on the team's practice squad. Thomas, 26, is a veteran of three NFL seasons with the Miami Dolphins (2008-2009) and the Detroit Lions (2010).

Thomas, 6-4, 310 pounds, was signed by the Patriots on Sept. 14, 2011 and has played in four games with New England. He originally entered the NFL as a sixth-round draft pick out of Connecticut in 2008...

Verlander beats Ellsbury for AL MVP

Tigers starter Justin Verlander beat Jacoby Ellsbury for the American League MVP award, as the right-hander became the first starting pitcher since 1986 to win both the Cy Young and MVP awards in the same season. Verlander, who led the American League in wins (24-5), ERA (2.40), strikeouts (250), innings (251), starts (34), WHIP (0.92), and ERA+ (170), received 280 total points and 13 first-place votes. That allowed him to beat out Red Sox leadoff man Ellsbury, who had 242 points, including four first-place votes and 13 second-place nods.

Ellsbury was beaten out despite emerging as arguably the foremost multi-dimensional threat in the majors. The 28-year-old hit .321 with a .376 OBP, .552 slugging mark, .928 OPS, 32 homers, 39 steals (in 54 attempts) and 105 RBI.

He led the American League with 83 extra-base hits and 364 total bases. Ellsbury delivered middle-of-the-order production while continuing to deliver his top-of-the-lineup impact on...

Olney: Valentine 'not going to back down'

ESPN baseball columnist Buster Olney checked in with the Mut & Merloni show Monday to talk about the Red Sox' managerial search and the MVP balloting.

Much has been made of the fact that team president/CEO Larry Lucchino appears to be having a lot of say in the managerial decision, while new general Ben Cherington's authority has been questioned, at least by the media. That's been most evident with the emergence of Bobby Valentine as a candidate.

"There's no question about it, that Bobby's patron saint inside the Red Sox organization has been Larry Lucchino," Olney said. "The biggest thing going into this interview today is, what kind of dynamic can he create with Ben Cherington, A, and B, does it matter? In the end, if Bobby winds up getting hired, who's the one who really hired him?"

Added Olney: "I do think that this was a situation where Ben has had a run through this process. I think he had clearly...
