Report: Jones files lawsuit against Pats
By: admin

Former Patriots safety defensive back Tebucky Jones has reportedly filed a lawsuit against the team, saying team doctors and others associated with the franchise did not properly diagnose a knee injury he suffered in the 2006 preseason which ultimately ruined his career. According to the Boston Herald, Jones alleges Dr. Thomas J. Gill IV, head physician for the Patriots and also the Red Sox medical director, and Dr. Bertram Zarins, another Patriots physician, did not inform him he suffered a severe tear to his knee ligament against the Washington in a 2006 preseason game at Gillette Stadium. According to his suit, filed last week in Suffolk Superior Court, Jones claims “the failure to diagnose his injuries led to his wrongful release by the New England Patriots and consequential loss of income.”

Yanks sweep four-game set from Sox with 5-2 win in finale

NEW YORK -- Back-to-back solo homers from Johnny Damon and Mark Teixeira off of Red Sox reliever Daniel Bard in the eighth inning of Sunday's game wiped out a 2-1 Boston lead and sent the Yankees on their way to a 5-2 victory that concluded a four-game sweep over the Red Sox. The Sox fell 6.5 games behind the Yankees in the American League East, and slipped into a tie for the wild-card lead with the Texas Rangers. The Sox' losing streak stetched to six games, their longest since August 2006.
 
The Yankees went on to score a pair of runs against the Boston bullpen to produce the final score. The four-run, eighth-inning rally concluded a wild stretch in the final innings of what had been a taut pitchers' duel.
 
Jon Lester and Andy Pettitte both held their opponents scoreless through six innings. But Lester gave up a homer to Alex Rodriguez in the bottom of the seventh to give the Yankees a 1-0 lead.

Bruins' top pick Caron breaks collarbone during tryout

According to a report on TSN, Boston Bruins first round Jordan Caron broke his collarbone Saturday while playing in the first intrasquad game during tryouts for Canada's junior hockey team entry for the World Juniors tournament. The tryout camp is taking place in Saskatoon, and Caron was stretching out for a pass when he was flattened by Regina Pats defenseman Colen Tuebert at the blue line. A broken collarbone takes roughly 6-8 weeks to heal up, so the injury may put Caron in danger of falling behind amid his first B's training camp in September. Caron had impressed Bruins officials during July's prospect development camp with his skill level, size and strength on the puck. "We saw him this morning. He didn't look too great," fellow Team Canada hopeful Ryan Ellis told TSN on Sunday. "He was in a lot of pain."
