Raiders cut JaMarcus Russell

The Raiders released former No. 1 pick JaMarcus Russell on Thursday, ending a tumultuous three-year run where he will have received almost $40 million while producing only seven wins as a starter. The decision came less than two weeks after Oakland acquired Jason Campbell from Washington to take over at quarterback and signifies owner Al Davis finally lost patience with the LSU product who was drafted first overall in 2007. Russell will now likely be considered one of the biggest draft busts in NFL history, joining a group that includes Ryan Leaf. For more football news, check out our football blog, It Is What It Is.

B's McQuaid 'very doubtful' for Game 4

PHILADELPHIA -- Bruins coach Claude Julien said on Thursday that rookie defenseman Adam McQuaid is 'very doubtful' for Game 4 of the Eastern Conference semifinals against the Flyers at the Wachovia Center on Friday. McQuaid suffered a lower-body injury three shifts into Game 3 on Wednesday and only had 1:49 of ice time. The defenseman played in 19 regular season games for the Bruins with one goal and 2 penalty minutes. He had played in all nine of the Bruins playoff games and had a plus/minus ratio of -4 with six penalty minutes.

 

"He suffered what we would call 'lower body injury' in the playoffs. Basically, very doubtful for tomorrow but then will be a day-to-day situation," Julien said.

Krejci fortunate to find hand surgeon

PHILADELPHIA -- The Bruins had a some good fortune in light of losing center David Krejci to a dislocated wrist after a first period hit by Flyers captain Mike Richards in Game 3 on Wednesday.

"First of all we were fortunate enough to have one of the best hand surgeons in the country, from what I have been told, on hand yesterday," head coach Claude Julien said. "He works out of Baltimore, lives there and he was nice enough to bring David back with him and do the surgery last night. That is my whole understanding of how that happened. He was really good for David and our team and I thought it was really nice of him and we were fortunate enough to...
