Hanley says hasn't been right since hand injury

Interim Red Sox manager Torey Lovullo said he would feel comfortable playing Hanley Ramirez in a game at first base if his health was up to par.

Now Ramirez and the Red Sox have to figure out if his body will cooperate.

Ramirez, who took grounders at first base for the fourth time in six days, was slated to have his injured right shoulder looked at by the Red Sox medical staff. The righty hitter explained that the injury had been bothering him for a while after making a throw more than a month ago. It then cropped up again during the team’s recent homestand.

“I made one throw here at home. I don’t remember what month it was. And I hurt something but I played through it,” Ramirez said. “And then it happened again last homestand here. Since then it wasn’t feeling right and I was playing through it. But it got to the point where I...

Report: NFL would take Brady missing 3 games

It’s becoming more and more clear just how far apart the NFLPA and the NFL were in their negotiations in settling Tom Brady‘s appeal of his four-game suspension for his role in Deflategate.

According to Gary Myers of the New York Daily News, the NFL never made a formal settlement offer, but indicated they were willing to cut the suspension to three games if Brady admitted Deflategate guilt.

Brady and the NFLPA have indicated they wouldn’t accept any penalty that had the quarterback admitting guilt.

The two sides met again with Judge Richard Berman in New York Monday, but a settlement was not reached. Berman said he will rule on the case at some point this week.

Brady, Boyce among missing at Pats practice

FOXBORO — Tom Brady was just one of 12 players not spotted at Patriots practice on Monday in shorts and shells outside Gillette Stadium.

While Brady was, of course, down in New York City attending a settlement hearing with NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell in front of federal judge Richard Berman, there were several other notable players missing. Most interesting might be wide receiver Josh Boyce, who did not get a single snap in the game against the Saints or Panthers.

Also not seen were the following players who are nursing injuries: Brandon LaFell, Darryl Roberts, James Develin, Bryan Stork, Joe...

No Deflategate agreement; ruling this week

No settlement was reached in Deflategate on Monday, but Judge Richard Berman told both Tom Brady and NFL commissioner Roger Goodell that he expects to make a decision in the case Tuesday or Wednesday, or “definitely” by Friday.

“We did not reach a settlement,” Berman said, according to Stephen Brown of the New York Daily News. “The parties tried quite hard I think. In some case [a settlement] doesn’t happen. This is one of those cases.”

NFLPA attorney Jeffrey Kessler, who has argued on behalf of Brady, sounded confident as he left the courthouse, telling Gary Myers of the New York Daily News, “I trust the court will give us a just result.”

Giants' Mara in court for Deflategate hearing

Giants owner John Mara was among those in the courtroom for Monday morning’s Deflategate hearing, after Judge Richard Berman expressed an interest in getting the chairman of the NFL’s chief executive committee involved in settlement talks.

NFL attorneys initially rejected the idea of having Mara involved, as they want to keep the hearing’s focus on whether commissioner Roger Goodell has the authority to rule on Tom Brady‘s discipline, and not whether the discipline was fair or not.

It also was suggested that there could be a conflict of interest, as the Patriots’ fourth game is against one of the ...
