By Paul KenyonINDIANAPOLIS _ Finding controversy has been difficult thus far at Super Bowl XLVI, so much so that any difference of opinion between the teams draws interest.

Osi: Gronkowski will struggle on bum ankle

INDIANAPOLIS — Osi Umenyiora couldn’t play on a high ankle sprain, and he doubts Patriots star tight end Rob Gronkowski can do it, either. Umenyiora missed four straight games this season after suffering a similar injury against the Saints, and he admits he wasn’t at full strength even after...

Pats OT Matt Light, coach Josh McDaniels no-shows at Media Day

The Patriots are gathering at Lucas Oil Stadium for the annual circus called Media Day, getting themselves ready for the insane and the inane.
