The Rap Sheet:
For those who missed it last night, a quick injury update having to do with the Patriots defense. It’s not a major one, which is probably good news.
Patriots DE Shaun Ellis, the veteran former Jets star, suffered bruised ribs in the loss to the Steelers, I’m told. It’s not considered a long-term issue, but don’t be surprised if Ellis misses this week’s game against the Giants.
I bet he’ll be back for his Gang Green crew in two weeks on Sunday Night Football.

Patriots tight ends Rob and Dan Gronkowski spent a good part of their day off earlier today teaming up with Hope Jackson volunteer firefighters in order pitch fire safety to several Rhode Island communities.
During the morning, the Gronkowski brothers hooked up with firefighters at the Hope Elementary School, teaching fire safety to more than 230 students, as part of the Patriots’...
FOXBORO, Mass. -- Running back Danny Woodhead is coming off the first game of his New England career without an offensive touch, but he's got no issues with his role on the team. Maybe not by coincidence, it was also the first time he was on the field at the same time as teammate Kevin Faulk, who returned Sunday after a 13-month absence with a knee injury. Faulk led the Patriots...
In 2007, the Patriots had the best offense in the history of football, but it wasn't enough to win the Super Bowl. They've since maintained an incredibly potent offense while mixing in a suspect defense, and the result has been zero postseason victories for three seasons. After Ben Roethlisberger and the Steelers tore apart the Patriots for the bulk of Sunday afternoon, concerns...
This has kinda gone under the radar, considering the Patriots were on the road in Pittsburgh this weekend. But it’s worth noting that plenty of players returned home to places that weren’t their homes.
Thanks to snow and power outages all across the Foxboro area (and in places like North Andover, right), a ton of players are actually staying in a nearby hotel, rather than their...
Police say New England Patriots receiver Julian Edelman is
headed to court to face an indecent assault and battery charge.
Eli Manning created some waves this summer putting himself in the same class with Tom Brady in a radio interview.
It was instant tabloid material.
How could Manning be in the same elite class with Brady?
Eli had only won one Super Bowl compared to Brady's three, and the New York Giants were entering this season after missing the playoffs a very un-Brady-like two straight years...
New England Patriots wide receiver Julian Edelman was arrested early Tuesday morning for indecent assault and battery.
New York Giants safety Antrel Rolle doesn't seem too worried about New England Patriots wide receiver Wes Welker.
Although Welker has an NFL-leading 57 receptions for 824 yards this season, Rolle doesn't have an answer why the diminutive wideout is giving other NFL defensive backs fits this season.
"I don't know. You've got to ask those guys he's giving...
