The Rap Sheet:
Patriots safety Patrick Chung is listed on the team’s injury report as “doubtful,” which means there isn’t much of a chance he’ll play on Sunday against the Broncos. But there is an even better way to know that he won’t play.
According to eyes on the scene during the Celtics scrimmage (including WEEI.com), Chung is in the front row watching. The team left for Denver this afternoon, and it’s obvious Chung wasn’t on the flight. So, he’s out against the Broncos.
Chung injured his foot against the Giants, and has missed the last five games, while a bunch of players have filled in for him — Sterling Moore, Matthew Slater, Julian Edelman, etc. Now, he’ll miss his sixth.
The team has an empty roster spot, and it makes sense they’ll promote a safety to fill the void. It’s either Ross Ventrone or Moore, and perhaps Ventrone gives them more on special teams. Tune in tomorrow for more exciting surrounding the 53rd spot.

The charges have been dropped against Patriots WR Julian Edelman. He released a statement after the groping allegations disappeared. There’s only one thing left to do. See the surveillance video that led the district attorney to drop the charges. The Herald obtained it today, and it is below:
Well, it has been a few weeks. And Ross Ventrone was likely getting restless. So, the Patriots accommodated him.
The Patriots announced today that Ventrone was promoted to the 53-man roster to fill a spot that opened up when they released DB Malcolm Williams. Ventrone was the choice, I’d think, for his special teams prowess and for what he can add at safety.
