Turco clears waivers, practices with Bruins

Goalie Marty Turco has cleared waivers and is practicing with the Bruins this afternoon, the team announced.

Turco was sincerely hoping no one would claim him. Not only because he relished the chance to back up Tim Thomas, but also because if he was claimed it would have been merely to keep him out of Boston. He would not have been eligible to join another club this season if claimed because he signed after the trade deadline.

More to come . . .

Giardi: Garoppolo 'still in pain,' does not have full mobility in shoulder

The Patriots had both Jimmy Garoppolo and Jacoby Brissett on the field for Tuesday's practice.

While many are hopeful that Garoppolo will be ready to go on Sunday, it’s definitely not a given at this point.

According to CSN’s Mike Giardi, Garoppolo is “still in pain and does not yet have full mobility in his throwing shoulder”

Tom E. Curran had better news about Jacoby Brissett’s thumb. The rookie quarterback was in the Patriots locker room locker room Tuesday morning without splint, tape or cast on his thumb. 

When he asked Brissett if he's feeling "tip-top," he answered, "Oh yeah."
