Update: Kelly takes 'maintenance day'

WILMINGTON -- Bruins forward Chris Kelly is the only player missing from Friday's practice at Ristuccia Arena. Head coach Claude Julien termed the absence a "maintenance day."

Lucic -- Krejci -- Horton
Marchand -- Bergeron -- Seguin
Pouliot -- Hamill -- Peverley
Paille -- Campbell -- Thornton

Chara, Seidenberg, Ference, Corvo, McQuaid, and Boychuk on the blue line.

Tim Tebow shows solid power, shaky skills in MLB workout

Tim Tebow shows solid power, shaky skills in MLB workout

LOS ANGELES — Tim Tebow has taken his first big swing at a baseball career, showing off a powerful bat and a few areas of needed improvement in a workout for dozens of major league scouts.

The Heisman Trophy-winning quarterback worked out at the University of Southern California's Dedeaux Field on Tuesday. Scouts and reporters tracked, timed and recorded his every move.

Tebow's 255-pound muscled physique and 6.70-ish time in the 60-yard dash were impressive. So was a series of long homers into the trees and off the scoreboard.

The 29-year-old outfield hopeful also showed he still needs baseball seasoning. Former big-leaguers David Aardsma and Chad Smith repeatedly fooled him with off-speed pitches later in the hitting drills.

Patriots place Lewis, Vollmer on reserve/PUP to get to 75-man limit

Patriots place Lewis, Vollmer on reserve/PUP to get to 75-man limit

FOXBORO -- The Patriots were able to trim their roster to 75 players by Tuesday's 4 p.m. deadline without making any eye-opening cuts. 

The team placed right tackle Sebastian Vollmer and running back Dion Lewis on the reserve/physically unable to perform list, which will make them unavailable for the first six weeks of the regular season. The Patriots also released linebacker Ramon Humber, tight end Steven Scheu and offensive lineman Keavon Milton.

Neither Vollmer nor Lewis were expected to be healthy enough to begin the season. By placing them on reserve/PUP, the Patriots are no longer dedicating active roster spots to those players, but they have also kept the option open for one or both to return later in the year. Guard Tre' Jackson was also placed on reserve/PUP on Monday. Receiver Danny Amendola is the lone player to remain on active/PUP, meaning he will continue to count against the active roster and can re-join the team to practice at any time.
