— Darrelle Revis doesn’t play for the Patriots anymore, which means he’s allowed to be more forthcoming about his groin strain and his availability for the Jets’ next game.

“It’s not getting any worse, it’s getting better,” the cornerback said after limited participation in Thursday’s practice — after taking Wednesday off to rest. “Leading up to these next couple days, we’ll see how it pans out and how it goes with practice. And we’ll see what happens Sunday.”

As for the possibility he plays in Sunday’s game against the Eagles, Revis said, “That’s a game-time decision of what Coach [Todd Bowles] wants to do and what the training staff wants to do.”

Bowles said he’s encouraged by the fact that Revis has progressed since suffering the injury in Monday night’s win over the Colts.

“He did some things in practice,” Bowles said, “and he’ll get better day by day.”

In Monday’s game, Revis had an interception and two fumble recoveries. He was named AFC Defensive Player of the Week.

Wide receiver Erick Decker and running back Chris Ivory also are ailing for the Jets, who are off to a 2-0 start. Decker sprained his left knee Sunday and has not practiced since. Ivory, who strained his groin last week, has a quadriceps injury that has kept him out of practice all week.

— Metta World Peace is back with the Lakers, agreeing to a one-year deal after working out at the team’s training complex this summer.

The team is looking for the 35-year-old defensive specialist to provide a leadership role and toughen up the younger players.

“I think he’d be great in the locker room with young players,” general manager Mitch Kupchak said. “But we have to be careful not to use a roster spot too early because we have a lot of young kids.”

Thursday’s Morning Mashup: Lawyer says suspended Texas HS football players can return to school next semester

— The two Texas high school football players who attacked a referee during a game, leading to their suspension from Jay Jay High School in San Antonio, will be eligible to return from an alternative school next semester, their lawyer said Wednesday.

Attorney Jesse Hernandez revealed to ESPN that the boys — 17-year-old senior Michael Moreno and 15-year-old sophomore Victor Rojas — were barred from John Jay for 75 days, making them eligible to re-enroll in time for the Jan. 15 start of the spring semester.

“Obviously the boys wanted to return to John Jay High School immediately, but we think this punishment is within the bounds of fairness, and the boys have accepted responsibility for their actions,” Hernandez said.

The school district acknowledged holding disciplinary hearings for the players but noted that it could not by law release any information.

Meanwhile, the University Interscholastic League is set to meet Thursday and is expected to discuss further sanctions for those involved, including assistant coach Mack Breed, who reportedly admitted after the Sept. 4 game that he directed the players to hit the referee in retaliation for alleged racial insults.

In a signed statement acquired by ESPN, principal Robert Harris wrote of his discussions with the coaches after the game.

“I later met with Coach Breed at John Jay High School … in my office in the presence of [head coach Gary] Gutierrez,” Harris wrote. “Coach Breed told me that he directed the students to make the referee pay for his racial comments and calls. He wanted to take full responsibility for his actions. Mr. Breed at one point during our conversation stated that he should have handled the referee himself.”

An attorney for referee Robert Watts has said Watts denied using racist remarks of any kind.

— The Seahawks welcomed back safety Kam Chancellor after he ended his hold early Wednesday, and both sides said they are ready to put the business part behind them.

“He is an integral part of our communications and all of that, of course,” coach Pete Carroll said. “And he’s better than anyone in the world at doing what he does for us. So there’s always something that you miss, but that’s well behind us and away we go.”

Wednesday’s Morning Mashup: Baseball mourns Yankees legend Yogi Berra

— Yankees legend Yogi Berra, who still holds the record for most World Series games played, died Tuesday at the age of 90.

“While we mourn the loss of our father, grandfather and great-grandfather, we know he is at peace with Mom,” Berra’s family said in a statement released by the Yogi Berra Museum in New Jersey. “We celebrate his remarkable life, and are thankful he meant so much to so many. He will truly be missed.”

The stocky catcher helped the Yankees reach 14 World Series (and win 10) during his 18 seasons in pinstripes from 1946-63, following his service with the Navy in World War II (including his participation in the D-Day invasion of Normandy). He went on to become a coach and manager for the Yankees, Mets and Astros.

The St. Louis native, who appeared in 15 straight All-Star Games and was a three-time American League MVP (1951, ’54, ’55), still holds records for World Series games (75) and hits (71). He was inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1972.

He also was well known for his “Yogi-isms,” nonsensical phrases that became part of American culture. Among his most well known: “It ain’t over ’til it’s over,” and, “It’s deja vu all over again.”

“We are deeply saddened by the loss of a Yankees legend and American hero, Yogi Berra,” the Yankees posted on Twitter.

Tweeted former Yankees star Dave Winfield: “No! Say it ain’t so. He was a good man, my former manager and friend! RIP Yogi.”

— Prior to Tuesday’s near-no-hitter against the White Sox, the Tigers sent home closer Bruce Rondon for the rest of the season due to his “effort level.”

Tigers manager Brad Ausmus did not offer many details, other than to say that he and general manager Al Avila were in “complete agreement” on the decision. Reports out of Detroit indicate Rondon might have been taking something off his pitches in the past week, sacrificing velocity in an attempt to improve his command.

— The defending AFC championship game finalist Colts are laying a dud this season, and there are calls for change in Indianapolis.

The highly touted Colts offense turned over the ball five times for the second straight week — including a fumble by running back Frank Gore at the opposing 1-yard line — in Monday night’s 20-7 loss to the Jets.

Andrew Luck finished 21-of-37 for 250 yards and a touchdown with three interceptions and a fumble. Indy also was called for 11 penalties. And normally sure-fired kicker Adam Vinatieri missed a 29-yard field goal — his first miss of less than 30 yards since 2007 — as the Colts went into halftime with no points for the second week in a row.

“Andrew Luck normally makes the people around him better,” Indy Star writer (and noted Patriots hater) Gregg Doyel said. “They’ve never been great around him. He normally makes them better; he’s making them worse.”

Said Colts coach Chuck Pagano: “You can’t penalize yourself, you can’t turn the ball over. We have to protect give [Luck] a clean pocket. You can’t drive the length of field and put the football on the ground.”

There has been speculation that Pagano’s job is in jeopardy. Prior to the game, Pagano told ESPN that he expects to finish his career with Indianapolis.

“This is my last job,” said Pagano, who turns 55 on Oct. 4. “And that’s what my plans are. We’ve won, and we’ll continue to do that. But when I took this thing, I said that’s my last job. And when I said that, I meant it. I’m not going nowhere.”

— Those offseason rumors about Randy Moss making an NFL comeback have died down, and Pro Football Talk reports that the onetime Patriots star has not reached out to any teams about resuming his career — nor have any teams inquired about his plans.

Moss is said to be happy working in television, mainly as an analyst on Fox’s pregame show.

Monday’s Morning Mashup: Packers QB Aaron Rodgers tweaks Seahawks’ Russell Wilson by crediting God for win

— Following the Seahawks‘ miraculous comeback victory over the Packers in last season’s NFC championship game, Seattle quarterback Russell Wilson cried and credited God.

That led to a back-and-forth with Packers QB Aaron Rodgers, who commented, “I don’t think God cares a whole lot about the outcome. He cares about the people involved, but I don’t think He’s a big football fan.”

On Sunday night Rodgers got some revenge. After the Packers captured a 27-17 victory, a smirking Rodgers — who completed 25 of 33 passes for 249 yards — took an apparent dig during his postgame press conference.

“I think God was a Packer fan tonight,” Rodgers said. “He was taking care of us.”

Seahawks coach Pete Carroll, meanwhile, pointed to the refs more than any higher power. On a key play in the fourth quarter, Packers linebacker Jay Elliott made a one-handed interception but fumbled the ball. Although Seattle offensive lineman Justin Britt eventually came up with it, the officials ruled that the Packers retained possession.

“I don’t know what the heck happened,” Carroll said. “I’m going to say it out loud here about this fumble thing. When the ball’s on the ground, and there’s a big pileup, we’re trying to get that football. And Justin Britt handed it to the official. Somewhere in there, the officials said that they declared that it was down, that they had the ball. Nobody pointed. Nobody told us that. So we kept battling, and we have the football. I don’t really understand that very well.

“I know what they said and all that, but I’m just disappointed in that because we’re going to compete for that ball, and we did. And we want to walk away from those piles with it, and we did. We just didn’t get it. Anyway, I was just disappointed in how that turned out. It was a huge play in the game, obviously.”

— One week after losing receiver Dez Bryant to a foot injury, the Cowboys lost their quarterback as well, as Tony Romo suffered a broken left collarbone during Sunday’s 20-10 victory over the Eagles.

Romo was to be evaluated again Monday, but expectations are that he will miss at least six weeks, with Brandon Weeden filling in.

“I’ll be back,” said Romo, who had a similar injury that ended his 2010 season in Week 7 that year. “It’s going to take a little bit of time. It’s a broken bone. It is what it is. Our team played great. I’m proud we got this win. It’s not an easy place to come in and win. We’ll hopefully get a few more and we’ll be ready to go.”

Thinking Out Loud: Providence College fall teams make national marks

09.18.15 at 6:27 pm ET

Rooke_JohnThinking out loud … while wondering whatever happened to uber-DH Edgar Martinez?

— And, they’re off. Providence cross country teams are ranked first (women) and third (men) in the Northeast region. They both finished in the top 20 nationally last season, and right now rank eighth (women) and 25th (men) in the national rankings.

— The Friars men’s soccer team started where it left off a year ago, after winning the Big East and reaching the Soccer Cup Final Four. PC went 3-0-1 and ranked eighth nationally before falling in back-to-back overtime games to Brown and Columbia. Those pesky Ivies.

— Providence has had a less competitive women’s volleyball team in recent years, but with the program’s addition to the Big East and athletic scholarships added to the program, things might be changing. A 7-4 start to the season features some outstanding play from junior outside hitter Kayla Fitzgerald, who has claimed Big East Player of the Week honors for three straight weeks.

— The Sporting News this week said the Friars’ Kris Dunn “may be the most complete player in D1,” but he can’t get on TSN’s preseason All-America first team? Dunn was named to the second team instead. Chip, meet shoulder.

— Big brother is still punking little brother around here. CBS put out a list of the top hoop programs in each state, and PC got the nod in Rhode Island over URI, Bryant and Brown. Two NCAA appearances in the last two years probably has a lot to do with it, I’m sure, but the Rhody faithful understandably are miffed. Dec. 5 in Kingston is going to be wild.

— UMass took the honors for Massachusetts in the CBS poll, over Boston College, Holy Cross and Harvard. But the writers did say this was among the “foggiest” of the 50 states to determine a leader. Coincidentally, the Friars face three of the aforementioned four teams on their schedule this year. URI plays Holy Cross and UMass as well.

Darrell Bevell

— The mother of Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch, responding to widespread interest her Monday Facebook post in which she called for offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell to be fired, explained and defended her comments Thursday.

This time using Twitter, Delisa Lynch said she does not talk to her son about football, and she enjoys analyzing the game after watching practices and games for so many years.

Wrote “Momma Lynch”: I realize that as a mother of a player my views will be received differently than the average fan, and I acknowledge that Facebook may have not been the best platform to display my views, but I love the Seahawks just like all the other 12’s [Seahawks fans], so when I see a 4th & 1 ran out of a shotgun formation against a good Rams defensive line, as a FAN it makes me wonder what the coordinators logic was.

Seahawks coach Pete Carroll defended both Bevell — “He does a terrific job” — and Lynch’s mother, who was upset about the play-calling in Sunday’s overtime loss to the Rams and included a dig at Bevell’s widely criticized call in the closing seconds of the Super Bowl loss to the Patriots.

“That’s a mom looking after a kid,” Carroll said Wednesday. “There ain’t nothing wrong with that. … There’s a lot of passion with our following and the 12’s and our family members. … I don’t blame her for having strong feelings. She’s a mom.”

Befell also took the high road, saying, “I’m glad we have passionate fans.”

Added Bevell: “I’m totally confident in what I’m doing. I’m totally confident that I’m getting our team in the best position to win. And I’m glad she’s passionate about us.”

— Blackhawks star Patrick Kane professed his innocence regarding sexual-assault accusations in his first public comments since the incident last month at his offseason home near Buffalo.

Kane is being investigated by police but has yet to be charged with anything. There were reports earlier in the week that his representatives were working on a deal with the alleged victim.

“I cannot apologize enough for the distraction this has caused my family, teammates, this incredible organization and, of course, our fans,” Kane said from Blackhawks training camp at Notre Dame. “While I have too much respect for the legal process to comment on an ongoing matter, I am confident once all the facts are brought to light I will be absolved of having done [anything] wrong.”

— Rutgers football coach Kyle Flood, who has spent the past week discussing problems with his players’ behavior, was suspended three games and fined $50,000 for contacting a faculty members about a player’s grade.

Rutgers President Robert Barchi said an internal investigation revealed that despite knowing it was against school policy to contact a professor about a player’s academic standing, Floor asked about having the player do extra work in order to improve his grade.

“I care deeply about my student-athlete’s academic performance,” Flood said in trying to put on a positive spin while accepting his punishment. “As the head coach, when I recruit players, my responsibility to them and their families is to do all I can to make sure they leave Rutgers with a degree and are prepared for a successful life off the football field.”

Running backs coach Norries Wilson, who was head coach at Columbia from 2006-11, will oversee the team until Flood returns. The Scarlet Knights play Penn State on Saturday.

In the past month, six Rutgers players have been dismissed from the program after being arrested. The list includes star receiver Leonte Carrool who was charged with assaulting an ex-girlfriend over the weekend.

— Kings defenseman Slava Voynov, who lost his work visa after a two-month stint in jail for domestic abuse, is headed back to Russia.

Voynov pleaded no contest in July to a misdemeanor charge of domestic violence against his wife. After his stint in jail ended two weeks ago, he was taken into custody by federal immigration officials and appeared likely to be deported.

Wednesday’s Morning Mashup: Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch’s mother calls for coach’s firing

Seahawks fans are not happy with the team’s coaching staff following Sunday’s season-opening loss to the Rams, and that includes running back Marshawn Lynch‘s mother, who still is upset about the questionable play call in the Super Bowl loss to the Patriots.

In Sunday’s game, offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell called for Lynch to run the ball on fourth-and-1 in overtime. Lynch was stopped behind the line of scrimmage, ending the game.

In a Facebook post Monday, Delisa Lynch called for Bevell to be fired, questioning why her son did not get the ball on the 1-yard line in the Super Bowl, when Patriots defensive back Malcolm Butler intercepted a pass to secure New England’s win, and suggesting Sunday’s poor call was a makeup for that.

Wrote Lynch’s mother: Too the smart azz media who wrote that’s why marshawn didn’t get the ball in the superbowl ,how many times did russell get sacked [Sunday]. Dont worry i will wait on the answer plus it was totally different at the superbowl the line was better than yesterday no blocking and to the offense caller who should have been fired yes i said it Fired !!! He is the worst play-caller ever the only reason he called that dumb azz play yesterday is to be able to justify the 1 yard that wasn’t called in the superbowl ,but most fans already figured this out .were still on a mission but i know the Seahawks staff loves that play caller more than a win ,go figure #’nfldontpayme# I love this team and will stand up to anybody who tries to destroy it boom!!!!

Tuesday’s Morning Mashup: Nationals closer Jonathan Papelbon rips Phillies, then blows save against them

09.15.15 at 7:51 am ET

MLB: Yankees at Rays, 7 p.m. (MLB Network)

— Nationals closer Jonathan Papelbon’s return to Philadelphia on Monday was an eventful one. Before the game, the outspoken reliever shared his frustrations about his former team. Then he proceeded to suffer his first blown save of the season, allowing a game-tying home run in the 10th inning (Washington went on to win in 11 innings).

Papelbon, who left the Red Sox as a free agent to sign a four-year, $50 million deal with the Phillies in 2011, said he is not the one to blame for Philadelphia’s struggles the past couple of seasons, and he doesn’t care if anyone was offended by his desire to be traded.

“If I say something, I mean it,” Papelbon said. “I’m not going to take anything back that I’ve ever said or did because I believe that it’s right. I don’t know if I got a bad rap here or whatever, but I can promise you I was far [from] the bad guy on this team. I was one of the few that wanted to actually win and I was one of the few that competed and posted up every day.”

Papelbon criticized the front office for giving up on the present in favor of a rebuilding plan, noting that president Pat Gillick said last offseason that the team was two years away from competing at the earliest.

“I think the blame goes all the way from the front office all the way down to the bat boy,” he said. “When you don’t have an organization that wants to win it’s pretty evident when they go out and publicly say, we’re not going to win.”

Although he owns the Phillies’ career saves record with 123 (with a 2.31 ERA), Papelbon said he doesn’t care if he’s not welcomed back in Philadelphia going forward.

“I don’t like the barbecues at the alumni weekend anyway,” he said. “It doesn’t really hurt my feelings. The way I look back on it is I came here as a free agent and I looked to produce day in and day out, and I felt like I did that. We had a lot of injuries and a lot of guys fall by the wayside, but I was still be able to be there and grinding every day and posting up so that’s the way I look at it. It just so happened to be an unfortunate situation where you just lost one game after another.”

— The hits keep on coming at Rutgers, as yet another member of the school’s football team is facing legal trouble.

On Monday, one day after Rutgers announced that senior captain Leonte Carroo was suspended indefinitely, it was revealed that he had been arrested for an domestic violence incident Saturday outside the team’s training and administrative building. Carrie is the seventh member of the team to be arrested this month. The other six were kicked off the team.
