Tony Romo on prepping for unfamiliar foe

IRVING, Texas -- Tony Romo has played against the Indianapolis Colts just once in his career. He was making just the fourth start of his career and Peyton Manning brought an undefeated team to Texas Stadium. The Cowboys knocked off the Colts, 21-14, that day with Romo completing 19 of 23 passes for 226 yards. He was intercepted once. A broken collarbone kept him from playing in the 2010 meeting in Indianapolis, but the Cowboys won 38-35 with Jon Kitna directing the offense.

Jon Lester 'probably' would have taken 5-year, $120M Red Sox extension last spring

By now it's clear that the Boston Red Sox's initial extension offer of four years, $70 million to left-handed pitcher Jon Lester during spring training wasn't enough for the two sides to get a deal done. But, hypothetically, say the Red Sox offered Lester a deal similar to the one that Philadelphia Phillies left-hander Cliff Lee got as a free agent in 2010 -- five years, $120 million. Would Lester have taken that deal? "You go back in time and you look at it and you go, 'Probably, yes,' Lester said Thursday night in an appearance on WEEI's Hot Stove show.

Percy Harvin 'tough as boot leather'

FLORHAM PARK, N.J. -- As expected, wide receiver Percy Harvin (ankle) practiced on a limited basis Thursday. There was a slight limp, but barring a setback, he should be ready to play Sunday when the New York Jets meet the New England Patriots. Harvin has impressed with his toughness. Two weeks ago, he suffered a third-degree ankle sprain (the most severe), according to Rex Ryan. Harvin had to be carried up the stairs on the team plane for the return trip from Minneapolis, where he was injured.

Kobe not recruiting Durant to Lakers -- yet

EL SEGUNDO -- Oklahoma City Thunder forward Kevin Durant has openly praised Kobe Bryant, saying he'd love to play with the Los Angeles Lakers shooting guard. And while Bryant said he hasn't yet recruited Durant, who is set to become a free agent in 2016, Bryant didn't rule out trying to lure last season's MVP to the Lakers either. "No, I think we know each other pretty well," Bryant said Thursday at the Lakers' practice facility here, leading into Friday's game between the Thunder (12-13) and Lakers (8-17) at Staples Center.

DeMarco Murray to reach out to Eddie Lacy

IRVING, Texas – When it was learned DeMarco Murray would need surgery to repair a broken left hand, the immediate thought was that he could not play Sunday against the Indianapolis Colts.

Murray said he spoke briefly with Smith this week about playing through the injury and he planned to reach out to Green Bay running back Eddie Lacy.
