The team that set off the never-ending deflategate saga with their initial complaint is now dealing with a scandal of their own. The Indianapolis Colts are under investigation by the NFL for failing to disclose that their star quarterback, Andrew Luck, has been playing through multiple fractured ribs in addition to a separated right shoulder. Meanwhile, suspicion continues to swirl around the still-undefeated Patriots.
In other sports news, the Kansas City Royals capped off a successful postseason with a dramatic victory in the World Series over the New York Mets, and the Bruins had a rough Tuesday night.
- "Patriots fans already are gleefully pointing out the hypocrisy arising from the Colts, who pulled the pin on the #DeflateGate grenade, potentially breaking the rules in blatant fashion. And the ultimate irony would be a report from ESPN that 11 of 12 ribs were broken."
- "The league’s security conducted a pregame sweep of the visitors’ locker room for electronic bugs at Gillette Stadium on Oct. 25, and also questioned during the game two Patriots game-day employees who were wearing headsets on the sideline, multiple league sources confirmed to the Globe on Friday."
- "Down 2-0 in the ninth, Kansas City fought back in Game 5 against two of the top arms on the pitching-rich Mets: Matt Harvey and Jeurys Familia. And the Royals did it not with home run power but instead a daring dash from Eric Hosmer, a three-run double by Lorenzo Cain, a couple of crucial stolen bases."
- "It was one more triumph for the Stars’ Tyler Seguin (three goals) over Loui Eriksson (two). It was one more defeat at TD Garden, in a sea of them in the early season. None of that, though, was what left the Bruins’ dressing room somber Tuesday night in the wake of the 5-3 ugliness, a defeat by Dallas that ended the Bruins’ 6-0-1 run. That, instead, happened exactly 100 seconds into the game, when Chris Kelly’s left leg buckled, crumpling him to the ice."
