Garnett Joins Fellow Injured Celtics

Another day, another Boston Celtic injury. Celtics F Kevin Garnett has a sore right knee and may join F Glen Davis and F/G Paul Pierce as game day inactives Wednesday. Head coach Doc Rivers did not officially rule out Garnett, but said he was "leaning heavily" in that direction. Garnett's right knee, the same knee that was surgically repaired last summer, was accidentally kicked when the Celtics faced the Warriors Monday night.

Hearing on Football Related Head Injuries

The House Judiciary Committee has scheduled a hearing Monday regarding head injuries in football. Among the witnesses who will testify before the committee are former NFL players Ted Johnson, Kyle Turley, and Bernie Parrish as well as former boxer Tommy Hearns and the Rev. Al Sharpton. The hearing is a follow up to the Oct. 28th session where lawmakers questioned NFL commissioner Roger Goodell about his league's concussion policies. Since then, Goodell has instituted a stricter policy on when a player can return from a concussion and told every team they must use an independent neurologist as a consultant for any concussion related injury.
