Here is the latest New England sports news from The Associated Press

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) - Coming off a big win against the Chicago Bears, the New England Patriots are preparing for their biggest test of the season - the Denver Broncos. Peyton Manning will lead Denver into Foxborough on Sunday. It's a rematch of last year's AFC championship game, won by the Broncos 26-16 in Denver, and a possible preview of this year's.

BOSTON (AP) - The Boston Celtics have finalized their opening night roster. The C's have waived guards Will Bynum, Tim Frazier and Rodney McGruder. They've also cut forwards Erik Murphy and Christian Watford and swingman Jarell Eddie. The season opener is tomorrow night against the Brooklyn Nets.

BOSTON (AP) - The Boston Bruins have returned to practice, following an off day on Sunday. The B's are looking to build on Saturday's effort, a 4-1 win over the Toronto Maple Leafs. Kevan Miller remains out indefinitely with a dislocated right shoulder, while Zdeno Chara is sidelined with his left knee injury for about four to six weeks. The Bruins defense has begun to adjust without the two defensemen. They host the Minnesota Wild tonight.

BOSTON (AP) - Activists from Boston opposed to the city's bid for the 2024 summer games have written to the U.S. Olympic Committee to voice their opposition. The group, No Boston Olympics, says hosting the games will be a $10 billion to $20 billion undertaking that will threaten the state's ability to make investments in health care, education and transportation.
