Adam Colemans spring tour is over, with Wallabies coach Michael Cheika confirming the lineout general has suffered a grade tour medial ligament strain.Coleman suffered the injury early in Saturdays 23-22 victory over Scotland, when a ruck collapsed and he copped a knock to the left knee.The 25-year-old had scans on Saturday night, travelled with the team to Paris on Sunday and was hopeful of playing a part later in the tour but received the bad news on Monday morning.Obviously Adam has got an injury thats going to rule him out of the rest of the tour, theres no doubt about that, Cheika said in Paris.Well get him home and get him healed and then he can have a holiday before next season starts.His role in the starting lineup will likely be filled by the experienced Rob Simmons, while a host of squad members - including veteran Kane Douglas, the versatile Dean Mumm as well as fringe options Will Skelton and Sam Carter - could also benefit.But theres no doubting Colemans absence is a serious blow to Australias grand slam ambitions, with the rkie forming a devastating combination with fellow towering youngster Rory Arnold in quick time this year.Coleman has also embraced the lineout calling and taken on a senior role within the team - but Cheika wanted to focus on having found a dynamic young locking combination, rather than lament losing him for the rest of the year.Its a bit of a shame for him because hes had a really gd start to the year and hes worked his way through since June, Cheika added.In saying that it gives someone else an opportunity now.Theres two ways to lk at it. Theres the discovery - weve been able to get these two guys playing gd rugby and starting to improve at this level.Weve also got ourselves another very, very handy lineout caller and hes only in single digit Tests.(Coleman has) got a gd future. Hes got to keep working on it, theres no doubt about that. He knows that.Hes disappointed but thats the way fty goes sometimes.Australia play France at Stade de France on Saturday (Sunday AEDT), before finishing off with Tests against Ireland and England.

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- The Patriots have been pretty fortunate in regards to how their schedule has played out this season.The final four games of the regular season could prove to be their toughest yet, though they may face one or more of them with yet another key player sidelined.New England receiver and Danny Amendola left Sundays 26-10 win over the Rams in the third quarter with an ankle injury, and was later spotted in the tunnel postgame walking on crutches.Should he miss any playing time, it would be the latest blow to a team thats already lost tight end Rob Gronkowski to season-ending back surgery last week. It also creates a hole on special teams, where Amendola also serves as the primary punt returner.Any time you lose a guy like Danny whos another big piece of this team, its terrible, receiver Julian Edelman said. Hes a gd leader on this team. He comes in and he makes plays. He catches first downs like its nothing. He makes big plays in the special-teams game. So its gonna be tough.The Patriots will face three teams that currently have winning records over the next four weeks, beginning with a Monday night matchup with the AFC North-leading Baltimore Ravens and their always stingy defense.The Ravens had no problem dispatching Miami, currently second to New England in the AFC East, in a 38-6 win on Sunday. The victory snapped the Dolphins six-game win streak.Obviously, theyre a gd team, Patriots running back LeGarrette Blount said. Right now, weve got to make sure we stay on our Ps and Qs, and cross our Xs and just continue to do what weve got to do to make sure that we continue to win these games.The Rams return home with even more problems to work through on offense after managing just 162 yards of offense.They did not cross midfield in the first half and didnt get inside the Patriots 25 until a 66-yard pass from rkie Jared Goff to Kenny Britt just after the two-minute warning to set up their lone touchdown.The elephant in rm is the offense. I get it. Were working hard on it, coach Jeff Fisher said.GOFFS GAFFESFisher says not to blame Goff for the teams offensive struggles. The bigger problem was dropped throws and pass protection.When you hit someone in the chest with the ftball, youve got to hang on it, even though there is contact involved, Fisher said. He extended plays with his legs; he moved around. ... Jared Goff wasnt the reason we lost this ftball game today.Goff completed 14 of 32 passes for 161 yards -- 66 of them on a fourth-down throw to Kenny Britt to set up the Rams only touchdown with just under 2 minutes left.dddddddddddd He also had two interceptions, one on a tipped ball and the other when his arm was hit while he was throwing.We tip the ball and they catch it and then they tip a ball and they catch it. You know, thats the difference in the ballgame really, Fisher said.TURNING A CORNER: The Patriots defense may be coming together at the right time. After failing to force a turnover for 44 straight possessions, New Englands defense has four over the past two games.Sometimes you have droughts and lulls, and theres a lot of things that you need: gd breaks, defensive end Chris Long said. People outside the locker rm may be panicking when we dont get them, but not us. CLOSING IN ON 1,000: Blount rushed 18 times for 88 yards and a touchdown Sunday, leaving him just 43 yards shy of posting his first 1,000-yard season since 2010, when he rushed for 1,007 as a rkie.Blount was placed on injured reserve last December with a hip injury, but said he isnt thinking about that even with a bruising running style that makes him more vulnerable to hits.You cant worry about injuries. You cant worry about last year, he said. Youve just got to worry about what you can control. Injuries -- you cant really control. Youve just got to worry about what you can control.BMING KICKSRams punter Johnny Hekker didnt let it go to his head after usually tight-lipped Patriots coach Bill Belichick called him a tremendous weapon, dangerous and as gd a player as Ive ever seen at that position.It was cl and a little flattering hearing that from a long-time ball coach, Hekker said Sunday. I would love to have him raving about some other players on our team, because we have guys that are worthy of that kind of stuff. But it is a difficult year for us.Hekker punted eight times for a net average of 52.9 yards on Sunday, including a 76-yarder in the fourth quarter than helped pin the Patriots at their own 5-yard line.Belichicks comments made it all the way to Hekkers parents.It definitely gave them a proud moment, he said. They were able to send them to all of their buddies. They were all pretty excited about it.---AP Sports Writer Jimmy Golen contributed to this report.---For more NFL coverage: http://www.pro32.ap.org and http://www.twitter.com/AP-NFL ' ' '
