Red Wings defenseman Jonathan Ericsson has been sidelined indefinitely with a knee injury. The Red Wings on Tuesday recalled defenseman Doug Janik from Grand Rapids of the American Hockey League to replace Ericsson, who sustained a bone bruise to his left knee in a collision with Phoenix forward Shane Doan during Monday night's 3-2 win. Further tests showed no damage to the major ligaments within Ericsson's knee. In 31 games this season, Ericsson has three goals and seven assists and a minus-7 rating.

In a crowded field of cell phone makers, Ericsson has yet to distinguish itself (in the United States, anyway). But Ericsson is worth a second look; the company makes some great phones, with more on the horizon.The CF788 I tested ($140) was packed with features, including a phone book, caller ID, last-10-call retrieval, programmable ring tones, voice mail, Short Message Service (SMS) and lots more. It's available in red, green, blue, gray or black.The CF788 offers several key features. First, its size makes it a winner, fitting neatly in the palm of your hand.

STOCKHOLM, Sweden - LM Ericsson, the largest supplier of wireless networks, announced yesterday that it will eliminate as many as another 10,000 jobs and may lose more money in the second quarter than in the first because of slowing demand. The Swedish company forecast a pretax loss of at least 4.9 billion kronor ($485 million) this quarter. The cuts bring reductions this year to 14,000, or 13 percent of Ericsson's staff. The company posted a first-quarter loss from operations - the first in nine years.

Brand name didn't matter when John Carruth bought his latest mobile phone in early November.Features? Also unimportant. Twenty-four hours into owning his new Nokia phone, this Dallas telecom engineer saw little or no fundamental difference from his old Ericsson. Just one thing counted, Carruth said. "It was the phone that came with the special deal."Ahhh, that special deal.AT&T Wireless' flagship Digital One Rate plan, which set a new standard for how mobile phone calls are priced, has also made Finland's Nokia the hottest mobile phone manufacturer in the United States.

Pettitte files for free agency baseball New York Yankees left-hander Andy Pettitte filed for free agency yesterday after repeatedly saying he hopes to return to the club next year. Pettitte went 14-14 last season with a 4.54 ERA - his highest ERA since 1999. General manager Brian Cashman said last week that he wants Pettitte to return next season, but the 36-year-old veteran said Friday night that he hadn't heard from the team. Pettitte likely would have to agree to a cut from his $16 million salary last season, when he was 2-7 with a 6.23 ERA in his final 11 starts, and missed his last turn because of a sore pitching shoulder.

What more could you want if you're a sports fan in South Florida? The two most dominant athletes in professional sports both were in the Miami area over the weekend for major events. Tiger Woods quickly took control of the World Golf Championships at Doral, and Roger Federer cruised to victory in his first match Saturday in the two-week Sony Ericsson Open at Key Biscayne. If you were looking for a giant-killer, you were better off going to Jupiter, where the Orioles defeated the defending world champion St. Louis Cardinals, 6-5, yesterday.

The coolest sporting event in South Florida this week is the Sony Ericsson Open, the popular pro tennis event in Key Biscayne. The tournament has been spiced up this year with something called Night Tennis, which is basically a glitzy downtown exhibition that features players in glow-in-the-dark clothing competing under black lights on a court that will open up to an all-night party that is free to the public tonight and tomorrow. The tournament is no slouch either, featuring just about every big name in professional tennis.

Like a hired gunslinger brought in to tame the town, the winner of the previous Volvo Ocean Race will be back for this year's competition to handle the newest challenge in the around-the-world race. John Kostecki, who skippered illbruck Challenge to victory in 2001-02, will be tactician aboard Ericsson Racing Team for the seven in-port races, which count toward each boat's total score. In-port races require sailors to take muscular sloops built to plow through the heavy seas of the Southern Ocean and turn them into highly maneuverable racing machines able to negotiate such narrow, shallow waters as the Chesapeake Bay. "It's a pretty big difference," Kostecki said of the addition of in-port races.

The last of the Volvo Ocean Race yachts under sail arrived yesterday morning after a grueling slog up the Chesapeake Bay. ABN Amro Two, the sister of the winner of the 5,000-mile Rio de Janeiro-to-Baltimore leg, crossed the finish line at Baltimore Light at 10:41, for an elapsed time of 15 days, 22 hours, 31 minutes and 59 seconds. The crew of young sailors overcame a major equipment malfunction late in the race to finish under wind power. But by bringing up the rear, the second Dutch boat was pushed out of second place overall to third place.

After a dismal showing and several days of vague finger-pointing, the Ericsson Racing Team has replaced its skipper with American racing star John Kostecki for the next leg of the Volvo Ocean Race. Kostecki, who won the 2001-02 Volvo race, replaces Neal McDonald, another Volvo veteran, who will remain on board as watch captain and co-skipper on the leg from Rio de Janeiro to Baltimore. The Ericsson boat, built from the same mold as the Pirates of the Caribbean, has not enjoyed the same level of success as its sister.
