Jerry Remy to miss another week

NESN announced that Jerry Remy will miss the Red Sox games this week. Remy has been out since May 28 because of illness.

Remy wrote on Twitter on May 28 that he was suffering from allergies and would be out for three games. That was followed with an update on June 5 saying he had pneumonia.

There have been no updates on the condition of the broadcaster since.

Remy was treated for lung cancer in 2008 and missed much of the 2009 season recovering. In April, Remy said he was treated for cancer again during spring training.

Jim Rice (Game 1) and Peter Gammons (Game 2) will join Don Orsillo for today’s doubleheader. Tom Caron will work with Orsillo on Wednesday.
