Patriots injury update

Posted by Chris Brown on November 5, 2008 – 9:37 pm

Not practicing for the Patriots on Wednesday was RB Sammy Morris (knee), CB Lewis Sanders (hamstring) and CB Terrence Wheatley (wrist).

Limited in practice are LB Eric Alexander (hamstring), CB Ellis Hobbs (shoulder), RB LaMont Jordan (calf), WR Randy Moss (foot), WR Matthew Slater (ankle) and NT Vince Wilfork (toe).

With all the nicked up cornerbacks on the roster, the Pats re-signed CB Jason Webster, who they had originally signed in the offseason. They put rookie LB Shawn Crable on I-R to make room for the former Bills defensive back, that was injured in Week 1 of the 2007 season and put on I-R.

Pats re-sign CB Jason Webster

Posted by Chris Brown on November 5, 2008 – 5:57 pm

With their left cornerback position a revolving door due to injury the Patriots signed former Bills cornerback Jason Webster for depth and to possibly play slot corner this week. Webster was originally signed by the Patriots this past offseason, but was released near the end of training camp.

The Patriots apparently liked what Webster offered in the slot and the Colts took advantage of New England’s slot corners (Jonathan Wilhite, Mike Richardson) this past Sunday night as Anthony Gonzalez chewed them up.

The Patriots had veteran Lewis Sanders start the season at LCB, but he lost the job to Deltha O’Neal who in turn lost it to rookie Terrence Wheatley. But last week Wheatley suffered a hand injury and might not be available this week. O’Neal is expected to start at LCB again if Wheatley can’t go for the Pats on Sunday.

To make room on the roster for Webster, the Patriots put LB Shawn Crable on I-R. He had been dealing with a shin injury.
