Pats add LB

Posted by Chris Brown on September 25, 2010 – 8:08 pm

The Patriots had an open roster spot after placing RB Kevin Faulk on injured reserve this week and they’ve filled that spot prior to Sunday’s game.

New England promoted LB Shawn Crable from their practice squad to the 53-man roster. Crable is a former 2008 draft pick of the Patriots, but has yet to appear in a game for New England as injuries have dominated his career. The Michigan product has been on I-R each of the last two years.

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.
