Patriots sign Shawn Crable to active roster

Just before last week’s game, the Patriots signed former Jet Danny Woodhead.

It was surmised that New England just wanted Woodhead’s information more than his skill set, but the versatile threat remains on the roster.  He may help to fill Kevin Faulk’s role on third downs.

Faulk’s season-ending injury also opened up a roster spot the Patriots filled Saturday with linebacker Shawn Crable.  The 2008 third-round pick was cut back in July, but re-signed to the practice squad recently once he was healthy.

  1. “but re-signed to the practice squad recently once he was healthy”
    Which will last about 3 days until he stubs a toe or takes a hit in practice and is back on injured reserve.

  2. Crable is in his third season and he’s been hurt at the start of every one.
    I would love to see him actually get on the field and show something.
    The NFL is a cruel game and he wouldn’t be the first guy who’s dreams were derailed by injuries but it’s always a sad thing to see.

  3. Crable has been a huge frustration….always injured and not able to play.
    I want to see him play….what’s he got???
    Put him in there and let’s see what he’s got.

  4. He always had the speed and agility to get around tackles…He just couldn’t stay healthy! I hope they throw him out there and see if he can make an impact? Otherwise, keep playing Cunningham!
    Maybe Crable will be used on 3rd downs?
