Pats put Tyronne Green on injured reserve, release Kevin Haslam


The Patriots released offensive tackle Kevin Haslam and placed offensive guard Tyronne Green on injured reserve, the club said Thursday.

Both linemen played for the Chargers in 2012 and joined the Patriots in the offseason. Both were considered potential backups for New England, which is now a little thinner on the line entering its second preseason game.

Green, 27, has made 28 career starts. The Patriots re-signed him in July after letting him go in May.

The 26-year-old Haslam started three games for San Diego in 2012.

The Patriots also confirmed they had released wide receiver Michael Jenkins, the news of which had surfaced earlier in the day.

    Even former Chargers are coming up lame. Dr. Chao’s legacy lives on!

    Belichick is often portrayed as heartless, but he tries to early release veterans whom he feels will not make the club. This gives them an opportunity to show their wares to another team in a training camp setting.
