Patriots put Tommy Kelly on injured reserve


The Patriots put defensive tackle Tommy Kelly on injured reserve on Saturday, the club said.

To replace Kelly on the roster, the Patriots promoted rookie offensive lineman Josh Kline from the practice squad. Kline was on the Patriots’ Week One roster but has been on the practice squad for the bulk of the season.

Kelly (6-6, 310) appeared in five games for the Patriots this season, recording 22 tackles and 2.5 sacks. He has missed the last three games.

Kelly, 32, has notched 441 tackles and 36.5 sacks in regular-season play since entering the NFL in 2004 with Oakland. He played the previous nine seasons with the Raiders.

  1. Another week, another Patriot lost for the year due to injury.

    I won’t ask when it ends. I already know. When they aren’t playing anymore.

    Bell is going to run wild on that patchwork D.
    When the Pats are up 21-0 before the half,Bell
    can run as much as he wants.

  3. Another starter on D gone for the year. Man, it’s been bad this year.

    I thought he was getting better and people were saying he might be able to come back after the bye. Apparently people don’t know what they are talking about.

    I hope they keep that Defensive style for the Steelers that they used on the Phins in the second half last week. It was terrorizing the O-line and the QB. With the Steelers relatively weak O-line right now, I think it could do pretty well.
