The Patriots have struggled keeping certain offensive players on the field, and just had to put another one on IR.

According to Mike Reiss of ESPN.com, the Patriots have put offensive lineman Brian Schwenke on injured reserve.

Schwenke was with the Patriots in camp, released at final cuts and immediately brought back. He missed last week’s game with a foot injury.

The Patriots also released defensive end Geneo Grissom and offensive lineman Cole Croston, to make room for the previously reported signings of former Ravens linebacker Albert McClellan and safety Obi Melifonwu, according to Field Yates of ESPN.com.

    Schwenke is the type of veteran Belichick likes to have on the roster. When he needs a guy to step in for an injury, he’s got someone who’s been in the trenches before.

  2. Excited to see what these 2 new signings can bring to the team this year….. probably not a whole lot but the added depth & a chance to get coached up durring this season as a precursor to staying with the Pats next year can only help speed up their ability to be useful if & when called upon…..,
    Go Pats!!!!

  3. Does it every matter with them? Some how, some way, the next guy up does the job. I still cant fathom how they do it. Rarely ever do you see Brady having to scramble for his life like so many other QBs do week to week. As amazing as many believe Brady is, that damn organization is so well coached compared to other teams, its beyond amazing.

    Brady almost never scrambles for his life. Instead, he crouched down into a ball and gets leveled. He doesn’t even try to move out of the way. Drives me crazy when it happens. I scream ‘MOVE!’ at the TV but it doesn’t help. Sometimes it seems like he just didn’t get the memo that says you ARE allowed to move and even run to avoid getting hit.

    I think you miss the point. Brady goes down early to protect the ball and protect himself by going down if the pocket collapses and he doesn’t have a lane to throw or space to move. That’s why he almost never throws picks or fumbles or gets seriously hurt. Brady plays “situational football” and will give up a down, even a third down, but not risk giving up the ball to an interception or fumble return as long as there is adequate time and field position to anticipate getting the ball back.

  6. Maybe Brady knows that by taking a sack that way it protects his longevity more than trying to move out the way.Alot of QBs get injured trying to keep the play alive while he just moves on to the next play/series and or game.Win the battle or win the war?

  7. Hang3xc for every guy yelling “move” there’s a guy yelling “don’t run” when they see Brady take off and become a runner eligible to be crushed. Especially the way he runs.

    I’d rather he hit the deck and take the “two hand touch, you’re downed” approach.
