Second-year DL Ron Brace has been placed on injured reserve by the Patriots because of an elbow injury. He played in 13 games with five starts in 2010 and finished the season with 28 total tackles.

DL Lorenzo Washington also has been released from the team's practice squad. He was signed on Nov. 3, 2010, but was never called up to the active roster.

The way we see it

This could be a big blow for the Patriots' D-line for the playoffs if Mike Wright (concussion) and Myron Pryor (back) cannot return. Brace is a good run stopper and has had a solid second season. There is a major lack of depth on the defensive line with Wright and Pryor out. Eric Moore and Landon Cohen have stepped in as reserves, as have rookies Brandon Deaderick and Kyle Love.
