The Patriots have placed DE Mike Wright on injured reserve with a head injury.
Wright started five games for New England this season, recording a career-high 5½ sacks with 14 tackles. He has been out of action since Week 11.
The way we see it
Wright is the second Pats defensive lineman to be placed on injured reserve this week. DE Ron Brace was placed on I.R. on Monday with an elbow injury. Newly signed DT Atiyyah Ellison will have to help replace the linemen.
