After another concussion ends Mike Wright’s season, could his career be over? (FILE:Icon/SMI)
The New England Patriots announced today that defensive lineman Mike Wright has been placed on injured reserve and defensive back Phillip Adams has been signed to the 53-man roster.
Wright, who was on injured reserved for the majority of last season, will now be out the rest of the season due to a concussion.
Although, there is a more serious issue at hand. Is this career-threaatening? I believe it could be. In any case, terrible news for a great guy and versatile player.
Replacing Wright on the active 53-man roster, is defensive back Phillip Adams. Adams, who was just released by New England on Oct. 8, rejoins the team in light of Wright’s unfortunate injury. The 5-11 and 192 pound DB should provide more depth for a Pats secondary who is facing an explosive Dallas Cowboys offense on Sunday afternoon.
