Aaron Wilson of Scout.com reports that the Patriots have given offensive lineman Chris Morris an injury settlement, which allowed them to remove him from their reserve/injured list.

The team had announced his release on Saturday.

New England had originally signed him back on August 3rd, but apparently Morris got hurt early in camp.  According to most reports, he suffered a lower left leg injury which kept him out of New England's first preseason game against Jacksonville last week.

Morris was a  former seventh-round draft pick who was taken by the Raiders back in 2006.  He's played in 51 games for the Oakland and Carolina, including 11 starts.
