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