    He has been practice player of the week a bunch of times. Wilhite replacement.

    Via his twitter: LINK

    Josina Anderson is a TV reporter in Denver and is pretty well connected there.

    Who's getting the axe then? By my count, Moore has a spot because of the roster exemption for Spikes' suspension, and Wilhite went on IR to make room for Leonard.:confused:

    That release would make the most sense with Law Firm playing well and Taylor fresh and waiting in the wings.

    Re: Rappaport: Pats to promote CB Tony Carter from PS

    We now have 9 defenseive backs, one more than we've been carrying.

    Jackson was brought in in anticipation of Wilhite's being placed on IR.

    If Tony Carter is bring brought up, it could be Jackson or even Sergio Brown that goes, or even someone else being placed on IR.
    ==========

    I expect the transaction to be Jackson or someone moving to IR.

    Could this be anticipating that McCourty will be unavailable for tomorrow's game?

    I think it's more or less about Wilhite going on IR.

    Re: Rappaport: Pats to promote CB Tony Carter from PS

    That would seem the most logical but I am fearful that it will be someone from the d-line (over 290 lbs).

    I look at the current roster....

    Wilfork
    Brace- hurt
    Wright- hurt
    Pryor-hurt
    Leonard
    Warren- hurt, but practiced
    Love
    Deaderick
    Washington (PQ)
    Richards (PQ)

    As it stands right now, the team has 5 healthy D-lineman. BB had 6 earlier in the year on the 45 man roster. Gotta wonder if one will go to IR??

    Re: Rappaport: Pats to promote CB Tony Carter from PS

    I don't envision Sergio Brown being released, the Pats signed him to a 4-yr contract when they promoted him from PS with a bonus as well. I could see one of the DL to IR or one of Ohrenberger, Clayton getting released. It seems that Wright's problem is more serious than a concussion, I think I read he has a neck issue as well. Could be him. Although he would be sorely missed on 3rd down rush package.

    I asked Rap on twitter about where the roster space came from, and he said it is still unclear!

    Maybe a special teams move?

    OT:

    Terrence Wheatley, former Patriot and current Buccaneer, is now on the IR with hamstring issues.
