Laurence Maroney placed on IR

These two will be hanging out for the next few weeks.

The Patriots placed running back Laurence Maroney on injured reserve today. Maroney has been plagued by injuries for his whole career with the Patriots, lately a problem with his shoulder.

This leaves the Patriots with a stable of running backs that include Sammy Morris, Lamont Jordan, Heath Evans, and BenJarvus Green-Ellis.

In other news, offensive guard Stephen Neal has been activated from the Physically unable to perform list, while G/C Dan Connolly has been released. Look for Neal to bolster a line that has given up more sacks this year than the Patriots gave up all last year.

    Well Anon, while Maroney didn’t play that well this year, he was the only back with gamebreaking ability. Hope he gets 100% healed for 2009.
