Patriots claim OT, place Richard on IR

Some housekeeping moves by the Patriots this afternoon:

  • The Patriots claimed offensive tackle Dustin Waldron from the Dolphins (the same day they signed guard Derek Dennis, who was also waived by Miami). Waldron (6-5, 305 pounds) was undrafted out of Portland State. Like Dennis, Waldron is viewed as a camp body, but Waldron was the better prospect coming out in the draft.
  • The Patriots played C/G Jamey Richard on injured reserve after he sustained a concussion. Expect an injury settlement at some point.
  • C/G Nick McDonald, who was not on the field today, passed his physical to come off of the PUP list.
