FOXBOROUGH — With three practices under his belt now after re-signing with the Patriots Wednesday, receiver Austin Collie said he’s healthy and thrilled to be back with the team.
“I was crossing my fingers, because I love it here. It’s a great team, great organization, great coaching staff,” Collie said Friday after the team’s final practice before facing Cleveland Sunday at Gillette Stadium. “It’s awesome.”
Collie was released Nov. 5 after playing four games with the Patriots and catching three passes for 34 yards. But he injured his knee in the Nov. 3 win over the Steelers, a development that played a factor in his release.
The time away gave Collie an opportunity to heal. Full story for BostonGlobe.com subscribers.
