The Patriots released a statement from coach Bill Belichick on the decision to place defensive lineman Mike Wright on injured reserve:
“Mike did everything he could to return and contribute to the team. Unfortunately, we felt the best course of action was to place him on injured reserve at this time.”
Belichick isn't available to the media on Thursdays, but will have his usual press conference tomorrow.
