Rookie linebacker Dont'a Hightower left Sunday's game in Buffalo with a hamstring injury, leaving the Patriots with nearly as many healthy linebackers as tight ends.

To help alleviate that issue, the team has re-signed Bobby Carpenter, who was signed during free agency and was with the Patriots through training camp.

Defensive lineman Terrell McClain, signed a week ago, was released to make room for Carpenter.

Also, the team announced that OL Thomas Austin has been released from the practice squad.
