OL Marcus Cannon to be added to active roster

Patriots offensive lineman Marcus Cannon will be added to the active roster today, Patriots coach Bill Belichick said.

The Patriots have not determined a corresponding move, but the team has until this afternoon to make everything official.

“I would expect that by 4 p.m., we’ll make that decision and bring him on to the roster,” Belichick said.

Cannon, who was drafted by the Patriots in the fifth round out of TCU, was diagnosed with non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma earlier this year. He was given a series of treatments and was cleared to return to football months later. Cannon began the season on the non-football injury related list and waited a little more than six weeks before he was allowed to practice.

Today is the deadline for the Patriots to make a decision about his roster status.
