Brandon Spikes cleared to practice, McDonald put on PUP

In addition to the Patriots placing Brian Waters on the reserve/did not report list — meaning he doesn’t presently count against the 90-man roster limit — linebacker Brandon Spikes came off the physically unable to perform list after passing his physical, and reserve center/guard Nick McDonald was placed on the PUP list, according to a league source.

Wouldn’t read too much into the Waters transaction. It’s procedural and if he didn’t report, I don’t think the team has a choice.
