FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) -- The New England Patriots have put
running back Laurence Maroney on injured reserve with a shoulder
injury, ending his season.
The team also activated offensive lineman Stephen Neal before
Monday night's game against the Denver Broncos and signed
cornerback Mike Richardson from the practice squad. To make room,
the Patriots released offensive lineman Dan Connolly.
Maroney was a first-round draft pick in 2006 who ran for 835
yards last season, but has struggled so far this season. He played
in three games and totaled 93 yards on 28 rushes.
