FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) -The New England Patriots activated receiver Troy Brown from the physically unable to perform list on Tuesday, reviving the career of one of the most versatile players from their three Super Bowl victories.
Linebacker Rosevelt Colvin was placed on injured reserve, ending his season. The team also waived defensive lineman Kareem Brown.
The Patriots had to activate Brown, release him or put him on injured reserve by 4 p.m. Tuesday.
Colvin left Sunday night's 31-28 victory over the Philadelphia Eagles and did not return. Although the announcement was that he had a foot injury, it appeared trainers were working on his arm.
``It was announced as a foot? Then we'll leave it with that announcement,'' coach Bill Belichick said Monday, according to the transcript of the news conference released by the team. ``Was that what (we) announced? If that's what (we) announced, then we'll stand by that announcement.''
