The New England Patriots have placed defensive lineman Mike Wright on injured reserve because of his second concussion in 10 months. Wright missed the last six games last season, plus the Patriots playoff game, after facing Indianapolis last Nov. 21 but still led New England with 5 1/2 sacks. He was hurt again Sept. 12 in the season opener at Miami and was inactive for the last four games. He originally signed with the Patriots in 2005 as an undrafted free agent out of Cincinnati and developed into a solid player, starting 16 of the 42 games he played the past three seasons with 13 sacks. Also Thursday, the Patriots re-signed defensive back Phillip Adams. They first signed him Sept. 21 but he didn't play before being released last Saturday.
