Updated Patriots Depth Chart With Michael Buchanan going to IR, and the release of Joe Vellano (PS candidate) and Kenbrell Thompkins (claimed by Oakland) to make room for Brandan Browner and Brian Tyms, here’s where we’re at with the roster now. Quite a few injury questions (optimistically leaving Revis and McCourty off) and the depth at defensive end is scary. But hey, how...

The Patriots also placed defensive...

Jamie Collins, Ryan Wendell, Michael Buchanan ruled out for tomorrow's game

According to a tweet at this hour from Ben Volin, the aforementioned players will not play in tomorrow's game against the Vikings due to a thigh injury. As Volin alludes to, the loss of the versatile Jamie Collins leaves the team desperately thin at linebacker. They waived linebacker Darius Fleming today and signed Deontae Skinner from the practice squad. PAGING BRANDON SPIKES...

Patriots Post-Draft Roster Reset: Michael Buchanan To Take Year 2 Jump?

Adding a third pass rusher was thought to be one of the New England Patriots’ biggest needs heading into the 2014 season, but apparently head coach Bill Belichick didn’t agree. The Patriots signed a 10-year veteran with a bum knee and drafted a player coming off a seven-sack season in Division II. That’s not to say that Will Smith or Zach Moore won’t contribute in 2014, but...

Patriots’ Continuity on Defense Helps Rookie Michael Buchanan Adapt Easier

FOXBORO, Mass. — You may not know it from how they’re playing, but the 2013 Patriots defense looks almost identical to last season’s. There’s only one newcomer among the team’s 11 starters and just three newbies in the team’s 14-man rotation on defense. Tommy Kelly is the only new starter this season and rookies Michael Buchanan and Joe Vellano are the only new...

Patriots Sign Seventh-Round Defensive End Michael Buchanan, Only Aaron Dobson Left Unsigned

Michael Buchanan became the sixth Patriots draft pick to sign with the team on Tuesday. The Patriots selected Buchanan in the seventh round (226th overall) of this year’s draft. The 22-year-old defensive end should help add even more depth to an already packed group along the defensive line. Buchanan was a standout as a sophomore at Illinois in 2011, managing 62 tackles and 7 1...
