All-pro DE Richard Seymour, who has missed the first seven games of the year with an injured knee, has been put on the active roster and could play tomorrow against the Redskins.
The Pats released Santonio Holmes the other day to create the roster spot.
My Take: This can only be taken as good news. Whether or not Seymour plays tomorrow – my feeling is he will play sparingly to get ready for next week’s Armageddon vs. Indy (ahhh! Houston!) – is less important that he’s physically ready to at least start practicing. It was unclear through the first six and a half weeks on how significant his injury was. Now that he’s back, the defense will only get better. Jarvis Green has been outstanding in Seymour’s absence and will still be an important piece to the front seven.
