Free agent cornerback Bradley Fletcher, who visited the Patriots on Tuesday, is signing with the team, reports ESPN.com. It's a one-year deal worth up to $2.5 million, according to the National Football Post.
Three injured players have been placed on the inactive list by the Patriots for their season opener Thursday night against Pittsburgh. They are running back Travaris Cadet (hamstring), defensive lineman Trey Flowers (knee) and safety Tavon Wilson (quad).
Jets head coach Todd Bowles said after Sunday's game against the Dolphins in London that he was "not sure yet" about the severity of running back Bilal Powell's groin injury, NJ.com reports.
Powell left the game in the second quarter due to the injury and did not return. The Jets will fly back to the States on Sunday and Powell will be evaluated in the coming week to help determine if he will miss any time. Thankfully for the Jets, they are off in Week 5, giving Powell extra time to recover.
