With Mankins Hurt, Patriots Sign Petrus
Petrus, a 2010 fifth-round pick of the New York Giants in the 2010 NFL Draft (147th overall), was released on Nov. 3 by the G-men. He appeared in 23 NFL games since turning pro.
The 6-foot-3, 315 pound Arkansas product was signed to shore up New England's offensive line, which has been battered by injuries. Both of New England's starting guards (Logan Mankins and Dan Connolly) left Sunday's game against Buffalo. Mankins has been fighitng leg injuries, and appeared to suffer another when he was caught in a pilup. Connolly left the game with a back issue.
Donald Thomas filled in for Connolly at RG while Nick McDonald filled in for Mankins on the left side. Petrus figures to remain as a reserve for now.
In addition to the Petrus move, the Patriots signed Tarpinian to the practice squad after he cleared waivers. To make room, the team released LB Jerrell Harris.
