Protective tackle of the Patriots Christian Barmor He seemed close to returning to the field, but the team ruled him out of Sunday’s game and then placed him on injured reserve.
After missing the previous three games, Barmor will have to miss at least four more before he can return.
Barmor injured his knee against the Browns on October 16.
He trained on Wednesday and Thursday as a limited competitor, so it’s possible that Barmor failed.
In a similar move, the Patriots signed offensive lineman Cody Russi to the active roster from the practice team. The team raised Russi twice as insurance while David Andrews recovered from the concussion, but Rassi did not play.
