Yesterday, Patriots cornerback Chad Scott was placed on injured reserve. Scott, who injured his left knee the first day of practice, was going to help fill the void left by Asante’s holdout. So his injury is a bigger blow than it seems. Now, the Patriots need Asante Samuel, which helps to fill his side of the argument.
The Patriots have actually moved Meriweather down to cornerback, where he has been playing very well, seemingly knocking away anything that comes in his direction.
