In an effort to shore up the depth along their defensive line, the Patriots are bringing back veteran defensive lineman Gerard Warren, according to a report in The Boston Globe.
Warren was a surprising cut at the end of training camp, but there was much speculation that the team would eventually bring him back at some part of the season. With Albert Haynesworth's availability unknown for this week due to a bad back and a long cross-country flight ahead for the team on Friday, the Patriots have apparently decided that the time is now.
Haynesworth missed Sunday's game in Buffalo with a back injury while Warren has been waiting on a call. Warren, 33, is a 11-year NFL veteran who played in all 16 games with the Patriots in 2010, his first season in New England. Before last year, he spent three years in Oakland, two in Denver and four in Cleveland.
Warren, 6-foot-4 and 330 pounds, began the 2010 season as a starter at defensive...

The Patriots released defensive lineman Landon Cohen on Tuesday. Cohen, 6-foot-3 and 300 pounds, went to training camp with the Patriots this past summer but was released on Sept. 3 before being re-signed on Sept. 21. He played in a reserve role last Sunday at Buffalo. Cohen was originally signed by the Patriots on December 22, 2010 and played in two games with one start, finishing with four tackles. He is a veteran of three NFL seasons after spending time with the Detroit Lions (2008-09), Jacksonville Jaguars (2010) and Patriots (2010). Cohen entered the NFL as a seventh-round draft pick by Detroit in 2008 NFL of Ohio. For more Patriots news, check out weei.com/patriots.
BALTIMORE -- Though out of the Red Sox lineup, catcher Jarrod Saltalamacchia said this afternoon that he is available to play tonight, one day after taking a foul ball off the collarbone in the Red Sox' 6-3 loss to the Orioles on Monday. Despite stiffness and soreness in his right collarbone, Saltalamacchia said that he was confident that he could have started on Tuesday, and that he will be available either to come into Tuesday night's game late or to start on Wednesday.
"I’m definitely available tonight. It’s gotten better. Went out and threw. It was stiff and sore, but I felt OK. I haven’t hit, but I’m definitely available," said Saltalamacchia, who is hitting .235 with a .288 OBP, .450 slugging mark and .737 OPS this year. "I came to the field today expecting to play. Just needed to throw and hit. Went out and threw. Everything went fine with the throwing. It’s just weak, stiff and sore. That’s...
With Jason Varitek (knee) and Jarrod Saltalamacchia (collarbone) both out with injuries, the Red Sox will turn to rookie Ryan Lavarnway to catch starter Erik Bedard in their game against the Orioles Tuesday night at Camden Yards.

The following is the Red Sox lineup against Orioles starter Zach Britton:
Jacoby Ellsbury CF
Dustin Pedroia 2B
David Ortiz DH
Jed Lowrie 3B
Adrian Gonzalez 1B
