Your Sterling Moore & Marcus Harrison Update
I have to give credit to my man Marcus Harrison. After the Pats signed him yesterday, I predicted he wouldn't ever do anything for New England.
Little did I know that he would turn in what has to be the shortest stay in a Patriots uniform (assuming he ever received one) and that's saying something.
Today, New England released Harrison-a defensive tackle-and promoted cornerback Sterling Moore off the practice squad for tomorrow's game vs. the Dallas Cowboys at Gillette Stadium. An undrafted rookie out of SMU, Moore was signed to the practice squad last week and he will likely see time on special teams. He is now one of six cornerbacks on the 53-man roster.
Releasing Harrison probably means that Kyle Love and Albert Haynesworth will both play tomorrow, they are listed as questionable with back injuries. Jerod Mayo (knee) made a surprise appearance at practice yesterday and he's listed as questionable for tomorrow along with BenJarvus Green-Ellis (toe), Leigh Bodden (thumb) and Ras-I Dowling (hip) among others.
