In a flurry of activity normally reserved for Monday and Tuesday, the Patriots have shuffled the roster around to cope with the devastating injuries to Rodney Harrison, Matt Light and Kevin Faulk.

The New England Patriots made their roster cuts to comply with an NFL mandate to trim rosters to 65 players not including NFL Europe exemptions or those on reserve lists during the week. The team parted ways with three on Monday and seven more on Tuesday. They will have to drop 17 more names according to last count. No player wants to be on that list, so expect a display of desperation by some who are going all out tonight to avoid "the Turk" on Sunday.
