Wright played in the season opener at Miami, registering one tackle and a half a sack, but has been inactive for the last four games with concussion symptoms.

Wright, who suffered the concussion during the season opener, also missed the second half of the 2010 season due to a concussion.

To take Wright’s roster spot, New England signed defensive back Phillip Adams has been signed to the 53-man roster. Adams was originally signed by the Patriots on September 21 and was active but did not play in the games at Buffalo or Oakland.
