The Patriots, who had claimed Kyle Eckel off of waivers and placed him on their practice squad, signed him to the active roster today.
UPDATE: Didn’t take long for Kyle to get into a game. He lined up at tailback while the Pats were running out the clock, got three carries, and picked up a first down. He looked good. Now that the Chargers have been Norved and any optimism that I might have had for them has been crushed, I don’t think there’s anything I want more from this NFL season than to see Kyle Eckel with a Super Bowl ring.
