Patriots add DE Silvestro to practice squad

The Patriots re-signed defensive end Alex Silvestro to their practice squad on Wednesday, filling the spot created when linebacker A.J. Edds was signed off the Patriots' practice squad by the Colts today.

Silvestro was signed by the Patriots as an undrafted free agent out of Rutgers and spent the preseason with the team before being waived during final cuts on Sept. 3.

In addition to Silvestro, the Patriots have sixth-round draft choice Markell Carter on the practice squad at defensive end.
