Source: Salas returning to practice squad

Wide receiver Greg Salas, who was waived on Tuesday, will return to the Patriots' practice squad, according to a league source.

Salas cleared waivers on Wednesday. The 24-year old was acquired in a Sept. 1 trade for a late-round draft choice in 2015.

He did not play in the regular-season opener and was inactive on Sunday's loss to Arizona.
