Patriots signed LB Jonathan Freeny to a two-year extension through 2018.

Freeny is not a big factor on defense, but he is a solid special teamer and good depth at linebacker. He will back up Jamie Collins this season.

Patriots LB Jonathan Freeny dislocated his thumb and "part of his wrist" Sunday night against the Texans.

We are not sure how one goes about dislocating only part of the wrist, but it somehow sounds even more painful. Freeny is unlikely to play this week, but the Patriots "hope" he can return this season. Jerod Mayo should see more snaps with Freeny sidelined.
