The New England Patriots' wide receiver corps has a surprising development less than a month from the start of the regular season.
Jordan Matthews, who the team released earlier this month, could re-enter the team's plans later this season, a source told Giardi. Matthews is currently dealing with a hamstring injury.
With Julian Edelman's four-game suspension to start the season plus the releases of Jordan Matthews and Malcolm Mitchell earlier in training camp, Britt was expected to contribute in the regular season. He dealt with a hamstring injury during camp, however, and did not play in the Patriots' two preseason games.
On his career, Britt has totaled 329 catches for 5,187 yards and 32 touchdowns.
