Rookie DE Francis passes physical

7/21/2012

New England Patriots defensive end Justin Francis passed his physical on Friday and was removed from the active/non-football injury list, according to a source.

The undrafted free agent was among five Patriots rookies who failed physicals upon reporting to the team on Thursday. One of them, wide receiver Matt Roark, was released Friday.

Three Patriots rookies have yet to pass their physicals: wide receiver Jeremy Ebert (leg), and offensive linemen Jeremiah Warren (unknown) and Markus Zusevics (pectoral).
