OLB Crable returns to practice squad

By Mike Reiss

The Patriots have signed outside linebacker Shawn Crable to their practice squad.

Crable, a third-round draft choice of the Patriots in 2008, was waived by the team prior to the start of training camp and had not been picked up by another club.

He adds depth and knowledge of the defensive system at an outside linebacker spot that is a question mark for the club, with veteran Derrick Burgess having been released on Saturday.
