Rookie LB Cox waived/injured

By Mike Rodak

In addition to releasing offensive lineman Mark LeVoir on Wednesday, the Patriots made another, minor roster move, waiving/injured rookie linebacker Christian Cox.

The 25-year old Cox was signed on Aug. 2 as an undrafted rookie free agent out of Utah. He appeared in last Thursday's preseason opener against the Jaguars and suffered an injury after being blindsided on a kickoff return. He left the game and did not appear in practice this week.

Cox will be placed on the Patriots' injured reserve list if he clears waivers.
