Patriots release CB Marquice Cole

September, 27, 2013
The New England Patriots on Friday announced the release of reserve cornerback Marquice Cole.

Cole had been limited this week with a hamstring injury, and this could be a case where the Patriots needed a roster spot and Cole could return when he is back to full health. His primary contributions have come on special teams.

With the open roster spot, the Patriots could eye a promotion from the practice squad, perhaps along the offensive line or with safety Kanorris Davis as a gunner on special teams.
