Report: Patriots add Marcus Cannon to reserve/NFI list

08.31.11 at 10:38 pm ET

The Patriots placed rookie offensive lineman Marcus Cannon on the reserve/non-football injury list on Wednesday, according to ESPN Boston. Cannon, who is recovering from non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, cannot play or practice until after Week 6, assuming he’s ready to go at that point.

“He does have some limitations,’€ coach Bill Belichick said of the fifth-round pick earlier this week. ‘€œWhen those limitations are lifted then we’€™ll be able to evaluate him like everybody else and see what he can do without any limitations. Right now, we’€™re just not at the point yet. But I think he’€™s doing well and we’€™re getting closer, but we’re still not there yet.”

The move clears the way for the Patriots to add cornerback Antwaun Molden, who was claimed by the Patriots off waivers earlier on Wednesday.
