|03.19.13 at 11:17 am ET|
The Patriots have reinstated fullback Placido “Tony” Fiammetta to the active roster.
Fiammetta, who was signed last offseason, was placed on the reserve/left squad list last summer to deal with what was reported by the team as a family issue. He did not play football in 2012.
Fiammetta, 26, is a 6-foot, 250-pounder out of Syracuse who has spent three seasons in the league, one with the Cowboys (2011) and two with the Panthers (2009-2010). His best season came in 2010 when he started a career-high nine games, and finished with seven carries for 22 yards and five catches for 34 yards.
