You can expect the Patriots to place him on injured reserve in the coming days and add someone to their roster.
Anderson is having an MRI to confirm if that’s the case, and if so he will be out for the remainder of the season.
Anderson, 30, is a former third-round pick of the Colts back in 2015. He was entering the final year of his rookie deal when he was traded to the Jets in 2018.
He re-signed with New York to a three-year, $25.2 million extension in March of 2019 and was entering the final year of his contract when the Jets released him earlier this offseason.
Anderson then landed with the Patriots on a one-year deal.
In 2021, Anderson appeared in four games for the Patriots and recorded three total tackles with no sacks.
