Patriots activating offseason free-agent signing off NFI list before cuts

The Patriots are activating offensive tackle Calvin Anderson from the non-football illness list Tuesday, ESPN’s Field Yates reported.

Anderson has missed all of training camp on the NFI list and now is set to return to practice less than two weeks ahead of the Patriots’ season opener against the Philadelphia Eagles.

If Anderson had stayed on NFI, then he would have been forced to miss the first four weeks of the season.

Anderson has been a regular at practice wearing sweats. He has not practiced with the team since June during organized team activities and minicamp. There’s no guarantee that he’ll be ready for Week 1, but this move does make him available.
