As preparation begins for week one opponent, the Houston Texans, the New England Patriots tweak their roster after the 53-man roster deadline has come and gone.

The Pats have signed two wide receivers off the waiver list - Amara Darboh from Seattle and Chad Hansen from the NY Jets.

The team can add those two players by putting TE Ryan Izzo on injured reverse and Julian Edelman on the suspended list.

The Patriots have also signed eight players to their practice squad - OL Cole Croston, QB Danny Etling, OL James Ferentz, DL Trent Harris, WR Riley McCarron, DT Vincent Valentine, RB Ralph Webb and CB Jomal Wiltz. All of these players were with the team for training camp.

NOTE: The Patriots host the Texans in the season opening game on Sunday. Gameday coverage on Sports Radio 92.9 The Ticket begins at 10am.
