The Patriots roster shuffle continued on Tuesday, as reports say the team has released running back Donald Brown, coming to a deal on an injury settlement.

Brown hasn’t practiced for three weeks due to the undisclosed ailment that sabotaged his fast start to camp. Brown was working with the starters through the opening weekend and looked like he could be a contributor on the ground and through the air.
