FOXBORO - The hamstring injury that landed Deion Branch on the Patriots injury report Friday forced the Pats to make a move on Saturday.

With Branch looking very questionable to play, New England opted to release the veteran and activate Greg Salas in his place.

The Patriots also activated cornerback Aqib Talib and released corner Malcolm Williams on Saturday.

Branch will quite likely be back with the team once his hamstring comes around.
