Patriots release Wright, Ohrnberger

The Patriots announced today that they released offensive lineman Rich Ohrnberger and defensive lineman Mike Wright.

Wright played in the 2011 season-opener in Miami but suffered a concussion and did not appear in another game. He was inactive for four games before being placed on injured reserve on Oct. 14.

Wright landed with the Patriots as a rookie free agent out of Cincinnati in 2005 and had 174 total tackles and 15.0 sacks in 81 games.

Ohrnberger was placed on injured reserve on Sept. 3 and did not appear in any regular season games last season.

Royer's late goal rallies Red Bulls past Revolution, 2-1


Royer's late goal rallies Red Bulls past Revolution, 2-1

HARRISON, N.J. - Daniel Royer finished a nice sequence in the 74th minute, Luis Robles made a diving save in the closing minutes and the New York Red Bulls rallied to beat the New England Revolution 2-1 on Saturday night.

Felipe sent the ball left to Kemar Lawrence alongside the box and he put a cross to Royer on the back post for an easy finish on his fourth goal.

Robles, who only allowed Lee Nguyen's penalty kick in the ninth minute, preserved the win with his fourth save, diving to his left to block Diego Fagundez's shot from outside the box.

Bradley Wright-Phillips tied it for New York (6-6-2), which was winless in its last four matches, when he pounced on a loose ball and backheeled it into the net. New England goalkeeper Cody Cropper had pounced on a cross by Kemar Lawance, but Cropper could hold on and Wright-Phillips was there to clean up for his sixth goal.

Damien Perrinelle fouled Fagundez in the penalty area after a great pass from Kei Kamara, allowing Nguyen to step up for his sixth goal. New England (4-5-4) had won two straight and lost just one of its previous six. It is 0-5-2 on the road.
