The Patriots elevated defensive lineman Marcus Forston from the practice squad Saturday and released defensive lineman Andre Neblett.

The 6-3, 305-pound Forston has been with the Patriots since last season bouncing back and forth between the practice squad and active roster. He performed well at times during the preseason and is going to likely be pressed into action Sunday against the Saints with Tommy Kelly unable to play.

Neblett was signed Wednesday. The 25-year-old played in 30 NFL games with Carolina and was in for 11 Panthers games last year.
