LaFell has missed the start of the season with a foot injury.
"The only thing I've been doing for the last couple months is just rehabbing and lifting weights. I'm tired of lifting weights. I'm tired of rehabbing," LaFell said Friday, per the Providence Journal. "I'm ready to get back to playing football."
The 28-year-old receiver caught 74 passes for 953 yards with seven touchdowns in his first season with New England in 2014. He will provide Tom Brady with a downfield target to add to the spread aerial attack of Rob Gronkowski, Julian Edelman and Danny Amendola. LaFell is worth an add if he's still on your wire. He had a nice connection with Brady last year and the hope is that continues again this season. He's a bit risky for this week since he could be on a snap count or the team decides to limit him in some way.
