FOXBORO -- The Patriots are now officially down to 75 players. On Tuesday, the team released offensive lineman Keavon Milton, linebacker Ramon Humber and tight end Steven Scheu. They also placed offensive lineman Sebastian Vollmer and running back Dion Lewis on PUP to start the season. This means they can return following Week 6, but not after Week 11. In Vollmer's case, it doesn't look like he will play at all, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. The Patriots will play their fourth and final preseason game Thursday night against the Giants before rosters need to be cut down to the final 53 players by Saturday. For more Patriots news, visit
