The New England Patriots signed Shawn Crable from the practice squad to their 53-man roster Saturday.

The 6-foot-5, 250-pound linebacker fills the roster spot of Kevin Faulk, who was placed on injured reserve Wednesday with a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee. The Patriots face the Buffalo Bills at Gillette Stadium on Sunday.

Crable, who was the Patriots' 2008 third-round draft pick out of Michigan, was re-signed to the Patriots practice squad on Sept. 6 after being released the day before training camp.
