Just a few days after being released by the New England Patriots, former UConn Huskies offensive lineman Donald Thomas finds himself back in the NFL again.

University of Connecticut's Donald Brown (34) looks to a referee to see if he scored at the end of the second half at Heinz Field in Pittsburgh on Saturday, Sept. 22, 2007. He was ruled just short of a touchdown, but UConn scored on the next play. At left is Pittsburgh's Mike Phillips and at right is UConn's Donald Thomas.With Matt Light suffering an injury in Monday night’s win over the Kansas City Chiefs, the Patriots have re-signed Thomas to the 53-man roster. Stop me if you’ve heard this one about a 1,000 times this season (actually 17th roster move with him) but Ross Ventrone has been released to make room on the roster for Thomas.

Thomas was signed by the Patriots on September 14th and has seen action in four games this season with them.

The former Husky was a sixth round pick of the Miami Dolphins in 2008. He started one game for the Dolphins in 2008 before being placed on injured reserve list. He played in all 16 games, starting 12 of them, for the Dolphins in 2009.
