FOXBORO, Mass. (AP) – Wide receiver Tim Dwight was activated Monday from the New England Patriots preseason physically unable to perform list.

The team also released nose tackle Ethan Kelley and wide receiver Jake Schifino.

Dwight, who underwent surgery on his right big toe in January, signed as a free agent last March 13 after spending the previous four seasons with San Diego. He participated Monday in his first practice of training camp, which began last Friday.

Dwight, entering his eighth NFL season, is competing for a job as a receiver and kick returner.

Kelley, a seventh-round draft choice of the Patriots in 2003, spent that season on the practice squad and played in one game last season, the season finale against San Francisco.

Schifino, who played 14 games during the past three seasons with Tennessee, signed with New England as a free agent last Jan. 6.
