FOXBORO, Mass. -- The New England Patriots have placed cornerback Jonathan Wilhite on injured reserve with a hamstring injury.

Wilhite registered 24 tackles while playing in the first nine games of the season in a reserve role.

To fill the roster spot, the AFC-leading Patriots signed defensive lineman Louis Leonard, who appeared in two games for the Carolina Panthers before being released in late September.
