New England activated cornerback Aqib Talib and promoted practice squad wide receiver Greg Salas to the active roster. In turn, the Patriots waived veteran wide receiver Deion Branch and defensive back Malcolm Williams. Linebacker D.J. Williams is on track to make his 2012 debut today against San Diego after Denver put him on its 53-man roster Saturday. Williams returned to practice this week after serving two NFL-mandated suspensions that cost him nine.
