Cherry waived

Following allegations of assault stemming from a bar fight, cornerback J'Juan Cherry was waived by the New England Patriots Tuesday morning. Cherry, 22, was drafted in the fourth round of the supplemental draft by the Patriots on Sept. 3, 1999. The 5-foot-11-inch, 200-pound cornerback from Arizona State was signed by the Patriots on Sept. 9 and was activated Sept. 20. He was reported inactive prior to the next three games and was active but did not play in games against Miami (10/17) and Denver (10/24). On Oct. 27, 1999, he was placed on the team's injured reserve list with a hip injury.
