GREEN BAY (AP) -

The New England Patriots have acquired injured lineman Jerel Worthy from the Green Bay Packers in a trade pending a physical for the defensive end.

Worthy's agent, Chafie Fields, says Wednesday that the deal was conditional.

Fields wrote on Twitter Tuesday night, "Will help Pats D-line right away."

Worthy had been placed on the non-football injury list. He spent much of 2013 on injured reserve with a knee injury.

The Packers traded up in the 2012 draft to take Worthy in the second round out of Michigan State. He had 2 1/2 sacks and 23 tackles in 14 games that season, starting four.

Worthy apparently wasn't aware he about to be traded when speaking to reporters Tuesday, saying general manager Ted Thompson "has a great plan for me."

    Badgers prepare for longer camp

    The Badgers football team will unofficially kick off training camp on Friday night. The team will host Family Fun Day from 6-8 p.m. at Camp Randall Stadium. That will be a light-hearted way to start an especially long preseason. The NCAA recently banned two-a-day practices in the football ranks, due to safety concerns. In order to make up for that lost time, the Badgers will be extending the length of training camp by about a week.
