FOXBOROUGH, MASS. (AP) -- The New England Patriots have placed wide receiver Donte Stallworth on injured reserve with an ankle injury.
The move on Tuesday ended his season after just one game, a 42-14 win
over the Houston Texans on Monday night in which he scored on his only
reception, a 63-yarder from Tom Brady. The Patriots, who had released
Stallworth following training camp, re-signed him on Dec. 4 after wide
receiver Julian Edelman went on injured reserve with a foot injury.
The Patriots did not give details of Stallworth's injury and he did not
mention it as he talked with reporters after the game. In his only full
season in New England in 2007, he had 46 catches then played with the
Cleveland Browns in 2008.
New England also released tight end Visanthe Shiancoe from the roster
and offensive lineman Tommie Draheim from the practice squad.
