Patriots Stallworth On IR, Shiancoe Released
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.
