Patriots Place TE Visanthe Shiancoe On Short-Term IR
Tight end Visanthe Shiancoe has been placed on injured reserve with the designation that he can return this season, according to CSNNE.com, Jeff Howe of the Boston Herald reports. Under the new rule, Shiancoe can begin practicing with the team three weeks from today, and he can return to game action in eight weeks. Since the Patriots have a bye in Week 9, Shiancoe’s first game back could be Week 10 against the Bills.
Earlier today the Patriots signed tight end Michael Hoomanawanui off the Redskins’ practice squad.
The report also indicated tight end Kellen Winslow did not pass his physical with the Patriots due to a knee ailment.
