Foxboro, MA (Sports Network) - The New England Patriots placed Donte' Stallworth on injured reserve one week after signing the veteran wide receiver.
Stallworth was signed on Dec. 4 to fill the void left by the injury to Julian Edelman, and caught a 63-yard touchdown pass in Monday night's win over the Houston Texans. But Stallworth suffered an ankle injury during the game and will not play the rest of the season.
The 32-year-old Stallworth attended training camp with New England but was released on Aug. 27. The 10-year vet spent the 2007 season with the Patriots, registering 46 receptions for 697 yards and three touchdowns.
The Patriots also released tight end Visanthe Shiancoe, who failed to record a catch in four games this season. Shiancoe has played nine seasons in the NFL and posted 243 receptions for 2,677 yards and 27 touchdowns.
Offensive lineman Tommie Draheim was also cut from New England's practice squad on Monday.
