Wide receiver Julian Edelman was placed on injured reserve with a foot injury by the New England Patriots, who re-signed veteran Donte' Stallworth.
Offensive lineman Mitch Petrus was released from the 53-man roster, while offensive linemen Tommie Draheim and Colin Miller were signed to the Patriots' practice squad.
Edelman was injured in Sunday's victory over the Miami Dolphins. He finishes the 2012 season with 21 receptions for 235 yards and three touchdowns. He also had four carries for 45 yards and 17 punt returns for 263 yards.
Edelman is fifth on the team in receptions despite missing time earlier this season with a hand injury.
Stallworth, 32, spent the 2007 season with the Patriots and was re-signed on March 23 after spending last season with the Washington Redskins. However, he has been out of the league since being released Aug. 27.
Petrus, 25, played in two games as a reserve this season, and also saw action in six games for the New York Giants earlier in 2012 before being released Nov. 3.
