TE Visanthe Shiancoe Placed on IR; Winslow Fails Physical

The Patriots made a move on Wednesday as they continue to get ready for opening day, as the team placed tight end Visanthe Shiancoe on the IR/Designated to return, meaning he can come back later in the year if he recovers.

The team did try out former Browns and Bucs TE Kellen Winslow, but he failed his physical because of his bad right knee, which has bothered him from way back in his days with Cleveland.

For now, new tight end Michael Hoomanawanui will take the spot for Shiancoe.
