Report: Patriots Place Rookie Tight End On Injured Reserve

The New England Patriots are plagued with injuries and this time the team has lost a tight end. The Patriots have placed a rookie tight end on injured reserve.

According to recent reports, Devin Asiasi has “earned” a spot on the Patriots injury reserve. The tight end missed the Week 8 loss to the Buffalo Bills for personal reasons. Asiasi’s close friend has died, and the Patriots haven’t listed him on the injury report in the past few weeks.

In other words, Asiasi was a healthy scratch in Week 7. He saw action in five games this season but didn’t see any targets.

Patriots to replace the rookie tight end

New England has to play with Ryan Izzo and Dalton Keene at their tight end position. Keene was listed as inactive Sunday due to his knee injury. Fullback Jakob Johnson is in the unit, too.

Practice squad tight end Jake Burt ended up on injured reserve as well.

The Patriots signed wide receiver Isaiah Ford in a trade with the Miami Dolphins. They also got defensive tackle Isaiah Mack off waivers from the Tennessee Titans on Tuesday.

The team has made some really bold changes this season, but things don’t look too brilliant for the team. Head coach Bill Belichick has lost four straight games, and this doesn’t look like him at all. Belichick is used to coaching winning teams. NFL analysts say that things have gotten out of control this time. Belichick has never lost four straight games. He was coaching Tom Brady and a group of talented players. Is Cam Newton ready to replace the GOAT? The 2015 NFL MVP struggled in the past couple of weeks. His rusty performance got analysts worried. But, Belichick is confident about his starting quarterback.

The legendary coach will probably make a few more changes throughout the season. Many thought he’d get rid of Stephon Gilmore and get a bunch of talented players. It didn’t happen, and Gilmore is still a Patriot. He will be a Patriots player for a really long time.
