FOXBORO - Patriots tight end Martellus Bennett, acquired three weeks ago off waivers after being released by Green Bay, was placed on injured reserve today. The move ends his season and he's likely headed for surgery on his shoulder.

Nate Ebner was also placed on IR after injuring his knee on the first drive of Sunday's win over Miami. Ebner executed a fake punt perfectly, running the ball for a first down that extended the drive and ultimately led to a touchdown for New England.
