The Patriots have placed center/guard Brian Schwenke on injured reserve, according to a club announcement. Schwenke missed the last two games with a foot injury, which is presumably the same issue that is ending his season prematurely.
Schwenke, 27, spent his entire career with the Titans until he hooked on with the Pats over the summer. He missed the Pats’ initial cut, but was re-signed on Sept. 4. Despite having 30 games of experience as a starter, he dressed for only three contests this year and was on the field for four snaps in total.
Schwenke has been a backup for the past two seasons. Injuries essentially brought an end to his starting days, with the former 2013 fourth-round pick missing 23 games over his first three seasons. But, he suited up for 16 Titans regular-season games in each of the past two years.
