Patriots RB Tyler Gaffney placed on IR

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- A day after being waived by the New England Patriots, running back Tyler Gaffney went unclaimed and now reverts to the team’s injured reserved list.

Gaffney, 24, remains under contract with the Patriots for 2016 and 2017.

The second-year, 6-foot, 220-pound back originally was claimed off waivers and awarded to the Patriots from Carolina on July 28, 2014.
