Roster now at 89 after Stanford release

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- Rookie wide receiver Cole Stanford, who was signed July 27, has been released by the New England Patriots.

Stanford was a longshot to earn a roster spot, but added depth in training camp as the team's numbers at the position were thinned by injuries.

The Patriots' roster is now at 89 players, with one open spot.
