Patriots defensive back Ross Ventrone, who was waived by the team on Monday, has cleared waivers and has cleared waivers and is headed to the team's injured reserve list. This is according to ESPN Boston's Mike Reiss.
Ventrone was just one of several defensive backs that were moved to injured reserve by the Patriots. Will Allen and Josh Barrett were both placed on IR yesterday.
Ventrone, as you all should remember, is most famous for the many roster transactions he was involved with during last season. He spent time on both the practice squad and the active roster. Amazingly enough, he still has practice squad eligibility.
While he has been sidelined with an undisclosed injury as of late, Ventrone could return to the Patriots when he becomes healthy. The team can work out an injury settlement with him, which would make him a free agent and could allow him to return to the Patriots.
So even though he's technically on IR right now, don't be surprised if he breaks his own record for roster transactions this season.
