Tackle Elvis Fisher and wide receiver Lavasier Tuinei, both released by the New England Patriots yesterday, were officially given the waived/injured designation. According to Field Yates of ESPN Boston, both players have passed through waivers:

A day after being waived/injured by the Patriots, both offensive lineman Elvis Fisher and wide receiver Lavasier Tuinei passed through waivers unclaimed, reverting to the team's injured reserve list, according to a league source.

Neither player will count against the Patriots' 90-man roster. Tuinei, signed on Thursday, was on the practice field for just one session before suffering his injury. Fisher, meanwhile, was originally signed as an undrafted free agent following this year's draft. He had been on the field as recently as Saturday morning during the team's scrimmage, but he did not take part in it, spending part of the practice working on the stationary bike. The nature of each player's injury is not known.

This likely means that this will be the last we hear of both Tuinei and Fisher until after the season. Fisher signed with the Patriots for three years after going undrafted out of Missouri, and will likely get a chance in camp next season.
