The New England Patriots have placed veteran tight end Martellus Bennett on injured reserve, according to a Monday afternoon report from Jim McBride of the Boston Globe. He'll now get a chance to have shoulder surgery, which was at the center of the unresolved conflict between player and team in Green Bay.

Bennett played through the shoulder injury in a November 12 win over the Denver Broncos, playing seven snaps and recording three catches for 38 yards.

Bennett took to Instagram to lash back at the Packers after he was waived, claiming the team was trying to save money while also accusing Dr. The strong season by Bennett resulted in him being a coveted tight end in free agency, and it was the Packers who gave him a three-year deal worth over $20 million.

With Bennett on IR, the Patriots are left with All-Pro Rob Gronkowski, Dwayne Allen and rookie Jacob Hollister at the tight end position. Bennett caught five touchdowns in the red zone previous year with New England. The next week, he recovered a Rex Burkhead fumble on the opening drive of a win over the Raiders and added two catches for 24 yards.

Ebner finishes the 2017 season with just eight total tackles in nine games played. He had played in just two games with the Patriots hauling in all six passes thrown his way for 53 yards. He had been dealing with a shoulder injury.

That the Patriots had a designed play for the 6-foot-3, 265-pound Allen is one example of the strides he has made since admitting to being disappointed with part of his play in the early part of the season. He was inactive during New England's win over the Miami Dolphins on Sunday.
