The New England Patriots announced Monday they have waived running back Joey Iosefa.
Iosefa, 24, was signed from the practice squad to the 53-man roster on December 19. He played in the last two games, totaling 15 carries for 51 yards in the first before seeing just three offensive snaps Sunday.
The 6-foot, 245-pounder, was originally signed to the New England practice squad in October. He was drafted by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in the seventh round out of Hawaii in 2015 and was released by Tampa Bay at the end of August.
