Patriots LB Dane Fletcher passed through waivers and reverted to the team’s injured reserve list Tuesday.
The Patriots also released WR Britt Davis.
Fletcher was entering his third season. As an undrafted rookie in 2010, Fletcher played in 13 games and notched two sacks. Last season he started five games and appeared in 10, recording 32 tackles.
In the team’s preseason opener, Fletcher tore his ACL.
