The New England Patriots have re-signed veteran wide receiver Austin Collie after cutting him last week.

The Patriots placed rookie wide receiver Josh Boyce on injured reserve.

Collie, 28, is in his fifth NFL season after spending four seasons with the Indianapolis Colts.

Collie has six catches for 63 yards in seven games with one start for New England this season.

The 6-foot, 204-pounder originally entered the NFL as a fourth-round draft pick of the Colts and has 179 career receptions for 1,908 yards and 16 touchdowns.
