FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- The New England Patriots released wide receiver Austin Collie for the second time this season on Friday.

Collie, who contributed to the team's Oct. 13 comeback victory over New Orleans, became expendable with rookie receiver Aaron Dobson returning from injury last week and with fellow rookie Kenbrell Thompkins close to a return. Rookie wide receiver Josh Boyce will miss Sunday's regular-season finale with an ankle injury.

Overall this season, Collie had six catches for 63 yards in seven games.

The move came a day after the club released cornerback/special teams player Marquice Cole, with the two moves leaving the active roster at 51 -- two under the limit.

Also Friday, the Patriots signed rookie running back/slot receiver Sam McGuffie to the practice squad and released rookie running back Cierre Wood from the practice squad.

The two additions to the roster for Sunday's game are likely to come from the practice squad. If McGuffie is one of those players, he could make his NFL debut.
