FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) -The New England Patriots declared starting guard Stephen Neal and wide receiver Kelley Washington out for Monday night's game at Cincinnati.
Neal has been inactive because of a shoulder injury. Washington is bothered by a hamstring injury.
New England also released tight end Jason Rader from the practice squad reserve/injured list. He was placed on that list on Sept. 25.
The 26-year-old was signed to the practice squad on Sept. 3. The 6-foot-4, 260-pound tight end played in five NFL games with the Miami Dolphins in 2006.
Rader was originally signed by the Atlanta Falcons as an undrafted free agent out of Marshall in 2004. He was waived by Atlanta prior to the 2004 regular season and was signed by the Dolphins the following year.
