FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) – The New England Patriots have released linebacker Bo Ruud, who spent his entire rookie season on the team’s injured reserve list.

Ruud, a three-year starter at Nebraska, was selected by the Patriots in the sixth round of the 2008 NFL draft.

He injured his ankle in training camp and missed the regular season.

Ruud’s father, Tom, played five years in the NFL, and his brother Barrett is a linebacker for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
