Patriots have waived RB Tyler Gaffney this afternoon with an Injured/waived designation. If he clears waivers he will revert to IR.

That was the same scenario the Carolina Panthers tried last year with Gaffney. The only problem was the Patriots snatched him off the waiver wire and stashed him on IR for the 2014 season. The hope was he would be healthy this year and be able to contribute.
Unfortunately that doesn't appear to be the case.
