BOSTON (CBS) — A disappointing career in New England has come to an end for Ras-I Dowling.

The cornerback was released on Wednesday afternoon, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

Dowling, 25, was known more for being on injured reserve than on the field in his two years with the Patriots. The team used a high second-round pick, No. 33 overall, to select him out of Virginia in the 2011 draft.

The cornerback played in just nine games in two seasons, recording seven tackles, zero interceptions and one pass defensed. He had been dealing with injuries throughout this summer’s training camp as well.

The Patriots host the Giants on Thursday night in the preseason finale, with rosters needing to be trimmed to 53 players by Saturday evening.
