The Patriots have released rookie DL Alex Silvestro.

The Rutgers product, an undrafted free agent, was promoted off the practice squad before the Patriots played Miami last Saturday. He played a dozen snaps in the game.

If Silvestro clears waivers, he's a candidate to return to the practice squad.

There is no word on who will fill the now-open spot on the roster.
