FOXBOROUGH -- Before even getting an opportunity to play in a game, receiver LaQuan Williams has been released by the Patriots. He signed with team Nov. 5, two days after the Patriots' most recent game, a win over Pittsburgh.

A Baltimore Sun report earlier this week said that Williams is facing a civil suit stemming from an alleged altercation in June. Williams had played for the Ravens the past two seasons, and was released by Baltimore on Sept. 6.

Williams wasn't spotted at Friday's practice, but he's no longer on the team. Safety Steve Gregory is on the team, but also wasn't spotted. Gregory broke his thumb against the Steelers, and missed Thursday's practice, as well. Players were in sweats (or shorts, since it's nice out) and shells on the lower grass practice field.
