Patriots cornerback Ras-I Dowling came into the NFL with talent, but a long record of injuries.
That has not changed now that he’s in the league.
Dowling was placed on injured reserve with what the Patriots called a thigh injury, ending his season.
In two years, the former second-round pick (33rd overall) has played eight games, with two starts. He landed on IR last year after two games, and played in just five games his final year at Virginia.
