Rookie tight end Terrence Miller, who signed with the Patriots just three days ago, has been waived by the club with an “injured” designation, according to the NFL’s Wednesday transactions.

If the 22-year-old Miller clears waivers, he’ll revert to injured reserve.

Miller (6-4, 234) caught 40 passes for 467 yards and one touchdown in 2013 for the University of Arizona. He signed with the Jets as undrafted free agent in May but was waived a little more than a month later.

The Patriots now have one open roster spot, which ostensibly will go to ex-Packers defensive lineman Jerel Worthy. With Miller’s removal from the roster, the Patriots have five tight ends and a running back (James Develin) who can be used like a tight end.
