Belichick uncertain on Stallworth's role

FOXBORO -- With Donte' Stallworth back in the mix for the Patriots after being re-signed this week, his role on the team remains uncertain.

Stallworth was released during training camp, but was brought back to replace injured wide receiver Julian Edelman, who was placed on injured reserve with a foot injury.

Belichick said he needs to see Stallworth at practice before distinguishing his role for Monday night's game against the Houston Texans.

"I don't know, we'll see how it goes this week," said Belichick before Wednesday's practice. "We'll see what his role ends up being this week. We haven't seen him for three months, so we'll have him out there at practice, go through some things and see how it goes. We'll do what we think is best for the team for this week."
