The Patriots promoted offensive lineman Josh Kline from their practice squad to the 53-player roster on Saturday, the club said.
Kline, 23, started the Patriots’ final 2013 preseason game at left guard. New England waived him on Monday but re-signed him to the practice squad on Wednesday.
New England also confirmed the re-signing of running back/returner Leon Washington, which was reported earlier in the day.
With Kline and Washington added to the roster, the Patriots waived defensive lineman A.J. Francis. The Pats also re-signed offensive lineman Braxston Cave, whom they waived Thursday, to their practice squad.
