Patriots cut Kenbrell Thompkins


One of the many disappointing players on the Patriots’ offense has been released.

Kenbrell Thompkins, a wide receiver who showed promise as a rookie last year but hasn’t done much this year, has been waived. Thompkins has just six catches for 53 yards this season after catching 32 passes for 466 yards last year.

The Patriots also promoted linebacker Ja’Gared Davis from the practice squad, meaning he’ll be eligible to play on Sunday night against the Bengals. New England may need Davis for depth on both defense and special teams.

Those were the only moves the Patriots made today. There was some talk that the team might activate cornerback Brandon Browner and receiver Brian Tyms for Sunday night’s game, but that hasn’t happened and neither will play.
