Patriots running back Ty Montgomery injured his ankle in the team’s preseason finale Aug. 26. He returned to play the season opener Sunday, seeing action on 21 offensive snaps and seven on special teams.

But Montgomery now will miss at least the next four games.

The Patriots placed Montgomery on injured reserve Tuesday.

Montgomery caught three passes for 15 yards and a touchdown and had two rushes for minus-2 yards.

The Patriots signed receiver Lil'Jordan Humphrey to the 53-player roster in a corresponding move. Humphrey signed with the team as a free agent in June.

New England cut Humphrey out of the preseason but re-signed him to the practice squad the following day. He played three offensive snaps and one on special teams against the Dolphins after the Patriots activated him off the practice squad for the game.

The Patriots also made the signing of offensive tackle Marcus Cannon to the practice squad official Tuesday.

    Can Lil Jo play QB ?
    That’s Meyers job on trick plays

  2. Lil Jordan is good, wish him the best. He would still be a saint if they weren’t loaded with upper echelon and experiencb recievers.

  3. Bob Kraft paid less than $200MM for the Patriots. The team is now worth $6.4MM (28% higher than 2021) and is the second highest valuation in the NFL. I am sure Kraft has some regrets but hiring Belichick isn’t one of them.

    Kraft has hired two head coaches, Bill and Pete Carroll. Both likely Hall of Fame coaches. Interestingly, Bill let Brady walk and Carrol let Wilson walk. Maybe they know more about coaching than trolls.

    What a mess. Bob Kraft has some serious regrets
    Yeah, 6 Lombardi’s & a 20 year dynasty….. I’m sure he’s all tore up

  5. I thought they were set at receiver with DeVante Parker though? Isn’t that what we heard all off-season? That BB turns one man’s trash into treasure? That he walks on water? That he plays chess instead of checkers? One thing is for sure, he doesn’t win Super Bowls without Tom Brady.

    Haha… I can see him cuddling up with his 6 rings for solace….. you funny

  7. The Patriots are set at receiver, just need Mac to get them the ball when they are NFL open and not college open. At Alabama Mac was throwing to receivers that were wide open and behind probably one the best offensive lines of all time. Now he needs to adjust.

  8. I like Mac Jones a lot but I see what others see with him. The ball floats. It doesn’t zip. He needs to fix that or the Pats need to adjust their offennse to that. Def backfields in the NFL are too fast to have the ball hanging out there like that.
