The Patriots made a few roster moves a day ahead of taking on the 49ers.
David Andrews has been actvated off injured reserve and added to the 53-man roster, while outside linebacker Tashawn Bower (standard elevation) and defensive lineman Nick Thurman (COVID-19 Replacement) have been elevated from the practice squad.
Josh Uche, who was on injured reserve and returned to practice this week, remains on IR. This doesn't mean he cannot return this season as the team has two more weeks to add him.
Andrews' return will allow the Patriots offensive line to return to somewhat normal.
