Patriots make series of roster moves ahead of Sunday's game vs. Cardinals


The Patriots made a number of roster moves on Saturday, besides placing three players, including Isaiah Wynn on injured reserve.

They are as follows:

-Placed running back Rex Burkhead, offensive lineman Isaiah Wynn, defensive tackle Carl Davis on injured reserve
-Activated offensive lineman Justin Herron off injured reserve
-Elevated wide receiver Donte Moncrief and defensive tackle Akeem Spence from the practice squad
-Placed tight end Jake Burt on practice squad injured reserve

Rookie tight end Devin Asiasi was not activated, so he remains on injured reserve.

As for Sunday's game against Arizona, the Patriots coaching staff liked the way Moncrief played on special teams, so that earned him a spot on the game day roster for the second straight week. And then activating Spence, who just joined the team, highlights the lack of depth up front.

Kickoff is set for 1 p.m.
