The New England Patriots activated the starting center David Andrews from an injured reserve on Saturday.
The Patriots also picked up a defensive end of Tashaun Bauer (standard) and defensive fights with Nick Thurman (COVID-19 replacement) from the training team. Bower and Thurman will return to the training squad automatically on Monday.
Andrews was placed in an injured reserve with a hand injury a week ago. He had to miss three games before being activated.
Andrews, backback Josh Uche and defensive wrestlers Bo Allen returned to training this week and have been set to return to injury. However, Uche and Alan were not activated this week.
Bauer, who could make his Patriots debut, serves as insurance in the event that Derek Rivers, who is suspected of a back injury, cannot play Week 7 against the San Francisco 49ers.
