FOXBOROUGH -- There was a lot of news coming from Patriots practice on Tuesday.

Listen to your team news NOW.

For starters, rookie wide out N'Keal Harry was present, meaning he is one of the Patriots' two players designated to come off injured reserve. Harry can first appear in a game Nov. 3 against the Ravens. He was placed on IR before the start of the season after dealing with a leg/ankle/foot injury since the early stages of the preseason.

The Patriots have one more player who can come off IR, and that seems likely to be offensive tackle Isaiah Wynn. This would mean James Develin and Jakob Johnson will be done for the year.

In addition, Cody Kessler, Josh Gordon, Matt LaCosse and Michael Bennett were not spotted, and new tight ends Benjamin Watson and Eric Tomlinson were spotted.

The team had an open spot with the Johnson to IR move, so that could go to Tomlinson/Watson, and the other is likely Kessler being cut. Gordon was injured in the last game against the Giants, but Bennett is interesting. He did not appear hurt last week and played a season-low 13 snaps.

Lastly, there was a great deal of movement on the practice squad with a number of new players that will likely be announced later in the day. There was a new wide receiver, No. 17, and also kicker Younghoe Koo has been let go.

Injured players Dont'a Hightower, Patrick Chung, Phillip Dorsett and Rex Burkhead were present.

Since it is Tuesday, there will be no injury report. The Patriots will take on the Jets next Monday night.
