FOXBORO -- The Patriots have made a minor roster move ahead of their game Sunday against the Bills.

They have signed defensive tackle Ufomba Kamalu off the practice squad to the active roster and signed offensive tackle Tony Adams to the practice squad. Kamalu takes Josh Gordon's spot on the 53-man roster after he was officially suspended Thursday.

He will give the team more depth on the defensive line that has struggled against the run in the last few weeks. Buffalo comes in with the second-most rushing yards in the entire league over the last five weeks.

Adams signed with the Jaguars as a rookie free agent out of North Carolina State, but was released at the end of training camp.

The Patriots' active roster is back to 53 players and practice squad remains full with 10.
