FOXBORO -- Evidentially, he didn't make a good first impression.

The Patriots have released running back Josh Ferguson from the practice squad after just two days of being on it, and replaced him with wide receiver Damoun Patterson.

Patterson was signed by the Steelers as an undrafted free agent this spring, but was released after training camp. The Youngstown State product then spent a month or so on the Tampa Bay practice squad before being released Nov. 6. He played in 26 games over two seasons at Youngstown State and totaled 52 receptions for 1,039 yards and six touchdowns.

Ferguson entered the NFL as an undrafted rookie with the Colts 2016. He made the 53-man roster out of training camp and played in all 16 games, finishing with 15 carries for 20 yards and 20 receptions for 136 yards. He was on and off the active roster in 2017 and then was released by the Colts on Sept. 18 of this year. He also spent a week on the Texans practice squad before coming to New England.

The Patriots practice squad remains full.
