Jones was placed on injured reserve with a hamstring injury ahead of Week 1. He’s set to make his season debut on Sunday against the Bills.
Davis began training camp on the PUP list and is also set to make his season debut. The Patriots made room on the roster Thursday when they waived rookie cornerback/special teamer Ameer Speed, who was claimed Friday by the Colts.
Reiff began the season on injured reserve with a knee injury suffered in the preseason. He played in one game and suffered a new knee injury. He’ll miss at least four games with the new ailment.
This will be Reagor’s third time being elevated from the practice squad. The 2020 first-round pick has yet to be targeted. Hill, a 2019 second-round pick, is set to make his Patriots debut.
