A spot on the New England Patriots’ practice squad went from one wide receiver to another on Monday.

New England re-signed Mason Kinsey and released Devin Ross, the organization announced.

Kinsey, 22, first joined the scout team of 16 at its formation on Labor Day weekend. The undrafted rookie out of Berry College would be released by the Patriots on Oct. 1 following the arrival of guard Jordan Roos. Listed at 5-foot-10 and 198 pounds, Kinsey spent training camp with the Tennessee Titans after finishing his Division III career with 203 receptions for 3,343 yards and 50 touchdowns. He led the Southern Athletic Association with 65 receptions for 1,221 yards and 16 touchdowns as a senior in 2019.

Ross, 25, signed to New England’s practice squad last fall and was retained on a futures contract following the campaign. The 5-foot-9, 192-pound Colorado product originally entered the league with the Titans as an undrafted free agent in 2018. He agreed to terms with the Philadelphia Eagles during the subsequent offseason. Ross caught 143 passes for 1,643 yards and seven touchdowns while a member of the Buffaloes.

In additional Monday movement, wideout Isaiah Zuber, offensive lineman Caleb Benenoch, defensive tackle Nick Thurman and outside linebacker Rashod Berry reverted to the New England practice squad, according to the transaction wire.

Zuber, Thurman and Berry were activated to the roster as Covid-19 replacements ahead of Week 6 against the Denver Broncos at Gillette Stadium, while Benenoch was designated as a standard elevation. Each of the four return without clearing waivers.

The Patriots are scheduled to host the San Francisco 49ers next Sunday. Kickoff is set for 4:25 p.m. ET.
