Wide receiver Isaiah Zuber reverted to the New England Patriots’ practice squad on Tuesday, according to the NFL transaction wire.
The undrafted rookie had been designated as a Covid-19 replacement in the hours leading up to New England’s matchup with the Kansas City Chiefs at Arrowhead Stadium.
The 26-10 loss marked Zuber’s second consecutive week on the gameday roster for the Patriots. And after playing six offensive snaps in his debut as a standard elevation, he played an additional nine on a night in which Gunner Olszewski returned from injured reserve and Jakobi Meyers was inactive.
Zuber has rushed for 21 yards on a pair of end-arounds for New England. The 23-year-old by way of Kansas State and Mississippi State originally arrived in April, and was waived and re-signed during the early stages of training camp in August.
Zuber is joined on the current scout team by fellow wideouts in Kristian Wilkerson and Devin Ross as the calendar turns to the Denver Broncos.
Kickoff is set for 4:25 p.m. ET next Sunday at Gillette Stadium.
