The practice squad stands at an active 14 for the New England Patriots.

Wide receiver Isaiah Zuber and outside linebacker Tashawn Bower reverted from the gameday roster on Monday, according to the transaction wire.

Both had been standard elevations on the eve of New England’s 24-21 loss to the Buffalo Bills in Orchard Park. Both now move back without passing through waivers.

Sunday afternoon marked the fourth NFL appearance for Zuber. The 23-year-old undrafted wideout by way of Kansas State and Mississippi State has played 26 offensive snaps this fall with the Patriots, handling a pair of catches for 29 yards and a pair of carries for 21 yards. He has twice been designated as a standard elevation and twice as a Covid-19 replacement.

And for Bower, Sunday marked his second consecutive week in uniform. The 25-year-old LSU product has recorded five tackles over 46 snaps on defense through that stretch. Bower, who entered the league as rookie free agent in 2017, joined New England’s practice squad last November. Prior to then, Bower posted seven tackles and one sack while a member of the Minnesota Vikings.

Two openings remain on the current scout team.

Leading up to the meeting at Bills Stadium, the Patriots placed tight end Jake Burt on the practice squad-injured list and signed defensive tackle Nick Thurman to the 53-man roster.
