The New England Patriots’ 53-man roster returned to capacity on Wednesday.

The organization announced the signing of rookie cornerback Myles Bryant from the practice squad amid a series of moves.

Bryant, 22, had arrived as undrafted free agent out of the University of Washington in the spring. The corner appeared in 49 games as a member of the Huskies. His tenure spanned 114 tackles, 4.5 sacks, four interceptions, three forced fumbles, two fumble recoveries and one touchdown. And as a senior last fall, Bryant earned second-team All-Pac-12 honors.

New England’s signing of kicker Nick Folk to the active roster would also be made official on Wednesday.

Folk, 35, was a standard elevation from the practice squad ahead of the season opener against the Miami Dolphins. He reverted on Monday after going 3-of-3 on extra points and missing his lone attempted field goal.

Those promotions left the Patriots with a pair of openings on the 16-man scout team. Quarterback Jake Dolegala and offensive lineman James Ferentz have since signed.

Dolegala, 23, spent 2019 with the Cincinnati Bengals as a rookie free agent out of Central Connecticut State. And Ferentz, a 31-year-old Iowa product, made the first two starts of his career last campaign with the Patriots.

New England will face the Seattle Seahawks at CenturyLink Field on Sunday. Kickoff is set for 8:20 p.m. ET.
