The New England Patriots activated wide receiver N’Keal Harry from injured reserve on the eve of Sunday’s matchup with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, as Field Yates of ESPN reported.

Harry, 23, returned to practice on Wednesday, starting the 21-day designation clock after missing the initial three games of the regular season due to a left shoulder injury sustained in August.

The Arizona State product has caught 45 passes for 414 yards and four touchdowns over 21 games since arriving in the first round of the 2019 NFL draft. He now joins fellow wideouts Jakobi Meyers, Nelson Agholor, Kendrick Bourne and Gunner Olszewski on New England’s 53-man roster.

The Patriots carried an open spot after the placement of running back James White on injured reserve with a season-ending hip injury.

In additional Saturday movement, the organization announced the elevations of linebacker Jahlani Tavai and defensive back Myles Bryant from the practice squad.

Tavai, 24, made his Patriots debut last weekend versus the New Orleans Saints after entering the league with the Detroit Lions. The 2019 second-round pick out of Hawaii saw eight snaps on defense and six snaps on special teams in the process.

And Bryant, 23, signed with New England as an undrafted free agent from Washington in 2020. Splitting time between cornerback and safety, he appeared in nine games as a rookie to record 12 tackles and his first career interception.

Kickoff is set for 8:20 p.m. ET at Gillette Stadium.
