Jalen Reagor and Trysten Hill reverted to the New England Patriots’ practice squad on Monday after serving as standard elevations against the Buffalo Bills.

The 29-25 AFC East upset at Gillette Stadium marked the final call-up for the wide receiver and the first call-up for the defensive tackle.

“Jalen has done a good job with the opportunities he’s had,” head coach Bill Belichick said of the former during his Monday video conference. “We’re trying to get all our skill players in the game and give them an opportunity to make some plays.”

Reagor, 24, previously reverted in Week 2 and Week 6. After seeing his initial 14 snaps of the season versus the Las Vegas Raiders, the 5-foot-11, 197-pound TCU standout saw an uptick over fellow wideout Tyquan Thornton on Sunday. He had a hand in 25 downs and turned his lone target into 11 yards. His next appearance would require a 53-man roster transaction. Clearing waivers at the end of August, Reagor signed to the practice squad at its formation. The No. 21 overall pick in the 2020 NFL draft made previous stops with the Philadelphia Eagles and Minnesota Vikings. Across 47 games and 24 starts, he has totaled 73 receptions for 810 yards and four touchdowns to go with a 73-yard punt return TD.

Hill, 25, played four snaps along the defensive line in his Patriots debut. He had signed to New England’s practice squad as the calendar flipped to October following a workout. The Central Florida product has appeared in 31 games, including five starts, since landing with the Dallas Cowboys in the second round of the 2019 NFL draft. His career includes 39 tackles and 1.5 sacks. The Arizona Cardinals claimed Hill off waivers in November of last season, which ended with his placement on injured reserve. The 6-foot-3, 310-pound veteran joined the Cleveland Browns in March and began the fall on the practice squad in Berea.

With the reversions, the practice squad in Foxborough stands back at capacity.

The 2-5 Patriots visit the 5-2 Miami Dolphins next Sunday at Hard Rock Stadium. Kickoff is set for 1 p.m. ET.
