Photo: Tyquan Thornton teases potential return to Patriots’ active roster

The New England Patriots can start designating players to return from injured reserve starting this week, and it appears one candidate might indeed be close to a comeback. After missing the first four games with a shoulder injury, second-year wide receiver Tyquan Thornton is apparently working out at the moment if a post on his Instagram account is to be believed.

A sign of things to come? It sure looks that way. For what it’s worth, the Patriots currently have one open spot on their 53-man team — one possibly held open for the speedy wide receiver who was selected in the second round of the draft just a year ago.
