Veteran running back Ty Montgomery is back on the Patriots’ active roster.
Saturday’s NFL transaction wire shows the Pats have released Montgomery from the practice squad. He fills the roster spot for cornerback Jack Jones, who has been placed on injured reserve.
Jones went on the injury report this week with a hamstring issue and was ruled out for the season opener against the Eagles on Friday.
Montgomery played in last season’s opener for New England before spending the rest of the season on injured reserve. He was released as part of his final cuts and signed to the practice squad the next day.
