Mike Reiss of ESPN reports that the Patriots have informed WR Jake Kumerow that he has been released from their practice squad on Thursday.
According to Doug Kyed, it appears as though the Patriots have signed OL Anthony Fabiano to the unit.
The Patriots’ practice squad now consists of:
- OL James Ferentz
- DL Geno Grissom
- WR Cody Hollister
- DB David Jones
- DB Damarius Travis
- CB Ryan Lewis
- DB Jomal Wiltz
- TE Will Tye
- NT Mike Purcell
- OL Anthony Fabiano
Kumerow, 25, originally signed on with the Bengals as an undrafted free agent out of Wisconsin-Whitewater back in 2015. He was on and off the team’s practice squad during his rookie season but returned to the Bengals on a future/reserve contract last January.
Kumerow was, unfortunately, waived with an injury designation during the preseason and he later reverted to their injured reserve list. Cincinnati waived him from injured reserve a few weeks into the regular season.
The Patriots signed Kumerow to their practice squad a few weeks ago.
Kumerow has yet to appear in an NFL game.
Fabiano, 24, wound up signing a three-year, $1.62 million contract with the Ravens as an undrafted free agent out of Harvard back in May of last year. He was, unfortunately, cut loose during the final week of the preseason and later signed on to the Browns’ practice squad.
After being cut by the Browns at the start of the 2017 season, Fabiano had brief stints on the Redskins and Giants’ practice squads.
In 2016, Fabiano was active for four games.
