The New England Patriots offensive line is about to receive a huge boost.
UPDATE (Tuesday, Nov. 19 at 5:06 p.m. ET): The Patriots have made Wynn's return and Gunner Olszewski's move to injured reserve official.
--End of Update--
Talented left tackle Isaiah Wynn has been activated to the 53-man roster, the Boston Globe's Jim McBride reported Tuesday. ESPN's Mike Reiss reported earlier in the day the Patriots planned to place rookie wide receiver Gunner Olszewski on injured reserve to create a roster spot for Wynn's return.
The Patriots had until Wednesday to activate Wynn.
Wynn played very well early this season before suffering a foot injury in New England's Week 2 victory over the Miami Dolphins. He went on injured reserve immediately after, giving the Patriots another injury to overcome along the offensive line.

Wynn gave up just 1 hit on 45 pass blocking snaps, giving him a 77.4 Pass Blocking Grade in his limited NFL action. https://t.co/BtnoumPaqv
The second-year left tackle returned to practice on Oct. 30. Wynn, who was one of two first-round draft picks made by the Patriots in 2018, missed all of his 2018 rookie season with a torn Achilles.
The Patriots will host the Dallas Cowboys in Sunday's Week 12 matchup at Gillette Stadium.
