Patriots sign WR Donte Moncrief, DL Ryan Glasgow to practice squad


The New England Patriots announced Wednesday they have signed wide receiver Donte Moncrief and defensive lineman Ryan Glasgow to their practice squad.

Moncrief last played for the Pittsburgh Steelers in 2019. He tallied four receptions for 18 yards in five games.

The 27-year-old wideout has caught 204 passes for 2,561 yards and 21 touchdowns in 74 career games over six pro seasons. He was a third-round draft pick of the Indianapolis Colts in 2014.

Glasgow has played all three of his pro seasons with the Cincinnati Bengals, who selected him in the fourth round of the 2017 NFL Draft.

The Patriots also acquired Miami Dolphins wide receiver Isaiah Ford before Tuesday's NFL trade deadline for a conditional 2022 sixth-round draft pick. 

The additions of Moncrief and Ford provide much-needed depth to a Patriots roster that's been hit hard by injuries at wide receiver. Julian Edelman is on injured reserve after undergoing a knee procedure last week, and N'Keal Harry is dealing with a concussion. Neither wideout played in Sunday's Week 8 loss to the Buffalo Bills.
