The reinforcements have arrived for the New England Patriots.

According to reporters on the scene, defensive tackle Beau Allen, center David Andrews and linebacker Josh Uche returned from injured reserve on Wednesday. Defensive tackle Byron Cowart, guard Shaq Mason and defensive end Derek Rivers also practiced, which meant they were no longer on the reserve/COVID-19 list.

It wasn’t all good news. Running back James White, offensive tackle Jermaine Eluemunor and center James Ferentz were not present for practice. Eluemunor suffered an injury in Week 6. Ferentz has missed time for non-injury-related issues. White was not listed on the injury report last week, and did not suffer an apparent injury in Week 6.

Allen’s appearance is his first as a Patriot. He has not practiced since signing with the team this offseason. Uche, a 2020 second-round draft choice, went on the injury report this season, and missed a few games before landing on IR. He has yet to see action on game day. And Andrews underwent surgery, which he has apparently recovered from.

New England kicks off against the San Francisco 49ers at 4:25 p.m. on Sunday at Gillette Stadium.
