Once activated off the suspension list, New England waived Watson.

When the Patriots released Watson on October 7, head coach Bill Belichick said the team didn't have a roster spot for him upon his return from a four-game National Football League suspension for performance-enhancing drugs.

That has obviously changed in the light of a number of injuries to New England's offense.

Watson's return fills an open roster spot as Patriots fullback Jakob Johnson was placed on injured reserve after the team's win over the New York Giants on Thursday. Even before the game kicked off, New England was down a number of offensive starters, including David Andrews, Isaiah Wynn, Rex Burkhead, Phillip Dorsett, N'Keal Harry, and James Develin.

Per USA Today's Henry McKenna, Harry is set to return to practice this week.

Their next game will be next Monday against the AFC East rival New York Jets. And yet he's returning to the team this week, according to ESPN's Field Yates. But with numerous injuries at the receiver position, the Patriots are bringing back a familiar face at tight end to augment the passing game.

Watson won't be the only addition to the Patriots receiving corps this week. If they thought he'd be a major force, they would have kept him, particularly because New England's tight end group features mostly unproven players in Matt LaCosse and Ryan Izzo.

Watson, 38, was in camp with the Patriots but did not play in a game and was released last week after serving a four-game suspension because of a violation of the NFL's performance-enhancing drugs policy.
