Patriots address decision to add RB Jonas Gray to active roster
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Patriots coach Bill Belichick addressed the decision to promote running back Jonas Gray from the practice squad and the opportunity that he'll get moving forward with Stevan Ridley out for the remainder of the season, per ESPN.

Gray was added to the live rosters hours before Week 7 against the Jets and emerged as the team's second option behind Shane Vereen on Thursday night. He rushed for 12 yards on three carries.

"I think Jonas has been solid for us all the way through preseason," Belichick said. "He's done a good job in practice and got an opportunity last night -- not a lot of opportunities -- but he had some blitz pickup opportunities and a few carries. He works hard and he's a tough kid, a bigger back obviously -- more in the Ridley size range."

Belichick would not indicate whether Gray would be used as the team's second option in the ground game moving forward.

by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Patriots kicker Stephen Gostkowski hit two field goals Thursday against the Jets.

Gostkowski didn't get much action until the end of the second quarter. With time running out, he hit a 39 yard field goal to close out the half. He would also add a 36 yard field goal during the third quarter. Gostkowski also managed to hit three extra points during the contest.

He'll look for more Week 8 against the Bears.

Patriots' backup pass-catchers contribute Thursday
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

The Patriots received contributions from a number of players Week 7 against the Jets.

Brandon LaFell led the way, hauling in four passes for 55 yards. He finished third on the team in yardage, and was targeted five times. Danny Amendola caught one pass, but made it count. In the fourth quarter, Amendola scored on a 19 yard reception from Tom Brady. Amendola should have had a better game, but had a couple catches taken away due to penalties. Brandon Bolden also caught one ball for 4 yards. 

They'll look for more Week 8 against the Bears.

Patriots' Julian Edelman catches four passes Thursday
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Patriots wideout Julian Edelman hauled in four passes Thursday against the Jets.

Edelman finished with just 44, which ranked fourth on the club. He was targeted nine times, which was second behind Rob Gronkowski. Tom Brady was able to spread the ball around to a number of offensive players, which helped lead to Edelman having a less-than-stellar yardage game.

He'll look for more Week 8 against Chicago.

Patriots' Rob Gronkowski contributes Thursday
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski didn't have a great game Thursday, but was still a big part of the team's offense.

Gronkowski finished with six receptions for 68 yards. He was targeted a team-high 10 times during the contest. Gronkowski saw a lot of time on the field, indicating that he's close to fully healed after his offseason issues. Backup tight end Tim Wright was not a factor in the game, leaving Gronk as the only threat at the position. Despite receiving a fair amount of targets, the team opted to go to other options in the red zone.

Gronkowski will take on the Bears Week 8.
