  • Patriots' Matt Sokol: Elevated to active roster

    The Patriots elevated Sokol to the active roster Saturday.

    The move corresponds with the Patriots placing Hunter Henry (knee) on IR.

Sokol has played two games this season and has not recorded a target over 11 offensive snaps.

  • Matt Sokol: Reverts to practice squad

    The Patriots reverted Sokol to their practice squad Monday.

    The tight end was elevated from the practice squad for each of New England's last two games, but he only ended up playing 11 combined offensive snaps and seeing no targets. It's possible that Sokol will be elevated again if starter Hunter Henry misses a third straight game with a knee injury in Week 18, but Mike Gesicki and Pharaoh Brown are the next two tight ends behind Henry on the depth chart.

  • Patriots' Matt Sokol: Elevated again for Week 17

    The Patriots elevated Sokol from their practice squad to their active roster Saturday, Mike Reiss of ESPN.com reports.

    Last week, Sokol was elevated for the first time this season and played 10 offensive snaps against Denver, finishing the contest without any stats. His elevation for Week 17 comes as starting tight end Hunter Henry is questionable with a knee injury and in danger of missing his second straight game. Even if Henry sits out again Sunday, Sokol isn't likely to log the necessary playing time to be a relevant fantasy option.

  • Matt Sokol: Added to practice squad

    Sokol secured a spot on the Patriots' practice squad Wednesday.

    Sokol bounced back and forth between New England's practice squad and active rosters in 2022, and it looks like he is heading toward a similar situation this year. The team only opted to carry two tight ends on the active roster, which left him on the outside looking in, but there will presumably be opportunities for him to be called up to the active roster as the season progresses.

  • Matt Sokol: Let go by New England

    Sokol was cut by the Patriots on Tuesday.

    Despite signing a reserve/future contract in January, Sokol was let go by the Patriots on Tuesday. The 27-year-old tight end has played in just five games in his career and has failed to record a reception. With the 2023 season approaching, Sokol will now look to carve out a role on a team's practice squad.

  • Patriots' Matt Sokol: Signs new deal with Pats

    New England signed Sokol to a reserve/future contract Tuesday.

    Sokol was claimed off waivers by the Patriots in May before being signed to the team's practice squad. The 26-year-old tight end was then elevated for three games this regular season, including each of the final two weeks. Sokol still did not log a target during the 2022 campaign, and he'll now look to record the first reception of his NFL career heading into the 2023 season.

  • Matt Sokol: Shifts back to practice squad

    Sokol reverted to the Patriots' practice squad Monday, per the NFL's transaction log.

    Sokol was brought up for Sunday's regular-season finale loss to Buffalo with No. 2 tight end Jonnu Smith (concussion) inactive for the second time in as many weeks. However, the practice-squad tight end went without a target for the third game in a row this season, as he played just six offensive snaps behind Hunter Henry, the latter of whom played all 68 offensive snaps. Sokol will now enter the offseason still in search of the first reception of his career.

  • Patriots' Matt Sokol: Brought back up to active roster

    The Patriots elevated Sokol from the practice squad Saturday for Sunday's game against the Bills.

    Sokol will be elevated for the second game in a row to end the 2022 regular season. The 27-year-old was brought up ahead of the Week 17 game against Miami and played 10 offensive snaps in place of Jonnu Smith (concussion), though Sokol did not see a target against the Dolphins. With Smith remaining out Week 18, Sokol should once again serve as New England's only other available tight end behind starter Hunter Henry.

  • Matt Sokol: Put back on practice squad

    The Patriots' reverted Sokol to their practice squad Monday.

    Sokol was brought up to the active roster ahead of Week 17's win over Miami while No. 2 tight end Jonnu Smith sat out with a concussion. Sokol logged 10 snaps against the Dolphins and didn't see any targets. He could be moved up to the active roster again Week 18 if Smith is forced to miss the must-win affair against Buffalo, though the bulk of work at tight end will likely go to Hunter Henry, who tallied 60 snaps and caught five of six targets for 52 yards Week 17.

  • Patriots' Matt Sokol: Elevated for Week 17

    The Patriots elevated Sokol from their practice squad to the active roster Saturday ahead of the Week 17 contest against Miami, Mike Reiss of ESPN.com reports.

    Sokol was previously elevated for the Week 5 win over Detroit, and he played eight offensive snaps in that contest, though he didn't receive any targets or record any stats. Jonnu Smith (concussion) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Dolphins, and Hunter Henry (knee) is questionable, so Sokol could be in line for a healthy dose of snaps.

  • Matt Sokol: Bumped back to practice squad

    Sokol reverted to the Patriots' practice squad following Sunday's 29-0 win over the Lions.

    Sokol was elevated from the practice squad for the first time this season with No. 2 tight end Jonnu Smith (ankle) ruled inactive ahead of Sunday's win over Detroit. As a result, the 26-year-old played eight of New England's 60 offensive snaps behind starter Hunter Henry, though he did not attract a target from starting quarterback Bailey Zappe. Sokol will now be eligible for two more such elevations while on the Patriots' practice squad this season.

    Sokol failed to make the Patriots' initial 53-man roster, but he joined the practice squad after clearing waivers and is in line to make his season debut in Week 5. He'll likely operate as the primary backup to Hunter Henry, with Jonnu Smith (ankle) unlikely to play.

    New England signed Sokol to its practice squad Wednesday, Mike Dussault of the Patriots' official site reports.

    Hunter Henry and Jonnu Smith are entrenched as the Patriots' top two tight end options, but Sokol gives the team an in-house promotion option should added depth be needed at the position as the season progresses.
