Herron made the Patriots' initial 53-man roster ahead of the 2021 campaign, Mike Dussault of the Patriots' official site reports.
Herron sustained an ankle injury during New England's Week 17 matchup against the Jets last year but appeared in each of the team's three preseason contests this year. He's expected to serve a depth role on the offensive line in 2021.
Herron (ankle) is considered questionable to return to Sunday's game against the Jets, Zack Cox of NESN.com reports.
New England's offensive line has surrendered three sacks as the contest continues late into the fourth quarter, but Cam Newton is enjoying his first multi-passing TD performance of the year with the Patriots carrying a two-possession lead. Should Herron prove unable to return, Jermaine Eluemunor may shift over from right tackle to fill the void on the blindside. Otherwise, Korey Cunningham could be in line for an opportunity at left tackle.
Herron (ankle) was activated from injured reserve Saturday, Jeff Howe of The Athletic reports.
The 25-year-old landed on injured reserve in late October but is rejoining the active roster ahead of Week 12. Herron provides some much-needed depth on the offensive line with Isaiah Wynn (knee) on injured reserve and Joe Thuney (ankle) and Shaq Mason (calf) also banged up.
Herron (ankle) returned to practice Wednesday, indicating the beginning of his 21-day window to be activated from IR, Mike Reiss of ESPN.com reports.
The rookie sixth-round pick could return to the lineup this week against the Texans depending on how he looks in practice. Herron has played in a swing tackle role and has made two starts this year. It's unsettled what his role will be once he's activated.
The Patriots placed Herron (ankle) on injured reserve Saturday, per the NFL's official transaction log.
Herron will be required to sit out at least three games before returning to the lineup, and considering he was questionable for Week 8, the rookie sixth-rounder should be ready by the Week 11 matchup against Houston. Korey Cunningham and Isaiah Wynn are expected to start at the tackle positions moving forward.
Herron (ankle) is questionable for Sunday's game versus the Bills.
Herron was limited in practice all week, which bodes well for his Week 8 availability. If he's ultimately ruled out, however, Korey Cunningham and Isaiah Wynn likely would start at the tackle positions.
Herron sustained an ankle injury during Sunday's 33-6 loss to the 49ers.
Herron wasn't able to retake the field Sunday, and the severity of his injury remains at this time. The Patriots will hope to get the rookie sixth-round pick back against the Bills on Nov. 1.
