The Patriots placed first-round pick N'Keal Harry on injured reserve today, which means he is eligible for one of two spots for players returning from injury. He has to sit for the first six weeks of the season, and can be activated after eight weeks.

To take his place, the Patriots re-signed Demaryius Thomas to a one-year deal, according to sources.
