On Sunday, the New England Patriots lost running back Steven Ridley to a torn ACL. Now, before they play the New York Jets on Thursday Night Football on CBS and the NFL Network, the team will promote running back Jonas Gray from the practice squad.

Gray will be promoted before tonight’s game. This has been a move that has been rumored all week since Ridley went down with an injury.

Gray, who was an undrafted free agent out of Notre Dame, will be the Patriots third back tonight. He will add depth behind Brandon Bolden and James White.

The 24-year-old has never had a carry in a game. Tonight, he could receive that opportunity.

This is Gray’s first year on the Patriots practice squad. Last year, he spent time in the practice squad with the Baltimore Ravens.

In 2012, he signed as an undrafted free agent with the Miami Dolphins. He was placed on the Physically unable to perform (PUP) List as he was rehabbing a knee injury, before being among the final cuts.
