The New England Patriots have likely already landed in Denver, Colorado for their AFC Championship game tomorrow against the Denver Broncos tomorrow. Before the game, the team has made a transaction.

The team has promoted linebacker Kevin Snyder from the practice squad to the 53-man roster. The Rutgers product signed with the Patriots on Dec. 16th, 2015.

With the Patriots banged up at the linebacker position, he’ll likely be a depth body, as he’s never played in an NFL game yet. Only LB Jerod Mayo is on the only linebacker on the injury report, as he was played on injured reserve with a shoulder injury on January 20th.

Fellow linebacker Jamie Collins has been banged up, but is expected to play, as he’s not even listed on the injury report.

He had a whirlwind NFL experience as the 23-year-old rookie free agent originally signed with the Detroit Lions after leaving Kyle Flood’s team. The 6-foot-2, 240-pounder was injured in the preseason — and as a result, began the season with the Lions on their injured reserve list.

Then, on October 13th, he was released by the Lions. A little more than a month later, he signed with the San Francisco 49ers to join their practice squad on Nov. 24th.

About a week later, the 49ers released him from his spot as a practice body.
