New England Patriots rookies Cam McGrone, Joshuah Bledsoe make their debuts at practice in Week 11
McGrone, a linebacker and a 2021 fifth-round pick, started the season on the non-football injury (NFI) list after suffering an ACL injury during the 2020 college football season. Bledsoe, a safety and a 2021 sixth-round pick, was recovering from wrist surgery. Because they both started on the NFI list, they have 21 days before they must be activated to the roster or else they revert back to NFI for the remainder of the season.
They weren’t the only players to make their debut. Punter Corliss Waitman also participated, likely as a practice squad player. He has spent time with the Las Vegas Raiders after entering the NFL in 2020 out of South Alabama.
The team had perfect attendance during the media portion of Tuesday’s practice.
