The Patriots signed S Ross Ventrone to the 53-man roster from the practice squad and cut WR-KR Tiquan Underwood.

Ventrone, a first-year player out of Villanova, has bounced back and forth between the practice squad and the active roster throughout the season, having played in four games.

Underwood was signed during the week to be a kickoff returner.

The Patriots are thin at safety heading into Sunday night's game against the Jets, as Josh Barrett is on injured reserve and Patrick Chung is questionable.
