The Patriots have made a series of roster moves ahead of their Monday night game against the Chiefs.

As expected, the team activated running back Damien Harris (thumb) and wide receiver Gunner Olszewski (foot) from injured reserve. Both their injuries occurred during the final days of training camp. It’s expected both will be active Monday night in Kansas City.

In addition, the team temporarily activated rookie wide receiver Isaiah Zuber for the game. The UDFA made his debut last week against Las Vegas, gaining 13 yards on his only carry.

Finally, the Patriots placed a pair of players on the three-week injured reserve. Running back Sony Michel injured his quad in an otherwise breakout performance last week. According to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport, Michel is expected to return “relatively quickly.”

Special teams ace Cody Davis was also placed on IR. The 31-year-old suffered a rib injury late in the game against the Raiders, and didn’t practice all week.
