Patriots activate OL Eluemunor from IR

New England right tackle Jermaine Eluemunor has been activated from injured reserve, but linebacker Shilique Calhoun was placed on it Saturday with a knee injury.

Eluemunor, who started four of the first five games before suffering an ankle injury against the Broncos on Oct. 18, had moved atop the depth chart at right tackle after Marcus Cannon opted out of playing this season.

Calhoun, who has 14 tackles, two sacks and two forced fumbles in eight games while also playing on special teams, will miss at least the next three games.

New England (3-5), which hosts the Baltimore Ravens (6-2) on Sunday night, also activated linebackers Terez Hall and Cassh Maluia to the 53-man roster from the practice squad.

The Patriots signed tight end Paul Quessenberry to the practice squad and released defensive lineman Nick Thurman, who made seven tackles in six games, including one start, this season.

Running back Sony Michel (quadriceps) wasn’t activated from IR after he was eligible to return for a second straight week.
