The Patriots aren’t making any promises when it comes to wide receiver Reggie Wayne’s role on the team or even that he’ll have a role on the team come the regular season, but the list of players standing between him and a roster spot got shorter on the day he agreed to join the team.

Brandon Gibson was placed on injured reserve with a knee injury and Brian Tyms will join him as long as a team doesn’t pluck him off waivers. The Patriots waived Tyms with the injury designation on Monday because of a foot injury suffered during last week’s practices with the Saints.

Tyms made the team off a strong preseason last year and played 11 regular season games and one playoff game after serving a four-game PED suspension to start the year. He caught five passes for 82 yards and a touchdown and also played on special teams.

Fantasy Impact:

Tyms and Gibson were both vying for spots on the Patriots receiver depth chart behind Brandon LaFell, Julian Edelman and Danny Amendola. That’s what Wayne will be doing in New England as well with Aaron Dobson, Josh Boyce and Chris Harper now looking like his chief competition, the story said. However Dobson is another WR with injury issues right now.
