Guard Xavier Newman has again been signed to the active roster and could start his fourth contest of the year but remains to be seen.
Rookie linebacker Zaire Barnes was also placed on injured reserve which will effectively end his season while defensive lineman Jalyn Holmes and linebacker Marcelino McCrary-Ball were elevated from the practice squad.
