Rashod Berry Could Play Both Sides of the Ball
The Patriots held on to undrafted rookie Rashod Berry because of his upside and versatility. It appears he might get a chance to show off the latter on Monday night when he’s expected to make his NFL debut.
The Patriots have activated Berry ahead of the clash with the New York Jets, and per CLNS’ Evan Lazar, there is a chance he could see time on both sides of the ball.
At Ohio State, Berry had 17 receptions for four touchdowns throughout his collegiate career. He played most of his time as a tight end in Columbus, but as a freshman, Berry recorded seven tackles for the Buckeyes.
It’s more likely the Patriots play him at tight end than on defense, but this is still interesting enough to mention.
Patriots Injury Report
How did we get here?

Rookie tight end Devin Asiasi is out for personal reasons. Fellow rookie Dalton Keene was a limited participant in Friday’s practice as was starter Ryan Izzo. With no one completely healthy, expect Berry to get a look.
