NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reported that the running back has been promoted from the practice squad to the active 53-man roster, per a team source. The team later confirmed the move.
Gray is mostly known for his 201-yard performance against the Indianapolis Colts last November. The 25-year-old infamously missed a practice the following week after oversleeping and was sent to Bill Belichick's doghouse for the duration of his stay in New England. He compiled 412 yards on 89 attempts as a rookie.
