The Patriots are adding a pair of players to their 53-man roster prior to tomorrow’s game in Cincinnati, as they’ve called up rookie linebacker Ja’Gared Davis and rookie safety Kanorris Davis from the practice squad to fill a pair of roster spots that were vacated after the team cut tight end Zach Sudfeld and placed defensive tackle Vince Wilfork on the injured reserve list.

Here’s the release from the team’s website:

Ja’Gared Davis, 22, was claimed off waivers by the Patriots on Aug. 28, 2013. The 6-foot, 238-pounder, was originally signed by the Houston Texans as a rookie free agent from Southern Methodist on May 10, 2013, and was released on Aug. 27, 2013. Davis was released by the Patriots on Aug. 31 and signed to the practice squad on Sept. 1. He played in 53 college games and recorded 301 total tackles, 20 sacks, four interceptions, eight forced fumbles and four fumble recoveries.

Kanorris Davis, 23, originally joined the Patriots as a rookie free agent out of Troy on May 3, 2013. The 5-foot-10, 207-pounder was released on Aug. 31 and was signed to the practice squad on Sept. 1. Davis was signed from the practice squad to the 53-man roster last Saturday prior to the game at Atlanta and played against the Falcons on special teams. He was released by the Patriots on Monday and signed back to the practice squad on Wednesday. Davis played as a linebacker in college, where he helped Troy win the Sun Belt Conference Championship in 2011 and 2012.

The Bengals will likely see them in no more than a special teams role.
