The Patriots added a receiver to their 53-man roster Tuesday in the wake of the injury to Julian Edelman. 

The Patriots signed rookie WR Chris Harper from the practice squad. Harper, 21, was originally signed by the Patriots as a rookie free agent out of Cal and he made the 53-man roster out of training camp. 

The 5-foot-11, 185-pounder, played in the season opener vs. Pittsburgh as a reserve wide receiver, but did not record any statistics. He was released by the Patriots on Sept. 15, and signed to the practice squad on Sept. 17.

To make room for Harper on the roster the Patriots released OL Chris Barker.
