Nick Folk, Xavier Williams revert to Patriots’ practice squad

Kicker Nick Folk and defensive tackle Xavier Williams reverted to the New England Patriots’ practice squad on Monday, according to the NFL transaction wire.

Both veterans had been designated as standard elevations to the active list ahead of the 2020 season opener against the Miami Dolphins.

Folk, 35, converted each of his three extra points and missed a 45-yard field goal in New England’s 21-11 win Sunday at Gillette Stadium. The former Dallas Cowboy, New York Jet, Tampa Bay Buccaneer and Arizona Hotshot appeared in eight games last campaign, including the AFC divisional round. Folk re-signed during training camp in the company of rookie kicker Justin Rohrwasser.
