Former Denver Broncos running back Montee Ball signed with the New England Patriots’ practice squad on Tuesday, reports ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

Ball’s reported signing comes in the wake of a hip injury sustained by the team’s starting running back LeGarrette Blount on Sunday against the Houston Texans.

Ball, a second round selection in the 2013 draft by the Denver Broncos, was released by the team in September.

The 25-year-old has played in 21 total games in his NFL career. He’s scored five times on 175 carries, while averaging 4.2 yards per carry.

He rushed for a total of 3,753 yards in his final two seasons at Wisconsin, and was a consensus All America selection in 2011 and ’12.
