Just 24 hours from squaring off against the Bills in a pivotal AFC East matchup, the Patriots made their first move, signing Rob Gronkowski's brother, Glenn, to the practice squad on Saturday.

Glenn signed with the Bills as undrafted free agent out of Kansas State and played in Buffalo's 13-7 loss to the Ravens.

Following the loss, and after only playing eight snaps, he was cut.

Rob has been hampered by a hamstring injury has missed two games for the Patriots. He played in New England's win over Houston, but did not have a catch.

The Bills and Patriots play Sunday in Foxborough.  Rob is questionable for the game.
