Even though the New England Patriots own a 9-1 record, the offense has really struggled over the past few weeks. Fortunately for the defending champions, help is on the way.
One of the main concerns for the Patriots is their offensive line, which hasn’t been very effective through the first two months of the season.
Injuries have played a major factor in why New England is having issues in the trenches. However, the offensive line will receive a much-needed boost this weekend against the Dallas Cowboys.
According to ESPN insider Field Yates, the Patriots have officially activated Isaiah Wynn to the 53-man roster.
Wynn is set to play this Sunday against Dallas. He missed the past eight games due to a foot injury.
The Patriots believe Wynn’s return will help protect Tom Brady’s blindside.
The Patriots have officially activated LT Isaiah Wynn to the 53-man roster, per source. He's set to return to the lineup Sunday and is a substantial boost for their offensive line.

New England selected Wynn in the first round of the 2018 NFL Draft. This is the second-straight season that Wynn missed time because of injuries – he missed all of his rookie campaign due to a torn Achilles.
Marshall Newhouse has served as the starting left tackle for the Patriots in Wynn’s absence. He’ll most likely be the backup offensive tackle this Sunday.
Tom Brady had 341 yards, 3 TDs, 0 INTs. His best game of the season. https://t.co/N3IqUxgIZj
