Ventrone re-signed to practice squad

The Patriots have re-signed safety Ross Ventrone to their practice squad, the team announced today.

Ventrone spent the first two weeks of the season on the practice squad before he was promoted to the active roster for the team's Sept. 25 game in Buffalo. But Ventrone was waived Oct. 1, as injured safety Patrick Chung returned to the lineup for Sunday's game in Oakland.

With the open roster spot, the team promoted offensive tackle Thomas Welch and used him as a blocking tight end.
