HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) -

Former University of Hawaii running back Joey Iosefa has been signed to the New England Patriots 53-man active roster and is expected to play against the Titans on Sunday, according to the NFL. 

The 6-foot, 247-pound back, who was promoted from the Patriots practice squad, will likely aid New England's running game in the absence of bruising running back Lagarette Blount, who was lost for the season with a hip injury this week. 

Iosefa was a seventh-round pick by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in this year's NFL Draft, but failed to make the team's active roster after training camp.
