The New England Patriots have made 33 moves to get their roster down to 53 players, but don’t expect this list to stay permanent before their Week 1 matchup with the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday night.

NON-FOOTBALL INJURY/PHYSICALLY UNABLE TO PERFORM
OT Yodny Cajuste (NFI)
WR Cameron Meredith (PUP)

SUSPENDED (2)
TE Ben Watson (four games)
TE Lance Kendricks (one game)

RELEASED BUT LIKELY TO RETURN
WR Demaryius Thomas

SEASON-ENDING INJURED RESERVE
C David Andrews
OL Hjalte Froholdt
S Malik Gant
OLB Derek Rivers

Some notes:

— Expect a player to go on injured reserve after he’s made the initial roster. That would open a spot back up for Thomas.

— Cajuste and Meredith can return after Week 6 if they’re healthy.

— Andrews’ season is over after a blood clot was found in his lungs. The Patriots could release Gant or Rivers with an injury settlement if he’s expected to get healthy before the season is over.
