Matt Corral will remain with the New England Patriots after all.

The Patriots are re-signing the 24-year-old quarterback to their practice squad after waiving him --and releasing fellow QB Ian Book -- on Monday, according to the Boston Herald's Doug Kyed.

UPDATE (9:40 a.m. ET): There appears to be a "change of plans," as Corral no longer is expected to join the Patriots practice squad, Kyed reported Wednesday morning.

New England initially claimed Corral off waivers from the Carolina Panthers. There was speculation heading into the season that the Ole Miss product could replace Bailey Zappe as the Patriots' No. 2 QB, but he was placed on the exempt/left squad list when he left the team without notice before Week 1. What led to his departure remains unclear.

The Patriots will return to the practice field Wednesday as they prepare for a crucial Week 3 showdown vs. the New York Jets.
