The New England Patriots are getting a familiar face back in their secondary.

Cornerback Stephon Gilmore is active for Sunday's game against the Houston Texans. Gilmore has missed the past three games with a knee injury.

The three-time Pro Bowler alluded to returning Saturday, posting a picture of his helmet and travel bag.

Gilmore's return figures to be a welcome addition to a Patriots team currently in the midst of a two-game winning streak. With a victory over the Texans, New England can reach .500 and climb right back into the AFC's playoff race.

The 2019 Defensive Player of the Year has played in six games this season, recording one interception and one forced fumble.
