Report: No structural damage to Sony Michel’s knee


Patriots running back Sony Michel went for an MRI on Monday after leaving Sunday’s win over the Bears with a knee injury and it appears he got good news.

Adam Schefter of ESPN reports that the test showed no structural damage to Michel’s knee.

While it seems Michel avoided a season-ending injury, the Patriots may be without out him for a bit. Schefter reports he’s considered week to week and the Patriots have three games to go until they reach their bye week.

The first of those games comes against the Bills next Monday and it seems like a decent bet that the Patriots will be adding a running back to the roster between now and then. James White, Kenjon Barner and James Develin are the only healthy members of the backfield on the roster right now.

  1. Good news even though we didn’t need him to beat the “vaunted” Bears defense.

  2. Seemed morel likely than a tear based on the tackle.

    Guessing he sits out until after the bye, Green Bay is the game he will be most needed, but I can’t see him ready in 2 weeks. Their going to need him for the playoffs. Maybe this works out in a way to keep him fresher down the stretch/into the playoffs when they need him most.

  3. That’s good news not a pats fan but hate too see all these injuries get well soon Sony. He is a good young back get better soon

  4. FINALLY, some GOOD NEWS on the injury front….. I don’t see him playing again till after the Bills game, maybe even after the bye week depending on how well he heals up….. I’d rather have him 100% healthy & fresh after the bye for the rest of the season then rush him back

    Overuse of a rookie. I hate to see that! Is McDaniels the only one who couldn’t see this coming


    Obviously you didn’t watch the game. Terrible twist while getting tackled. Nothing to do with overuse ya lousy pats troll.

  6. Would have definitely turned into one the best best rookie running backs in the league, if he hadn’t gotten injured. Would have went over 1000 yds. Gonna need him fresh for the playoff run.

    Not injured. Just soft like the rest of that roster.

    And yet year after year they’re one of the best teams in the league. So what does that say about the NFL then that this so called soft team wins as much as anyone does

    Of course theirs no structural damage to his knee, it was his ankle that got twisted up on that tackle. New England is lying about the injury.

    So the guy’s out for multiple weeks but you believe the Patriots are lying about his injury?! Ya that makes sense. If I were you I would worry more about how dumb you are than what the women in Green Bay look like

  9. As I said above, rest him till after the bye week…. Pats ALREADY have his TEMPORARY replacement ON THE TEAM IN Patterson….. he’d be AWESOME OUT OF THE BACKFIELD ON PITCH OUTS & SCREENS….. just get him out in space & let his talent @ speed do the rest….. utilize his skill set while Sony recovers……
    Don’t waste money/roster spot or picks on a RB as we are good at this stage!!!
    Go Pats!!!!
