The Patriots came into the weekend with a pair of running backs listed as questionable to face the Browns and it looks like they’ll have one of them in the lineup.

Adam Schefter of ESPN reports that Rhamondre Stevenson is expected to play on Sunday. Stevenson spent the week in the concussion protocol, but has progressed to the point that he’ll be able to get on the field.

Stevenson had 10 carries for 62 yards and two catches for 44 yards in last Sunday’s win over the Panthers.

Damien Harris also suffered a concussion in that game, but the Patriots ruled him out on Saturday. Wide receiver Gunner Olszewski was also downgraded to out after initially being listed as questionable.

  1. How did he get concussed again?

    Let’s check the tape.

    Ah, he was kicked in the back of the head while he was on the ground by…Brian Burns.

    The guy who spent all week complaining about his ankle being pulled kicked a runner in the head while he was on the ground and knocked him out of the game.

  2. Brown, Gunner and Collins are out for the Pats. Bill covers foe Collins with Winovitch and Bowers (differed roles but both pressure the QB).

    Trent Brown comes off the IR, Stevenson’s activated, LaCasse comes off the practice squad to free up Smith to take on a Coradelle Paterson role and JJ Taylor is activated. Running game looks solid.

    Pats roster was looking like Swiss cheese a couple of days ago and now they have multiple options at positions that looked vulnerable. That’s a staple of Belichick in November and December, turning weaknesses into strengths and looking to exploit weaknesses in their opponents due to injury.
