The New England Patriots have ruled out running back Sony Michel for Monday night’s matchup against the Kansas City Chiefs.
RB Sony Michel has been downgraded to out for #NEvsKC.— New England Patriots (@Patriots) October 5, 2020
Michel is coming off his best game of his career against the Raiders and I had high hopes for him facing a Chiefs defense that loves to let teams run on them. With Michel out, the Patriots have James White, Rex Burkhead, and JJ Taylor taking the backfield duties. I would expect we see a lot of White and Burkhead tonight. This game might be a painful one for the Patriots.
