Sony Michel ruled out for Week 4 vs Kansas City Chiefs

The Patriots will be without their top running back tonight.

NFL: Oakland Raiders at New England Patriots Brian Fluharty-USA TODAY Sports

The New England Patriots have ruled out running back Sony Michel for Monday night’s matchup against the Kansas City Chiefs.

Fantasy Impact

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.
