Most Recent Shark Bites

Patriots RB Rhamondre Stevenson was placed on the COVID list on Friday and will miss this weekend's game vs. the Bills. RB Damien Harris (hamstring) is listed as questionable after a limited week of practice. He could be in for a big workload on Sunday if that hamstring checks out. If not, New England would be down to RBs Brandon Bolden and J.J. Taylor. We'll gets the Patriots' inactives around 11:30 am ET on Sunday.

Patriots RB Brandon Bolden (knee) is active for tonight's game vs. the Bills. He should be ready for his usual pass-catching role.

Patriots RB Brandon Bolden (knee) is listed as questionable for Week 13. He was limited in practice all week and should be available for his usual passing-down role vs. the Bills on Monday night.

Patriots RBs Damien Harris (neck) and RB Rhamondre Stevenson (knee) are "looking good to play" vs. the Titans today, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Both guys are listed as questionable, but we never sensed any concern about their statuses. Look for Harris and Stevenson to split early-down work today, with RB Brandon Bolden handling most of the passing downs.

Patriots RB J.J. Taylor is a healthy scratch for tonight's game vs. the Falcons. He's the odd man out with RB Damien Harris cleared from his concussion. Harris, Rhamondre Stevenson and Brandon Bolden will share backfield work tonight. Here's how we rank them.

Patriots RB Damien Harris (concussion) is not listed on the final injury report. He's been cleared to return for Thursday night's game vs. the Falcons. RB Rhamondre Stevenson went off in Harris' absence last week, making this a tough backfield to project for Week 11. Our best guess is that Harris returns to a lead role but cedes more work to Stevenson than he had been. RB Brandon Bolden will continue mixing in on passing downs.

Patriots RB Rhamondre Stevenson (concussion) is active for today’s game vs. the Browns. J.J. Taylor is also active, joining Stevenson and Brandon Bolden in the backfield. We’re expecting all 3 to be involved today, with Stevenson the best bet for carries and Bolden likely to lead in targets.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that Patriots RB Rhamondre Stevenson (concussion) is expected to play vs. the Browns today. The rookie missed all 3 practices this week, which might impact his role in the game plan today. But we'd still consider him the favorite to lead New England in carries. RB Brandon Bolden might still take on a bigger ball-carrying role and should handle most of the pass-catching work.

Patriots RB Rhamondre Stevenson (concussion) has a "real shot" to play vs. the Browns today, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. It sounds like Stevenson will try to get medical clearance this morning. We'll get New England's inactives around 11:30 am ET. With RB Damien Harris (concussion) out, an active Stevenson would be the favorite to lead the Patriots in carries today.

Patriots RB Damien Harris (concussion) has been downgraded to out for Sunday's game vs. the Browns. RB Rhamondre Stevenson (concussion) is still listed as questionable and evidently has a shot to be cleared by tomorrow. We'll keep you updated on his status.

The Patriots list RBs Damien Harris and Rhamondre Stevenson as questionable for this weekend’s game vs. the Browns with their concussions. Neither guy practiced at all this week, so we’d be surprised if they were cleared by Sunday. Their absences would leave New England’s backfield to Brandon Bolden and J.J. Taylor. Bolden would be the preferred fantasy play as a borderline RB2 in that case.

Patriots RBs Damien Harris and Rhamondre Stevenson missed practice again on Thursday with their concussions. Both guys now look unlikely to be cleared in time for Sunday's game vs. the Browns. Their absences would leave New England's backfield to Brandon Bolden and J.J. Taylor.

Patriots RBs Damien Harris and Rhamondre Stevenson missed Wednesday's practice with their concussions. They both have a long way to go to get cleared for this weekend's game vs. the Browns. Brandon Bolden and J.J. Taylor are New England's healthy RBs right now.

The Boston Herald's Karen Guregian confirms that Patriots RBs Damien Harris and Rhamondre Stevenson are in the concussion protocol. That makes them both iffy for this weekend's game vs. the Browns. Their absences would leave New England's backfield to Brandon Bolden and J.J. Taylor. We'll keep you updated on Harris and Stevenson's statuses.

Patriots RB Rhamondre Stevenson is a healthy scratch for tonight's game against the Bucs -- despite RB James White's absence. That leaves just Damien Harris, Brandon Bolden and J.J. Taylor in New England's backfield.

Patriots RB James White is expected to miss the rest of the season with his hip injury, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. It's a significant loss, as White had racked up 13 targets through the first 2 weeks of the season. We're intrigued to see who steps into the all-important pass-catching back role for the Patriots. It was special-teamer Brandon Bolden after White exited last week.

Patriots RB James White is "out indefinitely" after suffering a hip subluxation in Sunday's loss to the Saints, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. It's the same injury Washington QB Ryan Fitzpatrick suffered in Week 1. We'll look for a more concrete timetable for White's return, but it sounds like he's at least headed to short-term IR. White is droppable in shallower fantasy leagues. Brandon Bolden stepped in as New England's lead passing-down back in Week 3, but we'll see what the Patriots do this coming week. RB Damien Harris could pick up more passing-game work -- or New England could use a bit more of RBs J.J. Taylor or Rhamondre Stevenson.

Patriots RB LeGarrette Blount (hip) will miss the rest of the 2015 season.  The news was 1st reported by WEEI.com's Mike Petraglia and has since been confirmed by ESPN's Adam Schefter.  We still don't have any details on Blount's specific injury, but that's irrelevant for redraft leagues.  New England's backfield is now down to Brandon Bolden and James White.  Bolden figures to handle the majority of the ball-carrying duties.  White will continue serving in a pass-catching role and might see a slight uptick in carries.  Bolden looks like the better fantasy play in Week 15 against the Titans, while White might be busier vs. the Jets' tough run defense in Week 16.

Patriots RB LeGarrette Blount (hip) was spotted on crutches on Tuesday.  We don't have any details about the hip injury that knocked him out of last Sunday night's game, but it sure looks like Blount is a long shot to play against Titans this weekend.  That'd leave "big back" duties to Brandon Bolden and could also mean a bigger role for James White.

Patriots RB LeGarrette Blount left Sunday night's game at Houston with a left hip injury. NBC reports that he headed to the locker room for X-rays after getting checked out on the sideline. Blount had already carried 10 times for 53 yards before leaving. We'll keep an eye on his status. His absence leaves the backfield to James White and Brandon Bolden.

Update: Blount has been ruled out for the rest of the game.
