Patriots RB Danny Woodhead (abdomen) is active for today's game against the Broncos.  Expect him to see his usual handful of touches.

Patriots RB Danny Woodhead (abdomen) was limited in practice this week and is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Broncos.  He's been going through this routine for a few weeks now and has yet to miss a game.  Expect Woodhead to see his usual 5-8 touches this weekend.

11:32am EST 12/11/11

Patriots RB Danny Woodhead (abdomen) is active for today's game against the Redskins.  He's not a good bet for more than a handful of touches though.

Patriots RB Danny Woodhead (abdomen) was limited in practice all week and is listed as questionable for Week 14.  He played through the injury last week and is fully expected to play against the Redskins this Sunday.  Woodhead has averaged just 5 touches per game over the past 3 weeks though.  He's not a recommended fantasy option.

11:58am EST 12/4/11

Patriots RB Danny Woodhead (abdomen) is active for today's game against the Colts.  He's only a desperation fantasy option for PPR leaguers.

Patriots RB Danny Woodhead (abdomen) was limited in practice this week and is questionable for Sunday's game against the Colts.  He'll be a game-time decision.  Averaging just 6 touches per game over the past 3 weeks, Woodhead shouldn't be in fantasy lineups anyways.

2:54pm EDT 10/16/11

Patriots RB Danny Woodhead (ankle) is active for today's game against the Cowboys.  He ended up missing just 1 week.  He's been limited in practice, though, so we doubt he's at 100%.  Woodhead isn't a recommended fantasy option today, regardless of format.

Patriots RB Danny Woodhead (ankle) was limited in practice all week and is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Cowboys.  The injury was supposed to cost him multiple weeks, so we're skeptical that he'll be at 100% if he does end up playing.  Woodhead isn't a recommended fantasy option, even in PPR leagues.

Patriots RB Danny Woodhead (ankle) returned to practice on Wednesday.  It looks like he'll be ready for this weekend's game against the Cowboys.  Prior to going down, Woodhead had seen just 15 total touches in his last 3 games, so he's not a fantasy option.  His return puts a damper on RB Stevan Ridley's outlook though.

2:54pm EDT 10/9/11

As expected, Patriots RB Danny Woodhead (ankle) is inactive for today's game against the Jets.  RBs BenJarvus Green-Ellis and Stevan Ridley will handle backfield duties.

Patriots RB Danny Woodhead (ankle) is listed as doubtful for Sunday’s game against the Jets. It sounds like he could miss multiple weeks. Woodhead’s absence should mean a few more touches for RB Stevan Ridley.

Patriots RB Danny Woodhead (ankle) missed Wednesday's practice.  He's not expected to be available for Sunday's game against the Jets.  That should mean more touches for RB Stevan Ridley, who's a better pass-catcher than RB BenJarvus Green-Ellis.

Not surprisingly, the Patriots have not updated RB Danny Woodhead's status after he was forced from Sunday's game against the Raiders.  But beat writer Ian Rapoport hears that Woodhead has a sprained ankle, but no torn ligaments or broken bones.  "It's a week-to-week thing," Rapoport writes.  After getting 15 touches in the season-opener, Woodhead has seen just 17 total in the past 3 games combined.  He's just about fallen off the fantasy radar.

Patriots RB Danny Woodhead left in the 2nd quarter Sunday with a sprained left ankle. The team has yet to indicate if he'll miss any time. It shouldn't really matter to fantasy owners, though. Woodhead's impact has been small so far and isn't likely to increase with Stevan Ridley gaining more backfield touches.

Patriots RB Danny Woodhead left Sunday's game against the Raiders with a leg injury.  He wasn't able to put any weight on it as he hopped off the field.  We'll update his status when we learn more.

Patriots RB Danny Woodhead led the team's RBs in snaps with the 1st-team offense in Saturday's preseason game against the Lions.  Woodhead was on the field for 28 plays, compared to just 14 for BenJarvus Green-Ellis.  Woodhead has looked good all preseason, averaging 7.7 yards per carry.  He also caught 3 balls for 21 yards on Saturday.  It's a crowded picture in New England's backfield, but Woodhead isn't going anywhere.  He has value in PPR leagues.

The Patriots selected Cal RB Shane Vereen with the 56th overall pick. It seems like a major reach, but it’s probably not a good idea to bet against Bill Belichick. Vereen doesn’t have explosive speed, but he’s slippery in the open field. And most importantly for New England, he’s a well-rounded back capable of contributing on the ground and through the air. We’re already hearing Vereen mentioned as Kevin Faulk version 2.0. RB Danny Woodhead is the biggest loser here.

ESPN Boston’s Mike Reiss believes the Patriots will definitely add a RB at some point during the upcoming draft. It’s a bit surprising considering RB BenJarvus Green-Ellis played so well in 2010, but HC Bill Belichick loves using a committee approach. We’ve seen a few mocks projecting the Pats to trade up in the 1st-round for Alabama RB Mark Ingram. The more likely scenario is that they use one of their 2nd or 3rd-round picks on a guy like Illinois’ Mikel Leshoure or Oklahoma State’s Kendall Hunter.

Patriots RB Danny Woodhead (concussion) has been medically-cleared to return to the practice field.  Barring a setback, he'll be good to go for New England's first playoff game next weekend.

Patriots RB Danny Woodhead suffered a concussion in the 1st quarter of Sunday's game against the Dolphins.  He won't return.
