Michel "likely" to return for Week 10 | Shark Bites | Draft Sharks

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that Patriots RB Sony Michel (knee) is "likely" to return for Sunday's game against the Titans. "Just needs a good week of practice with no setbacks, but on track," Schefter adds. We'll keep an eye on Michel's practice participation this week. Once healthy, he'll step back in as New England's lead ball-carrier and be a borderline RB1 in fantasy lineups.

Recent Shark Bites

Patriots RB Sony Michel had arthroscopic knee surgery this offseason, according to Jeff Howe of The Athletic. Michel had been missing workouts without explanation. It's not yet clear which knee had the operation, but his left has been the problem since he tore the ACL on that side in high school in 2011. Michel also had a "minor" procedure on the knee last August that cost him the preseason and the regular-season opener. And he later missed 2 more games with an issue in the same knee. Howe reports that this latest surgery is also "minor" and that Michel's expected to return for training camp. But it looks worrisome from here that Michel is averaging a knee surgery a year so far. We've already been low on the 2nd-year Patriots RB, who might be in for a move further down the rankings given positive reports on rookie Damien Harris and Rex Burkhead so far.

Patriots RB Sony Michel (knee) is active for today’s game against the Titans. It’ll be his 1st action since Week 7, which adds some risk to his outlook. But Michel racked up 316 yards and 4 TDs on 67 carries in his last 3 healthy games, so there’s clearly RB1 upside here.

The Patriots expect RB Sony Michel to return for today's game against the Titans, according to multiple reports. He missed the past 2 weeks with an ankle injury. We'll see if WR Cordarrelle Patterson has worked his way into a larger share of rushing duties going forward, but you'll find Michel inside starter range in our Week 10 RB rankings.

Patriots RB Sony Michel (knee) was limited in practice all week and is listed as questionable for Sunday’s game against the Titans. It’s the same boat he was in last week before ending up inactive. But ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported on Monday that Michel is "likely" to return this week. We'll find out for sure by noon ET on Sunday. The rookie will be a risk/reward RB2 if active.

Patriots RB Sony Michel (knee) was limited in Wednesday's practice. He was limited all last week, too, so this doesn't tell us much. ESPN's Adam Schefter reported earlier this week, though, that Michel is "likely" to return for Sunday's game against the Titans. We'll see if he's able to get in a full workout Thursday or Friday.
