LeGarrette Blount Done For Season; Who’s Next in Line?

LeGarrette Blount done for season

Patriots fans must be telling themselves here we go again. It seems like Bill Belichick and company are always forced to plug in unknown guys and turn them into stars, which is something he’s very comfortable doing.

However, sometimes enough is enough.

New England defeated Houston 27-6 this past Monday night. Unfortunately, the win came with a costly result.

Starting running back, LeGarrette Blount, injured his hip during the second quarter. At the time, it didn’t appear to be too serious. After all, he walked away under his own power.

Nonetheless, as the old saying goes, ‘looks can be deceiving’.

With the regular season winding down, there’s no time for New England to feel sorry for themselves.

Next man up.

Dion Lewis should’ve been the next man up, but he to went down with a season-ending injury last month.

What about Brandon Bolden?

On the season, he’s carried the ball 49 times for 234 yards, which is an average of 4.8 yards per carry.

James White may get a look, but he’s more of a pass-catching back. He has 26 catches with only 16 carries.

Belichick seems comfortable with Bolden moving forward.

 “Brandon has got a real good skill set,” Patriots head coach Bill Belichick said Tuesday. “He has been a valuable guy for us on all four downs, so whether it’s carrying the ball, making tough yards, playing as a sub back and playing in the kicking game, he’s shown a lot of versatility and given us a lot of quality plays in all those situations.

If New England plans on repeating, they’ll need Bolden to take some pressure off Tom Brady.
