Morris May Miss 3 Weeks

According to Adam Schefter of, Sammy Morris’ injury will keep him out of the next two to three games. This is bad news for the Patriots, as they just put Laurence Maroney on IR, and Lamont Jordan is still hurt. The team that once had six quality running backs on the roster is down to two tailbacks and a fullback: Kevin Faulk, BenJarvus Green-Ellis, and Heath Evans.

If the Patriots choose to make do with what they have, expect to see the Patriots use the short pass and screen pass in lieu of using the power running game. The following “street” free-agents would be available if the Patriots wanted to make an addition. (2007 teams in parentheses)

Marcel Shipp (ARI)
Musa Smith (BAL)
Kenton Keith (IND)
Ryan Moats (PHI)
LaBrandon Toefield (JAC)
Mike Bell (DEN)
Ron Dayne (God Help Us)
