New England Patriots running back Sony Michel left the Week 7 matchup against the Chicago Bears with an apparent knee injury. He is officially listed as questionable to return, but as you can see from the highlight below, it's more like doubtful.

If Michel misses significant time, fantasy owners of James White will be doing somersaults on their front lawn. White has done most of his damage in the passing game, with 37 catches for 323 yards and four touchdowns, but he'll have more food on his plate in the running game going forward. 


With the exception of White, the Patriots just can't seem to catch a break with their backfield. Michel will likely join fellow running backs Rex Burkhead and Jeremy Hill on the shelf. White will be more than willing to soak up those extra touches.
