    New England Patriots RB Sony Michel (knee) is out of practice Monday, Aug. 13.

    Huddle Up: Michel is close to the 10-day window he was given to return. Look for him to be an RB3 or RB4 in fantasy if his knee holds up.

    Updating previous reports, New England Patriots RB Sony Michel (knee) had fluid drained from his knee and will be sidelined for at least 10 days. People close to the situation do not appear to be concerned about Michel's availability for the regular season.

    Huddle Up: Michel will miss at least part of the preseason, but there are questions about his availability for Week 1. Michel can be a No. 3 or No. 4 fantasy running back in all leagues if he is ready for the opener and will be more valuable in keeper leagues.

    Updating a previous report, New England Patriots RB Sony Michel (knee) will need to undergo a procedure on his knee that is expected to keep him sidelined for the preseason and possibly into the regular season, according to sources.

    Huddle Up: Owners will need to monitor the situation to see when Michel will undergo the procedure and how long the Patriots expect him to miss. He is expected to be a solid contributor on offense this season and could still be a No. 3 or No. 4 fantasy running back despite the injury.

    New England Patriots RB Sony Michel (knee) has missed a few practices because of a knee injury, but it is considered minor, according to a source.

    Huddle Up: Michel probably will be back on the field in the near future, so owners should not be worried. He is expected to be part of a committee at running back this season and should be involved in the running and passing game. He has a chance to be a No. 3 receiver in some fantasy leagues.

    New England Patriots RB Sony Michel (undisclosed) left practice Wednesday, Aug. 1, with an undisclosed injury. He wasn't limping, and it's unclear what ailed him.

    The New England Patriots agreed to terms with RB Sony Michel on a four-year contract Sunday, July 22, with an option for a fifth year, according to a source. Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.

    Huddle Up: Michel will share playing time in the New England backfield with several other players but should receive enough touches to be considered a No. 3 or No. 4 running back in most fantasy leagues. He has added value in keeper and dynasty formats.

    New England Patriots RB Sony Michel recorded 12 fumbles during his college career, but director of player personnel Nick Caserio said the team is not concerned about the issue at this point.

    Huddle Up: Michel will share playing time with several other running backs this season but should receive a decent amount of touches each game. He can be considered a No. 3 or No. 4 running back in most fantasy leagues but will be more valuable in keeper leagues.

    The New England Patriots selected Georgia RB Sony Michel with the 31st overall pick in the 2018 NFL Draft Thursday, April 26.

    Huddle Up: Michel likely will be a part of a committee at running back this season and should be involved in the running and passing game. He can be a No. 3 or No. 4 running back in standard leagues in 2018 and can be at least a No. 3 back in keeper leagues because he should be more involved in the coming years.

    University of Georgia RB Sony Michel could drop in this week's NFL Draft due to medical reasons, according to The Ringer's Mike Lombardi.

    Huddle Up: This is the second time in a week an analyst has suggested Michel could be in for a draft-day slide due to a medical issue, as NFL Network's Mike Mayock told reporters at his annual press conference that executives had concerns about a knee injury. Michel did suffer a torn ACL in high school seven years ago, but it's a bit of a stretch to suggest teams would be all that concerned about something so long ago. This has the feel of a team trying to create panic in order to get him to fall in its lap.
