Injury Sony Michel suffers knee injury
Requires procedure, will miss pre-season
By: Mike Krueger | Aug 4 2018, 3:00 pm

New England Patriots
Sony Michel suffered a knee injury that concerned the team Wednesday, source said. He still isn’t at practice. Further details w/more clarity: Michel’s knee injury requires a procedure that’s expected to keep him out of preseason, and perhaps even into the start of the reg season, per 2 sources. So not a major sigh of relief, but the expectation is Michel should contribute this season. (Jeff Howe on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: The injury happened on Wednesday and it appears will sideline the Pats rookie running back for the time being. The procedure was to drain fluid from the knee. The Patriots are notorious for keeping a tight lip on injury situations so it's hard to predict when Michel will be ready for action. While this is a big blow for his fantasy stock, the Patriots have a stockpile of running backs including Rex Burkhead, James White, Mike Gillislee and Jeremy Hill.
