LeGarrette Blount sidelined with sprained MCL-- Fri Aug 7 8:00 pm --
Should be ready for start of the regular season
Patriots running back LeGarrette Blount, injured during Friday’s training camp session, suffered a sprained MCL in his right knee, according to a league source. The source said Blount will be ready for the start of the regular season.(Boston Globe)
FF Today's Take:This is typically a 2-3 week injury for most players and with Blount already suspended for Week 1, he should have plenty of time to heal and get back in the swing of things before Week 2. His fantasy value may take a slight hit but it shouldn't and could pose an even better value opportunity for savvy owners. Jonas Gray and Brandon Bolden will get more reps in camp with Blount on the sideline.
