  • Blount carried just eight times for 31 yards in Saturday's 34-16 divisional-round victory over the Texans. The bruising back had been removed from the injury report on Friday after missing the prior two practices with an illness, yet still ceded the majority of backfield work to Dion Lewis on the night. Blount did get a goal-line opportunity late in the first half, but was stuffed for no gain at the one-yard line. Blount then saw his last two carries on New England's final possession, and he managed to rip off an 18-yard gain to the Texans' 47-yard line that took the clock down to the two-minute warning. Saturday's usage may have simply been a case of the Patriots opting to play it safe with one of their most valuable commodities, and Blount could therefore be back to a much more customary workload in next Sunday's conference championship.

  • Blount (illness) has been removed from the Patriots' injury report in advance of Saturday night's playoff game against the the Texans, ESPN's Mike Reiss reports. The Patriots' bye week has helped the team enter the weekend in solid shape, health-wise, with wideout Malcolm Mitchell being the only player assigned an injury designation (questionable) this week. Blount, who led the NFL this past season with 18 rushing scores, is in line to serve as the Patriots' top power back Saturday, as usual, which gives him upside in TD-heavy formats, despite the fact that he's likely share carries with fellow RB Dion Lewis, who has logged 45 rushing attempts over the squad's last three games.

  • Blount (illness) remained sidelined at Thursday's practice, ESPN's Mike Reiss reports. Back-to-back missed sessions are notable of course, but we'd still expect the running back to rally in time to suit up Saturday night against the Texans. We'll revisit Blount's status Friday, at which time we suspect that he'll either draw an official questionable designation or simply be removed from the Patriots' final injury report in advance of Saturday's playoff tilt.

  • Blount did not practice Wednesday due to illness. Blount was the lone Patriot that spent Wednesday's practice on the sidelines. The severity of his flu is unknown, but look for more updates to come throughout the practice week. James White and Dion Lewis are expected to see an uptick in practice reps should Blount remain out.

  • Blount saw action on 22 of a possible 67 snaps on offense in Sunday's 35-14 win over the Dolphins, carrying 15 times for 51 yards and a TD in the process. Blount thus finishes up the 2016 regular season with 299 carries for 1,161 yards and a team-record 18 rushing TDs to go along with seven catches for 38 yards. The 6-foot, 250-pounder will continue to serve as the Patriots' primary power back in the playoffs, while Dion Lewis and James White are in line to work in complementary/change-of-pace roles in the team's backfield.
