Patriots' Dion Lewis: Injures hamstring in Super Bowl
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Lewis injured his hamstring during the fourth quarter of Sunday's Super Bowl game, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Lewis sustained what appeared to be a serious injury during the final play of regulation in Sunday's game, but it turns out that it was merely a hamstring tweak and doesn't figure to be anything significant. The running back carried six times for 27 yards in the contest, but was outshone by backfield mate James White, who scored three touchdowns in the Patriots' comeback victory. Lewis will have some time to recover from his injury before organized team activities begin in the spring.

Patriots' Dion Lewis: Scores three TDs in divisional-round win
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Lewis gained 41 yards and scored a touchdown on 13 carries, secured two of seven targets for 23 yards and another score, and totaled 124 yards and a third touchdown on three kickoff returns in Saturday's 34-16 divisional-round win over the Texans. He did fumble twice, losing one.

With the Patriots limiting LeGarrette Blount's touches after he missed a pair of practice sessions during the week with an illness, Lewis stepped up and became only the fifth player in team history to tally three touchdowns in a playoff game. He opened the scoring with a 13-yard scoring reception in the first quarter, then added a 98-yard touchdown on the kickoff return. The fifth-year back capped off his stellar all-purpose performance with a one-yard scoring run early in the fourth, giving New England a commanding 31-16 lead at the time. Lewis easily led in backfield touches and received five more carries than Blount overall, though that workload distribution could be a lot closer or even flipped in the conference championship next Sunday if the former is back at full strength.

Patriots' Dion Lewis: Logs 48 rushing yards Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lewis saw action on 27 of a possible 67 snaps on offense in Sunday's 35-14 win over the Dolphins, carrying 11 times for 48 yards and catching both of his targets for four yards in the process.

As Lewis continues to distance himself from the ACL tear that ended his 2015 season, his involvement in the Patriots' offense has solidified as the postseason approaches. While LeGarrette Blount is entrenched as the Patriots' top power back, Lewis and James White provide able backfield support in their change-of-pace/pass-catching roles. Lewis finishes up the regular season with 64 carries for 283 yards and 17 catches (on 24 targets) for 94 yards over seven games.

Patriots' Dion Lewis: No longer on injury report
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lewis (illness) is no longer listed on the Patriots' Week 17 injury report.

With the Patriots looking to defeat the Dolphins on Sunday in order to secure the No. 1 playoff seed in the AFC, look for Lewis, James White and LeGarrette Blount to continue split work in the Patriots' backfield in Week 17.

Patriots' Dion Lewis: Returns to practice Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Lewis (illness) returned to practice Thursday, ESPN's Mike Reiss reports.

While it remains to be seen if Lewis ends up being listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Dolphins, or is removed from the team's injury report come Friday, we'd expect the running back to be available in Week 17. With the Patriots needing to defeat Miami in order to secure the No. 1 playoff seed in the AFC, look for Lewis, James White and LeGarrette Blount to continue to split work in the team's backfield Sunday. In any case, those in leagues still playing in Week 17, or looking for angles in daily formats, will want scan Sunday's inactives closely, as there will be a number of interesting names posted.
