The Patriots have added Gaffney to their practice squad.
With Bishop Sankey having caught on with the Chiefs, Gaffney is now the only running back on the Patriots' practice squad. He's obviously off the fantasy radar for now, but Gaffney would be a candidate for a promotion, and carries with the Patriots, if top power back LeGarrette Blount misses any time down the road.
Gaffney was promoted to the Patriots' active roster on Saturday.
Gaffney signed with the Patriots' practice squad two weeks ago and is now the fifth running back on their active roster. It's unlikely that he has much of a role on offense unless injuries force New England to utilize him.
The Patriots have added
Gaffney has had a hard time staying healthy during his pro career, but the Patriots clearly see something in the running back, as he resurfaces with the team after having been released last month with an injury settlement. He gives the Patriots added backfield depth via the practice squad, along with former Titan Bishop Sankey.
Gaffney (foot) reached an injury settlement with the Patriots on Friday, Mike Petraglia of WEEI.com reports.
The transaction removes Gaffney from the Patriots' injured reserve. If he can regain his health, it isn't out of the realm of possibility for the running back to resurface with another organization before season's end.
