Blount was on the field for 27 of 73 snaps on offense in the Patriots' 22-17 win over the Jets on Sunday, ESPN's Mike Reiss reports. In the process, Blount carried 11 times for 67 yards.

Meanwhile, James White saw 26 snaps (and zero carries, en route to catching four passes), while Dion Lewis was out there for 23 snaps, carrying six times for 24 yards and hauling in four passes. While Blount hasn't scored a TD in his last two games, he's turned his 30 carries in that span into 191 yards, good for a 6.4 yards per carry clip. While Lewis and White will continue to handle the Patriots' pass-catching/change-of-pace duties, Blount remains entrenched as the team's power back and is thus in line to see a decent chunk of carries (including some around the goal line) on a weekly basis.
