Michel (knee) rushed 11 times for 31 yards and wasn't targeted in the passing game during Sunday's 34-10 loss to the Titans. Michel was stuck in low gear along with the rest of New England's offense. It didn't help matters that he got a one-yard rushing touchdown vultured by fullback James Develin. The rookie running back will have a chance to further heal up during the Week 11 bye, so expect Michel to regain his effectiveness after that.
Michel (knee) is listed as active for Sunday's game against the Titans. In his return from a two-game absence, Michel is poised to reclaim his duties as the Patriots' lead back, while James White will continue to maintain PPR utility thanks to his strong pass-catching ability. Meanwhile, Cordarrelle Patterson - who helped filled in for Michel over the last couple of weeks - will resume his normal reserve wideout/return duties Sunday, so long as Michel avoids any in-game setbacks.
Michel (knee) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against Tennessee but is considered likely to play, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports. After sitting out New England's last two games, Michel was a limited participant all week before flying with the Patriots to Nashville on Saturday. The fact that he traveled with the team was a good sign for his chances of playing, but fantasy owners will want to confirm that Michel will suit up Sunday before inserting him into lineups. A final word on the rookie's status should come when the team releases its inactive list approximately 90 minutes prior to the 1 p.m. EST kickoff.
Michel (knee) will travel with the team to Tennessee, Michael Giardi of NFL Network reports. That's even more evidence that Michel -- who is currently listed as questionable for the Week 10 contest against the Titans -- will suit up. The rookie running back did manage to practice all week on a limited basis so it's not exactly a surprise to see him travel with the team, but a Week 11 bye could mean the Patriots will be cautious with their running back. Check back closer to Sunday's 1:00 PM ET kickoff for official confirmation, but in the event Michel is active, Cordarrelle Patterson's fantasy value figures to take a dip after he carried the ball 21 times in the past two weeks.
Michel (knee) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Titans after practicing in a limited fashion all week, Ben Volin of The Boston Globe reports. With fellow skill players Julian Edelman (ankle) and Cordarrelle Patterson (neck) removed from the team's injury report Friday, Michel is one of a half dozen players the Patriots list as questionable for Sunday's 1:00 PM ET kickoff. While we suspect the running back has a decent chance to suit up this weekend, that's hardly a lock, a notion supported by the Patriots' lean (by their standards) Week 10 injury report. Look for the likes of NFL insiders Adam Schefter and Ian Rapoport to report on Michel's status closer to game-time. If Michel suits up Sunday, he'd presumably reclaim his spot atop the team's RB depth chart, but if he is held out -- with New England's Week 11 bye in mind -- Cordarrelle Patterson would once again be in line to see added touches out of the Patriots backfield, while James White would continue to maintain PPR utility thanks to his stellar pass-catching skills.
