Draft Scout LeGarrette Blount News
08/21/15 - RB LeGarrette Blount had a solid week of practice against the Saints and could make his summer debut Saturday night. Blount has been working back from a knee injury suffered in camp practice, but overall has looked very impressive this summer.
08/15/15 - RB LeGarrette Blount sat out the Packers game due to his MCL injury, but returned to the practice field on Saturday for seemingly full reps in the helmets-and-shells workout.
08/12/15 - RB LeGarrette Blount was on the practice field for a short time in full pads on Tuesday but did not take part in any team drills. The back worked on conditioning as he works back from a reported MCL strain suffered last week in practice. He will not play in the preseason opener.
08/10/15 - RB LeGarrette Blount's knee injury is no worse than a sprain. MRI results were negative, according to the Boston Herald, and he is expected to be ready for Week 2 (he is suspended for the opener).
08/03/15 - RB LeGarrette Blount missed the first two, unpadded days of Patriots training camp while on NFI after failing the team's conditioning run. But New England's projected lead back was on the field and in full pads for the third day of work. Ironically, he looks lighter, quicker and faster this summer.
"I'm just going to continue to go out there and try to get better," Blount said, avoiding talk of the failed conditioning test. "It doesn't matter what time of the year it is. That's the plan is to always get better and make sure that I'm doing everything that I can do and make sure I'm doing it to the best of my capabilities when they're asking me to do it."
With Stevan Ridley (Jets) and Shane Vereen (Giants) having moved on via free agency the Patriots' running back depth chart is wide open. Even for a team that's used a committee approach at the position for the bulk of the last decade, there are certainly roles, carries and opportunities to be earned.
"The job is open. There are a bunch of good running backs here," Blount said of a group that also includes Jonas Gray, Brandon Bolden, James White, Dion Lewis and Tyler Gaffney. "All of our running backs are pretty good, and at some point they played really well in their career. It's an open job. Everybody's got to fight for that position."
