Patriots | Questions at running back

Thu, 21 Jun 2012 23:45:00 -0700

It appears the New England Patriots will rely on second-year RBs Shane Vereen and Stevan Ridley as their top runners in 2012. However, the pair has more questions surrounding them than answers right now. Vereen had just 15 carries as a rookie because of injury problems and Ridley had fumble problems in consecutive games last year, which led to a quick hook from the field. The team has veteran RBs Joseph Addai and Danny Woodhead on roster and they may, as reported, have interest in re-signing RB Sammy Morris.

Mon, 26 Jul 2010 09:58:36 -0700

The New England Patriots rushed for 1,921 yards and 19 touchdowns last year, while averaging 4.1 yards per carry as a team, reports Tom E. Curran, of Comcast SportsNet.

The quartet of Laurence Maroney, Kevin Faulk, Fred Taylor and Sammy Morris provide more yawns than fear entering the year and the Patriots didn't address the position during the offseason.
