Patriots RB Sony Michel heads to locker room with gruesome knee injury

The Patriots saw one of their rising stars leave Sunday’s game against the Bears with¬†a nasty injury.

Running back Sony Michel fumbled the ball and needed help off the field and to the locker room after he got twisted up with a couple Bears defenders early in the second quarter.

The team is listing it as a left knee injury and stated he is questionable to return.

If Michel can’t return, backup Kenjon Barner and James White are the only healthy running backs available.¬†

Michel had four carries for 22 yards before he left the game. So far in 2018, the rookie has 400 rushing yards for four touchdowns.
