Dion Lewis out for season with torn ACL
Dion Lewis, 25 will be sorely missed as he went down with an apparent knee injury that was later discovered to be a torn left ACL in the Patriots’ 27-10 victory over the Redskins. Lewis was an important cog for the smoothly functioning Patriots offense as he was able to put his versatility, and quickness to test. Lewis who ranked first in most broken tackles through week 9 with 46. Through seven games, Lewis has been a dual threat rushing for 234 yards over 49 carries, while running it in for a score twice as well as catching 36 passes for 388 yards, with 2 Receiving touchdowns. Lewis averaged 7.4 yards per touch, which included both carries and receptions which he led in the NFL for running backs. Lewis’ production will not be replaced, but the Patriots do have options to soften the blow with Brandon Bolden and second year player James white who are capable of stepping up and carrying some of the load. The preparation set by the Patriots coaching staff is superb, as Belichick and company has a wonderful offensive system that heavily relies on players to be ready when their numbers are called upon. And expect the same to be done as the Patriots look to find a way to make up for Lewis’ impact.
