LeGarrette Blount managed 40 yards on 14 carries in the Patriots' Super Bowl 49 win over the Seahawks.
Early in the contest, the Patriots used their power-run game to complement a dink-and-dunk passing approach versus Seattle. Ineffective, Blount eventually took a backseat to Shane Vereen. The Pats signed Blount to a two-year deal after he was cut by the Steelers, so he will be a part of the offseason roster. With Vereen and Stevan Ridley scheduled for free agency, New England is sure to add talent at running back this spring. Feb 1 - 10:17 PM

LeGarrette Blount had his marijuana charges withdrawn after he completed 50 hours of community service.

Blount and Le'Veon Bell were arrested in August and popped with pot charges. Blount had until February 4 to complete his court-mandated community service. With the case now resolved, the league can step in and take action against Blount. It's possible he and Bell receive a fine or short suspension in 2015.

LeGarrette Blount denies orchestrating his November release from the Steelers.

Conspiracy theorists suggest that New England reached out to Blount and told him that if he wiggled his way out of Pittsburgh, he'd be able to return to Bill Belichick's waiting arms. So then Blount went haywire with his attitude and quit on the team, leaving Mike Tomlin no choice but to dump Le'Veon Bell's backup. The hole in that theory is that every team in the league had a chance to claim him before he became a free agent and signed with the Patriots. Regardless, in seven games as a Patriot since then, Blount has rushed 93 times for 430 yards (4.62 YPC) with six touchdowns.

LeGarrette Blount rushed 30 times for 148 yards with three touchdowns in Sunday's 45-7 AFC Championship Game win over the Colts.

The Colts got smashed in the mouth, run over and spit out by a team that's now going to the Super Bowl for the sixth time in the Tom Brady/Bill Belichick era. The key villain was Blount, a player that essentially quit on the Steelers and was subsequently cut following Week 11. In his seven games as a Patriot since then, he's rushed 93 times for 430 yards (4.62 YPC) with six touchdowns. Sunday's performance was particularly impressive, as the 250-pounder showed light feet in the open field while also bringing the hammer. It was eerily reminiscent of the 2013 season's Divisional Round game when Blount put 24-166-4 on the Colts and Week 11 of this season when Jonas Gray ran through Indy for 37-201-4. Blount will be the Patriots' power back when they face Seattle in the Feb. 1 Super Bowl.

LeGarrette Blount rushed three times for one yard in New England's Divisional Round win over the Ravens.

The Pats generated only 14 yards of rushing offense, a record low for a playoff victor. Brandon Bolden got the "start," but rotated with Blount. Shane Vereen appeared to lead the backfield in snaps, playing an active role as a pass catcher. Jonas Gray was inactive. Blount and Bolden figure to get more work in the AFC Championship Game, but it's hard to predict how OC Josh McDaniels will divvy up carries.
Jan 10 - 9:03 PM

LeGarrette Blount (shoulder) rushed 10 times for 62 yards Week 17 against the Bills.

The Patriots rested most of their starters, but Blount was featured all the way into the fourth quarter despite coming into the game with a shoulder injury. That usage does not say much for his standing in the New England offense, though Jonas Gray (ankle) being inactive may have force Blount into more work. With his shoulder at almost 100 percent, Blount should be ready to rock when the Patriots return from their first-round bye.

LeGarrette Blount (shoulder) remained limited in Friday's practice and is listed as questionable for Week 17.

Blount was held out last week despite practicing on a limited basis. He could see limited snaps even if active. With Jonas Gray ruled out, Brandon Bolden and James White are candidates for expanded roles.
Fri, Dec 26, 2014 05:02:00 PM

LeGarrette Blount (shoulder) practiced Wednesday.

Blount also practiced all of last week, but was ruled out on Saturday. We'll consider him questionable for Sunday's game against the Bills, especially with the Patriots already having clinched the AFC's No. 1 seed.
Wed, Dec 24, 2014 12:40:00 PM

LeGarrette Blount (shoulder) has been ruled out for Week 16.

Blount was expected to play after being limited in practice throughout week. The Patriots will now be down to Jonas Gray and Shane Vereen against the Jets. Julian Edelman (concussion) has also been ruled out for Sunday's game.
Sat, Dec 20, 2014 08:22:00 PM

LeGarrette Blount (shoulder) remained limited in Friday's practice and is listed as questionable for Week 16.

Blount played only 16 snaps last week due to his shoulder injury. His Week 16 status isn't in doubt, but he faces an uncertain workload at less than 100 percent. Blount is an RB3 with touchdown upside against the Jets.
Fri, Dec 19, 2014 04:51:00 PM

LeGarrette Blount (shoulder) remained limited in Thursday's practice.

Blount's Week 16 availability isn't in doubt, but his role is muddled with the re-emergence of Jonas Gray. Blount will be a touchdown-dependent FLEX play for the fantasy finals. Players who are still alive in season-long leagues need to do better.
Thu, Dec 18, 2014 04:57:00 PM

LeGarrette Blount (shoulder) was limited in Wednesday's practice.

Blount was out-snapped and out-touched by Jonas Gray last week but did rush for 17 yards and one touchdown on eight carries. We'd tentatively expect Blount to play against the Jets, but he's barely on the RB3 radar.
Wed, Dec 17, 2014 04:10:00 PM

LeGarrette Blount rushed eight times for 17 yards and a touchdown in New England's Week 15 win over the Dolphins, adding two receptions for seven yards.

The other shoe finally dropped for Blount, who had averaged 14.6 touches through his first three games as a Patriot. He got vultured for a three-yard score by Shane Vereen in the second quarter, and was actually out-touched 12-10 by Jonas Gray. Six of Gray's touches came with the game long decided, but he was involved while the final score was still in doubt. It's back to the drawing board for Blount's fantasy owners. He'll be a boom-or-bust RB3 against the Jets' stout run defense in Week 16.
Sun, Dec 14, 2014 05:57:00 PM

LeGarrette Blount has been ordered to perform 50 hours of community service as a result of his August marijuana arrest.

The charge will be dropped if he completes the 50 hours by February 4. This now clears the way for the NFL to hand down punishment, though we're uncertain if any will come after the revised personal-conduct policy. If Blount is suspended at all, it likely won't come into effect until the 2015 season.
Wed, Dec 10, 2014 10:48:00 AM

LeGarrette Blount had 20 carries for 66 yards in Sunday night's Week 14 win over the Chargers.

The Patriots got Blount involved early with seven carries on the first drive. He failed to convert on his only goal-line chance, and wasn't able to get anything going in the second half. Blount is averaging 15 touches per game since coming over from the Steelers. He'll be a low-end RB2/FLEX against Miami in Week 15.
