Patriots RB Dion Lewis has been diagnosed with a torn left ACL, and is done for the season.
It's the worst possible news for a player who had arguably been 2015's top fantasy story. It's Lewis' second major left leg injury in three years after he missed all of 2013 with a fractured fibula. If there's good news, it's that Lewis still has youth on his side. He just turned 25 in September. He'll be questionable for the start of next summer's training camp, but should be the favorite for third-down duties. Left in his wake for 2015 are Brandon Bolden, James White and likely a free agent signing. There should be a committee behind LeGarrette Blount, one that could prove entirely unsatisfactory for fantasy purposes. Mon, Nov 9, 2015 01:39:00 PM

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports Dion Lewis has a "loose" ACL and will require an MRI.

The good news is Lewis experienced no immediate swelling his knee after Sunday's win over the Redskins. The bad news is his ACL may be torn. The "hope" is Lewis suffered a mere sprain, but the MRI will confirm or refute that. Should the Patriots lose Lewis for the season, they would likely turn to James White or Brandon Bolden as their primary passing-down back, with inside grinder LeGarrette Blount taking on an more consistent week-to-week role.

CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora reports the "hope" is Dion Lewis suffered just an MCL sprain Week 9 against the Redskins.

Lewis went down in a heap after planting his left leg at the end of a screen pass in the third quarter. An MCL sprain would be good news, but Lewis would still likely miss several weeks. LeGarrette Blount will be a solid RB2 as long as Lewis is sidelined. We will know more following Lewis' MRI.

Dion Lewis exited Week 9 against the Redskins with a left knee injury.

Lewis has already been ruled out for the game. He went down without contact at the end of a screen pass in the third quarter. Non-contact injuries are never good, and it is concerning he was quickly ruled out. The lone positive is Lewis was able to walk off the field on his own, but as Jordy Nelson taught us, that means very little. LeGarrette Blount will dominate running back touches with Lewis out. Lewis had 14 yards on four carries and four catches for 39 yards before exiting.

Dion Lewis (abdomen) is listed as probable for Week 9.

Lewis will be the Patriots' starting tailback Sunday versus Washington.
Fri, Nov 6, 2015 04:08:00 PM

Dion Lewis (abdomen) remained "limited" Thursday.

Lewis' abdomen hasn't been a concern for a few weeks. He'll be an RB1 against the Redskins.
Thu, Nov 5, 2015 04:05:00 PM

Dion Lewis (abdomen) was limited in Wednesday's practice.

Lewis played 42 snaps in his return last week, totaling 112 yards and a touchdown. His Week 9 status isn't in doubt.
Wed, Nov 4, 2015 04:55:00 PM

Dion Lewis caught 6-of-9 targets for 93 yards and a touchdown in New England's Week 8 win over the Dolphins, adding five rushes for 19 yards.

Returning from a one-week absence, Lewis frequently put the Dolphins' defense on skates, making jukes few backs have in their arsenal. Looking more explosive than Shane Vereen ever was in New England, Lewis is shaping up as a dynamic weapon for an offense that's been dangerously good. He'll be in the RB1 conversation against the Redskins in Week 9.

Dion Lewis (abdomen) is active for Week 8 against the Dolphins.

Lewis was limited in Week 6 and absent in Week 7, but the Patriots think he's ready to go. With his health still a question mark, Lewis is just a low-end RB2. Inactive for the Patriots are DE Jabaal Sheard, LT Marcus Cannon, OL Shaq Mason, S Dewey McDonald, WR Keshawn Martin, S Tavon Wilson and DE Trey Flowers. With Cannon out, Sebastian Vollmer will make another start on the blindside. Cameron Fleming is at right tackle.

ESPN's Adam Schefter confirms Dion Lewis (abdomen) is expected to play Thursday evening.

Per Schefter, Lewis will have to prove his health in pre-game warmups, but the consensus is that he'll play. Schefter's colleague Adam Caplan confirms Lewis is dealing with an abdominal strain. With his health at less than 100 percent, Lewis will be a lower-end RB2 if he suits up.
Thu, Oct 29, 2015 03:05:00 PM

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports Dion Lewis (abdomen, questionable) will play Thursday night against the Dolphins.

Rapoport said Lewis sat out last week to get healthy for this game. The Dolphins front has been solid against the run since ex-DC Kevin Coyle was fired, giving up just 3.1 yards per carry the last two weeks. The tough matchup could mean the Patriots utilize more of a spread offense which plays to Lewis' strengths in space. He is a solid RB2 this week and a better play than LeGarrette Blount.
Thu, Oct 29, 2015 12:47:00 PM

Dion Lewis (abdomen) is listed as questionable for Thursday night's Week 8 game against the Dolphins.

Lewis remained "limited" in practice this week, just like he was last week before being inactive, and coach Bill Belichick has refused to divulge any info. "We'll see tomorrow." Belichick said Wednesday. "We didn't really practice this week. My mom could've gotten through practice." We'll simply have to wait until inactives are announced to know for certain if Lewis will play.
Wed, Oct 28, 2015 03:55:00 PM

Dion Lewis (abdomen) practiced on Tuesday.

He'll remain "limited" on the injury report, but is tentatively on track to return against the Dolphins after missing Sunday's game against the Jets. With his health a question mark on a short week, Lewis will be a lower-end RB2 if he suits up.

Dion Lewis (abdomen) was listed as a limited practice participant on the Patriots' Monday injury report.

The Pats did not hold a Monday practice, but the league requires them to issue a would-be injury report ahead of Thursday night's game against the Dolphins. Lewis' status is wholly uncertain after missing Sunday's win over the Jets.
Mon, Oct 26, 2015 05:01:00 PM

Dion Lewis (abdomen) is inactive for Week 7 against the Jets.

As is Brandon Bolden, meaning James White will serve as the Patriots' passing-down back behind banger LeGarrette Blount. Bolden's absence provides clarity for White, but he's still hard to trust as more than a low-floor FLEX option. Brandon LaFell is active, and should be the Patriots' No. 2 receiver. Also inactive for the Pats are WR Keshawn Martin, LB Jabaal Sheard, OG Shaq Mason, DL Rufus Johnson and OL Marcus Cannon.
