New England Patriots rookie running back Sony Michel (knee) remained limited in practice on Tuesday, according to running backs coach Ivan Fears. “He’s still under doctors’ care. They haven’t totally freed him up for us to do everything with him, so we’re doing everything we possibly can to keep him up to date,” Fears said. Michel is a promising rookie in a clouded backfield picture. The injury that kept him out for most of training camp and the preseason will also likely keep his role limited to open the season. In the big picture, though, Michel has RB3/flex value behind Rex Burkhead and James White.
