Unreal, it seems like every time the Patriots find themselves a running back that looks stellar, they end up getting hurt.
The Patriots lost their second fumble of the first half when running back Sony Michel lost the ball while being spun down hard by Bears defensive tackle Bilal Nichols.
They also may have lost Michel for the rest of the day. Michel needed to be helped off the field after having his lower leg bent awkwardly on his way to the ground. It looked pretty nasty:

He was taken to the sideline and then loaded onto a cart for a trip to the locker room. He’s being called questionable to return with a knee injury.

James White and Kenjon Barner are the other running backs active for the Patriots on Sunday. Michel had four carries for 22 yards and a catch for 14 yards before being injured. Hopefully the injury to Michel isn’t serious.
