Blount, Easley Injuries End Seasons [VIDEO]
You can add two more Patriots players to the injured reserve list as LeGarrette Blount and Dominique Easley will both have their seasons come to an end with injuries suffered on Sunday.
Blount showed up at Gillette Stadium on crutches Tuesday after suffering a hip injury against the Texans. ESPN's Adam Shefter reports that several sources have indicated his season is over and will be placed on the IR list. Blount is the Pats leading rusher this season with 703 yards and 6 touchdowns. He was instrumental in the teams success last season when they went on to win the Super Bowl.
The Patriots backfield now consists of Brandon Bolden and James White. The team did sign running back Monte Ball to the practice squad.
Easley was placed on IR by the team yesterday with what is being described as a thigh injury. Easley had 15 tackles this season and 10 quarterback hits.
New England will host the Tennessee Titans on Sunday in their final home game of the regular season.
