Jonas Gray hopes to return to Patriots' plans


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(3/1/2015) Jonas Gray burst on the scene for the Patriots last season, rushing for 201 yards and four touchdowns in a Sunday night game. Just as quickly, he was gone. 

Gray overslept and was late for practice, and coach Bill Belichick didn't give him another chance to showcase his skills. Gray was inactive for the Super Bowl. 

Gray learned his lesson. "The tough part for me was to watch it, and not participate in a matter I thought I should," he told Dan Hanzus of NFL.com. "But it's motivation going into the offseason. I just know I need to work harder, so I'll never get myself in that position again." 

Still on the Patriots, Gray believes he'll get a clean slate next season, and he's spending the offseason preparing himself for the opportunity. 

I tell them, I'm going to have a Jerry Rice/Walter Payton mentality where whatever you do isn't enough," Gray said. "I'm going to have a work ethic where I know, in my heart of hearts, I'm going to outwork everybody. That's what I hope to achieve


Jonas Gray among Patriots' inactives for Super Bowl 49


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(2/1/2015) Patriots running back Jonas Gray will be inactive for Super Bowl 49 along with Zach Moore, Josh Boyce, Brian Tyms, Joe Vellano, Jordan Devey and James White, the team announced.

Gray, who ran for 412 yards on 89 carries in eight games this season, had four carries for four yards in the AFC Championship game for New England. It was his first action in a game since Dec. 21 againt the Jets when he had six carries for five yards.

The game is currently pick'em between Seattle and New England Sunday.


Patriots' Jonas Gray (ankle) hoping to be active for AFC title game


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(1/16/2015) Patriots running back Jonas Gray led New England in rushing during the regular season with 412 yards, with most of them coming in a Nov. 16 win at Indianapolis, as he racked up 201 rushing yards and a franchise-best four touchdowns.

Unfortunately, after the breakout game against the Colts, Gray wasn't much of a factor down the stretch. In fact, he was inactive for the final regular season game and last week's divisional playoff win vs. Baltimore due to an ankle injury.

Gray is hoping to be active for Sunday's rematch with the Colts in the AFC title game.

“It would mean a lot, man,” Gray said about receiving carries in Sunday’s playoff game, per the team's official website. “Honestly, it would be -- it would mean a lot. I’m excited, man. Hopefully I’ll have an opportunity, but I’m just waiting and we’ll see what happens. No idea. No idea. Just wait and see. Just like the game plan, you don’t know how things will go. 

“Same way with being active and inactive. You don’t know whether you’re going to play or not each week. You want to be able to contribute to winning an AFC championship, being a part of something great. Like anyone else on this team, (I’m) worried about the preparation, doing whatever I can to help the team.”


Patriots unveil inactives for divisional round against Ravens


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(1/10/2015) The Patriots have deemed the following players as inactive for Saturday's divisional round game against the Ravens: Josh Boyce, Jordan Devey, Zach Moore, Steve Maneri, Cameron Fleming, James White and Jonas Gray.

Gray, who 89 carries for 412 yards and five touchdowns in the regular season, is dealing with an ankle injury. Gray was listed as probable throughout the week.

The Patriots are 7-point favorites against Baltimore Saturday.


Tom Brady, Julian Edelman probable for Patriots


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(1/9/2015) The Patriots should have both Tom Brady and Julian Edelman against the Ravens on Saturday. 

Brady is listed with an ankle injury, but should play. He's been listed on the injury report every week this season, but always plays. Edelman is getting over a concussion, but will attempt to play through it.

The team will also have Jonas Gray and Brandon LaFell for the contest. Both players were also listed as probable. Gray is coming back from an ankle issue. LaFell has a shoulder and toe injury.


Three Patriots still limited Thursday


by Larry Hartstein | Senior Analyst
(1/8/2015) Patriots receivers Brandon LaFell (shoulder/toe) and Julian Edelman (concussion) and running back Jonas Gray (ankle) remained limited in practice Thursday ahead of Saturday's divisional playoff game against the Ravens. All are expected to play.

Running back LeGarrette Blount, limited Wednesday by an illness, was able to practice fully Thursday. 

The Patriots are 7-point home favorites.


Four key Patriots limited in practice Wednesday


by Larry Hartstein | Senior Analyst
(1/7/2015) Four key Patriots were limited in practice Wednesday ahead of Saturday's divisional playoff game against the Ravens: receivers Julian Edelman (concussion) and Brandon LaFell (shoulder/toe), and running backs LeGarrette Blount (illness) and Jonas Gray (ankle).

All are fully expected to play. Quarterback Tom Brady practiced fully despite being listed with an ankle injury. Coming off a bye week, New England is a 7-point home favorite.


Patriots' inactives filled with stars on both sides of the ball


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(12/28/2014) The Patriots have listed the following players as inactive for Sunday's game against the Bills: Dan Connolly, Sebastian Vollmer, Julian Edelman, Rob Gronkowski, Jonas Gray, Dont'a Hightower and Brandon Browner.

Gray missed Friday's practice while dealing with an ankle injury and was ruled out for the game. 

Browner (groin) and Hightower (shoulder) were both questionable coming into the contest.

The Patriots have also clinched a first-round bye and home-field advantage throughout the playoffs.


Patriots list lengthy injury report for final regular season game


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/26/2014) The Patriots listed 18 players on its final injury report for Week 17 against Buffalo. Quarterback Tom Brady (ankle) was the only player on the report listed as probable, while running back Jonas Gray (ankle) and cornerback Alfonzo Dennard (hamstring) were ruled out. The rest were deemed questionable.

The others include long snapper Danny Aiken (finger), cornerback Kyle Arrington (hamstring), running back LeGarrette Blount (shoulder), cornerback Brandon Browner (groin), linebacker Jamie Collins, offensive lineman Dan Connolly (knee), wide receiver Julian Edelman (thigh, concussion), offensive lineman Cameron Fleming (ankle), linebacker Dont'a Hightower (shoulder), defensive end Chandler Jones (hip), wide receiver Brandon LaFell (shoulder), defensive end Rob Ninkovich (heel), running back Shane Vereen (ankle), offensive tackle Sebastian Vollmer and linebacker Chris White (ankle).


Patriots' Jonas Gray skips practice on Friday


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/26/2014) Patriots running back Jonas Gray, who was a limited participant Thursday with an ankle injury, was not spotted at practice Friday, leading up to New England's Week 17 showdown against the Bills, ESPN reports.

Gray carried the ball six times for 5 yards and a score in Week 16 against the Jets. He has 412 rushing yards this season. If he's unable to play, the team will likely turn to LeGarrette Blount and Shane Vereen to shoulder the rushing workload.

The Patriots opened as an 8 1/2-point favorite at home on Sunday. The line has dropped to 4 1/2 points, per Vegas Insider.


Patriots' backfield remains an enigma


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/21/2014) LeGarrette Blount was out for Week 16 at the Jets with a shoulder injury, which meant surely the Patriots would make Jonas Gray their go-to running back. After all, he had a 200-yard, four-touchdown game earlier this season and finally got out of coach Bill Belichick's doghouse with 11 carries for 62 yards last week.

Wrong again.

Gray was the Patriots' only running back to score a touchdown in Week 16, plunging in from 1 yard out in the fourth quarter, but to say he was the go-to back would be disingenuous. He and Shane Vereen tied for the team lead in carries with six, but Brandon Bolden also had five. And Vereen and Bolden were both more productive with their carries, averaging 6.3 yards and 6.4 yards, respectively, than Gray was with his, averaging 0.8 yards.

And then there's the fact that Vereen is far and away the best pass-catcher of the three, but he was hardly involved in the passing game on a quiet day for quarterback Tom Brady.

So basically, you wouldn't have gone right with any of Blount's three replacements, and considering they were all equally involved, you have to wonder how they'll impact Blount's role if he returns Week 17 against Buffalo. Given that it's a tough matchup anyway, you might just want to avoid every Patriots running back.


Patriots RB Jonas Gray finds the end zone in win over Jets


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/21/2014) Patriots running back Jonas Gray had only six carries but made one of them count for six in his team's 17-16 victory over the Jets in Week 16.

Gray barreled his way into the end zone from 1-yard out in the fourth quarter to give his team the lead for good. He carried the ball six times for 5 yards and a score. He has 412 rushing yards this season.

The Patriots will end the regular season at home against the Bills.


Patriots RB LeGarrette Blount (shoulder) won't play Sunday


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/20/2014) Patriots running back LeGarrette Blount, who entered Week 16 questionable with a shoulder injury, will not play Sunday against the Jets, the team announced on Saturday. If Blount does in fact sit out, Bill Belichick will likely roll with Jonas Gray and Shane Vereen for the majority of the load.

The Patriots remain a 10 1/2-point favorite on the road against the Jets.


Patriots' Jonas Gray outrushes LeGarrette Blount in Week 15 win


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/14/2014) Patriots running back Jonas Gray led the team in rushing in Week 15 against Miami.

Gray took five of his 11 carries on the final drive of the game to run out the clock and secure a 41-13 victory. He finished with 62 rushing yards, averaging 5.6 yards per attempt. LeGarrette Blount scored a touchdown on a 3-yard run in the third quarter. Blount carried the ball eight times for 17 yards and a score.

New England will face the Jets in Week 16.


Patriots backs split the work in Week 15


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(12/14/2014) Patriots running back LeGarrette Blount salvaged his day with a trip to the end zone, but did little to impress otherwise in a 41-13 win over the Dolphins.  

The Patriots entered the game intent on relying on Blount, but he just couldn't get much going for the second week in a row. After rushing for just 66 yards on 20 carries last week, he was even less effective Sunday, finishing with 17 yards on eight carries.

Blount's subpar day even allowed the Patriots to dust off Jonas Gray , who received his most extensive work since his four-touchdown game four weeks ago. He led the team with 62 yards on 11 carries, and looked altogether like the better back of the two Sunday.

Blount looked very good in his first two games since joining the Patriots, averaging 6.2 yards on 22 carries. However, he has just 2.9 yards per carry on 28 since. Blount doesn't even have a monopoly on the goal-line work, as Shane Vereen scored from 3 yards out as well Sunday.

The Patriots have three backs who have shown they can be solid contributors whenever they get the chances. Of course, from a Fantasy perspective that might as well mean they don't have any running backs, because you can't know who is going to shine on any given day. The Patriots have a tough matchup on the way in Week 16 against the Jets, so you might be better off avoiding their backfield for that one. 


Patriots RB LeGarrette Blount leads rushing attack in Week 14 win


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(12/7/2014) Patriots running back LeGarrette Blount served as the team's primary rushing threat Sunday, picking up 66 yards on 20 carries and adding 11 yards on two receptions in his team's 23-14 win over the Chargers in Week 14.

Blount didn't find paydirt in the win but earned the vast majority of the carries, with Jonas Gray and Shane Vereen totaling three carries. Gray managed nine yards on two carries and wasn't a factor in the passing game. Vereen gained just one yard on his only carry but added three receptions for 30 yards in the passing game. Neither Gray or Vereen scored a touchdown. Blount figures to remain the team's primary ball-carrier heading into a Week 15 matchup with the Dolphins.


Patriots running backs continue to confound


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(12/1/2014) Patriots coach Bill Belichick has a longstanding tradition of zigging when Fantasy owners expect him to stay in a nice, predictable zag, and he did it again in Week 13 with his running backs.

Shane Vereen still played the majority of the team's snaps Sunday against the Packers, but was largely a nonfactor in the loss. He had just three carries and one reception, and was only targeted twice in the passing game overall.

LeGarrette Blount led the team in rushing for the second week in a row since signing as a free agent, however this time he didn't get the goal-line work. Blount, who scored twice the previous week, ceded a goal-line carry to little-used reserve Brandon Bolden, who scored his first touchdown of the season, while finishing with three carries for 17 yards overall.

Jonas Gray , the star of the team's Week 11 win, was back on the field after failing to touch the ball in Week 12, but had just one carry for 4 yards.

Belichick knows he can wring value out of any back he chooses, which is what makes this situation so perpetually frustrating for Fantasy owners. Any back could get work in any situation any week, but it still looks like Blount and Vereen are going to be the team's top options moving forward. Relying on anyone here on a weekly basis is frustrating, but Blount and Vereen are the only ones that are must-own players down the stretch. 


Patriots backup rushers can't do much Week 13


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(11/30/2014) The Patriots backup rushers could not do much Week 13 against the Packers.

Brandon Bolden managed to make an impact despite limited work. He carried the ball three times for 17 yards, but one of those attempts went for a 6 yard touchdown. Bolden was not involved in the passing game. Shane Vereen also had three carries, but gained just 6 yards. He caught one ball for 26 yards during the contest. Jonas Gray also made an appearance, picking up 4 yards on one carry. 

The trio will look for more Week 14 against the Chargers. 


Jonas Gray will play Week 13; share RB workload with Blount?


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/30/2014) Patriots running back Jonas Gray will play Sunday at Green Bay a week after not seeing any game action, a source told CBSSports.com NFL Insider Jason La Canfora. 

Gray was late to the team's facilities a few days after having a breakthrough game Week 11 and was sent home that day as a result. He was active Week 12 against the Lions, but he did not see any snaps as newly signed running back LeGarrette Blount paced the rushing attack.

However, Gray is slated to have a role Week 13, but depending on how the game progresses, there could be considerable work for both players, according to La Canfora. New England wants to establish a power running presence Sunday due to the weather in Green Bay and with the playoffs looming since both backs could play a key role in the postseason.


LeGarrette Blount makes Jonas Gray an afterthought


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(11/23/2014) This take on both LeGarrette Blount and Jonas Gray comes with an important caveat: Both running backs play for the Patriots, who are coached by Bill Belichick, who has proven time and time again that he'll do whatever he wants, regardless of conventional wisdom or media pressure. So if he decides Gray has learned his lesson for showing up late to practice Friday and turns back to him as the team's primary ball carrier Week 13 at Green Bay, it would come as a surprise to no one.

But I'm certainly not counting on it.

Facing the league's No. 1 run defense, Blount was really good Week 12 against Detroit, rushing 12 times for 78 yards and two touchdowns only three days after signing with the Patriots. Granted, he was with them last year and knows the offense, but still, bonus points for the quick turnaround.

Belichick loved giving him the ball at the goal line last year and clearly doesn't owe Gray anything. Gray was clearly a right-place-at-the-right-time guy, getting a starter's workload in an offense where he could do no wrong only because Stevan Ridley suffered a season-ending injury. And he blew it.

Let's hold on to him one more week just to be sure, but you wouldn't want to start Gray in Week 13. And if Blount is available in your league, pick him up.


Patriots RB Jonas Gray benched in favor of LeGarrette Blount


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(11/23/2014) Just a week removed from a dominant 201-yard, four-touchdown performance, Patriots running back Jonas Gray was benched for not arriving to practice on time earlier in the week. As a result, Gray watched his new running mate LeGarrette Blount rumbled into the end zone twice in New England's 34-9 victory over the Lions in Week 12.

"We do what we think is the best. That’s what we did today," coach Bill Belichick said.


Brady, Edelman, Gray among notable Patriots actives Week 12


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(11/23/2014) As expected, Patriots quarterback Tom Brady (ankle), wide receiver Julian Edelman (thigh) and running back Jonas Gray (not injury related) were ruled as active for Week 12. All three players entered Sunday as probable. Gray is the only player of the three that isn't expected to start.

Patriots running back Jonas Gray will be active Week 12


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/23/2014) Patriots running back Jonas Gray will be active Sunday against the Lions, according to CBSSports.com NFL Insider Jason La Canfora.

However, Gray has been told he will not start Week 12, according to ESPN. Game circumstances and production will dictate how much Gray plays, according to La Canfora.

Gray was reportedly sent home from practice Friday after he showed up late. It's unfortunate timing for Gray, who was a standout during a Week 11 win at Indianapolis. Gray rushed for 201 yards and four touchdowns last week.


Brady, Edelman, Gray among notable Patriots probables Week 12


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(11/21/2014) The Patriots have ruled Cameron Fleming (ankle, finger) and Chandler Jones (hip) out for Sunday's game against Detroit, according to New England's final injury report released Friday.

Deemed questionable were Marcus Cannon (hip), Dominique Easley (knee) and Nate Ebner (finger). As expected, Tom Brady (ankle), Julian Edelman (thigh) and Jonas Gray (not injury related) were ruled as probable for Week 12.


Report: Patriots send Jonas Gray home after arriving late


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(11/21/2014) Patriots running back Jonas Gray overslept, causing him to miss Friday's practice session, Mike Garafolo of FOX Sports reports. According to the report, Gray didn't wake up in time for practice after his phone died. He showed up late to Gillette Stadium, but was immediately sent home by Bill Belichick.

Gray's status now appears a bit uncertain after the incident, considering the team signed LeGarrette Blount, who is familiar with Belichick's system, on Thursday.

Earlier in the season, Belichick sent star cornerback Darrelle Revis home for being late to practice during a blizzard, per the Boston Globe. Like Gray, Revis also overslept. However, Revis apologized to the team and was able to play the following week against the Bears.

Gray has texted his teammates to apologize and plans to meet with Belichick and the rest of his teammates later in the day to apologize, per the report.
