It appears Jonas Gray will end his New England career as a one-game wonder.
The former undrafted free agent out of Notre Dame is set to be cut or traded by the Patriots, according to ESPN's Field Yates.
Gray made history against the Colts last November, becoming the first player since at least 1940 to rush for as many touchdowns (four) as the rest of the NFL combined on a given Sunday. He pounded out 199 yards on 38 carries in a game plan specifically designed to exploit Indianapolis' soft interior.
The Week-11 sensation promptly landed in coach Bill Belichick's doghouse for oversleeping and missing practice the next week. An afterthought following the late-season addition of LeGarrette Blount, Gray was a healthy scratch in Super Bowl XLIX.
Although Gray reeled off a 55-yard touchdown run early in the preseason, his lack of high-end speed was noticeable, the story said. As it stands now, the Patriots will enter the season with Brandon Bolden, Dion Lewis, James White and Travaris Cadet in the backfield while Blount serves a one-game suspension. Neither of those four backs are really bell cow type backs. Lewis, White and Cadet all excel in pass-catching roles mostly. It appears Week 1 vs. Pittsburgh will be a committee rushing attack.
