NESN - [Full Article]

Rookie running back Sony Michel suffered a nasty-looking knee injury on the first play of the second quarter Sunday in the Patriots’ game against the Chicago Bears.

Related players: James White, Kenjon Barner

Fantasy Impact:

Michel’s right knee twisted awkwardly underneath him as Bears defensive tackle Bilal Nichols wrapped him up. He also fumbled on the play, and Chicago recovered. Michel was quickly carted to the Patriots’ locker room following the injury, which leaves New England with White and Barner at running back. He was listed as questionable to return.

Breaking: Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski (back) did not make trip to Chicago with team, per league source. Has NOT been ruled out yet, however.

Adam Schefter also reports the Patriots refuse to rule out Rob Gronkowski, depending on how he feels Sunday. But the signs are not good for Sunday.

Fantasy Impact:

The Patriots have an early kickoff Sunday, but fantasy owners need to be prepared to not have Gronkowski. Not travelling with the team is almost always a sign a player will not play.

The Bears have officially declared Allen Robinson as questionable for Sunday's game versus Patriots. He returned to the practice field today.

Fantasy Impact:

It looks like Robinson should be good to go this weekend in a game the Bears may have to score 25+ points to win. He is a mid-range WR2.
