MNF: Patriots RB Sony Michel returns to practice, doubtful for Week 8

After suffering a knee injury last week that was reportedly a week-to-week injury, which usually means out for at least one game, Sony Michel, surprisingly returned to practice Saturday, giving him an outside chance to play Monday night in Buffalo.

However, he is officially listed as doubtful to play.

Relayed players: James White, Kenjon Barner, Kenneth Farrow

Fantasy Impact: 

A Monday night kick doesn't help Michel owners with making a decision on him this week. It's likely he won't play this week, given the news leading up to today, but this is definitely a good long term sign for those with Michel on their fantasy teams. Keep an eye out to see if the Patriots promote Kenneth Farrow from the practice squad, who was seen receiving hand-offs from Tom Brady earlier this week. If Farrow is promoted to the active roster, it's likely a sign Michel will be inactive Monday night. Regardless, this does not change James White's status as a strong Week 8 start.
