​Details have yet to emerge on what exactly happened, but ​Patriots rookie running back Sony Michel exited practice Wednesday morning with some sort of leg issue.


Michel apparently tried to ride an exercise bike for a bit, then gave up, walked over to the medical tent, and soon after left practice. Based on initial appearances, it seemed to be an issue with his left leg.

​​That is bad news for Patriots fans, as the team spent ​this year's first round draft pick on Michel, taking the running back from Georgia with the 31st pick.


Michel split time for the Bulldogs with Nick Chubb throughout his career. Despite Chubb remaining the starter all four years, Michel was at least equally productive, and was drafted before his Georgia teammate; ​Chubb was taken four picks later by Cleveland.

This could be an unfortunate start to Michel's career, however, if he is already missing practice just a few days into training camp.

Hopefully the issue is nothing serious and he'll be back on the field soon.


Stay tuned for further updates.
