Patriots Rule Out Running Back For Week 15

The New England Patriots face a massive task on Sunday when they take on the Las Vegas Raiders, and while the team in front of them is tough enough, they'll also likely have playoff standings in their mind too, and after the Dolphins loss to Buffalo, they have a chance to solidify themselves as a true contender in the AFC in 2022. 

Now, they face the prospect of a very tough, and very hot Las Vegas Raiders, and to take them down, they'll need to find a more consistent offence, so ruling out one of their starting running backs is the last thing that they wanted to do, but today, they had to, as Damien Harris won't be available for this crucial clash. 

On the year, Harris has 450 All-Purpose yards to go along with 3 Touchdowns, and for the most part, has lost a lot of touches to Rhamondre Stevenson, but still plays a valuable role, and if New England want to go deep in the playoffs, they'll need to get him healthy.
