According to Ian Rappaport, Patriots running back Dion Lewis will play tonight against the Dolphins.

The Patriots can now breathe a sigh of relief, as their biggest asset in the running game is returning to the line up. Last week against the Jets, the Patriots only ran the ball nine times, with Tom Brady shouldering the load. They'll need more from the running game tonight.

Lewis missed last week's game against the Jets with an abdomen injury, and it'll be interesting to see if Lewis plays a full game or is limited to a certain number of snaps. Either way, the Patriots offense is getting a big boost tonight.
