The Patriots' worst fears with Dion Lewis's knee injury were realized just moments ago -- it's a torn ACL and he's done for the season.
Tough news out of Foxborough: #Patriots RB Dion Lewis out for the season with torn ACL per team source.— Jim McBride (@globejimmcbride) November 9, 2015
Of all the injuries the Patriots have sustained this season, this is up there with losing Dont'a Hightower. The Patriots will have to play a little differently on offense with Lewis out, and now they're losing their best overall running back. Lewis fulfilled the role vacated by Shane Vereen as a pass-catching running back and did so much more than just that.
Now, LeGarrette Blount, Brandon Bolden and James White's roles will all be elevated.
