New England Patriots RB Sony Michel (foot) is no longer wearing a walking boot on his surgically repaired foot.
Huddle Up: Michel will be ready for training camp and should receive most of the carries this season but will have to share snaps with several other backs. He should be considered at least a No. 3 running back in fantasy leagues.

New England Patriots RB Sony Michel (foot) had surgery on his foot in May, according to sources. The surgery was a maintenance-based operation to help relieve discomfort that Michel had been experiencing. It's unknown whether he'll be ready for training camp.
Huddle Up: Michel slipped to 3.7 yards per carry last season, and he has dealt with multiple knee injuries. This will be a make-or-break year for him as he enters the fray as a low-end RB2 in fantasy.

Huddle Up: Michel had been listed as questionable after being added to the injury report because of a minor illness Saturday, Dec. 28.
