The New England Patriots have put running back Laurence Maroney on injured reserve with a shoulder injury, ending his season.

Tough year for the Pats just got even tougher. Granted Maroney didn't do much this year or really his whole career, but it is tough when your main running back goes down for the year.

Both Jordon and Morris are better backs than Maroney who's pretty much a bust. Atleast the "O" line will feel better knowing Laurence won't be running into the cracks of their A's anymore this year.

How's Morris's injury? Too bad, I always liked Sammy as a Bill. As for Harrison (sayonara to his career, I suspect), that's another story entirely.....

All that was reported is Morris injuried his knee and wouldn't return tonight.
I think Harrison will retire at the end of the season and even if he doesn't his contract is up and I don't think the pats will resign him anyway.

I remember watching Maroney his first year and jsut being terrified that the Pats now had a beast at running back to go with everything else. how quickly things change.

I think it's tough for a RB to get a around 10 carries a game and be hugely successful. His numbers weren't bad the previous two seasons for the amount of times he touched the football. If Belicheck wasn't throwing hail mary's up by 40 last year he would've had many more yds.
