Stevenson (ankle) recently said he's "feeling great" and would be able to play in a game if the Patriots had one coming up, Nicole Yang of The Boston Globe reports.
Stevenson has been going to physical therapy four or five times per week since missing the final five games of 2023 with a high-ankle injury. It sounds like he'll be ready for the start of the offseason program, heading into the fourth and final year of his rookie contract. Stevenson said he plans on speaking to new coach Jerod Mayo and offensive coordinator Alex Van Pelt about his desire to handle a clear lead role in the backfield, after rotating with Damien Harris in 2022 and Ezekiel Elliott in 2023. Elliott is headed for unrestricted free agency this offseason, leaving Stevenson and 2022 sixth-round pick Kevin Harris as the only RBs from the 2023 roster under contract for 2024.
Stevenson (ankle) has been placed on IR by the Patriots.
With the Patriots eliminated from playoff contention, Stevenson -- who last played in Week 13 -- is officially done for the season. In his absence in Weeks 17 and 18, Ezekiel Elliott is slated to lead the team's backfield, with Kevin Harris mixing in and JaMycal Hasty on hand in reserve.
Stevenson (ankle) remained sidelined at practice Wednesday, Evan Lazar of the Patriots' official site reports.
Given that Stevenson wasn't participating in what Lazar described as a light walk-through Wednesday, the running back's status for Sunday's game against the Bills remains cloudy. Stevenson has missed three straight contests and if he remains out this weekend, Ezekiel Elliott and Kevin Harris would be in line to lead the Patriots' backfield in Week 17.
Stevenson (ankle) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Broncos.
Stevenson didn't practice at all this week and is thus slated to miss his third straight game Sunday. In his continued absence, Ezekiel Elliott will once again serve as New England's lead back. Stevenson's next chance to suit up will come Dec. 31 against the Bills in Week 17.
Stevenson (ankle) wasn't on the field at the start of Friday's practice, Evan Lazar of the Patriots' official site reports.
Stevenson also didn't practice Wednesday or Thursday and his continued absence Friday suggests that the running back is trending toward being ruled out for Sunday night's game against the Broncos. If Stevenson remains sidelined this weekend, Ezekiel Elliott would once again lead New England's backfield in Week 16.
Stevenson (ankle) wasn't spotted at practice Thursday, Mike Reiss of ESPN.com reports.
Stevenson didn't practice Wednesday, so his continued absence Thursday sets the stage for what, if any, work the running back does during Friday's session to loom large in terms of his chances of suiting up Sunday night against the Broncos. If Stevenson -- who last saw action in Week 13 -- remains sidelined this weekend, Ezekiel Elliott would be in line to continue to lead the Patriots' backfield in Week 16.
Stevenson (ankle) wasn't spotted at Wednesday's practice, Evan Lazar of the Patriots' official site reports.
Stevenson hasn't practiced or played since spraining his ankle against the Chargers on Dec. 3. Ezekiel Elliott has started New England's last two games, and Kevin Harris has been added to the active roster after scoring the touchdown as a Week 15 practice squad elevation. Stevenson will have two more opportunities to return to practice before the Patriots publish their injury report ahead of Sunday's game against the Broncos.
Stevenson (ankle) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Chiefs.
Stevenson hasn't practiced since injuring his ankle and now will miss a second straight game. Ezekiel Elliott played 91 percent of snaps in last Thursday's 21-18 win over the Steelers, taking 29 touches for 140 yards and a touchdown on a night when QB Bailey Zappe was the only other Patriot with a rush attempt. Stevenson's next chance to play is Sun., Dec. 24 against the Broncos (Week 16).
Stevenson (ankle) wasn't spotted at Friday's practice, Evan Lazar of the Patriots' official site reports.
Stevenson hasn't been able to practice this week and appears to be trending toward missing Sunday's game against the Chiefs. If the Patriots rule Stevenson out later Friday, the stage would be set for Ezekiel Elliott to continue to lead the team's backfield in Week 15.
