2008 NFL Football Season: Laurence Maroney Placed On Injured Reserve

The Patriots have placed Laurence Maroney on injured reserve today because of shoulder problems. Maroney was the Patriots first round draft pick in 2006 and has been somewhat of a disappointment. The last two years he has constantly been injured and when he is in the lineup he doesn’t see holes very well and runs tentatively. I suspect Maroney might get one more shot next year to see what he can do, but I don’t expect to see him the league too much longer. It’s unfortunate because he has the potential to be an excellent running back with his speed and moves in the open field.

Right now the Patriots will rely on Sammy Morris, Kevin Faulk, and LaMont Jordan. Heath Evans will likely see some carries as well. I hope they sign another running back soon.
