| Blount in Pittsburgh dealing with legal matters|
Ankle injury keeps Shane Vereen limited
By: Jake Gordon | Wed Dec 10, 3:48 pm
|FOXBOROUGH — The Patriots were without two high-profile players at practice on Wednesday, but for very different reasons.
Defensive lineman Dominique Easley (knee) missed practice, as did running back LeGarrette Blount (not injury related). Blount, according to reports, was in Pittsburgh in court to appeal an August charge for possession of marijuana.
As usual, the Patriots had a laundry list of limited participants in practice. Long-snapper Danny Aiken (concussion), left guard Dan Connolly (ankle), wide receiver Julian Edelman (thigh), offensive tackle Cameron Fleming (ankle), linebacker Dont'a Hightower (shoulder), defensive end Chandler Jones (hip), wide receiver Brandon LaFell (shoulder), running back Shane Vereen (ankle), and linebacker Chris White (ankle) were all limited in practice
FFToday's Take: Blount was given 50 hours of community service stemming from his marijuana possession charge early this year. Nonetheless, he remains the most fantasy worthy running back heading into Sunday's tilt with the Dolphins. Shane Vereen, who was limited in practice Wednesday, has only had eight touches over the past two weeks and will be a risky fantasy start if cleared to play.
