Laurence Maroney did not play a single snap Thursday night for the second straight preseason game.
We have no idea what's going on with this situation, and scribes following the team have no explanation to offer up. The rest of the Patriots' first-team played into the fourth quarter, so it seems unlikely that Maroney is being "saved" for the regular season. Sammy Morris started the game, rushing five times for 12 yards. BenJarvus Green-Ellis finished up in the second half with 13 yards on five carries.
Does not look good for the first New England RB coming off the board. It is a lousy situation to begin with but Sammy, Fred and maybe even BGE look to be ahead of him.
