Kevin Faulk has been away from Patriots' camp because of personal reasons. According to the Boston Herald, however, Faulk may also be injured. He suffered a knee injury in the Patriots' third preseason game against the Panthers, and it is not known how severe the injury is.
Faulk is the Pats' third down back and is also expected to spell Corey Dillon from time to time. If he is injured, that would likely mean more touches for Dillon, as well as a move up the depth chart for Mike Cloud, who rushed 19 times for 93 yards on Thursday night. We'll keep you updated on this situation, as it could slightly affect the way in which Dillon is used this year.

Could increase Dillon's usage and overall value...
