Pats-Rams, BenJarvus Green-Ellis

With The Patriots top 2 running backs (top 3 including Lawrence Maroney) Sammy Morris and Lamont Jordan (official word will come out in a few minutes, but neither has been out to warm up) out of todays game-most of the burden of the Pats running game (if not the outcome of todays game) will fall on the young shoulders of undrafted rookie BenJarvus Green-Ellis (more on his name later).

Green-Ellis is a rookie out of the University of Mississippi who last week fared well in his debut with 13 carries for about 65 yards. The big question is can he take the beating of a 20 carry game. He is not big, or should I say not very tall at 5-11, but is about 225 pounds. So yes, I think he can take the beating. He rushed for nearly 4,000 yards during his 4 year career at Ole Miss.

We’ll hear more tonight on sportscenter 5 Overtime from Green-Ellis, who Belichick kept hidden away from media during this entire week. Who knows, Bill may do it again after todays game.
