Patriots' LeGarrette Blount: Didn't participate in spring practices
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Blount (hip) didn't participate in any of the Patriots' spring practices, ESPN.com reports.

Blount's status will thus be worth monitoring as training camp approaches, but in the absence of any setbacks with his hip, we'd expect him to move toward the end of reclaiming the Patriots' "big back" role this coming season. Barring any additional moves by the team to address the running back position, Blount's primary competition for the role should come from Joey Iosefa and Tyler Gaffney. Meanwhile, Donald Brown, James White, Brandon Bolden and undrafted rookie D.J. Foster figure to jostle for slotting on the team's depth chart, with the only secure spot on that front belonging to Dion Lewis, who will serve as the team's top pass-catching back, provided he fully recovers from the knee injury that ended his 2015 season early.

Patriots' Dion Lewis: Make an appearance at practice
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Lewis (knee) participated in Monday's voluntary OTAs, ESPN.com reports.

While Lewis' level of participation was not specified, it was notably his first appearance at practice since undergoing surgery in November to repair a torn ACL. Assuming no setbacks, it would appear as though Lewis has a good shot to be healthy in advance of Week 1, at which time he'd presumably work in tandem with power back LeGarrette Blount. Meanwhile, Brandon Bolden, Donald Brown, James White, Tyler Gaffney and D.J. Foster are in line to jostle for depth slotting in the team's backfield.

Patriots' Rob Gronkowski: Back at practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gronkowski (undisclosed) took part in individual drills at Monday's practice, Ben Volin of the Boston Globe reports.

Gronkowski has been limited during the early days of minicamp while dealing with an undisclosed injury, though the team has intimated that it's nothing serious. The Pro Bowler worked with the first team Monday and participated in tight end drills with the rest of the position group, so he appears to have moved past whatever mystery ailment he'd been dealing with.
