New England Patriots RB Dion Lewis did not play as much as many expected during Super Bowl LI, which opened the door for RB James White to play at a Super Bowl MVP caliber level. There’s a reason for it.
When speaking with the media after the game, Lewis said he tweaked his hamstring early in the game, which led to a reduced role for him in the offense. He came on the field for the final play of regular time during the fake kneeldown and further tweaked it as he was running out of bounds.
Lewis says that he is fine and should be fully healthy within two weeks. There is nothing to be worried about.
