The 2020 season was an up and down year for New England Patriots running back Sony Michel.

Despite a career high 5.7 rushing yards per attempt, Michel played in a career-low nine games and saw his starting running back job go to second-year back Damien Harris in his absence after he landed on injured reserve in early October with a quadriceps injury.

Over his first two NFL seasons, Michel rushed for 1,843 yards and 13 touchdowns in 29 regular season games but only logged 449 yards and one rushing score on 79 carries in 2020.

In late November, Michel was activated off injured reserve and appeared to find his groove down the stretch.

Over the final three regular season games, Michel carried the ball 36 times for 219 yards and averaged 6.1 yards a carry.

Harris meanwhile finished the season with a team high 137 carries for 691 yards and two touchdowns in ten games.

With the future of James White and Rex Burkhead uncertain in New England as they both enter free agency, Michel will look to get back to his healthy self that contributed to a Patriots Super Bowl victory three years ago and solidify his spot on the depth chart alongside Harris.

The duo of Harris and Michel has the potential to be a formidable one-two punch for the Patriots offense next season.

Earlier this week, Michel shared a behind-the-scenes look into how his offseason workout regime is going over Instagram.

Take a look for yourself below.

2021 will be an important year in determining Michel’s future in New England as the Patriots will have to decide whether or not to pick up his fifth-year option following the season.
