Kevin Faulk Has Faith Patriots Running Backs Will Step Up Without Him


Kevin Faulk‘s 2010 season is officially over just two games into the year.

The 34-year-old running back, who suffered a torn ACL against the Jets on Sunday, told the media on Wednesday that he’s “gone now,” and that his season has ended.

“I’m upset for my teammates,” Faulk said. “I’m gone now. Other guys have to step up. Sammy [Morris], BenJarvus [Green-Ellis], Fred [Taylor], [Danny Woodhead].”

But according to one longtime teammate, this isn’t the last New England will see of the 12-year veteran, who admitted he “cried a lot,” when it had happened but he’s finally over the sadness of his season ending prematurely.

“Kevin will come back,” Patriots quarterback Tom Brady added. “He’s come back from everything in his life.

The third-down specialist had eight carries for 45 yards to go with six receptions for 62 yards in the Pats’ first two contests.
