LeGarrette Blount has sprained knee

New England Patriots running back LeGarrette Blount has a sprained medial collateral ligament in his right knee. He's also out for the first game for a suspension for violating the NFL substance-abuse policy. Blount was cut by the Pittsburgh Steelers in November. Jonas Gray will take over when Blount is out.
