Is Maroney on the out in New England?

After getting just eight carries in the first two preseason games, Patriots running back Laurence Maroney did not get one touch in the all-important third preseason contest Thursday night against the Rams. Instead, Bill Belichick elected to start veteran Sammy Morris and feature BenJarvus Green-Ellis (aka The Law Firm) off the bench. L. Maroney (US Presswire)

Belichick was asked about Maroney’s lack of involvement afterwards. "We never had the ball,” he said. Some have accused Belichick of side-stepping the question. But he has somewhat of a point. The Patriots ran only 36 plays on the night, which is about half the number of plays a typical game yields.

But still, that means there were 36 chances to get Maroney the ball. Isn’t he supposed to be the team’s starting running back? So far this preseason, that doesn’t appear to be the case.

The Patriots could conceivably cut the former first-round pick. After all, Morris and fellow veteran Fred Taylor can share the starting snaps. And Kevin Faulk remains one of the best third-down backs in the league. Factor in Green-Ellis and the exit down becomes easy to open for Maroney.
