The Patriots finished the 2009, 2010, 2011, 2014 and 2016 seasons with five running backs. The Patriots carried just four running backs for most of the 2015 season, and it wound up biting them squarely on the backside. Dion Lewis and LeGarrette Blount hit injured reserve, forcing the Patriots to serve cups of coffee to Joey Iosefa, Trey Williams and Steven Jackson.
