Patriots Work Out Boom Herron

NFL News
October 5, 2015

The Patriots worked out former Colts running back Boom Herron on Monday, according to ESPN.com’s Mike Reiss (on Twitter). The Patriots may have been taking a look at Herron in an effort to keep their emergency lists fresh, as Reiss insinuates, but his previous body of work could have New England interested in a deal. Of course, the Pats are also facing the Colts in two weeks and, as teams often do, the Patriots could be looking at Herron as a source of useful information.

Herron, who suffered a sprained AC joint in the Colts’ final preseason game, was waived by the Colts in September. The 26-year-old, who was competing for a role as one of Frank Gore‘s backups, was a sixth-round pick of the Bengals in 2012 and spent the last two years with the Colts. He played in all 16 of the Colts’ regular-season contests in 2014 and rushed for 351 yards and a touchdown, adding 21 catches.
