Sankey was signed off the Patriots practice squad in early November, but the running back didn’t end up making a single appearance with his new team. The former second-round pick has struggled during his two seasons in the league. In 199 career carries, Sankey has run for 762 yards (3.8-yard average) and three touchdowns. The running back also has 32 career receptions for 272 yards and a touchdown.
Sankey was originally brought in following Jamaal Charles‘ knee injury. However, Spencer Ware proved that he was more than capable of carrying the load at running back, while backups Charcandrick West and Knile Davis were presumably more familiar with the offense than Sankey.
