Sony Michel's first NFL fumble also came with a bigger cost.

The rookie running back was tackled awkwardly by Bears defensive tackle Bilal Nichols and suffered a knee injury on the play. Michel was in pain right away and needed a lot of assistance getting off the field, not putting any pressure on his left leg. He was then carted to the locker room.

Officially, the Patriots say he's questionable to return.
