The second-year man was also not on the field for the three mandatory minicamp workouts that took place one week later. Now, we know why he was absent during the four practices open to the media: his knee.According to a report by The Athletic’s Jeff Howe, Michel recently underwent a knee arthroscopy and missed the final portion of the Patriots’ offseason workouts because of it — the only time he was spotted was during the team’s Super Bowl celebration that took place last Thursday. Due to the comparatively minor nature of the procedure, the 24-year-old is expected to be ready when New England opens its training camp in late July.This is not the first time Michel’s knee forced him to miss time. Early during last year’s training camp, his first since entering the NFL as a first-round draft pick by the Patriots, he hurt his knee and was forced to miss the entire preseason as well as opening week because of it. In week seven of the regular season, Michel suffered another injury to the same knee and had to sit out New England’s next two contests.He did eventually return White Rex Burkhead Jerseys , however, and quickly reestablished himself as a key cog in the Patriots’ offensive machinery: after New England’s week eleven bye and through the playoffs, the rookie carried the football 174 times for a combined 814 yards and 8 touchdowns. With Michel expected to play a major role in the Patriots’ attack again in 2019, the team will have to hope that he can bounce back equally strong from the latest issue with his knee.Until such a return happens, the club will likely turn to 2019’s third-round draft pick Damien Harris to carry the load: the rookie, who was drafted 87th overall by New England this April, saw considerable practice reps with Michel absent. He could very well take on a bigger role in case the top option misses some time during training camp and the preseason, or if the Patriots want to manage Michel’s workload early during the regular season. Kyle Van Noy is here to stay.As the Reno,NV native has cemented himself as one of the pillars of the Patriots’ roster, it feels almost as if he he’s been here for the better part of a decade — even though it hasn’t even been three full seasons.After being acquired for a bag of footballs in 2016 Rex Burkhead Jerseys 2019 , the former BYU Cougar’s integration within Patriots defense began quickly. After helping the team achieve victory in Super Bowl 51, Van Noy signed his current deal and saw his on-field role take major step forward in 2017, as he was tasked with playing on every down. He played in 66.98% of the team’s defense snaps despite missing three games and barely playing in the team’s final two contests of the regular season. This year he played in all 16 regular season games and participated in 90.7% of the team’s defensive snaps — third on the team behind Stephon Gilmore and Devin McCourty. When a guy is playing more defensive snaps than Patrick Chung in Bill Belichick’s defense, it’s safe to say he’s made it into the circle of trust.Amidst an ascension to this foundational tier of the Patriots’ roster has been a propensity for the former second round pick to have his biggest performances on the biggest of stages. In his last six postseason games, Van Noy has amassed 34 tackles, four tackles for loss, five quarterback hits, two passes defended, two forced fumbles, and four sacks.With a second championship ring currently in production White Adam Butler Jerseys , and with a contract year on the horizon in 2019, the 28-year-old linebacker has more than earned an extension that can adequately compensate him for his increased value to the club — a value that shows no signs of diminishing in the near future.Here’s how Van Noy’s 2019 current $6,291,668 cap figure is broken down:Salary: $4,250,000Signing Bonus Proration: $1,166,668Per-game active roster bonuses: $500,000 ($31,250 for 16 games)$375 Adam Butler Jerseys 2019 ,000 like-to-be-earned incentives for 80% playing timeHere’s what an extension for Van Noy projects to look like:This three-year extension would give Van Noy the ability to earn up to $25.75M in new money while taking him through his age 31 season. Once singed, it would open up $1.775M in 2019 cap space for the Patriots by removing this season’s existing per-game active roster bonuses and incentives, and by converting $3.2M of the existing 2019 salary into part of a $9.2M signing bonus.The signing bonus, his remaining $1.05M 2019 salary, and $2M of his 2020 salary would make up the guaranteed portion of the deal. Starting in 2020, the per-game active roster bonuses and incentives would start up again, giving the team some risk protection. The contract would give Van Noy a healthy boost in APY, boosting him up 11 spots to the 16th-highest paid off-ball linebacker in the NFL — ahead of guys like Avery Williamson, Sean Lee, K.J. Wright White Elandon Roberts Jerseys , Zach Brown, and Danny Trevathan. It would also put him just behind the likes of Demario Davis, Brandon Marshall, Nigel Bradham, and teammate Dont’a Hightower.With Kyle Van Noy clearly in the future plans of the organization, this a solid deal that would accomplish goals for each side — up front cash with a solid guarantee, and back end cap flexibility with built-in risk protection throughout.Follow Brian Phillips on Twitter — @BPhillips_SB
