Maroney, out three weeks with groin injury, returns


MIAMI -- Laurence Maroney is returning to the Patriots backfield after missing three weeks with a groin injury.

Backup Sammy Morris filled in with a pair of 100-yard games before
hurting his chest in last Sunday's win over the Cowboys. Morris is expected to miss this week's game in Miami.

Maroney has rushed for 252 yards this season, averaging 4.7
yards per carry.
