FOXBOROUGH, Mass. — New England might have found a running back in undrafted free agent Ralph Webb.
Washington may have lost one with a knee injury to second-round pick Derrius Guice.
Webb ran for two touchdowns and also scored on a pair of 2-point conversions on Thursday night as the defending AFC champions rallied from a 17-0 first-half deficit to beat Washington 26-17 in the teams’ exhibition openers.
“I’ve been working my whole life for this, to come out here and get a chance to compete,” said Webb, who was undrafted out of Vanderbilt and listed ninth among nine running backs on the Patriots’ depth chart.
