Bill Belichick offers alternate reasons for Patriots rookie Demario Douglas’ apparent benching – Boston Herald

FOXBORO — Patriots rookie wide receiver Demario Douglas was taught a lesson on Sunday night: fumble and you might not see the field again.

Douglas did not appear to play any offensive snaps after losing a fumble on the final play of the first quarter in the Patriots’ 24-17 Week 2 loss to the Dolphins. Douglas caught a target from quarterback Mac Jones on third-and-8 from the Dolphins’ 39-yard line. He had enough yards to convert the third down before Dolphins edge defender Bradley Chubb chopped at his arm from behind, dislodging the football. Patriots running back Rhamondre Stevenson jumped on the football but couldn’t secure it. Chubb came away with the recovery.
