Rex Ryan will plan for LeGarrette Blount, not Dion Lewis

ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. -- Rex Ryan made waves Monday in New England when he said "he couldn't even tell you" the name of Patriots running back Dion Lewis, who led the team in rushing yards in last Thursday's opener.

Asked Wednesday if he had learned Lewis' name yet, Ryan responded, "Yeah, [LeGarrette] Blount."

"That's who it's going to be," Ryan continued. "That's who it would have been Week 1 [when Blount was suspended]. So the other kid is who he is. But I mean, c'mon. Blount's their guy. And I know him. He's a big, tough, stud running back.

"That's the guy that's like, 'We throw in this other dude [Lewis]. Hey, guys, guess what? He ain't gonna play.' He'll play on third down, he'll do those types of things.

"He's not gonna be in there. They'll put Blount back there."
