Stevan Ridley leaves practice with a leg injury

Patriots running back Stevan Ridley left practice early on Thursday with a leg injury, the details of which have not been disclosed.

The Boston Herald calls it a knee injury and says that it could open the door to Shane Vereen or Danny Woodhead to move ahead of Ridley as the No. 1 running back on the depth chart. The Herald also notes that undrafted rookie Brandon Bolden is fighting for a spot on the 53-man roster and may get more opportunities with Ridley out.

The Boston Globe, however, says Ridley suffered a hamstring injury.

Ridley’s status for Monday night’s preseason game against the Eagles isn’t known.

    Not to worry.

    Belichick will probably sign whatever running back Rex Ryan cuts and turn him into another 4 yard per carry RB.

    Mike Reiss said Ridley’s injury didn’t appear serious, and he walked off the field under his own power.

    There are lots of somewhat serious injuries to the knee that would still allow a guy to walk off the field. MCL injury would be in that category, and could keep him out for a while.

    Any time the words “running back” and “knee injury” are used in the same article, it’s usually bad news.
