Patriots declare Stevan Ridley out of Sunday’s game at Cincinnati

It looks like the Patriots will be leaning upon LeGarrette Blount and Brandon Bolden in the running game on Sunday.

The Patriots have ruled out tailback Stevan Ridley for their Week Five game at Cincinnati, the club disclosed on its updated Friday injury report. Ridley hasn’t practiced all week because of a knee injury.

Blount’s role has increased in recent weeks, and he has led the Patriots in rushing yards in each of the last two games. The former Titans and Buccaneers back has gained 155 yards on 34 carries this season, and his 47-yard touchdown run Sunday at Atlanta was a key play in the Patriots’ 30-23 victory against the Falcons.

Bolden, a second-year pro from Mississippi, has rushed for 68 yards on nine carries in 2013.

    And the Pats’ loss of Ridley is only a gain!

    Ridley was so terrible I traded him as a “can’t cut list” player for Cowboys’ reserve tailback Joseph Randle in my fantasy league.

    Ridley was so bad his “can’t cut list” restriction should have come off after week 2.

    He’s not even tradable in a NFL market.

    @doctorrustbelt

    The Patriots just handed Matt Ryan his sixth home loss of his entire career. He’s been in the NFL since 2008.

    Patriots fans have over a decade’s worth of evidence and reasons to feel good about their team’s chances this season. They aren’t even nearly at full strength either. Once Gronk, Amendola, and Vereen come back (signs seem to point to Amendola’s return this week) the offense could be even better then last year. Now they have legit outside the numbers targets in Thompkins and Dobson.

    The day fans of opposing teams stop taking shots at the Patriots is the day I’ll know they aren’t considered as much of a threat anymore.

    I wonder if Atlanta’s problems stem from the fact that Roddy White, Stephen Jackson, Sean Witherspoon, Asante Samuel, and Kroy Biermann are injured.

    I guess it makes you feel better being an uneducated football fan.

    And the patriots had no gronk to Amendola and list wilfork on the firts drive.

    The patriots O was playing with a 3rd string TE an undrafted wr a rookie wr playing in his second game and a 7th round draft pick that was a QB turned WR.

    But if it makes you feel better using injuries as an excuse.

    Rotoworld reported that Brandon Bolden was limping at practice today. Going into Sunday with one healthy RB is not going to get it done. The good news is I just picked up LeGarrette Blount for my fantasy team and I just saved a bunch of money on my car insurance.

    The day fans of opposing teams stop taking shots at the Patriots

    It’s funny reading the straws they’re clutching at these days.

    LOL @ Doctorrustbelt I guess haters are going to hate, oh well. All these people need to think before they hate, but it’s too funny reading their excuses.

    $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$

    Let me put it this way… what if all the players you mentioned were healthy… instead gonzalez, julio and best defensive player (Weatherspoon?) were out… you think they would have any chance of winning?

    Just as long as Goodell keeps giving them a favorable schedule of when they play tough teams the pats are going to be ok.
