Stevan Ridley will not fumble today for Patriots

If Patriots running back Stevan Ridley is going to get out of his “funk,” he’ll have to do it another day.

The mistake-prone running back was put on the inactive list for today’s game against the Texans, which prevents them from having to bench him.

Ridley has coughed it up in three straight games, and has sought counsel from veterans such as Kevin Faulk to correct his problem.

But it appears they’re going to give him a little more time to think about it.
