Brandon Bolden missed practice Thursday for the New England Patriots, according to Shalise Young of the Boston Globe. He has not practiced since suffering a knee injury in Week 6 against the Seattle Seahawks.
Fantasy Impact: Optimistic fantasy owners saw the Patriots' bye week as a chance for Bolden to heal up for the back stretch of the season. Unfortunately, the running back is still on the mend, and there is no firm timetable for when he might return.
Those who picked Bolden up after he rushed for 137 yards in Week 4 are forgiven if they have sent the running back down to waivers right now. If/when Bolden is healthy, there is no guarantee he will see the field ahead of Vereen or Woodhead.
