Stevan Ridley dressed for Monday's game against the Eagles. We break down the fantasy implications.

Stevan Ridley dressed for Monday night's game between the New England Patriots and the Philadelphia Eagles, Mike Reiss of ESPN Boston reports. Ridley suffered a right leg injury in practice Thursday, and sat out Friday. He was able to warm up with the team prior to the game, however.

Analysis: We're nearly at halftime and Ridley has yet to make an appearance in the game. The second-year running back may very well sit the entire game, but it is a very good sign that he was able to participate in warm-ups and prepare for the game like normal. How he will be deployed by the Pats remains to be seen. At 5'11, 225 pounds, Ridley is as feature-back ready as any of New England's running backs, and he made the most of his limited carries last season. Unfortunately, the by-committee system doesn't appear going away any time soon.
