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.
