This was also the case on Wednesday, but it is progress for Ridley, who did not practice at all last week and sat out versus the Bengals. Ridley missed time due to a knee injury sustained two weeks ago versus the Falcons, and his status has yet to be upgraded from his "questionable" designation.
Fantasy Spin: To say Ridley's season has been a disappointment thus far would be an understatement, as the consensus second-round fantasy pick has posted a paltry 174 rushing yards while splitting time with the likes of Brandon Bolden and LeGarrette Blount.
With Ridley failing to produce up to this point, and due to the Patriots' game set to start at 4:25 p.m. ET, owners ought to have a contingency plan in place once again. If he is truly a game-time decision and he winds up sitting, his owners won't have much to choose from if they had him initially penciled into the lineup. Having a backup plan for Ridley should not be a big stretch since his owners had to have one with his absence last week.
