New England's newest weapon on offense had to leave today's game in Seattle with a knee injury.

Patriots running back Brandon Bolden left today's game against Seattle with a knee injury and his return is questionable. Bolden is New England's leading rusher in the contest with six carries for 28 yards, but the run-heavy Patriots have thrown it nearly three times as much as they've run it today.

Bolden, a rookie free agent, has broken out recently for New England and has 37 carries for 206 yards this season. Most of that came in the last two weeks including 137 yards against the Buffalo Bills in Week 4. Backfield-mate Stevan Ridley has eight carries for 15 yards but the Patriots might lean on their successful passing game if and when they pull away from the Seahawks. Bolden was questionable for today's game with a knee injury already and that could cause the Patriots to be a little extra careful with their young back.

New England currently leads 20-10 in the third quarter.
