New England Patriots RB Stevan Ridley lost a fumble during the second preseason game and did not return to the game. It is not known if the benching was due to the fumble.

New England Patriots RB James White saw a number of reps with the first-team offense in practice Wednesday, Aug. 13, with RB Stevan Ridley seeing most of his reps with the second-team offense. RB Shane Vereen also saw some reps with the top unit.
Fantasy Tip: White has reportedly impressed the coaching staff, and his presence could eat into the touches of Ridley if he continues to impress late in the preseason. The running back picture is shaping up as a three-headed monster (what else is new?) in New England. Ridley and Vereen are still the most promising as far as fantasy value is concerned, but White is emerging as a deep sleeper.

New England Patriots RB Stevan Ridley appears to be lighter and faster this offseason as he enters the final year of his rookie deal, according to NFL.com's Albert Breer. Ridley is expected to be the lead back in the team's backfield with RB LeGarrette Blount now with the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Fantasy Tip: Ridley could return as a solid RB2 if he can hang onto the football. He's clearly more valuable in standard-scoring formats if he's able to regain the lead role and find the end zone frequently.

The New England Patriots haven't approached RB Stevan Ridley, who is in the final year of his rookie deal, about a long-term contract extension, according to NFL.com's Albert Breer.

New England Patriots RB Stevan Ridley is focused on playing mistake-free football and not his contract situation. Ridley is entering the final year of his rookie contract.
Fantasy Tip: Relying on Ridley as anything more than a low-end No. 2 fantasy running back isn't advised. The Patriots will ride the hot hand, and Ridley has fell out of favor with Bill Belichick in the past for a lack of ball protection.
Fri, 28 Mar 2014 16:23:51 -0700
New England Patriots RBs Stevan Ridley, Shane Vereen and Brandon Bolden are entering the final years of their contracts.
Fri, 17 Jan 2014 16:28:11 -0800
New England Patriots RB Stevan Ridley has been fined $5,250 for a uniform violation during the Divisional Round playoff game.
Sun, 12 Jan 2014 10:15:00 -0800
New England Patriots RB LeGarrette Blount received 26 offensive snaps during the Divisional Round playoff game while RB Shane Vereen received 24 snaps and Stevan Ridley received 23 snaps.
Mon, 09 Dec 2013 09:28:23 -0800
New England Patriots RB Stevan Ridley was active and saw the field for 17 offensive snaps in the team's Week 14 game against the Cleveland Browns. He was used in a committee running back approach that included RBs Shane Vereen and LeGarrette Blount.
Fantasy Tip: Ridley was the third back up in the rotation because his ball-security issues have put him in the doghouse. It's good to see him back, but Vereen is clearly the most valuable runner in this backfield, especially in PPR leagues. Ridley is a risky start moving forward.
Sun, 08 Dec 2013 08:48:33 -0800
New England Patriots RB Stevan Ridley is active for the team's Week 14 game.
Fantasy Tip: Ridley is back after being inactive for last week's game. Ridley's participation is not known at this point, but owners would be taking a big risk if they used him in their starting lineup this week.
