Patriots address decision to add RB Jonas Gray to active roster
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(10/17/14) Patriots coach Bill Belichick addressed the decision to promote running back Jonas Gray from the practice squad and the opportunity that he'll get moving forward with Stevan Ridley out for the remainder of the season, per ESPN.
Gray was added to the live rosters hours before Week 7 against the Jets and emerged as the team's second option behind Shane Vereen on Thursday night. He rushed for 12 yards on three carries.
"I think Jonas has been solid for us all the way through preseason," Belichick said. "He's done a good job in practice and got an opportunity last night -- not a lot of opportunities -- but he had some blitz pickup opportunities and a few carries. He works hard and he's a tough kid, a bigger back obviously -- more in the Ridley size range."
Belichick would not indicate whether Gray would be used as the team's second option in the ground game moving forward.
Patriots place Stevan Ridley on IR

|(10/16/14) The Patriots have placed running back Stevan Ridley on IR, according to ESPN.
Ridley will miss the rest of the season after tearing his ACL and MCL. The team has already promoted running back Jonas Gray from the practice squad in order to replace Ridley. Ridley is set to become a free agent following the season.
Report: Stevan Ridley tore ACL, MCL
|by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com|
|(10/13/14) Patriots running back Stevan Ridley tore the ACL and MCL in his right knee Sunday at Buffalo, a source told ESPN. The team has not confirmed that diagnosis but called the injury significant and quickly ruled Ridley out of Thursday's game against Jets.
Ridley is in the final year of his contract.
Patriots' Jerod Mayo, Stevan Ridley ruled out for Thursday night
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(10/13/14) As expected, the Patriots have ruled linebacker Jerod Mayo and running back Stevan Ridley out for Thursday's game at home against the Jets in Week 7, according to the Boston Globe.
Mayo was carted off with a knee injury, while Ridley departed with an ACL injury in Week 6 at Buffalo. According early reports, both injuries are considered significant, which could leave them out for an extended period of time.
The Patriots will host the Bears in Week 8.
Pats' Belichick doesn't think Mayo, Ridley injuries are minor
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(10/13/14) Patriots coach Bill Belichick didn't sound too optimistic during an interview with WEEI Monday about the statuses of linebacker Jerod Mayo and running back Stevan Ridley, who both left Sunday's game at Buffalo due to knee injuries.
"Unfortunately, I don't think it looks too good. I don't think it's minor," Belichick said.
|The best thing that happened to Stevan Ridley this offseason was the Patriots let LeGarrette Blount walk as a free agent, and he signed with the Steelers. The worst thing that happened to Ridley was the Patriots drafted James White from Wisconsin in the fourth round. We thought with Blount gone that Ridley wouldn't have to worry about losing touches if he struggled with fumbles again, but the Patriots could turn to White now if Ridley has problems. And of course there's Shane Vereen, who should be considered the No. 1 Fantasy running back for the Patriots. We're still confident in Ridley as a low-end No. 2 Fantasy rusher, but he has a lot to prove. Hopefully he returns to his 2012 form. Ridley was a horror show from the start of last season when he fumbled in Week 1 at Buffalo. That set a bad tone, and his four fumbles for the season allowed Blount to play a prominent role. Ridley finished the year with 178 carries for 773 yards and seven touchdowns and 10 catches for 62 yards, and he had just four games with double digits in Fantasy points. Now, the key for Ridley this year is trust -- from you as a Fantasy owner and Bill Belichick as a coach. If Belichick commits to Ridley as his primary rusher -- assuming he can cut down on the fumbles -- we could get the 2012 version where he had 1,263 rushing yards and 12 touchdowns. New England was No. 2 in rushing touchdowns last year with 19, so Ridley is easily a candidate for double digits in scores. He's heading into a contract year, so hopefully that motivation helps prevent him from fumbling. We expect Ridley to bounce back, and he's worth the gamble starting in Round 4 of standard leagues and Round 5 in PPR formats.
