Patriots RB Stevan Ridley misses Friday practice

New England Patriots running back Stevan Ridley @StevanRidley did not practice Friday. This is his third straight missed practice due to a knee or lower thigh injury. Both RBs Brandon Bolden @BB_HulkSmash and LeGarrette Blount @LG_Blount figure to see more playing time if Ridley is forced out of action.

Fantasy Analysis:

Between Blount and Bolden, the Patriots really have no need to rush Ridley back onto the field. They already have a ton of injuries to contend with whether it is Rob Gronkowski @RobGronkowski, Aaron Dobson @aarondobson17, Danny Amendola @DannyAmendola and the list goes on. Ridley did run well last week, posting 53 yards on 11 carries, good for a 4.8 ypc average. If Ridley does play though, he doesn't qualify for much beyond a low-end RB2. There is too much uncertainty in this backfield and how they will divvy out carries from week-to-week.

Should I plug and play Blount ahead of Ridley and bolden given the injuries for this week?
